Gay Marriage?

Thank you in advance to whoever accepts this debate. Same-sex couples should be allowed to publicly celebrate their commitment in the same way as heterosexual couples. The Human Rights Campaign Foundation states that many same-sex couples "want the right to legally marry and honor their relationship in the greatest way our society has to offer..." Same-sex couples should have access to the same benefits enjoyed by heterosexual married couples. Many benefits are only available to married...

Gay Marriage

Let"s take a definitional approach to the "gay marriage" argument and consider the question: who determines the constitution of marriage? This easily pulls focus from both the legal and social components of this arrangement. Furthermore, this clarifies the logistics of whom and what opinions are held at a higher regard in this debate, which often times concerns the sanctity of marriage. Religion holds a considerable amount of weight within this debate. As rebuttal, let us consider the theocrac...

According to a poll surveyed by Gallup (1), 55% of American citizens believe gay marriage should be legalized. It's because I agree with the majority of Americans, that I stand in affirmation of the resolution, Resolved: Gay marriage should be legalized in the US (1) http://www.gallup.com/poll/117328/marriage.aspx...

I don't know if I'm even doing this correctly, however, I saw this site today on accident and read your comment, "Homosexuality is a mental illness as it was considered to be until 1973." It amused me so much that I had to make an account just to tell you how ignorant and juvenile it is. Don't get me wrong, the rest of your debate is flawed as well but this comment outshines the rest. Let's put what you said in perspective, shall we. Homosexuality was considered a mental illness. Black people w...

One of the biggest issues for the US government is the issue of whether gay marriage should be legalized or not. I would say that the answer is simple, the US Constitution says (all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness)- www.archives.gov The rights for a man to love, be with, and be married to another man, or a woman to do the same with another woman with the same legal right...

Gay marriage should be legal

Why and how is same-sex marriage a good, positive way to host a society? This world's kids don't need more broken families (i.e. divorced parents, stress because of differences/controversy). The world in general doesn't need more exposure to AIDS. Don't we want to "coexist?" Gay marriage sets religious people and secular people even more apart. BOP (burden of proof) is mostly on Pro because he/she needs to provide reasons gay marriage is good for society. I, Con, will only debunk and rebut,...

Gay Marriage should be legalized in Australia

Gay marriage.... Why shouldn't people be able to marry who they love? Christians, Muslims and Catholics all say that marriage should be between a man and woman. God didn't write the marriage act, we did. So we should be the ones to change it. Tony Abbotts own sister is gay, I would love to see how he treats her. People should accept gay marriage. It is doing nothing wrong except making people happy....

Should gay marriage be legalized?

Gay marriage should be allowed because humans made up marriage. As a result of us being the creator of marriage, we should be allowed to change it in any way we would like. Because we are allowed to change this in any way we desire, we should change it in favor of those who would like to be married in a gay way. For people who are against this, it is a bummer for them because we have a right to liberty and the freedom to express ourselves in this way....

Hello once again. After our previous debate, and your personal attacks, I noticed your disappointment. Even though the rules were fair and just, I still feel bad for leading you to swearing, cussing and attacking others. So, I have decided to make another debate about something you seem passionate about. So here are the more fair rules given if you are to accept this debate.1: first round is acceptance2: no plagiarism

Resolution: Christian Opposition of Gay Marriage is Silly. I will attempt to prove this resolution through the use of logic and Bible passages.
