Gay marriage

Juudy
Superfaith

ACTUALLY there's proof it could & will. The comptroller of NYC found that it would bring hundreds of million dollars to the state & local economy. & also it could lower divorce rates. Massachusetts was the first state to legalize gay marriage. 4 years later they had the lowest divorce rates in the country. Alaska the first state to prohibit gay marriage, saw a 17.2% INCREASE in the divorce rates....

Gay Marriage: Yay or Nay?

Nonsensicality
somenerd224

Gay marriage is good. Some people would say that in the Bible, it rules against gay marriage, saying that 'any man who lies with another man is sinful', but it also says in the Bible as well that Jesus (you know, the guy who the Bible was practically based on) said to love unconditionally. And if you also view this topic from the religious perspective, if God created mankind, and created everything about them, and knows the past present and future, then He created homosexual people. And why wou...

gay marriage is perfectly fine

hello i am a normal 14 year old kid... so if you respond please don't use big vocabulary. ok so i believe gay marriage is perfectly fine. although i am not gay i would defend my fellow friends, family, and people of the world on their right of happiness. i believe that gay marriage is fine because, think of it as a man who is different. that man believes in his own things and minds his own business. he does not interfere with the outside world because he will be made fun of for speaking his mind...

Gay Marriage should be legal.

Gay marriage should be legal in all 50 sates. There is nothing wrong with two people loving each other that are the same gender. These people deserve their chance at love and the government should not hold them back....

Gay Marriage

My position is incredibly clear, Gay Marriage is in no way an atrocity and Homosexual marriage should, everywhere in the world, be afforded the same exact rights given to Heterosexuality. I would like to give the following moral reasons (as this is a very moral issue and not a very factual/academic issue): gays are in every way just as fit, if not more fit to raise children, religious arguments are outdated and should not be (in the US and other western countries such as the UK) even discussed,...

Gay marriage should be allowed

HAwoman
debate-a-doom

Why shouldn't two people of the same sex be allowed together? I find it ironic how countries are trying to fight against homophobia, even though laws against the right for gays to marry IS being homophobic. I also find it sexist how men love to see lesbians, (because they think we're into special 'kinky' things that other couples wouldn't do, even though that's not true. We have the same sex life as straight couples) and hate seeing gay men....

polygamous marriage should be allowed, if gay marriage or civil unions are allowed

dairygirl4u2c
ConservativePolitico

folks want gay marriage or civil unions, to be fair or equitable to those who aren't straight. perhaps they even want to say nature made them that way, so its' natural. sure maybe whatever. but it's at least as natural, or at more natural, for there to be unions with more than one other person. humans as with most animals, are somewhat polygamous in their natural state. they say shouldar width in apes, monkeys etc is proportional to how promiscuous they are, wider shouldards, more polygameo...

My argument against gay marriage is compelling and sound

kenballer
bbowhan

FIRST ROUND ACCEPTANCE AND RULES ONLY Update: Alright, I will give some insights as to what the argument entails. Its an argument about the actual true purpose of civil marriage which involves procreation and how redefining marriage (or gay marriage) will produce immeasurable consequences onto society. However, its NOT the mainstream procreation argument heard time and time again. Some people may have already seen it in other debates I have been in. In this debate, My opponent will ha...

Gay Marriage

MrBrooks

Resolved: The reasons to make same-sex marriage legal in the United States outweigh the reasons not to do so.My previous opponent for this resolution forfeited, and her account is not longer active, so I would like to try again.The BOP is shared between Pro and Con.Rules:1. First round for acceptance, unless Con wishes to begin his or her arguments. If Con begins arguing in R1, he or she shall not post any arguments in R5.
