Religious Freedom should be upheld alongside Gay Marriage

Gondun

This is a debate about whether or not the United States should uphold certain religious freedoms regarding homosexuality. Specifically, I believe that people/businesses should be allowed to deny service to homosexual couples on the basis of religious beliefs, but only when that service relates directly to their homosexual marriage and/or family (ie wedding planning, marriage services, couples counseling, adoption services). Things like refusing service at a fast food restaurant because of the cu...

Gay Marriage

Gay Marriage is now legal, Yay! I am for gay marriage, if two people from the same-sex are in love and want to spend the rest of their lives together like any other couple, it should not be a problem. Well its the law now. Having said that, I don't think I will be ok if my children grow up and want to marry the same sex. It probably makes me sound like I have double standards but what would you guys do? Lets debate!...

Court's ruling on gay marriage was illegal

The constitution indicates that any powers not specifically granted to the Federal Government are inherited by the states. Since marriage is not specifically mentioned in the constitution, this was not up to the Supreme Court to decide and should have been left up to the states....

Gay marriage

Gay marriage is wrong and should never have been legalized. This "progress" that people like you claim that America has made is only proving to be a step back. Real progress would be a way to achieve this without restricting the liberties of those within the Christian community. What is progress when there is a group of people who are being forced to commit actions that go against what they believe in? I do not believe in this at all, but if it must be done then why can't gay couples go some...

Legalization of Gay Marriage

eganbrooks100
Zarroette

Gay Marriage should definitely be legalized for many positive reasons. Firstly, our era has evolved so much with accepting black people and removing the slavery laws. But how have so many places around the world not legalized gay marriage? All humans should be able to love and feel attached to people regardless of sex. Marriage is defined as a commitment between a man and a woman but should we really let these definitions take control over basic human rights? No! Why do people keep referring t...
