Gay Marriage Should Be Legalized

I believe that gay marriage has become a highly controversial issue which people have blown out of proportion. Exclude the fact that these people are homosexual. They are people just like the rest of us and if it makes them happy to be together, then who are we to deny someone of their happiness? Gay marriage should be allowed throughout the United States....

Gay Marriage

I believe that there is no good reason for gay marriage to be illegal. The only reason it IS illegal in some states is religious reasons, and separation of church and state and freedom of religion are in the Constitution. Another common argument is health risks- well, turns out there aren't many. Anyone who has anal sex, homo or hetero, have the same risks to AIDS and other STDS. What, do you want to ban anal sex for everyone? Do you want to ban sneezing in public or not washing your hands...

Gay Marriage should be legal in the United States

I totally believe that gays should have the same rights as straight people because they are also human beings. In America we are supposed to be a free country. What free country is only free sometimes? They should be allowed to marry and love each other in the same way the straights are. I want to point out the flaws in the common statement it is againt the bible or god. The second commandment states "Love thy neighbor as thyself" it is also stated in Christian religion that GOD loves all of his...

FIRST ROUND WILL JUST BE FOR ACCEPTANCE AND RULES ONLY In this debate, I will explain how gay marriage is not a civil right as part of my argument.

Gay marriage should remain illegal everywhere

As Con/against, your aim is to provide reasons as to why gay marriage should be legal (hence, the burden of proof is on you). As Pro/for, my job will be to rebuke your claims, but I will also provide arguments that you must successfully rebut. We're not arguing about a relationship between two people of the same gender, we're talking about a legal contract that recognizes the two as together. Issues involving 'the right to raise children' are expected to be brought up despite not being necess...

Gay marriage is not a human rights issue

JohnT
WriterSelbe

This debate will be about whether the ability to marry someone of the same sex is a basic human right. I will be taking the position that it is not.A human right is defined as "an inalienable fundamental right, to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being." The first round will simply be for acceptance and any definitions. ...
