I wish to debate the issue of Gay Marriage. I am pro because I have yet to come across a good reason as to why homosexuals shouldn't be allowed to marry. I look forward to debating the topic, best of luck con....

Should gay marriage be legalized/legally recognized?

originalthought

In my opinion, same sex marriage should be legalized and legally accepted on a national basis. I plan to prove this not by going on the offensive, so to speak, but by going on the defensive. I will present evidence on four main points that display exactly why there is no reason to bar people of a sexual orientation different from our own to marry one another. These four main points are: The unchanging, fundamental principles of marriage from an emotional standpoint, marriage as a Legally Binding...

Gay Marriage should be allowed under our current Constitutional and judicial standards.

The Unites States of America is founded upon the principles of Libery, Freedom, personal choice, and most of all we are suppose to be a land of equal opportunity. The First ammendment is designed to protect us from any type of theocratical law. The 14th ammendment is there to make sure everyone is guarranteed dual process and that everyone is treated the same under the law. So why then does the US government only recognize a marriage between heterosexual couples and not homosexuals as well. Also...

Gay Marriage

It seems that many people use the bible as a reason as to why Gay Marriage should be illegal. With the separation of church and state, all the bible's texts (or any other religious writing's for that matter) are rendered useless. One can also argue by saying that because gay people cannot reproduce, they should not be together since the point of life is to reproduce. One can counter by saying that life isn't about reproducing, and even if it was, many straight people fail to reproduce as well, b...

Gay Marriage Is Wrong

Hello, I am new to this website and usually debate on such sites as CNN.com. (I would enjoy a debate in which there are limited to no resources, just perosnal experience; just for curiosity.) I decided my first debate was going to be over the highly controversial "Gay Marriage". I, for one, strongly disagree with Gay marriage and not for religious purposes. As a person who does not attend church, or believe in a higher supernatural power, I simply do not believe it is right and I know it will hu...

Gay Marriage Should be Allowed

I belive gay marriage should be alllowed for simple reasons. I myself am a heterosexual man, but I believe that every person has the right to live their lives as they see fit. Not allowing gay marriage is effectively infringing upon other people's lives, and not allowing them to be with the sex that brings them fullfillment. I understand that the Bible condemns homosexuality. Understand though, that the Bible was written when the Romans and Greeks, famous for their horrible sexual practices...

Gay Marriage (Please read before accepting)

I have debated this topic several times and I think that I've come to a happy medium on this argument. Most proponents against gay marriage say that they don't want the term "marriage" to be defiled as it states a union between a man and a woman. Those in favor of gay marriage just want the same rights as a heterosexual couple and to be treated the same. My argument is that in the eyes of the US government, any couple (hetero or homosexual) will be called a union with the same rights as a...
