Legalizing Gay Marriage is Overall Bad Public Policy

kenballer
YYW

FIRST ROUND WILL JUST BE FOR ACCEPTANCE AND RULES ONLY I will be showing how redefining marriage to just two people regardless of Gender is bad public policy overall by showing all the potential harms and refuting the supposed benefits to society. CON must show how the benefits of legalizing gay marriage ,if there is even any benefits in the first place, would outweigh or at least equal the costs for legalizing gay marriage. These benefits can either involve how it would benefit gay coup...

Is marriage a gay rights issue.

xenofreedomx
ickda

Should marriage as an institution be a gay rights issue? The argument that often occurs, is should homosexuals have the same access to marriage as heterosexuals. I pose a different question. Should the institution of a religious union be apart of government? This is to exclude the idea of a legal union for gaining access to custody of children, homes, insurance, ect.. and to have a merit in court should a disagreement in ownership or access occur. I argue no. Reason: Anytime a law can...

Should Gay Marriage Be Federally Legalized?

racedogg2
LibertyCampbell

I personally believe that gay marriage should be legalized. Since marriage offers couples benefits given by the federal government, it makes no sense to deny the right to marry to same-sex couples. Religion should not be brought into the argument at all, because I am not claiming that homosexuals should necessarily be allowed to get married in a church. But they should certainly be allowed to walk into their local court and buy a marriage license, just like every other loving couple in America,...

Gay marriage should be legal.

Stephen_Hawkins
Pboy21

This debate is as simple as the title makes out. Gay Marriage, or SSM, is defined as "a legally recognized union of a same-sex couple". Civil union is defined as "a legally recognized union of a same-sex couple, but with less benefits than a Gay Marriage".First round is acceptance and definitions. Copy and paste of contentions is not allowed without citation, unless one is copying and pasting from one's own material (which needs to be cit...

Gay marriage should be legalized.

unknownamous
FourTrouble

People need to recognize the difference in between what they think is "moral" and what is legal. One of the main things that distinguishes America from many other countries is our set limitations on such things; for instance, the right to practice different religions and traditions. It does not matter if someone finds another citizens beliefs against their own. I think, even though I'm certainly NOT gay, that it is illogical to take the rights from our fellow people to marry, no mater what the r...
