Gay marriage should be made legal. To deny homosexuals their right to equality creates hatred.

ctlaster
patriots16-0

"Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it." Coretta Scott King uttered these powerful words preaching peace, love, and equality. To deny homosexuals the right to marry or legally adopt children to raise a family is a repeat of history. This will become the next Civil Rights movement if this country continues to promote hatred. To preach "family values" and promote hatred and discrimination is an oxymoron....

Gay Marriage should be legalized

Danielle and I are both from America so for the sake of simplicity this is in reference to American policy. Nobody below 2500 ELO can vote on this debate. The reason is to eliminate some bias which is always present in issues like this while being as inclusive as possible with the voting. Danielle feel free to start arguments in first round and pass in last or to just accept...

Gay Marriage: Yay or Nay?

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...

If you're going to comment on the fact that this topic is a dead horse, please don't. I know you're tired of seeing them, I like getting other people's viewpoints. Challenge: I'm issuing a challenge to Pro to not base his or her arguments on a religious basis....

Gay Marriage Should Be Legalized!

I am looking for someone to give me a reasonable explanation(s) why a same-sex couple should not be allowed to participate in the beauty, sacredness, and holiness that marriage is. For the 1st round I am asking for acceptance, 2nd-4th round going deeper into the argument, and the 5th round should be the final conclusion. This is my first debate so I'm not quite sure what to expect. Also, absolutely NO copying and pasting. If you are going to speak on your opinion, let it be YOUR own. I have a lo...

Gay Marriage

Love is love, and homophobia is uncalled for. It's discrimination based on something that absolutely cannot be changed, and it's no different than discriminating against someone based on the color of their skin. Who are you to tell me who I can and cannot marry? Will it honestly affect your marriage or even your life in any possible way? No. It will only affect me and the person I marry. Saying that it should be wrong because "God" doesn't approve, and gays can't reproduce? If there is a God,...

No marriage should not be legalized because that is not moral. I got nothing wrong with gays being a couples but marriage is beyond does morals. later they will want to have babies and the babies will grow up within that environment and then want to continue the cycle and that is grown....

Gay Marriage

Some states do not allow gay marriage. I believe that just because it's a man and a man, or a woman and a woman doesn't mean that they cannot marry. I believe in equal rights for all citizens, of all races all around the globe. link-https://secure3.convio.net/hrc/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=245 (If it doesn't click,copy and paste.)...

Gay Marriage.

drafterman

(Using my same standpoints as all are valid and relevant.) Separation of Church and State works both ways, therefore on legal grounds? This issue should be locked away indefinitely. Gays bring up the "fact" that it is a "Civil Rights" issue. First off, marriage was created by straights. As a patent owner, do you not have rights to said patent? As the creators of marriage, do we not have the right to reserve it? Do you have any idea how many issues this causes? So if I had a birthday party...
