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.

(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...

Gay Marriage

Homosexuals, like heterosexuals, neither chose their sexual orientation, nor should they be denied the same legal rights heterosexuals enjoy simply because they were born different from what is considered "the norm." Every respectable scientific organization in the world, including the American Psychological Association, says that sexual orientation is connected to biological factors and cannot be changed. Just as it is wrong to deny legal rights to blacks, women, and people born left-handed...

Why shouldn't gay marriage be legal

mariahsaywhaaa

Gay marriage should be legal, since when does anyone get off by being able to tell someone else how to live there life. If we claim we have equal rights then we should practice what we preach and allow same sex marriage. How would allowing two people weather they be the same sex or not get married affect the whole world? In reality it should only affect that couple, and everyone else should mind there own business....

Gay Marriage should be 100% legal

We hold these truths to be self evident, THAT ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL, that they are endowed by their creator with CERTAIN UNALIENABLE RIGHTS, that among these are life, LIBERTY, and THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS." Yes, you will complain that that is the declaration of independence, not the constitution. Here's some news for you. The country was founded on the declaration of independence, and the constitution didn't come for some years later. Actually we were more like the EU for the first few y...
