There is no rational basis for banning gay marriage.

This is a short debate about gay marriage in the United States. I believe bans on gay marriage cannot be defended, even under rational basis review. When courts apply rational basis review, the question asked is whether the law at issue is rationally related to a legitimate government interest. This is the lowest level of judicial scrutiny. Thus, the issue up for debate is whether bans on gay marriage are rationally related to a legitimate government interest. This should give those against gay...

Should western nations (including the United States) legalize gay marriage?

Hi everyone, this is my first debate on debate.org. Have patience! With that stated, here I go! Whether you think it's a choice or not, whether you approve of homosexuality or not, homosexuality exists. Gay people exist. Gay couples and relationships exist. You can choose to ignore them, but they will continue to have sex and partnerships. If you believe it is a choice, then as long as humans retain free will, there will always be people who choose to be gay, even in the most intolerant of...

As a lesbian atheist, I strongly believe that gay marriage should be legalized, but I'm up for a friendly debate. Keep in mind, though, if you say "f*g" one time, I'm not going to listen to a single thing you say....

Same-sex couples should be allowed to publicly celebrate their commitment in the same way as heterosexual couples. [40] The Human Rights Campaign Foundation states that many same-sex couples "want the right to legally marry [and] honor their relationship in the greatest way our society has to offer..." Same-sex couples should have access to the same benefits enjoyed by heterosexual married couples. Many benefits are only available to married couples, such as hospital visitation during an il...

I believe gay marriage should be legal everywhere. Most arguments against gay marriage are ridiculous. Yes, the Bible is against it, but what if your atheist and the bible has no part of your life? The dumbest one I've heard is that if gay marriage is legal more people will become gay and society will collapse. 10% of the world is gay and it's stayed that way for a LONG time. Gay marriage is actually a good example for your kids. It takes a lot of courage for two girls or boys to be proud they a...

Gay Marriage

I think that no one can make a valid argument that 'gays' cannot get married. The only reasons I can think of are A. Religiosity B. Personal Distaste in the LGBT lifestyle C. Saying marriage is for procreation solely (it is not) I can easily counter any of the 3 (or all of them)...

Gay Marriage is a topic that has been raging on for years. Legal or not legal? It is not recommended to use the bible here, as there is a separation of Church and State. Therefore, banning gay marriage cannot be based of of the Bible, or any other religious book or writing....
