gay marriage should not be legal - civil unions okay

linate
Originalname

we should recognize that the natural world creates natural distinctions between male and female, and their cohabitation etc is what produces offspring. they are a natural unit for the purposes of kids, and a natural unit for the purposes of simply recognizing nature. we can have civil unions or something to respect others, perhaps, but that doesn't mean we have to give the same value to something that is fundamentally different, by calling it marriage. also, as far as procreation goes... we'...

Gay marriage should be legal

Why and how is same-sex marriage a good, positive way to host a society? This world's kids don't need more broken families (i.e. divorced parents, stress because of differences/controversy). The world in general doesn't need more exposure to AIDS. Don't we want to "coexist?" Gay marriage sets religious people and secular people even more apart. BOP (burden of proof) is mostly on Pro because he/she needs to provide reasons gay marriage is good for society. I, Con, will only debunk and rebut,...

If you take religion out of the question, I don't see how gay marriage is a bad thing? They only want the same rights as everyone else. Although I can point out the differences if you want, you can't argue with Polygamy, Incest, Beastiality and Pedophilia. Those are completely different cases which I would have different arguments for. For instance, it's different from pedophilia because there are no minors involved. That's what makes pedophilia wrong. Gay couples can raise children and they...

If you take religion out of the question, I don't see how gay marriage is a bad thing? Gay couples can raise children. They pay their taxes like everyone else. And I don't see how their marriages would affect other people. I've never heard anyone complaining that somebody else's marriage was hurting their own. That just doesn't make sense....

Gay marriage

I'm straight, and for gay marriage and see no reason why people are against. If it doesn't affect your life why do you care if LGBT's get married. You should be happy that two people love each other. Stop worrying about other peoples life's. In some countries you can sign papers that show you are partners with another person of the same sex but your not allowed the actual marriage ceremony, and then the government/homophobic say your together so why are you still wanting the marriage? well m...

Gay Marriage, should it be legal in the United States? Why or Why Not?

kat_in_the_hat

"Gay Marriage," or as I like to call it marriage, should be legal in every state of the U.S. Religious views such as "it is unnatural, it is a sin, and marriage is between one man and one woman" aren't even actual reasons to why it should or shouldn't be legal because we are a secular state and no religious views should be taken into account when deciding on this matter. What negative effects would there be on our country if two consenting adults who love each other were allowed to get married?...

Gay Marriage should be legalized in the US

According to a poll surveyed by Gallup (1), 55% of American citizens believe gay marriage should be legalized. It's because I agree with the majority of Americans, that I stand in affirmation of the resolution, Resolved: Gay marriage should be legalized in the US (1) http://www.gallup.com/poll/117328/marriage.aspx...
