Gay Marriage should be legal

I know I debated this recently (like, yesterday), but it was really light and barely touched on the complexity and depth of the issue, so I decided that I wanted to do it again. I am extremely disappointed with this week's results in Maine. Voters have said yes to hate, intolerance, fear and discrimination. A vote is a vote, and I'll respect that, but they voted the wrong way. I will alow my opponent to begin....

Gay marriage should be legal

First let me say that I do not believe that you choose to be gay. I believe that you are born that way. Some of my closest friends are gay, most of which I've known for years, and they all say that they knew they were different since they were children. I do not believe that you can "cure homosexuality" as I've heard some say, nor do I believe that gays should not have the exact same rights as everyone else. Which leads me to the topic of gay marriage. The most common reasoning behind the co...

Gay marriage is natural, necessary and inevitable.

If there is one social issue that defines our times, it is certainly the issue of gay marriage. Stunning as it might seem, in the few decades after Stonewall the gay rights movement has finally gained enough momentum to not only raise the issue of marriage equality, but also win the debate in various countries, states, and cities around the globe. Centuries of progress after the Age of Enlightenment in Europe have brought us the most sophisticated, fair and free social structure of all times - d...

Gay Marriage Should Be Legalized.

I've been trying to challenge some few individuals on this topic, but none of them seem to accept for whatever reasons. So I guess I'll just make another open debate. I intend to argue that any LGBT marriage should be legalized, and thus when I say "gay", I am referring to LGBT. My sole argument is that gay people have the same rights to marry as do heterosexual people. The word "marriage" does not need to be a definite prerequisite - the only thing that should happen is for gays to have...

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....

First, let me say that I am only interested in debating those who are willing to devote sufficient time to complete this debate. If you think you might not be able to post your arguments within the allotted time, please don't bother. I will argue that gay marriage, the legal union between a same sex couple, should be allowed. Let me state that I also believe that "civil unions" exclusive to homosexual couples are not sufficient. The term "civil union" should either replace "marriage" entirely...

There is no logical reason why gay marriage should be banned

Since the topic of my last debate of this subject and turned into an argument of states' rights (which was not what I intended), I wanted to start another debate making my stance more clear. My position is simple: There is no logical reason why gay marriage should be banned. I will allow my opponent to speak first and give his/her reasons why he/she thinks gay marriage should be banned....
