Gay marriage should be legal in the United States.

Freeman
mongeese

I will be using a dual overlaying teleological/constitutional argument to contend that gay marriage should be legalized in the United States. In this project I will borrow the harm principle, as articulated by John Stewart Mill, to argue that the only reasonable circumstance in which a government can limit a citizen's liberty is to prevent that person from causing harm to others. This view when taken to its logical conclusion would entail the legalization of gay marriage. Contention 1:...

Gay marriage should be legal is all 50 states. I believe this because there are many people such as my uncle, my great uncle, my aunt, and many other family friends who are gay that have had a big impact on my life that had to go to a different state to get married which I think is just wrong....

A Good Debate on Gay Marriage

InVinoVeritas

Thanks to everyone who expressed interest! Preface:I have seen many, many debates on Gay Marriage here on DDO--most of them are poorly constructed and not well thought-out. As someone who is gay, I also feel a need to set the record straight (pun intended) on many of the homophobic comments present in many of those debates. Therefore, to get this frustration out of my system,I would like to have a formal, polite, and high-quality debate on the permis...

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

You stated: "The family is the most basic unit of our society. Gay marriage completely destroys this system. " Okay, how is it that having two human beings that have the same gender destroy the system of 'family'? Unless you are following some sort of religion or government control, there are no rules written ANYWHERE that state that two women or men cannot become one as a family. You stated: "There are men and women on this earth for a reason. These two were made to be together and to h...
