PirateLord

The topic at hand is that we should not legalize gay marriage. (1) traditional Marriage in its sense, is defined as a bonding between one man and one woman. Not marrying in the same-sex. (2) Same-Sex marriage is morally wrong. (1) http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com round 1 counts as accepting the argument and making your opening statements...

JimmyRusltler

I see a lot of debates of gay marriage yet none of them secular. Every one of them has religious terms and for once, a secular debate about it must be made Just to clear things up i am for it and con will be against it. No references to religious terms will be made. Good luck challenger....

Gay marriage should be legal

JasperFrancisShickadance

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,...

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

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 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'...
