Gay Marriage Should Be Legalized.

TheSkeptic
Zeratul

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...

Gay marriage should be legally allowed

Faraday

My position is that marriage between partners of the same gender has no significant negative effects on society and therefor should be legal. My opponent has the burden of proof to show that there are negative effects (or can reasonably argue that there will be) and should go ahead and make their opening arguments....

Hey all. First, I apologize if this is against some sort of rule, or if this isn't the sort of thing that should be posted here. I'm very, very new. Anyways, I'm giving a speech on why gay marriage should be legal in a conservative Christian speech and debate league, so it'll be a tough audience. Please rip the following speech apart as best you can. I definitely want to have some back and forth, too. "" I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declar...

Should Gay Marriage be legal?

16/March/15 Good morning fellow Us citizens, my name is Andres Ortiz and I will be debating why gay marriage should be legalized in the United States. To start off I want to define what marriage is to both heterosexual and homosexual legal unions. The legal union of a couple. The basic elements of a marriage as described by law are: (1) the parties' legal ability to marry each other, (2) mutual consent of the parties, and (3) a marriage contract as required by law. When you get married you g...
