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...

Gay Marriage

I would like to challenge you to a debate sir. I will defend the rights for gays to marry! No need to use marriage as a weapon against diversity! Regardless of any of our opinions I do not believe there is a person alive that should have the authority to stop you from marriage of you are consenting legal adults!...

Gay marriage should be allowed

Why shouldn't two people of the same sex be allowed together? I find it ironic how countries are trying to fight against homophobia, even though laws against the right for gays to marry IS being homophobic. I also find it sexist how men love to see lesbians, (because they think we're into special 'kinky' things that other couples wouldn't do, even though that's not true. We have the same sex life as straight couples) and hate seeing gay men....

Homosexuality and Gay Marriage are Morally Wrong

charles15

The proposition on offer is that Homosexuality and Gay Marriage are not Morally Wrong. My opponent (should he choose to accept) has posted some interesting "information" on this issue. Let's examine some of his points: >> "Statistics show that homosexuals remain faithful to one another only 25% of the time, on the other hand, heterosexual couples remain faithful to one another 80% of the time." What statistics? He provides no source for this very suspicious number.... Furthermore, the...

Gay Marriage should not be legal

debatefan01
TheSkeptic

The discussion over whether the state ought to recognize gay marriage has thus far focused on the issue as one of civil rights. This argument is erroneous because the state recognition of marriage is not a universal right. States regulate marriage in many ways besides denying couples of the same sex from marrying. Many states prohibit first cousins from marrying, and all prohibit marriage of closer blood relatives, even if the individuals being married are sterile. In all states, it is illegal t...

New arguments in R4 and you lose conduct. No "shouting" or bad language Only accept this debate if you are actually against it. I lo...

First round will be for acceptance. I thank you. You thank me. Everybody's a happy family. Round 2 will be for opening arguments. I say a whole lot of stuff to support one side. You say a whole lot of stuff to support the side I'm not supporting. Debate commences. Round 3 will be for refutation and case reconstruction. I tell you what is wrong with your case. You tell me what is wrong with my case. We debate. Clash happens (ideally). Round 4 will be for closing arguments. Some ground...
