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 people should be allowed to marry because there is no real, well-founded argument against; every human deserves equal rights and one of those is the right to marry; and gay marriage prevents the birth of unwanted children...

Is gay marriage okay? Why?

Skywalker900
MikeTheGOd

I know that many people will come in and say it's against the bible, but it actually isn't. Many things that supposedly are against homosexuality in the bible are actually just grossly mistranslated due to hundreds of years of changing each word to be easier to read. In the original manuscript in Leviticus, it said that it was offensive, or Tovah. If it were a sin it would have said Tovah Yahweh, or offensive to God. It said it was offensive because during the time it was considered a disgrace t...

Gay Marriage

I really just needed to shove my opinion out there. What is the problem with gay marriage? Don't tell me the bible says no. The bible has nothing to do with what any man or woman should be allowed to do in their homes. The bible doesn't mean anything to non Christians., and not every American is Christian in the united states. We are not supposed to be based on one religion, so why does the bible have so much control? It shouldn't. So when someone says, the bible says marriage is between a man a...

Gay marriage should be legal in the United States.

Freeman

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

I will be challenging 16kadams to a debate on Gay Marriage. I will be arguing for gay marriage, on the Pro side. I will be arguing that Marriage rights should be given to Homosexuals, but that parenthood should be defined as being between one Man and one Woman, one Father and one Mother, in line with nature. I will be arguing that Marriage is a concept thought up by humans, that marriage is both a religious act and a legal contract, but that it is not a natural act, as parenthood is. So...

Do you support gay marriage?

I strongly disagree with gay marriage. God didn't create Adam and Steve, but Adam and Eve. Besides, gay marriages don't give any birth possibilities, therefore, it is a sin....

Gay Marriage (U.S.A)

WDJax
Vladimirova

While a good amount of states already legalized Gay/Lesbian marriage, most of the United States has not done so. Why? What legal grounds are against gay marriage? Many argue that it's immoral because the Bible/Koran/(Insert Religious book here) says so, but America has established a separation of Church & State. "Moral" reasons have no say in a topic that touches legality. Also, me, myself I don't see homosexual couples or homosexual people as bad. Also, with the stigma of homosexuals being m...
