Gay Marriage

The government should not be allowed to control who you love, and marry. It does not matter who you love, you should be allowed to love them without fear or anyone telling you can can not love them. The government already controls most of what we do, but who you love should not be something they have control of....

What is commonly referred to as 'Gay Marriage' should be illegal

The idea that people of the same gender can marry each other is ludicrous and flies in the face of logic. Marriage is a union between a man and woman, regardless of recent attempts by popular dictionaries to update their definitions....

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 Should Be Allowed

I belive gay marriage should be alllowed for simple reasons. I myself am a heterosexual man, but I believe that every person has the right to live their lives as they see fit. Not allowing gay marriage is effectively infringing upon other people's lives, and not allowing them to be with the sex that brings them fullfillment. I understand that the Bible condemns homosexuality. Understand though, that the Bible was written when the Romans and Greeks, famous for their horrible sexual practices w...

First round is acceptance Since this is one of my first debates and I'm pretty young, just know that I will do my best but am not an expert :) First of all, I do NOT want this to be a religious argument. I want to know the ways same-sex marriage would affect society, laws, schools, etc. NOT things like, "It's a sin" or "It's in the bible and it is against god,". If you accept this debate please keep that in mind....

This is a debate that Gay Marriage should not be legal where limits are to be set for Californian law and customs. Gay Marriage is defined as being: Lawful Marriage between 2 people of same gender. There are 3 points supporting gay marriage: 1. First and foremost, America in general is founded on the civil liberties and freedom for all including for gay people to be allowed to marry. 2. Current California law makes gay marriage illegal. This however, violates the 1st Amendment as well...
