Should Gay Marriage be Banned?

I believe that gay marriage must be banned. Gay marriage is not necessarily considered a marriage, the reason why it isn't considered a marriage is because it's meant to be for a man and a woman in order for them to raise children together. Same sex marriage will give a bad effect on the child causing him to glean abnormal influences from his guardians. The second reason why gay marriage is meant to be banned, is because it's the violation of natural laws. This implies that gay marriage as w...

should gay marriage be legal?

It will decrease the divorce rate. More than 50% of married couples in America get divorced. Studies show that the US has one of the highest divorce rates compared to other countries. Allowing gays the opportunity to get married will increase marriage rates because less couples will get divorced due to incompatibility or infertility. Legalizing gay marriage will decrease divorce rate because it cannot get any worse than it is right now. 9. No effect on the heterosexual community. Gay Ma...

Government employees may not use their religion to refuse the issue of gay marriage licenses

A county clerk is an elected official who is required to perform all the legal acts of his or her office. If the clerk refuses, for personally held religious beliefs, to issue a wedding license to a gay couple, when such a wedding is legal in the state, that clerk must either resign or be fired. BOP is shared. First round acceptance and statement of position. Second round rebuttals, third round arguments, fourth round rebuttals. Fifth round summary....

Gay marriage should be legalized in all states

I believe that same sex marriages are the same at heterosexual marriages. To me marriage is between 2 people who love each other, and they would favor in sharing their love for the rest of their lives. As we live in a modern day society, people are now re-defining the meaning of marriage and is starting to suppose gay rights, and that's great! But there is still a percentage of people who believe it's wrong. Gay marriage can be a positive thing prior to our financial system. If gay marri...

Gay marriage should be illegal

The Bible does NOT say that gay marriage should be illegal and I would argue that it does not even call homosexuality a sin. What evidence do you have to support your position that it does?...
