Pro

I argue your opposition to civil unions. I am calling for a debate on civil unions for same-sex couples and their rights to civil partnership.

Con

I will argue that government should get entirely out of marriage. With government out of marriage, civil unions will be unnecessary because marriage is not an issue.

I accept.

Pro

Civil Unions should be put as marriage and LGBT people should have the right to civil partnership and should have the same rights as heterosexuals

Con

I agree that LGBT epole should have the right to partnership and the same rights as heterosexuals. You still have not stated: Why should the government control marriage?

Marriage is a bond between two people. For many it is a religious institution, and for others it is not. Marriage should not be a legal contract the way it is now.

If LGBT people want to live together, they can. Government should not be able to recognize any marriage, they should stay out of it.

Without government in marriage, Civil Unions is useless.

Good day.

Yes, marriage should be rightfully returned to the Church were it belongs.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro never forwarded an argument, he merely re-stated his position on the issue. Con's position, while not argued for in much detail, affords him the win as per the BoP being unfilled by Pro.

Reasons for voting decision: Hard to tell what Pro was saying, so I give S&G to Con. In future, make the resolution an affirmative statement, so we can tell who's on which side of what.
