Gay people are human just like you and me and they deserve the right to marry another person they love. Would you like to be stopped from marrying someone you truely love? They should be given the chance to express how they feel about one another.

obviously this debate wasn't as important as any other. I'm guesssing I've won this round. Since I have nothing to go on because of the lack in my opponantes responce or interest I cannot say anything further on this matter.

Marriage should be a religious matter. No matter what you say, you cannot take the religious aspects out of marriage, at least in the view of most Christians. I don't feel that homosexuals should get "married", to sum it up in a simple form.

I apologize to the voters and my opponent for my lack of a response.

Skizzils. Your last reply is totally biased. It's only states your opinion. You failed to give me proof of why they should or shouldn't get married.

Obviously I must vote Pro on this as Con offers an argument in his final speech. Pro had no chance to refute thus I vote on default.

There are many things wrong with the religious argument. First of all, no one can be legally married or officiate at a wedding without a license from the state. Not to mention that you can get married at the court house, officiated by a judge or justice.

Second of all, not all Christian denominations oppose gay marriage and certainly not all religions oppose gay marriage. And if they do, they will not be forced to perform the ceremony, just as a catholic priest is not forced to officiate a baptist wedding.

And the final point that can easily disprove the entire, marriage is religion bull is this: Atheists can get married.
