Pro

If men and women can have equal rights so should gays and lesbians. They pay taxes just like everyone else. The constitution states all men are created equal and it is unconstitutional to not allow them to marry or anything like that.
m93samman

Con

I accept this debate and look forward to my opponents argument. My opponent began round 1 with no argumentation; rather, she began by presenting her position. Thus, my position is that Gays and Lesbians should not have the right to marry, given that my opponent only has the problem of marriage in her position as opposed to "equal rights" in general. I guess arguments can begin in round 2?

Pro

lrharris forfeited this round.

Con

I'll give my opponent another round to post her arguments, but she does have the burden of proof so she can't win if she doesn't make an argument. Meanwhile, conduct is all that was effected.

"If men and women can have equal rights so should gays and lesbians."

Gays and lesbians are men and women. Thus, you are stating that gays and lesbians already have equal rights.

"They pay taxes just like everyone else."

Not everyone pays taxes, so I am not exactly sure what your point is.

"The constitution states all men are created equal ..."

Congratulations. You cite the opinions of several Founding Fathers and do not provide any constructive argumentation to support your statement. By the way, I believe that you are referring to the Declaration of Independence.

"... and it is unconstitutional to not allow them to marry or anything like that."

Prove it.
