Everyone has an opinion on gay marriage, and those people's opinions have led to this unbelievable news! Click to see what I'm talking about.

The Jim Spiegel argument goes as follows:

1. Heterosexual union is the indispensable means by which humans come into existence and therefore has special social value (indeed, the greatest possible social value because it is the first precondition for society).

2. The indispensable means by which something of special social value can occur itself has special value.

3. What has special value to human society deserves special social recognition and sanction.

4. Civil ordinances which recognize gay marriage as comparable to heterosexual marriage constitute a rejection of the special value of heterosexual unions.

5. To deny the special social value of what has special social value is unjust.

6. Therefore, gay marriage is unjust.

You don't need to be rude. My point is that everyone should know enough about an issue to make an informed decision, regardless of whether it's the same as me.

:I side against gay marriage, though if someone wishes to disagree with me, that's his/her right.

In other words, you're a moron who freely admits that his own opinion is worthless.

Stop being a p*ussy and don't put a disclaimer after your opinion.

I agree with Tes95. I hope you know what your in for. I think of 16kadams, as a debate sniper. He shoots down his opponents arguments one argument at a time, he has an excellent aim, and he shows no mercy. Watch out, and may God have mercy on you, lol
