Con

Gays should be allowed to marry partners of their choice just as heterosexual couples do. It is ignorant in today's world to deny such a basic right to an individual because of something that is innate. Yes, sexuality is not a choice, it is innate.

Civil union is not a reasonable compromise for a legal marriage. Most civil unions don't have the same rights as a legal marriage has. Even if we made all civil unions exactly equal to legal marriage but called it something else, it wouldn't be enough. The concept of "separate but equal" has already failed. Segregation is not a solution when it comes to rights. History has proven this.

Secondly, where is the benefit of oppressing gays from marrying? Religion isn't an answer. Religion is the excuse. In the case of Christianity, the bible states to do unto others what you would like done onto you. How would a heterosexual couple like it if it were them in the position of such oppression?

Reasons for voting decision: lolwhy seemed to have made the greatest arguement in the world "ewwwwwwwwww" but con in a valiant debate was able to turn the tide of the debate slowly and in a valiant effort, convinced me otherwise. Despite the fact that "ewwwwwwww" is by far the most effective argument against gay marriage, mbryan90 valiantly stuck out and fought his heart and soul out against "ewwwwwwww." I admire the persistance of lolwhy for debating so many rounds and he deserves recognition, but mbryan90 won in the long run. JK lolwhy's argument was a joke and this argument is a joke, yall should report it for wasting our times.

Reasons for voting decision: Despite the extremely scholarly and compelling argument of "ewwwwwwwwww" pro made, I must hand my votes to con, who made slightly better arguments. Just slightly.
