The government doesn't have the right to interfere with your love life.

But the government does deal with natural law & homosexuality love is very unnatural. Heterosexual love has always been natural. What kind of other love is unnatural? There's pedophilia, bestiality, & taboo, etc. Lets debate about this Babe :)

Pro

As from July 17,2013 13 US states have legalized gay marriage. The government has NO right to tell you who you should love or shouldn't. They have the same opportunity to be as happy as other couples. Let them be they are human beings, let them be happyand quit being so judgmental.

Some Gay-Rights Activists Regret Focus on Marriage

Even as it celebrates victories in the push for same-sex marriage, America's gay-rights movement is experiencing self-criticism and internal divisions over its approach to other thorny issues.

Some activists say the nationwide marriage campaign, while worthwhile, has diverted energy and resources from causes that may be harder to market " such as rights for transgender people and advocacy to combat HIV and AIDS.

"I wish we were spending a little more time working on these other issues and not just making marriage the centerpiece," said Terry Stone of CenterLink, a nationwide coalition of more than 200 community centers that serve lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender people

Reasons for voting decision: Con argued better. I found this point quite strong: "What kind of other love is unnatural? There's pedophilia, bestiality, & taboo, etc " Pro did not counter that at all.
