Lordknukle

Pro

I thank my opponent for that very well written and gramatically correct sentence.

I was expecting a real debate, but in vain.

I will only post one case as anything else would be a waste of time:

C1:Economics benefits of gay marriage

"The Comptroller’s Office estimates that the economic impact of marriage equality would add $142 million, on a net basis, to New York City’s economy during the three years following legislative approval. It would add about $184 million, on a net basis, in spending to the State’s economy. The $142 million benefit to New York City’s economy includes spending on weddings by New York State residents who live outside the City but choose to marry here. "

Conclusion

I hoped for a real debate, but unfortunately I didn't get one. I urge the voters to vote Pro as I am the only one who presented a real case.

I am a firm believer of anti-gay marriage.

However, I wanted to try being on the other side, but in vain.

I'm not interested in the topic anymore tho

Reasons for voting decision: Con states that gay marriage is wrong but fails to state why, instead appealing to a book of mythology that is unlikely to be true and is only relevant to a few million people at best. I took his challenge and thought about female on female action and found that to be a great idea.
