Con

Pro should present his or her case in Round 1 and cannot argue in the last round (so we each have an even # of rounds for arguments).

Pro

How do you or the government have the right to tell Gays that they don't have the right to marry?

Con

I'm arguing gay marriage should *not* be illegal. You're supposed to argue that it *should* be illegal because you're Pro.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro failed to interpret the Resolution accurately. Clearly misunderstanding his own position and posing a question with the implied message being that he is against gay marriage being illegal as well. I believe once Con clarified the position he took on the debate the Pro forfeited the remaining rounds as a sign of concession. Con rightfully wins this debate.
