Con

I am against homosexual marriage being illegal. One point for this is that it isn't going to have an impact on anyone else's life. Who cares if your homosexual neighbor has a husband? Not me. If someone were gay, would it kill you? Would it stop you from getting a job or living a healthy life?

Please don't hold back any arguments, i'm new and inexperienced, but please bring out the big guns for this debate.

Gay marriage is betwen two consenting adults and only concerns them it shouldn't be illegal.
We are discusing gay marrisge not gay adoption just to clear this up.

@ZenoCitium True, however it can clearly be seen by looking at weather I'm pro or con, or if he actually read what I wrote.

Part of this confusion is because the topic is a double negative. It probably would be more clear if it was "gay marriage should be legal" with the host being pro.

Dude... Did you even look at this debate for more than one second before you accepted?

Maybe those were bad examples since they are quite severe. I wouldn't want someone to mistakenly think I meant legalizing gay marriage is the same as legalizing homicide or drug dealing. I was only using these examples because they were obvious instances. My point is that the "it doesn't kill you" argument is lacking to say the least. In fact, it could probably be used on PRO's side as well since having civil unions instead of marriage wouldn't kill anyone either.

Our laws should enforce the freedoms guaranteed to us by our constitution. They should reflect how we want to shape society. The arguments should reflect this. Show me where in the constitution we have the freedom to marry whatever we want. Show me why "separate but equal" is or will not be truly equal. Show me how these laws will affect our children and our children's children. If I hear that gay marriage should be legal because of animals I will ignore this debate. Sway me.
