I think it should be allowed because it is not harming anybody is it no its not. It's just showing the love of 2 people loving each other. I think it would be a good thing because it just shows there love and who cares if its against other peoples religion. Who cares what others think

You said that it doesn't harm anybody but then later you state that it's against people's religion and who cares what they think.

harm-actual or potential ill effect or danger:

ill-badly, wrongly, or imperfectly
oxford online dictionaries

It does cause harm because Gay marriage is against my religion therefore it is BAD, therfore ILL, therefore causes HARM!!!

note: When your voting, don't vote for gay marriage just cuz you support it. I love gay marriage and i support it, but this debate topic is illegitimate, vote con for debate since this topic and description is illogical.

There is nothing stopping from homosexuals from getting into a serious relationship with one person and being monogamous. I do not see the point as to how marriage will eliminate promiscuity among homosexuals when they have the option for relationships.

Also, it is proven that homosexuals have a higher HIV rate, being homosexual does not mean it will be contracted but the chances increased significantly. Sure, heterosexual sex can lead to disease but pro-sodomy relationships increases that likelyhood.

Like many other arguments, these are not arguments against gay marriage, but arguments against gays. Furthermore, they're surely arguments FOR gay marriage! Surely if promiscuity and diseases were concerns, providing the structure of marriage would tend to discourage that behaviour. Also, it is not homosexuality that causes the spread of disease, but promiscuity of any sexual orientation. The fact of a person being homosexual does not in itself cause anyone to contract any disease or disorder.
Promiscuous heterosexuals are just as prone to contracting sexually-transmitted diseases; in addition, they're far more likely to cause unwanted pregnancies (and by implication, more abortions!).

Part of your statement is true, behavior affects a person's health. But homosexual behavior/sex carries greater health risks or it puts the individual at greater risk.

Sexuality does not affect a person's health, behavior affect a person's health.

Love can not be the only measure to qualify for marriage. Also, consider health risks of the activities involved with homosexuality.
