Is it wrong to be Gay?
Debate Rounds (4)
I would like to thank IceDragon for agreeing to this debate.
Pro's argument is as such: that heterosexual reproduction is obviously what "God" intended for humanity and that because of this, it is immoral. There are two problems with this statement.
1: The God you speak of has not been shown to exist. In other words, there is no evidence that God is real, and even less that he created the world. The whole premise to your argument (which you have stated as a given) is based off of the existence of a supreme deity when there is no evidence that said deity exists. There is even less evidence that he created the world, and lots contradicting it. One may logically say that the events that created the universe as described by science were put into motion by a God, but the creation story as described in Genesis is completely unsubstantiated.
2: Your other premise is that God is the source of all morality, which you fail to back up with logical evidence. Pro has failed to fulfill his burden of proof, and I urge y'all to vote Con.
Over to Pro for his next arguments/rebuttals.
How was the first human being made? Evolution. How else?
You say that a family needs a woman and a man in order to teach them certain values. Your mother/father dichotomy needs some working on, though. Your gender roles in parenting are heavily reliant upon social constructs and stereotypes. That, however, doesn't matter, because we're not debating same-sex adoption. We're debating if being gay--having romantic feelings about one of your own gender--is wrong. Same-sex adoption or parenting has nothing to do with it.
Just out of curiosity, how does it teach children the wrong things and what does it teach them? I know plenty of gay couples with children who are very well-prepared for life.
No, I'm not a girl and I'm not gay.
Extend all points as Pro seems to have forfeited--my gender and sexuality are beside the point.

Reasons for voting decision: Con used proper sentences and correct punctuation whereas Pro did not and frequently spoke informally with things such as "u" and the wrong use of "your". Points to Con. Pro made assertions about homosexuality being wrong but failed to bring up any proof. His arguments only consisted of claims, no evidence. Con didn't have the burden of proof here and pointed out that Pro needed to prove that God exists in order for his arguments to work and showed how he had not done so. Pro drifted from the debate topic, talking about gay adoption and not being gay. But even this argument is made up entirely of claims. Con points out how he is drifting and in response Pro drifts even more. Points to Con.
