Legalizing Gay Marriage
Debate Rounds (3)
I will outline my opponent's points in three major contentions.
First on rights of people to be married so they can share insurance.
This point is non-unique to the pro side. If this were to be a deciding factor for deciding if people should be allowed to marry then we would allow children to marry also. However we do not because this is not a well formed presence foe deciding this issue.
Next an exact quote from the pro case."I also believe they should be able to get married because the government, or anyone in this country does not have the right to tell people what is right or wrong" If this were a true statement then the government would not have passed laws such as speeding limits, rights to own property, and rights to living a life. This statement is absolutely ridiculous. We cannot take away the right to tell people right from wrong simply because a minority of the country wishes to engage in such actions. The key wording of this is tell people(any people) what is right from wrong. This statement cannot be defended because we must institute laws to protect citizens of the United States. If we did not institute laws both debaters in this case may not have been alive or available to make this debate.
Third: The constitution states that two people (not male or female may get married) The constitution also does not say if children can be married. The constitution does not say if animals can get married. However, the Constitution was enacted as a major outline. We then allow the laws(which my opponent argues against) fall into place. This point does not gain my opponent any type of ground.
Contention One: "Gay"Marriage is not marriage at all. According to dictionary.com's definition of marriage. (a legally recognized relationship, established by a civil or religious ceremony, between two people who intend to live together as sexual and domestic partners) The key wording in there is sexual. As we all know the prime route of Sexual is intercourse. Intercourse (the insertion of the penis into the vagina followed by orgasm; coitus; copulation.) Since "Gay" people can only engage in Gay interactions then they cannot engage in one of the primary aspects of marriage. Since they cannot do this they cannot achieve marriage.
Contention Two: Gay Marriage Will Undermine the Institution of Marriage:
By allowing Gay marriage on the premises stated and the obvious underlying pursuit of happiness we are opening the door for many other(including gay marriage) outrageous marriage combinations. For example children. We cannot allow children to marry however they also face a natural given constraint.
