I believe same sex marriage should be accepted, as a person cannot change their true feelings, be it for the same/ different gender. Unfortunately, many people do not accept this, and instead shun the idea of same sex marriage, ignoring the couple's feelings for each other.

Thank you for asking me to debate.

Ok so you say that people can't change their true feelings. Same sex marriage isn't natural and its wrong. The people awho are homosexual aren't bad people. There just living a bad lifestyle. A person can change their true feelings. They just try to stop being gay. It's all in the individuals mind. They just think and can stop being homosexual and actually like the other gender.

Thank you for accepting!

You said: "Same sex marriage isn't natural and its wrong. "

I am guessing your answer for this will be God, but who declared that same sex marriage isn't natural and incorrect? By saying that same sex marriage is unnatural, it is like saying different sex marriage is unnatural. I mean, who decided that different sex marriage is correct, and that same sex marriage is not?

You also said: "There just living a bad lifestyle".

Homosexual people live just as bad a lifestyle as say, a heterosexual lifestyle. To be honest, somebody's lifestyle should not determine whether or not they can marry someone. They're heterosexual people in this world that lead horrid, cruel lifestyles. yet some homosexual live harmonious, caring ones.

You said: "They just think and can stop being homosexual and actually like the other gender."

People cannot just go and change their hormones! If somebody likes the same gender, they cannot alter that, as it is their mind's natural feelings! By saying the quote above, it is like saying that you can tell yourself not to be a heterosexual and to turn homosexual instead, because of what society thinks off you...

So he should say something. It's been several days now, and I was looking forward to seeing this pan out.

Is same sex marriage supposed to be that way? No.
But should we accept it? Yes.

All we can do is try to help, you cannot tell someone being gay is wrong or try and make them straight, just like someone cannot tell you being straight is wrong, or try to make you gay. Because whatever you say is really just your opinion on it. ; )

To add onto Jingram994, your arguement of "It's not natural" is also invalid as natural is defined by oxford dictionary as:

Existing in or caused by nature; not made or caused by humankind (http://www.oxforddictionaries.com...)

Following this logic, when animals engage in a homosexual experience, it is tehcnically "natural". As we are animals, and many other species of animals engage in it (1), it can be considered natural.

So what? Whilst the statement 'God exists' is still just speculation(at best) or tautology(at worst), attributing morality to him is an exercise in futility, and is begging the question. As well, whilst evolution is still proven and accepted by the scientific community, using a 'God created X for Y' argument is bad reasoning.

And also, if we are making the statement that non-reproductive intercourse is 'wrong' (it isn't; there's no such thing as a 'victimless crime', or an 'immoral action that doesn't hurt someone'), then all forms of contraceptives/birth control are also immoral. Anal and oral intercourse with straight couples is also immoral. Infertility is also immoral. Old people having sex is immoral.

God says it's wrong. Even the human anatomy which god created was made so a male and a female can reproduce. Not a mana and a man or a woman and a woman.

I think what SONOFGOD2013 fails to understand is that it is psychologically a part of who they are. They can not change it as easily as you make it sound, no more than you can make yourself homosexual. Why is it a bad lifestyle? Who determined what a bad lifestyle is, in respect to marital rights?
