How many religions does this go against? 1? 2? 1,000? And many people practice under the assumption their religion does not allow it, when in fact, there is no proof in many religious books that state they are against it.

Laws are made whether or not you are disgusted with them or not, so your disgust is an invalid point.

Christians, Buddhism,Catholicism, Mormonism, all say its bad, and there is more, shall I go on?

As I said, it doesn't specifically state people should be discriminated against. Being frowned upon and being discriminated against are different.
50 years from now people will look back and think this debate is outrageous. Just like when we look back when it was illegal for African Americans to sit in the front of a bus. Or child labor, or not Today, that debate sounds crazy. But back then, it seemed like a totally justified way to discriminate.

Kinda looks liked you copy and pasted there but this will go on longer then the blacks and the discrimination against them because this is against a lot of religions.

Reasons for voting decision: Con repeated the same argument over and over, which made him lose the convincing arguments point. He made grammatical errors in every round, which lost him the spelling and grammar point. He also lost the conduct point after calling same-sex marriage "disgusting". Finally, Pro was the only one to cite his sources.
