I believe they should be able to be married. One because the constitution and bible both state that all men are created equally. Second how does it really affect you if two men marry each other. Think about.

Since you used the first round for your opinions, I will also use the first round! You believe that homosexual couples should just be able to get married, but, I disagree. Anyone who loves another person should be able to do more than just possibly marry, they should be able to get married publicly and legally. They shouldn't have to bribe a priest and make an underground operation to. While u sir, you believe in giving the littlest of all mercies to the homosexuals: possibility, I blve n frdom!

First off those were not my opinions they were facts. Me as a Christian I completely believe in God and he clearly states Galatians 4:18 all men/people should be equal so if two men want to marry they should be able to do want they want. It also states that all men are equal in the Constitution and Gettysburg Address. So if they are equal they should have the freedom of who they want to marry.wiki.answers.com/Q/Where_in_the_Bible_is_the_phrase_all_men_are_created_equal_located

Can't vote for someone that blatantly misquotes the Constitution.

Not sure that you are quoting the right verse there. And read very carefully....the Constitution does NOT state that all men are created equal. The Gettysburg Address got it from the Declaration of Independence.

I ran out of room because of a short stupid 500 character limit, so I had to use words like frdom instead of Freedom

Sigh. Neither say that. That is the Declaration of Independence.

Reasons for voting decision: I agreed with Pro from the start, but he is only better when it comes to conduct. Con forfeited twice. Neither of the two candidates used sources and neither argument is more convincing. Again, I agree with Pro 100%, but Pro didn't put much effort into this, much less Con. Also, both candidates had horrible spelling and grammar. Pro's was a little better, but you still could not ignore it. These are my reasons for voting how I voted.
