Pro

I think gay marriage is right because a person should be able to pursue happiness as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else. Wasn't that the basis for the United States itself?

Con

u r telling the truth about the united states but I don't agree with gay marriage because its just wrong and weird I mean its promoting diseases in our society and teaching children in our community to think wrong

Pro

It's only wrong because you say it is. Also,promoting diseases? You can contract the same sexually transmitted diseases in heterosexual sex that you can in homosexual. Who are the American people to say to men or women can't be happy with themselves,that's like making people give up a religion,or a way of life. How would you feel if someone tried to outlaw Christianity?

Con

well your correct in a lot of ways but if people are going to be gay they should not show it I public and say a guy is gay and he starts telling our community's children about gay is ok I think I would be very angry wouldn't you

Pro

I would not be angry, because gay is not wrong. Also, saying that gay can't be displayed in public is no different then saying a man and woman can't be married publicly. Everyone has the right to be happy and live their lives.

Con

well your wrong because Jesus said it was supposed to be women and men not men and men

Reasons for voting decision: Poor spelling, poor use of sources, nothing of substance was provided for the reader to use in in the decision making process. That being said, I encourage both members to continue engaging in debates. You will get better. Next time, cite sources, spell check and expand your vocabulary. If it's interesting to read, you may capture a vote. While I firmly stand opposed to Gay marriage, Pro had better grammar and spelling. It's the only point I can really award.
