Any queries will be settled on comments.
a)What is same-sex marriage?
Same-sex marriage (also known as gay marriage) is marriage between two people of the same sex. Legal recognition of same-sex marriage or the possibility to perform a same-sex marriage is sometimes referred to as marriage equality or equal marriage, particularly by supporters and some opponents. The legalization of same-sex marriage is characterized as "redefining marriage" by many opponents to gays.
b)Why do most countries not allow same-sex marriage?
Most countries, namely Middle-Eastern countries, classify same-sex marriage as not allowed for religious purposes. In countries such as Egypt and Saudi Arabia, the death penalty is the punishment for same-sex marriages. The countries think that gays and lesbians are possessed by the devils and therefore the gays and lesbians must be killed.
c)Does the international community accept same-sex marriage?
In a recent survey done by the BBC, 21% of people in the world know (know as in colleague, friend etc) with a gay person and a further 15% have at least one relative that is gay. This proves sufficient evidence that most of the international community are in acceptance of gay people, although they are living in countries, like Sudan and Nigeria, where being gay is punishable by the death penalty.
Before beginning, I wish a apology to my opponent for not being able to post quickly. I have certain things in my life that need to be accomplished first before anything else. Also, I apologize if I offend anyone because of playing the role of "Con" in the debate. With that in mind I will happily begin!
Same Sex Marriage:
Definition (Oxford's Dictionary): A marriage, or "bond", between two individuals of the same sex. Known as both "Gay Marriage" or "Lesbian Marriage".
a. Same Sex Marriage is a type of marriage that has been full of arguments for many years. Arguments typically started by individuals who follow a certain religion. The top being: Christianity and working its way to Judaism. And in certain countries, results with the "Death Penalty" for practicing this action. Which my opponent brought up.
b. The most common ground where Same Sex Marriage is done is in the United States, where there are still riots to legalize it throughout the country. This has been denied multiple times, but Same Sex Marriage has been legalized in certain states. Similar to allowing marijuana to be legalized.
c. Besides Same Sex Marriage being argued for religious purposes, there has been other reasons of why many people deny it. With facts of not having a child "naturally", and instead bringing the child from other countries. Where it causes the child psychological harm because of not having a mother to give the nurturing, or father to be a little gruff. Stated from psychological professor: "Trayce Hensen". As well as not following "tradition" besides a debate about religious arguments.
