As a lesbian atheist, I strongly believe that gay marriage should be legalized, but I'm up for a friendly debate. Keep in mind, though, if you say "f*g" one time, I'm not going to listen to a single thing you say.

I accept.

I don't believe gay marriage should be legal. I respect every human's right, but there are inherent problems with legalizing gay marriage. It will force churches to do what they don't want. Every church has a right to believe in their dogmas.

I think we've come a long way in being civilized. Unfortunately, hate crimes do happen against gays, but we prosecute folks who do it now, at least, even though we can't always catch the criminals.

There's more, but that's it for me for this round.

Your turn, pro. :)

The consequences of allowing gay marriage would be disasterous. Inevitably it would force churches to go against their dogmas. It's not fair to them. Gay marriage shouldn't be allowed. Let there be civil unions, but not marriage. It would be too costly.

I don't understand why people are always hating on gays, there all just human beings and what's with the poeple who say marriage is between a man and a women so that it's ok with them to have sex? Marriage is when a couple decides they love eachother enough that they want to proudly display that with a ring,marriage certificate, etc.

I think that gay marriage should be legalised because gay people are simply humans who want the same liberties as anyone else. And also, churches don't have to marry people together, the Pastafarians can do it.

The state can't make churches marry gays. The marriage were talking about is a civil union recognized by the state.
