Should gay marriage be legalized?
Debate Rounds (3)
By definition a marriage us a union between a man and a woman making your entire argument invalid. Though it is true sane sex couples are offered civil unions but that is not enough to satisfy them. Marriage is also done by the church and under the sight if god so if a church does not agree with a lifestyle then they have no right to serve them because of their right to deny service to anyone. Note that marriage is not a right but a privilege so same sex couples are not entitled to their right to marry. They want to marry but it us no ones obligation to give then their right to marriage.
http://en.wikipedia.org...) If you're referring to the homophobic god of the Old Testament, then yes, I can see your point. However, the church is not the sole dictator of who marries whom. Today, if you choose, you may be married by a judge. This judge would be acting on behalf of the United States Government. Included as a fundamental rule of this nation, is "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion". As a result, we do not place the arbitrary beliefs of any religion into our laws, and could marry a same-sex couple far from the judgmental sight of god. By legal, not religious, definition, a marriage can be a union between a couple of the same sex. Now, the next part of your argument. Just as no one is obliged to allow straight couples to marry, no one is obliged to allow gay couples to marry. However, about 100,000 U.S. children await adoption yearly (http://www.acf.hhs.gov...). Most children would rather be placed into a loving family than continue to make their way through the adoption system. Even if you think gay marriage is wrong, I find it hard to believe that you think it would be better for children to have no parents as opposed to two parents of the same gender.
What would you think if I were to ask to marry my dog. You would think I am crazy right. How is gay marriage any different my dog loves me and I love it. It is not a man and a woman as was intended and can make a functioning society and it is just promoting perversion. A child needs a man and a woman to grow up correctly. If being gay is not a choice that that means there is a gay gene which could be passed down onto children and their children's children. The population would decline until poof, extiction. If homosexuals are not born this way and it is a choice then well we are not going to give rights to people who can change who they are. If being gay is not a choice and they are not born that way then that means it is caused by some sort of trauma or abruptions (totally made that word up) in their childhood. Then that means that being gay is in fact a mental illness and just like mentally retarded people, they can not be trusted to take care of children. Picture this. If a diabetic is denied rights to chocolate and proclaims discrmination should we give them the chocolate. (lol what did I just say there)
Boom I just went full Republican.
