Hello to my opponent & those observing.

I'm happy to be apart of this debate and I hope we can enlighten each other.

I'm confident that by the end of this debate people will vote that FREEDOM is the only way humans should live.

Please proceed with your opening argument.
Debate Round No. 1


"The opposition's arguement against same sex marriage is primarily based in religion, and the interpretation of what is moral and immoral. Cultural norms also play a role in the following points.

•Biblically, marriage has been cited as a union between a man and woman and in such a union procreation must not be ruled out. In other words, religion says a man and a woman get married and have children. Same sex couples can't fulfill that expectation and therefore should not be permitted.

•The natural difference between man and woman, including sexual differences, is what draws them together and forms the basis of their relationship. Without those differences, a committed relationship can not occur.

•Scientifically, marriage between a male and a female is the natural order of life.

•Many religious figures view homsexuality as a sin and therefore any union based on such a relationship is also deemed sinful.

•Some religious leaders believe that allowing same sex marriages or unions will somehow undermine the traditional family unit, the foundation for many religious communities.

•Others feel that the gay community can't be allowed to redefine marriage and the family unit to suit their own needs.
Ironically, the gay community is somewhat split on the issue of same sex marriage. Many feel that a legal, same sex union instead of a religiously based marriage is needed to protect couples and afford them the rights of traditional couples. And for some, the issue simply boils down to their own definition of marriage and the legality of civil unions.

So you have the know where each side stands. Now make your own informed decision.
"One main concern is that allowing two people of the same sex to marry will devalue the concept of marriage. Those against gay marriage argue that marriage is between one man and one woman and allowing gay marriage would destroy the traditional family, which defenders of this idea value.

Others argue that marriages are for procreation. This argument is related to the idea that same-sex couples are not appropriate parents and shouldn't be allowed to assume a family structure. Those against gay marriage often bring up the above points, although their arguments are based on an idea that homosexuality is morally wrong. "
lets hear your side.

@Deathbeforedishonour - Since forever. Think about it: other than for moral reasons, what reason is it to outlaw murder or rape?

Moral values? Since when has the law ever reflected moral values?
