Should same sex marriage be legal?
Debate Rounds (3)
God made man and woman, not so a man could marry a man, or a woman could marry a woman. If you are a Christian, and believe in the Bible you should be against, because it is condemned in 1 Tim. 1:12. Plus it takes away a childs right to a mother or a father.
And that message is love each other with your whole heart. Jesus wouldn't discriminate. He didn't condemn murders, criminals, and evil people, instead he said turn the other cheek and love everyone steadfastly.
If we took the bible literally, 100% of the time we'd be living in one crazy world (http://www.salon.com...).
All we know for sure is that we should strive to live in peace and harmony with others. Love each other like brothers. And remain faithful.
Even if you don't buy any of this religious stuff, we have to accept that no government should make its laws based off of religious scripture. Governments must remain non-secular and a non-secular government would most assuredly want to protect homosexuals human rights.
(Murder, drunkedness, gambling, etc).
Because the bible tells one to conduct themselves in a loving, non-discriminatory manner towards one's fellow man, same sex marriage finds religious justification and is not forbidden by scripture. In addition to this, same sex marriage should be legal because governments ought to have a separation between the church and the state, a key argument that my opponent leaves unrefuted.
Thus, because I win the religious debate, and the separation of church and state in law making goes unrefuted, you should vote in the affirmation of same-sex marriage.
