Why gay/lesbian people should not be allowed to be married, I think gay/lesbian should not be allowed to be married because the god made Adam and Eve not, Adam and Steve. If God wanted two boys to be married then he would have said they can be married. But God said that he wanted man and woman to be married.
I have to argue that gays and lesbians can get married if they would desire to. My reason being is that regardless who you are, the Government of the United States isn't based on the Bible; therefore, you can't use that to defend why gays shouldn't be allowed to get married.
That being said, if Gays want to do what they want without bothering others does that matter? The thing is your getting too much in people's personal lives. Not everyone that's gay believes in a religion. Also Adam and Eve were never officially married.
In the Bible it says that god destroyed a whole city just because there where guys that wanted to have sex with the men in the house hold. So this diffidently plays a part in the gay and lesbian thing. With the thing on how the bible is not part of our gov then why dose it still say "In God We Trust" on the dollar bill if they want to make it clear that we have no association with God then why do they not get rid of that on the dollar bill then if this is true then we still indeed have an association with God and the Bible. That is one reason that i do not think Gay/Lesbian marriage should not be allowed
We are not a Christian nation! The reason it says in God we trust is because it is tradition. The establishment clause states: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion" First amendment states that they won't prohibit your right to worship God. Just because you follow an evil God that hates gays doesn't mean that the whole country does. Also no where in the Constituition does it prohibit gay marriage nor does it explicitly say that a man and a woman can get married. Please, if you debate anything political leave religion out of it. Gay marriage is implied that it's protected with civil unions.
Why are you calling god evil. He is not evil we are evil by Disobeying his word by being gay so he is not evil for hating sin, he is is just saying that if u are gay then I will hate that sin against you and saying that he hates gays. Just like he would hate everyone else when they lied or did any thing else but god loves everyone even for there sin including gay, lying and every thing else so we do not hate gays it is we hate what they believe in. This is Also a reason why gay/lesbian marriage should not be allowed.
Leviticus 20:13: "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads." This by itself proves the Bible to kill gays. That out of the way, the Supreme Court in Zablocki v. Redhail has decided individuals regardless of gender may or may not get married as long as both parties have accepted it. The right to be happy.
Reasons for voting decision: The Bible does not dictate the law. Religion is accepted within our law, but it does not govern it. Just because you have personal believes based from the Bible, does not mean everyone else has the same opinion. Con did not offer any sort of convincing arguments, other than their own beliefs.
