I thank pro for his acceptance of this yelling match. If you look at the bible, you would see that in every incident where "Marriage" is discussed, it is between one man and one woman. NOWHERE in his holy book does the lord EVER argue for gay marriage. In fact, the bible says to kill homosexuals! (Lev. 20:13) What then, is pro proposing? Do you think that we should wed the gays and THEN kill them? Yet, throughout all of this, people like pro call me a bigot and condemn me for my views.
So, my opponent is arguing that we should govern based on the laws in a 2000 year old book. I will actually be making an intelligent case for the pro side, because I'm not stupid. First of all, I would like to point out that gay marriage doesn't actually affect heterosexuals. Maybe religious bigots, but that's another story. Instead of listening to a book that saw the world end with horsemen, why don't we listen to the people filling this modern, more tolerant earth, and allow some people the basic right of marriage? I mean, bigots like him will continue to persecute gays to the point of war. Where does that get America? Does Saudi Arabia come to mind? What about Afghanistan? Besides, if two people really love each other, and promise to remain committed, does their gender really matter? Finally, some may argue that gays shouldn't get married because they can't have children. Well, then why can infertile couples get married? I rest my case.
