Pro

first of all i thought this country had freedom of religion therefor it should be legal for gays to marry
stefan600

Con

A homosexual is an object of mass tradition destruction. Marriage is between a man and a woman. They should have homosexual anal sex instead
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

Gay people can't choose if they are gay or straight. They are just like you and me except they like the same sex. Hey, by the way where did you here a marriage is between a man and a woman. Marriage is between to people who love each other, whether that be a boy and a boy, a girl and a girl, or a boy or a girl. We are all the same.

Con

marriage is a female and a male. It is a ceremony of their bodies. place a gay child brought up and he spread the homosexual anal sex. It just cannot happen

Ok I am against gay marriage as it is not the way god wanted us gays are disrespecting god. For just being gay.

When God put the first Man and Woman on Earth they were not gay but straight. Adam and Eve had faithfully obeyed God's first commission to: "be fruitful and multiply "" [Genesis 1:28].

So gay people as well as there supporters are against gods will, because we are allowing them to be gay. Allowing them to go on and adopt

Since those kids will grow up with Gay parents they will with a high chance become gay.

Which is not right and I said it already but being Gay is not in the Bible, anywhere it was never intended by God for Gay people to be walking among us but for all of the Human race to be Straight.

I rest my case.

Why should you care if LGBT marriage is legal? I am for it all the way, because I believe in equality. That and it has way more good things going for it that bad. The only arguments have ever heard against gay marriage is that " Marriage is for a man and woman", " LGBT people will go to hell", and " LGBT marriage is against our religion". Of course I have simplified all of these down to simple sentences, but these are all of the themes presented.
Now to my argument. First off, we are talking about if the government should give LGBT people the RIGHTS to get married, not if being LGBT is against religion or whatever. America is supposed to be a FREE COUNTRY, but we are not. Do you know why? American LGBT cant get legally married, and not all people have the same rights because some stupid bigots cant accept the fact the government is not ruled by religion.
Secondly, yes I understand that LGBT couples cant reproduce. But what about all of the children that need to be adopted? Don't they deserve a loving home? LGBT couples can provide this.
And lastly, the government should not be ruled by religion, it says so in the damn constitution that the church and government are two separate things, and are in no way connected. So why is the religious arguments being used in an argument about legalities!?

Ill kill this for Pro in a heartbeat.

I do not have a real stance on this but I'll take CON for the sake of argument.

The debate is not over the right of being together with someone you find dear but rather being recognized and allotted the same perks of being married. These perks are there because in a "standard" marriage you procreate and add to society. Same sex marriages can not do this. As a logical person, I would even go as far as saying give them the right to marry but no tax credits. That is of course, for the sake of the argument.

I personally despise society. Fickle and feeble, like a sick animal that will latch onto you and take you down with it. So, with that said, who cares!

Reasons for voting decision: Terrible debate by two people (or is it the same person?) Who clearly don't know how to conduct themselves in a debate. Vote goes to pro due to con's "argument" in the final round where he/she used just one word, "penis."
