-Most people support gay marriage; gays should have the same rights as straights when it comes to marriage
-Opponent has BoP (burden of proof)
-Majority of countries don't have gay marriage legalized
-Gay marriage goes against old definition
-Gay marriage can lead to other "weird marriages"
-We shouldn't have people who don't support gay marriage pay taxes
-Gays' children have worse behavior (e.g., homosexual acts)
-Normal marriage is being "Destroyed"
-Goal for marriage is shifted
-people support civil unions more
-The definitions of marriage have shifted in modern day so marriage as a whole should not be allowed
-Traditional marriage is superior to gay marriage (and because such they cannot be compared as equals) because it BUILDS society while the latter only indirectly contributes
-Most countries, through signing the UDHR, believe gay marriage is a right
-Church has changed views on marriage
-Opponent's definition source shows in some cases marriage isn't just man and woman
-Polygamy marriage isn't so bad
-The taxes to the government benefit society
-Opponent must prove homoerotic sexual acts immoral. Plus, gay parents are more committed to their kids as statistic finds.
-More homosexual marriage is good
-Reproduction leads to overpopulation, and artificial reproduction is becoming more and more popular
-Gays prefer marriage to civil unions
-Gays adopt children
-Gays can help society as well
-The Roman Church doesn't accept homosexuality
-Pew research center is one source and biased
-Homosexuality is a sin in the bible
-Most churches ban same-sex marriage
-gay children are not natural
-Polygamy children don't do well, neither do the spouses
-we don't want to give gays a bad environment; their children suffer more emotional and social problems
-The world is not getting over-populated; there is plenty of space available
-Civil unions are recognized in more countries than marriage
-Gays can help, but they can't BUILD (make up) society
-The church is unfair as it does not give gays the same rights as straights
-Old testament is untrustworthy to new testament
-Bible is biased
-Men gain skills from polygamy, and the Koran supports it too
-Just because gay couples' children have more problems than straights does not mean they shouldn't be able to marry; poor people can marry regardless of the amount of problems they have
-Civil unions have many benefits over marriage, a big one being adoption
-Gays, through adopting children, can have them go to society and MAKE UP PART OF THE SOCIETY.
-Gays can still love each other without marriage
-Opponent contradicts himself because if the Bible was created when homosexuality wasn't recognized, then the "love" passages only apply to heterosexuality
-The bible has many passages condemning homosexuality (again...)
-Traditional methods are superior to new methods (as polygamy shows), therefore gay marriage, a new thing, should not be applied.
-Civil unions can give adoption rights via a signed bill
-Marriage gives far more benefits than no marriage
-Just because something is old does not mean it is good
-Love is infinite, while poorness is just a status. Infinite benefits wins over finite benefits.
-We should focus on our current children rather than looking for hope in born new children
-Homosexuals have a tougher environment as already proven. The extra tax would not be a good thing.
-Civil unions offer the same benefits as gay marriage, just that they cause less hate
-Gays don't need marriage to adopt children!!
