Legalizing Gay Marriage?
Last week we had a class debate about legalizing gay marriage. The team that was assigned to argue against it provided very few reasons, none of which were credible. For example, this girl got on her soapbox about how it was biologically unnatural. That's just not true. There are a ton of examples in the animal kingdom where homosexual behavior has been documented. It got me thinking, why in the world would we ban gay marriage, other than personal beliefs? What harm does it do us if our gay neighbors are now married gay neighbors? This is not intended as a flamewar, but I seriously want to know: is there is any legitimate reason why gay marriages or civil unions ought to be banned?
