    A simple debate

    I have a question for those who have added their opinions on the debate surrounding Gay Marriage.

    The question: What arguments do you have to either support or condemn same-sex marriage? Remember that this is a constitutional issue, be it that constitution of the individual states or the nation as a whole, and with that in mind, I would like to hear your arguments on this issue.

    However, and here is the challenge, arguments must refrain from using theological debate and/or religious practices.

    Can this debate be discussed without resorting to biblical texts and intangible spiritual rhetoric or is that the only argument there is in preventing same-sex marriages?

    Does 'Separate but Equal' apply here, saying that as long as we don't call it 'marriage' same-sex couples can have ALL the benefits of marriage? Is an apple not an apple, even if we call it an orange?
