Scheduled for 12 p.m. noon (Eastern time) on July 7, DigitalJournal.com’s second online Liveblog debate will look at an issue increasingly making news around the world: gay marriage.
DigitalJournal.com's live blogs happen on the first Tuesday of every month
Should gay men and women be allowed to marry? Should this be a municipal or federal decision? What are the pros and cons of allowing gay people to marry?
In almost every country, same-sex marriage is a controversial topic. Supporters claim gay people should be awarded the same rights as those given to straight individuals. Critics say marriage is an institution between a man and a woman, and giving queer communities the right to wed hurts that union. So who is right? What do you think?
DigitalJournal.com’s Liveblog debate will begin at 12 p.m. noon (Eastern time) on Tuesday, July 7. Moderators will pose questions to the audience to begin conversation. We want you to participate and add your thoughts to the debate.
During the hour-long Liveblog Debate, moderated by Digital Journal staff members, respectful and non-abusive comments will be published for, and against this issue.
