Gay-marriage should not be legal in the US

Clash

As Pro, I will affirm the resolution and argue that gay-marriage should not be legal in the US. As Con, you will negate the resolution and argue that Gay-marriage should be legal in the US. ClarificationsThe debate topic is that gay-marriage should not be legal, so to say that there are many places in the US which already makes it legal (something which I'm fully aware of), is invalid. If the debate topic was however that gay-marriage is not legal in...

Resolved: Bill Richardson was a better NM governor than Gary Johnson.

SayWhat

This is a debate inspired by a spar 16k and I had a few weeks ago on a politics thread. We got into an argument about who was the better overall New Mexico governor - Gary Johnson, or Bill Richardson. While it was very interesting to hear 16k's arguments at the time, I thought it would be great for him to expand upon those arguments by means of a formal debate, where we use proper sources and proper claims to defend each former governor. Now that he has rejected the challenge, I will make thi...

Our greatest taboo should be permitted for investigation and debate

MassDebater69

This debate will be about whether or not there is significant justification for free speech and inquiry pertaining to a particular historical event. Of the various taboos present in Western and European society, discussion of the Holocaust is often regarded as the most significant. It being part of the curriculum for nearly every school in America and abroad, it is no wonder why this event has such a major impact on us, particularly when we hear details of the oppression that occurred during...

The bible is immoral.

mega-antitheist

I take the position that the bible is not a source of morality because people pick and choose what passages are moral and immoral. I want a debate with as little emotions as possible as I know that these types of discussion can get heated, I am hoping that whoever chooses to oppose me opens their mind before they start the debate. I also expect that my opposition has knowledge of the bible beyond church sermons. Thank you and good luck. :)...

Piano competition of awesomeness

larztheloser

Following Wallstreetathiest's model (although with some important differences), I have decided to instigate a piano competition. This one is particularly awesome because I'm so terrible at it that I'm going to make my opponent look awesome. So have fun thrashing me.FormatRound 1 is for acceptance. In each other round, you must post a youtube video that depicts you performing your composition. I'm not going to set any strict limits on it, but try to keep it...
