Restricting social network services in the Middle East is a desirable policy

amychoi2009
NaTurl

Many countries in the Middle East are stopping social network services such as Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. These countries are prohibiting communication sites such as the Internet for political or religious reasons. I think it is not a good policy to stop social network services. This is a violation of freedom of expression, one of the universal rights that people will pursue. Also, the reason for prohibiting social network services is to prevent spreading the thoughts of corrupt government...

sjghs
Krueger515

GMO(Genetically Motified Organism) food is a new concentrated aquatic product which is made by inserting it into another organism after taking only a strong gene such as cold, insect pests, herbicide and the like useful gene of a certain organism. As globalization is rapidly advancing, gmo foods are attracting attention because they can solve the global food shortage. However, it has the disadvantage of harmful to health. I think gmo food should be utilized and developed in the world market by...

Gay Marriage

Marriage equality is a fundamental right that very human deserves. Imagine going through life without having the right to marry because it makes some unhappy. They will say the bible says so, but that is false....

Churches, mosques, synagogues, etc. ought not be exempt from federal taxation.

smurfy101
Unitomic

Argument 1: Tax exemption constitutes an endorsement of religion. Tax exemptions give these institutions more money. This is a simple fact. Regan v. Taxation with Representation (US Supreme Court) decided that a tax exemption has the same effect as a cash grant. This is unconstitutional. Argument 2: Tax exemption favors larger churches, which are often predatory. This credit varies from church to church. Your average church may pull in a good amount, but definitely not as much as Kenneth C...

Should I be allowed to develop a game in school that contains guns

ThemerikeRed
veryboredandtired

I believe that schools should allow their students to design and develop games with violence that does not lead into the extremes such as intense blood and adult themes. But students should have the permissions to depict guns in their games, writings, and art. I know that in schools today, they are in heightened security mode when someone mentions the word 'gun'. But that is not the case in history classes where I see videos of WWII soldiers mowing each other down with machine guns. You would se...

Should under 18 Youth be able to vote after "voter's ed"?

JD31720
SJM

There should be an optional class for youth under 18 to take to get informed about politics, so that they can exercise their right to vote at a younger age. It would kind of be like driver's ed in a way. You have to pass the class before you can vote, unless you're 18 or over. It would give the youth who are informed (or want to be informed), the chance to get their right to vote early....

It is always up to theists to prove that god exists. No exceptions. None.

backwardseden
Maher

Until god waves his rosey red flag, he's a forgery a fake and a fraud. Indeed it is always up to theists to prove their god. No exceptions. None. How can you prove something that is unproved? How can you prove something that is unknown? How can you prove something that has never been seen by anyone - ever? What do you look for to prove this unknown commodi...
