Tithing is the drug of choice for many churches

BackSeatPreacher

Coaches should not be allowed to yell at their players

Kylar

Hey everybody :)! This is a challenge to anyone who wishes to have a pleasant debate with me. I believe with all my heart a coach should be forbidden to yell at their players. I find it in poor taste, and embarrassing. I will develop this in later rounds. First round=Acceptance. Good luck!...

Gun Control In America

Vietnamese_Ronin

I am a gun owner in America that is looking for a intellectual debate on whether or not gun control is needed to become more strict or loose. My stance subject at the moment is to repeal the National Firearms Act of 1934, to make gun laws the same on a nation/federal level instead of state laws. The NFA is a direct infringement on the Second Amendment but is one of the most obvious and highlighted ones to take down. While shootings are almost a common occurrence, I believe gun control is no...

Is compulsory sterilization acceptable in situations where offspring will suffer substantially?

Edwardclark
ISSASCHOLAR

Most people would agree that reducing the amount of suffering in the world would be the right thing to do, provided we were in a position to do so. Therefore it is acceptable to sterilize people, even if it goes against their will, if it is extremely likely that their children will suffer exponentially in impoverished, war-torn, and just generally oppressive environments which prevent intellectual growth and an adequate quality of life. The potential offspring's suffering, will almost undoub...

Replace the second amendment with universal healthcare

madscientist24
TheMarketLibertarian

Gun ownership is not a right. Citizens should be allowed to have guns for hunting, sports and if they feel they really need it, personal protection. But criminals and the mentally challenged should not have guns. We need a better and universal background check system. Owners should be licensed and guns should be registered. Gun owners should be responsible for crimes committed with their weapons. Individual citizens do not need assault weapons and they should be banned for public sale. I would e...

Bush Had Nothing to Do With 911

CivilProtester
Geffrey-C

Here's how the format will go: First round is introduction. Second Round is Argument. Third round rebuttal. Fourth round Conclusion....
