Sofiyasolod

Over time, we have seen the constant overlap of Australia"s three levels of government, with multiple governments assuming responsibility for the same thing such as a national curriculum, and investment by the federal government in health and public transport.

Jblock
surreal_humor

In light of the recent news on a specific Indiana pizzeria refusing to cater a gay wedding, the argument needs to be debated: do businesses have a right to discriminate? I will press the argument that private businesses should have a legal right to choose who they do business with and that it is not the position of any government to interfere in their freedom of choice. Who would like to have a civil debate?...

The Christian birth story of Jesus is contradictory with other information in the bible.

Nathaniel.Braswell

I am greatly looking forward to this debate! Burdens: In the first Pro speech, the speaker will first accept and than lay down his arguments on why he believes the Christian birth story of Jesus Christ is contradictory with other parts of the Christian bible. Likewise, I will argue that this story is not contradictory. The reason I limited it to the birth of Jesus Christ was because it would be too broad of a debate to discuss the entire bible. Rules: Please remain ethical- I create...
