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 Jerusalem be a Jewish territory

Isaac2428
brian.bors7

I believe that Israel belongs to the Jews to be governed and ruled as a religious nation. Jerusalem was built by Jewish hand and the only reason they left was because they were forced off by the Romans. I don't wan't to hear anti antisemitism or Islamophobia just tell me your opinions and I will share mine....

Should Public Prayers be Allowed in Schools?

bob-bo
Abdullahthegreat

My belief is that public praying in schools should not be allowed in schools. The reason for this is to not separate students into social groups such as "The Christians" or "The Muslims" and other religion social groups. My second reason is to ban/ not allow Public prayers in schools is because it is violating other religions of other students and forcing religion onto children. My third and final reason are aggressive discussions may be done when talking about this subject. Which distracts chil...

God does not exist (probably)

batman01
JimShady

This is a debate in which pro (me) has to prove that God does not exist (probably) where God is defined as God: the creator and ruler of the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being. The god does not necessarily have to be the Judeo-Christian god but must give some sort of moral direction (ie cannot be a god who has not seen or done anything since the beginning of time). Thanks, I hope this will be a great debate....

It is better to believe in the God of the Bible than to be an Atheist

kwagga_la
DreamilyMidnightBlue

My position is as follows: If I believe in God and it turns out God did not exist then I don't have to face any accountability for my disbelief. If I am right that the Christian God does exist then eternal awards awaits me when I die and still do not have to face any accountability and do not have to face any judgment. If the atheist is right and there is no God and no afterlife then he or she will not have to face any accountability for not believing in God. Should the atheist be wrong he/s...

Cain was justified in his murder of Abel

Sardukar

From Wikipedia " And the human knew Eve his woman and she conceived and bore Cain, and she said, "I have got me a man with the Lord." And she bore as well his brother Abel, and Abel became a herder of sheep while Cain was a tiller of the soil. And it happened in the course of time that Cain brought from the fruit of the soil an offering to the Lord. And Abel too had brought from the choice firstlings of his flock, and the Lord regarded Abel and his offering but did not regard Cain and his off...

Why don't christians take their god at his word?

Pest

Why don’t christians take their god at his word?A perfect example of this is god freely admitting that he is “evil” and yet christians do NOT take their god as being evil even though their god does several times in his bible freely admit that he is evil. In other words...

God Hurts People

holla1755
swayamprakash

One conception that I think is a misconception is that God never hurts a person, that God always makes a person be happy, that God never makes a person want to hurt another person, and that God never makes a person be in pain. It's evident from all the wars, conflicts, disasters, and suffering that occurred throughout history and that occurs currently in this world that God does hurt people. God has tortured people. God has even hurt Jesus Christ....
