Are there sufficient legal grounds to criminalize flag desecration in the United States?

WillSelenus
Luharis

I will be arguing the position that there exist no sufficient legal grounds under current United States jurisprudence to justify a criminalization of flag desecration. Ancillary to that, if my opponent wishes to challenge the current state of jurisprudence, I will also be arguing that flag burning should be permitted on similar but more normative grounds. Argument on Legality: 1) Statutes criminalizing flag desecration would be in violation of the freedom of speech, which is of course embodi...

The debate is whether or not, students should have the right to vote in school board elections? I am the pro side. We , the students are mostly effected by the school board elections. We want someone that listens to the students to as well as their parents. School is foundation for your careers. We should have a say in how our own schools are run....

First of all movie box is completely legal(don't argue this that's not up for debate) ok I think movie box is better because I don't have to sign up for an account and it's on mobile so you can enjoy a movie anywhere in the world with wifi it's sort of hard to lug a laptop around and you can predownload movies so you can watch without wifi And I'm pretty sure more people have mobile devices for movie box over computers and I know that you might think you need jailbreak for moviebox but now i...

Theism (Christianity) vs Athiesm

godorabsurdity
Theunkown

My position is that God created the world more or less as we know it and everything in it, approximately 6000 years ago. It is my observation that everything we see in nature shows this, and also - very doubt in Creation proves that God exists. An agreement to debate proves that God exists. A debate presupposes truth. Truth presupposes God. You cannot get truth from an evolved meat machine. Open a shaken up can of Coke and a can of Sprite. The winner of this debate is the drink that produces...

There Are Good Logical/Scientific Arguments to Justify Abortion

sengejuri
atheistliberal

I am Con. Debate is closed, comment if you want to accept. The rules are simple - my opponent (Pro) will attempt to give logical or scientific evidence for why abortion is morally acceptable. I will attempt to refute such evidence. If Pro submits even a single piece of evidence that I cannot refute, they win. If not, I win. Pro agrees to begin by presenting their evidence in Round 1, and will only type "End of Debate" in Round 4 to equal out the entries for each side. Both sides agree to avo...

My first point is that homework builds a sense of responsibility and commitment towards schoolwork. Everyone will have to face the fact that one day they would have to g...

Something regarding atheism vs religion - not sure yet

Let me give some background. This is my screen name in several places online, including at "freethoughtblogs.com/axp/". I am in no way affiliated with The Atheist Experience nor the Atheist Community of Austin. I am a mere regular commenter. One day, Mike hired a service to promote his website, and that service posted several comments to The Atheist Experience blog. (That's the stored given to me by Mike in email.) Here is the post. http://freethoughtblogs.com/axp/2014/09/12/abilene-talk-i...
