Is it there something that really affect us on gay couples marrying?, if we give it a deep thought we will surely find lots and lots of reasons why they should not be allowed to marry, yes, there will be alot, but i can assure you that non of them will have a solid background, maybe morals, morals to who?, ethics to who?, is there an actual tangible reason of great consequence?, is there by any chance a reason why gay marriage is open to everyone's opinion and heterosexual are not?, PREJUDICE la...

Negative- I stand in negation, "Resolved: In a democratic society, felons ought to retain the right to vote." I offer the following definitions for clarification of the resolution:   Democracy- the political orientation of those who favor government by the people or by their elected representatives. (If argued in CX, state that felons do not favor the government because they cannot abide by the rules that the government has set forth.)   Felon- Someone who commits a felony; A Felony is a l...

Whenever the teachings of a religion is so wrong, that disobedience to its teachings is in fact doing what was right, like saving life, for example, then we may know that God did not set up that religion, but that it is the product of sinful man. In the Bible we are told about God: "Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity…" Hab. 1:13. This shows us that YHWH the one and only true God is so holy that He had nothing to do with corruption, but not so, with the Hin...

I was recently assigned a persuasion paper for school. My chosen topic is cloning. Before I began my research I knew very little about the topic, only that it was highly controversial. But after only some beginning research I now believe otherwise. Cloning is a process that should be continued. I feel this way because cloning has many health benefits. Such as, cloning can be used to clone failing organs to replace old, or damaged ones. Also, by cloning a child from a single parent hereditary d...

Bush Lied People Died? Part II

Watchman81
Seerss

Okay, so I tried this debate once, but didn't get a good opponent. Hopefully this one will work better. Here is my opening argument. In this debate, I am arguing that President Bush did NOT lie in order to justify the United State's invasion of Iraq. Whether or not the United State's invasion of Iraq was justifiable or not is irrelevant to this debate. I am arguing against the popular belief that Bush used deception in order to justify the US' invasion of Iraq. The reason we went to war wa...
