Is the Bible against women's rights?

foxxhajti
FollowerofChrist1955

The Bible has multiple quotes against the rights of women. In my opinion, it is a pretty outdated book reflecting the ideologies and philosophies of society during that era. Some quotes from the Bible which reflect this: 1) "You shall not covet your neighbor"s house. You shall not covet your neighbor"s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor." Exodus 20:17 - Neither men nor women should be considered anyone's properties by any mean...

Is Donald Trump racist?

DebaterGood

GOP candidate Donald Trump is constantly called racist by everyone who opposes him. I really don't see anything that Trump has said that can be considered remotely racist. Starting this debate my opponent should know: The definition of racism is: a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race Please don't kill yourself over formalities. As long as your grammar and spelling is b...

The U.S. should stop the production of pennies.

Pennies should be retired because they are practically worthless and cost more to produce than they are actually worth. Over time, pennies have been losing value. Today, there is not much you can buy with a single penny. You may say that you can add them together to get worth, but that takes finding 100 pennies, which is a waste of space and time. A single penny costs 1.7 cents, while only being worth 1 cent, so every penny produced costs the U.S. government 0.7 cents. So about every 143 pennies...

Mormons are Christians

Lachoneus1
Dman13331

I will be arguing that Mormons, or more accurately, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are Christians. I feel like this is a very simple debate, and that there shouldn't be conflict about it, but the belief that Mormons aren't Christians still persists. So, I leave the debate open to anyone that can argue otherwise. The definition of "Christian" is very simple and straight forward. According to Merriam-Webster, it is, "The religion that is based on the teachings o...
