Gay Marriage

Nely

Why do people discriminate against same sex couples if they are just like any other couple, discriminating against them is just like discriminating against some one because of their skin color, if people where able to get over the fact that everyone is the same no matter where they come from how come they cant just accept that some people have different sexual preferences but that doesn't make them any less. Denying same sex couples the right to get married violates the equal protection clause o...

The Future is Bright

Generic
codemeister13

The first round is just for acceptance and to clarify the debate. The topic is this: the next two will be better than any other in history for the human race. People will live longer, be happier, and generally have a better time than ever before. The human race will not drive itself into extinction,another dark age, or any other generally unpleasant situation, but will instead innovate and improve living standards. Of course, I'm expecting that many will have strong arguments against this, so...

Gay Marriage: Yay or Nay?

Nonsensicality
somenerd224

Gay marriage is good. Some people would say that in the Bible, it rules against gay marriage, saying that 'any man who lies with another man is sinful', but it also says in the Bible as well that Jesus (you know, the guy who the Bible was practically based on) said to love unconditionally. And if you also view this topic from the religious perspective, if God created mankind, and created everything about them, and knows the past present and future, then He created homosexual people. And why wou...

Consensual Necrophilia

whiteflame
kventling

In case there's uncertainty here, I'll provide some definitions: Consensual: relating to or involving consent, esp. mutual consent. In this case, consent would be acquired before the person's demise, and will require the signature of both the person whose body is to be used and the proposed partner. Both would have to be in their right minds before providing their consent. Necrophilia: sexual intercourse with or attraction toward corpses. In this case, it would embody the former mainly, wi...
