There is a legitimate, rational reason to ban same sex marriage in the United States

Free_Th1nker
joph

Although more than half the states in the United States prohibit homosexual marriage, I disagree that they have a legitimate, rational reason to do so. Pro will have to propose a legitimate, rational reason to prohibit same sex marriage. *DISCLAIMER* Leviticus 18:22 and all other passages from scripture may not be used as legitimate or rational argument. Tautological arguments will not be accepted as rational or legitimate. The purpose of this debate is to find legal or social arguments that sho...

Is globalization key to humanities long term survival as a species?

Astal3
IrishWolverine

The Internet is arguably the most impactful invention of all time. It allows instant communication across the globe and allows people to experience and partake in events that otherwise would have never been possible. Ignorance on world events becomes more of a choice in developed countries due to the access of information. Humanity is a highly self destructive species and when it comes to the grand scheme of things we are so busy fighting amongst ourselves that we are practically helpless when i...

Hate crime laws

TheKnifeKnight
Chrystahist

I will be taking the side that hate crime laws are not necessary. Keep it friendly is all I ask. My first point is that hate crime laws create protected classes. Point two is that hate crime laws make the issue no longer about the crime committed but then focuses on why they did the crime. If a person is assaulted, would it make it hurt more if the assaulter did it because the victim was gay? Assault is illegal and should be charged because of the crime not also because of how they f...

Life is not worth living, when you fear it more than death.

"Anti-social behavior is a sign of intelligence in a world full of conformists." - Nikola Tesla Most people are like tiny vials that do not have enough space for air to compress against the glass, so they do not understand the concept of pressure. The few whom do understand the consequences of their actions, that which are namely depicted by mostly threatening individuals who could not handle the pressure, often call themselves dangerous; or "there's a monster inside me". Those that fail to u...

Abortion is Murder

sengejuri
marquis1212

*****ONLY ACCEPT IF YOU WILL ACTUALLY DEBATE THIS. My last two opponents forfeited. In light of the recent Supreme Court decision, this seems a relevant topic. My position is that abortion should be considered murder in most cases. The qualifier "most" is used because I wish to exclude abortion in cases of rape, incest, or danger to the life of the mother. I believe these are unique situations and they only make up a very small percentage of abortions performed annually. Terms are defined as fol...

The first round is just acceptance, however, there is one requirement:Religion cannot be used as reasoning. As a human being with my own free will I am allowed to have my own religious beliefs, just like everyone else. The beliefs of one religion cannot dictate how everyone lives their lives. ...
