Should acts of terror be published

sammycarr
AFism

So I'm doing a debate with my school and the model is that this house would not publish acts of terror, I am a proposing this model and personally I feel that by publishing acts of terror it is causing an unnecessary uproar and panic in society, I also feel like it is shining a light on terrorism and creating the reaction within society that terrorism is intended to do, I belive that if acts of terrorism were not published that there would be less acts of terrorism....

Lane splitting and Filtering should be legalized.

When riding a motorcycle of standard size you tend to find that the other vehicles on the road lose sight of you. Cell phones, GPS, passengers, and even watches distract drivers into accidents every single day. The most common collision associated with these distractions is a rear ended impact (most commonly at a traffic stopping point). Collisions in closed or caged motor vehicles are never good, yet the more severe collision type is found when an enclosed vehicle hits an open vehicle. In these...

Cats an immoral choice of pet

LoveAndDebate
Kevin_Cardinale

Noob debate, more for practice but I'd appreciate a challenge with feedback. Cats eat the local wildlife which was there first, also they just don't care about you, sorry, but they're just evil. Ever heard of guide cat? (this is just a practice debate, I'm not truly a cat hater though I think there are too many and they do have a bad effect on nature)...

Homosexuality is wrong.

LaughItUpLydia
iliketoargue22

It violates natural law. The marriage denies a child a father or mother. It turns a moral right into a civil right. It defeats the state's purpose of benefitting marriage. It imposes it's acceptance onto all of society. And it offends God. A Creator is required, for the universe to even be possible, mainly due to the 'cause and effect' problem but also due to the phsycology of existence and of life itself. Therefore, we infer that God created us. There are historical documents that prove this,...

What, if anything, is wrong or immoral about being gay?

missmedic
PatrickTheWise

I will be arguing that there is nothing wrong with homosexuality. Since there is nothing intrinsically wrong about homosexuality from a secular perspective, do adult consensual homosexual acts and same-sex partnerships have harmful consequences?...

Censorship is irrational

Will22

Clarification: The censorship referred to here is not about government censorship of citizens speech, a popular topic recently, nor an other types of opinionated information filtering. This is not a debate about the freedom of speech. I apologize if the title misled. Rules: 1) First round for acceptance. 2) Format being introduction, rebuttal and conclusion (no new points). 3) Profession maintained at all times (no trolling, carelessly crude spelling/grammar, etc.) Violation of rules resu...

The legal drinking age in the United States should be lowered to 18

zmandebater
DrewMcD

There are many countries that have instated legal age limit for drinking laws deeming the legal age for all, or some types of alcohol to be 18. At 18 people normally have less responsibilities, so drinking will not effect their day to day living any more than some one who is 21. At a younger age people will also start to slow down their drinking habits. Brain development is relatively done by 18 as well. It will also bring in more spending for businesses, and possibly causing people to get jobs...

Gay Marriage

Toobu
Varrack

Hey all. First, I apologize if this is against some sort of rule, or if this isn't the sort of thing that should be posted here. I'm very, very new. Anyways, I'm giving a speech on why gay marriage should be legal in a conservative Christian speech and debate league, so it'll be a tough audience. Please rip the following speech apart as best you can. I definitely want to have some back and forth, too. "" I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declar...
