Gay marriage should be legal.

adaffodil

Simply put, it should be legal. I can find no compelling argument as to why it shouldn't be legal. So, I will ramble a bit. This must get to 100 words. I like words. Words are wordsy. Words, words, words. Sentences too. Also, two. Sentences are collections of words put together, often beginning with a capital letter and ending with a punctuation mark....

David Icke's view that the world is ruled by a secret group called "Illuminati" is false

GeoLaureate8

I welcome GeoLaureate8 to this debate, and him in general to this website. I hope this turns out to be quite enjoying given it's unique nature ;) Unless I am mistaken, most members of Debate.org are new to these ideas that Geo has recently espoused upon entering this site. In general, his ideas align with David Icke's - an infamous British writer and public speaker who has developed this type of "New Age Conspiracism"[1]. To summarize it briefly, he basically believes that there is a secret g...

Wikipedia is an acceptable source to use in debates.

Im_always_right

Wikipedia is often not allowed as a source in a debate. People say "Oh, anyone can change it, they can make it say anything." While this is partially true, one forgets that unless something on Wikipedia has a source, it can be challenged and removed. Also, I would like to point out that Wikipedia has been found to be about as accurate as the Encyclopedia Britannica http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4530930.stm The Encyclopedia Britannica is considered reliable and is by no means taboo...

It is inconsiderate to protest Christmas just because you don't believe in it , it isnt hurting you

kels1123
Oberbeck

Here is what I want to debate . If you don't believe in Christmas , that is fine. But why must a person protest that it is wrong and evil and such? If you don't believe in , thats your decision. Why must people protest it, how does it bother you so much? Christmas is a Holiday many believe in , many don't . I don't think just because you don't believe in a holiday that many people do that you have to criticize it. How does it affect you that others celebrate Christmas? Why does it bother you...

Homosexuals are perfectly justified and deserve all the rights of other people.

giuocob
beem0r

So...gays are definitely people. Their homosexual actions have no negative impact on anyone but themselves (placing them apart from rapists and pedophiles.) Therefore, no country is morally justified in placing restrictions against any of their rights. Whoever accepts this debate must find a reason why we have a right to discriminate against gays....

Animals: Should They Have Rights Under U.S. Law?

marikunin
goldspurs

Animals should have basic rights under U.S. law. There is research done by many organizations that show that abusing animals is only a step below abusing children. Also, though animals may not have reason and logic like humans, they do have some degree of emotion and deserve to be treated decently. In almost every organized religion, studies show that animals are not to be treated poorly....

No body really deserves arbitrary respect.

tenjusato
Mangani

People always say that everyone deserves the utmost respect. When someone speaks in class to present their work, it is a given that they get respect. Teachers always tell their students to treat each other with respect. Yet if every one gave and in return got respect, what is the merit of even having it. Like money and power, respect is something people earn rather than deserve. It is apparent that today's society has grown so sensitive that criticism is often misconstrued as an insult. Many tim...
