Gay marriage should be legal.

adaffodil
CiRrO

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....

Homosexuality is natural and morally correct. Homophobia is morallly incorrect.

I. I am gay. I was made a certain way and never had a choice. I am really outraged by the many prejudice things I have read on this website. I hope to change somebody's mind on homosexuality with this debate, although, it is unlikely that they will stop being prejudice. It was important for me to use many sources and ALL ARE SCIENTIFICALLY BASED. I know how easy it is to find a non-scientific biased site, but all of my sources are scientific. +++ Homosexuality is natural. It is not a choic...

Shtookah
RoyLatham

Free Market - Business governed by the laws of supply and demand, not restrained by government interference, regulation or subsidy. Externality - Activities and conditions whose benefits (called external economies) and costs (called external dis-economies) are not reflected in the market price of goods and services.

THIS HOUSE WOULD LEGALLY RECOGNIZE HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGES

okay. basically homosexuals are those we call as "gays, lesbians, etc" in the other hand, marriage is a sacred sacrament that needs to be respected. if we would allow this homosexuals to marry, we would actually deprive the culture of the society with which, they are used to men-women marriages. with the given explanations. i believe that it's best set in the Philippines since homosexual marriages here are not yet allowed...

Marijuana should be legalized in the US

Chuckles
DDRPsycho

I already posted this debate but my opponent was unable to post argu First off i'll start by saying under a government that allows the use of tobacco (specifically cigarettes) and alcohol, that same government should also allow marijuana (for recreational and medicinal purposes). I'll start with showing that marijuana is safer than cigarettes: Many say a marijuana is worse because it has no filter. But they do not realize that when you cigarette you smoke the whole thing down, whereas with m...

Abortion: The Most Controversial Issue Since Slavery

blondesrule502
LakevilleNorthJT

In the argument of abortions, there are two sides. Of these two sides, life is the most important. Abortion gives women the power to kill an unborn child, but laws created by politicians are not rights. No human is supposed to be above another in such away that one is in danger of dying. Abortion however, exercises this right....

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...

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...
