Gay Marriage should be legal everywhere

jackinthebox
cameronl35

Traditionally in this country, marriage has been defined as a religious & legal commitment between a man and woman, as well as the ultimate expression of love. Homosexual relationships are increasingly gaining acceptance in this country; however, these couples have not been permitted to marry. Some states have considered a new form of commitment called a "civil union", which essentially is marriage without using the word "marriage".

It doesn't seem like she does. This all happened a while back. I don't think she deserved killing herself, but I don't think she can just get off scot-free. Because she brought it on herself. When the guy in the chat room asked her to flash, she had two choices, flash...

I have never heard this guy make one intelligent statement. Right now, I am reading a book, and there's a part that talks about an interview Olbermann had with Playboy in I believe 2007. His exact statement was "Fox News is worse than al Qaeda." He also even said that Fox News is worse than the KKK. I don't think he realizes how many people he offended. I know I would be offended if I had a family member die in 9/11, or if I had a family member killed by the KKK. Last time I checked, Fox News do...

Ore_Ele

The United States should not provide aid to Japan for the following 3 reasons. 1) Japan has the economy and financial means to help itself. 2) America does not have the financial means to help Japan. 3) The recent disasters are not that bad. I await my opponents arguments and rebuttals...

Wikileaks

Xenith967
Scyrone

Wikileaks should be classified as a terrorist organization bent on the downfall of the United States of America. This will be the Pf debate style. Contention- Wikileaks should be shut down because it is a terrorist organization with only one goal in mind and that is to destroy the United States of America.The latest breed of anarchist is not a protester who takes to the streets, Molotov cocktail in hand. His weapon of choice is the laptop and his battleground the Internet, which he uses to s...
