The United States Is A Christian Nation

Oxymoron
Magicr

Thesis: The United States was heavily influenced by Christianity and its basic tenets and are thus a Christian Nation. As Pro, I will defend the resolution by making it clear that the Founders explicitly state that they and the United States were molded by Christianity. First Round Is For Acceptance What I Mean By Christian Nation:

Sieben
badger

Since he is not an anarcho capitalist himself, he should have no problem.Since he cannot formulate a resolution, I am left to conclude that badger is a mental retard or troll.My burden in this debate is to prove that badger regularly engages in (intentionally) incoherant and moronic behavi...

Preamble: ====== For the sake of the health of the grossly overweight and also for the sake of the sensibilities of normal people who have to watch them with their snouts in the trough, I affirm that it's time to introduce a law that will make it illegal for the obese to over-indulge themselves on food in restaurants. Observation: ======== This is intended to be a light-hearted debate, not meant to cause offence and it is therefore requested that any opinions expressed herein, by either P...

The minimum wage should not be raised to $15/hr for fast food workers

RoyLatham
TheHitchslap

Unions recently staged protests demanding that McDonald's in the U.S. should be required to pay workers a minimum of $15 per hour. An ABC News report provides some background on the issue [1. http://abcnews.go.com/ABC_Univision/News/fast-food-workers-demand-pay/story?id=20235304]. While McDonald's was the focus of the demonstrations, a law cannot target just one fast food company. If that were legal, other chains might get most of the business, McDonald's w...

The woman has a choice over her body, but to a certain degree. no more than 8 weeks after fertilization, the fetus starts to react to touch. no more than 20 weeks, the fetus develops nerves.the fetus responds to pain. the fetus is being killed because of what an inconvenience parenthood would be for the mother. statistics...

Gay Marriage: Yay or Nay?

Nonsensicality
somenerd224

Gay marriage is good. Some people would say that in the Bible, it rules against gay marriage, saying that 'any man who lies with another man is sinful', but it also says in the Bible as well that Jesus (you know, the guy who the Bible was practically based on) said to love unconditionally. And if you also view this topic from the religious perspective, if God created mankind, and created everything about them, and knows the past present and future, then He created homosexual people. And why wou...
