Homosexual Behavior Is Immoral


I wish to thank my opponent for engaging me in this debate. I look forward to a spirited exchange. I will be defending the historic Christian position that homosexual behavior is immoral. Using the same method that Paul employed in Romans 1:26-27, I will argue that homosexuality is wrong because it is unnatural, meaning that it is contrary to the proper functioning of human sexual organs. Additionally, because both myself and my opponent are Christians, I will also make use of Biblical passag...

Do you believe in the concept of slut-shaming?


With the rising issue of rape and things that lead up to rape, a new term has arisen. Slut-shaming is shaming females who dress a provocative manner that might make men want to sleep with them. This brings the controversy that the victims of rape may have played a small factor in their own violation. This is not true. I believe that rape is rape, whether the female is wearing provocative clothing or dressed conservatively. If she says no and a man goes on anyway, that is rape. The belief that p...

Death Penalty


Full resolution: The death penalty is an ideal form of punishment for particular criminal cases. My stance on the Death Penalty: While I support rehabilitation in as many cases as possible, there are some cases where the Death Penalty is the best option. I only believe that the DP (Death Penalty) will be of absolutly no value when we have the option of completely (with 100% certainty) brainwashing criminals to esentually make them into "new" people. Now, in order for this debate to really...

Should abortion be illegal in the United States (In Most Cases)


[Before I go on two things need to be cleared up right away; 1- Things like, "God's will" will not be brought into this debate. 2- Every living organism on Earth in simplicity is either a cell or a mass of cells.] This is how the debate will go; Round 1: Acceptance and initial argument (Usually one sentence long, maybe two) Round 2: Extending argument in more detail Round 3: Rebuttals Round 4: Rebutting Rebuttals (You can only rebut things that were stated in Round 3 by your opponent) And...

A Good Debate on Gay Marriage


Thanks to everyone who expressed interest! Preface:I have seen many, many debates on Gay Marriage here on DDO--most of them are poorly constructed and not well thought-out. As someone who is gay, I also feel a need to set the record straight (pun intended) on many of the homophobic comments present in many of those debates. Therefore, to get this frustration out of my system,I would like to have a formal, polite, and high-quality debate on the permis...

A woman's place is in the home


Research shows that the majority of people believe that a woman's place is in the home: looking after the children; attending to domestic duties and ensuring her husband's dinner is on the table when he comes in from work. [1] Sadly, many women these days have chosen to abandon their feminine duties and pursue careers in industry and commerce instead - and it stands to reason that their families have suffered as a result of their neglect. Meanwhile, there is mass unemployment with the resu...

Today's feminism is just an excuse for misandry.


1st round acceptance only and in the final round no new info may be brought up. NOTE: This resolution applies to the USA only. no info from other countries may be brought up!!!! I have also made this debate almost impossible to accept! As pro I am arguing that today's feminism is an excuse for misandry, the belief that women are better than men, and that women are oppressed in today's society (all of this includes that women can't rape and that men can't get raped). Con is arguing agains...
