Japanese internment by the U.S. during WW2 was justified

Danielle

Danielle please read round one again before accepting. Let me know if anything is unfair to either of us so it can be amended. I hate FDR and I like using this as an example of how horrible of a human being he was, but I have a confession. As bad as his policies were, the policy in question was justified. It was not a result of racism or hysteria, but the most logical course of action given the available information. Democrats, please do a better job defending your s...

Abortion on Demand Should Be Illegal

buildingapologetics
cakerman

I am pro life, and I believe abortion on demand should be illegal at all stages. If you believe abortion should be legal on demand, you may present your case first. By on demand, I mean for any reason. This is not about instances of rape, incest, or the safety of the mother. This is over the issue of whether a mother should be able to get an abortion whenever she wants to. Since this issue revolves around when life begins, I ask my opponent to provide the criteria that they believe must b...

Homosexual Behavior Is Immoral

RationalTheism
VenomousPen

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...

Should Abortion Be Legal?

Bobthe2002
Bitch_Goddess

Abortion is murder. The killing of an innocent human being is wrong, even if that human being has yet to be born. Unborn babies are considered human beings by the US government. The federal Unborn Victims of Violence Act, which was enacted "to protect unborn children from assault and murder," states that under federal law, anybody intentionally killing or attempting to kill an unborn child should "be punished... for intentionally killing or attempting to kill a human being." The act also states...

Crimes are linked to mental health.

Reagansimon
Stephaniedorian

According to the Australian Institute of Criminology, those who are battling mental health are more inclined to commit injustice and illegal acts. In retribution, they develop four times more of a chance in encountering a mental health disorder, then one in public. Though many may argue that others classify one who's committed a crime to have a mental illness or dissorder, police officers detain one out of two that have a history of a mental illness/disorders, and the majority of the time will d...

Gay marriage should be illegal.

Nordung
Starfleet

1. It Is Not Marriage Calling something marriage does not make it marriage. Marriage has always been a covenant between a man and a woman which is by its nature ordered toward the procreation and education of children and the unity and well being of the spouses. The promoters of same-sex "marriage" propose something entirely different. They propose the union between two men or two women. This denies the self-evident biological, physiological, and psychological differences between men and w...
