Debate: Churches ought to pay taxes

Hayd
thett3

Full resolution: Churches ought to pay taxesThe debate is impossible to accept, apply in the comments if you are interested and I will send the challenge to the applicant of my choosing. First round is acceptance only. No new arguments in the final round. Kritiks aren't allowed. Taxes on churches would mean regular property taxes and commercial income taxes. Basically they lose their tax exempt status....

Is purgatory Biblical?

Rjupudi18
RebholzJack

I will argue that the idea of purgatory proposed mainly by the Roman Catholic Church is not Biblical and therefore a false belief. Pro can go ahead and post their initial arguments in round 1. There is no particular format except arguments and counter-arguments from both sides. Definition of Purgatory: Purgatory - (in the belief of Roman Catholics and others) a condition or place in which the souls of those dying penitent are purified from venial sins, or undergo the temporal punishment that...

How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
Lois_gray

IF YOU ARE UNABLE OR UNWILLING TO READ THIS WHOLE POST AND THEN RESPOND TO THE SINGLE QUESTION IT ASKS, GO AWAY. I FIND IT HILARIOUS THAT THESE ATHEISTS KEEP VOMITING WORDS AND YET NOT ONE HAS ANSWERED MY Q. If you actually answer the Q, I will challenge you to a longer debate. If not, you will stop polluting my screen sooner than later. Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a r...

Would A World Without Religion Be Better?

prossnip42
DumbellDoor

Would a World Without Religion be better? I believe so. I mean just think for a second about that. Almost the entirety of the world's problems currently are thanks to religion. The middle East,terrorist attacks all over Europe,anti abortion morons,the KKK,The Westboro Baptist Church and so on and so forth. But some people like to say "Oh well Religious texts like the Bible and the Koran have some very good morals and it's thanks to them that we are civilized the way we are today!" Because,you kn...

Emperor_Edward
John_C_1812

"No child should go to school each day to have the class declare that her religious beliefs are wrong in an exercise that portrays her and her family as less patriotic than believers." -David Niose, president of the American Humanist Association Back then, we were a nation full of white and Christian people, we were that same nation who added "under God" to show that we were different from the Soviet Union. But now, it is not the same. America is a changing country; a melting pot of peo...

God as a Biblical Figure is Evil

Castaway
JohnDoe360

God, as a figure in the Bible, is clearly an evil figure by any reasonable form of morality. This is a figure that genocides entire people, a figure that created man knowing they would sin and setting it up so they would fail, supports slavery and supports the killing of people for minor offenses that aren't even wrong like gay sex. This is a figure who is clearly evil. To begin, he is a mass murderer. Many a time, God has wiped out entire people. The whole world during the time of Noah, the...
