Christian Pacifism is incoherent

PhilK
CynicalDiogenes

I contend that any version of Christianity that requires Pacifism of it's adherents is incoherent. By Christianity, I mean the most general type that affirms that Christ is God, and that he died and was raised from the dead for the forgiveness of sin. By Pacifism, I mean the adherence to non-violence. The challenger must take the opposite position that following the teachings of Christ requires Pacifism....

Should debate.org stop making people have 3 debates until they can vote?

PillarOfSalt
RevNge

I don't think you should have to make 3 debates to be able to vote. This is sort of restricting who can and can't vote. I understand that only people who like to debate will vote and this will deter trolls, but 3 is too much and I believe it should be shortened....

We should keep out illegal immagrants and secure our border

august55433
Artemis4

I believe that illegal immigrants should be kept out of our country. They hurt our economy and are an overall bad thing for us. I know that they are just trying to get a better life, but what makes them better then the people that are doing the same thing, except that they are waiting in line? The illegal immigrants just cheat and budge ahead of everyone. They don't pay taxes, and they get to be on our welfare system. This overpowers the balance between people who pay taxes, and people who don't...

Freedom of the press-The right, guaranteed by the First...
