Abortion

micellio
TheMarketLibertarian

Abortion is the biggest moral sin that we as a society have accepted since slavery. A woman's "right" to choose whether her child lives or dies is unacceptable and should be prohibited. Every person's life has meaning and to rob an unborn child of their right to life is a horrendous act that should never go unpunished. I am not saying I want to control what a woman does with her body but I am saying that everyone must follow the law and not commit murder....

the validity of transsexuality and identification

CamiJamitinya43X
melanielust

I was walking down a sidewalk and found myself behind a boy who dressed like a girl and holding hands with a girl who was dressed like a girl. Obviously for me to make any assumptions (which i guess I already have.. sorry!) about that particular situation is wrong, but it did spark this question in my mind: If a person who was born a male and has a sex change to female has sexual relations with a person who was born female and is still female, who if anyone, is gay? I believe that the female is...

Should people go to jail for kicking a cat?

Elispan

People should go to jail for kicking a cat because it is a very cruel and inhumane behavior. Nowadays, pets like cats or dogs have played an important role in our life, some people even take them as one of their family members. Human being is a life ,while a cat is also a life, we ought to respect every life. However, some people like to kick pets or kill pets for fun, even eat them. Kicking a cat is to give it unnecessary pain, it means animals abuse. People's desire will never be satisfied, if...

I am for abolishing all holidays as not to shove falsehoods down the throats of innocent people and encourage make-believe garbage amongst youngsters, to move on from the old ways that hold us back and move on to the future. Let people develop there own paradigms . This constant flow of the same holidays that play over and over every year like a broken record makes life stale and relentlessly unbearable. We must abort the holidays....

Do you think christian "forgiveness" or catholicism confession enables people to be sociopaths?

ilovejews7
asox44

I look at the Christian concept of forgiveness and Catholicism's confession, as a means of rewarding one's behavior. How can a person be a "good Christian" if the person argues "that we are all sinners" due to jesus's sacrifice that enabled Christians to continually sin, without rectifying their sins, or for that matter, changing one's behavior... What good is catholic confession if a person continually confesses without adhering to the catholic morals that they preach or follow? I look at both...

Is there such a thing as Love.

Sonofcharl
jazasultan

3 Open rounds. A maximum of 100 words per round. Con proposes that, love is an overused descriptive word. Used when trying to consciously explain, subconscious physiological responses to a variety of different situations. For example: The love for a partner is not the same as the love of ice cream. The love of a partner, actually represents an instinctive reproductive or pair bonding response, or the gratification of these responses. A love of ice cream is actually representative...

Intellectual property impedes societal progress!

Smooosh
asox44

Nobody can truly own an idea. It is a made up standard which can't be enforced if nobody adheres to this silly doctrine. What if there was a patent on the wheel, or fire making or agricultural? I encourage everyone to ignore pattents, and I especially encourage college students to secretly record their professors lectures and post them on youtube at the end of the semester!!!! Definitions Intellectual property: a work or invention that is the result of creativity, such as a manuscript or a...
