Gay marriage should be legal nationwide in the US!!!


Gay marriage should be legal nationwide here in the United States. Having illegal marriage is discrimination. Everyone is equal. People should be allowed to marry anyone they want to. If straight people can marry who ever they want, then gays should be able to marry who ever they want. The reason why so many people don't want gay marriage legalized is because it is against God. People get offended when they see same sex couples for that reason. Truth is, if you don't like it then don't be near t...

The death penalty must be abolished.


There is no justification for allowing the death penalty to continue if innocent lives are being lost. According to a recent study, if all death-sentenced defendants remained under sentence of death indefinitely at least 4.1% would be exonerated(1). As a result, we must pause to consider how many innocent lives have been mercilessly taken by the death penalty and those who instigate it. How can we justify such senseless killing and mask it as some twisted form of justice? With all the technology...

Should hate speech be protected by freedom of speech?


Absolutely not. Yes, in America there is the freedom to express your opinion, but hate speech is offensive. Yes, we can share our opinions, and it is okay if our opinion clashes with someone else's, but there is no need for this clashing to become what is known as hate speech. A line has to be drawn, so here's my thoughts. Allowed: Freedom to express opinions, to be heard NOT allowed: Using this freedom to provoke violence, or hurt someone else. The freedom of speech is there to prevent op...
