Gay Marraige Should Be Allowed.


Gays should be allowed to marry partners of their choice just as heterosexual couples do. It is ignorant in today's world to deny such a basic right to an individual because of something that is innate. Yes, sexuality is not a choice, it is innate. For my first point, let me state that a civil union is not a reasonable compromise for a legal marriage. Most civil unions don't have the same rights as a legal marriage has. Even if we made all civil unions exactly equal to legal marriage but cal...

The entire world is bound to become communist


I have been thinking about this topic a lot lately and have decided to turn it into a debate. I will be taking pro and therefore will be arguing that the entire world will, one day, more than likely become communist. This is not based on the NWO conspiracy, rather, it is based on the notion of the US founding fathers as stated "a democracy can and will not last". First round is acceptance, then following two are rebuttals with the fourth being the conclusion. Good luck to my future contender....

Gay marriage


Gay marriage is wrong and should never have been legalized. This "progress" that people like you claim that America has made is only proving to be a step back. Real progress would be a way to achieve this without restricting the liberties of those within the Christian community. What is progress when there is a group of people who are being forced to commit actions that go against what they believe in? I do not believe in this at all, but if it must be done then why can't gay couples go some...
