This debate won't be started for at least another 2 weeks. Between then and now, I'll work on the resolution. Any advice on that part is welcome. The debate should be impossible to accept and I will be nominating judges and doing a choose winner option. Judges are yet to be determined and any suggestions by potential opponents will be considered. I'll be arguing that criminals should have the option of being caned it going to prison, should they receive a jail/prison sentence. Yes, e...

Homosexuals are people just like heterosexuals. They deserve the same rights. It should be as simple as that. We are spending time money and energy fighting love. It doesn't matter if you believe that it is right or wrong, it's still love. People should not fear holding hands with the person they love, or kissing them in public. And everyone should be free to Marry the person that they love. This isn't gay rights, It's human rights....

The Death Penalty for the guilty

Mopi
FantumHeist

Right, I'll be going against why there should be no death penalty for the guilty.1)Firstly, it goes agaisnt the very law of Right to protection of life, by awarding a person the death penalty, we ourselves are violating the law and a violation of law is not acceptable2) Its does not teach the guilty anything, if you look at it.

Do use of "profanities" hinder one's credibility/argument?

Mister_Man
Mr.Grace

This came to my mind after finding it is against the terms of service to use profane language on this site. - Does this really matter? I do not imply insults. Insults and profanity or swear words are completely different things. The Wikipedia definition [1] is what I will use. If you do not like that definition, please provide your own. My argument is that the use of profane language should not only not offend someone if it is not used in the form of an insult, but it should not take a...
