Is Medea responsible for the death of her children?

oscanoak
leah_of_hyrule

1. Both parties agree to the definition of anger which is a strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility. 2. We also agree that revenge is defined by the act of gaining satisfaction from another person's expense or pain. 3. Medea is responsible for killing her children because she let anger get the best of her. Anger is no excuse to do something drastic like that. 4. Not only does she kill her children but she kills the King and his daughter also. Even though what her husband did wa...

Philocat

This is a rematch debate of ours, between Philocat and I. Please accept this debate. If you wish to debate something else, you can tell me, but I feel this debate shall be a great learning experience for both of us.

This debate is meant to hopefully reveal truth about the nature of Catholicism and clear up the great deal of confusion people have with it. Basically, if you have any issues, questions, contentions or anything else, I will do my best to argue against those in light of Catholicism. There is no traditional format to this debate....

Anger and revenge are two big themes, driving factors, in Medea"s stor...
