Is Gay Marriage Healthy For Child Development and Morally Right?

Brasseur
peter_havers

Despite the increasingly tolerant attitude towards homosexuality in society, especially in the West, the treatment of homosexuals continues to differ from one country to another. In some nations, homosexuality is illegal whilst in others, homosexuals are now accorded an increasing catalogue of rights that have been enjoyed by heterosexuals all along. In the UK for instance, by virtue of a ruling of the European Court of Human Rights in Lustig-Prean and Beckett v UK (1999) gays can now serve in t...

Objectivity

Regardless if a person is a legal citizen or not a legal citizen, we should only have safe drivers on our streets and highways. Illegal persons are already driving in the USA so let's be sure they are tested and have demonstrated that they have the competence to drive a vehicle safely and that they are not a danger to other drivers....

FEBRUARY
bluesteel

See: TrueJusticeForMeredithKercher, Rudy Guede posts. NO WAY is the indictment of AMANDA KNOX and RAFFAELE SOLLECITO a matter of corruption, or international/ political bias; GUILTY! SUPREME COURT'S SENTENCING REPORT: Meredith was virtually motionless throughout the attack; defensive wounds almost non-existent, because she was STRONGLY RESTRAINED. (Meredith's arms were held behind her back). Dr Galati"s appeal argued it was ILLEGAL for Hellmann and Zanetti NOT to have taken the Supre...

Foreign labour brings more good than bad

Reversi_Black8007
said_it_all

I welcome the challenger first. Firstly i would like to establish my points. Firstly foreign workers help establish job opportunities. An immigrant will take a job within a 3-dimensional sector. Thus providing jobs for native born locals such as being promoted to supervisors. Since there are more workers to do the dirty jobs. Job opportunities can be opened. More workers (locals) are already losing their job to machines so what's there to lose. please present your arguement...

should sports be suspended from schools?

UsOSqUAd55
Hematite12

Sports should be included at school because when kids play sports and have school they work even harder just to stay playing that sport. Plus they say that the antidote to stress is physical activity. Plus it give kids a chance of a lifetime to get scouted or drafted. If you have ever heard of Ray Lewis look him up on Google and read his quote about leaving a legacy. Yeah sure parents or adults say that kids have their whole life to do something they love well why stop something kids really love...

Due to the large quantity of accidents occurring due to the ageing process, I believe people over the age of 60 should take a re-test. It is simply beneficial when it comes to protecting the lives of others....

Why soccer is way better than football?

freak23
Poiyurt

Soccer may not be as popular as football in America, but throughout the world, soccer is the main sport. In England, France, and Germany, the soccer fans in those countries outnumber the football fans throughout the world. Those three countries alone, that shows soccer is the sport over there. Second, soccer was created 6,500 years before football, by the ancient Chinese. Third, soccer has the most exciting overtime period(s) in all of sports. Nothing like going to a shootout to determine the wi...

9/11 was not an inside job.

darryshan
Free_Th1nker

The evidence for 9/11 being an inside job is factually deceiving, and requires many assumptions. For example, claims that the buildings fell at freefall speeds ignore the obvious debris that fell faster than the collapse, seen in this image: http://i.imgur.com/ny6BLbn.png Also, claims that WTC 7 was destroyed in a controlled demolition do not take into account any of the information from the NIST report which explored WHY the buildings fell. The investigation showed that the load bearing s...
