Catholic schools teaching students homosexuality is wrong

I feel like everyone is entitled to their opinion and it's not right to "brainwash" kids and force these ideas upon them. I was forced to go through this when preparing for my confirmation and this appalled me. There is a difference between learning about opinions only some people believe about their religion and then brainwashing the next generations. I am worried about my kids having to go through this and I'm only a teenager...let me know what you think....I just feel like kids should be able...

Imagine any religion is true, making it unknown for future generations is the best thing to do.

Normally in mayor religion communities if someone doesn't know the "rules" of their beliefs then they are not punished for them, so if nobody knows the rules, nobody gets punished, no exceptions....

discrimination against gay people is the same as discrimination against white people

I think that of you are black and are being discriminated against, that is completely wrong because you were born that way. If you are gay, you are going against your natural human instincts....

Did Noahs Ark Happen?

theisticscuffles

There is no possible way that Noah's Ark could have happened. The reason for this as the whole basis is filled with Logical Fallacies The first is the simple issue of space. Noah's Ark was 300 cubits by 50 and 30. This equals to 520 feet and 8 inches long, 86 and 9.3 inches wide, and 52 feet and 0.8 inches high. According to World Book Encyclopedia, "So far scientists have named and classified more than 1 1/2 million animals. Over half of these are types of insects and other species are d...

Rights don't exist.

TinyBudha

Rights are a figment of human imagination, they are made up, bogus, BS, bubka, nada. If anyone would like to defend that rights exist debate this topic. The burden to prove will be on the opposition. I take the position that rights don't exist objectively, but subjectively. My opponent has to show that they exist objectively, AKA in real life. Keep any gods out of this for simplicity sake. Rights- Legal, social, or ethical principles of freedom or entitlement...

An individual should be a drug addict.

TinyBudha

Hola, this debate is of course about whether or not one should be a drug addict. This sounds pretty obvious but I contend the resolution is true. The burden will be on CON as it should be pretty simple to explain, assuming I can prove this is ever true, I win. This will have to do with the individual. I will be speaking As If I am a drug addict to prove my point, you must prove to me that I should not be a drug addict. That is the point, nothing more. Please tell me if you want to debate me i...

Is gun control necessary?

gop_for_usa
AlternativeDavid

Now I understand fully, as a gun lover, that guns can and will be used for evil. But will making guns illegal truly solve anything?! The answer is simply, no. Criminals have a disregard for law so they do not care if they get caught with a gun, nor care if they have an illegal weapon. Now the argument here isn't that. That is just to show criminals have no care for laws or abiding by them. The true argument is if these laws will reduce armed crimes. And once again the answer is no. You may think...

Concussions Will Lead To The Death Of The NFL and Football as We Know It

traviscolorado
Blade-of-Truth

Because of the long and short term effects of concussions on athletes and its current attention by the media, concussions will strangle the NFL out of its Apex position a top the United States Sports World. To big to fail? Not quite one only has to look at Boxing and Horsing racing to see parallels of where football might be in 10-20 years if not sooner....
