Homosexual Behavior Is Immoral

RationalTheism
VenomousPen

I wish to thank my opponent for engaging me in this debate. I look forward to a spirited exchange. I will be defending the historic Christian position that homosexual behavior is immoral. Using the same method that Paul employed in Romans 1:26-27, I will argue that homosexuality is wrong because it is unnatural, meaning that it is contrary to the proper functioning of human sexual organs. Additionally, because both myself and my opponent are Christians, I will also make use of Biblical passag...

If the fetus is a human person, then abortion is generally immoral

Trent_H
Grape

Debate DescriptionIn this debate Pro (myself) will argue that abortion is generally immoral because it directly takes the life of a human person who possesses the same basic rights that you and I have. Con will argue that the fetus is a person with said rights, but that abortion is still morally acceptable. I ask that Con only accept the debate in this round and wait to post their opening argument until round two. Round three will consist of rebuttal...

Should computers be used in schools?

sirimarupudi2424

I say schools should have computers because computers take more time than books. You can use a lightweight computer or just use a stationary computer, either would work fine. As long as you can search things very quickly and easily you can do many things with your leftover time....

When the clock goes back an hour, should schools move forward an hour?

Everyday children wake up in the morning, but one day they wake up and its so dark outside! The child is so tired and wants more sleeps and keeps begging but parents keep saying no. Is it time to stop this routine and make schools start forward an hour so that kids can sleep one more hour?...

Should Efforts Be Made Or Increased To Reduce Air Pollution?

Joey888
Firplius

We all need oxygen. Every living thing needs oxygen, except plants, because they need carbon dioxide and release oxygen as a waste product. For people, breathing dirty air will have negative side effects. The question is, what are we doing to make the air cleaner? According to EPA.gov, the Clean Air Act, which was passed in 1970, has "lowered levels of six common pollutants -- particles, ozone, lead, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide -- as well as numerous toxic pollutants." P...

Should People Spend Less Time On Computers And Other Electronic Devices?

Joey888
SJM

Before I start off, I have to admit that this debate is a little ironic. My topic is about using the computer less often, and yet I am using a computer to type this argument. Computers are very useful. They have modernized our world. However, people have been spending too long in front of the computer, and in front of other electronics in fact! According to bgr.com, people spend about 7.4 hours in front of electronics, With...

Should Summer Break Be Ten Weeks Long?

Joey888
SJM

Many people do not like school. I, on the other hand enjoy school. When summer break comes around, I am relieved, but after a few weeks, I get bored and long to go back to school. My point of argument today is if summer break should be shortened from 10 weeks, to perhaps, 8. Many students can benefit from longer school years. Over the course of the school year, there are many breaks, including winter, Thanksgiving, and spring. On top of that, you have several holidays. Two extra weeks wouldn't h...

Welfare Recipients Should Be Subject to Mandatory Birth Control

Illegalcombatant

I would like to debate the idea that welfare recipients should be subject to mandatory preventative birth control (i.e., contraception, not abortion) for the duration of time that they receive benefits. I will be arguing in favor of this position.First round is acceptance, with second and third rounds set for rebuttals, and fourth round is closing arguments with no new points being added.Thank you. :)...
