Gay marriage should be illegal.


1. It Is Not Marriage Calling something marriage does not make it marriage. Marriage has always been a covenant between a man and a woman which is by its nature ordered toward the procreation and education of children and the unity and well being of the spouses. The promoters of same-sex "marriage" propose something entirely different. They propose the union between two men or two women. This denies the self-evident biological, physiological, and psychological differences between men and w...

Farming animals should be illegal


I am for animal farming being illegal purely because of the detrimental environmental effects. It is the largest contributor towards global warming and environmental companies aren't doing anything about it. Due to animal agriculture, by 2050, Co2 emissions will have increased by 80%. It's destroying our planet and I can't understand why people are okay with this just because meat is 'tasty'. The amount of water that goes into a making one burger is 6000 litres. Think about how ridiculous the co...

Is marriage (only) about the union of two loving people ?


This interrogation came to me when the issue of same-sex marriage was brought up a few years ago. I would often hear the argument "if two people love each other, why can't they get married ?". This argument proceeds, in my opinion, from a liberal conception of society. But based upon this logic, if love is all that matters when it comes to marriage, can I marry my sister if I claim to be in love with her ? Can I be married to 5 people if I say that I love them ? Can I marry a pencil as well ?...

Homosexual Behavior Is Immoral


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...

Religious Schools Should Be Banned


For Whatever Reason, this debate dropped from the Debates. I am making the argument that Religious Schools Should be Banned. By this I mean that all religious institutions that provide an alternative for public schooling should be illegal. This does not apply to countries where public schooling is not a thing. This is also not an attack on private schools altogether, only on religious schools.Rounds of Debate1) Present Your Position and M...

Minorities are not at a disadvantage in American society.


This is in regards to 3 main categories. 1. Education - Minorities are given every opportunity to pursue their education just as whites are. 2. Policing - Minorities are not unfairly policed, if anything they are under policed. 3. Job Opportunities - Minorities are not denied jobs simply because of the color of their skin or their race. Now this is not to say that such instances don't occur because they do for every race. The point is that it is neither systemic or widespread. My opponen...

Should kids (12 and under) have a cell phone?


Kids should not have a cell phone, because they are traveling into a era that they do not fully understand. They will be immature with it, and not actually use it for any emergencies. Think about it for a second. A maniac/raper is chasing you with a knife. While you are running for your life, do you really have time to call 911. No! Because you are trying to get out of there! Let me give you another situation. You just got into a severe car accident, would you call 911 or home to get help? Well,...
