corporal punishment

audryflaten

Should corporal punishment be be banned or kept in schools, daycares, etc? I am a student and I think that with the way children/teens act in today's society they need to be disciplined in some way shape or form. Give me your opinions, should we bring it back or not? If we have more punishment in schools and daycares just think how much more respect kids would give their parents. I think it should be brought back, and kept ....

Ocra's in Captivity

ParadePerfect
Gas2518

I believe that Orca's should not be in captivity because they are wild animals. Like every animal that is wild. We do not keep them as pets. Orca's get very deadly when held captive. They get frustrated and act out on it by killing or hurting people. If you see them in the wild or free they are friendly and not aggressive, unless hunting or protecting. Otherwise the magnificent creatures are harmless and dossal....

Gay marriage is a sin

Bunny_Butt
Mariodude34500

We all know that it is against God's will for two people of the same gender to get married, it says clear in the holy book the Bible that God wants people of different gender to get married and build a family. I personally do not understand why it should be legal for gay people since it is a sin just to be gay, they should be taught from a very young age that it is NOT okay to be gay or have gay preferences of any kind, children should know that they will end up in hell with eternal pain and suf...
