Homosexual couples can raise children just as well as heterosexual couples.


This debate is based on my opponent's assertion that homosexual couples cannot raise children as well as heterosexual couples. He's agreed to debate me on this topic before; however, due to my work schedule I was unable to participate and had to forfeit. Apparently he has a lot of credible sources to back up his point of view. While I don't care about the automatic loss, I'd like the opportunity for my opponent to defend his beliefs. I'm planning on taking Thursday off, so hopefully that plus th...

This house believes that the death penalty should be abolished


I do not think that the death sentence should continue in the future. The second you realize you've executed an innocent person your mindset may turn from laying in your backyard with an utmost serene mood to realizing you just murdered an innocent person. The criminals also need time to reflect and change their ways, I'm not saying I'm a fan of criminals (in fact criminals irk me a lot) but to not get time to reflect is bizzare. Our system doesn't even give people a chance. What eccentric penal...

Should Guns be banned in the U.S.?


In the U.S. so far, 1.4 million people have died from mass gun attacks. This is more than all the people who have died in all of the U.S. wars, from the fight for independence to the war in Iraq. If we ban guns, it might be true that criminals will think of other ways to attack the population. Yet it would be way harder and the felons will lose a lot of the desire and will to do it. A knife attack might be able to kill two people, yet guns can kill up to forty. The ratio between these two weapon...

Should fighting violently against mental harassment be considered reasonable in the eyes of law?


You know..mental harassment could be just as painful as physical harassment if somebody harasses you mentally(bullies for eg) and there's next to nothing you can do to stop them other than fighting back physically I.e physically harassing them..shouldn't that be considered reasonable in the eyes of law? I mean the judge can decide was it reasonable on person's behalf to be violent against the other person..but shouldn't the law at least give you a chance to explain why you reacted violently...

We are happy to here to debate such a important topic. I believe the "Revolution" is more important than Human right. I want you think about if you are in period of French Revolution. You got starvation, and poverty because of monarch (Louis 16). You don't have any human right. And you want to change government in a flash. And please think "How can I change the government from monarch to democracy?" There is not way to change except the Revolution! There can't be Human right without Revolution....

Debate can be informal. Con may begin with his or her argument in the first round or accept. Any further rules must be discuss...
