Although as an American citizen I am (one way or another) going against the 2 amendment. Although Peirs Morgan challenged this topic on his show (and got hated for it); he was a bit extreme on things. See, I don't believe in restricting WHAT gun an American citizen can own.

Communism is Fascistic in Principle

Ameliamk1
Wocambs

The issue of Communism is a divisive one, with a growing number of defenders and sympathizers. One of the most common arguments from that camp is to say that Communism, despite its despotic history, is a free system if implemented "correctly". So here is my contention: by it's very tenants, Communism demands and indeed requires the implementation of either martial law or dictatorship. To accept the Con position, my opponent must support the opposite position. Important Terms: Communism: My...

the catholic church teaches that we r justified by faith and works

the catholic church teaches that we are justified by faith and works It is important to remember that Trent is responding to Marin Luther "saved by faith alone..." so you can expect that they are going to emphasize works. and, they go pretty far in doing so. Here are highlights from Trent, note 24 and 32: Canon 11. If anyone says that men are justified either by the sole imputation of the justice of Christ or by the sole remission of sins, excluding grace and charity which is poured int...

To affirm this resolution I will be connecting various definitions to sh...

Abortion is immoral

Dookieman
Guidestone

This debate will be centered on the moral issue concerning abortion, so do not bring Roe v. Wade or the law into this discussion. It's about the moral issue only. Pro and Con will also not be allowed to argue whether morality is objective or subjective. Because it's not relevant to the topic at hand....
