Should Gays Be able to get married?

leyabickell

Before I start can I just say, I support anyone's opinion. I support all religions. Until they use their religion to hurt others, or speak out against someone's religion. If one uses the bible, or any other religious text, to hurt another; they are using the bible wrong. Gay's are humans like you and I, they have their rights. The Pope even says, "if a gay lives a life under god, who am I to judge?" The pope is completely correct. That is my belief, I am a Unitarian. Unitarian= a religion t...

The teaching of "the Laws being done away with" by Catholics & Christians is FALSE

TheWORDisLIFE

The doctrine that "the Laws of God are done away with" is not according to the Scriptures. We are still commanded by God and Christ, to keep all the Laws. Rules of debate:1. Challenger MUST be a Christian or Catholic.2. Challenger MUST use the Bible

atheism is a religion

Okay so you stated in a previous argument about atheism having a god, and worshiping temples, and holy books. I think that you are making up these things to and get your point across. I believe in order to be a good debater you need to step out of your big box of opinion and try to see things with open eyes....

Belief/Faith as a concept, poses a fatal flaw to veracity of Christianity

TruthTrumpsAll
criticalthought

Christianity's biggest weak point for me lays in the fact that it assumes we can make a choice to believe in and have faith in God. But I contend that belief is not a choice: it is a result. We can only take action to reach such a result, but that result is not guaranteed. Perhaps I can clarify what I mean by pointing out another example of a result we see in our experiences. Happiness, is a good example. Despite what we might think, we cannot just decide to be happy. We can only take some actio...

Hello, the first time I opened this debate, it was for a specific opponent, who sadly declined. I would still love to argue the point that Religion has been mainly detrimental to society instead of beneficial. This debate is open to anyone who may want to argue the point that religion is beneficial to society. Thank You in advance to whoever may accept this debate and may the best one win....

Unlike the Bible, The Holy Quran respects women and gives them more rights

Julia5678
Bogcha

My opponent must be a Christian Woman. 1. The Bible convicts women as the original sinners, Eve picking from the forbidden tree "When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable"for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband,"who was with her, and he ate it." (Genesis 3:6) The Quran clarifies both of them were guilty "So he made them fall, through deception. And when they tasted of the tree, their...
