War movies should be banned/regulated in America.

I feel that this is an important issue to address with the release of films such as The Interview and, more recently, American Sniper. American Sniper is a film about Iraqi War veteran Chris Kyle, detailing his experiences as the 'Deadliest Marksman in US History. Many are complaining that the film not only is an example of modern propaganda, but that it further sparks a sense of Islamophobia in Americans, and frankly, I think they're right. The first minutes of the movie consists of the m...

Global Warming is mostly natural and a waste of our time and money to stop it

Global Warming has been highly exaggerated. If you understand climate you should realize there are much more aspects to our atmosphere than CO2 caused by humans . CO2 caused by humans make up less than 4 percent of the C02 in our atmosphere yet politicians believe that we are to blame and that we must try to save the planet through some sort of carbon tax which while magically make the climate change. The simple facts are that CO2 is a RESULT of temperature changes NOT a cause. The climate graph...

Does the Bible teach complete Pacifism?

White_Fire
Shrek_sDrecKid

Does the Bible teach that we should never use violence, participate in just war, or defend ourselves? I will be Con, I believe the Bible tells us that there is a righteous use of force that is not considered sin. Only Christians (e.g. Protestant ,Baptist, etc.) who will be basing their arguments off of the King James Bible (KJV) will I debate. Catholics may participate while abiding the rules above. No Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Buddhists, Muslims, or any other religion that does not believe...

Should Immigrants pay a fee percentage, on any money sent out of this country.

Lookingatissues
Beagle_hugs

immigrants have long looked at America as a country where they could come and seek work to better themselves and their families. But for immigrants to only benefit themselves at the expense of the citizens who have to provide benefits to them such as schooling, housing, law enforcement, medical, is a cost that immigrants should contribute to assist in paying for that they take advantage of. There is a cost levied on Americans who wish to live here , shouldn't those who come across our borders al...

Should students be allowed to carry backpacks during school days?

Hawkaye
DasDoughnut22

I feel as though backpacks should be allowed to be carried throughout the school day. This would be an exceptional decision because the backpack has more room than a messenger bag, which many students use, has space to put books, laptops, binders, etc. in. The backpack also helps spread the weight of your materials evenly over your body, which can help reduce the risk of back/shoulder pain....

Should the Bible be used in arguments involving political issues such as gay marriage?

ciel
gryephon

I believe that the Bible should not be used in arguments involving political issues such as gay marriage or the transgender rights movement. The book is a religious icon; politics should be kept separate from religious arguments, as stated by Thomas Jefferson himself when he proposed the "separation of church and state".
