Easter should include presents

stefi.z
Theawesome7

I strongly believe that Easter should include presents due to the fact that we only get chocolate eggs (which only make us fatter), children want something that they can keep, and it's a holiday so children should get presents....

Lady Gaga is a good role model

musicmoilover
Excalibur

Lady Gaga is often criticized because of her unique, ostentatious personality and image, but I think that people should really look up to her and acknowledge the great message that she stands for. She chooses to not succumb to societies standards, and though she could easily be a very normal musician with great music and a society that loves and praises her, she chooses to be controversial and honest and does things to make herself feel good rather than to please other people....

Was God flooding the earth justified

Let me preface this argument by saying that I am an atheist. I was raised to believe in Christianity and I have learned most of the stories that the bible teaches.

HI GUYS! I think gay marriage should be illegal, because that's not what marriage is! Clearly it is between 1 man and 1 woman. That's how it's been for thousands of years. We ought to keep it illegal for the good of society! How could anyone disagree? Do people use logic nowadays or what? Sorry folks, but marriage is and always has been between straight couples. It's funny how people want to change it as if you could change a definition! LOL! xD...
