Pro

I believe that all members of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, should be allowed to take a day off of work or school, on the 19th of September, due to the incredible importance of International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
This day is like the Pasatafarian equivalent to Christmas or Eid. We should also be given the 1st of June off, as this is the birthday of Robert Newton, who portrayed Long John Silver twice, and he is also the patron saint of International Talk Like a Pirate Day.

I accept the challenge and welcome Pro to DDO as I see that he is new.

I am assuming that we are debating that people should be able to take those days off without fear of negative consequences from their employers or schools, as they already can take those days off, they just have to worry about being fired or suspended for cutting work or school.

With that clarifying statement, I'll turn it back over to Pro, so that he can present his argument as to why they should be allowed to take these days off.

I am most interested in his proof for his statement, "the incredible importance of International Talk Like a Pirate Day." And wish for him to explain how "incrediby important" that day is.

Since no evidence or reason was given as to why "talk like a pirate day" should a national holiday. I have nothing to refute.

only voting because Pro forfeited and I'm tired of seeing this always show up as a tie.

I didn't realize the semantic loophole in this...
