People think just because we follow the bible, that we're against women's rights. They think that we only think of them as objects used for reproduction. Pro MUST prove that Christians are against women's rights.

Round 1 - Acceptance only
Round 2 - Opening arguments

I accept your challenge in debating that Christianity is against women's rights.

Debate Round No. 1


Some things to keep in mind
- Old Testament/Book of Law -
Used to tell history and how everything was created. This book was used to tell us about things were at the very start of life. Please know that, christians, no longer have to follow anything in this book as it was fulfilled by Christ.

Christians follow the bible. The bible tells the story of humanity, from the beginning of creation to the end times. It also follows the teachings of christ and shows us how he lived a sinless life. Jesus teaches us to do right and pray for the evil. Jesus teaches us to love our neighbor as ourselves meaning we should treat everyone as we wanted to be treated.



My Opening arguments:
- The ten commandments are widely accepted as the founding stone for Christianity's moral code but, has parts of it that depict women as possessions [1].
- Statistically men are less religious than women [2] yet in the church system there is no hierarchical gain for women at all . They cannot become priests cardinals, patriarchs, bishops [3] etc. and are more often than not left to doing things like funding, teaching the children and tidying the church. Yet females are more likely to be faithful to God than males [4].

[1]Exodus 20:17 (I belive - it starts with "You shalt not covert thy neighbours....")
