Christianity should be Extinct
Debate Rounds (3)
The Bible was the first book ever printed so that is proof that something was going on. By the way all religions are against murder and violent acts, it is the people that are being inhuman but there are no reasons to blame the religion. I am a Greek Orthodox Christian and I believe in God and Jesus and I do not know if they are real or not but that is why I have faith. Basically you are saying that it should be extinct which means destroying the Churches which means destroying the communities which means breaking the hearts of believers and making them feel worthless. Destroying a religion and breaking the hearts of others is a cruel thing to do and that is the last thing the world needs, the world will still be a cruel place without Christianity so there really is no point.
When looking at the history of Christianity I see some good things, such as: charity work, community unity, and giving individual hope. If Christianity had stayed as individual belief that some people could choose to believe without influence then there would be no issues. But in America Christians have their fingers in every aspect of society today. Any political figures are afraid to say publicly they do not believe in God. The supreme court had to rule to keep mandatory prayer out of schools. The only reason homosexual marriage was illegal for so long was Christians imposing their personal beliefs on the laws of the country. My point being that Separation of Church and State has not been at all upheld in America because of Christianity's influence. It has held us back as a nation
Now I'm not saying anyone should takes steps to abolish any religion, people have the right to live how they would like to. My point is that Christians have controlled the nation since its start and now that they are finally losing ground with expelling mandatory prayer from schools, gay marriage, and the extreme regulations on stem cell research they're starting to say they are being a prosecuted in a country where they are the majority. Christianity as a whole has regressed humanity back centuries and separation of church & state should widen more.

Reasons for voting decision: CON's debate premise is that Christianity should be extinct. But it goes off the rails. Though PRO offers rather weak rebuttals, it's people not religion; CON concedes on destroying Christianity would break up communities. On his stance that Christianity does more evil than good; he admits to seeing some good works done. CON's primary issue appears to be Christianity's societal influence as a setback to the nation's progress and the separation of church and state should widen. This is not topical to the debate.
