Was the pastor correct and was what he told the girl sufficient?
The basic premise is A 29 year old girl is begging for mercy as she is being prepared to be stoned to death for adultery. The pastor tells her she chose to committee adultery with at least a half dozen different men; and now she must accept her punishment and ask for God's forgiveness.
I take the position the pastor was correct in what he told the girl and it was sufficient
There will be four rounds
Participants must stipulate to the following as being factual:
What proof did the pastor have that the young woman committed adultery? Also, was the young woman married? She could not have committed adultery if she was unmarried. Why is the woman being punished for sleeping with the men? Are the men being punished as well?
This system seems incredibly sexist and illogical.
the girl was convicted by a judge and sentenced to death by stoning. The pastor accepts the judgement of the court as correct. The men are not responsible for the girl's conduct. She is being punished for the adultery she committed
my opponent has failed to post arguments in each of the last two rounds and therefore has been disqualified from participation in any future debate I instigate. If someone doesn't care to participate in a particular debate they should have the right not to. But they shouldn't have the right to keep others who may be interested in participating from doing so.
