Islam should be banned
Debate Rounds (3)
I have seen my opponent's debates on whether Islam should be banned. I don't think Islam should be banned, but I am curious as to my opponent's reasons for his views. I await my opponent's response, and wish him good luck.
I believe that banning an entire religion is a base infringement on human rights. Freedom of religion is a key part in a democracy. My opponent, in calling for a total ban on Islam, is wanting to control and suppress thoughts. I believe that this makes him only somewhat better than Islamic State, who brutally kill in their attempt to control religious views, or the Soviets, who banned religion entirely.
Furthermore, banning a religion doesn't end it. If I, for some terrible reason, wanted to end Islam, a ban wouldn't be the way to go. Look at the example of the USSR and its satellite states, who banned religion. Yet in all former Eastern Bloc states except the Czech Republic and Estonia, the majority of the population is religious.
I await my opponent's response.
I'd like to thank my opponent for the debate, and I hope that I've changed his mind.
