It is not the government's business helping the persecuted churches. It is the jobs of other churches and organizations.

I am accepting this challenge as I am really interested to find out why my opponent feels this way.

Firstly, I would like my opponent to elaborate a bit more on the concept of persecution. Persecution to me is defined according to the normal definition "systematic mistreatment of an individual or group by another individual or group".

To state my position as to why I believe government should protect persecuted churches. Government has multiple definitions depending on the field in which it is been defined i.e. economic, political, social etc. However, one job a government is meant to do is to protect its citizens. This protection must surely encompass protection of persecuted individuals or organizations. After all mistreatment is a behavior/action that is necessarily bad and as such is warranted protection.

I am not sure why my opponent forfeited the round.

As such I extend my argument from round 1.

This could have been an interesting debate. Pity my opponent opened an account and then never bothered to come back.

Oh well better luck next time.

Are these foreign or domestic churches that you are referring to? If this is in reference to churches within America that are being persecuted then I will take up the opposition.

What do you mean by "persecuted churches" exactly ?
