Pro

This is an argument in which an opponent ought to consider the case against secularizing politics and the decisions which are taken within a political framework. The individual need not be of any religious conviction themselves, the only criteria being that they are interested in the topic and do not wish to make a mockery of the whole debate. The structure of the debate shall be as follows

Round 1: Acceptance
Round 2: Argument Set
Round 3: Rebuttal
Round 4: Conclusion

All sources need to be linked into the debate so that external viewers are able to evaluate the quality of the provenance.

Good luck to anyone who wishes to take up the debate.

I happily accept this debate.

To note a few things, the secularization of politics means that no religious parties should be allowed to form, and Scripture should not be used in making law. I will be arguing that there should be freedom of religion entering politics, if the majority wills it.
