Topic
The topic of this debate, as shown in the title, is whether or not religious texts should have influence on US laws. For example, if, say, the Christian Bible said that something was a crime, should the United States make a law against that act because of it? Pro will be arguing that American laws should not be based on religious texts, while Con will be arguing that American laws should be based on religious texts.

Rules
  1. First round is for accepting only.
  2. Second, third, and fourth rounds are for arguments and rebuttals.
  3. Fifth round is for closing arguments.


Thank you in advance to whoever accepts my challenge, and I wish you good luck.

I am negating the resolution "US law shouldn't be based off religious texts." I wish best of luck to my opponent in what I hope will be an interesting debate

A better way to put it would be to say "United States Law Should Be Based on Religious Texts" and then take the Con side - cuts out double negative confusion.
