Since pro has not stated her case, I will propose the case.

Gambling is wrong because it's like cheating, stealing and lying.

Cheating= to practice fraud or deceit (dictionary.com)
Stealing=to take, get, or win insidiously, surreptitiously, subtly, or by chance (dictionary.com)
Lying=something intended or serving to convey a false impression; imposture (dictionary.com)

The direct definition for gambling though is;
the act or practice of risking the loss of something important by taking a chance or acting recklessly. (Dictionary.com)

So my question to pro is, why is gambling okay according to my examples and the dictionary's definitions?

This wasn't a very stable debate so voters vote who you see deserves the vote. And if that means no votes at all then that's what we deserve. Pro and I have FF's do to personal situations. Maybe pro and I can redebate on husband make sure no FF's at all. Thank you.

Christianity is the biggest Gamble, we risk our life itself based on faith, and hope to win the ultimate prize of eternal life.

Gambling can't be wrong.......

Round 5's last sentence should say "maybe pro and I can redebate on this topic and make sure no FF's too."

It's quite ironic how the pro side says "no forfeiting" and hasn't been on for two days... And it's the dead of night...

Reasons for voting decision: S/g to pro because of con's multiple errors in the last round. Both sides broke the rules by forfeiting, so neither side gets the conduct point. Arguments to neither side because con never really made the link clear between gambling, lying, cheating, and stealing. Sources to neither side because neither side used necessary sources.
