"many people go there to find there way to god " opponent states .. i am sorry i did not know that god was lost and needed to be found . but in reality your response is invalid just because a lot of people go somewhere does not mean it is for a force of good . example ( the WACO SIEGE ) april 19th ,1993 these people were christians as well trying to find there way to god . answer me this ... did they find there way? . you need to explain to me WHY the catholic church is a force of good i dont care how many people attend

this is the same debate topic yes but as you saw in my response i clearly did not refer to any of the topics stated in the debate of hitchens/widdecombe this is the same topic but with two seperate people obviously just being clear

Its a little obvious you've copied the debate topic used between Ann Widdecombe and Fry/Hitchens.... I hope you don't use the same arguments too. That would hardly be fair.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro forfeiting early is poor conduct, one line bits of nonsense win nothing, though I cannot fault the spelling and grammar for Pro and nobody provided any sources. A one liner is not a good argument!
