Gay Marriage

Gay Marriage: For or Against As an out gay man myself I find it saddening when people are against me and people in my position being able to marry like any other person. I invite you to to debate why you believe that I should not be able to marry the man I love. In short here are my views surrounding the debate: 1) I believe just because that your religion dictates that it is wrong, that shouldn't mean that you should be imposing those religious beliefs and therefore actions upon those wh...

Religion isn't true but serves a purpose.

TheMarquis
RoyalFlush100

This is not an argument on the validity of any religion. I am starting this on the premise that none of them are true so I am hoping to argue against an Atheist who just thinks we are better off without it as a whole. I feel that it is a good thing for people going through hard times or facing obstacles that seem greater than themselves....

Kozu
Allenn

Full Resolution: The United States ought to decriminalize all victim-less crimes. Freedom to ones own autonomy is possibly the most commonly regarded right one ought to have.Any kind of law that infringes on ones autonomy must be justified. Examples. Laws against murder are justified because murder infringes on another's autonomy. Laws against marijuana are not justified because using marijuana does not infringe on another's autonomy. ==Definitions== Infringe: An act so as to limit...

It's funny how people want to change it as if you could change a definition! LOL! xD...

On another standpoint of judgement for the clothes idea. A man walks into a grocery store he's wearing some khakis a polo shirt and some nice shoes the store manager see's him and thinks the...

Euthanasia YES

Mannahfromheaven

People have a choice to to decide when to die. It's my body so I can decide what to do with it. I should not be prevented from killing myself when I am suffering. I would rather die gracefully than to wither away in front of my loved ones....
