religion shouldnt be able to vote for or against itself.. like a smoker shouldnt be able to vote for or against cigarettes.. or a child vote for or against there being playgrounds on every corner of every street.. like with churches

Why should religious people get rid of the right to vote. Doesn't your statement contradict the 1st amendment of the freedom of religion. Your support ideas are invalid. You are saying that churches should not vote for religion because kids don't vote for playgrounds. Children are not fully matured people. Their brains are still childish. You are comparing a mature religious person to an immature child. That is wrong. It is the same as comparing juice to a dog. Two different things. If non-smokers are the only ones that vote for or against cigarettes, do you not think that it is unfair? Same with religion. You are basically saying that atheists are the only ones who should vote for or against religion.
And just so you don't forget: The First Amendment guarantees freedoms concerning religion, expression, assembly, and the right to petition.

So you are saying that only Atheists should vote on topics of religion. Isn't that unreasonable.

Define unreasonable.

In addition to that, isn't saying that Religious people not being able to vote basically taking away their rights as citizens of the country. They have the same rights as atheists.You can't just say no, it is going against the constitution.

I had a good time debating with you.

What i am trying to say is that you cannot take away someones rights to vote. What you are saying is that anyone who shares the same view as the topic is not allowed to vote. Doees that mean democrats cant vote for a democratic candidate?

Non-smokers are not reasonable too. They are against it. So there is really no way to be in the middle. Well, its too sad that there are only 3 rounds but thank you and peace out.

>Reported vote: Jaemk9// Mod action: Removed<

6 points to Con (Conduct, Arguments, Sources). Reasons for voting decision: Elijah had better conduct and he knew what he was talking about. He was overall much more serious about his rebuttals

[*Reason for removal*] (1) The voter doesn't explain sources. (2) Conduct was insufficiently explained. The voter is required to do more than simply restate the decision. (3) Arguments are insufficiently explained. The voter is required to specifically assess arguments made by both debaters.

regardless, everyone has a bias. If vi_spex main point is that bias should be thrown out of voting then in that case doesn't the one who votes against smoking have a bias also? you can't get rid of bias. its Everywhere!
