Right to believe.

Right of the people to be treated the way as system they believe. There's a people who believe a different policy, which is religion policy. why they believe in this kind of policy? because the state policy is universal and some of the state policy different than religion policy, as a democratic liberal country, they must respect them. Democratic libreal country had fight for the minority rights, so why not approving this?.

There ought to be no laws in favor or against any religious establishments. If people are treated in the court system as their religion sees fit, then they may not get what they properly deserve. For starters, what is a religion? It is belief system, which involves a dogma, rules, and holy texts. Whose to say one can not make up a religion, and have any sort of punishment work in your favor? No one should have the right to deny you to your religious views, no matter how 'silly' they may seem. Everything in the court (besides swearing on the bible) is done absent of religion, because one should not be treated differently due to their religious beliefs.

the reality, there's still big amount of people who believe in their own religion. They breath, eat, drink and doing everything with religious guidelines, so religion is important for them, and of course because it is important, they want to follow the guidelines as good as possible, which in this case law. In Islam there's law named qisas, many of moslem want to adopt this kind of law because of their faith and law, they believe god wont be wrong. These group will be disrespected if the goverment doesnt recognize it. I belive we are the same as human but in religion we arent the same

If religion is important enough for them to live by, and people think that using that as a form of punishment or as a form of justice, then they should go find a group of people that agree with them and live by that lifestyle somewhere else. America, or any western civilization should never give someone any more or less rights depending on their beliefs. Also, this debate can turn in to one that is self contradicting because what if establishing a religious court goes against someone else's religion? Then you have done something against a religion, and you are not being fair. Being secular is the most just way to handle situations in the United States.
Voters please take in to consideration that my opponent has never said any thing convincing, and that my opponent skipped a round during this debate. Thank you

Recognize it, yes. Listen to it, no. The Muslims in Britain make me laugh. People voluntarily follow the rulings of the Sharia court XD. Religious courts are a Muslim and Jewish phenomenon, and hardly a christian one.

This is an interesting argument but one that cannot be held in a secular state. No western courts-or any courts-should be based on religion. Oh, you stoned that man to death. Yeah, but it's cool my bible says I can! I also sold my daughter, for a good price, and am going to kill you for that poly blend you're wearing.

So, are saying you that state is wrong in universe policy or that people denied their democratic right to be represented their religious freedom?
