What is a topic that you've always wanted to see someone else debate, i.e. what would you like to see a really good debate about?

Is giving head perfectly acceptable in a rational society.

Important question: does perfectly modify acceptable or head?

I prefer modifying "head." More arguments to make for that one.

Wouldn't this result in a number of anti-Semitic implications by whomever is proposing it. They might even hurl anti-Semitic insults as well.

It's a popular enough theory and widely believed in many circles. While the theory is mostly used for political purposes, it's not necessarily anti-semetic. Arthur Koestler's book The Thirteenth Tribe, is the main reason for it's popularity today, and Koestler, a Jew himself, did not have an anti-semetic motivation for it (I believe the opposite is true in fact).

As for the theory itself, it doesn't have to contain any political assertions (which by extension could be viewed as anti-semetic to some) at all in the debate. The real substance of the issue relates to genetics, parentage, and regional origins. Any possible anti-semetic implications of the theory are a result of the preconceived notions of those who want to believe it's results (as it pertains to Jewish lineage in Judea/Samaria/Palestine), regardless of whether or not the theory actually is valid. In other words, the Khazar theory gives an intellectual rationalization for those who want to deny any Jewish connection to the region known as Israel/Palestine/Judea. This in itself can be construed as anti-semetic, but the theory itself shouldn't be viewed as intrinsically for this purpose. Regardless, most of those who accept it often seem to for the politically stated purposes mentioned. This though, isn't necessarily anti-semetic.

Not being dumb on purpose, but making it appear otherwise.

That doesn't make any sense in the context Imabench used it...

On topic - I'm interested in a rational discourse on the legacy of the Pope. A good debate by two Christians would be captivating.
