The final home stretch! This is the last round before the semi-finals. Should be exciting.

Theme for this round: religion

Topics:
This House believes that countries should make the pope persona non grata outside of the Vatican until it signs extradition treaties with those countries.
This house believes the "Je Suis Charlie" movement did more harm than good.
This house believes churches should not involve themselves in political campaigns.

This one has some of my favorite topics in it :D Remember to get your topic selections in soon. You have a little over 1 day to do so, starting now.

Match-ups (already announced haha):
Wylted negates against FourTrouble on DDO
shabshoral affirms against Zaradi on DDO
Stag vs RXR.

Sorry that this whole process was a bit delayed today, and good luck to all competitors.

My email says that I'm negating against Zaradi - I assume that this thread is more accurate?

Uh ... nope, email's more accurate. Sorry, I probably just copied it wrong. I'll check for you to make double-sure.

My topic rankings would have been the same either way, so that's fine.

FYI, just checked, and Zaradi is indeed affirming.

Sorry. ShabShoral, if you're cool with it, could you negate instead?

I'm not sure what really happened with the aff/neg thing there but to me it told me Zaradi was supposed to negate, and on the email Zaradi was affirming for some unbeknown reason. But Zaradi has more affirming debates than shab so by rights Zaradi should be negating. I think.

That's totally fine. I actually prefer to negate because I hate going first, haha

Urgh, I got that the wrong way round. I meant could you AFFIRM instead. Dammit. Because Zaradi has been affirming too much.
