Capital punishment should cater to pedophiles, not just murderers.

Although the death penalty has long sicne been phased out from the Western democracies (excluding some US states and Guatamala) and at least in my country it shows no signs of resurfacing again I believe it should be used when fiscally viable agiasnt serious crimes like pre-meditated murder and, a view that does not seem to be shared by many legislators, child molesters. In addition to be one of the worst criminal demographics to reoffend and to committing actions loathed by every conceivable...

No social issue in America since slavery has ever been so divisive as that of abortion. No issue brings out so much passion and hatred of the other side. Any court decisions related to abortion regularly bring protestors from both sides. Polls show Americans are split almost evenly on the issue. The issue has been recharged under the Bush administration. In Bush's first term, Congress passed a bill making third trimester abortions, or "partial birth abortions", illegal. Many of President Bush's...

While it has taken a back seat to the war in Iraq, the issue of why gay marriage is even an issue at all in this country boggles my mind. Now, I've been to many countries in Europe and most of them (Spain and Holland in particular) are far more progressive minded about gay matrimony than America is. Their entire outlook, for the most part, on sexuality in general is healthy and largely tolerant, which is why I love Europe so much. Some people claim that marriage is rooted exclusively in re...

Grammar, spelling and punctuation should be taken into consideration when voting upon a debate.

If a debater wants to be taken seriously on this site, they should have respect for the voters and use good grammar, proper spelling and punctuation. Sentences that start with lower-case letters tell me that the debater does not wish to be respected, as s/he doesn't have to respect to present their arguments in a respectful and respectable manner. Debate.org has members that know English as their second language. I've noticed that some of these users put users that speak English as a first l...
