Debate: Churches ought to pay taxes

Hayd
thett3

Full resolution: Churches ought to pay taxesThe debate is impossible to accept, apply in the comments if you are interested and I will send the challenge to the applicant of my choosing. First round is acceptance only. No new arguments in the final round. Kritiks aren't allowed. Taxes on churches would mean regular property taxes and commercial income taxes. Basically they lose their tax exempt status....

First round is for thett3's arguments. He can use the last round too if he wants, as long as characters are evenly distributed (i.e. he must reserve characters for the final round from R3, just as lawyers must reserve time for rebuttal in appellate arguments)....

This debate is for the Autumn tournament, round one. Resolved: On balance, jury nullification in the United States is just. Some definitions: Jury nullification is defined as the practice of a jury nullifying a law by returning a verdict of not guilty even though they believe that the defendant is guilty because they believe the law to be unjust. On balance: with all facts considered. I will define justice as giving each their due. What exactly is meant by "just" may be a point...

The world is a better place because of Christianity

Draco
thett3

Christianity has been the inspiration for many great things throughout the ages. It has also been the cause of some of the worst tragedies in history. This debate is not about the existence of the Christian God, but if the Christian religion is a positive influence on the world. I will make the point that the bad influences of Christianity far outweigh the good. I challenge an opponent to show me the error in my thoughts on this....

Debate.org should maintain it's policy of deletion

thett3
thehumanistpreacher

Thanks in advance to my opponent for accepting. In the forums, my opponent has contended very strongly that DDO should implement a policy he terms "Free debates" where no debates or threads are deleted. I invite him to defend this proposition. Since my opponent is the one advocating a change in the status quo but I'm the affirmative, the burden of proof will be shared. What a shared burden of proof means is that rather than the judge defaulting to one side, both sides are obliga...
