• This is a political forum that is non-biased/non-partisan and treats every person's position on topics equally. This debate forum is not aligned to any political party. In today's politics, many ideas are split between and even within all the political parties. Often we find ourselves agreeing on one platform but some topics break our mold. We are here to discuss them in a civil political debate. If this is your first visit to our political forums, be sure to check out the RULES.

    Global Warming

    Apparently, the true test of science is not empirical evidence, but rather political correctness.

    Are you Christophobic?

    Many Christians profess to be deeply religious, but few are truly spiritual persons. How many practice what they profess? - How many really live in imitation of the life of Christ? Far too many so-called “good Christians” make a mockery of religion; they are the "ranters" (pious frauds), like...

    What's wrong with alcohol

    There are those who have sought escape from life’s cares in drink and found a prison in a bottle; while others have looked for answers to their problems in their cups but come up empty; and still others have used the god’s nectar to numb the pain of life’s disappointments only to have them...

    Things that contributed to Bush's Hard Presidency

    Most important things in life depend on making the right choices. To do so requires sound judgment, for which neither intellect nor study may suffice; and, whenever in doubt, one need have resort to good advice. It is even the more so in politics, for it is not always a question of “right” or...

    So,what do you suggest we do? - Buy warmer clothes? Do you really think that anyone responsible to government will do anything?

    Are you Christophobic?

    There we go - everything will be flushed down the toilet - we won't need to think about it.

    Are you Christophobic?

    Christ, if he existed at all, was an unworldly philosopher; and no attribution of ours could add or detract from the simple truth of his teachings; and, if he was not of this world, it does not lessen his stature in the pantheon of the world’s mythology. More importantly, it is the message -...

    Are you a Democrat, Republican, or something else?

    I subscribe to the Whig Party Platform as adopted by the Convention of 1852 (except for Article Eighth, which has been superceded by the Thirteenth Amendment). The last person elected President from the Whig Party was General Zachary Taylor. (Millard Filmore, who succeeded him in office on his...

    Population Decline

    We are living in a Malthusian nightmare; but there seems little that the world can (or will) do about it. Charles Darwin held out hope that man would evolve into a more perfect species, but feared that he was already doomed to self-destruction before getting there. Certainly, we are no better...

    Freedom of Religion? or freedom FROM Religion?

    It is said that politics makes for strange bedfellows. Need must it be so, for there are no more queer ones than religion and politics.

    Same-sex "marriage"

    Loving v. Virginia was decided under Fourteenth Amendment, which acts as a limitation on state action. The decision does not hold that a person has an express federal right under the Constitution to be married; nor may the Fourteenth Amendment be applied to expand federal jurisdiction where it...

    The radical rightwing's real reason for opposing gay marriage

    The “slippery slope” argument is not a valid way of positing the debate for reason that (1) it begs the question, and (2) mischaracterizes the issue. To say that the sanctioning of same-sex unions is the start down the slippery slope to the loss of sanctity of marriage and immorality, petitio...

    The radical rightwing's real reason for opposing gay marriage

    Marriage is generally defined as a contract between a man and a woman - although some state laws use the term “persons capable of contracting” (or similar language), that would exclude minors and incompetents, but not necessarily persons of the same sex - and the state, which acknowledges its...

    The radical rightwing's real reason for opposing gay marriage

    No. The right once conferred (viz., the freedom to marry, or not to marry) cannot be "infringed by the State" under the Fourteenth Amendment. See Loving v. Virginia 388 U.S. 1, 12 (1967).

    The radical rightwing's real reason for opposing gay marriage

    Rights exist only to the extent conferred by law; and when it comes to marital rights, they are defined by state (and not federal) law.

    Same-sex "marriage"

    Many federal statutes incorporate state law relating to marriage, which would include how marriage is defined. For example, some states recognize "common-law" marriage, while other states do not; and a couple who would be treated as "married" in Texas, would be treated as "unmarried"...
