RJs, reply with your judgements please:
@qallout *whistles Jeopardy theme*
@citizenthom lol :-) remixed with America's Got Talent beatbox style
Great job, guys! Let me know if I can answer any questions/clarify my assessment.
Because I only have four seconds left, to address a couple specific new points:-People do claim certain sex practices as part of their religions.-Never said faith had to be in the "supernatural."I had plenty of time to address the rest. Thanks for the debate!
@citizenthom I was using it as an example. Anything can be claimed as "spiritual".
@american_renegade Not disputing that, just addressing one specific new point. I'll leave it to the voters to decide the weight of your point.
@citizenthom Thank you, again, for the debate. I'm glad that we stuck to the issues
In regards to the church/sex club, there is a very similar case in my hometown of Nashville. Perhaps this is what pro is making reference to? https://patch.com/tennessee/east-nashville/nashville-sex-club-masquerading-church-under-fire-again
@behind_the_veil_of_ignorance you're right. Nashville. Mea Culpa.
Good job gents. @citizenthom I must give you kudos, you laid out a very compelling line of reasoning in regards to free exercise of religion that I found myself agreeing with, even as a secularist. I think your point about a mosque having to declare its donors after 9/11 to be a particular poignant one. @american_renegade I'm glad that you finally were able to get a debate. I think your egalitarian argument was pretty strong. Once again, great, enjoyable tournament debate. I hope to see more of you here @american_renegade
@behind_the_veil_of_ignorance Thank you very much!
Hilarious Churchill analogy , @american_renegade Good job both of you on this debate
@drsteve Thanks! My execution was a bit off (sorry, first time in the hot seat). I always tend to think of that when it comes to situations of binary categories versus degrees within a category, i.e. a philosophical dimmer-switch doesn't violate the Law of Excluded Middle, it only deals with a degree of an "is".
@american_renegade Great First debate. I loved the tie. I think you have a bright future on QallOut.@citizenthom you continue to be my favorite Debater to watch.
@genuine_504 thank you!
Congratulations! Sorry for not knowing, but is the winner determined by plurality or absolute majority?
@american_renegade the user with the highest number of votes after 3 days, and there's a one day dispute period afterwards where either user can request 3 Resident Judges to make the final call
@yaz I mean, if there's the option, are we still in the dispute period? If so, may I please invoke that right?
@american_renegade yes,Just a few hrs away actually.. we will call in the RJs
@citizenthom Congratulations on your victory!
@american_renegade Thank you, and best of luck in future debates.
