 Nadir Ahmed v. Doug Beaumont Debate   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Nadir's basic contention is that the Bible does not speak to the moral issues of our day and that therefore the kind of rampant sin Christians speak out against is actually biblically allowed and, according to him, approved.
Nadir, he refused to debate me according to the standard format (where each side presents their case and then rebuts the other side's arguments).
I answered Nadir's arguments with appeals to scriptural word meanings in their context plus the varied sources of morality available to the scripturally knowledgeable Christian and he simply kept responding with his mantra of "the Bible doesn't teach this." Repetition, however, is not an argument.
