Is torture an acceptable tool in the interrogation of terrorists?

 

Please come and join the Phi Kappa Literary Society this Tursday, September 11, at 7 pm in Phi Kappa Hall as we debate whether or not torture is an acceptable tool in the interrogation of terrorists.

President Obama recently came out and said that the U.S. “crossed a line” with the use of torture in the investigations after 9/11. Though he asks us to remember the fear and panic that the government and American people felt after the 9/11 attacks, reports have stated that the use of torture lasted long after 9/11. Where is the line between national security and war crimes? Can torture be morally justified?

Come to the hall this Thursday, and tell us what YOU think.

Is the NRA an obstacle to responsible gun control?

 

Join the members of the Phi Kappa Literary Society this Thursday at 7 pm as we debate whether or not the National Rifle Association, or NRA, is an obstacle to responsible gun control. We have enjoyed an abundance of guests in recent meetings, and we always enjoy hearing your opinions! Come out and let yourself be heard. We love having guests in our hall.

Remember, guests are encouraged, but not required, to speak.

Is Jesus Christ the most influential historical figure?

We know you have opinions, and we want to hear them! Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the foundation for religions that have altered history and spread all over the globe. Can we point to Jesus Christ as the single most influential person in history? You may disagree or have someone else in mind. Maybe you think that the influence attributed to Jesus is misattributed. Whatever your thoughts, come to Phi Kappa Hall this Thursday night at 7 pm and share them with us!

Should prostitution be legalized?

 

The Phi Kappa Literary Society will be holding its first meeting of the semester this Thursday at 7 pm in Phi Kappa Hall. Drop by to give your opinion and affirm or negate the following resolution: BIHR: Prostitution should be legalized. 

Where does the government’s moral duty lie, or do they have one at all? Is legalizing prostitution compassionate or harmful? How much can we rely on other countries who have legalized prostitution to set a precedent for us? Is US culture just not ready for this? Should prostitution be treated like any other service based business, or is buying the use of a person’s body just one step too far? We want to know what you think. Come by Phi Kappa Hall this Thursday for a great debate.
