I've read some AC/PL folks on these threads who I thought were the epitome of self-righteous - like Chooselife and marysaid, but they got nuthin' on this numbnuts. At least their logic was based in Catholicism, which is something. Gtown bases his beliefs on one night, when he says he was saved, and now thinks whatever passing thought that wanders thru his head is inspired by God.
I asked him once if he shared with his physician this "fact" that God came to him when he didn't believe. I think he laughed it off. What can you do? Mr Mary was posting in other threads when Gtown showed up here and for a while I did wonder if they were the same (or related). Am still undecided on this, though.

<quoted text>True story Ocean. Last year Cody, my 15 year old nephew had his first girlfriend. Good christian girl, she was 12 at the time. He posted it on Facebook that he was now in a relationship. His step mom who lives in NY with his bio dad told Cody she would supply the condoms if he needed them!
What is a good christian girl doing having sex at 12?

Civil rights of personal privacy and bodily autonomy apply to smokers as well as pregnant women. You didn't know that? Is your state not having a war on smokers just as other states are having a war on women's reproductive rights? My state, well my county specifically, is waging war against smokers. Damn near the only place one can smoke anymore is in their car. But not if there're kids in it.
You smoke? Eww.

So abortion and smoking are the same ?
Plus who are they?
Are you refering to christians who talk about christ?
Yes, in a legal sense, smoking and abortion are the same. It is what one chooses to do with their body. A personal decision. Nobody else's business.

A smoker smoking around a nonsmoker may endanger that nonsmoker's life. May even give them a death sentence with fatal lung cancer or some other cancer. Do we arrest them for this? Do we charge them with murder? Do you want to criminalize smoking to protect the innocent nonsmokers who didn't ask for fatal cancer?

A woman with an unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy may terminate her pregnancy. Do we arrest her for this? Do we charge her with murder? Do you want to criminalize terminating unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies to protect the innocent ZEFs who didn't ask to conceived or terminated?

One that will be worth its weight on paper does.
Who's in charge? The husband, the wife? Both? The kids?
What if factories had no one in charge?
Same as a home, someone must have the final say, and that choice should be made for the betterment of the family.
It is the only way it will work well, becouse men and women are different -other then physical.
When a husband and wife disagrees on a decision that must be made, then what does one do?
When there is a free for all anywhere, then you have a riot.
I'm sorry, but you are incorrect. A good marriage does not need anyone in charge. I have such a marriage, and my husband and I make decisions together. When we disagree, we hash it out until we reach agreement. It works beautifully. No one said anything about a "free for all". It's not an either/or thing, but I don't suppose an extremist would understand that. There is a middle ground between tyranny and anarchy that you have apparently not considered.

maybe in your eyes sex is wrong. Making sex taboo is a method religion uses to control its followers. Sex is a natural human process and making kids feel guilty about natural feelings is sick.
There is nothing wrong with teenagers exploring their sexuality and leads to mentally healthy adults.
We see what happens when human sexuality is repressed...take what happened in Timbuktu and Mali recently when fundamentalist Muslims tried to enforce Sharia law....
comparing teenagers having sexual relations to teenage drinking is so absurb it doesn't deserve a reply
Sex is a natural, beautiful thing, when two people are married. "Pink one and a blue one ",but to teach kids to go do whatever they like, or if it feels good it must be good is what is truly sick.

You make no distinction between kids and dogs.

When two people come together the two become one flesh, and they are forever linked to that person.

It is up to each person what they choose to do, but to encourage bad behaivor, only renders bad results.

The seperation of church and state was put in place, so we wouldn't have a state rum religion, but christian values are all through our history "starting at this nations beginning.

If you want to teach your kids that they come from wild animals and that thet should feel free to act like one, in your own home then that's your business.

Most christians have been like sto, and that's why our country is getting in the shape it is now.

Apparently in the mind of this little "all or nothing" extremist, if a woman wants to also work outside of the home, it must mean she wants to be the boss of her husband.
Ridiculous, but I feel sorry for his wife. I can't imagine a marriage that is not an equal partnership.
I see his born-again beliefs seem right in line with Christian/Catholic dogma. Next he'll be telling us we women came from Adam's rib and he has God-given dominion over all the animals of the Earth and the fish in the sea blah blah.

That's your personal opinion, but not shared by all.
The reason I asked you about Jesus, is you seem to like pointing out fake christians, and I would like to think, one must know what an original one looked like, in order to spot a fake.
Kinda like a rolex watch.
Your version of "what you think " a real christian looks like, is just that. Your version.
The main problem with it, is the same you have throughout life, and that is when you live acvording to what "you think ".
My "version" came from my parents and grandparents, and so far nobody here is even close to being in their league. They talked the talk AND walked the walk.

No one has said, or implied, that we should teach kids "that they come from wild animals and that thet should feel free to act like one", or to "go do whatever they like".

When you indicate that someone has, and they have not, that IS you "willingly" lying.

Your position is extremist. Again, there is middle ground. There is middle ground between letting kids run wild, and making them feel ashamed of themselves for the very natural feelings they have.

I just bet you're one of those puritanical people who think of masturbation as "self violation", aren't you?

most ac do not assert what you claim they do. so would it be accurate for me to say that "ac do not assert that pro choice is to encourage abortion" ? not if we acknowledge that some may in fact assert that.
your statement clearly implied that all ac assert this.
your analogy sucked.
I ran your sorry ass explanation past those same analogy experts. the consensus rating of your analogy has gone down to 0.3.
I'll dumb it down for you. quit while you're ahead.
