No, you are wrong. Sorry, but you are wrong. There are times and places to promote good things. Church is not there to promote all of them. Church is there to promote faith in God.
Eating your green vegetables and your fruits is good too, but I don't go to church to hear about that.
Your church spent a lot of time effort and money on prop 8. Now keep running from this point. We see you running and we see your priorities.
Urging contraception should be a priority.
And looking at the numbers of obese people in churches, maybe they should teach a bit about eating more vegetables and less bread.

Susan Komen foundation: does marvelously good things for people. No mention of contraceptives.
Jerry's telethon and the MDA: fabulous good things for disabled people. No mention of contraceptives.
Leap Frog, the Wiggles, Barney: promote early education and child development. No mention of contraceptives.
DARE program: major advancement in the 80's to educate the dangers of drugs to kids. No mention of contraceptives.
LDS Church: one of the largest behind the scenes contributors to disaster relief and poverty. Brings people closer to Jesus Christ. Makes a strong promotion of abstinence from sex outside the bonds of marriage. Made a stance that contraceptives are appropriate until ready to have children.
Your argument fails
If your church is worries about abortions, I would think it would be proactive with contraceptive teaching.
Your excuses are getting more and more irrelevant.

Your statement was apparently missing a word or two. Read it again. You said:
Contraceptives are a path to unwanted pregnancies.
Are you sure you didn't mean: contraceptives are a path to PREVENT unwanted pregnancies?
Hence my confusion. Your sentence is opposite of the point you have been making.
I agree that contraceptives PREVENT unwanted pregnancies, but that isn't what you said.
So you agree that contraception is a path to slowing unwanted pregnancies? Great, now quit wasting time and effort complaining about my mistake in writing and promote what is good to slow unwanted pregnancies. If abortions are the result of unwanted pregnancies, this should be the logical conclusion. Yet you have a variety of excuses for you and your church to leave it off the priority list.

Our school was founded on beliefs of the bible. Schools began in churches. How could it be wrong to teach morals? To me, it's unconstitutional to not teach what our founding fathers believed so much in.
Not everyone is the same religion or believes in religions. Religion shouldn't be in public schools, period. No one should be forced to practice or believe in someone they don't believe in or don't want to believe in.

You don't WANT the Truth about anything, as it

Of course I would not doubt you have seen an unidentified flying object, but if you claimed that UFO was an alien spececraft, I'd ask for verifiable and demonstrable evidence.

This is just gold, you just accused me of something that no one on here who knows me even a little would try to accuse me of, because I have already told a "I was visited by aliens" deluded one the same thing I am telling you now:

You made it all up. It's all in your head just because you are too lazy to actually study anything about reality. There has been no evidence supporting your religion, your religion is myth because of that. Have fun with your imaginary friend you call god, try to ask him for a brain.

So you say that everyone with a KY address is me? Paranoid much? So I guess on that basis I can assume everyone with a hidden address are all the same people too!
No, I think that you're probably the only idiot within 20 miles of Pikeville that would come on here and type in the same manner, gargling the privates of the same people, and generally being a moron. Coolest thing about it is that you can't prove me wrong. You've already established, under your current name, that you are neither agnostic nor atheist. That doesn't leave much room for me to be wrong about my previous statements. Unless you're Buddhist or something. You can lie and tell me something like that, if you wish.

Not only does contraceptions (i.e. condoms) prevent unwanted pregnancies, it also prevents getting some kind of disease Ajax or clorox won't wash off! If for nothing else, shouldn't we all practice safe sex just on that point alone. Why bring a religious aspect into the mix. I have children; as most baby boomers and older generations do, I will encourage them to be safe and practice safe sex because in my opinion the other (don't have sex till after your married) is just unrealistic in this day and age! Although I encourage the ladder, I don't expect them to listen.

Do me a favor. Before you post, paste your text on this website:
http://www.grammarly.com/...
It will tell you where your grammar is wrong. You do not understand where to put commas and it drives me insane.
Regarding the god stuff, I don't care. We put people on the god-damned Moon. We got rid of polio and smallpox. We cracked the genetic code. We didn't do any of it with Bibles.
Yes,all great achievements Scientific Achievements
And how was that accomplished?
Guided by our limited Intelligence,man was able to device,design and enact plans that accomplished those goals.
They were not coincidences and can be naturally explained.
Compare that to Science and Evolution's foolish attempts to explain the creation of the Universe and life as we know it by describing these events as having been caused by a series of unwitnesssed, unexplainable coincidences that may have taken place billions of years ago ,guided by nonintelligent and nonliving matter .

And all this,in a futile effort to deny God's existence.
And we know why they are unwilling to explore any possibility that points to God's existence.
God is alive and well and will continue to exist forever,regardless of how many people deny his existence.

Wishful thinking has lead Scientists Evolutionists and Atheists to reach some obviously foolish conclusions...
Your wisdom has failed you

When I say teach, I really mean urge, as most know something about contraceptives.
Quote from an actual conversation of females discussing "personal responsibility" and contraception. You might find the first line of this one as "stupifying" as I did.

Female 1: but "I" used contraception, t(HE) condom just bwoke.

Female 2: Um okay...while nodding quietly, while scientifically thinking about assuming actual PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for such-

.o0..Ummmm...really...well golly gee...whoDUH ever thunk such a thing.

Why SOME might appreciate the LOGIC of REAL "personal responsibility" of personal coverage in 99 percent effectiveness, in COMBINATION with ADDED coverage of disease control.

Then you should realize condoms are NOT all that of an effective means of of birth control and should have No issue in promoting that standard of PERSONAL accountability AND responsibility-- for BOTH genders-NOT just one!!!

I did not say it was 100% fool-proof. The majority of people who put the condom on in the correct manner do not experience "bursting or breakage". My point is; it's better than having no protection and risking such diseases.

For your second point, I said I encourage NO SEX UNTIL AFTER MARRIAGE, what part of that did you not understand? But I'm not going to pretend to be stupid in thinking that they will marry as a virgin! It is my responsibility as a parent to teach them SEX ED 101. for both genders!

Well apparently you do have doubts my friend or why else would you be on here even talking and naming someone whom you say doesn't even exist! I do believe you believe He exist or else you really wouldn't even want to debate it. You wouldn't even be on here if you weren't curious and that's the real truth!
