This is just how god works is the worst answer you could have thought up. It is damning evidence for your beliefs to be false. It is evidence of why the religious are so often bigots. It is just how god works can be the answer for any blind faith and bad morality, but it never is a good answer.

Men and women should not be limited to equal rights, they should also be afforded equal privileges.
That rights versus privileges argument is typical of bigotry and racism. You use all the same language of racists.
Don't mix topics.
That's how God works is the best answer you are getting right now about the priesthood. Yes I could go much deeper into doctrine, but you have shown me you aren't ready to talk about it. I'm not going to give you more fuel to bash things that I hold sacred.

<quoted text>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.
I'm not running from it. We aren't talking about that topic anymore. You seem to think gay marriage and contraceptives are the same topic.

Urging contraception is not relevant to church. The purpose of a church is to teach people about God and His gospel. Abstinence before marriage is God's law. This should be taught from the pulpit. It is the responsibility of the parents to educate their youth about other protection when they succumb to weakness.

And really? You are going to link obesity to churches? I'm sorry but this was the dumbest comment you have made to me. I hope it was just a childish jab and you weren't really serious.

<quoted text>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.
No, you are just wrong about the purpose of a church.
That's like making an argument that Piggly Wigglies should educate people on car maintenance. Without it, they won't be able to make it to their stores.

<quoted text>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.
Your mistake in writing changed the entire meaning of your post.

One final time: sex education should not be taught in church. It should be taught in the home. I would say it should be taught in schools as well, but I've never seen it done well so I didn't see the benefit. If they modify the program, maybe that would be best. Maybe bring a doctor in to teach that day.

What medicine are you talking about? Again I have no experience with having to medically help a pregnancy.

That's what I was trying to find out from you. I disagree that saving a life is playing God.

Hormones are not "vitamins." Almost all pregnancies in the civilized world are assisted medically, as I said, all those tests ... medical assistance, procedures like those to unwrap the umbilical cord from the neck. There are a lot of them, and I don't know the whole list, but that is beside the point, the fact remains, most fetuses would not be born alive without medical assistance.

Unlike many of you, I do not have the spare time to dig through and catch all posts, but yes, saving a person from death at any time is playing god, it is opposing the will of nature or whatever god may be. It is unfair to say that only one group can play god and not the other.

I just don't agree that it is most, but I acknowledge there are many. No one in my family needed anything other than someone to deliver the child.
I do not see the assistance you speak of as playing God. Just as I don't see someone taking medicine to help their body stay healthy as playing God. You mentioned the cord. That doesn't seem any different to me than someone having bypass surgery, a stint, or a heart transplant. To me it isn't playing God.

I believe it is using the knowledge that God gave us, to help others.

So one group is doctors that can help the quality of life for others. Who is the other group? Abortionists that end lives? I hope you can draw that distinction as it is really easy for me to do so.

It's a community service. We are trying to improve our world by eliminating ignorance wherever it exists. And in this place it exists in abundance.

thank you for your reply and good to know... You're not a Physician are ya? lol Because if I am ever in need of my life being saved I damn sure don't want someone who has your point of view over my living or dieing, cause I am an accident waiting to happen and I want to live as long as I can. I cut the main artery in my arm with a chainsaw quite a few years ago; had it not been for that Doc. I would have died. Sure glad he didn't hold your view! Let me ask ya this. Do you have children? If so, If one of your children were "lets say hit by a drunk driver" and your child's life could be saved if the physician attended to them quickly.. would you insist them doing so or say to that Doc..Don't play God?

Most doctors privately revel in the fact that they know they are playing god.

How do you consider saving a life playing God? You do not believe in God so therefore it can't be playing God. The knowledge God has given us to make the advancements in science is why we are able to save people. Now you believe all in "science" but not in "God" so shouldn't you see saving a life as "playing scientist" LMAO

Anything altering the fate of the organism through the use of intelligence is playing god, that is what altering fate is. But that's the thing, how do you know one is and not the other? How do you know that the fate was not for them to die?

Also, it is most. The very fact that medications are taken to eliminate illness in the mother, such as vaccines, is medication that has altered the chances of the fetus not being born alive. Not all ailments that prevent the fetus from living directly effect the fetus.

Um, your god is not the only god in mythology, and the word "god" is an adjective. You are really stupid, you know that, right?

you didn't answer my question:
Now I'm a betting person.(i know, i'm breaking another of them 10 rules) I bet Kitten you will not answer my question, but if you do , be honest. Anyone in their right frame of mind would plead and beg for that old doc. to do everything in his/her power to save their child, if all they needed was an artery stitched up. Now if the child was a complete vegetable and her/his quality of life was nothing but a pump breathing for him/her , the situation changes . In both cases it's what your child wants done, would your child want to live a normal life if all it takes to do so is a stitch or two. Would your child want to live the rest of their life with a pump breathing for them? You as their Power of Attorney makes that decision.

So basically you'd say Don't intercede. Let fate have it's due course!
