It's got to be their arrogance. I don't know what else would allow a group of people to actually believe the crap they've been spewing since this happened.
My heart goes out to those parents, to the entire community, who just saw everything they believed in shattered and with no warning.
You believe that sadistic tyrants torturing their victims with colon restriction devices doesn't deserve retribution?

You're a MORON Inkstain. Try actually clicking OFF the outdated picture you linked, to the UPDATED site, and read what it says regarding the "non-religious" part of the pie:

"half of this group considers itself 'theistic' but non-religious.

Meaning that HALF of the 14% would not apply to your comments, and as usual YOU JUST PROVED YOURSELF WRONG because you dont know how to READ and LEARN.

ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!

Humanism doesn't mean an absence of faith - neither does being an agnostic. In fact, the SC declared in Torcaso v. Watkins that secular humanism IS a relgiion in and of itself. So do Catholic fundi's. Your SPECIFIC claim was that athiests outnumber Buddhists, and THATS the claim I'd like to see you prove.

Agnostics, secular humanists etc certainly CAN have faith and believe in a 'higer power' or G-d without believing in a specific religion.

But thank you for once AGAIN showing us how stupid you are TRULY determined to be.

I find it ENDLESSLY amusing when you make a moronic claim, post something you didn't bother to read to back you up, then have what YOU posted make you look like a MORON!

ROFLMAO!

since micarry involves expulsion, what is being miscarried is the products of a pregnancy that has already ended.
thanks for that first link that reminds us all what the medical definition of pregnancy is and why you're totally wrong. a woman carrying a dead fetus is no longer pregnant.
"Pregnancy: The state of carrying a developing embryo or fetus within the female body."
Now take a leap forward and admit to yourself the pregnancy doesn't end until the products of conception are expelled. Which is what Bitner claimed and you denied. It can't end at any other time no matter what you want to be true.

I noticed you didn't address the blighted ovum, a pregnancy without an embryo. If what you say is true, pregnancy ends when the fetus dies, what is ending when it turns out there is no fetus or embryo? What is pregnancy called when all that's in the uterus are the products of conception minus the embryo/fetus?

Both parents have a right to teach their kids their respective views, religious or otherwise. If you read your post dispassionately, it's clear you see him as interfering
in their upbringing as opposed to having an equal say.
My mom was raised by a catholic mother and lutheran father. She attended both churches and then allowed to make her own choice. Kids sift through everything and make their own choices anyway, from what they learn from their parents and everyone else they encounter.

I should have said their girls, I agree. I am not criticizing his belief or lack of. My intent was to show that two diametrically opposed views being taught are confusing to children. That's all.

Protestant and Catholic parents don't believe that dissimilar and don't pose the same problem. They are both Christians.

This is my feeling and I fine if some of you don't agree.

Here is my post about why two strong points of view on religion can be a problem.
I'll tell you where the confusion is. I have a Catholic daughter married to an athiest. She is trying to raise her daughters Catholic and his mocking and scoffing of God is beyond impossible for her and the values she is trying to instill in her girls is being made a joke of. The girls don't know who to believe, Mom or Dad. This isn't a problem in families where parents share the same beliefs and values.
I stand by what I said. I never said anything about him personaly. I never said he didn't have a right to his opinion. I only said the opposite points of view don't mesh and it is hard for the children. I'm sure they will work it through and he will back off or she will raise little atheists.
And once again you make a fool of yourself. THANK you! LOLOL!

Like a missed period, and a missed appointment, a missed miscarriage has not happened.
since miscarriage involves expulsion,

"miscarry [m&#618;s&#712;kær &#618;]
vb -ries,-rying,-ried (intr)
1.(medicine / gynaecology & obstetrics) to expel a fetus prematurely from the womb; "

then yes, a woman carrying a dead unexpelled fetus has had a missed miscarriage. doesn't mean she's still pregnant though.
by definition she is not ( thanks to katie for providing the definition)

Since it has not, the woman is still pregnant.
no she's not
Even the links LynneD gave said so. Deal with it.
no they didn't. that was just your warped interpretation of what her links said. the medical definition of "pregnant" is clear.

damn you're stupid

Yeah, and what if they decided to present an "united front" based on atheism? I'm sure what you really mean is a united Catholic front.
My husband is a Catholic. He grew up going to Catholic schools. He speaks about what he believes when asked, and I speak about what I believe when asked. Both of us acknowledge that nobody ultimately knows anything for sure, that nobody is right or wrong. My husband is not one of those Catholics who thinks his faith is fact or his is the one true religion. My daughters both believe there is a God. No confusion. Neither one of us is trying to trump the other. It sounds to me as if BOTH your daughter and her husband are in the wrong.
Exactly. There doesn't have to be confusion when the parents involved have at least the combined intelligence of a warthog.

Parents can easily avoid confusion by making sure their kids are actually EDUCATED in an unbiased manner regarding religions. It helps if the child(ren) can have religious education as well. My daughter wanted that, and we made sure he had it.

Inkstain and some others seem to think that children are stupid and incapable of forming their own ideas and coming to their own conclusions when properly educated.

We weren't talking about a miscarriage. The conversation was about a MISSED miscarriage, where the fetus does NOT naturally expel. Which MEANS, that the woman is still pregnant. And yes, LynneD's link said the exact same thing.

Ever once in awhile I see a glimmer of decency and sanity in Sassy and I start to think she okay and then she just blows it out of the water.
I don't see anyone glorifying abortion, however, miscarriages happen quite frequently so every z/e/f does not make it to birth.
The Newtown shooting is THE biggest elementary school massacre to happen in the U.S., and these sick fundies use those gunned down children to insult people who simply support people's freedom to make their own personal choice??? Really? And what about the children who survived and witnessed the carnage? What about the parents who are putting their six year olds into graves while their Christmas presents sit under the tree??
And these fundie a-holes use this for insults and abortion comparisons?
These so-called religious Jesus lovers are the "evil" ones. They're sick....Sassy included.
And the even SICKER thing is they foul the name of Jesus AND Christians with their phonier holier than thou bullshit.

No it is always the same compliant. I am sure that when Socrates wrote those words. A few generation later people not much different from you were complaining that the roman Colosseum was proving just as harmful. That the new playhouses that were all the rage later in Europe was the added externals.. Perhaps it was those nasty orchestras that were playing Mozart and Beethoven music. To answer the question neither were respected by society of the day many wanted the music and the instruments to be burned.

Ink, it is the same cry heard then, now, and will be heard as long as the human race endure. With the same excuses from people much like you.
