The Church is now taking care of the sex scandal, unlike the public schools. You are right, the Church deserves to be chastised for that. But the scandal aside, can't we also praise the good things the Church has done for society? The Vatican never collaborated with Nazi Germany, it was technically neutral, unfortunately, but Pope Pius XII often denounced Hitler. Plus St. Maximilian Kolbe, a franciscan friar, sacrificed himself to save a Jewish man's life during the Holocaust. Tell me about those rapes and abortions on nuns that the Catholic Church was involved in? Where's your proof? How about we talk about the Rabbis who stole millions from charities or the Imams who praise 9/11? Afraid to talk about that because you are an Anti-Catholic bigot? The Vatican created the University system, the Vatican was responsible for research of so many brilliant discoveries throughout our history, the Vatican has done more than you'll ever do in life. When you have humans running things it won't always be perfect because we have free will. Yes Jesus taught us a lot of things that you'll probably never understand because of your intelligence. Do your research before accusing the Church of these conspiracies.
You can defend your toxic religious institution all you want. As far as I'M concerned, there is NOTHING good about the Catholic Church, and I'm very glad I had the freedom to kick all of its toxic baggage to the curb over 25 years ago. I still consider that one of the best decisions I ever made.

Women who aren't mentally shackled to its archaic doctrines regarding sex and contraception, myself included, can decide for OURSELVES whether to be mothers or not, and for those who choose motherhood, how many kids EACH of us wants. We don't have to pop out four, five, six or more kids because the church forbids the use of reliable contraception. It's wonderful how much freedom women have when we AREN'T members of the Catholic Church.

excellent motto to live by. so if you're that hell bent on not becoming one, then refrain from sex completely or use birth control responsibly, even two methods if motherhood is that unwanted. but when you are pregnant, the entity that makes you a mother already exists, is alive, and is developing.
Actually, motherhood is STILL optional when an unwanted pregnancy happens, since EACH woman gets to decide for HERSELF whether or not to continue it. What part of "not your pregnancy, not your decision" is too hard for you to understand?

beyond you? now you're just not being honest. your incessant whining and non stop chattering about how grateful you are for reliable birth control that has enabled you to remian pregnancy free certainly gives the impression that there's a running meter on your headboard that would rival macdonalds in terms of numbers "served".
No, "genius," it gives YOU that idiotic impression, and Inky too, of course. Feel free to keep looking like an idiot.

It looks to me like you're just pissed because I HAVE remained pregnancy-FREE by using reliable contraception to prevent that unwanted event. Too bad.

But not sexual ones, eh?

You forgot to mention them, because you constantly have sex on the brain, you fuzzy - balled old letch.

You obviously don't understand Wicca or any other belief besides your own.

There is no evidence to support the use of "hell" in your religion. The word was never used in the bible and it's original and current meaning, as used by those you would call Vikings,has no link to your fiery realm of eternal torture,

When did the Pope say that? It's my recollection that he said that anyone who does good works goes to heaven, including atheists.

Yet Knut didn't even provide links or anything with her diatribe about you Christians being so persecuted, and with no complaint from you. All we got was her testimonial about being called insulting names while going to church...but you lapped that up, didn't you? You jumped right in to agree with her. I provided links to demonstrate that non-Christians get persecuted and you complain they're not legit.
Do you think atheists don't get persecuted? Is that what you're implying here? Do you think pro-choice people don't get persecuted?
No I don't think they do. Being an atheist or a pro choicer is quite popular. How is either group being persecuted?

I said,
"Okay, so if a woman miscarries on her way to have an abortion, she isn't "guilty"? Would you say God relieved her of the burden of having the induced abortion, but granted her ultimate wish with a natural abortion? "
Of course any challenge you're not up for is "stupid". Par for the course. I never expect an honest answer from you. You might have to think, for a change. Wouldn't want that.
: D
I already answered this days ago. Her intent didn't change therefore, if you believe that abortion is murder than you would still she her as having an evil intent.

I try to answer all of the stupid senarios imagined here.

What rights have YOU had to give up? You aren't allowed to pray? or you aren't allowed to force everyone around you to pray too? Did you bible get confiscated? Do armed militants prevent you from getting into your church for Mass? has your crucifix been forcibly torn from your neck? What have you lost?
A veteran may be sued but the person bringing the suit would probably lose, and he'd have to pay the courts. Does EVERY kid who wears a Jesus shirt get sent home? No. I doubt it. Each school district and each area of the country has it's own standards and rules. A kid in Kansas would probably get sent home for wearing a shirt that promotes atheism or Evolution.
It GOES BOTH WAYS, Ink. You don't seem to want to accept that reality. You want to see yourself as a victim. Go ahead...enjoy.
I am talking about things that are happening and you are talking about only your own opinion which isn't accurate.

Your statement was full of 'probablys and I doubts'. Maybe you should come up with some real evidence.

she throws a monkey wrench into your accusations of intolerance by saying she was ok with other religions being expressed. not good enough. then she responds to your complaints that prayer not take up the entire school day by saying the time for prayer should be limited and you complain that prayer time should be longer. short prayer time is not a christian thing. there are plenty of christian prayer rituals that are lengthy. do you even know what you want or what you are even arguing for, you bigot ?
She's just looking for an argument not a conversation. Her solution to everyone being equal is to take away everyone's individual rights.

Although these liberals would be the first to complain and sue about a May Day procession like we used to have and thoroughly get behind the gay pride parade.

i didn't ask you what the biological definition of pregnancy was, i asked you, other than when it is the result of rape, is pregnancy the direct result of a willful sexual act?
you have yet to answer....honestly.
No, you don't get to badger me into answering with something *you* find acceptable. I answered your initial question with an honest answer. Again, why do you lie?

If you don't know how pregnancy happens or that there are ways to try to prevent it (since it is never 100% preventable) or that sometimes pregnancy happens without penetration (and I don't mean IVF), then I don't know what to tell you. No answer will suffice.

According to fundamentalists, gays should be ashamed of their sexual orientation, therefore kids should be similarly ashamed and the shame is carried from generation to generation. Its their God's desire that it be so. Wow, how sick is that?
Gee I remember when the Catholic children walked through the city streets in a May Day procession to celebrate The Holy Mother Mary. Traffic was closed down and the people stood on the sidewalk to watch. Guess we an't do that anymore.

Saint Francis Xavier Catholic Church (the oldest in my state) is right up the road from me. They have processionals on the streets of this neighborhood regularly....although not usually during times of heavy traffic...but we stand on the sidewalks and watch. We quite enjoy them.

By the way,'May Day' is a pagan holiday, to celebrate fecundity.
We mark the day by dancing naked, wrapping streamers 'round a pole, and singing.

That's a lot of fun too.

There are no "spirits" in wicca, moron. As for your pope, he's just the latest in a long line of idiotic high priests.
