Mississippi Officially Abolishes Slavery on February 7, 2013.

Cool ..... and it only took them 148 years to do it. Now if they would catch upon few other things like stop a lot of Mississippi High Schools from banning gays and lesbians at proms. And recognize sex-ed works ..... Mississippi bans full sex-ed in all it's schools. It also has the highest teen pregnancy rate in America. I wonder if there's a correlation between the two? Well, anyway, way to go Mississippi. We're proud of you.

Hi, Mister Bigot.

Throw your racism around somewhere else. Since 2009 teen pregnancy began dropping and is at a historic low. That's nationwide including both white and black teens both in rural areas and large cities. Thank President Obama for this because it was a plan he began at the very beginning of his first term. He did it by changing Government (Federal) policies. The Government stopped funding systems of sex-ed which showed little or no results, which happened to be religious-based, abstinence-only, and abstinence-plus sex-ed. The money and manpower was switched to promoting and funding only full sex-ed. The result is a historic low. Btw, you do know your President is black don't you?

That is, a low except in areas within the bible-belt where religious drumbeaters dominate things. Mississippi being the worst because religious extremists control the politicians in the state legislature. Because of state laws only one abortion clinic exists and full sex-ed is banned. The result is the highest number of pregnant teen girls in the nation.

A side note about southern Baptists. They officially ban women from being preachers. That's religious based, not racial.

I can hear the 12 year old hookers/gangs in Chicago.......

I can't be screwing you all again, Mr obama signed a piece of paper.

Over Lakeshore the cars parked the weed smoked the panties wet and NO! mr obama don't want us to.

Lady the only way anything obama signed stops sex, is death warrants using drones. If you covered it with obama's sex-ed plan there would be about a 2.5" hole punched right through it. You really are 9 years old?

It isn't regulatiing morality. Only the Republican Party and Religious extremists have been attempting to use our Government for that. And yes, I can give examples. Rather than continuing to put money where it was not working, what promoting full sex-ed did was take the realistic approach of doing what had shown 'did work'. Teens are going to have sex. That never has and never will stop. The year with the highest number of teen pregnancy was 1957 (you guys were horny little boogers back then, huh?), not 2012. What full sex-ed does is educate teens about how not to become pregnant. Ignorence causes teen pregnancy. It worked. It's at a history low.

Btw, are you opposing educating teens about sex and pregnancy, or are you only opposing President Obama supporting sex-ed (which btw, his plan showed immediate results)?

Ok, southern Baptists do not "ban" women from being preachers, where did you get your info? I've been to several Southern Baptist churches where women were allowed to be assistant pastors! One of these churches is even in Corbin! It is not an "official" ban at all, rather the local congregation can choose!

Yes, they 'officially' ban us. The Southern Baptist Convention passed a vote and issued a written proclamation in 2000. You must not know the different religions. The Southern Baptist is a different religion than the Baptist. The Southern Baptist religion formed during the Civil War. The Baptist (the regular Baptist religion) do not oppose women preachers, although there isn't many. A woman Baptist preacher even gave a sermon at President Obama's first inauguration. That was awesome. You may be thinking just due to a Baptist church being in the south it's Southern Baptist, it isn't.

Here is their stance.

"While Scripture teaches that a woman's role is not identical to that of men in every respect, and that pastoral leadership is assigned to men, it also teaches that women are equal in value to men."

Kinda candy-coated, but what it says is 'no women preachers'. I think the 'women are equal in value to men' is funny because they teach women should be obedient to husbands. They say it's in scripture.

There's also this put out by the Southern Baptist Convention.

"Southern Baptists have long valued the priceless contribution of women as they have ministered to advance God's Kingdom. The Baptist Faith and Message (BF&M) affirms the vital role of women serving in the church. Yet it recognizes the biblical restriction concerning the office of pastor, saying: "While both men and women are gifted for service in the church, the office of pastor is limited to men as qualified by Scripture." The passages that restrict the office of pastor to men do not negate the essential equality of men and women before God, but rather focus on the assignment of roles."

I was just told the last paragraph of my previous post may be a section of the actual 2000 proclamation.

Here's something separate.

"Neither the The Baptist Faith and Message (BF&M) nor the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) provides any mechanism to trigger automatic expulsion of congregations that adopt practices or theology contrary to the BF&M. However, going against the SBC's official gender protocol, defended on biblical grounds, opens a local Baptist congregation to severe criticism and even further penalties. Some SBC churches that have employed a woman as pastor have been excluded from fellowship and membership in their local associations of Baptist churches."

Have a conversation with a Fundamental Baptist and see what they think. Probably have you stoned for not knowing your place as a woman. All kinds of Baptist.

BTW, Kentucky banned slavery a mere 38 years ago.

You probably have no respect for the Bible or religion but God banned women preachers himself. God's word says women are to keep silent in the church.
