You just can't think like woman and a mother.
Yet I AM both a woman AND a mother. AND I served in the military.

That has nothing to do with your stupid comments.

You claimed a woman would be "devistated" to have their daughters go to war, suggesting that they're less "devistated" by their sons going. Clearly you think the sons are expendable and the daughters aren't.

Perhaps its because I grew up in a family where women not only went into the military, but FOUGHT in it in Israel. That's the NORM there. It one of the reasons I went into our military, because I wasn't living in Israel as so many of our family was.

Too many people like you have screwed up idea's about this kind of thing. NOBODY want's their child/spouse/bother/sister/par ent to go to war. It happens. Normal - or to use your word - "sane" people deal with it.

Which is why you will never be liberated. You're too tied down to your dogma, and YOUR dogma alone to view the world through real eyes.

When do I ignore you.
You kinda make my whole point -people have different opinions on many things.
So who's right? If we are talking the best tasting coffee? Who really cares either way, if we're talking about serious matters, then we need to make sure we're right.
I can't think of a more serious matter, then if there is a God, and if we have a soul which will live on forever (somewhere)
I'm not against legal abortions, if that's what the majority of our country wants, but it is more like a dirty secret that no one likes to be associated with.
if it was no big deal, then every doctor would be doing it "which is what many on your side have an opinion on -and that opinion is to 'force' all docs to do them on demand.
You cannot legislate morality, becouse the very word morality means different things to different folks.
If the people of the US were able to cast their vote on abortion, I wonder how it would be today.
There are some absolutes, and those absolutes are not negotiable,in Gods eyes.
it all goes back to we cannot and would not be fit for such a standard. We all need a savior.
Some of us have realized this -many refuse to.
You ignored this point earlier today.

No, when it comes to opinion, we don't "need to make sure we're right".

Your religious beliefs are irrelevant to anyone who doesn't share them. So are mine. It's personal.

Every PCer here has been clear that they support choice. There is no "secret" here.

Not one PCer here has ever suggested that doctors should be made to perform elective abortions. Not one. When you have to lie this way, you've already lost the argument, you know.

You're right, you can't legislate morality. However, this statement coming from you contradicts other things you have said. And legislating morality is what the vast majority of anti-choicers are attempting to do in this case.

Given that nearly two-thirds of the country, including some who consider themselves "pro-life" think RvW should be upheld, I'd say it would still be legal if put to the vote. Still, the right to make one's own choice about one's own pregnancy is part of the civil right we all have to privacy, based upon the civil right of all citizens to "life, liberty and property". And that is not up for popular vote. The same reasoning that prevents us from owning a person's body also applies to a woman's uterus. Period.

There may very well be absolutes, but no one on earth knows them. You may have personal absolutes, and act according to them. You don't get to impose them on others. Your right to swing your fist ends at my face.

Your beliefs about what any god may or may not think, and about the need for a savior, is irrelevant to others. No one is obligated to live according to your personal beliefs.

I to used to believe this.
I no longer do.
Where do we draw the line?
just in our laws alone -people in times past would be punished, for things that we are told to accept as normal.
Where will it end?
There are a few who believe in doing things, that even the most liberal of people would find hugely offensive, yet to them it is just how they roll.
They say it is better to drag out into the open what is growling at you, so atleast you know the truth -good or bad.
A person will never be liberated,untill they realize the truth.
Believe it or not. It doesn't change the reality that a moral code is subjective, personal, relative, and not dependent on religion.

If you don't do things you believe are wrong only because of being afraid to offend your God, then you are using religion as a crutch.

Laws change with society. What doesn't change stagnates, and dies, societies just like anything else.

Uh no. I have standards son. You and I would never be friends. You're stuck on stupid, and my friends are always eager to learn new things.
You are the definition of extreme child, and because of that, you're not taken serously. You are the POSTER child for "Dont let this happen to you".
<quoted text>
@@ "ye"? Who the fuck do you think you are son? Suddenly you're Amish or Shakespearian?@@
I judge like everyone else does, by the standards I was raised with and taught to have. My parents were together 54 years, & never screwed around on each other. My grandparents were an arranged marriage that turned into a long love story. My standards are if you're in a monogomous relationship, you end that relationship BEFORE starting a new one. I have never in my life stepped out on anyone I was with, and wouldnt stand for it being done to me.
<quoted text>
Moral standards has nothing to do with who one loves and their sexuality. Not 30-40 years ago, and not now.
Why just go back 30 or 40 years? Go back further and you can find a LOT of wonderful moral standard's gay and lesbians to look up to. Gertrude Stein and Alice B Toklas were an excellent example of a wonderful couple that held very strict moral standards to look up to for young gay women. Leonardo da Vinci. Michelangelo - who was Catholic. Walt Whitman. I looked up to all these people when I was coming out in the late 70's. THen again, I was well educated, unlike you.
Clearly you wouldn't know a decent moral standard if walked up and shook your hand.

If your goal is making a fool of yourself is your goal, you've succeeded.
I love how you speak for all when you say what I say doesn't matter.
Plus the fact that you would Never cheat on a partner. Good for you foo, am glad you come from a long line of goodness.

Maybe God will weigh our good against our bad, but I'm pretty sure He doesn't work like that.

Not cheating on your loved one is very admired, but if you read Hosea, which katie said it made her cry when she read, then you will realize it is talking about how people cheat on God.
That should be what you concern yourself with.
Would you be so bold on that if asked, have you ever "stepped out " on God?

WTF are you babbling about Gtown?

Are YOU going to try to claim that its less devistating for a mother to watch her military son go to war, than it would be for her military daughter? That the son's are more expendible than the daughters, because that's what Inkstain is suggesting with her stupid comment.

Just observing life. Didn't you know anyone who grew up happy and well adjusted comming out of families where the moms and pops knew that stability was good for kids?

Factually, what you say does NOT matter at the end of the day, to anyone BUT you. The people making the decisions being discussed, in THIS forum's case, abortion, are the ONLY one's who opinions matter.
Plus the fact that you would Never cheat on a partner. Good for you foo, am glad you come from a long line of goodness.
Maybe God will weigh our good against our bad, but I'm pretty sure He doesn't work like that.
And I'm pretty sure it does work exactly like that. NOBODY is or ever has been - or ever WILL be 100% good or 100% bad.
Not cheating on your loved one is very admired, but if you read Hosea, which katie said it made her cry when she read, then you will realize it is talking about how people cheat on God.
Nice try at distraction. Epic failure on your part as usual however.
That should be what you concern yourself with.
Actually, its nothing I need to concern myself with, I assure you.
Would you be so bold on that if asked, have you ever "stepped out " on God?
The answer to that is between my Lord and myself. Answering a freak like you on spiritual issues is an exercise in futility. You've proven you have absolutely no respect for any spiritual or religious views other than your own.

Once there was a little girl called clarissa , she was ten years old and age lived in a mental hospital because she killed her mom and dad she got so bad she went to kill at the staff in the hospital so the more government decided that the best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her , as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong and she sat there in agony for hours until she died . Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter , on a Monday night at 12:00 am she creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten others pictures on this one site , and she will haunt someone else who doesn't this isn't fake apperantly if you copy and past this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow u will either get kissed or asked out if you break this chain you will see a little dead girl in your room tonight in 53 mins someone will say I love you or im sorry -I hate chain letters

For me, the glass is half full. For you, apparently, it's half empty.

You may want to consider that the former is because I'm not trying to convince everyone to believe as I do, and the latter is because you apparently need them to in order to validate your own beliefs.

Actually, that's exactly how I grew up.
Not everybody grew up dysfunctional.
Yes Inkstain, EVERYONE had dysfunction in their families. EVERYONE had it to some degree. We simply didn't publicise it the way its made so public today.

You made a patently STUPID comment that what people or kids dealt with was "mostly positive" and that's complete, 100% BULLSHIT. You think there wasn't problems, illness, disease, bullying, abuse in families or communities back 'in the day'?

You're not naive, you're deliberately stupid.
