S.I.N.= Self-Inflicted NONSENSE
As far as I'M concerned, the whole "sin" thing is a ridiculous concept invented by religious clerics to control the masses.
It's one of the many reasons I kicked the toxic baggage of the Catholic Church to the curb over 20 years ago and haven't regretted that decision for a minute.
You just don't want anyone to tell you what you can or can't do. its likely you are a control freak and you control freaks don't make good Christians because being humble is a foreign concept to them.

I bet you are the kind of person who won't take 'no' for an answer, yes?

It wouldn't shock me, its the same ISP as that one.

By "others," I think you mean regressive religionists like yourself. If a husband is also a woman's BOSS, that is extremely oppressive to me, no matter how many times you claim otherwise. In fact, I consider such an arrangement to be the equivalent of marital slavery, which I don't believe is good for any woman.
You can call it "freedom" all you want, pal. I still call such an arrangement OPPRESSION.
I think you have to be more specific as to what defines 'oppression'.

For example, if a husband demands that his wife not wear skin-tight jeans and a skin-tight shirt when she goes to the grocery store, that is a reasonable request because he doesn't want men to hit on his wife. This is not oppression.

Now, if a husband were to install security cameras throughout the inside of his house because he wanted to make sure that his wife had cleaned the house while he was at work, now this would be oppression.

You dont get to say where ANYONE BUT YOU stands with G-d.

Many of us have no use for and dont believe in your version of g-d, so why do you feel a need to cram it down other's throats as if it has any validity?

IF you are such a believer(and I personally dont believe you really are), that's wonderful for you. Relationships with G-d however are very personal and private. Worry about where you stand and let everyone else worry about where THEY stand, because you dont have a clue when it comes to anyone else.

If a "fetus", as you like to call an unborn child, has no rights, explain why if someone kills both a pregnant woman and her unborn child it is considered a DOUBLE homicide?
Fetal Homicide laws (FHLs) exist for one purpose and one purpose only; to protect a woman's right to carry a pregnancy to term, and all that such entails. Any other argument is futile, because it simply isn't true. And you want to know why that is? Look up each and every state's own FHL and you'll find that each and every one of them has an exception from prosecution for doctor who performs a legal abortion.

The intent of the legislature with regard to FHLs was never to confer rights on the unborn, because the legislature cannot act against the constitution and the 14th Amendment states that those who have equal protection under the law are persons, and the very same Amendment defines citizens as "[a]ll persons born [emphasis added] or naturalized in the United States....." So, by process of elimination, persons with rights are born.
bman wrote:
I didn't make this up it's in the lawbooks.
Cite the case, or the statute that explicitly says a fetus has any rights.
bman wrote:
If a fetus is "part" of the woman's body, then why unlike other bodyparts, does it come out and live and breathe on HIS or HER own and become one's self?
Nature's design does not preclude the biological fact that a fetus, while in uteri, is part of the woman's body. If you want to make an argument that a fetus isn't part of a human's body, then explain why it needs an umbilical cord for its very own existence, while in uteri.
bman wrote:
It's the cycle of life my friend, a fetus isn't something to ignore, it's something to care for. By the way slaveowners in the south argued that it was their "constitutional right" to own a slave. Just because something is legal doesn't mean it's always right.
And who says fetuses are being ignored and/or not cared for? You're confusing advocacy for the rights of a woman to make her own decisions regarding her pregnancy with not caring for, or ignoring her unborn. And that's like trying to put a square peg in a round hole.

"Just because something is legal doesn't mean it's always right."

Very true. But that's not my contention. BTW, the opposite is also true; just because something is right, does not mean it's also legal. If it was, then the free practice of religion would preempt any and all prosecution of parents who deny their children medical treatment at a time when medical treatment is NECESSARY. Now, do you believe faith healing is right, or legal, or both? Why?

It seems to me that the abortion doctors wanted an exception from prosecution because they know that what they do amounts to murder.

You're confusing evil with just punishment.

God is both merciful and just.

He always gives people a chance/a certain period of time to turn away from sinful ways, this is His mercy in action. For thousand of years, He sent prophets out among the population to spread the message that they needed to stop sinning or face His just punishment.

I personally believe that us 'Catholic Commandos' are modern-day prophets and God is speaking through us, trying to tell you Pro-Choice people to stop the great sin of abortion.

The time may be coming when God delivers just punishment upon America and our nation will suffer greatly for all the millions of babies that were murdered inside their mother's wombs.

Except it does NOT amount to murder. Abortion has NEVER been considered murder in the history of the United States. I know, its another tough shit moment for you, but its a fact. Never has been, never will be, and nobody that matters really cares what crazy people like yourself think.

How about disbelief? I don't believe in any deities. It's common for religious believers to claim that atheism is a belief. It's not clear why so many assume or insist that atheism must be a belief, though one reason may be that theism is a belief so people assume there is a direct parallel between atheism and theism: if theism is a belief, then atheism must also be a belief. This analogy is not valid; just because theism is a belief doesn't make atheism a belief.
I cannot produce any concrete proof that there is not a deity somewhere. But I don't have to. The ones who believe in some sky daddy are the ones who have to provide some concrete, testable, falsifiable proof of the existence of that deity.
I just wanted to add that b/c there are some religious nuts on this board who will stupidly claim atheism is a belief or a religion.
Some will even cite the first amendment legal case from the 7th circuit: http://www.wnd.com/2005/08/31895/
Of course, the ruling is narrowly construed for the purposes of an atheist inmate who was denied the right to have an atheist study group in prison. Nowhere does the ruling go beyond that inmate's rights when it says atheism is a religion.
The attorney who analyzed that case for the World Nut Daily failed (probably on purpose) to read this part of the decision:
"... whether atheism is a 'religion' for First Amendment purposes is a somewhat different question than whether its adherents believe in a supreme being, or attend regular devotional services, or have a sacred Scripture."
Hey Bobby! Happy New Year bud.

I'm curious; do you disagree that there is a commutative relation to atheism, as the belief in no g-d, as it is the disbelief in G-d?

<<ALL real Jews don't beleive in abortion.>>
Bullpuckey! I was born a Jew.
Judaism does not forbid abortion, but it does not permit abortion on demand. Abortion is only permitted for serious reasons.
Judaism expects every case to be considered on its own merits and the decision to be taken after consultation with a rabbi competent to give advice on such matters.
Strict Judaism permits abortion only in cases where continuing the pregnancy would put the mother's life in serious danger.
In such circumstance (where allowing the pregnancy to continue would kill the mother) Judaism INSISTS that the fetus MUST be aborted, since the mother's life is more important than that of the foetus.
Jewish law is more lenient concerning abortions in the first forty days of pregnancy as it considers the embryo to be of relatively low value during this time.
Abortions because of defects in the fetus or to protect the mental health of the mother are forbidden by some schools of Judaism and permitted by others under differing circumstances.
The argument for allowing such abortions is normally based on the pain that will be caused to the mother if the pregnancy is allowed to continue.
Sanctity of life and abortion
I wonder if dumbdumb would call you a faux atheist, because of your disbelief in G-d, as much as he calls me a faux Jew for my conversion to Judaism.

You're that stupid; aren't you dweeb?

Just because Judaism does not permit abortion on demand, does not mean it forbids it, like you Rambunctious Catholic Commandos do. Judaism believes a man, and woman's free will, is paramount. And it's just that which allows us to make choices, including, but not limited to, termination of pregnancy.

So, for all Judaical practical purposes, prohibition of anything does not equal condemnation of what is prohibited. Your Jeebus spoke against divorce. Yet, how many Catholics have gotten divorced? Does the RCC condemn them for getting divorced? If so, then I renew my contention that the RCC is the most evil religious institution on Earth.

Hello dumbdumb.

Do you know you're violating the 9th Commandment; "[t]how shalt not bear false witness against your neighbor[?]" Exodus 20:16 I suppose you Rambunctious Catholic Commandos are exempt from the 10 commandments; right? Of course; y'all got the Pope to absolve you, and the priests to f*ck your boys.

My contention has always been that Judaism does not condemn abortion. To prohibit something, does not always equal condemning it.

If this is an example of your prayer for 2013 (to bring more people to the "light of christ," you're lost in transit, with no map, or gps, or phone to call for directions tragaleche.
