If you don't think God exists then He doesn't. If you think the world is a chance happening, it is. Whatever floats your boat.
Those theories make no sense to me. To each his own.
Interesting. By your own words, God exists only if one thinks he does. Like Santa Claus. Okay!

UNICEF collects money to help BORN children in catastrophic circumstances. I know anti-choicers don't give a damn About real, born kids, but they aren't out there performing abortions. Kids collecting for them neither know nor care about their abortion policy and the money tbey collect has nothing to do with it.
The propaganda put in the kids' bags, on the other hand, is directly usurping the parents' authority. Would you approve of me handing out slips saying "there is no god"?

Apparently, that would be okay with her, because you know how fair-minded she is. Btw, you know the little Unicef store in Anytown, USA? It displays "pro-abortion" cards next to the hand-painted Christmas cards made by Romanian orphans. Oh, yeah!

<quoted text> I don't care whether you choose to accept the truth or not. See, my friend, because YOU are the one with a hidden agenda, are manipulative, simple-minded, and can't think for yourself, you believe that others must be just like you. Typical reactionary mindset. You don't get it, never will, because you choose to be cozily ignorant. I apologize for trying to treat you like an intelligent adult. Off you go, now, into your fundie cave.
Your emotionally charged responses that included insults and name calling only show me that you don't like to be outted.

Elise,I merely responded to you posts regarding "PL" propanganda during Halloween(which seemed like a problem for you hence,the reason for coming on here and posting it),only to receive a condescending attitude laced with insults and name calling from you when I pointed out that UNICEF has been doing it for DECADES. I remember as a child it being done,being handed out boxes and my kids as well. You defended UNICEF.

You're dishonest and if you wanted to use me as a cover up,then so be it.

No what I meant was that God exists for me regardless of what you think and God doesn't exist for you regardless of what I think. It isn't my job to convince you. So believe what makes you happy.

It's too bad we don't respect each other enough to have this conversation. It would be a good one. Sorry.

WTF? Children collect for UNICEF by choice, and they are also free to get candy. One has nothing to do with the other.

<quoted text>Well,you are very much incorrect when you thought that this..so called.."point" was not intended to degrade wives/mothers/homemakers. Ocean clearly called it enslavement and Leonie also put down being a wife and a mother,referring to it as being a slave. I've had many conversations with Ocean about this.
Are you afraid to admit that we *don't* belong in a kitchen? Is being in the kitchen an insult? Not to me it isn't. We all have to eat. Cooking is a necessity and a passion to some. Even an art. Chefs cook for a living,which serves people.
We have children but somehow think that we *shouldn't* be the ones raising them? Is being home with our children an insult? Is it enslavement? are some ABOVE the task?
We call chefs and childcare owners/workers "educated professional" but cooking and taking care of our families with the "mother" title is the bottom of the barrel,slave masters job. LOL WOW!
Question: WHY isn't or shouldn't it be our "SOLE PURPOSE IN LIFE" as how you stated it in such a derogatory fashion?
Wow...you did quite a thorough job bastardizing my entire post.

Put down the hatchet and try comprehending what I was actually saying.

We're talking about people who lived over 2000 years ago, so we don't know what they were really experiencing, only how they perceived things at that time.

There are some inconsistancies but you never take into account who said what and whom they were saying it. The speakers covered a long time and different peoples. What Isiah would say to the Jews would be very different than what Paul would say to the gentiles.
Also you expect the bible to be easily translated into English. Some English words weren't found in Aramaic, Hebrew, Greek or Latin which would also account for discrepencies.
"Bring up anything you like as long as it is factual."

Whoa! I can't believe you wrote this, Ink

You are saying that wives and mothers are breeding stock and glorified maids. What do you do in life that is more important than raising great children?
"The flip side is people who say ignorant things..."

My remark went with this previous statement.

Are women who have never had kids just a waste of space in this world? Are they useless or something?

<quoted text> These women don't realize how they are their own worst enemies. They have no pride in their feminity. They rely on others,who have twisted versions,to set standards for them. Instead of being proud and secure,they choose to attack their very own(womanhood). Who are they punishing? themselves,their children? Who are they pleasing? Nobody.
I wish women would empower themselves by standing up for their feminity instead of degrading it. The proabort women feel empowered by killing or having the choice to kill their offsprings. How tragic.
Not even close.

We're no angrier than you...and we're not ashamed of BEING angry, either.

Although you SCPL certainly take it amiss that we dare to get angry...acting as if women aren't supposed to feel anger over our autonomy, our motives, and our right to defend ourselves against unwanted pregnancies, questioned...impugned...and chipped away bit by bit. Or about being more or less told that we aren't trusted to make the best choices for our individual circumstances, and the government's going to take over that role, regardless of our feelings about it.

If men were told they'd be required by law to impregnate someone every time they had sex, they'd be pretty frigging angry about it too.

Just sayin.
