Read ahead a couple of posts.
Whose is imposing Biblical Philosophy into the culture. It has always been there. The atheists want it out. But it isn't going anywhere.
One of your biggest misconceptions about atheists and religion, is that atheists want religion out of the culture altogether. That's totally bogus....atheists want religion out of the LAW. Freedom from religion doesn't mean religion goes away. It means that religion, and the adherence to religious tenets, is a personal choice, rather than a legal obligation.

But I'm fairly certain that is a deliberate misunderstanding on your part, so that you can advance the idea that 'persecution of the religious by the non-religious' is rampant in our society.

It's crap, but it's your story, and you're determined to stick to it.

The vast majority of abortions are done in the first trimester and are done by vacuuming out the fetus. It's also impossible to torture something that has no consciousness.
There's nothing weak in deciding to keep or terminate a pregnancy. Not all women want to be mothers, or don't want to become mothers at a specific time in their lives. Your judgment of them is irrelevant. BTW--many women who abort go on to have kids later, when the time is right.

You cannot be sure that a embryo/fetus/baby/BillyBob cannot feel pain .. let alone be tortured !! I wouldn't want to take that chance of not only causing them pain but ending their life ..

It does not matter WHAT trimester it is .. abortion is ending a life !! That in iteself is wrong !!

Your posts show your fear of death and your inabiliry to accept life on lifes terms more than anything. Life ends. Death is inevitable. Deal with it.

Nice try dumb ox but the use of "likely" hardly gets you off the hook. In fact your use of it indicates you have a pretty good idea what the content of their prayer was. So yes, it was YOU that raised the issue of prayer content.
You might want to try using a bellows to blow out some of that poop that's deposited between your ears.

So don't ever contemplate, seek, or obtain an abortion. No one is saying you should. No one is saying ANYONE 'should'.

Just that the option remain legal, in case of necessity....and the pregnant woman defines 'necessity' under her own circumstances...no one else gets to do that FOR her.

Not your pregnancy? Not your decision.

This is fascinating!!!! Where did you read this; the National Enquirer??? How about you tell us where was jesus between the approximate ages of 12 and 30????
In Luke 1:30 is says that the angel Gabriel told Mary she had found "favour with god." Is that incorrect?
When you say she "remained without knowledge of man[,]" are you saying Mary and Joseph didn't get their proverbial "grove" on???? Where jesus' siblings conceived of the "holy spirit" also?
What a joke!!!
1) I never said Mary remained a virgin after Jesus was born.
2) Gabriel brainwashed Mary to talk her out of abortion.
3) Had you been following this thread you would have known that I was joking.

Yeowch!
Seems I've gotten on your snarly side...
Okay, my post to you last week regarding your siding with "Sassafrass" and "NR," was a tad one-sided shall we say.
I still stand by it because you're forever complaining that those of us on the PC side allow things to "slide" when posters of our camp are rather obnoxious and most of us don't call them out for being so.
That said, I'm doing no more or less than what you seem to feel perfectly comfortable doing.
Why is it okay for you to take a "simple statement" and turn it into an argument, and if I happen to do the same--in your opinion--it's suddenly "wrong?"
If you're going to ask me precisely which "simple statement" you've turned into an argument, I'm quite sure that "Bitner," "Not a Playa," "Long Night Moon," "CPeter," and others can provide plenty of examples.
Christianity, however "inclusive" should not, does not, trump any or every other "faith."
I realize you believe it's the end-all, be-all, but you refuse to recognize that there are a whole host of people for whom it has little or no meaning.
My statement of fact concerned the very beginnings of the country and how the founders were influenced. That's all. I don't see an argument there as I can find hundreds of speeches and letters that attest to their faith.

Even today Obama will say that he is guided and influenced by his faith. Regardless of the lack of meaning for you, it is still meaningfull to millions and some are political leaders.

I would never say that Christianity trumps anything but for sure I would choose to live in a country where the leaders and lawmakers are believers in Christ. Just a personal opinion when I look around the world.

Yet, here's a law that has stood for 41 years and the only way it has been "amended," so-to-speak, has been by the individual states legislatures that, like in Mississippi, has almost made it impossible for a doctor to perform an abortion. IOW, not by a legitimate grievance, but by the proverbial "sore loser" childish attitude conservatives are notorious for being.
<quoted text>
So, if they had lots of freedom to be kids; is it reasonable to believe they also had lots of choices, as kids? I thought you said kids should have no choices.
I can't keep up with you taking my words and trying to change them into something I did not say at all.

Religious freedom is the freedom to believe as you choose, and to follow the tenets of a religion. That includes the freedom to not believe in any deity, and to not follow the tenets of any religion. I know you don't like that, but it is still the case.

Religious freedom is the right to practice your religion ON YOURSELF.
Religious freedom doesn't give you the right to practice religion on, or against, anyone else.

The new pending law in Arizona, will make it legal without question, for business owners to refuse to sell or provide services to gays and “others” on religious beliefs. In other words, if bigotry is part of the liturgy of your religion, you get to flout the law and violate the civil rights of the 9 million Americans who identify as gay, bisexual, transgender or “other.”

What if “religious conviction” keeps business owners from dealing with “others” such as women, blacks, ethnic minorities, the handicapped and mentally challenged? What about old people, blind people or people of another religion? Would that be OK?

What about civil service and medical jobs? Will your doctors, nurses, and first responders, be legally able to refuse to treat you if they don't agree with your religious beliefs, or the lack of them? Will firefighters be legally exempted from saving your house if they're Muslim, and you're not? How about teachers? Should your kid's math teacher be able to ignore him or her, and 'refuse to do business' with your kid, if he or she doesn't follow your kid's religion, and disagrees with any of its tenets? Or thinks your kid isn't following the tenets of his or her religion?

That's what I'm talking about, re: getting religion out of the law....but of course, you already knew that.

You said freedom from religion. Again are you being forced to follow some religion? If not then you have freedom from religion.

Gov Brewer will veto the law.

You cannot have freedom OF religion without freedom FROM the religion of others.

Creating legislation based on faith is a de facto forcing of that faith on others.

Rioting protesters by doing violence in Ukraine are no democracy, as they have not gone through voting asked all the public and voters in the process.
BY raising all the extreme tearing violences, protesting rioters can only be very serious criminals, but not the democracy representation within the procedure.

US has promoted international disorder and acted wrongly , by promoting and backing the rioters as criminals.
Ukraine rioting is not the democracy by facts and truths.

Whether protesters like to join EU or any others, violent rioting can only be implement against in the judgment, for that is no way of doing to join EU or not.

Protesters are denied and rejected,while the Ukraine parliament as a result must be discredited, by taking advantage the situation instead of acting properly and accordingly within the procedure and system.

US and EU are also being denounced and denied of their acting wrongly with poor views that made the bad case Of Ukraine at the present time.

The democratic elected president of Ukraine has every right right to conduct decision stand by rejecting EU and joining Russia and that is still valid under democratic system and law of rights.

Global recognition of the rights of decision of the stand of Ukraine president by joining Russia and rejecting EU is valid at all time as the democratic elected degree of valid policy and operative views for Ukraine.

Protesting rioters have not been elected to make the decision whether to join EU or not, but they are just criminals to dismantle the democracy (violent rioting is not the democracy), which demonstrates US is out of order and of failure, from Obama making the protesting rioters to have done such large criminal vilolences in Ukraine.
