<quoted text> Explain it all to me Paco. I'm listening. How does Obamacare give carte blanche access to the IRS to an individual's medical records (involving treatment and diagnoses)? I'll wait. woof
Insurance rates give up confidential information on risk, do they not? And will the IRS be looking at rates? You betcha. And will they look for confirmation from medical records? Sure looks like it considering who is now running things. Are you really that much of a lip locked Obama tool?
<quoted text>Your "president" doesn't think so, and your attorney general does nothing but say, "I didn't know," over and over again,
Most presidents don't think much of privacy. Your "president" GW didn't think much of it either.
But making sure private medical issues and decisions remain pregnant includes abortion. The government has no right to dictate those decisions. If you want government to remain out of US citizens' medical records, then I say that goes for ALL medical events.
<quoted text> Interesting. Enzyte Bob says he is a Christian, yet he supports abortion. So are you saying Enzyte Bob cannot be a Christian? Last time I checked, anyone who repents and commits themselves to Jesus Christ is a Christian. Also last time I checked, you aren't god and don't have any right or invitation to speak for god and say who and who isn't a Christian. I believe only god has the right to judge that. Blasphemous. But I'm more interested to know if you consider Enzyte a Christian.
No. Your definition of "Christian" is wrong. One who is baptized into the faith is a "Christian." All sects will perform that differently under different criteria. Catholics are baptized soon after birth. In the Catholic Church, you remain Catholic, hence Christian, for life, even if ex-communicate.
Enzyte? He's a fool many times, but yes, a Catholic/Christian if he were baptized.

I'm sure that's your definition of a Christian. That's the problem with you people. You're so keen on creating boundaries and definitions that you fail to see the bigger picture of your belief system.
Baptism is a symbolic gesture. Everyone who was baptized in the New Testament was baptized AFTER they committed themselves to god and Jesus.
As for being a Christian for life if one were baptized, no. A Christian is someone who believes Jesus Christ is the messiah. If a person does not believe that, regardless of whether or not some holy water was poured over their head, they are not a Christian.
<quoted text> Bada bing, bada boom, I have a weeeeeeeeeeeeener!!! You are quoting a fundamental Baptist website. They're typically fairly intolerant of Catholics. http://bible-truth.org/FAQ-Catholicism.html , read where it claims we are pagans. Bigger picture of my belief systems? Do tell what you mean by this. All religions practically can be viewed as a structure within which one guide's his/her life on a spiritual and moral level. Of course, there are boundaries...
Your first sentence is nonsensical and juvenile. I'll ignore it.
Here's yet another website that explores the whole baptism idea. And it's nondenominational, just for your benefit.
Bigger picture of your belief system? If you need me to explain the bigger picture of your so-called devotion to god and Christianity, then you're in big trouble.
The only boundaries that exist in your religion are the boundaries you have created. You can choose to celebrate god and your religion in any way you want. The fact that people (i.e. a church) tries to define how a person gives himself over to god is telling. To try and assert that someone is less committed to god or Christianity because he or she doesn't go to this church or that church, doesn't go to confession, doesn't take communion, doesn't go to church three times a week, etc. is ridiculous. If those are activities you feel makes you closer to your god, great. But you shouldn't try to define it for others and say someone else is less of a Christian than you or that only your church is the right church.
