None of these things is okay.
Humans are being killed while in the womb because mom doesn't want to mothsr them AND is too selfish to put the baby up for adoption.

Over 50 million since RvW in this country alone. NOT okay. Discrimination at its finast.

They just don't know we have been telling them the same thing for years, they just refused to listen and now since Pope Frances is a rock star to them, they listen. Ya wanna know a little secret? The Pope still says abortion is murder and that same sex marriage is wrong.

No, thanks. Been at least 17 years...but I wanted to die, while I had them. I prayed for it, actually.

I think ink was corrected in her assessment of you. But of COURSE you will disagree.
Oh, and call names.
Except I don't spend "endless hours" on here.

Many people on here AREN'T stupid, and I have to be on the computer anyway for some of those hours, for work.

And, aside from the last week, I can't remember the last time I'd been on in the evening. I am living my life.

Of course I disagree with Witless, she's wrong. But it doesn't make me angry. You people simply aren't important enough to make me angry.

<quoted text>If a Jewish person operating a restaurant, if he/she is operating it that would mean, he owns it or manages it, he /she would not have BLT's on the menu. A Baptist couple sure can get married in a Catholic Church, they don't have to have the full wedding rite, just the wedding ceremony and sometimes a Baptist minister can be there along with a priest. Its been done. Lets say you go into a Muslim neighborhood Burger King, there wouldn't be any pork product there.
You know, I don't care about the damned photographers one way or the other. But you keep missing the point.

They are ALREADY SELLING THE PRODUCT. It's not a question of making them offer photography services for weddings, they already do so. Stop comparing it to making a Jewish restaurant offer something EXTRA. It's a stupid comparison.

Exactly, but wholesale discrimination of blacks for two hundred and fifty years does hold a more prominent place in history then anyone else.

1. It is not an "act" that the Pope is trying to "sell" you. He speaks for Christ. Christ is calling us, not the Pope.
2. So you kicked his church(rejected him) because you claim that it brings misery and oppression, yet you seem miserable and oppressed 25 yrs later. You support killing humans as choice and you've been on her for yearsscreaming it. It's legal. Move on. Why are you still here?? Seems like your conscience won't allow you to move o OR be at peace.
1. As far as I'M concerned, sASSy, it IS an act the Pope is trying to sell. Just because YOU believe such nonsense doesn't obligate me to do the same.

2. Yes, I kicked the toxic baggage of the Catholic Church to the curb over 25 years ago, and I still consider that to be one of the best decisions I ever made. Personally, I think you're just pissed off that anyone can cheerfully reject its misogyny and oppression without any "consequences," but thankfully that isn't my problem. It's yours. By the way, I don't have to "explain" why I'm still posting here, to you or anyone else. Don't like my posts? Your solution is simple; don't read them.

Believe whatever nonsense you want, sASSy. It makes no difference to me. As far as I'M concerned, the Catholic Church DOES represent misery and oppression, which is one of the main reasons why I rejected it 25 years ago. I still consider it one of the best decisions I ever made. You seem royally pissed that anyone CAN kick the toxic baggage of Catholicism to the curb, but happily, that's YOUR problem, not mine.

I have seven good reasons to love being what I call Catholicism-Free (CF for short):

1. No constant and tedious preaching about "sin"

2. No long and boring church services and sermons to ruin my Sundays

3. No hassles about the weekly drag known as "confession."

4. Not having to pop out more kids than I wanted because of Catholicism's anti-contraception doctrines

5. Not having to give any of my money to the church's blood-sucking hierarchy by the church-based extortion known as "tithing."

6. No worries about my child being a victim of one of the Catholic Church's vile pedophile priests

7. Freedom to decide for MYSELF on all important personal matters like sex, marriage, and reproduction

Personally, I find it a gross obscenity that a group of male clerics in dresses has the arrogance to believe it has the "right" to rule over millions of women's lives. Luckily for me, I can and DID -- kick all of this toxic church's baggage to the curb so it wouldn't ruin the quality of MY life. I celebrate that decision every day. For me, being Catholicism-Free (CF) ROCKS. It's wonderful how much freedom a woman has when she ISN'T mentally chained to a regressive and oppressive religious institution.

You took your "personal power back"? You had free will all along. I'd like to know who FORCED you to go against your free will. God never forces anyone to love and obey him.
Oh PLEASE. Any woman who seriously believes the nonsense that "it's a sin to use birth control" DOESN'T have the freedom to decide for herself on anything. Not if she wants to remain a "member in good standing" of the Catholic Church, anyway.

You can keep trying to sell this nonsense all you want, sASSy. It's still a church-based CON JOB to me.

Exactly. Of course sASSy's primary objection is that we (prochoicers) are here posting at all. I have no doubt she would prefer that we stop posting here altogether. Too bad for her, it isn't going to happen.:-)

Absolutely Ocean!

Any woman who seriously believes this crap has serious low self esteem issues being she needs to answer to male hierarchy that tells her quite blatantly that she is a SECOND CLASS CITIZEN who is to be submissive, subservient and a brood mare for the male god she worships and the man she might marry.

And we all KNOW that the religious nut cases demand UNSELFISHNESS from WOMEN along with submissive and subservient! They all fit together quite nicely and tidy for men. I am sorry that you are a doormat for male hierarchy. Do you worry yourself to death over spontaneous abortions also? They estimate 500,000 yearly. Now what are you going to do about that? Better get on it!!

Of course she'd prefer that. She'd be able to promote her lies unchallenged that way.

<quoted text>No its not, if a Jew or Muslim sells a pork product, he or she will be going against their belief and therefore sinning and its something the religious Jew or Muslim would not do. A Catholic who practices their faith would never take pictures of a same sex marriage, it would be a mortal sin. If one forces a Catholic to take pictures and threatens to sue the Catholic , that would be religious intolerance.
Yes, it is, because no one is asking the photographers to do something they are not already doing....taking wedding photos. It's not the same thing at all, and so your comparison is ridiculous.
