Well when you talk about cake making and pictures, we are talking about American civil rights. Isn't that the truth?
Then by all means show where gays have been discriminated on the same par as other pursecutions.
You could start with the two hundred non Muslims shot and bombed in Kenya yesterday or the sixty Christian women and children killed leaving church in Pakistan.
The discussion never was just about cake and pictures, Witless.

Your question wasn't about numbers, but the possibility. I DID provide those links. You ignored them.

You're taking a very narrow view of this issue. Is that the ONLY discrimination gay people face these days? What about the gay boy (man) who was beaten and dragged to his death and hung on some fence? He was one example of individuals being murdered for being gay. How many do you think we don't find out about? What about the lesbian women who have been gang raped just because they are gay?
I think you're more concerned and empathetic about crimes against people for religious reasons rather than non-religious hate crimes. According to your religion being gay is a sin anyway so why feel anything for those people, right? But if someone is victimized because of their religion then it's a huge deal. In that case I think the Jews get the top prize. How can you compare the number of deaths perpetrated in the Holocaust to a mere 200 mall deaths? I mean, that seems to be your logic on this issue.
Gays became more open in recent years so they became the target du jour. Muslims were behind 9/11 so it became fashionable to hate on them. Tomorrow? Who know who will be next..
www.civilrights.org
"Of all hate crimes reported in 2007, the proportion committed against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals rose to 16.6 percent..."
Are we changing the conversation to genocide now? If so, yes the Jews were killed in the millions in Germany. Did you know that North Korea has killed millions and still does today, mostly half chinese babies.

I showed you the posts. They were about businesses being forced to accommodate gay couples getting married with pictures and cake to protect the civil rights of homosexuals.

We were not talking about genocide.

I didn't say the conversation as a whole didn't INCLUDE cake and photos, Witless. I said it was never JUST ABOUT THEM.

In the question that I first responded to in this particular conversation, even YOU didn't mention cake and pictures, Moron.

Not talking about genocide? You mean killing? Okay, then why did you bring up killing?

Why did you ask how many gays face the possibility of "death at someone's whim" like embryos/fetuses do?

You asked about possibilities.

I posted the links, and you ignored them.

Here is your answer again. ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of "gays" face the possibility of "death at someone's whim". You can't say the same about embryos/fetuses.

One minute you want to solely focus on the US. Another minute you want to bring other countries into the picture. Regardless of whatever country we're talking about, gays continue to face a lot of discrimination and you continue to turn a blind eye.

Here's an equation for you...Your God created everything (according to your dogma), so your God created rats and parasites, and then your God's rats and parasites spread your God's Black Death, so your God was responsible for killing off an entire 3rd of Western Europe, so your God wiped out 20 million people.
And then that wasn't enough to satisfy your God's bloodlust so he wiped out 50 million people in 1918 via the Spanish flu.
Your God is the most prolific mass murderer in history so why continue to be a hypocrite and bitch about abortion? If your God gave a shit in the first place he wouldn't allow a conception that will end in miscarriage...ya dumbastard.
Are you undre the opinion that people wouldn't die if there was no God to kill them?

It's protecting the civil rights of people, Inky. They are being discriminated against because they are homosexual.

You "believe" incorrectly and are loathe to admit when you are mistaken.
This is a serious character flaw, akin to lying.
How do you reconcile your blatant inability to be honest with the dogma you (pretend to) follow and expect others to?
Do you feel that going to confession incessantly erases all your sins, even though you refuse to "sin no more?"
Do you think G-d is stupid and is fooled by the little game you play?
Please grow up.

It's the truth.

I know, I know, you just don't understand, do you?

Okay, I'll try to dumb it down enough for you. First of all, how many fetuses did YOU gestate? Was it EVER a possibility that YOU would abort any of your pregnancies, Witless?

Yep, I feel the same way as your friend; an atheist/secularist (I like both terms so I mix them up). I feel I was very lucky to realize what a load of misogynist BULL Catholicism is and be able to reject all of its toxic baggage before it ruined the quality of my life. Why ANY woman would want to chain herself to such a backward religion is beyond me, but thankfully I'M not chained to it any longer, nor will I ever be.
To me, Ink, sASSy, and Knutter (aka HuskerDu or whatever name she's using this week) are all cut from the same anti-choice/religionist mold. They all defend that toxic church and try and sell us the CON JOB that the Catholic Church cares about women. Well, they're free to believe whatever nonsense they want. Thank goodness I don't have to do the same. I think it's wonderful how much freedom women have when we AREN'T mentally chained to a backward religion like Catholicism.
I understand how you can feel the way you do and I am sure that the Church had a lot to do with it. I don't think anyone should feel 'chained' to a religion. I don't. I use my own conscience. I think that is why God gave us one.

It is only important to me, what God thinks, not the Church.

I also feel strongly that babies in the womb should not be killed which to me is a human reaction, not a religious one. Many people who are not religious feel the same. Call it a gut feeling that killing another human is wrong. Everyone is aware that women have the right to do just that but as men, women and doctors find abortion repulsive there will be fewer performed. Nobody wants to take away your rights. In time abortion will become less popular.

No, although my doctor did hand me a piece of paper with an abortionists name on it when he saw how upset I was to be pregnant. Guess he didn't know me very well. On the other hand I have gays friends and there is no possibility that I would ever commit a hate crime against them.

I am indeed sorry that some gays have been targeted with violence.

They are wiping out Christians in Pakistan and Syria.

Again, numbers are irrelevant. You asked about POSSIBILITY.

Again, here is my point. 100% of LGBT people face the possibility of "death at someone's whim". The same cannot be said for 100% of all embryos/fetuses.

You just said that none of YOUR pregnancies would ever have been aborted. You just proved my point. Thank you.

Ah, missed this the first time reading.

"On the other hand I have gays friends and there is no possibility that I would ever commit a hate crime against them."

I never said 100% of heterosexuals would commit a crime against LGBT. That was never the question.

Do you not know ANY other women who would never have an abortion?

Utter twaddle. There are plenty of children available for adoption. If you really want to adopt, adopt one. Why do they have to be babies?

Thanks for pointing out the elephant in the room, by the way:

If every child was born a wanted child, there wouldn't be ANY children available for adoptions, unless their parents died while they were still children.

I didn't asked you about possibility or anything else. I only ask question of people who might have answers and we know you don't.

Everybody faces the possibility of death at someone else whim.

Did you see all those people shot in DC at someone else's whim.

Oh, stop trying to change what you were asking about. You're fooling no one.

Are you trying to say that your original question was NOT about women who abort electively?

YOU try to be honest for a change.
