Exactly. They constantly piss and moan about so-called "christian persecution" ANY time one of us gives them (Knutter/sASSy/Ink/NR) a dose of well-deserved criticism, but have absolutely NO problem ragging on anyone who they disapprove of. Obviously, it's only "persecution" when THEY are being criticized.
And they wonder why almost nobody here respects them. Go figure.
They are hypocrites...plain and simple.

Why would she find a refrence to The Great Rite or Skyclad insulting or a put down? Aren't they Wiccan practices?
If you wanted to talk to me about The Mass, I wouldn't be insulted even though you probably think it is nonsensical.
Ink..."You dance around naked in the moonlight and have actual or imitated sexual acts as some religious rite and I am the extremist?"

That was meant as a put-down, and we both know it.

I also notice that you did not address my remarks about the shallow insults about her personal/physical appearance that she endures on here constantly...coming from those oh-so-loving-Christlike Christians. And you actually think being called an extremist compares with that kind of abuse?

Not from me she doesn't. I have never said anything personal about her or her family.
And no I don't think it is okay to say such things.
Okay, I know you haven't said those things...but you haven't spoken out against it either. So now who is supposed to come to your defense for being called an extremist?

The Holy Spirit will open up our minds and heart to the truth. Gods word is easy to understand if you allow the spirit to guide your thought-understanding process. Otherwise,you will not comprehend it as written. It's complex to those who are seeking truth. The phrases (i.e.the ends of the earth or every corner)are being taking out of context,thus changing their original meaning. I fear those doing this are just copy and pasting for their own agenda but are missing the truth. Be serious about it(in other words-learn,educate yourself about this Love story of God)or you will continue to bang your head against the wall in frustration at your confusion.
With all due respect,I was once there as well. I don't judge your ignorance,I just want you to understand that there is sanity and truth in the word of God when you are ready. I fought it as well( for my own personal reasons that had to do with my dysfunctional family lacking in a spiritual life,leaving me hopeless UNTIL I ended up on my knees in tears at the senseless existence I was living. Pray tell,I did have my good days but it didn't seem to make up for the void).
Oh geez, another attempt at "witnessing" or whatever religionists call it these days.

PASS. I kicked the toxic baggage of gods, religions, and churches to the curb over 25 years ago, and I still consider it one of the best decisions I ever made. I have NO intention of trading in the pleasures of secularist FREEDOM for the miseries of religionist slavery.

Secularism = FREEDOM. No dogmas required.

Time to see the full picture in front of us,eh? Maternal deaths,along with miscarriages, premature births and conceiving issues,are all consequences of abortion and birth control usage. I am in the business. I assure you that I am well informed. No attacks to attempt to disprove this will be accepted.
My question to you,who support this assault on women's bodies and emotional/mental health,is "do you care"?
P.S in addition to the above,allow me to include psychological issues that call for medicine, are increasing at alarming proportions. Women have allowed themselves to be victimized and it breaks my heart.

This is Jesus talking to the disciples about preaching His word of love and redemption. I think it means the same thing today.

You're in the abortion business.........it's not going to go well for you. What data do you have that the increase in meds for psychological issues has anything to do with abortion?

The outright LIE that contraceptives contribute to the increase in MATERNAL death, or that the rise in maternal death is caused by abortion, will not be accepted either. Who the hell do you think you are, anyway??

Abortion has been around as long as pregnancy, mister. It's never been a safer practice for women than it is in 2013, and for you to assert that it is an assault on women's bodies and emotional/mental health is laughable. The REAL assault has been perpetrated by nutjobs like you, who want to guilt and shame women into declining sex without 'benefit' of marriage, and punish us with pregnancy as the right arm of your god. Abortion saves lives- and you worship fetuses.

'Psychological issues that call for medicine'?? Almost ALL of this phenomena can be attributed to Big Pharma pushing said medicine for every minute condition which could theoretically be considered 'medicable'. We're not crazy ...we're lazy, brainwashed, and numb. The powers that be, prefer it that way.

What heart?

Women are victims of the Church's endeavors to convince us that we are 'less than', and the State has begun to insist that we remain so. The powers that be, prefer that too.

I decline.

But remember. You're making the law. Actually, that's what Roe v Wade does. The future human gains consideration as the pregnancy progresses.

My guess? It's a worker bee at a crisis pregnancy center. Probably a clinic protestor as well. I peg her as the frothy type.

It's actually States which accord fetuses that consideration, on a State by State basis...the RvW decision doesn't demarcate where or when a State may decide to declare its interest in the fetus. It precludes States from interfering in a woman's privacy, relative to her pregnancy, and her medical/reproductive choices, but affirms that States may still have an interest in the fetus. That's it.

Just saying....
