In the 70`s, the RCC wasn`t actively political and wasn`t trying to interfere with women's medical decisions. They weren't fighting gay rights and even recognized a gay liaison group, Dignity. There was no hypocrisy involved; I went there for classes in the arts. The scholarship I got was specific to that college; they received the money regardless of who won it.
In the 70`s the cover-up was IN EFFECT, a-hole. Were you shot in the head or something?
<quoted text>
Abortion became legal in the early 70's,so prior to that,they didn't have to become politically active for that reason. Once it became legal,of course things changed. Keep in mind that once upon a time(while we were still civilized),a womans medical decision didn't include deliberate killing of her child.

I don't understand why you would think that the church would go after gays. The church doesn't go after sinners. It is was only when the gays starting thinking that they were going to change tradtional marriage,that anyone spoke up.

That makes no sense Elise. If they believed in Gods existence and accepted God as their creator but decided in the end to reject him,then you are wrong.

Medical risks are a real issue. I think a doctor should refuse to do a procedure if the results could be much more dangerous than NOT doing it. That has nothing to do with the right of a woman to abort; if her doctor thinks the procedure has acceptable risks, that's fine.
Your definition of clairvoyance involves knowledge unknown to others, but the original post referred to knowing what other people know. Not the same thing, moron.
<quoted text>
Dr's do all type of cosmetic surgeries that have many high risks involved with them,and yet they do it anyway. MANY procedures are contraversial with unnecessary risks,yet they are still done.

Why doesn't that have anything to do with abortion(in your opinion)? Abortion is not safe(not mentally,not physically and not emotionally). It's unnatural. Childbirth is.

The gospels also say he rose from the dead and that he rose Lazarus from the dead, but that is absolutely not agreed upon. Why do you become so obtuse and have selective memory when called out on something you claim, but can not prove?
They believe that what was written in the gospels was in fact about Jesus. We wern't discussing whether or not they believed the gospels. Some did, some didn't. The only agreement that I spoke of was that

1. he did exist

2. that what is written in the gospels is about him

Obviously non Christians don't believe his claims.

UNICEF collects money to help BORN children in catastrophic circumstances. I know anti-choicers don't give a damn About real, born kids, but they aren't out there performing abortions. Kids collecting for them neither know nor care about their abortion policy and the money tbey collect has nothing to do with it.
The propaganda put in the kids' bags, on the other hand, is directly usurping the parents' authority. Would you approve of me handing out slips saying "there is no god"?
<quoted text>
Of for crying out loud Peteyboy,what does whether the kid knows about their abortion policies or not have to do with the discussion OR point?

The point had to do with Elise coming on here to attempt to give the smackdown to prolifers for putting ANYTHING in kids Halloween bags that have to do with protecting life. UNICEF is not only a huge supporter of abortion but as you pointed out,to protect life in "catastrophic circumstances". SO,stop jumping Elises hypocritical band wagon.

If you don't want to believe that God exists because you personally can't prove it(or the bible),then so be it. What's so hard to understand about that? Prove anyone from your history books,exist. Why do you take "some mans" writings on it?

and THIS ^^^is your answer?

lol

Elise,ink has been very respectful towards all of you and you know that. Truth is,you don't want to admit (once again),that you don't have proof so,..you rely on either insults,name calling or responses like that one above.

Although you SCPL certainly take it amiss that we dare to get angry...acting as if women aren't supposed to feel anger over our autonomy, our motives, and our right to defend ourselves against unwanted pregnancies, questioned...impugned...and chipped away bit by bit. Or about being more or less told that we aren't trusted to make the best choices for our individual circumstances, and the government's going to take over that role, regardless of our feelings about it.
If men were told they'd be required by law to impregnate someone every time they had sex, they'd be pretty frigging angry about it too.
Just sayin.
A humans life is deliberately killed via abortion. You don't have a right to kill your own child because they are unwanted.

You are confused. We are not degrading the role of homemaker and motherhood. The bible degrades it. The bible reduces it to subservience, submissiveness and the need to have a man rule over the wife as though she were a child. It gives it no value but that of a slave.
Who and what we really are is a matter of individuality, it is not up to you or anyone else to determine that for another. You are the one who sounds bitter towards women who choose to be individuals and life life to the fullest. In fact you are intimidated by women who step out of a role issued to them by male hierarchy religions.
Morgie,I am no slave. I am in a wonderful marriage,where we are one. Equal. I treat him as I would treat myself. With respect and value. My bible doesn't degrade my marriage. In fact,our belief in God,allows us to grow together towards our creator,which actually diminishes the self-centeredness/selfish nature that we were born into. It allows us to put another first which allows that love to grow. We receive when we give of ourself. Let's fact it,we are all trapped in that sinful nature and it takes much faith and srength in God to keep it at bay.
Motherhood is also a very selfless job. We don't come first and for some that is a challenge for sure.
Bottom line, you said "We are not degrading the role of homemaker and motherhood" and that is false when statments are made like they have been. ESPECIALLY by ocean56.
""""" ""In fact you are intimidated by women who step out of a role issued to them by male hierarchy religions.""" """""
So,let me get this straight....motherhood is a role issued by male hierarchy religion? Taking care of your child was issued by this male hierarchy religion?
huh?

Honey, I don't respect you or your twin, sassy. You and she are dishonest, obtuse, hypocritical and phoney. I've said many times that I don't take you seriously. You're lucky I even acknowledge you, at all. I certainly will not honor you with the kind of deep, personal conversation that I enjoy with a friend. It's pitiable that you yearn for this connection from someone who dislikes you. Please, go get a friend.

Aside from that he says that women and men are not independent from each other. He says that man comes from God and woman from man and yet man comes from woman by birth. Read more than just the parts that irritate you.

Paul was clearly not of God.
He was just very religious. "Thinking " he was doing Gods work.
After meeting God, and realizing how far he was off on the whole God thing, he made one of my favorite statements,when he listed all of the "great " things he had been, and done, and then turned around and said he counted it all dung.
He then said he only knows Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.
He may, like many today, have known a lot of scripture, but really changed when he met the Arthur.:)
Ya know,I am not convinced that people who go around harrassing or killing are doing Gods work or even think that they are. No more or less than those who claimed to cause 911 did in the name of their religion.

Certainly not of our creator. Perhaps their God was a creation of God,but certainly they aren't authentic or "of God".

BY THE FRUITS YOU WILL KNOW THEM.

""""" He may, like many today, have known a lot of scripture, but really changed when he met the Arthur""""

Satan quotes scriptures and he,as we all know,is not of God. Which proves my point :)

So? Whether or not YOU see marriage and motherhood "like that" is irrelevant to me. If both marriage and motherhood are AGAINST a woman's will, meaning she was forced or heavily pressured by her family or religious community to both marry and have children when she really didn't WANT to do either, then both marriage AND motherhood is a prison sentence for that particular woman.
Under the so-called "traditional marriage" setup, the husband is basically the wife's BOSS, although I know conservative religionists are very careful to avoid that term. I see absolutely NOTHING good about that kind of marital arrangement, because to me, it WOULD be a prison sentence. So I make sure I avoid it. Any guy who wants to be a woman's BOSS in a marriage is definitely a guy to RUN from.
What person that you know of,is FORCED to marry or have children? Ironically,it is your side that makes the claim that nobody is FORCED to do anything(when of COURSE speaking of abortion when they regret it later on in life after being pressured or forced).

I know many unmarried people. I also know many childless couples.

""""" """Under the so-called "traditional marriage" setup, the husband is basically the wife's BOSS"""" """

LMAO!!! that's cute.

Oh Ocean,your posts speak volumes about your life. You are angry at someone or a few even. WHOEVER has twisted your mind and controlled you,is at fault. Stop blaming "traditional marriage,the bible,God,prolifers" or anyone else you can. Something went wrong somewhere in your life. I really do feel sorry for you. I think that you were not respected as a person or woman and I am truly sorry for that.

I have no problem with you or anyone else not wanting marriage or children. I DO have a problem with your solutions to having them at present which is killing. We,as a civilized society,don't kill those of whom we don't want in our lives after the fact. Divorce the man whom you don't want to be in your life. Give your child up for adoption is you don't want them in your life. Killing as choice is where you go wrong.

Maybe you are looking in all the wrong places. A man who has a special relationship with God and loves and trusts him will treat you like the child of God that you are. He won't be interested in being boss. He will be a lover and a friend who believes that all are created equal, male and female.
