That's the impression I get from both Inky's and Sassy's posts as well. They really don't like it when their faith-based "all women were meant for marriage/motherhood" dogma is challenged, especially by women who enjoy being single and who have no children BY CHOICE.
So they have to say that single/childfree (the term for no kids by choice) women are "angry, bitter, lonely," etc. when such is usually NOT the case at all.
I guess they're forgetting about all the miserable married women out there.

The issue was the woman's grandmother whom she classified as Catholic/pagan.
Let's not change the issue to your idea about what Catholics might believe or worship. Let's stick with the basic definitions of each....

Given this, please explain what a Catholic/pagan is.
No, the first post *was* the issue. The responding post was nothing but a distraction. One with which you, apparently, want to run.

It is duly noted nobody has answered my question of what's in it for them to criminalize abortion. Why don't you go first even though the post wasn't directed to you?

I can see you can't stand to be left out. Gotta do something about that ego.

Well, I can now see God, in many many things, and perhaps it was a bad example, but my point is, when a person has been saved "born agaim", that person just KNOWS it, and will Never ever forget it. They may not be able to say 4:30 am on fri - Jan 15,1985, but they will Never forget that it took place.
It's a hard thing for anyone to explain, since the wind blows where it wills -you don't know where it's going, or where it's been, but you do Know that it touched you, as it came by.
Ps - it has Nothing to do with conforming, in order to be accepted, as katie suggest. No one can conform without God's power, and that's the entire reason He came and died for us.
He wants us just like we are (warts and all)
He does the conforming.:)
So he wants murderers, rapists and sadists to be "just like" they are?

Gtown's Freudian slip, probably. Every time he wrote "conformation" in his post, he really meant confirmation -- as in confirming an order. It was too good to pass up! LOL

Many born-again Christians believe that Catholics and Orthodox Christians are more pagan than Christian.

What is expected of men today? If I understand you correctly, the Old Testament should be discarded? If that's the case, why do I so often hear Catholic priests quoting from the OT?
Ink, you cannot have it work both ways. It's either old/out of date to be discarded, or it's the word of God and every single sentence in the Bible matters.
Why can't you have it both ways the Bible was written for a time and place. Some of the customs and way of life don't work now.

What religious person that you know does sacrificial killing of lambs now. Maybe every sentence does matter but it has to be put into context. Catholic priests quoting from the old testament usually are about God's relationship with the children of Israel not about bringing old Jewish customs into 21st century life.

Thanks, Inky, you just proved Bitner's point. That being, any woman who isn't like you and sASSy, who prefers NOT to either get married or have children, who prefers, perhaps, to be a financially independent career woman instead, has something "wrong" with her. She must have had some terrible "life experience" that has made her so unwilling to follow the same life script that the Catholic Church (or any other conservative "Christian" church) has dictated women "should" follow.
A growing number of women have decided they DON'T want to stay in the restrictive confinement of marriage and motherhood ONLY. It seems to me that the only women who are bothered by the decision of some women to remain single and childfree (which means no children by CHOICE rather than by circumstance) are women like you and sASSy. If you weren't, you wouldn't be circulating these "angry, frustrated, man-hating" labels about them.
No it's not what you say but how you say it. A couple of you sound like you see yourselves as victims and blame men and being tied down with children. Morgana told us about her mother who was a victim of her husband and the times. She was angry for her mother. The anger comes through the posts.

The 10 commandments belong to the OT.
Now I am confused.
Should the OT be paid attention to or not?
Yes it is full of history and laws that we follow even today.

As I have said before and will probably say a million times more, some of the OT describes the ways and customs of the very beginnings of the nation of Israel. Those customs, circumcision, sacrificing animals, picking husbands for daughter, marrying your dead brother's wife etc don't apply any more. Can you tell the difference or is that you just don't want to?

The Catholic Church doesn't bother divorced women. In theory they believe that husbands and wives should remain together but reality says they don't.

Why don't they apply anymore? Then why are they still in the book called the bible. If they are nil and void then the book the OT should be nil and void.

Now, let me see if I have this straight. Correct me if you feel I am wrong.

The god of the OT changed his mind on his own laws, he thought he was being somewhat of an asshole. SO, to rectify things he created himself into his only begotten son (male of course), this could only happen through the legs of a virgin for some odd reason. So he landed on planet earth on a suicide mission to save us from himself. Is this correct?

I think conservative Catholic or Christian women DO have to follow such backward and oppressive rules, if they have decided they are going to "live by what the Bible says" or words to that effect. And these are CHRISTIAN rules too, they don't just apply to Jewish laws.
That's why I kicked the toxic baggage of gods, religions and churches to the curb. I refused to be treated like a second-class citizen, a man's unpaid servant, and mindless baby factory "for God and church" simply because I am a woman. I decided that for MYSELF, the benefits of secularist freedom are much better than the miseries of religionist slavery. Got a problem with my saying that? Too bad. I'll say it as many times as I want.
Since you aren't a conservative Christian or Catholic woman, maybe you don't have a clue how conservative Christian and Catholic women live.

Good now that is settled and we don't have to use it anymore to make our points. No more blaming the B. for all women's problems. Women can now stand up on their own two feet and put the blame for whatever is bothering them on themselves.
