Not at all. If you bothered thinking it through instead of your knee-jerk point-scoring, you might have considered that IN their culture, they were behaving badly. Treason against king and god was pretty much the worst thing they could do. I don't care about religion, but most of the founders did.
I was framing the argument according to THEIR lights, not mine. It's something people do when they can think outside of their own petty worldview.
<quoted text>
"IN their culture, they were behaving badly" - not entirely, why then did the French Revolution occur? that was "very BAD" for the culture, but it happened anyway, didnt it?

"IN their culture, they were behaving badly" - AND? this is the thing, you keep putting actions into the context of whether or not it was considered evil BACK THEN? or evil NOW........why not, instead, decide whether it was evil PERIOD? ie, stop claiming that b/c the JAPANESE found mass murder okay, it was okay - stop claiming that b/c the English found it bad to cecede, that it was BAD TO CECEDE ---------- i dont care what was "considered" evil back then - i care about what IS & what WAS evil, period

so, you defend the japanese atrocities by saying "it wasnt that bad, you have to understand their culture" - thats to say, it wasnt evil b/c they didnt CONSIDER it evil - but theres the problem-------it WAS evil

you just need to admit that FACT instead of dancing with the devil in your moral relativist worldviews

There is no reason why we should expect Jesus to have dealt explicitly with birth control any more than with euthanasia, nuclear weapons, chemical weapons, artificial insemination, or any of the other moral problems we have in the world today. He gave us the general principle that we must do God's will, not our own, even if it means denying ourselves. The will of God is manifested to us in two ways: expressly in Holy Scripture, and by the natural moral law. He established the Catholic Church to be our authoritative guide to protect us from our own liability to error.

you still see my point - are you aware that many say Muslims are responsivle for killing 270 million people since its inception? now, as staggaring as that sounds, i, unlike YOU, understnad that thats spread over 1600 years, and i dont necessarily know if many of those deaths had nothing to do with Islam ------- on top of that, i dont bitch day & night about Muslims, even tho theyre still a great threat to us today (the bad ones, dont get it twisted)
but YOU think we should all be on your anti-religion bandwagon, & circle jerk to bible bashing - fact is most of the deaths due to CHristian doctrine are ones that wouldnt happen in this century - so why so concerned? bitch about something else
"are you aware that many say Muslims are responsivle for killing 270 million people since its inception?"

Where did you get this number?

"fact is most of the deaths due to CHristian doctrine are ones that wouldnt happen in this century - so why so concerned?"

So what does Vlad have to do with century? Yeah...

"bitch about something else"

Okay...how about Catholic priests raping boys? Or your fkn Church pitching a fit over insurance coverage for birth control while they allow coverage for Viagra AND they take federal funding? How about the Catholic Church oppressing women because they are against BOTH abortion AND birth control? How about priests who rape nuns? You like any of those?

In Genesis 38:9 we read that Onan "spilled his seed upon the ground", and in Genesis 38:10 God slew him "because he did a detestable thing".

St. Augustine (4th century) rightly summed up the Apostolic tradition on the subject of birth control in his treatise on the sin of adultery when he wrote: "Marital relations even with a lawful wife, are unlawful and degrading when the conception of a child is deliberately frustrated. This was the sin of Onan, and God struck him dead because of it." Go to confession yet Ladi? The priest won't laugh at you

Sorry "Knit" but I can't see this as anything other than a case of "manufactured outrage."
While I felt that the Administration may have overstepped its bounds with regards to separation of church and state issues, churches were specifically exempt from this.
Now that the burden has shifted to insurance carriers the League has even less to complain about; the supposed scenario about a hypothetical employee demanding "free abortion-inducing drugs" is simply nonsensical and meant to be nothing short of incendiary.
Also attempts to contrast this with the "freedoms" enjoyed by the Quakers and Amish are disingenuous; they're not receiving federal funding nor are they providing services in the "public sector."
Leaving aside the numbers of Catholic women who use contraceptives, another thing that seems to get glossed over are the numbers of women who primarily use these drugs not for contraception, but to regulate haywire menstrual cycles.
Finally, I've yet to see a satisfactory answer as to why there's so much sound-and-fury regarding contraceptives being covered by these insurance plans, but none regarding the covering of drugs like Viagra...
A couple of Catholics (knit and sjm, maybe?) said on this thread that the RCC allows women to use bc to regulate their cycles. I think someone posted an article that said nuns in combat zones could use it, in case they were raped.

Hi Chicky! Was thinking about you! I heard a bunch of songs on the radio that reminded me of you, recently, and wondered where the hell you were.

You are an evil, despicable, demon. You are the one that needs a priest. Now run along to one of your wizards and confess to being an ugly, disgusting, pos. It won't help, you are just too sick, but do it anyway.

"Knit," I've got to disagree with you here...
What sort of "proof" are you able to offer that confirms your position other than quotes from "Scripture?"
Once more--let's be honest here--these "quotes" are rather vague and open to a wide spectrum of interpretation, are they not...?
What precisely is the "Natural Moral Law?"

Is this Universal?
If so, are there references to this "Law" in other cultures that do not happen to subscribe to the doctrines of Catholicism...?

Thanks for the SPAM that you stole from someone. Thief.

The REALITY is is that there is nothing that remotely refers to contraception in the BIBLE, you know, the *source* of Catholic doctrine?

Besides, dumbkopf, if you must do "G-d's will", then NFP goes AGAINST G-d's will when used as a contraceptive.

OoOoOoOoOoOoPs!!!

Oh, what a tangled web we weave, eh, knit?

Those weren't her words, John. She's not going to be able to give you a coherent response to these questions.

SHe plagiarized them from someone in an attempt to shut me down.

Not happening.

John, never saw it. Uhm, yes, pretty much what I remember - minus "impure thoughts". I don't think girls were ever questioned in that manner and certainly they got a free ride when masturbating - since there's nothing in the Bible condemning and precious seed isn't spilled.
I highly recommend it!

Great movie!

"how about Catholic priests raping boys" - well if you wanna rail against child rape, do it, but dont single them out BECAUSE theyre christian - which IS the only reason u do it (again, if it were Muslims doing it or black Kwanzais, you wouldnt say a word) BIGOT

"Or your fkn Church" - FCK YOU!

"How about priests who rape nuns? " - um, is this some kind of made up epedemic???

Ah, so NFP is unlawful and degrading when used as a contraceptive since the conception of a child is deliberately frustrated.

THANK YOU for proving my point about NFP, dear.

OooooooooPs!
