You dont have a clue as to the gender of that embryo. Neither does she or anyone else. She did not kill a child, she killed the POTENTAL for a child to be born.
And she's okay with that. It didn't affect you in ANY way, nor did it affect anyone else.
Just because YOU WANT others to have a guilt trip over it, doesn't mean they will.
The child in the picture was a daughter, you know a girl baby. Her name is Nevaeh. I have no idea if Elise's baby was a girl or boy.

Angelo worked in stellar spectroscopy, made the first systematic spectroscopic survey of the heavens, pioneered in classifying stars by their four spectral types, studied sunspots, solar prominences, photographed solar corona during the eclipse in 1860, invented the heliospectroscope, star spectroscope, telespectroscope and meteorograph. He also studied double stars, weather forecasting and terrestrial magnetism. He became director of the Vatican Observatory at the age of 32 and dedicated himself energetically to the task. Sabino Maffeo S.J. tells the story of his tenure at the Vatican Observatory.(See Maffeo S.J. Sabino, In the Service of the Popes Translation by George V. Coyne, S.J.

Here's the deal. I was awaken by this awsome God, and I know the truth about God, if that's all I know!
Good for you. Sincerely, I'm happy for you, but you can't force that view on anyone else.
And if you just knew that there was a God, and people were headed the wrong way, would you not be very passionate about it?
Oh I DO know there's a G-d and I AM passionate in my own way about it, however, my faith does not see fit to try to force our view on others, nor do we want to legislate our religoius views.

When I see someone going in what I BELIEVE is the wrong way in their lives, then I tell them what I think if asked - and I would not introduce my religion into it UNLESS ASKED. Faith is a personal thing, a private matter - and unless asked directly by someone what my faith's view would be, I wont usually offer it. I did this quite often actually when I did volunteer work in the women's jail in Baltimore, and sometimes people DID ask.

However - I dont repeat myself over and over to the point where they dont want to hear from me anymore, as that IS counterproductive.

There's something to be respected much more from someone that carries their strong faith proudly, but quietly to someone that feels a need to bludgeon another with it, especially when they know the person they're bludgeoning isn't OF their faith.

Respect for faith goes both ways, you cant ask for it in yours if you dont give it to others and their faiths.

<quoted text>Rome was not built in a day, and the realization that abortion is murder will take a long time to materialize in hearts and minds of the American public. Yet I feel very confident that this realization will occur someday and then there will be wide support for the US Supreme Court to reverse the Roe vs Wade decision. Abortion will be outlawed again in this nation. It is a great hope of mine that it occurs in my lifetime so I can witness it.
I hope for a confession from George H.W. Bush and the Skull and Bones society with regard to their orchestration of the Kennedy assassination.

But, as true as it is for my hope never materializing, it is for yours as well.

Good luck though.

Not always true. Proper names are capitalized SOMETIMES as a matter of respect, just as people sometimes write G-d instead of spelling it out as a matter of respect. One would have to believe that its a proper name of a person to bother to worry about capitalizing it. I dont believe he ever existed, tho I will show respect to the view of the faith when speaking TO someone that I respect such as Sue or OL or Pups, on a subject I respect, the Catholic faith.
If I were speaking of Jesus Jones (someone I actually know), I would capitalize his name. I dont view ***your version*** of jesus as a person however. I dont bother to capitalize fictional characters that I have no respect for.

I'm not getting what you're trying to say about lawyers and malpractice. Please clarify this.
You said: "[i]t seems to me that the abortion doctors wanted an exception from prosecution because they know that what they do amounts to murder."

I simply mean that you're full of sh*t. If doctors really wanted an exception from prosecution on FHL's, and got it, then it's axiomatic that the lawyers who comprise the large majority of the legislature of this country would have also written a law that would exempt all lawyers from a civil action for malpractice.

Get it now?

Who said anything about a sinful nature? We said little kids lie on their own. Sometimes is the most amusing ways. We, parents have to teach them to own up. Why take a simple comment and turn it into a stupid disscussion of 'the sinful children'? Guess you have nothing else to do.

I know how the bible was collated. It is one book, just like a book of short stories is still a book. A lot of other books were considered and then destroyed in the process;only books that furthered the early church's agenda were kept. There is no way to prove your deity guided its editing process.
Evolution in the context of this discussion is a biological process; it has nothing to do with the origin of life. You need to read a real science book; scientific theory isn't just guesswork. There is ample evidence to support evolution; there is none whatsoever to support your deity--or any other deity.
<quoted text>
I believe you're wrong.
I also think you only know what you were taught, both on evolution, and on what you think the early church is and was.

I gave examples of evolution, so now "the church "
Some say the first christian church started about 140 years after the death of Jesus.
Many are taught the wrong thing, when it comes to evolution and Jesus Christ.
Many "churches " have Jesus in their sign, but far from their heart and teachings. Although I firmly believe that there are born again christians in every "church " denomination, many denominations teach everything BUT THE GOSPEL MESSAGE.

Satan is the god of this world, and has many religions -his most dangerous ones are those that claim Jesus, but teach the works of men.

They are not hard to spot, if any "church "is not lifting up Jesus Christ, as for your only hope, then they preach another gospel.

I was raised church of christ, untill age nine. They teach on being baptized "and being a good person -holding on to death.

Although, their are some true christians within the coc, their teachings are not of Christ, but the works of men.

Each church has their "steps " to heaven.

The more steps that is put between God and man, the less chance of ever having eternal life.

According to dictionary.com 's definition of bigotry, you're a bigot as well:

"1.stubborn and complete intolerance of any creed, belief, or opinion that differs from one's own.

2.the actions, beliefs, prejudices, etc., of a bigot."

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/bigotr...

Foo has expressly stated she respects Christians who act as true Christians, even capitalizing Jesus. I echo her sentiment. My decision to part company with Christianity was, by and large, based on my disbelief of the trinity and the many lies I found in the new testament, notwithstanding my desire to live in a single faith home with my wife and my daughter.

Foo was born into Judaism. I will bet my left nut you were not born into christianity, because of what I've stated previously, to which you've not responded; that a person can only call themselves a christian after praying the infamous "sinner's prayer."

So, if you want to also call me a bigot because, like foo, I despise hypocrisy that people the likes of you exhibit on every f*cking post, go right ahead. No foreskin off my d*ck.

Since you're a eunuch and don't have a d*ck, I doubt you'd understand what I mean.

I've never known a satanist to deny satan. However, few satanists see satan as their master; most don't even see him as a real entity. Satan is perceived as a symbol of rebellion to so-called moral precepts that impinge on personal freedoms.

You're probably thinking of diabolism, which is exceedingly rare these days.

Hosea 13:16
"The people of Samaria must bear their guilt,

They will fall by the sword;
their little ones will be dashed to the ground,

God did not instruct the Israelis to rip open the pregnant women, that was a decision which was made by the Israelis. It was a terrible decision to make and I can only hope that God forgave them for this terrible act.
So, is it your contention then that G-d's prophet Hosea was not speaking G-d's word to the people of Israel? Would it then be fair to say that if your contention is correct, then the bible is NOT the true and inerrant word of G-d?

Not one curse word. Lol
I do agree, that we shouldn't force our views, and me writing on a message board, is a bit different, then me going to wal mart, and just start preaching.

I feel compelled to write these things, but force no one to read them.
God uses people to spread His word.

With so many false religions, many in the name of Christ, then someone with truth should speak the truth.
There is a way, that seems right to a.person, but the end therof leads to death.
We all think were right, but that just can't be.
God is true and everyone a liar.
