That's what your position boils down to ... and you want to steal women's rights to privacy and autonomy out from under them because of it. Like that isn't a destructive force with a different set of consequences you won't bring yourself to admit exist.
"But it doesn't change anything -- except to those who cannot accept other women would reject their unplanned pregnancies."

But there IS a difference.

"That's what your position boils down to ... and you want to steal women's rights to privacy and autonomy out from under them"

No, I want to take away their right to kill.

Really? No such thing as a double homicide for a pregnant woman?

No, there's not moron.

"a double homicide" is singlar AND plural as you keep writing it. Impossible.

From your link:

"Six men and six women convicted Peterson Friday of the first-degree murder of his wife, Laci, and the second-degree murder of the fetus."

He wasn't convicted of HOMICIDE at all.

Moron.

"reject their unplanned pregnancy" is that the same as rejecting their unborn son or daughter?

Then don't have an abortion, Ink.
I won't but aren't you the one who doesn't think abortions should be done after 20 weeks?

I think you did judge him as swine, a liar, a hypocrite and a jackass just in this one post.
Want to backpedal on the judging thing?
If it walks like a hypocrite and quacks like a liar, it's a lying hypocrite. That's not judging. That's discerning by observation. Judging would be me telling him I know for certain he is going to hell or is working for Satan. Like some of you do to me everytime you disagree.

I'm just correctly applying scripture in calling him "swine". I gots pearls, darlin'. I'll cast them when the Good Lord guides me to do so. He's not worth it...yet.

I remember talking to you about the sacred name, YHVH. I gave you a link you said you were going to share with your Rabbi.
Speaking of which, I need to go to my mail and dig through. My rabbi moved to Israel, and we corrispond often. He sent me a few months ago a link to some new scholarly articles on that, which I beleive you'd be interested in. I'll try to play around and find them tonite and PM the links to you.
I'm always interested to hear from you, having studied your faith, Judaism, since Christianity can't be understood without knowledge of the OT.
Gtown's head would explode if he knew the OT had been translated into many many many languages by JC's time. Don't tell him. He thinks the Bible should be read in English as is. No translating and God forbid no comparision to other translations -- like Coptic.(fascinating nuances and levels of understanding one would miss if all they did was read the King James or any other English translation. I guess he thinks French and Spanish speaking folks don't have French and Spanish translations -- lol).
I find it intersting, and very confusing - why so many different versions of the Christian bible exist - many of which actually contradict each other.

While I understand that the ancient languages may not translate well in all instances to English for example (let alone to French or Spanish LOL), most words DO have specific meanings, and it seems that some Christian bibles are more commentary in how they're translated, than actual scripture.

In the Jewish faith, there's really NOT many different versions or translations of the Tanakh. The 1962 JPS translation is generally acknowledged as the most literally accurate translations of the Tanach, and is used worldwide by most, be they reform, conservative, orthodox or whatever, as it uses the Masoretic Text of the Aleppo Codex as its base. While there's different publishers with very minor differences, there's no actual different "versions" of the Tanakh like there are for the christian versions of bibles.

Thoughts?

Classifying the word abortion into spontaneous, noninduced, induced, and termination does not change the definition of abortion -- pregnancy ending prior to term. All it does is show different ways it ends prior to term.
Katie, I mean no harm, but I think that's what Sue's been trying to say....

Try and get out of it but it was judging by any standard.

In black and white you judged him to be swine, a liar, a hypocrite and a jackass.o don't say you don't judge or you will look like all the things you called him.

I think, in an effort to further simplify the King James, most versions of the Bible have lost the original meanings (because they substitute words that get further and further away from the basic translation).

As a young student, myself, I have to rely on scholars, long dead, to get translations, as close as possible.

What do you thinnk of...

The Companion Bible is my main tool. It's a wealth of information. Poke around the appendices, if you have time. The Serpent in Genesis is particulary interesting, and a good starting point for Christians who think a snake told Eve to eat an apple. lol

Wow, J uses this bible, she loves it! Our rabbi actually suggested it to her when she was going to bible study classes he ran. I'm familiar with it from looking it over here, but never actually read it. I really should I know LOL. So many books, so little time...

You are as much a real Chrisitan as Foomuffchew is a real jew. Her "rabbi" went back to Isreal to probably be chastized for pretending to be a rabbi and pretending to marry lesbisns and hiomosexuals, something that is not done in the jewish Faith.

That I was told by a "real" Rabbi.

Idiot, you wouldn't know a real rabbi if you tripped over his payot.
