<quoted text>Killing the unborn makes her feel powerful. She's probably eaten one or more in one of her ceremonial frenzies. Bleh, that is SO not attractive to anyone who is sane.
You know, if you spent the time you spend lying about people on an anonymouse forum, writing down these fevered fantasies of yours, you could make a lot of money in the fiction market.

Meantime, thanks again, for proving me right.

<quoted text>All you ever do is lie. The problem is that so many of the ones you lie to don't look into the finer details of conception or they might reconsider aborting the entity you keep calling fetus and "not fully human".
I don't lie.

You did though, I have never said it's "not fully human". Ever. Stop putting words in my mouth and pretending you know what I think and do. You don't.

<quoted text>The facts ARE that you lust for innocent blood and you facilitate feeding their life force to your dark cause. You have no morals and no shame. You are reprehensible and barely human. A slug has more of a conscience than you do. You don't care about womens' rights, you only use abortion issues because you think it makes your god happy, that he will grant you some kind of power. Fat chance of that. Make some magic, witch. G'head prove your powers. It's too bad that people like you have caused so much heartache to please a god that doesn't exist.
Wow, there is not even one fact is this post of yours. None of it even comes close to fact.

Who said I was for abortion? I am against abortion personally. But it is not for me to decide what a woman should do with her body.

Obviously you failed Biology. A human life starts with the UNION of sperm and egg.
"If you dont like abortions don't have one"
Why should this only apply to abortion?
Luckily we have the right to work to change the laws that we don't agree with. Isn't this a GREAT country.
Wrong, scientifically life doesn't start until the offspring is capable of surviving outside of the womb. It's you who failed biology. See, morons like you are losing any resistance to progress because intelligent people actually know things.

Generalization not supported by facts followed by name calling.
Atheists want power, but again, your rhetoric stands in the way.

It totally is. Science is what keep showing you religious liar up time and time again. Science proves the resurrection was impossible and science proves the universe was not created in seven "days".

Idiots who lie about atheism like yourself don't get to have valid opinions anymore. Its a mental illness that you suffer from that prevents you from accepting atheists.

May this be a consolation to atheists as schools ignore laws and teach ID and restrict other atheist ideas.
