Richard Dawkins tweets on abortion: ‘any fetus is less human than an adult pig’

Mar 16, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: freerepublic.com

It would seem the pro-life movement has acquired an unlikely supporter. On Wednesday, Richard Dawkins, a vocal proponent of atheism and the author of The God Delusion, posted a provocative tweet about abortion: With respect to those meanings of "human" that are relevant to the morality of abortion, any fetus is less human than an adult pig.

Satan is a christian concept.

What bothers you about Bitners faith is the simple fact that it acknowledges the female. You prefer pure phallic worship which is exactly what the common male hierarchy religions offer. Women as second class, subservient and submissive and treated as a owned object makes life so much more comfortable for the insecure male.

Obviously, It doesn't even understand Wicca, and I doubt It really cares. My religion just makes a convenient deflection from the fact that It doesn't really have an argument on the subject.

No need to google. You lied, it's that simple. This is what you do, make the most outrageous claims, and then refuse to offer proof. Oh, I know, I know, you'll do it later, right? Uh huh, I've heard that before, yet you never do.
You're a liar, which means I've already won. You'll just have to put on your big girl panties, and deal with it.
I don't know what search I did to find it, but it actually exists. Google it yourself, or ask your mother to do it.

I now have to ask our readers something I hoped I won't have to. Dear reader I don't know how to deal with this guy. Should I walk away or should I do battle with Largelanguage? Should I swear at him or should I use kid gloves? Should I say Largelanguage is crazy or am I assuming too much?
Just give me a plan, any plan! I don't care what it is, it could involve trying to make the first girl I serous liked fall in love with me over the phone, despite the fact she rejected me years ago! I have no idea where she lives! And over the F***ING PHONE!!!! I… would give it a try… no you read right I would do it I need someone to tell me what to do. I am now my dear (and hopefully merciful) ruler (reader) completely at you disposal, my mind is blank and the washing has even been done for you.
What are my orders my lords, how do I deal with this?

So since millions of people used the same avatar on their Facebook pages, it automatically means Bitner is everyone on Facebook?
Unless it is some trend where people are meant to borrow some avatar(I don't know how facebook culture operates), then yes, everyone would be Bitner who has that avatar.

You are lying. You never used that avatar. You are simply making that claim to defend Bitner.

It's YOUR claim, YOU prove it.

Of course, we both know that you can't, because it's a lie to begin with. Just like everything else you post.

Of COURSE they're meant to be used. By all those who support marriage equality. And they are not all the same anyway, as you can see just from here. You are too stupid for words to convey.

You hate men. You are not a real women, but just damaged goods. You are not normal, and are just a useless butch. So many normal families have both mommies and daddies. But you don't, you are misssing out, and you do not have a normal family. Its too late for you to have a Dad now. You will always have a *thing* for never being feminine and having the beauty of a women.

What did you do for Imbolg celebration? Did you touch your grandchildren with a match for a though seconds, to try to "sacrifice" them, without killing them?

Beauty of a women?

Do try to learn English, it's such a nice language. BTW I know some very sexy, extremely feminine Wiccan chicks.

You hate women and consider them nothing more than subservient twits.

You are an insecure male who wants his mommies tit in his mouth 24/7. Your concept of normal is male hierarchy so you can PRETEND to be a man when you are actually a mommies boy.

I am not missing out on anything. I am a proud confident woman who has accomplished much and beat the male insistence that I have a limited role.

The "beauty" of a woman by your definition is nothing more than a brainless subservient twit that can serve you and make your life more comfortable. Game up, it is over. You either accept women as your equal or wither into the past alone and forgotten.

"Torching" women was a christian practice.

No, really, I did. It's easy to find:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/27/equa...

and it went viral on FB when SCOTUS began considering two cases that could extend equal protection under the law to marriage for gays:

http://theweek.com/article/index/242043/the-s...

But I figured a week was long enough to voice my support and changed my avatar back here and to a new one on FB. I'm not the most frequent poster here, though, and there are probably others who didn't notice either.

Rofl! Obviously you still hate men. You hate anything Phallic. You are not confident unlike real women, you are worthless, your husband has no use for you. Real women can think, instead of being gullible. What did your boyfriend do with you? Gullible little idiot!

You hate males, and the penis, you are not for use with a man, you can't produce offspring, but you know how to be a sick lesbian freak!

You have no purpose, even your husband and boyfriends have told you that.
