You're rattling on about 47 million women of child "baring" age! Do you think much about "baring" children? Unclothing them for some purpose or other? Perhaps you
Were trying to type "child bearing", which would make sense, but you made the mistake several times. Was this perhaps a Freudian slip? Do you commonly think of the term "bare" as it relates to children?
I am taking about facts and figures, not dreams and obsession.

Yes I did mean to write bearing, dyslexia can be such a bind sometimes when some thick moron with nothing else to work with decides mockery of disability is far more important than the message

Quotes from the supposed proof YOU provided.
"The Supreme Court ruled in Lawrence v. Texas in 2003 that it is unconstitutional to bar consensual sex between adults, calling it a violation of the 14th Amendment."
"A lawsuit may be filed; Bothwell would likely win, as he should, since there can be no religious test for public office."
But you know this, and still attempt to deny the truth.
Where is my apology?
Queen Blondie is holding high the moral standard of 'rational atheist' oxymorons once again!
Keep trying Thunder Thighs!

Yes and, that makes no difference to the fact that in the states I mentions the laws still stand.

But of course you know this and still attempt to distort the FACTS

Um, Queen Blondie, you 'accidently' left out part of my mocking plagiarism of YOUR post. Why did you do that?
Here it is:
"I can honestly say I have never had a muslim verbally abuse and threaten me for being a Christian."
That happens to be the first line. The line that incriminates you.
But here is what is even more important:
What you may or may not have experienced from muslims personally is pointless. The horrific, sadistic, barbarianism we see happening in Syria, Nigeria, and now Iraq IS important.
Not just your denial, but even your defense puts blood on your hands.
Aside from being another example of 'rational atheist' oxymoronic behavior, it is diabolically despicable.
Why should it incriminate me it is TRUTH. I can HONESTLY that I have never had a muslim verbally abuse and threaten me for anything. Do you have problem comprehending truth?

And why are you mixing all muslims with a few extremist, radical fookwhits? There are over 1.5 billion (that’s BILLION) muslims in this world what included a few thousand nutjobs.

Funny how you can differentiate the extremism of Stalin, Hitler, Karadzic and Mladic from christianity but cannot offer the same to a faith that the your previous right wing government and the press tells you to hate.

The xenophobia instilled in so many westerners by well intentioned governments and press along with the xenophobia indoctrinated by religion in a large part responsible for your hatred and deliberate misunderstanding.

I did not make any judgements; I just questioned your lies and provided evidence.

You always have a choice, if you don’t like it then move to a country more restricted in individual freedoms than the US rather that killing doctors and abusing women who are by the very nature of their predicament under a great deal of stress anyway. It is not your body and it is not your decision.

As for Sunando Sen, he was actually a Hindu. Guess the psycho bush pig moll didn't think enough to make that kind of distinction.
Do they ever make distinctions, I really think the problems are more racial than spiritual, however it’s the religion that breed the racism.

Did not stop you trying to take the p|ss eh? But thanks for being so honest, there are one or few on here who have great fun every time I make such an error.
And I don’t suffer, it is a gift and like all gifts there is a price.

There is a legal tenet “ignorance is no excuse” and it did not stop you trying to take the p|ss eh? But thanks for being so honest, there are one or few on here who have great fun every time I make such an error.

How could Adam and Eve have sinned? The bible says they didn't know what right and wrong was before eating of the tree of knowledge.

So your god sinned, not them.

You wouldn't punish a baby for getting injured. Or would you?

Tinydick, that favour of the current liberal socialist party in your country is all a part of democracy. What you are saying is that you want democracy on your terms and democracy on your terms is not democrat, it is dictatorship.
LOL - you reverse misogamists NEVER play fair with insults!

i see, so democracy for gaytheist fascism is democracy indeed, but democracy for decency and freedom is NOT democray!

can you see how the world is going to be ruled by the AntiChrist soon and for a brief period of time?:-)

Hi "ffj" - I think "Cheetah" doesn't realize that they are sterotyping a group of folks that are not like this.

But then again, so-called "Christians" need to hate others who are not under their disguise. It sort of relieves their pain of suffering, when they express their hatred outwardly.

No - Atheists are not mass-murders. Just like the Catholics, they are not pedophiles.

Catholics are supporters of pedophilia - because they still attend this church, more than likely participate in donating to this church, as well as, donating their time to keep "their church" active and still open.

I wonder if they realize alot of the money that is donated to the so-called "Catholic Church" have gone directly to paying the settlements the so-called "Catholic Church" has had to pay to pedophile victims, because they have refused to put those certain individuals in jail?

"Cheetah" is uninformed, which supports why the poster is lashing out at other belief systems.

Cheers!
