Sep 17, 2012 Full story: Feministing 1,598

If you've been following the conservative assault on reproductive rights, then you might know that Virginia recently suffered a right-wing takeover that threatens to shut down almost every single abortion clinic in the state.

I don't have to. I know it's not there, as I've read the bible. YOU are the one claiming it IS there, so it's up to YOU to offer proof.

You won't though, because you can't. We've been through this before, you never can prove your claims.

Like I said, belief without proof.
That may be the dictionaries, but it isn't the bibles.

No it isn't. The dictionary adapted the word because people who do not know God interpretated it as that.

I actually suspected what you were refering to all the time. It is actually says "faith is the substance of", not, "faith is being sure of" in the actual greek.

I said nothing about "being sure of". In fact, it's YOU who claims that your faith has proof.

And yes, even in the bible, faith is touted as belief even in the absence of proof.

Oh, SURE you "suspected" @@ Yeah, right.

I didn't say thinking of themselves first. You are equating loving oneself with selfishness. That's not what I meant. Nevermind, Witless, you are being obtuse again. You either cannot understand, or refuse to even try, which is worse.
I asked about devoutness. You are assuming it. As you and others have pointed out many times, going to church does not make one devout. Also, a funeral at a church does not mean attendence. It could have been where some family members attended church.
Okay tell me about loving oneself. I already said that we have an inate sense to take care of our mind and body, what can you add to that.

LOL, nonsense. Obviously, you have no life, but I do. I was busy living it, and have lost nothing. Certainly not to you, who has never proven any of his ridiculous claims.

Shut up child. Not only does the bible say abortion is wrong, it is also wrong scientifically and morally.
Where exactly does the bible discuss abortion and deem it wrong? How exactly is abortion wrong "scientifically"? Morals are cultural and subjective not universal.
