I enjoy your post Joyful, different views is why this thread has lasted so long.
You can NOT take what others say here personal, they have views Just as you or I.
When you throw something on the board the different opinions are gonna fly, it's expected.
Don't let it get to ya, and just respond or not.
Don't bit into their BS, unless you wanna be confronted about your belief..
Peace to ya!

Any woman that is looking for long term and serious relationship would spot the BS right away and walk off with a smile.
A woman that is just wanting a little flirtation would entertaining him with a smile and laugh, maybe some talk.
A woman that just wants to screw a little and find out what he's packing, sure the line would work..
Good call.

Individuals today like to blame society for their choice to not be personally responsible. What factors cause a person to not be able to say no to sex?

Not all parents are like that, no. Many people can't be alone, for some reason they "must" have a partner, regardless of how the kids feel about it. You're one of the few :)
Grown ups can take care of themselves, most children can't. A child's needs should come before an adults.

It's a lot of fun. Every time they write you, you don't have to read their words and you get a whole point.

Personal responsibility is mired in a web of social relations, including and not limited to societal inequalities, poverty, family relationships, job prospects, access to health, economic and nutritional resources.
Your culture - America - always blames the individual first and ignores the larger social, societal and socio-economic factors.
I guess it's just easier for you to blame individuals that way.
This is an area where we will see much improvement, after Christianity becomes irrelevant. It's keeping people from accepting the implications of living in a mostly deterministic universe.

That's his schtick, being an online dck. Don't take it too personally, he only does it to people who entertain thoughts of Jesus being real. ;)

I honestly can't say that I disagree with you Rocco. I've been in some tussles with my Christian brethren over the same things you mentioned. I think that the majority of them do to be hurtful, on the contrary they want to help but don't realize what they're doing by hurting others by how they come across.
Thanks, Al. You're probably the only Christian on these threads who has never lost my respect.
I agree - some of those people have "meant" well, quite a few haven't meant well at all.

My biggest problems with either category is when they exhibit behavior that is contrary to the generally perceived "goodness" of religious folks, and you may have noticed the few posts I make are calling them out on those traits that, IMO, are contrary to what the message of Jesus was supposed to be.

One doesn't steal - from anyone. And a thief, in my eyes, that spends so much time on these threads preaching and teaching about "morality" is about as detestable as one can be.
Putting a magnifying glass to the failings of another while ignoring the giant sequoia in their own eye is pretty disgusting.

That's my chief irritant. And one doesn't "talk down" to others, which some are almost incapable of not doing. It's as if they somehow have come to believe that their God belief has somehow made them superior. They're so entrenched in their own perspective that sometimes they don't even realize they're doing it. And some are so incredibly inculcated in their fundamentalism that they cannot, and therefore will not, accept certain scientific facts. The Waaasssuuup's of the world are some of the most injurious adherents to Christianity.

I think one of the reasons I consider you to be a good study for your faith is that you still have possession of your common sense.

I'm ending now, especially given my tendency at the moment to preach myself, lol!
Best wishes to you.

Wow, ok. You took it there. I was being nice. Just so you know.
First, I did not jump into the abortion argument for two reasons: a) I don't know enough about the issues and b) I do not, in any way whatsoever, respect religiously informed opinion - and that means, when I argue with you, it will be with full guns blazing.
But let's skip all that since you picked this fight.
1. Abortion is not murder. Only the uneducated who doesn't understand law or biology, or the manipulative, would say something like that.
2. Abortion is not murder. Only the lowest of low people who want to restrict women's rights and future choices would say something so vile.
3. Third, I take issue with you ignorantly believing all conceptions should be brought to term. That's outright stupidity. You are arguing for the continuation of poverty. You are arguing for women in desperate times to have no choice whatsoever but to become mothers - increasing their desperation and inability to take care of their basic needs. You basically want children to be born to poverty and misery.
Read this, know my contempt for your thoughtless, religious position oh you who have been born to a wealthy nation:
http://www.rci.rutgers.edu/~jdowd/scheper-hug...
4. Developed nations cannot afford any more citizens. By most population experts' calculations, we are approaching the maximum carrying capacity for the world. This means food insecurity - fisheries collapse, decreasing arable land, increased competition for economic, health and nutritional and water security. We should never restrict women's choices and force them to have children in already difficult economic times that will very likely only worsen.
Here, the free version. He's updated it since:
http://faculty.washington.edu/jhannah/geog270...
And I was admitting my error in what I wrote.

a & b. I do know enough about the issues and I do not care what you respect. I respect all ideas, views and opinions, as long as they are respectfully given. Hence, why I do not respect many here. Sorry, I didn't see any guns.:)

I didn't pick any fight. I merely gave my views and ideas. You do know that I have a right to do that, don't you? Also, I did it respectfully, thank you very much and you are welcome.

1, 2, 3, & 4. Abortion is murder, except in the most drastic, dire cases. It isn't a restriction of women's rights. Women have the right to not have sex or to use protection, if they don't want a child. If they choose to have sex/use protection and get pregnant, then they have an obligation to raise that child or give it up for adoption, IMO. No, I am arguing that everyone should accept responsibility for their own choices and actions. Don't want to get pregnant, don't take that chance. Be responsible. If you don't want a child, don't take that chance. It really is that simple.

5. I don't click on links, for the most part. So, your links were useless to me. I only click on limited links of people that I have talked to for a while and know I can trust. I don't know you so don't know whether I can trust your links or not.

6. Have a lovely day filled with love, peace, joy, and happiness. Rainbows and butterflies.

Murder is a legal term, medical abortion performed legally is legal, therefore not murder. It really does not matter how hard you stomp your foot.
I am assuming from your post that you are American. Despite all the evidence to the contrary, America is a democrat country. I am afraid that if you want to continue to live in harmony with a democratic country you need to abide by the laws of that democratic country.
If you don’t like those laws you have the right to vote or move to a country were abortion is illegal and therefore classed as murder... Ireland perhaps, or North Korea, maybe one of the Sharia Islamic countries.
You can't have a rational debate with a closed minded fundies like Joyous. She just wants to puke her precious beliefs and can't be swayed by facts, common sense or reality.
