Just pay for it ya damn self.

Actually?

There are many excellent reasons why it's cheaper to pay for free contraceptives, than to pay for unwanted babies later.

And worse-- to pay for the crimes that kids who grow up unwanted typically commit.

A condom costs a few cents.

The crimes committed by an unwanted teen living on the streets, is beyond measure--if people are killed in the process.

Your shortsighted and selfish idiocy is also without limit.

Indeed--- you just described the majority of selfish Genuine Christians™ as exemplified by the American Taliban (teabaggers).

You described them perfectly.

Unless you post specifics with validation, your claim is meaningless.
<quoted text>
My article is replete with referenced sources. Yours has absolutely none.
<quoted text>
Again, your unsupported opinion denying the sourced claim otherwise that I posted.
Moreover, your argument is incredibly poor. A vow of monogamy is certainly more serious than a 'choice'.
To top that off, you try to assert that unmarried people are more monogamous than married people. Not just illogical, but unsupported.
<quoted text>
"Wow and others" is your source of rebuttal??? You must have missed that the last sentence of the first paragraph referenced procreation as the major purpose of marriage.
<quoted text>
Laughable since your rebuttal amounted to less than a just 'wrong' would have.
Here is why:
Once again you exposed your lack of knowledge about the social sciences (Remember your, "Science has nothing to do with marriage").
I have no problem with someone who doesn't know everything. I do have a problem with someone with arrogance that falsely pretends otherwise.
I would suggest you refresh your understanding of evolution, and most certainly educate yourself about mating behavior before you continue in this discussion.
Additionally, I am always amazed that I know more about sexual issues related to orientation than anyone I debate with on these sites. Isn't it interesting that someone who is so defined by their sexuality understands so little about it???
KiMare is starting to blather on incessantly, when all that was really necessary was the standard Christian response of:

<Kimare> "...NUH UH!..."

Hm.
As a science I think it can be objective, however, I agree that as a study it can be unreliable.
The variable depends on the honesty of the people involved and a psychologist's ability to remain unattached and neutral.
You are, of course, correct.

I am likely too hard on the subject. It comes from seeing so much corruption in these "studies" and wasted resources.

Why do you want to know?

Do you think(?) that telling us you got your friends to sign papers relating to your sanity, gives you credibility?

Christian psychologists are not objective.

Have you seen objective professionals and received treatment?

I'm thinking you haven't, as you admitted to having lied to them, just like you lie here, daily.

I understand, unfortunately, christians are allowed to become psychologists and have access to people's minds.

Scary.

That's all I have to say on the subject of music.
I like it all.
Thank you for your eclectic selection.

The violin piece was interesting you should check out the group Sephira, an international musical phenomenon which combines exhilarating violin duets with captivating harmonies and a palpable sibling stage connection.

Permit yourself to float along with this old standard, performed by 1000 pound Hawaiian.

Wow, some real judgment/bigotry there.

Seriously, you should take your own advice!

Now, why are you afraid to ask your family and friends?

There's no such thing as an "accidental pregnancy" when the two people aren't using contraceptives, just like there's no such thing as accidentally contracting an STD when found the same.

You'd think that people with no money to raise their own child would look at their options... They don't have the money to raise a child and sometimes no desire. If they have no contraceptions available, their option should be abstaining from sex until they do.

People need to be responsible for their own actions.

If "condoms costs a few cents", then why the hell should our tax dollars need to pay for them?

We reject them, because they have demonstrated a basic dishonest, and a very loose use of half-facts, partial truths and outright lies.
This is because their **agenda** is not facts or even reality.
Their **agenda** is to push their hideous religion onto the world-- whatever it takes.
THAT is why they are rejected.
That's exactly right, Bob. And that's why I pulled LBR up on those propaganda websites in the first place.
