It's a good one :) I actually read parts of it to my mother, who had mellowed over the years, lol. My favorites are a section on the rote memorization of prayers (with a quiz), and the one on "Father Whatawaste". You'll recognize your childhood.
I'll look into it then.

Eddie! Tom Tom, our resident expert, has already decided that you need therapy. The neighbors are the least of your worries at this point. Clearly something traumatized you at a young age. My advice, take or leave, is to find a reputable hypnotist that will be happy to try and help you (and help part you from your money).

You really hated your time as a Christian. Most of you proabortion pagans were Chritians that just hated all thouse rules aobut self-control and accepting God. Now you are damaged souls. You can only function when you are the center of your own little universe. All your 'faiths' seem to be about is attacking Chrsitians. Sad life for you.
Happy New Year Tom Tom!

See that's yours and your ilk's ignorance and purblindedness. As for me, while abortion is, hands down killing, and as such, tragic, I'd rather a woman kill her unborn and America remaining a free country, than have fascism and religious intolerance rule the country I help defend, and have woman, and men, be deprived of their constitutionally protected rights, by fanatic extremists who think their view of any issue, specifically aborrion, is the only view.
We know what happen to Nazi Germany; we know what happen to the Soviet Union; we know what happens to women, and the men who defend them in Muslim countries to name a few.
I don't know about you, but if having 3,000 women a day terminating their pregnancy is a grain of sand of an influence in keeping our country free, being it on. Xtians believe the clean soul will not go to hell. We Jews believe the soul enters at birth. So, from a religious stance, abortion has no downside with regard to the unborn's afterlife.
Now watch the religious talibangelists like sassy, no relevance, dum dumb to also name a few, have a field day twisting my post.
Of course they'll TRY to twist it, its all they CAN do. Never MIND that its a well thought out FACTUAL post.

Bravo CD - and to you and everyone, please have a happy, healthy and safe New Year!

Why not just herd women up like cattle for the "boys" to avoid "bar fights"!!!!!! OMFG!!!!

Continue on.....you make less and less work for me!!!
So, men should be content with waiting for a family until the women are good and ready for one, is that it? Gee, that's sounds fair.

You women are no different from men. Both men and women want to do their own thing in life and want the other gender to change their plans so our own plans can be fulfilled first.

What we all should try to do is compromise.

May I ask why you hate men?
did you ever have a good male role model in your life?
I'm not saying what others write, is right, but a family must have a head, and God made the head of the family, the man.

Are men doing a good job? No, not even close in many cases, but men are not all to blame.
We live in a world where men are cast as idiots.

Women were suppose to care for the home, and that is a FULL TIME JOB.

In a perfect home, the man works outside and provides for His family, and the woman works inside the home (which is just as important), to clean, raise kids, and be the keeper of Her house and home.

Yes men have messed up, but now instead of the family comming together at the end of the day, as a unit, we have both parents working, babies are dropped of, to a stranger to raise, and everyone comes home to a dirty house, with dirty clothes, and nothing cooked, plus dirty dishes.

We live in a mess.

That would be a perfect home , but since we choose to buy homes and cars we can't afford, we sell our family down the stream.

If a man is doing his job, and a woman hers, then you have a happy family, but where there is no leader, things get messed up.
Just like today.

Plus now we have factories, where men work with women, and the divorce rate keeps climbing.

We have forsaken God, for house's and cars, and wonder why we are in such a mess.

If men, and just men, were to fight for the right to shoot at any animal that comes into their yard, be it birds, squirrels, rabbits, deer, dogs, cats, etc., and the US Supreme granted them that right, should members of PETA try to persuade men to stop doing this and also, should members of PETA try to get the US Supreme Court to reverse their decision to give men this right?

If so, why?

Abortion is killing, even CD, says so.
It is the killing of innocence (which is murder)
Yet thankfull Jesus died for All Sin.
For many I wish I were wrong, butj after going from who I was, to who I am now, I have No doubt whatsoever, that God is real.
Many religions, in which people go through dead works and rituals, but I serve the only living God.
Let God be true and every man a liar.

For the "christian" extremists who think that girls and women were well treated in past American history, I think it's time for a little reminder of some facts you probably don't want to see mentioned on a public forum. Too bad. The fact is, we had an American version of Sharia Law in the 19th century. At the beginning of the 19th century in America --
-- Girls got much less education than boys did.
-- Girls' activities, especially for middle- and upper-class girls, were limited to "ladylike" pursuits.
-- Girls and women were considered naturally weaker and inferior to boys and men.
-- It was thought shocking, outrageous, and even scandalous for a woman to give a speech in public, especially to audiences of both men and women.
-- Middle- and upper-class women were expected to confine their activities to a "separate sphere" or their homes. Women were also expected to show the "virtues" of religious piety, wifely submission, and motherly domesticity. And they always had to be escorted outside their homes by a man.
-- Married women had NO legal rights, including to own property, keep their inherited money, enter into contracts, sign legal documents, or control what happened to their wages or their children.
-- Women who were single or had to earn money had very few job opportunities and were always paid less than men who did the same job.
-- Middle- and upper-class women were expected to wear layers of restrictive and heavy clothing, and corsets that were so tight that many women suffered health problems as a result.
-- Almost a million African women were chattel slaves.
-- Women were not allowed to vote.
-- Married women had no choices over their reproductive process. Any woman who got married was expected to produce children, whether she WANTED to be a mother or not.
In addition to the above, as if that weren't oppressive enough, conservative men of the 19th and early 20th century opposed every measure that improved women's lives, especially a woman's right to vote. THAT'S what the 19th century feminists fought so hard to change, and eventually succeeded in doing so, even though it took 72 years, from 1848 to 1920, to achieve that goal. The shame was that it took that long for women to GET that right to vote in the first place.
But .... but Ocean! That's EXACTLY how most of these freaks WANT it to be!

Except of course when it comes to THEM PERSONALLY that is.

Actually, women and men seem to be okay with being free to live their lives as they choose. I have attended seven weddings this year and at least five baby showers, even though I have a fairly small social circle. I'm sorry that you are having trouble finding a partner, but don't assume everyone else is in your boat. Chin up, buddy!

Yes No Relevance. That IS the point. Did you think ANYONE, including EVERY WOMAN THAT HAS ONE does NOT realise this?

Thank you for repeating it obsessively. Just in case ANYONE was unsure, lets make it even MORE clear, shall we?

Ladies and Gentlemen!

Be prepared for a NEWSFLASH!!

If you are planning to have an abortion, you are ending ****gasp*** YOUR PREGNANCY!

I know, its a shock, but that's what you're doing.***WHEW*** Now that we got that SPOILER out of the way, lets continue:

More - you're ending the possiblity of THIS pregnancy. You're killing the zygote, embryo or non-viable fetus that you either dont want to begin with, or for WHATEVER reason - cannot have.

But lets be clear, IF YOU'VE BEEN EDUCATED about it, you're making one of only three choices you have, and WHATEVER CHOICE YOU MAKE, ITS OKAY. You have the legal and moral right to make the best and most responsible decision FOR YOU.

Another newsflash coming ....... wait for it.......

IT AINT NOBODY ELSES BUSINESS WHAT DECISION YOU MAKE. YOU OWE NOBODY <<<let me repeat that>>> YOU DONT OWN ANYONE ANY EXPLAINATIONS NOR DO YOU HAVE TO JUSTIFY YOUR DECISION TO ANYONE, ESPECIALLY YAHOO'S LIKE THESE FOOLS THAT DONT KNOW YOU FROM ADAM AND WHO WONT BE AFFECTED IN ANY WAY BY YOUR CHOICE.

IF THEY DONT LIKE IT, FUCK 'EM!

Now phony religous idiots like No Relevance, Skanky, Knutbar, Inkstain, and others here like Lyin Lynne will tell you that you're murderers, you're going to hell, and anything else they can think that's hateful, spiteful, and negative.

See the second newsflash above and respond accordingly.

OH! And know, that LITERALLY millions of Americans have and will continue to fight for your right to CONTINUE to make your OWN MEDICAL CHOICES.

Feel free to try to gestate yourself you moron.

When you grow a womb and can gestate yourself, you get to make that call. Until then, deal with REALITY.

Its important to point out that trying to persuade women not to have abortions is not 'forcing women not to have abortions'. Do you understand that?
Also, when has our government ever 'forced' women to get pregnant? Women getting pregnant and then not wanting a baby is a problem that was forced upon on government. I doubt our government ever wanted to have to deal with this issue.
The US Supreme Court finally had to deal with this issue and in 1973 they decided to give women the right to murder the fetus/baby growing in their womb. Before this fateful decision, abortion was considered murder and was a crime. That abortion/murder is a crime is not an exclusive Christian dogma. Every religion and culture has it in their dogma that murder is a crime and most of them at one time considered abortion to be crime.
I feel sorry for all the girls and women who grow up in a nation that tells them that abortion is not murder/crime. You women have a self-assured confidence that you're doing nothing wrong when you have an abortion. I hope that one day you will step out of your Pro-Choice box and look at abortion with a different perspective, starting with the question 'could abortion actually be murder?'
Dude, really you need to do your research before making a statement concerning history.
Abortion has been legal in our history more than it has been illegal.

"Abortion was frequently practiced in North America during the period from 1600 to 1900. Many tribal societies knew how to induce abortions. They used a variety of methods including the use of black root and cedar root as abortifacient agents. During the colonial period, the legality of abortion varied from colony to colony and reflected the attitude of the European country which controlled the specific colony. In the British colonies abortions were legal if they were performed prior to quickening. In the French colonies abortions were frequently performed despite the fact that they were considered to be illegal. In the Spanish and Portuguese colonies abortion was illegal. From 1776 until the mid-1800s abortion was viewed as socially unacceptable; however, abortions were not illegal in most states. During the 1860s a number of states passed anti-abortion laws. Most of these laws were ambiguous and difficult to enforce. After 1860 stronger anti-abortion laws were passed and these laws were more vigorously enforced. As a result, many women began to utilize illegal underground abortion services. Although abortion was legalized in 1970, many women are still forced to obtain illegal abortion or to perform self-abortions due to the economic constraints imposed by the Hyde Amendment and the unavailability of services in many areas. Throughout the colonial period and during the early years of the republic, the abortion situation for slave women was different than for other women. Slaves were subject to the rules of their owners, and the owners refused to allow their slaves to terminate pregnancies. The owners wanted their slaves to produce as many children as possible since these children belonged to the slave owners. This situation persisted until the end of the slavery era."

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10297561

It was legal when the Constitution was written, which is probably why the framers didn't feel it necessary to include "the freedom to make personal medical decisions up to the individual" in the Bill of Rights. Maybe they thought it was pretty self evident. But then I guess they didn't know too many evangelical christians and what jackarses they could be.
