Any thoughts on that liberal news media CNN poll?

Yeah, and 85% or more of Americans would like to win the Powerball as well.
The correlation between the two; more often than not, we want what we can't have.

Failing to prevent a "murder" is just as terrible as committing a murder.
How many "babies in the womb" have you prevented from being "murdered" today?? In your lifetime?
I have seen some that I have taken part in saving (moms who changed their minds). I have even met a few of their babies when they came back to thank us. The rest, I am not sure. See, I pray and I wholeheartedly believe in the power of prayer.

At the end of the day, it was never ME who saved anybody. It was God who answered my prayers :)

No and no. I see you didn't understand the correlation. Should I draw it in crayon for you?
Yes please. A bold color will perhaps show this "correlation" much more vividly perhaps.

IOW, all you do is pray and hope for an answer, but you don't actively do anything to stop the "murder" of "babies in the womb." Is that it?
You're just as guilty of those you accuse of "murdering babies in the womb" for your failure to actively stop one.
And that makes you a hypocrite. It also proves my point; christianity = the ultimate hypocrisy.
Hmmm..points notnonly fly over your head, but the written word does as well.

Suggestion; go reread my post. SLOWLYYYYYY.

Hmm, my pardon, but I beg to disagree with you on your assessment of my motivations as they were...

I don't deny that I've been as obnoxious, garrulous, stiff-necked, and unyielding as many-another poster has been here.
That's been the way of this thread--hasn't it...?

That said, I'm not averse to attempting to find a common-ground, nor befriending those whom happen to be on the polar-opposite side of this, shall we say, impasse...?

I have, unfortunately, come the conclusion, that no such solution is within reach to date...

Back when abortion was illegal, it wasn't considered murder. It's not considered murder now.

I'm going to imitate Bitner here and say that my personal opinion isn't important.
My choice would be for the government to get out of the marraige business anyway. I think the government should only be able to offer civil unions to both gays and straights.
Okay, based on what you wrote it seems you think only religious people, who marry in religious institutions should get the designation of "marriage" and everyone else gets a civil union. Yet both are legally binding.

It seems like you just put all non-religious people into a lesser category.

The RCC does not have a body in congress where all laws are created.
Again, you would have to show me where the Church has changed LAW and eliminated abortion.
I never said they changed any laws. However, I'm certain that religious conservative politicians use their positions to try and affect laws in ways that align with their religious beliefs. I also believe the Church is doing whatever it can, behind the scenes, to try and affect certain laws, and I imagine the Church has some lobbyists out there, too.

Three things:

1. The RCC may not have an officially designated 'body' in Congress, but it assuredly has its tentacles entwined throughout Congress in the form of Catholic Congress critters,. These folks vote on legislation NOT from a position representing their constituents, but from religious convictions which may not be held by those constituents.

2. Religious freedom is the freedom to worship - it is NOT the freedom to remove, restrict, reserve, or ignore the freedom of OTHERS, who don't worship the same as you.

3. Laws won't ever eliminate abortion. Only elimination of undesired pregnancy, will do that.

In case anyone was wondering, desiring pregnancy cannot be legislated.

Fine, as a free people, we have the right to choose to face the Lord at the end of our lives to deal with what we've done (if he really exists). Given that right, we also have the right not to listen to the self-righteous as they strive to take away the right to choose.
Nope. No Lord nor God. Unless you'd care to impose one.

I'll bet the person/people who are targeting a foreign entity which has no special privileges in the United States government are themselves protestant or overtly ex-protestant. There's a lot of indications that the U.S. Is basically still a protestant country. Liberals like this have a special, seething, bloodthirsty, hate toward Catholics -- not any kind of enlightenment, more like an entitlement to claim themselves saved and everyone else dumb. They really need to spend time counterattacking their own new/improved versions of christianity or gutless agnosticism. I had to bring a women's rights rally at a Planned Parenthood to a halt some years ago, because the screaming, all-white (except me and 1 asian woman) sign-shaking, pro-choice/pro-healthcare gang was unintentionally scaring away terrified Latino and poor multicultural women and their tiny children who (a) were poor (b) didn't speak English, and (c) displayed appropriate shock and revulsion at the people yelling in their faces about how evil their religion is. Some cried.

So, "Protestants" aren't really "Christian" from your point of view?
What precisely is "gutless" about being an agnostic?
Why are "Liberals" the new "Jews" of the current "right-of-center" whipping folk; any ills of society, the media, the government, the economy, has been attributed to "Liberals" for the past twenty years.
What "versions" of Christianity do you feel don't "jell" with your own interpretation?
You do realize that there are Four Gospels don't you...?
A Women's Rights Rally, at a Planned Parenthood...? That sounds like total B.S., sorry to call your credibility into question here...

I know you don't support the death penalty. Do you support life with the possibility parole or life without the possibility of parole for convicted murderers? And do you believe any documentation of a woman obtaining an abortion is evidence of murder?

Yeah. The "most" in "all or most" means people want exceptions based on their own personal criteria. Pick and choose who has a "good enough" reason.

That's a shame, if true, but I wasn't there, so please don't blame me.

And I'm a deist.
