Except that unlike electrician's work, sexuality is a normal human function used both for breeding purposes and for pleasure. You want your Church to control that function as part of its invasive patriarchy and to force its unnatural rules on people instead of allowing those people to make their own best decisions about their sexuality.

That's what theocracy is - rule by religious zealots who seek to control the lives of the governed. It is among the worst forms of governance possible.

IOW, you'd prohibit people from making their own repairs based on their own natural desire to fix things, and turn it all over to a professional organization which does these things for money, right?
That says a lot about you...:)

You have sex outside of marriage there are risks....

You cross the street jay walking....there are risks....

What part of being faithful to one person gets to you?

Do as thou wilt? That would be satanism....and would be another "religion" controlling you....

Seems you get controlled one way or another....

Deliberately tricking someone into killing themselves is murder.

I believe there's a commandment about that. One you think applies to zygotes because they're human beings and one you think doesn't apply to Africans.

Also, you seem to be equating a person having free will to them being controlled by satan.

Tell me, who told you to make that post? Was it free will?

As a slave to sin no one who is not freed from sin has no real free will....

And "tricking" someone into killing themselves would be those who promote an anything goes approach morally and physically based on animalistic pleasure and a lack of self control....

By the way twisting what is good into evil and what is evil into good is exactly what satan or an agent of satan and/or sin and/or this fallen world would do in order to fit anything into their ever changing relative morality....

What or who sets YOUR standards of morality?

I set my own. That's what morality is.

The question is who sets yours? After all, I'm pretty sure the bible doesn't even mention contraception.

Not talking about "partial abortion," not concerned about what you think women OUGHT to do. I'm talking about the right of a woman to decide whether or not to have a kid, or abort an unwanted pregnancy.
You're mental, basically. Pretty much a typical anti-choice fanatic.
woman should only be able to abort if she was raped or to save her life.If she didn't want a baby she should have used protection.What about what the baby would want who is speaking up for him or her.They is always adobtion they are a lot of good people who do want kids who would gladly take them.I'd adopt one myself before i'd see it murdered.so any girl out there let me know i'll adopt your baby.....

I picked your elderly relatives because they might be vulnerable and an easy target, just like uneducated people are to be indoctrinated by dogma.

I'm pretty sure most people would end up drinking bleach if they were told it's an amazing new drink that is best enjoyed if you hold your nose when drinking it. At least they would if someone in a dog collar told them.

The Bible is filled with principles....and through God those principles are applied to life....

Now, okay....you set your own....nice....so did Hitler....so does Putin....so does your neighbor....who is right?

On a scale of relative morality....Hitler's morality is just as equal to yours....

Unfortunately the naive mind of a progressive liberal is such that they will believe nearly anything....when your basic foundational philosophy is moral relativity and when truth is relative....you can convince them that killing themselves is actually helping humanity....

Don't believe me? Look at the radical environmentalists....PETA....

Strange.

Both you and hitler advocated killing millions of people because of your crazy beliefs.

I on the other hand advocate telling people the truth and letting them make informed decisions.

I can understand why the church would hate that.

If you want to call it that to absolve your conscience without taking responsibility for your actions....and your morality or lack of that has been shown to create the very problems your accusing me of supporting....

Can we pray in school?
You can pray in school.. And there are regulations written into the 2nd ammendment that are conveniently overlooked... As are the parts of the teachings of Christ that are usually overlooked by the likes of you.
