You have nothing better to do then spew harmless garbage to a woman on a thread, that simply pointed out that politicians want woman to carry dead fetus/(babies if it makes you feel better) full term * by law*. Sure God might have something to say to you as well.  (Apr 3, 2017 | post #121391)

Now that it's on the table we take it this far: http://m.sfgate.co m/politics/article /Lawmaker-Miscarry ing-women-must-car ry-dead-11041280.p hp Now states are saying women should carry a dead fetus, as an abortion should not be an option. Forget about the mother, she is expendable no?  (Apr 3, 2017 | post #121365)

So long as they stop claiming the 1.2 billion Catholics from their number of Christians in the world.....JS  (Oct 23, 2016 | post #89173)

Continued..... Post 4. I refuse to be a Christian who can’t see the image of God in people of every color, every religious tradition, every sexual orientation. I refuse to be a Christian who demands that others believe what I believe or live as I live or profess what I profess. I refuse to be a Christian who sees the world in a hopeless spiral downward and can only condemn it or withdraw from it. I refuse to be a Christian devoid of the character of Jesus; his humility, his compassion, his smallness, his gentleness with people’s wounds, his attention to the poor and the forgotten and the marginalized, his intolerance for religious hypocrisy, his clear expression of the love of God. I refuse to be a Christian unless it means I live as a person of hospitality, of healing, of redemption, of justice, of expectation-defyin g Grace, of counterintuitive love. These are non-negotiables. Yes, it is much more difficult to say it these days than it has ever been, but I still do say it. I am still a Christian—but I refuse to be one without Jesus.

Continued.....post #3 I refuse to be a Christian who lives in fear of people who look or speak or worship differently than I do. I refuse to be a Christian who believes that God blesses America more than God so loves the world. I refuse to be a Christian who uses the Bible to perpetuate individual or systemic bigotry, racism, or sexism. I refuse to be a Christian who treasures allegiance to a flag or a country or a political party, above emulating Jesus. I refuse to be a Christian who is reluctant to call-out the words of hateful preachers, venomous politicians, and mean-spirited pew sitters, in the name of keeping Christian unity. I refuse to be a Christian who tolerates a global Church where all people are not openly welcomed, fully celebrated, and equally cared for. I refuse to be a Christian who speaks always with holy war rhetoric about an encroaching enemy horde that must be rallied against and defeated. I refuse to be a Christian who is generous with damnation and stingy with Grace. Continued.....  (Oct 23, 2016 | post #89166)

Continued.... Post #2 It now aligns me with bathroom bullies and politicized pulpits and white privilege and overt racism, and with bigotry toward so many groups of people who represent the “world” I grew up believing that God so loved. There are things that used to be a given as a follower of Jesus, that no longer are. For far too many people, being a Christian no longer means you need to be humble or forgiving. It no longer means you need a heart to serve or bring healing. It no longer requires compassion or mercy or benevolence. It no longer requires you to turn the other cheek or to love your enemies or to take the lowest place or to love your neighbor as yourself. It no longer requires Jesus. And so the choices are to abandon the idea of claiming Christ altogether to avoid being deemed hateful by association in the eyes of so much of the watching world—or to reclaim the name Christian so that it once again replicates the love of Jesus in the world. I am trying to do the latter. Yes, I am a Christian, but there is a Christian I refuse to be. Continued.....  (Oct 23, 2016 | post #89164)

I Believe In:

God, Family and Self. I believe in mankind - even though at this moment it's hard, the oddest people will surprise you when they are put to the test. We all deserve the chance to show our inner light. We must stand up for the innocent that have no voice - be that man or animal. Your word and action's mean the world in someone's eyes, don't let them down.
