"Of course abortion is still legally practiced in the US dispite 8 years of GWB`s reign.

So you tell me which is worse... someone with real integrity who believes something different than you, or someone who says they agree with you but then demonstrates through his actions that he is a hypocrite?"

The president is not a dictator. He is only 1 branch of the government. He cannot do whatever he likes to, unless he has the support of the other branches. Bush appointed multiple pro-life judges to the court which is all he really can do.


And once again, morality does not have to come from religion. And by the way, the Christian church doesn`t say that everyone who doesn`t believe in Christ goes to hell. If you are a moral person, you go to heaven.

More made-up bullsh*t, I see.

"...and those Catholics who do so place themselves outside of the full communion of Christ`s Church and under the judgment of divine law."

If God really gave as much a sh*t as you claim he does, padre, he would descend from the sky (which is just as likely as him ascending from the ground, in my opinion; given the grander context of the whole friggin` universe, our `up` means nothing at all) and make a statement about it. Why doesn`t it *feel* as if I`m under divine law, padre? Because I don`t believe in fairy tales.

The whole faith story has only as much merit as one ascribes to it, and no amount of fear or guilt you have to instill in it to make people believe it will make it any more true, which is fortunate. Now stop wasting time and the people`s money and go do something tangible for a change.

Presumably this priest voted for GWB - a staunch opponent of abortion - and would consider those of his congregation who did so as well to be "devout."

Of course abortion is still legally practiced in the US dispite 8 years of GWB`s reign.

No, you`re just talking about Christians who never went to church. Adversity doesn`t change what you know to be true; it just amplifies what you already believe.

Amaqdrinker, if morals come from religion, then why are our prisons full of religious people instead of atheists? Clearly it sould be mostly atheists if they have no morality.

Im actually glad to see this thread turn inelligent with the exception of madest who is an obvious troll and you all fed him. My comments are directed mainly towards MS conservatives. If you don`t fall in line, then you dont need to strike up an arguement. That simple. I don`t agree with obama on a lot of issues. I voted for him based on the benefits his change in government will give me as a middle class american with household income of 75K and have 2 kids. I also agree with him on his stance abut the war in iraq which is something i feel more strongly about than any wedge issue. Fact is, no politicians touch the abortion issues on the federal level because thats something they dont want to soil their hands with... though this is my opinion and not based on hard facts, just observation.

dammit madest, why`d you go and have to say something like that? no, i mean that a murderer can actually change his ways, consequentially he would then be forgiven. and i make it a personal rule to never say who is or who isn`t going to heaven. as far as i know a man who claims to be an atheist could be right with god in his heart.

Just popped bck in while i let my fishtank fill...

Not really PWNED. If anything the site you gave just proves my point that he wants the people to decide not the government. Like i said, in interviews he would not condone abortions for his own family, but he feels strongly that it should not be up to the "all powerful government" to decide (i am paraphrasing here of course). So thanks for referencing a cite that it doesn`t look like you fully read... That in mind, im not disagreeing with you that abortions are bad. I am actualy on the same page, but i feel strongly that this should be voted on by the people and the only way to accomplish that is by dropping the issue to a state level.
NOW...
As far as this priest is concerned. I think he is completely in the wrong here. In fact he should be doing the exact opposite. He should be offering salvation for those who voted for obama if he feels that passionate about it.

Now you are just insulting women. I am anti-women who have sex who aren`t willing to accept the consequences. I am not anti-women. Your logic implies that you think all women don`t care about killing the fruit of their own union.

Believe it or not, there are women who believe in the sanctity of life.

My view on abortion comes more from my Libertarian viewpoints than from my religious ones. I believe that you should be allowed to do anything you please so long as it does not harm another person. I wear my seatbelt, I don`t think I should be forced to. I don`t smoke, I think I should be allowed to if I choose, etc. The problem with abortion is that you are harming someone else, you are killing a child. You can call it a womans choice, say it`s only a clump of cells or tell me the baby would be better off not being born, it doesn`t change the simple fact that having an abortion is killing a baby. You can label it how you wish, it won`t change what it is.

my brother accidentally got his girlfriend pregnant last year. fortunately they had been dating for a few years and they worked things out. they got married this summer and had the baby a few weeks ago. i cannot describe the joy that i see in my brother when he is holding his son. to assume that a man is just going to knock you up and run is unfair and sexist, and then to take that assumption and make it legally impossible for a father to have a say in whether or not his child will be born is disgusting.

What reason is there, then, for creating a life that you will only destroy, when there is every opportunity to avoid that?

If you cannot use contraceptives, do not have sex and doom the lives of the unborn that you will kill within their first few days of living.

Women should not have gotten pregnant in the first place then. God knows we have enough contraceptives. People who don`t want kids and don`t use them are just being stupid or lazy. They should not create life, decide they don`t want it, and kill the innocent human being. It is the epitome of selfishness.

Yaezakura, you have to click on the fact sheet of the website, as the cited website directs you to do

I do not like the stereotyping of conservatives going on here. Just because I am against abortion does not mean I am for the death penalty. I make my own mind up about issues, and most just happen to be conservative, but not all.

So to answer: I say NO to abortions
I say NO to the death penalty

I have difficulty with the collateral casualties in war, especially in the middle east. It is horrible that middle easterners have died in such numbers. Absolutely horrible. But I also have to consider what would happen if the wars had not taken place. Would extremist countries have thrown off the balance of the middle east, creating new havens for terrorists to launch attacks on America from? Would it cause steps towards dictatorships and totalitarianism? I don`t know. It`s a difficult issue

A man can walk away any time he wants. He will have to pay child support, but thats all. He`s not really obligated to spend time with the child, and there are ways of getting out of paying the support too. Women have no out of a situation that involves two people :(

Wow.

This one caused quite a bit of conversation. Some of it rational, and some of it nothing more than parroting empty rhetoric... on BOTH sides of the issue.

At the end of the day, it really should boil down to a States Rights issue. Let the people decide for themselves.

Me personally? I don`t like the idea of abortion being used strictly as birth control, but I will ALWAYS support a Woman`s right to make that choice for herself. I am seriously uncomfortable with the fact that the leaders of the pro-life movement are all MEN, and will never be in a position to have to make such a difficult choice. I am originally from Buffalo, NY and had to live through Randall Terry`s "Spring Of Life" circus in my city in 1992. It`s a woman`s body. Let HER decide what`s best for her.

And what exactly do you all think the first Christians did? Paul went all over preaching against the Roman occupation. He didn`t stop being a christian when he left church!

It is a religious person`s duty to effect change for the better in their world. Supporting morally acceptable candidates is part of that duty. It is in no way out of line for a priest to ask his congregation to live out their faith.

*from that pile, is it still a pile, and you of course say yes. By that logic even 2 pebbles is a pile of pebbles.

That is how we must look at the life of unborn children. If you can say a fetus 8 months into pregnancy is alive, how can you say that a fetus 7 months and 30 days isn`t alive? How can you cutoff a baby`s life with a certain day? You can`t

There can be no fair cutoff for life except conception.

It was actually 93% of abortions that take place because of irresponsible parents: http://www.nrlc.org/news/2000/NRL02/how....


I am not trying to impose my Christian faith on anyone. We have separation of church and state for a reason. But this is not a matter of religion, this is a matter of morality. Atheists are still opposed to murder, rape, etc., and not because of religion, but because of morality

Abortion is morally wrong for people of all faiths. It should not be a woman`s choice to play God and decide if a baby lives or dies.

With abortion, the pile paradox comes into play. It goes like this: You give me a number of rocks that you think makes a pile. I ask you if one rock is subtracted from

and as for abortions. I will get one if by chance i fall pregnant again. I am taking every avenue NOT to, but due to my last pregnancy my daughter had some difficulties and so, if i were to fall preggers again i will die. I know a lot of anti abortionists scream "thats ok, its a medical reason" but no matter how you look at it, its still an abortion - something you are supposed to be dead against

amagdrinker, you`re male, so you really can`t understand this. And you will never truly be able to. To the male in the situation, pregnancy is "hump the girl, deal with potential consequences 9 months later". The girl, meanwhile, has to live with the consequences every moment of every day. During those months and for weeks after birth, she is not physically able to lead the life she`s used to. Pregnancy essentially disables most women.

I can almost guarantee there are no women who get abortions without serious thought. It`s not a pleasant process, and there are emotional hazards everywhere (which is why most abortion clinics offer counseling).

People make mistakes. And a girl shouldn`t be punished for the rest of her life for a mistake made in the heat of the moment, or because contraceptive methods failed. She has a right to live her life. A living, feeling human being is worth far more to the world than a undeveloped mass of cells.

and i also agree with you about conservative`s indifference about the poor, it`s distgusting. i`m not sure if more welfare will fix it but a lot of conservatives could not care less about poor people and it makes my head spin.

whoa ghost of me. i`m not talking about the war in iraq, definitely not an ideal war. i agree with you about the killing of innocent civilians in Iraq. to be honest the whole situation was probably inevitable and i have mixed feelings on the war as a whole but i was not trying to say that the iraq war was an idealized war. not even f*cking close

"In the all of them, he feels it`s not the federal government`s responsibility to impose limits on a woman`s choices regarding abortion."

which means he supports roe v wade and is pro choice, very pro choice as that link illustrates. and you`re second paragraph is exactly the mentality that i just described.

absolutely necessary?
You really think it was absolutelly necessary for us to stick our noses in their business?

Do you really think its necessary to blow up a building full of civilians to kill 2 bad guys?

Its like, when two friends are fighting, and America is that thrid friend going "Stop fighting guys" then beats both of them up for fighting.
It doesnt really do any good.
Let them blow each other up for all I care.

Seriously, people dont even seem to care about these babies after they are born...
After they are born no one could care less.. all these pro lofe people. The vote against welfare benefits that would help feed this child. Or they vote for capital punishment or crappy gun laws that could end up being that this kid they fought so hard for to be born could get killed in a gun accident
They dont give a damn.
Its just about getting the kid out of the wounb.
After that if that kid is in a apartment building they have to blow up cuz of terro

"a few key bullets
-Voted against banning partial birth abortion
-Rated 100% by NARAL on pro-choice votes in 2005, 2006 & 2007
-Voted NO on prohibiting minors crossing state lines for abortion.
-Voted NO on notifying parents of minors who get out-of-state abortions."

In the all of them, he feels it`s not the federal government`s responsibility to impose limits on a woman`s choices regarding abortion. And he`s correct in that assertion. Just because you`re Christian, doesn`t mean everyone is, and your religious values have no place in law. Obama understands this even when he personally disagrees with abortion.

And especially on the last count, it`s no business of the parents what their teenage daughter does. Just because she`s not 18 doesn`t mean she doesn`t have a right to privacy. No girl should have to face the wrath of potentially bigoted parents for what is a very personal decision.

i can begin to understand if you look at abortion conceptually too. in certain situations (mother`s life is in danger, rape, severe drug abuse(crack babies)) it is as justifiable as a necessary war, but the fact of the matter is that`s not even what many pro-choice people are advocating. they wish to debate the very life of the child and suggest that if this may put the family in a financial hole or interfere with future plans then an abortion is justified.

Taking the life of innocent people who`s country is at war? SURE! WHO CARES?"

ideally war would only be fought when absolutely necessary and only between soldiers, so in a conceptual sense, war is justifiable. abortions are looked on by many as a way to avoid inconvenience.

Now, i`ve said my peace, and i am exiting this conversation on this note. I am not for abortion, but i voted for Obama. In the 30 years that roe-v-wade has been on the books, all the politicians including the far right-wing messiah george bush (who i voted for in 2000) have done NOTHING to over turn it, because no one wants to upset the nation by doing one thing or another.

Now, i have to go clean my aquarium, i bid you good evening.

Christ teaches us to live a life glorifying to God. To be respectful of the laws of the land that do not instruct us directly to go against God. If the law permits others to do something "unChristian" we aren`t instructed to interfere.

I don`t believe that many (most?) of the Republicans` policies are inherently Christian insomuch as following Christ`s teachings. e.g. A "good Christian" wouldn`t get an abortion, but that doesn`t mean we should attack and demean those who do. My Bible has teachings of love not condemnation.

1) Obama is NOT the closest thing you can get to pro-abortion, you might want to check your facts on that subject bucko. He stated in an interview he thinks abortion is morally wrong, and he thinks that a mojority of women also feel that way, and the reason he want`s to protect roe-vwade is because he doesn`t think a small group of men in washington should be deciding the issue

2) give me quotes from JESUS not his followers later in the books, that he is OK with the death penalty... I want scriptures from either mathew, mark, luke or john...

A- The death penalty is biblically justified, even under the teachings of Christ.

B- The vast majority of conservatives are not "FOR going into other countries and slaughtering the people". Our current government went into Iraq. They didn`t ask the peoples permission. That doesn`t make all who are in that party war mongers.

seriously, the character count thing is broken...

Here`s my point, people like you are so indoctrinated that NOTHING is more important than trying to overturn roe-v-wade that you completely overlook that fact that WAR and the death penalty is NOT sanctity of life... Seems to me that there was this jewish guy who once said "Let those of you without sin, cast the first stone" when the DEATH PENALTY was presented before him. Yet it seems to me the democrats are more focused on preserving the sanctity of life according to christ than republicans...

Let`s be clear on this subject, it`s christian of you to NOT vote for obama because he thinks this should be a states right issue and not a federal issue in which YOU would get to vote on it. Yet you also believe it IS christian to vote for the party that is FOR the death penalty, FOR going into other countries and slaughtering the people of that nation because they don`t agree with their "you with us, or against us" foreign policy. Nearly 100,000 civilians murdered by "conservative republicans"Citation in 6 years in 1 country. This does not include the iraq military count. Obama speaks of peace, unity, and doing right for your fellow citizens, and THAT is not christian values? While republicans go to WAR, Torture, and put to death as many people who don`

I just pray that those old liberal supreme court justices can stay alive for 4 more years. 3 court appointments by Obama could take 30 years to reverse.

We don`t need judges that legislate from the bench. We need judges to interpret the constitution, which gives all human beings (which includes unborn babies, if you`ve ever taken biology or spoken to a doctor) the right to life

A basic tenet of Christianity is the sacredness of life. Religion means living out your faith. True Christians do not sit in church listening to lessons of love and compassion, and then go out and vote for the complete opposite of that.

Really ilovetristan? So if I want to go kill a 1 month old baby, that`d be fine with you? I mean, it`s my choice, right? You shouldn`t be able to stop me from taking another person`s life, right?

The 40% of Christians who voted for Obama are not real Christians. They are not living out their faith, and Obama`s other issues cannot outweigh his acceptance of the 40 million babies who have died since roe vs. wade. And don`t give me crap about the safety of the mother. 95% of abortions are done because an irresponsible couple have sex and don`t want to accept the responsiblity. So a kid gets killed

Ah, Pascal`s wager, the single most-used and most-debunked argument ever. Have you stopped to consider than even if there IS a God, it`s not the one you worship? What if you die and come face-to-face with Zeus, or Odin? I`m willing to bet they`d be easier on an atheist than on someone who worshiped the WRONG God.

"It`s his church, he can do what he wants." Sure he can, and he can lose his tax exempt status for being divisive in favor of one political party over another.

" And plus, the way I see it, if someone believes in God and there turns out to be none, oh well. If you don`t believe in God and there IS a God, sucks for you." People don`t realize there`s a third option, God turns out to be evil and you walked into a trap and get tortured for eternity because He`s sick like that. It may sound offensive but from a philosophical stand point its just as likely as God turning out to be good or not existing at all.

Let`s be clear, he doesn`t support abortion on a moral level, but he does intend to protect Roe-v-wade against a constitutional amendment. He AND McCain both agree that this should be a states right issue. Why should we as a nation and as citizens support this decision? Here`s why:

By denying the federal government control and making it a states issue, state will be forced to put that kind of legislature on a ballot that can be voted on by the people. Now, this means putting the issue BACK in the hands of the people, and not in the hands of a couple of people who don`t want to upset one side or the other of the issue. In doing this, if YOU don`t agree to abortion and the issue comes up in your state, you can vote rather or not you would allow it. If for some reason the state votes to allow abortion, you were outnumbered. If you don`t like that, you are given the opportunity to move to another state where you can be around people who do share you POV.

Yes, Obama is such a horrible person to be for the sin of putting a living, breathing woman`s health over cells that would have eventually become a fetus that would have eventually born into a baby. I don`t like abortion, nobody does (except a few far-left freaks, I suppose) but one of the main reasons I`m pro-choice is because of idiots like this. And he`s denying them forgiveness? God needs to come down here and smack him.

Why is it, that some sins are viewed so much highly important than others?

I hate political churches, I`m English and so it`s not the same over here but it`s still the reason I left my church.

I have this friend that`s homophobic. Used to drive me up the wall. I don`t mind people having their opinions if they have reasons to back it up and are open minded to other peoples views too. Otherwise people are never going to learn anything.

Anyways, her `reasoning` behind believing that acting on gay thoughts are wrong is because it says so in the bible. O.K. Fine. BUT she thought it was ok to sleep with her boyfriend, before marriage. Apparently they are completely different.

I don`t see how. If your reasoning behind not liking something is because the bible says it`s a sin then how can you just dismiss something else the bible says is a sin just because it suits you?

Furthermore, what about all those people that Bush has killed with the wars that he has issued??? Body and Blood for him?
