Same here.

In any case, I think we should all know better by now that we shouldn't generalize one group of people.
All Christians don't hate gays, all gays are not flamboyant, all christians are not "pro-life", all atheists are not for marriage equality for gays and lesbians/"same-sex marriage" as its commonly called...the list goes on.

New topic.

I've been thinking through that more and have reconsidered my stance. Honestly, at this point, I say let them marry and let them adopt kids.
:shoc ked:

It is nice to know all my work didn't go to waste.
I may not be able to change everyone's mind but it doesn't hurt to state the facts and hope people will begin to see the light.

Something has to explain the idiocy and the hatred for women.

Hatred for women?

The pro-choicers say we all hate women. Haven't you heard that before? It's a tactic used to divert attention from the fact that abortion is a violent act.

Funny....49% of American women are pro-life. Only 43% are pro-choice. The rest are undecided.

"Hate" may be strong in a lot of cases -- disreagard for women, lack of respect for women, dislike of women.....they work too.

Not all pro-lifers are hardcore religious people. But all hardcore religious people are pro-lifers.

Waht disgusts me the most is that people (mostly liberals) think its ok for a woman to be sexually irresponsible, to go around with her legs spread open, and then claim she doesnt have time for a child and therefor must get an abortion. Hey Honey, if you dont want kids, keep your F'in legs closed

What disgusts me is people like you who think all women who have abortions are single, promiscuous and don't use birth control. And who think that if you don't want children you shouldn't have sex. And nothing anyone can tell you will convince you otherwise because it's all a part of the disrespect you people have for women in general. In your mind, no "good" woman would ever seek an abortion. You couldn't be more wrong.

Not all pro-lifers are hardcore religious people. But all hardcore religious people are pro-lifers.
Just as not all conservatives are stupid, but all stupid people are conservative.

Does anyone know if medical abortions are allowed in Muslim countries, and if not allowed, what the punishment is?
