probably because those living human beings are trying to wipe our country off the face of the earth.

It isn't ok to kill living, breathing human beings. Never has been. But that doesn't stop it from being done. It is in fact far better to kill a bunch of cells but that does not stop it from being condemned. Does that make it any clearer?

The bible in Ecclesiastes mentions a time to kill, and if 100 million radical muslims wanting to destroy our very nation isn't that time, then what is?

Why is it OK to let people with MS, Parkinson's disease, etc. suffer in agony when research using viable stem cells could result in a cure? What a woman chooses to do with a bunch of cells in her body should be entirely up to her, with input from her medical provider, family and spiritual leader.

Adult conduct issue in regards to guardian/ stewardship of children-
You've confused something here= RTL is a political term that stands for right to life (against abortion). Pro choice is a term for it's opposition, in favor of individual choices. Pro life is a bastardization of both intended to confuse.

Adult conduct issues- Pro war- If you're a pacifist, be sure to boycott calling the police when your house is being broken into because they carry weapons to serve and protect. There are times and places when use of force is called for, and other times when it's inappropriate. Let's hope we cultivate discernment.

Pro death penalty- There are places a human being can go with their conduct that make them beyond all rehabilitation. The acts they commit so heinous, so lacking in reverence for life, that they've rendered themselves wholly unqualified to exist in civilization.

You forgot to add euthanasia.

I highly doubt there are 100,000,000 radical muslims out there. That's nearly double the total amount of personel held by the top ten countries with the most troops COMBINED.

It's not OK to kill a living baby. You can't kill a fetus, because it's not an actual baby. I may be wrong on this, but I don't think rape is something you can recieve capital punishment for.
