Yes, it is possible.

Then you have my answer to your question. ;)

What do you mean?

Really just what I said. If you want to call me something, say I'm pro-education.

I'd say if one isn't pro-life, and one is a Christian, it would be inconsistent with Christianity's teachings. But choosing to be pro-life isn't the barometer for faith in Christ.

I understand what you mean.

But why don't you like the term pro-life or pro-choice?
What issues are clouded with labels?
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me.

Pro-life in war or in regards to the death penalty? Pro-choice on parents killing their children? They're merely labels which tend to obfuscate or distract from truths in the matter, while perhaps claiming some kind of morality.

K,

Stop equivocating already. You're pro-life. It's a term used for the position one has regarding abortion.

Stop being obtuse. :mrgreen:

Rick, next time you call me obtuse I'll seriously shoot you in the head and plead the second. ;)

You're Australian. Aussies don't have guns, remember?

Only right-wing, fanatical, Americans have guns.

Besides, obtuse fits you. y:-?

Please, whatever you do, DO NOT SHOW THAT LINK TO MEL!!!

You'll ruin her entire anti-gun argument. You Aussies are supposed to be the smart, lefties, with the gun laws that don't allow gun ownership. Frankly, I'm shocked and chagrined that you Aussies don't abide by your gun laws!

Next thing you know, Australia will have McDonalds and Pizza Hut restaurants popping up everywhere. You're like wannabe Americans. You poor souls. :shakehead:
