For example, I find the insistence that late term abortion is infanticide to be both dishonest and insulting.
And very slick pivot, by the way. What happened to the 22-week cutoff? Would that have anything to do with my post on NYS RHA?

Re: Anyone else horrified?

I pride myself in using well thought-out, rational arguments based in facts. And my counter is that your Christian worldview leads you to interpret facts and evidence in a certain way, with the end result being that when you drill down to the bedrock your views on human reproduction and abortion ar...

Re: Anyone else horrified?

Wow! Your true colors are shining brighter than the sun Spare me the pearl clutching. I sometimes wish that people who make their decisions based largely on what I regard as superstition would opt out of the political process, and on occasion I even forget myself and blurt it out, but I also suppor...

Re: Anyone else horrified?

The President has consistently insisted that Obama gave him a garbage economy and that he gets complete credit for all gains since he took office. If he gets the credit for the gains then he gets the blame when all of those gains melt away amid fears that he's incapable of leading us through a cris...

Re: Immigration reform (for Byblos)

The GOP would never go for that, Paul. They're in the minority on the most important issues of the day. If there were national referendums on gun control, overturning Roe v Wade, marriage equality, universal healthcare, protecting the environment, and addressing climate change, just to name a few, ...

I don't know but maybe a referendum, a vote, for issues like abortion and immigration, would be a great idea.
No, it wouldn't. Generally speaking, majority rules runs counter to conservatism, at least here in the U.S.

Re: Immigration reform (for Byblos)

I go back to my earlier comment then, what's the difference between that and declaring all human beings who are unable to care for themselves inviable? The answer is there is no difference at all, according to your own definition of viability. Enough with the sophistry. You know the difference. Tha...

Re: Immigration reform (for Byblos)

very extreme. It's not even abortion, but really a debate on infanticide. Nope, it's really not. Anti-abortion activists are just lying to make it seem that way. They're doing that because the reality is that they're the extremists and if they permitted honest, open discussion that would be apparen...

Re: Immigration reform (for Byblos)

If viability is determined by the fetus' ability to survive outside the womb then viability ought to also be the ability to survive independently outside the womb, since otherwise it is entirely and utterly dependent on external care. Careful with the mental gymnastics. You're going to pull somethi...

Re: Immigration reform (for Byblos)

And it matters NOT Dr. Condic's believes since she basked everything she said with facts. No, she didn't. That's the point. Her position is based on her interpretation of the evidence. I just provided you with a completely different interpretation from a person who is just as knowledgeable as Condi...

There are rising of atheism is on the raise so will Christianity be decline? I mean people my age are don’t really believing in it. This has a lot to do with abusive and the fact of why so why do we need to suffer. Some of it also has to deal with how we do worship now. This is incoherent. You may ...
