    Swaying With The Tides of Popular Opinion Today

    You may want to be careful about "God's" involvement in Government. Because there are an awful lot of people who also want "God" in government who also think your religion is a cult. You might not fare so well if they get their version of God inserted. Just an observation. :)

    Were you paying attention 10 years ago?

    I was just teasing..... I think it is a great idea to be prepared.

    Swaying With The Tides of Popular Opinion Today

    I think the whole gist of this thread confuses me. It talks about our current war - in a part of the board that is about Gospel Discussion" -as a generally supported war, or at least this war, as part of the Gospel, against the evils of terrorism, that is based on another religions. If I were an Islamist, maybe a moderate one, who just wants to practice my religion, why wouldn't I see this as an attack on my religion? As a layman, why wouldn't I see this as a "we are right because we have the right God", Christian version of Jihad. Like I said.... I am confused. Could somebody clarify.

    If this is the case..... how come we are not currently at war with Iran? You do realize also that this rationale - a religious basis as it were - is the same rationale they use against us? So are you saying we should go out in a widespread, take no prisoners, religious war, and pretty much exterminate those Islamist nations? I doubt it. Please clarify.

    So basically for you, the only issue that matter when it comes to religion, is abortion. Interesting. Somehow I get the feeling you had your mind made up a long time ago and you were just looking for an excuse to trash this particular religion. But that is just me.

    No problem, I can make a pretty good case nobody is pro-life, just anti-abortion. It is just the nature of this contentious issue. It's been this way for 35 years and isn't likely to change. :)

    I am guessing here, but you probably think the abortion statistics are outrageous as well and believe that people shouldn't be so irresponsible...?? This we agree on. I am not pro abortion.... I am pro choice. I am also pro abstinence, with education about safe sex. Once one is an adult it is.... safe sex ,within a monogomous relationship. I am very adament about this. Especially since I have a teenaged girl. But I am also realistic. Protection is available. And if that unportected mistake is made, the family doctor has the permission (on record) to give a morning after pill without my "on-site" permission. I know kids... they won't say, "dad, I did the deed unportected and we need to get that morning after pill coctail." They will hope for that monthly visit instead. That is not functional.

    If it wasn't to you than the context is different. Describing my beliefs. versus what you believe. in a specific way makes it a contest, and sort of poisons the well. "See the Judgement Thread"

    Uh, I am not sure how to reply to all of this. I gave you the various polled opinions, about the various views on abortion, over a considerable amount of time. If you don't like them, than you don't. If you don't like my position, then you don't either. I am just showing what is "out there", and telling you what my views, and those of my peers are, is all. If that makes me bad in your view, I am okay with that. These differences are part of the fabric of society.
