prisonchaplain Posted February 10, 2014 Author Report Share Posted February 10, 2014 so compliance on something non religious people disagree with they should just accept?don't think that's gonna happen this isn't like a speed limit or no shirt no shoes no service thing, this is a far more serious issue, often going hand in hand with rights and the likeI suppose it also doesn't help that the arguments that religious people give mean absolutely nothing to the non religiousThe more important the issue the harder it is to reach consensus. Speed limits aren't that important. A lot of people may wish to go faster, but they pay their fines, or comply. It doesn't reach the heart like abortion.Yet, non-religious people expected us to fork up extra taxes to pay for them. My state taxed me to pay for abortions. My money went to kill babies. Mine. No pro-choicer is going to shed tears for me, because I don't want my earnings used to shed blood.Now you say non-religious people can simply disregard any pro-life laws. They don't need to comply because they don't believe unborn babies have rights.In any scenario where the laws of the land a pro-life, a super-majority has agreed. Very likely, a Constitutional amendment was passed--something that requries a ginormous super-majority. So, in all likelihood, we succeeded in bringing a good number of non-religious folks onboard with our coalition.I'm back to my original premise. As a politician, I may oppose abortion because the Psalms tell me that babies are created by God. To build a coalition, I'll need more reasons than that--some of them secular. It's impossible to build broad coalition purely on religious grounds. BUT, is your deciding factor in voting me out really that my ground motivation is religious? Or, is it that you don't agree with my politics? Would you really vote me out if you totally agreed with me, but my reasons were religious?
