I also know some of these people. And instances where the kids were manipulative in a damaging way to the parents. I had a colleague who once told me about how him and his sister used to have contests around who could make their mother cry first each day.I also know a few people who never got hit but their parents were so manipulative they came out damaged anyway.
You can be a "never hit" type of person and be a passive aggressive sociopath instead.
Because he and his religion are trying to force his beliefs on everyone else through force of law. I have no problem with his choice. I have a problem with forcing others to abide by his choice.
No, basing laws on science and reason are not the same as basing them on religious beliefs.Ahh but isn't this the conundrum? For those with different beliefs can they not say the same about the secular laws created? It is the same thing but being so close minded I would not expect you to understand.
On another note, if a pregnant woman is murdered and the accused is tried are they not tried for double murder? What's the difference?
Not threatened at all. I don't care what you believe. I care that you're trying to force your beliefs on everyone else.Fight to the death? With what, a kitchen knife? I have to assume you think guns are bad mkay.
I always find it interesting when people are so threatened when God is discussed. At the end of the day your choices are yours, I give two shits if you want to parish when you pass, that's your choice. We will have the answer when that time comes but I am very comfortable in mine.
If the Muslim/Scientology/Jehovah's Witness/Hindu/whatever is in a position to pass a law then the majority allowed it and you can accept it or move.No, basing laws on science and reason are not the same as basing them on religious beliefs.
Let me explain it like you're a 3 year old. Would you be ok if a bunch of Muslim law makers passed a law requiring your wife and daughters to wear a hijab? Would you be ok if Scientologists got laws passed that required to watch all of Tom Cruise's movies? Would you be ok if we passed a law that you couldn't get needed medical treatment, because your boss is Jahova's Witness?
I really don't care what you believe. I care what the facts are. You can believe whatever you want. I promise I'll fight to the death to prevent the Government from forcing anyone to get an abortion that doesn't want one, but that doesn't make your imaginary shy daddy book real, and if you actually bothered to read it, your sky daddy is completely down with murdering the unborn, infants and children anyway, so you really don't have a religious argument against abortion to begin with.
Keep your sky daddy out of other people's lives. Those that believe the same as you are also welcome to follow their beliefs and not have an abortion.
It's pretty simple.
The difference is your double murder law was passed by the same religious right wingers that want to ban abortion. It was just a stunt. Again, they don't actually care about the unborn, babies or children.
Explain to me where I "forced" anything. I shared my opinion and you became very unsettled.Not threatened at all. I don't care what you believe. I care that you're trying to force your beliefs on everyone else.
Imagine if you were forced to never eat beef again, because someone else believed they are sacred?
Again, no one is forcing you to get an abortion. No one is saying you can't believe in God, or Harry Potter for that matter. Your rights are protected. Leave everyone else alone.
