Oh. How many do you know?
Its removing a portion of someone's body without their consent for no real purpose other than religious purpose. The health benefits are nominal at best, and there are risks associated with it.
No, I'm not a troll.
You are not allow to have a Bible there, either, much less thump one the way you like to.
Probably for a Maury episode.
I don't think that applies to Christianity. I've never met any Christians who think they are, in any way, avoiding pain and death.
I think Rome would have fallen anyhow, but do thing Christianity is to blame for some of the troubles and sure as hell some of the scientific hold back. I do find alt history interesting, however. I think you would see some very interesting things a bit past this timeline really.
Me being in la la land does not negate the fact that I do this because I feel like it and so do the other thousand or so members of my church on rotating weekends. I am also very certain I am not the only one. My church back home had much more community outreach programs than this church I am now attending.
When it costs upwards of $2000/mo for a 1BR apartment in places like California and Seattle where are the minimum wage earning retail clerks, cashiers, coffee baristas & etc. supposed to live? When nobody can be found to take the jobs companies turn to automation. That's nice, but machines aren't consumers... and our economy runs on consumer spending. If we eliminate the lowest tier of consumers in our society, the bottom rung of our workforce, the next highest tier becomes that bottom rung.
"It is the stereotypical appeal to ignorance."
Neither of them, since it is a copy of a mish mash of ancient religions, myths and literatures. Traits of Hermetism and Neoplatonism are obvious in the Old Testament and in the NT the Neoplatonism, Orphism, Heraclitus and Apollonius of Tyana's theophilosophy!
Yet he was perfectly fine selling a wedding cake for a dog wedding. That is a strictly forbidden practice in the Christian faith, and if this guy was in any way consistent in his beliefs, he'd only sell to virgin brides and never-divorced couples. He'd fact-check all his shit. But he doesn't. He ONLY refuses to sell for same-sex couples wanting to marry.
but the foetus had no say in being there in the first place.
Considering that's not what evolution says, your argument doesn't work. Nothing about changing one animal into another.
Alright sad little troll girl. You are blocked for vapid attempts as well.
Are you saying you're outraged now?
Yes, but it was pre constitution and the Constitution very clearly left such references out. And 'all the thinkers', you mean Jefferson? He was the sole author of the DofI and was not a Christian.
Usually I'm not big on white guilt. But considering what Lyndon Johnson did to the black community it was horrendous. The black family made it through slavery, Jim Crow laws and were doing fairly well considering. Then they became a casualty of the war on poverty in 1964. Lyndon Johnson snidely said we will have the black vote for the next hundred years.
Its like breadcrumbs, fingerprints etc they suggest truth. Points you the way. Its not forced, exactly how God chooses to operate. We don't have to follow, but presented. We know where it leads though..to a creator God. We pick and choose the circumstantial evidence. Its not until further examination where its confirmed...a relationship us exactly the same way.
