Quote# 86677

I submit that contraception is the worst scourge to ever afflict mankind, the costliest by far in both blood and treasure, absolutely ruinness to women in particular and mankind in general. Since it’s acceptance, divorce rates have soared along with pornography, STD’s, homosexuality, exploitation of women, abortion, breast cancer and now government attacks on freedom of expression. Paul VI was particularly prescient in predicting government pressure in HUMANAE VITAE in explicating the Church’s beautiful teaching in this matter.
Using contraception in the marital act is akin to flipping a hand grenade with the pin pulled into the heart of a marriage.

Yet more "contraception causes STDs" nonsense.

And then, they wonder why the joke exists: 'Caution: 38% of people are caused by accidents.'

Contraception= preventing people from being born. How is that "costly in blood and treasure"? Think how overpopulated the world would be if everyone got married at sixteen, and every time the man came, it HAD to be inside his wife and she HAD to have a child, which is what the Christians seem to want.
The other things listed are either nothing to do with contraception, existed before it, or, like STDs, are actively reduced by it.

Your crocodile tears have moved absolutely nobody.

Oh pish. When the first people entered Pompeii after its destruction by Mount Vesuvius they were astonished to discover the sheer amount of pornography; scrawled on walls, artfully depicted in mosaics and used as instructive diagrams in the city's many brothels. Brothels that actually outnumbered the bars.

And this was in 79 CE, which is concurrent with the writing of the New Testament or even considerably pre-dates it.

This is a huge pile of correlation not implying causation. So what if contraception is against the Church's will? That's why we live in a society and not in individual bubbles. Can you honestly say that you agree with everything your government has done? What with the torture in Gitmo and rendition of foreign nationals and all? If not, then you shouldn't pay taxes to support them either. You're only getting pissy about they particular violation of your beliefs because it's got 'God' involved.

Man that sounds horrible. Have you seen those reports about pirates and global warming?

Ah, a typical prolifer. They care about the fetus, not the actual person. Good to know.

This William J. Quinn is so far off it, I actually feel sorry for him.

It must be really awful to be him. And he has to put up with himself all day every day. Poor guy, that's terrible.

My mother has taken birth control pills since I was a very young child. Her relationship with my father is still strong and loving after nearly 30 years of marriage.

That's because this argument is full of shit.

Something tells me that Mr. William J. Quinn will never find himself in need of contraception.

[exploitation of women]

The bible did a pretty good job of that.

I have just read the other comments on that site and now I have to go and repeatedly bash my head against a wall until the pain disappears.

A Clue salesman called, he thinks you should get one.

3/28/2012 7:34:08 PM


This is so incoherent and idiotic the writer couldn't even auto-correct his misspelling of "Ruinous"!

3/28/2012 8:04:45 PM


Now, as ever, it's misery or vice. Your choice.

3/28/2012 8:41:43 PM


This, ladies and gentlemen, is a wonderful example of histrionics.

3/28/2012 11:35:33 PM


Ah yes, the beautiful teaching of a church that practises and condones sexual offences that in the real world would earn the culprit a very long stay in prison.

3/29/2012 12:14:40 AM


Something tells me that you either don't have any idea how people work, how contraception works or even how cause and effect work at all.

3/29/2012 1:20:02 AM


Condoms prevent STD's and pregnancy. Nothing more.

Porno has and will always be sold because humans leik sexytimes.

Homosexuality...hmm...How about we let people be people, and not judge them because they like the same gender? Contraception doesn't really matter for a same sex relationship, unless one person is dirty or unknown and you want to protect yourself.

Exploitation of women...Yeah, no. Contraception actually goes against that, since it empowers women with the ability to choose who to fuck, how often, and if she wants kids or not.

Breast cancer? Really? Are you fucking retarded?

Wait, don't answer that...The answer is right there.

Wanna know something that's been cited as leading to increased divorces? Viagra. Yep, supported by the Catholic church and all, Viagra has been directly linked to increased divorces and STDs.

How about that? Oh, well, it's not like anyone thought the Pope or Catholic priests knew shit about anything anyway. Right? What? They did?!

3/29/2012 4:42:39 AM


They won't be happy until everyone has twelve kids and we're all starving to death because of overpopulation.

3/29/2012 6:56:33 AM

"ruinness" ??? Oh, you mean ruinous! I see.

3/29/2012 10:39:16 AM


What the hell is so hard about minding your own fucking business?

3/29/2012 12:57:22 PM


Correlation, causation... not the same.

Frank: I have a modest proposal that'll take care of all that.

If that grenade analogy has any validity at all (and it doesn't) then permanent sterilization must be like dropping an atomic bomb into a marriage. Yet mine survived my husband's vasectomy - in fact, it got even stronger. The only thing that could ruin it would be my being forced to take care of seven screaming brats alone because he was busy working three jobs to support us.
