You really need to read your scriptures don't you?

Cite me one place in the Bible where abortion is even mentioned, much less condemned.

Nonnegiotiable. This includes abortion, gay marriage, lobsters and slaves. Let's not forget about the lobsters and slaves.
8/16/2012 3:46:54 AM
Not they aren't. You just like to have someone to pick on. Cos you're a bunch of cunts.
8/16/2012 3:48:53 AM
They're so important that they're not in the Ten Commandments and Jesus never mentioned either subject.

How about READING YOUR OWN FREAKING BIBLE once in a while instead of just assuming that it agrees with your/your witch-doctor's prejudices?

*flips through Bible*
Nope, no mention of abortion or gay marriage.
Lots of stuff about loving your neighbour as yourself though.
By the way, I hate that phrase "non-negotiable". It basically means "do what I say and don't question it."
8/16/2012 5:00:35 AM
OK, please tell me where in the bible it says that abortion and gay marriage are prohibited. Or, have you even read your bible?
Also, while you're at it, please find that passage where Jesus says it's perfectly OK to be a dick.

Funny because in Numbers: chapter 5 God teaches the people of israel how to give an abortion.
8/16/2012 5:16:59 AM
These guys don't realise that abortion isn't an "important liberal platform"? Seriously, the only reason it's "important" is because fundies make it so.
8/16/2012 5:17:15 AM
Can you please remind us all the exact words of your messiah Jesus about both abortion and gay marriage ?
8/16/2012 5:21:10 AM
I assume these things that have so much scriptural support have, y'know, scriptures to support them? So it should be easy for you to quote a few of those verses?
8/16/2012 5:29:28 AM
There are more scriptures in support of slavery (and none against) than there are against homosexuality and there are..let me count...a grand total of 0 scriptures against abortion. In fact, early Christians didn't consider someone a person until they were out of the womb for 40 days. Even I (as a pretty big proponent of women's choice) consider them a person once their brain forms and thus don't believe any abortions should happen at that time. As for same sex marriage, there are verses against gay sex but there...let me count again...oh yeah, still fucking 0 verses against gay marriage. And while marriage often involves sex, as any comedian will tell you, that's not necessarily the case.

I wonder if ransomed is saying this as he's wearing a poly-cotton t-shirt while eating bacon wrapped lobster on his lunch break during a saturday afternoon.

"There are certain things about the Christian faith that have so much scriptural support that they are pretty much nonnegiotiable. This includes abortion and gay marriage."
Hosea 13:16: 'Samaria will be held guilty, For she has rebelled against her God. They will fall by the sword, Their little ones will be dashed in pieces, And their pregnant women will be ripped open.
1 Samuel 20. The tender and charming love story of David and Jonathan.
...hmmmmmm, must be Backwards Day in Ruptured Retards. ran(t)somed, I think it should read:
'There are certain things about Secularism that have so much Scriptural support that they are pretty much non-negotiable. This includes abortion and gay marriage. And as we all know, those are two extremely important liberal platforms.
So, as you can see, your 'God' is actually all for
abortion and gay marriage. Who says he can't change his mind about such things - unlike his supposed 'believers'? Because if he can't
, then he's not Omnipotent.
Enjoy your double

...or, ya know, not.
Abortion is just a lesser crime in the Bible; if you cause a woman to have a miscarriage, you have to pay her husband. If, on the other hand, you kill a human being, you are to be executed. See the difference?
Gay marriage is not mentioned at all, as far as I know, nor is the Internet or computers, or cars, btw. If one is a sin because it's not mentioned, then so must the others be as well. Log off your computer immediately and sell your car!
My husband could probably use the Bible to get a divorce from me, if he wanted. We have not been able to have children, and that is, as we all know, the sole purpose of a marriage. I have not fulfilled my purpose and could be cast aside.
No, abortion is not an "extremely important liberal platform", no more than driving on the right side is. Abortions are legal, end of story.
Gay marriage is a human rights issue; if I have the right to marry the guy I love, my friend ought to have the right to marry the guy he loves. In Sweden, and in many European countries he has that right. Many of those countries are officially Christian, in contrast to the US of A.

Didn't god rip wombs from women in Judges? And homosexuality is mentioned maybe twice at best. Do you even know your own fucking scripture? What things have scriptural support

seafood as in lobsters, crayfish and shrimp.

Pretty much all of religion is non-negotiable. How do you negotiate anything when it is not based on logic or reason to begin with? And that really is the biggest problem with religion: People of different faiths cannot negotiate their differences so instead they kill one another.
8/16/2012 8:37:15 AM
There's no scriptural support for forbidding abortion.

You are free to not marry someone of the same sex and to not get an abortion. The constitution does not give you the right to stop other people from doing those things, however.
