What would the world be like if everyone was heterosexual and ALL pregnancies were brought to term? Ive always wondered... if abortion and homosexuality were somehow banished from our society in order to appease the 'fundalmentalists', would this create the rightous world they desire? Any thoughts?
It would be a better world, yes. Maybe then we could focus more on curing diseases and helping each other with the things that naturally happen, instead of fighting the attempts to make immorality lawful.
ummm...to be honest, even if you did manage to resolve those issues, you'd still have a society filled with problems. NO SOCIETY in world history existed without having some flaws within their system. Therefore, it shows you that even throughout history, no matter what form of government or customs you choose to follow, there's always going to be flaws. Therefore, even if you did resolve all this, people are still going to find things to complain about it.
Seriously, the only government I ever saw that was perfect, was on Star Trek. Where it showed various cultures working together for the common good, while EVERYONE worked for no money or compensation. In their world, people only do things and excel at careers because that's what they want to do. No money or praise involved. However, you want to know the flaw in that society? It's not real. If it was, then we'd all be happy. however, it's not.
I read your profile. It seems like you would have a lot to right about why settle on this. By the way I am not against homosexuality but I do believe that abortion is absolutely wrong unless there is a crime associated with the pregnancy I guess that makes me half a Fundalmentalist.
Well guys, Im new here and just wanted to pose a theoretical question...but uh, thanks for the input. You know..Ohma, Im kinda shy about getting started so I figured Id try something like this for beginners, then gradually delve into something deeper and more involved. As for your remark sneak, my moral compass is my own business. Ive always been the sensitive type, which has proven to be a serious handicap in the past, as Ive tended to take things personally. But I wont do that here...I know that folks often forget their manners when in front of a keyboard..say things they wouldnt in person. Deep down I guess we all long to be accepted and belong, dont we? With that in mind, maybe each of us should consider who's on the other end of that screen, and what their situation might be, before making judgements.
Oh well since they're nothing I guess that means we're nothing. So then our opinions just don't matter then do they? Lets break out the mob rules! Death to babies and death to Christians, Hmmm, this almost sounds kind of islamic.Yikes!
Youre making assumptions again, and somewhat hysterical ones at that. I am for abortion and I have nothing against gay sex..and in my private musings Ive wondered what the world would be like without them..thats all. As for sodomy, whatever two consenting adult humans do in the privacy of their home is none of my business. Abortions? An unfortunate neccessity in this world. Dont think they should be used as birth control, dont beleive in the partial birth ones...but I do think they should remain legalized.
And frankly I dont get your sarcasm, Ive not been rude to you. Is it your Faith that compels you talk this way, or is it fear? Do you suffer from low self esteem, or in the words of Malcom X, " Willfull Ignorance " ? Its possible to debate an issue without resorting to the tactics youve used.
Take a quick view of this song, sneak and ohma. Its very funny, with a great message, and sung so sweetly by a beautiful girl. It pretty much epitimizes my feelings right now. The link is right below can ya tell im new at all this computer stuff?
Ok sneak..ya say thats how we role in this arena , well thats cool. I just gotta get used to it and not be so-overly sensitive. As for your o-so-condescending remark Ohma? I get it now....so im gona stop being a crybaby from now on, and Im gona throw shit right back at ya when the need arises. In the meantime, youd be doin me a big favor if you clicked on this link above...it pretty much speaks for itself.
Uhh sneak, didnt you just call me a faux bear with a faulty moral compass? Is that how you defend your beliefs, with sarcasm, petty insults, and thinly veiled anatagonism when engaged in a -as you like to call it- A Serious Discussion?
Anyone willing to promote sodomy and/or defend it is a few sandwiches short of a picnic. How could any compassionate person stand by and let our babies be killed? You're promting death sentence for the most innocent! Hell, you don't even know what you're saying. I'm very sorry for you.
I am Pro-Life but not against homosexuality either, I do not believe that abortion should be used as birth control, however there are some circumstances that I believe an abortion should be allowed but it is certainly not because someone wants to get rid of a pregnancy because they were to lazy to use birth control, just my opinion.
One of the few sensible replies in this whole thread AEvans, IMO, and thanks for it.
It's obviously personal opinion, everyone has their views, but to me abortion is murder and there has to be a damned good reason for it. In the UK, the law states that abortion may be carried out in women less than 24 weeks pregnant, unless the mental or physical health of the mother is at risk. Unfortunately the 'mental' part of the wording is where abortions get carried out on demand. Two doctors have to sign to say the mother would suffer severe mental consequences, and usually the second doctor does not even see the mother! A doctor was struck off just last week for arranging for her daughter to go to the continent for an abortion at 32 weeks! That is criminal!
"Your" sense of right is seriously flawed. You take a hateful interpretation of a single version of a collection of books and use it to harm others. You even threaten bodily harm to those who playfully disagree with you.
from wikipedia : Adrenaline junkie is a term used to describe somebody who appears to be addicted to epinephrine (endogenous) and such a person is sometimes described as getting a "high" from life. The term adrenaline junkie was popularly used in the 1991 movie Point Break to describe individuals who enjoyed dangerous activities (such as extreme sports) for the adrenaline "rush". Adrenaline junkies appear to favour stressful activities for the release of epinephrine as a stress response. Doing this may result in physical harm because of the potential danger. Whether or not the positive response is caused specifically by epinephrine is difficult to determine, as endorphins are also released during the fight-or-flight response to such activities.
I'm saying I've known several people who just love to get in an argument (any argument) just to get angered and adrenalized! fun fun fun!
I know plenty of Gay people who are anti-abortion, you seem to be trying to suggest that all homosexuals are pro-abortion, my experience is that many of my friends who are gay are anti-abortion, I think you need to get out and speak to people rather than make assumptions for a sizeable number of the population.
I would like to take credit for this thought, but I heard it first from a news pundit.Consider...For progress, societal change is necessary, and inevitable, (I think), but - the larger the society, and the more...
In the US, We are allies with many countries. China is one of our biggest allies. Here is something I do not understand. We liberate countries like Iraq where they have no democracy. Yet, In China, they control child...
