      What does STFU mean?

        Plug it into google and wiki will tell you. Be sure there are no kids around when you do this.

      Thankfully we have never practised birth control, and only managed two children, three miscarriages and one ectopic, and we are not even Roman Catholics. smile

      I would say that what the majority of voters want is irrelevant, unless they are all Roman Catholics... just a thought.

      The bible teaches..."no sex before marriage" .But the weakness of the world have allowed sex to be engaged in at anytime. True Christians do not give in to pagan principles.

        How about telling the religious right to STFU all together? They speak as though all things are bellow them, as if they are the authority on being proper. The biggest problem I have with the religious right, is that they proclaim their justness, yet they grow rich on the backs of the working public. They would just as soon let us starve, as long as their money's coming in. To them, religion is an excuse to make a gain.

        That's pretty hilarious. Considering the number of Christians that get pregnant before they get married. I suppose those are all immaculate conceptions?

        ...or reality and facts, evidently.

      So, the majority of voters in America want the ethical and moral views of 25% of the population to be silenced. A bit worrying I would say.

    Ok. Can we vote on telling the rest of the religious right to shut up about abortion?

    If you want to be a Catholic then those are the rules.

      The Catholic Church does not make the laws for America.
      If you choose to be Catholic you can follow their rules (note that not all Catholics do follow all the rules and many get fed up and leave).
      If you choose to work for a Catholic employer, then you accept the conditions of employment of your employer. Which happen to be extra restrictive because you work for a Catholic employer.

      But I agree with the OP and Emile R.

      Our country has real problems that have nothing to do with with people do in their personal sex lives.
      Let's focus on those.
      But wait -- the economy is actually showing signs of life.
      What can we do to keep the focus on fear and dissension?
      It's like clockwork. Pull out the old divide and conquer social issues.
      Abortion. Gay marriage. Now birth control.

      And we the sheeple allow ourselves to once again be distracted.
      :rolleyes;

      Hmmm. Last one I read showed his approval ratings back up above 50%.

          Either way, it's on the rise. I would assume that has more to do with the pitiful choices the Republican party wil be offering than anyone's thoughts on the economy.
