    A Hypothetical Situation, with real world results:

    a 14 year Old Girl, craves male attention from having no father, gets pregnant by a boy hanging on the street, boyfriend disappears. She is scared, and now just starting to show, confused and upset,

    Mom does not know yet. She lives in the Projects with Her Single Mom. Barely enough to survive for two of them. She is in a delema.

    So She Heads to  a Clinic for possible Abortion Counseling. On the Way in she Encounters a well meaning Church Group holding signs, being force full, obstanet, forcing her to turn away. Many Adults in a group versus 1 child.

    So She retreats, and the Church folks celabrate, calling it a win for God..?  But is it? is it really?

    She returns home, waits two weeks to get up enough nerve, and tries it again, this time she gets in the door but finds out she is two weeks past the drop dead date for an abortion.

    While the Church Celibrates its Victory at Shoney's on Sunday , Lets Now look at what really happened.

    Yes the Church prevented a death? But they Just created a bigger problem.

    If Those folks were going to step in front of God, and do this, where they really prepared for all of the Consaquence?

    Would they Go the extra miles, and go get that Child, pay for what is needed, help her with all the proper care and Doctors expenses. Keep her in School? Help when the Child is Born? See to it they all assist and teach her, so the child can be raised well, have all it needs to Grow, develop, learn and become. 

    Will they do all of this? Are they prepared to Handel the result of their actions

    See, they Just took on  a God size problem.  But Are those folks really prepared to handle the entire problem, Provide a God size answer?  Not just do the easy part of stopping Her from entering that Clinic. Are they really Helping or Just playing a Game for Keeping score for their own self gratification or Salvation, to say they are doing Gods Work?

    I submit to you ladies and Gentelmen,  that We tend to step in for God, (self-appointed) with no after thoughts of what we leave behind. Are we really entitled to do that?  Really?

        You are responsible for what you create with your actions Apostle, or has God Beliefe also removed all your concience?

        you make up your own religion, as you go!

      Goes to show the ignorance of the religious folks and their individual inability to keep their relationship with their god personal, and out of other people's life.

      Nothing new here.
