    Let's look again at the consequences of anti-choicer logic: Salvadorian woman conviction for murdering a still-born baby upheld.

    If you have a miscarriage you're a criminal and you should be in prison, apparently. This poor woman will be in jail for 30 years because of this. So much for being 'pro-life' when your beliefs, enacted in law, rob someone of their life.

    This forum contains rules in an attempt to promote decency, the spirit of which you trampled all over and which you have no desire of rectifying. The internet is the perfect place for me. Where I find a miserable liberal hating on and fuming about the inconvenience of facts and evidence I am perfectly free to tune you completely out, as if you literally don't exist. It's even better than turning up the radio to drown out a person with the same mentality as you seem to have, who is profanely yelling at traffic. Well, that is at least true for now. I heard on the way home last night groups of leftists are suing judges over net neutrality, otherwise known as special pleading, which would be an attack on the very freedom that allows me to ignore you.

    I gave you a chance, but since the love of decency apparently does not abide in you, we are done here.

    What rule(s) specifically do you think my swearing breaks? Report my posts if you think they break the rules & if you're that fed up of seeing (already censored) swear words. Otherwise you're just moaning. See what happens - maybe the mods will agree with you. I won't challenge their decision.


    You mean "facts and evidence" like the existence of a soul? :rolleyes:

    Your posts in this thread have been a master class at projection and the use of double-standards.


    If you're going to tune out people who disagree with you then maybe a discussion forum - a place where you encounter differing ideas and challenge your beliefs - isn't for you.


    If you want to claim noisy pollution-spewing vehicles moving at high speeds as a metaphor for your conduct in this thread then hey, better you doing it than me.


    In what sense is not wanting the rich & powerful to monopolise control of the Internet 'special pleading'?

    If he isn't willing or able to answer, could someone else cut in here and try to explain this to me?


    Thanks for that expert keyboard diagnosis, Doctor :)

    The fact that you're moaning about seeing already-censored curse words shows you're just looking for any excuse to avoid continuing this discussion.

    David T,
    You have done, exactly what a person does who, just will not understand. I hope you are not one who willfully refuses to believe. Maybe your problem is eisegesis, which means you read into a Scripture what you want it to say, and cannot understand what it is actually saying. Consider what the Bible days about people who cannot understand, even when it is explained to them, Acts 13:41.
    In my last post to you I wrote much that the Bible says. But that is not understood, by the world. Remember, Christians are not part of this world, John 17:13-17, 18:36.
    If you look closely and meditate on what the Bible actually says, you will understand that The New Covenant, that Jesus instituted on the night before his death is, in some ways opposit the Mosaic Law Covenant, because it is, positive, where the Mosaic Covenant is negative. Under the New Covenant you Must DO, Matthew 7:12. And under the Mosaic Covenant, it says that you must NOT DO, Exodus 20:7-17.
    The Mosaic Covenant was forgiveness by WORKS, The New Covenant, forgiveness by FAITH!!! Anyone under the Mosaic Covenant was under the Curse of sin and death, Galatians 3:8-11. Jesus said that none of the Jews obeyed the Mosaic Covenant, John 7:19. The Bible tells us that if you break ONE of the Laws of the Mosaic Covenant, you have broken the whole Covenant, James 2:10. That means you stay under the law of sin and death, Romans 6:23, 2Corinthians 3:1-9. Under the Mosaic Law Covenant a person was not completely forgiven his sins, The were rolled back, with God looking forward to the time that Jesus would give his life to Completely take away sins, sins that could not be forgiven under the Mosaic Covenant, Acts 13:37-39, Hebrews 10:1-4, 9-14,16-18.
    The Mosaic Law Covenant ended with the death of Jesus, Romans 7:6, and Paul, who was a Jew said several times that he was not under the Law Covenant, Romans 6:14,15, 1Corinthians 9:20.
    Are you under the Mosaic Law Covenant? Have you done any work on the Sabbath, have you traveled more than 3,000 feet on the Sabbath, or cooked food on the Sabbath??? Remember the Bible Sabbath was our Saturday. If you have done any of these things, the penalty was death. If you sincerely want to obey the Mosaic Law, you must beg someone to stone you to death, Exodus 31:12-16. Agape!!!
