    I miss Coffeesaint!

    I quit smoking. To make that possible, I had to quit stress as much as I could. To do that, I had to get away from this forum. To do that, I had to stop even looking at it, as just coming by makes me want to post. I do apologize for my rudeness in just leaving without a single word, but it...

    Is it OK to abort a gay baby?

    Then it becomes impossible to answer rationally. You are asking me to make a judgement in a situation in which I have no right to judge. My personal judgement would be that no, she does not have sufficient reason to abort her fetus, but again, my opinion makes absolutely no difference: she...

    Is it OK to abort a gay baby?

    No, the question has nothing to do with what the unborn baby may become. The question is, does the presence of a gay gene merit abortion, and so what matters is the genetic information that is present before the baby is born, not the future behavior of that baby. She aborts it in the...

    Is it OK to abort a gay baby?

    Even in seeking a peaceful end to a debate, you can't be gracious, can you? By the way, Troxel v. Granville did not establish that right you claim. It simply upheld the striking of a statute that allowed too much of an infringement on parental rights. (emphasis added)...

    Is it OK to abort a gay baby?

    Rights are imagined by people and agreed upon by societies; government may seek to limit them, but not if the government reflects the society it serves. Whether our government does that or not is a different argument. The Constitution represents our agreement about which rights we do have; our...

    Is it OK to abort a gay baby?

    No, society has most definitely held the individual interests of its members at heart. Radical Islamic societies act the way they do because they have a specific purpose: to ensure that the greatest number possible of their members reach Paradise. But we are speaking of American society, which...

    Is It A Lie To Say You Support The Troops But Not Their Mission?

    So you didn't understand my point about the troops not being their mission? Or you don't agree? So if I had a son, who desperately wanted to be a heroin addict, I would have to support his wish to be a heroin addict in order to say I love my son? What happened to "Love the sinner and hate the...

    Is it OK to abort a gay baby?

    No, government exists to protect rights; people take rights away from each other. If we did not have government and laws, then we would be living in an anarchy, in which might would make right, and anyone could take away anyone else's rights for selfish purposes as long as the selfish one was...

    Is she being ordained or something?

    Her level of self-congratulation should be equal to the level of crap she has to take for being a female Democrat representing San Francisco. So I'd say she is justified in spending the next two years doing nothing but partying; any work she does in that time will be seen by me as generous of her.

    Is It A Lie To Say You Support The Troops But Not Their Mission?

    Of course one can support the troops but not their mission: the mission is not the troops, the troops are not the mission. Ask any mother whose child does things the mother doesn't like: does she still love the child? Generally, the answer is, "Yes, but I don't like what he/she is doing."...

    Insanity Plea

    I have to give this kind of a weasel answer. Insanity is defined by the majority; none of us perceive reality in quite the same way, but we share enough elements of that perception that we can communicate and relate to one another. It is impossible to objectively state how far a person may...

    Is it OK to abort a gay baby?

    I'd like to make a counter-claim, if I may. Society exists in order to protect the individual rights and freedoms of its members, and to give those members the best possible chance at a fruitful and productive life. In order to do this, society must protect some of its individual members from...

    Is pregnancy a conscious choice?

    Legally? Yes. In my view personally? Of course not, but that's just me. That's why I said I don't have to use the term, even though I think it applies perfectly well to a fetus, which in my view, is not a human being. Please don't jump all over me for that: it is just my subjective...

    Is it OK to abort a gay baby?

    Removing the fetus from her body is her choice. Its death is her fault. The fact that it has to die to be removed from her body is not her fault. Stop screaming at me.

    Is it OK to abort a gay baby?

    If the right doesn't exist, you have no point. Thanks. But you don't have that right, so the point is moot. Legally, it sure as heck is. No it isn't. Legally? No it isn't abandonment; women do it all the time when they give their children up for adoption or divorce their husbands and...
