Cluny, you must be awfully bored to stalk me around EVERY SINGLE BLOG QUESTION and want an altercation.....

Why are you encouraging RAPESTS and child molesters, and pedofiles and fathers who abuse their daughters? That's the real question?

This has always been my with it.

\\No Monk, I'll stick with the Christians who believe in the 3 exceptions, rather than the puppy mill mentality. \\

kathr, why do you think that babies should be chopped up into little pieces if their fathers had committed rape or incest?

Christ is risen!

The Alabama law claims to be about life, but it isn't really. The pro-life position is that life begins at conception. In vitro fertilization clinics fertilize eggs, and keep the fertilized embroys in storage for future implantation. These embryos in jars are just as much conceived and alive as ones in a woman's womb. Curiously, however, the Alabama law does not prevent destruction of such embryos. The only explanation that makes sense for this dichotomy is that the law is not about preserving life at all, but solely about controlling women's reproduction, since it doesn't care about life if a woman is not involved.

Also, Alabama's claim to be pro-life is hypocritical, since the execute more people per capita than any other state.

No Monk, I'll stick with the Christians who believe in the 3 exceptions, rather than the puppy mill mentality. I also think with the extreme , if passed, we'll see a higher suicide rate, not to mention back door butcher shops.

Even in the OT, women were stoned for this or that and NO SCRIPTURE supports waiting first to see if a bun is in the oven.

Also during the Crusades and it slaughter....were expectant mothers exempt from the slaughter of war? So the hypocricy is just a little stinky for my taste.

Kathr4453 said, "even the Evangelical Right is taken back now by these extreme abortion laws exception to rape, or incest."

I would think that you would be willing to join with the Catholics in defense of LIFE!

It's ironic that Evangelicals, who complain about people "dividing Christ", are the ones who complain the loudest about the ecumenical movement, whose goal is to rectify that and un-divide Christ.

Cluny, I was answering Strongaxe. Never said the Puritans came over during Elizabeth's time. I just stated we are long past BOTH THOSE ERA'S.

\\the Catholic Church is a CULT. ..A CULT that wants to control this country. \\

kathr, I've been led to believe from your previous posts that you are too sensible to believe this--at least, heretofore.

Christ is risen!
---Cluny on 5/20/19

kathr, the Puritans came to North America at the time of James 1, NOT Elizabeth.

Christ is risen!
---Cluny on 5/20/19

We're long past Queen Elizabeth and why the Puritans came to America. NOW we live in a more dangerous time witnessing the formation of a one world church, ecumenical movement we were warned about for years. In the 90' s where we had the "Evangelicals and Catholics TOGETHER 1994" ... Then Ravi Zacharias championed the Christian and MORMONS Together..Sept 11, 2004........ALL TOTALLY AGAINST SCRIPTURE. BEWARE! More dangerous than any tax exempt thingy. Jesus NEVER said to compromise our faith with CULTS for the sake of unity. Paul Peter etc warned against as well.

Ecumenical Movement:
n a movement aimed to promote understanding and cooperation among Christian churches, aimed ultimately at universal Christian unity
---kathr4453 on 5/20/19

Strongaxe, this Government is already telling folks what to believe, and mandating morality. The Catholic Church is so steeped in our government, supported by Catholic FOX NEWS, with wanting to pass extreme abortion laws, strictly Catholic, where even the Evangelical Right is taken back now by these extreme abortion laws exception to rape, or incest. Pretty soon we will be back to bloodshed, as we saw in Europe, with Roman Rule and the inquisition. And as I've always said ...the Catholic Church is a CULT. ..A CULT that wants to control this country.
---kathr4453 on 5/19/19


The reason our Founding Fathers put freedom of religion in the constitution is because that was a new concept - none of the countries of Europe had it. As a result, there was constant persecution of religious groups who didn't run governments by those who did - e.g. Catholics under Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, Protestants under Mary, and Puritans under the Church of England that they considered so bad that they left to found American colonies - and that's only England. Also, The Inquisition, Calvinist purges, etc.

Our Founding Fathers did NOT want to repeat that bloodshed here. Would YOU want your government to tell you when and where and how and whom you can or must worship? I don't.
---StrongAxe on 5/18/19

Its just the way our government is set up. Scientoloogy doesnt pay either. John Oliver has dedicated one of his shows to this very subject, and legally opened up a church called Our Lady of Perpetual Deductions...from his studio audience...because anyone can do it. If you can get past the crude humor, its very educational. I think you can watch it called John Oliver..TV Evangelists, on YouTube.

YES its a horrible law we have in our country. Other countries simply do not let these CULTS in their country. We for freedom of religion sake cant do that. Were a nation of CULTS...
---kathr4453 on 5/16/19


Jesus taught the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". If you want the government to allow YOUR religion to be tax exempt, you must also want it to allow EVERYBODY ELSE'S relgion to be tax exempt too, regardless of what you feel about their religion. If you don't, you violate the Golden Rule.

Much that the Satanic Temple does publicly (e.g. posting statues in public places) is specifically done to show up the hypocrisy of Christians who think it's perfectly acceptable to put religious statues and Ten Commandment murals in public places, and push prayer and religious education in schools, but utter outrage when anybody from any other religion does exactly the same thing.
---StrongAxe on 5/15/19

Religion is religion is far as the government is concerned, and that's just as it should be. I'm sure there is a set standard that must be met by the applicant. There should be Impartiality in such cases, or the status should not be offered to any organization.

The only way that our churches can retain 501(c)3 status is to give every other religious organization--including the Satanic Temple that same status.
