Who appointed you to determine who are "far right religious freaks". I am an atheist, but stand for the rights of anyone to believe and practice their religion, without insults from the peanut gallery.
Originally posted by KellyJayAgain, you cannot kill something that is not alive. If it has no Brain activity, then it feels no pain and is not alive. If it does not have brain activity, then it has no soul or spirit. It is not human LIFE until the latter months of pregnancy when it could survive if born. Especially in the first five months of a pregnancy. Life support is shut off on human body's that have no brain activity every day because they are not ALIVE! They are DEAD! Even though they still have a heart beating.
Again, it is human life at its earliest stages, we were discussing at what point pain came
into play, you now want to bring in brain activity, all these things are part of the process for
human life. Which ends when you have an abortion, if this child was wanted by the mother
it would be called a loss, a great loss. If it isn't wanted by the mother, then ...[text shortened]... r doesn't mind seeing it killed off through abortion, it most certainly is not
about the child.
Originally posted by whodeyThat's what they do with brain dead people if the person or family's donate the organs. There would be no such thing as heart transplants if it were not for brain dead people. Clearly life is not defined by a heart beat. It is defined by brain activity.
Does that mean we can take your organs?
Originally posted by KellyJayYou cannot kill something that is not alive. The earliest doctors have ever detected brain activity from A fetus is at 24 weeks. Therefore, it is brain dead. Life begins at birth. Get over it. I am not pro-abortion; however, in cases of rape or where the life of the mother is threatened by the pregnancy, the choice should be up to the women and not some far-right religious freaks. There are also other rare cases that I feel are acceptable.
Un-biased sources are difficult to find, but even 20 stops some from happening if you were
to only care about pain, but not about what it is you are killing.

“I really think the Vatican ought to reconsider keeping Francis as the Pope in the future. I really don’t know how that whole papal thing works, but if they have the ability to fire him or something, they should put some serious though into that option. Otherwise, at the rate he’s going, he might even decide to run in the 2016 U.S. presidential election"

I think the guilt of being one of the bought and paid for scum of the far-right got to him. If you watched the Pope's speech yesterday to congress, Boehner was fighting back tears through the whole speech. I thought he was going to lose it at the beginning of the speech as he actually did start crying. Boehner is the only one who the far-right had go ...[text shortened]... oon now. At least Boehner has a heart. And God says that is what we will be judged by.

Given that Francis has basically laid down the roadmap for America to follow, a roadmap Obama would have been crucified for had he been the messenger, how will the GOP fire up its base, going forward?
Originally posted by AThousandYoungMaybe, I do not know. Either way, It is clear he has respect for the Pope. It looks like he is Catholic.
Boehner's Catholic lol
Originally posted by PhrannyI agree. It is sad but true these days. I myself dislike most today who call themselves Christians . The fact is, most of them are NOT Christians. You know them by their fruit; or lack of I should say.
We can only hope that anyone who believes in God and an afterlife based on one's actions during life will heed the Pope's words. It has been my personal experience that those who claim to be spiritual, agnostic or atheist tend to be more ethical, kind and compassionate than the theists I have encountered.
