Thread Name: Abortion: Here we Go...
Subject: RE: Abortion: Here we Go...
I might have been; my mother conceived me out of wedlock and quite by surprise.

Such a sentiment, however, is unbecoming a human being, regardless of their belief system or worldview.

If you'll look at what I said in the DUI thread, I didn't take a pro- or anti-abortion stance at all. I was trying to represent the pro-life position and suggest that real communication will not take place on this issue until both sides can agree to accept the other side at face value.

In this thread I merely cursed the direction the discussion was taking when it got into ugly insults. Obviously "Guest Jesus" likes ugly insults. That's too bad. Perhaps when she grows up a little she will mellow out.

I like to think that maybe someday Americans will be able to discuss this topic in a rational and civil manner. Obviously they are not ready yet, and indeed even Mudcat, where the discussion is usually a notch or two above that in American society as a whole, doesn't seem quite ready yet for a civil and respectful debate on the issue. Which is really too bad, but hardly surprising.

Finally, what is campanalogy? I assume it's the study of campanas, but for the life of me can't figure out what those might be.
