Rick. . . you are clearly morally superior. You condemn dogs biting at bears and espouse the practice of tying a man to a tree so as to be killed by a bear. No, I don't really expect you to see the problem.

Well, I note that you are admitting that the dogs DO bite the bears!! But pal - I NEVER said anything about a man being killed by a bear! All I agreed to was how would anyone like to be tied to a tree for someone to train his dogs by being attacked by them - not killed. I do believe that is what Dee was trying to put forward. Being morally superior? Well thank you for the compliment - but again, you are clearly wrong in how you interpret these posts pal ! Respectfully Shawn, the problem is...

Respectfully Shawn, the problem is that obviously YOU do not see where I'm coming from - it's bear baiting... NOT abortion in this case!

Rick Tomkies . . . Dee suggested tying a man to a tree and letting a bear have at him, to which you replied, "A great idea!" And I'm saying it's knee-slapping hilarious when a moral reprobate can be so deluded as to think himself morally superior.
And, no, I didn't admit the dogs are biting the bear. I said that is what you are condemning (whether it is happening or not). You really should look into whether a local community college is offering a course in logic. In a mere 14 weeks, you...

Rick. . . I had no right to call you a moral reprobate and I do sincerely apologize. I don't know that about you. In fact, I suspect you would find the methods of abortion very troubling. Again, sorry for getting carried away.

Shawn you keep referring to a fetus in the womb as a child. It is not a child - it is a fetus and by condemning abortion, you are wanting to go backwards in time. My guess is that you are a religious person. Making a general statement here but it does seem that because some people believe that an invented deity told them that the animals were made for people, they take that literally. Goes hand in hand with people who are against abortion of a fetus - not a child - a fetus.

Wendy, God is not an invented deity, He is the Creator of heaven and earth and of you, as well as the animals and He tells us in the Bible to take care of His creatures. When you have to face Him one day it will be too late for you to eat you words.

Wendy, first I am not religious. I was until I saw hypocrisy in ALL religions. Anyone that worships a god that allows the pain and suffering of innocents that he has given the ability to feel pain, fear, suffering along with joy and love is a DISGUSTING GOD and gets nothing but disdain from me. BUT fetus or child or baby, it's semantics. The LIFE inside a human is human. The LIFE inside a feline is feline. To kill either is to kill what is inside them. The lack of respect for ALL life is why...

Until EVERYONE can respect ALL life, societies will continue on as they are now. INNOCENT LIFE DOES NOT DESERVE TO BE KILLED ... no matter what your "call" it at the time of its murder.

Thank you. Abortion nuts are so fixated on this one topic it blinds them to all others. It goes beyond being opposed to abortion, it becomes a fixation, and obsession. ANd that is not healthy.

Shawn Meyer

  • Cecilia Barrie

You are right Rick. It doesn't have anything to do with abortion. I was merely pointing out how strange it is that people get all upset about dogs barking at a bear but don't have any moral objection to homicide. So far, people have raised the subjects of God, southerners, southern attire, guns, bullfighting, killing rednecks, and the list goes on. If you want to limit the discussion strictly to bear baying then jump on everyone's case, not just the guy who raises a point about moral proportionality.

Shawn Meyer

Patricia Flynn-Williams . . . that is utter nonsense. When my wife was pregnant, no one came up and asked her, "When is your fetus due?" We all know it is a baby, that she/he is living, and that when someone kills her/him it is an act of murder.

Shawn Meyer

  • Deborah Hans

Reason supports me entirely. I became pro-life in large part because the science of embryology required me to reckon with the fact that unborn children are ontologically indistinguishable from born. When I stopped running from the facts is when I became pro-life and when I found a new compassion in my heart for all human beings. To care nothing for the smallest and most defenseless is savage and dehumanizing.

Shawn Meyer

My wife and I adopted a little girl who was languishing in the foster system. The case worker said she had been shuffled through different homes her whole life. I asked, "How many in 6 years?"

And one doesn't need female anatomy to call murder what it is. Incidentally, my wife has a fully functional uterus and she concurs that abortion is murder. Argue with her, I guess. I may not have a uterus but you don't have a heart.
