“I point the finger of blame directly on employers & their administrative (almost all male) lackies. If you'd all take a 24% wage cut for the next 50 years... I don't think you'd like it, but tough. Oh, and by the way, we'll be doubling the cost of your health insurance, and halving the cost women have been paying.”

“So you'd prefer to force all taxpayers to support the children born as a result of no access to birth control? Can we get your sworn promise to do so? If not, then keep your nose out of how a woman chooses to control the growth of her family, since she will, ultimately and in the eyes of the court, be responsible for any resulting children while men are free to simply disappear from the picture entirely... unless, of course, they need viagra at some point.”

“no. i'd prefer people learn to take care of themselves and not rely on the government to be their parents. if you're going to choose to have sex, then you should be expected to either pay for contraception yourself or be prepared to pay for a child if you get pregnant. why should either of those things be a burden on me? i love the false dichotomy from the left that if i don't support "free" birth control, that i must somehow be in favor of spending more money on welfare babies. i say we need to start scaling back how much our country spends on welfare. people need to start being more accountable for their actions. if you can't afford to at least pay for contraception, then perhaps sex is the last thing you should be doing.”

“Hiding it from your child will simply be seen as you being dishonest and a hypocrite. I'd much rather just be open and honest about it, and use the opportunity to educate my child without any of the hyperbolic propaganda (in fact, I educated 2 sons in this way). Both have tried cannabis, as they would have anyway, but neither one is a regular user of cannabis.”

“I'd hide it because a child is not prepared to keep the fact secret, and as the pot smoking parent I could have that child taken from me legally.”

“Flash flood potential problem existed long before the Waldo Canyon Fire. Terracing, building swales and ponds to hold overflow, riverine improvement, riparian habitat restoration, planting trees along streams to keep water cold, etc. are much better plans than just handing out sandbags and sitting around praying with Focus on the Family or Family Research Council. These things are also ways to create local jobs for local people, fighting poverty. Planning for disasters means taking concrete steps, not just holding meeting after meeting, promising to do something while the mayor of Colorado Springs spends our money on the unwanted sports stadium his developer pals will profit on. Free marketeers are killing people, not helping them.”

“Blame Focus on the Family (located right here where the flash floods occurred) for not praying enough... surely that would have prevented this. NOT.”

“How many more senseless tragedies like this have to occur before people change their ideas about hatred and prejudice? And yes, it _is_ people who must change. Gun control is not going to prevent hateful people from getting guns and doing crime. Arming everyone is also not the answer. It is we, people, who must change our attitude and develop compassion and tolerance for those who may not look like us, worship like us, talk like us, etc.”

“Jesus already came back, only his name this last time around was Meher Baba. He's also been Buddha, Mohammed, and quite a lot of other names in other lives and times. Nobody's ever seen God's avatar come back twice with the same name. Next time, maybe God's avatar will be female... and, man, is she going to be pissed off. :D”

“"There are many who know the Bible fairly well, but are not well-acquainted with the nature and character of its Author." -- Singular... you're saying that the author was God? There's absolutely no proof of that, and plenty of proof there were multiple male human authors, none of which were Jesus.”

“For that matter, why would you simply trust what other people who actually wrote the Bible say about Jesus Christ? As far as I know, Jesus never wrote anything that's inside it. It's all hearsay and well after the times being written about.”

eword on Jun 21, 2012 at 19:16:47

“You are very correct, Jesus never wrote any part of the Bible, but it was His followers who put together their recollections. The question is whose testimony about Jesus should we trust? Should we believe the people that worked, traveled and ate with Jesus or should we believe someone else that wasn't there?
Believing is a choice. You can choose who you want to believe or disbelieve.
If you are questioning whether the Bible is the Word of God, then that is a whole differrent debate without end. My post was for those who are convinced the Bible is the Word of God and not those who want to debate endlessly about it's credibility.
Thanks anyway for taking the time to respond.”

“We need more than simply dialogue and education. We need living wage jobs with a guaranteed minimum income that adjusts for inflation in real-time. There is plenty of food, we produce enough to feed 10 billion people right now, it is poverty that limits access to it. If the private sector refuses to create those jobs, then the government _must_ do so (and that is according to law, notably in The Constitution).”

“War on Truth? A simple search of PubMed for "cannabis" brings up hundreds of studies from around the world showing the efficacy of cannabis as a medicine.
