I was going to write that, too, but Buddhism is generally not considered a "religion" as the others. In addition, do you know how Zen got developed? The Samuri warriors wanted to not be afraid of death when they were involved with their killing.
He is a excellent actor ("Sommersby" still gets me teary eyed at various points, even after repeated viewings, he and Jody Foster were just SO good! ...and the score was excellent also!), and yes freakin gorgeous! :)
....everything whoreywood does is recycled, is this supposed to be a "revelation" of some kind? I leave that to the snake-handlers. MSnbc? Are you making a personal attack of some kind? Sounds like someone's needs his nap (or perhaps nappy changed?)! I'm disappointed, expected you to tell me he's a "Leftist", isn't that what you always say?
Oh are you a physician? You claim so many things I don't know? You claiming to know what's "viable"? I know if you-and-your fellow-travelers had their way, rape, incest, massive birth-defects, irrelevant, only YOUR mad-snake-handler "beliefs" as to what constitutes life. Every sperm is sacred, every zygot!
Nope. It is clear. Those people are for life. If they wanted to be very specific, maybe they would say they are "pro-unborn-baby-living," or something like that. "Pro-choice?" Heck, I said that to my wife today at a restaurant. She asked me what I thought was good, and since I am "pro-choice," I suggested she choose freely and voluntarily. Is that the kind of "choice" you mean?
Yes, that is why I referred to the unborn little babies. Degenerate murderers are a different story. Isn't it interesting that Liberals will hold candlelight vigils for serial rapist-killers, and encourage women to "make choices?"
No right-wing fascism, endless killings, endless "disappearances" to mass un-marked graves, South America is filled with them, right-wing-fascists responsible. Many of the so-called governments in-bed with your blessed saints mad-emperor-reagan for instance, amongst other scum, like your boy friedman, and the iron-whore-thatcher.
Funny how DNA testing has so many of your degenerate murderers walking free.
"encourage...... make choices"
Offer choices. Women clearly think that's good. What the heck do you know? How to do invasive ultrasound?
You have deflected and adverted from the topic. I am referring to the typical Conservatives, the people in your town, the people on your street - the ones who believe that the lives of unborn babies should not be snuffed out and called "making a choice."
But you divert to a completely different topic about government actions that have nothing to do with the lives of unborn children in our country, and the people who do not want to see their little lives ended.
No. You're talking about a wedge issue. The mainstream conservative constituency does not agree with you. You simply seek to push legislation through corruptly elected red-state legislatures.
Again, you are male. Why is it your issue?
As Freecrack so wisely said
"um so pro-life isnt a play on words huh?
cuz as i recall the party that is supposedly pro-life are also the capital punishment and pro-war crowd, making the pro-life claim just frippery. (I'd say it's typical right-wing HYPOCRISY!)
but then again, they have no idealogy, so it is just a coincidence that they all happen to claim to be pro life, while loving executions."
so the pro-life crowd arent the same people who support the death penalty?
the pro-life folks are vegetarians?
the pro-life crowds are opposed to war as a way of dealing with others?
the pro-life crowd are against guns, as they are a tool that serves but one function to kill?
which by the way, if you are pro-life, or pro-anything for that matter, you have an idealogy.which you claim conservatives dont have.
degenerate murderers are a different story?
do degenerate murderers not possess their own lives in order to be degenerate murderers?
cuz im pretty sure they arent the undead walking the earth like zombies.
they are alive, thus supporting killing them regardless of the reason why, is being not pro-life.it is actively supporting a position that seeks to take lives.
thus making the pro-life moniker word play exploiting concepts, not accurately expressing them.
but remember apparently "life" only applies to the unborn.
and all other forms of life dont qualify as life.
just a little rewriting of the english language in direct opposition to the dictionary and it all makes sense
who says the purpose of execution is singular.
their is the purpose of punishment, also the purpose of scaring people into not doing various things, as well as making problems go away that other wise cannot be suppressed.
not to mention the sacrificing of virgins and such to appease gods.
it has no single purpose, and changes from situation to situation.
the problem with the abortion debate is the mixing of concepts.
some how an unborn chid is viewed as life, when as unborn it is the potential for life, not actual life.even by your own account, do you celebrate your "birthday" which marks the length of your life measured by years, by when you were born, or when you were concieved?
you have an allowance for killing that makes it just in your view.it seems as punishment.
you fail to see that others have different allowences for killing and expect them to think as you do.
nor is preventing the birth of a child the same thing as executing it.
you do know abortions happen naturaly right?woman expell fertalized eggs all the time when menstruating.it makes it not a matter of ethics or judgement of any sort.it is a natural process.
comment was made with poor satire I guess. I don't hate anyone. I do hate religion in general. It keeps people suppressed and depressed. The statement was in response to folks who don't gather info about anything but still hate what they don't understand, at the same time not willing to learn.
no.pro-life is an idealogy.
what isnt an idealogy is poro blinking or pro breathing.these are natural functions that require no idealogy.
for instance according to you islam isnt pro-life, yet they are over a billion strong right.
so being as they do exist, and have so for almost 1500 yrs, you gotta pick one or the other.
i do look forward to another argument over the use of the word almost, and to what effect
No, it goes on in this country under multiple religions. It goes on in many countries under many different religions. It goes on in families with no religion. It depends on the family and the situation. We have places for women to reach out here in this country. The shelters and agencies are all over the place. They started over 50 years ago. Now there are tear sheets on the inside of toilet stall doors with numbers and websites to get help....
The lives of women in those countries are circumscribed, both legally and socially. One marries, for example, the person that the family chooses. Rebel against it and one is ostracized. OK, now start and say that this happens in America - distort and twist.
Who so shall telle a tale after a man,
He moste reherse, as neighe as ever he can,
Everich word, if it be in his charge,
All speke he never so rudely and so large;
Or elles he moste tellen his tale untrewe,
Or feinen thinges, or finden wordes newe.
Word games. Your post clearly imply that in America women are oppressed/suppressed. You praise other non-Western countries for how women live in them. Now, I suspect either a personal insult, a pretense to sophistication with poems, or word games that deflect from the obvious essence of your posts. Why do I write "obvious?"
Because Nursediesel and I came to the same conclusion - independently - about your posts.
