Philosophy, Religion & Society / Re: Bye Bye Abortion

There is a reason the pendulum is swinging back to the right. Current abortion laws in several US States are barbaric compared to a number of European countries. Leftists keep pushing the envelope and have managed to enact laws for the right to saw up a baby at 40 weeks.

People who are strongly for it will be living in places where it will be legal.
So all people make their residence location decisions solely based upon whether abortion is legal or not in their area?
Like-minded individuals congregate together.

So basically your feelings are your source on this.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Trump shill accounts are resurfacing

It would seem that many of the pro-Trump YT accounts from 2016 are preparing to resurface. Here's one example:



Call me cynical, but I don't think these are just Regular People™ who happen to love Trump. I wonder what's in store for us.

It’s unclear what my dwelling has to do with anything.
Right. Now that you've confirmed you're trolling, let me make one thing clear: If you're not ready to be sincere in the upper fora, please be ready not to be in the upper fora at all. If you do not make the decision by yourself, one will be made for you.

Have a splendiferous day!

This thing, being thusly defined, remains undefined.
Self-awareness issues?

Infinity is singular.  No sure WTF that has to do with anything.  It's not a value, never was and was never meant to be.  You seem awfully confused.

Except for the people who don't. of course.

I find it quite amusing that people who are strongly anti-abortion tend to be strongly anti-gun control.  Let's protect the fetus, but once born, they're on their own trying to avoid being killed in a mass shooting.

Infinity, being boundless, remains undefined.
Infinity is defined as boundless.

Regardless, being boundless means that there is no boundary between infinite and finite.

So only pro-choice folks live in, say, New York City? And everyone who lives there does so for the express reason that it's all pro-choice people?

My legitimate polls state that people who are against it will be living in places where it will not be legal.

What legitimate polls are those? Let's see them. A link(s) will do.

I never said it did include the word "assault". It was a question. Does the language allow someone to not be criminally liable if they assault a homosexual person based upon their faith, conviction, or belief in traditional values?
People who possess faith, conviction, and traditional values, are not the ones going around assaulting anyone.

So no one with faith, conviction, and traditional values has ever assaulted anyone?

You ought to know...I mean you are constantly on this forum questioning the validity of a person's faith, convictions, and traditional values via constant verbal assault and weak humor.

Hmmm, if memory serves, you just got off a 30 day ban for "Personal attacks in the upper".

But, anyone committing assault on a homosexual and subsequently apprehended, would likely face criminal charges.

Cool.

People stating they do not condone homosexual behavior are the ones facing criminal or civil penalties, for simply stating that belief.
If not, what does opposing homosexuality look like? What constitutes 'opposing homosexuality'? Not wanting to bake a cake for a gay couple's upcoming wedding? Due to your faith, conviction, or belief in traditional values? How about not giving a job to someone because they are abnormally homosexual? Because of your faith, conviction, or belief in traditional values. A lender denying a loan to a gay couple because of their faith, conviction, or belief in traditional values.
Yeah, it could look like that.

What is wrong with that?

A little thing called "discrimination".
There is nothing wrong with discrimination.

More people ought to be more discriminating.

That's an interesting point of view. I guess we'll just leave it at you are pro-discrimination.

Where does it end?
It ends when you can come up with a valid reason for claiming to have achieved a sense of PRIDE due to committing a sexual act.

Is 'heterosexuality' defined solely by the commission of a sexual act? What about just plain old attraction?
I achieve no sense of pride out of either.


No one says you have to. But you didn't answer the question.

Who gets to define what 'traditional values' are? You want the government to define for you what 'traditional values' are? That seems quite big-government to me which I thought you were against.
Traditional values are the ones established and inculcated in each individual.

When a group of people sharing the same values get together and put them to paper, you write and act as if that is a HUGE PROBLEM.

So if a group of homosexuals gets together and commits their values to paper, that then becomes "traditional values"?
Who cares what they write about their values? I don't care.

Ok, cool, so I guess you agree that if a group of homosexuals gets together and commits their values to paper, that then becomes "traditional values".
