Pro-life quotes.

“Ive noticed that everyone who is for abortion is already born.” – Ronald Reagan


"There are two victims in every abortion: a dead baby and a dead conscience." - Mother Teresa

"We must not be surprised when we hear of murders, killings, of wars, или of hatred...If a mother can kill her own child, what is left but for us to kill each other?" - Mother Teresa

"...is it surprising that today we have become so morally blind (for wickedness blinds) that we save the baby whales at great cost, and murder millions of unborn children?" - Alice von Hildebrand

"Count yourself lucky your...

I was wondering something. What do Ты people think? Is war really neccesary? In my own opinion, I think it is not.
My religion is Christian, so, duh, I believe in God! Well, if Ты don't then maybe... ah never mind! I think God put everyone on Earth for him. He wants people to live for God and get along with each other to score Heaven. Hell is only worthy if Ты do not fufill God's commands.
In the harsh struggle to live in WAR, people are killing others.
I am NOT a hippie, but I believe war is murder and thanks if Ты are in the service for risking your life for America, but Ты are also...

I bet those conservatives out there were thinking that I'd forgotten all about them! Not true! In fact, I have been doing extra research over the last few days to fully get the feel for each candidate still in the running.

If Ты missed my Статья on the link, I assure Ты it's a good, solid, and fair assessment of each candidate

In the last article, I joked about Donald Trump, and сказал(-а) that I would probably not be very respectful when discussing him, on account of he's a giant tool. Well, I can't make any promises about how it's presented, but I vow to present accurate information about Donald...

PETA – Is It Really Ethical?

Who would think twice about questioning the motive of a nonprofit animal-loving organization with the word “ethical” in its title? The word “ethical” usually refers to someone who is doing the right thing. After all, who wouldn’t want to treat Животные ethically?

I sat behind an avid PETA supporter one год in my high school English class. PETA, as I was later informed, was an acronym for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, and was an organization dedicated to saving Животные and promoting veganism....

So being as math is the bane of my existence right now and I've finally snapped and nothing is left of my motivation in regards to math but a manifestation of pure rage and anger I am going to rant еще about how much I hate math. I have grown to hate it so much that I am now putting effort and energy into my hatred of it. So I will now continue my venting and raging about why students shouldn't have to suffer like so.That сказал(-а) parts of this are going to be taken from my Комментарий over on my 'is math necessary' poll.

So being as горький about math as I've grown to be, I've done quite a bit of research...

Imagine that Ты are in a boat. There are other people in your boat. There is also one person in the water. Allowing this person to get onto your лодка will not sink the boat. Everyone could easily fit comfortably. But still, there is a person in the water.

Now, if this person was only in the water for a short time, then yes, saying, "Hey, guys, lend me a hand onto your boat?" is probably exactly what she would do. But imagine this person has been in the water for hours. And imagine that it was other people in the лодка that pushed her in there. Not you, of course. Ты didn't push her in. But...

 How does God speak to you?
How does God speak to you?
Behind the минута laws and rules of a book like Leviticus, are principles which hint at what God is like. He is a Holy God who must be taken seriously. People of that time (and a lot of today's people) had the habit of inventing and discarding gods as they felt like it. God declares that He alone is the true God, worthy of all worship. In one sense what God ultimately demands -- OBEDIENCE -- has not changed since Old Testament days. But God teaches the Israelites much as a parent must teach a young child -- with dozens of clearly spelled-out rules.
 Time alone to speak with God is essential.

Just kidding. Below are a few Вопросы I’ve attempted to answer about the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC). This isn’t formal research, just a few points that I believe need to be brought to attention.

What is this ‘Westboro Baptist Church’ Ты speak of?
The fine folks at Wikipedia have summarized that in far fewer words than I ever could have, so if Ты are unfamiliar with the WBC, I would suggest Чтение the first paragraph link.

How does a church from Kansas have enough money to send members to protest all over the US?
Since the WBC classifies itself as a church, they are not required...

 Child recites from the Koran
Child recites from the Koran
First of all, let me preface this Статья by saying that I am far from an expert on Islam. The only thing that qualifies me to write this Статья is a handful of research and experience with Muslims. I feel that maybe a Muslim would be better equipped to tackle this issue, however it is so important to me that the Western World understand the difference between Ислам and Radical Ислам that I felt compelled to write this article.

In this article, I will clarify that normal Ислам is as peaceful as any other mainstream religion, like Judaism and Christianity. However, that does not mean that radical...

Censorship is probably my Избранное thing to Дебаты about. So I wanted to type an Статья about the issue.

For one it's super annoying. The obnoxious beeping mid-verse in some songs is really irksome to listen too. Small pauses aren't as bad, but still. Censorship can really ruin a good song. As for TV I understand it еще with censoring anatomy should children be watching (I'll address that in a minute) but censoring the finger или words that characters/people say on TV follows the same thing as above the bleeping is annoying and the finger, I personally don't take offense to it.

About the whole...

There has been a lot of discussion around the topic of abortion lately, partly influenced by Последнее political gaffes by republican senators concerning the concept of abortion in cases of rape.

Let me just say that I am pro-choice. I am not pro-choice because I hate Дети или children, или because I believe a fetus isn't a living thing. Maybe that makes me worse, because I Любовь children. I Любовь children so much, I invested in them by choosing a career in nurturing them and their minds and helping them grow. I recognize that even if we quibble about the specific definition of where life begins,...

WARNING- THIS Статья CONTAINS SOME INFO WHICH SOME MAY FIND DISTURBING или UPSETING.
85 percent of the time, I like to think the world's a wonderful place. we have tecnology and nature all rolled into one delicious sushi-package, we all have different place to visit and new things to learn. most of the time, the world's a very pleasent, innocent place to be. But 15 percent of the time, horrible things happen. people crash planes into buildings, tecnology is faulty, nature is being destroyed and the odd teenager sometimes drops a baby bomb on her parents and boyfriend. but only very ocassionally...

This Статья is, perhaps, mislabled, as there are several ironies concerning the American political party system. But I want to focus on a major one, an amusing one, really, and that is the difference between a party's economic politics and its social politics.

When asked what the main difference between the Democratic Party and the Republican Party is, the answer that comes is simple enough. The democrats believe in big government, and the republicans believe in small governent. That is to say, democrats would want the government taking care of Ты at all times whereas the republicans would...

Note: It's kind of late at night so this is a bit rushed & disorganized (especially regarding the points about Depp, Rowling, and DeLisle) so if anyone needs any clarification или еще context или would like to hear еще in depth about my personal feelings on each case, feel free to ask.

So this is inspired by a Последнее experience that I had with Отменить culture или an attempt at it. I have always been against Отменить culture mostly because I've had several bad experiences with it over stuff that was blown way out of proportion. It was used as a humiliation tactic and a means to try to kick me...

 Even the Joker's Had Enough Of This Bullshit
Even the Joker's Had Enough Of This Bullshit
I believe in debate, discussion, and discourse. I believe in listening. I believe in multiple sides to every issue. I believe everyone is worth listening to. I believe there can be fault on "all sides," and that we can all be guilty of misunderstanding each other.

I do not extend these courtesies to racists.

Ideas are dangerous. They are wonderful and they are disastrous. They can be used and misused as weapons или agents of peace. But when Ты are met with a truly deadly weapon, giving it the benefit of the doubt and letting it do its thing will get Ты and many others killed.

When it comes to...

The Republicans as well as a personified hairball some cat coughed up Дебаты tonight. Though there are only five of them still in the race whittled down from an impressive seventeen before the primaries, it's hard to know what they're really for and against beyond all the rhetoric.

The Democrats have a completely different pickle. Their party is divided between two candidates who can't stop agreeing on everything, and yet insist they are different from each other.

So what does this really mean? Your very own political pundit is here to break it down for Ты in as unbiased a way as I can possibly...

Today (February 5,2008) I got into an arguement with one of my teachers. She saw that I was Чтение "An Inconvienent Truth" by Al Gore. She scoffed. And like always between her and me, we got into an arguement. My teacher claimed that Global Warming hasn't been scientifically proven. She сказал(-а) that whether she believes in Global Warming или not, she would never believe the words of Al Gore. At that moment I wanted to say "F**k you!" but like I'm supposed to, I went off to my locker since the колокол, колокольчик, белл rang.
In our society today, there's always people who decide not to believe though the evidence...

 Do Ты have the patience?
Do you have the patience?
In the Old Testament God begins with a single couple, Adam and Eve. He puts them in a perfect world with certain rules to obey. They flunk! The first eleven chapters of Genesis mostly record one failure after another. God punishes Adam and Eve, destroys the world with a massive flood, and smashes a misguided rebellion at the tower of Babel.
God reaches down and selects a man named Abraham, to whom He gives some extraordinary promises. He promises that Abraham's descendants will some день become as numerous as sand on a beach, and that they will grow to become a mighty nation with their own land....

You do not have to read too far into the Bible to see it is unlike any other book out there. It is not a tightly-woven story like a novel, или a systematic Список like a textbook. It includes a diverse batch of styles: poetry, history, sermons, dramatic stories, and letters.
Some people dip right into specific Книги like Leviticus или 1 Chronicles and soon give up in confusion. They do not understand why such material is important to them. To appreciate what God is saying to us, it's important to know the whole sweep of the Bible.
In the 1st place, the Bible is not one book -- it's an entire library,...

I Любовь the constitution so much that if they were selling shirts that сказал(-а) "I <3 The US Constitution" I would buy it in a heartbeat. I was that girl who walked around campus with a pocket-sized US Constitution in her purse, because, well, Ты never know when you'll need to quote a two hundred год old document at someone, right?

But there was another document in my purse, too, a еще Последнее one. This one was based on the US Declaration of Independence, and influenced by Thomas Jefferson's contemporaries like Thomas Paine, who themselves were influenced by older documents like the English...
