    We ignore human nature all the time. You don't strangle everyone who angers you. You don't piss on the sidewalk just because you feel the urge. You don't steal candy from a baby just because you're hungry.

    Looking sharp.
    You said might make rights there slick. So obviously you think it is right...sense the judges in Iran have the might to have children stoned for no reason.

    That's a rather serious charge.

    Do you have any information to support that allegation?

    That's not a fact at all. What is a fact is that since the birth control pill came along unwanted pregnancies have skyrocketed.

    Unless you are going to start forcing people into abstenence (good luck) contraceptions are the most reasonable way to combat these things in today's time.
    Perhaps people are just more stupid now than they once were, and there is a great deal of evidence to support that idea.

    I know many people that are turned off from Catholicism for the contraception reason.
    If theese people feel contraception was the main foucus of the Catholic Church then they will not be missed.

    IMO, the whole reason Catholics have that in the religion is so that people will have babies and raise them as Catholics. It's a means to procreation for the religion.
    So the only reason people have children is to maintain a religion? Little wonder then that so many atheists and agnostics are having abortions.

    Which one? That the Pope opposes condoms in Africa or that he's the one who wrote the rules for hiding child-molesting priests? None of this is hard to find information.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    This is what happens when the debate is being lost. A thread about "Iran court convicts Christian pastor convert to death" will become a debate over whether the Pope is a bad person or not.

    This is a direct consequence of the dumbing down of American society.

    Good call. I didn't notice the deflection.

    Opposing the use of condoms is not a crime but hiding child molesters is.

    Please point out specifically where the Pope hid child molesters.

    It was in response to someone who said the Muslims had a responsibility to take down bad religious leaders, I pointed out the hypocrisy of the statement, by pointing out that they can say that about other religions, but not do anything about their own.

    That's what happens when you don't actually read the thread.

    They often make these charges so extreme and bizarre that it's difficult not to respond.

    They will never mention sexual misconduct within Islam, or among sports celebrities. It is always the Catholic Church that is the top of their agenda.

    These are the people on which the future of free world depends. A scary thought, isnt it?
