    You know what reproduction, or reproducing, means, right? No one is stopping you from reproducing, i.e. having a baby or babies.You are repeating words from slogans which have no real meaning without thinking it through.
    No, they are not based exclusively on religion, at least not so much anymore, as there are new laws being introduced almost every day and religious influence has dropped. But there is no doubt that Christianity influenced laws and human rights throughout the western democracies and I'm somewhat surprised that this history has not been taught in the schools, given its importance.

    Do you feel that the laws were more influenced by atheists or agnostics?
    The president just announced another attempt 2 months ago that he was passing yet another bill to gain equal pay for women. If he...and Romney in MA were/are still dealing with this, it appears it was not settled in 1963

    Your dismissive attitude about women's reproductive rights and issues is exactly why we dont need more religion in our laws. Thanks for proving it. I am well-educated on the issues....your assumption that I'm not indicates a misogynistic bias also common (but not exclusive to) the fundamentalist Christians and some other religions.

    And I am fine with the influence of Christianity on our history and laws. It was not ignored in school and I acknowleged their influence in early law....did you miss that? Was reading comprehension left out of your education? Or are you just on remote control not even bothering to read but just preach?

    If I didn't respond to your diatribe, it's possible you may have
    engaged in revisionism or broad sweeping generalizations.
    I don't have time for either, and you're probably on my IGNORE list.

    Sadly tho, I have a feeling I'll have to explain how they are equal rights issues....which is pretty pathetic.

    We'll see just how much mature understanding and reality you really can manage.

    Unless, of course, he is still trying to appeal to those who tend to believe in the "War on Women", as well as to divert attention from the real issues of the day.

    Perhaps I was dismissive but words have meanings and we shouldn't distort them.
    I am well-educated on the issues....your assumption that I'm not indicates a misogynistic bias also common (but not exclusive to) the fundamentalist Christians and some other religions.
    That's nonsense. Not only am I not religious but I treat foolish men with the same regard.
    And I am fine with the influence of Christianity on our history and laws.
    So am I and said so.
    It was not ignored in school and I acknowleged their influence in early law....did you miss that? Was reading comprehension left out of your education? Or are you just on remote control not even bothering to read but just preach?
    If you read my post again, the one directed to you, then you would be more understanding of my rather sympathetic response.

    Actually I agree with SSM but don't approve of abortion, or its trivialization. But it should be legal.

    And let's keep in mind that you classify yourself as a 'moderate'.

    Another example. I'm not even Christian!
    I see you've done your homework.
    You're guessing at what was being said again.
    Who are you quoting here?
    Actually, our forefathers had a lot to say about America not being founded on Christianity, but my favorite quote is from Thomas Jefferson..........

    "Where the preamble declares, that coercion is a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, an amendment was proposed by inserting "Jesus Christ," so that it would read "A departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the holy author of our religion;" the insertion was rejected by the great majority, in proof that they meant to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection, the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and Mohammedan, the Hindoo and Infidel of every denomination."

    Well, you failed. Those are not equal rights issues. Well, maybe abortion is. The unborn child currently has no right to live.

    Re: Eric Cantor is Gone

    Previously I viewed Cantor's defeat as a blessing. A blessing because Cantor was one of the worst bought-and-paid-for quack pot obstructionists in the House.
    With Cantor and his replacement both voting the same way, our Country really does not lose or gain anything. But the Republican Party takes a big hit because they lose a power figure and a brand name.
    For this reason I consider it a win for the people.

    But now I am starting to see the potential for a super win.
    It turns out that Dave Brat is a total freak and completely insane.
    Democrats will actually stand a really good chance to defeat the Republican Party in November and take Cantor's district.
    Even the most extremist Conservatives will have to think twice about showing up to vote for Brat.
    Its only been a couple of days and we are already learning Brat is a quack pot.
    How much more will we learn over the next several months?
