    That's not the job of a religious community. They are suppose to love and follow God's commandments.

    And there's nothing in there about SSM. So we're good to go.

    Unless you think that flowers and trees are 'innocent?' Hey, if you want to value some 'innocence of emptiness', that's up to you. Better not pick any flowers then tho.
    God gave us dominion over the flowers and trees etc.. He has dominion over humans....born or not. He breathed life into that human at conception.

    Enough of your pro-abortion excuses.

    Really? Breathing means you are 'innocent?' Pretty sure that doesnt apply to alot of people, in prison and out.

    You need to read what I said again. GOD breathed life into that child at conception.

    Nothing about homosexuality in the 10 Commandments. Do you need me to post them here?

    So? Then according to you, He also breathed life into every murderer, rapist, pedophile, adulterer, etc. Are they also innocent? Let's try and maintain a little consistency here, eh?

    You're making my point for me.

    In the context of an unborn child, "to go out, to go forth" can refer to both premature birth *and* miscarriage. That's why they did not use the term for miscarriage (because they wanted to include premature birth too) and why they did not use the term for premature birth (because they wanted to include miscarriages)

    If they wanted the fine to apply only to premature births, they would have used the verb form of yeled
