    Thank you.

    I make an innocuous comment and you respond by projecting sexism onto others while going on a sexist tirade against pregnant women and women in the workplace whom you refer to a "chippy pretty girls".

    Seems like you have a chip on your shoulder.

    I am a Christian because I believe in Jesus as the Son of God and that he died as the price for my sins. Everything beyond that is church denomination specifics that not all churches agree upon or that all Christians agree upon. My religion is my own and you can quote to your hearts content. You can believe that I only believe that I am a Christian. I guess if I don't fit your worldview of a Christian I'm not. Guess what that is your problem not mine. If you can't comprehend my relationship with God and what I can and can't do, again your problem not mine. BTW, I'm not Mormon. I'm not Methodist (united or otherwise), nor Catholic, nor any other denomination. You can compare my religion with all those and you will of course find me lacking. But Christianity is no one thing and as such you don't get to dictate to me, or really anyone what our religions allow or don't allow. It's called religious freedom. Look it up sometime. It's part of the Constitution.

    So I got you mixed up with the other guy who is Mormon. Sorry.

    But either way, my main point in my previous post to you still stands - if you consider yourself 'Christian' then that probably means that what the Bible says is important to you...and so the verses I quoted still apply. If you want to ignore them, that's up to you.

    Important, yes. To be taken so literally as to discount any possibility that man mucked up some details or left out important part during the Nicene Council? No. Hence why my religion is my own and I can allow others to do as they wish even to given them what they wish despite it being a sin for me. For that matter while I don't beieve that I am allowed to work magic, I have no issues with helping my siblings set up and take their physical components. Their magic works are not a sin in the Goddess' eyes, and I've committed no sin in my God's eyes.

    So all this brings us back to where we started in the first place. You don't get to say what is sinful for a person or not. Especially not with law. Saying that one will not cover their employee with a certain service does not deny that service to the employee. Only that service paid for or performed by the employer. The employee is still free to obtain what he want by whatever means he can that doesn't require violating someone else's freedom. A right is only that which the government cannot legally deny you nor can someone by force prevent you from obtaining. That latter means that while I don't have to provide it to you I also cannot prevent you from seeking it from elsewhere.
