    He seems to have the idea that in a Traditional philosophy sex has always been reserved SOLELY for after marriage; which is not true by any stretch of the imagination. Especially when one goes back to the medieval days.

    Should we address you as "St. Tigger"? Obviously you selected your own standards that best fit your perceptions about sex and partners. Good for you. But that's where it should end.

    Be a living example of your standards and values and "IF" others like what they see, they'll seek you out and make inquiry about your standards and values.

    But your standards and values don't make you a better person or the moral example of humanity.

    LOL. Not in the least. I'm not Catholic, and I doubt most of the Saints carried as much armament as I do or had as little regard for human life as I do.

    You make a mistake if you believe I'm trying to convert anyone to my point of view, RW. That's not what I'm here for at all. I have no interest in converting anyone. They may choose to accept my point of view or not to. They will get their just desserts on the other side of Eternity.

    There should be a list of additional security questions on voting registration forms. This question should be one of them. You answer "no," you don't get to vote. Period.

    The morning after pill should be available to any woman of legal age for any reason whatsoever.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    An example, one of very many of this ilk, would be: On Sunday morning, a 16 year old girl will have to prove, for example, that she was raped by her 16 year old cousin, would have to just claim that. No, that wouldn’t work, she would lie and say that a stranger did it; she’d have to prove it, i.e. tell the truth. The prosecutor would have to accept her testimony, swab her for DNA and have the cousin arrested before allowing her to get the pill on Sunday morning. And you would see that this will help the related families. Please explain how. And, bty, the governmental staff that would be necessary for this will be very large, but your pro big government, correct?

    Actually - rape victims are encouraged to go to a hospital where a woman will handle their care - swab for DNA and administer the pill and give other necessary assistance.

    They can press charges if the like - but they dont' have to divulge details if they don't want to.
