    The absolute silliness of this response indicates which side of this hypothetical divide you might fall.

    Really, Chuck?

    The thread title is ~"remove the age of consent". And the OP wants to test kids to see if they are fit for sex with adults.

    Your's and ecofarm's responses indicate that you wouldn't pass the test. Neither of you are sufficiently mature to discuss this subject seriously, and therefore should not be allowed to operate a motor vehicle.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    First, it doesn't say age of consent. Second, you are the only one talking about sex. I'm pretty sure the OP was more about driving, drinking (hopefully not at the same time), smoking and voting. Take your obsession with pedophilia to another thread.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    The subject is testing children so they can participate in "adult activities". Read the OP.

    Only because you have made it that way. Other wise it was a thread about determining maturity. The only person talking about sex is you.

    Yes, really. I was against the OP idea. Yet you attack me and call me a pedophile because you are so obsessed with the idea you can't let it go. The only perv in here is you.

    Re: Should Society Eliminate Age of Majority?

    The OP was asking about majority being based on something OTHER THAN age.

    Personally I think it should be when the person becomes the head of his/her household, i.e. responsible for his/her own rent and other basic needs. If a kid can pull that off at 16, cool. If it takes until age 30, cool.
