Yes. Having children is a moral obligation to God/society/family/etc.
No, they are free not to have children. They don't have to answer to anybody
Not if they have reproductive problems.
Yes, even if they have reproductive problems. They can adopt, you know.
They should get a medal for lowering world population.
I don't know.
Building block or stumbling block.... choose.
And that's kinda what happened to my partner. I didn't think it was a big deal to simply say it, so neither did he. But boy, he learned fast.
Cheers. You too.
This whole OP is crappola.
When a religious nut tells me I need to accept Jesus in order to be saved, I tell them I'm Jewish. Not true but it ends the conversation. When people ask me why I don't have kids, I tell them I shoot blanks. Not true but none of their business. People telling each other what to believe or how to use their woohoo is getting too personal.
Einstein, "science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."
2) I have zero problem with the religious. I have a problem with people who try to involve their religion in politics or force it on others. THAT is an issue. If trying to get the government to force your jesus values on other people is what makes you happy, then sorry. The caveat is do what makes you happy if you're not harming anyone else's freedoms in the process.
So yes, I do think people should do what makes them happy, as long as it does not effect someone else's right to do the same. I don't have to like what they're doing, I'm not a republican or democrat. Both parties try to force their non-violent morality on others. I'm more of a live and let live type. If you can provide any quotes where I've contradicted myself on that matter, by all means.
Next time I'll apologize for being a selfish piece of **** who disgraces my ancestors instead of debating, if that's what you want.
