entre nous

By Diogenes (articles ) | Mar 26, 2007

The Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice stands by one, and only one, dogma:

If it's just between a woman and her god, what difference does it make what her religion says?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    I have to agree with Judas on this one... I say she lets her "god" come down and show us... Elijah, someone is calling for a rematch. Bring your bullocks!

    I went to their web site to see if the illustrious pair were members of Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice or just actors. (I think they were just actors.) They have a snappy slogan. "Pro Faith-Pro Family-Pro Choice. When you stand for everything you stand for nothing. They are destroyers of human life and culture, nothing more.

    I think her "god" is not the same as my God. I think He is the only God even if she rejects Him. I think, when she meets Him face-to-face, her God is going to tell her to go to ....

    If it's really between a woman and her God, I say "Go for it". Let her God come down from on high to perform the task. Then we'll see what happens to the numbers...

    She'll find out what difference it makes when she goes to meet "her god" just as she'll find out there is only one God and when she meets Him, she doesn't get a lawyer - Yes, there are some lawyers in Heaven - and she doesn't get a plea bargain. The record stands, just as it will for all of us. The Abbess Ann

    They're just throwing down the gauntlet to real believers (as in "YOUR religion). One can almost hear the "Hmmmph!" But the joke's on them. Nobody's interested in taking it up.

    Tsk tsk tsk, Judas. Surely you meant to say, "creating God in woman's image."

    Note the question on the poster: "What does your religion say?" not, "What does God say?" There IS a difference.

    "If it's just between a woman and her "god", what kind of "god" does a woman have that says to her, yes it is okay to kill the person inside you that is fashioned after you and the father's likeness? Also, that little baby could even look like it's gandmother or grandfather or even an aunt or uncle. What kind of "god" could promote and sanction killing the baby without a chance? Sounds like these men and women have been deceived by their "devil god".

    If the woman thinks she is her own god, Uncle Di, it makes no difference at all. Except to the child.

    Women (and men) are "responsible, moral decision-makers" only when they make responsible, moral decisions - unless all women have the charism of infallibility?

    "respect the value of potential human life while remaining firmly committed to women as responsible, moral decision-makers." On the day we celebrated the Incarnation of our Savior, who was once a "potential life", my religion says "Do not Kill." My religion says it is a morally grave sin to take the life of your child. Go and sin no more.

    Forgot to add... sounds like another case of creating God in man's image.

  • Posted by: - Mar. 26, 2007 8:13 AM ET USA

    Mine says "Thou shalt not kill". Any other religion is, in the words of Rush Limbaugh, "irrelevant".

    "If it's just between a woman and her god, what difference does it make what her religion says?" Because without her religion, she can't get all dolled up with chic prayer shawls, albs, stoles, yamulkas, and assorted vestments. She can't be called , "Rev" and "Rabbi". She can't clip the latest recipes for Christmas, Easter and Passover. And she can't feel progressively justified yet following the traditions set down so long ago by that great Sanger priestess.
