I won't hijack and go down the whole abortion issue rat-hole, but her situation isn't what the gov't needs to protect. How about the Constitutional right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness for the unborn child.

Having a golf event on Sept 7 which will have around 140 golfers at $100 a man to raise money for the poor. I could a 100 pages on people gathering to help rais money for the poor so you can quit waiting. Maybe you should try joing an organization that helps the poor and you would actually see what people do to help them.
I was raised in a Baptist church no beer my friend. You still didn't get the jest of my post. It wasn't to say that churches don't help the poor and needy, but I have NEVER EVER seen or heard about around the country where people waited in lines and went way out of their way to support the poor and needy. Holding a BBQ or a golf tournament isn't going out of the way. Waiting in line for 3 hours to get a chicken sandwich to "support" a group is going out of your way.

You could get 100 pages of people gathering money, and I could gather 1,000 times that of people gathering money and doing things for the poor and needy that don't believe in god.

Now let's talk about donations. In one division, of one charity, of one specific faith, specifically Catholic Charities of NY, annual donations for individuals and businesses were over $ 16M in a year. At let's say an average pay rate of $ 17 / hr. after taxes, that would equate to over 940,000 hours of work/pay that were donated.

Let's not be obtuse here, Christians donate a great deal to help others and much more than the non-religious. Can I quantify that, not without more time than I'm willing to put into this discussion, but I can guarantee you can't come up with anything to refute that statement.

I'll be patiently waiting

O' RLY?



Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
To maintain its status as a charitable foundation, it must donate at least 5% of its assets each year.[17] Thus the donations from the foundation each year would amount to over US$1.5 billion at a minimum.
Quote:
The President of the Global Health Program is Trevor Mundel. The Gates Foundation has quickly become a major influence upon global health; the approximately US$800 million that the foundation gives every year for global health approaches the annual budget of the United Nations World Health Organization (193 nations) and is comparable to the funds given to fight infectious disease by the United States Agency for International Development.[20] The Foundation currently provides 17% (US$86 million in 2006) of the world budget for the attempted eradication of poliomyelitis (polio).[21]

The Global Health Program's other significant grants include:

The Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization
The foundation gave The Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization a donation of US$750 million on January 25, 2005.[22][23]

Children's Vaccine Program
The Children's Vaccine Program, run by the Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH), received a donation of US$27 million to help vaccinate against Japanese encephalitis on December 9, 2003.[24]

University of Washington Department of Global Health
The foundation provided approximately US$30 million for the foundation of the new Department of Global Health at the University of Washington in Seattle. The donation promoted three of the Foundation's target areas: education, Pacific Northwest and global health. The foundation also lead a study to increase access to high education globally.

HIV Research
The foundation has donated a grand total of US$287 million to various HIV/AIDS researchers. The money was split between sixteen different research teams across the world, on the condition that they share their findings with one another.[25]

Aeras Global TB Vaccine Foundation
The foundation gave the Aeras Global TB Vaccine Foundation more than US$280 million to develop and license an improved vaccine against tuberculosis for use in high burden countries.[26][27]

Visceral Leishmaniasis Research
The foundation awarded the Hebrew University of Jerusalem Kuvin Center for the Study of Infectious and Tropical Diseases a $5 million grant in 2009 for research into visceral leishmaniasis, an emerging parasitic disease in Ethiopia where it is frequently associated with HIV/AIDS, and a leading cause of adult illness and death. The project is a collaborative effort with Addis Ababa University and will gather data for analysis to identify the weak links in the transmission cycle and devise methods for control of the disease.[28]

The foundation has also given The Institute for OneWorld Health a donation of nearly US$10 million to support the organization's work on a drug for visceral leishmaniasis.

Warren Buffett Donates $1.52 Billion To Bill And Melinda Gates Foundation

Warren Buffett Donated $42 Million In Stock To Mystery Charities


http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmo...eir-billions/\



Yeah...and that's just two guys...lol Dude, you assertion that christians donate more than non-religious is a bogus claim to say the least. Buffet and Gates alone will most likely demolish any donations by any religious organization in the US. Guess what? Those two are agnostic.


SO can you show me the charity contributions made by churches or religious organizations in the US? I'm not talking about the tithing either. Tithing isn't a donation to a charity either. Religious people are supposed to give 10% of their income to the church as part of tithing. So how much of this money from tithing goes to charities to help other people?

I'll be patiently waiting.

The irony is SO overwhelming my brain is starting to fry.



Christians: You gays can't have rights to marry.


Christians: How about the right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness for a being who doesn't even exist or even considered a self sufficient life?


Let's not even go down this road. The picture I posted applies much like Daseal stated.

You nerds calm down. It's my birthday and answering your questions has been the least of my worries.


I think I explained my stance on "boycotting". I think it was pretty clear.

Such a union would permit individuals to receive the benefits of the traditional marriage contract while ending the government's involvement in the right of various churches to define their own requirements for the marriage sacrament.

JR, allow me to take you out for a beer the next time I'm in the area. I love you man. (no homo)


What he said is exactly what they should do in regards to marriage. Just so you know, I stood up and gave you a round of applause for that post.

Believe it or not, the marriage contract was not originally a religious issue but an enforceable contract at law related to, but not the same thing as, the religious sacrament of "marriage".
Don't tell religious people that.

Agree to not go down the road, disagree with your definition of "being that isn't even exist".
