    Apparently you’re unaware of the full meaning of the word “religious”. In my experience the ability of people like yourself to discuss on this matter is as short and weak as your attention spans.

    I reject your assessment that the faith-based pro-life argument is weak. I’m a pretty smart guy and I just don’t see the inherent logical superiority of the anthropocentric scientific materialist viewpoint that you prefer. You seem kind of preachy yourself here. I was merely pointing out the hypocrisy of trying to portray pregnancy as either (a) the absolute and exclusive domain of the mother herself or (b) an abnormal “condition” requiring “diagnosis” and “treatment”. Also my attack has been on the artificially dehumanizing rhetoric used by pro-abortionists like yourself. I was also pointing out that you must use such dishonest and inconsistent language and reasoning because your entire justification for slaughtering the unborn hinges on classifying them as “non-persons”, the same way the Supreme Court classified black slaves as non-persons during antebellum slavery in America. This is the technique of the power elite whenever they want to perpetrate a moral atrocity for the sake of their personal lifestyle convenience or because the majority in society refuse to acknowledge the wrong-headedness of their behavior.

    Says you. I find your views obnoxiously ridden with superstition and misinformed malevolence.

    Your malevolence has overtaken your faculties. You’ve descended into some personal interior hell of absurdity and emotional imbalance. Try and pull your noggin out of your nethers. Maybe if you brace yourself on your copy of the Talmud. You’re babbling incoherently.

    Who cares? Have your laugh. Do you think I give a shit? People like Carlin who can only think of the word “fuck” when they think of genitalia are boring.

    Maybe, but only if they thought the person telling them had a clue about anything that matters to anyone. I don’t.

    “Special” indeed…

    You obviously didn’t read past the first two sentences.

    Regardless, you’re an asshole of epic proportions and ought to be muzzled until you learn not to speak.

    I was offended by the first sentence and chose not to allow you (with your Carlin proxy) to go on offending me to my face and that makes me an asshole? You should get out of your bubble more often.

    I wonder if he is a buddy of acyu…both are east Indian names…

    You’re only offended because you know that every word of Carlin’s I posted was and is the absolute truth, and you don’t want to admit it.
