Veronica Wrote: I am busy researching something interesting about Pat Robertson & Jerry Falwell to show you - but FIRST: I just remembered something that came up in sociology or psychology class:That animals, specifically rodents, if put into a situation where they were confined and no escape, and "over-population" had occurred, it was not uncommon for the rodents to become homosexual. //// This is mind-blowing, isn't it? What does it prove? That homosexuality is possible among other animals, (mammals) and that it may NOT be "choice" or "genetic" but it may be a Nature response to very adverse circumstances. A primal form of adaptation.This may not be anyone else's idea, but it is something I realized when THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX. (I love to do that). Especially when it gets me in trouble:) "Veronica, stop doing that & keep your mind on this page. No more of that useless daydreaming, letting your mind wander all over the place. Keep focused!" -- (ha) -- Little did they know.

libertycitizen Wrote: Dwyer, When it comes to abortion, stay out of it. This is between women. You have no idea what it is like to be a woman.
libertycitizen Wrote: Dwyer, Perhaps "My tone" doesn't feel right" is because a man does not have any idea what its like to be pregnant or to have to face important decisions when it comes to pregnancy.It takes great courage. when faced with an unwanted pregnancy,for a woman to decide to keep the baby. And there is always adoption but that is a painful decision also. But abortion? Do you realize how many women go into depression after having an abortion? Do you realize the toll it takes on a woman's body when she has an abortion. Back in the 80's we would get patients in for their 4th and 5th abortions. They were using abortion as birth control. But then on the opposite side, we would get women in to deliver that had no prenatal care or were crack addicts who delivered babies that had to withdraw from drugs or were deformed or had learning disabilities. Many of the nurses adopted those babies. then there were mothers who would come in and deliver and then abandon their babies. Would you say it would have been better if they had aborted? We have asked that until we would be called to assist with another abortion. I have been accused of being a self righteous Christian. The reason I believe the way I do is because I have been in the trenches and I have worked with poverty and prostitutes and drug addicts and families who for generations after generation it was normal for them to be on welfare. They don't know any other way to live. And we would set up programs to help them. Programs to help them learn how to dress and fill out job applications and guess what? Very few would show up. You can pump as much money into helping the poor as you want and it won't do any good. The problem lies with morality, the work ethic, and self respect. And until someone can devise a way to instill all of that into their lives we will always have the poor. You can criticize Christians all you want but the organizations that helped the most were Christian organizations. they helped people to find hope and respect for themselves and find another way to live. I'm not saying they were successful 100% of the time but I say many pick themselves up and go on to lead productive lives. But then there are many who insist on remaining prostitutes and drug addicts and they are the ones you mourn over. Its hard and a painful thing to watch 22 year olds die of alcoholism or be locked up in a psych ward because they have burned their brains out on drugs or to help another baby come in to the world hooked on crack. For me thats where prayer comes in. This fairness stuff, its just another political agenda to try to help Obama to get reelected. He is trying to use the gay community, the poor and anyone else he can as political pawns and it is disgusting.
libertycitizen Wrote: Veronica, WHAT????? So you took a few semesters of biology and was an escort and so therefore you know all about the subject? Come on! Try 26 years of working in the field and then tell me what its all about. Your accusations are the result of the fact that I dare disagree with you. Now I'm a liar? And your referring me to Dwyers religious rant? Does this make sense? Right wing lies has nothing to do with what I wrote. I wrote my personal experience as to why I'm against abortion. Now your call me a liar? Wow Veronica, I'm sorry you had to resort to name calling again. Maybe your the one that should refer to Dwyers religious rantings. Your thoughts and writing are convoluted at best.
