It bothers me Chris that you equate being a Christian with being close-minded. And maybe you studied a different history book than I did, but my history books taught me that the reason this country was even settled was so that the Puritans could escape religious persecution. Being FREE doesn't mean you should tolerate what is WRONG! It is morally wrong to kill defenseless fetuses who didn't ask to be conceived to begin with. How hard is it for a woman to get birth control these days? It isn't. I can't condone a woman killing what SHE has begotten just because she is too LAZY to get her fat ass to a free clinic for birth control! You either value life or you don't. (And by the way, I don't condone capital punishment either!) I thought I raised a son with Christian morals and values. Now it sounds like you've become just another liberal who views TOLERANCE of what is wrong as noble and open-minded. I want you to think about a statement that a German Lutheran minister made during World War II: When they came for the Gypsies, I did nothing because I was not a Gypsy. When they came for the retarded, I did nothing because I had no retarded children. When they came for the Jews, I did nothing because I was not Jewish. Then they came for me. And my neighbors.... It is crucial that mankind remember this: All that is needed for EVIL to triumph is for the godly man to do NOTHING! TOLERANCE is just another word for DOING NOTHING!
