if there did happen to be a Christian group that was turned down, did THEY bother to pursue it under the statute? Or did they just accept "No" for an answer and go on to Plan B?

Because if it was the latter, it really can't be used as a basis of comparison to criticize the current group's situation.

Is that the "Christian group" that John Hinderaker claims was turned down?

Okay - read the entire Hinderaker piece. He has another reader that makes essentially the same point I did, and Hinderaker actually backpedals his point at the end.

Can't "end a life" when nothing has been born.

From the article: "The decision of when and whether to parent a child is complicated, one of the most crucial decisions any of us will ever make".

What I don't advocate is that a fertilized egg is the same thing as a fully-realized independent human being.

I care that only those who love and want children should have them. This is for the sake of the children.

There's a huge span between those two statements, and as is so predictable, you've "filled in the blanks" with what you *think* I believe.

Sorry - things aren't that black and white and I don't accept your reductionist attempt at presenting my views.

I've wondered about that myself. Here's a discussion I found of "The Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2004" which appears on Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unborn_Victims_of_Violence_Act) and includes the following discussion with reference to abortion:

From the article: "“When you fail to communicate to the citizens and other emergency service entities, it’s a recipe for disaster”.

Hmmmmm . . . . . puts me in mind of some other recent local "training exercises" that were not well communicated . . . . . (black helicopters, anyone?)

What could POSSIBLY go wrong?

Broken eye socket? Please provide your source for this.

Because everything I can find indicates it is unconfirmed at this point.

A vote for Al Franken is a vote for Al Franken. Not a vote for Barack Obama. Not a vote for Harry Reid. Not a vote for anyone else that the discreditors try to trot out to make some unsupported point.

A vote for Al Franken is a vote for Al Franken. Period.

Why bother only listing the full name of of one of the two you mentioned?

Couldn't be that there is any kind of a suggested subtext about the President there or anything! Oh no, of course not!
