    Yes, it is illegal to kill people. When one can show me how you can transfer an embryo or a fetus to another person that is willing to or have it survive artificiality I will come back to abortion debate and review my stance. Until then there isn't personhood nor should there be. If there was personhood, everything you do as a pregnant woman that isn't great for the baby (tuna, coffee etc..will allow you to get into trouble)

    Again, Gloria, sin is religious and should have NO bearing on our laws.

    Considering our forefathers looked for sep. between church and state especially Jefferson who was a non believer I don't agree. I think our first laws were basic and humanistic. No where does it say anything about sin. You are putting that wording in.

    Regardless, it's not right for the US to pick one religious stance and use that to base new laws or changes to laws. We have gay marriage here and trust me...I t hasn't changed my heterosexual marriage at all. Things didn't go to chaos after it. Everyone moved on with their lives and gay couples can enjoy the same life I have in the commonwealth.

    Nonsense, it just happens to be coincidental that most sins are unethical, hurtful acts that any person, with a good heart and common sense, would think should be against the law.

    He calls himself a Christian in letters, while still finding fault in some of the individual church sects, especially Catholicism.
    So he was a Believer, he just had some disagreements with some of the organized churches.

    Gay Marriage Favored by Majority of Latinos in United States - ProCon.org

    I just did a quick search, but this article says that 44% of Americans are against same sex marriage. Will you ban 44% of people from being on this task force? I do not see how a person's views on same sex marriage could have anything at all to do with their ability to prevent bullying.

    There is a difference between thinking that personally it is wrong for you and trying to keep laws, or enact laws that provide full benefits that other members of society get.

    For example, my personal morals may be that premarital sex is wrong (this is not my personal moral just one that I could think of) but that doesn't mean I couldn't be an effective high school nurse trying to comfort and counsel a young woman finding out she's pregnant...does that make sense?

    I believe he said this near death and I'll admit he might have had a change of heart. I don't think deathbed utterances are indications of how one has lived their entire life though.

    You don't think that if a group of reasonable, completely non-religious people sat down in a group, and came up with laws to follow, that they would be along the same lines? I'm curious why?
