Quote# 65193

<<Regarding sectarian violence in Northern Ireland>>

I was a young catholic of 9 when the the "troubles" started and was well aware of what was happening. There is a direct link between that and the passing of the pro-killing abortion law of 1967, the first legalised killing taking place in Jan 1968. Because this nation showed a callous disregard for human life then God judged this nation with IRA terrorism.

I'm surprised that you're admitting that the IRA is a terrorist group. Usually Christian fundies insist that all Muslims and only Muslims are terrorists.

God's obviously gone soft on the abortion issue, then, given that IRA terrorism seems to have stopped, and the 1967 Act remains in force. Except, of course, in Northern Ireland, which was specifically exempted from the Act. Dimwit.

Umm...abortion isn't legal in either part of the island of Ireland.

Not to mention the fact that the root cause of the troubles can be traced back well over 400 years - long before 1967.

God gives up easy doesn't he 'cause He's not doing it now. God punishes me for my sins by taking just one of each pair of socks I have so leaving me with odd socks, What a pushover He is since I can live with odd socks no problem and still I sin as much as I want. 'Course, when I say sin, I mean I just behave normally as an average type of chap.

From what I've seen, extremists don't need abortion as an excuse to kill each other.

So, you're saying that William of Orange caused parliament to write the 1967 Abortion Act? Maybe the Abortion Act retrospectively caused the potato famine? Was there a provision in the Act which called for members of the 1st Parachute Regiment to fire on protesters on Bloody Sunday? Because, of course, nothing else could have been the root cause of the "troubles" except for the bleeding 1967 Abortion Act, to a gibbering slack - witted alter boy like you anyway.

The removal of parasistic clumps of cells and tissue isn't killing.

And abortion is legal in lots of other countries which don't have terrorist problems, IRA or otherwise, so it appears your theory is shot to hell, doesn't it?

8/30/2009 2:02:19 PM



So, God's a terrorist. I actually find myself agreeing.

Huh. It's sort of a relief to see that you have nutters over there, too.

Is this person saying Ireland's troubles, which have been around for hundreds of years, is caused by a 35+ year old abortion law?

Just once I would like to see God move all the cloud's in the sky to make them read "Oi! Cut it out!" It would be a clearly indication of his anger then seemingly random acts of violence.

Remember when God dispatched angels to carry out his wrath? Are terrorist's the new angels?

8/30/2009 2:32:31 PM



@clockworkgirl21:

Not only that, but a 35 year old abortion law that did cover or affect Northern Ireland.

Because this nation showed a callous disregard for human life then God judged this nation with ___________________________ (fill in the blank with your choice of - war, natural disaster, disease, etc.)

That's the fundie God for you - kill anyone in the same (town, village, country, planet) who happens to be standing by.

@John: "Because this nation showed a callous disregard for human life then God judged this nation with ___________________________ (fill in the blank with your choice of - war, natural disaster, disease, etc.) "

I choose to fill in the blank with "a callous disregard for human life."

Instead he writes "Allah" up there, and on the sides of dogs and sheep, and not in English, either. Sometimes he puts Mickey Mouse on the side of a cow. Hahaha, what a joker god is.

Well, what's the direct link?

Your god is a terrorist? Really?

Wanker!

So you are saying that your god sends and controls terrorists? You worship a terrorist?

8/30/2009 3:25:04 PM

D Laurier.

So Irish outrage at English injustice had nothing to do with it?....
Heres a clue; There was never any
"pro-killing abortion law of 1967"
No killing was ever legalized.
And nobody judged Ireland with IRA RESISTNCE TO ENGLISH RULE.

Please try again when you get some FACTS

This is why I should be god. I would come down from the sky and be like "Look fellas, I don't really like that" as opposed to mass destruction. And I'd let everyone in heaven, which would be an amusement park.

8/30/2009 3:38:21 PM

Blackvoice

Of course, because the IRA isn't comprised of real people, with real issues. No, they were just poofed up by god because he was peeved.

Seems to me that the problems in Ireland started with some guy named "Patrick" that gets celebrated every March.

Well, that's a new one. What won't these people blame on abortion?

> God judged this nation with IRA terrorism.

Fascinating! Usually God judges nations with plagues of locusts and droughts and other nonpersonal crap like that. It makes deciphering the God's intentions really damn hard! But here we have instead a divine judgment in form of a group of people. A good upstanding Christian group, no less! Let's go and ask them exactly how did God send them here on Earth. I'm sure all theologians are just dying to know this stuff!

God judged the UK with terrorism from the IRA in Ireland...

Yet we see the abortion law still standing and divorce legalised in Ireland... Sounds like God's plans misfired.
