    The official position of The Baptist Board is that life begins at conception. Statements of fact that would contradict the board’s position on this issue will be edited or deleted entirely.

    That statement is almost an oxymoron. Since life does begin at conception it would be impossible for there to be any "facts" to the contrary.:thumbsup:

    Statements made as fact will not be permitted. This allows the freedom to express opinions. but not as fact. This is a position which I too applaud.

    So someone could post that abortion should be legal and as long as there is a caveat that it is their opinion that is ok?

    Nope - this has to do with when life begins only.

    Pro-abortion posts have never been tolerated.

    So since it is the official postition of BB that life begins as conception, we can state that as a fact here.. but those that don't believe life begins at conception must state that it is their Opinion?

    I think if it is the official position of the BB.. no statement otherwise should be allowed to be made.

    It is about time, BB came out as Pro-life.. Thanks to all administrators and moderators. You have made part of the net more life friendly...

    Oh, I think there is,...

    The world needs to see that we baptists believes that life begins at conception..

    I am sorry you disagree with what is obvious, and is now a part of this board's official stance.

    Frankly I find these kinds of dictates troublesome. It is like burying our heads in the sand. Sort of like when the RCC said "We believe the world is flat and everything else is not factual."

    I'll state this for the record and get blasted and told I'm not a Christian (but I'm used to that around here.) <snip>
    As well I stand in opposition to abortion. (Don't know why I need to qualify that, but I feel obligated.)

    I would offer further discussion, but think it might be censored. That is sad.

    It is like standng on a platform debating into a mirror......convince that fool and you just have a convinced fool.

    They fault socialists, liberals, democrats and claim liberty for all.

    Bunkum! But it is a private Board and they have that right.

    I am still trying to figure out the virgin birth of Jesus, without sin, and life beginning at either fertilization or conception. I don't know. I just have questions.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    Jamie: This addendum will be added to Posting Rule #2 as soon as Andrew gets around to it. He has already approved it, but he is the only one with the capabilities to add it. :)

    It stands to reason that when all DNA that makes a unique individual is present (at conception) all else is just stages of growth and development. From embryo to infant to child to adolescence to adult to an 80 year old man. Each is a stage of human development and if you deem any stage non human then you can rationalize the next just the same.

    What is actually needed is a rule to forbid turning every topic into an abortion thread.
    If we want total harmony, why not delete any debate forums in toto.

    Your statement would not apply to this thread, as it started out as a pro-life statement.

    While I believe that life begins at conception, which I also believe to be a fact, I don't see why someone can't put their opinion regarding the opposite. The whole purpose of a forum is to exchange views.

    While my views differ greatly from others, I welcome thier views. I don't have a problem with them posting thier views as long as they don't have a problem with challenging them. I have made posts on other forums & have been branded a "homophobe" because of my anti-homosexual stance. I'll take that as a compliment.

    I believe that abortion should be made illegal (except in the case of rape or where it has been determined that the mother will die from giving birth). Anyone involved in an illegal abortion should be charged with 1st degree murder. It is a pre-meditated act. I also believe the mother who allows it should also be brought up on charges too for being an accomplice.

    I applaud the administration of the Baptist Board for making this the board's official position as I am opposed to the use of abortion at any time for any reason. This is a private, Christian board and it certainly has the right to restrict anyone from promoting the idea that life begins at any time other than conception. :thumbs:

    These kinds of decisions damage the credibility of the board the ability of the members converse. That is sad.

    Like debating in a mirror...I like that statement.
