    "Do you agree with the following principles stated in the Republican National Platform?...

    b. Endorsement of a human life amendment to the Constitution...."

    (Yes or No)

    This is one of the questions asked on the Candidate Questionnaire by the Republican National Coalition For Life.

    http://www.rnclife.org/misc/cand_ques.html

    Phyllis Schlafly founded this organization.

    The website for the Republican National Coalition For Life says this:

    The Republican Party has been the pro-life Party since Roe vs. Wade when, at the 1976 National Convention a resolution in support of efforts to secure a human life amendment to the Constitution was adopted.

    http://www.rnclife.org/about/

    I'd like to see the politician who will be able to throw Phyllis Schafly and the Republican National Coalition For Life out of the next GOP convention. I think that that politician will be a sure loser in November 2008. Of course, this means that Ron Paul cannot win because he cannot defeat Phyllis Schafly.

    I absolutely do not. Too many unintended consequences.

    I do in the sense that sanctity of life is broader than being against abortion (which I am except where the life of the mother is at risk). It includes lives taken in unjust wars like the Iraq war and also capital punishment. Many times lifers in jail become Christians. If their life had been taken they would not have had this opportunity. In addition, we're finding that many of those sentences to a death sentence were actually innocent. They simply could not afford a strong attorney or were sentenced before newer techniques were used extensively.

    The death sentence does not inhibit the soveriegnty of God.

    Such as?

    Many???? I think there have been a few. There is, so far as I know, no evidence that anyone put to death was innocent.

    A amendment? The devil is in the details. Do we hang people who take birth control pills?

    On what basis would an amendment declaring life to begin at conception allow the hanging of someone taking birth control pills that prevent conception?

    I couldn't support this amendment, too confining for the woman.

    I would be favorably disposed toward supporting such an amendment. I would like to read the actual wording before endorsing a specific one.

    1. I am not Ron Paul.

    2. I do not have to agree with a candidate on 100% of all issues to vote for him/her.

    3. It is foolish to rely on only one strategy to achieve a goal. Therefore, I can support the legislative route as well as the amendment route.

    Let me tell you, Ken, you go tell Phyllis Schafly that it is foolish what she is doing and tell her that you do not support the GOP platform and resolution of 1976. That is what you will have to do in order to nominate your candidate, Ken. I would like to see the conflict between you and the Republican National Coalition For Life at the next convention. Do you think that Ron Paul can overthrow the Republican National Coalition For Life? You are what she calls a Rockefeller Republican--maybe in your case because a Rockefeller was your governor.

    Please go back and read what I wrote. I did not write what you are accusing me of having written.

    What you wrote, Ken, was " It is foolish to rely on only one strategy to achieve a goal."

    Phyllis Schafly and the Republican National Coalition For Life have only one strategy to protect the life of the unborn child and that is a constitutional amendment. If you weren't calling her foolish, Ken, what were you saying on behalf of your candidate who is 100% opposed to a constitutional amendment to protect the life of the unborn child?

    Never mind, cmg. I find it easier to communicate with my dogs than with you.

    Have a nice life.

    Would a human life amendment even be necessary? Isn't it redundant?

    Then you believe that someone can be saved without ever hearing the gospel? That's the Hyper-Calvinist view.

    First I do not identify with doctrines of men. Second your conclusion is irrational.
