Politics, Economics, and Religion


Politics, Economics, and Religion

Religion has so many connections to political and economic beliefs, there needs to be a place to identify linkages, problems, goals, options, action plans and evaluation criteria.

What is the purpose of life?

An eternal question, what is the purpose of life?, occupied philosophers’ thoughts throughout history. Stone pictographs reveal even primitive peoples reflected on this query. Each one has the capacity to define his or her personal thinking about politics, economics and religion.

@Joan.Chris didn't say that woman was married.  If her husband (?) is taking care of the kids, he doesn't need a vasectomy.  There just isn't enough info there.

Good luck floating that one with the Catholics, Tom. Good idea though.

Comment by Tom Sarbeck on Monday

With the population nearing 7.3 billion, people who have more than two children should be prosecuted for a crime against humanity.

@Chris G: It's doubtfull that places even sold [condoms] in the era of abstinance before marriage.

In the 1950s I saw condom vending machines in gas station mens’ rooms. Signs on them said “For prevention of disease only”.

Or, he should have a vasectomy, so he doe not pass on his stupidity.

@Chris.  I don't know if I would say those pregnancies were planned, but it sure speaks volumes in favor of abortion.  She should have her tubes tied, so she doesn't pass on her stupidity.

Comment by Chris on Monday


II was talkingwith a woman the other day who said her daughter had six children.  Get this - she said the

(#1) first one was accidental (not planned)

(#2) was  'unplanned' 

(#3) was unplanned,

(#4) planned

(#5) uplanned

(#6) planned

Can you think of a bigger lies than that?

It doesn't take much to argue  that all the pregnancies were  intentional and deliberate.

I don't know that woman, or her daughter. 

A guy I worked with had a daughter who had four kids - each from a different father.    That and what ever happened with the previous case I meantioned are both disgusting cases of  neglegence.

Thanks for verifying that Don.  My cousin said that as well when she argued with her mother, who said she only wanted two  children yet had four. 

"Accidental pregnancies?"

There should be no "accidental pregnancies in todays world."

@Chris.  Drug stores sold condoms in the 1950s.  I was there.

Sorry If this is becomming boaring about Birth Control vs. abortion.

In all medical cases prophylactics are the best means of prevention.  Of course in the 1950's if in no other time  confirmity was required therefore making it sociallly prohibited to purchase condoms. It's doubtfull that  places even sold them in the era of abstinance before marriage.

Of course even before the rubber revolution there were and though eternity have been lamb, or sheep intestine condomes.

The Rubber Revolution
The biggest breakthrough in contraception in the nineteenth century was not a new method, but a technological improvement of existing methods. In 1839, Charles Goodyear revolutionized the rubber industry when he made vulcanized rubber. He mass produced rubber condoms, intrauterine devices, douching syringes and diaphragms. Despite federal and state anti-birth control laws, "rubbers" were enormously popular and sales were brisk.

Sorry for not knitting this together coherently.

Social constraints at that time likely prohibeted perminent sterilization, unless, of course one was seen as inferior  in the eugenics movement (popular at the time).
