You may blow out the candles... after a waiting period, a mandatory sonogram, counseling, hearing a description of the cake watching a graphic video of candle-blowing and assuming something offers the cake in your area.
Every sperm is sacred, every sperm is great, if a sperm gets wasted, God gets quite irate-Monty Python. How is it that the same folks who are so against abortion are also so against sex education, birth control, and sexual enlightenment? Ultimate irony eh? Many if not all of the abortions they’re against they cause by their regressive attitudes towards sex. Wasn’t it Santorum who said, and I choke on these words; birth control is a sin? Or was that the pope? In my own opinion a statement like that indicates mental illness in its most toxic form. The thing I see about “Orthodox Catholic” is that he’s never had an original thought in his life; since childhood under threat of harm, parental rejection, and hell, he’s learned to parrot the blather his elders demand he accept as truth which is just the ignorance of primitive people who lived thousands of years ago. Demonizing human sexuality is not morality in my opinion and that is the only morality that I see christianity really getting behind, unless you consider passages like this from the Bible to be moral: When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again.Exodus 21:7-11 NLT. Look it up yourself; I didn’t write it.
