I'm not Catholic, but I'm pretty sure they don't believe that salvation/forgiveness of sins happens at point of baptism.

that is one of the main points of baptism

Baptism is an important sacrament because Jesus was baptised, and after his resurrection he told his disciples that they too should be baptised. ... It was John who baptised Jesus. Christians believe that baptising cleanses people from original sin and marks a person's official entry into the Church

my whole fucken life ...

and I already gave you a link
sorry, I thought i had posted the link

here it is

From the article:
Baptism is an important sacrament because Jesus was baptised, and after his resurrection he told his disciples that they too should be baptised. ... It was John who baptised Jesus. Christians believe that baptising cleanses people from original sin and marks a person's official entry into the Church
Christians also believe that the baptised person receives the Holy Spirit.
This is HORRIBLY general stuff from the BBC, and I expect WAY more from them. That should at least say that CATHOLIC Christians believe that baptising cleanses people from original sin and marks a person's official entry into the Church and CATHOLIC Christians also believe that the baptised person receives the Holy Spirit - not least because the article is specifically about Catholicism. Like I said, I don't know much about the Catholics, but we Protestants absolutely do not believe what the BBC implies that ALL Christians believe. DO BETTER BBC!

first you argue that don't say it enough now you're arguing that they say it to much?
you don't have a clue what you're saying do you?
Use your common sense. You don't need to be a journalist to know that specifying "CATHOLIC Christians" and then also saying "Christians" without specifying is not the way to do it. Either this author accidentally used both to refer to CATHOLIC Christians, or else they are WRONGLY characterising non-Catholic Christians. You may not have read the entire article, but it refers to other Christian denominations too. So no, it's not EXCLUSIVELY about Catholics.

This law is pathetic bible thumping nonsense!!!!!

Most women don't even know they are pregnant at six weeks.

Someone explain to me how they have been deemed to have past the point of no return if they didn't even know they were pregnant?

Fucking conservative god bothering motherfuckers!!!!:mad::mad:

Americans, and their ilk should be really proud of themselves...... banging on and on about freedoms, while removing them and at the same time beating their male chests.........what's worse? a safe legal abortion?...... or a loaded firearm on the bedside table?

fucking hypocrites

The morning-after pill will avoid all this self righteous pseudochristian crap. Poorer women doubtless will end up at the backyard abortionists and be harmed. I repeat this simple truth:

You cannot ban abortion, you can only ban safe, medically supervised abortions.

really good point.

but you can't ban guns..... no.... no...... not in Texas...... shotguns are legal and freely available in Walmart...... and the freedom bullets that come free with the slab of beer you just purchased.

However where the fuck did the freedom go when it comes to a woman making what must be a heartbreaking choice about her own body?

(that's more of a statement than a question)

But, But, But the law in Texas is the Law in Texas, & you are completely immaterial in it's making or enforcement. For all the whinging you can muster, you are completely helpless in affecting Law Change in the Sovereign State of Texas.....Or Anywhere in the USA for that matter........regarding ANYTHING.
.....so in the end, when all is said & done, all you have is your little opinion, which means less than absolutely nothing outside this forum, much less in America's State of Affairs.


So feel free to WHINGE ON.....because at it's loudest it can't & won't change a damn thing.....

God Bless The U. S. Constitution....God Bless AMERICA....God Bless TEXAS....

To bad its a fucking shit hole.........

You left said shit hole dickhead!

i don't give a shiny fucking shite about the US...... just the people who are being fucked over by this...... because a large majority of Texans are gun toting, bible thumping hillbillys.

Abortions will still happen ( and you can't do three fifths of fuck all about it..... now who said that again....? oh you). Desperate women will still seek them out!..You can't ban backyard butchers..... only safe medical abortions. fuck that!

Where is your precious "freedoms" now ya cunt!!!!

you brag about your beloved piss soaked constitution...... and beat your chest about the FREEDOMS............. however it seems your beloved freedoms stop just short of women.

well strike me down!

loves murderous tools (firearms)...... hates trained doctors performing a safe medical procedure?....... you, old mate are a walking, talking, bile spewing contradiction. go look up hypocrite in the dictionary..... purple bounce :)
