Death penalty. Used to be for it but just too many times we have heard about the govt getting it wrong. Govt can't be trusted enough to enforce a death penalty as obviously there is no fixing that once you do it.

Drugs. Was once heavily involved in my school's Just Say No program. Now I'm all "hey hey hey, smoke weed every day."

God. Taught from a young age that the bible was real and true, and then you look at it objectively and... yeah, no. Jesus was a great man, but the Son of God? Born of a Virgin? Nope. Not buying.

Abortion. I'm still against abortion (would never ask or tell a girlfriend to have one), but I'm also in favor of a woman making her own healthcare decisions. Can't see how government minimalists feel they should have a say over someone's body.

The Republican Party. Grew up in a Republican household, with conservative values. The neocon movement completely changed my mind on this.

Cutler: I used to hate him because he lied to get out of down. Now he's a douche, but he's totally unapologetic about it. His whole schtick, from the fake cig to mullet costume and of course "dooooooooonnnn't caaaarrrrreeee" have made him charming. A douche still, but a charming douche.

Gay Marriage: I didn't like that the homosexual community was changing what it was. I really believe marriage is between a man and a woman. But I think this is an area we should just let people do what they want. If two consenting adults want to marry someone, that's their business. I'm not advocating force allowing it everywhere, but I think the states should decide.

My religion: Most of the reasons I followed my religion were largely spiritual and rooted in what it gave me that way on a purely personal level. Now with a child and an environment that teaches moral values and provides activities for toddlers up to 18 year olds, I am more happy about the practical applications that it affords.

Dining out: I can cook better than most of the restaurants out there and save myself at least half the money. We'll still go out sometimes, but I cook a lot of my own food now.

Well that's the fundamental difference. I don't see a fetus as a human yet. Especially an embryo. I get why people do, I just personally don't.

So is a premature baby not human yet? It's alive. What about a fleshy coating and some water on the outside of a baby makes it not human?

I also don't believe everyone is cut and dry pro life or pro choice on everything. For example most support it when the mother's life is in danger or during a rape, but the number of those are so small it's barely moving the needle. The majority of people in America don't support Abortion as a form of birth control, but that's what 99% of abortions are used for.

I don't want to turn this into an abortion thread. I try to use my view of abortion with relation to how I am about eating meat and how I appear to PETA. They probably think I'm a murderer and horrible monster for feeding an industry that tortures and kills animals for my consumption.

Glad you brought this up because it's often the example I use. We kill millions of animals that have intelligence, feel pain, etc. To me, a fetus or embryo is hardly fully formed, completely dependent on the mother, and frankly doesn't know the difference. I'm not flippant on the subject, I think it's an incredibly difficult decision and is often a sad thing. But far be it from me to force people to have them.

Your assumption that all pro-lifers want to eliminate abortion is flawed and paranoid, and leads to the accusation that pro-lifers are extremists.

I am pro life like you, but while I abhor abortion, I have no intention of overturning Roe vs Wade. It is the law of the land, as divisive as it may be. From my view they get their choice from law, not because I support them, because I don't.

I want to clarify a point. This (above) is how I have come to feel about the issue but I will not be carrying a sign in front of an abortion clinic or passing judgment on those that chose an abortion option to their life choices. I leave that to the Light that sparks us all to decide.

Of course it is!

let me get something straight. If you're pro-life, you want to eliminate the choice. 100 percent. And that's fine if you believe that, I even get why you do. But there is an argument in America, and if you're pro-life, and want to overturn the law, then pushing your beliefs on others is exactly what you're doing. If you personally would NEVER have an abortion, but allow other people to make a choice, you're pro-choice.

Again, I GET IT. If you think an embryo is a human and should have the same rights as one, then you think its murder. I get that. I just dont agree.

Not going to touch the abortion analogy, but I did stop eating meat partly on the basis of ethical reasons I had laughed at for most my life.

Politics and religion: my personal beliefs haven't undergone any big changes post-college, but I have come to see even very conservative worldviews as much more understandable and legitimate than I once did.

And not in a patronizing "oh, I get how a person's upbringing might make them hold those incorrect beliefs." More an understanding that different people and societies come to emphasize different values for historically important reasons. One of the best books on the topic is The Righteous Mind by Jonathan Haidt. Won't give the whole synopsis, but it has helped me better see the rational in opinions that I may have previously dismissed as selfish/crazy/ignorant/etc.

Also I used to think public speaking was the most terrifying thing in the world, now I think the scariest thing is death.

But by being pro life, you are. I don't think anyone on earth is pro abortion, they are just pro choice.

I'm guessing you don't know who Margaret Sanger is.......

From 1939 to 1942 she was an honorary delegate of the Birth Control Federation of America, which included a supervisory role alongside Mary Lasker and Clarence Gamble in the Negro Project, an effort to deliver birth control to poor African Americans.

She wanted the Negro Project to include black ministers in leadership roles to emphasize the benefits of involving black community leaders, she wrote to Gamble "we do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."

Elway as GM. His lack of experience scared me, but he's done quite well since taking over.

I am on the side of the defenseless. I have been given a chance to enjoy this thing we call life and I think everyone conceived should be allowed the same opportunity. If you don't want a baby there are plenty of ways to avoid conception but if you get pregnant, the government has the right to tell you what you can or cannot do with YOUR OWN ****ING BODY.

I can appreciate that. Also, the ability of a date to speak in complete sentences was not important when younger, in fact, the dumber the better. Now if I want a 2nd date, it is essential.

Man, I'm getting old.

You are gay and Blart wants your number.

It's only gay if you get a single digit and then ask for the rest of the fist.

Drugs. Was once heavily involved in my school's Just Say No program. Now I'm all "hey hey hey, smoke weed every day."

God. Taught from a young age that the bible was real and true, and then you look at it objectively and... yeah, no. Jesus was a great man, but the Son of God? Born of a Virgin? Nope. Not buying.

Abortion. I'm still against abortion (would never ask or tell a girlfriend to have one), but I'm also in favor of a woman making her own healthcare decisions. Can't see how government minimalists feel they should have a say over someone's body.

The Republican Party. Grew up in a Republican household, with conservative values. The neocon movement completely changed my mind on this.

This. Also changed my mind on gay marriage, if they want to get married and be miserable...let them.

I grew up in a Republican household, and I STILL retain beliefs of a smaller, more efficient government. However, I've come to realize that ALL politicians are out for themselves. It doesn't matter if they are Republican or Democrat...

I struggle with abortion. My ex-girlfriend in college got pregnant from me and went off and had an abortion without telling me. I have always felt a wash of sadness and relief from that situation. Really, I can see both sides of the argument, I just figure I don't have a uterus nor do I walk in the everybody else's shoes. I guess I'm personally against it, but I respect the right while still in the first trimester.

A baby is the most innocent human being.....and killing is the most heinous thing a person could do to another. That should put it into perspective for you....

What if we made abortion retroactive?

I've realized this as well. I think they're all bad. I used to do a lot of Jersey wearing. Democrats grow government faster than Republicans, but both grow government.

...But a cell mass is not a baby. Sorry, this is a philosophical discussion and it is not black and white. I have struggled with this question for almost twenty years even still after the birth of my two boys. Sorry, I was merely offering my perspective on the subject and not looking for someone to influence me with absolutisms.

QFT.

Political topics such as abortion - where individuals have varied and passionately-held opinions and there's a risk of things devolving into personal flaming - are why we have the WRP forum. Please feel free to open a new thread there.

Finger in my ass during a blow job.

When I was a teen, I would have frowned upon it.

Then one day a chick threw a digit in my 5 hole while blowing me.

It's not something I want every time I get a hummer, but now and then I'm down with a digit.

That's a great song by Disturbed......

Can you feel that?
Ah, ****

Drowning deep in my sea of loathing
Broken your servant I kneel
(Will you give in to me?)
It seems what's left of my human side
Is slowly changing in me
(Will you give in to me?)

Looking at my own reflection
When suddenly it changes
Violently it changes (oh no)
There is no turning back now
You've stuck your middle digit...in me

[Chorus:]
Get up, come on get down with the digit [x3]
Open up your hate, and let it flow into me
Get up, come on get down with the digit
You mother get up come on get down with the digit
You ****er get up come on get down with the digit
Fingers are the gift, that have been given to me

I can see inside you, the digit is rising
Don't try to deny what you feel
(Will you give in to me?)
It seems that all that was good has died
And is decaying in me
(Will you give in to me?)

It seems you're having some trouble
In dealing with these changes
Living with these changes (oh no)
The world is a scary place
Now that you've woken up the demon in me

[Chorus]

(And when I dream) [x4]
No mommy, don't do it again
Don't do it again
I'll be a good boy
I'll be a good boy, I promise
No mommy don't hit me
Why did you have to hit me like that, mommy?
Don't do it, you're hurting me
Why did you have to be such a b****
Why don't you,
Why don't you just **** off and die
Why can't you just **** off and die
Why can't you just leave here and die
Never stick your digit in my arse again b****
**** YOU
I don't need this ****
You stupid sadistic abusive ****ing whore
How would you like to see how it feels mommy
Here it comes, get ready to take all five of my digits

:)
