The ethics of worship
#41
RE: The ethics of worship
You have a moral standard?

Last I checked, I was stronger than a fetus, and if I want to crush it's skull, what can it do about that? Don't we satisfy the standard of might with respect to a fetus? Doesn't that make whatever we do good™ in the same way you've contended that it makes god good™?
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

Abortion might be legal, but it doesn't follow that there is nothing wrong with it.

O rly?

How is something "wrong" with it, and what basis to you think that "wrong" is from? Play tell, sounds like a moral framework to me.

Abortion is morally justified even if it's desirable .

Are you saying that you evaluate the justness of God's actions on how well it accords with popular morality?

ust as viable as supporting literature as the books of maccabees (where the jews get hanukkah from and acts as a historical document that completes the time line between the book of isaiah and the book of matthew. enoch fills in from adam to noah.

The people who decided canon say otherwise.

There are differences between babies and fetuses.  Whether or not those differences matter is debatable, but until you can demonstrate that those differences do not matter, then you cannot substitute babies with fetuses and have the same result.  You don't get to just ignore inconvenient facts.
Also ignores the fact that the fetus /baby distinction isn't even the important question .
