“You’ll Have A Child If God Wants You To”
In that very same flame-war with said Catholic nutcase over contraception, she outright pulled that card. She says “If God chooses to bless you [Bless? Really? I don’t view children as any sort of blessing.] with a child, it will happen even if you’re using contraception.”
So let me get this straight, dumbass. You’re chalking up contraception failures to God? Um, no. Contraception is not perfect, and some people just don’t use it the right way. Don’t you think that would result in failures, especially for those who aren’t using it right? Even if used perfectly it might fail, again, because it’s not perfect (and why do you think I had to give two semen samples before I was officially declared sterile?). Of course, that’s why they’re so pro-NFP because God can decide to “change up the woman’s cycle” (and I’m using a direct quote from this idiot once again) and get the woman pregnant. Well, no wonder so-called NFP has a ridiculously high failure rate, and a much higher one than the 99.5% they claim. That “statistic” is utter BS and I and every other educated individual knows this. A woman can get pregnant at any time, not just certain times like NFP says, hence the high failure rate.
At any rate, I digress. This brings up a whole other issue, and I might piss some people off here but oh well. If your “God” would choose to “bless” someone with a child (using your terminology) against their will, then your “God” is a fucking asshole not deserving of any worship, admiration, praise, or love. Seriously. Forcing someone to do something against his/her will is slavery, and having children is no exception to that. Of course, that just gives further credence to my belief that the Judeo-Christian “God” is one of the two most evil fictional villains in the history of literature (the other, of course, being the Allah of Islam, which many will argue is the same deity).
I can’t believe religious people sometimes, and especially religious breeders. They think they’re all high and mighty doing “God’s will” by pushing out as many children as possible, and anyone who doesn’t must be in rebellion against their deity of choice. Whatever. I’ve read the Bible and the Qur’an both and I can’t find anything against the childfree life in either, though I can see why some would interpret it that way. Alas, I guess it’s a good thing I’m an atheist. That way I don’t have to put up with any of that crap.
