Re: Response to one of Carl's postings herein... I'll respond to you by saying first off that there is nothing on your part to be forgiven for, you are free to express your opinion and I respect you for that (and the others here who do the same). As for considering your own logic, as a "liberal" I am by nature quite open-minded to other views, am intent on seeking the truth in all matters, and therefore have not resolved my own moral position on this issue since there are clearly two sides to it. I'm also simply stating in some of my arguments the liberal point of view (which could be seen negatively as "the party line"), but in this case one that apparently still has the force of US law behind it (i.e., Rowe vs. Wade). Which is far more clear, for example, than debates about whether Kerry or Bush are truly "good men".
