” So you are a Christian but you disregard what the Bible says about murder ? Why would we advocate for murder under the guise of “choice” . Why disregard the science that specifically states there is a human life in the womb ? Abortion is the intentional killing of that life in the womb. This has nothing to do with religion but rather the sanctity of life. The right to kill an innocent human is not a right provided to us. Lastly the overturning of roe v Wade simply returns the decision to the state.”
” Wow. Tell me you’re not following Jesus Christ of Nazareth, without telling me.”
Some supported him by saying
“Yes, yes and yes! Forcing holiness on others but not even walking righteous”
