[Discussing women taking drugs to avoid the pain of childbirth.]

Don't worry. The pain you avoid here will be administered to you in hell, unless you repent and come to Christ as personal savior.

So, if I take drugs to avoid the pains of childbirth and then, after all kids I want in my life are born, accept Jesus as my savior, I can avoid all of these pains altogether while at the same time avoiding going to hell?

aaa

Try surgery without anesthesia.

Can we see the math on this one? How is taking drugs to avoid the pain of childbirth a ticket straight to hell? It's not like the mother is aborting the child.

Don't worry, hell is a lie. So phew... no need to worry about that eternal damnation! :D

Yeah. Sure, whatever...

@anevilmeme: IIRC, after the original sin, Eve was cursed to give birth in pain. So, in fundie logic, taking the pain out of childbirth goes against God's will.

Drugs don't stop the pain, dickhead, they just stop them getting to the brain to be felt so effectively.

May I break your nose and say the same thing to you?

I thought this was settled in 1908.

I vote that we stop including quotes from comments to FSTDT unless they are from a known fundy. I suspect this one is a POE who was simply poeing another Poe.

Fuck off and die, OlHenry.

I don't get it. We give patients painkiller when we carry out regular surgery, but then when it comes to childbirth you have one bunch of idiots saying the woman has to feel pain because it's the WILL OF GAWD, another saying women have to feel pain because it's natural, and yet another touting that the pain "prepares her for motherhood".

...: It's all pretty mysogenistic. I imagine they're all the same people that think couples should be hetrosexual and be baby machines.

This must be... ah, yes. The poster was male.

If the woman can't have pain-killers, I suppose you're working the fields for food or you're going down too.

How can these people not recognize their misogyny? I don't get it! Aaaaaaaaaahhh!!! (shift!!!one!1!!!two)

Obvious troll is painfully obvious.

Hell is a figment of sick imaginations.

painkilling drugs are the closest thing in existence to a God.

Allegory for Jesus

Do they really think that saying "You gonna burn in HEEEELLLL" is at all effective? Coercive fearmongering isn't going to work on us, and shouldn't work on any mature adult with any perspective on how improbable the statement they present as fact truly is.

I swear that they just speak of hellfire and brimstone for their own sadistic glee, and in some bizarre attempt to assure themselves that they have made the right choice. And that's just sad...

JESUS PLEASE COME SOON!

Christianity: If you're not completely miserable, you're going to hell.

7/3/2008 2:09:21 PM



Says the person who will never have to deal with the pain of childbirth. Shut the heck up.

"Don't worry. The pain you avoid here will be administered to you in hell, unless you repent and come to Christ as personal savior."

What a lovely theology you have there. I can't imagine why you had to gain converts by force or coercion for all those centuries...
