YEC and ID may be fellow brethren was -Re: [asa] Secularist

Really it is responses like this that make me wonder how deep your faith commitment is and
if you really can feel a bond in Christ to fellow Christians who take stands you disagree with.

For pity's sake the article Janice cites starts talking about a Lutheran pastor jailed because he compared abortion with
the holocaust. While comparing it to the holocaust is inflamentory, many Christians myself included would see
abortion as taking the life of unborn people and something abhorrent in the sight of God.

And I again resent your making general labels that do not fit all Creationists or ID. I am a Creationists (not a young earth variety but so what) and know and appreciate some ID people and don't need to ALWAYS hear you pick on them. As you well know they are not all of the same stripe. You are not enabling communication with brethren some of whom might be helped by ASA but I would hesitate to have them post hear because of the way some slam them.
