  1. There's a great YouTube series called "Pitch Meeting," where a movie producer and screenplay writer (played by the same person) have hilarious exchanges about major movies as though they are first being pitched. Often the producer will question the screenwriter when the main character does something completely out of character. His answer is usually: "Because the story needs to happen," which is typically followed up with "I'm going to need you to get all the way off my back about that." The producer always says "well, okay then", and the pitch continues. While a funny
  2. Yes, abortion is murder. No, the remains of this particular fetus was not directly used to for medical experimentation. In fact, I feel the way in which it was (very) indirectly used actually redeemed a horrible act without perpetuating it into a new industry. In the end, the choice is yours.
  3. So my question to you is why would you reject a vaccine in which fetal cells had nothing to do in the development or manufacture, but one test utilized a fetal cell line? If someone murdered me 50 years ago, I'd hope that the perpetrator would someday be brought to justice. But if scientists cloned my cells to help test a vaccine that one day saved millions of lives, I'd be okay with that. I also found it interesting (but not critical to my decision) that "the Vatican issued clear guidance that permits Roman Catholics in good faith to receive COVID-19 vaccines that us
  4. All information says that the vaccines DO NOT contain fetal material.
  5. Again, not exactly. Here's a quote from the extended source in the article: "But it's important to have the full context: Fetal cell lines are not the same as fetal tissue. When it comes to the COVID-19 vaccines currently approved for emergency use, neither the Pfizer nor Moderna vaccines used fetal cell lines during the development or production phases. (So, no fetal cell lines were used to manufacture the vaccine, and they are not inside the injection you receive from your doctor.) However, both companies used the fetal cell line HEK 293 in the confirmation phase to e
  6. Well, not exactly: "These fetal cell lines are not taken from recent abortions, but are derived from decades old fetal cells. These cells replicate over decades in laboratory settings, thousands of times removed from the original fetus cells, becoming known as fetal cell lines."
  7. Just make sure you discuss any "research" with your doctor. There's a lot of well-meaning, but uninformed opinions going around. I've gone through the first (Pfizer) shot with no issues. I know numerous people who have been completely vaccinated with no issues. I know someone who had COVID, and while she didn't suffer any dire consequences, has "long-haul" issues like loss of taste and smell. If you get COVID, odds are good that you'll be okay. But why gamble with it? Just get vaccinated and remove any doubts.
  8. You know how that old children's book goes: "If you give a mouse a cookie..."
  9. I'm getting concerned that this topic is drifting way too much into controversial theological issues. Churches have split over these issues. We're just a writer's forum. Besides, wasn't this topic about our favorite coming of age movies?
  10. My cat does all my typing. Might explain why my editor hates me.
  11. Quite some drift here. That'll teach me to post links containing bad language.
  12. "Dumb as a bag of hammers" always makes me laugh.
  13. My very favorite (Scottish) YouTube commentator on the world of entertainment is The Critical Drinker. In the wake of this year's deplorable Oscar's, he posted a commentary on the current state of Hollywood that I couldn't agree more with. Warning: The Critical Drinker is not a Christian commentary, and this piece (occasionally) uses bad language. But he hits the nail squarely on the head.
