Subject: You be earth, I'll be moon--such a distance from one another...

And then color me optimistic that we agree on many tasks at hand as we move along our ways. Now, to our conversation...
I did single myself out, Bee: my point, exactly. To lump unnamed numbers into groups and crowds does little to respect the individual. And since we're talking right now about respecting every one individual (in this instance, Mrs. Schiavo) , is that not the point?!

...the ability to identify with a group just because it has been singled out for supporting something that is morally wrong.

That I am pro-life and don't pretend to play god, king or otherwise to force my spiritual beliefs and/or personal life decision onto another as the supreme judge is morally wrong? Allow me to very vocally disagree, please.

No one singled you out Deb. You made that decision.

Once again, indeedy, I did. Reiterating that I'm okay to be pro-life, pro-choice and disagree with the concept of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube being removed, from what I have heard.

Still, to speak of nebulous groups and crowds is an easy out, in my opinion, and does little or nothing for the solution toward any ultimate understanding.
