It doesn't matter if they were rhetorical or not, it says volumes about how sick you are, that you'd rather your children DIE than find out they did something you didn't like.<quoted text>Deception is the name of the proabort game.
The original converation regarding this "what if" scenerio came up and I was questioned if my daughter wanted an abortion,would I still love her.
My response was I would LOVE my children no matter what they did. I specifically said that I would NEVER support her aborting no matter what. In fact, the topic being discussed too was if one of our kids told us that they were gay,would we accept that. My specific answer was NO. I would LOVE my children but in no way,shape or form,would I EVER condone what we believed went against God. No more or less(I said)then if my child became involved in drugs. I wouldn't ACCEPT or CONDONE it.(neither the drugs of homosexuality would be a cause that I would rather my child die than to do that though,but KILLING is permanent) I would LOVE my child no matter what especially since I was a sinner too.
Then,it went off into this spiraled out of control garbage. Interestingly,every time the topic got regurgitated,I mentioned that I even explained this conversation to my daughter when she was near me during one of these such conversations. She said "I WOULD NEVER KILL MY CHILD NOR WOULD IT EVER ENTER MY MIND". She even said that if she was so insane to do so,that she'd wish she be dead first before she ever had a chance to kill her child.
I also added another scenerio where I'd rather my son be dead(peacefully in his sleep of course)then to find out he raped,tortured and killed women.
It was ALL rhetorical questions.
