    Hello

    I just noticed that there was a Bush-Cheney banner at the bottom of each page on this site. What about all the baptists and other christians who are supporting Kerry? Shouldn't this entire board promote both campaigns or is it assumed that everybody on this board is a Bush voter and not a Kerry voter (which has to be false)?

    I am a bit confused. Please help me here.

    Thanks
    Corinne

    This is a privately owned board. Until a few days ago, the owner only had the banners from the Constitution Party. He has since donated space for 50,000 Bush Banners compared to 500,000 CP banners.

    Yes, but this is giving the impression that all Baptists are Bush voters and agree with the Bush Administration. I doubt this is true, is it? Why impose one side on the other? Christianity has nothing to do with politics, and Jesus Christ was neither a liberal or a conservative.

    As far as being a private board, ok, but we, the posters, are the people who make this board and its forums work, so all political views should have the chance to express themselves, we should not be imposed one view in particular.

    Neither Kerry or Bush seem like genuine Christians to me. Neither one should be given priority over the other on this Christian board, in my humble opinion (hey but that is just me).

    If you would like, you can purchase and sponsor Kerry-Edwards banners, if you would wish. it is, indeed, a private board.

    Corinne, since you're in London, should you even be concerned? :confused:

    No..... all political views should NOT be free to express themselves in free adv. on this board! Should we allow those who condone homosexual marriages or abortion? No thank you!

    But President Bush has a long record of homosexual appointments, including the American ambassador to Romania. Should that be condoned?

    In fact, Jesus Christ is pro-life. That makes Him conservative on the abortion issue. [​IMG]

    Corrine,

    They have a Kerry banner already. Didn't you see the banner for the Constitution Party? :D

    The reason for no Kerry Edwards banner is they don't want to make everyone sick. Kudos to them.

    Hi Diane

    There are baptists everywhere Diane, including abroad. And not all baptists are americans, so why shouldn't I care about what is, or what is not, on this board? After all the influence of the President of the USA is so great over the rest of the planet that it is almost a duty to be concerned about the obvious bias shown by displaying a banner and not the other, despite the fact that both men are christians and NONE OF THEM is a baptist!!!
    LOL

    Of course i could, but it would not be displayed on this board next to the Bush Cheney banner, would it? (which was my point)

    By the way, i find very odd the fact that nearly 7 million americans abroad, with among them many christians, surely, and probably a lot of baptists too among them, are presently forbidden to access George Bush's official campaign website, whereas they can access John Kerry's.

    So much for democracy.

    (From thread title by corinne:)
    OK, I'll bite; where did this come from?

    corinne further sez:
    "Pears to me that you're contridicting yourself.

    corinne further sez:
    If you've paid any attention at all to the politics section you will see your beliefs validated!!

    corinne further sez:
    I beg to differ ; Christianity has everything to do with politics; if Christians were, and had been, more involved in politics in years past, we would not have abortion as a "RIGHT" today. We would not have judges legislating from the bench rather than enforcing law. Pornography would not be "socially acceptable"! etc, etc, ad infinitum!

    As to Jesus being liberal or conservative, you're probably correct. However if you look at what He taught & practised, you would have to conclude that He sure did lean in a certain direction. I'll leave you to determine which way He leaned.

    Just be sure to notice not only His aims & goals, but also his methods. Be extremely aware of methods He DID NOT USE.!

To say that a republican or a conservative is systematically pro life is obviously a mistake: we all know that George Bush Junior made one of his girlfriends abort a baby when he was young. Was he pro life then? No he only became pro life when it suited him. When he became "born again" maybe? Talk about flip-flopping...

    Seriously, there are pro lifers among democrats and pro choicers among conservatives. Your manichean thinking is very far from the love of Christ. Do you think Jesus would reject someone because he is pro choice?

    The 'obvious bias' you claim to see on this board is in your own eyes. The board owner has openly stated that he supports the Conservative party.

    Check out the 'poll' 'Exit Poll: If the election were today'. Only 4 members of this board admitted they would vote for Kerry. 11 said they will vote for Michael Peroutka and the rest who plan to vote are voting for George W. Bush.

    On what do you base your remark that 'both of them are Christians'? Kerry refused to answer concerning his faith and is not even allowed to take communion in the catholic church he attends because of his abortion views. Have you found a statement from him with his salvific testimony made public?

    You're relating a persons conversion as flip-flopping?? Wow. What an ignorant statement.

    First of all, that was my earlier point too, none of us can be sure of what is really in any of these men's hearts. All I can say is that none of them strikes me as a genuine Christian (or they would not serve money, they would serve God), but they both say that they are. Kerry extensively talked about his faith during the third debate. i am not saying I entirely believe him but I believe George Bush even less.

    Both may think they are Christians, and a lot of people think they are, I am just not sure I recognize the fruits of the faith in what they say or do.

    That said, i strongly believe that there are Christians who are more pure or more impure than others. After all, whoever believes in Christ is called a Christian so that also makes the devil a Christian doesn't it (although the most impure of all)....
