    "Democrats have an anti-religion problem. In fact, they have such a serious anti-religion problem that in 2004 they had to bring a leftist pastor named Jim Wallis to try to teach Democrat congressmen how to use "God talk" in their campaign speeches. This pathetic effort failed as will a new disinformation campaign called "Red Letter Christians." Wallis, founder of the left-wing Sojourners group, and self-described "progressive evangelical" Tony Campolo, have just founded a liberal front organization called the "Red Letter Christians." Wallis, Campolo, Father Richard Rohr, "Emergent Church" pioneer Brian McLaren, Dr. Cheryl J. Sanders, Rev. Noel Castellanos, and others met recently to form this new pseudo-evangelical group. These "Red Letter Christians" are supposedly trying to alert American Evangelicals to the importance of living the words of Jesus as highlighted in red in many Bibles. Their idea of living the words of Jesus, however, is somehow reinterpreted to mean support for every liberal political agenda on the horizon."

    Then why are all the Republicans rubbing elbows with all the movie stars and liberals, those crossing the fence out of Mexico and Cuba trying to get their vote.

    You bundle Democrats up in one bunch when we are just as Christian as you and any other Republican. If you have your head stuck in the sand and can't see how your friends the Republican will do anything and especially "lie" about anything to get elected and then you all play Miss goody two shoes.

    I could say a lot more but I find it very offensive that a REV would condemn people on their politics. I don't see you all kicking out those Republicans that are liberal.

    I wonder how low either side would stoop to get votes and that certainly includes Republicans.

    Would you call the genocide of millions of Native Americans a Christian act?

    Wait! Wait! Let me get this straight, only Republicans can use religion as a pretense to support thier agenda and Democrats cannot. That is jut plain un-American, who wrote these rules anyway. RM, you should be a Morman so you can have your own world to rule over.

    I would suggest that you begin to think like a Christian rather than a radical Republican.

    Bush is not a democrat, you must have gotten confused somehow.

    His government spending policies have been as socialistic as any Democrat president we have ever had.

    Democrats like most Americans have a sin problem (I should include myself in this).

    We need to repent and turn back to the Lord, while we still can.

    Did he turn our country back to God? If not then he needs to keep using that tool or get a bigger and better one!

    IMHO.

    Organized Liberals wanting to show themselves as more Christian?

    Well maybe cudo's can be given for at least "trying"?? Yes, the Lord's word is "radical" to many! Otherwise abortion and such would have never been legalized and/or could have been corrected by now. However, apparently this is something the Liberals, now calling themselves "Red-Letter christians" won't allow??? Not even partial birth??? The murder of a fully developed baby, if the TRUTH be told!


    To quote a famous American sodier during World War II. "NUTS!"

    God help us during the elections!:praying:
