    From the same blog and same article we can read Mohler's comments about the radical pro abortion Obama and the democrat party!

    Crabby's concern for the Republican Party, evidenced by his many threads since the election, is heart wrenching. I am certain that concern is just as sincere as that he exhibits in regard to the continued slaughter of the unborn which his party celebrates.

    Old, again you go off topic. Start a thread on the topic of your reply please.

    The point is the Republicans must change their image in the eyes of the American people or they will become a footnote in history.

    I do not argue with Mohler in his comments you quoted, but they should be discussed in another thread.

    Also, please stop bringing up abortion in every topic. I am against abortion and against capital punishment ... so I am more pro-life than you. You are pro-life, or so you say, for the unborn. But your other stances make you pro-misery and pro-death for the living.

    A pathetic response Crabby. You deny you are pro abortion yet you support verbally and through your votes a rabidly pro abortion president and a party that celebrated the continual slaughter of unborn babies. Frankly I cannot accept your protestations of innocence.

    You make remarks about me that have no basis in fact. The democrat platform advocates the continuation of the slaughter of the unborn. There is nothing in the Republican platform or in remarks by Republican candidates that indicate a lack of concern for those in need. As Republicans we believe in individual freedom and responsibility. That is what Scripture teaches, particularly individual responsibility. For your edification, Crabby, I present the following:

    1 Timothy 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

    2 Thessalonians 3:6-12
    6. Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
    7. For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;
    8. Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:
    9. Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.
    10. For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
    11. For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.

    12. Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.


    Crabby the democrat party and the leftists which control it, the party you support, strives to make all mankind subservient to the state, not to the God you profess to serve. I believe that Scripture says to you and to all professing Christians:

    Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

    1 Kings 18:21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.


    So what say you Crabtownboy? Or will you stand mute before God as did the men of Israel before Elijah?

    I don't know how angry you have to be to look at someone who is saying they oppose abortion and yell at them saying they're lying and they support abortion.

    It's really sad.

    I kinda thought a Romney presidency would shut the "anti-abortion" crowd up, like Obama shut the war protestors up.

    There is no interest among the leadership of the Republican party in ending abortion on demand. If there were, the many opportunities they had to have done so would not have slipped through their hands. I think they've done what they've done deliberately, to keep it as a front burner issue, to keep the religious right pinned in a corner where it winds up giving almost unqualified support to GOP candidates in exchange for practically no cost politically to the party.

    You can see the level of respect the Republicans have for conservative Christians in everything they do, from a litany of broken promises, to nominating a cultist as a presidential candidate. What happens to the conservative, born again Christians who try to run? Where are they? Most likely kicked to the curb is where they are.

    Anyone who supports the democrat party at this time is supporting abortion and that is the truth. Sometimes the truth hurts doesn't it!

    In their last convention the democrats spent some time glorifying the slaughter of the unborn. This is worse than the pagans, and on occasion some Israelites, who caused their children to "pass through the fire".

    You are demonstrating your lack of knowledge of the legislative process. The Republicans took control of the House of Representatives in 2004, the first time in 40 years. They introduced and twice passed a bill to ban Partial Birth Abortion. The bill passed the Senate and went to "that good old Southern Baptist" Bill Clinton who twice vetoed the bill. When Bush was elected president the Republican Congress passed the bill for the third time and George Bush signed it into law.

    There existed the possibility that if Romney were elected president he would be able to appoint two Justices to the Supreme Court increasing the possibility of a Court decision reversing Roe v Wade.

    I know of no democrat who ever introduced legislation to ban any abortion procedure! Do You?

    A ban on partial birth abortion, which essentially did nothing, was not the goal. That was a bone thrown to quiet the dogs, and it wasn't much of a bone. Ronald Reagan originally promised to end abortion on demand. Reagan had promised "to appoint only those opposed to abortion and the 'judicial activism' of the Warren and Burger Courts". Those were his exact words. However, though his appointees alone could have tipped the court, his first appointee, Sandra Day O"Conner, was neither pro-life, nor anti-activist. As it turned out, she was the perpetual "swing vote." The argument about Robert Bork not being confirmed does not hold water. Congress eventually approved Anthony Kennedy, who had a stronger pro-life record than Bork did. If he'd stuck with his promise, and nominated someone other than O'Connor, the court would have overturned Roe before he left office.

    His successor, George H.W. Bush, was only "pro-life" to get elected. He nominated David Souter, who is one of the most liberal justices on the court, and not only pro-choice. Fearing Christians would not support his bid for re-election, he appointed Clarence Thomas, but that only put the court back to 5-4, pro-choice.

    The best chance to tip the balance came with George W. Bush. He had two shots at it, and a majority of both houses of Congress controlled by his party for six years. Shouldn't have been a problem. But Bush first went with John Roberts, who declared Roe v. Wade to be "the settled law of the land," and then attempted to appoint his White House counsel, Harriet Miers, who was favorable to both abortion on demand and gay marriage. Fortunately, conservatives derailed her appointment, and he wound up appointing Alito, but with Roberts as the "swing voter," after three GOP presidents, the Supreme Court is still 5-4 pro-abortion. I think that's because the Republicans want it that way.

    The reality of the situation is that the electorate must be converted or stricken. Sodom sought to kill Lot when he refused to let them rape his guests, and the Jews preferred Absalom over David and Barabbas over Jesus. The fault is not in a party that says no to women murdering their unborn children, to the sanctification and legitimization of sodomy, or to theft, oppression, poverty and slavery through taxes. The fault is in a gluttonous and idolatrous electorate.

    Maybe in 2010 when the Tea Party came about, we all should have jumped on board and maybe now it would have out grown the GOP. I say throw out the old GOP and make the Tea Party our party.

    The ban on Partial Birth Abortions was and is insufficient but it was passed and signed into law by Republicans.

    As for Supreme Court appointees no one knows how these people will rule until they get on the Court. Roe v Wade may be "settled law" as Roberts said but that does not mean he would not vote to overturn it. With Romney there was a possibility of another vote against Roe v Wade. With Obama there is none.

    In the meantime the American Holocaust continues whole professing Christians make excuses for voting for the party of death!

    Well, Jack Matthews, this is one time I agree with you. I quit giving to the Pro-Life groups a long time ago when I realized that during the GW Bush tenure during the several years when there was a Republican WH, and Republican majority Senate, and Republican majority House, the abortion issue could have been settled by Law. (Much as obamacare was passed to be the law of the land.) Every time the GOP calls me about donating and brings up the abortion issue, I remind them of these facts.

    Republicans have demonstrated they have no will to win the war, barely the will to win small battles, save for a handful who were Tea Party elected in 2010 - and I mean this goes for everything, every issue, not just abortion. Republicans are either inept or lack the fortitude to play hardball - even Mitt Romney just did not go there and that is part of the reason he lost.

    I have observed that there are a bunch of RINOs, who are not "conservative" by any means, in the Republican party, and they only put a conservative hat on when they think it will score political points, but their value system is really not conservative.

    Sorry to be off topic, CTB, but even with this Benghazi situation and the murders there.... The American people have demonstrated that they don't care about Benghazi and the media has all but forsaken the tragedy (except for Fox News). Republicans have held hearing after hearing and it makes great shots for FNC but basically, the American people do not care, a large part of the electorate don't even know who the VP is or that Hillary is SOS, and are completely happy bumbling along, living off whatever freebies they can get, and doing deals under the table to supplement the food stamps.

    In short, the American people (at least the majority of those who voted last month) don't care about aborted babies, do care they can get free abortions and birth control pills, do care about "free cell phones" etc., don't care about Benghazi, don't care about fiscal cliffs, don't care about illegal immigration, don't care about politics or the economy or our troops fighting in godless places, don't care about freedoms being taken away, don't care about jobs being lost, and just don't care, period. Anyway, that's my take on it, based on the election results.

    And guess what, I can see that BOTH parties are so corrupt, that our nation is so morally bankrupt, that I see America completely destroyed from within within the next generation or sooner.


    Edited to say:
    Amen. :tear:

    No you are not. You believe murderers should be left alive to kill again and again! That is DEFINITELY pro-death!

    No, not really. Most people don't understand that this isn't a matter of passing a bill. It would require a state passing legislation restricting abortion, and law suits going through the courts until it was appealed to the Supreme Court. If they decided not to hear it, the legislation would be nullified, and right now, with Roberts' position clear, it's at best 5-4 pro-choice. Congress cannot pass a law that violates the provisions of a decision upheld by the court.

    Romney suddenly became pro-life after a political career and record that established him as pro-gay marriage and pro-abortion. His position essentially depended on nothing but lip service. And his Mormon faith doesn't hold to a "life begins at conception" position. I wouldn't want to depend on a Mormon to deliver on this, but I don't think there would have been any worries. He had no intention of doing so.

    Being a constituency in the Republican party, the Christian right has gained nothing. It has loyally supported the GOP. In return, it is expected to help raise money and get out votes, but in return, it has received next to nothing. The party, knowing the sensitivity of conservative Christians when it comes to their faith and doctrine, allowed a Mormon, cult follower to be nominated for President instead of one of their own. What does that tell you?

    I can agree with you up to a point, but:

    He was nominated because he won the primary.

    I admit, we had a pretty pitiful field to pick from, though.
