    They think they are the only Christians in America. After all "How could a Democrat be a Christian?" By asking such questions they expose just what they are, self-righteous politically driven people who really don't care about the gospel at all. Like the Scribes and Pharasees of Jesus' time they are not really Christians but politicians who use their false gospel for political ends. Like the Scribes and Pharasees they will not fare well at the Judgement.

    To play along with your analogy: The Democrats are the modern day equivalent of the Sadducees. As to how they will fare at the judgment - that isn't my business to decide.

    If they are, then do as they say, according to Jesus [Matthew 23:3].

    Hello StraightAndNarrow! I am a Christian. I also am a conservative republican who has never claimed people of such political view are the only Christians! Nor do I question the faith of others! Most assuredly not in the sanctimonious manner you did above.

    I, and am sure most, would appreciate an apology! Also do you pretend to know who Jesus has written in the book of life? Or are you just going to tell Him how it is, at the Judgement?




    Republicans are against abortion. Democrats and Liberals are for it.

    Republicans are for family tradition and sanctity of marriage. Democrats and Liberals support gay marriage and such issues.

    Republicans are against euthanasia. Liberals apparently are for such.

    We strive to keep our Lord's authority recognized within the Government and by our Representatives. Liberals would like to remove all references to our Lord within the public.

    We would like some/any Christian influence within the schools for our children. To offset the secular, atheistic and many pagan things taught. Or at least the choice of a partial refund of our tax dollars. In order to be able to afford sending our children to a private Christian school. The Democrats and Liberals will not tolerate any such thing!




    Now why do you vote Liberal Democrat again?


    Please don't forget the apology!:jesus:

    Thisd is totally absurd

    Straight ad Narrow, you owe no one an apology. Ralph III has implied that Democrats have no Christian values and provides 0% facts to back it up. Same ol same ol. Ralph III has also described many Republicans in his assault in the end they are all alike, They change with the wind.

    I have implied no such thing! Just stated the facts and how the politicians views and votes fall! Correct me if I am wrong! In addition I have always been very steady with my views. I, nor anyone, can control what a politician does after entering office.

    But again I do not judge others faith. You will not find any such post from me! Nor have I ever claimed republicans or democrats are or are not Christian. The original post is stupid and poor in nature! Apology please!:jesus:

    And where did you get your facts from? Ralph you are just generalizing and repeating what right wing pundits always say.

    If we are honest with ourselves, we will admit that there's not a nickel's worth of difference between the two parties. Bush could just as well have been a democrat.

    There were and are neocon democrats, and they are no less dangerous to our way of life than republican ones.

    The only reason to hope for a democrat win this time around, is to put a limit on the uncontrolled expansion of federal power, and the erosion of our God-given rights.

    If we put the democrats wholly in control of government, they would soon drift into the same sewer.

    Wow! you only understood it as implications. And here I thought it was cut and dry.

    These are values that we are critisized as standing for ans which creates such hatred from the left. And if those values cause you to badmouth us then so be it. It will upset me so bad I wont have more than two omletts for breakfast in the morning.

    Am not badmouthing anyone just pointing out the usual ranting of the right wing media that you seem to adhere to. You don't do such a bad job badmouthing on your own though.:sleep:

    Well said, Galatian, and right on. Unfortunately.

    Furthermore, I would like to add, how long have we had a Republican controlled Congress and a Republican Administration now, and despite all the rhetoric, the unborn babies are still being ripped apart piece by piece (without even the "humane" benefit of being given something to ease their pain) as they are suctioned from the wombs of their mothers. Republicans talk a good talk about being pro-life but actions (or inactions) speak louder than words and their record proves it.

    Galatian is correct. The 'best' federal work is done when there is a two-party system sharing the power. The 'worst' is when either party controls both the presidency and the legislative branch. Next best is when at at least the House is composed of the "loyal opposition."

    A Democratic sweep in November would return some balance.

    And, I regret that due to the Democrat planks regarding abortion and marriage.

    See, here's the problem, I am a democrat but sure don't support gay marriage or any of these things. You're slinging mud with too wide a brush then don't like the back spray.

    I think Strait and Narrow has a valid point after viewing some of the threads here. The icing was when a Democrat claimed to be a Christian and you guys said it was an election ploy. We're supposed to believe Bush is a Christian why can't a democrat be one??? If God can firgive him for cocaine and heavy drinking why can he forgive Clinton for not exhaling???

    I wonder if we Christians should stop being members of or supporting any political party? It appears to divide the body of Christ.

    What do ya'll think?

    RevM - has the current administration stopped the murder of innocent unborn?

    Has the current administration passed the Defense of Marriage?

    How does one determine whether a government is without God? And, once that determination is made, where does this administration fit?

    Thanks!
