    I wish Clinton had stepped down when he had an affair.

    Or Gerry Studds. Seems like the GOP voters hold their reps to a higher standard than the libbies do.

    Back up to your old tricks I see.

    How about posting a scandal about a Democrat just once?

    Problem is that no one has claimed that the Democrats have some sort of high moral ground while many claim that the Republicans are some how 'better.'

    Neither party has a monopoly on wickedness.

    Wasn't he responsible for some kind of abstinence only legislation?

    Actually, what I hear is that they do have the high ground, since the GOP claims to have "family Values". That makes the GOP sins worse. C.T.Boy HAS said this much, himself.

    In case you are wondering, the church he attends is part of the Church of United Brethren in Christ

    My first thought is for all :1_grouphug: to keep Mr. Souder in prayer, :praying:as well as his family.

    Maybe former Rep. Souder can take toe tapping dance lessons from former Senator Craig, or better yet, he can open a marriage counseling service with former New York Governor Spitz. In his spare time, Souder, Vitter, Craig, Foley, Edwards, Ensign, and President Clinton can form a new movement called the immoral majority.

    This is just false. On the run up to the 2008 election the Dems and especially Pelosi ran on the culture of corruption on the Republican Party. They most certainly did claim a moral high ground.

    Obama ran on an open and transparent government. He most certainly ran on a moral high ground.

    Of course the Dems have had scandal after scandal and Obama has not been transparent.

    So you have to be not paying attention to one side that you support more make such a statement.

    I think of Nathan's rebuke from God towards King David and especially the mention of continuous accusations being brought before God's throne because of David's sin.

    That is correct. The Democrats claim the higher moral ground in the area of corruption, while the Republicans claim a higher moral ground in the areas of family and religous values. The Democrats are just as guilty if not more so than the Republicans of pointing fingers and doing the exact same thing. To the American people who are depending on the politicians in power now to lead, an evil heart is an evil heart, it makes no difference which type of evil they major in.

    This is just my opinion, but lets face facts. The Lord is patient, but when He says enough, it is over. When He told Saul his reign was over, He was not kidding. Now, the Lord has blessed the United States more than any nation in history. The United States is sliding more and more into evil as time passes. Fifty years ago, we tried to at least hide our sins, same sex relationships and abortion for example, were at least hidden. We have progressed from that, to the sins becoming acceptable, to now, they are the official law of the land. To me, its like not only sinning, but rubbing God's nose in it. Look at it another way. In the OT, God destroyed nations that were a lot less blessed than ours for a lot less sinfulness.

    Getting back to the present situation, those who have such a lack of perception of history and current events, that they actually believe and support one of the present day two major parties to the point of making arguments of why one is closer to the Lord than the other. I doubt the Lord considers that a sweet aroma. So which one is more Godly, since they both steal from the American people, cheat, lie, do anything to hold onto political power, belittle the Bible, Christianity, and the Lord, and use issues like abortion, family values, cradle to grave care, promises of free money, not for a reason to serve the people, but to pander for votes. Our present politicians are the lowest form of humanity.

    It is amazing, that on a board such as this, with highly educated, for the most part, leaders of the Baptist faith, the such simple and niave opinions come forth.

    Rev. Mitchell, you are firm in your beliefs and right on target. We need more like you in positions of leadership.
