    I never thought of Nancy as that conservative or as Christian. Remember, she's the one who used an astrologer.

    Should we be impressed with Nancy Reagon's opinion? She consulted astrologers in the WH! She advised her husband according to occult charts. We are warned repeatedly to avoid giving audience to such influences. It is among the chief practices which God abhors. Without knowing that she respects God.... I have no confidence in her opinion, advice, or judgement......and sufficient reason to doubt!

    As regarding embryonic stem cell research....... I don't doubt but what it is evil by design. Perhaps some are placated thinking it is only clumps of cells which will be lost anyway, 'unintended extras left over from attempts at fertility.... but they don't know the evil imaginations of science which finds ways to expand on this resource....and will.....now that the restraint is removed from applications.

    LeBuick why do you not have faith that God will provide cures for these illness that do not require the destruction of other innocent human life?

    Why are you so on the bandwagon for the killing of human life in this manner?

    I just don't get it.

    Especially coming from someone who claims to be a pastor.

    I am mystified.

    Unfortunately, Ronald Reagan was the only true conservative in the entire family. Nancy, his daughter (I don't know her name), & Ron are not conservatives.

    His adopted son (Michael) is more of Republican cheerleader than a conservative. When I used to listen to the Mike Reagan Show, he didn't seem to care much about the true conservative candidates running. One time I called in on his show to ask him about his opinion on Pat Buchanan. All he could say to me was that "he needs to run for dog catcher before running for president."

    You beat me to this one Marcia.

    But, I would like to point out that most progressives, (this is the politically correct name for liberals), believe that astrology is just as valid of a religious belief as christianity is. In fact, I think a good number of them would believe the stars long before they believe the Bible.

    I always wondered what Ronnie saw in that woman.

    I think generally that is true. But there are Republican astrologers, believe it or not. The woman who gave a lot of money to the astrology assoc. I was in and who bought 2 buildings for us was a conservative Republican. I also knew a numerologist who was one, too. In the crowd I was in, however, politics was not a big topic except for analyzing the charts of political leaders.

    Ronnie was a libbie until they got him on medication and got it under control. Apparently the rest of the family refused the medication.

    I was not endorsing the research, Nancy Reagan did. Did you read it?

    Do you believe God provides some of our advancements via research? I don't recall many cures just mysteriously appearing one day. We usually researched and came up with the cure.

    I have never seen a study proving progressives have a particular religious preference. Do you have a link?

    Thanks for asking instead of just assuming like others... My understanding of "adult" stem cell research is that the cells come from adult tissues. If that is the case, I see no problem with it.

    So conservatism is the result of being on drugs. Interesting view, but it explains a lot! :tongue3:

    Maybe Clinton would be conservative if he had inhaled?

    "When I was in England, I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and I didn't like it. I didn't inhale and never tried it again." –Bill Clinton

    Endorse? No my impression is that your position on embryonic stem cell research which destroys life is that it is a "necessary" evil.

    Yes, I do believe that God provides.

    I am asking why you do not trust that God will provide the same advances without the evil of destroying life to accomplish them.
