    The main and more important point is did he still hold that view later on as president?

    Your wuesques is bogus because all we have is this racist tape. Ask those questions once other evidence emerges. This is a racist rant and I'm mighty glad you agree.

    Adios

    I am sure that we have testimony from others concerning how he viewed this issue later on!

    Have you ever read the OT. Not sure I like what you're saying about the true God, or those that would obey Him.

    Yes, Arminians were and are known as Reformed, just not the perverted deterministic/predestination model of it. Some say they held the correct doctrines in the reformation. ;)

    ...not that Agent47 would know this... and since it is not common knowledge that was a rather strange way to annouce one's belief if they didn't understand this or have a stake in the argument...Just sayin...

    Does the fact that Reagan had black teammates on his college football team stay at his house when the local hotel would not let them stay there mean anything?
    Does the fact that Reagan appointed more blacks to government positions in California when he was governor than all previous governors combined mean anything?

    Would not be seen as Reformed in the contemporary sense of the term though!

    Can't stand the faulty logic of Calvinism. I tried and I just couldn't.

    Of course I know Calvinism is an idol

    When you are an extreme left winger on statement erases all of that. See their ideologies cannot win in the marketplace of ideas so they need this type of rhetoric to try and make up the difference.

    This seems like a very ironic application of the long-discredited "one drop theory" loved by racists. One racist comment (and that one apparently by Reagan certainly was racist), no matter what a person has done during the rest of his/her life, brands that person as absolutely a racist, closet or otherwise.

    The total essence of the left — pick the 1% that fits their agenda & ignore the 99% that doesn’t !!!
    They believe(??) “If I ignore it, it ain’t true!!
