"GOP candidates debate religion"Boy - talk about a recipe
for a circular firing squad.Time to make some popcorn and get a good
Ron Paul was quoted as saying ..."which means Congress should never
prohibit the expression of your Christian faith in a public place."Perhaps he meant to say "which means Congress should never prohibit
the expersssion of any person's faith in a public place." Christians are no more special than any other religion in the eyes of the
Constitution. I know there's a lot of Ron Paul fans out there, but how can you
defend a statement like that? Does my Buhddist co-worker not have a place in
this country? Do my agnostic co-workers have no place here, either?
Could someone explain how an evangelical Baptist (Herman Cain, Tim Pawlenty, Ron
Paul) differs from a Baptist, and how an evangelical Lutheran, (Michele
Bachmann) differs from a Lutheran?I hear the word 'evangelical' all
the time, usually associated with the far right wing of the GOP, but what does
being an evangelical actually mean? Thanks.
Herman Cain just lost my support. :P
Not that he had it in the first place...
So while billions are lost in Iraq, people are still dying in Afghanistan,
health care stinks, Medicare is on the brink of imploding, SS falling apart with
the retiring baby boomers, the economy stagnates, gas prices hit $4 dollars per
gallon, the rich continue to get richer (while everyone else struggles), the
mighty and concerned GOP argues about religion. This must be a sick
joke, right? Someone please tell me I'm dreaming.Anyone else getting
tired of his nonsense?
I wish one of them, just one, had the stones to tell their opponents that
religion is personal and doesn't belong in the political arena.
Mitt was right in keeping the issue neutral. If you take any position that
fosters one religious idealogy over another (including Muslims) you get yourself
in trouble. I think Herman Cain got himself mired in an issue he won't easily
get himself out of. Mitt gave the best answer because he knows from experience
that those who have strong opinions about religion could easily turn against
Latter-Day Saints the next time.
Mayfare;Back in the day, it was "High Church" and "Low
Church" It had to do with claim of authority. "High Church" had
a claim on line of authority. i.e. Roman Catholic, Episcopal, Orthodox Catholic,
etc. "Low Church" or Evangelical claimed authority only from the
2011 Republican party. Where. Are. The. Jobs?
2011 Democrat Party...Where are the jobs...? Obama, anything...?
Yeah I didn't think so.
It seems like Americans learned nothing from 9/11. The religious extremists
tried not once but twice to bring down the "Twin Towers" These
extremists mixed their religious beliefs with politics. Lets hope & pray
that all Bible believing Americans are not gonna try & elect a
President...because he/she belongs to your Church. A Bible believer CAN or CAN'T
be a great President, but just check out & look at where we are today with
an Evangelical at the White House? It's not his religious beliefs to blame. He
is a powerful speaker but that didn't give us "changes" that he
promised but changes that put many Americans out of work. Lets elect someone
with a proven record creating jobs. May God Save/Bless America
