Ryan is a good man, but does not redeem the abortionist/homosexualist statist Romney
Aug 11, 2012 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 08/11/2012 4:42:48 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Except for his unfortunate go along to get along support of TARP, bailouts, stimulus spending and the increased credit limit, etc, Ryan is a pretty good choice. Probably the best choice of the RINOS that were on Romney's short list. I support Ryan for the vice presidency. Wish he were at the top of the ticket, though.

But I still cannot and will not support the grand father of ObamaCare. Romney still loves and brags about his bastard brainchild, RomneyCare, even today when he knows what an anti-liberty socialist POS it is.

And the fact that he advocated that abortion should be safe and legal in America for over three decades of his adult lifetime and even advocated that Roe v Wade should be supported and sustained as settled law precludes any consideration whatsoever by this pro-life Christian for Myth Romney for the presidency.

And the fact that he boasted that he would be better for "gay rights" than Ted Kennedy, and proved it just increases my resistance.

That, and his penchant for gun control, his continuing support for global warming, gays in the scouts, gays in the military, and his record of appointing liberal judges makes it all but impossible for me to support him.

Lastly, we're having a bit of changeover on our moderator staff. At least two moderators resigned this afternoon after I flatly refused to rein in a so-called anti-Mormon "bigot" on FR. Well, if being in opposition to false prophets and false prophecy makes a Christian believer a bigot, then I guess I'm a bigot. I've posted before that I flat do not believe that the Book of Mormon is the true word of God. Nor do I believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. The Christian bible warns us to be weary of false prophets and that I am. Romney being the presumptive Republican nominee does not change that fact.

I do not owe my POTUS vote to the GOP as currently constituted and the GOP will not get it. I owe absolutely nothing to the Romney pom pom girls who think I owe them my vote for their candidate. I don't and won't.

Spot on!!!

Psssst! With all this judgmental bickering and all going on, has anyone told 'em that the the only ones going to heaven anyway is the Class of '98? Maybe we shouldn't tell them. :)

If you are going to use the Bible to back up your claims, at least use the WHOLE Bible, and not just the part you think supports your contentions:

And then you pull out a line of Scripture rather than FINISH the one I posted. Was that because you realized that taking all 5 verses of Scripture within the context of my original post doesn't support your own hypocrisy? Matthew 7:

1  Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. Mk. 4.24
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

Duncan Hunter wasn’t a serious candidate, he was retiring and wanted the publicity to keep his 28 year congressional seat in the family, his son, Duncan Hunter naturally won, beating the Navy SEAL that might have been a threat, and Duncan senior has not been heard from since.

I live in their district and always vote Hunter.

Pissant creepily worshiped Duncan Hunter as a sort of father figure or something, and did not understand that he was a good congressman, but he was never going to be a Governor, or a Senator, or a President, and especially not the year that he was retiring from politics for good, and not looking to start another career.

You are a very kind person, but I do not need the apologies of anyone on this site.

For them to have truly hurt me, I would have to have some degree of sentiment invested in them and I assure you, there is none.

I told the story of my father to simply explain how I came to believe the things I do. I was taught.

I won’t share too many details about my past here, mainly because of the group of folks who seem obsessed with picking apart everything or everyone they disagree with. My mother escaped with me and my siblings to the United States where we lived with family and for years, did not know my father’s fate.

Raised to believe the United States was where we would be safe, I believe it to this day.

Don’t take their attacks on me or Jews too personally. They are limited by their lack of education, narrow-mindedness and hatred, whether they realize it or not.

Thank you again.

I get my hackles up over injustice and cruelty. That's why I defended you. It's good to know you are tough enough to take care of that yourself. I imagine that's why your father survived.

The number of good people here far exceeds the number of mean ones. I'm essentially a sensitive individual and perhaps too idealistic for this world. I'll finish this post with a couple of my favorite quotes:

"Write injuries in sand, kindnesses in marble." [French Proverb]

"Great leaders are those who inspire greatness in others." [Anonymous, possibly Confucius paraphrased]

"In spite of everything, I still believe that people are good at heart." [Anne Frank]

"Let it roll off your back like water off a duck." [My Father]

Actually, it’s called discernment. When you post ugliness, hatred, vitriol, and worse, you don’t deserve to think of yourselves as even worthy of being an apprentice of either Paul or Peter.

Your behavior more exemplifies the father of lies.

Why do so many here fail to obey the Word?

Because you refuse to follow Christ's teaching.

Matthew 7:

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Romans 2

1 You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things.
2 Now we know that God’s judgment against those who do such things is based on truth.
3 So when you, a mere human being, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God’s judgment?
4 Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?

Me too...

The first time I visited Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, was 1988...

before that I was too poor to go...

I saved for years to visit “the Bible land”...

Always for me it was “next year, Jerusalem”...

To ansel12 "You owe an apology to anyone who read your snotty little bigoted posts. I cannot believe they have been allowed to stand. Your posts are unconscionable. You disgust me and so does Free Republic."

Yes, of course, you are too good, too pure and humble for the world, sweetness walks among us, we are graced with your gentle presence and gracious speech.

Three full days, now... and the collective kicking, screaming tantrum against this site's conservatives (to say nothing of its conservative owner) wails and blubbers and snivels unabated.

A genuine embarrassment to conservatism.

Pathetic.

I haven't read the actual book since my grade school days, aeons ago... but, in the film version, at least, I seem to recall a bemused Willy Wonka blandly informing Veruca's father that she'd been sent "to where ALL the bad eggs wind up." ;)

Is it even possible for you to make a comment without patting yourself on the back for being the greatest Christian alive?

Go take a running leap at yourself.

Jackass.

Do you not understand how someone can recognize when a person is being cruel to another and yet still be too idealistic, ansel?

Please don't waste your time on me. I won't respond to further posts from you as I'm obviously too ignorant to comprehend your gentle guidance anyway. You have much bigger "fish" to fry.

Let me explain this reaaaaalllly slow for you so you understand.

JimRob is the one who ‘decided’ — the brouhaha is over the last paragraph in his article at the beginning of this thread. And it was people like you who got into an uproar over mormonism being called a cult, even though there have been mormonism threads on FR for a decade. Where were you when these threads were posted?

I am going to be blatantly honest here: no one really cared about your anti-mormon conspiracy theories disguised as christian identity issues when they were buried in the Religion forum.

The Religion forum sidebar is not readily accessed from FR's homepage. You have to do some stuff to make it show up. People can discuss conservative issues, activism, and news posts for over a decade without viewing a single Religion thread.

We're supposed to be united in conservatism and not nitpicking each others' different religions since we're supposed to be pro-G-d and pro-life here as part of all the things that make up the conservative political movement.

When the bigotry migrated from the Religion forum to News/Activism forum is when the trouble started. You don't like Romney? Debate his platform, his past, his voting record, etc. with other conservatives.

But when you make it about Romney's RELIGION in the BREAKING NEWS SECTION of the highest traffic conservative website completely unchecked and not moderated, you just labeled ALL of us conservative Freepers as bigots to the outside world.

Take the anti-Mormon conspiracy theory stuff back to the Religion forums where it belongs. Stop posting it in any News/Activism thread mentioning a Mormon like petulant children throwing temper tantrums.

First, they aren’t anti-mormon, they’re anti-mormonism. Second, if it were the lunatics who made it about anti-mormons, that makes you folks the lunatics.

Strawman argument and factually untrue.

You cannot separate Jews from Judaism.

You cannot separate Mormons from Mormonism.

You cannot separate Catholics from Catholicism.

You cannot separate Christians from Christianity.

You cannot separate Protestants from Protestantism.

You cannot separate Evangelicals from Evangelical Christianity.

It is an intellectual fallacy to do so. Go argue it in the Religion forums and NOT in News/Activism. You've been told countless times this is a Judeo-Christian values site.

Indeed.

What part of “this is a Conservative site” don’t they understand?

The thing I admire most after his military service is Jim’s sticking to his principles. I love that, and wild horses couldn’t drag me away from Free Republic.
