You just did. Sorry, but you left it hanging out there.
He's Chuck Baldwin -- A pontificating nut.
Guilty - but would someone do me a favor? What, or who, is the "Religious Right?" Who are the leaders? What is so "evil" about what they stand for? Why is it that "conservative" Chuck Baldwin thinks he needs to construct a "straw man" to oppose what he appears to be opposed to? His characterization of our regard for President Bush is phony and incorrect.
Maybe like Al Gore, he kept flunking out of theology school.
Carter was just plain stupid.
I know. I lived through his term.
Carter made more of us young democrat voting Americans come to be Reagan conservatives than anyone who was or is presently a Republican.
This is how "good" Republicans self-destruct, from the inside. They break step and whine.
Too stupid to handle success are we?
First Christie Todd Whitman's stupid book and now this guy's dumb proclamation of fear.
Two great examples of our fear of succeeding.
The fundamental link between conservatives is the shared Judeo-Christian morality that underpins their politics...I am not sure you truly can be a conservative atheist. That is not to say that you cannot be on the right side of politics, but just that you cannot be truly a conservative.
I even scare myself sometimes! /sarcasm
So what's your point in posting this? Another Bush hater wrote a column about hating Bush. I'd be interested to know what your thoughts are on the religious right. Does it scare you?
This person sets up straw menand posits a situation that patently does not exist thus throwing into doubt for me all he said in the first part of the piece.
They do? Well, as we all know, Christians are a simple sort of folk.
More than that, the Religious Right appears to believe that G.W. Bush is the anointed vicar of Christ.
They do? More evidence of their touching simplicity.
As such, in the minds of the Religious Right, Bush's war in Iraq is a holy crusade.
Well, as long as it is only in their minds, which are rather simple, not to worry.
The willingness of the Religious Right to give President Bush king-like subservience is easily seen in the way they demonize anyone who dares to oppose him. This is very unnerving.
One might even say it is sKerry.
If you recall, Carter even taught Sunday School in a Southern Baptist Church while President.
And he was willing to kill thousands of unborn children at the same time.
America is fast taking on the shape of the old Holy Roman Empire and President Bush is quickly morphing into a modern day Caesar.
This is worthless babble. Caesar? LOL! You moron, Bush won't be re-elected. Sheesh, what a dope.
Are we witnessing the type of marriage between Church and State that America's founders originally feared?
How can you even charge this given the fact that we can't even say MERRY CHRISTMAS in our public schools, or even quote the Declaration of Independence?
So what is this guy's suggestion? Vote for him and his Constitutional Party candidate? If so, then we're guaranteed to have activist, pro-abortion judges, eroded gun rights, higher taxes on married couples. You'll be more likely to see (IMHO) elimination of the tax exemption of churches, the fencing in of anything Christian except when in the home or church, the proliferation of sexual perversion (since there will be no limits on anything coming from Hollywood).
This guy is a NUT.
Carter has embraced every communist thug and dictator on the planet. Being a Sunday school teacher doesn't change that he is a world class schmuck.
The fact that this guy's last name is "Baldwin" I find very suspicious to say the least. Could this guy be Alec on Crack?
>>I'm a Christian conservative, and I have some problems with the movement, but this guy is nuts.<<
You ripped the words right out of my mouth.
I have found that I have some problems with ALL movements for one simple reason: The all include flawed human beings...
But this guy goes way over the top.
bump 'til later
