Democrats are fond of a few positions concerning religion. They like to claim there is no way for politics and religion to mix unless it mixes in a church full of
Democrat supporters. Another favorite line is that anyone who points to Democrat attacks on religion is either unqualified to do so or a wild eyed Evangelical bible thumper.
As a life long Christian I am qualified to point to the Democrats and challenge their Christianity. Democrats, get over yourself about this.
Democrats use their surrogates in the ACLU to attack religions (except Islam which they are too frightened of to go after) in general and Christianity in particular.
It was Democrats that passed Obamacare and it is Democrats that are using it to bludgeon Christians into changing our principles to suit Democrat principles. No other political Party has ever warred on religious freedom as Democrats are doing today.
Democrats include those who worship Mother Earth and prefer GOV over GOD every time. Christians do not.
Find a true believer Democrat and youll find a person not concerned about Honoring Thy Father and Thy Mother.
Democrats are intent on tearing down everything preceding generations have done and stand for.
Thats because they constantly appeal to ignorant children who think history started the day they turned ten.
What is Christian about organized disrespect for tradition and the ways of life that have made America great? Democrat love of death killing innocent babies- is an essential secular sacrament for theses people.
Belief in abortion from the morning after pill to Barack Obamas idea to let miracle abortion survivors die on stainless steal tables is required to be a good Democrat.
The thought of such thing revolts Christians. Lying about EVERYTHING part of
being a good Democrat.

No because they support evil. They same goes for voting for a RINO.
Many Democrats are well meaning souls who confuse the government as a proper means of Christian charity. They ignorantly mistake the ends justifying the means—trading a coercive State for government welfare programs. Many of the Democrat leaders are of questionable moral integrity. They prey on the well meaning souls to advance their blood lust for power—ironically screaming about the separation of Church and State while professing the religion of “fairness.”
Have you seen Obama with the rainbow halo as the "Gay President". He represents where the Democrats are these days. Running as fast as they can to Sodom and Gomorrah.
It’s a shame that many go on voting “like daddy did” or like their pastor tells them to.
It used to be, but not anymore. That party is utterly Satanic.
The Democrat Party stands for evil, enslavement,and that rights come from the government.
They are the very enemies of freedom.
We are past the point of sugarcoating the issue.
Every Democrat should be challenged as to why they are still in the godless, baby-killing, expansion of the welfare state and death panel party.
The Progressives have corrupted our language and labels so badly that they no longer have any meaning. People are more complex than simple labels anyway.
The question is another one of those, "keep the masses talking about nothing while something else is happening"
The fact is that the democrats have ran a relentless agenda to drive all traditional and religious values behind closed doors (utilizing the ACLU) with claims to not judge and to keep your religious views behind closed doors while at the same time trying to replace these values with the values of the homosexual community or the sexual revolution of the sixties counter culture.
‘Shock value’ is promoted by the leftist media and our children are continually more and more targeted by perversions and all sorts of moral corruptions that democrats promote as being ‘tolerant’ or ‘humerous’, etc
The democrat party is a pervert party. They are not Christian but are pagan and satanic.
The Democrat Party Platform strongly supportsshalom b'SHEM Yah'shua HaMashiach
a woman's right to murder her child.
Can any follower of the Christ support that ?
Can’t be a Christian and a democRAT at the same time .
Don’t consider the to be patriots either
No... not in today’s dim party... no way... impossible.
Yes but you must be extremely stupid so as not to notice the contradictions
No, and I don’t know many who want to be Christians.
Can a wolf be a sheep?
Rats are under the influence of several anti-Christian worldviews:Marxism, secular humanism, postmodernism, and naturalism. They secretly have contempt for any Christian that agrees with them.
No, because you cannot serve two masters.
Treat you neighbor as you would treat yourself?
If treat equals “tax”, “regulate”, or “judge” then the quick answer to your question is NO.
A few weeks ago, after someone in our congregation submitted a question asking if homosexuals go to heaven after death
Christian’s sin and it is not our place to question one’s salvation. Also, all sin is equal in God’s eyes, so the “little” sin is equal to the “big” sin; the thing that makes the difference is conviction and repentance.
Long story short, yes a Christian can be a Democrat, or at least vote for one (or a RINO, or Romney,or whomever); making a mistake. Now do I think the life long fruits of Liberals and Democrats bear witness to a God honoring lifestyle; not by a long shot.
Full disclosure; I am a Christian; going on 5 years, and I sin daily; sometimes knowingly. My lifestyle is not always God honoring. I am a hypocrite in God’s eyes; and for this I am convicted daily. I couldn’t wake up,get out of bed, and go through my daily life without His grace, and for that I am grateful.
Your attitude is correct but Christians who stay Democrats with the current state of the party are in a state of outright rebellion and abuse God’s grace. If they have a sensitive consience they would leave that party.
FYI I have been a Christian for 33 years.
Not since they substitute government for charity and abandon all pro-life, pro-family policies.
Obama could not have won in 2008 without the evangelical vote and the Catholic vote.
I remember the day my Grandfather, a lifelong loyal Democrat and quite active in the local party, came to this conclusion.
I walked into his kitchen and saw him sitting there, pale as a ghost, with a number of empty beer bottles strewn across the table. I asked what was wrong and he told me that he had come to the conclusion that this Carter guy had screwed-up the country so badly with the foreign policy weakness, the welfare, the abortions and general moral decline...that he had no choice but to vote for this Reagan fellow.
Any like-minded Democrat with a conscience came to this same conclusion years ago, and is now either an Independent or a Republican.
Page 50 of this mendacity...
The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a womans right to choose a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay, and we oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.The Democratic Party also strongly supports access to comprehensive affordable family planning services and age-appropriate sex education which empower people to make informed choices and live healthy lives. We also recognize that such health care and education help reduce the number of unintended pregnancies and thereby also reduce the need for abortions.The Democratic Party also strongly supports a womans decision to have a child by ensuring access to and availability of programs for pre- and post-natal health care, parenting skills, income support, and caring adoption programs.
Just one of many reasons why the answer is NO.
No. End of story.
“Can a person be a true Democrat and a true Christian? “
The question is nonsense!
There is only two types of people in the world today, the saved and the lost.
Jesus Christ is not a religion, nor is he a political figure, there are no democrats or republicans in Africa, or in Japan, or Israel.
He is The Great God and our Saviour: Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
He is the only Potentate: 1 Timothy 6:15 Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;
Jesus Christ could care less about political affiliation, he saves sinners, one must severely corrupt scripture to imply otherwise.
Believe the gospel: 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
I believe that a person can be a Christian and a Democrat. Just because a person is a Democrat doesn't mean that her or she agrees with every platform item.
No. Not just no, but hell no.
True Christians do not support Democrats or Democrat policies. This applies to all true Christians, Protestant or Roman Catholic. I suggest that those who support Democrats do not have any comprehension of what the Bible, the Word of God, teaches.
No. Although Romney’s GOP is doing its best to help make neither party an option for Christian voters.
Agreed. There’s sadly a massive ignorance of the Bible and church history and teaching among many today.
The key is the word “true”.
