I see you as having the goal that all conservatives should dance to the tune of YOUR Christianity.

What about these conservatives: good, kind ethical Jews, Hindus, Buddahists, Athiests? Even good kind Muslims? There is no room for them and their beliefs in YOUR third party.

This country is grounded in Judeo-Christian foundations. Thank God. But integrated in that foundation is something called tolerance. This government was not instituted by the founders to be Christian or Biblical. That is a personal realm, not a governmental realm. When governments are ruled by religion...people die. (even Christian Governments, and don’t refer me back to a bunch of Popes, think Calvinists in Switzerland, Puritans in New England and so forth).

You need to be thankful that we do live in a country where Christians CAN worship and live their lives by their Christian tenets.

If you can’t make the leap emotionally or intellectually to do everything in your power to prevent Hillary’s socialism (which will REALLY be the first big step toward the destruction of our religious rights) then I can add nothing further to this discussion.

Really, the point is that the Christians are made out to look like we are the ones pushing for change, when in fact we are the core of the GOP. It has been that way since President Reagan, and the advent of the Moral Majority.

You are cool to vote however you want to vote, and I also feel no obligation to vote for Rudy. The best thing you can do is get Rudy nominated and you can say goodbye to us forever.

I am not hateful for that, am I?

True, but by the same token, it is the Judeo-Christian ethic that gives us our sense of virtue, our sense of good and evil. Our system only works if there is a unified sense of the moral ethic. That is why multiculturalism is ripping us apart.

To vilify Christians who are the keepers of our sense of social justice for upholding the tenants of their faith is tantamount to rejection of the very root of our definition of "American". You may try to replace the moral sense, but if you do you are no different than the Socialists, because that is precisely what they have been doing all along. It is the disintegration of that moral sense that gives credence to their bastardized form of social justice which is the sole source of their power.

When governments are ruled by atheism, people die.

When governments are ruled by secular humanists, people die.

The point is, people kill each other, particularly if they are trying to maintain power.
