How you can call yourself a Christian and then proclaim you would be willing to vote for Rudy is beyond me.
Any candidate that believes it is a woman’s right to choose to murder her unborn child, as Rudy does, is not fit to be a leader or a softball team, much less the leader of the US.
As a Christian, your moral principles are supposed to be your first priority even to the death. Otherwise, you are definitely not living a Christ-like life.
You might want to rethink either your proclamation of being a Christian, or your political position.
Where in the Constitution is it mentioned that to be President you must be a Christian?
Or do you always do your shopping in Christian stores??
What kind of car do you drive, and who is the manufacturer of your TV, radios, cell phones, etc., etc.???
Your reply wasn’t to my post but I read it so I’m replying.
I’m a Christian. Heck, I’m a practicing Catholic, I follow the catholic doctrine and not some willy nilly thing that changes each year.
My moral principles are important but I understand the rest of the country doesn’t follow my moral principles thus I will support any candidate who most closely follows my principles on this country continuing its existence. And I will continue to follow the moral principles as taught in the Bible and in my Faith as a Catholic (catholic doctrine editors of the Bible shared by all prostestant religions) and teach my children such principles. I can’t change the world but I can parent my kids.
So say it’s Rudy and Hillary or Obama or Edwards or anyone on that side but those are the 3 who will be. So, it’s unchristianlike to vote for Rudy but it’s okay to allow Hillary/Obama/Edwards to win? I completely disagree.
I also disagree that voting for Rudy would question my Christianity/Catholicism. Same as Romney, who I’ve read is sorta for gay marriage and all, and McCAin - too long to list, and Thompson, there’s his issues. So if we Christians vote for any of these candidates or the nominee, we’re not Christians?
I would be so happy if any candidate came out against abortion, in all situations. We see where that got Bob Casey of PA (former dem Gov.). Same for Santorum, former senator of PA.
I’ll vote for Rudy if he gets the repub nom BECAUSE he’s better than any dem running. And at least we have a shot with him. I won’t vote for him in the primary because of my Faith. I also won’t vote 3rd party yet, losing battle right now, nor will I vote for any dem nom, ever.
The only shot we have of limiting and eventually doing away with abortions is to elect presidents and congressmen who don’t support murdering babies on demand. And electing presidents who will appoint SC Justices who are conservative. We will never get a shot with any of the current dems but we do have a shot with a repub president even one who isn’t a social conservative imo. So we have Romney, McCain, Rudy, Thompson, none really social conservatives imo. I like Hunter and more and more Tancredo. But I will vote for the repub nom even if it’s Rudy or Romney or McCain, et al. It doesn’t make me less of a Christian or a Catholic, it makes me politcially smart, imo. I’m all for a grass roots movement and I will support it but I don’t see it helping in this election. I’m not willing to sacrifice our military and this mission for ideals. I want a POTUS who will support the military at all costs and none of the dems will do that.
That's right for the campaign and the primary; but if the final nominees are Rudy and Hillary, you would be a self-righteous fool to try to stand on principle when the entire election belongs to "Caesar" anyway. We got Bill Clinton because of Ross Perot. Do you really want to bring an end to the United States Constitution if you can't have perfection in a candidate? Only God is perfect.
