A fake Christian is still better than a post-Christian, like Molok Obama.

Why would anybody particularly care about what Charles Barkley has to say about politics?

Moron lost 400K betting on the NFL this season.

Not the brightest guy around.

Not good. Sounds like Conservative is starting to take on a negative reaction the way the word liberal has. Barkley is outspoken but hardly a liberal. Some of the over-the-top bs that hypocrites in the conservative movement are doing is giving the Dems a chance to redefine conservatives as those who are unaccepting of others while tolerating the Larry Craigs and other pervs who want to be associated with conservativism.

Hey, he can dribble a ball and that’s something!

To some voters that’s all it takes. If he were “articulate” he could maybe run for President!

Charles did you read where Yah'shua said :

NAsbU John 7:24 "Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment."

Saw the interview.

Barkley said he’s pro-choice (well duh) and pro-gay marriage.

Hollyweirds and sports self-anointed demigods want both so their own debaucherous life styles will be validated.

I’m sure Barkley isn’t gay, but he would probably love to have 3 or 4 sixteen-year-old wives, and that would be the next thing once marriage is dumbed down.

Every time I hear the word Conservative it makes me sick to my stomach cause they're really just fake Christians as I call them. That's all they are. But I just, I'm going to vote democratic no matter what.

Great. So why do we care? He will vote for anyone with a D after their name.

Does that mean that Charles is a “real Christian”? Let me see now how could I compare a Conservative Christian to a Liberal Christian: the Conservative Christian doesn't believe in murdering unborn children. I’ll stop there as that is enough.

He said he was a Republican because he was RICH! during the 80’s.

He’s good for laughs but when a subject matter of importance and intelligence comes along, his IQ goes down faster than his dunks.

The pro-”choice” pronouncement shows that he is ignorant and chooses to remain ignorant. Many who lack intelligence and basic human morality try to seem intelligent and “sophisticated” by taking this kind of position. What more can be expected from a semi-literate basketball player.

“Barkley is outspoken but hardly a liberal”

Ummm I love Charles myself, but here’s a man that was educated at one of our illustrious college campii and went straight into...

being coddled by the NBA for ga-jillions of dollars wholly unaffected by life as most of us live it.

His ideas of liberalism, socialism, conservatism and fake Christiaintiy has most likely been learned by what he’s heard from liberal professors (WHEN he attended class or was remotely conscious) at uppe crust cocktail parties or while playing play station with a bud.

NO idea what he’s been doing since retirement but I can’t IMAGINE it’s been much more productive as far as educating himself about conservatism!

Boy, I did not expect to see this, this early.

I was wondering if the crack up of the GOP would lead to the RINO’s and the liberals to join forces in piling on Christians. It is going to be our fault if the vaulted McCain doesn’t win because we are such clueless Neanderthals.

It’s coming.

Barkley thinks he is Christ, so he gets confused about the labels sometimes.

Exactly. And Roger Clemens is fighting for his reputation right now as other right-leaning athletes and entertainers seem to have to do if they dare to espouse their political beliefs, but that big lug Barkley, he’s hailed as a political analyst.

Just make sure to duck if a bell rings while you’re around him...How does a basketball player end up like an over the hill boxer, who took more than a few unintended dives at the end of his career? Some bookie musta taken a baseball bat to his head when he couldn’t come up with his money.

He doesn’t know what he is talking about. Besides, isn’t he judging? It is impossible not to judge unless you have no opinions about anything at all. Final judgment belongs with God, but the truths God has revealed in Scripture are God’s judgments. If Barkley is pro abortion and homosexual marriage, he is disagreeing with God.

Apparently. I would just like to see him participate in one basketball game with this sort of thinking governing it. Just one. No one judge. No rules. No winners or losers. No good or bad players. No good or bad plays. No fouls. Everyone gets the same pay. Etc. No discernment between anything. Judge nothing, just play. Nothing in life is that way.

but he would probably love to have 3 or 4 sixteen-year-old wives Met him in a bar in LaJolla once. A guy with us was from Philly and quickly introduced himself. After the evening Barkley came over and bantered with us 4-5 minutes before leaving, with 3 absolute babes.

Sounds like Conservative is starting to take on a negative reaction

*Starting* to? Are you kidding? The damage is long done. When Americans hear the word conservative, all they picture anymore are reactionary Christians who spend their lives fretting about other people's bodily functions. Porn, gays, sex, in vitro fertilization, drugs, vaccines, birth control--the government's primary function is to make sure people aren't exposed to any of this icky stuff. Oh, and throw in some anti-science for good measure. That's Conservatism, the new C-word. And people wonder why McCain's kicking ass in the Republican Party? Aiyaiyai.
