Faith out front: Democratic candidates try to reach religious voters
By Mike Wereschagin TRIBUNE-REVIEW Sunday, April 13, 2008
The God gap is closing.
Both Democratic presidential candidates are expected to speak about their faith today at the Compassion Forum, a 90-minute event at Messiah College near Harrisburg that will be broadcast to more than 1,000 congregations next Sunday, two days before the Pennsylvania primary.
In a stark break from the last two presidential races, the presumptive Republican nominee does not plan to attend.

I’m sure Barry Lynn will be outraged by this. Oh no wait it’s democrats....its OK.
Are they trying to reach those poor and bitter 2nd Amendment supporting relious voters? Or are they just after the globull warming religous types?
Time to break out the Bibles to fool those typical religious people...
Yeah, the pro aborts and pro gay agenda party will appeal to religious voters.
Christians still remember Billy Jeff Clinton carrying that big ol’ floppy-covered Bible like a Baptist preacher to church. We found out later, he’d go back to the WH to diddle Monica afterwards.
The msm must think Christians are gullible enough to believe anything that Obama and Hillary will say in this bogus “compassion forum.” Obviously, these craven politicians and the msm are ignorant of the Bible’s instructions about compassion.
Jesus says: “Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in Heaven. So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” (Matthew 6:1-4)
I suppose it’s commendable of them to reach out and communicate. But people of faith would have a very hard time voting for candidates who support partial birth abortion, taxing people for being married, revolving door prison sentences for violent career criminals, gay marriage, pornographic sex education, government subsidies for irresponsible and dangerous behavior, and supporessing free speech for having religious content.
Faith matters to Democrats only on Election Days.
so here is what we have today:
The GOP/RNC is kicking out the Christians beause they are too conservative
The DNC is LYING but still begging for the Christians to find a home with the hedonists.
The RNC is saying good riddance.
The DNC is saying you must compromise.
not a who lot of hope there.
The Rats don’t stand a chance with us typical white gun worshipers.
...of which religion?
Oh wait, I think that’s self-explanatory...
What utter malarky! For nearly 70 years, liberals, Democrats, their allies in the media, university campuses, have tried to dismiss religion as too plebian, too anti-intellectual. Now they need those votes. What hypocrites!
