Yeah, he used the old "Golden Rule" argument and had the temerity to suggest that if Jesus were alive -- (as if he were dead) -- if Jesus were alive, today, he'd be a Democrat because somehow "doing unto others" is solely a Democrat virtue. I suggested that Jesus would never rob Peter to pay Paul, which is what the progressive tax does. I told him that Jesus would advocate voluntary Charity rather than forced Charity. I also pointed out that the welfare system makes the Government "God" in they eyes of those who receive Manna from the Government and they no longer rely upon the good graces of the Church.
It was a maddening conversation, but at the end, I knew that Obama was going to be the next president, because Obama is going to the the Messiah from Washington. People have decided to put their trust in Government and abandon their trust in God.
Its a sad day.
I'm probably going to retire to the Religion Forum after tonight. Let's say we start up the Calvin/Arminian wars again. At least if we are busy arguing scripture, we will also be busy studying it. I'm sick to death of politics. God's plan was set in motion before the foundation of the Earth. Sometimes its better to just watch from the sidelines than to struggle to change it.
I just heard Carl Cameron on Fox say that many in McCain’s camp “whispered” that McCain felt Obama, as a historic candidate, “should” win.
Is that the same as hinting that McCain THREW this election?
“I’m probably going to retire to the Religion Forum after tonight.”
I think I will reintroduce myself to K.

All of that being said, perhaps you should run for Congress in ‘10?
Satan (the delusions of the religion of man) won this battle; take heart for yourself, your loved ones (including most here that I’ve gotten to know), and your knowledge of His Truth — we know with sureness He has always planned on winning the “Big One.”
Stay true, and remember that this life’s time is only a blink of an eye compared with the time he has in store for you. Nevertheless, you will want to proudly tell Your Father what you accomplished with this short time, how apparent it is that His wishes motivated you.
Let God continue to bless this fantastic and God-fearing community. Amen.
