I’m trying to figure out how anyone who claims to be ABO (Anybody But Obama) in order to favor a liberal like Romney could possibly have any trouble being ABM (Anybody But McCaskill) in order to favor a conservative like Akins.

The conservative Akins is far more deserving of support than the liberal Romney.

I hope you enjoy four more years of Obama. Shouldn’t matter, since Obama is “a difference that is not a difference”. And thanks to you and your ilk for your role in the Obaminization of America.

I heard Sarah Palin on FOX this morning saying that there may be a third party backing the other Republican who lost the nomination to him and that he should definitely quit the Missouri Senate race.

I will only vote for
congressional candidates this year. I have serious intestinal problems pulling the lever for either presidential candidate. I don’t think Romney would nominate any different Supreme Court Judge than would Obama.

The whole concept of legitimate rape as it stands in his mind creates the specter of reasonable doubt. He can’t double back and say punish the rapist if it’s not really rape.

Because Romney can run on the real issues of the campaign, while Akin will be forced to provide regurgitations on 'legitimate rape' for the next 70+ days instead of the real issues. DUH!

You have got to be a n00b troll. No conservative is this stupid!

Yes, a lot of women claim “rape” when in fact their sexual activity was consensual. Those women — and not Akin — are to blame for “the specter of reasonable doubt.”

Don’t kill the messenger. Attack instead the instigators.

So, are you pro-McCaskill or pro-Akin?

You’ve got to choose one or the other. There are no other candidates in the race.

Actually, homosexualism was a term coined a number of years back by a regular on the religion forum.

No. 'Homosexualism' is a proper word.

'Homosexualist' is listed by Wiktionary as an alternative to the term 'homosexual', referencing the Oxford English Dictionary, and giving usage examples as early as '49... albeit that the term smells a bit arcane. It's use is legitimate in any case, as an 'ist' is generally a practitioner of an 'ism'... True enough that 'ist' is used as a bolt-on component even where the word proper does not exist, conveying the thought of a single practitioner of a thing.

And it is in popular use, as can be seen by plugging the word into a search engine. No doubt it's popular use predates FR.

Both are words, both are found in abundance upon the web.

caver's comment holds no merit, even if withholding it's vituperation.

No, your reply was the stupid one. The main issue Romney has chosen to run on is the issue of not releasing his tax returns. He’s putting his selfish desires over the needs of the party by letting the Democrats and the media spend all their time talking about that non-issue to everyone but Romney. Hence he’s remained permanently mired 4 points behind Obama in national polls.

Nice. This is true ONLY BECAUSE Clod Akin placed himself above Country yesterday. I'm anti-McCaskill and trying to figure out the best way to defeat her.

I'll concede third party is a losing option, but I'm still gonna vent (like Mark Levin goes nuclear) about Clod some more on this conservative website.

I guess we disagree. If I lived in Missouri, I'd vote for Akin without any reservations whatsoever. I know what he meant. I know that he is opposed to abortion without exception. He should not have placed the word "legitimate" so close to the word "rape." I know that and he knows that. His clumsy moment should not define his life. In the end, it will not define his campaign.

Hopefully, as you mature, you're going to learn that calling other people "stupid" is not going to win you much admiration or respect.

Thanks for the info, roamer.

My sense is that “homosexualism” now substitutes as a synonyn for “gay agenda.” Homosexualism, as with communism, is advocacy of a particular philosphy.

The charges were dropped, not just because there was no evidence, LC, but because there was exculpatory evidence. The DNA evidence clearly belonged to none of the Duke LaCrosse players.

I would agree with your impression. And if we are mistaken in the use of the term, it is understandable, as in philosophy (religion and politics included) the 'ism' holds the aggregate of similar factions (Conservatism, Dispensationalism, etc) which becomes something approaching identity, with mores, standards, and motives included - So lumping all things 'homosexual' under the banner of 'homosexualism' would be a fairly natural thing to do.

It’s idiots like Akin who drive legitimate victims into the arms of Planned Parenthood and other murderers who will understand an empathize.

The reality is that right now babies are saved by sidewalk counselors one at a time, and brave women who have been raped choose to bring babies to term and should be applauded and not have their integrity questioned.

Here’s one example...

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2191804/Shauna-Prewitt-Attorney-rape-victim-pens-open-letter-Todd-Akin.html

I can find more. Akin doesn’t have charity or truth on his side here.

Rape doesn’t not prevent pregnancy and the message should be that rape should not prevent a mother’s instincts to protect her child.

I’m voting for a conservative for president. I decided a few months ago that I cannot support any of Tom’s liberal competitors.

If I lived in Missouri, I would vote for a conservative for Senate. If there is a better conservative than Akin, I would consider voting for someone else. But, if Akin is the best conservative in the race, I’d stick with him. He’s a fighter.

I would like to see Obama defeated because I would enjoy seeing how that raging narcissist would behave. Unfortunately, though, Obama is not THE problem. He is a manifestation of the problem, and the problem is the deterioration of our culture that has gone on for many decades and that is evidently on FR.

We have perhaps a total of $200 trillion dollars in unfunded liabilities through SS, Medicare, government pensions, etc. Apart from defense, there is very little that the government lawfully spends money on. Not one “conservative” politician has had the courage to tell people the truth about the catastrophe that is coming, and there is probably not even a majority on FR for eliminated unlawful spending.

So, I agree. Obama needs to be defeated, but defeating Obama won’t solve the problem.

All ‘religions’ that call their operatives “priest” are clearly luciferian in their makeup.

Christ is our only priest; no one else can offer a saving sacrifice. It is notable that Judaism no longer uses that term that was once quite legitimate for them.

To call someone a ‘luciferian’ implies that they intentionally follow lucifer. Romney and others might not be properly following a Christian path but it's quite another story to say they follow satan. You (or a leader in your church) might think it sounds profound to broadly throw such a toxic term around, but if your goal, and I'm sure it is if you are a true Christian, is to be a solid witness to Christ and bring people to him rather than chase them away, I'd suggest a more tactful approach (as well as factual).

Here’s the tragedy...

There is at least one woman, maybe more, but at least one woman in America who will visit an abortion clinic this weekend and not make eye contact with a sidewalk counselor, and not have the dialogue that she needs to have to choose life...

In part, because terrified of being called a liar if she says she was raped.

Rep. Akin’s ignorance of biology and more importantly psychology is going to lead to more abortions THIS WEEKEND.

Anyone care to defend the results and the reality of his gaffe?

Sure. You have a high opinion of the information transfer that's taking place in America.

I've watched too many "man on the street" interviews in which the respondents don't know their vice-president, senators, representatives, and other simple basic facts of politics and current events.

I'm betting the bulk of Americans don't even know Akin, what he said, or anything about this.

You’re talking about things that you do not understand.

They’re not just misinformed, they sincerely believe that Lucifer is the benevolent one, and that he will be victorious.

No one that has even a minimal understanding of the word of God would allow themselves to be called a priest, nor seek the counsel of one who does.

You present a false dilemma.

The tragedy here is that people like you are able to spread this viperous dialogue as any kind of reality.

Akin is apparently such a solid pro life candidate that the pro-abort crowd feels that they have to destroy him at any cost. His remark was clumsy, but totally innocuous.

It’s a very real issue... Akin’s ignorant comments will not help sidewalk counselors save babies this weekend.

It is absolutely right to be against abortion in cases of rape... it damages the pro-life cause when you predicate that stand on easily refutable scientific theory.

Abortion is the case of rape is wrong because it denies the humanity of the child inside the mother. Period.

Attaching some fantasy to the premise... damages the premise... and does not help save babies.

Or is it more important to be right, than to save babies?

Akin, and his apologists, need to answer that question.

Personally I see this as much to do about the RNC and their RINO enablers to discredit yet another Tea Party associated social conservative. They know no lows in their war on the social right in their efforts to cling to power. In many ways they are no better than the liberal left of the Democrat Party.

Get a copy of Morals and Dogma, by Albert Pike. This is a book published by Freemasonry.

It illustrates the philosophy of the luciferians quite well.

Of course, the best read is God’s word, but I suspect that you prefer other sources.

They truly believe that they can become gods themselves. This is the basis of the common misuse of the word ‘Saint’ by the nicolaitan churches. The ones that they appoint as “saints” are the ones that they consider worthy of godhood. They reject the Biblical use of the word.

Because men are ignorant of the origins of their religion doesn't automatically define them as worshipers of satan. Christians who are truly trying to glorify God should attempt to inform and educate without toxic insults about devil worship. That's a very brief synopsis directly from the bible. Your letting your personal, insulting nature to dictate your comments rather than your Christian heart. But who am I to be citing the bible? I don't even read it, right?
