Skip to comments.Ana Marie Cox: Why Iím Coming Out as a Christian
Posted on 03/01/2015 8:43:38 AM PST by EveningStar
Who do I need to prove my faith toand why should I try? ...
Im nervous to come out as a Christian because I worry Im not good enough of one. Im not scared that non-believers will make me feel an outcast. Im scared that Christians will ...
Here is why I believe I am a Christian: I believe I have a personal relationship with my Lord and Savior. I believe in the grace offered by the Resurrection. I believe that whatever spiritual rewards I may reap come directly from trying to live the example set by Christ. Whether or not I succeed in living up to that example is primarily between Him and me ...

Thanks for posting, it gives me hope for others who are lost.
Use their language against them!
Not sure why she should worry what others say. Non-Christians are often idiots that don’t believe in anything more than the dollar and whatever the New York Times and MSNBC say. But Christianity is about faith. God can question how good you are. But others have no right or ability to judge.
Thanks for the link.
I never heard of her.
What does she say about abortion?
What has this country devolved into?
Once we are identified with Christ, anything that the world has to say about us holds no water. Amen. I will keep her in my prayers for strength and growth and that she keeps her eyes focused on Christ and not on her present surroundings.
Fear not. There WILL be. Some. Ignore them. And remember they are people Jesus died for, too.
I take her at her word and am very happy for her.
This says it all: “So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 10:32
Evidently, she gets it.
She’s a pro-abort, pro-infancticide liberal loon.
Ana Marie Cox: I don’t want to get in the way of Tucker’s dialog with our shared audience at the moment, mostly because I respect Tucker’s personal views on abortion and know that his comments about Tiller are come to honestly — if someone believes that abortion is murder, someone like Tiller would necessarily seem reprehensible. There are no good parallels, but I think there’s weight to the one a lot of young pro-life conservatives I know use: Would you ask an abolitionist to think more charitably about a slaveowner? You can ask a pro-life person to believe in the essential humanity of someone like Tiller, you can expect a pro-life person to honor Tiller’s “right to live,” but you can’t reasonably expect any kind of sympathy.
Nothing, however, justifies a citizen’s cold-blooded murder of someone he disagrees with, no matter what level of moral outrage that disagreement reaches. And Tiller’s murder — at his church, in front of friends and family — is itself such a moral outrage that I think it’s set back the pro-life movement at least several years, if not a decade.
I know I don’t feel a whole lot of sympathy for them right now.
Oh, and on that cheerful note! Have a good week. Be well, be grateful, be safe.
Daily Beast columnist Ana Marie Cox brought the crazy to MSNBC this morning when they were discussing the Values Voter Summit, and commentators had to top each other with how disgusted they are with pictures of unborn children. She definitely won the contest to be the most contemptible degenerate by calling it pornographic.

The GOP’s latest abortion ban push is staggeringly stupid
Ana Marie Cox
It’s a truism verging on dogma that history favors steady progress toward equal rights for gays. The last election cycle saw incredible gains for marriage equality and representation for gays and lesbians in government. There is a movement in the Republican party to at least stop fighting the issue, and at least a recognition that they cannot hope to grow the party as long as young voters associate opposition to marriage equality with a general stance of intolerance and bigotry.
Funny how attitudes haven’t shifted in the same way when it comes to women and, especially, anything to do with sex. Why are debates about reproductive rights mired in Neanderthal attitudes...
Today, we have a whole generation of whom a majority has never themselves had a friend get sick from an abortion performed in unsterile environment, never had to have unsafe sex because they simply didn’t have access to birth control, and had only on TV seen a teenager give up for adoption an unwanted child and there, the situation is sanitized, if not idyllic.
As other feminists have argued, the unspeakable horror that came to light in the trial of Philadelphia abortion “doctor” Kermit Gosnell was not an illustration of the horrors inherent in a post-Roe world, but in a pre-Roe one. And it’s only because abortion is comparatively safe and legal that we confuse the two....
What do Republican women want?

I noticed it was in the ‘Daily Beast”, which is a liberal website. So, maybe that is why she used the term ‘coming out’ as a Christian.
She should ask Obama if he believes this.
I’m told that it is ‘wrong’ to question another Christian’s faith. I have no issue with disputing Fred Phelps and other Democrats’ claims of Christian identity.
Today she is “coming out” as a “Christian.”
A full blown lefty Christian. Undoubtedly she believes in gay marriage and abortion. She is probably one of those “Christians”.
We need some research on this one. Not everyone who says “Lord Lord......”
Thanks. A little research goes a long way to show us the wolves in sheep’s clothing.
The Obama Army is putting the Christians in the closet in the military.
And Democrat delegates to the 2012 convention booed the party leadership when God and Israel were shoved into the party platform against the dominant wishes of those in attendance.
Christianity and progressivism...oil and water.
She just screwed up big time yesterday by tweeting about Scott Walker and the false “campus rape” story. From her twitter “It looks like I screwed up accusing Walker of trying to downplay campus rape reporting. I am deleting those tweets.” At least she showed enough class to delete the tweets.
-—You have to “come out” as a Christian???-—
——What has this country devolved into? ——
My exact thought...
In a strange way...using the semantic language of the left gives her cover...
“Coming out” is a self awareness revelation of your true self...Aka admitting you are a homosexual...
I guess it can apply to being a Christian now...
