Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom...the permanent political edge over secular America.
The writer of this piece is un-American. How dare she criticize those of us who are religious for using our private resources to engage in our God-given rights.
What do they think ACORN is? It's the Church of Divine Caesar, "Give Me the Handout" branch.
In short, “They do stuff we just don’t do.” Well, if it’s that important to you, figure out a secular justification for doing it, and then do it. Otherwise, don’t whine.
It didn’t end for me. I’ve decided to try and make it a lifestyle. I may not always be successful but I will always try.
No secular organization is capable of mounting anything like an organized, church-funded campaign to recruit new voters.
They certainly have a right to speak freely, and they certainly have a right to do so. Whining is certainly power, because politicians listen. A person who wishes to whine about not having power often appears to be well capable of being organized, if they tried. Any secular organizations out there? I certainly recall an organization out there that protested an old “Ten Commandments” display.
Give me a break. The secular left only has at its disposal the media, all unions, thousands of NGOs, the public school system, government employee unions, the entire university system, untold government programs, lobbying groups and lots of outside money, (ie. Soros) and the entire Democrat party.
Controlling until just recently, all television, all radio, all daily newspapers, all magazines, all waiting room magazines, all movies, all publishing, all schools and curriculum, all colleges, and everything else in the culture that wasn't inside the four walls of the churches on Sunday, seems like a pretty equal asset.
Geez, the WAPO seems surprised that Christians don’t really feel the need to be transformed by the mesiah of Chicago. You know that WAPO, always on the cutting edge of MACACA. Maybe if the left had any touchstone other than envy they could represent themselves as consistent over time. The truth is they are children, with childish desires.
Sorry, Susan....we are commanded to pray - even for those in authority (NT) We are also advised to select from among ourselves righteous individuals. (OT)
Certainly we will continue to obey the Lord, regardless of your opinion....or even and edict from civil government to do so.
The “god gap” as the Left called it in 2004 has proven to be a tough sell. They packaged Obama as a lifelong Christian so that he would sell well to black social conservatives who oppose homosexuality and abortion.
Rather than openly sell their agenda and beliefs, they hide behind a mirror and say “me too!” to different audiences, laughing about how the shuck and jive can pull the wool over the eyes of those in flyover country who still “cling to guns and religion”.
The followers of militant Islam cling to guns and religion and our pro-Islamist president says that it is “wrong” to antagonize them by burning a koran (but it’s okay to write more taxpayer checks for P*ss Ch*st photos).
Has she never looked at the "non-partisan" Rock The Vote agenda items and "voter research materials?
No, they have the "politically correct" positions on all of the issues.
Ignores the Democrat politicians who visit these same black congregations on the Sunday before election day to speak from the pulpit in violation of election law and IRS law...
By the way, I vote "democratically" for Republicans. This "Democratic" Party nomenclature is bunk. DINO socialists (Democrat in name only). Thomas Jefferson wouldn't recognize "The Party".
Secular Humanism is a faith. It pushes the mantra that there is no god, that every man is himself his own god.
And it is insitutionalized in academia and the media and is NOT restricted by laws prohibiting an establishment of "State religion" even though it IS a theocratic view.
Socialists lie. Always.
"Intellectuals" is the term she uses for "atheists"? Sounds like an atheist supremacist worldview. If you don't see the world the way she does, you are somehow "inferior" and not a creature of intellect.
The god-hating atheists need to put away their "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED" banned (whenever they declare "God is Dead") and learn to "CoExiSt" as they put it (put it on their cars, at least).
Anything found in nature--and homosexuality, like left-handedness, is a common variation--is natural. To say that nature "intended" or "designed" something, and that any minority variation is therefore "unintended," is to betray as much ignorance about evolution as any firebreathing fundaamentalist preacher or senatorial candidate who rejects evolution because she never saw a monkey turning into a man. I never saw a monkey turning into a homosexual man either, but since homosexuality is found in both species, I must conclude that some gay monkey did evolve.
She is deliberately "dumbing down" her response to "proudly" proclaim that nature makes no mistakes. That there are no birth defects. That no baby that is not brought to term (miscarriage) is accidental, that was all "nature's plan".
Monkeys fling poo, masturbate in public in zoos, and engage in other uncivilized behaviors. She should actually go look at a monkey sometime before turning her typewriter over to a roomful of them.
Atheism — the highest form of human arrogance.
I was under the impression that Catholicism was actually larger than the SBC in the U.S.
