Skip to comments.Kerry: 'I Don't Want to Claim That God Is on Our Side'
Posted on 07/30/2004 4:03:52 PM PDT by counterpunch
Sen. John Kerry revealed a lot about himself in his speech last night at the Democrat convention, such as when he paraphrased fellow Democrat Ron Prescott Reagan: "I don't wear my own faith on my sleeve."
He failed to mention that those Catholic bishops who actually practice the Catholic faith ban him from receiving Holy Communion in their dioceses. But today he's probably regretting how much he exposed about himself when he said, "I don't want to claim that God is on our side."
Ahh, very good, and true too.
Uh, Mr. Kerry, you mean the God who said this about your rabid pro-abortion advocacy?
(Proverbs 6: 16) There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are an abomination to him: . . .hands that shed innocent blood,"
or this about your sanctimonious defense of abortion?
(Isaiah 5:20) Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness"
Maybe it's the God who said this:
(Mark 7:6-7) And He said to them, "Rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: ' THIS PEOPLE HONORS ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM ME. BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.'
Well thats good because God is not on the side of men who endorse the killing of babies who are dangling out of the birth canal. I have that on good authority by the way, the Bible.
John Kerry, you're no Abraham Lincoln!
Lincoln meant something else, in that we should not be proud and arrogant to think that all our free will is on the side of God since we are only human, The democrats however I believe really don't want to be on the side of God at all, take Howard Deans comments a few days ago, saying that people will eventually turn from voting for God, and also consider Alec Baldwin's remark at an official DNC event that fundamentalist Christians are wackos to which DNC chair Terry McAuliffe would not refute or condemn these statements.
Our Lord isn't impartial in the struggle of good vs evil. America is confronting evil. So, yes, I WOULD say God is on America's side in this struggle. Even of more importance, we are on HIS by accepting this calling.
That the Senator is unable to grasp the concept of evil and why it isn't unbelievably arrogant to make the claim we have the Lord's support is why he is unfit to wage this war.
His hand has been on our men and women throughout the battle in Afganistan, Iraq and across the world. In the span of a year we have accomplished in Iraq what took a decade to accomplish during WWII. Think this is accidental?
There has been no great Arab uprising in the streets. We haven't had a hundred thousand men and women die. WMD's didn't carve a hole into our cities or the Arab world. Saddam and his sons were removed. The Iraqi people are working together to unite their country even though many did not believe it possible. Freedom is coming to exist in the middle east for men and women alike.
These are providential blessings. Senator Kerry cannot see this because morality is relative to him. We have been blessed precisely because we are doing his will.
Furthermore, he was out of line in his statements ridiculing G.W. for wearing his "faith on his sleeve". I doubt God was amused this man felt it his right to denigrate how G.W. should honor his Savior. I certainly wasn't amused.
Why is that, John? Because you know He isn't or because that would be too big a lie for even a lot of democRATs to swallow?
"I don't wear my own faith on my sleeve."
God said that we shouldn't hide our light under a bushel. Why do you want to hide yours, John? Is it because you don't have a light?
Ohm for clarification on my last post, I was thinking that Kerry meant on the side of the democRATs...not America.
If I were still available and on the prowl, I might, but I'm happy with my married life and three little girls...No need to do any "advertising"...LOL
My husband said the people there would think "Our guy talks about that God stuff better than Bush!"
Is that yours, because it is profound.
Yes. Learned the hard way.
All this "sign of the cross" and "on the side of God", but I think it was on his video (maybe it was in his speech) that he talked about a "higher power". Maybe he was talking about big government!?
After what I will always believe was divine intervention that stopped Gore from stealing the election, I would say Kerry is 100% right. He'll protect this country again too, I pray.
