Ryan is a good man, but does not redeem the abortionist/homosexualist statist Romney
Aug 11, 2012 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 08/11/2012 4:42:48 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Except for his unfortunate go along to get along support of TARP, bailouts, stimulus spending and the increased credit limit, etc, Ryan is a pretty good choice. Probably the best choice of the RINOS that were on Romney's short list. I support Ryan for the vice presidency. Wish he were at the top of the ticket, though.

But I still cannot and will not support the grand father of ObamaCare. Romney still loves and brags about his bastard brainchild, RomneyCare, even today when he knows what an anti-liberty socialist POS it is.

And the fact that he advocated that abortion should be safe and legal in America for over three decades of his adult lifetime and even advocated that Roe v Wade should be supported and sustained as settled law precludes any consideration whatsoever by this pro-life Christian for Myth Romney for the presidency.

And the fact that he boasted that he would be better for "gay rights" than Ted Kennedy, and proved it just increases my resistance.

That, and his penchant for gun control, his continuing support for global warming, gays in the scouts, gays in the military, and his record of appointing liberal judges makes it all but impossible for me to support him.

Lastly, we're having a bit of changeover on our moderator staff. At least two moderators resigned this afternoon after I flatly refused to rein in a so-called anti-Mormon "bigot" on FR. Well, if being in opposition to false prophets and false prophecy makes a Christian believer a bigot, then I guess I'm a bigot. I've posted before that I flat do not believe that the Book of Mormon is the true word of God. Nor do I believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. The Christian bible warns us to be weary of false prophets and that I am. Romney being the presumptive Republican nominee does not change that fact.

McCain was at least pro-life. I’ll never vote for that gun grabbing, abortionist/homosexualist socialist POS Romney and you can take that to the bank!!

JimRob:
Those who can put aside their conservative principles momentarily to vote for the lesser evil should go ahead and do so.
Kevmo:
That does not sound healthy. I believe it’s the first time I’ve heard you say it.

sf4dubya:
Jim has done pretty muchthat every single election. ***Provide links, please.
SF4dubya:
This post...

Well, that was instructive. That may have been the only time JimRob ever suggested to FReepers to put aside their conservative principles, and he certainly learned that lesson — he’s not suggesting it again. Your post said that he does that “pretty much every single election”, and your one link does not come close to proving that assertion.

"Lighten up.

Pulling stuff out of context when people are trying to old school lighten the mood before the damnations and beatings begin is not equivalent to hatred."

LOL, "out of context"? Really? Barry, is that you?

See, if sf4dubya decides a religion is worthy of mocking, it isn't bigotry. He's only denigrating a bunch of hillbillies, after all, and that's acceptable. /s

Those Christians who witness to the Mormons here, have helped Mormon freepers escape the cult, right here at FR, many are themselves ex-Mormons.

Some of the freepers you call Mormon haters and bashers, are Mormons who became ex-Mormons, that became enlightened here at freerepublic during these discussions and are now among the best Christian posters on Mormonism here.

Do you regret them being saved?

That's just none of your business. But, they have left, and apparently, without your permission.

Let's get up to date on this matter. I asked another poster to document that people have left, you joined in by saying that "dozens have left in the past few days". None of my business? Of course it's my business when you are talking nonsense and I will point it out. You said it - "people have left..By the dozens" prove it in some way. You cannot so you resort to mindless pap like this:

I am not compelled to document to you anything I have seen, heard, or witnessed. And because I'm not, I won't. Christ said let your 'yea' be 'yea' and your 'no' be 'no.' I don't have to take oaths to you or anyone else. You have exposed yourself as my an enemy and not someone to whom I would confide any names, numbers, or places where you may find those names, numbers, or places.

I certainly can document more than dozens, but certainly won't to you.

Completely childish except the paraphrasing of Jesus, which has no contextual meaning for this discussion.

You will not show me and others where dozens have left in the past few days because you simply cannot. Your mouth has done over run your ass.

You are losing the argument. You name call, pontificate, and avoid the subject at hand.

Please, be clear and tell us why those whom you call bigots are, in fact, bigots.

If you disagree with the precepts of Mormonism does that make you a bigot?

If a Mormon is a liberal, and you disagree with their politics, are you a bigot?

Because, what I see, is not Christ-like. I see hammers, sickles, knives, and saws. I don't see Christ, I see people who were like the pharisees, dragging that woman through town, full of self-righteousness, because they finally 'caught her in the very act.'

Yet GOD showed love and compassion. Christ probably wrote each pharisee's name, one by one, in the dirt...and next to it, a woman each was guilty of committing a sin with in their youth. And one by one, each pharisee shut up and walked away.

It was Christ who had the right, the moral absolute right, to condemn that woman. But He did not. He loved her, and talked to her, and forgave her. He won her over, I have no doubt, to eternal life through His showing love and act with love.

I wouldn’t go to a website started by Jeremiah Wright hoping to correct the “bigotry and intolerance” of the site participants because it goes to the very top. It would beg the question of why I was there in the first place, other than to troll. Why are YOU here in the first place?

Please notice, though, that you are (unintentionally?) offending Christian posters on Free Republic and that what you post here is making less and less common sense.

But If you are wanting to offend Christians (for the fun of it?), then I will remember your advanced age and overlook your bad and disrespectful behavior.

I’m not bound to answer something simply because you asked it. This isn’t a fascistic state yet and who the hell do you think you are anyway?

I am a supporter of conservative ideals and principles. Always have been.

Conservative does NOT equal Anti-Mormon any more than it equals Anti-Jew.

You’ve never been the target of intolerance for what you believe. That’s obvious. I have.

And when I see it, I will stand against it. It is ignorant and has no place in a truly free republic.

Again, we are all here at the pleasure of the owner and even if I am removed, I will continue to stand against it- while simultaneously respecting the rights for bigots to speak their minds.

What is so confusing that you people cannot understand that concept? I could understand confusion about freedom of expression in 1980’s Poland- but I don’t believe that’s where we are!

And who died and made YOU the one to question why anyone is here?

Bunch of Sadducees.

And yet, just a few months later, Christ/HolySpirit condemned Ananias & Saphira to death for lying to the Holy Spirit. There were no knives, hammers, nor sickles. The 2 people just keeled over right where they stood. Christ takes it seriously when people lie to the Church for nefarious gain. The same Christ Who sent the adulturous woman on her way.

What you “see” is people defending their faith. Your faith. They aren’t dragging anyone to the square, like the pharisees dragged that woman. The heretics are teaching openly in the square. The new testament shows Christ dealing harshly with such heresies.

Perhaps SouthTexas and MJJ could get a "diversity" YouTube-based choir together -- ya know, consisting of their sphere of influence, the Daily Kuss folks, and then Mormons...

I've got a name already picked out:

The Mormon Tubercular Choir...

Too bad Mojitos only have about 10% alcohol...The Mormon Tubercular Choir could use something stronger, per Joseph Smith: (Some people might think I'm making up the following Lds "scriptural" verse...but I'm not): ... It comes from their highly touted "Word of Wisdom" section in Doctrine & Covenants:

"...strong drinks are NOT for the belly, but for the washing of your bodies." (Lds "scripture" -- Doctrine & Covenants 89:7)

(So, Joe, if ya get anything stronger than Mojitos, be sure you use it for your bath, not your belly...and please advise any choir members accordingly (Well, they'll actually already be "in the know"...The original Joe -- Joe Smith -- was telling Mormons that for years to explain why he had strong booze in the house).

"I...."I"....."I"...."I" see"

Frankly, my dear...I don't give a damn what you see.

Joseph Smith began the mormon religion in hatred agains Christianity with his own words.

18 My object in going to ainquire of the Lord was to know which of all the sects
was right, that I might know which to join. No sooner, therefore, did I get
possession of myself, so as to be able to speak, than I asked the Personages who
stood above me in the light, which of all the sects was right (for at this time
it had never entered into my heart that all were wrong)—and which I should join.
 19 I was answered that I must join none of them, for they were all awrong; and the Personage who addressed me said that all their creeds were an abomination in his sight; that those bprofessors were all ccorrupt; that: “they ddraw near to me with their lips, but their ehearts are far from me, they teach for doctrines the fcommandments of men, having a form of godliness, but they deny the gpower thereof.”
History of the Church, Vol. 1, Chapters 1-5

I’ll save the dirt diggers some time. I have voted pragmatically many times.

I understand pragmatism. I understand the theory that politics is the art of the possible. I once subscribed to the theory that the worst Republican is better than the best Democrat and that we must vote Republican to hold onto the majority, even if we have to vote for RINOs. I did my duty, held my nose and voted the RINO party line.

Then disaster struck. The Republican majority filled with RINOs turned out to be no better than the democrats and we quickly lost the majority as conservatives were turned off by their many betrayals and failure to even hold the line, much less cut!!

Those who wish to continue voting pragmatically may be my guest, but count me out. It’s a proven loser of a theory. And Karl Rove & Company can KMA about the art of the possible!! This is REBELLION!!

To hell with two-faced, lying politicians. I’ll place my faith in God, not any political party. With God, ALL things are possible!!

I’ll vote Republican when they run republican pro-life conservative candidates. No more Bushes!! No more Doles!! No more McCains!! No more Swartzeneggers!! And NO ROMNEY!! FUMR!! Abortionist/homosexualist statist RINO pukes are worse than democrats because they destroy the movement!!

Abortionism, homosexualism, gun grabbing, socialized healthcare, TARP, bailouts, stimulus spending, global warming, liberal judges, etc, brought to us by lying liberal progressive RINOS is too much to bear!!

Running Romney is a flat out betrayal of everything we stand for!!

Vote straight conservative and no matter who wins the presidency we either hold his feet to the fire with our conservative majority or we impeach his usurping treasonous ass!!

We are the resistance!!

Mr. Robinson is our host. I learned as a young man to respect a host and I have done so since I began writing here. And in my opinion, he has been very gracious.

I have neither tried to convince anyone to vote for Mr. Romney. As stated, I was not very fond of him from the beginning. I found his flopping on salient, conservative issues disconcerting and frankly, still do.

Mr. Robinson has stated his position and I respect it.

Others on this thread- have gone to great lengths to not simply state their feelings, but to bash and demoralize an entire people due to their religious beliefs. The constant barrage is not foreign to me.

While Mr. Robinson stated his beliefs and left it at that, the others who have tried to bully and malign could learn a lot from his example.

I will continue to stand up and speak, which is my G*d given right.

Neither you or any other guest here will stop me.

Finally- I am sorry your parents did not raise you better. Had they lived long enough to be “old coots”, perhaps you wouldn’t speak with such disdain and hatred.

In my opinion, you are the antithesis of the message of the Christ.

Colo...whay was there a reforemation? What did they reform? Why did the Protestants, protest? They made it clear back then...it was because there had been a general apostacy away from Christ's teachings

Jeff, please tell me you know the difference 'tween a reformation and a so-called "restoration from scratch?"

The Bible has all kinds of verses discussing apostasy; NONE of which are a "universal (total) apostasy" -- And I've examined every single Biblical verse cited by the Lds church which is meant to "prove" such a complete apostasy.

Jeff, guy, it all comes down to whether you're going to honor the apostle Paul, or subtly bill him as a "false prophet" -- for he prophesied in Ephesians 3:21: to him [God] be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

The apostle Paul's prophesy here is that ALL generations of the Church would (and have) given God glory, for ever and ever!

Do you believe Ephesians 3:21 -- or not?

And if you do, and if the church was STILL giving glory to God, then, no, no total apostasy...which you know even the Lds technically don't adhere to that...given that they say the apostle John never died...and neither those "Nephite disciples." If they are still wanderin' the earth, they ne'er yielded their "priesthood" authority, did they, Jeff?

And yet, just a few months later, Christ/HolySpirit condemned

The Holy Spirit condemned. Not the creature, but the Creator condemned.

It's not for you to condemn. It is not for me to condemn. God never told any one of us to condemn. He told us to preach the gospel, with humility, kindness, and love.

Philippians 2:

1 If there is therefore any exhortation in Christ, if any consolation of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any tender mercies and compassions,

2 make full my joy, that ye be of the same mind, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind;

3 doing nothing through faction or through vainglory, but in lowliness of mind each counting other better than himself;

4 not looking each of you to his own things, but each of you also to the things of others.

5 Have this mind in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

6 who, existing in the form of God, counted not the being on an equality with God a thing to be grasped,

7 but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men;

8 and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, becoming obedient even unto death, yea, the death of the cross.

9 Wherefore also God highly exalted him, and gave unto him the name which is above every name;

10 that in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things on earth and things under the earth,

11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

15 that ye may become blameless and harmless, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom ye are seen as lights in the world,

16 hold forth the word of life.

You don't hold the 'word of life'; you have hammers in your hand, beating people up who disagree with you. You're not humble, you're pompous and arrogant. You're not loving, you act with the same type of zealous hatred that an unbeliever acts. You're supposed to be as a light in the world, but you act as the darkness acts. I don't see Christian behaviors in many of you; I see no difference than liberal unbelievers.

And there friends, is a testimony of why this man will not vote for Mitt Romney without having to malign a faith.

It doesn’t matter how he feels about Mormons- there is plenty of reason not to support the Republican ticket without religious judgment.

Thank you Mr. Robinson for the ability to express myself here.

Though I am not a “bootlicker”, I am committed to Conservative principles and as I state repeatedly, I appreciate your hospitality.

Well, that’s fine, TN. I really don’t care.

What I care about is not having Obama the Marxist in the White House for another four.

Toodles.

Sir, you’ve veered into the cornfield again. Please think these things through before you post. Is there someone there at home who could help you sort this things out. The numbers are not adding up right now, where your posts are concerned.

Well, that was instructive. That may have been the only time JimRob ever suggested to FReepers to put aside their conservative principles, and he certainly learned that lesson — he’s not suggesting it again. Your post said that he does that “pretty much every single election”, and your one link does not come close to proving that assertion.

Stop putting words in my mouth that I didn't say. I said he, just like anyone else, is entitled to change their minds on an issue or a candidate in the face of Marxism. He does that every election, and I support him in that.

No more bannings of anti-Marxist presidential candidate supporters either, thankfully.

Bush 1999 anti http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1105167/posts

And that wraps up all the elections since 1998. He can change his mind or not change it this time, but people need to understand that he is vocalizing his personal choice, and not asking people to mimic him.

People who understand what I am saying can definitely put a donation in the tiller with a free conscience.

You seem surprised.

I don’t know how you have missed 6 years of us giving our reasons for not voting for Romney.

Looking at your posts, you don’t spend much time in the conservative politics here, and almost zero in regards to Romney.

You don’t really seem to know freerepublic well at all, and you don’t even realize that so many of the posters that you are attacking here have been among the best in exposing Romney and have been doing it since at least 2006,and some for much longer.

Well, if being in opposition to false prophets and false prophecy makes a Christian believer a bigot, then I guess I'm a bigot. I've posted before that I flat do not believe that the Book of Mormon is the true word of God. Nor do I believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. The Christian bible warns us to be wary of false prophets and that I am. Romney being the presumptive Republican nominee does not change that fact.

Amen, Jim.

And if urging ouright rejrection of a guy who was okay in principle, in the name of "gay rights," with forcing adoption agencies to cooperate with homosexuals "who love each other" is heresy, then call me a political heretic.

Pray for a plurality and vote for a plurality. It's the only hope for holding either of these disasters back.
