Voting on whether to keep God as part of the verbiage in the Democrat platform at their convention was the most bizarre thing I think I've ever seen.
Half yelling "yes" and the half yelling louder "NO!"
Then Obama says God bless America and a priest comes out and says a prayer at the end.
Absolutely bizarre.
It's why Obama and progressive secularists must lose. It's only going to get worse.
How could it get worse?? You already are reduced to scrounging around for used furniture and junk used cars.

You've been a dirt poor cracker all your life and you say it's gonna get worse?? How could it?? You already live like the Okies in 'The Grapes of Wrath'!!

God has no place in the public square. There are many religions in America.

Do they all get to make the rules, or is that only open to Christians?? LOL

That's your right and your business.
But it's not man made rules. It's God's plan for redemption.

And shame on you for comparing me and other Christians to the Taliban, Lily.
I really do think liberals are sadly losing their minds.
Mitt said , " if I get elected, I will put a stop payment on all FEMA checks"

WARNING TO ALL CONSERVATIVES !!!!!
FOX News has uncovered a plot by Obama to void their votes. Disappearing black ink has been sent to voting districts that traditionally vote Republican. To insure that your vote will count FOX is encouraging all their viewers to bring a red crayon with them today and use it to insure that their vote will count.

A group of decentralized institutions within the justice system of Roman Catholic Church were guilty of forced conversions during the infamous Inquisition. Protestant Christians were considered "heretics" and became suspect as well. Christianity, however, spread throughout the centuries because of the power of the Holy Spirit to convict one person at a time to turn away from their rebellion against God. No forced conversions were necessary.
You should take that passage from the Qur'an to radical Muslims. Just don't expect to come back.
But you can walk into any Christian church anywhere in the world and feel safe and welcomed. Radical Muslims might blow you up or kill you in the Middle East, but the fact is Christians are still persecuted even today.
Your knowledge of history is flawed Carol, the Inquisition along with torture was sanctioned by the Christian Church. In Spain Muslims and Jews were forced to either convert or leave the country leaving all of their possessions behind. Those that did convert were under constant suspicion and were subject to arrest and torture on the mere suspicion of backsliding.
But let's see how Muslims have been treated in this so called Christian nation;
Bridgeport, CT August 2010
Picketers targeted a mosque during Ramadan and shouted "murderers" and "Jesus hates Muslims" at worshippers, including children.
Columbia TN, February 2008
Neo-Nazis burned down a mosque.
Knoxville TN, September 2010
A burned Quran was left outside of a mosque.
Murfreesboro TN, May 2010
Opponents of a planned mosque have vandalized the mosque site, including setting fire to construction vehicles.
Gainesville FL, July 2010
Protestors outside of a local mosque carried signs declaring that "Islam is the devil."
Arlington TX, July 2010
Vandals burned playground equipment at a mosque and spray-painted a picture of Uncle Sam assaulting Allah in the parking lot.
Katy TX, December 2006
Opponents of a plan to construct a mosque held pig races every Friday evening on bordering property in hopes of offending Muslims on their holy day.
Phoenix AZ, August 2010
Vandals threw paint on the floor, shot out windows, and wrote anti-Muslim slurs on the walls of a local mosque.
No one should be persecuted for their faith Carol.

Only in your parallel universe.
The economy was actually doing just fine with unemployment below 5% up until the house of cards fell. We didn't see the repercussions until 2008. Now ask yourself why that happened.
It would have happened under any president.
You're the one living in a parallel universe Carol, there was a festering boil ready to pop due to Republican laissez faire policies that allowed non regulated mortgage lenders to make sketchy loans and infect the entire system including Fannie and Freddie with these toxic assets. That's the result of your limited government.

Nov. 5: Late Poll Gains for Obama Leave Romney With Longer Odds

By NATE SILVER

Mr. Romney’s chances of winning the Electoral College have slipped, and are now only about 8 percent according to the forecast model — down from about 30 percent 10 days ago.

Voting for Romney after the train wreck of that was the eight years of W. Bush is like losing your pay check playing a rigged game of three-card monte and then playing the same game again a week later cause the cards are a different color.

It's all over but the shouting now...

No matter who wins this election. The country needs to support the winner... not like the republicans did in 2008...

Obama or Romney he is the President of all of us and he is an American..

If your an American you will support the winner.We all must demand congress work together to decide the best way forward with the best ideas of both sides....
