Dumbass.
I knew it. You only care about your pathetic Republicans.
"real dumb"
You are dumb. Without approval you say? Who gives the approval? Union members. They approve contributions to candidates the like, almost all democrats. Why should a reublican union member support the democrat party.
Boy o boy, you are dumb. Do you ever think before you blather?
Come "real dumb" try, and just maybe you will post something that makes sense.

Two questions.
1.) politically motivated version of the creator is ...what?
2.) Why are you venting about Christianity at this moment? Point?
Enjoy your politically motivated bliss from ignorance:}
1.)Christianity, then as now, was promulgated by the Emperor Constantine as a means to keeping the pagans and the Jews in line by co-mingling their beliefs into one belief-set. Now it's promulgated by Politicians of every stripe and character, as a means to getting elected, and as a means of encouraging the populace to place their aspirations for a relationship to the Divine in the 'hereafter', rather than in the here and now.

2.)I was not 'venting', I was answering your question. I'm not invested in whether you like my answer or not.

Stop right there, Bag Lady. I made a comment about the wheelchair racist who shot a 65 year old woman dead at a gas station. I said that he should consider committing suicide because God helps those who help themselves. It was a cynical and jocular play on words. Nothing religious. Nothing Christian. You then came back with something about Christianity and some other related anti-religious fluff. I asked you why you were laying into Christianity and how in the hell that related to a racist murderer.

Now, you're back here giving me a lesson in Christian history and how Christianity is promoted by American politicians.

Do you always get lost on the way back home from the Germane Supermarket?

Didn't they suggest using Retraining Camps?

They didn't like drug users, either, and, if they couldn't wean some people off from the "Opiate of the people", they simply killed 'em, right?

That's why the Boy Messiah has so much trouble with the US Constitution. Murder is illegal and Retraining Camps could be seen as Government Religion. Thank God for the Bill of Rights. Yes. God.

In lieu of all the Constitutional issues clouding up the Jerk-In-Chief's wet dreams of power, the Liberal Mainstream Media is stepping in to fulfill the duties you would find performed in those Retraining Camps. Indoctrination.

But the Boy Messiah still wants to shove abortion down the throats of religiously owned hospitals. Let's wait and see if our illustrious and godless SCOTUS is up to the task of helping the Jerk-In-Chief or hindering him.

Not the man that raised the nations debt by 186% and gave amnesty to millions of illegals. How would that play to the Tea Party?Only way Reagan could be elected today would be running as a Democrat. But then again that's the only way any President from now on will be elected.
He wasn't perfect. No one ever said he was. Certainly, not me.

But he was a leader.

That's what we need now. Not perfection.
