FOX contributor Erick Erickson....
I Increasingly Find Conflict Between My Faith and Some Conservative Discourse
Were I to recreate this site, I think it would have no comments section. Disqus is just horrible. I do not recommend it to anyone. And it just helps further what I see on so much social media these days. As much as the internet can bring people together of like mind, it also can help shrill minorities of people think their views are more mainstream than they are. That then emboldens them further.
I am heartened by this post; I hope the other false Christians on here read and think.
Many Christians, including myself, felt the same way about the immigrant children as Erick Erickson. He, too wanted expedited deportations and a secure border. But wanted to make sure the children, some victims of human trafficking, were taken care of, fed, and comforted."

I took a lot of heat for strongly supporting that same position on here.

Erickson was speaking from a Christian conservative's point of view.

He also wrote, "I知 a conservative before I知 a Republican. But before I知 a father or husband, I am a Christian. My politics have to be balanced by my faith. That faith requires me to put faith, hope, mercy, and grace ahead of much, including a lot of short term political gain. And sometimes that requires me to rely on Christ for justice, not the government."

Not all conservatives and Republicans are Christians. Just like not all Democrat liberals are atheists.

More Democrat liberals want to rely on the government instead of Christ...as Erickson pointed out since, as a Christian conservative, he could not do. Neither can I. Neither can many non-Christian conservatives.

As a liberal democrat, can you? Most democrats, Christian or not, seem to have no problem with it.

HMMM. So you are saying because Sharpton referred to Brown as a "gentle giant" he is a voice for the looters? You seem to be wearing colored blinders. How conveniently you ignored the FACT that he told them being violent was a betrayal to Brown's name. THAT is not the voice of a looter.
I don't like Al Sharpton but, unlike you, I don't let my personal opinion of the man warp my brain to the point where I can't see straight. You really need to see someone about your anger issues.

It only proves we were paying the Pakistanis big sums of money to keep him and his concubines hidden in plain sight.
And the Pakistani doctor who helped play a major role in finding him was put away and forgotten about by this administration.
There was no political advantage in putting pressure on the Pakistanis to free him. While Obama took all the credit for the decade long effort to find and kill bin Laden.
All he had to do was give the go ahead once the long search that began under Bush had ended. Anyone could have done that.
What took courage was making the tough decisions that led to his discovery. Obama doesn't "do" tough decisions. Except which golf course to grace his presence on any given day.
UM.... NO... NOPE... THAT'S NOT EVEN CLOSE, DEAR... OH, NEVER MIND...

well except for bringing justice to the man responsible for over 3,000 American deaths and serving notice that we will hunt you down and kill you if you attack United States citizens
you're just pissed because President Obama did what President Dumbya couldn't
the idea that the death of one man in any way provides comfort to the victims of 9/11 is absurd.....

the enemy responsible for 9/11 is radical Islam, not bin Laden....

and radical Islam is alive and well....

Good morning. I see you were very busy last night. Good job. I often wonder what was missing in the childhood of a conservative that prevented them from building a sense of the world they live in.

In fact, as Media Matters for America documented, the Gorelick memo merely clarified long-unwritten restrictions on the sharing of information between the FBI's intelligence arm and the Justice Department's criminal division, and had no impact on communications between the FBI and the CIA, the Department of Defense, or any other agencies. Former Attorney General John Ashcroft stated in his testimony before the 9-11 Commission that the Gorelick memo provided the "basic architecture" for the 1995 guidelines established by Reno, which formalized rules for intelligence sharing that were already in place. And as the 1995 guidelines clearly state, the Gorelick memo and the guidelines applied only to intelligence sharing "between the FBI and the Criminal Division" within the Justice Department, not between the Justice Department and any other agency such as the CIA:

Media Matters is part of the problem. Just like you. Find a more credible and honest source.

Look up "Clinton under fire for taking illegal donations from Chinese" and the timing of that to the "wall" going up between the FBI and the CIA.

Let me know what you find.

~Erick Erickson, FOX News contributor

Kind of negates Lily's whole premise of wanting more conservatives to be like Erickson.

Lily WANTS Americans to rely on government. Christ doesn't even enter into the picture with progressive liberals. So why would she use him as another way to beat Christians over the head?

Seriously? Goldwater suggested using atomic bombs in North Vietnam to defoliate forests and destroy bridges, roads, and railroad lines. That's what you consider a good alternative? Geez

LBJ used Americans as cannon fodder for his political objectives....

Vietnam was a great success until you libtards gain power and cot off funding to the South Vietnamese. Typical libtards, claim defeat from victory.

And the only reason I took a lot of heat for strongly supporting the same position as Erickson on feeding and clothing the immigrant children after they were here is because of a lack of understanding on the part of a few other conservatives who didn't understand at the onset that I didn't support their being here in the first place, just like Erickson.

Only the liberal posters wanted them to become automatic American citizens even though they didn't have anywhere to go and no parents to go with them. And even if it would encourage another influx of unaccompanied immigrant children.

Were there any liberals offering to take them in? Seems Obama was just dumping them on cities throughout the country without even giving state officials any notice. As long as they weren't his problem, he didn't have any problem making them someone else's.
