You may say you are a Christian and vote for Obama, but, Gay Marriage, Abortion, No praying, I don't think so. If you believe in the Bible and God's word you will not vote for him.
Just think about that on Election Day

The Republican party has taken over many of the Christian sheep in America much like Joseph Smith took over parts of the church and converted it to Mormonism. Republicans stand for war and repressing the poor, not very Christian ideas. There is a reason the founders of this country wanted separation of church and state. Do we really want a theocratic form of government?

The truth, There is not anyway to stop someone from praying. To follow the Bible,-- enter into your closet and after the door is shut there pray.(thats not an exact quote but close enough.) To follow the Bible we are not to pray in public. Gay marriage I'm with you. On abortion, Romney was at one time against all abortion, then when he saw he was losing a lot of women votes, he changed to, rape, woman's health, and incest was rights for abortion. Ryan still holds to the zero abortion policy so we really do not know where Romney stand on abortion, he changes to often. To make a woman do something that could harm her, or have a baby from a rape, that should be her choice. I'm not for abortion as birth control. I don't understand why the Republican party is against requirement to pay for birth control. That is much less cost. Romney saying he would repel the health care act, which would take away health care from over 30 million people, is not a Christ like act. When people are having to decide, to eat and do with out meds. or do with out heat so they can have something to eat, is not a Christ like act. When millions of children have to do with out, is not a Christ like act. You can see there is enough sin to go around. So I would pose the question, can we vote for any man or woman and be Christian? We have to deside which is more Christ like. To me that is Obama. Wanting to help all the people of this country have health care, that is Christ like.

People like you ruin politics and everyday life. Vote for them for their political beliefs not religious. How could you vote for a Mormon if you're a Christian? Give me a break dumbass.

Republicans sure know how to agitate trouble! If one is elected,and Mitt Romney's already stated the U.S. is too lax in the world's politics(troops in the Mideast,thousands of Americans killed over there(?)),there will be World War III for sure!Anybody that can accuse all Democrats of being irreligious,is the Devil's pawn!!!

Mt:7:13: Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15: Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16: Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17: Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18: A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19: Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20: Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21: Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

How can anyone claim to be a Republican and a Christian? Republicans are so filled with hate. How could anyone claim to be a Christian and vote for a Mormon?? Romney belongs to a cult.

To get rid of abortion, Roe v Wade needs to be overturned. When it was put in place years ago, only 1 democrat justice voted for it so go figure. It was put in place by REPUBLICANS & they like to get elected on the coattails of Christian voters but they have no intention of changing. It wasn't the democrats who went skinny dipping in the Sea of Galilee where Jesus walked. It was drunken republicans! The Bible that I study was written by the prophets & Christ's deciples, not by a book found by Joseph Smith 200 or so years ago. His claim was that God told him not to go by my Bible, to go find this Book of Mommon. My Bible says not to add or take away from the Bible. But evidently, you think this is christian. Romney tells a different tale every other day. Sure, there are things on both sides that are wrong but my Bible supports taking care of people who can't take care of themselves. I think social secuity, medicare & medicade are wonderful programs but if you think it is in the best interest of God to support Romney & Ryan who want to cut more taxes on their fat incomes & let the middle class fall through the cracks, by all means go for it but don't judge others. I heard Romney say he had no problem with a loving gay couple adopting children. Chistain values?????

If you are in Virginia you will have 5 people to choose from for president. I know that one from the two major parties will win but if we never vote for a third party we will always be stuck with only two major parties. Gary Johnson will probably be on the ballot in all 50 states but you never hear about him. You can also choose Virgil Goode, or Jill Stein.

Maybe so but if Obama was a Mormon, he would have already been publicly crucified by the Fox Network & their worshippers!

I learned a great revelation from this site. Wanting to help all the people of this country have healthcare, that is Christlike. That means Karl Marx was Christlike. Same with Friedrich Engels, Henri de Saint Sauvier, Fourier, Robert Owen and the other socialists. Christlike. Imagine that. O great wise skunk holler bill and others like you, it's called CONTROL. I ain't yelling but emphasising. The great and benevolent government healthcare is control, not help. If I give a 20 dollar gift certificate from WalMarts, you don't use it at food lion. Does that make sense to you? With my present healthcare, I choose the course I take for each health issue of mine and you want me to surrender this to your great, wonderful, benevolent federalists on the sunny banks of sweet deliverance in DC. Thanks but no thanks. I am perfectly fit and able to make my own decisions and if I ever get in a mindset I can't make said decision, I trust my family better than any federal government employee to determine my course of action. thankee!!!

I bet you don't have insurance. You use the emergency room for treatment. You bury canned goods in the back yard. You own two guns, wear an aluminum foil helmet, and watch Fox News. Paranoia will destroy ya!

Like it really matters what you think of me, professor two cents. And your Janeness, it doesn't matter what you bet or think about me neither, lefty. What really matters is when it gets down to the nitty gritty between you socialists/communists against we American Constitutionalists. Personal attacks because of your leftist jargon has no substance. That is why in every leftist society it takes secret police, reeducation camps like your backyhochiminhhanoichini trash. truth is paranoia. In your dreams lefty.

So when (in your Constitutionalist dreams) the government is not responsible for anything and everyone is left to take care of themselves what happens to our society? The rich begin to control the poor just like in the Dark Ages. Those with the most power and money make the decisions.
