Maybe, but that's where we are headed. Sex-change operations will be covered by Medicare and Obamacare.
Note also the immigration rights groups are already lobbying for illegal aliens to be covered by Obamacare, something not addressed in any of the Obamacare cost projections.
It's not right!

RealDave are you having an identity Crisis whether you’re Straight or Gay? I know Liberal definition of Tolerance “If it feels good do it’ but even Sotomayor has some Moral issues about same-sex marriage so is she a Bigot?

Honestly I hadn't considered the Muslim angle before__thanks.
The founding fathers had no working knowledge of Buddhism and only a conceptual/abstract understanding of Islam as passed along by the Moors.
The founding fathers were not real handy with non European cultures, as demonstrated by how they dealt with the Native Americans.
Though I've had no level of disrespect for you, you've gained my respect by admitting you were wrong. Seems those on this thread see that as a foreign concept! They'll argue a lie just to feel right!

Jesus Christ was a patriotic conservative - words that, by definition, define each other. "Patriotism" literally means faithful to the father, whereas, in stark contrast, liberalism in effect means to do away with what the father has established. By literal definition, liberal means unpatriotic.
The Messiah warned His followers to hold true to the Father, just as His Firstborn Son holds true to the Father. When it comes to salvation, "liberals" aren't going to make it because "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."
The Holy Scriptures
"7:21 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. 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 7:26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it."
In matters of salvation, Satan is the ultimate Liberal. He is the "spirit" of all "do as you please" false "Christianity" - a lawless, Bible-rejecting anarchy, regardless of how self-righteous (keeping in mind that liberalism literally means to please one's self) the deception makes itself out to be.
"11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ [see Satan's Sermons]. 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." (2 Corinthians 11:13-15 KJV)
The genuine freedom that true Christians have is being liberated from the death penalty that is coming upon all who refuse to truly obey God (see The Immoral Won't Become Immortal), according to His true Word, not according to some "liberal interpretation" that produces self-righteous Satanic anarchy in which salvation will not be accomplished.
"6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof [see The Devil's Lust For You]. 6:13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
6:15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace?[see Grace Into Licentiousness] God forbid. 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness." (Romans 6:12-18 KJV)

Fact Finder:(a) Even though the Holy Bible (see our Holy Bible Reading Plan With Study Notes) is the "good news" ("Gospel" is from a Greek word that means good news) about the Creator's love, equality, and justice for all people, some Bible ignoring or rejecting "liberals" have falsely and erroneously called the Word of God "hate literature." What is the Truth that they are needlessly missing for themselves?(b) What do "liberals" need to do to become Patriotic Citizens of The Truth in the coming Kingdom of God?

Easter is the Christian celebration of a risen Christ.

The pagan holiday was probably celebrated by a different version of modern-day liberals creating another distraction.

Happy Easter anyway, Tenzing.

You do realize that Bush proposed the bailouts right?
Both the Senate and the House had to pass the bill before Bush could sign it. It passed the Senate 74–25 and the House 263–171. Democrats took control of Congress in 2007. TARP was passed in 2008. Senator Obama voted for it.

Many times on Easter I'll get out the rabbit fur coat Bill bought me when we students at the elite mid-western university, SIU. Yes, I'll take all my clothes off and just roll my naked body around and around on it on the dining room table. Once, I woke up and was startled to see the paper-boy and his friends with their little faces plastered up against the sliding glass door out onto the porch with all their little winkies out. Kids! Ah, spring!

Well, on a scale of one to twelve, it's about as pathetic as a bunch of jews watching Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible IV on what, for christians allegedly, is the "holiest" day of the year. Of course, they did kill the stupid prick in the first place...

Say, um, how can you tell the mormon at Passover? He's the one secretly recording the jews at dinner hoping he can pick up some investment advice.

The Religious Origins of Liberalism

In columns for The Daily Caller and The Week, Matt K. Lewis explains why social conservatives have lost the culture wars:

…many social conservative positions are buttressed on faith. But they also believe — and this is important, politically — that a proper and primary role of government is the preservation of virtue. And part and parcel of this is the assumption that our society is merely a short-term destination on the way to our heavenly home. This, of course, is in strong contrast to Y.O.L.O.(“you only live once”) worldview.

Here’s the problem: Not only do secular liberals reject this philosophy, but so do other elements of the conservative “three-legged-stool.”…Whereas social conservatives look to the Church for guidance,“classical liberals”(the Free Market, limited government ideology that values individuals) probably trace their fundamental beliefs back to Locke.

This is an important insight about the tensions in the conservative coalition. But it requires some elaboration and qualification if it is not to be misunderstood.

First, belief “that a proper and primary role of government is the preservation of virtue” is not distinctively Christian. Rather, it is main theme of the republican political tradition, the main elements of which were articulated by Cicero in and for a pagan society.

Some features of Cicero’s republicanism were adapted for Christian use by Augustine. In modern times, however, they have often been the vehicle for a critique of Christianity as corrosive of the military courage and concern for the common good necessary to a free society. According to Machiavelli and Rousseau, for example, Christianity is politically dangerous precisely because it encourages believers to seek their true home in heaven rather than defending their city on earth. In Europe, this neo-Roman argument rather than liberal individualism was the inspiration for the secularizing politics that emerged from the French Revolution.

Second, the individualism Lewis associates with Locke is historically derived from Christian sources. In fact, the whole point of Locke’s minimal definition of the state as a voluntary association for protection of life and property is that it leaves the individual free to relate himself to God as he sees fit.“Classical liberalism”, in other words, is historically based on Protestant theological arguments about the requirements for salvation rather than concerns about the market as such.

There is no necessary connection, then, between Christian faith and the politics of virtue or between secularism and theories of limited government. Rather than projecting contemporary categories into the past, we should investigate categories and concepts that were actually used in specific settings. The American Founding and early Republic, in particular, can be understood better in light of the Christian republicanism inherited from Calvinism than either conservatism or liberalism. But that is a story for another post.
