There are no Christians that would support him, they are hypocrites. No way would a true Christian support gay marriage, women being superior, abortion,and everything else he stands for. He is a devil.

Would a Christian support a racist, or an adulterer, a spouse who cheats on there spouse. Would a Christian support a liar or a thief, a smoker or a drinker ( those who destroy their temple), would a Christian support a lawyer or a judge "luke 11 46-52"
Would a Christian support any person that did not live and obeyed the 10 commandments.
Yes

It's funny when ppl use a Bible verse for one thing then don't want the Bile mentioned for anything else that they don't agree with. It is called hypocrite.

I never texted one thing about using or misusing a bible or bibical verse, anyone can use the versus in the bible any way they like.
BTW a hypocrite is a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, I don't.

I can't help but believe that this was all in retaliation of 9/11. Please America don't forget this. I refuse to believe Osama was captured let alone killed. We the American people deserved to see this if it were true. We lost a lot of brave men and women in this long war on terror :(. Also a lot of foreign innocent deaths.:(

I must also say Bush wasn't afraid to kick arse and take names, he didn't bow
deeply to Islam's king, nor did he praise foreign people who he deemed a possible or even remote threat to us Americans, or place them above
America. His hand was on his heart when the Pledge of Allegiance was recited. Has Obama done this? You need to watch the first video you posted. It will show you that he does not. A vote for Obama now...is just a sell out of American people. He is not looking out for the good of us American people. His main interest lies in Islam
I say if he loves it so much there as your first video states, he needs to be over there being their king, not our President.

I would vote for Donald Duck, or Elmer
Fudd, before I vote for Obama.

I'm personally discouraged with both parties. Being a conservative, I'm no more impressed with the right than I am with the left. The left is referred to the "bleeding hearts" but I often find their sympathy is misplaced. They claim tolerance but just try disagreeing with their views. I don't understand why they'll have you put in jail or your child taken away for discipling them (not beating) but they have no problem killing them from abortions. I think liberals should be a separate party because I know plenty good Christian "blue dog" democrats who are just as conservative as they come. As for being Republican that does not mean one automatically has admission into the pearly gates. In the book of James it states it is a sin to show favortism of the rich over the poor something this party is noted for. I remember that very party throwing stones at Bill Clinton for his indiscretions while all the time having many skeletons in theirs. Talk about hypocrisy. We've also had in the past a Republican president and Republican controlled Congress and guess what, abortion was still legal!!!!!! I'm just so sick of the politics of both parties. Remember God is not spelled GOP!!!

It is a sad commentary for citizens of this area to be so misinformed and bigoted as to bring religion into the conversation for what is and isn't best for America.
For the record: I respect anyone and everyone that takes to religion for hope, for strength, for moral structure, for solace, or peace. Such an act of absolute humility and earnest to seek greater awareness than ones self interest is sacred, is empowering, is beyond reproach by anyone or anything.
However, if and when one's religious beliefs preaches or predicates a level of intolerance, exclusivity, or other variations of hate, religion acts as a greater impediment than a unifier and thusly should be removed from the conversation completely as it should be for the presidential election.
There is no god in politics, but providence in the policies that act in the best interest of all mankind. America needs and demands a certain level of government to build and to sustain a civilized nation through social programs granting every citizen a chance to be prosperous in health, in areas of education, in employment, and in personal growth if they are to have a fighting chance at obtaining the American dream. It is only from the wealthiest or the fool to suggest otherwise. Social programs, e.g. safety nets, are the cornerstone of a flourishing and/or functional society.
"If you starve a creature long enough of its daily sustenance, it will drink from whatever trough is readily available regardless of pride or ideals."
It is a matter of function as opposed to comformity that leads one forward in this regard or at the very least, on a primal level ... i would hope. Naturally, as i crafted the previous idea in my head, i was anagolously drawn back to my political days going door to door in many empoverished neighboorhoods only to find that the most affluent and the likely criminal elements (drugs, gangs, petty theft, etc.) alike share a common thread, e.g. they were predominately Republican and/or socially conservative when you sat down and listened to their hopes and fears. Obviously, their political leanings inspite of the economical quagmire they and their families found themselves in, stood out like a sore thumb which begged the question "why? "
Many a political science major worth their salt will chalk it up as the holy trinity:
Upbringing, prior educators or mentors' political predisposition, or the much confused 'god' factor.
That being said, it is a readily used misnomer and misinformation tatic used on the gullible that social programs like hud, wic, foodstamps, etc, do not fall under the umbrella of safety net policies. By this misperception, the ones needing social programs the most rally against the role of government in their lives leaving a GOP capable and more than willing to exploit this come election season when pandering for their vote.
Christ himself spoke of charity, equality, and acceptance of all man. Reference the beattitudes for more information on this. He further illustrated the point by making it personal in matthew 25:45 by saying what you do unto the least of these, you do unto me.

The reason candidates such as Palin, Bachman, Perry, Santorum and the like come across like clown shoes in a presidential campaign is because extremist or literalist of the Christian Bible either scare people with their views or reveal themselves as being ignorant,bigoted, or simply out of touch. As offensive as it is to suggest to religious right, they need to reread the first line of the Constitution -- "We the people..."

America is and shall remain inclusive of others, their ideas, their culture, their beliefs, and their gender. America is and shall continue to embrace the needs of the rich and poor alike without profit nor prejudice. America, through our stumblings and our succeses, shall ever persevere in trying to remain true to her highest of tenants -- liberty, equality, and the pursuit of happiness -- if we are to remain a great nation under God.

I agree in part...but you must have God in the equation and this nation has thrown God out and perversion is the norm theses days.

You want to support Romney? A mormon, a man that believes the book of mormon is more accurate than The Holy Bible, a man that believes the morman book Jesus is superior to the bible Jesus, a man that believes there is more than one God, a man that believes he can become a God, a man that believes Jesus and Satan are brothers, a man that supports the baptism of Adolph Hitler, Eva Braun and the entire upper ranks of the German Army that MURDERED millions of Christian Jews during the Holocaust.

Get on the internet and read the DOCUMENTED FACTS of the mormon church. Get on the internet and read how the mormons Baptized Hitler and others. Type in the search Adolph Hitler Baptized by mormons. Why did they Proxy Baptize Hitler and others BECAUSE they wanted to be the superior religeon..

NOW as a Christian if you are a Christian what do you do?

Just heard that Mitt made a considerable donation to Samaritans Purse. This is a charity by the Grahams (Billy & Frank). The Grahams website until about two weeks ago had that the mormon religon was a cult, it's funny that the Grahams would stoop to this level. I can't believe that money would make them change the views of the church and most of all the writings of The Bible. Shame on them. I'm not voting for the cult!
