How can one be a christian and vote democrat? They booed God at their last convention, support gay marriage, child murder, stealing and unfortunately the list goes on. They are blood thirsty for war and how many innocent kids have died by drones? Now they want teenage kids who are in South American gangs to come sit among our children in public schools.

Before you attack me you must know that I am not a republican as they don't represent my beliefs anymore. Christian democrats are the worst type of hypocrites.

You judge (or misjudge) Christians as a whole by the few you see not acting Christian-like. That is your first mistake. Supporting an unpopular, even sinful act is NOT what many Christians are saying. Many Christians like myself favor civil rights for all. Jesus said hate the sin, not the sinner. What each individual decides to do, including sinning is between them and God, not a voting booth. I won't legislate sin like Muslims would do, but their governments are ran by their religion. Our is not. You have to separate church and state as it is meant to be according to the interpretation of our Constitution. I have no idea where you get the idea that Christians, or anyone for that matter, supports child murder, and stealing as you claim. My guess is you are playing word association or just twisting the truth. Not a very good example of yourself, if you ask me.

War is war which is dictated by governments, not Christians. Past wars have always be a result of partisan politics, so good luck with finding a politician that won't support US foreign policy.

I have no idea where you get any idea that wanting teenage kids who are in South American gangs to come sit among our children in public schools, has anything to do with Christians at all. That is just flat wrong. It is based on immigration laws passed in Congress in the 90's, 2002, and specifically the 2008 William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008, signed by President Bush.

As for the boos at the convention. You have been tainted by your news source. Here is what really happen, you decide who was boo'd.

The boos from the floor were aimed at Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who was running the convention at the time, and asked for three separate voice votes on the amendment that restored a mention of God. On the 3rd vote, Villaigosa ruled that the “Ayes” had won—by a two-thirds majority.

That ruling from the chair was an obvious abuse of power. It was impossible to say, simply from the volume of voices, whether the “Ayes” outnumbered the “Nays.” To assert that the “Ayes” predominated by a 2-to-1 margin was simply absurd. Quite understandably, many delegates objected to the ruling. So their boos were aimed at Villaraigosa, not at God.

I feel sorry for you because you have pretty contorted ideas about Christians. The trouble with people today is they either forget there is another side to the coin, or they just refuse to look at it because their itching ears are happy with what they think they heard.

Again, you are confused. There are far more groups out there wanting to take God out of our society. It is not just Democrats or just Republicans it is far larger than that, mostly those who are atheist or agnostic. Our society has become more anti-God in these last few years. You have to remember, that was a convention of Democrats, not a convention of Christians, and I did not denounce God, it denounced the method that was used to vote.

The Bible doesn't say to not judge. Why do people twist this around? Surely you know the democrats. stand for immoral acts. Especially the slaughter of Gods children. I am sorry but the democrats of today are no better that the Nazis who slaughtered the Jews. How can you support this????? The other side if the coin? If that side promotes infanticide then I will judge because that is horribly wrong and of the devil.

Are you serious? The bible does say not to judge, but under certain circumstances. What Jesus says is to judge correctly. To say a group of people as a whole stand for immoral acts, as you claim, is a lie in itself. You lied. You know that not ALL of any one group stands for immoral acts, so you just lied. Oh, btw that is an immoral act. What does that make you? A hypocrite. So far as the Democrats slaughtering anyone, please enlighten us on this claim. You are so full of deceit it is hard to read anything you say with any sort of comparability to the truth. Please expound on where this infanticide is taking place. You speak in riddles. Please explain what the heck you are even relating to. Otherwise, you are just a sound gong and making noise about nothing.

Dont say republicans want to take God out. You are just blaming others for what you do. Show me one republican in office who wants to take God out and I will show you someone who is heading out of office fast.

I didn't word that correctly. I didn't mean to make it sound as if Reps. or Dems want to take God out. They don't. Other groups do. I meant other non-party line groups want God out.

The Democratic Party Platform says...

"The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman's decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion."

So again, your party supports infanticide. How can a follower of Christ support this evil. I'm sorry, but if you're a democrat, then you're a horrible person.

So is there a difference between Democrats and Republicans? Sure. The Democrats say one thing ("Save the planet!") and then do another--quietly holding hands behind the scenes with the bastards who make this world a dirtier, meaner place. The Republicans just come right out and give the bastards a corner office in the West Wing. That's the difference.

Let me ask you something... just because your friends do something you don't approve of, do you no longer consider them friends? There is a difference between advocating for somebody's rights verses what you would do for yourself. Not everyone is a Christian, or doing their best to abstain from sin, but that does not make them evil or bad, maybe just ignorant in your eyes. If you are a Christian then your salvation is between you and the Lord, not between others and the Lord. Vote as you will but you can't save babies by denying abortions to secular people. They will instead find worse and more evil ways to get rid of a baby. I don't want that. It is crazy. You can't legislate your religion on others otherwise you are no better than Muslims that use their religion to rape their wives and beat them into submission, or stone someone to death for adultery, or cut off their hand for stealing. Where is your forgiveness? Just be a Christian between you and God and stop forcing others to follow your ways without reason or salvation. The Democratic party happens to have tons of good, Saved Christians who don't approve of abortion and would never had one themselves. It is unfair to label them all the same. Jesus would say you are not judging them correctly. You are being prejudiced. You are not following Jesus' lead. What kind of Christian are you? Show me where Jesus said to label an entire group based on a portion of them.

Democrats will say just about anything to justify their support for gay marriage and child murder. Jesus didn't condemn the prostitute but told her to go and sin no more. It's quite obvious most christian democrats have no problem telling us not to judge not but leave out the part where Jesus says to sin no more. If you continually back a party that's platform supports infanticide then you knowingly refuse to reject sin. What the Nazis did to the Jewish children is no worse than what democrats support today in our country. Murder is murder.

You just can't see what you are saying, can you? Let's examine YOU for a moment. If you practice what you preach, then that would mean YOU DON'T VOTE!! You can't vote because there is not ONE person running that is not a sinner or that doesn't sin. Sin is sin in God's eyes, and he doesn't distinguish one from another. Lying is just as sinful as murder. Unless Jesus is running and you vote, you are a total hypocrite. Republicans approve capital punishment as in execution. Texas Gov. Perry has 'murdered' the most, by YOUR standards. We can go all day and I can show you how every single candidate or person currently holding office has sin or approves of it (by YOUR standard). You have your head stuck somewhere where you can't see. Pull it out, get some fresh air and open your eyes.

Religion aside, murder is wrong. You are morally bankrupt to defend it.

So you must be morally bankrupt because you approve of it by paying your taxes and every time you vote. Murder is defined as the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another. If you support your government by voting, you support it's wars and funding of them. Therefore, you knowingly defend murder. Unless you don't consider war as unlawful. If that is so, then by our laws, abortion is legal based on the supreme court which was appointed by past presidents. So by law, it is not unlawful, which by your agreement makes it NOT murder. It is a sticky wicket when we start tossing around our own definitions of morality. Mind you, I am against abortion. Yes, all murder is wrong. But before you start pointing fingers at others, you need to realize how you, yourself, approve of things you don't like just by participating. And without religion, murder is nothing but your disagreement with ending the life of another life form, even plants and animals. Where do you draw the line? Who made you king of everything to decide where that line belongs? Without religion we are no different than cows. We are just a life form. Souls don't exist, right? So there is no difference between premeditated murder of a human form or a cow, right? Hope you don't eat hamburgers.
