When it comes to Republicans, it seems many of them suffer from cognitive dissonance.

You see, cognitive dissonance is a person’s brain trying to decipher two contradicting realities. An example of this is often seen in an abusive relationship. Reality obviously shows abuse, yet the person being abused often creates some alternate form of reality where abuse equates to love.

Often their brain will then develop excuses for such action. It’s their fault or the abuser has their reasons for the abuse. The reality is their brain simply cannot accept two different realities that contradict, so it creates another.

This is never more prevalent than when it comes to Republicans and Christianity. Their “Christian faith” is a foundation for which their entire political party is based, yet their entire economic ideology contradicts the teachings of Jesus Christ—you know, that key figure in Christianity.
Their entire economic policy states that we need to give those who have the most more and the rest of us will benefit from their windfall of new riches.
Let that sink in for a second…

An economic policy based upon this notion: If we feed greed, it will then benefit the rest of society.

When has greed ever benefited a society?

Hey liberal, just read the Bible.

While the Bible does address homosexuality, it does not explicitly mention gay marriage/same-sex marriage. It is clear, however, that the Bible condemns homosexuality as an immoral and unnatural sin. Leviticus 18:22 identifies homosexual sex as an abomination, a detestable sin. Romans 1:26-27 declares homosexual desires and actions to be shameful, unnatural, lustful, and indecent. First Corinthians 6:9 states that homosexuals are unrighteous and will not inherit the kingdom of God. Since both homosexual desires and actions are condemned in the Bible, it is clear that homosexuals “marrying” is not God’s will, and would be, in fact, sinful.

Whenever the Bible mentions marriage, it is between a male and a female. The first mention of marriage, Genesis 2:24, describes it as a man leaving his parents and being united to his wife. In passages that contain instructions regarding marriage, such as 1 Corinthians 7:2-16 and Ephesians 5:23-33, the Bible clearly identifies marriage as being between a man and a woman. Biblically speaking, marriage is the lifetime union of a man and a woman, primarily for the purpose of building a family and providing a stable environment for that family.

Christianity was invented long before there were republicans and democrats. Giving more to those most wealthy also greatly pre-dates our current political situation. It would seem this is human nature regardless of your political, religious, community or familial affiliations.

correct ... Jesus would care much less about politics than some on here seem to think.
If you recal Jesus said my kingdom is not of this world.

Liberal Hypocrites elected Obama because he was going to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and close Gitmo, but as long as they get gay marriage and abortion they don't really care what Obama does.

Remember, no matter who you are, if you criticize Obama, his policies, or his presidency, you are likely to be deemed racist.

I blame the Government Schools.

Take a look at yer Basic Victim Demokrat in Amerika Today.

The Glass Ceiling, The "Rich", the "Wealthy", the "Corporation", "White Privilege", "Economic Justice", "Economic Fairness", "Tax the Rich"....Pick yer own Victim Language, and you will find a conglomeration of Official Victims spewing their ignorance as the Good Sheeple they are.

A couple of secrets to share with you Sheeple.

1% of the people in the world are what YOU call rich. Most of them in Amerika are Sugar Teat Demokrats living of the hard work of their ancestors.

. Your neighbor is not rich. stop "Coveting" what is his (And Demokrat Party of Amerika, stop feeding this Kool Aid to your Sheeple for their Votes. Demokrats, Look up "Covet" in your neighbors Bible)

. Their is a Glass Ceiling for White Males in Amerika too.

. Wealthy is a state of Mind, and an issue of what a person "Values", not the number of Dollars a person has kept after the Government Confiscates 1/2 of what they worked for.

. Economic Justice is not using the Collective Mob to steal from their Fellow Amerikans to redistribute based on "Political Power" (Demokrats Google Political vs Government. Hint; they are not the same thing)

God is not a Political Guy, and Jesus was killed by the Government to satisfy the "Political" desires of the Mob of the Day.

Buy a clue!

The Demokrat Politicians (and Paid Propagandists in the Demokrat Media) are not "Standing Behind" The President of the United States as he confronts an Awful Evil in the World in Syria......They are backing King Barry the Black Man, otherwise he would be shown once and for all to be the worst President in American History......and he is Black, so keeping the Cover-up of his High Crimes and Misdemeanors is a must.

Let this lesson be taught.

This worst period in American History is a direct result of the Feminist's Invention of Victimhood and Political Correctness as the Legal Basis for Extra Constitutional Rights which MUST be afforded to Official Victim Groups.

This diseases spread though Government Schools like Shaat through a Goose. Because of the creation of the Indoctrinated who are to ignorant to know truth, many HAD TO VOTE for Barry Soetoro.....because he is Black.

If there is ONE reason to end EEOC, Affirmative Action, and the 100's of other Official Victims Rights Programs, Barry Soetoro and his utter incompetence is that reason.
