Last thing we need is the democrats explanation of the bible. Jesus had sympathy for the poor and so do Republicans.We are just not a bunch of socialist who think being a deadbeat is a way of life. You seem to overlook a verse or to yourself.
2Th_3:10 For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat.
Well, I hate to break it to you, but this is a free country and the people of the country have faith in a lot of things. You see, we Democrats take freedom of religion very seriously and are okay if other citizens don't believe like we do. Plus, we don't need our party telling us how to believe or what to believe in. I guess the Republicans do because they are so weak spiritually or something. I honestly don't get that. Now, people like you always pull that one little scripture out to support your point but you are ignoring countless ones that counter it including ones in Christ's own words. By the way, do you think Romney is a Christian?

Jesus said a lot about divorce but I know plenty of Republicans who are divorced. Reagan was divorced. I don't know why people pick on the gays when divorce is just as bad according to the Bible.
Can't you democrats explain anything from the bible accurately? Jesus also said there are some cases where divorce is allowed. Being a queer is never all right in the bible , no where is that allowed. Besides that the Republicans do not non-biblical divorce a part of their platform. The democrats make being gay okay which is 180 degrees out of sync with what the bible teaches and any real Christian would not back any party that had that type of platform. Gay marriage Jesus did not advocate , accept , or acknowledge in any way. The reason maybe they stoned the perverts back then and it just wasn't quite as popular with the Hollywood crowd.

That is such a funny statement considering what happened at the convention. Listen to the vote, The party plainly got their wishes over ridden by the party for political reasons. You wimps let the party pull your chain and do as they will. The Republican delegates make the decisions at their convention.

You don't even know how the Republicans set their own convention up, do you? Ron Paul's delegates ring a bell? Did they even report about that on Fox News? All us Democrats will pray for your pitiful self.

The Republican National Convention Rules Committee voted 63-38 to approve a new rule allowing granting the Republican National Committee — and Mitt Romney — sweeping new powers to amend the governing document of the GOP.

The move came at the encouragement of Mitt Romney supporters on the committee, including Romney’s top lawyer Ben Ginsberg, who stressed that it would grant “flexibility” to Romney and the committee to adapt to changing political environments. The rule allows the RNC to amend the party’s rules without a vote by the full Republican National Convention. And it offers the Republican Establishment a new tool to keep at by Tea Party initiatives that threaten to embarrass or contradict party leadership and stray from a planned message.

Wow, Oxymoron, you are way off base, you're defending your position as a republican, because democrats (in your opinion) can't be christians.. But mormons are???? Wow!!!! I thought to be a christian, you had to believe that Jesus Christ was God, part of a holy trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit..... Mormons don't believe that Jesus Is God..... Dont' that kinda take away from the Christian aspect of it....

Oh, and by the way, The only time it is O.K. to get a divorce is because of adultery....... But that's another debate... But if we can't explain the bible accurately as you say, you should at least know that in only one case it is o.k. to get divorced, would you say that accurately describes the bible.....

Do you believe that Jesus is God?????

That's a realy Christian way of saying something..... Seems like when the republicans start slipping around loseing a debate they always start name calling.. I don't think Jesus Stoned anyone, if I am accurate, I believe Jesus stopped the woman from getting stoned.... So I don't think was it not only not popular with the Hollywood Crowd, I think it wasn't very popular with Jesus....

Homosexuality was pretty common in the ancient world, especially among the Greeks and Romans. You would think if it had been that big of a deal to Jesus he would have talked about it. He didn't.

There's no problem at all with Democrats being Christian. The REAL question is, "How in the world can a republican POSSIBLY be a Christian".
There is absolutely nothing about the republican party that is even remotely similar to Christianity. In fact, they're even worse than non-Chistians, they are nothing but hypocrites and blasphemers. They TALK about God, but act in total opposition. They do exactly the opposite of what God tells us to do.
If Christ was born in these days instead of 2000 years ago, the republicans would be the ones shouting "CRUCIFY HIM!!!". They are nothing but hypocrites. The pharisees have nothing over on them.

Homosexuality isn't addressed at all in the Bible. There are passages that were translated and altered to make it seem like it was, but it wasn't. If you actually do any research at all or look at the original text in the original language, it's very, very clear.
However, there are a lot of people who have never actually read the Bible, not even the poor translations, yet they claim they have and the go on and on about what it says because some little hick preacher told them it said something. Chances are the little hick preacher didn't read it either, somebody else told him.
Republicans aren't Christian and they aren't capable of being Christians due to their actions and basic lack of true values.

Several Christian denominations in the Pentecostal, Baptist, catholic, and Church of Christ movements (some not all) believe other churches are not Christians. I base my definition of what a Christian is upon the believing or not believing that Jesus is the Son of God. The Mormons in the Articles of Faith state that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe they are wrong about the Book of Mormon being scripture. The Catholics believe some books are scripture that are not in the Protestant bible as do the Orthodox churches. I still consider those Christians as well.

They believe that Jesus is result of physical sex between a human who received his godship (not an eternal god) and Mary the mother of Jesus. They do not believe in the trinity (the father,son and the holy ghost being the same and also separate), and they believe that humans can obtain godship and be god's of their own planets. Is this christian?

You don't know what you are talking about. The very first article of their "ARTICLES OF FAITH" is this:
1.We believe in God, the Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.

There are a lot of false teaching about what they believe and it is put out mainly by denominations claiming to be Christian. You need to investigate the truth for yourself.

You're the one that doesn't know what you're talking about. Yes, they believe in the the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, but they do not believe in the concept of the Trinity in the way traditional Christians do.

From mormonchurch.com which is a website by Mormons:

Do Mormons believe in the Trinity?
Mormons most commonly use the term “Godhead” to refer to the Trinity. The first article of faith for the Latter-day Saints reads:“We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.” Latter-day Saints believe God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost are one in will and purpose but are not literally the same being or substance, as conceptions of the Holy Trinity commonly imply.
