As the churches have repeatedly said you cannot be a Democrat, and believe their ideas and still try to say you are a Christian.

It is only possible in your own minds. But God knows, so vote for the Democrats and find yourself explaining to God why.

The entire Democratic party has placed themselves on a slow boat to hell. So change your ways, or burn baby burn.

I have even heard of churches asking the congregation if they are Democrat and if so to please vacate the premises so as not to bring undue influence to the decent people.
You are crazy

My question is how can you consider yourself a Christian and vote Republican? The Republicans signed the Roe vs. Wade Bill into law. So now explain yourself!

To each his own but I strongly suspect we will all do well to get thru the pearly gate. I have worked my entire life, attended church reguarly, volunteered both here and abroad in Christian work and love the Lord. Thank goodness he will be the judge of this democrats soul.

According to mormon doctrine, none of you "Christians" are going to get through the "pearly gates" anyway.

I was answered that I must join none of them (Christian Churches), for they were all wrong...that all their creeds were an abomination in His sight" (Joseph Smith History 1:19).

"...orthodox Christian views of God are Pagan rather than Christian." (Mormon Doctrine of Deity by B.H. Roberts, p.116)

"...the God whom the 'Christians' worship is a being of their own creation..." (Apostle Charles W. Penrose, JD 23:243)

"The Christian world, so called, are heathens as to their knowledge of the salvation of God." (Brigham Young, JD 8:171)

"We may very properly say that the sectarian world do not know anything correctly, so far as pertains to salvation. Ask them where heaven is?- where they are going to when they die?-where Paradise is!-and there is not a priest in the world that can answer your questions. Ask them what kind of a being our Heavenly Father is, and they cannot tell you so much as Balaam's ass told him. They are more ignorant than children." (Brigham Young, JD 5:229).

"The Christian world, I discovered, was like the captain and crew of a vessel on the ocean without a compass, and tossed to and fro whithersoever the wind listed to blow them. When the light came to me, I saw that all the so-called Christian world was grovelling in darkness." (Brigham Young, JD 5:73).

"What! Are Christians ignorant? Yes, as ignorant of the things of God as the brute best." (John Taylor, JD 13:225)

"What does the Christian world know about God? Nothing...Why so far as the things of God are concerned, they are the veriest fools; they know neither God nor the things of God." (John Taylor, JI) 13:225)

"Believers in the doctrines of modern Christendom will reap damnation to their souls (Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, p.177)

"I have learned for myself that Presbyterianism is not true." (Joseph Smith, DHC 1:6)

"...brother Heber C. Kimball was beset by a number of Baptist priests who had been attending a conference. He read them all down out of the New Testament....With regard to true theology, a more ignorant people never lived than the present so-called Christian world." (Brigham Young, JD 8:199).

"...all other churches are entirely destitute of all authority from God; and any person who recieves baptism or the Lord's supper from their hands will highly offend God, for he looks upon them as the most corrupt people." (Orson Pratt, The Seer, pg. 255)

"...the great apostate church as the anti-christ...This great antichrist...is the church of the devil." (Apostle Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine p.40)

"Brother Taylor has just said that the religions of the day were hatched in hell. The eggs were laid in hell, hatched on its borders, and then kicked on to the earth." (Brigham Young, JD 6:176)

"Evil spirits control much of the so-called religious worship in the world; for instance, the great creeds of Christendom were formulated so as to conform to their whispered promptings." (Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, p.246)

"You may hear the divines of the day extol the character of the Saviour, undertake to exhibit his true character before the people, and give an account of his origin...I have frequently thought of mules, which you know are half horse and half ass, when reflecting upon the representations made by those divines. I have heard sectarian priests undertake to tell the character of the Son of God, and they make him half of one species and half of another, and I could not avoid thinking at once of the mule, which is the most hateful creature that ever was made, I believe. You will excuse me, but I have thus thought many a time" (Journal of Discourses 4:217).

I agree. Proverbs 24:11,12 (KJV)
11 If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;12 If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?
Democrats, including those who attend church will one day have to explain why they were determined to enable the abortionists. I'm sure they will deny knowing what they were doing but we can see from the holy scriptures above that God will know they were aware but voted demoncrat for supposed financial gain.
Demoncrats also defend homosexuality which God calls an abomination.
Demoncrats also reward slothfulness while the Bible declares that we are NOT to feed those who WON'T work but are to help those who are sick, old, or otherwise >>>unable<<< to fend for themselves.
Yes, it seems that demoncrats despise everything that God loves and that they love everything that God hates. I'm certain that since they seem to daily awaken and shake their fist at God that there is no chance they are born again Christians.

I have read the bible, more than once in my time, and not one verse in it says a damn anything about politics. If you take away gay marriage and abortion, which is your 2 biggest right wing extremist concerns, there will still be gay people, you will still see them in restaurants and in stores and people will still find a way to handle an unwanted pregnancy. You people act like a president is a man that stands on a stage and barks out orders to be carried out, do you think if Romney is elected it will be the end of these 2 issues, no it will not. Do you not remember gay marriage happening while your beloved GW was in office? I think it would be a fair assumption to say that there has been more innocent lives taken off this earth due to the war that has been going on for over 10 years than there has been abortions in KY, again brought on by your alls beloved savior. I promise you this, there will not be one politician in the united states with a high probability of going to heaven anyway, I can't think of one that hasn't broken all of the ten commandments.

No problem. People see slick Mitt smiling on TV looking like your typical "conservative christian" candidate and they have absolutely no idea how radically different his religious views are with their own. They are equally, if not MORE, radically different than any middle eastern religion and borderline as off kilter as that of the scientologists. People are blinded by their hatred for one part or the other and they throw the relion thing in there having no idea that it makes them look stupid because they CLEARLY haven't looked into it. I've said it time and time again, if you're basing your pick on the religion thing, you are misinformed and voting for one (if you REALLY believe Obama is a muslim) is just as bad as the other.

This topic is not about Mitt and whatever religion he is, so please try not to confuse the already confused people. The OP is trying to save souls as it is well known that Democrats will go to hell for being against God.

Now allow me to reiterate that. If you are a Democrat, there is a major chance that you will be burning in hell. So look at your kids and try to explain why mommy and daddy are fools and will not be in Heaven with the decent folks, but will be in hell because they chose to lives against the views God gave us.

So if you die and find yourself in hell, at least you were warned.

I can assure you at some point, someday when it is too late, you will regret following blindly the Democratic party.

u r so full of shi$&@. do u really think there r no gay repubs? do u really think your god approves of u sitting in judgment of others? how can u be a repub, the very epitome of greed and power, and think u represent a kind and generous god. I'm a straight white grandfather of seven and would vote independent if possible, but IMO Obama is the lesser of 2 evils

Doesn't look like anyone is trying to confuse anyone. He posted direct quote from mormon leaders who have publicly talked down to your "religion" and this is their belief. So if you vote one in, you're just as guilty and I suppose "hell bound" as anyone else. Not anything confusing about it. You're just as guilty.

The offensive tone with which you write and the air of superiority you present as an authority who speaks for God is exactly why many have left your party. How very sad that there is anyone that could present these views as anything but their personal opinion and interpretation. My opinion is that we will all be well served to do what WE can to get ourselves in the good graces of God. I would doubt any of us has the ability to get another person there.

If you believe as you say why don't you try more effective less offensive ways of convincing others?
Tuesday will tell the story.

The Bible also refers to hypocrites. Tell me how you can get on here and blame a party for something that the Republicans signed into law in 1973. Secondly as far as homosexuals go you can't cast stone there whenever the Republicans have gays sitting in the Senate that they have elected!

You're an idiot. The Supreme Court ruled in 1973 that abortion was legal. You should take time to research what your Mormon candidate thinks of Christians, they believe Christians are wrong. They follow a false prophet Joe Smith and so on and on. And is even one of your parties main men Dick Cheney's daughter is homosexual. But again you 're in the bubble and nothing can penetrate the bubble for idiots like you!

If all you can think of to vote for someone is religion, you people have serious issues. You should be thinking of the bigger picture and the problems that face our country. Massive debts, growing government intrusion, etc. if religion is the only reason you are voting for a person, I can see why this country has become what it has.

the entire thread was about religion but fine. I'll give other reasons I don't care for repubs. they have said they would approve mo less than ten pieces of legislation if the Bush tax breaks for the rich were extended. It seems their only priority is those breaks and to he'll with the rest of us

I am a person who tries to vote for the lessor of 2 evils. I will never vote for a person who is only for the wealthy just because I think he has better morals because he doesnt to me both men r married so they obviously both believe in marriage and family also ive never heard Obama say I approve gay marriage. I think Romney is using religeon to gather in the Christians sorry but he wont gather in me. Please people dont vote because you think he is a God fearing man. Please consider all I feel sorry for whoever gets the job personally I would rather have Bill Clinton back. Think everyone should pray for whoever gets the job and dont critisize when they dont get the job done fast enough.
