Clearly "YOU" are on some kind of liberal mission, to support "CHANGE". Doing what it is "THAT" you do.

Both have seen better days. All churches should stay out of politics and people's business. So should communists. The Church should sit quietly and help the people that want help and guidence from it and leave the rest alone. Same goes for the communists. Both the church and communists should be separated from government.
"THEY" are seprated, by the U.S. Constitution.(reference sepration of church and state).

The Communists, Socalists, Marxis, Dictators all are employed by the U.S. Government. Even the elected ones !

Christ would say to pray for those individuals who are of the culture of death. Another thing, Christ wasn't nice to evil----ever. Christ would have expelled the person who promoted evil. Christ would not be nice to something as intrinsically evil as abortion , abortion rights. I would imagine He would have told the person that the person is a Temple,the Image of God and how wrong it is for the speaker to be for destroying the Temple, the Image of God and the creation of God. Don't be a fool, there is a devil and you are doing exactly what the devil wants, telling people he doesn't exist, and promoting the culture of death.

another thing, Christ would have run the demons out of the person promoting abortion, therefore he wouldn't need to speak about abortion rights. He expelled several demons out of his followers.

Right to almost to the end you were sounding like a prolife.. Then you went and slipped in to a fantasy world where men tell women what they will do with their bodies and reproduction..

Too Bad.. You almost sounded sensible.

Communism is an ideology. So yea the communists are in fact part of a political party.

Knutter I can only conclude that you really must have lost it at this point.

Your jesus said nothing on abortion. In fact you and other christians take such verses out of context and so transparently so. That you only make yourself look even more of a wingnut when you post the above...

There is a reason for "THAT" which "YOU" refer. The space between sender and reviver breaks down communications even in person. "YOU just arn't getting "IT"." but I have touched your subcounsis mind. How does it feel ?

Again You never rattled my cage you little fool.. All you did was prove that you are willing to violate the topix TOS.. What happens after that is up to TOpix.. But carry on playing the fool.
