I almost have to laugh at this. It so represents how liberals think and how they try to use Christianity against believers thinking they will get somewhere. And all the while their words and actions scream that they are athiests or at the very least leftists.

How 'bout if we write the Repug legislators, and say we're praying for them to see Jesus' way.
Lets write them and say a whole bunch of us pro-public-option/pro-single-payer/pro-healthcare-reform folks are praying for them to have their hearts changed, so that they follow the teachings of Jesus and find a way to take care of the least of our brethren.

My Congressman (who was so scared of interacting with the public that he held his last town hall meeting by TELEPHONE!) is a serious neo-con holy roller. I think he needs to hear that I'm praying for him to follow the example of Jesus, and for him to stop being tempted by Satan.

2. I had LOTS of fun skewering my Rep.......
.... over his lack of a Christian attitude when he got on MSNBC and said that health care was a privilege and not a right.

.... and that I was PRAYING that the next Gov. of TN (he's running) was someone who exemplified the fundamental tenants of Christianity that his constituents hold dear.

Hit 'em where it hurts.

3. I like this idea
I write my elected officials often and I think I will give this a try and see what response it gets.

Thanks! Well guys, either your senators etc. are not going to be real Christians in which case they are not going to care what you have to say about "your religion"; or else they will be Christians and will be secure in their faith and what they believe about public policy as it relates to their faith. If the later they aren't going to change based simply on what you say-expecially since it's clear that you are liberals attempting to use "religion" for your own purposes. (Just like Obama.)



And they think they are so cute trying to play gotcha with believers.

Most of those congresscritters who are afraid to interact with the public are DEMOCRATS.

They want free health care but reading what many of them write, they don't have the list bit of interest in caring for their own health. As in all things they want do all the things that are unhealthy for them and then get someone else to fix them when they start breaking down.

Moonbats have never researched other people ( let alone how they think), and they think they can fool someone with info from stereotypes.

This will only blow up in their face.

A word for anyone for anyone from DU who is peeking in; the idea was for you to give, not the state.

Reminds me of one of Saul Alinsky's "rules for radicals".

4. "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.

4. "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.

The thing is, the rules they "make them live up to" are the rules as the liberals interpret and define them, not the truth of the "rules".

So for instance they will take things out of context from the bible and they will assert that their way is the only right way and then pronounce judgement on their "enemies', conservative Christians.

If they ever bothered to read even the New Testament, they'd kick themselves for exposing their overwhelming ignorance to everyone.

Threads like that are the reason why, out of all of the MANY topics that the DUmmies don't know crap about and have no business whatsoever talking about, Christian doctrine/ theology is towards the top of the list.
They, like Obama and most other Commies, attempt to pull off the #1 favorite manipulative Communist debating strategy: Deliberately trying to equate forced wealth redistribution with individual acts of willful generosity. They use that so if anyone dares disagree with their insane economic policies, they can accuse that person of being a horrible, greedy monster who hates the poor, and doesn't want to do anything to help the needy. The DUmmies here, as they have done in other threads, add to this concept by perverting Scripture to try and make it seem like those who do not favor Communistic policies are disobeying Jesus through their actions (When the DUmmies themselves have NO room to talk in that area).

It doesn't work for Wilbur. He could read it all day and the truth would not soak in!

When I hear the "Jesus tells us to take care of..." argument, I let them know that Jesus was saying this to INDIVIDUALS not to GOVERNMENTS. He is telling them them they have a personal responsibility and not to sit back and let someone else do it for them. They dont like hearing that because there is no comeback to it.

One of the reasons I no longer post at DU often is because they are such hypocrits on this issue. They feel if they get the government to do charity for them, they have no personal responsibility of their own to act or share on other people's behalf.

Or, they think that going to war protests equates helping people, and that if you don't go to them, you aren't making a difference, etc. That's what they think gives them liberal credentials. I got accused of living in an ivory tower, and obviously, that poster didn't know what I did for a living. I told him that I've seen things that would make his toes curl up and haunt his nightmares forever.

My belief, whether you are a liberal or conservative christian, is that Jesus told us we were supposed to be a light in this world, and not to hide our light under a bushel. We are to shine it in the darkest places of the world, which generally don't include peace rallies where bottled water and snacks are sold by vendors to the protestors.

Refresh my memory, it's been maybe 16 hours since I cracked open a bible: where is the part where Christ tells the people to force their elected officials to tax them enough to offer free health care to the poor?

:rolleyes:
