Completely false and you know it. Its a stereotype that Liberals "think' Christians are doing and you just perpetuate it.
I personally don't share the word of Jesus with anyone. The true meaning of spreading the word of Christ is to share with people who don't know about him that he is your savior and giving them the opportunity to learn about him. Everyone in America has heard of Jesus by now, its between you and him if you accept him as your savior. Not my business. I do support financially as well as spiritually, missions to spread the word of Jesus in parts of the world where they've never heard of him. Giving them the chance to accept Jesus or not. If they choose not to, that between them and God.
So no, Its not ALL supposedly devout Christians yearning to be their brother's keeper. Because you are not my brother. We might have the same father, but we don't know each other. But that's your choice, not mine or other Christians.

Actually, the presence of Christ fills the hole that all people have in their hearts. "Keeping our brothers" is not a yearning, it's a command. It's done to please our Savior. I'm sure it must be terrible to have people in your life that are willing to help you if you need it.-
In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.
Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
and clever in their own sight.

You may have experienced what you firmly believe to be evidence of God or evidence of God's will in action, but that, in and of itself, is not evidence of anything other than your willingness to believe.
I've known some brilliant people who were very religious. Very committed, and their religious teachings figured into every major decision they made. No, I don't "get it" yet, just like you.
However, I don't simply assume my powers of logic are above anyone who's deeply religious. I think it's way more complex than that.
All I'm saying is, don't develop some DU'ish attitude toward the possibility of life altering faith. I've never met a person who regretted finding. You never know.Ubi Dubium Ibi Libertas
