American Evangelicals. I have a question for you.
If a Republican were to become the President in January, what would you expect him to do as far as your religious beliefs are concerned?
Stating that a President is a Christian is meaningless.
The Supreme Court said in '73 that abortion was legal.
The Supreme Court last year said that same sex marriage was legal.
Those things aren't going to change.

A Christian President has as much power to accomplish things as would a Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, or atheist President.
What do you think is going to change?
The U.S. is a secular nation. It is NOT a monotheistic nation.

I guess I just don't understand why a candidate HAS to state that he or she is a Christian when his or her religious beliefs are completely irrelevant to the job.
It's as important as saying that a President knows how to play chess, pool, or Crazy 8's. So what.

Follow the laws in place.


Be an example to lead others to Christ on their own volition.


It's not a dictatorship where one person has control over laws and regulations with the swipe of a pen.


Maybe they say they are a Christian to get the voting block. OR - maybe they are simply answering an inquiry given to them.


You do not have to be a Christian to be against abortion, or be against same sex marriage. Anyone is free to be against those actions.

Because the majority rule.


I never wanted the schools to force Christmas and Easter down my kid's throat but they did because the majority rules and if the majority want a Christian, then they want to hear who is Christian.

As JFK said, I WILL NOT GOVERN BY MY RELIGION...

Make it so...

Unless the evangelicals are willing to be governed by a Muslim--Hindu--Buddhist--Wicca--

We already know the evangelical is willing t be governed by a Mormon..so maybe a Socialistic Jew is not that far fetched.

Wasn't Christ a socialist Jew?

Or in favour of them.

We aint waitin on a Democracy but a Theocracy.


Maybe I will be the next President or ruler over the lands South and West of Mississippi when the rule is doled out.


Then shall no Gentile pass through my lands.

They're tunnel-visioned and their perspective is consequently extremely limited.

I want a president who believes this.

Psalm 111:10

10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
all who follow his precepts have good understanding.
To him belongs eternal praise.

How do you see this affecting what he is allowed to DO as President, jimmie?? What he can DO is governed by the Constitution, NOT God.
