It IS conservative when you compare it to what others teach.

Liberals - allow homosexuality. Christians say no.

Christians dont believe in abortions....liberals do.

Are we on the same planet?

Here is an excerpt from my post earlier in this thread:

The Right-wing has hit on the effective strategy over the past 10 or 15 years of sneaking false stereotypes into the common national dialogue. For example, "elite liberal" to make you think liberals are all latte-sipping, Volvo-driving snots, while conservatives are the "real" people, the heart of America, blah blah blah. This is the BIG LIE they have managed to get people to believe and reinforce in their own minds.

You and other Christians who have the misimpression that Christianity is not a "liberal" philosophy are dead wrong. You have been brainwashed by the Republican propaganda machine. There is nothing wrong with real fiscal conservatism, but that has little to do with the Bush administration's policies. And the current campaign run by McCain has become the most underhanded, nasty, lying, hate-mongering smear campaign in history. Christian, really Christian.

Anyone who supports it is just as guilty as those that do it.

While I don’t encourage or promote abortion as a means of birth control, and would seek to encourage abstinence for unmarried people, contraceptives for couples who don’t want children, and encourage adoption for unwanted children, I believe that if it comes down to having an abortion, this would be better than having a woman , specifically young girls, seek unsafe abortions (which they will probably do anyway if they are determined to not have the child). God bless.

I know, Renriqu02, I was just sharing . God bless.

Obama: [An abortion protester at a campaign event] handed me a pamphlet. "Mr. Obama, I know you're a Christian, with a family of your own. So how can you support murdering babies?"

Quote:
I told him I understood his position but had to disagree with it. I explained my belief that few women made the decision to terminate a pregnancy casually; that any pregnant woman felt the full force of the moral issues involved when making that decision; that I feared a ban on abortion would force women to seek unsafe abortions, as they had once done in this country. I suggested that perhaps we could agree on ways to reduce the number of women who felt the need to have abortions in the first place.
"I will pray for you," the protester said. "I pray that you have a change of heart." Neither my mind nor my heart changed that day, nor did they in the days to come. But that night, before I went to bed, I said a prayer of my own-that I might extend the same presumption of good faith to others that had been extended to me.
Barack Obama on Abortion

They make it worse. You can count on that.

You can count on vastly increased taxes, unless you're a welfare recipient.

A foreign policy that will mirror Jimmy Carter's politics of surrender.

Finally, loss of most freedoms you take for granted.
