Are you asking do all Christians sin? Yes they do, then they repent and ask forgiveness. Do they say they are Christians to try and further a political career? Nope. Do they obey the word by protecting the innocent and the chosen nation of Israel - yes. You might be able to catch a service if you get ready now, depending on your time zone.

The fact that presidential candidates are/should be questioned by religious freaks makes me sick.
So now Rick Warren is a "bigoted religious freak"?
Yeah its much more preferable to hear them questioned from MTV dimwit's about what type of underwear they wear!

His double talk, rambling and half answers to the questions really annoyed me. Quoting the verse from Matthew made my stomach turn. He represents a party and voters who are all about taking every bit of religion out of government, and then he quotes the Bible to push his ideas of socialism. He sure didn't bring up the Bible when asked about abortion or when a baby has rights, he declined (again) to give a straight answer. I don't know if he doesn't have any views of his own, or if they are just too radical to share openly when the world is watching. If he would be willing to use the Bible to justify all of his positions that would be one thing, but he obviously just had a staffer find this one due to the venue last night.

I was nervous for McCain, I wanted to see him do well, but with all of the hype about Obama and his power of pursuasion I didn't know what to expect. I thought McCain was fantastic. I believed his stories and they were actually relevant to the questions being asked, I felt that Obama rambled so much that after a minute or 2 nobody could even remember what the question was. (That was probably his strategy) McCain came across to me as being much more genuine and sincere, stronger, more decisive and more capable as a leader. I supported him going in anyway, but I have a much greater admiration for him now.

I think McCain was more comfortable in the setting because he is a true Christian, not a Christian out of convenience. Obama seemed to need to lay it on a little thick, like he was really trying to convince people of something that just wasn't true. I'm sure if the pastor was screaming hatred to the USA, Obama would have felt more at home and probably would have been more convincing.

Last night wasn't for any of us, we are all decided. I would be curious how/if it had an impact on any undecideds. (Don't anyone on here reply and say you were undecided)


Good post. Even in his altered mental state (drugged?), WonderBoy was true to form, with his double-talk, pandering and lies. At this time in our history and age of terror (the PRIMARY EVIL at this time is external), we need a leader who can stand up for his UNwavering principles, has a strong moral base, and will act decisively in black and white (oh no, how nonPC); not by "nuanced" platitudes and through rose-colored lenses. In other words, we need a REALITY based leader, who can make the right decision at 3 a.m., not "oh, wait, I need more time (a few hours, a few days?) to ponder just what I should do here....".

I loved the McCain being rich is 5 million line the best. Politico did story on it coming back to haunt him. McCain seemed to realize that right after saying it.

If you're calling my posts redundant, I repeat the facts over and over because you all first ignore them, or try to divert the topic, then finally skip away to another thread and post the same lies over again. Boring, yes, I've certainly noticed you all do love the delicious lies far better than the boring truth, see preceding sentence.
Well, shoot, miss congeniality (that's a hoot!), frankly, I don't give a tinker's damn where he went to school, where and/or how he got his money, or what the gift was called - financial air or a scholarship.

Lesee here, now, the OP was, "Who did the best at the warren interviews," was it not? I seem to remember silas777 asking for opinions on that, and on that alone, did he not? As I wrote last night, on my way to the boudoir, I could hardly wait for the wailing and flailing of both sides. I should have mentioned gnashing of teeth and saber-rattling, too.

I'm glad you wrote "you all" about being redundant, cause I was gonna whack you on that one, had you referenced me directly. I'll be the first to admit that I do know some folks will do exactly as you wrote, but include me OUT. You do it, too, so don't attempt to be so "innocent." It ain't me, babe.

Tell you what, mc, you tell me the truth, stark and bare, none of these "delicious lies" as you portray them, I'll read 'em and attempt to comprehend. I don't do gossip well, I don't like it, I don't need it. I write what I mean, and I mean what I write. I attempt to NOT jump into something I know nothing about.

You said McCain was a true christian....he isn't setting a very good example. Or is it OK for christians to sin if they then(and repeatedly) say they're sorry?

Yes, lots of politicians say they're christian to further their career.


I don't care about Israel.


No "service" for me, thanks, rather think for myself.

Isn't it said, that the man was trying to make a point and now the dems (knowing the situation) will take no context before or after and go with it. I can hear it now...OMG did you hear?! John McCain is so out of touch with us worker bee's HE said that you are rich is you have $5 million!!! OMG, poor BO really is more like me!!! OMG!!!

The saddest thing is that if that happens the poor saps will unwittingly be voting for the one that will raise their taxes and make us all poor.

Elitism is a state of mind.... an indoctrinated state of mind. Obamba has made the decision somewhere down the rosy path to become one of them (no doubt due to his Albatross' insistence). He is the Chosen One by the wealthy covert elites, the supreme patsy used to attempt to drive their far-left marxist agendas up the ladder, in the HOPE of becoming "mainstream" in America. But don't think it's going to become THE CHANGE, the reality, for them this time around. The BigBoys will have to wait and cower in the shadows some more, the country just not yet ripe for the takeover.

Sorry, that's all just sick.

Who are these BigBoys? How Big can they be if they cower (naturally, "in the shadows"?)
