Well, Al, it sounds to me like you already have your mind made up about what answer you want to get to this question. Why, therefore, did you even bother to ask it?

Charlie, Amen! When Jesus said He didn't come to bring peace but a sword , He wasn't talking about "Democrat/Republican", No, He was talking about [SEPARATING] Truth and Deceit, the Word is the sword that separates the two, true from false, wheat from tares(weeds), and light from dark. God expects His people to do the same using His Truth/Word, too little of that is going on in most churches,the reason why many Christians are Apostate. (Revelation 2:23a). God Bless!

Politics is religion for some people. They live and breathe politics. It gives them an identity. They can join this or that political organization, blow and crow and carry on. They give more honor to their party than they do Jesus Christ. They use their party to cause division and strife. It's not Christianity, it's politics.
---Charlie on 1/13/07


I stay away from ministers who speak too much about politics, for example, Democrat this, Republican that (almost to the point of being obsessed with it )in their services, there is just something not right about that, and it feeds on that spirit of fanaticism on certain social ills/issues. There's nothing wrong about making a comment about a topic, but not a whole sermon,it's just "out of line", in regard to following the lead of the Holy Spirit. God Bless!

What is your question? I am a black, female christian. My role is whatever God says is for me.I did not know there was a role for Christian women. We are all one in Christ Jesus.Read Galations 3:28. No one dictates a role for me or women but our God. That's it.

Hi; I agree with Madison on just about everything, including this one! :) Ya know, it's sad that when a Christian asks about someone's qualifications, it usually always comes down to abortion, like there are no other evils in the world?! For proof, take one look at our anti-abortion President--my cousin lost a brother because of him!

Susie, I was explaining why I am a Democrat and vote for liberal politicians. You seemed surprised that I, as a Christian, would receive Hillary Clinton's newsletters. I do not believe it is right to force poor women to bring babies into the world and not provide for those children. I work in an inner city school, and I am also a social worker, so I am well aware of the issues at hand.

I know a lot of African American evangelicals who are Democrats and have been for generations. They feel Democrats have been most sympathetic to their unique place in America. I understand that, at one point in history, most were Republicans who gradually changed parties as Democrats took on more causes and issues pertinent to their needs and that some are now gradually shifting back to the Republican party. Still, a large amount remain Democrats and faithful Christians at the same time.

Madison...I believe the Bible when it says that John the Baptist leapt in his mother's womb when Mary visited while pregnant with Jesus. That's proof enough for me that an unborn child is a person. It's not just some useless waste of time that should be torn from the mother's womb for convenience sake. I am not for banning abortion entirely, only abortion for birth control sake. If a woman has a medical problem it should be her decision privately with her doctor. Abortion mills should be closed.
---Susie on 1/9/07


As far as funding for poor mothers and their children, what about the poor fathers? I believe in giving a helping hand instead of a handout. The only way this country will ever turn around the condition of it's poorest citizens is through education and training. As a product of the welfare system in this country, I know it can be done. People need to start being responsible for their actions instead of blaming their circumstances on everyone else.
---Susie on 1/9/07




Susie: There are many who do not believe that life begins at conception, including Christians. There are others, like me, who find it sad that the conservatives would outlaw abortion, but not fund programs to feed the poor children who are born into poverty, much less house them.

I am a liberal social worker, and I find the social welfare situation for poor women and children deplorable. That is why I am a Democrat, and if Hillary runs, I will vote for her for president.

You can lead a democrat to water and they will get a law passed saying they don't have to drink.
---exzucuh on 1/8/07


Isn't it enough to know that Hillary is for killing unborn babies?
---Susie on 1/8/07


Susie, I get a lot of Democratic newsletters because I am a Democrat and I want to be informed about my party's voting and stands on the issues.

Why not?
---Madison1101 on 1/8/07


Why would a Christian want to get Hillary's newsletter?
---Susie on 1/8/07


Susie, I receive Hillary Clinton's e-mails almost daily. She does not think she is the most powerful woman in the country. She is not the egomaniac you seem to think she is.

LOL! I know the constitution. I was talking about the fact the Hillary thinks she is the most powerful woman in this country!
---Susie on 1/6/07


** I find it humorous that Pelosi commented that she is the most powerful woman in America. Wonder what Hillary thought of that???**

Well, since according to law, the Speaker of the House is second in line for the Presidency, it would be reasonable to say that Nancy Pelosi is the most powerful woman under the Constitution.
---Jack on 1/6/07


Susie, Check your Constitution. The Speaker of the House is the next in line for the presidency, should the President be indisposed, and there be no Vice President. She could, in effect, become president, should there be no Vice President to replace the President. So, yes, she is the most powerful woman in the country. Hillary is one, of several women senators.

Mary, I think you are quoting Hillary Clinton and how she feels about women. By the way, Hillary Clinton is VERY liberal.
---Al on 1/5/07


Al: do you mean she should be home baking cookies in order to be a role model for Christian women? Or maybe I misunderstood; feel free to correct me if I'm wrong; Mary
---Mary on 1/4/07


I have had a few good role models over the years. None of them were politicians!
---Susie on 1/4/07


Hard to say Al. Has she ever put herself out as a role model for Christian women?

Are YOU a role model for Christian men?

**Is Ms. Pelosi trying to be a role model for Christian women?**

Something tells me that Ms. Pelosi, if asked, would say that she has her hands full already trying to be Speaker of the House, without taking on anything else.
---Jack on 1/4/07


Mrs. Pelosi is in a position that has never been held by a woman. she is now the most important woman in Washigton. She understands that she is now a role model for "EVERY" woman who has a dream of being the best they can be, and addressed that point immediately after repeating the oath for office today. Mrs Pelosi went so far as to call the commonly known glass ceiling, the marble ceiling stating it has now been broken. Now the work begins.
---lynet on 1/4/07


LOL! Not everybody who lives in California is a liberal. Is Ms. Pelosi trying to be a role model for Christian women?
