Trish, you keep using the term borderline personality disorder incorrectly. Knowing what you believe and defending it is not borderline personality disorder. Seconldy, I'm sure there are budget cuts that could be made everywhere in our government. However, etitlement and welfare/social programs are the largest consumers of taxpayer money and the most abused and unnecissary. So it should be reformed first. You were the one who said you were concerned with poor children. If you really are, then you're not helping them by voting democrat. You're only keeping them poorer longer.
---Jed on 3/29/12

Jed: You definitely have that 'All or nothing splitting going on.' You really need to have a psych eval done to see if you have any borderline tendencies going on.

My first two semesters in grad school required in depth study of poverty going back to Elizabethan England. The needs of the poor cannot be met by private charities.

The current TANF program has its flaws, but they are neither party's fault.

As usual, you bring up a totally separate issue as a cop out for your stand. I could say the same thing about the Defense budget wasting tons of money, or tax breaks for the oil companies.

You still haven't addressed the plight of urban education and funding cuts there, by the Republicans.

While I do not know about bi-polar disorder, I DO know that clinical depression is a PHYSICAL disease that can be managed with proper meds.

---Cluny on 3/29/12

Trish, again, if you really want to help poor kids, then stop voting for democrats that waste good taxpayer dollars on worthless environmental programs and social programs that claim to help the needy but really do not. If there's anything welfare has taught us, it's that people can much better help the less fortunate themselves with their own money than the government can. You support politicians who want to waste every dollar on worthless lazy bumbs and keep it from going to the truly needy people. Shame on you for not caring about the poor children.

While not in a position to judge if a person is a Christian or not, the Bible does point out that, "our walk should match our talk". While President Obama may talk about being a Christian, I have never seen his "walk." James 2:17-19 (NASB77)
17 Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself.
18 But someone may well say, "You have faith, and I have works, show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works."

Also, only 15 states allow Medicaid funding to go toward abortion. That means 35 states, or 70% of the states deny Medicaid coverage for abortions.

Shira: You obviously have never known the pain that someone with bipolar disorder suffers. My Mother is bipolar, and her depressions were so bad, she would stay in her bedroom for weeks, and only go to the hospital after being coaxed by my Dad and her psychiatrist. While in the hospital, they had to give her Electro-Convulsive Therapy, otherwise known as Shock Therapy, multiple times. Her illness had her severely handicapped and incapable of working. She was hospitalized a lot throughout my childhood.

Bipolar disorder is not something you can turn on and off. It's organic.

I suggest you learn about serious mental illnesses and show some compassion for those who suffer.
---Trish on 3/29/12

Did you know that abortions are only 3% of the services offered by Planned Parenthood. Furthermore, of the federal money that is given to Planned Parenthood, they are forbidden to have any of that funding go toward their abortion services. The money is to be used to provide needy women with reproductive health care.
---Trish on 3/29/12


You said: To support a "woman's right to choose" IS the same as advocating Abortion!.

No, it is not, just as supporting freedom of religion (which includes the right of Satanists to worship as they please) is not the same as worshipping Satan yourself.

I personally loathe smoking, but I accept the right of other people to poison their own lungs. This does NOT make me a smoker by any means.

I knew a Christian woman who said she was technically pro-choice, but also said that if she knew someone who was going to have an abortion, she would follow her to the door of the clinic begging her not to have one, and would be waiting when she got out willing to help her get her life back together.

She also said that she did not think that abortion was an entitlement to be paid for by public monies.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 3/29/12

StrongAxe, By what you have said here, you are so watered down in your beliefs. To support a "woman's right to choose" IS the same as advocating Abortion! But, no matter, Obama is PRO-ABORTION. He instigated the "Mexico City Bill" in February 2009, which gives anybody, anywhere the ability to have an abortion with the government footing the bill. If you really believe as you say, then, you are a lukewarm christian and you need to humble yourself and get before GOD to insure your Salvation with HIM. Abortion is not an option. It is cold-blooded MURDER!
---Gordon on 3/29/12

Jed: Sexual sin has been around for centuries. Legaling it, or not legalizing doesn't change people's behavior. They'll still do it. Frankly, they are not my concern. That is between the people who choose to live that way and God. I am responsible for my behavior.

As a voter, my concern is the children born into poverty. PERIOD. They have no say in the matter, and they are helpless to change their situations.

Get off your Holier-than-thou soapbox and explain to me how you can be a Republican and vote for people who would deprive poor children of a decent education and food, clothes, and housing.

I am all for people with disabilities to get help. What I am against is if you are "bi polar" or an alcoholic you can receive disibility benefity. Even anxiety is used. My daughter actually tried to get disability but didn't until she was terminal.She finally got it 2 months before she passed. my dr told me he got a c pap machine for several people on welfare and they traded the machine for drugs. God help us all.
---shira4368 on 3/29/12

No Trish, you didn't use the correct terms because food stamps and medicaid are also welfare. Everyone knows welfare is broken and doesn't help the truly needy but only enables the lazy. If there was a system that actually helped the truly needy I think republicans would be fully behind that. Oh wait there is, it's called charity and taking care of your family. And I didn't ask if ungodly lifestyles were protected under the constitution or under law. I asked how you can claim to be a christian and support same-sex marriages, abortion, premarital cohabitation, and wealth redistribution, based on the Bible, which is a Christians guide for right and wrong, not the government.

Social Security Disability has become nothing more than life-long welfare for people who have never worked.
---Jed on 3/28/12

You sound just like my ex-Wife!

When I was working multiple jobs, she found something else to complain about. I wasn't home enough to share in the child-rearing work.

When I had an on-the-job accident that left me permanently disabled, I was forced to apply for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). My ex complained about getting little-to-NO child support from that. That's just tough.

Now, you come along. Complaining all the time too.

Makes me wonder if you were hired by my ex to harrass me.

The Bible says to NOT complain, Holier-Than-Thou, Jed.
---Augie on 3/29/12

Jed: I am not the ignorant one. I use the correct term for the correct benefits. If I say Welfare, I am referring to Cash Assistance. If I want to refer to Food Stamps, I say Food Stamps, etc. You see, I studied these programs in depth in graduate school. It's part of getting an MSW.

As for the questions about being a Democrat and a Christian, I have repeatedly answered that. I support the party that looks out for the children born into poverty. After spending close to 25 years working in public education, mostly with kids born into poverty, in an urban school district, I support that party that looks out for those kids. They are already born, and it is not their fault their parents bore them into poverty.
---Trish on 3/29/12

Jed2: I support healthcare benefits for everyone who isn't covered by their employers.

If you have a problem with the Disability benefits being given to undeserving people, talk to their doctors and the people who do the evaluations for the benefits. They speak with every doctor, hospital, radiology center and lab. It's not as simple as you think.

As for the sexual behavior of people in our country, there is this thing called a Constitution. And somewhere in our history, the phrase "equal protection under the law" was mentioned. That was not just for people who obey the Holy Bible's definition of sexual purity. We are not a Christian theocracy. First Amendment guarantees that we won't be.
---Trish on 3/29/12

Trish, you really are ignorant aren't you? Welfare consist of much more than cash benefits. Many people are on food stamps and medicaid their whole lives. Social Security Disability has become nothing more than life-long welfare for people who have never worked, or worked very little, allowing people to go the rest of their whole lives without working. Also, you seem to be avoiding people's questions about how a christian can support core democrat beliefs like abortion, same-sex relationships, pre-marital intercourse, and redistribution of wealth? How can you support this stuff and still claim to be a Christian?

\\Then explain how such Democrat basics as partial-birth abortion, same-sex marriage, prohibition of prayer, and free food for no work can be reconciled with the Bible prohibitions against them. \\

Abortion became legal under a REPUBLICAN court.

This illustrates WHY our Father GOD allows us to have Different opinions, values, etc. That we see things from other people's perspective.

The Bible mentions "As Iron Sharpens Irons, So One Person Does For Another".

Same goes for Democrats and Republicans. Personally, I don't believe that Jesus Christ was EITHER. He accepts up for who we are. Political Parties are a Canonical, or Man-Made, Law or Rule.

These days, it seems like GOPers are the ones causing Delays, and Gridlock, in St. Paul, MN and Washington, DC.

It is not that welfare is, in itself, inherently bad. It DOES keep those children you are worried about with roofs over their heads and food in their bellies - rather than being starving and homeless.

The problem is that many actual implementations of welfare are poorly designed - they encourage irresponsibility, and actively DISCOURAGE responsibility - for example, scaling off benefits by what is earned, and cutting off health care - so anyone who gets an entry-level part-time job gains no benefits from it at all, and actively LOSES benefits. As a result, many people (especially those with children) can't afford to work!

Trish, if you really want to help children born in poverty, then why do you support programs like welfare that actually hurt these poor children by allowing their parents to not work? Welfare does not cure poverty, it actually creates it. It stifels parents potential for working their family out of poverty by enabling them to survive without working at all. So welfare actually keeps families in poverty by taking away people's need to work and live responsibly. We will never know what great success some people may have acheived if only they had been forced to work for their living. Welfare has never cured anyone's poverty, only working does that. Welfare creates chronic poverty.
---Jed on 3/27/12

Haz: I work in a psychiatric hospital, where words can make or break the patient. Word choices are very important when dealing with the mentally ill in a crisis. As for welfare, I am talking about providing the needs of helpless children born into poverty, with no chance of getting a meal some days, except what they eat in school, because of their parents' choices.

Besides, in the United States, a person only can collect welfare funding for a lifetime limit of FIVE years. It's a law that was passed by a Democratic president, Bill Clinton. No more lifetime welfare recipients. Plus, in order to collect a welfare check a person must either work part time, or be in training for a job. No more sitting at home watching TV.

Trish, a president who is pro-life could appoint better Supreme Court judges who won't legalize such ungodly acts of murder. The Supreme Court judge in the case of Roe v. Wade was APPOINTED by a PRESIDENT, so yes it really does matter what the president believes.

And are you really trying to convince us now that you don't support abortion after that comment? Only an advocate for abortion would refer to abortionists as "pro-choice" and use the "woman's right to choose what she does with her body" defense. We already know by your comments on other threads that you support abortion. You still insist that you are a Christian yet still a democrat? Which one is it? You can't be both.

I wasn't talking about two sides being unable to ever agree because they have different views. After all, it is possible for people's opinions to change.

I was talking about two sides being unable to agree because they speak a different language. If two people use the same words to mean two different things, they will never be able to agree - because if they ever DO agree on the same words, what they mean will be different.

For example, if one Christian group believes baptism means immersion and another believes it means sprinkling, even though they agree about baptism, they will still fight over what that words means.

You said to Jed, " the pro-choice decision of Roe v. Wade."
"Pro-Choice" is the term liberal/Left abortion supporters use to distract from what they consider to be of no significance, that is killing babies.

Anti-abortionists use different labels higlighting the fact that babies are killed because they are unwanted/inconvenient.

I hope your use of the "pro-choice" label was just a slip-up and not your true sentiments coming through.

Your correct both sides can never reach concensus as they have very different views about rights. The conservative/Right supports the rights of babies to live and not be killed whilst the liberal/Left considers a baby's right to live inconsequential to a woman's right to kill her unwanted baby.

Trish, do you ever examine Obama's record or just listen to little pieces of what he says? Obama, by his own admission is pro-abortion. And he has proven it by his record. He has even gone as far as supporting the killing of born babies who survive abortion attempts. Why don't you actually look at his voting record and policies instead of just going off one little clip that you saw on the news. Oh and by the way, everyone already knows that Christians opose abortion. Don't try to make it out as if abortion is okay just because it's been legalized by the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court doesn't dictate right and wrong. God does. If you're going to defend abortion, please don't call yourself a Christian and make a mockery out of Christ.
---Jed on 3/26/12


I was not describing my position. I was describing Obama's. Of course it's liberal/left/PC - because HE is. Personally, I LOATHE PC-speak.

Obama never said he is "pro-abortion". He said he supports "a woman's right to choose". These two terms mean different things, just as "anti-abortion" and "pro-life" mean similar but different things.

Because one side considers two terms different, but the other considers them the same, means they can never ever reach a concensus - because they speak two different languages.

(Also, many Christian anti-abortionists aren't REALLY totally "pro-life", as they also support capital punishment, which is, in itself, anti-life.)
---StrongAxe on 3/26/12

I saw Obama interviewed during the 2008 election season. He was asked about his stand on abortion. He said he is opposed to it, but believes it is a states issue, not a national issue.

The point is mute, as the Supreme Court ruled it is a woman's right to control her body, and choose abortion. It doesn't matter what an elected official says about the matter. They are powerless to do anything to overturn the Supreme Court's ruling in Roe v. Wade.

This is very PC.
Really it's more accurately put as legalizing the killing of unwanted/inconvenient babies (as their right to live does not matter).

Likewise Obama's religious prejudices as described by Jed. We see similar in Australia. Christian events, beliefs, rights (which have been a major part of our Australian culture/heritage) are constantly being undermined by what is considered as the greater rights of religious minorities and humanism.
Calling this "freedom of religion" is just a deceptive label by the liberal/Left for politically correct discrimination.

At the bottom were four symbols: an Islamic star and crescent moon, a Communist hammer and sickle, a Nazi swastica, and a peace symbol. The caption said "Make up your mind. He can't be all four".

People who insist he's a Muslim should remembed this: under Islam, apostasy carries the death penalty. Obama and his family attend a church. If he were truly a Muslim, surely Muslims everywhere would be calling for his death for that reason. Many want him dead, but none every said they wanted him dead for THAT.

There is a big difference between advocating abortion (wanting women to kill babies), and supporting "a woman's right to choose", just as there is a big difference between actively some pagan deity vs. supporting freedom of religion (allowing others to worship gods of their choice).

Do you want the government to establish churches and force people to go to them? I sure don't. I wouldn't trust them to get it right anyway. But that doesn't make me a pagan.

Have you heard Obama ever actually say killing babies is a good thing?

October 19, 2010 Obama begins deliberately omitting the phrase about the Creator when quoting the Declaration of Independence an omission he has made on no less than seven occasions.

January 2011 After a federal law was passed to transfer a WWI Memorial in the Mojave Desert to private ownership, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that the cross in the memorial could continue to stand, but the Obama administration refused to allow the land to be transferred as required by law, and refused to allow the cross to be re-erected as ordered by the Court.

November 2011 Obama opposes inclusion of President Franklin Roosevelts famous D-Day Prayer in the WWII Memorial.
---Jed on 3/26/12

Saq, I agree that prayer is the ultimate answer for any problem we face. But British statesman Edmund Burke said it plainly and accurately, "Evil flourishes when good men do nothing." Sometimes, we have a duty as christians that goes beyond praying and leaving it up to God to move. There are situations in which God wants us to act. I believe in addition to prayer, the best thing we can do as Christians during this election is bring awareness of the truth to people that have no clue, so they can vote America's most Biblically-hostile U.S. president out of Office, and make a real difference for Christ. Sometimes sitting around praying for God to do everything for us is not the answer.

Trish, It's time to WAKE-UP. This has nothing to do with mere POLITICS. Obama is NOT a Christian. A TRUE Christian would NEVER, EVER support and advocate Abortion, as Obama does! A person can SAY that they are a Christian 1,000 times a day. But, if they are living contrary to GOD's Word, then, that indicates what they REALLY are. The Lord said that "by their fruits ye shall know them." Any true Saint paying attention to Obama KNOWS that he is a Christian-in-name-only!

Jed: I am certain that you could go through a similar litany of such things by past presidents. In fact, I researched that Bible burning incident and that military rule was passed by Bush II.

It sounds like you just want an excuse to trash talk a Democratic president.

Leon, it is at the very core of self-righteous people to stir up hatred. They can't help themselves, so we must forgive them. Paul didn't stir up hatred towards Caesar, and by the same token we ought not to stir up hatred towards anyone in political power.

I've known many people, in many churches, many denominations, where something like this is always an issue.

Are they a REAL Christian? A Democrat? A Republican? Pro-Life? Pro-Choice? Etc. Etc.

It all comes down to there being TOO MANY imperfections -- of all sorts -- for anyone to effectively deal with them all.

Instead, I believe that the answer is PRAYER!

Pray that GOD will touch these people's hearts that they would turn towards HIM.

The prayer list includes: President Obama, Democratic & Republican politicians, Church leaders, World leaders etc.

A much better use of our time than trying to figure out the WHYs and REASONs here.

\\May 2009 While Obama does not host any National Day of Prayer event at the White House,\\

And is the National Day of Prayer supposed to be intrinsically Christian, Jed?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Jed: You are so right! Obama is an anti-American, Communist, Muslim infiltrator bent on the distruction of America and Christianity. He is the single most distructive event ever to happen to America. Why his cultic followers continue to "believe" in him is a mystery.

Jed: Thanks for the info on Obama. He's worse than I had originally thought.

Trish, In April 2008 Obama spoke disrespectfully of Christians, saying they "cling to guns or religion" and have an "antipathy to people who aren't like them."

In April 2009, In a deliberate act of disrespect, Obama nominated three pro-abortion ambassadors to the Vatican, of course, the pro-life Vatican rejected all three.

February 2012 The Obama administration made effulgent apologies for Korans being burned by the U. S. military, but when Bibles were burned by the military, numerous reasons were offered why it was the right thing to do.

April 2009 When speaking at Georgetown University, Obama orders that a monogram symbolizing Jesus' name be covered when he is making his speech.

May 2009 While Obama does not host any National Day of Prayer event at the White House, he does host White House Iftar dinners in honor of Ramadan.

August 2010 Obama speaks with great praise of Islam and condescendingly of Christianity.

2010 While every President traditionally issues hundreds of official proclamations and statements on numerous occasions, Obama avoids traditional Biblical holidays and events but regularly recognizes major Muslim holidays, as evidenced by its 2010 statements on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha.

October 2011 The Obama administration eliminates federal grants to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops for their extensive programs that aid victims of human trafficking because the Catholic Church is anti-abortion.

September 16, 2009 Obama appoints as EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum, who asserts that society should not tolerate any private beliefs, including religious beliefs, if they may negatively affect same-sex equality.

I think Jed just posted this to stir up an argument. :)

Explain how you perceive hostility toward Christians. What I see is strict adherence to the 1st Amendment. That is not hostility. So, I don't understand what you are talking about.
