Christian Conservatives Use Churches to Increase Voter Turnout

In a sign that shows that Republicans cannot stand on their own principles and philosophies, Christian Conservatives are using churches to drive voter turnout in November. It doesn't matter that their policies are failures, as long as you get the ardent coming to the "Party of God."

Of course you won't find Republicans claiming that today, because "party of God" means something in Arabic. It means Hezbollah.

..and Jesus said "do not worship me for I have come to fullfill prophesy" "Worship the Father and not me" ...

Only those that understand Jesus' words and act on those words will be accepted into the Kingdom...not those that worship Jesus. Accepting Jesus for what he was means accepting God the Father for what God is: The Father of all and creator of everything. Worship God and not Jesus...

If you truly believe this, then why do you continue to post like crap like this? Dan, you aren't a moderate if you continue to type nothing but polemics. seriously Dan, I know you can do better. Even if the Republicans make you angry, don't stoop to their level. Just write the facts and keep the emotions to a minimum, even if you are angry.

because, Ruby, I'm afraid that Americans are going to fall for this charlatan act once more, and it must be shown how evil it really is. Yes I am a moderate. I hope that shows just how extremist Republicans have gone, Ruby, since Bush has come to power. Using churches to recruit members to their political party? Infusing Christianity and the Republican party? That's what Shi'ites do with Islam! That's what Hezbollah does! It is not polemic to say it how it is. That's what they do. And that is what Republicans are doing. It must be stopped as all this will do is further degrade the good name of Jesus, just as Mohammed's name has been dragged through the mud by idiots like Bin Laden and Nasrallah.

True moderates will decry these tactics. Moderation does not equal acceptance of both sides if both sides are extreme and use ugly tactics. There are many conservative principles which I agree with. What Republicans are doing is destroying their own principles. To not further destroy America, I will speak out against them, and show exactly what they are doing, and how similar they are to Hezbollah.

Ruby,

why did you delete your post? I managed to read it before you deleted it.

I'll work on moderating the tone some more. I just see what is happening over in Israel where the Israelis recognize immediately when their leadership did something wrong and are probably going to act pretty quickly to do something about it. Then I see Americans falling for the same charlatan act over and over again....What is wrong with us?

Dan, you're a nice enough guy and you married a jewel of a woman, and what I'm saying isn't a personal attack, I'm giving you advice that will help you actually be a voice that people listen too. As someone who considers themselves a moderate, I have a real problem not with the arguments that you state, but your presention. Your presention is not moderate. Your presention is full of polemic attacks that doesn't really allow someone to debate. I have a lot of issues with the current administration, but there's a way to present your strong beliefs and opinions in a way that isn't always attacking. People pay attention to reason, they tend to dismiss emotion.

Oh, I thought both of my posts were too strong. I moderated my tone on the last post. ;)

Dan, step back. This upcoming race in November is going to be very interesting. Sen. Lieberman was just defeated by a guy the NY Times called a moderate (according to kell, I haven't had a chance to read the article) because of Sen. Lieberman's support of the war. Virginia chose a Iraqi vet who is anti-war and a former republican who virtually came from nowhere to face Sen. Allen. The Republicans are desperate, and this mid-term election may just be a very, very interesting one to watch. Sit back and enjoy the ride as we watch the democratic process in our country go forth. I know you doubt it sometimes, but even though Americans may puzzle you a lot, we aren't too dumb...I think you may actually be in for a surprise come November 14.

Thanks for trying to moderate your tone. You're a good guy. ;)

I agree it will be an interesting election in November. I guess I've become too cynical with what I've seen over the past few years. I'd sure like to be surprised, but I'm not holding my breath.
