Well, I'm not surprised......

 

America was supposedly founded on Christian Values?  Wasn't it?

And yet some consider that as inappropriate since it leaves out other religions and atheists.

 

The "Christian Right", the "Moral Majority"; the KKK claim to support "Christian Values" and the GOP.

The Klan - really?? You just had to lump them with the others.

 

Evangelicals support the Right.  Do they support "Christian Values"?  They claim they do.

I would think so. Why do you ask??

 

Or is this just another "bash others" topic?  Any adult with an IQ of 80 and above can see this topic didn't "bash" anyone.  And why would any Christian, or any REAL American be "troubled" by a list of Christian Values? 

 

So, again, what has that mean from the perspective of a political discussion or is it just another "bash" topic (such as associating the Klan with the GOP)?

Nice summation of some guidelines for our lives.

Charitable work, a belief system, and doing good for others.

I like it!

These concepts, I’m sure overlap within and are practiced by many credible religions of the world. 

 

Never Forget

You are speaking like Ayn Rand. There is something to what she said but she was an absolutist. Our politics are not absolute.


She was for the self-centered idea of a free market though. I’m for the charitable works of Christianity and any other belief system that does good for others.

Ask a rational and logical person - perhaps a rational and logical person (not a conservative) can help you comprehend the connection and delusional misapprehensions, disingenuities and hypocirsies of so-called "christians" on the political right - and their practice of political dishonesty cloaked in evangeical fabrications - topped by their support of lying, multiply adulterous, treasonous trump...

 

Glad to help...

  Breadcrumbs for those who are not up to date on NC voter fraud.    The GOP guy hired a criminal to rig the election and that is why NC officials will not certify the election.    Same GOP guy is a small time evangelical preacher that he evokes when he doesn't get his way:   shall we prey?

Some have demanded of other posters answers as to whether they are Christians, and whether they are highly knowledgeable regarding interpretation of Jewish and Christian scripture - fallaciously alleging/implying that one has to be a Jew or Christian and/or extremely knowledgeable about interpretation of Jewish and Christian scripture in order to be capable of factually and truthfully observing that some Christians are "all hat and no cattle" - in short - hypocrites...

 

Need to be a member of the club in order to diss club members?

How silly - obviously not...

 

Do all members of a jury - or a judge - have to have committed a murder in order to recognize that a murder was committed - and to convict/sentence a murderer?

 

Of course not - no one rational and logical would ever suggest anything like that.

 

Neither would anyone rational and logical suggest that one must be a Jew or Christian and/or highly knowledgeable about Jewish and/or Christian scripture in order to be capable of truthfully observing that a great many so-called christian evangelicals as well as their leaders (that support trump) - are untruthful hypocrites...
