Christians and Republicans

Maybe Christians are wrong in supporting Republicans:

35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.' 37"Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?' 40"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'

I’ve never heard a Republican talk like that, actually sounds a lot like most Democrats, maybe Jesus was a socialist.

The Bible says not to bear false witness against our neighbor and to love our enemies. Hmm, "theres weapons of mass destruction in Iraq." Actually no that was false.

“Christ pronounces his blessing on the peacemakers.” No ones ever accused this administration of making peace.

“Let he who is without sin cast the first stone” Hmm, that almost sounds like they are saying to live and let live and not punish people who think or live differently from you.

Again these are not things the Republicans are known for.

Can Christian's be republican's...yes.
Can Christian's be democrats, yes.

The only difference is that the conservative christian believes that each person should help another, not the government.

the liberal believes that it's governments job to take care of people.

What most people don't realize, is that if the government is taking care of you (Welfare, medicare, medicaide, Social Security) they are making a slave out of you.

I choose to live free, helping those who need help, which is why I believe in community service and volunteerism.

So why don't they help eachother?

I am not saying Christians don't do their share. Certainly most aid organizations, soup Kitchens, and rehabilitation programs are Christian, but those aren't the people who are in the White House and in Congress and voting for such people.

No kidding. I'd like to just wipe Washington off of the map and start over again. Maybe make Capital Hill someplace like Kansas, where common sense rules.

But then, I guess the idiocy in Washington is what happens when you build in the middle of mosquito country.
