Party platform:
Pollution is bad
Green energy is good for jobs, good for world
Animal species are to be considered with all development projects
Tax semi automatic weapon amo heavily so these idiot 18 year old spoiled brats can't ruin gun rights anymore with their mass shootings
Buy local to support your neighbors
Abortion can be outlawed with adequate health care, both contraception and maternity and infant healthcare, and or welfare
Gay marriage is defined civilly, as they are citizens, but marriage is separate, since it has religious roots in western civ
The impact on our poor is to be tantamount on all legislation
Term limits because career politicians are the worst plague we are facing
Usury is outlawed ( going old school)
Regulation of all chemicals to be used on the human body or near the human home (screw you, monsanto.)
And how about extended maternity and paternity leave
All people, regardless of race, religion, gender, and sexual orientation are equally entitled to all the rights of American citizens. Not just the rich white ones

Separation between church and state is built in, dont act conservative if you want to change fundamentals.

Abortion is necessary, people who are well off don't just say F it, let's abort. Only people who are down and out have to make that decision (hello welfare).

So forcing children to come into a world where they weren't wanted and have no opportunity is not saving them.

Gay marriage, why do you care? How does that affect your spirituality if gay people marry? If anything be a Christian and be evangelical. Jesus loved everyone, all sins are equal, so don't point out and punish the ones that erk you.

BTW all sins being equal includes judging.

A true Christian party would be open to prostitutes and we would wash their feet as Christ would.

I'm an agnostic, not a Christian, but I know he scripture. And even Jesus had disdain for organized religion, more specifically denominations.

Take this close minded sh** somewhere else and stop falsely representing a spirituality and making it look bad. Being a spiritual Christian should embody love, open minds, and realizing we are all human. What you proposed is a perversion of what can be a beautiful belief.

a reply to: CriticalStinker hey, broheim. Everyone gets equal rights. Best boss I ever had was gay, and she deserves all the rights and tax benefits I get. I just think things could be defined differently. How many dudes you know took 3 months paternity leave? What about their rights?

The friends I have had who had abortions did not want to... They were stuck in a corner by poverty or abusive men, hence my stance on that.

Where and when did Christ even consider political activism
It's interesting to note the atheists demanding separation of church and state but it was the church who demanded it first, they are just copying us
What right did Jesus give us as Christians to enforce our faith on others, our beliefs, go tell the world the gospel is different to force the gospel on the world

Start a party by all means, please don't say you are doing it in Jesus name, He died protecting the individual to choose their own path

Fundamentalists demand, Christians care

Please don't.

Crunchy Granola Christians is just too much to dislike in one party.

a reply to: Raggedyman Christ stood in front of Pontius Pilate, a Roman officer, for subversion of the state. That's not political?

Christ took on the Sanhedrin for his miracles, & admitting He was God. Miracles mainly aimed at the poor. That is not political?

You're buying a story that doesn't match up. Christ was all about life and helping the downtrodden. What offends you? , Term limits?

I'm not racist, I have a black friend... Is what that sounded like.

If you want to be a progressive Christian, start by bringing back the true spirituality instead of sugar coating the same rhetoric we've heard from people afraid of different people living around them.

View different ideology as an opportunity. If it scares you you're uncomfortable with your own.

Environmental Christian Party?

What incentive is there to save the planet when Jesus will be coming soon and destroying it all?

Yes Jesus did upset the Priests of Judaism, spiritual issue not political there is a difference

God called Christians to be good stewards of this planet, the incentive is to serve God
What's the atheists incentive I wonder, none?

Fair enough, I'll accept that. I'm not sure if there is any atheist incentive apart from looking after your children.

Maybe, Do god's work because he's not there to do it.

Maybe indeed?
In fact that sounds pretty accurate, God isn't here and has left it to us, stewardship

sometimes, the "adequate health care" that is necessary is an abortion! contraception isn't 100%, and people on welfare seem to be treated as unwanted parasites in our country. and... then there's the people who are too rich to be eligible for welfare but too poor to actually be able to take avantage of the healthcare.
no thanks.....

"marriage" doesn't have it's roots in religion, it's was around a long time before the catholic church decided to make itself part of it, very much independent of religion.

show me in the Bible where Jesus said he was God?? don't believe it's there, at least not in any of my king james versions of it. he got himself into trouble by doing things like, not keeping the sabbath chosing instead to do good on the sabbath. ceaser didn't have anything against him it was the religious jews that did, because he wasn't practicing what they preached. they saw him as blasphemous.

Abortion can be outlawed with adequate health care, both contraception and maternity and infant healthcare, and or welfare hmm, I think im 50/50 on this one
Gay marriage is defined civilly, as they are citizens, but marriage is separate, since it has religious roots in western civ Yea, I think this sounds reasonable.
The impact on our poor is to be tantamount on all legislation I can respect the intent, but do not necessarily agree 100% on this. We will have to explore and define it further
Term limits because career politicians are the worst plague we are facing I think we should re visit this and maybe focus more on making it easier to prosecute any and ALL politicians for crimes and treason.
Usury is outlawed ( going old school) I have collected my own interest thank you. We can narrow usuary down to eliminating predatory rates like payday advances and capping credit cards to no more than 12%.
Regulation of all chemicals to be used on the human body or near the human home (screw you, monsanto.) Certainly this is a no brainer
And how about extended maternity and paternity leave I have actually had 3 months of paternity leave at least twice, and that was as an hourly associate at Wal-Mart. I don't think we should force this on business, but we could work on tax incentives to motivate companies to make it more accessible to employees.
All people, regardless of race, religion, gender, and sexual orientation are equally entitled to all the rights of American citizens. Not just the rich white ones You need to repharse this, as the way you have written it you just made the entire Earth's population equivalent to an American citizen and given them access to all of our services. But I do appreciate the intent, however this is already kind of a thing so you know.

I like where this is going, but I see less green and Christian and more socialist bs.

Wheres the increased funding for theology studies in public schools??
What about mandatory across the board plastic bag tax to force consumer to be more responsible with their shopping?? Nobody says you cannot shop without buying bags. Just bring the damn reusable ones and stop whining about "oh man, you mean I have to actually use my brain as a human and remember to bring in my own bags!? OMFG WHAT A SCAM RIGHT!!!! Useless people and idiots are the only ones who would complain about having to bring their own damn bags to do shopping. Keep it in the vehicle you damn lazy cattle!
No, we do not need to freaking put a hold for an important infrastructure project because of a specific species of turtle, rat, bird or insect. The #ing world has thousands of species, damn Earth does not care if one bites the dust so we can get some faster delivery of affordable energy from the northern frontier!

But all in all, I like the intent, its just a bit off.

Oops I didn't word that properly, figure of speech


God can only be omnipresent.
He is there/here, He is just not doing the job that He gave us to do

You make up your on mind, I will mine
