Madeline Murray O'Hare would be proud.

Matthew 10:12


"Everyone who acknowledges me publicly here on earth, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven.


Enjoy the festivities, just thought you ought to know who wasn't invited.


Mathew 6:6

But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

God does not require public displays of faith.




Very good scripture! Thank you!

Seek the truth: Matthew 6:6

Purging God is a bad idea.

The DNC got caught.


They had a three minute prayer right after the first ladie's address.

Thanks for playing

Put God back in your platform before the situation gets even worse.

We are watching you.

Mayor Castro just mentioned God, and there was silence since most Dems despise God.
He also mentioned prosperity, yet almost all Dems believe in equality.


This post is a decent example of how extreme partisan idealogy borders on illness IMO.

Amongst Catholics....48% lean Democrat, 43% Lean Republican
Amongst Jewish voters...65% Lean Democrat, 29% Lean Republican
Republicans have an advantage in the predictable faiths...Mormonism...where 80% lean gop and Evangelical where 70% lean GOP
www.pewforum.org...

And your second bit is just dumb. The idea that prosperity and equality are mutually exclusive concepts? Must we oppress the majority of the people for a minority of the people to be prosperous? What scary stupidity.

Isn't it strange how our perception is so different. We listened to the same women, yet we "see" each one differently.

Michelle sounded like a cross between a preacher and a lawyer to me...and I don't trust either when their mouth starts moving. For instance, you especially liked the part where she said they didn't care whether you are a Dem or a Repub. I laughed when I heard that. Obama has always made it more than clear, imo, that he is only concerned with his party's viewpoint and in pushing THAT agenda. He never misses a chance to insult that part of the American population that doesn't agree with his policies. He has never really been serious about meeting in the middle. But, that is my perception. You probably buy into the Dem's talking point that the Repubs are obstructionists.

I perceived all the Dem speeches as having one of two messages: "Big government is your sugar daddy" or "Come, suck at the tit of Big Government".

Yes...wahtever you do...don't listen to the other side! You might actually THINK!! And we know how dangerous that is!

This is a thread discussing the Dem Convention and you decide you can contribute whilst bragging that you refused to watch it?

How perfectly symbolic of extremist, partisan ignorance.

I watched the GOP convention start to finish. It wasn't always easy...especially Ryans lie marathon, but it was neccessary if I am going to come to objective conclusions.

It's not a good idea to - substitute - GOD for - anything.

Just watch what happens. There are ripple effects to your actions.

We are watching and BTW so is GOD.

I'll help you out with the full qoute:


"Mitt Romney has so little economic patriotism that even his money needs a passport," charged former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland in his fiery speech Tuesday night. "It summers on the beaches of the Cayman Islands and winters on the slopes of the Swiss Alps. In Matthew, chapter 6, verse 21, the scriptures teach us that where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. My friends, any man who aspires to be our president should keep both his treasure and his heart in the United States of America. And it's well past time for Mitt Romney to come clean with the American people."


And I'll throw in a qoute by Patrick Henry to boot..


“The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them.” Patrick Henry


Now that both god and the founding fathers want Mitt to release his tax returns...how about it?

Don't play cute, you know exactly what I'm talking about

Obama, is an illegal alien, communist, muslim, who is going to become a dictator,
who destroyed the economy in 2008 , invented street drugs and started both wars.





Nice deflection! and move to off topic. I didn't mention any of that information in the post to which you responded. Nice Try at baiting and twisting.

Sorry you think Obama is an illegal alien. You know he was born in Hawaii right??


On topic. Michelle's speech was not shy about praising the govt. Funny how she left out the hard working private enterprise that comprises the majority in this nation. She praised all public workers, the "auto bailout" cough cough choke....the student loan takeover by the govt. and govt. sponsored healthcare reform. Way to inspire a nation on the tipping point.... whatever floats your boat...

Hey! I watched Michelle's speech!!!! Two martinis later and it sounded pretty good


I wasn't bragging... I literally could not bear to watch it. Too much screaming and yelling and twisting, blah blah blah... I've heard it all before... Blame Bush.... What could Obama have possibly done with such a horrible deck of cards.... Obama had no choice but to increase the deficit by $5.5 trillion.... etc etc... The govt. is great... govt. workers are great...govt programs are great.... They are so good that we now have broken another record!!! $47 million people on SNAP. Those tax payer funded ad campaigns must be working to get more people on the govt. tit.

I will definitely be watching Super Bill speak tonight and Obama tomorrow.... I promise!!!!
I'm dying to count how many times Obama says "I" or "Me"....

He sure as hell is...and even Mitt's magic underwear won't protect him from the Karma comming his way.

God has the least patience for those who claim to speak on his behalf with an agenda of demonizing his children...the poor, the disenfranchised, those faithful in actions and deeds, not those who claim to speak for him to exploit the masses...




Proverbs 19:17

Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.


Matthew 6:24

“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.


Leviticus 25:35-37

“If your brother becomes poor and cannot maintain himself with you, you shall support him as though he were a stranger and a sojourner, and he shall live with you. Take no interest from him or profit, but fear your God, that your brother may live beside you. You shall not lend him your money at interest, nor give him your food for profit.

Nobody cares about Mitt Romneys tax returns.

-----------
However, we do care about God being purged from anywhere.

We do care about the $16 Trillion National Debt.

We do care about the 8.3% unemployment rate.

We do care about the price of gas skyrocketing to $3.90 a gallon.

----------

Do you have - any - idea what we care about ???

She praised the hard work of individuals who worked hard to get an eduction and change their own
circumstance...

You need to wash your ears out.

Me, too!
Seriously on both of those things.

And I am also going to count how many times he says 'We.'

Let's meet up here afterward and compare our counts...you want to?

You're not surprised, are you?
I mean, that GOD is a socialist?

Jesus was a socialist...it makes sense that he inherited it, right?

True socialism on a global scale would end war as well as hunger and poverty.
Imagine that!


Maybe that is what they meant when they said He so loved the WORLD...and sent someone to SAVE the WORLD...and then there is that bit about turning swords into plowshares...and I don't think they meant Project Ploughshare.

For sure!

And look what happened to Pharaoh when the people cried out from their oppression. I think surely there must be some crying out going on these days, from the good old US of A...a great deal of it, actually.

Yeah, and so what? How the heck cares if the zealots are watching? Yes, surely God will come down and smite those evil, satan-loving Dems. What a crock. You think "God" gives a damn? Human history is rife with genocide and your God did nothing, but I am sure you are right that it cares that it name is not literally spelled out in the Democratic platform. That's the problem with zealots, they have zero ability to reason, see logic, make a coherent argument.

News flash: "There was a major earthquake in ____ today. Unofficial reports say the death toll is over 500 and likely to rise."

Atheist: "How tragic, how can we help?"

Christian (& Muslim, by the way) extremists: "See God's wrath on the godless country!"

News flash 2: "It has just been reported a 10 year old girl has been found alive in the rubble."

Christian: "It's a miracle!!"

Atheist: "MIracle? Over 500 people have been killed, but some random person not killed is a miracle? Damn those people are insane."

Athiest:
