Why a True Christian Could Never be a Democrat

A Column by the Editor
web posted January 27, 2014

COLUMN Ė As we enter the sixth year of Obama as president, the radicalization of the Democrat Party has been broad and sweeping and promoted like propaganda by the so-called "Mainstream Media" as their gospel. If you do not agree with the Obama Administration you are a racist, homophobe, right-wing extremist, "bitter-clinger", as Obama said, to the Bible and guns. To them, if you do not agree with their radical views, you are the radical, not them.

Let's take a close look at what Obama has forced on America, factually and undisputable.

Obama and the Democrats, without a single Republican vote, forced socialized styled healthcare down our throats. And it has been an unmitigated disaster and it hasn't even been fully implemented yet. Remember those "death panels" that then Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin was castigated about as being stupid and a liar. Well, guess what, she and other Republicans were right. 

Liberal Time's reporter Mark Halperin admitted so in an interview in November of last year. 

MALZBERG, HOST: A lot of people said you werenít going to be able to keep your health care, but also they focused on the death panels, which will be coming, call them what you will, rationing, is part of it...

HALPERIN: No, I agree, and thatís going to be a huge issue, and thatís something else on which the president was not fully forthcoming and straightforward.

MALZBERG: So, you believe there will be rationing, a.k.a. death panels?

HALPERIN: It's built into the plan. It's not like a guess or like a judgment. That's going to be part of how costs are controlled.

So now we know Obama and the Democrats lied not only about keeping your doctor or your insurance, they also lied about "killing grandma", which they claimed Republicans wanted to do by opposing ObamaCare. But, as I pointed out in the opening, liars will always accuse those challenging their truthfulness as liars. And the media play right along.

But, lets dig deeper. "Gay Marriage", is now all the rage. From what I can tell, there is nothing "gay" about being a homosexual to start with. Obama pushed to let homosexuals serve openly in the military. As such, anyone, including Chaplains, were then no longer welcome in the military because, there again, if you disagree with the radicals, you are a "hater", a "homophobe" and a long list of other vile names.

In other words, if you are a Christian and express your Constitutional right to free speech and religious beliefs - you must be silenced. Conform to the radicals, or you are the radical.

The same is true with abortion. Republicans warned ObamaCare was a backdoor way to government funded abortions on demand. Even if your minor child wants to get one without the parents' knowing - Your government will step in and take control, because, if you do not support killing unborn children, you hate women.

Forget that those against abortion are not hating women, they are glorifying the birth of a child by that woman and are protecting that child from an unwarranted execution. What a "hateful" position to have. On the other hand, Democrats bemoan the execution of the most vile and violent criminals as "inhumane". An innocent unborn child, no problem, a child rapist, murderer, mass murderer - that's inhumane.

Only a Democrat could support that way of thinking.

Don't forget Obama's attacks on the Catholic Church, forcing them to provide free abortifants for employees at their hospitals, charities, shelters, and schools. It seems Obama and the Democrats believe the only "religion" worth supporting is the religion of liberalism dressed up to hide its Marxists intentions. What happened to their fictitious "separation of church and state", found only in communist doctrine.

During the DNC Convention, it was not until Fox News and other conservative outlets alerted the nation that the Democrat Platform had removed any mention of God or Israel. It took three obviously overwhelming supported voters for the removal to be rebuffed and to be ruled passed amid boo's from the majority of delegates. Don't believe me, watch it for yourself here.

If that's not anti-God, I don't know what is.

The Obama Democrat Party is the one that hates. It hates anything that is based on Biblical teachings. It hates anything that encourages independent thought that it does not agree with. It hates anything that promotes individuality and self preservation and independence from government.

Basically, Obama, and the Democrats, hate anything that made America great, including the free market.

To Obama and the blind followers of the Democrat Party, government is their god. And anyone who does not believe in their god, is guilty of blasphemy.

Well, count me among the blasphemous. Count me among the "haters" because I will not bow to the god of government over individual liberty and freedom. Count me among the "homophobes" because I love the sinner but hate the sin, for I am a sinner myself. Count me as a "right-wing extremist" because I hold and cherish the Constitution of these United States.

Because I love God, and Jesus, and the founding documents and our Constitution, I, to Democrats and Obama, are the enemy, and they have said so. 

Count me among the free Americans.
