    You think what God said is dependent on the church?

    He said what He said so what you are saying is that as long as some churches ignore God's teachings they will get liberals to go there.

    It's impossible to be a Christian and a liberal at the same time.

    PS New England, MA, (NEON 'BLUE') in particular, the lowest divorce rate in the country and least amount of abortions. Go figure.
    Can't wait for God to march all the aborted children in front of you and ask you what you have to say for yourself.

    They dragged you to mass? Is that the "mass incarceration" they're talking about?

    They have silent because there isn't many of them. My best friend is a Liberal Christian and he has become disappointed with Democrat policies that go against his beliefs. He admits he is becoming more Conservative.

    If America is a Christian nation, it must die so it can be resurrected.

    My best friend is realizing that. After I asked him how he stands on abortion and Gay marriage he kind of choked up and realized his politics doesn't line up with his beliefs
