Carson Makes the Case for God in Politics

Dr. Ben Carson spoke at the Iowa State Fair on Sunday, and he brought with him an impassioned plea to bring God back into the nation’s political consciousness.

“We have to stop listening to these people who tell us that we cannot talk about God,” said Carson. “I wonder, do they realize that our founding document, our Declaration of Independence, talks about certain inalienable rights given to us by our Creator – aka God?”

Carson then said, “So, if it’s in our founding documents, it’s in our pledge, it’s in our courts, and it’s on our money, but we’re not supposed to talk about it. What in the world is that? In medicine we call it schizophrenia, a form of craziness.”

Carson has not shied away from his faith, but this is still a fairly new direction for the candidate. Up till now, Mike Huckabee and John Kasich have been pulling the religion wagon, leaving the rest of the field to pursue a more secular approach to politics.

And it’s tricky. When you start talking morals and God and religion, you risk losing the millions of Republican voters who could care less about Christian conservatism. There is a significant chunk of fiscal conservatives/social liberals who would never dream of voting for a Huckabee. The Reagan Coalition has fractured, leaving candidates to find new ways of pulling everyone back under the tent. And Carson clearly believes the answer lies in a return to religious conservatism.

“There’s nothing wrong with living by godly principles,” he said. “Of loving your fellow man, caring about your neighbor, developing your God-given talents to the utmost so that you become valuable to the people around you, having values and principles that govern your life.

“And if we do that, not only will we remain a pinnacle nation, but we will truly have one nation, under God.”

The problem, of course, is what social liberalism has done to our country. Young people don’t want to hear about morals and principles. Even older voters see the writing on the wall. The abortion ship has sailed. The gay marriage ship has sailed. Family values? What does that even mean in 2015?

As politically dicey as it might be to launch a campaign for God, you can’t help but respect Carson. Even if you’re a dedicated atheist, his candor is refreshing. Together with Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, he represents a new breed of politicians who aren’t afraid to present the country with their true feelings. After years of carefully-prepared speeches and poll-driven platforms, they are a breath of fresh air.

Preach on, Dr. Carson.

    So I guess when the Pope get here next month, and tells you all to embrace climate change, you are all going to say OK.

    when the Pope get here next month, and tells you all to embrace social change, you are all going to say OK

    • Hey troll, still bobbing for nickels, eh? Society changes every now and then and the climate changes every day, so what is your point, shill? Really poor deflection, skidmark.

    • Does the pope reside here in USA? Or does he live in another country? We are worried about our country not Climate changes. The pope is probably controlled by politicians just like everything but he is not here. Most Democrats are Catholic. But for some reason they don’t know what the bible says about abortion and… Planned parenthood is fine with the law breaking gross disgusting human baby parts that they sell after they charge another arm and leg to the woman who chose to abort. This society( mostly politicians) are so money and power hungry they don’t care about morals and values – Hillary should be paying her dues for all the wrong doings to this country not just the 4 dead ones but to all of us. Life is so short. Money is not everything. The greed Greed GREED is also gross. They all move like puppets and sell their soul to the devil to keep their status. Who is the devil? Who works for the devil? That is who we need to worry about, not the pope – he has has also lost his following. I was never Catholic – and wont be. But I believe the Bible is the best way to live life by. If you can get the 10 commandments down it is your passport to a great life. That is all what Ben Carson is really saying.

      • Well said Diane!

      • The Bible actually has nothing to say about abortion. What did Jesus say about abortion nothing. As for Planned Parenthood, they do not sell parts of fetus’. If a woman has an abortion and she wishes to donate the fetus to research, etc., Planned Parenthood carries out her wishes. To do so, they are remunerated for the costs of the donation, between $100 to $300. Those are the typical costs for a donation according to those who are researchers. As for this Pope, he is nnot under the control of any politicians. If you are worried about this country, then you should be worried about climate change – think of the hundreds of fires going on in the western US, the droughts, etc.By the way, if you are going to follow the Ten Commandments, then you should pay attention to honoring on’es father and mother. Notice that the mother is included which is exceptional for your father would have multiple ones, and if your mother is one of the older wives, Dad might be neglecting her for his younger wives and concubines. So that command is about providing particularly for you mother – kind of doing you own Social Security, Medicare, etc.

        • The Bible, the Word of God speaks very clearly of ones who commit premeditated murder which abortion falls under. Did you not learn to read and comprehend? These evil ones are to be sent to God for there is no forgiveness for them in this life unless they repent and were misled. Ones who misled our young to murder their children will answer to every soul of these children on judgement day. This pope is a false prophet. We discern satan’s children and followers by their actions not what comes from their mouth (lies). To be blotted out is to never have lived. Even ones own mother will not remember them or what they looked like so continue your evil ways and reap what you sew. Free will and all God wants is for us to love him as he loves us enough to live our lives trying to please him. Fools.

          • Actually it doesn’t. There is only place in the Bible that deals with the death of a fetus and that is Exodus 21.22-25: 21:22 When people who are fighting injure a pregnant woman so that there is a miscarriage, and yet no further harm follows, the one responsible shall be fined what the woman’s husband demands, paying as much as the judges determine. 21:23 If any harm follows, then you shall give life for life, 21:24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 21:25 burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.
            Notice, the death of a fetus is not concerning a life, hence no life for a life, but a fine. This is why, by the way, all of the branches of Judaism do not oppose abortions.

          • By the way, the Bible is made up of documents created by human beings living in various centuries and representing multiple religious beliefs and religions. From the Religion of the Israelites to early Judaism, and eventually for those who have a NT, the beliefs of what will be Christianity (It is not until the beginning of the second century that Christianity exists as a separate, independent, religion; prior to that it was a Jewish religious sect.)

          • The Holy Spirit birthed the church at Pentecost in Acts. 2.

          • Nope. Human beings created the Jesus movement which eventually evolved into Christianity.

          • You can believe what you choose. I choose to believe God’s word.

          • That is perfectly fine, but don’t claim that you beliefs supersede those of other people. What is true for you is true for you, but it is not true for anyone else. You might arrogantly claim that all other beliefs are false to your own, but there are those who say the same thing about your beliefs, although many other religions are more tolerant that yours.

          • And vice versa not everyone shares your belief in your atheist fairy tales.

          • Why do you assume I’m an atheist? What you said is kind of funny, for those who are atheists, only those who believe in a god or gods believe in fairy tales. Atheists choose not to believe in any god or gods.

          • Yes you DO believe in a little “g” god. It’s the one you look at in the mirror. The one who has a way overblown ego.

          • I'[m sorry,do you actually know me? Again, going to personal attacks when you can’t make a reasonable argument or reply. But then, again, how old are you? Twelve? Oops, now you got me into doing a personal attack, as well as insulting twelve year olds. Sorry.

          • Your flippant, arrogant, overbearing attitude comes out very clearly in the tone of your posts. Tells me all I need to know.
            By the way, kid, I going to be 60 next month.

          • So? What has your age got to do with anything? I’m 64. So, I am flippant and arrogant because I disagree with you? Perhaps I have been too passionate, but I getting really tired of reading comments that are not based on historical facts or little knowledge.

          • Well, I’m not 12 as you arrogantly assumed in your previous post. And as for your “passion” it would be mean and hateful if I spoke like that, right? And WHEN, WHEN, WHEN are YOU going to post comments that are based on historical facts and knowledge and not babblings from sources of progressive leftist propaganda sources? Face it any source I cite you will discount because it is conservative propaganda. Any source you cite is leftist propaganda.

          • And who are you to assume that you are always right? I see you are one who disagrees with everyone, and berate all who don’t agree with you I see the likes of you everywhere. Education****************!

          • Atheists choose hell.

          • And they will be with 99.99% of humanity.

          • Good for you and I mean that. I only deal with religions as an academic scholar. That’s my job, actually.

          • As an academic scholar? You must deal with a LOT of strange out of this world beliefs with man trying to please God.LOL
            The only religion God accepts is found in James 1:27 but not for salvation which is a FREE GIFT(Ephesians 2:8,9). The rest is bogus and the OPPOSITE of faith. Thank you.

          • Not really. Sorry for the delay in responding but your comment was hard to find among all of these. Every religion is different. No two religions are the same, and that includes Judaism and Christianity. Although Christianity came out of Judaism, it is now diametrically opposed to Judaism and vice versa. For some religions, they recognize the existence of gods, but the gods have no role in pay to what we would call salvation. Some religions don’t even have a belief in any god or gods, and so they don’t belief in the practice of prayer. For some religions they believe there was no act of creation and that the universe has always existed but that every 4.5 billion years, it gets a reboot. Everything starts from scratch. Others believe that roughly around the same time you get a brand new universe. Others just believe the world has already existed and no cosmic cycles of birth and rebirth when it comes to the universe. For some religions their ultimate goal is to leave in harmony with nature and the force that created the universe (not a god but a force). Other religions hold that we should live in balance and harmony in nature but also in society and espouse what is the best form of society and government that provides the great advantages to everyone.
            Everyone thinks that their religion is not a religion but true spirituality. All religions have paradoxes.
            Now, when it comes to the New Testament, the epistle of James is actually my favorite not only for the verse you mentioned but also what is in chapter two and that is it is not enough to have the right beliefs, but you have to act on them. After all, demons have the correct theology. For the author of James, true religion is taking care of the widow, orphan and downtrodden. It is not enough to say Shalom to a needy person, you must feed and clothe them. That is thy the author of James says faith without works is dead. He is following in the tradition of the Israelite prophets such as Amos, in which he tells his fellow Israelites that God doesn’t care of prayers, hymns, sacrifices, but social justice.

          • Hi, you’re right about religions being different. Outside of James 1:17 they’re bogus and fostered by the devil as deception as the devil comes as an angel of light(2Cor. 11:13-15) to try and get man to find merit with God through his WORKS.
            Every religion in the world says…DO. True Christianity is relationship and says…DONE by the GRACE of God.
            Pastors don’t like to teach on James because it appears James contradicts Paul which he doesn’t. James is speaking to fellow Christians about Christian living NOT how to be saved.
            Faith in James is a measurement of spiritual growth NOT the means.

            Carefully notice James 2:21, “Was not Abraham
            our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the
            altar?” This event took place in Genesis 22:8-10. Now notice
            Genesis 15:6, “And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for
            righteousness.” The event which took place in Genesis 15:6 was
            different from the event which took place in Genesis 22:8-10. We see in
            the New Testament that Paul spoke of the ROOT of Abraham’s faith; BUT, James
            spoke of the FRUIT of Abraham’s faith. We read in Romans 4:3, “For
            what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him
            for righteousness.” This occurred in Genesis 15:6, which is when
            Abraham was born again. Paul said in Romans 5:1, “Therefore being
            justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
            Paul doesn’t mention works. Romans 4:5 declares, “But to him that
            worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith
            is counted for righteousness.” Yet, James declares in James 2:21, “Was
            not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son
            upon the altar?” This event took place years later, when Isaac had
            grown at least old enough to speak clearly to his father (Genesis 22:7).
            James is simply saying that if a person is genuinely saved by faith, then
            there should be some FRUIT (good works) in that person’s life to show it.
            BUT, James was NOT teaching that works are necessary to be saved–they aren’t!
            Abraham was saved by faith ALONE! Titus 3:5 clearly states, “Not by works of righteousness which we have
            done, but according to his mercy he saved us…”
            Also, notice carefully James’ words, “…shew
            me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my
            works” (James 2:18). With God we are justified by FAITH; BUT with
            men we are justified by WORKS. The reason is simply because mankind
            cannot see out heart; but God can. We read in 1st Samuel 16:7, “…for
            the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance,
            but the LORD looketh on the heart.” James said, “shew me” your faith
            and I’ll “shew you” my faith. Every believer possessing the Holy Spirit
            of God should be a new creature in the Lord, “Therefore if any man be in
            Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things
            are become new.” This is what James was looking for.

            So don’t let any Catholic fool you into believing
            that you must have good works to go to Heaven, you don’t. Looking at the
            Old Testament by itself, I would never have any reason to think that Lot was a
            Christian. Yet, we read in 2nd Peter 2:6-7, “And turning the cities
            of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them
            an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just
            Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked.” Did you
            read that … “just Lot”? James was simply teaching that there should be
            some good works in a Christian’s life to back up his testimony. However,
            this doesn’t mean conclusively that a professed Christian without any good
            works is not saved. We certainly have a right to question their
            salvation; BUT, we cannot say for certain because we cannot see their heart.
            King David killed an innocent man (Uriah) to hide an unwanted pregnancy from
            an affair with the man’s wife (Bathsheba). Would you have thought David
            was a Christian at that moment? Of course not! But David was a
            Christian, who had sinned horribly.
            The Book of James should be a challenge to every
            believer to “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your
            good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).
            And the Book of Romans should be a challenge to every believer to be
            aggressive in winning lost souls to Christ, “For I am not ashamed of the
            gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that
            believeth…” Most importantly is that we NOT confuse the ROOT of
            our faith, with the FRUIT of our faith–because ADDING works to faith is a
            sure road to Hell.

            “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith
            is counted for righteousness.” —Romans 4:5

          • edwinrad, you are SO mixed up! David was not a Christian and Lot was not a Christian. Both of them lived in the pre-Christian era. Lot lived under the Patriarchal Covenant, not the New Covenant in Christ (See Hebrews 8-10) and David lived under the Law of Moses! One could not become a Christian until there was a Christ who died on the cross, an event that occurred hundreds of years after Lot and David lived on the earth.

          • Not a Christian but still saved. Those in the O.T. were saved the same way as today by grace through FAITH. Abraham believed what God told him thus far and was declared righteous(Genesis 15:6). Faith is taking God at His word.
            When a person of faith died before Christ they went to the paradise part of Hades(Luke 16) because their sins were just covered not taken away yet by the blood of Christ.
            Today when a Christian dies, absent from the body, present with the Lord(2Cor. 5:8).

          • edwinrad, tell us– One must repent to be saved; God does not save an impenitent sinner. Is repentance therefore a “work?”

          • Repentance and faith can be understood as
            “two sides of the same coin.” It is impossible to place your faith in
            Jesus Christ as the Savior without first changing your mind about who He
            is and what He has done. Whether it is repentance from willful
            rejection or repentance from ignorance or disinterest, it is a change of
            mind. Biblical repentance, in relation to salvation, is changing your
            mind from rejection of Christ to faith in Christ.

            It is crucially important that we understand repentance is not a work we
            do to earn salvation. No one can repent and come to God unless God
            pulls that person to Himself (John 6:44). Acts 5:31 and 11:18
            indicate that repentance is something God gives—it is only possible
            because of His grace. No one can repent unless God grants repentance.
            All of salvation, including repentance and faith, is a result of God
            drawing us, opening our eyes, and changing our hearts. God’s
            longsuffering leads us to repentance (2 Peter 3:9), as does His kindness (Romans 2:4).

            While repentance is not a work that earns salvation, repentance unto
            salvation does result in works. It is impossible to truly and fully
            change your mind without that causing a change in action. In the Bible,
            repentance results in a change in behavior.

          • Progressive lies.

        • Abortion is in Exodus 21:22,23.

          • Not its not. It is about a woman who has a miscarriage due to an injury incurred in a conflict. And what is the penalty? A fine. Not a life for a life.

        • Premeditated murder is addressed in the Bible. We are also told in the Bible that a soul is present at conception but maybe you slept through that class. Murder our young for our enemies to take over sooner. Idiots.

          • In the Bible the fetus is not concerning a human being. You have that with the law that if a woman suffers a miscarriage because she got hurt during a fight or conflict, the punishment for the man who hurt her and led to the death of the fetus is a fine. No life for a life.

          • Where do you live to be so messed up? When someone murders a pregnant woman they are charged with two counts of murder. So you choose to pervert the Word to suit your evil views.

      • This pope is a false prophet. It is obvious he is not a man of God but man.

      • The pope and the Catholic organization has nothing to do with Jesus Christ and is a cult.

        The Roman
        Catholic Church claims to have started in Matthew 16:18 when Christ
        supposedly appointed Peter as the first Pope. However, the honest and
        objective student of the Scriptures and history soon discovers that
        the foundation of the Roman church is none other than the pagan mystery
        religion of ancient Babylon.
        While enduring
        the early persecutions of the Roman government (65-300 A.D.), most of
        professing Christianity went through a gradual departure from New Testament
        doctrine concerning church government, worship and practice. Local churches
        ceased to be autonomous by giving way to the control of “bishops” ruling
        over hierarchies. The simple form of worship from the heart was replaced
        with the rituals and splendor of paganism. Ministers became “priests,”
        and pagans became “Christians” by simply being sprinkled with water.
        This tolerance of an unregenerate membership only made things worse.
        SPRINKLED PAGANISM is about the best definition for Roman Catholicism.

        The Roman
        Emperor Constantine established himself as the head of the church around
        313 A.D., which made this new “Christianity” the official religion of
        the Roman Empire. The first actual Pope in Rome was probably Leo I (440-461
        A.D.), although some claim that Gregory I was the first (590-604 A.D.).
        This ungodly system eventually ushered in the darkest period of history
        known to man, properly known as the “Dark Ages” (500-1500 A.D.). Through
        popes, bishops, and priests, Satan ruled Europe, and Biblical Christianity
        became illegal.
        Throughout
        all of this, however, there remained individual groups of true Christians,
        such as the Waldensens and the Anabaptists who would not conform to
        the Roman system.
        The Papacy
        and Priesthood
        In the Bible
        there are no popes or priests to rule over the church. Jesus Christ
        is our High Priest (Heb. 3:1; 4:14-15; 5:5; 8:1; 9:11), and all true
        Christians make up a spiritual priesthood (I Pet. 2:5). Jesus Christ
        has sanctified all Christians who believe on Him (Heb. 10:10-11), so
        all priests today are unnecessary and unscriptural. Furthermore, the
        practice of calling a priest “father” is forbidden by Jesus Christ in
        Matthew 23:9. There is only ONE mediator between God and men (I Tim.
        2:5).
        The Catholic
        church teaches that Peter was the first Pope and the earthly head of
        the church, but the Bible never says this once. In fact, it was Peter
        himself who spoke against “being lords over God’s heritage” in I Peter
        5:3. Popes do not marry, although Peter did (Mat. 8:14; I Cor. 9:5).
        The Bible never speaks of Peter being in Rome, and it was Paul, not
        Peter, who wrote the epistle to the Romans. In the New Testament, Paul
        wrote 100 chapters with 2,325 verses, while Peter wrote only 8 chapters
        with 166 verses. In Peter’s first epistle he stated that he was simply
        “an apostle of Jesus Christ,” not a Pope (I Pet. 1:1). The Roman papacy
        and priesthood is just a huge fraud to keep members in bondage to a
        corrupt pagan church.
        The Worship
        of Mary
        Roman Catholics
        believe that Mary, the mother of Jesus, remained a virgin after the
        birth of Jesus and was sinless all of her life. She is worshiped in
        the Catholic church as the “Mother of God” and the “Queen of Heaven.”
        St. Bernard stated that she was crowned “Queen of Heaven” by God the
        Father, and that she currently sits upon a throne in Heaven making intercession
        for Christians.
        The Bible
        teaches otherwise. In the Bible, Mary was a sinner just like the rest
        of us. She said herself that she needed a “Saviour” (Lk. 1:47), and
        she even had to offer a sacrifice for her sins in Luke 2:24. Jesus was
        only her “firstborn” son, according to Matthew 1:25, because she later
        had other children as well (Mt. 13:55; Gal. 1:19; Psa. 69:8). There’s
        only ONE mediator between God and men, and it isn’t Mary (I Tim. 2:5).
        The last time we hear from Mary in the Bible she is praying WITH the
        disciples, not being prayed to BY the disciples (Acts 1:14). The Bible
        never exalts Mary above anyone else. Neither should we.
        Purgatory

        The Catholic
        Church teaches that a Christian’s soul must burn in purgatory after
        death until all of their sins have been purged. To speed up the purging
        process, money may be paid to a priest so he can pray and have special
        masses for an earlier release.
        This heresy
        began creeping into the Roman Church during the reign of Pope Gregory
        around the end of the sixth century, and it has no scriptural support.
        In fact, Jesus warned us about this pagan practice in Matthew 23:14
        when He spoke of those who devoured widows houses and made long prayers
        for a pretence. Psalm 49:6-7 tells us that a person couldn’t redeem
        a loved one, even if such a place did exist: “They that trust in their
        wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None
        of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom
        for him:”
        Peter addresses
        this issue in Acts 8:20 when he says, “Thy money perish with thee, because
        thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.”
        God’s word is clearly against the doctrine of purgatory.
        The Mass

        By perverting
        the Christian practice of the Lord’s Supper (Mat. 26:26-28; I Cor. 11:23-27),
        the Catholic Church has created the Mass, which they believe to be a
        continual sacrifice of Jesus Christ:
        “Christ…commanded
        that his bloody sacrifice on the Cross should be daily renewed by an
        unbloody sacrifice of his body and blood in the Mass under the simple
        elements of bread and wine.” (The Catholic Encyclopedia, Vol. 10, Pg.
        13, Article: “Mass, Sacrifice of”)
        Jesus never
        made such a command. If you’ll check the above references in Matthew
        26 and I Corinthians 11, you’ll see for yourself that the Lord’s Supper
        is a MEMORIAL and a SHOWING of Christ’s death until He comes again.
        It is not a sacrifice. The Catholic Encyclopedia states the following:

        “In the
        celebration of the Holy Mass, the bread and wine are changed into the
        body and blood of Christ. It is called transubstantiation, for in the
        Sacrament of the Eucharist the substance of bread and wine do not remain,
        but the entire substance of bread is changed into the body of Christ,
        and the entire substance of wine is changed into his blood, the species
        or outward semblence of bread and wine alone remaining.” (Vol. 4, pg.
        277, Article: “Consecration”)
        The Catholic
        Church teaches that the “Holy Mass” is a LITERAL EATING AND DRINKING
        OF THE LITERAL FLESH AND BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST. The priest supposedly
        has the power to change the bread and wine into the body and blood of
        Christ.
        Now, what
        does God’s word say about such practices? If you’ll read Genesis 9:4,
        Leviticus 17:11-12, and Acts 15:29, you will find that God absolutely
        FORBIDS the drinking of blood all through the Bible.
        Rome teaches
        that the Mass is a continual “sacrifice” of Jesus Christ, but God’s
        word states that Jesus made the FINAL sacrifice on Calvary! This is
        made perfectly clear in Hebrews 10:10-12:
        “By the
        which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus
        Christ once for all. And every priest standeth daily ministering and
        offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
        But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever,
        sat down on the right hand of God.”
        The mass
        is unnecessary and unscriptural.
        Image
        Worship
        The Catholic
        religion is filled with all sorts of symbols, images, and relics. The
        Catechism of the Council of Trent states these words:
        “It is lawful
        to have images in the Church, and to give honor and worship unto them…”

        It’s lawful
        to honor and worship images? Not according to God’s word. Exodus 20:4-5
        says, “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness
        of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath,
        or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself
        to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting
        the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth
        generation of them that hate me.” Image worship is unscriptural and
        will end with the eternal damnation of those who practice it (Rev. 14:11).

        Salvation
        by Works
        Through
        infant baptism, keeping sacraments, church membership, going to mass,
        praying to Mary, and confession (just to mention a few), the Catholic
        church has developed a system of salvation through WORKS. God’s word
        says that we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, not through
        works:
        “For by
        grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is
        the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Eph. 2:8-9)

        “But to
        him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly,
        his faith is counted for righteousness.” (Romans 4:5)
        Jesus Christ
        came into this world to lay down His sinless life for YOU–to pay for
        your sins, because you couldn’t. Jesus is your only hope for salvation.
        Only by receiving Him as your Saviour can you enter the gates of Heaven.
        There is no other way.
        “Jesus saith
        unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto
        the Father but by me.” (John 14:6)
        The Lord
        Jesus Christ has come and PAID for your sins by shedding His own Blood
        on Calvary. By receiving Him as your Saviour, you can be WASHED from
        all your sins in His precious Blood (Rev. 1:5; Col. 1:14; Acts 20:28;
        I Pet. 1:18-19). Notice these important words from Romans 5:8-9:
        “But God
        commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ
        died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall
        be saved from wrath through him.”
        Jesus PAID
        your way to Heaven for you! By receiving Him as your Saviour, you will
        be receiving God’s ONLY means of Salvation for you. Are you willing
        to forsake YOUR righteousness and receive Jesus Christ as your Saviour,
        your ONLY HOPE for Salvation? Romans 10:13 says, “Whosoever shall call
        upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:9 says, “That if
        thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe
        in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be
        saved.” Are you willing to forsake your own righteousness, and trust
        Jesus Christ alone? He will save you just as He promised. Why not receive
        Him today and trust Him to give you a better way of life?

        • Some of what you said here is true, but not all. Too much of an anti Catholic bias. The passage in Matthew is about Peter presiding over the community that produced the gospel of Matthew, and that he has the power to interpret scripture to make binding or loosening decisions – good Rabbinic terms here. But for Roman Catholicism, it is not a cult, but the largest single branch of Christianity. It has had a problematic history at times. Always occurs when dealing with the politics of an organized religion. But it is a legitimate form of Christianity, just as for the Protestant Christianities and the Orthodox Churches, etc. Was Roman Catholicism influenced by the society it originated in? Yes, but that is true for all Christians when it comes to beliefs and practices, which are not always Bible based. The belief, for example, in a pre-existent immortal soul does not come from Judaism or an original part of Christianity but by Christian theologians who read Plato, such as Origen of Alexdandria, Egypt. All of this is part of a process of syncretism, which is part of the history of all of the major religions today.

          • I’ve been a born again Christian for YEARS and I don’t go outside the protection of God’s word.
            Every Christian with the indwelt Holy Spirit is capable of discerning scripture(1Cor. 2:14) and through the Spirit(Philippians 1:6) and God’s word I’m continuing to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ(2Peter 3:18) and being conformed to His image(Romans 8:29).
            I don’t consider Catholicism Christian whatsoever, just a man made satanically inspired religion.

          • But so is yours, i.e., human made. And by the way, the whole Protestant thing that every Christian has the right to discern scripture, that is why there are over 2,000 versions of Christianity.

          • I simply consider myself a servant of the Lord and I can’t comment on the spiritual life of someone else.
            There are unbelievers in every local church and everyone in the local church is at a different level of spiritual growth. I’ve been wrong on some things and a mature believer would explain things to me.
            We disagree on the time frame of the rapture, eternal security etc. but true Christians are in one accord on basic sound doctrine.

          • Not exacts. Christians are divided for example as to who is going to heaven or hell; whether heaven or hell are physical places or spiritual existences. They differ over resurrection from the dead; they don’t all believe in the rapture which is more of a 19th century thing. To be sure a lot of forms of Christianity share a lot of beliefs, but they are not identifical.

          • The versions are of man and like you self serving.

        • Your point concerning Luke 2:22 is well taken. When read together with Leviticus 12:1-6, it is undeniably obvious that the offering in the latter passage is a sin offering made by Mary according to Leviticus 12: 6.

          This alone powerfully refutes the Catholic claim that Mary had no sin.

      • the rantings of the typical DIM con.

        “Most Democrats are Catholic”
        most Dems barely go to church, ill informed conservative.

        Is the Pope the MOST revered Christian on the planet? YES
        is the Pope supposed to be THE representative FOR God? YES

        FUNNY how on one hand you fools do “everything” the bible tells you
        (well not really, you like to miss parts and observing others)
        but when the TOP Christian says something you fools are no longer Christians, and the Pope is a Nut Job (like you)

      • ” Planned parenthood is fine with the law breaking gross disgusting human
        baby parts that they sell after they charge another arm and leg to the
        woman who chose to abort.”

        this deserves it’s very own response due to extreme stupidity.

        First off there are NO BABY PARTS.
        it’s called “fetal tissue” and it is DONATED not sold

        AND the women get the cheapest kid flush available.

        • The Bible tells us a soul is present at conception so it is murder. All will answer to the souls of these our most innocent and most helpless on judgement day. Don’t believe in it? Free will but one day you will know for sure. Turn or burn.

          • That is a Christian interpretation. and a later Jewish interpretation. For the Israelites, they didn’t believe in souls at all. They believed that they were animated by the breath of their god, Yahweh. Eventually Judaism or some forms of Judaism came up with a belief in spirits, but not souls, not in the way Christians understand the term today. Originally, early Christians didn’t believe in souls because they were actually Jews. Now Jews, who lived in the Diaspora and who had been influenced by Plato and Socrates came to believe in souls, but not from Jewish scripture. Now, it is perfectly acceptable to interpret scripture as you see fit, as long as you recognize that isn’t the original message of the material.

        • No, they charge by how far along the baby is. AND THEY WANT OLDER BABIES BABIES BABIES no fetal tissue – that refers to something dead – oh wait – they take their time to kill a certain way so not to ruin what they are after. The dead baby and the money from the mother and the drug company making new makeup to push off on the lady who wants a false face lift do to baby feces in the formula and have no idea that this shit is in their products…. And other products You must not be a mom or a woman? A baby is a baby. I have 2. I was there doing ultrasounds saw every body part from 12 weeks on. Clear as day CLEAR PHOTOS OF A HUMAN!!!!!!!!! – what else is to say? It is only called fetal tissue to someone stupid enough to disregard human life – you alone in your world?? Got no one with that attitude to care for you?? People won’t come to you in your time of need when you act like nothing and life has no matter.

          • I think that it is wonderful that you are mother. Great. But should a ten year old be a mother? And should her rapist be in her life for the next 18 years? There is a large number of states that recognize the parental rights of rapists, after all they are the biological fathers. Of course, we are assuming the 10 year old will survive giving birth.

          • Muslims, isn’t that the group that sew up their baby girls labia (Crotch) so that when they marry them off to gross old grandpa age men they get to rip them open and rape them as they are sold off by their family? at an age close to menstruation? This is live and real today – so what about all of those girls having babies daily at the age of 10 + that get stoned to death raped and or killed by their family for any reason they like? And are forced to have babies at 10 + age? Is this what you are talking about?? Address this – it is not new – it is under the rug, just like the immigration problems. They want to bring this to the USA. and practice their Sharia law. That is inhumane.

        • Go to medical school like I did, body parts are what they are and you don’t clump everything into “fetal tissue” you would never figure out what needed to be fixed if your medical file was that lame and did not recognize the problem to be fixed within a baby needing medical attention YOU would be FIRED.. – never mind – you don’t know anything about what medical files need – accuracy – and correct information on what needs to be fixed to save a life. fetal tissue refers to nothing – it is a term that is made up to cover up how bad planned parent is – they don’t do health care – they do abortions. they don’t do mammograms.- look that one up. BUT please don’t kill anyone it seems to be in your normal language – even the Cartel or Mafia don’t brag about who is on their list.

          • Just plain lies. they have 857,000 mammograms. 3% of their work is abortions. In some states, PP clinics are not allowed to perform abortions.

          • Morgan, get off the free system go back to your country, learn some normal respect for other people’s opinions You don’t represent or care for America or the constitution and you have no religion in your belief system. for the sake of your lake of knowledge, 3% is just pathetic that you are really believing this? For your own sake, you are really looking mighty in the dark and probably cult driven.. I see you pick fights with everyone – no one believes you or respects you at all at this point. If you work for plan abortion hood, find another job and not in the health field. They are going down – not fast enough but they are going down! We don’t want or need your kind in America. Get off the system!!!!!!!! go get a real job or go home. Planned parent hood is a false title – they kill babies- there are States now taking action and stopping state funding to this gross place of slaughter – Just like Ben Carson said, “Under Obama Care that is Mandatory for Health Care, Why do we need Planned Parenthood?” Oh we don’t healthcare is mandatory and everyone has to have it. Planned parenthood slaughter house is no longer needed in minority places – or anywhere Health care – offered to everyone now. The make-up companies need to stick to products non related to babies body parts for research, collegian, etc.

    • What does that even mean?

      No, never mind. Your clarification won’t make any sense either.

    • NO!!! The pope is NOT GOD!!!!!!!!

    • The Pope is the Pope. He is not God. So, RC, what’s your point?

    • Your precious welfare programs violate separation of church and state since they are forcing us to love our neighbor as ourselves weather we want to or not. The Pope is one good reason to insist on separation of church and state. Islam is another good reason to insist on separation of church and state. No sharia law and no halal food in government institutions. Especially no halal food served in schools or prisons. If Muslims don’t want to eat non halal food they damn sure better obey OUR laws.
      As to Ben Carson, good people are good people despite their religion not because of it. Ben Carson is my first choice for president at the present time.

      • But you have a lot of Republicans that are against the separation of church and state. That is what you have particularly with Santorum, but also Huckabee and Carson, but other politicians who call for a Christian Shari’ah (although they won’t say it that way) in which all of our laws should be based on Christian principles. Now, some politicians will talk about Judeo-Christian principles, but there is no such thing. Judaism and Christianity are diametrically opposed to each other not only when it comes to beliefs, but also when it comes to issues of abortion, capital punishment, embryonic stem cell research, as examples.

        • God’s laws are clear but man perverts them to live as he chooses. The Bible addresses every issue we could ever face. God is against abortion, send any who commit premeditated murder to him (execute) abortion falls under murder, by murdering our young we are giving our future to our enemies. We are fools. God is not a religion that is of man. God is a reality.

          • The Bible doesn’t address every issue. Find me a section that speaks directly on abortion, or the ideal of a democratic republic? What do you find specific teachings on embryonic stem cell research? Euthanasia? Prohibitions against slavery?

          • Yes, it does but you are too blind to see. Ones such as yourself are scoffers who choose to live by the laws of lust to do as you please. All you want is to engage one in arguing. God is a reality but if you admit this then you will feel shame for all you have misled. Evil abounds when good people do nothing.

          • Specifics, not generalizations that can take you into any direct. By the way, evil abounds when good people do certain things.

        • Please change your nick to smart-aleck-know-it-all

        • I am not really a Republican but an anti Democrat would probably be a more accurate description. I believe that all of the Republican candidates are preferable to Hillary. In the past I have been indifferent to separation of church and state as our society affords me all the freedom from religion that I require. I just wish that cross in the middle of the desert in New Mexico was the greatest of the problems that I had to contend with in life. If Ben Carson is elected president I do not expect that he will be knocking on my door and telling me to get up and go to church.
          As the Muslim population grows and becomes more aggressive in their demands, It becomes imperative that we insist on separation of church and state. Islam will not afford me the freedom from religion that I require.

    • Reality,
      Since I am not Catholic, I see no reason to get exited about what the Pope has to say. I already am aware of climate change and I do not subscribe to social change concepts of someone who is associated with a dictatorship that has existed for centuries.

    • Are you a mind reader that you can tell what our Holy Father, Pope Francis will say about social change? As far as I know, the fundamental beliefs of the Holy Roman Catholic Church have never changed and will never change.

      • There have been changes when it comes to beliefs and even practices, but that is the history of all religions and their branches: evolution and change.

  2. God Bless Ben Carson!

    He is a great leader, and I pray the media gives the guy a chance… I would say about 80% of the Democrats are Christians, yet they support a platform that is Godless.

    Perhaps the disenfranchised Democrats could warm up to a guy like Ben Carson.

    • Where do you get your numbers that support such a claim that 80% of Democrats are Christians? I would like to believe this but it would be foolish of me to do so.
      Can you define what Christianity looks like to you? Is it not found in Ephesians 5:8-11
      For you were once darkness, but now you are light
      in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the
      fruit of the light consists in all goodness,
      righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. …

      Psalm 127:3-5
      Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is
      the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.

      If you were even close to your estimation Planned Parenthood would have never even existed or would currently be defunded by our government.
      The Democratic Party is representative of the people that elect them. And I do believe Hillary Clinton is still their choice. Despicably so.
      I ask you support such bold statements that defy logic based on their actions.

      • My numbers are just a guess. I believe at least 80% of all Americans believe in God. It is only the fringe that don’t.

        I believe the tail is wagging the dog right now in America. The moral majority is sound asleep, and evil is at play. That is why PP exists.

        We American institutions have been under constant attack since the 1930s by Communists. They are following the agenda items called out in the book, “The Naked Communist”. The items were designed to weaken America’s institutions. The entire list has been adopted by the Socialists in control of both Political parties…

        15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

        16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

        24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

        25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

        26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

        27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

        28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

        • The count is down to 70% who claim to be Christian. There is now a trend that toward a more secular society. This is particular true with the younger generations that are not all that interested in any religion.

          • the attendance in my church has not gone down ,it has grown conciderablely

          • Might be but the national trend is towards secularization. But there is a trend toward fundamentalist branches of Christianity and Judaism, for example. Many people are more psychological disposed to religious movements that tell you want you need to believe, rather than think about one’s beliefs.

        • this country is truely turned upside down ,example if a student or stundents prays in scooll that is not a church and all the political correctness is ruining this country

          • What is political correctness? Not using racist terms? Treating all people as equal? Not denigrating anyone?

      • good point ,very good

    • Don’t you remember the big ruckus Democrats created when they tried to remove “God” from their platform.
      I do. I SAW it in real time.

      • Did you also see when the DNC booed God and gave honor to the false god allah?

        • No! Really? Was it the same day because I missed that gem!!! Were they chanting “Death to America” also?

        • Yes, I did. And this POTUS is the worse hater of anything that’s not muslem!!

        • You mean the Demoncrats?

          • Yes I most certainly do. The ones who are changing their name to the Democratic Socialist Party. I am with Carson leave DC to dry on the vine and move government to a new location. The Democrat party are the ones who placed obama in office through fraud and forged documents for our enemies. They have betrayed God, Country and their own people for a few pieces of silver. God is good always, fair, just and the first disciplinarian. Too many false prophets teach of his love without his laws to fill their coffers. Tickle ears. Sorry this is a subject close to my heart. I take it personal that people in my country are denying our Heavenly Father. He loves us and we are to love him.

      • I did too, that was 2008, Now the democrat platform is Godless, and nobody complained.

      • How to create a social state by
        Saul Alinsky:There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you
        are able to create a social state. The first is the most important. All eight
        rules are currently in play.1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control
        the people.2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor
        people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing
        everything for them to live.3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable
        level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more
        poverty.4) Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the
        Government. That way you are able to create a police state.5) Welfare – Take
        control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).6) Education
        – Take control of what people read and listen to � take control of what
        children learn in school.7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the
        Government and schools.8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy
        and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take
        (Tax)

        • Yup. Communism 101. It’s a NO BRAINER to anyone with a clue.
          Obamao being a DOMESTIC ENEMY attacking us from within is also a no brainer. Only thing stopping the Totalitarian Commifascists is No.4

        • Yeah, the same Alinsky who led the overthrow of authority by the use of “fart ins, and piss ins to force his beliefs into acceptance! He was the personal satanic mentor for Killary and Obummer before the Lord sent him into the eternal lake of fire also. Just a bunch of insane freaks who think it is just to take away money from others who have worked for it. Atheistic communism, nothing more than collective extortion! That is why America is polluted with welfare whores and jobless ghettos! O’bummer is nothing more than an antichrist racist pislamic sympathizer. Killary is nothing more than a feminazi mass murderer!

    • Joseph Nicholas Toth Jr.

      What He said along, should be enough to persuade the black community to switch parties. I’ve always thought the majority of the black community were religious people. But there are exceptions such as Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson.and Jeremiah Wright. For the life of me I can’t understand how they could be called religious leaders.

      • Al Sharpton, J Jackson & J Wright ARE NOT THE LEADERS OF BLACK AMERICANS. JN Toth, what did you call those white ministers in the KKK, and the White Citizens Council and other white supremacy groups? Both the DEM & REP are two worthless parties that Blacks should NOT support, however the Present DEM’s have been more supportive of Black issues. My vote is for B Sanders.

        • Really? Hate to tell you this but the first black president kicked you to the curb. Why then are things worse for you now instead of better with the present Dems being so supportive and all?

          • I think that a lot of Americans found themselves opposed to Obama because he is black. It why so many believe the hoax that he is not a natural born American, or that he was secretly trained to be a Mau Mau, Marxist, radical Black Christian and of course secretly a Muslim. The man drinks bear, eats pork, does not do the five daily prayers. If he was a Muslim, he would be the worst. LOL. For a Marxist, then why did he save the auto industry, Wall Street, and kept us from another Great Depression? Now during his first term, he rarely talked about race because his opponents was waiting to call him the angry black man in the White House. (They were able to do that with Michelle.) Just another way of marginalizing him. Now, that his second term is coming to an end, he has been more open to talking about race.

            But when it comes to race, Americans don’t really want to talk about it at all, especially when it comes to institutional racism.

          • Institutional racism? Like….”White Privilege”?

          • No. Institutional racism is that is the form that is rarely observed. For example, I live in a predominantly white neighborhood. Now, when I go to my supermarket, I always go through the cashier line faster than most – why, because so many of the customers will pass over a check out line if the cashier is black. Another form of institutional racism is what we find in courtrooms. When dealing with jury trials, prospective jury members are not be eliminated because of their race, however, what we have seen in some Georgia counties is that the prosecuting attorneys will eliminate any blacks if dealing with a black person being tried for murder, or also in other trails. How do they do that? The black potential juror is slouching in his or her chair; they live in a poor part of the country, their names are hyphenated, and things like that.

          • If true that is a shame. I am fortunate to live in a part of the country where we discern ones by their character not their color. I find blacks to be more friendly and helpful than younger whites over the past few years. We live in the same neighborhoods and get along fine. Not all blacks are poor and personality is the key.

          • Mogan you really need to get out of the’60’s and back to 2015.

          • I researched obama before he took office and he is not an American nor a natural born citizen. He was placed in office through fraud and forged documents by our enemies with the help of certain democrats. He was raised in a muslim country by a muslim family and schooled in islam. Much of the information disappeared or was changed when he took office. He did attended college as Barry Soetoro a foreign student until his Harvard probable bought degree when he went back to his birth name. He was registered to vote at the White House address at one time as barry, in Chicago as obama and has harry burnell on his social security number and there is said to be a birth in Hawaii under steve dunham with his and his mother’s information showing him born abroad. He is destroying us from within and any who do not acknowledge this now are a disgrace to their country.

          • That is all untrue. I am sure you did your research on internet and went to websites for the paranoid and delusional. I doubt if you would ever go to a legitimate source and would reject any sources that went against your preconceived notions. And of course, there are people who make their living by creating sensational reports for the gullible.

          • Yep troll, is that you Ellen? How many names do you use? Wording is so similar.

          • That’s all BS! The races have been getting along quite well and improving all the time, UNTIL BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA (AKA THE DIVIDER) HIT THE WH. You really ought to read some of the facts that have been dug up about him. He was groomed for the presidency so he could do exactly what he is doing …. destroying America!!!!

          • Where – the Delusional Net Daily? All of this is coming from websites devoted to making sensational claims for those who are already pre-inclined to believe their junk. Just like those who believe we actually destroyed the twin towers, or the Israelis did it.

          • I see you haven’t heard of Jade Helm! Keep your eyes closed and your ears stuffed – perhaps you can avoid the concentration camps that are ready and waiting for you. If you don’t believe – get off your lazy butt and do a little research. Until then STFU!

          • You are completely insane. So, you believe the American military is the enemy? Well then why don’t you oppose the existence of US military bases in your state. After all they are the bases of the enemy in your line of thinking. But keep the paranoia. Remember the the NSA is following everything on the net and can figure out who you are. So, if there were concentration camps, I wouldn’t answer the door. But please, keep the aluminium foil hat on so that you don’t hear those voices.

          • Check out FEMA on the net the USA is full of FEMA camps all over the USA with barbed wire on top to keep people like you in not keep anyone out FOOL! Gov has a horde of amunition to use against rowdy citizens too CHECK IT OUT FOOL

          • We have had conspiracy theories concerning FEMA since the 1980’s and not a shred of real evidence. The only thing that bears up to scrutiny is that liver North had helped draft a secret contingency plan to suspend the Constitution in the event of a national crisis, such as nuclear war, violent and widespread domestic dissent, or national opposition to a U.S. military invasion abroad. This plan was created for Reagan. So did we have people arrested an placed into camps under Reagan’s orders?
            Now there was also memo written by Louis Gulffrida, who was a directly of FEMA in 1970. In that Gulffrida supposedly advocated martial law in case of a national uprising by black militants and to capture 21 million “American Negroes” and put them in “assembly centers or relocation centers.” So, it would appear that the plans for FEMA death camps were created by Republicans.
            But, of course, most of all of this conspiracy stuff comes from right wing websites, the contents of which is coming from a lot of paranoid people.

          • morgan ,obama is black “half black” and a bad president carson is all black and would be
            a good president

          • Let’s see, what makes a bad president, saving the auto industry, saving Wall Street, providing healthcare to millions. Keeping us out of a another $3 trillion war and under him the deficit is shrinking at a great rate than expected. I guess being a bad president is not starting a war with a country that didn’t attack us.

          • BUT A BAD PRESIDENT ENDED IRAG & LEFT THEM HOLDING THE BAG

          • Also printing another 4 trillion in paper money that is worthless. Making our allies feel like we were turning on them.Obama care that is a bust. An economy that is crap. Saving Wall St? hahahahaha!! What a joke!!! The only Auto Co. that took the bait was GMC. Now known as Government motors.What deficit is shrinking? The 18 trillion one that will be 20 trillion before he leaves office?

          • Don’t forget the louse inhabiting the WH USED OUR MONEY TO BAIL OUT HIS BANK BUDDIES, WALL STREET, et al. These are HIS cronies no matter what the lamestream media would like you to believe that the Repubs have these in THEIR pockets. Not True. See what I mean by not engaging these idiots. They will beat you to death with their ignorance and it just isn’t worth it. They are incapable and totally unable to look truth in the face!

          • OBAMA IS ABOUT 6% BLACK THEN ARAB THEN WHITE & HE HATES THE WHITE PART OF HIS SELF!

          • Groomed by who? What are the sources of information? Don’t include right wing websites or those claiming to be journalists? Any university level researchers?

          • “University level researchers?” Surely you jest. Those are the worst opinions to depend on, since they are all left wing lunatics like you. Do your own damn research; I’m not going to give you links. What I will tell you is: Look up the Bilderbergs! Look up George Soros. Look up George H. W. Bush. Look up the UN and One World Order; look up Jade Helm. There’s a whole plethora of information – truth – out there that you left wingers are too stupid to comprehend..

            Now, know this … I will not engage with anyone as stupid as you because there is absolutely no chance of an intelligent exchange. What mind you have is closed as tight as a bank vault. So don’t bother me any further. I simply will ignore you!

          • Right, people like Mogan will never understand what you write since they live in a darkened world of evil and cannot see the light. They are totally ignorant of reality.
            Ecclesiastes 10:2 A wise man’s heart directs him toward the right, but the foolish man’s heart directs him toward the left.

          • I think you hit the nail right on the head, mallen.

            That’s exactly why I won’t waste any more time on those who are so “blind that they do not see”, or will not see, out of sheer stupidity.

          • OORAH ORIGINAL REBEL OORAH!

          • Thank you Milton … I’ll take that as high praise.

          • Yes, I can remember working with a lot of black people and we all got along great. I hear it is a very different story now. They think they have privileges higher than the white community just because they think -0 will protect them. They have become very difficult unless they are living by God’s Word.

          • Well, don’t forget to give George Soros, as well as obama’s crew, the credit because they are the ones paying for these “agitators” to do what they are doing. These are not the blacks who work for a living and raise their families and go to school alongside whites and other races as well. These are the trash, the thugs who have nothing to do but cause trouble. And they are goaded on by the Jesse Hi-Jacksons, the Al Not-so-Sharptons and gangs like “Black Lives Matter”.

          • Yes, and so far it has not completely worked for -0’s crew. Spots here and there but it is not total destruction.

          • All of this crap is designed to keep America busy with trivial stuff while they ready themselves for the EMPs that are coming our way. NORAD is being moved back into Cheyenne Mountain; reason being to protect some of our military capability from any EMP. Apparently, the Pentagon believes that N. Korea, Russia and Iran all have capable delivery systems to explode a nuclear bomb in our atmosphere which would fry every electronic-run device that we possess. Won’t that be a party? Anarchy will be complete. As will Martial Law. obama is absolutely salivating over this prospect. However, note that the “Pentagon” is not warning the people.

            I wonder if that’s what he meant when he was caught on tape telling that rooster Pukin that he “would be more flexible after I am re-elected”. Then there’s this deal with Iran – N. Korea is all that’s left and I am reasonably sure he has something already in the works with them.

          • Yes, and we have no idea what is coming our way and it won’t do any good to be “prepared” with survival items or guns. The destruction of America is coming because too many people have rejected the Lord and His written Word. We can’t stop the crisis unless enough people are willing to turn back to God, learn His ways and apply them to their daily lives. Man can’t solve man’s problems; God can. We the people deserve what we get when we don’t stop the progressive evil left and their “leaders”. We all need to be ready for the coming crisis — we need to know God’s grace as we go through it and if we survive that He will take care of us. It is so important that we know His Word so we can use it.
            Ps 37:25 I have been young and now I am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his descendants begging bread.
            2 Tim 1:7 God has not given us a lifestyle of fear but of power and virtue love and of sound judgment Lamentations 3:21-25This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope. The LORD’S loving kindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassion’s never fail. They are renewed every morning; great is Thy faithfulness. “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I have confidence in Him.” The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him.

          • No argument here!

          • Read “The Manchurian President” by Aaron Klein well documented how Obama became what he is…

          • I’ll get a copy as soon as I can. I heard somewhere about that book but then I forgot about it and regretably did not pick it up. I’ve heard about the “grooming” of this no-nothing, pseudo celebrity, but I cannot find my link for it now.

          • Michael Ackermann

            Nobody cares that Obama is black. People care whether he represents the American people and he has definitely not done that. Jimmy Carter was a white male and he is considered by many as a bad President. Obama is in that category. Not because he is black but because he appears extremely incompetent and divisive. He has been dividing the US by race, gender, economics from the very first day he was in office.

            The suspicion about Obama has come from Obama himself as he was not very transparent about his history.

          • No, that is just BS. Problem with Carter is that he wanted to micro manage everything. However, if you read his speeches concerning oil and resources, he was spot on. As for Obama, let’s see, saved the auto industry, Wall Street, kept us from another Great Depression. providing healthcare for 13+ millions, and trying to keep us out of another $3 trillion war, dealing with student loaning practices. That’s what you call incompetent? And he did all of this while the Republicans decided that whatever he proposed, they would oppose, even if they were their own ideas. Now, you get Gingrich and others claiming he was raised to be a Mau Mau, and the false claims that he is a Muslim because of his middle name. If that is the case, then I must be a German due to my last name, even though I am Irish. Then is there is idiocy of where he was born. Unless you except that there was a conspiracy that began before he was born to make it seem he was a natural born American, But, the fact is that his mother was American so just by that he is a natural born citizen, just like Cruz is a natural born American, even though he actually was born in a foreign country. But again, you would have to assume that Hawaii entered into this conspiracy to pass him off. So, again, be specific, where is the incompetency? Did he start a war that led to about 4,500 US military dead, 200,000 Iraqi civilians (although some researchers make that much higher), and then over a million Iraqis being displaced. Did he do anything like that? No. Now there are some Republicans claim that because Obama withdraw our troops from Iraq too early and that led to the creation of ISIS. That is untrue, ISIS came into existence in 2007. Plus, the withdrawal of the troops had been settled by Bush in 2007, and impossible to change. Even more impossible because Iraq refused to exempt our troops from Iraqi laws.
            Now, you might be against providing healthcare for others, even though the ACA is working better than anyone expected. You might believe that we should have left our troops in Iraq permanently and that we should attack Iran. You might believe that we should not have saved the auto industry or Wall Street and perhaps it would have been better overall that to have let Wall Street to completely crash. That might be your opinion but because Obama had not done those things, doesn’t make him incompetent.

          • Get off the kool aid for beginning to think you a troll paid to take up for the great destroyer. He put more people out of healthcare than ever in history. The majority of ones on it are illegals. He has put us in great debt and signed our land over for collateral. We need to do as Iceland did and overthrow this entire administration to get out from under his bogus deals. Better to be thought a fool than post ignorance and remove all doubt. Are you even an American?

          • Natural-Born Citizen Defined

            One universal point most all early publicists agreed on was
            natural-born citizen must mean one who is a citizen by no act of law. If
            a person owes their citizenship to some act of law (naturalization for
            example), they cannot be considered a natural-born citizen. This leads
            us to defining natural-born citizen under the laws of nature – laws the
            founders recognized and embraced.

            Under the laws of nature, every child born requires no act of law to
            establish the fact the child inherits through nature his/her father’s
            citizenship as well as his name (or even his property) through birth.
            This law of nature is also recognized by law of nations. Sen. Howard
            said the citizenship clause under the Fourteenth Amendment was by virtue
            of “natural law and national law.”

          • So, what is your point? As the 14th Amendment is presently understood and has been applied. You are a naturally born American if one of your parents is American. If that is not true, then McCain should never have run for President because he wasn’t born in the US, but the Panama Canal Zone. Rubio was born here and thus a natural born American. Cruz and McCain are natural born Americans because their parents were, even though they were born outside the US. Obama – was born in Hawaii and his mother was American, something over overlooked.

          • You really are learning and comprehending impaired. At birth a child is a citizen of their father’s country. Both cruz and obama’s mother’s had given up their US citizenship for a foreign. Neither of rubio’s parents were natural born citizens and this applies for office of president only. The generational clause that both parents of one running must be natural born US citizens for our protection. Surely even a troll is not so dense.

          • Neither Cruz’s mother nor Obama’s gave up their citizenship. Rubio was born here so he is a naturally born American. Both parents don’t have to be Americans. Don’t know where you got that from – another right wing nut job website?

          • Wrong, both gave up their citizenship and our forefathers were not right wing but loyal Americans like many of us who hold to what is right and good not your new age political correctness.

          • Wrong again under American law even if a parent renounces his or her citizenship as long as the child establishes a permeneat address herein the US before age I believe age 21. He or she is an American citizen. My next door neighbor went into the service in 1971, renounced his citzenship and became a naturalized German citizen, to my knowledge he has been.back to the US twice; once to introduce his son to his mother and to establish said permeneat address so that his son could make is own decision about his citizenship and the second time to bury his mother! So they whole Obama birther controversy is a right wing wetdream!!!!

          • To run for office of president one must be of two natural born citizens. This law has never changed. This is to protect us from outside influence or have allegiance to a foreign country.

          • Obama has yet to prove that he was born in Hawaii (Kenya still calls him a “native son”); His mother was not old enough to confer citizenship; and you’re confusing natural born citizenship with naturalization. The 2nd Amendment clearly distinguishes between two kinds of citizenship – one for the President to be elected at the time of the writing of the Constitution, and another (natural BORN) for all those to follow.

          • He has shown his full birth certificate. You are completely ignorant when it comes to the Constitution. The second amendment is “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
            His mother was 23 years old when her son was born. So how old do yo9u have to be? Again, do you believe that Cruz should not run for president since he is was clearly born in a foreign country? Did you oppose McCain running for the presidency since he was not born the US?

          • wrong he has shown a certificate of birth not a birth certificate not the same thing
            research it

          • He did eventually show the long form of his birth certificate; a certificate of birth is what a lot of states provide and it is the same. If not, then you need to remove every Hawaiian from the military for that is what they all show to prove they are Americans to join.

          • Wow, where does one try to begin, when you come up with your own spin (or that of the Democrats), with no examples or data to support it Truly scary that this country has progressives like you actually voting out of ignorance. I encourage everyone reading Mogan’s diatribe to find any semblance of truth in it.

          • Another delusional right wing nut.

          • That’s it, resort to name calling which seems to be the required response if you’re a libtard, without a clue as to how to defend yourself.

          • I apologizes to Marvinas2, but have you apologizes for your name calling?

          • Nope, but since you’re the one who started throwing the mud in 90% of your comments, and who doesn’t even know proper grammar (or is that simply spelling ignorance?), I doubt you would know when an apology is really due, or recognize one if it hit you in the face.

          • Nope. I end up typing to fast and then not checking. Sloppy of me at times and English was not originally my native language.

          • Rules for Radicals – Saul Alinski – …If you don’t have an argument, use ridicule!

          • Sorry for that but I am getting tired of people who are so ill informed and gullible when it comes to extreme right wing websites that identify themselves as journalism when they are anything but. So, I’m sorry to have said what I did.

          • Seems like a lot of people on this site have read Alinski

          • Obama and Hillary are both serious students of Alinski – Obama through his Canadian “godfather (?)” and mentor, Frank Marshall Davis; Hillary in College, where she became a personal friend of Alinski, wrote her thesis on him, and stayed in touch with him afterward. BO & HC seem to have learned their lessons well.

          • I always get his name wrong and it is Alinsky. Now, Hillary studied Alinsky and wrote her thesis on him. After all, he is recognized as an organizing genius. After all FreedomWorks provides copies of his books to their leadership and his tactics has been used by both liberals and conservatives. Dick Armey has given copies to his Tea Party. As for Obama, In the 80’s he worked for three years for the Developing Communities Project, which was influenced by Alinsky’s work, and he wrote an essay that was collected in a book memorializing Alinsky, and so, so what? Now enemies of Obama have emphasized more of connection between Obama and Alinsky, or rather over-emphasized but then ignore that many Republican leaders, Tea Party leaders read and use Alisnky’s tactics for organizing grassroots organizations. Another example is Gingrich, who has claimed that Alinsky was a major influence on Obama. Gingrich also equates Alinksy with “European Socialism.” That is idiotice because Alinsky was a native born American and was never a Socialist. In fact, Alinsky never joined any organization, including those he had created because he wanted to maintain his independency. And, getting back to Gingrich, his campaign for the nomination back in 2012 used Alinsky’s tactics.
            As for Davis, he wasn’t Obama’s godfather. He was a friend of his maternal grandfather. They had met in Hawaii although Davis and Obama’s grandfather were born in the same area. Obama mentions Davis in his book, In Dreams From My Father. Again, so what? Obama’s remembrance of Davis is not exactly flattering.

          • Progressives – the ones who worked for the civil rights movement? Progressives who helped women get the vote? Progressive who wanted to and helped to end segregation? Progressive who decided that there should be public school systems?

          • Really? You really believe this about Progressives? Read about the founding progressives and see what they really believed and exactly what you have been programmed into.

          • the auto would have saved itself obama care is the worst thing everput on the american
            public

          • Not really; it is proving to be a great success.

          • No; the American auto industry was in a death knell. No GM or Chrysler, and then all of the businesses that were tied to them would have gone down too. As for Obamacare, it turns out that it is a big success.

          • Very well written and full of absolute truth.

          • And don’t forget his persecution of the Christians in this country – pretty blatant!

          • What persecution? Christians control this country. Right now corporations can claim to be Christians and their Christian beliefs supersede those of their employees. If you are talking about the issue of companies having to do business with the LGBT community on their personal religious grounds, such as I don’t want to bake your wedding cake because I don’t want to participate in your wedding – then that was the same in the 50’s and 60’s not providing services to blacks because your church taught you that black people are the children of Cain. Or denying services to Jews because you were taught (also falsely) that the Jews killed Jesus. Besides how does a baker participate in a wedding? Got invited? Doubt it. Religious institutions have the right to discrminate, but secular businesses? Now has Obama ordered the torture of American Christians? No. Has he sent out his minions (love that term) to torture Christians, waterboard them? No.

          • Absolutely correct, Michael! But you will only get ignorant blather from mogan. He’s so Kool-Aid logged that he probably sloshes when he walks. He has nothing intelligent to say, so just ignore him. That will p-ss him off more than anything you can say. One thing these lefty lunatic lugnuts hate is being ignored!

          • as bad as the situation is, the man is not a black man, he is half white. and he is not African American either.

          • Thanks, Diane. A person who is half white and half black is a mulatto. This man is a Manchurian Candidate, pure and simple.

        • Michael Ackermann

          Can you tell me the “support” the current Dems have given to blacks? Just curious

        • You’re delusional.

        • Ignorance of the truth will cause the destruction of many a poor educated voter… There seems to be a lack of accountability within the vast majority of individuals…. I guess you could call it human nature, but the blame lies with each one of us who fails to stand for the truth. It is as simple as this – When you know the truth and you still accept the lies that others claim as being the truth such as the lies of abortion than the blood the abortionist has on his hands is also on your hands…… Or when you vote for someone when it has been proven he is not eligible to hold a certain office than you will be held accountable…. God will hold each individual accountable for the decisions they have made in this life… And for those that have accepted His Son, Yeshua as their LORD and SAVIOR there will be forgiveness….. BUT, for those that reject Yeshua their fate can be found in Leviticus 26:15-18 (KJV) And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant:
          I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.
          And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.
          And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.

          • Amen brother, too many today are taught God’s love without his discipline. This is misleading the masses. People are too busy running to and fro to study the Word for themselves to seek truth.

          • I don’t fault human nature, per se. I don’t find human beings naturally good or naturally evil. But perhaps lazy when it comes to ethics, morals and personal responsibility. We don’t teach virtues anymore. Ethics are fine but when you live by a code of ethics rather than virtues, ethics will lose out if enough pressure is put on a person. But if children are taught virtues, then the virtues that they are taught are kind of like being attached to their DNA.

          • Man has no real excuses for his behavior other than his ignorance in not seeking the truth of God’s Holy WORD. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Jeremiah 17:9 Without Christ the heart will seek to please it’s self and all the virtues taught us by our parents go out the door… But than what were the virtues of the parents if they didn’t know Christ….
            Sadly it is estimated that only 2% of the Christians have read through the Bible… But than again, look at the Pharisees and Sadducees who studied the first 5 Books of the Old Testament over and over and they missed recognizing their Messiah..
            There are none that do good compared to Christ, no not even one. We have all sinned and we all deserve death…. BUT in God’s Mercy He has made a way that we can be forgiven and be redeemed from the jaws of eternal death through the precious Blood of Yeshua….

      • We will see what hypnotic hold Sharpton and Jackson have on the black community.

        Ben Carson will get his time in front of the microphone, to break that Sharpton spell.

      • “Religion” and Christianity are two separate entities! Religion is man-made faith, while Christianity is faith in God. BIG DIFFERANCE!!

        • So where did the institutions and doctrines of Christianity come from? Human beings? So, you also hold that all other religions, such as Judaism, are the creation of human beings? Why, then, would Christianity be exempt?

          • The institutions and doctrines of Christianity come from God. The Jews believe this but they continue to believe in keeping the laws of the old testament and have not accepted Jesus as the Messiah. Our salvation as Christians depends on our belief that Jesus Christ , the son of God, died on the cross as an atonement for our sins. The islamists believe in God and Jesus, but took it a little farther than needed and added Mohammad as their profitt. The Christian bible tells us not to add or take away from God’s word! I was actually referring to people who call themselves “religious” and may only know ABOUT God but don’t have a personal relationship with Him! Just knowing about God and not following his word, changing it to fit your needs, or just living part of the word and ignoring the rest of His word maybe a religion, but it is not Christianity! There are so many religions that call itself “Christianity” but have changed the word or taken some out of it to make it fit their needs and wants, and that is what religion is!

          • Karen, keep it coming; you never know when your testimony about the Lord and His Word will break through to those who have fallen behind their faith and those who do not know Him.
            Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

          • Martin Randall Higley

            Excellent teaching of the difference between Christianity and religion. Once we accept Christ as our Savior it is wee who are to submit to God’s change in us and not for us to change His Will or Word to what we may like.

          • Christianity is the OPPOSITE of religion. Christianity is simply and eternal personal

            relationship with the living God, Jesus Christ by calling upon His name(Acts 2:21, 16:31;

            Romans 10:9,10,13), asking and receiving Him into your heart by faith(John 1:12).

            John 8:3. Religion will always INTERRUPT God. It will interrupt what He is doing, and it

            will interrupt His plans and the spreading of the gospel in the world’s harvest fields

            because it is fostered by Satan and has NO PART with the Lord.

            The Pharisees which started out right(under Ezra), had degenerated into an elitist clique

            which, to all outward appearance, was very reverant and holy but inwardly was corrupt,

            venal, and unspiritual. Religion, like the law, is the OPPOSITE of faith. Religion is filled

            with fervency, an outward piousness or set of externals which Jesus compared to an above

            ground tomb, saying it is “full of dead men’s bones, and full of uncleanness”(Matt. 23:27).

            And religion cares little for people. It’s interest is wrapped up in buildings, property, titles,

            money, position, and tradition forbidden by God(Matt. 15:3; Mark 7:9,13), legalism, and

            denominational expansion. People are but a necessary evil in religion’s execution of its own

            designs and purposes.

            Jesus said, “I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God

            before you”(Matt. 21:31). What a statement! And yet organized religion basically finds itself

            in this exact same position today. As a whole, organized religion sits in the same place as

            Simon the Pharisee. Religious SIN is the worse sin of all(behind the sin of unbelief, John

            3:18, 36), simply because it cannot see its sin AS sin; therefore, it cannot be forgiven.

            Religion has PRIDE in its foundation. PRIDE is always robed in self-deception and as a

            result, religious adherents have no consciousness of their sin. This is why it is so hard

            to reach the pious, self-righteous individuals. They cannot recognize their need for the

            Redeemer and ONLY Him. In fact, they tend to lift up their own self-righteousness, and

            by doing so, they insult the Lord of Glory. The Bible is harsh on self-righteousness as can

            be seen in Isaiah 64:6. Many people are following religions that will lead to DISAPPOINT-

            MENT. Because man made filthy religions are not totally based on the finished work and

            shed royal blood of Christ, they are FALSE and will NOT lead to heaven. Only Jesus, the

            eternal Son of God, can take us to the waters of life.

            The world has its religions, its programs, its plans, its values, but Christ witnessed that

            it is all EVIL(John 7:7).

            We must not be fooled by those who teach another way to God(Galatians 1:8). We must

            help others to see that trusting the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior is mans’ ONLY hope. Religion

            may INFORM and REFORM but only Christ can TRANSFORM(2Cor. 5:17).

          • Always the best information.

          • Greetings mallen. I’ve had that in my drafts for quite a while. Satan, as you know, comes as an angel of light(2Cor. 11:13-15) and is the author of religion which I believe is his number ONE weapon of deception.
            So many religionists believe they are Christians and are not. So many believe Christianity is a religion when TRUE Christianity is relationship.
            Someone in bondage to the SIN of religion is the hardest to win for Jesus Christ.

          • I have tried to get people to see the difference for a long time but they just don’t see it because the word “religion” is used for belief in any “god” but Christianity has the ONLY God and our relationship with Him is beyond description to those who do not believe. We can only know our Lord through the knowledge of His Word on a daily basis. It is always refreshing to read your posts.
            I Cor 16:13 Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men; be strong.

          • THANK you so much for your encouragement and we’re workers together(2Cor. 6:1). Religionists are fine until you hit their filthy religion and then they get vicious.
            I’ve asked them what a Christian is at his or her…CORE. All the answers were focused OUTWARDLY and the answer is so simple which could be backed by 5 verses.LOL
            YES, stand FIRM in the faith and contend for the faith(Jude 3) by exposing the works of darkness(Ephesians 5:11).

          • You are absolutely correct. Interesting you mentioned Jude; our pastor is teaching that book — it is so relevant to what is happening in our country at this time. Yes, and our churches are not teaching what the Bible says; mainly stories, emotionalism, programism, humanism and the social gospel. Believers do not know what God wants them to do; they only know what their church wants them to do. God’s grace is upon you.

          • Yep, the church is lukewarm and asleep because the pulpit is silent and asleep. It’s going to take either revival or persecution to wake it up.

          • Hahahaha

          • Is Satan the author of James 1:27?

          • The only religion God accepts is what’s defined in James 1:27 but not for salvation. The rest is bogus and man made.

          • edwinrad, you seem not to realize how confused you are. In the beginning of your comments, you say: “Christianity is the OPPOSITE of religion.” At the end you say: Religion may INFORM and REFORM but only Christ can TRANSFORM.” If, as you allege, “Christianity is the OPPOSITE of religion,” then by that “reasoning, Christianity would NOT “INFORM” or “REFORM,” since that function lies within the realm of “religion,” the alleged OPPOSITE of Christianity.

            Does not Christianity INFORM and REFORM? “You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” Jesus said that. That seems to have a lot to do with INFORMING and REFORMING, now doesn’t it?

          • TRUE Christianity is RELATIONSHIP, not religion. Yes, religion may inform and reform but when a person receives Jesus Christ by calling upon His name(Acts 2:21, 16:31; Romans 10:9,10,13), ask, and receive Him into their heart(John 1;12) by faith, then the Lord will start to TRANSFORM and make him or her a new creation from the inside out.

          • You just don’t pay attention, do you, edwinrad? Re-read my earlier comments to you and consider how you have used the term “OPPOSITE” and how it does not logically suit your concept of the alleged difference between “religion” (James 1) and Christianity. Either do that or continue being irrelevant; your choice, bud.

          • I can’t explain it any more easier. The only religion God accepts is found in James 1:27 but not for salvation which is a free gift by GRACE(Ephesians 2:8,9).
            TRUE Christianity is a relationship with Jesus Christ. Christianity is God working for man while religion is man attempting to gain acceptance from God by his works.
            Religion, like the law, is the opposite of faith the main thrust of the book of Galatians.

          • I have nowhere contended that those things described in James 1 are “works” that in any way earn salvation, edwinrad. What I am trying to penetrate your resistant consciousness with is simply that you and others have used the term as “religion” something evil and negative, whereas the teaching in James 1 makes no such case, nor does any other scripture. The term “works,” throughout the book of James refers to the good works of the Christian life, not to any kind of works of merit earning salvation. I believe you and I are agreed on that. But you and others too often employ a generalized and arbitrary use of the term “religion” that, as used, does not accord with the “religion” of James 1, and in the way you word your objections, you come across as generally disparaging “religion” as something to be avoided. That is a sloppy theological discourse that ought to be avoided, edwinrad.

            While driving along in rural north Georgia a few weeks ago, I saw a large prominent sign on the grounds of an attractive fundamentalist church’s building complex. It said “RELIGION KILLS” and of course it made no distinction between the religion of James 1 and whatever the sign was intended to signify. The current FAD, among self-described “spiritual” persons, of decrying “religion” is a misplaced and misleading pursuit that ought to be abandoned.

          • Well, you got that right. James is talking about living the Christian life and he’s talking to Christians.
            Christians all the time visit widows in their affliction etc. and that’s all James 1;27 is, a definition of pure religion. Anything that passes outside of that today is bogus. I truly believe because the devil comes as an angel of light(2Cor. 11:13-15) he takes a veneer of truth and manufactures man made religion as a weapon of DECEPTION. He uses man made religion as a barrier between man and Jesus Christ.

            WORKS. Many pastors shy away from James because it appears James is contradiction Paul on faith and works and he doesn’t.
            First, we’re saved by GRACE through FAITH. James address faith before men who can only see a persons faith BY THEIR WORKS.
            Romans 4:5. Paul addresses faith towards God who KNOWS the heart and doesn’t have to see works to know their faith.

          • You will find the more you try to engage edwinrad the more you’ll feel less engaged . It’s akin to banging your head against a brick wall , only to realize the headache you’ll feel only feels better than in comparison to the argument itself.

          • Tis all a crock

        • I love your response. You are so very correct and rarely do people know the difference!!!!

          • You have bought into the same load of nonsense as Karen. Read my reply to her.

          • We are not talking about being “religious” about doing God’s will for your life. We are talking about “religions”.
            Religions are the Devil’s Ace Trump. True Biblical Christianity is GRACE vs. the works of man as in all other beliefs or religions. Most churches today have become syncretistic: mixing the spiritual way of life with religion (humanism) and the Bible is not taught. Ecumenicalism has become the substitute to true Bible teaching. It includes humanism, relativity, atheism, religion, cults, State religion; it is not even close to what the Bible teaches about Christianity. Satan has set up counterfeit religions using some truths but mostly lies and those who do not know what the Bible teaches are gullible to those religions. Therefore; Christianity is not a religion; it is a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ through the knowledge of His Word since it is the “Mind of Christ” (I Cor 2:16). Religion takes away our focus on the Lord and places it on man and what man can do for self. The truth of the Word of God escapes the religious person.

        • You have that right.
          And I wish they would stop calling Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson Reverend.
          They’re about as reverend as the devil himself!!!!

        • What a Crock of shit. But this is the belief of all religions. “my religion is the only true religion”. Yes they are all true religions, yet they are all bullshit

        • Dead wrong. Read your Bible: James 1:27!

          The recent silliness claiming that religion is something to be shunned makes no sense in light of Biblical instruction.

          • You read James 1:26! It reads.. If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. Then read your verse! James 1:27… Pure religion (Christianity) and undefiled(without fault: this means he doesn’t add to or take away from God’s word)before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affiction, AND to keep himself unspotted FROM THE WORLD.
            You need to read the book of Jude! It is only one chapter but is very powerful and I hope you get it!

          • You are so very correct. My pastor is teaching the Book of Jude and it is so relevant to our day.

          • I am intimately familiar with the teaching in the book of James concerning “religion.” And it is abundantly clear that James is in no way disparaging “religion.” It is you and other latter-day tamperers with the Word of God who have made “religion” a pejorative term. Look at that verse you quoted:” If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.” What is condemned here is not religion, but VAIN religion. True religion, according to James, is seen in that man who DOES bridle his tongue and who, as described in the next verse, (1) “visits the fatherless and the widows in their affliction.” and (2) “keeps [him]self unspotted from the world.” How dare, then anyone propound a definition of “religion” that transmogrifies it into an unholy thing?!

            I hear it all the time : “I’m spiritual, but I’m not religious.” This is the language of Ashdod! This is not Bible stuff; this is playing worst than fast and loose with the Word. Those who claim loyalty to the scriptures, but then reject “religion,” set at naught the scriptural connotation of “religion” as clearly set forth in James 1. To reject “religion” is to reject the Godly instruction to keep oneself unspotted from the world and to care for orphans and widows. Condemn vain religion if you must condemn something, but avoid those harsh condemnatory statements classify “religion” as a thing to be abhorred and avoided..

            Karen, above you made this dogmatic and all-subsuming declaration: “Religion” and Christianity are two separate entities! Religion is man-made faith, while Christianity is faith in God. BIG DIFFERANCE [sic]!!”

            The religion James describes is by no means a “man-made faith.” James is describing the kind of RELIGION that the CHRISTIAN must embrace! You and others, Karen, need to be much more careful in your choices of the words and terms with which you dissert in matters of RELIGION!with the vocabularies you select with which to indict those

          • I think it is YOU who must go back and read the scripture. The bible said in James 1:26 If any man among you SEEM to be religious,(try to ACT like they are Christian)and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s “religion” is in vain.(by following a false religion) James 1:27 Pure religion(CHRISTIANITY) and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, AND to keep himself unspotted from the world. Don’t you understand that man has added to and taken away from God’s word and made it a “religion”, therefore “Pure religion” (Christianity) is not the same as religion (Buddhism, islam, atheism, Satanism, etc), THEREFORE, you can follow “religion” which can send you to hell, and I will follow Christianity which according to scripture, by accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior, repenting of my sins, and following the words/teaching of the bible, I am assured a home in Heaven for eternity.

          • James was not writing about Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, Satanists, etc., Karen. He was writing to and about those in the churches among the Jews (“twelve tribes which are of the Dispersion”–See James 1:1). Those non-Christian beliefs you listed were not his concern in James1:27. You say that you can be saved by “accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior, repenting of my sins, and following the words/teaching of the bible….”[sic]. If by including here “following the words/teaching of the bible….,” you are describing something a saved person does following his/her salvation, then are you not teaching salvation by works? Are you a believer in “once-saved–always saved” Karen?
            If so, then that business of post-salvation “following the words/teaching of the Bible” (note capital “B”)does not belong in your list of things necessary for salvation. Just kinda guessing at your theology, Karen; I am not sure just how messed up it actually is.

          • Yes, I know that he was talking about the “JEWS” but man (The Jews) in this scripture, even they wanted to change what was required of them and follow their own “religion”! I didn’t say anything about salvation I said “accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior, repenting of my sins, and following the words/teaching of the bible” is what a Christian does! This is what we are commanded to do! And NO I don’t believe in Salvation by works! Then what, only the richest(paying their way), the most praying(praying their way),or most giving, or least sinful would get into heaven? What would be the reason for Jesus being crucified on the cross, and before that, yearly animal sacrifices? If you would learn to read what is written and not what you think is written, I didn’t even mention salvation , I was talking about Christianity! Salvation is the first step one must take , but salvation in itself and not repentance of sin and studying the bible along with fellowship with the Lord (prayer), makes a true Christian. It makes one wonder if salvation (accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior) was really received if one doesn’t comply with the rest (repentance and studying/living the Word). If truly save, one becomes a New creature in Christ, the old life is cast away and a new one should take its place. Salvation without change is questionable!

        • Carson’s CULT religion, Seventh-Day Adventism is MAN-MADE. Here is the straight skinny on the heretic who founded Carson’s CULT:

          http://www.nonsda.org/study10.shtml

          FACT: The Seventh-Day Adventists teach that the “mark of the beast” in the Book of Revelation is the practice of meeting for worship on Sunday, instead of on the sabbath day–Saturday. They teach that those Christians who meet on Sunday will not be among those who will be saved (See Revelation 20:4). This is a major heretical doctrine of the Seventh Day Adventist CULT.

      • Kenneth Van Antwerp

        The same here. Has any one of us ever heard of where they went school or got their degrees from.

    • I think it is time to repeal the exempt-tax status for churches in
      this country. If religious ideologies and church doctrine are going to
      drive public policy, then they are considered politically active and not
      under the umbrella of separation of church and state, therefore they
      should be taxed like every other organization. When the Christian
      churches offer this country that kind of political influence that rebels
      against established laws, then they are setting the stage for a
      recognized state religion.

      This continued onslaught by the
      Christian Right and those they have deceitfully gained as allies must be
      taxed and taxed immediately. If you believe we need to remove the
      tax-exemption status of Christian churches, write your Congressman today
      and make it an issue that you would be willing to push come election
      time. This is no idle threat, Christians, many are gathering to push
      against you for this to happen. Be careful where you tread with your
      doctrines and influence. Fight the Anti-Abortion crowd everywhere they
      dare to speak. Do not back down until they are silenced. That is all I
      have to say, other than fight this Christian movement as hard as you
      can, before they push their religious notions on us all and usurp the
      right for a woman to choose and the right to control over her own body.

      • Thank you for your opinion that if I kill an unborn child which I conceived, it is murder, if a woman, who was an equal participant in that conception kills that unborn child, it is “control over her own body”. If that child is given birth, as the father, I am then responsible for child support for the next 18 years, so that “fetal tissue” is a living human.. not the property of the woman carrying it. Sorry sweet cheeks, but you can’t have it both ways. Law has to apply equally to all parties to be fair law.. either I get to kill those babies just like women, without being charged with murder, or you women have to be charged with murder for killing that child.. WHICH IS IT?

        BTW, you better go read the Constitution and understand exactly what it says about church and state.. you don’t quite have it right, so you very obviously don’t understand what it says. Government can not Establish a State Religion. Nothing more.

        • You are confusing a fetus with a child that has drawn its first independent breath outside the womb. Which is both the medical and legal definition.

          Your understanding of the Constitution gives religious institutions the right to be politically active and remain tax exempt. Mine says if they politicize from the pulpit and contribute money or in kind to politicians they should lose the tax exempt status. As a side note that exemption should not extend to jet planes, luxury “parsonages” and “vacations.”

          And your “Sorry sweet cheeks” remark identifies you as a misogynist pig.

          • Ohhhhhh “sweet cheeks” my feelings are so hurt when a murder calls me a “misogynist pig”.. yah sure..

            Life begins at conception, not at first breath, “sweet cheeks”.. that life draws oxygen via the umbilical cord just the same as it does outside the womb, “sweet cheeks” so it is a living breathing human, not “fetal tissue”.

            Ever talk to a woman who had a miscarriage? She will ALWAYS say “I lost my baby” not “I lost some fetal tissue”.

            Watched the video of Planned Parenthood abortion doctors? How is it they talk about “aborting fetal tissue” in one sentence and in the next talk about selling “hearts, lungs, brains, and legs” in the next sentence? They know it is a human person, because they are selling “human parts”..

            So “sweet cheeks” go sell your liberal feminazi bullshit down the hall, I’m not buying it.

            Now grab your ample ass and let’s talk about the Constitution, which you apparently never read, and certainly don’t understand.

            Go read the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights, then come back and show me where it says that anyone in a pulpit does NOT have the right to say what ever they want, to WHOEVER they want, ABOUT WHAT EVER they want, OK.. Prove it “sweet cheeks”.

            You seem to think killing citizens is OK as long as they are not breathing air instead of oxygen rich anatomic fluid.

            AND you seem to be so filled with hate for any and all religions that you believe they are required to “shut up” and be poor, because you will it to be..

            Guess what “sweet cheeks” it isn’t happening for you.. not now.. not ever.. pull up your big girl panties and get over yourself…

            BTW, “sweet cheeks” is what all the bull dikes call the “new girls” at the prison I used to work at… so I guess they are the “misogynist pigs” you are looking for..

            Get real, get a life.

          • Well done!!!

          • Thank you..

            Some days, you just have to “get in touch with your inner Trump” and say what you really believe when confronted by a self blinded useful idiot.

          • I know what you’re saying. I’ve been known to do the same thing. But heck, you can only take so much of that crap.

          • Continue to wallow in the shite of your hatred for anyone who doesn’t climb on your bandwagon of hate and loathing, you are beyond redemption.

            Never, ever refer to yourself as a Xian and a defender of the faith as you are the exact opposite.

            Add me to your list of “people not worth responding to.” Do yourself, and your blood pressure a favor.

          • Hey there “sweet cheeks”….. I don’t get high blood pressure, I give it… sounds like you got what I gave you doesn’t it.. hahaha..

            Tell me “sweet cheeks” what is a “Xian”? Any follower of Christ uses the proper name. I suppose you heathen pagan Satan worshipers need to denigrate others so you will feel important..
            As for myself, I’m a happy Born Again Buddhist.
            As for you ever getting on my “do not respond list”, ain’t happening “sweet cheeks”.. you are exactly the kind of baby murdering individual that I will always confront.

          • Both the Medical and the Legal definition of when life starts are just guesses…

            What if they are wrong? It seems you are willing to that that chance.

            Those that are pro life are not willing to take that chance.

          • “Not willing to take that chance.” But willing to sacrifice a living woman in order for her to continue a pregnancy that will take her life. As long as conservatives support candidates who place no value on the life of a living woman there is a majority that will “not take that chance.”

          • “Willing to sacrifice a living woman in order for her to continue a pregnancy” happens less than 1% of the time.

            That means 99% of the time the woman is not sacrificing anything, other than convenience.

            So, What the hell are you talking about? You got zero morals.

          • So, that 1% is disposable?

          • No, the 1% has a valid excuse…. The other 99% is risking the fact that an abortion is killing without justification.

            And the real number is actually around .001% of all abortions are justifiable because the Mothers health is in danger.

          • That means you will not vote for any of the potential GOP candidates who say, “no abortion for any reason-even the life of the mother,” even if that is the .001% you claim are legitimate.

          • No, what that means is that of the 730322 abortions done in 2011 only about 7 of them are performed to save the Mothers life.

            The rest were done for convenience, or free sex…. That says a very sad thing about your morals.

          • What is the source of your statistic? Might be more believable if you provided a reliable source.

            How many pregnancies have you had?
            How many babies have you been delivered of?
            How many children have you fathered?
            How many did you support to age 18?
            Do you use birth control?

          • I call “liberal bullshit”.

            Optional murder of your unborn living child for the “convenience” of not having to ever be a responsible parent and raising that child is not “taking a chance with the mothers life”, or is that to complex for you?

            58,000,000 children murdered through abortion since Row v Wade, by using “abortion for convenience”.. That is over 3,000 citizens killed EACH DAY 7 days a week for 40 years… To complex for you?

            Interesting, isn’t it, that every woman who is “pro abortion” had a mother who was “anti abortion” …. or she would NOT BE ALIVE.
            Are you useless Fetal material now? Or just a”useless” baby killer.

            Perhaps, society would be better served by saving the baby and putting the aborting mother to death, since she, and those who conduct the murder are willing killers.

            Think on that. Have you killed yet today “homegirl”? Look up the legal term “Mens Rae” … you have already had the thought .. did you act on it yet?

          • Please do not refer to the tiny baby as unborn. That is the killer’s terminology. The best term for the tiny baby is simply UNDELIVERED, not unborn. Thank you very much for your support for tiny undelivered babies and may Jesus bless you abundantly.

          • Being a fool is a choice. Therapeutic abortions will always be an option. Woman are whores now and using abortion in lieu of birth control. A soul is present at conception. It is murder of our most helpless and innocent. Any woman who would put her life over that of her child does not deserve to be a mother. We are murdering our future, while allowing our country to be filled with foreigners who do not abort their young and have eight to ten children each to destroy us and we are fools. Do the math. We are destroying ourselves and any future by being selfish and stupid. You my child are a perfect example.

          • “Woman are whores now and using abortion in lieu of birth control.” What do you call men who don’t use birth control?

          • Were you raised by dogs? A woman is blessed with the ability to carry a new life and with it comes responsibility. We are called to a higher standard but now want to act like men? Any woman who does not have a natural love for her unborn child is messed up. Women such as you are teaching our young girls to act like sluts to not be accountable or have any natural love. It is all about you and your selfish, self centered care about nothing or no one but what you want attitude. You are a disgrace to women everywhere. May God have mercy on your soul for you will answer on judgement day to every soul you mislead to murder for convenience. I truly don’t understand how any woman does not love their child from the moment they know they exist. I was raped and wrestled with what I would do if pregnant. I realized I could not kill it for the baby was innocent and how it was conceived was not an issue. But then I live with integrity and accountability as best I can in the flesh for none of us are without sin. Never could I commit premeditated murder against an innocent helpless baby.

          • “I was raped and wrestled with
            what I would do if pregnant. I
            realized I could not kill it for the
            baby was innocent and how it was
            conceived was not an issue.” How did you explain to that child that it was conceived by a rapist? Or did you put the child up for adoption? Or did the hospital where you were treated take steps to prevent implantation at the time?

            You still haven’t answered the question “What do you call men who don’t use birth control?”

          • I was not pregnant from the rape, thought that was obvious by the if. I believe the Biblical term is whore monger. Point and fact women are blessed to carry life therefore the burden is on us to be accountable and not act like bitch dogs. Why do you just want to blame someone else? To make yourself feel better? Women have forgotten their blessings and training up their young to have no sense of what it means to be female. As to how I would have explained rape had a child been conceived I can’t answer for sure but more than likely I would never have told them anything but I loved them and wanted them from the moment I became pregnant. When they ask about a father I would most likely tell them I sent them away for I am an adult and would take responsibility and never say anything to hurt my child.

          • Direct cut and paste quote from your post, note it does not read “If I
            was raped”- “I was raped and wrestled with what I would do if pregnant.”

            You would not have told the child the truth. Just as you did not tell the truth in your “rape” story.
            There is no common usage for men who do not use condoms-maybe “rabid dog” is fitting but you should be 50/50 in your criticism of unprotected sex outside of marriage. “Whore monger” is a pimp!

          • IF PREGNANT, obvious you just want to argue and hate men.
            A woman bears the burden of opening her legs unless it is a crime. Look up whore monger in the Biblical meaning not your new age definition. God blessed women with more restraint but society has trained it out of them. Wow, you would choose to mess a child up so you could be a victim for life rather than protect them. We are to love our children more than ourselves but that is lost on many today. Dr Carson’s mother did not tell him she could not really check his homework because she had little schooling. She knew a kid would use that to get by with slacking. She pushed her boys to do their best always and make no excuses. You know nothing of the nature of children.

          • A whore-monger is not a pimp. A whore-monger is a sexually promiscuous person who has sex with whores. In modern society, a whore-monger can either be a male or female.

          • I follow that both men and women can be “whore-mongers.” Does that make women who have sex outside of marriage “whore-mongers?”

          • No one should be having sex outside of marriage. Period. Abstinence saves lives.

          • Homegirl also seems to be ignoring the fact that Planned Parenthood was founded for the purpose of eliminating the black race through abortion – it had nothing to do with women’s health.

          • Correct,

          • if a woman can become pregnant by the normal method her body is designed for this
            how can this become life threatning for her I think in most cases she just does not want to accept the responsability and takes the easy way out

          • You are entitled to your opinion but not to power over what a woman decides. Thanks to the Supreme Court of the USA.

            When you get pregnant, a miracle, you can do as you choose, until then any woman who becomes pregnant can also make her own choice.

          • If that case ever did arise, I believe that a loving mother would happily lay down her life for her child.

            Plus, this doctor who once performed abortions now thinks they are completely unnecessary in the situation you present.

            That http://afterabortion.org/2014/doctors-abortion-not-necessary-to-save-mothers-lives/

          • DNA is evident at the time of conception. Every living thing is identified by this miracle signature. If you believe God is the Creator than man’s DNA is Gods since we as humans are created in His image. Either one believes this or denies God. Those that support abortion has put themselves above God. This is idolatry and is against Gods Law.

          • Well that lets me off your hook as I do not believe in any mythical sky being, including your God.

          • I could tell and I’m sorry to read it.

          • When you are kneeling before Him, you will regret that statement. And you will confess Him as Lord, to the glory of God the Father, whether you believe in Jesus or not.

          • On Rightwing Christians: Have you noticed something odd about this Ashley Madison scandal?

            On Rightwing Christians: Have you noticed something odd about this Ashley Madison scandal?

            by SemDem

            Since the Ashley Madison scandal broke, I have noticed a distinct lack of condemnation from you rightwing christians.

            Where are all the youtube hate videos against the subscribers practicing adultery?

            Where are the droves of protestors picketing AshleyMadison.com like Planned Parenthood?

            It’s pretty clear where Jesus stands with cheating on your spouse.
            In case you missed the Commandment of “Thou shalt not covet they
            neighbor’s wife”, Jesus laid it out:

            In Mathew 5:27-30 he said if you even look at another woman with
            desire, then cut out your eye because it’s better to “lose one of your
            members than to have your whole body go to hell”.

            Lust > Cheat > Hell. Pretty straightforward. There were other
            things He directly condemned, like divorce. Yet He was most clear on His
            biggest pet peeve: excess wealth.

            Yet those are three things that today’s rightwing Christian doesn’t care about.
            Massive greed? That’s called “prosperity gospel” now. The parable of Lazarus? They root for the rich guy in hell.

            Divorce? Adultery? Child Molestation? whoopsey-daisies. No big whoop.

            But gays and abortions? That’s where they burst arteries! Two
            issues Jesus said NOTHING about. Both of those things existed during His
            time. If they are the epitome of evil, you’d think they’d at least
            warrant a mention. But nothing.

            So what about actual sins that are specifically mentioned and given no leeway at all in the Bible? Meh.

            In fact, on Mike Huckabee’s old cheesy talk show five years ago he
            featured Ashley Madison’s CEO to tell “his side” of the story. Yes,
            Mike disagreed with what Ashley Madison was doing but then added “I could be wrong”.

            There is no ambiguity in the Bible about adultery. And yet, while
            the Bible says nothing about abortion, here is Huckabee defending
            Paraguay’s awful decision to force an 11-year old raped by her
            stepfather to bear a child. Here is a man who said he would not be
            against using federal troops to stop women from getting abortions! Here
            is a man calling for mass arrests over gay marriage. This is the same
            guy who convulsed with anger over gays being allowed to be happy.

            In fact, Santorum, Huckabee, Cruz, et. al have said nothing about
            the AshleyMadison scandal or a word of condemnation to their millions
            of subscribers. Maybe they are worried about alienating some
            supporters, but that means their virulent rants on nonissues become even
            more meaningless. It’s almost like they are full of something….

            Clearly there is no righteous, religious hate espoused for those who
            abuse or leave their marriages like there is for those who are in
            stable, homosexual relationships. Despite what the Bible says, these
            guys SWEAR to me that they know exactly who Jesus hates.

            And I find it absolutely amazing that it always happens to coincide with their preconceived prejudices. Go figure.

            I’ll bet if Jesus said to love their enemies, they’d find a way around it. (Oh wait…)

            So you will have to excuse me when I roll my eyes over your next meltdown. Where is the indignant condemnation now?

            Where is your moral outrage against these sinners?

            You’ll rally like crazy against things not even in the Bible, but ignore and stay silent about AshleyMadison.

            I guess it’s hard to condemn something that you probably have an account with.

          • It doesn’t matter fetus or baby. It is a human being from the get go. The chromosones in ONE living cell says so. You idiots.You can’t become pregnant with anything else!That TISSUE, or whatever else you want to call it to soothe your shellfish mind,is a human just like you!

          • That tiny baby is alive in the womb! They move, they feel stress, they cry, they hear, they see, they smile, they frown, they even develop a taste for certain foods! Twin babies even hold hands, this has all be seen and documented in the womb. How can anyone be so soulless, heartless, and cruel to kill the most innocent, precious, and defenseless amongst us?

      • What a load of PC crap.

        • Maybe, but it is my right to believe and speak as I choose. So live with it.

          • Just saying what you believe and speak is a load of crap.

            So live with it.

            You have made a choice to stay asleep… Those that pretend to be asleep can not be woken.

          • I hope this means you will no longer respond to my Constitutional and legal rights to post my beliefs. You have your opinions and I have mine and “never the twain shall meet.”

          • God is a reality and on judgement day when these women face the children they murdered to answer why they were not loved, and the one person who was to protect them in life killed their flesh bodies and threw them in the garbage like trash will bring huge regret. This life is but a breath compared to eternity. Godless women will be blotted out which is as if they never existed. Their own mothers will not remember their faces. If these women have other children do they tell them they aborted two but kept the one? Does that one fear their mothers for the murderers they are to never trust them completely? Just wondering.

          • “Jesus Saves”

      • You demon-possessed, insane, satanic, self-absorbed, self-indulgent psychopath!!!. That tiny baby is not your body — you sick, sadistic, heartless, haughty, cold-blooded, barbarous butcher! Abortion is intentional, planned, premeditated MURDER. 1 John 3:15 — No murderer has eternal life within them! The Lord will not hold them guiltless who shed innocent blood! Do you really think that God will not avenge these tiny babies whose innocent blood was shed by sick, self-absorbed, satanic sickos? I assure you that He will avenge their innocent blood! You have murder in your heart! You better get down on your face and beg Jesus Christ to forgive you before you die and kneel before Him with innocent blood on your hands! This country is polluted with those who have murder and hate in their heart and innocent blood on their hands! This country has turned their back on Jesus Christ who is God, and seek after and worship filthy idolatrous money! Unless this country openly repents by the millions, it shall soon taste the fiery judgement of Jesus Christ!!!

    • I would say it is only about 40% that are Christians, the other 40% are religious bigots. Sadly to many state and federal representatives put their religious faith in their back pocket, when interacting with the public. They have sat God’s laws aside as being outdated or not socially accepted, and now live by man’s laws. A hand full of Satan’s workers had chased God out of every public and some private places, with a penalty if God name is mentioned. MAHB001; the Republicans are also Godless, and racist. It is not the Democrats that is trying to keep non-white from voting in 29 States. And this issue is something that Dr.Carson as black man fail to mention.

    • You’re giving the dems far more credit than I would, to say that 80% of them are Christians! I am one, and I know that I am one, although I’m far from perfect! I would honestly say that the true figure, and this is just an estimate on my part, is more like 50 % of the dems who are actually Christians. Only God knows for sure, but when I see dems take the positions that they do, I doubt that more than about 50% are truly Christians! I’ll be very curious to see what the numbers look like when I get to Heaven! I’ll tell you this right now. Obama will not be there, nor will Pelosi, nor will either of the Clintons!

      • Now what are the Democrats are doing that is nonChristian? Taking prayer out of school – that was the Supreme Court and they were right. Not just about praying to the god of three religions only, but for a lot of Americans, their religions don’t include prayers. Plus, our wall of separation is for freedom of religion but also freedom from religion. Which party has a history of focusing on the poor, the needy, and which party believes that those who are poor are also immoral and have a lack of ethics? Not the Democrats, but Republicans who have read Ayn Rand, who also believed that the middle class are moochers and are also without any morality. Kind of the middle class represents those who are ethically mediocre, which is why they are not job makers, the 1%.

        • You wrote “Plus, our wall of separation is for freedom of religion but also freedom from religion.” That is nowhere in the U. S. Constitution but what is written in the atheistic communist USSR Constitution. That anti-God atheistic proclamation and practice resulted in the murder of thousands of Christian bishops and priests and the imprisonment of millions of Christians in soviet concentration camps! It is people with satanic, atheistic, imprisoning beliefs like yours who have destroyed this country! It has directly lead to the murder of 60,000,000 million tiny babies in the womb! The First Amendment of the U. S. Constitution was created to protect American citizens in their freedom to practice and worship one’s religion from secular interference! You are proclaiming antichrist lies! As Jesus Christ who is God Almighty told the pharisees and sadducees, the same applies to you — “You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of lies.” You need to repent, turn from your satanic wickedness, quit you spreading of your filthy anti-christ, lies, and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior before you end up in the eternal lake of fire!

    • Did you forget , that at the last DNC, they denounced GOD.

      • There is NO doubt that the Democrats are controlled by the Godless. A huge percentage of the delegates are Godless, it was the entire party that I was talking about.

    • Yes, and I thank GOD that Dr.Carson has actually said what so many of us are thinking!

    • Dexter L. Wilson

      I think you need to take a bigger look about personal relationships between God through Jesus Christ the Son. Many will say Lord Lord we did so and so in your name. You might find 10% of the Democrats may actually have that relationship but when you kill babies and want prayer out of the public schools and say same sex marriage is right, you will find yourself at odds with the Savior, who is calling these who are caught up in same sex addiction to be delivered as if you read your Bible where it said and so were ( past tense) some of you. Remember Jesus remarked, “I never Knew you.” You can call yourself a Christian but how many have the personal relationship with Jesus that is required. Very few will be found in the Democrat Party. If you want to see a group that reflects that relationship, look at the Republican Party of Texas. It may be 56% in that party that have that special relationship with Jesus and know what Christian really is.

  3. I certainly don’t like the country is going and I do believe dr carson has a valid point. are we getting better? No we are not. Can we do better? Well…..this regime is not working very well now is it?

    • Actually, it is.

      • Only if you are a criminal, think you do not have to earn anything (just ask nanny government to take it away from someone else and give it to you a.k.a. Communism), think the law is for everyone but you, love sharia law and hate the Constitution, approve of ripping babies apart in their mothers wombs and selling their organs, etc.

        • That’s all pretty much BS. Right wing talking points. Are you planning on using Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid? If so, welcome to socialism. Did you have a public education? Welcome to socialism. The threat of Shri’ah law coming to the US is promoted by those who make their living as fearmongers. It will never happens. Even most Muslim countries don’t follow Shari’ah completely. As for abortion, I believe it is the woman’s choice and outsiders, i.e., the government shouldn’t interfere. Abortions are legal and Constitutional. Want to change that – change the laws of the country so that abortions are illegal, and that would mean all forms. Will that happen? Now, people are now more choice than anti choice. Most people have a more favorable view of Planned Parenthood than the NRA.

  4. Ted Cruz is a believer and unafraid to share his faith or speak about God. The only way to save 5hthis nation is for US to turn back to God. I remember the Reagan years. A very bright time for our nation.
    Dr. Ben is spot on. I enjoy listening to him and welcome his opinion. The lbgt and abortion ships may have sailed but they can be sunk.

    • We no longer enforce our laws which are to protect us. I love Cruz but he should not be on a ballot. We have three running for president because we let one foreigner in our office. Time to enforce our laws and stop acting like spoiled children. Anyone running for president or vice president only must have two natural born citizen parents. This generational law has been in place since our forefathers set up laws. We argue and act too dumb to understand so we allowed a foreigner in our office to destroy us. We can’t continue unless we want our country divided up as is being done now to take us down. We live by discipline and laws or we fall as a people.

      • Cruz is running legally but Marco unfortunately, is not considered a Citizen by birth. At was stated on the news, he was born in 1971 and the parents were not citizens until 1975. If these date are not the truth, then I suggest he straighten them out so the press will allow him to continue as I feel he is of value to this great nation that he loves.

        • Cruz was born a Canadian citizen complete with Canadian birth certificate. Both his parents gave up their birth country citizenship for Canadian years before Cruz was born. His father fought for Castro and he was raised with a communist influence from his grandparents. His wife worked for obama’s advisers. He is not by our laws legally on a ballot.

          • My bad as I didn’t dig deep enough and I thank you for the correction

          • Not your fault for when he went on the ballot all this information was wiped from the internet. His Canadian birth certificate was posted online at one time. His mother’s information is unavailable now for that was his only claim to being connected to the US. His parents both gave up their citizenship at the same time. We are being manipulated.

          • At the age of 78 I am sick of seeing what freedom I grew up in and my service to this country now being destroyed by the greedy bastards that want it all and don’t give a damn, who takes the fall. Thanks for the info.

          • I also am of a certain age and feel as you do. Younger ones don’t even see what we have lost. Such a shame…….

          • Not true. Cruz was born in Canada but his mother was an American citizen and so he is American who was born abroad. So, there is not problem there. Otherwise, McCain could not have been president since he was born in the Canal zone. As for Rubio, he was born in the US and thus an American citizen, so no problem there. As for Obama, he was born in Hawaii, unless you believe that every Hawaiian birth certificate is a fraud. Besides, his mother was American, so natural born also. So, it is really moronic to see Obama as a foreigner. Sorry, Obama hates and racists, but he is a natural born American.

          • Now the truth is you do not research but take the opinion of what others tell you. I researched obama for years even before he took office and information changed or disappeared. He was raised during his formative years in a muslim country, by a muslim family and was schooled in islam. Believe the lies for you have love only for yourself and no one or anything else in this life. A natural born citizen has natural born parents but the issue has been lied about so much and small minds such as yourself believe it. Our forefathers set up these laws for our protection but they are ignored.

    • Yes, I know Ted Cruz and Ben Carson are true Christians and I believe that Donald Trump is also, but is working a different strategy before announcing more. If any of these three get in there, I believe that we have some chance of doing better and not worse.

  5. The big problem we have in this country has that we allowed 1% of the population to remove God from the public square and it has led to a selfish self centered population that does not want ANY accountability or responsibility for our actions!! With NO GOD there is no consequences to deal with. BUT that does mean there is NO GOD it is a delusion that IS haunting us today not only in secular society but the churches have become PC to not be controversial!!!!

    • Well said!

    • Most people who live selfish lives are not worried about God, but worried about getting caught. Remember, close to 30% of Americans are not Christians, but Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Daoists, Muslims and members of all of the other great religions of the world. I take it from your position that you believe that their beliefs don’t matter, but only those of Christian Americans.

      • God is our creator and only salvation. We have allowed those of a false god in our midst and they will be purged and sent back where they came from soon. God is a reality not a religion.

      • Morgan, I beg your pardon! Jews believe in God. Are you unaware that Christianity was founded on Judaism? Please, do SOME research.

        • Mogan. Jews believe in the same god, but they reject that God has a biological son and reject the Christian doctrine of the Trinity. A lot of what Jews believe, Christians don’t and vice versa. Sp for Judaism today, most Jews do not believe in an afterlife; that the fetus is a human being, that people have souls and the existence of Satan. All branches of Judaism have no objections to abortion, with Reform Judaism taking the position that the woman has a right to an abortion, whether for physical, mental or economic well being.

          Don’t preach to me about research. I’m a NT Ph.D. who specializes in the origins of Christianity, in particular the time when Christians were actually Jews. I also have three masters degrees in NT, Hebrew Bible, Near Eastern Archaeology and Comparative Religion.

          • Hmmmph, three pieces of toilet paper makes you “smart”! LOL

          • I always love juvenile remarks from the uneducated. I assume you say the same thing to your surgeon? Your medical degrees are just toilet paper? Tell that to your lawyer the next time you are in trouble with the law or your CPA. By the way, my degrees didn’t make me smart, but I had to be smart to get into graduate programs that only accepted 1-3% of applicants, and then I got my graduate degrees while many fellow students didn’t make it.

          • And you assume I’m uneducated? I have a couple of pieces of “toilet paper” myself then I found out that real life does not match up with the propaganda that was force fed to me.

          • Man of wisdom.

          • And where from? High school? Junior college? ITT school of technology?

          • Hm! doesn’t look as though they taught you much grammar in all of those courses! There are many sects of Jews, w/many different beliefs, which was true, even in Jesus’ day. Even David recognized that a baby was a soul, from the day of conception. Just as there are different sects of Jews, there are different sects of Messianic Jews. The Jews in Israel are going back to doing the sacrifices for their sins. They already have a “model” temple set up in a manner which can be moved to Jerusalem, when the time comes. The “priests” are already in training for that time.

          • From what fantasy did you get all of this. There are four major branches of Judaism today: Reform, Orthodox Conservative and Reconstructionist. Thee is much that they agree and much that they don’t. In Jesus’ day, you had a many Jewish sects with the major ones being the Pharisees, Sadducees, and the Essenes. We know the names of about 12 more, but only by name. In additional, Jews living in the Diaspora were influenced by Greco-Roman philosophers, which is why the author of the Wisdom of Solomon believed in reincarnation, just like Plato, and attempted to explain the miracles of the Exodus by making use of Epicureanism an other Hellenistic philosophies.

            Now, getting back to Messianic Jews, if they believe that Jesus is the Messiah and that the path to God and salvation is through God’s son, then they are Christians, no longer religiously Jews. There is a model of the temple that you can see when you visit Jerusalem but there is attempt to rebuild the Temple. No one is doing sacrifices because there is no temple, no altar and especially no priesthood. I don’t know where you get any of that information, but your sources need to be on their medications. How do I know this? Because I live in Jerusalem for 3 months every year, and have been doing so for about 30 years.

            David did not believe a baby has a soul because as an Israelite, he didn’t believe in souls. That is a Christian interpretation of passages concerning David. What Israelites believed is that everyone has her or her nephesh, which is your breath but can also mean life, blood, emotions, and person, among others. And every living creature has a nephesh. That is why you can talk about a living being as a live nephesh, or in Hebrew you can can say ‘my nephesh’ instead of ‘I.’

          • My g.daughter is Messianic Jew, as is my g.son’s fiancee.Her 1/2 sister just returned from Israel & is in the process of moving there. I receive daily lessons from a Messianic rabbi. There are 2 different groups of Messianic Jews w/different beliefs, right here in my area, according to their own web-sites. I have seen pics, from a Messianic site, of the temple model, showing pics of the young priests in training, & the requirements (being from the tribe of Levi) to become one. It shows the altar, & states they are preparing to start the sacrifices again.The model is designed so they can break it down & move it quickly to the site of the original temple, when they can take possession of the land, which they feel will be soon. This is why they are preparing their priests-NOW. I have also talked w/a Messianic Jewish rabbi.I am part Jewish, my g.daughter’s mother-in-law is 99% Jewish. I have a lot to learn, but my husband was a Hebrew scholar & when he was tested for entry for his masters, he had the 2nd highest IQ in the US, so we aren’t exactly “dummies”.We do try to research & verify. “Soul” is mentioned in Deut., LSam., Job, Psalms, Prov., Ezek, and Jesus mentions it in Matthew, Luke & John, & he was of the house & lineage of David. Paul, also a Jew, uses the word in Acts, I Thes., Heb. James, also a Jew, uses it in the book of James. Peter, also a Jew, uses it in both I & II Peter. The latter books were written in Greek, & Jews apparently used the Greek for “soul” in their books, although they were Jews. In one sense of the word, all Jews would be “Messianic Jews”, as they all believe salvation will be through the Messiah. The difference is, some think He has already come (Christians) & the others believe He IS coming, but hasn’t come yet.Messianic Jews believe He will come again, on the last day of The Feast of Trumpets (“when the last trump shall sound”).If they are right, He will come again in Sept. I believe this year, that will be on the 28th-will have to check my calendar on that.Instead of everyone fighting over the past, we’d better be concentrating on what He has told us to do for the future!!!

          • You are just critical and nothing more. No wisdom, sense, faith or love just critical and abrasive.

          • You don’t know what ‘critical’ means in scholarship. It means closely studying things, and when it comes to critical reading of texts, doing a close reading of texts to discover what the author or authors are conveying. You don’t know me. You don’t know whether I have a faith or not. You don’t know whether I am kind or loving. So, don’t attempt to profile me.

          • Too late. Your attitude speaks volumes of your character.

          • You have given your whole color right to the front line You don’t project any loving kindness to human life, you don’t support in your statements any faith of Christianity. If you had it, you would not argue with everyone and it would show in how you worded your messages.

          • So what’s wrong with learning a trade? What’s wrong with learning something useful? Something that actually HELPS people not put others down just to hide the fact you’re a moron hiding behind a bunch of big words only you know the meaning of. As for religions I have no need for them when my trust and faith is in Jesus who is the way, the truth, and the life. The Holy Spirit is the only reliable teacher of God’s Word not some know-it-all religion professor. And as far as the usefulness of critical thinking, critical reading, or having an academic background in philosophy and religions a fool and his money are soon parted .

          • Now you have gone to outright lies. Messianic Jews adhere to the Bible but acknowledge Christ and the Trinity. Your ignorance is showing. Don’t believe others opinions for they will lead you astray. What a shame you have traded God for political correctness, socially acceptable and tolerance of evil beliefs of man.

          • Messianic Jews are no longer Jews, but Christians. They no longer belong to the Jewish community, which is why they cannot be buried in a Jewish cemetery or the Jewish section of a cemetery. For Judaism, you are required to follows God’s laws and guidance as best as you can. If you screw up, you can pray to God for forgiveness and God knows what is in your heart. Now, each branch of Judaism has a different take on how to obey God’s laws, and in the case of Reform Judaism, you can skip the purity and food laws. As for following God’s laws you do so as a means of thanking God for choosing Israel to be God’s people. You don’t follow the laws to be saved. As for salvation, according to Judaism, you don’t have to convert to Judaism to be saved; just living an ethical and moral life. That is why Judaism was never a missionary religion. That is in direct contrast to the traditional claim by Christianity, that you have to be a Christian to be saved. Thus, all Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, etc., are going to Hell. Not because they lived immoral lives, but because they are not Christians. Now, there are some Christian theologians and denominations that have serious problems with that stance.
            As for a Messiah, that is not a fundamental belief in Judaism; it is held most by Orthodox and some Conservative Jews, but Judaism has recognized that a belief in a Messiah is not a biblical belief, but one that arose in Judaism in the middle of the second century BC. And, as for the Messiah dying for the sins of the world – that is the Christian view of what the Messiah is supposed to do. For Judaism, no one is take on the sins of another – that would be a form of amnesty, a lack of personal responsibility.

          • I have never met anyone online so full of themselves. Arrogance, pride and bull is all you spout. May God have mercy on your soul. He loves you even though you choose to spit in his face by trying to turn others away from him. Every soul you influence with your lies will be answered for and accountability will be had.

          • wow, I guess with all those degrees, you know about everything there is to know .As a friend said once about his grandpa, grandpa knows all the subjects, but he doesn’t know anything about. Not impressed.

          • I thought I answered you on this. But, no, I don’t think that I know everything. The more you learn the more you realize how much you don’t know. With my degrees the heart of them besides gaining knowledge of religions and specifically early Judaisms and Christianities, is that when you are a scholar one of your critical tools is doubt; to question everything. To pursue knowledge for the sake of knowledge, not for an agenda. That also means questioning your own beliefs as a scholar. Going back and question previous theories, hypotheses, etc. And in the pursuit of knowledge, what is always required is critically reading and thinking. Skills that, sadly, are not often taught in our educational system.

          • So you came from an ape?

          • clearly, you don’t know the theory of evolution. Like a lot of Americans, completely ignorant when it comes to Darwin and the present theory of biological evolution.

          • There is no true knowledge in you sir. Just a scoffer trying to impress others. Hopefully you are twelve.

          • Christians have faith, we don’t need theories that have not yet ever been proved.

          • Thank you for your reply. I apologize if I insulted you.

        • Amen to that!

      • that’s right! There is but ONE GOD and the Lord said, Thou shall have NO other gods before me. The nation started out Christian and needs to become that way again! Thank you Father for Your Dear Son Jesus Christ, Yeshua Hamachiach! We praise you forever and ever, Amen

  6. The mark of a leader is a person that is capable of bringing people together, Not the political leaders who are hopeless when it comes to caring for anyone other than themselves, I’m speaking of the real American people that Dr Carson’s astute leadership can have an impact on their everyday lives. He is showing he has that ability more and more each day. We certainly are not getting that with today’s leadership.

  7. I really like Carson, every word that leaves his lips in truthful. So it’s Hillary, who never tells the truth, and Carson, who never lies. TOUGH CHOICE.

  8. AMEN & AMEN! If there is anything this country needs; It is a true return to God! God himself tells us in his word that he will heal our land if we will return to him!

  9. @wapitihunter your profile is the flag of a state that according to the writings of its founders was founded on the belief that GOD meant for Africans to serve Whites! Therein lies the problem of having a government based on a particular religion, further if you look at European history, the conflicts between iconoclast and those believed in religious relics, deportations ie statues and paintings resulted in the wholesale destruction of the aforementioned religious symbols many of which that predate Michelangelo’s painting of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel using models of the denizens of the various bars he frequented in Rome depicted Christ and Mary as Africans!!! Furthermore Catholics and Protestants had been slaughtering each other for centuries. In fact the 500 year mess that was Northern Ireland because a Protestant Queen Elizabeth fearing the invasion of a Catholic King Phillip put a Protestant garrison in Northern Ireland and gave them Catholic owned land to prevent Phillip from establishing a base from which to attack England!!! Religious strife goes back even further. The first crusaders on their way to the Holy Land took time off to slaughter the Rhineland Jews and ironically Islamic Spain was one of the few places where Jews were safe from persecution and developed a thriving vibrant community yet today the Spanish Jewish community is practically nonexistent. Why? The Spanish Inquisition after the defeat of the Muslims!!! Clearly the founding Fathers while believing in God were well aware of the inherent risks of a religious state valuing one religion over another and that is why Freedom of religion is in the bill of rights which are the First ten Amendments to the Constitution!!!

    • God is not a religion but a reality.

      • The god that you believe in is the god of only three religions, three major ones. Originally he was the god only of the Israelites, then Judaism, and from Judaism Christianity came into existence, and then with Islam. But your god is not the god of Buddhists, Hindus, Jains, Daoists, Confucianists, etc.

        • That again is your religious belief not mine!!! Native Americans believe in the Great Spirit. At least one group of Buddhist believe that one of Buddha’s incarnations had an earthly father named Josa, a mother named Maryamma was born in a pasture attended to by shephards under the Messanic star, was visited by three Magi(wisemen) and was brought gifts by three kings. Left his mother at the age of 12 was.baptised and came into his Power in his 33rd year was crucified rose from the dead on the third day and acsended bodily to heaven. His name was Ies Christina and he precedes Jesus of Nazareth by 1500 years! Which is again the problem with what Carson wants to do.

    • You are correct in your observations. However, when it comes to paintings of God, the saints, etc., Christianity has traditionally argued that with God becoming incarnate as Jesus, the prohibition against ‘grave images’ is no longer valid.

      • You are entirely correct however my thesis is that people have a tendency to force their religious beliefs on others! Like these clerks whose salary is paid by taxpayers to whom they citing THEIR OWN religious beliefs refuse to issue marriage licenses!!! They should either do their job or quit!!! They do not have the right to take taxpayer money and then refuse services to some of those same.taxpayers because of their own religious beliefs.

        • Not all religions. The most intolerant religions are Christianity and Islam, because they are missionary religions. But, you don’t have intolerance with eastern religions that hold that everything religion has something important to teach, which is why one can be a Buddhist and a Daoist at the same time. No exclusive rights.

          • It is the fanatics of almost every religion that create havoc!!! Or secular rulers who push the buttons of those fanatics for their own purposes!! For instance I was raised Missionary Baptist left the Church when was 15 and didn’t return until I was 46 yet I don’t have a problem with gay marriage. I am against abortion as long it is my wife, 20 year old daughter, or my daughter-in-law we’re talking about because push come to shove I’ll help love and support my child or grandchild! However I do not think I have the right to make that decision for someone else. Fanatics want to force the woman or girl to have the child and are against doing a damn thing for the child after it gets here!!!

          • I think you are absolutely right. There has been since the 1950’s a kind of ‘piety on the Potomac” I don’t like abortions but I believe it is always the woman’s decision, not the government or religious fanatics. I am tired of politicians using or abusing people’s religious beliefs to push their own agenda. But, not every religion. The most problematic religions actually have been the monotheistic religions. And I did agree with you when it comes to county clerks not doing their job. If they have an issue with following the laws, find another job.

  10. Ben Carson just jumped the shark. Write down the date. His candidacy just died

    • Or just maybe the people will be smart enough to see God is the only way to save ourselves and our country for our children. If not we are done. Spoiled Americans will die for they will not be good slaves. We don’t know what true suffering is in our spoiled, self centered lives.

      • Nope. Let’s follow Benjamin Franklin when he wrote that God only helps those who help themselves. What did Franklin mean? If you help yourself you don’t need God, because God won’t help you at all.

      • Funny. the folks at ISIS or ISIL say the same thing about mohammed. You are no different. You clowns who worship false dieties and let it control your lives are wasting your lives. In the end, you’ll be in a box in the ground just like all those “sinners”

        • Talk to me on judgement day. God has never commanded us to murder any who will not convert as this false god does. We discern ones by their acts not by the words which come from their mouths. To be blotted out is to be if one never existed. Their own mothers will not remember their face. This life is but a breath compared to eternal life but it is all about your and the here and now. Free will to love our creator and Heavenly Father or the king of lies, Your choice is obvious, sad.

  11. He is absolutely correct… theres good and bad ,if you get rid of good/God then what are u left with ? look around you.im 61 and seen it all ,its very sad for me to see it now .

  12. It is not difficult to like many of the present candidates. Especially after nearly two terms of obama’s incompetence. With the exception of Bush, Christy and Graham they all look good!

    I like most Americans are tired of voting for the lesser of two evils. Sometimes you see it is not the lesser that gets elected like what happened in 08 and 12. If a devil is elected we wind up in hell. We did and we are! Frankly in my mind that sucks. We have had to vote that way ever since Reagan. If the upcoming presidential election has as much apathy as the last two (maybe 9) presidential elections had real conservatives will lose again. Hopefully that will not be the case. Why so many are not concerned with the way the nation is heading is a mystery at best. We are self destructing and we are fiddling in the rain. The most important thing is getting a conservative who wants to save this once great nation and return to the very greatness that once made Americans proud.

    The current president has lied repeatedly about what he would do if elected. He was elected and he did none of the things he promised. However, no one complained they just cheered him more loudly or passed out. So he was elected again and still has not fulfilled his promises. He talked a good fight but it was all talk because he has not performed. It should not be necessary to have political experience to be president but the office does “demand” a dedication to, and love of, country. It seems obama hates it otherwise why would he wish to transform it? In order to fundamentally transform a nation the existing form of government must first be destroyed. That is what most Americans who voted for him and cheered him wildly perhaps did not realize. Hopefully they do see it now but that is doubtful.

    What is hope and change? Was it ever explained? When he promised a fundamental transformation did he ever explain into what? Just who was the stupid one(s) here. Correct, the voters who elected obama.

  13. The problem with Carson is that he sees the US as a Christian country, which it is not. The US was founded as a secular nation. Christianity is not the official religion and so there is no Church of the United States, as there is, for example, the Church of England. The notion that the US is a Christian nation was created by corporations in the 1940s in an attempt to counter FDR. What corporations did was to incorporate Christian principles with an anti-federal libertarianism. To do so, corporations would pay ministers and pastors to prech this, as well as organizations like the Chamber of Commerce. One of those corporate sponsored prechers was Billy Graham. In the 50’s he supported corporate interests so much so that in the UK, he was called “the Big Business evangelist.” He preached that the garden of Eden was a paradise with “no union dues, no labor leaders, no snakes, no disease.” He denounced all “government restrictions” in economic affairs, which he invariably attacked as “socialism.”
    Getting back on track, as for the Creator, while Carson, identified the Creator with the God of Christianity, Judaism and Islam, Jefferson was very careful when choosing the word Creator, instead. For Jefferson, Franklin, Washington and other Founding Fathers, they were actually Deists, who believed that the world was created by a god, but not the god of any known religion. Deism was part of the Enlightenment movement in Western Europe, primarily Great Britain, France and Germany. The leaders of the Enlightenment saw the danger of tyranny, not only political tyranny but the tyranny of organized religion. It was why we have had the ideal of the separation of state and religion/church. They did hold that one’s faith should guide one in their politics, but not only to a point. They knew the horrors of religious domination with wars between Protestants and Catholics and between Protestants themselves in western Europe.
    Now, getting back to Carson, this country is becoming less religious but also Americans represent every major religion in the world. I am not talking about immigrants but natural born citizens, who make up the roughly 29% of Americans who are not Christian. Who will speak for them? From Carson’s point of view only a Christian should hold the Presidency. Although there is no religious requirement to be President, nevertheless, many Americans believe that only a religious person, in fact, only a Christian should hold office. Think how problematic it was when JFK was running for President.
    Despite the fact that the younger generations are more secular, the United States is the most religious country among the western nations. We stand next to Saudi Arabia at being religious. In the late 40’s and 50’s there were billboards proclaiming that the only good Americans were Christian Americans. And there have been movements for proclaiming the US as a Christian nation, and most recently some political commentators claiming that only Christians have freedom of religion and no other Americans. Others have been proclaiming that we should follow Christian principles for creating our laws and governing, but that would be a form of Christian Shari’ah. And, then you would have to ask which Christian principles. For Santorum, that would be Roman Catholic principles for all. For Huckabee that would be Protestant Fundamentalism, for Carson, that would be Seventh-Day Adventism. Which one should it be?

    • Wow, our only hope is God. It is man which perverts everything. God is a reality not a religion and this country was founded on his laws. Do you kick kittens and cheer abortion?

      • What laws? The principles of a democratic society and country are not biblical, but comes from pagan Athens. The ideal that all men are created equal? You can fight that principle to a certain degree in the laws of Deuteronomy – that anyone who lives in Israel are equal in the laws of the Israelites, but you won’t find that in the New Testament. You might point to Paul when he states in Galatians that there is neither male or female, Jew or Gentile, or slave or free, but he was talking about ‘Christian’ communities, not society at large. Paul, like all other early Christians accepted slavery as the norm.
        The ideals of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are the ideals of the Enlightenment. But then again, if you are dealing with God’s laws, are you referring to God’s laws concerning the proper treatment of slaves? Or the laws that dictates that women are the property of their fathers and then their husbands? God’s laws which include that a woman who is raped but doesn’t cry out must be put to death? Or God’s laws that a father can marry off his daughter to the man who raped her? Just t0 name two from Deuteronomy..

        • Get a Strong’s Concordance and an early edition King James Bible for understanding. I don’t know what Bible you are using or who taught you lies but you sure have it all wrong. No one is more compassionate than God but he will settle all scores. He created us for his pleasure, gave us free will and man is corrupt and evil. Any who hurt a child of God will pay.

          • Sorry, I don’t use the KJV of the Bible because it is a lousy translation and it wasn’t based on the best manuscripts at that time. Plus, in certain passages the translators did intentional incorrect translations to back up their Christian beliefs. If I choose to read the Bible in English I prefer the NRSV, the standard for academic scholars of the Bible, but I normally read the Bible in its original languages: Hebrew and Aramaic for the Hebrew Bible and Greek for the New Testament.

          • Really, there is only one true set of manuscripts. Understood, your choice of Bible explains your attitude. If you had studied in depth as you want one to believe then you choose ignorance and God chose not to bless you with understanding. This would be your fault.

          • Sorry, there is no true set of manuscripts. What you actually see in your KJV is the use of multiple mss., chosen by the translators. Don’t know where your gibberish from other than some form of fundamentalist Christianity. Now, I have a Ph.D. in New Testament and Early Christianity History and Literature, with an MPhil in New Testament, a MTS in New Testament and Near Eastern Archaeology and an MA in Comparative religion. So, don’t talk to me about ‘in depth.’ The difference between you and me is that the basis of your position is based on religious thinking, where for me, as an academic scholar, my research is based on critical thinking and critical reading of texts.

          • Educated with no understanding which only comes from a close personal relationship with God. Religion is not of God but man. Living a Godly life is a chose. I have researched without the influence of religions or others. Try it.

          • Compassion? How about God ordering the Israelites to kill every man, woman, and baby who are Canaanite? This God had no problems when it comes to genocide in the past.

          • Correct, they were corrupting others as you are doing. Wipe them out to save the good ones. God is fair.

          • No they weren’t. Babies? God told the Israelites to take over their land and kill them all, which, by the way they didn’t. The only problem with Canaanites, who are actually cousins to the Israelites, is that they worshiped different gods. But originally, God, Yahweh, was a Canaanite deity.

          • Evil must be destroyed to save good. Just as others these days who raise up their young to hate Christians, Jews, gays, etc and are commanded to kill them. The wheat must be cleansed of the tares. God does what ever it takes to keep his children safe. Evil ones are likened to leaven. Allow a little in and it will take over. This is why we have discernment to know the difference.

      • Plus, your God is reality to only those who believe in the existence of that god. And still, for many who believe in that god, they don’t have the same beliefs as Christians do when it comes to that god. But, do you hold that Christianity is the only true religion, and not Judaism and the other great religions of the world?

        • Christ was a Jew and the Jewish are of God. We are all God’s children since our creation. Whether one believes or not is not an issue. God existed before you and he gives you free will to be a fool and follow the ways of the first murderer. A child of Cain by your own choice. Follow satan and his evil selfish ways to destruction or live to please God and have eternity. This life is as a breath compared to eternity. Yes, there is only one God but lots of confused people.

          • Actually belief is an issue. This god only first appears in the middle of the 12th century BC in the Son of Deborah, which is found in Judges 5. First literary evidence. Now, it might be your belief that this god exists and has always existed, but that is not a belief shared by others. For others, this god, like all gods, are the creations of human beings, who make their god or gods in their own image; not the other way around. By claiming that only your god exists, that makes you a kind of atheist because you don’t believe in the existence of the gods of other peoples. As for Satan, nice invention by some Jewish scribes in the middle of the second century BC, which is why Judaism today denies the existence of Satan, since he is a purely literary invention to deal with the issue of the existence of evil.

        • TRUE Christianity is not a religion but an eternal personal relationship with the living God, Jesus Christ by calling upon His name(Acts. 2:21, 16:31; Romans 10:9,10,13), ask, and receive Him into your heart(John 1:12) by faith alone.

          For by GRACE are ye saved through FAITH; and that NOT of yourselves: it is the GIFT of God: NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast(Ephesians 2:8,9).

          • Sorry but Christianity is a religion, created by later followers of Jesus.

          • I’m a born again Christian that walks by faith(2Cor. 5:7) and led by the Spirit and religion is the opposite of faith and true Christianity is not religion but RELATIONSHIP. People get that wrong all the time.
            I’m a Christian and I’ve never been involved in any man made satanic filthy religion.

          • So how do you explain Christianity being identified as a religion, along with Judaism? Now, by your last statement, I know where you are coming from. You evidently believe that all other religions are the creation of Satan or fall angels, etc. That comes from Paul’s statements in 1 Corinthians and the issue of whether Christians can eat meat that comes from animals who had been sacrificed in Greco-Roman temples. here is the problem, the word translated as ‘demon’ is daemonia, which, in Paul’s time, referred to the lesser gods of the Greeks and the Romans, the nonOlymptic gods. Later in Christian literature the daemones came to be understood as demons, and it is where we get our word demon in English. Now, from this traditionally Christianity has argued that all other religions were the creations of Satan, demons, fallen angels, etc. That is why you here ultra- conservative and fundamentalist Christian preachers claim that Buddhists, Hindus, Jains, Daoists, Confucianiists, Native American following their traditional religious practices, for e.g., are actually worshiping Satan. That is pure hogwash and why so many Christians are ignorant about the beliefs of other religions, and that includes Judaism. Now, those of other religions are just as ignorant, but not because they see Christianity as evil, etc.

          • Your (stupid/arrogant)opinion, not fact.

          • Just happens to be true. Who came up with churches? People? Who created Christian scriptures? people. Who decided what Christian writings would be scripture – people and it took until the 8th century for all Christians to agree as to what should be in the New Testament. Who created denominations? People. On the whole, who came up with all of the institutions of Christianity? People.

          • Just as a side comment – have you every read an actual book on the history of Christianity – or one that was written by scholars? I advise you get a book on World Religions, and in those books you will find Christianity as one of the great world religions.

      • good try, but it is pointless and frustrating to try and argue with a know it all atheist. they are legends in their own mind and cannot be changed-why try?

    • Sooooo the “One Nation Under GOD” thing,,, explain please mr. atheist.

      • That was added to the pledge during the Cold War. This whole thing about the US being a Christian country didn’t come from our Founding Fathers but our grandparents..

        • More Liberal B.S.

          • That happens to be the truth. It might go against the way you think and believe, but try to read legitimate books on the subject.

          • Your right. But it’s only a half truth. The pledge and the cold war part. Why are the Ten commandments on the Supreme court? Your B.S. use of the FALSE separation of Church and State and the way you Totalitarian Commifascists use this B.S. activist judges MADE UP MEANING of it is used to persecute Christians. Admit it. You progressives HATE Christians. You can’t hide something like that.

            Feelings mutual. There IS more of us than you. You lose. Obamao messed up big time. Instead of ushering in your Religion of State he set off the beginning of the end of the Progressive movement.

            “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security”
            You have no idea what the above means do you?

          • The 10 commands are there out of Christian chauvinism. Now in the Ten Commandments you have the clause that you are not to have any other gods. So, if we have the inscription on the Supreme Court, does that mean that Americans who don’t believe in that god are not good Americans and they should not have the full rights and privileges of being an American? That only Christian, Jewish and Muslim Americans have their full rights since they are the only ones who worship that particular god?

          • No. Does it mean you Totalitarian Commifascist and your RELIGION OF STATE have the right to persecute Christians like you do. Any non-believers of your Religion of State at that. M.O. of you control freaks is to attack something. Like say…..oh…….Marriage. Then call the defenders of your attack the persecutors. You people are Fahked in the head. You know well be purging you soon right? You really leave us no choice if we want to be free. Nope no choice at all. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/36b8aa5bb22c429a10e695d74a70822729957362081fe36415b61ae97405843c.jpg

  14. Until we turn back to God, his ways and laws we are doomed as a country and a people. If we believe in nothing we fall for everything. God is our rock, our refugee, our moral compass, our strength, our joy. Dr Carson is the only hope of saving ourselves. It is time for us to be the strong, accountable, people of integrity and faith as our forefathers for the sake of our future. There is no hope or love for our children if we continue down this road of moral decay. Our enemy is winning by encouraging our lust for self. Without God we have no love for others and justify murdering our own young. This is so horrific! Even our churches have lost their way to fill the coffers. We have traded God for socially acceptable, political correctness and tolerance of evil. The road is wide leading to evil but the road is narrow to live a disciplined, satisfying life of pleasing our Heavenly Father every day. We have lost God’s protection for our country and he will deliver us into the hands of our enemies. We have forgotten he is the first disciplinarian and he will correct us one and all. Generations will pay for our turning against him. Time is running out for us as a people. The entire world will suffer for our mistakes, laziness and ways of the son of perdition. We must put our arrogance, pride, lust and deceitful ways aside for the greater good. Love your creator people as he does each and every one of us. God is the only way to prosper and do well. Love Dr. Carson and he is on the right track and our enemies will attack him for they want to make us the foreigners in our own country. God Bless America, may be once again deserve it.

  15. I believe that those that are soulless and do not believe in the Supreme Being God will have to explain to we the people why they think they have the right to bring atheism into the government and tell we believers that God can not be in our every day life thoughts and prayers. I will not vote or listen to anyone of the Republicans that refuse to have God in their lives.

  16. To the dedicated atheist, you have a simple choice keep a Christian God in America where you have a choice or deal with the Muslim God where you have no choice other than convert or die. I for one would rather live under the Christian God where you may still sin, drink alcohol, being gay, cursing God, smoking pot, doing drugs but will still be forgiven. When on the Muslim side, it means apostasy and losing your head or get tossed off a 20 story building. Choose and vote wisely.

    • Not really. There are Christian extremists, such as Christian militia movements, the KKK, and you have Muslim extremists such as ISIS, al-Qaeda, etc. Now, 85% of Muslims are in Indonesia – find any ISIS or terrorists there? Nope. Why?

      • Hum, what about the 35 jihad terrorist camps in American who have amassed armies with obama’s open borders? They have vowed jihad on us. obama let their leaders out to join them and flooded our borders so they could enter with the masses. They say they have sleeper cells in every US city now to murder us in our beds.

        • That’s DOMESTIC ENEMY Obamao’s “Private Army” waiting to attack us from within.

          • Domestic enemies, if they do exist yes, along with Christian militia movements, the CCC, the KKK, etc.

          • We get it. Democrats hate Christians. And yes…………….You DO exist!!

          • So, you believe that Jimmy Carter hates Christians? JFK?

          • No. Just you modern day Totalitarian Commifascists (Democrats). Obamao HATES them and YOU hate them. K. belligerent A. Hole? It’s the Democrats that are pulling the Maoist cultural cleansing of our country isn’t it? It’s the Democrats who inflict their Maoist Political correct intellectual fascism on us. It’s the Democrats FORCING their Religion of State on us. It’s the Democrats that are abusing our children with their “Queering of the Schools”. You’ll soon be rewarded justly for your belligerency. Put em up A. Hole!! Not enough room in the country for YOU and a FREE PEOPLE anymore. One of us has to go. That’d be you Totalitarian Commifascists and the rest of your control freak ilk. You act like you took over our country and we should surrender to you!
            GO FAHKE YOURSELF!!! Looks like Obamao might be getting the civil war he’s been pushing for after all. Guess what? YOU LOSE! Still sticking with running the FELON Hillary for president too right?
            GOOD! You’re going to LOVE President Trump! Trump represents our CONTEMPT for you and yours. You’ll be getting your comeuppance sooner than you think. K. TRAITOR! I can’t wait!!!

          • Well, you really are one of the loony ones. One of those who never made it and probably blames everyone else for your failures. You don’t like the way society is changing and passing you by. Too bad. When it comes to Trump, he cannot win because he has lost the Hispanic vote, that any candidate needs. But getting back to you, you sound like a lot of domestic terrorists, like McVey, The Army of God, The Covenant, The Sword and the Arm of the Lord, the KKK (especially in the 1920’s), The Order ( which no longer exists), the Phineas Priesthood, just to name a few. They are the ones, like you, that would love to have a civil war. By the way, most child abusers are straight.

          • If me wanting my freedom from tyranny makes me loony in your eyes so be it. It merely proves my point. Society is passing me by? Coming from the generation that’s to stupid to cross the street without causing a pile up I’ll take it for what it’s worth. NOTHING! Are you a “Sidewalk leaper”? I’ll bet on it because you’re obviously a Totalitarian Commifascist A. Hole. (Democrat)
            Yup. You’ve evolved so much right!…….Please would ya!

          • WHAT TYRANNY?

          • Liberal Tyranny.

          • Wow that’s very specific.

            Cons are always factless humans.

            You like to flap your gums and give us the talking point you heard last night on Fox News, BUT when cornered by the liberal, all you can do is tap dance.

            Kind of embarrassing that you can’t be specific.
            Your children must be proud

          • Ah, the ranting of the clinically insane conservative.

            so refreshing on a Sunday.

            so scary as well that YOU CAN VOTE.

          • Thanks for providing an example of my post so people can see what I mean. You should be scared but your much to arrogantly stupid to see the sheet storm coming your way.

          • well we might IF you people could be specific.
            BUT unfortunately con are nothing BUT vague.

            I guess that cause it’s have to be specific with a fantasy.

          • I’m not Republican. I was specific. You’re just denting it.

          • says the fool with NO PROOF.

        • Where are these terrorist camps? Locations? Source of information other than the Idiot News Daily?

          • There is one in Jesup. Ga Don’t know where the rest of them are, except hear-say because they are not listed on google and else where. I guess our government does not want us to know where they are. I only know of this one because i have extended family that live there and around there. And when they started seeing strange things and people, they made a point to find out (under cover) what was going on. The law in that county know the camp is there and keeping a very close eye on it. So i’m sure other states know where these camps are also and are keeping a close eye on them. But can’t do anything until the group makes a move. Just wanted to let you know, these terrorist camps do exist all over the US. I don’t know where you live, but go out away from big cities to very small rural small towns, then go exploring in the woods outside of those towns (be careful). These groups build their own houses to live in,(very small) and buildings to store equipment in. Under trees, very hard to spot from the sky. Will look like a small farm, –small house, barn, a couple of out buildings, a garden, etc. Because most everything they do is underground. And most live off the grid. They train to fight, inside the large barn they build. No one can see them inside the barn and a tunnel will take them back to the house, they can change clothes under ground and come up looking normal. Anyway, i thought everybody knew what’s going on in their state, at least the ones that care to find out, cause they are out there. I don’t think they are going to be able to do much against us because our government and law agencies know where they are at and will know the second the group tries to make a move. Take Care and God Bless

          • But you have no specific information. Hear-say doesn’t count. I looked up the situation in Jessup and there is no substance, just suspicions because there is a Muslim commune. And the information is coming of sites such as World News Daily – not exactly a sane and reliable source of information.

          • My sources are reliable. And sure, you’re going to read just what you just found. It’s not going to say what i told you in any paper. They are being watched and you can’t tell the public all the details until the group makes a move. That would be slander in the news. As for now, that is what Jesup calls it, a Muslim commune. That is what the government calls it also, for the people’s information. It’s like a volcano, all you can do is watch and wait. All i was doing is telling you where one is at, you’re the one that ask. Nothing else i can tell you on that camp, didn’t even need to say as much as i did. And like you have found out, it’s not going to be in any news you search. There is a map i found on the internet about a year ago, that showed that camp and several other ones in different states, but can’t find it anymore. And as for reliable sources, what part of “under cover” do you not understand? That’s why you’re not going to read this in any news papers or hear it on tv. I understand you have to go by what you read, but don’t dis-credit our information just because we know something you don’t. Take the info and research it deeply, from many many different sources before calling someone a liar. Research and do a little traveling. The info is out there.

          • You have knowledge of undercover agents? Or are you assuming? They don’t appear to be your average Muslims. Wondering if they might be an offshoot of Sufism, a mystical form of Islam. This whole personality cult trait is not a characteristic of mainstream Islam. I’m wondering if this is a new age religion that makes use of Islam. I am only questioning the legitimacy of sources. Hearsay, gossip, not really reliable. A lot of what I find on the internet concerning training camps of Muslim terrorists to be unreliable. Someone told me and I tell you it is there – that sort of thing. And, of course, we are dealing with a loot of websites, that want to sensationalize all of this. You might not be hearing it on TV and in newspapers is because the info is not valid.

          • You’re not hearing much on TV and newspapers cause there is really nothing to tell right now. They live in a commune type setting for now. Like the hippies did back in the 60’s. Some of these communes are just that and some are Getting ready for attacks. I understand you questioning gossip, i do the same thing, but without cutting people down because i think they are just repeating something someone said. I just check it out cause i want to find out if there is any truth in what they are saying. Just take it with a grain of salt, ask questions, and then check it out for yourself. I’m not assuming, i know they are closely watching this one in Jesup, Ga ,, due to them purchasing certain items in town. What they purchase is reported. The officials in these states and counties are watching these communes for our and their families safety and the safety of our country.

          • did you find the part where these “camps go back to early 2000’s?
            ya, that’s right.
            the conservatives let them in and trained them.
            the silly just can’t get any better.

          • I love the way cons tap dance when confronted with their loony conspiracy theories.

            MAYBE it is a Muslim commune.

            and does Debra know this commune was started in 2003?

            LONG before Obama.

            so a CONSERVATIVE administration LET THEM IN and DID NOTHING through 2008.

            but NOW it’s ALL Obama’s doing, right Debra?

          • Quite a rant there and over nothing. In my post to you i said the place was a Muslim commune, it’s just being watched. And i never said anything about them being there, was obama’s fault. I know the commune has been there since early 2003, but actually believe they were there earlier than that. Just weren’t noticed as a commune until they grew into a larger amount–into a commune. Who’s fault it is that they are there,,I have no idea. As far as any one not doing anything about them being there–i’m guessing there was nothing they could do but just be aware of them and watch them. As long as they are not doing anything wrong, you can not bother them. You need to chill, you’re going to cause yourself to have a stroke.

          • ” I guess our government does not want us to know where they are”

            AND I guess you are one of the MOST gullible humans alive, as well.

          • Lazy look it up for yourself. One may be in your back door. There are maps and a list of towns. Do you live in a bubble?

          • Where, the crazy World News Daily?

  17. Dr. Carson is dead right on God in our constitution, and bill of rights… With out God look at the mess that our present administration has gotten this nation in…. May God bless Dr. Carson, and our Nation.

    • people as low info as you should not be allowed to vote.

      Tell me, since you say this:
      “With out God look at the mess that our present administration has gotten this nation in.”

      NOW TELL ME,
      what things used to happen in the GW administration that NOW DO NOT happen,
      to make the US, GODLESS.
      or that created “the Mess”?

      You might as well tell me what the “mess” is as well.

      • If you’re so stupid that you can’t see the forest for the trees , how can you expect anyone to convince you of anything.. You either believe in God or not.. Dr. Carson does and many believe that he is right on.. Don’t reply because I prefer not to waste time on you, or what you think…

        • If I ha a buck for every con that bailed out of a post with that line, I would be a millionaire.

          cons NEVER back up their “points”.
          they only deal in talking points and actually CAN’T back up squat.

          thank you for proving THAT point.

  18. Good man, Ben Carson. We need to get back to the principles that this country was founded upon.

    • What principles? Only white men of property can vote? That the First Amendment when it comes to religion applies only at the Federal level?

      • After listening to your ignorance I am for IQ tests before voting. Bet mine is way higher than yours for reasoning is beyond your comprehension. Hopefully you are young with little life experience but full of yourself.

  19. Ben Carson is one of the few that says what we want to hear! You think the Christians are a minority? Just because they only put the “ignorant” and “unlearned” before the public eye, does not necessarily speak for the rest of us. We are smart, educated and informed. As a whole, we do not speak out that much but this election, you are going to see the Christians come out of their hiding places and bring a force like you have never seen. This “Muslim/Godless/liberal media is going to get the surprise of a life-time! We are sick of the “tail wagging the dog’! We still believe in life, liberty, justice for all and the pursuit of happiness! We still believe “In God We Trust”! We still believe in morals, integrity, and character! We still believe in patriotism, the “Pledge of Allegiance” and the “Constitution”! We still believe in a military where we take care of our soldiers and veterans! We still believe in a military that puts fear into the minds of our enemies! We have had enough of this Godless, Gutless Obama mess and we will show America that there are far more “Christians” than you ever dreamed about, so don’t go disregarding Ben Carson so soon! He is brave enough to stand up and tell it like it is! There will be a backlash like you have never seen! We, “the silent majority” will not be so silent anymore!

    • Right on all counts Susan! Well said and I am so with you on everything you believe.

    • Christians are the majority in the US, elected officials, judges, etc. Although we have separation of church and state – that wall of separation has a lot of doors. Christianity has influenced the creation of laws in the US for better or worse. But, the United States is a secular country; that is the way it was created. If not, then Christianity should be legalized as the official religion of the United States, and as some have commented for years, only Christians should be US citizens. I have heard that from politicians, ministers and some young folk.

    • NO ONE who is anti Climate change is going to win the presidency.

      The Millennials who out number the Christian enthusiasts 10 fold are not happy about the older generation and their stance on science.

      “We are smart, educated and informed”

      yet deny the science of climate change.
      why is that?

      Right wing propaganda done it’s job ob Susan?

      ” We, “the silent majority” will not be so silent anymore!”

      I have other BAD NEWS for you.

      THE ONLY REASON the GOP get votes in YOU Christian enthusiasts.
      THAT is why they keep the abortion debate alive VOTES.
      that is why the keep the immigration debate alive. VOTES.

      YOU wacky right already vote in droves.
      you are pretty much maxed out.

      tell me, how many of your Christian enthusiast friends didn’t vote last presidential?

      so since they all did, where are these “droves of Christians” coming from?
      Mexico?

  20. I sure wish people would stop making this about RELIGION because it’s not! It’s about MORALITY! You don’t need to be a religious zealot to understand this. Everyone seems to think religion is the answer when all we really need is some simple moral standards. We as a nation have abandoned all moral standards. Anyone can do a quick Google search and find that when a society abandons it’s moral standards it will collapse. I’m not saying that religion doesn’t foster good moral standards it does. But does everyone need a book to explain to them what is right and wrong? I don’t believe they do! If you’re raised in a family that is just good people then you know. And I believe people know instinctively too.

    • I agree with you on that. We have become or are becoming a nation of egotists It might be a superficial example, but this whole thing about taking selfies is egotistical idiocy.

    • “Everyone seems to think religion is the answer when all we really need is some simple moral standards.”
      you are right.

      my daughter is fifth generation atheist and the most kind, and moral person you will ever meet.

      Religion has NOTHING to do with morality.
      Good PARENTING does.

  21. Dr Carson for President!!!!

  22. The people of this nation could certainly profit be getting closer to God, but they do not need to rely on GOVERNMENT to take them there. Beware the theocrats who would tear down the wall between church and state!

    • The division was to protect government from interfering with or controlling the church. People have it backwards now. American was founded on and will always be God’s country.

      • But it is also freedom from religion and that includes any religion from controlling the government.

      • “American was founded on and will always be God’s country.”
        America, silly con.

        STOP LYING ON THE INTERNET.
        God is not going to take this lightly.

        I wonder why Jefferson cut up the word of God to make his own bible?
        Rumor has it, THAT is heresy of the First Order.(in that time period)

        a number of the FF were also MASONS.
        and Masons were NOT very Christian.

        More of a Deist actually.

        AND I wonder why the word Christianity is NOT in the Constitution?
        or the word GOD?
        Hmmmm silly con?

        God is mentioned once.
        does the con know where?

  23. Trump/Cruz Trump/Carson Trump/Huckabee. One of these combinations should be a winner for God and country. Let’s be free again. We have been held captive long enough….no more slavery….vote Republican in 2016!

    • I am with you if remove Cruz as he should not be on a ballot. He does not meet the qualifications any more than obama did but we let it happen once so they think it will work again.

      • They both qualify – American mothers = natural born Americans.

        • Wrong he is a naturalized citizen.

          • Nope. Again, if your mother is American but you were born in another country, you are a natural born citizen who was born in a foreign country. Did you oppose McCain when he ran for President because he wasn’t born in the US?

          • Heritage by natural law has always been through the father only. I never cared for McCain and don’t remember the circumstances. If he were born on our military base anywhere in the world to a citizen father then he is legit.

  24. No GOD no rules…and this country has chosen to remove GOD! Stupid is as stupid does!

    • you think Buddhist countries have no rules silly con?
      how about Hindu countries?
      neither of them have A GOD, so I guess THAT blows old doggy’s theory all to hell.

      • And “Twisted Sister Troll” speaks through rectum again!

        • so no you can’t answer squat.
          you are just an idiot who vomits shit on the internet with no regard to the TRUTH.

          You are a very unpatriotic American.
          sad for America that these poeple work so hard to undermine the country.

          WHY do you cons do that?

          • Truth is something you have no concept of! The only discussion I would care to conduct with your sorry Anti-American Ass is in braille! Crawl back in your pile of feces troll…

  25. Maybe, we are not talking about a religious God. Maybe, we are talking about whoever or whatever created and maintains the Universe(s). Maybe God is a string (string theory). Maybe God is the source and center of all that is. God does not need to be Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, or any other faith. God is or we wouldn’t be.

  26. trueblueam@yahoo.com

    He’s right; the nation under Dem rule is schizoid! I do wish those young people who have been brain washed for the last 25 years in their colleges would open their brains and start to think for themselves and see the truth of what progressives really represent! Ben Carson is a good man and I am so glad to see him in the Rep field.

    • Dems ruled the country from the early 30’s until mid 90’s and MADE this country GREAT.

      the middle class started to implode and DEBT started to rise once Regan took office, ,so…..

      • trueblueam@yahoo.com

        Study your history a little more….you are wrong. Look at cities like Detroit under Dem rule for decades…in ruins and now the nation is going that way too.

        • are you really challenging the facts silly con?

          YOU should look up history if you think the liberal is making this up.
          but NO FOOL.
          it is YOU who is the moron in this debate.

          look at SF, NY. as liberal as it gets.

          shall I list some RED cities that are in trouble?

          THEY EXIST FOOL.

          you seem to be part of the right that is trying to destroy America with your LIES.
          very unpatriotic.

  27. The most valuable point for ALL Americans to take from this message is the ‘wake up’ call our whole country needs desperately. We have all fallen off balance regarding our relationship with each other and we so very much need a true leader to guide us back on track with a more trusting and brotherly-loving approach to each other and each others’ needs. Again, and I quote: “Ask not what our country can do for us, but what we can do for our country”(JFK). We need stop being so concerned about what we want and what we can get and how we can get it, and start being concerned about working together. There will always be some who choose the lazy, selfish route. We can only hope to inspire them, but we all lose if we don’t start genuinely caring about each other and our America the Beautiful.

    Thank you so very much, Dr. Benjamin Carson for all your courageous inspiration.

  28. The way you dont lose the base is by making it a point to mention that it does not matter if what you believe. What matter is that you defend the Constitution and that means accepting the views of others even if they dont agree with your views!!!!!!

    The problem with todays politicians is that they think their views ARE the Constitution and the other parties arent.

    The basis for why something should be illegal is if it violates the Constitutional rights of another.

    That means does it harm someone else physically or financially? If not then you have no right to try to make it illegal simply because your belief system rejects it, whatever it may be.

    The Constitution is about LIBERTY and FREEDOM for ALL. Not just for all who think like you do!!

  29. I love Carson too, but this story proposes he’s a politician…..he’s not a politician and even when he wins this race he will never be a politician!!

  30. Like you said, Trump, Cruz, Carson, Huckabee, (not necessarily in that order) plus some others, is a new breed of politicians, (compared to what we have), backed by our founding fathers once again. Let’s go for it!!! Let’s straighten out this crazy mess. This country isn’t done yet!!!! Let’s get behind them and NEVER let it happen again.

    • Leaving out Trump, for Cruz, Carson and Huckabee, they want this country to be a Christian nation and and extreme fundamentalist Christian nation. The three envision a kind of Christian Shari’ah without any care for Americans, native born Americans who are nonChristians, and I am not talking about atheists. The Founding Fathers wanted freedom of religion but also freedom from religion, i.e., religious tyranny. By the way, you can include Santorum here because he envisions the US following Roman Catholic doctrine only.

  31. Does anyone out there find it rather strange that this is a country that was founded on Godly principles, by the founding fathers? We have “In God We Trust” on our currency. We say “one nation, under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance. We sing God Bless America at the 7th inning of major league ball games. I could go on and on,but I think that many of you get the picture here. So, do any of you find it strange that we can’t talk about God in public schools, govt. buildings, etc., because it is not politically correct to do so! Why, we might offend someone! I say that there is something wrong with this picture!

  32. THANK YOU Dr. Carson but why did you not PROVE yourself first as a councilmen or maybe even as governor first or even in Congress?? I suspect you are doing this out of pride and jealousy reasons and that is NEVER good for a politician.

    • He has about the same political experience as President Obuslim, when that hammerhead was first elected. I knew what that man, whom the Libs elected for his skin color, stood for and have watched him systematically destroy our Republic since. I also know what Dr. Carson stands for and I believe that this black man could go a long way toward healing the progressive/socialist cancer that Obama exposed us to.

      • There is NO reason to elect BC over any other candidate but Americans want to prove to Negroes that they are not racist to racist Negroes.

        In return we got a negro that is dangerously destroying everything “white” and Christian about this country and employing anti-Chritian Moslems in his cabinet and the military. Then this grateful Nerogro neglects his duty by golfing a lot and not showing up at security meeting throughout his term.

        Then the Negroes found out he was illegal and they showed their appreciation by rioting and looting at every excuse and shooting at cops and demanding more worship of their race.

        Yep! All’s fine and dandy with a negro in control! Perhaps BC can correct it all and show them Negroes what it’s like when we got a legal one.

        Yeah, we will show them Negroes now!!!

        • “In return we got a negro that is dangerously destroying everything
          “white” and Christian about this country and employing anti-Christian
          Moslems in his cabinet and the military”

          for a while there I though you were sane, but then you go all stupid.

          name the Muslim in the cabinet fool.
          (you won’t of course since you are LYING

    • He is not a career politician and that is a lot of his appeal. What are you twelve?

      • We don’t know because he never was one. And he just might get 12 years due to Negro worship.

        • I am white but have read all his books and his integrity is what I like about him. He grew up like a lot of us but worse to become a neurosurgeon. His mother taught him American values and raised him to be a Christian man. He is the best choice hands down. He will unite Americans black and white not turn us on each other. We all live and get alone in most of the country. muslim are what we need to watch not each other. They have vowed jihad on America and obama works for them to put us in a position to be unable to protect ourselves. Be wiser than the serpent.

          • He did attempted murder as a youth. Don’t think I want a guy like that as President!

          • Really, so you were never young and did anything you regret? If so you are alone. He is honest about it. God kept him from hurting his friend and taught him a lesson. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

          • Had it not been for a belt buckle BC would of been in prison. He carried out his thought! Too close for comfort my friend.

            That’s CROSSING the line!

          • Yet you allow muslim in your country, neighborhoods and cities who train their children from toddler to hate Christians, Jews and gays. They are commanded to murder them and the training starts with small animals. Have you ever seen a man beaten to death with bricks for being a gentile and walking down the wrong street? This is where our country is headed. A crime of passion is not the same as premeditated murder. Any of us could have hurt another when young before we learned to control our tempers. By the grace of God most of us did not succeed. I pushed a boy out of a hay loft who could have landed on a rock, hit his head and been killed. I wanted to hurt him. We have all at one time come close to crossing that line but it scared us enough to control ourselves. Living in the flesh is not to be easy.

          • “et you allow muslim in your country, neighborhoods and cities who train
            their children from toddler to hate Christians, Jews and gays”

            stop lying on the internet.
            GOD IS WATCHING YOU

          • ” Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”
            that does not stop you cons on a daily basis.

            YOU LIE about the Pres and liberals everyday.
            sounds like you are casting stones.

            and I am going out on a limb here, but I think YOU are hardly PURE enough to do so.
            and here you claim to be religious.

            I guess you are for sure going to hell.
            especially for the lies on the internet.

            Because God sees EVERYTHING, you had better be right about Obama, or it’s fire for eternatiy for the con.

          • his mother was on WELFARE and FOOD STAMPS.
            something Carson now wants to end.

            con hypocrisy.

            he also benefited from the government to get his degree in medicine
            more hypocrisy.

            ” and obama works for them to put us in a position to be unable to protect ourselves”

            you are a VERY UNPATRIOTIC AMERICAN.
            (if Obama WAS a dictator like you morons claim, WHY are YOU not in a Fema Camp?)

            what proof does the low info con have of this conspiracy to end America?

            right wing radio?
            how about some reality?

            SO WHEN are the Muslim attack going to happen?

            you know, a little Ebola in the water supply would have been SO MUCH QUICKER.
            AND he is the dictator, so if he told the army to poison the water THEY WOULD, right con?
            is that how your silly story goes?

            then the Muslims could just come up from Mexico where they have been waiting since last fall to attack, right silly con?

            BUT WHY is Obama waiting 61/2 years to put the PLAN into effect?

            maybe he has and the CON is too low info to know?

            so many holes in the silly cons conspiracy theory you could drive 2 Abrams tanks through it side by side.

            the con does not seem to care OR take notice.
            Your HATRED is SO deep, you are blinded by IT.

  33. I would settle for just some simple basic moral standards!

  34. Praise God for people that stand like Ben Carson !!!!

  35. We have let the scumbag lefties kick God out of homes, schools, our court system, our politics and our way of life. Hence we have received our just reward. It is about time we invite God back into our lives. I know our God is a kind, merciful, compassionate, long suffering and a loving God. I KNOW he will heal our land if we stop the shedding of innocent blood and do not condone a life style that He says is an abomination to His creation.

    • I have sad news for you.

      GOD was NEVER in our court system or our school system.
      We are a secular country.
      Time to face facts.

      Stop banging your head against the wall

      • Has to bang is head so that it can work a little bit.

      • First of all Do you swear to tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help you God! I went to public school and could have said a prayer anytime I wanted. If you knew anything about the founding of this land it is clear that it was based on biblical and Godly precepts. Second of all you need to be a little more respectful. Judging by you arrogance it is clear you are a liberal left wing socialist reprobate.

        • our problem is I have an education and you are an ignorant con that deals in talking points.

          I wonder why no nativity scenes are allow on government property?

          could be that secular thing.

          ask the Alabama supreme court how that goes.

          • Your problem is that you think you are intelligent. However, it is crystal clear that you are deprived of knowledge and wisdom. Conversation is over. I do not like to converse with fools.

          • If I had a buck for every silly con who used THAT line to skate from being an idiot, I would be SO wealthy.

            you fools like to vomit to the choir.
            not going to happen on my internet big fat liar.

            IF the Constitution is based on the bible why is the word Bible not in the Constitution silly con?
            or the word God?
            or Christianity?

            I DOES HOWEVER have a clause SPECIFICALLY ruling OUT any religious test.

            THAT in itself is very odd for a “Christian nation FOUNDED on Gods words.

    • Sounding like a Muslim extremist, except you are calling for a Christian Shari’ah.

  36. I love Ben Carson … oh sh–, and I’m white. Can’t have that!

      • He reminds me of Teddy Roosevelt’s famous quote: “Walk soft and carry a big stick”! I think he would make an excellent president and I am sure he would select and appoint appropriate advisers to guide him in anything he needs to know on any certain situation. But, he strikes me as a man who is very confident and very capable of handling the job!

        • My only concern is that we survive till elections. We are now number 20 on freedom compared to other countries. We are broke, in debt we can’t pay and if there is a plan to call in the debt to take us down our country will be divided up so America will no longer exist. We lost our salt. Most of the world now considers us a muslim country after obama took a second term and we did nothing to remove him knowing he took office illegally through fraud and forged documents. Only God can save us from ourselves now. When a society does not live by discipline and God’s laws chaos ensues and rights are lost. The world depends on us to be strong. Prophesy says we will stumble but not fall and will receive help from an unexpected people. Carson is the man we need now for sure.

          • “We are broke, in debt we can’t pay and if there is a plan to call in the
            debt to take us down our country will be divided up so America will no
            longer exist.”

            Are you on drugs?
            Dropped in your head as a baby?
            Listen to nothing but hate radio?

            Where do you get this crap?
            What freaking nut job do you listen to that tells you this will shit and why are you so stupid that you believe it?

          • Get your head out of the sand. Going around with your head in the clouds pretending everything is fine is foolish. We have 35 jihad terrorist camps across America who have amassed armies with obama’s open borders. We were the richest country in the history of the world till obama got his hands on our office, power and money. I guess you don’t believe our money built up our enemies thanks to obama. When he first took office he funneled our money to them under the guise of aid but now does not even hid it. Americans need to wake up and pay attention for we have lost a lot more than our financial rating since he took office. It is called years of research. We are in worse trouble than anyone wants to face. United we stand but divided we fall and we are not united.

          • “We have 35 jihad terrorist camps across America”

            ok, where?

            the fact that you have no idea, is the proof that you are one in La la land.

            you silly low info cons are what is wrong with America.
            you’re head is filled with shit.

            we are going to have to send all you fools to camps

          • when it comes to your sources, you just prove my point and Reality Check’s

          • Right, even Allen West is wrong. Where there is smoke there is fire. Bury your little head in your blanket and let the adults deal with reality punkin.

          • Alllen West is nuts. What a great source someone who left the military after an Article 32?

          • What branch did you serve?

          • I was in the DOJ and then moved to what is now called DS. This was in the 80’s and 90’s. I worked my way through college as a police officer. But, still, West is nuts.

          • So you never served in the military. Awful critical for one who has not a clue. It must be great being you in your mind. Clueless and arrogant.

          • Did you know why he had an Article 32? When it comes to my experiences that includes Beirut in the 80s, Bogota, and Belfast. No, I didn’t wear a military uniform, and I respect the uniform. The only one here that is arrogant is you. Now, did you serve? Where? How much combat experience have you had? How many years of combat experience? Combat experience here in the US, also? Are you willing to defend the Constitution and that means defending Americans that you hate? Could you be a good American as a Secret Service Agent and take a bullet for a president that you hate? That is all that I am going to say, because you getting me to cross a line I can’t do and would never do. But you are the type of people that led me to phase out. That’s enough.

          • I hate no one but do hate lazy, arrogant, boastful and evil. You are correct that is enough.

          • Let’s just say that we agree to disagree. That part of a free society like ours. Sorry if I got a little heated. A lot of this brought up a lot of bad memories. Sorry and take care. I do mean that.

          • Take care yourself. We are all upset over the situation we find ourselves in now. I would willingly take a bullet to ensure the freedom of all American children. I have known freedom and see our loss. I am a grandmother of eight and worry for their future safety and freedom. This did not just start but people are just now acknowledging our plight. God Bless you with peace and comfort.

          • Thank you for the kind words. I’m kind of jealous. The work that I did for a good deal of life did not allow for marriage, children, family, or close friends. And again, take care and bless.

          • Raising a family is a battle of sorts at times also. One day your heart sores with pride and one day it breaks when your babies hurt. It is never too late for giving up is never an option. There may be a family who would love to have you as an addition to love and cherish.

          • You pretend to be a good American

            and yet you spread lies on the internet about the president. Very Patriotic.
            you spread lies about “training camps” kicked into high gear by the President.
            you spread lies about “martial law”

            does the con have ANY PROOF other than her wacky websites?

            you are the opposite of a Patriot.
            You are no better than ISIL with their campaign of lies and Propaganda on the internet.

            you worry about your grandchildren and are probably a climate change denier.

            YOU vote to let you grandkids suffer with a messed up planet.
            Bad Grandma.

            what backward state do you live in?

          • I never mentioned martial law. Take your meds and go to bed. God is in control of our climate not man. Socialism leads to your mental illness. God Bless America and deliver us from fools.

          • guess what fool.
            these “training camp” silliness have bee around since early 2000.

            So I guess the GW administration brought the in.

            here I have bloggers talking about them in 2003
            http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=125×719

            AND
            someone explaining the NUTTY fro the public.

            http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO301B.html

            nothing funnier than you cons falling for a decade old “scare”

          • Next you are going to say we have no mosques in America or towns being taken over by muslim. It is okay to be scared but facts are facts. This started before obama but he kicked it into high gear. We traded God for political correctness, socially acceptable and tolerance of evil for these are the tools used to destroy our way of life and freedom.

          • Tap dance away there silly human.

            So it was there before, under a CONSERVATIVE administration, BUT Obama of course, kicked it into high gear.

            listen to yourselves.
            twisting and turning as the fact roll out to try and keep you silly reality alive.

            Oh and then there is the lack of GOD.
            Now that explains everything,.

            the Religious icon of a Minority religion (based on global religion) is hardly a factor in keeping our country safe and sound, crazy religious enthusiast.

            Religion has been the cause of billions of humans suffering and death throughout time.

          • Scoffer, religions are of man not God. God and his laws are reality. Hopefully God will bring you to your knees so you may get right before judgement day. Free will to love God as he loves you or to follow the ways of evil. Good or evil, right or wrong with no grey area. This life we cling to so strongly is but a breath compared to eternal time. Fear not those who can cause the first death of the flesh but those who can bring about the second death of the soul. To be blotted out is to be as if you never existed. Your own mother will not remember your face. Your choice for God will cleanse the earth of all who do not love him. Those who follow Christ and abide by God’s laws are many. We are ready.

          • I wonder why your God is going to let the 6.5 billion people on the planet who DO NOT believe in him, perish in Hell?

            How is a kid in India going to find the Christian God and be saved?
            and 6.5 billion more.
            just going to Hell.

            God is one sick puppy letting them go to Hell for no reason.

            he needs to APPEAR and take away the BIG question.

            you know like he did to Moses.

            alas the mythical God has never been seen by anyone for thousands of years.
            and the only record of him is questionable to rational people.

          • God knows each and every heart. He knows how many hairs are on each head even yours. You don’t see the wind but you feel it. You can’t see your heart but you feel it. He love all his children and we are all his children. He gave us free will to love him back or to love the son of perdition. Those are the only two choices. You have made your choice and I pity you.

          • PS.
            IF there were training camps, on video no less, WHY would NO conservative in the FBI, CIA, NSA, Military NOT do ANYTHING ABOUT IT?

            I guess the critical thinker has not pondered that point.

            maybe all the cons in the military are just pussies and will let America fall, because they follow orders.

            is that your story silly con?

          • Answers are available and a hint is our very own CIA.

          • an hour ago it was all Obama.

            So who is in charge?
            Obama or the CIA?

            any conspiracy, all the time.
            that’s the conservative movement.

          • Wow, you are one socialist progressive. If you don’t acknowledge something it does not exist.

          • you seem to have dodged my question.
            not going to change the facts, you silly.

            You were all OBAMA until I point out your MISTAKEN and the “conspiracy” is OLD.

            Granny quickly changes her tune to the CIA DID IT!

            Next it will be the commies.

          • Who commands the CIA fool? You have no clue who is over our national security now do you? Or how many muslim are in our government now. Ignorance is a choice.

          • One has to wonder why you are NEVER specific.
            “Or how many muslim are in our government now”

            well silly human,
            WHY NOT TELL ME?

            along with some NAMES

            but no.
            then you have to have a FACT.
            they you can’t just run off at the mouth.

          • Your goal is to argue only. I do not engage facts when it is obvious you will just call names and act like a child. Truth is too far from you and you can’t handle the truth as too immature. If you wanted to know you would find out for yourself.

          • They are getting this from a lot of those extremely nutty websites and then gossip.

          • They are going to believe anything that goes along with their paranoia and their personal biases. What was the newspaper rag that had headlines like “An Alien is my Baby’s Father.” They would believe anything in it, if it was “Obama is my baby’s father” or “I saw Obama praying in a Mosque with ET.”

          • That’s all that a lot of commentators, watch or listen.

          • I agree, unfortunately, this lying fraud we have for president is going to declare martial law before any election ever happens. Our gutless, ball-less, shameless congress is the only one who can save us now (except for the hand of God) and they don’t have the balls to do ANYTHING. All they can do is shoot their mouths off and appear before cameras with all sorts of excuses, false promises and outright lies!

            obama is already doing a dry run of Jade Helm. Once he gets the kinks worked out, he will institute martial law and then we’re done. I never thought I’d see my country destroyed by a rotten piece of garbage like him.

          • “I agree, unfortunately, this lying fraud we have for president is going to declare martial law before any election ever happens”

            Unfortunately, you people are complete fools.

            tell me, how many of these conspiracy theories have come true so far?
            My favorite is “Obama is bringing in Ebola to kill us all”

            NONE is the correct answer.

            When are you low functioning cons going to get tired of “the boy who called Wolf”?

            promise me, when none of this comes true, say to yourself
            THE LIBERALS WERE RIGHT.

          • You libs are too ignorant to carry on a conversation, let alone an intelligent one.
            Research Jade Helm. Research information repository in Utah. There’s tons of evidence if you have enough sense to look for it. Call me back once you have something intelligent to say. Otherwise, don’t bother.

          • If you believe that Jade Helm is a radical plot, and the military is involved, then shouldn’t you want to close down military bases in your state? If the military in the Jade Helm exercise should be seen as the enemy, then all of the military should be seen that way. Very patriotic of you, but then again, you are nuts.

          • This is a surreptitious exercise – trial run – something you probably wouldn’t understand. I happen to have two family members in the “military” you moron, and they won’t talk about it.

            How about you open up what you depend on as your uninformed brain, and take a serious look at these many things that are going on. Of course, someone with your limited understanding probably wouldn’t recognize martial law even while you’re being drug off to one of the FEMA “camps” that are dotting the American landscape.

          • you’re even a Fema camp fool?

            Then there is little help for you.

            How many wacky friends have been sent to camps so far?

            based on your posts, you should have been sent off long ago.

            why you still here?
            the dictator not so powerful?

          • You again! Still a friggin idiot eh? I told you before I will not even try to hold a conversation with you. Why: Because you are an idiot and you’re a waste of my time. Go play on the freeway with some of your friends like Moron. errr Mogan.

          • so why respond?
            no self control?

          • do you talk about Fema camps in public?
            or just to your crazy con friends?

            you know Obama is sweeping up citizens and giving them a 3 day mental eval and then taking their guns.

            Since he IS a dictator, black shirts should be by your house soon.”and then maybe a stay in the Fema camps.

            HOW do Americans get this ignorant.

          • I don’t know why, but my response to you was deleted with no explanation. So, I guess I’m not allowed to say what I said. Sorry.

          • That is strange for it is not here but I got it on my email page. I agree.

          • I get censored often – even when what I say is no worse as what has already been said and allowed to appear. I guess maybe it’s my name?

          • I get censored a lot too and it has nothing to do with my name. I have been an online warrior since 07 trying to educate people so obama would not take our office illegally. Nobody would listen to my findings and here we are today.

          • imagine that.

            I NEVER get censored.

            maybe your just to low functioning to MAKE the post?
            you just think you did.

            much like you just “think” you know whats going on.

          • I think you took too many meds. Go to bed and sleep them off for you are not making sense at all now.

          • Funny, isn’t it that some can get by with some expressions and others can’t.

            You can’t educate idiots satwell … they’ve been immersed in the kool-aid so long that they’re all wrinkly and saturated with stupid.

            I’ve just written off Mogonnutcase and unReality Check because people like that can’t be reasoned with. They are too stupid to accept truth, so let them have their petulant ignorance. They seem to be happy with their ignorant circumstances, so i refuse to waste any more time on either of them. It will take Judgment Day to make them wise up!

          • I know but we are called to witness to them all the same and pray they come to repent. Once upon a time in this country it was so socially unacceptable to denounce God that ones would never voice it. We have come such a far way in the wrong direction and it is destroying us. The same was true of any woman who did not love their unborn and never would one speak of the gay lifestyle. God has to be so disappointed in us. He has given us so much yet many these days think they are the only ones who deserve praise. Giving up is never an option for me. God has blessed my life beyond measure of what I deserved so I can’t do enough for him ever. I can’t imagine going through life without God with me each and every day. This life is too hard to be alone.

          • It’s your duty to save me.

            So give me some proof to convert me to your way.

            That is all I’m asking.
            I get nothing

            Mind you, first we have to deal with all of your lying on the Internet.

            I think you are hardly the correct representative to be preaching when you are a habitual liar.

            God does not like liars as we know.

            And here you have been doing it since 2007?

            Shameful.

            And you call yourself a Christian?

          • I fully agree satwell, but there is the old saying….”You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink”. When people won’t listen or won’t at least check out what you’re trying to tell them, then I don’t waste my time on them. There are plenty out here who will listen and/or at least check out what you say.

          • You fools think there are FEMA camps and Obama has a secret army.
            (As well as being a secret Muslim from Kenya)

            Oh and I forgot, “believes in Judgment Day”

            Trust me, you are the last person I want saving me.

  37. America is falling apart — We are no longer a unified nation — We find fault with everyone else in the world but not ourselves — God gave us the greatest land on earth, we have the capability to do so much with the resource’s here and yet squander it for the sake of a dollar. Greed is a sickness, making allot of money for working hard and producing something of value is reasonable but paying athlete’s or a CEO’s astronomical amounts is sickening. The hippies started this slide and the last generation’s four have continued it . Burger King’s idea of having your way should be written on the dollar now. Ben Carson is 10000000 % percent right God/ Jesus Christ is the answer. If you don’t believe in him, act as if he is just an author and read his book its called the bible, in it he talks about the way we should be acting/treating each other and behaving , and his advise is free not and once is he selling you anything for 19.95. It covers everything that’s wrong with America and how we can correct it. We are all human and need help, believing you don’t — Is only a lying to yourself — Good luck

    • That hippie started it?

      Could Jim be anymore OUT TO LUNCH?

      The hippies ARE the tree hugger’s, the first to recycle, the first to give a damn about the environment, and you to blame the hippies, you little toad?

      Odd how you got from Greed for the mighty dollar, to hippies.
      Maybe if conservatives stopped voting for the party bought and by corporations, we wouldn’t be in this mess.

      Such ignorance is how we got here

      • Really, you were probably one of the draft dodging cowards that went to Canada. You provided comfort to the enemy in the time of war thinking your helping the boys overseas — You probably like Hanoi Jane. Greed is also a relative term, as a small mind you think in one dimension. — You think that by throwing an aluminum can in a recycle bin you are doing the world a big favor — Wake up, you are the problem — You care about the enviroment — that’s a joke, you and Al Gore only care that you get your way no matter the cost to the enviroment — Hippies like you were really wimps in a one on one situation and never stood for anything except themselves — As for being a toad, I like toads they at least do something of importance

  38. Michael Ackermann

    God bless Dr. Carson

  39. He’s correct.

  40. Nobody is telling Carson or you or me that we “cannot talk about God.” What Carson is whining about, in the final analysis, is the application of the Establishment Clause of the Constitution which, despite all the amateurish and specious contention to the contrary, does indeed establish the principle of separation of church and state. In his simplistic and UN-constitutional analysis of the matter, Carson reminds me of that arch-theocrat, Judge Roy Moore, who boringly and incessantly complained that the was “not allowed to acknowledge God.”
    His “acknowledgement,” of course, was that 5,280-pound Ten Commandments monument he sneaked into the Alabama Judiciary Building under cover of darkness. That “acknowledgement” got the stubborn Moore fired from his job as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. Forthwith, the little poseur embarked on a speaking tour, traveling all over the country, freely acknowledging God and accepting speaker’s fees for doing so.

    Acknowledge God, my friends, but do not co-opt the engines of government to advance your personal belief system!

  41. It is about time a presidential candidate has the backbone to stand up and speak this way. I am Caucasian, Christian, 64 years of age. Dr. Carson is very impressive, intelligent, and appears to be a nice person and sincere in his bid for the White House and intentions for all American people. He is worth considering.

    • Sorry, but you can’t with the presidency if you don’t believe in climate science.

      Millennial’s are not going to stand for this screwing up the planet that the older generation could care less about.
      They will flock to any candidate committed to saving the planet, and run as fast as they can from the deniers

  42. Praise God for a man who is NOT afraid to speak the truth .Jesus promised that if we acknowledge Him He will acknowledge us if we deny Him He will deny us.Now if ALL followers of Christ will speak up & pray perhaps God will hear & answer & heal our nation. 2Chron. 7:14

  43. A man’s color is not the issue.It is whether he knows the problems & knows what to do w/ God’s help & wise advisers.Rise up America PRAY 2Chron. 7:14

    • The forbidden foreigner king.

      Deut 17:15 Thou shalt in any wise set [him] king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: [one] from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which [is] not thy brother.

  44. Morgan, No….it is not delusional, ovomit could care less about Americans, white, black, Christian, Jew…….he’s muslem why do you think he wont even utter the word terroist???????, I think you have drunk toooooooooo much of that kool-aid the left are drinking

  45. Voluntary God is on thing. Mandatory God is another. NEVER should we have the latter. If this country does, may it fall forever.

    • Sadly all who do not believe in God will be the ones to fall forever. Being blotted out is as if one never existed. Your own mother will not remember your face. This country was built on values based on God and his laws. I know man wants to take all the credit. America has been until recently under God’s protection but no more due to ones with your attitude. We traded God and his laws for political correctness, socially acceptable and tolerance of evil. This is what our enemy is using to make us weak to bring us down. Be wiser than the serpent.

      • GOD THE MASS MURDERER.
        you know what I am talking about silly religious nut.

        • All who are evil must be destroyed to save the good and kind. God is good always. He is the first disciplinarian. The flesh body is not important compared to our soul and eternity. You sir are too far from truth to see it.

  46. Reality check, your name suits you…..ok lets just wait it out and see who really needs the reality check…..keep drinking
    He’s the most, unequivocally, the worse president we have ever had. Don’t care what he calls it in Kenya, he needs to go back there and stay!!!!

    • So Sandi gets smacked down over the terrorist issue and I am the one who is clueless?

      The US has the best economy of the G-20. sounds like a good president.
      does that sound like a terrible job after the GOP imploded the global economy?

      sandi listens to too much HATE radio.
      rots your brain.

      • Reality Check, Keep drinking that kool-aid!!!!!!!

        • Cons always cave and bail.

          NOTHING they believe IN they can prove.
          yet they cling to “IT” like their lives depend on IT.

          FACTS?
          cons don’t need facts.
          they have Hate radio to tell them WHAT TO BELIEVE

        • Reality check, please don’t assume to know me! I do not listen to hate radio. I don’t need anyone to convince me of anything. I have eyes and I see the demise of America, I hear the lies. I can’t wait for him to GET out. Too bad presidents have diplomatic immunity, because if I were the Kenyan President I’d have thrown him in jail. He was told “DO NOT” speak about homosexuality during his speach because it is a crime , in Kenya, but the fool did anyway.
          That Kenyan leader should have thrown him in jail and kept is arrogant azz over there.

          I vote for Dr. Ben Carson for 2016, if there is an election at all!!!!!

          Trump has a lot of good sense ideas and ways to get them done and he wont have to be controlled by the puppeteers, he won’t be bought!!!!! But then neither will Carson.

          They will make this country the land of the free again. And we won’t have to worry about our guns being confiscated.

          • “I do not listen to hate radio. I don’t need anyone to convince me of anything. I have eyes and I see the demise of America’

            If you don’t listen to hate radio, when you get these greasy facts, crazy ideas.

            So what have your eyes seen, that tell you America is in demise?

            Oh, on hate TV.(Fox News)?

            And what makes Sandi think there won’t be an election?

            You saw something with your eyes that told you that too?

            Sandy has to be listening to right wing propaganda somewhere.
            You don’t get this crazy in the real world.

          • Reality check, I am super conservative, but not due to fox. Why do you continue to ASS UME to think you know me. This country has already been affected by this administration. I guess you even believe killery hasn’t lied about her emails…..or received confidential emails on her personnal server…..
            I didn’t vote for this POTUS the first time, let alone the 2nd time.
            I have a brain and I think for myself.
            You are so far left with your thinking I don’t think you “think” at all!
            You just ride the tide with all the other libtards.

          • So why not just answer my questions instead of telling me your life story?

          • What reality check are your questions? All I’ve bern reading is your condeming me for watching hate radio and fox…….
            As for a 2016 election not happening, I don’t put anything past the fool in the WH. They say there is more truth in comedy than not. He has, too many times, eluded to running a 3rd term. Now that is totally against the constitution, but hes gone beyond and round about the construction on too many occasions. All he has to do is have one racial devide worse than Furgeson or Baltimore (paid rioters from out of state) come and add fuel to the fire in all instances. One good reason to warrent calling martial law and he’s in again.
            You can say I’m crazy all you want, but I believe what I believe. He’s just too sneaky, and flip flops too much.
            He will do what FDR did in 1945.
            Why don’t you tell me what you think is so good about him????

          • “I guess you even believe killery hasn’t lied about her emails”

            I think I will wait until the Justice Department finishes the investigation.

            Take Benghazi for example, the conservatives in Congress have investigated it seven times.

            Each investigation exonerated her.

            These emails have nothing to do with Benghazi, you that doesn’t stop the right wing propaganda machine from trying to convince you people IT MIGHT BE “a smoking gun”

            The country has indeed been affected by this administration.

            Your insurance company can no longer kill you.
            Your insurance company can no longer deny you coverage.
            Your kids can now stay their policy until they are 26.
            You get free yearly checkups.

            All those things sound better than the way health insurance was before.
            No I didn’t lose my doctor.
            No my rates didn’t go up.
            No I didn’t lose my insurance.

            No he didn’t lie.

            Obama turned our economy around from the implosion generated by the greedy GOP,
            we are now the strongest economy in the G 20.

            http://www.foxbusiness.com/markets/2015/01/14/us-economy-lone-bright-spot-as-global-outlook-getting-worse/

            The envy in fact, of the G 20 countries who are about to go back into recession.

            So Sandy, I have laid out quite clearly why the country is doing much better under Obama then it was the GOP and YOU have provided ZERO evidence, other than “you saw it with your own eyes.”

            What you saw of course you won’t say, “but you know because you saw it”

          • PS.
            Personally I hope she drops out of the race and gives all her money to Bernie Sanders.

            Bernie is going to win.
            Many conservative heads will explode.

            It will be a great day in America

  47. There is NO case to be made for God in politics. God is an mythical character, no different from Zeus, Odin, Allah, or the Tooth Fairy. Politics is serous business! Injecting belief systems base on lies and myths, especially a belief in some invisible guy-in-the-sky, into it is very DANGEROUS for us all!
    Please read The End of Faith; Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason by Sam Harris.

    • God and his laws are reality. He loves you but gave you free will to love him or the son of perdition and his ways. Poor choice. Fear not those who can cause the first death of the flesh but the second death of the soul. This life is but a breath compared to eternal time. Taking other people opinions and making them your own is a dangerous game you are playing. God is not in the sky by right next to you watching everything to say and do.

      • “God and his laws are reality.”
        What proof do you have that God is real?

        “He loves you”
        So God loves us……so much that he created us with sin (although the idea of Original Sin is absolutely/obviously/completely ridiculous) and then sacrificed his only son to provide us with salvation? If this God is all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-good, why didn’t he just forgive us himself and be done with it? Or a question more to the point would be why did he create us with sin in the first place? Why did he create us sick and then command us to be well?

        “Life is but a breath compared to eternal time”
        Nobody has to worry about “eternal time”; this life is all we have.
        Heaven, hell and an afterlife are just fairy tales. These things were created by religion specifically for the purpose of controlling and enslaving people; ditto for the “soul”.

        “Taking other people opinions and making them your own is a dangerous game you are playing.”
        An opinion is a belief not based on positive knowledge.
        Positive knowledge is knowledge based on verifiable facts.
        There is nothing that Sam Harris wrote in his book, The End of Faith that was his opinion; all of the information in that book was factual and verifiable.

        “God is not in the sky by (but?) right next to you watching everything to (you?) say and do.”
        This God of yours sounds like a threatening/dangerous control freak and a psychotic voyeur.
        Your world must be one filled with extreme paranoia.
        Seriously. You should read the book I mentioned……or get professional help.

        • Scoffer, such a shame. Do you believe in the wind? Why, it can’t be seen. Do you believe your heart is in your chest? Why, you can’t see it. We feel the wind and the beat of our hearts. Why aren’t you afraid the clouds will fall on your head? It is just reality. God created us for his pleasure. He gave us free will to love him as he loves us. He regretted making us in the flesh and like most parents thought his children would not be tempted by the serpent. We are a disappointment. My life is filled with peace and calm. I have been blessed with a big family. That is not saying I have lived without pain and suffering for that is life in the flesh. I fear not the death of the flesh but choose to not suffer the second death of the soul. I pity you for being so alone. I can’t imagine going through life without God always close. He is awesome and he knows every head on your head. He loves all his children and we are all his children but he is also the first disciplinarian. He will not allow the evil ones to destroy his good loving children. You sir are the one who sounds afraid and paranoid. You should read the Bible and fall to your knees begging forgiveness for misleading others with your warped views. God can bless you with peace and comfort if only you repent.

          • “Scoffer, such a shame.”
            Believer in the unbelievable, how pathetic.

            “Do you believe in the wind? Why, it can’t be seen”
            The wind is caused by differences in temperature in adjacent portions of the atmosphere. These difference can be located, identified, and measured. Furthermore, the effect of the wind can be seen, felt, and heard with our senses. None of this is true of the God of Christianity or of the gods of any other religions.

            “Do you believe your heart is in your chest? Why, you can’t see it.”
            The heart in our chests can be seen using an X-ray machine, and its beating can be felt and measured using medical devices. The same is not true of the God of Christianity or of the gods of any other religions.

            “God created us for his pleasure.”
            If it was true that god created us (a myth) for his pleasure, how considerate of him.

            “He gave us free will”
            No supernatural being gave us free will; we have free will because of our ability to think and reason.
            We have the ability to think and reason because we have a brain.
            We have a brain because of evolution and the workings of natural selection.

            I would hope that you can see where this is going: to Disneyland with your fallacious beliefs, and to reality with the truths I have provided.
            As for the rest of what you wrote, it’s just the usual religiously inspire babbling that one would expect from a delusional person trying desperately to support their belief in the unbelievable.
            The Bible is a work of fiction; what else would you call a book that mentions a man being born of a virgin, walking on water, curing a leper with a touch of his hand, feeding hundreds of people with a single loath of bread and a single fish, a man who, after being horribly murdered, rose from the grave, Dracula-like, and magically floated up into the clouds, and (and this one is my all-time favorite) a snake that talked.

          • Wow, what a sad. pathetic, lonely soul you must be. Talk to me on judgement day when you are trying to back peddle. Darwin? Take the word and ways of man over your Creator. Being blotted out will mean you never existed. Your own mother will not remember your face but hey that is your choice. You are making your life a work of fiction. I pity you sir.

          • “Wow, what a sad. pathetic, lonely soul you must be.”
            Wow! The extent of your religious delusion is sickening.

            “Talk to me on judgement day when you are trying to back peddle”
            There will be no “judgement day”; judgement day is just a fairy tale like all the rest of Christianity’s dogma.

            “Darwin?”
            There is a mountain of fosil, genetic, DNA, biochemical, molecular, and scientific evidence that supports Darwin’s Theory of evolution; there is absolutely NO evidence that supports creation.

            “Take the word and ways of man over your Creator.”
            I take reason and reality over systems of belief based on lies and myths.

            “Being blotted out will mean you never existed.”
            Your lack of respect for factual reality makes you worthless as long as you cling to that lack.

            “Your own mother will not remember your face but hey that is your choice.”
            My mother had an excellent memory. She could, for instance, remember things like……Oh,I don’t know……the way Catholic priests sexually assaulted and abused young children and how the Church turned a blind eye to this and even aided the priests is this sickness by failing to notify the police and simply sending the priests to new diocese where they would have a whole new crop of children to assault..

            “You are making your life a work of fiction.”
            Neither my life nor that of anyone else is fiction; fiction and lies are what the beliefs of all religions are based on.

            “I pity you sir.”
            Save your pity for yourself; with respect to your religious beliefs, you are delusional.
            Please cure yourself.

          • God loves all his children and we are all his children. May he have mercy on your soul to bless you with peace and comfort when you do repent. We all answer for those we mislead in this life. All will know truth before judgement. God Bless America.

          • What I will say one thing, you certainly have conviction.

            Dumb as a rock, ignorant as a radish, but plenty of conviction.

          • So I threw a seed on a rock. All I can do is try and the rest is up to God. If he wants you he will get you if not too far gone and have chosen the ways of the son of perdition. All wisdom comes from above but arrogance, pride, with no natural love for your fellow man comes from evil. Sad.

          • “God loves all his children and we are all his children.”
            I am the child of my mother and father and of no one else.
            You are the child of your mother and father and of no one else.
            There is no God anymore than there is a Zeus, an Odin, an Allah, or a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

            “May he have mercy on your sou”
            There is no such thing as a soul.
            The word “soul” and the idea of such a thing was created by religion as an instrument to use to control and enslave people.

            “(May he) bless you with peace and comfort when you do repent.”
            Exactly what is it that I should repent for?
            The Original Sin that I supposedly committed BEFORE I was even born?
            Can’t you see how absolutely CRAZY that is?

            “We all answer for those we mislead in this life.”
            We all answer?
            To whom?
            Some of mislead others and some of us are mislead.
            That’s life and reality.

            “All will know truth before judgement.”
            The truth is that there will be no judgement (day).

            “God Bless America.”
            What a stupid thing to say!
            You might as well have said, “Zeus Bless America”, “Allah Bless America”, or “Mighty Mouse Bless America”.

            Please cure yourself of your delusion.
            A first step to doing that would be to go to youtube and watch the short video there entitled, How Do We Know That Christians Are Delusional (don’t worry; the video also addresses Mormonism and Islam).
            Another step would be to read Sam Harris’s book, The End of Faith.

          • What do you get out of the sale of this man’s book? I turned on God years ago when I lost my four month old baby. I too cursed him but I guess I was worth saving for he showed himself to me in a real and tangible way. The difference was I was not hard hearted or closed minded as you.

          • “What do you get out of the sale of this man’s book?”
            Financially, nothing, nor did I ever expect to.
            I do get the satisfaction of knowing that one more human being will be exposed to the truth about religion and, as a result, may come to see it for the ridiculous farce that Harris reveals it to be.

            “I turned on God years ago when I lost my four month old baby.”
            Sorry to hear that you lost your four month old baby; you have my sympathy. I can’t even imagine what that must have been like for you but I’m sure it must have been a most terrible thing to deal with.
            But in your time of need and suffering, you would have done much better to have turned to a living person for comfort and support rather than turning to a mythical supernatural being. You can call another person up when you need to talk to someone; you can’t call up a God who isn’t here and exists only in your imagination.

            “I too cursed him”
            “I too cursed him..”?
            Too?
            Too as in also?
            Who else did you know then who was cursing God?
            But as for cursing God for your loss of your child, it is just as foolish to curse God for a misfortune as it would be to thank him for some instance of good fortune; God doesn’t exist; he’s just a myth, no different from that of Zeus, Odin, or Allah, or any of the other gods of any of the other religions.

            “but I guess I was worth saving”
            Saving?
            Saving from………?

            “for he showed himself to me in a real and tangible way”
            Here’s what really happened: the intensity of your sorrow and desperation was so great that your self-conscience mind kicked in and used the power of your imagination to create, or re-support the idea of, a big friend for you to lean on………. although this big friend didn’t really exist outside of your imagination.

            “The difference was I was not hard hearted or closed minded as you.”
            Hard hearted?
            What do you believe is “hard hearted” about sharing the truth with another.
            And “closed minded” is a description that truly fits believers, not me.
            “Philosophy is questions that may never be answered; religion is answers that may never be questioned.” Author unknown.

            I think I know where you are now in your journey through life. You probably feel overwhelmed, vulnerable, and alone, and need relief and comfort. Needing those things is natural; finding those things is necessary. But facing reality always beats seeking a false sense of security and trying to pretend that it’s real in spite of the evidence to the contrary.
            Seriously. Get Harris’s The End of Faith and read it. I think you might be pleasantly surprised and well rewarded for your effort..
            Have a better tomorrow.

          • Wow, you sir are one lost soul. As for me that baby would now be 43 and I have been blessed with more children and many grandchildren. I am in a good place and my days are good with God in my every moment. I pity you falling for ways of man to satisfy yourself or possibly justify your life choices. I have, as many have, had much loss in my life but that comes with being from a large family, blessing have always been greater. I pity any who do not have a close personal relationship with God but you have not only closed that door but nailed it shut. God is a reality, he created the heavens and earth and gave you free will to not love him. He knows your heart.

          • “Wow, you sir are one lost soul”
            Wow! You didn’t, or couldn’t, reply to anything i wrote in my last reply.
            And, FYI, there is no “soul”; the idea of a soul is a creation of religion specifically intended to be used to control and enslave people.

            “As for me that baby would now be 43 and I have been blessed with more children and many grandchildren.”
            You weren’t “blessed with” more children; you gave birth to them in accordance with the laws of nature.
            Too bad all those children are having their tender, woefully impressionable little minds poisoned by you and their parents with the sickness of religious dogma.

            “I am in a good place and my days are good with God in my every moment.”
            If your place and days are good only because you entertain the fantasy of a supernatural being, you are in a most precarious place indeed.
            Of course, ignorance is bliss…

            “I pity you falling for ways of man to satisfy yourself or possibly justify your life choices”
            My ways are the ways of reason; your ways are the ways of self-delusion; save the pity for yourself.

            “blessing(s?) have always been greater.”
            Good things and bad things happen in life regardless of your religion or lack thereof; there are no “blessings” because there is no supernatural being to give them.

            “I pity any who do not have a close personal relationship with Go”
            I prefer to have close personal relationships with real people; you insistence on having personal relationships with with imaginary beings is a sign of your self-delusional state.
            Again, save the pity for yourself.

            ” but you have not only closed that door but nailed it shut”
            Reason nails shut the door to irrationality.

            “God is a reality, he created the heavens and earth and gave you free will to not love him”
            The God of Christianity, like the gods of all other religions, is not real or part of reality; he is the creation of human being’s imagination and wishful thinking.
            No supernatural being created “the heavens and earth”.
            How the earth came to be has already been established by science.
            How the heavens (the universe) came to be no one knows.
            But not knowing the answer to a question, especially one like this, does not serve as proof of anything, and certainly not as proof that everything was created by some supernatural being.
            The argument that because we don’t know how the universe was created, we have to conclude that God created it is called an argument from ignorance.
            And it doesn’t stand.

          • Death to your soul then, the second death. I knew one other person like you denying God, arrogantly smarter with the know it all attitude. One can change their mind when told they have three months to live but far too late for have caused the death of others. One can act with reckless abandon like a child when they choose not to acknowledge their own soul. This world, people and animals all just happened. Do you hear yourself. Sound like a three year old saying “I know everything”. Done with you, attention is all you want. Too shallow to think beyond what you read last. A reed blowing in the wind.

          • “the second death”?
            Nobody can die twice; how crazy are you?

            “One can change their mind when told they have three months to live”
            One can change their mind at any time, in any circumstance, for any any reason, although a good reason is best. Choosing to suddenly believe in God because one learns that they have only three months to live is beyond a bad reason; it’s no reason at all.

            “One can act with reckless abandon like a child when they choose not to acknowledge their own soul.”
            Reckless abandon of one’s reason is the only excuse for believing in a non-existant thing like a soul.

            “This world, people and animals all just happened.”
            Evolution and natural selection have nothing to do with things just happening; get educated.

            “Sound like a three year old saying “I know everything”. ”
            Funny that you should accuse me of claiming to know everything; it’s believers who claim to know things that nobody knows. based on a book of fiction written over 2,000 years ago in a time and place in which ignorance and superstition ruled and everyone believed that the earth was flat.

            “Done with you, attention is all you want.”
            I do not seek attention; I give it to those I chose……often out of pity…

            “Too shallow to think beyond what you read last.”
            It’s you who are not only shallow but self-delusional; you have chosen to live your life according to a set of beliefs based on the contents of a book of fiction (the Bible) written over 2,000 years ago in a time and
            place in which ignorance and superstition ruled and everyone believed
            that the earth was flat.

        • I am begging you to stick around my friend, I can use articulate brethren in the war on stupidity.

          One has to admit, whoever thought this up, this right wing propaganda thing, is brilliant.

  48. God Bless Dr. Carson and America. We need you Ben, stand strong.

  49. Morgan ur a good person but Ur facts on Obama dont cover the whole scope of the 6 year 13 trillion dollar mess he has put us into ,Obamacare has ruined health Ins rates and does very little of what he promised, he acts as if hes a king with all the after midnight laws he passed without congress and wants to make the illegals all good Democrat voters(no I D Checks) and I m tired of wasting my time because U probably dont get it sorry for U…………..

    • Psst Clint.
      Obama has only raised the debt by 7 trillion.

      so I guess the rest of your “facts” are equally questionable?

      How does the Pres Pass a law PERIOD, let alone “after midnight”.

      see Clint, the pres SIGNS the bill AFTER the congress passes them.

      people this shy on reality should not be able to vote.

  50. We are a bit under 19 trill he started at just over 7 do the math and just as I thought all the mandates he passed without approval were illegal so U might do a bit more checking he will soon pass 13 trillion and U know it what makes him such a poor Pres are too numerous to mention ask anyone with a brain if U cant figure this out, and dont worry about my voting abilities I not brain dead like U I m a Conservative and Ur Pal Obama is the worst Pres in U S History………………….

    • Well Clint, first you should learn to respond to ME.
      secondly we are just approaching 18 trillion,
      and thirdly
      Obama took office with a 11.5 T debt.
      YOU ARE IGNORANT

  51. Have U forgot about the “Other 3 !/2 Trill” Ur so smart figure it out and by the way since U are a Democrat and U still believe in Obama whose IGNORANT ? U are intelligent and profoundly ignorant at the same time get some help…………………

    • you have to learn to post TO MY POST.

      We call it a REPLY.

      what 3.5 trillion are you speaking of.

      can you look it up first Clint.

      So far your “facts” have BEEN WRONG, BIG TIME.

      I still believe ANY democrat is better than a CON, in all walks of life, including politics.

      Bernie Sanders in going to win by the way.
      My God told me.

      lets look at history shall we?

      has ANY Liberal advancement EVER been Rolled Back?

      the short answer is NO CLINT it has NEVER happened.

      and lets not forget, the FF were the liberals of the day, AND you LOVE them.

  52. Like it or not, this country is led by a great many who do believe in God. Religion cannot always be separate from politics because, unlike many religions, Christianity is a state of being, not just a set of rules. But there are millions of pretenders out there that are a danger.

    • ” But there are millions of pretenders out there that are a danger.”
      a Danger?

      to themselves?
      to mankind?
      to….

      MY God has told ME specifically that I am right and YOU are wrong, so……
      AND he said he is much bigger than your God.

  53. Given a choice, I’d vote for the religious candidate every time. Humble, yet strong in character, with a good moral compass and will fight for what’s right and good instead of bowing to social, secular and economic pressures.

    • I don’t really find any comfort having an evangelical president, who gets the feeling that he is meant to start Armageddon.

      And now he has the means to do it.

      No freaking way.

      Ted Cruz’s father actually thinks God wants him to win, and that the presidency is his destiny in the name of God.

  54. I will post where I want, I knew U wouldnt know,the only thing Ive done wrong is waste my time talking to U , call god again and tell him U were cheated when it came to manners and calling me a con I will take any day instead of being a low rent democrat liberal who at this time is doing all they can to remove god from the government , and if U stick around a little while ,U will see 75% of Obama s messes (advancements) rolled back and this is a reply stupid !

    • I find it very amusing Clint, that you can’t seem to post your responses directly to me.

      Not a good sign.

      You are indeed allowed to post here whenever you want to.
      Said you couldn’t?

      Are you making things up again Clint?

      “a low rent democrat liberal who at this time is doing all they can to remove god from the government ”
      I have more news for you Clint.

      God is not in the government.

      We are a secular country.
      SECULAR:
      “denoting attitudes, activities, or other things that have no religious or spiritual basis”

      I’m sure Clint is aware that the word God is not of the Constitution.
      That the word Christianity is not in the Constitution.

      That there is no mention of the Bible, or its teachings, or its laws, in the Constitution.

      If anything the Constitution gets its roots from the Magna Carta and the Mason Constitution, with a little hint of Deist.

      The only time the word God occurs is here:

      “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people
      to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another,
      and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal
      station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a
      decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should
      declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

      AND the LAWS OF NATURE and NATURE’S GOD are both
      Deist terms.

  55. When you don’t elect God fearing people to office then you end up with these demonic ghouls that are hell-bent on enslaving you. This current Satan worshipping regime is a good example! The people have turned away from God and are now suffering the consequences for having done so! They would rather be ruled by evil despots than to be ruled by a loving God.

    • “This current Satan worshipping regime is a good example!”

      So much for reality.

      “They would rather be ruled by evil despots”
      Where God’s name do you conservatives get this stupid shit?

      What moron on the radio are you listening to the tells you this crap, and what evidence around you makes you want to believe it?

      Is it around you, not the crap on hate radio, not the crap you see on Fox News,
      but around you in your neighborhood in your city?

      What leads you to believe that liberals want to be ruled by an evil despot.

      You truly have to be a delusional human being, to even consider this crap.

      • FOOL, your about to find out that is what you and your secularists are! We are about to experience which one of us is right!

  56. God is mentioned through out ,pledge of allegence might be one, there are others, just like a good Dem aren t U keeping god as separate as possible and telling us U spoke to god and Ur man Bernie will win . Only if he can work his way to get the illegals to vote for him…………ONE NATION UNDER GOD…………GET IT! Done wasting my time with U , this is my last reply, find someone else s chain to pull .the slack in mine is all used up

    • I didn’t even know you were talking to me Clint.

      “God is mentioned through out”
      No Clint it’s not.
      Jesus fool, the word God is not in the freaking Constitution.

      Go read the damn thing and prove it to yourself.
      Just because you are old does not mean you have to be ignorant.

      I personally don’t believe in God Clint,
      I think it’s a fairytale that low functioning humans believe in.

      Does Clint know that Bernie Sanders pulled an audience of 5000 people in Louisiana?
      In the same room that Bobby Jindal only had 1000 people?

      Does Clint know that Bernie pulled an audience of 13,000 people in red state Arizona?

      Does Clint know that Bernie pulled 5000 people in red state Texas?

      I guess there’s a lot of socialists living in the red states.

      This is actually not a reply, Clint.

      You don’t seem to be capable of a reply, you keep posting NEW items.

      To reply you click on the word REPLY.

  57. Ben Carson is a retired Neuro-surgeon they are in a classified group of their own, he would make the best Surgeon General and also the head of the FDA and EPA. Not President, Herman Cain and all of his people back him , I also believe that Colin Powell backs him, 80% of the democrats are Jehovah Witnesses that why the democrats have to work hard on campaigning, bring in all illegal immigrants for votes. Jehovah Witnesses don’t vote but they will take.

  58. I was for Dr. Ben and I think he is a good man, but when he said that he would not be against same sex civil unions. It made me wonder what else he might compromise on.
    We can’t call right what God calls wrong no matter how you categorize it.

    • No one who is against gay marriage is going to win the presidency.
      Same with climate change.
      If you’re not on the climate change bandwagon you are toast.

      Millennial’s are not going to put up with this shit

      • It doesn’t matter anyway. God’s in total control even of the out of control. No one is gonna get away with anything.
        It’s appoint unto man once to die and after death comes judgement. The ones that oppose God and his righteousness their gonna be toast….BURNT TOAST!!!!

  59. In this free land, one can “talk about God” or religion to one’s heart’s content, but it is not constitutionally permissible to co-opt the resources of civil government to promote or endorse a particular belief system.
    But this simple and correct fact seems to have escaped the understanding of theocratically-inclined right wingers.

    The Declaration of Independence indeed makes reference to God, but when the founders and the framers of the Constitution got down to the business of writing that document, which is the blueprint for laws and governance of this Nation, they wisely chose to mention religion only in a limited way, and in both cases by way of prohibitions.
    Our Constitution prohibits any religious test for public office. The First Amendment prohibits the enactment of any laws respecting an establishment of religion and prohibits any law that would constrain the free exercise of religion. Despite the ultraconservative doctrine to the contrary, there IS Constitutionally-prescribed separation of Church and State, and no amount of attempted proof-texting from predecessor documents (e.g. Mayflower Compact or Declaration of Independence) changes that one whit. If you dispute that, check out the Judge Roy Moore story. That little pandering poseur, in his failed effort to justify his placement of a massive 10 Commandments monument in the Alabama Judiciary Building (under cover of darkness, by the way) complained that he was not “allowed to acknowledge God.”His unconstitutional action got him kicked out of his office as Chief Justice of Alabama. Having been relieved of his judicial duties, Moore embarked on an extensive speaking tour, where he acknowledged God all over the country, accepting speaker’s fees for doing so.

  60. And then he endorses the Anti-Christian attitude toward the Syrian refugees. the Anti-Christian attitude of Republicans is appalling.
