Most women fell for the BS "war on women" mantra the democrats rolled out. I'm not surprised. I'd venture to say the majority of women don't follow current affairs and are too busy watching Survivor or Dancing With the Stars. You have to really be ignorant to believe conservatives have a war on women. I'm pretty sure conservatives have wives, mothers and daughters they love and respect. Can people be this gullible to believe the propaganda this incompetent president spits out? I guess so. Hopefully people will wake up and vote against Hillary. Another phony, lying liberal will tear this country down to the point of no return.
The one that contracted.
They are exempt from using Obamacare because they are better than us and more important. Funny how Obama's is exempt from his signature piece of legislation that bears his name.
Of course fences work. Visit any prison in the U.S. and tell me there aren't any barbed wired fences surrounding the compound. Build a fence and make it electric. Post signs that state if you touch the fence there is s possibility you die from electrocution. After a few deaths or hospital visits you'll see how much the illegal immigration issue is cut down.

Jesus is never quoted in the New Testament as having directly addressed rape, incest, domestic violence or homosexual behavior. So are we supposed to believe all these practices are okay with Him? Gospel writer and apostle John tells us there are many teachings and deeds of Christ that are not included in their New Testament accounts (John 21:25). Christ is quoted at one point that God created people “in the beginning” as male and female, and that marriage is the union of one man and one woman joined together as “one flesh.” (Matthew 19:4-6 and Mark 10:6-9) Nothing is said about any other type of union. When He discussed sexual morality, Christ had a very high standard, clearly affirming long-standing Old Testament law. Christ used the destruction of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah as dramatic examples of God’s wrath (Matthew 10:15, Mark 6:11, Luke 10:12, and Luke 17:29). Throughout the Old Testament, prophets described these cities as being notorious for the practice of homosexuality. (Genesis 18:20, Genesis 19:4-5, Isaiah 3:9, Jeremiah 23:14, Ezekiel 16:46-59). Jesus certainly knew that this was how the comparison would be understood. Most important of all, Christ was God incarnate (in the flesh) here on earth. He was the long-expected Messiah, Emmanuel (which means "God with us"). This was revealed in Matthew 16:13- 20, Matthew 17:5-9, Mark 8:27-30, Luke 4:16-30, Luke 9:18-21,John 4:25-26, John 8:57-59 and elsewhere. As one with God, He was present from the beginning of creation (John 1: 1-13; Colossians 1:15-17; Ephesians 3:9 and elsewhere). So, Jesus was God as the laws were handed down through Moses to Israel and eventually to the whole world. This Old Testament law clearly prohibited homosexuality (Genesis 19, Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13; Deuteronomy 23:18 and elsewhere). The apostles understood this also, as shown by Paul’s writing in Romans 1:24-27, Peter’s in 2 Peter 2:4-22, and John’s in Revela

Eric, So, the reason that Christians don’t have a problem mixing fabrics or eating pork or shellfish is not because we’re picking and choosing which biblical commands we follow. Neither were the commands culturally conditioned. Rather, they were covenantally conditioned. It’s actually because those commands, which belonged to the Mosaic Covenant, have been fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ, who is the Mediator of a new and better covenant. We actually obey the commands of the Law not by carrying them out ourselves, but by looking to Jesus as their fulfillment and trusting Him to provide the righteousness that those commands couldn’t produce. That’s why Paul says in that same passage in Galatians 3: Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, so that we may be justified by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor (Gal 3:24–25).

You're actually comparing the non-hiring of blacks or Jews to the government trying to coerce a religious, Christian, family owned business, to supply women with pills to kill off their baby? You're either trolling or a complete moron.

First of all, that's what's known as an "argument from silence;" a logical fallacy. By this rule Jesus would be made to endorse rape, cannibalism and lots of other nasty stuff. Secondly, we cannot know whether Jesus, in His brief earthly ministry, ever mentioned homosexual sin specifically (see John 21:25), so the claim can't be substantiated. But the slogan is not only unverifiable and non-rational; it reveals ignorance of what we know Jesus did say. Though His teachings recorded in the gospels don't directly address the issue of same-sex sex, the Scriptures leave no room for an honest reader to conclude that Christ condones any sin, including this one. In addition, Jesus came to fulfill prophecy not change God's law, which is His law. Everywhere homosexuality is mentioned in the Bible it is condemned. Jesus is God and since He is, what he said in the Old Testament about homosexuality doesn't go away.

Aborting a baby has nothing to do with women's reproductive or health rights. It has nothing to do with any health matters. As if having an abortion cures one of some disease. It's simply a form of birth control to women who find pregnancy as an inconvenience to their lifestyle. In fact, 97% of abortions in the country are conducted because being pregnant and having a baby interferes with a women's social life. At most, 1% of abortions are completed due to a women being raped.

What a turn around from a president who was against gay marriage throughout his adult life and called himself a Christian. Can this president be anymore of a dangerous tool?

I remember a time when gay people just wanted to be left alone and that what they did in the privacy of their own homes was nobody's business. Now, they don't just want to be recognized as equals to heterosexuals, in marriage, for example, they want their lifestyle to be celebrated. Now, the radical gay lobby wants it shoved down everyone's throat and thrown in your face, and if you don't accept them and celebrate their lifestyle you're called homophobic or sued. Thanks for the advice, but Christians don't need advice from atheists.
