Sounds like you maybe part of a rather large group of people who have issues with the Republicans, but also don't feel at home with the Democrats. I'm in that bunch too. I tend to tolerate the social stances of the GOP because they seem less destructive to the economy. But given the choice, I'd much rather have a candidate who stayed out of my bedroom & my wallet.

Any church that changes the message to fit the times, is not Christian. They are preaching a false doctrine that will only lead their followers to hell.

There are more ChurchGoers among Democrats than is commonly acknowledged at places like this website.
NBC's sitcom "The New Normal" isn't just trying to remake society for the Gay Left. It's trying to remake Christianity, which is to say, destroy it. For its October 22 episode, "The Godparent Trap," NBC ran promos with the gay character Brian in the confessional, and the priest sneering, "If you're not going to take this seriously, I'm going to go back to playing Angry Birds."

As the plot unfolds, we're told Brian was raised Catholic, and as he sits in a pew and looks around at religious pictures, he cracks gay jokes in his mind. He sees the Apostles:...
