DagNabbit - I'm sorry you feel that way. Apparently you've not come to know the real Jesus. I pray that, perhaps, one day you will. And I mean that; I will pray for you. I suspect that on some level that probably irritates you because you don't want me to pray for you but at the same time there's really nothing you can do about it. Sorry about that. Also, I can understand, to a point, why you feel the way you do. Christians can say some pretty horrible things and can display some very outrageous behaviors. But I emphasize, SOME can, not all of them, and I would even go so far as to say not most of them. Try not to judge the Church by it's members actions, but on what it actually teaches, brotherly love, compassion, self sacrifice.

Along with all of those bad examples of 'christians' out there, there are also many examples of people who are trying to live their lives looking to Christ as their inspiration. If you're going to judge the Church, do so by looking at those who live according to Church teaching, not those who call themselves 'Christian' but then don't actually follow Christ's example. Jesus said "People will know you are my followers by how you love one another". Look to them and judge accordingly. May I suggest you start with a book on the lives of the saints, they're definately good examples. God bless you.

I was disappointed with the clear implication in your Meet The Press interview that those of us, in the GOP who defend life, protect traditional marriage and advance religious liberty are intolerant.

It was obvious to anyone who watched the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, that NO! had it. There was no way the convention chairman could have heard a two-thirds vote for the YES! position. Three times the chairman asked them to vote. Three times they denied God. Denied Him Thrice!

What has happened to the Democratic Party that,in the 1960's, provided such leadership for the cause...
