Republicans Nullifying Conservatives

I mean this as a serious question: If the party platform of the Oklahoma Republican party states “God is the Author and Creator of life", is there no place in the party for conservative minded atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, Hindus, etc. Perhaps Oklahoma is religiously homogeneous enough that it is not an issue, and clearly the Republican party is dominant in Oklahoma anyway, but I can see a future where that is not necessarily the case.

Perhaps "conservative minded atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, Hindus etc...etc....etc" are astute enough to recognize that life is a continuous process starting at conception and ending with natural death. Perhaps they recognize that if we have a society where the strong can escape the consequences of their choices by killing someone who is smaller and weaker, that we don't have freedom and choice, we have cruelty and anarchy.

But does the proposition that we, imperfect as we are, should assume that we know god's purpose so well that we need not leave judgement to him? Are we really to venture that far into hubris? It's one thing to preach and quite another to ordain, particularly when we use the power of the state to enforce our religious views. Remember, the Christian saviour preached that the state rules the earth while god rules heaven. No where in the Christian bible are we told to enforce god's law. That is the province of Mohammaden Muslims and their quest for a world wide Muslim state and it's thousand years of enforced "peace".

K.22, God has made his will and his mind known in his divine revelations, and murder, including the murder of infants, has been expressly forbidden by him in the written law, the commands, he gave us. Your statement: “The state rules the earth while God rules heaven”, in no way implies that the state should countermand God’s law. Before the current Masonic Republics, the common law for the Christian governments was rooted in, and consistent with, the law of God. And when Jesus Christ returns to rule the Earth as King of kings of the Earth from the throne of David in the city of Jerusalem on Mount Zion in Israel, the law of God will be part of the civil law for the whole world.

After the primary is over and the Republican establishment wins, the usual suspects line up to give the rest of us out here in the grassroots a sanctimonious lesson in party unity.

But after a series of unfortunate events like what took place in Oklahoma this week, with Republicans and not Democrats nullifying conservatives, the whole “rah-rah go team GOP” thing is becoming a tougher pill for some conservatives to swallow.

Oklahoma is among the reddest of red states. Republicans dominate state government there, possessing 31 of the 48 seats in the Oklahoma Senate and 68 of the 99 seats in...
