What ever happened to Christians in the Democratic Party?
Did the Tea Party run off with all the Christians? There are whole parties of Christian Democrats in other countries. Here, you don’t hear a peep. Are Democratic Christians embarrassed by their Republican brethren? I know they watch different news shows, do they go to different churches?
Don’t all Christians curse the un-godly way the Tea Party thinks of 47 percent of us?
Personally, I have friends who are both Christians and Democrats. Some things we don’t discuss, but we share our political thoughts. We agree that wars are bad and expensive, that global warming can destroy the planet, that science is not sinful, that government should help and protect us.
We’re not sure where we should drill for oil and frack for gas, but we’re damn sure we shouldn’t do either in Mission Hills. And, we thank God, so-to-speak, for bio diversity coming to San Diego, even though Obama helped.
We also agree that women should get paid the same for the same job, and have reproductive control over their own bodies. (We do argue some about the reproductive part.)
We pretty much agree that movie stars are not real stars, airlines should be more generous with legroom; and religion is the antithesis of reason. (We head-butt occasionally about what’s reasonable.)
Tea Party Christians never discuss that stuff. They have all the answers and they make up the questions just to prove it. They may talk to non-Christians at Tea Party rallies, but they never invite them home. And God forbid they should ever compromise!
Did you know that Tea is a narcotic?
