It's liberals that fight for Christian freedoms.

Posted by   + Show Post
It's those of us that believe in freedom of choice that are actually holding up religious freedoms. I feel the right wing groups would self implode with out those that believe in their right to be wrong.

 Oh yeah? LOL.I don't know....I thought most people finish high school knowing grammar, usage,spelling. Gosh, my mistake.

Shoot me now. What a terrible person I am. I corrected someone's grammar. Unforgivable. 

Quoting jcribb16:

So you came in to correct someone's grammar?  That's pretty rude. Not everyone thinks, speaks, spells, etc., the same.  You don't know where they have been in their lives school-wise, including the fact that people are not perfect, and have made, do make, and will make mistakes.  EVERYONE!  

Quoting lga1965:

I have no idea. The only reason I commented was to correct her grammar. You didn't notice ?
I said I have no opinion on Liberals or freedom.


Quoting jcribb16:

How are those Liberals fighting for Christian freedoms, especially when a great many hate anything to do with God nor Christianity?

Quoting lga1965:

 I just have to say:


They're Liberals WHO fight for Christian freedoms.


Otherwise, I have no opinions about Christian freedoms.


I prefer to talk about all freedom, civil rights and choice.

Shame on you for using those words "shoot me now."  That could cause a lot of feedback!!  You aren't terrible by any means.  Some people don't finish high school, some may have been weak in grammar, usage, and spelling, and may just get mixed up sometimes.  

You are personally attacking their way of doing something, whether it's wrong or right for them, and that's the only thing I'm trying to share with you - to not try to publicly embarrass someone for either making an honest mistake, or for some, the fact they may not be strong with English rules and spelling.

You are fortunate to be strong with correct usage and spelling.  Like I tell my students, when needed, is that if someone is weak in one area, then that someone will be stronger in a different area, like Math, and others may be weak with the Math, yet strong with the English.

Thanks for responding about this.  :)

I've found when someone gets to the point of correcting someone's grammar, it means that have nothing of any real importance to contribute to the conversation.

Perhaps you are right blondekosmic, that is a trashy term, just like many terms discribing people that do not like others because of race, nationality..., religion, gender, loving someone of the same sex... I just call them all INTOLERENT.   And that IMO, is a sin, according to my beliefs.   And from what I read about Jesus, he would too.  In fact many Christians, (as I stated earlier) have told me if Jesus were alive today he would be a liberal.  He would be infact following OT Laws.   I am not intolerant of your beliefs BK unless you're trying to surpess mine, or take mine away, or perhaps make your religious beliefs into secular law.  This country is not a theocracy.  But I am sure you know that. And, I for one,  would love to keep it that way.

Tweety, I agree with you in part. Thank you for sharing your opinion. Yes, I believe unkind words & labels are sinful & offensive. The Christian faith teaches.. love thy neighbor as thyself. Share compassion with others, be sensitive & respectful. I do not believe Jesus asks us to be a doormat to those who are hateful & condescending. We pray for discernment. We respond accordingly. Do not judge according to race, religion, ethnicity, cultural differences etc. Just because a person voices concern about a particular way of life is not saying you don't like the individual. I'm referring to the homosexual lifestyle since this has been a primary topic of discussion lately. You can love your neighbor, have compassion for others even tho your faith teaches you certain choices are immoral & offensive to God. Love of God is essential to a close walk with our heavenly Father. True tolerance loves the person but may not accept the personal choices rendered by the individual. For ex....a close friend of mine engaged in an adulterous affair. I do not condone her actions but I continue to love her & cherish our friendship. 

I'm a Christian.... therefore the Scriptures are a primary part of my life. The Bible teaches us sin deeply offends God. If I am silent about sinful behavior than I'm a hypocrite to God & to myself. A sign of weakness which awards the devil power over the person. I believe you are Jewish? You may not believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ nor the Holy Trinity but Christians who embrace the Sacred Scriptures do accept this doctrine. I have read & meditated upon the passion & death of Jesus many times esp during Lent. Jesus suffered tremendously for the sins of the flesh, including homosexuality. You may not accept this teaching but billions of Christians thru out the Centuries do. The Apostles warned about these sins. I believe abortion is murder. The Bible reveals God's love for each one of us including the child he forms in a mother's womb. To harm the weak & defenseless separates the person from God. Promotes a culture of death & disrespect for the sanctity of human life.

I disagree, if Jesus walked the earth today, he would not be a liberal. Liberalism supports immorality contrary to God's laws. Gay marriage & the homosexual lifestyle. Jesus will never condone homosexual acts. 2 men engaging in anal sexual relations & oral sex. 2 women having unnatural sexual relations with one another. Jesus was scourged bloody for these sins against the body, a temple of the Holy Spirit. Pornography is tolerated & acceptable for many. Liberalism compromises the Constitution & disrespects the rights of those who wish to practice their religion faithfully. Freedom of religion not freedom from religion as the left promotes. Liberalism supports/promotes the direct killing of the unborn child God creates in a mother's womb. If Jesus was a liberal, he would be a hypocrite to the Commandments & his own biblical teachings. I believe if the Apostles were alive today, they would be praying in front of the abortion clinics. Promoting human life & respect for the least amongst us. Liberalism does not reflect the social justice which Jesus taught in the Scriptures. Social justice today represents dependency upon the gov't, more gov't control, desprives the individual of self-respect & dignity. The 'gimme' generation rather than self-reliance, opportunity & prosperity. God blesses each one of us with specific talents. We suppress these talents & gifts when we rely upon the gov't to take care of us.

You may wish for a secular society. When God is pushed out, don't expect his graces when times are tuff.....

BK,  this country is and was founded as a secular society. We are not and never intended to be a theocracy.  As a diverse society we each in our individual beliefs have G-d in our lives,  we do not need a government religion.   That doesn't mean that we as a nation have "pushed G-d out of anything or anywhere for those that believe in Him.  This what I do not understand about some Christians, why they insist upon forcing others to accept their view of their religion in government.  It simply doesn't work.  It calls for resentments, and eventually revolt.  But if you look at history, if government restricted in anyway Christian's rights to fair housing, or college (or attempt to shut down Christian colleges), or social clubs etc. the liberals would be the first to fight these attempts, because they are discriminatory.

As for same sex marriage, it does not threaten my marriage (40 years strong this Sept.) nor do I believe it threatens many heterosexual marriages.  I does however break civil law as it is discriminatory..and I am surprised that same sex couples haven't filed discrimination suits against states that refused to marry these couples.  Nobody said clergy must marry this couples.  There are many judges and justices of the peace that will marry said couples.
