What are the odds that abortion and gay marriage will come up as topics?

Aw, I can't resist:
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Lesson Three: Yes, I know the exclamation "Sweet Zombie Jesus!" is funny, but Christians don't like it. They can be so touchy!

Anyway, my pastor had an interesting take on religion in politics during a sermon. He said based on generalizations commonly held the Democrats do a great job on issues of social and racial justice but come up way short on major morality issues such as homosexuality, abortion, etc. The commonly held view is that Republicans do great on the moral issues but come up short on social justice. He basically said both parties fail to grasp the entirety of Christ's message prefer to latch on to one part of it.
He said that is why he is an Independent.

That explains why they want to perpetuate race-based preferences, eh?

As a resident of Eugene, I can tell you there's some truth in this...

Yeah, a half-day should cover it.

As a resident of Eugene, I can say there's definitely some truth to this...

I'd be happier if I knew this wasn't a half-assed attempt at "understanding" Christianity so they can shill to all us Bible-thumpin' redneck fundamentalist types. Yeah, we'll accept the Democrat platform if it's given to us dolled up with Bible quotes and "WWJD" type of slogans.
I'm a Christian, I'm not a Democrat, and I'm not impressed with folks who sit around and think of ways to con me into getting their vote with religion. If they truly had religion to begin with here, this whole news story would never ha ve had to be written.
Hey Democrats, "Jesus saves", not "big government saves, except against heathen terrorists angry because it's our fault".
