A guy stopped by the College Democrats booth at the organization fair today. He just wanted to give us his card so he could get rid of them. He didn't want to sign-up on our list because he was Republican so, Jess asked him his top three reasons for being Republican. He told us they were based on his faith and they were:
The death penalty
Now, from where I see it aren't these a little contradictory? 'I want to save babies, but kill adults and no Democrat would ever hunt - just take my gun away.'
Another of his reasons was because most Republicans are Christian, but HELLO! Any politician has to be Xian to get elected. Haven't you noticed?
As far as I'm concerned (and according to the Society of Biblical Literature) Jesus talked way more about LOVING others and taking care of the "least of these" than he did about abortion, the death penalty and guns (or gays). And Republicans do shitty jobs of taking care of the poor and the sick. Not to mention the environment. I know the Earth is not supposed to be Xian's homes, but they could at least do it for their grandchildren.
(I can proof text it with the best of them)
In particular Matthew 25 says:
'42For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.' 44"They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?'45"He will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.'
He also said: "I don't believe in evolution at all." And you're a college student?
Now my pastor just wrote a letter in the newsletter talking about Evolution being the closest thing to correct and urging the congregation to realize the ORAL tradition that the Bible comes from. These are stories people.
And guess where I'm pretty sure he attends church. That's right Jello Cult Americhristianity.
