    I hope that fellow Christians will begin to concern themselves more with the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ rather than the teachings of men, Minor Prophets, and modern day Pharisees. I for one, am much more concerned with THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT than the sermon from Thomas Road Baptist church. In this instance – if we must bring politics into the church – one should compare the policies of each political party in relation to Christ’s Sermon on the Mount.

    Republican Party: Lies – Empowering the rich while taking advantage of and ignoring the poor – War without cause- Torture- Alliances with Evangelical leaders in order to obtain votes in exchange for power (we still have Abortion and Gay People after 8 years of Republican rule) – Intolerance. Doesn’t sound “Christ-like” to me!

    These days, the Democratic Party seems to be more in line with the teachings of Jesus Christ, especially with regard to President Obama’s most recent speech on Abortion:
    “let’s work together to reduce the number of women seeking abortions by reducing unintended pregnancies, and making adoption more available, and providing care and support for women who do carry their child to term. Let’s honor the conscience of those who disagree with abortion, and draft a sensible conscience clause, and make sure that all of our health care policies are grounded in clear ethics and sound science, as well as respect for the equality of women.” Contraception? Care and Support for the least of us? Ethics? Obviously, Obama must be the “anti-christ”!

    According to the “Church and University of Falwell”, we should simply condemn women who find themselves in such a predicament… Problem Solved! Praise God!

    Regarding the other issue that seems to monopolize a great deal of time, energy, and thought in the spiritual capitol of the USA…Lynchburg (VA). Although it is not really discussed by Christ, the closest reference to the existence of Gay People is part of verse in the book of Mathew (a primary source mind you) regarding divorce: (Mathew 19:12) “For some are eunuchs because they were born that way; others were made that way by men; and others have renounced marriagec because of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.” A translation and cultural study of “eunuchs” as a category reveals startling truths, inferring that Christ was speaking of the very gay people so many religious leaders continue to condemn. Through elaboration and embellishment rooted in the writings of men and Minor Prophets commenting on social-cultural traditions and church doctrine, the “Church and University of Falwell” has maligned and condemned millions of human beings (gay people) as “sinners in the first degree”. There have always been gay people and there will always be gay people in every society (just as in the day of Jesus Christ and before). How we as Christians treat gay people is the test – another failure of “Falwellism.”

    As Christians, we are commanded to show Love and Compassion!

    Again, the words of our Lord Jesus Christ: (Mathew 7:1) “Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. 3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

    Today, the “Church and University of Falwell” has created a whole new class of “sinner” they call Democrats. The very same family that has used the Christian Faith to amass power and millions through the creation of a family business –aka Thomas Road Baptist Church, bilked unwitting college students out of millions under the guise of a “4th tier” education – aka Liberty University, isolated out of context biblical passages in an effort to create their own “truth,” solidly aligned themselves with a political party for personal financial and political gain, has now – once again – narrowed their list of who is worthy and who is not.

    Lest we forget – the actual words of our Lord Jesus Christ: (Mathew 7:15) “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will recognize them by their fruits.”

    Let’s make a list of fruit: Manipulation – Quest for Personal Power and Money – Intolerance – Condemnation – Self Righteousness…
    Sounds like a group of another group of Religious Leaders Christ himself famously chastised – PHARASEES!

    Jerry Falwell is Not Christian in any sense. His principles, his philosophies are profoundly anti-Christ.

    Well said, RWGG. Jerry Falwell’s personal preaching and his university are focused, centered on the profoundly Anti-Christ message of Enrich the Richest: Big Money is their false god.

    Search………………STARVE THE BEAST……………………………………………

    The Democratic Party is the only Big Political Party in the USA to focus on the poor, the unprivileged, promoting Basic Human Rights, like Voting, Healthcare, the same foci as Christ.

    Not many know the Principal Philosophy of the GOP, Right: The Bankruptcy of the United States of America to slash misnomerded by them ‘social’ programs like the outstanding SSA, which is not a Retirement System. SSA is Disability, Survivors, And Retirement Family Insurance system, non-profit with tiny 1% total overhead, vs 7% for provate Insurance systems. SSA would be bankrupt Now if it had been ‘privatized’ to Wall Street as Republicans have been trying. Reagan and Bush have used FICA Insurance assessments for Regular Government Current spending, to speed the demise of SSA.

    The Now Listed widelly Republican Bankrupt the USA out of “social programs’ like VA, SSA, Medicare, Medicaid, Education ……………………..Has been Accomplished!

    The GAO May 2008 Financial Statement on the USA Documented that the USA was Bankrupt: The Financial Obligations, Debts of the USA now exceed All Assets, including the Capitol, National Parks, Your Home and Car.

    The May 2009 Financial Status of the USA Must indicate vastly more Financial Debt of the USA, with over $2 Trillion New Obligations now needed to try to recover from the Deregulation, “free market” Total Financial Implosion of the USA, then the world.

    All this resulted from the Republican, Falwell, Big Money, Anti-Christian Slash Taxes on the Richest, begun by Reagan, Completed by George W.

    The Operative Republican, Mega-Rich Fiscal Policy Is now Listed as………….

    ………. STARVE THE BEAST……………………………………………….

    It Has bankrupted the United States of America. Remember Clinton had Record Federal, Business, Full Employment Surpluses, and $28 Billion FY 2001 Surplus when Unelected (3 counties in Florida) George W/Chaney non-Veterans insane administration.
