You may be reporting facts, but your crude tone negates anything you have to say. It’s sad you feel you have to degenerate debate or comments so.

During and after WW2 in the US, the Japanese US citizens were hated, rounded up and put into interment camps. Many lost everything. Once freed, they suffered harsh discrimination and many of the affects of racism. Rather than fighting back, the Japanese American ethnic group as a whole sought to make a better life for their children. To do so, that generation, as a whole, decided to keep their nose and eyes down, without crying out and playing the victim card, denied themselves the life they had before the war and labored hard to have their children excel in their scholastics to become well educated, valuable and respected members of society as skilled doctors, business men and women, lawyers, etc. This group of people, through one generation, looked past the racism and worked hard to where they are no longer one of most hated minorities. During that time, you almost couldn’t find a gardener that wasn’t Japanese. Many of that generation, both mothers and fathers, worked double jobs just so they could secure a better life for their children. it was hard and a great sacrifice, but it only took one generation to pull themselves out of their predicament. .Two factors to see in this success story. One, it took the determination of the ethnic group as a whole to make this work. They fought back through hard work, not by seeking just retribution or retaliation. A hard dose of swallowed pride. Two, it also took a whole family… a mother and father, a team effort, to set the example and standard their children were to follow. .The ABC can also make this work but to do so, they will have to come together as a whole ethnic group. They can’t rely on the government to do it for them. It is through whole families. They have to work hard and set the example for the children to follow. They have to stop playing the race card (and listening to those who indulge themselves in the career of racism by pandering to their sufferings). They have to stop looking for handouts, swallow any hateful pride, forgive others, and rid oneself of any conduct that includes racism, prejudice, or discrimination, and resolve to do the right thing, even if it comes with a cost. .No one can say it would be easy, but we have a proven example of it being done. It won’t totally blot out racism, as with the Japanese Americans, but it would reduce it significantly both within and towards the ABC. .It would be absolutely amazing for the ABC as a WHOLE to be revered and respected as a invaluable part of our society.

So… if everyone on earth were a Democrat, the world would be perfect? Heaven on earth? I don’t think so.

Not sure what your mother believed of scripture, but even if having the all 66 books of the Bible memorized means nothing if not applied to serving the Jesus as Lord and master.-The point is, being able to wax eloquent or even to be able to quote the scriptures accurately doesn’t imply true belief or faith leading to salvation. That would be a works salvation. As with politics, building one’s beliefs on what other people say or do is not a good practice. It would be like deciding on who to vote for in the next presidential election by only reading these political comics. Rather, go to the source yourself… the Bible. Seek Him, not for your own pride of knowledge, but to glorify Him in obedience, in truth and faith. -Get the real facts. But it won’t be achieved through casual reading. Many seek Him, but few find Him. Pray that He grants you the faith only He can give you to believe. -Within those who claim Christianity, as in all sinful humanity, you will find those that are true, those that are false, those who are loving believers, as well as deceptive hypocrites. If you come to God wanting to know Him in the truth of scripture, you can find Him. If you come to know about Christianity seeking to find hypocrites, you will find them. -Ultimately, it doesn’t matter… what matters is what YOU do with what you have been given. Not everyone who wears a cross around their neck are Christians. I dare say, in that the road to destruction is broad, and the way to God is narrow, the vast majority of them are not. But don’t use how wrong you believe all of them are, in how they twist scripture and wrongly use it to their own ends, to keep you from coming to the God of the Bible… which seems to be the case. I hope not.
Hearsay? How do you come to believe any of the Bible with that view? Either it was written by men alone (and thus untrustworthy), or by men under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and thus fully trustworthy. You can’t stand in judgement as to which part is true and which part is not. The book of John says Jesus is the Word of God. 2 Tim 3:16 says “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;”. Who has the authority to take scissors to the Word of God and make up the claim that some of it is hearsay? That’s blasphemy.
Why bring the Bible into your rants, unless your ultimate aim is to attack Christ and His people? Or, are you one that holds to the view that there is no such thing as a conservative/Republican Christian?-I know people who read the Bible for the sole purpose of disproving it and arguing with those that believe in God. There are number of posters who do this, and constantly take the Bible out of context. Reading the Bible with proper exegesis is rarely done, let alone reading it to love and obey God more. You seemingly rejoice in finding someone who claims Christianity and has faulty view of scripture. - Here’s a verse for you that is hard to take out of context… Read 1 Cor. 10:31? "Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” What glory are you bringing to God in all your posts? How are your posts going to measure up for you on the day of judgement. No rhetoric of yours will stand, nor will you be able to blame anyone but yourself… that is, unless Christ takes the blame for you.

If there are those that are leaving the church because they don’t like the truth, then the church is teaching the right message. That is, the Gospel. Jesus never tickled the ears of those that wished to follow Him. He drew a hard line in the sand saying repent of your sins and obey me as Lord. Everyone wants a Savior, but few what a LORD. The reason they are leaving is because they don’t want to obey. It’s not about the Gospel being loving. To die for someone so as to save him is the epitome of love. Your view that the church is hateful is twisted and you are surpassing the truth in unrighteousness. But, God can forgive you if you are willing… just submit yourself wholly to Him. If you are not willing to do so, then you are one of the ones being driven from the church… only, it’s not the church’s fault. It’s yours.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness…Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie…For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error…And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper…and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.
