Yea, not entirely sure what the cartoonist is smokin’ here. As much as I’d love for the race to be an open-and-shut Republican win, that’s just NOT the case this time around.
Not that either party has a fantastic candidate. Nobody has a solid, feasible plan for anything (except their campaign).
Um, I would just like to note here, that I am a republican and I do not condone Cain’s actions in any way whatsoever.
As usual, the crazy (insert “left” OR “right” here)-wingers are getting the attention because they’re loudest. It’s quite embarrassing for the majority of repubs who are, in fact, informed, and who are not controlled nearly as much by our anger.
Dang true, Snoopy!
lol. Linus is so pitifully cute. Watched this movie last night; the classic never really get old!
Way gross, lol.
As a “right-winger”, I’m a little embarrassed of my crazy counterparts that can never compromise. If you ask me, the right currently feels like this: A family goes out to eat and each person has a drink just to toast the evening. Crazy Uncle T, however, in his desire to show his utmost love and support for the family, guzzles a bottle of Jack and dances on the table. The family is never allowed at the restaurant again.
While I can agree with several of the TEA party and the OWS’ers ideals, I can’t mesh with their unwillingness to compromise or attack the real culprits of our problems. Both parties (D and R) play the blame game way too much, just like any of us humans do on a daily basis.
lol Hobbes is so cute, though!
You’re right; technically, a president cannot use their religious affiliation directly to affect legislation.
However, religion is supposed to be a part of who you are as an individual, Just as gender, career, upbringing, education, and many other (undisputed) factors are said to partly define a person, with most religions, one’s faith is supposed to influence your decisions and, therefore, your actions.
The issue is that religion has just become a demographic and not a way of life (except for extremists who distort their religion furiously).
In addition, you are right. God does not “require” worship. He doesn’t “need” you to do anything. The beauty of Christianity is that all you are asked to do is believe, and the rest (worship, evangelism, good works, etc.) are on you. Those are things you ought to want to do as a true Christian (which, by the way, pretty much lines up with the definition of a “good person” as far as good works go), but whether you do them or not is your deal. That’s free will. Religion should change your life in such a way that you want to be that kind of person, not so you can abuse others, as so many have done in the past.
Climbing down off my soapbox now lol. :)
I believe the same, and I am also a “Bible-thumping baptist”.
Do correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe the definition of a cult as it relates to religions is either a group that requires total commitment to its single leader (or a group of leaders) bordering on manipulation of those beneath (not the issue under fire here), or a group that distorts the basic, orthodox doctrines of the faith. Don’t mormons believe that God wasn’t always “supreme” and “holy”? Seems my mormon friend from childhood also said they don’t believe in Jesus as the Son of God, but that He was just a good prophet. I might be incorrect in that.
Regardless, if that is what they believe, that does border on cult-ish, if you ask me, because these are obvious truths that the Bible lays out clearly that LDSs disagree with.
Maybe comics.com isn’t the best place to have this discussion… :P but seriously, I would love to learn more about them if someone does have the information.
Thank you. Let’s not forget about two things:
1. People who are religious are gasp human, and therefore make mistakes. 2. People who aren’t religious are gasp human, and therefore make mistakes.
The only difference between those two groups is whom (or what) they defer to in life.
While Mormons believe some CRAZY things, I don’t know if I’d call them a cult. At the very least, mormons are typically so giving, loving, and peaceful that I’d take them over a religion-less president everyday (note: saying you’re a Christian/Buddhist/Satanist/etc. doesn’t mean you are one).
LOL! That’s hilarious.
Speaking from the right side, I can appreciate Michelle’s efforts to get kids back on the healthy eating track. We all need to eat better and, while I don’t agree with everything she stands for, I’m glad she’s using her position for this purpose.
