    Yes because I'm not arrogant enough to tell other people what they are allowed to call themselves or not. If you call yourself a Christian, I'll accept you as a Christian. Especially considering there are 30348373+1 different Christian denominations.

    There are so many variations of Christianity. They can't all be correct.

    do you accept that Jesus died for your sins?

    have you asked him to be your savior?

    have you asked for God's forgiveness and acceptance into His Kingdom to live for enternity after your death?

    if so, you're a Christian, regardless of what demoniation you practice.

    and the answer to the question is yes. I'm a Christian and I already voted for Obama.

    You can be a Christian and vote for Hitler as was proven in the 1930s.

    Hell, shove enough propaganda down our throats and Christians would vote for Lucifer himself.

    Because all human's sin and have faults. Dems might have faults, but being evil is not one of them.

    God may give you a point for being pro life, but he takes points away for being evil greedy war mongers.

    So God might take a point away because I'm pro choice, but at least he isn't taking points from me for being an evil lying hypocrite prick.

    Good points. However, I've had people tell me that if you believe homosexuality is NOT a sin, you're not a Christian. My wife and I used to go to a predominately gay church and they obviously had a problem with that interpretation. I guess that's why there have been so many wars started in the name of Christianity.

    Or a party that says a woman is responsible to bare her rapists child.

    Or a guy who defends not covering a person who has a pre existing healthcare condition.

    Or approve war for oil.

    People sin. Republicans sin more imo.
