    Found this scripture in the Bible:

    "The heart of the wise man inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." ~ Ecclesiastes 10:2

    So there you have it. God supports Republicans.

    (before you have a heart attack im just messing around)

    Just goes to show how religion can be perverted and subverted to justify political ends.

    Taking the bible literally tends to lead to bad things.

    Wow, never thought anyone could possibly think that interpreting that verse to mean God supports Republicans would be taking the Bible literally. Im sure thats what God meant when He inspired Solomon to write it.

    God might have been a republican in the Old Testament when he loved to reign down fireballls and send archangles down to decimate infidels.

    But in the New Testament things take a turn. Jesus was a hippie.

    A hippy that believed in helping his fellow man through personal responsibilty. Not through government handouts. He believed that individuals should share their wealth with other individuals. He did not beleive in giving money to the state so that they can claim to distribute it "fairly". He also beleived that people need to believe in themselves and not rely on others.

    "Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, he never goes hungry again."
