Europe has Christian Democrat parties, so what's the big deal? Personally, I see nothing wrong with the GOP being a Christian Party. But what if Romney gets elected, then will it be a Mormon Party? I would prefer that the GOP become the Roman Catholic Party, because my Church is the REAL Christian Church, not one of these pretend ones. And if we change our Constitution to make one religion the official one, I would also prefer to have Roman Catholicism the official religion. To me though, Mormon is like Scientology or Moonie.
So you are trying to say that he was right? Are you really saying I would be unwelcome in the Republican Party?
First, since the US was founded on the principles of liberty, one of those being the liberty to choose one's own religion, I would take SERIOUS issue to a proclamation of an official American religion.
Second, you are free to get a bunch of Catholics and start your own Catholics-only political party. Or, you could join the American Party, the American Heritage Party, or the Constitution Party, all of which already share your views.
Third, are you really saying that the Catholic church is the only church whose members will be in heaven? Do you have any scriptural proof of that?
I think he's from the Pat Buchanan wing of the party, which, thankfully, has been shrinking since 1992.
I wish they would all join the Constitutional Party and let the libertarian-minded run the Party. I could then join the Republican Party and feel good about it.
isn't that the kennedy wing of the democratic party?
Not by this RC member. Personally I am of the opinion that there should be NO appearance of belief establishment. In this case, any religion that wanted to erect some 'symbolic representation' on public grounds would be welcome to, with the costs, upkeep paid by whatever group was there.
Is Dean say there are no white or Christian Democrats? It would be interesting to see a poll on how many in each party consider themselves white and Christian.
I don't see this as a real big deal. I think the GOP has been attracting lots of minorities lately. All they have to do is listen to the democraps...
