    Take this quote from Rick Perry:
    However, if one reads the Bible in the original, one finds out that Jesus never says for himself that he is the Son of God:

    Not quite a big issue, but just more evidence that politicians will say anything to get votes, whether they fact check it or not.

    Jesus never said He was the Son of God? Well, please explain John 10 then:

    Ill sum it up here:

    Christ claimed that He and His Father are one. The Pharisees realized that He claimed that He was God's son and attempted to stone Him for blasphemy.

    Christ defended Himself by pointing out the scripture in Psalms 82 which speaks to the believers and says "ye are gods" and argued that how can you stone me fore saying I am the Son of God if the scriptures say those who believe are gods?

    Not much point to the whole argument if He isn't claiming to be the Son of God now does it?

    Rick Perry, like most political conservatives, use religion as cover and only religious ignoramuses fail to see them for what they truly are: Hypocrites.

    Never mind versions and interpretations of the Bible. I am a conservative Christian and would never encourage and force-immunize unmarried women against venereal diseases that are contracted by engaging in inappropriate sexual activities.
