    Well, I'm far far from home, visiting the folks in Florida, missing my kitties and my hubby!

    Yesterday, the folks drag me to their Church for Sunday service...not really dragged me...;)

    Anyway, the Priest in their parish spoke about political parties that we should NOT belong to....

    1. We should not support a political party that supports abortion being legal.
    2. We should not support a political party that supports the death penalty.
    3. We should not support a political party that supports going to war without Just Cause...(in self defense of an immediate harm to us.)

    QUESTION: Is there ANY political party that we are allowed to support?

    You support the party which does not endorse activities which fly in the face of the bible.

    Thou shalt not murder. That's pretty basic.

    No.

    And maybe that's the point.

    On the death penalty, he said....because we have prisons and a means to lock up those that could harm us, to kill them is not right....

    that killing them....them as in those that have murdered others, if there was no means to keep them locked up to protect us from them would be acceptable...but since there are prisons to keep them locked up and us safe, it is unholy and unjust and not right to kill them.

    Interesting point. I really feel more political parties or the absence of them is needed to allow folks to vote their conscious.

    well, the republican party, in general supports the execution of killers...was my understanding, so I guess we are not suppose to support this political party for this reason???

    If taxation is stealing than supporting any form of taxation (all government) would be wrong as well. No church ever explores this issue.
