57% Of Republicans Say Dismantle Constitution And Make Christianity National Religion

flag and bible

A Public Policy Polling (PPP) national survey conducted between February 20th and February 22nd of Republican voters, found that an astonishing 57 percent of Republicans want to dismantle the Constitution, and establish Christianity as the official national religion. Only 30 percent oppose making Christianity the national religion.

Although the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment clearly states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,” GOP voters want to cast aside that provision and impose Christianity as the official American religion.

While a number of red states have passed statutes forbidding the implementation of Islam-based sharia law in their states, Republicans apparently have no misgivings about turning the United States into a Christian theocracy. The poll’s crosstabs reveal that support for making Christianity the official religion is strongest among Mike Huckabee (94 percent), Rick Perry (83 percent), and Ben Carson (78 percent) supporters.

Ben Carson is the preferred presidential candidate of those who want to impose Christianity on the nation with 24 percent support. Mike Huckabee and Scott Walker are tied for 2nd place at 16 percent. Scott Walker (35 percent) and Jeb Bush (22 percent) are the leading candidates among GOP voters who do not want to establish a national religion.

The PPP survey also found that 2/3rds of Republican voters do not believe in global warming, and 49 percent do not believe in the theory of evolution. Not only do they wish to establish a national religion, but it appears that their version of Christianity is one that is at odds with the scientific consensus in climatology and biology.

While a clear majority of Americans self-identify as Christians, most Americans outside the GOP, would be uncomfortable with conservative Dominionist theology. Dominionism calls for imposing a theocracy in America where Christianity is declared the official religion, and the nation is governed by “Biblical law”.

Republican voters seem all too eager to embrace Dominionist theology, even though doing so would violate the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Freedom of Religion is one of the bedrock principles established in our founding documents. Republican voters are gearing up to elect candidates who will undermine the First Amendment and take away our Freedom of Religion. Independents and Democrats must be prepared to stop any candidate who would dismantle the Establishment Clause, whether it be Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson or one of the other GOP presidential candidates.

  1. If this country ever decides to ditch the Constitution and embrace theocracy, I’d better either be dead or somewhere’s else…like in a galaxy, far, far, away from this one.

  2. I suspect that not many people, especially young people, are bothering to read history books anymore. Our founding fathers were not as knowledgeable about the world as we are(should be) today, but they did see that religious rule defeated any hope for individuality and any individual rights. Religious rulers wanted and strived for a system of kings, queens and serfs (or Popes, Bishops and drones) and that seems to be their desire today. Don’t let this happen to us in this day and age. Think people, THINK!

  3. As my friend Kerry Fox of Kerry Fox Live correctly pointed out:

    “The fast lane to fascism”

    Defining characteristic of Fascism: religion and government intertwined. The First Amendment of the Constitution bars a theocracy from being established, which is why the Constitution would have to be changed before this could legally happen.

  4. Hey all of you TP/GOP members America Love it or leave it!We the People are protected by the Constitution and your talk is an act of TREASON.

  5. The white republicans call themselves Christians? I say BULLSHIT

    Republicans take next hostage: Children’s health
    The Children’s Health Insurance Program is threatened by a funding glitch created by a poorly written provision of Obamacare. But more so, it’s threatened by Republicans who see in this funding glitch another hostage-taking opportunity, and intend to exploit it.

    Congressional Republicans released a draft bill Tuesday that would avert a funding cutoff for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and the loss of coverage for some two million children.

    Boy I bet the white baby jebus is just jacking off in what they are doing in his name

  6. These Republicans are against their being Sharia Law in America, but they have no problem with making America a Christian nation and its laws based on the Bible. The hypocrisy is unbelievable.

  7. They are paranoid whack jobs that are too stupid to see they’re being played by the “buy our gold/silver, guns/ammo, bugout bags” for the chaos that will ensue. They just dont tell them that the money they spent on end times crap was spent on bringing on chaos themselves by attempting their own gov’t coup by the billionaires club.

  8. “Support establishing Christianity as the national religion” – that sounds like the United Kingdom. Scary stuff.

  9. Well, this means that 57% of this nation hates America plain and simple.

    They want to turn our great nation into something you’d find during the Dark Ages, which isn’t pretty. I think that we, as human beings, are beyond that kind of thinking. We should be beyond the idea of church and state being on the same page.

  10. It would be interesting to see what shape they view a Biblical political system to look like; democracy would be abolished, and effectively a form of socialism would be implemented, a la the 12 Apostles: “They made it their practice to sell their possessions and goods and to distribute the proceeds to anyone who was in need.” ACTS 2.5

    Imagine the reaction the 1% would have if they were legally obliged to sell their goods so as to support the poor…

  11. First off, the notion that this would ever happen is simply ridiculous hyperbole. Secondly there are thousands of American citizens, armed citizens, who would resist any attempt to extra-constitutionally, alter the Constitution.

    Another reason to support the right to bear arms..

  12. Only if the official version of Christianity can be the United Church of Christ:) If being a Christian nation meant that we fed the hungry, clothed the naked, sheltered the homeless, established universal health care, minimized incarceration and the like, you know, actually follow Christ’s teaching and example I could get on board!

  13. Since there is no such thing as Christianity and merely thousands of mutually hostile sects, the question that needs to asked is: what Christian denomination should become the official church of the nation?

    Catholics and protestants don’t share a common bible, Lord’s Prayer, ten commandments, or path to salvation. Christianity is a meaningless abstraction, get into specifics and it is exposed as a divided house of cards.

  14. My fear would be that the Theocrats would be the ones taking up arms thinking they were defending the Constitution while they were actually destroying it. But yeah, its probably not going to happen, because as clueless as the American electorate can be at times, they would hopefully stand up against full blown Dominionism, at least.

  15. Reason 666 why republicans are idiots

    49 percent of Republicans do not believe in evolution
    There’s a new Public Policy Polling poll out identifying Scott Walker as the top Republican pick among their presidential maybe-candidates. But some of the other poll results among self-identified Republicans are doozies. For example:
    • 49 percent of Republicans say they do not believe in evolution. Only 37 percent say they do.

    • 66 percent of Republicans say they do not believe in global warming. Mind you, even the most science-denying Republicans in Congress have said they “believe” in global warming, they just don’t think we should do anything about it. Their base has not yet reached this enlightened state.

  16. And these are the people waving American flags and calling themselves true patriots.

    Forgive them Father for they have no earthly idea of the very real dangers of their want.

  17. Here’s a better idea-secede the parts of each state which are the “red-est”, and collectively call it “Dummamerikka”.

  18. Wow Rooster!
    “Whatever you have done for the least among you…you have done it for me”

    Why have Conservatives all forgotten?

  19. Isn’t this what the middle east countries have a national “religion”?

    Religion and Government are Intertwined

    Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government’s policies or actions.

  21. Henry VIII established the church of England (episcopal church) just so he could get a divorce and then marry Ann Bolin.
    The pilgrims fled England because of the church of England.

  22. Yeah, sorry Mike, but none of those countries have a state religion; the Church of England is traditionally the Church of the Monarchy, but the country itself has no state religion; as for the other nations you mentioned, none of them actually have State religions.

  23. Ok which chrisianity?

    Catholic, Baptist, Methodist / Wesleyan, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Protestant, Pentecostal/Charismatic, Episcopalian/Anglican, Mormon / Latter-Day Saints, Churches of Christ, Congregational/United Church of Christ, Jehovah’s Witness, Assemblies of God, Evangelical, Church of God, Seventh-Day Adventist, Holiness/Holy, Church of the Nazarene, Disciples of Christ, Church of the Brethren, Mennonite, Reformed/Dutch Reform, Apostolic/New Apostolic, Quaker, Christian Science, Full Gospel, Christian Reform, Independent Christian Church, Foursquare Gospel, Fundamentalist, Born Again, Salvation Army

  24. Ah, you used wikipedia and you didn’t read it but it’s a purdy pic.
    The RWNJ wants a theocracy, not the same thing.

    A state religion (also called an established religion, state church, established church, or official religion) is a religious body or creed officially endorsed by the state. A state with an official religion, while not secular, is not necessarily a theocracy.
    The term state church is associated with Christianity[citation needed], historically the state church of the Roman Empire, and is sometimes used to denote a specific modern national branch of Christianity. Closely related to state churches are what sociologists call ecclesiae, though the two are slightly different.

    State religions are official or government-sanctioned establishments of a religion, but neither does the state need be under the control of the church (as in a theocracy), nor is the state-sanctioned church necessarily under the control of the state.

  25. when fascism comes to america, it will be wrapped in a flag, carrying a cross, by the kochs.tp.gop.fox.et.al….

    someday there will be reconing and there if its not too late, a division in this country of north and south. unless texas turns blue with the large hispanic demo, we are going to see some dark times…

  26. Republicans are proving over and over that they are nothing but fascist, anti-American TRAITORS and it is time they were treated as such.

  27. Ah … but *whose* Christianity? One that prohibits abortion and contraception, or one that allows them? One that performs same-sex unions or one that condemns them? One that practices Jesus-mandated socialism or one that does not? Whichever variety became the official state religion would then be able to impose its doctrine on *all* Christians, and I bet most of them would be unhappy about that. Remember: the wall of separation is as much to protect the church from the state as the other way around.

  28. Ben Carson Goes Down on Phyllis Schlafly In a clusterfuck of stupid and deranged, Ben Carson, that black guy conservatives like, has written a bewilderingly naive piece praising anti-women’s rights activist Phyllis Schlafly, who, yes, is still alive after 90 years of polluting the earth, demonstrating quite clearly that there is no God. The occasion is that Schlafly will be given some goddamned award at the Conservative Political Action Conference, an orgy of lunatic right-wing activists finger fucking each other, submissive politicians begging for a spanking, and slavering hordes of onlookers hoping to take a selfie masturbating near their nutzoid kings and queens. – See more at: http://rudepundit.blogspot.com/?tw_p=twt#sthash.AABwahSn.dpuf

  29. No worries, Aussie Jimmy. They worship Republican Jesus™, who bears absolutely no resemblance to that guy in the wholly babble.

  30. The Founding Fathers lived at the end of a 300 year period where Europe was racked by wars of religion, fought between adherents of various “Christian” sects, and little over a hundred years from the English civil wars of the mid-1600’s which were strongly influenced by religion. The colonies themselves mirrored Europe’s religious division, Anglicans in Virginia, Puritans in New England, Quakers in Pennsylvania, Catholics in Maryland, and many German religious refugees in New York and Pennsylvania. They ad darned good reasons to not want any religion given preeminence.

  31. no one should be surprised at the DHS homeland security report which listed rightwing extremists and rightwing extremism as the number one threat facing our nation at home today. law enforcement from all levels agree 100% with the security report and its findings. we have got to stand up to these rightwing whacko birds before it becomes to late and they finally succeed in their obsession with hating, sabotaging and destroying America.

  32. Don’t worry – the republicans with brains revere the constitution and are the only ones protecting it. Dems want to broaden the interpretation of the document to the point where the original intent is reversed. Case in point, making freedom of religion into freedom FROM religion. Some less educated republicans would want to declare Christianity the “official” religion because they have seen the Left attempt to turn a good Christian nation with freedom of religion into a cesspool of pornography, sexual deviancy, relativism. When the Constitution falls, it will because of smart liberal lawyers rather than Walmart republicans.

  33. ” the republicans with brains revere the constitution and are the only ones protecting it”.

    In other words, NO republicans revere the Constitution and are protecting it.

    Did you ever notice, by the way, that the VAST majority of politicians getting caught in extramarital affairs or being outed as sexual perverts are Republicans???

  34. “Constitution” is a word conservatives love to throw around without having a real clue about what’s actually in the Constitution.

  35. That is Republicans only Dustin, not 57% of the Nation. If 57% of the Nation were all GOP, we would be forever screwed.

  36. You are familiar with something called the Patriot Act, aren’t you? See how many constitutional protections it nullified with the wholehearted support of the American people.

    So much for all those guns.

  37. Treason, as defined by the Constitution, consists of waging war against the United States. Seditious talk is permitted by the First Amendment.

  38. Er… you’ve noticed, maybe, that’s not what they have in mind:)

    Including the emo-left’s one-time hero: http://www.talk2action.org/story/2013/4/9/124434/9216

    According to the religious right, everything from taxes to the minmum wage and net neutrality are opposed by “Jesus.”

  39. Name one Republican politician/elected oficial who you believe is “defending” the Constitution and I’ll show you how clueless you are. Name one.

  40. Just so we are all tracking reality, a poll sample of 316 people is 7-10 times less than would be needed to create qualitative data with a +/- 5%. What this means is that the poll was poorly constructed and cannot in any way be taken seriously by any reasoning adult.

  41. You think those official DHS Reports on Right-Wing Domestic Terrorism have something to do with Republicans’ sudden aversion to the Dept. of Homeland Security (a government agency THEY created)?

    I’d be willing to place bets on it.

  42. Every. single. Tea Party. Lawmaker. Elected. affirms “disbelief” in the consitutional principle of church/state separation. AND they consistently get elected and re-elected (what do you think those ‘religious freedom’ to discriminate bills working their way through tea party controlled state legislatures are all about)?

  43. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”

    “…no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”

    There is not one aspect of the Constitution that has any indication that the U.S. is a Christian, pagan, atheist or religious nation in any capacity. The Constitution is a legal, not a spiritual or ethical document. Its’ intent is not to teach people how to live, but to set legal guidelines as to how society is to relate to the government and vice versa. Many conservatives seem to think it is a holy writ bespoken by God Him, sent fron On High to save the masses. It aint. It’s law, but the law of the land, not of the Heavens…

  44. Yes, I can just imagine that–a complete circus. In very short order these far right christians would all be fighting against each other as to whose particular flavor of theocracy would rule the day.

  45. If you check the bottom of the survey, it says this:

    ‘February 20-22, 2015
    survey of 316 Republican primary voters”

    That’s hardly a representative sample.

  46. The bottom of the poll says this:

    “February 20-22, 2015
    survey of 316 Republican primary voters”

    316 people is hardly a representative sample.

    Would I be surprised if a larger survey returned similar results? No. However, we don’t *know* that it would, or would not, and it’s not good to try to determine *national* opinions from such a small sample.

  47. is it any wonder DHS, the sam dept the GOP wanted to defund, released a homeland security report calling rightwing extremism and rightwing extremists America’s new number one threat domestically. law enforcement on local, state, and fed levels all agree with this report. the GOP is desperately trying to distract americans from the report’s findings. if we do not come together and stand up to these rightwing anarchists now, they will succeed because they are motivated by extreme and senseless hate and will never stop unless we stop them. it starts in 2016.

  48. the only thing righties know about the constitution is the 2nd amendment- and they even get that wrong too. it would be funny if it wasn’t so damn sad and tragic. if they actually bothered to read the whole thing, they would realize how wrong they are about Obama and his executive powers.

  49. i am a catholic. but it just blows my mind how obsessed the religious right is with bringing religion into everything and truly shoving down people’s throats whether they want it or not… it is wrong and it is clearly unconstitutional. rightwing extremism- Americas new top threat!!!

  50. most convicted politicians are indeed republicans. in just the last two years, atleast a dozen high profile republicans and tea party buffoons charged with and convicted of major crimes. look it up. it is pathetic.

  51. Thanks for calling out Schlafly, who destroyed the ERA movement, owns the Supreme Court and rules Congress through the treasonous Norquist pledge (the only oath upheld by GOP).
    Baptist founder Roger Williams first called for: A “hedge or wall of separation between the garden of the church and the wilderness of the world.”
    Good work, djchefron.

  52. Perfectly possible to do all those good things without having to be a Christian at all. Atheists do charitable works, are nice to each other and have an altruistic outlook, not to mention a healthy moral code and as a plus don’t go around having wars based on any religious ideology :)

  53. You are correct. When it was being debated, many brought up Franklin’s quote (and I’m not necessarily accurate, but still make the point), ” Those who would give up freedom for security, deserve neither freedom nor security”. Unfortunately most didn’t listen.

  54. Mixing religion and government has never worked out, ever. If tonight, every person in the United States declared themselves a Christian, the headlines in tomorrow’s papers wouldn’t be that any of the nation’s problems were solved. Poverty wouldn’t disappear, the Democrats and the Republicans would still be fighting, the debt would still be growing.

    What the headlines would read, however, was that the Baptists were attacking the Catholics for gambling and drinking, the Catholics would be attacking the Protestants for being too easy on the gays, and they would all be attacking the Muslims as a cult. The constant game among religious factions of “who would Jesus hate” would continue unabated. You want proof? Look at the people who say that Rev. Wright isn’t a true Christian, though he led the largest Church of Christ congregation in the nation. Or look at those that claim that Obama isn’t a Christian, even though he was a member of that congregation for 20 years.

  55. Say “Hello!” to all your fellow Repubicans you’ll find in that “cesspool of sexual deviancy”, like …

    Mark “I-Got-My-Favorite-Young-Stud” Foley

    ETC, ETC, ETC

  56. They are like the Nazi party in the early years and look what happened after that.

    This is what happens when the old dixiecrats invade political parties. It took almost 100 years for the Democrats to get rid of them.

    We’ve got to bring this out more and more to the American people or we will lose sight of why we became a nation.

    I hate to use fear mongering, but I am concerned about what the righties are doing to us.

  57. The Patriot Act did NOT have the “wholehearted” support of the American people. Not hardly! Besides. it was supposed to be temporary – ha, ha.

  58. The U.S. was NEVER a Christian country, nor did the Founders intend it to be. The 1st Amendment IS a protection FROM religion. That’s the purpose of the anti-establishment clause and the strict separation of church and state. The Founders were not Christians.

  59. Dumbass I was saying eradicate their ideas which is un American. Now if you want to live in a theocracy move your un American ass to Saudi Arabia

  60. I am virtually certain that the very vast preponderance of the public opinion polls we see in the news work from sample sizes in this range. They are considered statistically valid because they are of such a mass that polling more people would be likely only to confirm the analysis resulting from the first few hundred inquiries.

  61. I have a better idea, dismantle christianity.

    Long ago we eliminated the blacks only bathrooms and the blacks only entrances, long ago we eliminated the “you can’t refuse service to people simply because they are black”, long ago we eliminated the you have to sit at the back of the bus because you are black, long ago people stopped setting crosses on fires in black peoples yards (I’m not so sure about alabama or a couple of other states I could name, but anyway). .
    People need to quit making excuses for hate filled “so-called christian” bigots who claim to be “exercising their rights” to deny service to glbt people.

  62. Violence will never solve anything. You could never ‘eradicate’ enough of ‘them’ to do more than make them martyrs and leave the rest more entrenched in their ignorance.

    We need to figure out what they are afraid of and help them overcome it. They see us as the enemy and that’s a big part of the problem. They’re afraid, they have an enemy to hate. From there, it’s easy for people with a thirst for power to prey on them.

  63. Sample sizes of 300-600 are the norm for national pollsters. While 316 is on the low end of that, a poll conducted from a representative sample of 300 respondents typically has a 95 percent confidence level of plus or minus 3 percentage points. What this means is, assuming there are no other methodological errors, it means there is a 95 percent chance that the real percentage is between 54 and 60.

    Now, where the numbers could be further off, are with smaller sub-samples (for example the subset of Carson voters, might number just 50 people instead of 316, so the numbers have a greater margin in error in that smaller sub-sample).

  64. Polls of 2000-3000 respondents are virtually unheard of. Sample sizes of 300-600 are the norm for national pollsters. While 316 is on the low end of that, a poll conducted from a representative sample of 300 respondents typically has a 95 percent confidence level of plus or minus 3 percentage points. What this means is, assuming there are no other methodological errors, it means there is a 95 percent chance that the real percentage is between 54 and 60.

    Now, where the numbers could be further off, are with smaller sub-samples (for example the subset of Carson voters, might number just 50 people instead of 316, so the numbers have a greater margin in error in that smaller sub-sample).

  65. The “representativeness” of a sample is more a product of the quality of sampling methodology rather than sample size, although sample sizes of under 300 are generally not considered acceptable.

    Sample sizes of 300-600 are the norm for national pollsters.

  66. well, since the USA was never established as a Democracy (at least the Founding Fathers were wise enough not to do that) abolishing Democracy would not have any effect on us.

  67. So if we are to believe you do you think like the so called founders thought only white male land owners have a say in governance? I doubt you will answer because people like you hide behind your bigotry

  68. There is no separation of church and state in the Constitution. The purpose of the second amendment was to prevent a church of England from occurring here. Really all you have to do is actually read your history.

  69. There is a problem. In the following paragraph:
    “Ben Carson is the preferred presidential candidate of those who want to impose Christianity on the nation with 24 percent support. Mike Huckabee and Scott Walker are tied for 2nd place at 16 percent. Scott Walker (35 percent) and Jeb Bush (22 percent) are the leading candidates among GOP voters who do not want to establish a national religion.”
    Scott Walker’s name is used twice in contradictory results. I think they meant to write Rick Perry for the first one.

  70. didn’t take long for a RWNJ parrot to pull out the Fox News approved ‘liberals are the true bigots’ card here.

    once again, your mind-bending hypocrisy and contradictory views escape you. you want to know true bigotry and intolerance? see your kinfolk represented above.

  71. Thanks for clarifying that. While your first statement was poorly worded, I, for one, suspected your intent and considered asking you about it. Assuming your intent was literal, as your detractor did, is a squandering of one’s intelligence. Genuinely bad ideas should be eradicated..by means of the best education we can provide to the largest number of people. Exposing shams and disinformation is a necessary step toward that end.

  72. Our nation was founded on the tenant of Religious Freedom. How dare anyone try and take that right away from the people of this country. You zealots need to place your guns where the sun fails to shine. You can guess the rest.

  73. Which sect of Christianity? There are 44,000 contradicting protestant sects & only the Catholic Church is the one established by Christ but every protestant, who is still protesting but have no idea why they are, will not want to unite to the Church. They, like the NRA group after the civil war (see Ferrara’s book “Liberty the god that failed” for more info on that) will fail bc they cannot agree to anything & will not unite to the one true Church established by Christ.

  74. Sunni vs Shia battles will be frivolous horseplay in comparison to Catholic vs Protestant battles.

    Just look at Ireland.

    These morons are blowing it out of the collective behinds without giving a thought to consequences.

  75. To say that the Republicans, which I am not, are like the Nazis during the early years of Germany Nazism is saying that the Republicans are leftist. Nazism was (is) a politically leftist ideology, which Republicans tend to go the other from. Of note though, it is true that the Republican party is only slightly different than the Democrat Party, both are mostly the same when it comes to economic policy as well in general. In fact, when you look at the two major political parties, the Republican Party of today, and especially during the years of George W. Bush’s Presidency, is closure to the political ideology of the Democrat Party during Pres. John F. Kennedy’s years than it has ever been similar to the Nazis.

  76. Actually, the Republican Party of today, and especially so under the Presidency of George W. Bush, is more like the Democrat Party during the Presidency of John F. Kennedy than today’s Democrat Party. This is neither good nor bad, but rather to point out that 1799 is an odd year to use, especially considering that the Republican Party had not yet been formed.

  77. An interesting comment. I don’t believe that most Christians would want you eradicated and I’m more inclined to believe that most Christians would rather invite you to attend Church with them than to inflict any bodily harm on you.

  78. My comment was about the Dominion Theology that they are trying to infect the country with. My mother is a Christian try as I might to tell her she is on drugs but look up Dominionism and get back to me

  79. That’s a strong statement, considering Jesus never advocated for government to “take care” of people, he advocated for the people to find it in their hearts to care for one another, from compassion and willingness, not being forced to.

  80. Democracy at the Federal level can’t be abolished because it doesn’t exist. We are a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy, which none of the Founding Fathers wanted, all of whom were far more intelligent than any of us. In a democracy, the strongest rule, in our Constitutional Republic, decisions are made by the majority, but not at the expense of the freedoms of the minority. China is a democracy, the largest democracy in the world in fact. East Germany was a democracy. Cuba is a nominal democracy, North Korea is NOT a democracy, and neither is the United States. As a Constitutional Republic, we have far more rights and freedoms than we would ever have as a democracy.

  81. Jesus of Nazareth, commonly referred to as Jesus Christ, did not establish the Catholic Church. Jesus never had any intention of establishing or starting a new religion, his mission was to clean up Judaism, to set things straight within Judaism, this is why he did not proselytize to the Romans or the Greeks, or generally outside of the Jewish community, although he certainly never turned anyone away and did well all.
    Not even did St. Peter, also a Jew, establish the Catholic Church, although it was St. Peter that laid the ground work for the establishment of the Catholic Church.
    As for Protestants, Protestants have no more claim to being the “one true Church” than does the Catholic Church, as none were established by Jesus, nor by any god.
    With that said though, there is both good and bad in both Catholics and Protestants and the world is better off because of the good works of both groups.

  82. That is not fair, I want to make The Bunniesm the “official religion” it is obvious Lord bunny is the God. It said so in the holy book of the bunnies, it said “Lord bunny created the earth so he can stop making carrot everyday with his bunny magic, and everything in this book is totally real, just you wait until that giant wabbit decent upon us and collect his carrot as his day is actually 100 billion of our years”, well whenever I find the time come up with a complete story for Lordbunny. Well, you see Christion, the “bible” I will write in “never” year will totally prove that Lord bunny created your god, and it has to be true because that book said so. If you find what I said absurd, well it is about as absurd as your holy bible to a non-christian

  83. We already knew Huckabee and Rick Perry are not the sharpest arrows in the quiver. But unfortunately, they appeal the the butter knives of brain power of the voter contingency.

  84. I have been a Presbyterian and a Christian my entire life! And, I must tell you, I AM TOTALLY ASHAMED THAT SO MANY THAT CALL THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS ARE THROWING OUT THE TEACHING OF CHRIST TO FOLLOW A TERRIBLE SINNER AND CREEP LIKE TRUMP! YOU CONSERVATIVE AND HATEFUL PEOPLE WHO DON’T RESPECT OTHER AMERICANS RIGHTS ARE AN EMBARRASSMENT TO AMERICA AND AMERICA’s DEMOCRACY! SOME DAY GOD IS GOING TO PUNISH YOU AND I WILL BE DAMNED HAPPY HE DOES!
