HowDea's Comments in Tennessee.

I am going to comment further on one of today's Drudgies.

The Drudgie in particular is about HowDea using scripture to condemn Republicans.

Of course this is quite silly coming from a man who thought a bike path was more important than church. It is also silly coming from a man whose main constituency is hostile to Christianity. Let us look at some of the comments.

In the first he said Jesus' directive to ''love thy neighbor'' didn't mean one could choose which ones to love. He then remarked that Republicans never brought up the scriptural verse saying it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven.
Oh, please! Who was it again that talked of hating Republicans? I don't recall any exception to the love they neighbor quote regarding Republicans. Two remember the thing in their about hating the sin and loving the sinner. Too often leftists can not separate the sin and the sinner to the left often times the sin is the sinner and the sinner is the sin. The last comment is interesting when one considers the rich probably contribute more to the left than the right.

''We should never let anybody tell us we don't respect faith,'' he said.
You just want to drive Christianity and its tenets from public life. Oh, you respect it all right as long as it doesn't interfere with the murder that abortion is, the murder that we see happening in Florida etc. You respect it as long as its exhortations to an upright life are not abided by.

''It's not about Republicans and Democrats, but about democracy that works,'' he said. ''I'd rather see someone go to work for a Republican campaign than sit on their butt.''
HowDea! WE AGREE ON SOMETHING! This is so right! I too would rather see people working on civic activities (even it means campaigning for the Democrats) than sitting on their butts living a slow death.
