Christian conservatives like me should not
let abortion and socialism scare us off Biden

President Donald Trump is presumed to be the choice of Christian conservatives, but is he really what we want? Very few of us would want our children to grow up to be like him. We cringe at what he says and tweets, remembering that “Out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks.” Many of us find his transactional view of life vile in comparison to the Scripture’s teaching of the sacredness of life. (Snip) On abortion, have you ever heard Biden speaking comfortably on the topic? Unlike Hillary Clinton, who emphasized abortion rights in her campaign, Biden is

Comments:

A 'lifelong Republican' who has nothing but glowing tingles for Biden and condemnation for Trump.

Bob Inglis does not speak for this Christian. What are his Bona Fides as a Christian? He sounds more like an idiot. I have no objections to my son being a billionaire who loves America. A billionaire who is a Christian, loves and honors God. Trump is a sinner---aren't we all? The scriptures say love thy neighbor, hasn't Trump done many wonderful people who needed help even long before becoming President.He has given money and the use of his plane. As for Biden I haven't heard him speak comfortably in years just hateful rhetoric and corruption.

Yeah, right. What a bunch of lies. If you don't like murdering babies and don't want Communism, you sure has heck better be smart enough to realize that a vote for ANY Dem will get you millions more dead babies and lots more Communism.....they are WAY past socialism now in their planning.

Probably educated in a government school. This fellow needs to read his Bible with greater care and check his dictionary for the actual definition of "conservative" as it pertains to American politics.

I'll take President Trump over anyone the dems throw at him. No, I do not like everything he says and does but he does govern as a conservative. If fewer babies in utero get murdered then I'm good. So you would rather have Biden (Trojan Horse candidate)? Don't you see the communist/socialist Kamala and Bernie standing behind him, whispering in his ear what to do, what to say, who to support? No thanks.

Liar. Hypocrite. You know what the democrats push when they're in power. You've seen the mental condition Biden's in. Even if he were a Saint, you already know the outcome. You already know what's in play and what's being set up. Massive, illegal fraud. Threats of violence if the Democrats don't win, their past - Jim Crow and the KKK. Their present - wrecked cities, crime and destruction everywhere they control. Their future is the abandonment of America's promise and world-wide Socialism with universal thought police enforcing, not Justice for all, but their personal whims and desires. If you ever were a follower og Godliness your name must have been Judas. But rather, I suspect, you are that whispering serpent, who said to Eve, " See that fruit? Take and eat and you will be like God..." Get thee behind me!

A Christian Conservative who is fine with corrupt, law breaking, no accountability, agencies of government like the FBI and CIA. Really Bob? You are going to go public with that? Did you forget? Are you that stupid? Of course you are which is why you wrote this and the neocommunist USA printed it. You hate Trump, but love a guy who does dirty deals to rip off taxpayer millions using Ukraine thugs. That is peachy keen for a moron like you. Trumps tweets bother you, but innocent American citizens being beaten and killed while American cities burn thanks to the rat party, that gets a pass. Good grief you are an ignorant fool. If you had the necessary honesty and intellect, you would be deeply ashamed for spewing this load of feces.

So this Christian Conservative wants his son to grow up as a liar, who cheats on his wife, sexually assaults a young woman who works for him, bribes a foreign official to allow his son to make millions, befriends a KKK Kleagle and is a strong supporter of destroying the American way of life. Yes, I'm sure he is a Christian Conservative.

USA Today,......Enough said. Same for the NY Time, Washington Compost, CNN, ABC,CBS, NBC et al. Just more naive leftist trash and propaganda. What are these people thinking? What choice is there? A functional, thinking, Pro American or a doddering, early onset Alzheimer's ridden fool and his America hating, lying leftist slut backed by another goofy, delusional and early onset Alzheimers Speaker of the House? Biden has dementia, PigLousy has dementia, Harris is a mean, nasty America hating witch with a "B". The Dims hate their own country and will work to destroy our freedoms and reduce us to slaves and obedient clones. There's only one choice for our survival and that's Donald Trump. You don't have to like him, but you do have to know that he's a functional man who is a realist rather than a fantasist. The endless struggle in life is reality vs fantasy. Choose functional reality over Dimocraptic baloney and fantasy.

Inglis was a congressman from SC, was primaried by Trey Gowdy 10 years ago. Over the years he had a lot of conservative ideas and votes, but was anti-Tea Party, and big on climate change and the DREAM Act. After he left Congress he signed an amicus brief supporting recognition of same-sex marriage. He is an Episcopalian. Apparently he is a 1990s "conservative Christian" and Republican in the same way John Kasich claims he is. Amazing how Trump gets these guys to reveal . . . shout . . . their true selves.

A Christian who turns a blind eye to abortion is NOT a Christian. A Pharisee or a Sadducee, in the hypocrite section, but nowhere near a Christian. Bob, at your Judgment, we will all be fascinated by your explanation.

He is the guy who yelled out loud 'you lie' or some such when the punk gave a State of the Union speech. Inglis was one of the few Republicans who joined the Dems that Wilson should be censured. Just about everything he ever did as a 'conservative' was against Republicans. Why does he bother with his dumb article??? China or is Biden paying him ?????

The author writes: "If Roe v. Wade is overturned, it won’t be that the Supreme Court is declaring an end to abortion; it will simply be returning the issue to the jurisdiction of state legislatures." The above is true, but it's beside the point. Roe v. Wade bars EVERY state from legislating that ALL abortions in the respective are illegal. For far to many years Congress would not address the problems being caused by the differences in abortion related criminal laws in the various states. Although the reasoning in Roe is very weak and the end result is not even close to being supported by precedents, the SC believed it necessary to have some abortion standard that applies in all of the states. That standard is that no state can legislate that ALL abortions in that state are illegal. I believe that SC believes and will always believe that some national standard is better than the possibilities that some states can criminalize all abortions therein and other states can have abortions mills. The SC may in the future tweak Roe but it's not going to allow any state to criminalize all abortions.

What a load. Biden is a criminal has never been the blue collar guy that he tries to pawn himself off to be. His father was an accountant not the miner that he tries to imply he was. He is an extortionist who has stolen millions from countries and companies and laundered through to his family members. He is not a nice guy and never has been. And guess what Ted Bundy was a nice guy. So what, he was still a mass murderer. So many con men are nice guys they have to be to take in people like this nitwit. He is so pathetic as to think that Joe is going to run anything after elected. Harris has already said she is going to be leading. He didn't even try to argue with her. He is an empty shell at this point and any Christian who would vote for a man belonging to a party that encourages not only abortion but infanticide and partial birth abortion is no Christian that I could recognize,

Like so many liberals/leftists espousing the glories of socialism, as does Bob Inglis with his referencing entitlement programs, they disregard the reality that the concern of patriotic Americans is Marxist socialism: “...the stage following capitalism in the transition of a society to communism, characterized by the imperfect implementation of collectivist principles.” The Pilgrims tried socialism and it “...was a total, abject failure and was abandoned after a few short years in the pure interest of survival.”

This guy was primaried out of his congressinal seat by Trey Gowdy.He's a lawyer who then went to work for a think tank that wants to cure Climate Change through free market solutions. In 2015, he signed an amicus brief calling for the recognition of same-sex marriage. he is so dumb he thinks Biden is actually in charge of his campaign and the party agenda. This is the second editorial by a so called Conservative Christian that I've seen today. the other is in the Washington Post. Both editorials tell us that Abortion is not enough of a reason to vote against Biden. Coincidence? I think not.

I'm guessing most if not all of us here did not vote for DJT because we thought he was a Bible-believing Christian. In fact, we know he isn't, although he has had some conversion experience. I don't feel qualified to judge his soul. However, with Donald Trump, he is who he is. He doesn't pretend to be a "holier than thou". Has any multimillionaire President other than Donald Trump (or Congressman) ever not taken his/her salary? This benefits the American people. And furthermore, he almost never mentions this. He has been under attack every day, attacks based on FALSE charges, lies and deceit. I haven't heard ONE Democrat, and certainly not Biden or Mattress Harris decry the false charges and unjust attacks on the man or on his wife or on his children. The "opposition" party has unleashed the demons of hatred. Is it any wonder that so much violence has been spawned? Why aren't Inglis and his ilk speaking out against this? Inglis never mentions Biden's shady relationship with the married Jill before her divorce. He never mentions Biden's graft and the sneaky corrupt dealings with Ukraine and China, enriching his family members to the tune of hundreds of millions. No. Biden has feet of clay, dirty, deceitful mud, hip deep in the gory remains of unborn babies. The author reminds me of the Pharisees whom Jesus said were like a cup polished and shiny on the outside, but filthy on the inside. Inglis can vote however he wants, he has freedom of speech, he can practice his faith. Behind Biden-Harris is a leftist committee the nature of which is no "soft socialism". They have already announced that they plan to "pack the Court," to essentially take over massive parts of our economy to control it and the wealth and therefore the liberty of the citizenry. We have already seen how they can't wait to control speech and the freedom described in the First Amendment for our rights to speech and worship unfettered by the government. The Biden people are hardcore. They are in league with blm and other violence-prone radical organizations DEDICATED to the overthrow of our Constitutional Republic. Their schemes could over night upend everything, and then the Supreme Court won't matter one little bit as it will be rendered a collection of effete pedants. They are eager wield totalitarian power as vigorously as any tyrannical dictator. And Hillary wants revenge. Does Inglis condemn this? These are a few reasons I and my family and friends (in several States) would not consider Lyin' Biden. We've seen President Trump act tirelessly for the American people through all of the obstacles, threats and accusations. He has not done anything unConstitutional. He has done much to improve the lives of millions who have never benefitted from politicians who promise to do so, but instead use their position of power to stuff their own pockets and then compromise their so-called "values" allowing the administrative State to corrupt --intellectually and morally-- American children in schools, for decades neglect and abuse veterans, and fund and make sure the perpetual existence of the most brutal human rights abuse of aborting babies all the way to the actual birth process (in some States, NY and VA, for example). I don't like some of the language and crude discourse from POTUS at times. Yet, the outside of the "cup" is what it is. There's no pretense. An old preacher once said, "Be who you is. Cuz if you is who you ain't, you ain't who you is." The old preacher makes sense to me. Inglis is just another self-righteous pompous man.

I need to amend the first line of my #46: i mistakenly said that we know that Donald Trump is "not Bible-believing." What i As thshould have said is that he does not demonstrate familiarity with the Scriptures as someone who reads, studies and meditates on the Word. Sad to say, Biblical illiteracy among Christians is not a good thing. As the saying goes, when you point your finger at someone, you've got four fingers pointing back at you.

NEW YORK — Coronavirus continues to spread “at an alarming rate” in several New York City neighborhoods, the city health department said Sunday, a day before it is expected to decide whether to shut down private schools and nonessential businesses there. The COVID infection rate in Gravesend/Homecrest is 6.75%, up from 6% last week; 5.34% in Midwood, up from 4.95%; and 4.41% in Borough Park, up from 3.53%, according to the Health Department. It also flagged Kew Gardens, Edgemere/Far Rockaway, Bensonhurst/Mapleton, Gerritsen Beach/Homecrest/Sheepshead Bay and Flatlands/Midwood as areas of concern. “Seven of the eight neighborhoods saw increases even from the

The clip was viewed more than 1.5 million times and generated comments regarding Biden's mental state. Some who shared the quick clip claimed Biden made a gaffe, or "botched" the pledge, including Dinesh D'Souza, The Federalist, PJ Media and Fox News' Sean Hannity.

Less than six weeks before the election, one of the most profound disappointments among some of Joe Biden’s supporters is that he doesn’t even seem to be trying. If some Democrats are correct, crushing “The Donald” should have been easy. After all (according to them), President Trump is an impeached, sex-offending, tax-evading, white supremacist, coronavirus-mismanaging, sexist, racist, Islamophobic, homophobic, misogynistic, sexist liar who is wildly unpopular. And Biden has long showed a hefty advantage in the polls. If all of that’s true, then Biden need do little more than show up, and winning should be a piece of cake

As Democratic senators begin mapping out how they will wield their limited procedural weapons in the fight over President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, they are grappling with a central question: How much legitimacy do they give his candidate? With little power to actually derail Trump’s pick, Democrats are coming under considerable pressure from their activist base to use every tactic at their disposal to not just throw sand in the gears of the confirmation fight, but to portray the consideration of expected nominee Amy Coney Barrett as a farce that shouldn’t even occur.

If calling a “lid" enters the mainstream American lexicon, this will be the week it all started. Joe Biden called a lid — the arcane term reporters use when a politician is done traveling for the day — at 1:02 p.m. Friday; 9:20 a.m. Thursday; 9:22 a.m. Tuesday and 8:34 a.m. Saturday. Biden’s early turn-ins provoked the Twitter set, professionally nervous Democrats (OK, bedwetters) and, notably, Donald Trump to scratch their heads or rain down ridicule. “Did you see he did a ‘lid’ this morning again?” Trump asked Thursday evening in Jacksonville, Fla., pausing to offer a definition for the

New York's attorney general on Friday recommended the New York Police Department get out of the business of routine traffic enforcement, a radical change she said would prevent encounters like one last year in the Bronx that escalated quickly and ended with an officer fatally shooting a motorist. Attorney General Letitia James, who acts as a special prosecutor appointed to investigate certain police killings, argued that traffic stops for minor infractions often end in violence and that Allan Feliz's death last October after he was pulled over for a seat belt violation “further underscores the need for this change.” James’

"CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King delivered a scolding of sorts to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Friday over what King called Pelosi's "egregious" attacks against President Trump and his administration. King pressed Pelosi on her statements that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden should not debate President Trump. The speaker stood behind her remarks, but stressed that she expected the former vice president ot be "excellent" in the three one-on-one showdowns. (Tweet) "The president has no fidelity to fact or truth and actually, in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution of the United States," Pelosi

WASHINGTON — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg became the first woman to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol Friday. She may also be the only person to lie in state who has had a mourner do calisthenics in front of their casket. Bryant Johnson, Ginsburg's longtime trainer, dropped and gave the Justice a quick trio of push-ups when it was his turn to approach the flag-draped coffin shortly after 10:30 a.m. ABC7 spoke with Johnson last year about his relationship with Justice Ginsburg, who he trained for more than 20 years. He said in November that she was back to

WILMINGTON, Del. — The final stretch of a presidential campaign is typically a nonstop mix of travel, caffeine and adrenaline. But as the worst pandemic in a century bears down on the United States, Joe Biden is taking a lower key approach. Since his Aug. 11 selection of California Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate, Biden has had 22 days where he either didn’t make public appearances, held only virtual fundraisers or ventured from his Delaware home solely for church, according to an Associated Press analysis of his schedules. He made 12 visits outside of Delaware during that period

DENVER -- College students at Regis University are complaining about conditions during a mandatory quarantine. Last week, the university announced a two-week quarantine for students at Residence Village that affects 137 students. The decision came after the school and the Denver Department of Public Health and Environment(DDPHE) found that 57% of cases at the university could be traced to the townhome village. "The fact that we’re paying so much money and being treated like this, I don’t think it’s OK," said Caitlin McFarlane, a junior at the school.

MIAMI — Progressive activists backing Joe Biden in Florida say they’ve made millions of phone calls, sent hundreds of thousands of text messages and even written thousands of letters to persuade voters to support the Democratic presidential nominee. But one thing they’re largely not doing — and growing increasingly worried about — is talking to voters face to face. Now, with the number of coronavirus cases down from their July peak in Florida and Election Day less than six weeks away, the state’s largest left-leaning grassroots organizations and political field operations are making a last-minute push to get back in

Two Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee said they will not meet with Amy Coney Barrett -- President Trump’s pick to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court. Trump announced on Saturday evening that he intends to nominate Barrett to fill the vacancy on the nation’s highest court after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg last week. Democrats indicated that they will oppose Barrett’s nomination, citing her conservative credentials which they see as a threat to health care and abortion rights, while also arguing that it is too close to Election Day for Trump to nominate a justice.

Vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris called Tupac Shakur the “best rapper alive” during an interview at the NAACP’s virtual convention Friday — even though the legendary emcee has been dead for more than two decades. “Best rapper alive?” CNN commentator Angela Rye asked the Oakland native. “Tupac,” Harris answered with little hesitation before Rye reminded her that the West Coast icon had passed away long ago. “Not alive, I know, I keep doing that,” Harris said with a laugh.

This is not the kind of big news you want to get on an otherwise slow Sunday morning, but here it is. Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo is reporting this morning that there will be no Durham interim report or indictments coming before the election. By the wording, she may actually be saying there’s no report coming at all.If true, this is a travesty of justice of the highest order given what has transpired the last five years.(Tweet) This isn’t someone leaking to the Times to cover their backside. Bartiromo is typically solid and is not anti-Trump in the least.Whether or not you believe this news will probably depend

It’s up to God to decide if Nancy Pelosi is a truly terrible person, but she’s giving an excellent imitation of one here on earth. Pelosi seemingly believes that 2020 has given her license to violate all political norms. In the past two months, Pelosi has called federal law officers “stormtroopers,” violated the mask rule she insists upon for others, claimed that she was a victim of a hair salon “set up,” (snip) Her worst act ever, though, could be her siding with the mob with the lie that the Louisville police involved with Breonna Taylor’s death are murderers.

Forgetting who she is, Meghan Markle, duchess of Sussex, has decided she'd also like to become president of the United States.

Her foray into U.S. politics is getting particularly unseemly for someone who hasn't renounced her title of duchess. First she started hanging out with Michelle Obama, "teaming up for female empowerment" as the press release, I mean USA Today article, put it.
Which Biden Shows Up Tuesday? 38 replies

If this is the most important election in decades, this is its most important moment. Thus far, this campaign has been a referendum on Trump; Tuesday’s debate will be one on Biden. Its outcome depends on which Biden shows up. Like all races with a president seeking re-election, this one has centered on the incumbent. Thanks to a hostile media and Trump’s aggressive use of social media, America has had plenty of material for judgement. Topping it off, 2020 has been an acutely tumultuous year: Beginning with an impeachment trial and now a contentious Supreme Court vacancy — with a pandemic, a recession, and nationwide violence in between.

Sen. Kamala Harris ripped President Trump's Supreme Court pick in a searing statement, setting up a showdown between the 2020 Democratic vice presidential nominee and Judge Amy Coney Barrett when she appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee next month.“Just yesterday, I paid my respects to the legendary Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who devoted her life to fighting for Equal Justice Under Law and a more fair and just world," Harris wrote Saturday. "Her passing is devastating, and it would be a travesty to replace her with a justice who is being selected to undo her legacy and erase everything she did for our country."

They ‘civilized’ these ‘savage’ children in the ‘superior’ ways of White people, while using them as props in their lifelong pictures of denial, while cutting the biological parents of these children out of the picture of humanity.”
