Quote# 46099

[in response to someone saying being a liberal or conservitave isn't what makes you christian]

You are so wrong. Liberals are confused theologically.

Liberalism definitely goes against Christian values.

Haven't you begun to notice that you are swimming against the tide on this forum? Don't you ever wonder why? It's because your posts are always liberal and negative.

Your posts would fit in better over at Huffington Post or Daily Kos.

You are divisive, Rondaben.

And don't try to redefine the word "liberal" or redefine Christian values.

It won't go over very well here.

Aren't you people into free-market economic policies? That's what "liberal" really means, you twits.

Allegory for Jesus

"Liberalism definitely goes against Christian values. "

You know...the ones that have to do with peace, and tolerance of other human beings...

Liberalism definitely goes against Christian values.

Treating everyone equally and being tolerant to everyones elses beliefs. Disgusting!

Jesus was a liberal. He preached, among others, equality among all people, which is definitely a liberal concept, as well as socialist ideals, which is so far left it has no place in modern American conservatism.

"Liberalism definitely goes against Christian values."

Yep. We sure as hell don't want to be like that liberal hippie, Jesus, do we?

"And don't try to redefine the word "liberal""

And by that, I'm sure you mean, "Don't try to use the word 'liberal' around here with its actual definition."

I've never been able to see a real distance between liberal values and Christian values, except for the secularism of the former. Sure you guys disagree on issues like abortion and gay marriage but you agree on values like altruism and turning the other cheek (at least in theory.) Something like Objectivism, for example, with it's focus on selfishness seems more like the "opposite of Christianity" to me. Just throwing that out there.

Your opinions are too different. They make us think and stuff.

8/29/2008 5:06:18 AM


Don't try to use your brain.

Manipulative commercial interests + ignorant fundies = best political party platform, got it.

8/29/2008 5:28:18 AM


What a fucking Nazi

8/29/2008 5:49:42 AM


It ocurred to me tonight that I truly despise Rapture Ready with every ounce of my being. I can't say that I hate very many things but these fucking cowards who hide behind their chicken shit moderators while throwing rocks at EVERYBODY really get under my skin. If they had any integrity they would actually step out of their little treehouse and face the rest of the world - but then again, if they had any integity, they wouldn't be fundies would they?

8/29/2008 6:12:59 AM


Liberalism and conservatism are far from mutually exclusive, you fuckwit. They just happen to be the only parties you have. The political opposites are

Conservatism - Reformism/Revolutionism
Liberalism/Capitalism - Socialism or Despotism

8/29/2008 6:42:18 AM


I almost wish rapture ready was completely blocked for non-members. Reading their posts not only frightens me, but it makes me so terribly sad for those people... and for humanity. I can sorta understand a god belief, but the shit they spew? Wow. Just wow.

8/29/2008 7:00:11 AM


Rondaben isn't divisive. Just isn't close minded about anything new. You have your fucked up definition of liberal. And she tries to show you you are mistaken, but you refuse to pull your head out of your ass or your fingers out of your ears and listen.

8/29/2008 7:39:38 AM


This is yet another reason why religion should be kept out of the politics.

8/29/2008 7:56:24 AM


Someone doesn't know their Bible - like most fundies. Let this agnostic show you up! What about the three quotes below, and how come you don't know them?

Proverbs 11:25

The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself..

Isaiah 32:5

The vile person shall no more be called liberal...

2 Corinthian 9:13

Whiles by the experiment of this ministration they glorify God for your professed subjection unto the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution unto them, and unto all men.


The misuse of the word liberal is actually corrupting the Holy Word of the Bible - i.e. God's holy Word, don't you think? In other words, hypocrisy is being liberally displayed.

Jesus Klingon

The real world has liberal Christians and conservative atheists. Political boundaries aren't as clean-cut as you want them to be.

Waiting for God

This explains a lot.

"Liberalism emphasizes individual rights and equality of opportunity. Different forms of liberalism may propose very different policies, but they are generally united by their support for a number of principles, including extensive freedom of thought and speech, limitations on the power of governments, the rule of law, the free exchange of ideas, a market or mixed economy, and a transparent system of government."

(Source = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberalism)

Land of the free eh? Well, obviously not if the Christian right get their way. Land of the repressed, land of 'traditional' values such as beating and murdering people who don't agree with you.

Liberalism = basic civic freedom but most especially freedom of thought and it's this part which you really don't like isn't it? As far as I am concerned anyone not adhering to some form of liberal values dosen't deserve to live in the 'land of the free'.

JESUS WAS A LIBERAL!!! Rapture ready is the biggest bunch of fake Christians I have ever seen. They keep talking about the Bible but apparently nobody over there ever reads the damn thing, so they make stuff up to fit their political fake religious agenda.

8/29/2008 10:56:25 AM


Haha, that guy is getting the shit kicked out of him. Do NOT remotely imply that Jesus is not a rich white republican on that board, or you will get the boot very quickly.

8/29/2008 10:58:49 AM


Funny how the loving Christian fellowship crap disolves as fast as someone dares to have the balls to *gasp* disagree!

Yes, it would ruin your fantasy world if those words were used with the correct definition.

For the first 51 years of my 73 year life, I believed this crock of shit.
mercyandgrace you have been brainwashed to delusion.
By no stretch of the imagination can ANY of Rupture Ready be considered as being christians.
It is a cult obsessed with doomsday, believing only they will survive by being "taken up" when in fact you've already been taken in by a bunch of proven charlatans.
At least one of your flock has been making enquiries about the location of bomb shelters, and at least two of your members have threatened suicide believe the Rupture had come and gone. Doesn't that ring alarm bells? - sorry, trumpets.

8/29/2008 11:47:26 AM


Do y'all think mercyandgrace even knows what is said at Daily Kos or the Huffington Post, or is she going by what she hears about them from Bill O'Reilly?

8/29/2008 12:09:16 PM



I.e if you don't fit in perfectly with the crazy club at rapture ready you've GOT to be wrong.
