Quote# 55919

Why did 18-to-29-year-old evangelicals vote for Barack Obama despite his apostasy on the fundamental moral issues of abortion and same-sex unions? They voted 32 percent for Obama, twice the percentage of that demographic group who voted for John Kerry in 2004.

Many of these young people identify "social justice" as the reason that led them to relegate the prime moral issues of life and marriage to the back burner. But the term "social justice" does not define a moral cause; it is leftwing jargon to overturn those who have economic and political power.

What caused young evangelicals, the children of the so-called "religious right," to change their moral imperatives so dramatically? Most likely it's the attitudes and decision-making they learned in the public schools, which 89 percent of U.S. students attend.

It's always nice when someone comes out and admits that we're right about their priorities. If I ever become a fundamentalist, please at least make sure I am sane enough to understand that dealing with massive suffering throughout the world is more important than anal sex.

Sounds like they had other priorities than their parents concerning the things they voted for.
And maybe their vote was more in line with WWJD (what would Jesus do) than the vote of their parents for McCain/Palin ;)

No, that's bvecause nobody actually gives a fuck about your fixation with anal sex and scmissonring. Get over the anal phase, jeez, straight boys get over it around 10 anyway...

Apostasy is the abandonment of religion, nothing more.
Abortion and same sex unions aren't mentioned at all by jebus.

"the term "social justice" does not define a moral cause"

Poverty and suffering, which hurt people aren't moral issues but what two people do in private which hurt nobody is?

most likely the saw through the guff of the Right, and the lies, and the corruption, and the stupidity, and voted for change and a hope for survival.

Whether Obama delivers will need to be seen

Well, it's nice to see you've considered all the possibilities; even the one where they rejected your policies not because they were brainwashed or stupid or evil, but simply because your policies suck. Oh, wait, you missed that one out - I'm sure it was just a minor slip up that you'd never repeat, though.

What it means is they aren't buying into your bible fed hysteria, and know 'social justice' is most definitely a moral cause.

If it's the public schools then why didn't the same number vote fo Kerry? You didn't think this through did you?

Maybe they are able to see that there are more important problems than whether or not two guys fall in love or some scared teenager has an abortion.

Right, Christians can't simply be disillusioned with conservatism and start going left. It has to be a conspiracy.

But the term "social justice" does not define a moral cause;
There was nothing immoral about slavery, the holocaust, or various other miseries that occurred, but having sex without a publicly recognized social contract is terrible? You are a weirdo, nothing more, nothing less, in the same group of people that claim to have telepathic communication with space-lizards. In the past, people like you would be forcefully kept away from a microphone, or thrown in a mental home if that was no longer practical. Now, you are on channels 153, 154, and 184.

the fundamental moral issues of abortion and same-sex unions

How did those get to be the fundamental moral issues? Book, chapter, and verse, or it didn't happen.

But the term "social justice" does not define a moral cause

Parable of the sheep and the goats, bitch. Oh, I forgot: That's a part of your perfect holy book that you ignore because it doesn't mention teh kweer.

Most likely it's the attitudes and decision-making they learned in the public schools, which 89 percent of U.S. students attend.

Finally, we have some good news from U.S. public schools.
