"Palin's Daughter Gives Birth to Son Named Tripp"
She's native Alaskan. She stumbled on the way into the hospital. Hence the name.
From the ashes.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
I never claimed otherwise except to note that xian dogma and xian practice are quite disparate. I'm pointing out that social conservatives are hypocrits, if you happen to fall into both categories, xian and socon then you qualify for asshat as well as hypocrit. If you, meaning you and not the generic "your type" do not fall into either category then don't worry about it.Since the Palins do not represent other than thier own views, what difference does it make?
A true socon would be disgusted by such a display of a very un-socon values.
Your powers of observation are lacking. I'm not under any such impression. I am under the impression that most of the BA-xians I've ever read or spoken with are nothing short of holier than though hypocrits who make all sorts of jesus claims and live by none. When confronted they ALL say the same thing 'nobody is perfect' or 'we are all sinners'... that only works if you are actually making an effort.You seem to be under the impression because someone gets saved they become little Christian robots who must all do good and never make mistakes. Well my ignorant friend, let me take the cloth from your eyes and open your mind.
Oh look, there it is... How many times are you allowed to "try" before it's apparent that you're not really trying?We are all sinners, none of us are perfect except one, God. If this were not the case Jesus would not have been crucified. Picture getting clearer now? We try to be Christ like, but we know it is impossible. So we ask forgiveness and try not to make the same mistake.
How would we know? I doubt they went to every city near them and shouted their sins to everyone... ie People Mag.Did any of the disciples hang their heads forever in shame when they sinned? No. They asked forgiveness and moved on like we are supposed to do.
Not only have I read the bible, cover to cover more than once but I debate with xians on a fairly regular basis. I also have a history with the RCC. Unfortunately, you don't seem to have the same credentials because if you did, you wouldn't make such an assumption about me without any type of knowledge.Now if you really wanted to know what a Christian is supposed to be. You mite crack open the Bible and look at the teachings of Christ. Rather than making generalizations and blanket statements about what a Christian is supposed to be according to your own uneducated nonsense.

So it looks like I do get to make the parameters after all.
I don't sit in judgment of others, but I do believe in the morality which I also follow.
Yep I must be a hypocrite. Either that or your comment is just ignorant.
Very bigoted I mite add.
You think in blanket statements and hold bigoted views of all you perceive to be a member of a group realistically or not. Then you have the nerve to say I pass judgement.
Well prove me a hypocrite. Please post links to those people I have sat in judgment of so I may be judged equally.
