    300 gather to pray for affordable health care

    This is a real dog-n-pony show. Is this what the Dems are wanting townhall meetings to become? Also, this kinda goes against the religion hater faction of the Liberal movement. Could it be called a violation of the seperation of church and state? The Dems are making themselves into real laughing stocks.

    GARDEN GROVE About 300 people from throughout the county got together Sunday and prayed for affordable health care in a vigil that included Christian pastors and a public official.

    The prayer vigil, held at St. Callistus Catholic Church, was about the national health-care reform package that is being debated now, but also about the loss of health care in California because of the state budget crisis.

    In latino communities the parish church is the town hall. What would be ridiculous is a bunch of people from the rich section of town driving over to disrupt things. The congress woman said that there are 5 other reps. from Orange county, plenty of opportunity for jackassery should Orange county residents wish exercise their right to yell random insults and wild accusations in public.

    I think you are pissed because it worked.

    Oh, yeah, it worked. It was a very successful propaganda show.

    I don't believe it is. From what I gather these folks are merely praying for the less fortunate people who desperately need affordable health care, something quite common in the religious community.

    Is this what the Dems are wanting townhall meetings to become?
    No. This seemed to be a prayer vigil, something not everyone is comfortable attending. I'm not aware of any Democrats advocating this type of setting. If you know of any Democratic lawmakers who are, quote them.

    Also, this kinda goes against the religion hater faction of the Liberal movement. Could it be called a violation of the seperation of church and state? The Dems are making themselves into real laughing stocks.
    I'm under the impression that you're more concerned with mocking religion than you are about what Democrats think.

    Perhaps if they were in church, useing witchcraft to get the demons cast from their rightous souls it would be just fine.

    Praying for uninsured people....for shame.

    I'm a Christian and a liberal. Your caricature of liberals is disgusting and putrid. More lies and hatred from a conservative. When does it stop?
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Townhall meetings can be whatever the person holding them wants them to be. Don't like it, I got two words for you: "boo hoo".

    There is no significant "religion hater faction" withing the liberal movement.

    No, it cannot be called a violation of the separation of church and state, not in any way. Please actually spend some time studying the concept before invoking it so wrongly again, you will not look so foolish.

    You are right in that some one is making themselves into a real laughing stock, but it's not democrats.

    You got a whole 6 posts(now 7) replying to you, and this is somehow getting "libbos fired up"? Don't give yourself that much credit, you are just an easy target, your arguments are so easy to tear apart, as has already been done here. Interestingly, you have not managed to(nor attempted to) counter a single "libbo" argument in this thread. Keep up the good work!
