    Me too!

    While there is a certain strain of fundamentalism that I can't stand, many so called "fundies" are rational, intelligent people who don't go around waving a Bible at everyone and ranting and raving about hellfire and brimstone. Those lunatics are just more noticeable and get more press.

    Well Churches have a lot of benefit including removal of taxes and such. They aren't techincally allowed to campaign, and thus I find campaigning in a Church proper to be a bit suspicious and would think it would be best not to open the can of worms.

    Yes, it was. Less the Church had the opposing candidate able to speak as well. Because it's essentially a church endorsement of a candidate.

    well, thank you - I'll admit, I'm more likely to support her after that.

    what if they don't believe in an "invisibil man-God", but a "God of who is without form", like the jewish or muslim God?

    He said:

    Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    Blessed are those who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
    Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the earth.
    Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be filled.
    Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.
    Blessed are the pure in heart,
    for they will see God.
    Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.
    Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

    Until they can demonstrate objectively that it actually exists, it's still an invisible, imaginary friend.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I agree. After reading those quotes by her, I like her even more.

    I'm not voting for her for a vast amount of other reasons.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.
