    Re: Can you be X ideology and a christian?

    Personally, I think the question and answer were absolutely dumb. The problem is, everybody thinks their version of Christianity is "right", and only their version is right. Anybody who doesn't believe exactly as I believe is wrong, wrong, wrong. It's a vicious cycle of idiocy.

    So in answer to the poll, yes to all. In response to Santorum...go **** yourself, you judgmental little prick.

    Personal religious beliefs should not influence the ruling of a group, especially one that is as diverse as ours is.

    We will find out at the end. Do you follow the New Testament, or not? The Book of Acts talks of speaking in tongues as one step in salvation. How many social conservatives speak in tongues?

    Its one of many gifts of the spirit.

    12:27 Now you are Christ’s body, and each of you is a member of it. 12:28 And God has placed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, gifts of healing, helps, gifts of leadership, different kinds of tongues. 12:29 Not all are apostles, are they? Not all are prophets, are they? Not all are teachers, are they? Not all perform miracles, do they? 12:30 Not all have gifts of healing, do they? Not all speak in tongues, do they? Not all interpret, do they? 7 12:31 But you should be eager for the greater gifts.

    Yet personal, nonreligious beliefs should?

    I would venture a guess that *at the end*, nobody will much care either way.

    They might, but even if they do, it's their concern, not that of the rest of us. That being said, at the end of life, a rational analytical state of mind is not typically present.

    I said facism. It seems that most of the ideals of facism make it hard to follow both Mussolini and Christ.

    Outside of that, you can't be a Marxist and a Christian. Marxism includes atheism as a key tenet -- if you believe in God, you're not a Marxist, and if don't believe in God, you're not a Christian.

    Wellll, the blather that comes out of talk radio could be considered speaking in tongues.

    A lot of it makes about as much sense.
