    True, but it does condemn people of the same sex having sexual relations. Fortunately it is not a political guide, but spiritual. So even though a Christian should not condone it, they are free in government to vote their conscience.

    As for abortion even the Israelites did not believe the fetus was human until after the first few months. Even after that the soul did not enter until the head broke through during birth. So I will differ to them as the experts on that one as far as the Hebrew God goes.

    Part of the problem with abortion is the KJV translation of the Bible saying "thou shall not kill" when actually it was "thou shall not murder."

    So a Christian in my eyes could support abortion in the first trimester, but that's just me.

    Evidently, you are one of those "Christians" I referred to earlier.

    Yea because Christianity needs to be splintered even more over politics. I am certain that is what Christ, wanted for his church.

    Then please quote the passage of the Bible that says that abortion, gay marriage, or socialism is wrong.

    It can be found right next to the clauses in the constitution that empower the federal government to run health care, ban the possession of automatic small arms and declares abortion is a fundamental right.

    By this I mean:

    Are political positions and the support they have (in some cases) becoming more belief based than reason based?
    Excellent poll!

    My opinion is yes.. clearly and totally.
