    Not a Christian Republican.

    There is one thing certain we can state, based upon the integrity of Bible truth. Jesus would never endorse or be a member of any party whose platform supports abortion, gay rights, and a general hostility to Bible-believing Christians.

    Who's"we"? The party that endorses war? Sides with the rich? Panders to hatred and fear? Votes down health care 40 times? Cancels food stamps?The party that hates gays? Somehow I don't think Jesus is on your side, pal.

    My Democratic/Christian friends repudiate your drivel and ignorance.

    Sounds to me like a case of damned if you do, damned if you don't; just damned for being Republican. Personally, I'll take damnation by those who think in such terms, as experience with them has taught me I'm not losing a damn thing.

    Why is it Republicans never get anything right the first time? I guess they bank on fear of change and just don't care who gets hurt if it helps them get power.

    The Republican national platform officially condemns gay people as not deserving equal rights. Until the Republicans change their official policy document, it doesn't matter what they say in ads when they're trying to get votes.

    See pages 10 and 31 for specific language.

    Oh and two republican candidates from two blue states running ads a couple of months before an election is a "rush"?

    Yeah, Republicans aren't stampeding to support gay rights. The few who are in tight races in more liberal districts or States will say some gay-friendly things, to gain votes.

    But you can bet if they get in office, they'll follow the Republican Party line and vote anti-gay. They always do. Otherwise the Party will disavow them. Vote for one Republican, you vote for them all.
