DALLAS (Reuters) - Exit polls during the U.S. presidential primaries in Missouri and Tennessee last week show the Democratic Party has some support from white evangelicals, a group strongly associated with the Republican Party.
Commissioned by Faith in Public Life, a non-partisan resource center, and conducted by Zogby International during the primaries on February 5, the surveys were the first to ask Democratic voters if they were evangelical or born-again Christians.
The findings reinforce other surveys showing that Republicans still command most of the support of this voting bloc but by no means have a monopoly on its affections....
If I were you (especially given your concern about one-world gov't. etc.) I'd reconsider the idea of being open to swinging either Republican or Democrat. The Democrats cannot wait to give our sovereignty over to the rotten and corrupt U.N. (which congressional Democrats nearly to man voted to have oversee the 2004 election). The Democrats are the party of big government, economic controls, social program controls, abortion-on-demand, and one-world government.
(Not to say that I'm being an apologist for the Republicans either though--Bush has been an incredible big-gov't. president).
I cannot STAND John McCain but I'm going to vote for him for no other reason than that I expect decent judges out of him. With Alito, Scalia, Thomas, and Roberts, we are poised (if we can get another judge or two) at the precipice of getting Roe v. Wade overturned and halting judicial tyranny.
As for what was the case in turn-of-the-19th-century politics, I hardly see how that makes any difference now--the parties are not the same. The Republicans are no longer the party of small-government, and most conservative evangelicals are statolaters. Much has changed.
Again: It's an UNEQUIVOCAL HISTORIC FACT that in late-19th/early-20th Century AMERICA; that it was the DEMOCRATIC Party, under the leadership of WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN, that was the Political Party with the MOST Born-Again/Fundamentalist/Evangelical CHRISTIAN VOTERS.
Old Southern-Methodist Fundamentalist Evangelist/Revivalist BOB JONES SR. (Founder of BOB JONES UNIVERSITY) wasn't ONLY a Personal Friend of SECRETARY OF STATE [In President WOODROW WILSON'S Cabinet] WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN; but he was ALSO a Strong Political Supporter of "DEMOCRATS" & WILLIAM JENNINGS (A Fundamentalist-Presbyterian Lay Minister) BRYAN'S 3 DEMOCRATIC CAMPAIGNS For PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES in 1896, 1900 & 1908 !
It's safe to say that this recent poll is 100% ACCURATE & TRUE with regard to Fundamentalist/Evangelical Born-Again CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATIC VOTERS Voting for DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES this last PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY ELECTION (Feb 5th).
Since 1/3 of U.S. Voters Vote on PURELY POLITICAL PARTY lines: That is, 1/3 Vote REPUBLICAN, 1/3 Vote DEMOCRATIC; and the remaining 1/3 Vote INDEPENDENT or are INDEPENDENT Voters; Who can swing-their-vote either way: REPUBLICAN or DEMOCRATIC !
I personally am ONE of THOSE LATTER 1/3 VOTERS that can swing-their-vote EITHER WAY: REPUBLICAN or DEMOCRATIC !
Tony, thank you for the reference. I found a good price for a hard cover edition of "Table Talk," which seems to be unabridged at www.monergismbooks.com And, I just ordered a copy.
Many years ago, I read an interesting/inspirational biography of Martin Luther.
When I was growing up, my Mother made several different offers of small bits of change (dimes and quarters) to my sisters, brother and me for memorizing and reciting several Psalms, and one hymn was also included.
We learned and recited Psalms 23, 8, 100, and 1 and "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God," by Martin Luther. Those verses and that hymn have encouraged and strengthened me from childhood and through many "trials and tribulations."
Due to the ravages of age, my Mothers sight is failing. During a dinner which we shared recently, I asked her a question about the first chapter of John. She began reciting verse after verse the first chapter of John. I think she recited the first 16 verses. It was beautiful.
Mother was raised as a Lutheran but she claims that she came to know Christ as Saviour as a young adult through the ministry of Donald Grey Barnhouse at Tenth Presbyterian Church.
Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, we have deficits? Have you ever wondered why, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don't propose a federal budget. The president does. You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does. You and I don't write the tax code. Congress does. You and I don't set fiscal policy. Congress does. You and I don't control monetary policy. The Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president and nine Supreme Court justices - 545 human beings out of the 300 million - are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible. - "THE 545 PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR AMERICA'S WOES," by Charley Reese
The Democratic party is Satan's party and the Republican party is his other party.Remember he always burns the candle from both ends. For we war not against flesh and blood,and he is the god of this world,love not the world nor the things of the world.The last time I checked,the political systems of this world were definitely not of the kingdom of God.So I guess we are just going to have to wait and see who the judgement of God on our cuntry is going to put in charge. I mean there is no doubt that we are under the judgement of God,Is there? I really wish it was different but!
Susan: Google "Martin Luther's Table Talk". Better yet buy a copy and add it to your book shelf. (Otherwise, you will be sitting at your computer for weeks.) Read the index - you'll find the part you're looking for. The Great Reformer was described by the Pope as a "Wild Boar Loose In The Vineyard". Try to get an unabridged edition so you can get the true flavor of this no-nonsense man whose courage the true Biblical Faith owes so much to. He asked no quarter and took none from any man.

Hello Tony, thank you for your comment. I am curious as to the meaning of your last sentence. If you could clarify it further, I would appreciate it.
Last night, I read a very good article, "America's Greatest Threat," by Rev. Ted Pike.
"Mainstream media gives the impression that the anti-Christian ideas they promote have risen on their own merit. Nothing could be further from the truth. We evolved from slime? A woman has every right to kill her unborn child? Sodomy is "gay" (a happy alternative to marriage)? These powerfully destructive premises are artificially and constantly inserted into national discussion. Traditional Christian values are excluded or belittled."
Zbignew Brezinski has endorsed Barak Obama and has been reported to be his chief foreign policy advisor. "The Grand Chessboard," a 215 page book, was written by Brezinski and published in 1997.
In his summary, Brezinski says the economic and human sacrifices required for the pursuit of world domination are not congenial to democratic instincts. Brezinski suggests that Americans will only support such sacrifices if they are provided with a direct external challenge comparable to the Pearl Harbor attack...
The Nazi-like plan for world domination must have fallen on sympathetic eyes when our president read it.
In 1942, during World War II, Prescott S. Bush (grandfather to our current president) was either a director or a top executive in four corporations that were seized by the U.S. Government under the "Trading With the Enemy" act. The four corporations were: The Union Banking Corporation, the Holland-America Trading Corporation, the Seamless Steel Equipment Corporation and the Silesian-American Corp. A financial Godfather to all these businesses was Brown Brothers-Harriman. Prescott Bush was managing director. Learn more click:

Yes, indeed, exit polls during the U.S. presidential primaries in Missouri and Tennessee last week show the DEMOCRATIC PARTY has some (MORE support than the Satanic-Vaticanist controlled media would have US think) from White Fundamentalist/Evangelical BORN-AGAIN CHRISTIANS !

Susan Miller: Trust me, there is no one who has a brain who can not see the fact that U.S. Foreign policy (especially as it pertains to the Middle East) is being dictated by the Zionist Lobby. The term "Neo-Con" is just a sanitized name for "Zionist". Sadly, if you continue with your campaign I have no doubt that you will be blacklisted by this forum, as the "lobby" has infiltrated Evangelical Christianity's innards thanks to a century of careful intrigue involving the Anglo-Saxon mentalities of England and the USA, primarily due to the fact that England controlled Palestine and the USA was correctly seen as replacing England as the toughest, biggest, richest guy on the block. As Menachim Begin said "there are only 2% Jews in America, but there are 32% Evangelicals, they are the ones to convince." The rest of the non-Evangelical "Christians" and even Jews who don't see things the Zionist way are marginalized by being called "anti-Semites". The influence of the lobby in network broadcasting, print media, entertainment, politics (due to money) etc. is so great that it's tentacles reach everywhere. In fact, I may now be banished before you will. Alas, Luther (God rest his wild boar soul) may have been right all along.
Michael Chertoff, our head of Homeland Security has a name that literally means "of the devil" in Russian. He also has a cousin who wrote the infamous "Popular Mechanics" 9/11 cover story that attempted to debunk all the 9/11 theories that run counter to the official consensus.
Very interestingly, this cousin pretended not to know if Michael Chertoff was his uncle, but the author's mother, contacted on the phone, said, "Why, of course Michael is his uncle!"
AFP's Christopher Bollyn, who dug up the information, also alleges that Ben Chertoff's mother was a Mossad agent.
While there is, as yet, no evidence of any working relationship between the two, it is certainly noteworthy that the cousin of the current Homeland Security Chief, who, in his previous incarnation as head of the Justice Department's criminal division was instrumental in the release of obvious Israeli spies before and after 9/11, happens to be behind a high-profile attempt to debunk 9/11 conspiracy theories."
Michael Chertoff also reportedly holds dual U.S. / Isreaeli citizenship:
It's an Unequivocal Historic FACT that in the turn of the 20th Century here in the U.S.A.; that it was the DEMOCRATIC Party, under the leadership of WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN, that was the Political Party with the MOST Born-Again/Fundamentalist/Evangelical Christian Voters.

"The use of electronic voting machines, designed to alter vote counts on command, and without any paper trail to confirm their accuracy, is merely the final step in controlling the masses while, at the same time, keeping them content with the illusion that they are determining their own political destiny." - G Edward Griffin
Why, then, would anyone want to vote? Why, then, would anyone want to join in a campaign?
"Winning an election is part of a larger strategy to recapture our freedom and restore national sovereignty. This cannot be done by putting one man into office, even the White House. A man like Ron Paul, if elected, would be surrounded by collectivist enemies in Congress, in the bureaucracy, in the Pentagon, in the CIA, in the Judiciary, and in the corporate media (to name just a few power centers) who would throw every conceivable roadblock in his way."
"Ultimate victory will come only after inroads have been made into all of these sectors...." - G Edward Griffin

That some white evangelicals support the Democrat Party only proves there are some dumb evangelicals. Their color is irrelevant.
Why should a member of the Body of Christ care, one way or the other, which political party wins? They represent the things of this world and all of them are going to the same destination: only their chosen route is different. Our eyes, if we really believe God, should be fixed on heavenly things, for that's where our citizenship is (2Cor 5:1, Phil 3:20, Phil 1:27, et. al.).
