1. Wonderful article - thank you! I am also a born again Christian for over
30 years. And yes, I am Democrat to the bone. Most - if not all of my family - think my being a Democrat is akin to being a devil-worshiper.
Seriously, they know me and how conservative I am, and to them I should therefore be a Republican?? In their mind you have to be a Republican to be a Christian. This is how much the Republican party has brain-washed people.

I have tried to explain to them that being a Christian is something I CHOOSE to be. I don't want the government - or anybody else for that matter - trying to make my choices for me. Christianity is not something that can be forced. I, personally, am responsible to God - not my government for me.

The Democratic party gives people the FREEDOM and the responsibility to choose to worship God - or not.
