16. This is not an anti-Christian rant, and Coe works with Democrats as well.
It is a concern about the tactics used in some cases, and it is a concern about favoritism to those who chose the way of Christianity. It implies it is the only way.

I am quite sure it is helpful to some. I don't like that The Family is behind the movement, plus Chuck Colson.

My concerns are not that I am against Christianity. I am concerned about turning this country into a theocracy while we turn our heads.

I was a Southern Baptist, raised there, so were our kids. We left the church when they called Iraq a holy war.

I don't post bogus facts, but I do have very strong opinions. I am glad for the ones who are helped by getting better living quarters and better treatment....but it should not be based on religion.

There are many good people who are kind and warm-hearted and generous, and they are not Christians.
