The fire is to remind you that if you vote wrong you will BURN IN HELLLLL!

Of course these a-holes are just another power hierarchy who falsely claim to know the word of God.

FYI.

1st Corinthians 3:13-15

"Each man's work will be come evident: for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire and the fire itself will test the quality of each man's work. If any man's work is burned up, he will suffer loss:....if it remains he will receive a reward"

American Catholics pretend to listen to what the priest says and then they go home and do what their conscience tells them. They are Americans first (i.e rugged individualists) and they hate being told what to do or think as much as any American. This ad is ridiculous and will only alienate working class Catholics who will wonder if Mittens is trying to turn them into Mormons---who, being polytheists violate the first commandment.

Evangelicals moved into the world of You tube

the Republican party is USING the Christian Rite as a tool to get votes
they TELL their sheep how to think and vote ....and women are told no contraception for you


I would point out that George Bush was in office for 8 years with a conservative Supreme Court
and abortion still exists

they have no intention of getting rid of it

And they'll move increasingly into a completely independent PRIVATE war-making machine if they have to in order to do that.

Environmental pressures are only going to make that whole drive more intense.

America is in even more danger of becoming a nation of war slaves than it already is.

Xe is basically a private army/security police force that grew out of the billions that Blackwater made off of the War on Iraq, while OUR troops guarded their $100K+ a year contractors.
