Agreed. If Reps would keep their mouth shut about religion in general theyd win more elections.

Romney would probably be farther ahead too.

Agree that religion has no business in politics. . . but the question was asked and he IS right. If you assume there is a God, that he is omniscient and omnipresent and omnipotent AND you get raped AND pregnant, the pregnancy is from God.

It's not politically correct - but neither is saying we need to get government out of the welfare business.

Bottom line - as we've discovered time and time again on GT - no one's "argument" for or against abortion is going to convince anyone of anything. So the question should be, "Do you support abortion?"

"No"

"Thank you, next question."

WHY has no bearing. He is a man of faith and is standing by his convictions. Would it be better if he compromised what he believes????

Agreed.

I'd support republicans if it wasn't for the fact they want to pass christian laws.

It doesn't matter, young republicans like myself will be in charge sooner than later and we can inject a healthy dose of common fing sense into our party.

Patience folks and the moron nut jobs will die off.

All will be well again in due time.

Yeah, I really wish I could have political and fiscal conservative candidates to vote for without also having to accept their "social conservative" stance.

The Democrats are far cleverer.

We never hear about Obama’s Black Liberation Theology.

Pretty radioactive stuff.

What he said. By appeasing the "religious right," the GOP turns off the middle, cold.

It's not republican vs democrat.

It's the idiots like this guy that give all of us a bad name.

I'm tired of all the religious bull**** in politics. Crazy muslims, crazy fing Bible belting morons.

WHERE IS THE COMMON SENSE THESE DAYS?????

I agree....Republicans tend to over play the element of religion when it comes to their core.

I can't wait until we get a real "uniter" like you.

Shockingly, the Republicans ran the roost for 6 years in the 90's and made this country great. Know how?

THEY WORKED TOGETHER!

But keep dividing. It works so well for us.

The Republicans need a coalition to win which includes Evangelicals just like the Democrats need Communists and welfare recipients.

The Democrats would love this to be an election about Abortion; unfortunately for them and us it is about the economy which is tanking again.

It is stupid to talk about social issues.

I'd prefer my politicians to say what they believe so that I can know it...and if they say something stupid...I'll know that too...as for saying what you believe in and then standing up for it, I find that an admirable quality...even when I don't agree with you...

And if the raped girl decides to get an abortion that is also part of gods plan.
And christians can't save other people. It is entirely between the rape victim and god to sort it out.

Here is what seems to bug liberals.

You can tell us that you are going to murder babies, but it is not murder, any more, because you got a Supreme Court rulling that calling it murder for 200 years was wrong, and you seem to be upset that we don't agree with you.

Why is it so important that we believe you? Why do you need that so badly?

You are aware that for more than a thousand years the Church decreed that lie begins at quickening, not at conception, yes?

What makes a position held for 200 years more valid than a position held for 1000+ years?

When the people are trying their best to counter the dividing folks on the left in office, they tend to vote in folks who are set on leaning things back the right way.

Gee, I wonder what might happen if the left decided to work together instead of divide us even more? But the thing is, they won't...................no matter how you try to funny it away.

Well gee Steve, could it be due to the knowledge and understanding of one view versus the simple contrived belief of the other?

Just a guess, ya know?
