    i think private organizations are often more efficient than the government.....but they also lack the resources to do it all......in other words they are great, but they dont have enough money and power to cover everything needed

    Well no, because the money is going to the government instead of private organizations.

    He specifically said "no party" should be mentioned. He suggested a guide stating how each candidate voted on issues of religious importance. I cannot even begin to fathom why anybody would be opposed to voters knowing how candidates voted on relevant issues.

    It doesn't matter. You're just making people aware of how specific candidates voted on certain issues. Would you rather people were oblivious to this information?

    You cannot serve both God and money. matthew 6 24

    If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Luke 14:13, 14

    Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience. Mathew 25: 31-46

    it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.

    you have inspired me to create my own neutral and unbiased voter guide to hand out at the church that i occasionally attend......im just going to ask the congregation to vote for the candidate that would follow the aforementioned word of the lord

    can i come to your church this November?

    Who's to say they won't do it? This country survived a very, very long time without social programs. Are you saying that the Federal government is a better administrator of your charitable monies rather than you?

    It doesn't matter. It's their money - not yours. People should not be forced to contribute to a collective till in an effort to fund those causes you find just.

    When it comes to funding the "needy" with my money, I would like to define "needy" myself. If I want to donate to my alma mater vs. give to your bleeding heart cause of the day, I should be able to do just that.

    If your "neutral and unbiased" voter guide consists of the reality of voting positions - feel free.


    When it comes to passages from the bible, I'm more of a Samuel 8 guy.

    Are you of the belief that politicians prioritize collective interests over their own self interest? If so, "I have a bridge to sell you", to borrow a phrase.

    I don't see a "war on women"....but it is a catchy slogan for the uninformed.

    Any other fictional wars we can also win? Why stop at the war on women? Let's win the War on Unicorns too...the War on Tooth Fairies...the War on the Boogeyman...the War on One-legged Albinos...
