KC Blogger Talks Faith & Election 2020

Voters who hope in vain to practice their morals in the voting booth haven't had a real choice since November 22, 1963.

And so we turn to this town's most prolific progressive scribe who considers how this vote is playing out from the pulpit and based on the superstitions beliefs of congregations across the nation.

What's religion got to do with the election?

On Tuesday, most American voters will ignore a pile of minor-party candidates and select either Joe Biden or Donald Trump to be president for the next four years. Because of the pandemic, of course, millions, including me, already have made...

Religion has absolutely nothing to do with Politics unless you're a Evangelical or a Catholic. In either of those instances, you're going to burn in Hell for Eternity unless you vote exactly as Reverend Joe-Bob Wayne Dwaine Gimmebucks or Cardinal Stanislaus Grabadic tell you to.

Didn’t the clown Bikl say he would not blog or write anymore?

Too reasons retired or former newsies still blog or write:

1. Hope to regain something they lost
2. Ego
3. Thinking of self-importance in helping others
3. Inflated size of perceived audience
4. Hoping to impress friends
5. Thinking they are contributing

What they don’t realize is the young people - their thinking is much more advanced and anyone over 70 doesn’t have much to add for originality or even content that adds to anything.
Older former writers are great for newsletters for old age homes and maybe their old old old friends that gather at McDonald’s for coffee.

Maybe he should write for the Catholic Key.

They don’t publish anymore so he could just not do anything

Billy, the blind pig, accidentally finds an acorn.

Confucius was concerned over "Names" and the "naming of names".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rectification_of_names

Philosophers have taken it further, in that in actuality we name objects and people for convenience (Which is logical) but are they actually, as we come to believe, represented by the names we as a society give them?

One of my professors in college tossed a match book at me once and said, "What is that?" I said, "A matchbook." He walked over, took it from me and threw it again, in my face and said, "No, it is this."

Billy's preoccupation with metaphors is today's thin patina for his ambition. Political commentary that will - he hopes, someday be taken seriously.

That day, will never come.

I'll tell you what Christianity has to do with the election! You vote for what's right and not for a new Roman empire. You vote to save an unborn child's life not to kill it because momma is too stupid to know what causes pregnancy. You vote for your country and to support the people in your country not to send jobs to other countries for money and power. You stand up against your enemies. You keep law and order. That's just a few things and every American should know this. The left is against this country that has been seen these last four years. If you hate America and God then vote democrat, if you love your country and God and your freedom then vote for Trump. Biden is part of the Obama administration and remember what Obama said...." If things should turn in an ugly direction I will stand with the muslims."

@9:04 misses the most important purpose of "names" in the Modern World.
Scientists gives something a "name" in order to create the self-delusion that they have some understanding of it.

@9:13 spouts the standard Republican tactic - wrap yourself in the Flag, scream while waving a Bible in the air, blow up the Deficit, and steal the Country blind!

Vote Republican so your Grandchildren can work all their lives to pay for the vast amounts of the Country's wealth that the Republicans are pouring into the Wealthy 1%'s (and their own) pockets Today!

^^^^^So true! The backyard rock is more intelligent than 9:13, who is wasting their little rock-given mind.

chuck said...

9:15 NO, that is exactly what I am saying.

Confucius said he would redo, the "naming of names" for that very reason.

Because no Democrats are wealthy you guys!

Okay Chuck, I'm @9:15, and I'll bow to your expertise.
As my only excuse, I don't know what Confucius said, I can't read Wu.
Congratulations on your achievement, I understand it's a very difficult written language.

The Wall Street investment banks support Joe Biden. The abortionists support Joe Biden. The Chi-coms support Joe Biden. The alphabet people support Joe Biden. No Christian can vote for Joe Biden without betraying their nation to the money-changers, the child sacrificers, and the sexually aberrant. A vote for Joe Biden is a betrayal to Lord and creator of all.

Religion doesn't concern me in elections, upholding the Constitution does.

Right now the only candidates I'm supporting if the one NOT being endorsed by the Communist Party USA, Antifa and BLM.

I don’t know who Bill is but Biden is just a dog whistle name for a Karen.

Trumps no Christian - per Jesus Christ and HIS beatitudes which he spoke, in order for followers like us, to ascertain who is a real Christian. There are wheat and weeds, sheep and goats. Real and fake followers, Jesus warned.

Read the beatitudes = Trump has not 1 trait mentioned by Jesus. Not 1.

Oh the "judge not" argument? Sure sinners dont want to be judged so they bring that verse up. its the only Bible verse they know. Christ wants his follower to be like him. He judged many people when he was here. And will judge more on the day of judgement. So yes, Christians may judge someone as right, wrong, good, or evil as Christ did. God gave us a brain and we are to use it. If a Christian tells you that you are a sinner, and God's judgement awaits you one day, you may want to listen. It might be correct. You may be able to reconcile with God. Trump having unprotected sex with a porn star while married is not something a Christian follower filled with the Holy Spirit is going to do. And Trump had many affairs. He is not a true Christian. Its obvious.

It is the height of theological ignorance to believe that the Beatitudes are a list to be judged against so that we know who is and is not Christian. There were not any Christians at the time that Jesus delivered his Sermon on the Mount. How silly can one poster be? 1:42 is showing us the way!

No there were a very few followers of Jesus at the time of the Sermon on the Mount. As it got the sermon written down and it exists to this day.

The beatitudes was to be used in the future. As in now. Not at the time Jesus spoke it. When Christ spoke it he have not died for the sins of the world, the Holy Spirit had not arrived and even his discussions of the judgement day and his crucificition were future events. Christ was forward thinking - what he said had to pertain to the future. Christians are supposed to be Christ like. He judged right and wrong. We need to be able to do that too. He recognized unbelievers and told them they were on the wrong path - we can do it too - in an effective but not rude way. The other choice is to say nothing and let people we know die and go to hell. Thats not very nice. And it goes against the great commission to tell the world of Christs free gift of salvation.
