Democrats cast for faithful to join their fold
"For a Democrat, it's almost uncomfortable to be a person of faith," says Hunt, a two-term Democrat who teaches Sunday school at a Southeast Portland Baptist church. "I don't know what the origins of that are."
I do, it's your complete disregard for Biblical truth, standards of behavior and your close association with the ACLU, the most anti-Christian group in existance. Oh, and the Democrat base absolutely hates Christians.
The party has produced no overt plan yet. But the targets are progressive-leaning Christians and other "voters of faith" who have taken up with Republicans out of a belief that it's the party that cares more about religious issues.
No plans yet. Republicans care more about religious issues than Democrats kind of like how police officers care more about the law than crack dealers.
"Somehow, we've completely forgotten everything Jesus said about poverty, all the things Jesus said about how we spend our money," Hunt says.
Yes you have. Jesus would like us to give money to the poor voluntarily, not at the point of a gun. Hey, that's kind of like what Republicans want!
As for what helps poor people the most, Democrats have been very successful as defining the only solution as a "give them money" solution. I believe that the best way to help the poor, the very best way, is to start by encouraging strong families. Married biological parents is the number way to avoid poverty.
