Either Democrats are getting desperate, or Harold Ford Jr. has lost his mind.
In case you don’t know, Harold Ford Jr. is the Democrat running to fill the empty seat the will be left by Bill Frist. Frist is Retiring from Congress in order to seek the Presidency. Ford’s opponent is Bob Corker, the Republican nominee for the seat. This weekend, Ford made some statements that in my opinion, were WAY out of line. He stated “Republicans fear the Lord. Democrats fear and love the Lord.”
If Democrats really love the Lord so much, then why does the majority of the party support Homosexual marriage, when the Bible specifically recognizes Homosexual activities as sin? “Likewise also the men, leaving the natural function of the woman, burned in their lust toward one another, men doing what is inappropriate with men, and receiving in themselves the due penalty of their error.” (Rom. 1: 27)
If Democrats really love the Lord so much, then why does the majority of the party support abortion, the destroying of human life? Abortion prevents a child from growing up, and God clearly values Children. Jesus even states that children are the kingdom of heaven twice. “Suffer the little Children unto me, and forbid them not; for such is the kingdom of God.” (Mark 10: 14)
“He called a little child and had him stand among them. And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven.” (Mark 18: 2-4)
If Democrats really love the Lord so much, then why does the majority of the party support Embryonic Stem Cell Research, which destroys Embryos, the foundation of life, when such Embryos could be adopted, and when there are perfectly moral alternatives that produces better results?
see above passages
If Democrats really love the Lord so much, then why do many members of the party support the removal of statues and representations of Gods laws to be removed from all public locations?
If Democrats really love the Lord so much, then why do many members of the party support banning the teaching of the possibility of God’s hand in the creation of the world? Especially when it would be taught in addition to other theories?
Ford shot his mouth off and what he said was not only wrong and rude, but also offensive. I believe both parties love and fear the Lord. He has a duty as a responsible politician to either clarify his remarks, or apologize for them.
