Thread Name: BS: The Religious Left
Subject: RE: BS: The Religious Left
I believe in God. Period. I justify that belief to nobody under any circumstance. Period. I have read the Bible entire, in three versions over the course of the years. Nothing I read there has changed my mind about God: God exists and has worked some wonders for me personally. In my perception, God brought many very kind and caring people into my life from all over the world. That I know to be fact--for me. Who else does or doesn't believe me? Than matters nowt, IMO.

I do not mean to sound abrasive--it's straight talk, that's all. I do not support 'abortion on demand'. I do not support the death penalty as a general rule. I have never voted right of center in my life, although I have sometimes not voted left of center by marring my ballot. I am not religious in the 'go to church' sense, but I pray each and every night. I agree that women need more protection under the laws of all countries. I do not agree that they should be in a combat zone. I give my seat to older people on the bus (although older people are getting more difficult to find these days, and I hold doors for women even if they don't like it.

I don't know where that would place me on the spectrum of left/right. If you figger it out, let me know. I have always wondered.
