If I should fall from grace with God, where no angel can receive me. Ten Commandments:
DEMINT: Well, you can’t be a fiscal conservative and not be a social conservative. A large part of the expansive government is to make up for a dysfunctional society because our culture’s falling apart. The family’s falling apart.
Also pouring money into campaigns around the country was the Susan B. Anthony List, which reported that it spent $11 million. The group, whose primary focus is electing pro-life women, spent $3.4 million on targeting pro-life Democrats who voted for the health care bill, and $2.3 million on electing pro-life women. SBA List argued that the health care bill funded abortion with federal dollars, echoing an argument made by the U.S. Catholic bishops.
In fact, Garlow and Barton went even further, asserting a biblical underpinning for an approach to economics that is probably even further to the Right than many Tea Party activists. Taxation and deficit spending, they said, amount to theft. The estate tax, Barton said, is “absolutely condemned” by the Bible as the “most immoral” of taxes. Jesus, he said, had “teachings” condemning the capital gains tax and minimum wage. This, he declared, was “a great election for biblical values.”
Reformation Day 2010 was hosted by Mike and Cindy Jacobs at Christ for the Nations in Dallas, TX. It was a powerful night of worship and prayer for the elections and the state of our government in the United States. Thank you so much for watching and joining us as we partnered with God on behalf of our nation.
Gingrich, while touting the massive Republican wins in Congress and state legislatures as profoundly historic, also called attention to the million-dollar Religious Right-led campaign that led to the rejection of three marriage equality-supporting Iowa Supreme Court justices in retention elections. “Taking on the judicial class,” said Gingrich, and telling judges that “we are not going to tolerate enforced secularization of our country,” is “one of the most important things we can engage in.”
Gay marriage is tearing society asunder, and the decision to allow it runs afoul of the Constitution, said Chuck Hurley, president of the highly influential Christian organization Iowa Family Policy Center, which is a local affiliate of the Family Research Council. “It’s a degradation of God’s best design for the family,” said Hurley, who was on the tour representing the center’s political action arm.

But she is an ideological lightweight compared to Tea Party darling Michele Bachmann. The Minnesota congresswoman has said America is becoming a ‘nation of slaves’ under the Obama ‘tyranny’. She has accused the gay community of targeting children and once expressed fears that the Obama government would set up re-education camps to brainwash the young into political correctness.
State Question 755 in Oklahoma would place a domestic firewall against Sharia law from taking hold in America. That’s at least what the author of the Question, Representative Rex Duncan, says…. “It is a problem in other states. It’s an emerging, spreading threat, and this is a pre-emptive strike,” said Rep. Duncan. “I believe other states will follow Oklahoma’s lead.”
“Ground zero is hallowed ground to Americans,” Elliott Maynard, a Republican trying to unseat Representative Nick J. Rahall II, a Democrat, in West Virginia’s Third District, said in a typical statement. “Do you think the Muslims would allow a Jewish temple or Christian church to be built in Mecca?”
