Waukee, Iowa (CNN) - There was no "truce" in Iowa on Monday night.
While the national political debate continues to swirl around the state of the economic recovery, five Republicans with their eyes on the White House spent the evening in a Des Moines suburb pitching themselves to the evangelical Christians who dominate the Hawkeye State's crucial first-in-the-nation caucuses.
The potential candidates made their appeals at a forum sponsored by the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition, the first major Iowa gathering of the 2012 election cycle. The organization seeks to promote "high moral values" and "Christian principles" in public life.
Gingrich? Christian principles and high moral values? As a Christian, that is blasphemous
It is so unfortunate that these fine and morally upstanding evangelical Christians think that they have to worry about a presidential election that would not occur until 2012!
Don't they know, from their Bibles, that the rapture and the day of (final) judgment are about to occur?
I think it's in the month of May, this year.
Let's condemn the adulterous ways of everyone who is not a republican! (and let's look the other way for every republican... guess what: yet ANOTHER republican senator admitted to an extra-marital affair. Can't they keep their own in line?)
Because hate of others "who are not like you or think like you or do what you think is 'right'" is the way to keep religion OUT OF THE WH!!!
The bible thumping (or not) hypocrites.
Great! Having people who open espouse one religion over the others and plan on making that the law of the land... We could be like Iran or have laws like Pakistan. This would do wonders for us and trying to calm fears in the Arab and Muslims worlds.
Once again, the GOP doesn't get it – religion has no place in politics.
none is charismatic and good for the nation.....period...no brain....
These repugs and so call Christians just want to here what these backsliding, muny hungry repugs have to say to make them feel better about themselves, as there bible states that is better fora camel to go through the eye of a needle, than a rich man to enter into heaven, these snake in the grass want to profess all this stuff that makes the people feel good, but their real intentions, is to make money, no matter if it's over seas by pushing more American jobs abroad, or shaking down America's programs that keeps America surviving, their slick tongue is tantalizing to these closed minded people, as they sell their souls and self interest to Satan himself, "MONEY!"
God, god, god. When are we going to keep our god and politic separately?
