The truth was that they were the group that Christ confronted most often since, instead of understanding the spirit of the law, they were self-righteous, attacking anyone who they felt did not measure up to their standards; and, their self-righteous egos became their idol. They thought that they were wise, knowing and understanding much; but they were fools, wrong about everything, ultimately bringing them to where they were responsible for the crucifixion of their Messiah.

That is the way many view todays American fundamental Christians. While preaching love, most of them can turn right around and viciously attack anyone who they don't see as measuring up to their standards, including Christians who do not share their venom. A truly loving Christian is as likely to be attacked by the lot as the homosexuals and adulterers that are regularly on the fundamentalists hit lists. Just remember that the goats in Matthew 25:31-46 all thought that they were worthy, but were wrong. They fell short because they failed to practice love for those that they felt were unworthy. Fundamentalist≠Saved; Fundamentalist is simply a self-applied term that has come to mean "I have it right". It's just another one of those words designed to divide.

Defining life as beginning at conception would define the unborn child as a life. Thereafter the taking of that life would be murder. Murder in our criminal code and constitutional history is punished by the laws of the individual states. The federal government does not dictate the terms of the state murder laws. Some have longer sentences. Some allow for parole, some do not. Some have the death penalty, some do not." - Ron Paul

"Make no mistake: Children are the target of what I call the “sexual anarchy movement.” Whether it’s the movement’s pedophile wing that seeks to literally rape children, or its radical pro-abortion, homosexualist and feminist wings, which seek to rape the minds of children, the larger sexual anarchy movement has a shared goal: Attack, corrupt and destroy God’s design for human sexuality. Children are just collateral damage."

You're a theocrat. Who cares what you think?

I didn't think so, therefore you must be a theocrat?

Of course not. Family enforcing biblical rules inside their house is good (enforcing rules V punishment for breaking them). Government enforcing Mosaic Law? Ignorant.

You advocate such so guess what that makes you?
