Show your conservative pride

Well all you conservatives have a store of your own now.

My favorite is "Proud to be from Jesus Land"

Once again claiming they have Jesus and no one else does.

I think that the irony is that most times it is the liberals who declared the red states to be Jesus Land.

Haha! I should get some stuff from there to send to a friend in Canada who keeps laughing at me 'cause I'm stuck down here in Jesusland (he calls it Jesuslandia). Then again...I'm sure as hell not going to send my money to them.

If I had a lot of money to throw around, I'd buy so much shit from this place and give it to my friends as joke gifts.

I want to get that "Conservatives Do it Right" bumper sticker for my dad.

I do think that is weird, although I understand it's their way of mocking us.

And by the way, nice thread.

Yes it is mocking because so many spend so much time and energy claiming Jesus is on their side.

No, and we should never claim that Jesus in on our side. We should be on Jesus' side.

I'm not saying we should ever claim Jesus is on our side, even if some righties make that claim. I do feel that my political leanings are inspired by my faith.

That's fine for I feel the same way, but that's not what you said. You stated that a lot of conservative views are "Bible based" and that liberal views aren't, and that's entirely false.

Conservatives generally smugly claim that their views are "bible based" when in fact they are based on a selective reading of certain passages. Indeed, it would seem that the general thrust of Jesus' message of peace, love, good to the poor, etc. has been completely overlooked and forgotten in favor of Pharasaical moralizing. A very sad quandry indeed.

Please don't fall into the blue state victim mentality.

The label "Jesus Land" was designed as a slur against red state voters (because, apparently, we all voted according to our faith)

It is often repeated that if Group A claims something, then it automatically implies that Group B doesn't have that same thing.

This is bad logic and a victimization game that is an embarrassment to the American society.

Which is more accurate: specific passages or general "thrusts"?

There are many groups, conservative and liberal, who build cases on one single passage. This is destructive.

But I would think that interpretation based on multiple passages across Scripture would not only be acceptable, but encouraged.

I voted according to my faith, my vote was for Kerry, as was the majority of votes of people in my stete.

That is a BIG generalization even with you using the word "generally".

We just had the most Conservative Radio Host here in Boston pass away in the past few months. He happened to be Gay. He was not a religious person in the manner in which you imply. Having been on the republican town committee here when I was a republican, I knew many conservatives, none of whom EVER mention the bible.

It gets kind of old around coming in to what you hope would be a good discussion, but it is continued stereotyping.

Any chance at moving away from this? Anyone?
