White Paper
My micro-bio is still empty!
08:21 PM on 10/25/2012
An Open Letter to Paul Ryan, Richard Mourdock, Eric Cantor, Bob McDonnell, et al

Genesis 2:7..and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

This is from the beginning of the Bible, when God first made man. God breathed HIS breath into man and man became a living being.

It was not until God took that step and made life possible. This biblical verse destroys totally your man-made version of when life begins.

Life DOES NOT begin at conception. Life BEGINS when God breathes life into man.

For this reason, I will support an Obama/Biden ticket next month. As VP Biden stated quite eloquently during the debate, "while he is Catholic and their religion believes that life begins at conception, he refuses to impose his religious beliefs on Christians, Muslims and Jews."

That's as it should be Vice President Biden and I salute you for your total understanding of the separation of church and state.

No politician, absolutely NO politician has the right to impose their religious beliefs upon the American general public.

We must now begin the time to rid our country of these politicians that have sought to bring their religious theologies into the public square.

So, I will definitely vote next month. I will vote for the team that understands their religion is their religion and mine is mine.

Peace.

You have the GOD-given right to believe whatever you like, and when you vote on your beliefs just remember that you are hoping and trying to impose your beliefs on the Nation.

Genesis 2:7 is a parable of the Absolute Truth about creation contained in the Vedic scripture that predates the Bible. If taken literally, every newborn would not be able to live without someone breathing life into their nostrils. Any medical doctor can vouch that this is not how life begins.

"By all the criteria of modern molecular biology, life is present from the moment of conception." Dr. H. Gordon, Chairman, Department of Genetics, Mayo Clinic.

"To accept the fact that after fertilization has taken place a new human has come into being is no longer a matter of taste or opinion, it is plain experimental evidence." Dr. Jerome Lejeune, "Father of Modern Genetics."

To counteract what you just said some scriptures from the Bible, Psalm 139:13-16 ESV / 3 helpful votes

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them". That's interesting what you said about breathing life into Adam and Eve. However, first man and women were not born in a womb(this does not count because abortion is the killing within a body. Also, a lesson to men who think themselves knowledgeable....1 Corinthians 1:20-"Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world"?

i think you may have missed white paper's point... he chooses not to inflict his religion on the nation, which is why he's voting democrat. he honors the separation of church and state, like the president does. religion is a private matter, not a federal or state one. many members of the extremist sect of the gop refuse to acknowledge this and fight tooth-and-nail to make laws out of their interpretation of scripture. it's down-right frightening when you think about it. religious freedom is fading fast.

I respect every one's views but according to the Words of God, there are no SUPER SINS. All fall short of the glory of God. Even those pastors who rage about same sex marriages and homosexuality. "Through love have I drawn then" The love of God is not about a Christian doctrine or any sort of doctrine, but the love of God, in spite of your own sins and in some cases homosexual behavior. Be careful how you condemn and down others. Because you will be judged by measure in which you judger In short, don't judge!!

Not voting is spitting in the face of all the men and women who fought and died for this country and for every patriot that died to make sure you HAVE the right to vote. Not everyone in the world is so fortunate as we.
It doesn't matter who you vote for. Write in a candidate if you choose. But if you don't vote, you shouldn't be given other rights that American citizens enjoy, either.
You also shouldn't have any right to complain about anything the elected POTUS does or says... you didn't vote against him, either.

You pay taxes, so you get the privilege of driving on paved roads and sending your kids to public schools and such. But you shouldn't complain one bit about anything the elected president does or says, you elected to stay silent when you silenced your own vote.

I am better off today than I was four years ago; because President Obama saved the American Auto Industry, when every Republican wanted it destroyed, including Bishop Willard.
12:47 PM on 10/26/2012
I am from the south too and what you just said is a shame to God. This is not a vote for politics or for the people that died. This is a issue between spiritual leaders of America. Back in the 1800s our classrooms were full of the hymns and scriptures of the truth of God. Now there is corruption in our schools and a high rate of sexuality like no other seen. Your putting material needs and benefits/funds above the leading of our country. Our country the United States was not founded on wants or needs it was founded on Jesus Christ himself. To put a man in(Obama) that stands up for homosexuality and abortion is blasphemous. To stand up for a mormon(Romney) it would mean your future children being falsely misled into hell. I stand up for Independent Republican and I am proud to be a Southern American.

My friend, there was a time not too long ago when the mormon church DID NOT allow African Americans through their front doors. Only after the marches to Washington, DC., did the leadership decide via a revelation, according to news reports that blacks were clean enough to be admitted. Lets get to the truth and avoid all the hypocrisy. Don't come with all that hype about your dislike thepresident for his policies because yhey were put in place by another southerner and I am implying that all southerner are bigots. Just those who blame something on one thing and avoid the truth of a matrer.

Sounds like they are turning into a copy of the ultra-orthodox in Israel, wanting to benefit from living in this country without acknowledging the civic responsibilities that come along with those privileges. This kind of withdrawal from daily life will lead them to be more and more narrow and ignorant. Next they will be spitting on little girls who want to go to school.

Good for you. A non-vote is a vote against the system or what it is perpetrating. That is why it is mandatory to vote in communist countries, even though they have only one-party candidates.

In America, one is free to not vote, and the exercise of that freedom reflects on the popularity of the choices for leadership. Unfortunately, such leadership has become intrenched so that it is extremely difficult to enact real change, as can be seen by just how much net beneficial change we achieved with the promise of change from Obama.

That the system is now rigged can also be seen by the results of the revolving door phenomena that pervades our government, and the fact that, for example, a compact between the Republican and Democratic Parties controlled the participation, format, questions, moderators and everything else in the recent presidential debates. American democracy has become oligarchical plutocracy that is headed towards total world oligarchy. The good news is GOD, not any politician, is bringing change to this situation.

Voting is an obligatrion! To not vote is an abdication of responsibility. Imagine a king or queen who said, "I don't care what my ministers are doing. I won't tell them if I agree or disagree with how they are managing the government." That king or queen would be the most irresponsibler ruler imaginable. In a democracy each voting citizen is sharing the sovereignty of the people, so not voting is being like that king or queen who says they can't be bothered to instruct their government ministers how to govern. When we vote every man is a king and every woman is a queen telling our ministers of governement how they should govern. To not vote is just an abdication of our responsibility.

True. It's amazing how much the Religious Right is trying to be like the biblical Pharisees (self righteous; lovers of money; don't care for the poor; etc.). It's almost like they are reading the passages and saying, "OK, this is how we're supposed to act now."

It's sad when those who don't profess knowledge of God show more compassion and God-like attributes than those who claim to be his!

Like they're the only two candidates. I'm voting for Stein. And I'm not christian, I'm just sick of Obama being vilified no matter What his views or policies. But anyone who thinks Romney is a better choice........I really can't think of any reason why Romney would be a better choice. In fact it terrifies me to imagine someone with his blatant disregard for basic human rights to be in charge.

There are more than 2 options on the ballot. There is also the option to "write in" your candidate of choice. As a Christian, I take my faith seriously. I can not in good faith vote for either of the 2 main candidates, so I have chosen to write in my candidate of choice. Some may think I am 'wasting my vote'. I don't think so. Voting one's conscience is never a waste.

Seeing as most people do not follow most of the things that their religion says (Example: Christianity calls for loving thy neighbor and not judging another person's sins; yet nobody seems to want to abide by these rules); I wouldn't hold Mr. Romney to following what his religion says about the color of another person's skin. Maybe he follows the magic underwear thing though (commando doesn't seem like his thing). Judging another person by their religion is pointless; their views are what count the most.

Obama has not made the best choices over the past four years but supporting gay marriage isn't a bad thing. Not supporting somebody because they don't hate the thought of homosexual marriage isn't one of the best choices. It shows bigotry and ignorance. I've been Christian before and there is a lot of bigotry within the religion with the people (not all but a large amount).

Now, not voting for Obama or Romney could be justified by saying that you do not agree with their views on what needs to be done for the country. If enough people vote for the best of the two, things might be a little better for this country. Neither candidate seems to be the best for the job (you may disagree), but your vote could help elect the right leader.
