I am a Christian. My faith is the most important thing in my life, and I don’t know how I’d cope without it. My God is an awesome God and I love Him with all of my heart and I want to please Him and do His will. There. Now everybody knows what page I’m on and there can be no doubts. Right?
Wrong. Because I am also a Democrat and apparently, those two things are mutually exclusive. I have never voted Republican and I probably never will. I say probably because the person is more important than the party to me, but since most Republican’s don’t seem to hold the same values as I do, I fear it would be hard to find one I agreed enough with to vote for.
I don’t know why Christianity has become known as such a Republican thing. I know plenty of liberal democrats who are also Christians, and I’m sick of being treated as if we are the red-headed step-children of mainstream Christianity. That we are somehow not REAL Christians, or not Christians that you can take seriously. That we are somehow Christian lite.
I am a Democrat. I am a liberal. I love Jesus. I am a feminist. I love my country and I don’t hate men and I love the flag AND I love Jesus and I read the Bible. I am for gay rights. I am green. I am for equality and equal pay for equal work and I go to church on Sundays and I sing in the choir and I am voting for Obama. Oh, and, I love Jesus and believe He was the son of God who died on the cross and rose again three days later to save us from our sins. And I am a Democrat.
And I am proud.
…Can you tell that non-stop election coverage is really starting to get to me? He he he he he…(crazy, tired laughter)
