In response to a confession. Back it up, I never said I felt guilty. I said I'm concerned for country. If Trump dies, it's his own damn fault for ignoring science. Fuck that guy, for real. I also believe he really does have covid. He was air hungry during his Evita performance, exhibiting obvious signs of respiratory distress to the trained eye.

Same. I always thought because I was raised Christian, I should be Republican. I also was under the impression that because my husband was in the military, that meant that I was supposed to be Republican. When I met the other soldiers and their wives, sure there were gung-ho Republicans who were all "God and country" but there were others who Democrats and very progressive as well as atheist. I was actually told by my mom that I SHOULD be Republican because of my husband's career but this was from a woman who had absolutely no idea and was just going off of stereotypes as I once had. It took a lot of soul searching for me to realize that just because I am Christian, doesn't mean I am Republican. In fact, the closer I learned more about my faith, the more I started to lean towards being a Democrat. By the time my husband left the military, not only have I decided that I could no longer align myself with my former views of being an American and a Christian.

Um...I thought Trump was "pro life?" One of the drugs he got in hospital used stem cell research from embryos. Trump is pro-himself. That's all.

And now there's kidnapping plots. isn't this type of homegrown terror how the handmaid's tale started? It really is time to get rid of the Orange One. Hopefully it's not too late.

In response to a confession. You sound like an actual Christian to me. There are a lot of people out there who think it's "Christian" to ignore and deny institutional abuse (not just within Catholicism, and not just sexual abuse, but physical and psychological), or that child marriage is "Christian," or that child-rearing tactics that essentially amount to at least, psychological abuse, sometimes even physical. A lot of people think this is consigned to the history books, but it's still happening. There are some incredibly repressive and backwards people in this country who somehow still have the audacity to claim Jesus is love, while being incredibly hateful towards children. Honestly the majority of people who are so hung up on abortion for religious reasons seem to be more about female control than saving babies. I'm sure there's a few, but the distinct minority.

Oh, and if you are a Christian who supports our current president, who lies, cheats, steals, mocks people, and is an adulterer who never attends church over a lifelong practicing Catholic, please explain your reasoning on how you think Trump is a better Christian?

I am a Christian, and I will never understood how a Christian could support Republicans right now. How can you be so concerned about killing unborn babies but be totally OK with letting people die because they are poor, black, immigrants, etc. I know people who have died because they didn't have insurance, yet the Republicans continually make health insurance harder and harder to get. I know someone whose pregnancy killed her. Republicans by and large support the death penalty. I just don't understand how people can claim to be "pro-life" and then turn a blind eye when people other than babies die. Worse yet are the ones who celebrate some people dying because they think they somehow deserved it.

In response to a confession. Same here. It was drilled into our heads that Republicans were Christian because they cared about the unborn babies. I didn't wake up from that brainwashing until I realized it was a crock of crap and that Democrats are usually the ones who care more about human rights.

Today I had two cousins unfriend me because I fact-checked the memes they’ve been sharing.

It has taken me an embarrassing amount of time to understand that I don't have to vote Republican just because I'm a Christian. That has been drummed into me since I was old enough to read, and now I'm finally starting to branch out and think for myself.
