Why the Dem's Will Never Win the Evangelical Vote

The Democratic party has been courting the evangelical Christian vote for some time now. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have both attempted to use their supposed Christianity as a means of connecting with Christians in their campaigns.

Of course they haven't been able to gain any traction because it is so disingenuous and dishonest that the only sort of Christians they are courting are those just like themselves. Enter Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

Ms. Pelosi has stated on at least two occasions, "To minister to the needs of God's creation is an act of worship." Her most recent recitation of "scripture" included the lesson,

"On this Earth Day, and every day, let us pledge to our children, and our children's children, that they will have clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature."

Bible scholars have been unable to determine what scripture Ms. Pelosi might be referring to. Claude Mariottini, a professor of Old Testament at Northern Baptist Theological Seminary is quoted as saying, "It is not in the Bible," Mariottini said. "There is nothing that even approximates that."

In my years of reading the Bible I have never encountered a passage that could even be misconstrued as saying something remotely similar to what Ms. Pelosi claims to have read in her Bible. Naturally the question arises—where did this come from? Did she manufacture it in an attempt to strong arm Christians into buying into the Democrat’s environmental extremist agenda? Does Ms. Pelosi read her Bible? How often does she give God her own words?

Hillary Clinton's Aversion to the Truth

In case there is any remaining doubt about Hillary Clinton's inability to speak the truth, here is yet another example of her unwillingness to be truthful.

Clinton defended herself by saying, "We have been going back and forth in this campaign of who said what to whom..." This is an accurate statement--there has been much going back and forth between the two candidates. In fact neither Clinton or Obama have dealt with the truth forthrightly and without deceptively molding others words to fit their own agendas.

Yet it is Senator Clinton that has boldly led the charge with her lies and then lying by saying she only "misspoke" or "misheard." We can trust nothing that this woman says. She is as bad as her husband in handling the truth. We must not deceive ourselves into thinking otherwise.
