    I want to say no, but a lot of people in my church are Democrats.

    Sure.

    Especially considering that in today's political climate 'left wing' is anything to the left of rich people killing poor people for sport.

    Christianity practically requires that you are, although Christians exist with all sorts of political perspectives.

    If you read what Jesus says in the Gospels, you cannot follow his teachings and be right wing. Much of what he said was socialism. Those who espouse right wing views are not followers of Jesus but followers of Paul and the Old Testament and are, therefore, not Christian.

    Don't forget, Jesus' two commandments were to love God and to love your neighbour as yourself. There are, he said, no commandments greater than those (Mark 12). Loving your neighbour as yourself is anathema to the right wing so the right cannot be Christian.

    With a lot of cognitive dissonance.

      Helping hand? You mean liberals stealing from someone else, to “fix” a problem liberals likely created.

    No Left Progressive Ideology is contrary to the teachings of The Bible!

  • Jesus Christ was the ultimate liberal.
