Elizabeth Warren's Victory in Massachusetts

- by Mo (Virginia)

One of the things that made me happiest that was Elizabeth Warren's victory in Massachusetts. She will be a true advocate for "gospel politics" (meaning for the poor, the oppressed, the immigrant, the downtrodden). She will be a thorn in the side of the wealthy and privileged.

And, she'll likely be in the Senate for decades to come. Maybe she'll run for President one day.

And the GOP has only their petty selfishness to blame for refusing to approve her appointment to head the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau. Justice was had last night.

Go Elizabeth Go!!

Comments for Elizabeth Warren's Victory in Massachusetts:

Personal Spiritual Salvation -- by mo

Sorry Kelley, you can't bully me into submission.

Wesley, Luke 4:43 is all about the gospel of Jesus Christ. The gospel is about the kingdom of God -- which is about personal spiritual salvation but also about actual physical (and spiritual) transformation of the world we live in. That's what GospelPolitics are all about. The full gospel. Check out the site for more.

On homosexuality, we probably have a difference of opinion about the interpretation of the handful of verses in the bible that address the subject. Please check out the video on this page and let us know your thoughts.


Religious Right -- by Cyndi Mathers

Gospel Politics smells like a wolf in sheep's clothing to me too Kelley. The "Religious Right" and the "Christian Left"? Hmmmm, sounds pretty fishy... why give the right a negative connotation?

You can't twist God's Word to suit your political agenda, buddy. Kelley didn't "bully" anyone. You don't like what she said, so you are victimizing yourself. Way to go.

Why you Demonize Successful People -- by Matt Warhola

I am also curious to the reason of why you demonize successful people... As I read more and more on this site I am becoming convinced that whomever is running this is merely trying to push a liberal agenda rather than truly advocate God's word. It is unequivocally disturbing that you try to sway true Christians with your politically inspired rhetoric.

The Video is Full of Scripture -- by Mo

Hi folks, love you all. Wesley, the video is full of scripture, too much to list here. You'll have to listen or follow the link to the transcript. It's quite lengthy and detailed.

Wesley Mcmillan -- There are also links to many other resources on that page as well. My main point is simply that there are multiple ways to interpret the verses in question. Reasonable Christians can disagree over it. Do you and Cyndi Mathers agree?

Really? So everyone with "sound theology" agrees about the meaning of all scripture?

Marches in Lockstep with AIPAC -- by Michael Pugliese

Max Blumenthal comments: While progressives celebrate Warren for her fight against the big banks and the financial industry's lobbying arm, they have kept silent over the fact that she has enlisted with another powerful lobby that is willing to sabotage America's economic recovery in order to advance its narrow interests.

It is AIPAC, the key arm of the Israel lobby; a group that is openly pushing for a US war on Iran that would likely trigger a global recession, as the renowned economist Nouriel Roubini recently warned. The national security/foreign policy position page on Warren's campaign website reads as though it was cobbled together from AIPAC memos and the website of the Israeli Foreign Ministry by the Democratic Party hacks who are advising her. It is pure boilerplate that suggests she knows about as much about the Middle East as Herman "Uzbeki-beki-stan-stan" Cain, and that she doesn't care.

Warren's statement on Israel consumes far more space than any other foreign policy issue on the page (she makes no mention of China, Latin America, or Africa). To justify what she calls the "unbreakable bond" between the US and Israel, Warren repeats the thoughtless cant about "a natural partnership resting on our mutual commitment to democracy and freedom and on our shared values."

She then declares that the United States must reject any Palestinian plans to pursue statehood outside of negotiations with Israel. While the US can preach to the Palestinians about how and when to demand the end of their 45-year-long military occupation, Warren says the US "cannot dictate the terms" to Israel.

Warren goes on to describe Iran as "a significant threat to the United States," echoing a key talking point of fear-mongering pro-war forces.

She calls for "strong sanctions" and declares that the "United States must take the necessary steps to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon" -- a veiled endorsement of a military strike if Iran crosses the constantly shifting American "red lines."

Perhaps the only option Warren does not endorse or implicitly support is diplomacy. Her foreign policy views are hardly distinguishable from those of her Republican rival, who also marches in lockstep with AIPAC.

Do you think the 10 Commandments are up for debate? -- by Cyndi Mathers

"My main point is simply that there are multiple ways to interpret the verses in question. Reasonable Christians can disagree over it. Do you and Cyndi Mathers agree with that" Ummm, no. This is how people become deceived and twist God's Word for their own agendas.

Do you think the 10 Commandments are up for debate? Or just the parts of the Bible you disagree with? You can't pick and choose pieces of Scripture to interpret in your own way. God said what He meant, and He means what He says. It's right there on the pages. I don't always understand the Bible, and that is when I ask the Holy Spirit to lead me to wisdom and understanding. Lining up God's Word with the world's ways is wrong. Testing the world's ways by the standards of God's Word is right.

Why I am a Liberal -- by Mo

Hi guys, thanks for the comments. I agree with you that we can't pick and choose which scriptures to take seriously. That's exactly why I am a liberal and strong Democrat. Feel free to visit www.gospelpolitics.com to find out why I say scriptures supports liberal politics.

First gay marriage has zero to do with the gospel, it is a distraction from the gospel. But anyway, you give me a verse that you think condemns homosexual marriage and I'll tell you why you are wrong -- based on the bible.
