DEMOCRAT "VALUES"

Ever since the mostly bizarre presidential exit polls signaled the importance of "values" among voters, Democrats have been scrambling to devise a way to work themselves seamlessly into that "demographic."

Conservative Christians advocate free-market and constitutional principles they believe (and history has proven) will do more to eradicate poverty than any other system. That they don't subscribe to the failed strategies of socialism doesn't mean they are less compassionate toward the poor.

The Democratic leadership should understand that it won't endear itself to many Christian voters by rewriting Scripture, embracing relativism, facilitating a culture of death, endorsing homosexuality as a civil right, portraying government-coerced redistributions of other people's money as acts of compassion toward the poor and preaching class warfare notwithstanding the commandment against "coveting."

AMEN.
