    Yes its about as far removed from Christ as you can get. This has been of some interest to me, how Americans reconcile their perceptions of Christianity to end up in positions on the extreme right. Where is the compassion of the Christ for the women afflicted with a flow of blood for eighteen years? is it lost to them in a deluge of self righteousness? Yes it was unlawful for her to be there but Christ looked beyond the letter of law to its spirit and he found compassion and mercy to be of more value . Where is setting aside of something to give to those who are less fortunate? Buried under a self righteous pile of, ' he who does not work should not eat'.

    They have a kind of Puritan streak running down their spines, anything which falls outwith their narrow perspective is the work of the devil and to be condemned. There is no attempt at understanding, just a narrow lens.

    You could just as easily be talking about American Christian poster galveston75 here although I imagine it's not the likes of him that you have in mind.

    I have no one in particular in mind. I was commenting on the phenomena whereby a country which claims to be predominately Christian and thus to reflect Christian values can so utterly miss or repress or somehow misconstrue the very values from which they take their alleged identity. If you have anything to say without the usual recourse to personalities then please do so, otherwise I would be pleased if you spared me the tedium of your trolling attempts, transparent though they are.

    So a country that shrieks in horror at the mention of God in public schools and is completely dedicated to the genocide of their unborn and rips anything Christian related out of public view is a Christian nation?

    LOL.

    In judgment, God has turned the country over to leftists who will destroy it.

    You are becoming hysterical Whoders. Try to focus on what Christian principles prevent one from feeding the homeless. Are you saying that this is the work of secularists and if the government had been acting on Christian principles they would not have outlawed feeding the homeless.

    What I said was simply a response to what you said about American Christians. It just struck me that your critical comment about "...anything which falls outwith their narrow perspective is the work of the devil and to be condemned. There is no attempt at understanding, just a narrow lens..." fits galveston75 perfectly. I don't need you to agree with me.

    ThinkProgress reports that the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is demanding, in the name of religious freedom, the right to keep underage migrants who have been raped from accessing medical care to prevent them from becoming pregnant. In a letter sent to the Office of Refugee Resettlement, the USCCB, which has received $22 million in federal funds to help set up group shelters to house refugees coming in over the southern border, protested a regulation requiring those who take this money to offer “unimpeded access to emergency medical treatment, crisis intervention services, emergency contraception, and sexually transmitted infections prophylaxis, in accordance with professionally accepted standards of care, where appropriate under medical or mental health professional standards.” The USCCB wants to be able to impede access to this care out of fear that some rape victims who use it might try to avoid having babies by their rapists. ......

    ....... As ThinkProgress notes, the regulation does not require the Catholic agencies to provide emergency contraception, much less abortion, themselves. It just requires that they do not get in the way of refugees who want that care. .......

    are you saying that the law against the homeless in Florida is religiously motivated, if not your text makes no sense.
