If I wanted to give the impression that Democrats are righteous I would have titled the book "If You Go to Church on Sunday you MUST Vote for Barack Obama on Tuesday."
This was not the intent of the book. Neither party is righteous.
At the beginning of 2008, I assumed I was going to vote for the Republican ticket as I was properly raised to do. By the end of 2008 I voted for Barack Obama.
In January of 2008 I was ignorant. By November of 2008 I had been enlightened both politically and spiritually.
There seems to be two Bibles out there. Weirdly enough they say the exact same thing. One group of people picks out things that they use to justify their own hate and judgment. It makes them feel better about themselves. It makes them feel better about their own insecurities and weaknesses.
Another group of people looks to the message of Christ and sees nothing but love.
I see love. Hate is exhausting to me.
From the Back of the Book;
"Author Dan Bimrose .... takes you down the winding path that led a Republican who spent his formative years with Ronald Reagan as both his hero and his President, to vote for Barack Obama.
It was only once he considered voting for a Democrat for President that he fully appreciated the coordinated efforts of the Christian Right and the Republican Party to label ANY Democratic Presidential candidate as unpatriotic and evil.
Dan found the attacks to be baseless, deceitful and extraordinarily vicious. These attacks are a remarkably effective tool used by the Republican Party as a method to persuade people to vote against their own best interest.
While Republicans use fear and lies to influence a base that votes with emotion and not intellect, the future of our country and the American dream is in peril.
This book makes every effort to demonstrate the absurdity of Republican claims of righteousness. Dan does this by citing scripture and discussing how it applies to the key policy issues important to both parties.
Ultimately Dan suggests that Republicans should save their righteous indignation for someone else if they are going to champion polices that will necessitate the hungry to stay hungry and the sick to stay sick.
Central to his argument is the declaration that we have a United States Christian population who has forsaken the teachings of Jesus Christ and who has instead expressed devotion to ideals found only in dogma and doctrine."
