Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: A real Christian would not run for a socialist Democratic party.

Your comment is ... wrong. And this comes from somebody who is both a Christian and a libertarian. I believe in private property and individual responsibility. But not because I'm a Christian. Because I believe that the government just causes unnecessary interference in people's lives. Also, where exactly did you get no unions from that parable? If America were to base all of its laws on making people abide by Christianity then it would have to be socialist, since charity is such a huge part of Christianity. And socialism isn't supposed to be about giving people who don't work the same benefits as those who do. It's about giving people who work in coal mines the same benefits as those who work in offices.
