Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Why Did the Democratic South Become Republican?

I haven't watched the video, but because the Southern Democrats of old were morally conservative and socially liberal ... supporting things like a living wage and Heath Care. The modern Democrats are so morally liberal ... supporting same sex marriage and abortion on demand ... that the old Southern Democrats were forced to choose between the desire to help the poor and the need to maintain some Biblical morality.

 

 

... Let's see how I did according to the video.

The southern democrats became republican because LBJ signed the civil rights act. He said that he knew that the racists would turn to the GOP (which opposed the civil rights act) and he was right, but he did it because it was the morally right thing to do.

Wasn't the 1964 Civil Rights Act an extension of the Republican Party’s 1957 and 1960 Civil Rights Acts?

 

.... just six Senate Republicans to vote against the bill in 1964, while 21 Senate Democrats opposed it. It passed by an overall vote of 73-27. In the House, 96 Democrats and 34 Republicans voted against the Civil Rights Act, passing with an overall 290-130 vote. While most Democrats in both chambers voted for it, the bulk of the opposition still was from Democrats.

The bill was an extension of the 57 and 60 Civil Rights Acts: http://www.npr.org/2015/02/16/385756...vil-rights-act

 

And it is a good thing that Democrats back then were more bipartisan than today's liberal Dem.

 

He said that he knew that the racists would turn to the GOP (which opposed the civil rights act) and he was right, but he did it because it was the morally right thing to do.

 

Doesn't seem to always be the case: KKK Grand Dragon Endorses Hillary Clinton

 

And given the behavior of the Black Panthers and Black Lives Matter I think you need to rethink the liberal democrat narrative that racist vote GOP.

 

Seems to me that the greatest Liberal Democrat strategy is to fuel racism and then pander to racist.

 

God bless,

William
