I don't mean just "law abiders." (You and I both know there are not many of those, especially among those who claim to be "law abiders.")    I mean mainly those who hide behind an alleged relationship to Jesus Christ that does not exist.  I think the group that is commonly referred to as the "religious right" in the media is crawling with people like that. 
The media is not a good reference regarding anything related to Christianity.  They are about as ignorant to the word of God as they come and hostile.
You are going to have to give me examples because I am not following.  If you mean self-proclaiming Christians who never read their Bible, never pray but profess to be a Christian, say because they were baptized as a child?

I mean people who seem to believe that when Jesus returns, he's gonna be wearing a blue suit, white shirt, and red tie and sporting a Rolex watch and the first thing He's gonna do is register as a Republican.  I mean people who allegedly look at their WWJD bracelet and decide, with respect to the borders, they should don cammies, grab their assault rifles, and head south.  I mean people who refer to other human beings as "sand monkies."

You know some, too.  Maybe more than I do.

Is that intended to be an insult towards your brother.    I have not seen any nor do I know any but you seem to think I do based on your verbiage.  Let's act like you and I are on the same team because if not, one of us is in eternal trouble my friend.  If you think my soul is in peril then by all means let me know, you have a duty, no a command to do so.

You have inferred where I have not implied.

Then please educate me what is a right wing Christian in CONTEXT to the teachings of Jesus?  The Bible says there is no wiggle room so I am failing to understand what a right wing Christian is.  To me you are either a follower of Christ or you are not, no right or left but I may have missed something in my Bible studies so please enlighten em.   Undecided



Right wing politics is characterised by a lack of empathy and compassion, whereas Christianity is rather the opposite.


I’ve never understood how anyone can perform the mental gymnastics necessary to convince themselves that they are both.

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.

It's called schizophrenia.

I think the definition and the reality is as vast as east is to west.  It just seems to help us categorize people we do not know.

No, genuinely- the essence of the Right in politics is to leave the weak behind, to gather unto oneself and to erect fences.

I’m sure you will recognise that.


Christianity is (up to a point) about kindness, sharing and compassion.

Well, politics plays no part in our walk, so to say there is a right or left leaning Christian is a fallacy contrary to the teachings of Jesus.  You are either a follower or you are not.  There simply is no left or right.  Now to the world that is how they see everything, let or right regarding politics.  I am not sure you realize this but there are Dems and Republican who are also Christians.  Also, categorizing someone is a weakness in that you can not easily put anyone in a box.  Everyone is unique with their views and their opinion, so your generalization is a failure at best...
