Former Democratic strategist Kirsten Powers on her conversion from atheism to Christianity:

“I think my whole life had centered on Democratic politics, I was very much in that bubble. I worked in the Clinton administration so I had all these friends from there, and then in Democratic politics in New York, so that’s what we sort of bonded over–that was our religion, to a certain extent.”

    If you can willingly work in the administration of a raping serial sexual predator it stands to reason that faith would be on the back burner.

    Once, when I was in Washington DC I asked a staffer to Congressman Mike Rogers (R-MI) if it was frustrating for them that we never seem to win anything legislatively. The response was priceless.”Yes, but you have to realize that for them (Dems) politics is their religion. for us we have families, outside interests and our church, we have a life a apart form what goes on here.” In the words of Pascal, they are trying to fill that God-shaped void in their lives with politics. What a shallow shame for them.

    Yes, the left’s religion is social justice and political correctness.
    at frontpagemag Jamie Glasov interviews David Horowitz and he uses the same phrase..it’s their religion and it is very dark and malicious ruled by demons that turn into controlling monsters!

    To paraphrase Dennis Prager on a few points,
    Leftists derive meaning and purpose from politics. It’s a substitute religion for them. To make sense of the Left you must understand it as a religious construct and in religious terms.

    I dont agree fully. More than a religion, it is a cult.

    The phrase that caught my attention was when asked about her family’s reaction to her becoming a Christian her first words were “I come from a very intellectual…” Being a Christian and being an intellectual are not mutually exclusive, Kirsten. I am glad that you have accepted Christ as your Savior.

    Bitter Clinger is correct. She’s learned little or nothing, judging from what she said, and, dollars to sintered rat turds, she’ll continue to spout uberlib nonsense and vote left.

    In pop parlance, she is still a baby Christian if she thinks that Christianity is compatible with Liberalism or Progressivism

    I think we need to show her a little grace and compassion when you consider where she started from. If she has truly been regenerated then the Spirit will do his work and progressively conform her to the image of Christ. Give her some room to grow. Christians are all progressives, we are just progressing in a different direction!
