"So, is the consensus of this forum that:"
Hmm, methinks that the course of these threads is that there is no such consensus!
"1. To be a good Orthodox (or Catholic) Christian, to hold a worldview consistent with those churches, one must oppose the war, and by extension the President?"
I don't think anyone has said that. I think that some of us are saying is that these things all have to be taken into account, just as the prolife issue is, but that church teaching does not mandate one candidate over another, basically outlawing supporting certain candidates. There are others, by contrast, who are saying that to be a good Orthodox or Catholic Christian one *cannot* cast a vote for a candidate who is openly pro-choice, and that therefore one *cannot*, under penalty of sin, cast a vote for Senator Kerry.
"2. One issue (the war) outweighs all the negative things about Kerry-after all, almost everyone here is a social conservative, and disagrees strongly with JFK on these issues."
Well, some of us also disagree with the current administration about the death penalty, tax policy and other issues. However, what makes one support one or another candidate is based on a variety of issues taken together, not one or two litmus test issues. And I am not a social liberal, I just think that the death penalty is generally immoral in a civilized society such as ours and that cutting tax rates while raising spending is, at best, misguided (as much as I personally may benefit from the reduced tax rates).
"3. Bush is bad because of high-church snobbery-he's not an overly intellectual Orthodox, Anglican, or Catholic who getts bogged down in these silly Internet debates, and can claim to repesent historic Christendom?"
Ah, well at least you are equal opportunity in attacking me, Jennifer and Keble in one breath! I think each of us, however, how our own reasons for thinking like we do, and it's pretty much impossible to loop us all together as you have just tried to do.
"Liberal Catholics, for example, complain that abortion shouldn't be the sole issue in voting for political candidates."
If you're referring to Jennifer, she certainly doesn't *seem* like a "liberal Catholic" to me. I knew many of these when I was a Catholic myself, and she doesn't appear to me to be one of them, but again this goes to the issue of "labelling", as Jennifer rightly pointed out several posts ago.
"One person even went so far as to imply that one pro-Bush supporter even still had a Protestant mindset, presumabely because he's a pro-Bush supporter."
No, that wasn't it. You obviously didn't get it.
Go back and re-read Jennifer's posts about that poster, and you will see that this is not the basis for her observations about him.
