The religious philosophy of the Democrats is rooted in the Talmud of Judaism. The religious philosophy of the Republicans is rooted in the Bible.
Concerning abortion, this is a quote from Judy Rabinowitz published in The Jewish Voice.
"In Jewish law, an unborn fetus is not considered a person, a Nephesh or a soul until it has been born. Religious zealots who have coined the term Pro-life are really Pro-fetus. Their strategy is to band any type of late term abortion by claiming that it constitutes murder."
However, the bible doesn't agree with this statement and says, "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee." Jeremiah 1:5
The creations of God - the worlds that are and the worlds that have been, - who can grasp in the vision of his mind the truth that there never has been a time when there have not been worlds like this, and that there never will be a time when there will not be worlds organized and prepared for intelligent beings to dwell upon?
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
-William Butler Yeats
"...the Book of revelations...being the foundation of the Church in these last days, and a benefit to the world, showing that the keys of the mysteries of the kingdom of our Savior are again entrusted to man; and the riches of eternity within the compass of those who are willing to live by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God - therefore the conference voted that they prize the revelations to be worth to the Church the riches of the whole earth, speaking temporally. The great benefits to the world which result from the Book of Mormon and the revelations, which the Lord has seen fit to His infinite wisdom to grant unto us for our salvation, and for the salvation of all that will believe."
-Joseph Smith TPJS pg. 7-8
"Behold, he comes with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon them, and destroy the wicked, and reprove all the carnal for everything which the sinful and ungodly have done and committed against him...who utter with their mouths unbecoming language against God, and speak harsh things of his glory."
-The Book of Enoch
The pot plant or cannabis sativa, produces the longest and strongest fiber for the making of rope, twine and canvas. Canvas is derived from the word cannabis.
In the nineteenth century, most ships were rigged with rope made from this plant. It was an essential part of commerce, from sewing of clothes, sealing of planks and boards, to the making of the canvas that were used for covered wagons.
However, in our day, evil and designing men have misused this plant as a drug. A drug that dulls the mind, destroys the senses, stunts intellectual development and leads to the use of other more potent and destructive narcotics. Which enslaves the user and destroys their lives.
God has warned us at the beginning of this dispensation of the intent of these evil men that would promote the misuse of this plant along with other harmful substances and has warned us not to take into our bodies such substances.
"Behold, verily, thus saith the Lord unto you: In consequence of evils and designs which do and will exist in the hearts of conspiring men in the last days, I have warned you, and forewarn you, by giving unto you this word of wisdom." D&C 89:4
"I had beheld a vision. I have thought since, that I felt much like Paul, when he made his defense before King Agrippa, and related the account of the vision he had when he saw a light, and heard a voice; but still there were but few who believed him; some said he was dishonest, others said he was mad; and he was ridiculed and reviled. But all this did not destroy the reality of his vision. He had seen a vision, he knew he had, and all the persecution under heaven could not make it otherwise; and though they should persecute him unto death, yet he knew, and would know to his latest breath, that he had both seen a light and heard a voice speaking unto him, and all the world could not make him think or believe otherwise.
So it was with me, I had actually seen a light, and in the midst of that light I saw two Personages, and they did in reality speak to me; and though I was hated and persecuted for saying that I had seen a vision, yet it was true; and while they were persecuting me, reviling me, and speaking all manner of evil against me falsely for so saying, I was led to say in my heart: Why persecute me for telling the truth? I have actually seen a vision; and who am I that I can withstand God, or why does the world think to make me deny what I have actually seen? For I had seen a vision; I knew it, and I knew that God knew it, and I could not deny it, neither dared I do it; at least I knew that by so doing I would offend God, and come under condemnation."
Carl Jung, elucidating upon psychoanalytics, theorizes about archetypes that make up the dream state of our subconscious that causes nightmares and dreams of the dreaming mind. Star Wars is the nightmare manifestation of those archetypes from the subconscious minds of the cryptocracy reflected in film. A conscious regurgitation of their planned future crimes against humanity.
The letters of the Hebrew alphabet have numeric values. Thus they say 'by number a way may be had for the investigation and understanding of everything possible to be known.' A modern equivalent of that statement would be, 'by number a way may be had for the control and manipulation of everyone that is known.' Think of credit scores, social security numbers, GPS tracking coordinates and the Matrix of the world wide web.
Shouldn't, we the people, who are supposed to be free, determine whether or not if we are to be controlled by numbers?
"Be fruitful and multiply," is more than a command, namely a divine work which it is not our prerogative to hinder or ignore. Rather, it is just as necessary as the fact that I am a man, and more necessary than sleeping and waking, eating and drinking. It is a nature and disposition just as innate as the organs involved in it.
Therefore, just as God creates us to be a man or a woman, so he creates us to multiply, not only as a natural function, but as a necessity for the prepetuation of His work on earth. Wherever men try to resist this, it remains irresistible nonetheless and goes its way through fornication, adultery, and secret sins. "Be fruitful and multiply," is a matter of nature and not of choice.

I beheld the city of Nazareth; and in the city of Nazareth I beheld a virgin, and she was exceedingly fair and white.
An angel came down and stood before me. And he said unto me, knowest thou the condescension of God?
Behold, the virgin whom thou seest is the mother of the Son of God, after the manner of the flesh. I beheld the virgin again, bearing a child in her arms. The angel said unto me, Behold, the Lamb of God, yea, even the Son of the Eternal Father!
-1 Nephi 11:13-21
"Almost all people of all eras are hypnotics. Their beliefs are induced beliefs. The proper authorities saw to it that the proper belief should be induced, and people behaved properly."
When the people turn from loving the truth and God their Creator. When people organize themselve in philosophical and political rejection of God. The natural result is spiritual blindness. In addition, God will send upon them "strong delusion" which has the effect of their believing a lie and thinking it is the truth. The only way to be delivered from that strong delusion is through repentance by applying the atoning sacrifice of Christ in their lives.
"Because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie. That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
-2 Thessalonians 2:10-12
Usury, the charging of interest on debt, defrauds mankind. Defraud not your brother: he is your brother, whether he be rich or poor: he is your brother, and the son of God. Will you do wrong to your brother? Will you oppress the son of God, even in the sight of God? God is his Father: He will not leave it unpunished.
The Apostle Paul:
That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.
- 1 Thessalonians 4:6
Behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
To this class also belongs usurers, the most cruel and relentless extortioners, who, by usuries, plunder and destroy the miserable people. Now, whatever is received above the principal, be it money, or anything else that may be purchased or estimated by money, is usury; for it is written thus in Ezekiel: "He hath not lent upon usury, nor taken an increase" (Ez. 18:17): and in Luke our Lord says: "Lend, hoping for nothing thereby" (Luke 6:35). Even amongst the Gentiles this was always considered a most grievous and most odious crime; and hence the question, "What is usury?" which was answered by asking, "What is murder?" For they who lend at usury sell the same thing twice, or sell that which has no existence.
Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest.
- Luke 1:28-32

In the prologue of the Code of Hammurabi, the law code of ancient Babylon, Hammurabi states that he was appointed by the gods of heaven to rule over Babylon. Interestingly, Hammurabi mentions that the god of heaven appointed the god Marduk over "all mankind" and in turn appointed him, who is "the worshipper of the gods" to reign in their behalf over Babylon. The following is a statement made by Hammurabi that is interesting.
"When the lofty Anu, King of the Annunaki [the gods of the high sky] and Enlil, Lord of the Heavens and Earth, he who determines the destiny of the land, committed the rule of all mankind to Marduk...when they pronounced the lofty name of Babylon; when they made it famous among the quarters of the world and in the midst established an everlasting kingdom whose foundations were firm as heaven and earth...at the time, Anu and Enlil called me, Hammurabi, the exalted prince, the worshipper of the gods, to cause justice to prevail in the land, to destroy the wicked and the evil, to prevent the strong from oppressing the weak, ...to enlighten the land and to further the welfare of the people. Hammurabi, the governor named by Enlil, am I, who brought about plenty and abundance."
Ancient Egyptian text on resurrection and reception of the deceased into heaven.
"Arise for me, stand up for me. It is I, I am thy son (Horus). I have come to thee, that I may purify thee, that I may cleanse thee, that I may revivify thee, that I may assemble for thee thy bones, that I may collect for thee thy flesh, that I may assemble for thee thy dismembered limbs, I have smitten for thee him who smote thee; I have avenged thee, on him who did thee evil... For he has appointed thee, to be upon the throne of Re (the Sun). Thou shalt seat thyself upon this throne of Re (the Sun)."

Benzi Gopstein, the outspoken head of Lehava - which has drawn notoriety for its violent assaults on Jewish-Arab assimilation - made the remarks at a panel discussion for Jewish yeshiva students when asked by a fellow panelist if he believed burning down churches in Israel was justified.
He later tried to evade accusations of inciting his followers to fire, saying it was the government's responsibility to carry out what he presented as a religious teaching of the 12th century Jewish philosopher, Maimonides.
“Did the Rambam [Maimonides] rule to destroy [idol worship] or not? Idol worship must be destroyed. It’s simply yes – what’s the question?” Mr Gopstein told the panel.
