| Barack Obama & The Election
||[Oct. 29th, 2008|10:16 pm]
Alright, this is a key issue, and I'm going to address this.
Oh yes, Nov. 4th is fast approaching, and some have already voted, some have not.
I know of some people who like Barack Obama, some who don't.
I know some are under the assumption that Barack Obama is a "Christian". Well, I'm here to say he's NOT!
The Bible talks about knowing them by their fruits. What fruits has Obama showed us?
As a Christian, Obama shows me that he is very liberal.
1) He promotes abortion -- whether it be full-on or partial. Abortion is abortion. No questions.
2) And he supports homosexual marriages (per Christian Coalition of America -- link down below)
I would to include the excerpt from this website run by Todd Albertson. And, I'm not making this up, here's the link: http://www.toddalbertson.com/2008/08/15/is-barack-obama-a-christian/
Many of Obama’s beliefs show Christian immaturity. For example, he believes good people (like his grandmother) will be in Heaven regardless of whether they knew Christ or not. This is a nice thought but not good theology (except in some missiological situations which don’t apply here).
Additionally it doesn’t appear that Obama believes in the Trinity, which is one of the basic tenants of Christian thought. Although this is clearly wrong, a number of the early Church’s fathers didn’t either.
While he says he is a Christian (and I believe we need to accept that), Obama’s fruit can be categorized as the promotion of the “social gospel.” Consequently at best, he is a “baby” Christian and does not embrace a Christian worldview.
Last but not least, I can’t support Obama because of his strong belief and evangelization of partial birth abortion. When one can advocate it as strongly as he does, it raises some serious questions as to his views on other moral issues.
There's a few points that I disagree with on that website. Obama is using Christianity because he thinks it will get him into the White House.
Obama is not a Christian -- I strongly believe this.
And besides that, the "Reverand" Jeremiah Wright he hangs around with, is a fake. He's a racist, and promotes and says what God wouldn't want us to do.
Bottom Line: Are you a Christian? Are you voting for Obama? Reconsider your vote.
Obama is DECEIVING people!
Please... Please... please! Do your research before voting. I believe Obama is the wrong choice for America. I don't believe he has any loyalty to this country, nor to it's people. I don't believe he will make good or right choices for this Country, and I don't believe he's a Christian.
His name is Barack Hussein Obama -- if he were not a Muslim, wouldn't he want to change his name?
Here's an article, I'd like to include about Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham:
Stanley Ann Dunham,
Mercer Island High School
Stanley Ann Dunham Obama Soetoro (November 29, 1942 - November 7, 1995), known as Ann Dunham and Stanley Ann Dunham, was an American anthropologist, left-wing social activist, and the mother of Senator Barack Obama. She was born in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, to Stanley and Madelyn Dunham. Her father (who gave his only child his name) was a furniture salesman in downtown Seattle, Washington, and her mother worked for a bank. After a year living in Seattle, her family moved to Mercer Island, Washington, in 1956 so that 13-year old Ann could attend the Mercer Island High School that had just opened. At the school she was on the debate team and graduated in 1960.
Her family moved to Hawaii and Ann attended the University of Hawaii at Manoa, where she studied anthropology. When Ann Dun ham arrived in Hawaii, she was a full fledged radical leftist and practitioner of "critical theory" She also began to engage in miscegenation (interracial rela ionships) as part of her attack on society. Susan Blake, one of her friends has stated she never dated "the crew-cut white boys," She had a world view, even as a young girl. It was embracing the different, rather than that ethnocentric thing of shunning the different. That was where her mind took her. In Hawaii she met Barack Obama, Sr. from Kenya in her Russian language class. Barack Obama, Jr. was born August 4, 1961.
Barack Obama, Sr. left Ann and their son in 1963 to attend Harvard in Boston. Press reports claim Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Sr. were divorced around this time; however, no evidence has yet been presented to show they were ever married. The senior Obama obtained a masters degree in economics at Harvard and returned to Kenya in 1965 where he obtained a position in the Kenyan government. He was killed in an automobile accident in 1982.
Two years later, when her son was five, Dunham married Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian oil manager and practicing Muslim whom she meet at the university. In 1967 they moved to Jakarta, Indonesia. While in Indonesia Ann got a job at the American embassy teaching English.
Barack's half-sister, Maya Soetoro was born in Indonesia. Ann, Obama and his sister Maya moved back to Hawaii. Ann Dunham soon returned toIndonesia with Maya but divorced Soetoro in the late 1970s.
Dunham traveled around the world, pursuing a career in rural development that took her to Ghana, India, Thailand, Indonesia, Nepal and Bangladesh. In 1986 Ann Dunham worked on a developmental project in Pakistan. Later that year Ann and her daughter traveled the Silk Road in China. In 1992 she earned a Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Hawaii. Her dissertation, "Peasant blacksmithing in Indonesia: Surviving and Thriving Against All Odds," was 1067 pages long. She worked for the Ford Foundation and promoted Microlending.
During Obama's campaign for the 2008 presidential election he portrayed his mother as a conservative girl from Kansas; however in reality she was a radical leftist and cultural Marxist. She lived in the Seattle area; spending her teenage years in Seattle's coffee shops with other young radical leftist. Obama claims his mother's family were conservative Methodists or Baptists from Kansas. However his mother's parents were members of a left-wing Unitarian church near Seattle. The church located in Bellevue, Washington was knicknamed "the little red church," because of it's communist leanings.
The school Ann attended, Mercer Island High School, was a hotbed of pro-Marxist radical teachers. John Stenhouse, board member, told the House Un-American Activities Subcommittee that he had been a member of the Communist Party USA and this school has a number of Marxists on it's staff. Two teachers at this school, Val Foubert and Jim Wichterman, both Frankfurt School style Marxists, taught a critical theory curriculum to students which included rejection of societal norms, attacks on Christianity, the traditional family, and assigned readings by Karl Marx. The hallway between Foubert's and Wichterman classrooms was sometimes called "anarchy ally."
Dunham has been described by her friends as "a fellow traveler..." meaning a communist sympathizer.
In an interview, Barack Obama referred to his mother as "the dominant figure in my formative years... The values she taught me continue to be my touchstone when it comes to how I go about the world of politics."
Before she died Ann Dunham wanted to adopt a mixed-race Korean baby fathered by a Black American stationed in South Korea. Ann Dunham died in Hawaii in 1995 of ovarian cancer and uterine cancer.
If Obama gets his "values" from his mother ... imagine his values.
Now I know, McCain is not perfect, and I disagree with his stance on abortion. But I wasn't even going to vote until Sarah Palin came into the picture. They haven't been able to bring up any dirt on her, except for the State Trooper incident, which is small stuff compared to some dirt. Sarah Palin is answer to all pro-life people's prayers! I feel she is legit, and I can see her in the White House, and we need someone championing for the rights of the unborn! And I think she is perfect for the job! She had a mentally challenged son, knowing beforehand of his condition - and still had him anyway. Isn't it terrible that 90% of mentally challenged children are aborted?
I cried when I found that out. I could never abort my child, despite the conditions of how it was conceived. (Yes, even rape.)
I'm done I think for now, I just had to blog about this. I've heard of some "Christians" who are voting for Obama -- please reconsider.
