"We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God." James Madison

How Christian is Barack Obama?

You Tube, in its infinite wisdom has elected to remove this video, hindering our ability to aquire information regarding a potential presidential candidate from the democratic party, and making it more difficult to make an informed decision in November 2008. Thank you You Tube for your commitment to patriotism and free speech... NOT!

So Barack Obama claims to be Christian. Here is an example of the "Christian Teaching" he has sat under for 20 years:

“We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye, the chickens have come home to roost.” Rev. Wright said in a sermon on Sept. 16, 2001.

Now most of you know I am an Evangelical Christian. I grew up (questionable) attending church every Sunday morning, Sunday evening, and Wednesday evening. I wandered away for some ten years in my early 30’s, attempting to live my life on my terms, only to discover that when one lives life for oneself, one becomes narcissistic and ultimately miserable.

Church has played a significant role in my personal development, and listening to men and women speak from an authoritative position has influenced my life both directly and indirectly. To assume that Mr. Obama could listen to this anti-ameriKKKan rhetoric on a weekly basis and not be affected by it is absurd and foolhardy.

Rev. Jeremiah Wright is a hater. He exudes and perpetuates hatred toward America for the sake of his own narcissism, and has in a Jim Jones style, convinced his congregation that hatred is the normal way to live one’s life. Never in my 46+ years of living did I ever sit in and listen to such anti-Christian comments at any church or Christian event I attended, from Tennessee to Okinawa, JA., as this is not the Christianity proclaimed in the bible, but another man made version of a broken philosophy.

And we don’t think his back ground will affect his executive decision making? God help us if he’s elected POTUS.
