Dangerous Obama

First a few disclaimers and weasel-words before I thrill some of you, and disappoint some of you with some P-O-L-I-T-I-C-S.

1. Neither John McCain nor Barack Obama is the Messiah. I know that.

2. Politics never saved anyone's soul, never gave anyone peace that passes understanding, and never changed the hearts of people at the deepest level.

3. I have, at times, been accused of being a one-issue voter, because I believe that abortion is a modern-day Holocaust of horrible proportions, and I could never vote for someone who supports the right to, make that murder...the unborn.

4. It's not true at all that I'm a one-issue voter, although "one issue" is more than a LOT of voters in America have. They couldn't even NAME a single issue, but they "like" a certain candidate -- usually the tallest, best looking, most articulate, most charismatic, and so forth (so maybe those ARE their "issues").

Friends, if the shoe doesn't fit, please don't wear it, but the MAJORITY of people I talk to about the upcoming Presidential election are 1) uninformed to the extreme, and 2) don't really CARE that they're uniformed. I can't quite bring myself to think "dumb sheep to the slaughter", but well, I guess I just did.

5. There is not a racist bone in my body. I personally would LOVE to have an African American become President of the United States, IF they were...

--economically Conservative,
--strict constructionist on the Constitution,
--and had the decency to oppose the abortion Holocaust that has taken the lives of over 40 million(!) unborn babies in America.

Barack Obama is just the opposite of those ideals. Even so, I have not the least hatred in my heart towards him. I love him as a person, and sincerely wish the best for him and his family. Apart from politics, of course :)

5. Having said all that, and having mixed feelings about bringing P-O-L-I-T-I-C-S into a Christian Grace blog, I want to link to a little blog called "Dangerous Obama".

Why? Because I think Obama is dangerous on several levels. Yes, dangerous to unborn children, but more than that (see...I'm not a one-issue voter).

6. Since I first became "political" in 1964 at the tender age of 14, I have heard serious people and spin doctors say every four years, "This is the most important election in our lifetime." Yada-yada-yada. I MIGHT have said it myself, but I don't think so. It's a strong statement to make.

But now I make that statement:

I believe this is the most important election in our lifetime.

Barack Obama is not just a Liberal. He's not just a Democrat. He is documentably a Left-Wing radical of the most extreme kind that our country has ever come close to electing (there are always some like that running, but they are up-front and honest about their views, and so they get .0001 % of the vote).

Please take a look at "Dangerous Obama": or

It is sometimes hard to believe that America is seriously considering putting a man in the whitehouse that is against everything American and who's record has been very sympathetic toward the terrorists that hate this nation.

We are about to shoot ourselves in the foot with a political nuclear warhead.

Grace upon grace,

Unbelievable timing. I just this morning sent out an email to most everyone on my address list discussing my same concerns with Barack Obama's extremist (political word for "wrong") views on abortion, then read your blog. On my email, I also mentioned his intent in signing the Freedom of Choice Act, which would, in my understanding, undo hundreds of state and federal laws limiting abortion. It would also undo the ban on taxpayer-funded abortions. I am so disheartened with even many Christians who are supporting this dangerous man.
Thank you for your blog.

This must be from God. Did you check out only look's blog? I have a post on my own blog that is from 1 Sam. chapter 8, and the first verse in chapter 9. Clearly, there is nothing new under the sun. Check it out if you get a chance. Meanwhile, I am going to check the link you provided in the post. Great job, and may the Lord be with you.

I was very disappointed to see that you have gone political, because it detracts from your message. I actually came to your site (as I do often) to get a breathe of fresh air after being inundated with politics from every direction, only to find more of the same. Your message on grace has always been good, but you have just alienated 50% of you potential listeners, and implied that this political message is of equal importance with the message of truth that can usually be found here. Very disappointing.

My only reply, dear reader, is the question I ask repeatedly,

"Where was your voice when the Holocaust of the Unborn was going on?"

I think my readers can take it.

Hopefully for the unborn children's sake, the presidential polls we are reading are no more accurate than your little one on the alienation of 50% of my readers.

In re-reading my response to you it occurred to me that it may have sounded like I didn't appreciate you speaking your mind.

I do appreciate it, very much. My apologies if it seemed otherwise. Thank you.
