    When Presidents were assassinated in the past, there was the initial shock, anger, hurt, loss, and tons of grief, but, NEVER a race war.

    Comments like the following cause me great concern and it should cause every American, born-again or not, to be concerned too: Thomas Stevenson, a carpenter who lives near Atlanta, told the newspaper, "Some idiot out there's going to put a bullet in that silver-tongued devil and then there'll be a race war. There are some in our movement who are preparing for war, [even] praying for it."

    What scares me most, is the belief that there is someone, or a group of someones that are more than likely planning this unspeakable act "right now!" And this should cause the most devout believer to offer non-stop intercession to God to make sure this never happens, because if it happens, the fallout could be more significant and destructive than anything a terrorist group could ever plan and implement against this nation!

    So my brothers and sisters and fellow pastors, regardless of what you think about BHO's run for the Oval Office, as the Body of Christ, we need to intercede in order to assure that this nation does not enter into a state of pure anarchy, destruction, and massive loss of innocent lives which would for sure make the Civil War pale in comparison. The scenario I painted is one that will an effect on each and everyone of us in one way or another...

    So, what I ask my family is this: Is an assassination [of BHO] and race war possible, and if it is, possible, could a terrorist group be behind the planning of this scenario with the hope that it could bring America to her knees?

    The spirit of hate in this nation is so far out-of-control that I doubt anything less than the Second Coming of our Lord can stop the deterioration and direction this nation [and the world] is headed. It looks more-and-more like the end days are at our doorsteps.

    Shalom,

    Pastor Paul :type:

    It is unfortunate that the black community is like a warhead that if handled inappropriately will go off. They question why there are disproportionately more blacks in jails than whites, yet acknowledge that the white man better be careful coming into their neighborhoods. They admit that they are like prisoners in their own homes because of the crime in their part of town. They have an abiding distrust and detest for the white man. If they don't get their way they scream, yell, and protest so loudly, that they have anyone that would be willing to stand and tell them the truth, afraid of the consequences of engaging them. They act as a whole like an unruly child that will stop at nothing to be heard and get his or her way. And your OP plays right into this scenario. God knows any child of God does not want to see anyone assassinated, much less the President of the United States, but your post again warns America and the white man that if anything happens to Obama, there will be a price to be pay. Terrorism is already in our country and practiced every day against reasonable and civilized human beings when they are afraid of what could happen if A or B took place or speak the truth against uncivilized behavior.

    PS. I speak in general terms in referencing the word, "they."

    Sounds more like you were speaking in collectivist terms to me.

    I thought you, among others, would assume such. That is why I was sure to include the PS. :D

    You sure you didn't assume someone would think you were speaking in racial terms? Most folks round here bout's wouldn't know a collectivist if one bit the other on the elbow. :smilewinkgrin:

    The unspeakable assassination of BHO may not be the only catalyst for a race war - him not winning the Democratic nomination would be just as likely to be the catalyst for a race war (claiming disenfranchisement, etc., again). It is very possible the DNC (and Hillary) and the super-delegates realize this so the Democratic Party has painted itself into a corner with Obama.

    The mass media sure has worked overtime to keep the "racial issue" front and center encouraging tension and division.

    You better believe it. If it becomes close or he loses the general election of 2000 will pale in comparison.

    overgeneralization, IMO. We should be careful of such, because our motives may be misunderstood.

    Assassinations have usually been by one or two disgruntled persons, or at most, a conspiracy of a few: Unfortunately, the trauma to the nation and the workings of the news and speculations do little to keep the crisis in perspective.

    I remember when JFK was assassinated, the first thing raised by some news reporters was 'was this a conspiracy by Christian right wingers, Christian protestants, or members of the John Birch Society?' ...... Such is like a nasty rumour which focuses those who have no or little identification with people they consider 'of that/those groups', to suspect them of criminal intent, remove or reduce the credibility of their character and their teachings, or label them as extremist and terrorist. It was the same with MLK' assassination, the public wondered openly with some belief that it could be the credible action of a particular group.... white or black.... but 'extremist'. Fortunately there was a suspect shortly thereafter who seemed to be disconnected from any such connection.

    A threat on any candidate, but particularly BHO, could, in the right circumstances, raise criminal outrage and devastation to areas populated by groups which are easily led by emotions like fear and hate: More devastating, however, is likely to be the martial law which would be imposed upon all citizens with the resulting removal of their rights..... including the right to possess a weapon for the protection of their own family against deadly threat by others. Any occurrance, whether an assassination or a major disaster, is likely to feed into the goals to enforce more controls against the rights of citizens.

    I think any notion of revolution is silly and illogical: While not related directly to the OP: If we were threatened with occupation and removal of our rights and unjust persecution, the best of our weapons, organization and determination would be no match against such enforcement.

    I am not going to judge the hearts of the poster's on this thread.

    However, the topic does appear to have racial undertones at best. Because it has the potential to prey on racial fears and develop into a discussion which lends itself to racism this thread is closed.
