    George Mitrovich

    I'M A FAN OF THIS BLOGGER (get email alerts) George Mitrovich is president of two leading American public forums, The City Club of San Diego and The Denver Forum. In addition, he chairs for the Boston Red Sox The Great Fenway Park Writers Series, as well as chairing the team’s annual birthday tribute to Jackie Robinson. He led the two and one-half year effort to obtain posthumously for Mr. Robinson the Congressional Gold Medal -– the nation’s highest civilian award.

    A writer and contributor to leading North American newspapers, he is also a public speaker of note, with four of his speeches have been published in Vital Speeches of the Day –- a distinction held by few Americans.

    "John McCain and Barack Obama are the nominees of the Republican and Democratic parties for president of the United States. One has publicly acknowledged Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.

    The one who has not is John McCain."

    He is right I have not heard John McCain confess Jesus as Lord, and I do know he has not been baptized into the baptist church he visits.

    He is correct a lot of the media and population at large do not know the difference between fundamentalism and evangelical, he sort of paints the picture for the new evangelical that is taking over power from the old elite.

    Just because you haven't heard it and Arriana Huffington hasn't heard it doesn't mean too much. Really, on the left blogs you will read anything, most of which is not true.

    We really don't know who has or hasn't come to the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation. I have a full time job keeping myself where God wants me to be to decide who is or isn't right with God.

    I am not voting for McCain or Obama for that matter, but you are correct, you can't tell who has and hasn't confessed that Jesus is in their life....

    Arianna did not write this and the Huffington Post


    I think you are well aware that the Huffington Post is the Internet Newspaper of our day and that it has conservative blogs and commentators as well, I would put her in the middle of the mainstream but you are welcome to your view. but she did not write this blog for your information.

    This story was not even worthy of repeating.

    What is this about McCain not being baptised into "the church he is visiting"?

    I was baptised 36 years ago in a church I was raised in. I live in another state now and have not been "baptised into" any other church since. Certainly not one that I am 'visiting" as you said.

    I got baptised once.

    Do you advocate getting baptised in every church you attend, or visit?

    Many Baptist churches require baptism by immersion for church membership. Since McCain was previously an Episcopalian it's reasonable to assume that he was sprinkled as a child.

    The Baptist church that I attend will accept biblical baptism from any denomination, as long as it was not for salvation, or not sprinkled or poured.
    And of course, it has to have followed a profession of faith.

    McCain Keeps His Faith to Himself, at Church and in Campaign
    By Hans Nichols
    http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601070&sid=aHH18X6Vsqzk&refer=home

    April 25 (Bloomberg) -- John McCain's pastor ends his sermons with an altar call, beckoning any stirred souls to the front of his 3,500-seat``worship center'' to publicly dedicate their lives to Jesus Christ. In McCain's 15 years of attending Dan Yeary's North Phoenix Baptist Church, the pastor says, the Arizona senator has never made that walk.

    ``All I can tell you is that John and I have had some interesting conversations'' about faith, said Yeary, a 69-year- old Texan. ``And we'll have more.''
    McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, is more private about the role faith plays in his life than either Democratic candidate or the president he is running to replace.

    While McCain, 71, describes Yeary as his family pastor, Yeary said the senator -- who was christened an Episcopalian -- isn't a full member of his church because he has never undergone the adult baptism that membership requires.

    When politicians use their faith, it always makes them look silly. Good move, on his part.

    But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

    Matthew 6:6

    Back to my point of a few weeks ago, why do we focus on this kind of meaningless twaddle when there are real issues to talk about. The OP is simply evidence that both sides use the same cheap tactics.

    Excellent point. Both parties need to be dismantled and start over, parties free of lobbyests and corporate thugs.

    True.

    And it doesn't mean anything that Obama did.

    He has amply demostrated that he is not a Christian and doesn't really have a clue what it takes to be one.

    He is his own God and judge.

    Did you read my response? McCain was Episcopalian. They don't immerse, they sprinkle. Would your church accept infant baptism for membership?

    Did JM's Pastor really discuss this with the press??? Wow, what problems that church has. If Senator McCain has not made that walk I pray for him and I pray for him always.

    I pray that Senator Obama understands what salvation is about and that it is not a political event for votes. I pray that he will get right with God's will. Millions of babies could be saved from legal murder if this would happen. But, sadly, he has not shown any intention of doing anything because it would be the Christian thing to do. I pray for him too.
