    Dear Friends,

    A few months ago I was asked for my perspective on Obama, I sent out an email with a few points. With the election just around the corner I decided to complete my perspective. Those of you on my e-list have seen some of this before but it's worth repeating...

    First I must say whoever wins the election will have my prayer support. Obama needs to be commended for his accomplishments but I need to explain why I will not be voting for him.

    Many of my friends process their identity through their blackness. I process my identity through Christ. Being a Christian (a Christ follower) means He leads I follow. I can't dictate the terms He does because He is the leader.

    I can't vote black because I am black; I have to vote Christian because that's who I am. Christian first, black second. Neither should anyone from the other ethnic groups vote because of ethnicity. 200 years from now I won't be asked if I was black or white. I will be asked if I knew Jesus and accepted Him as Lord and Savior.

    In an election there are many issues to consider but when a society gets abortion, same-sex marriage, embryonic stem-cell research, human cloning to name a few, wrong economic concerns will soon not matter.

    We need to follow Martin Luther King's words, don't judge someone by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I don't know Obama so all I can go off is his voting record. His voting record earned him the title of the most liberal senator in the US Senate in 2007.

    NATIONAL JOURNAL: Obama: Most Liberal Senator in 2007 (01/31/2008)

    To beat Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton as the most liberal senator, takes some doing. Obama accomplished this feat in 2 short years. I wonder what would happen to America if he had four years to work with.

    There is a reason Planned Parenthood gives him a 100 % rating. There is a reason the homosexual community supports him. There is a reason Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Castro, Hamas etc. love him. There is a reason he said he would nominate liberal judges to the Supreme Court. There is a reason he voted against the infanticide bill. There is a reason he voted No on the constitutional ban of same-sex marriage. There is a reason he voted No on banning partial birth abortion. There is a reason he voted No on confirming Justices Roberts and Alito. These two judges are conservatives and they have since overturned partial birth abortion. The same practice Obama wanted to continue.

    God help him. There is a reason Obama opposed the parental notification law.

    Think about this: You can't give a kid an aspirin without parental notification but that same kid can have an abortion without parental notification. This is insane.

    There is a reason he went to Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years.

    Obama tells us he has good judgment but he sat under Jeremiah Wright teaching for 20 years. Now he is condemning Wright's sermons. I wonder why now?

    Obama said Jeremiah Wright led him to the Lord and discipled him. A disciple is one in training. Jesus told us in Matthew 28:19 - 20 'Go and make disciples of all nations.' This means reproduce yourself. Teach people to think like you, walk like you; talk like you believe what you believe etc.

    The question I have is what did Jeremiah Wright teach him?

    Would you support a White President who went to a church which has tenets that said they have a ...

    1. Commitment to the White Community
    2. Commitment to the White Family
    3. Adherence to the White Work Ethic
    4. Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available to the White Community.
    5. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting White Institutions
    6. Pledge allegiance to all White leadership who espouse and embrace the White Value System
    7. Personal commitment to embracement of the White Value System.

    Would you support a President who went to a church like that?

    Just change the word from white to black and you have the tenets of Obama's former church. If President Bush was a member of a church like this, he would be called a racist. Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton would have been marching outside.

    This kind of church is a racist church. Obama did not wake up after 20 years and just discovered he went to a racist church. The church can't be about race. Jesus did not come for any particular race. He came for the whole world.

    A church can't have a value system based on race. The churches value system has to be based on biblical mandate. It does not matter if itʼs a white church or a black church it's still wrong. Anyone from either race that attends a church like this would never get my vote.

    Obama's former Pastor Jeremiah Wright is a disciple of liberal theologian James Cone, author of the 1970 book A Black Theology of Liberation. Cone once wrote: 'Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him.

    Cone is the man Obama's mentor looks up to. Does Obama believe this?

    So what does all this mean for the nation?

    In the past when the Lord brought someone with the beliefs of Obama to lead a nation it meant one thing - judgment.

    Read 1 Samuel 8 when Israel asked for a king. First God says in 1 Samuel 1:9 'Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will do.'

    Then God says,

    1 Samuel 1:18-22 ' When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, and the LORD will not answer you in that day.' 19 But the people refused to listen to Samuel. 'No!' they said. 'We want a king over us. 20 Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles.' 21 When Samuel heard all that the people said, he repeated it before the LORD. 22 The LORD answered, 'Listen to them and give them a king.'

    Here is what we know for sure.

    God is not schizophrenic

    He would not tell one person to vote for Obama and one to vote for McCain. As the scripture says, a city divided against itself cannot stand, so obviously many people are not hearing from God.

    Maybe I am the one not hearing but I know God does not change and Obama contradicts many things I read in scripture so I doubt it.

    For all my friends who are voting for Obama can you really look God in the face and say; Father based on your word, I am voting for Obama even though I know he will continue the genocidal practice of partial birth abortion. He might have to nominate three or four Supreme Court justices, and I am sure he will be nominating liberal judges who will be making laws that are against you. I also know he will continue to push for homosexual rights, even though you destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for this. I know I can look the other way because of the economy.

    I could not see Jesus agreeing with many of Obama's positions. Finally I have two questions for all my liberal friends.

    Since we know someone's value system has to be placed on the nation,

    1. Whose value system should be placed on the nation.
    2. Who should determine that this is the right value system for the nation?

    Well, well! I wonder if there are some who would call this man racist because he believes there are those who will vote for Obama because he is black?

    No way, I'd call him a good American because he doesn't use race as a criteria. Why would anyone feel different.

    By the way, I know several blacks who will not be voting for Obama. It may not be common in the south but that is normal here. At one time we were the highest per capita of interracial marriages also.

    Now do keep in mind he does choose race second...

    Why would it not be common in the south?

    really?

    Seems he's pretty partial to one and only one race.

    A good question.

    Regional bias perhaps?

    Capro might be right, I have to admit I don't frequent the south so I go by TV. I recall growing up and would see black people hanging from tree's like fruit and the guys in the white sheets would stand on corners soliciting contributions (out in the open). It was also strange they showed up at the debate in MS. Then there is the current reports of people coming right out and saying there is no way they can vote for a black man.

    I could be wrong and that is just a small portion of how southerners feel. If so I apologize to everyone in the south.

    You are wrong and it should be easy to dispell your notions.

    Where are most of the ghettos?

    North and west. Not exactly beacons of racial equality, are they.

    Violent. Deadly, Poor. Filthy. Hungry. Crowded. Gangland rules. Oppressive. Places for people to stay away from. Filled to overflowing with the remnants of welfare slaves created by democrats.

    Where are they? Not in the south my misguided friend.

    I believe you are right, it is so frequent we consider it to be just like any other time of harvest, except for it is year round down here.

    Come on, give me a break.

    You must be at least 60 years old if you remember it that way. I lived in the South from 1961 on and never saw "black people hanging from tree's like fruit and the guys in the white sheets (standing) on corners soliciting contributions."

    The only people bringing race into it are by and large the media and Dems. If Obama was green with purple stripes, white with yellow polka dots, or candy apple red with pin-striping and flames I still wouldn't vote for him based on his Marxist and anti-Constitutional beliefs.

    Neither did he.

    Says he saw it on TV when he was a kid. Doesn't say when. File footage from the bygone days, perhaps.

    His liberal indoctrination started early.

    EXCUSE ME??
    I live in the Atlanta Area and ALMOST EVERY black I know is Voting for Obama and when you ask them why (which I should note that this is there first time VOTING) They say because he's BLACK. That's it the one and ONLY reason. They have Black people out at Wal-Mart and every where registering people to Vote when I walked by they didn't even ask me or any other White if they were EVEN registered.



    So YES I say RACISM is ALIVE and WELL in the USA but it's the BLACKS that are the races ones. I will say there are a FEW that aren't but as for in the South the majority ARE!

    Well, I admitted I am limited to TV but I recall Katrina when they showed blacks living in shotgun houses and were left to basically fin for themselves.

    Again, I could be wrong and I apologize if am.

    You more proved my point than disputed what I said. I don't live in the south and don't find blacks voting for Obama because he's black. Not saying there aren't some but then again, most blacks here are democrats so it'd be hard to tell.

    I joined the military in 1980 and was stationed mostly in Augusta, GA (Ft Gordon). I traveled with a friend who lived in AL and the car broke down in MS. In 1980 I saw a man wearing a white sheet standing on a corner holding a donation bucket. It may not be happening today but I saw it first hand then.

    TV again, right?:rolleyes:

    I've had dealings with some New Orleans evacuees. By and large, if their was ever a group that demonstrated the failure of the democrat welfare state, this is it.

    Some mighty worthless people.

    Their race wasn't holding them back. Their attitude was.

    Even at that, their living conditions were far superior to those of the northern big city ghettos.

    So what?

    I've seen dozens of black people in northern cities standing on streets and corners begging for money from passers by.

    What does either one prove?
