    Every recent president with the exception of Ronald Wilson Reagan and James Earl Carter has used their full name when taking oath of office.

    Will Obama take oath using his full name?

    Why should he deny his true faith now that he can dispense with the lies? Yes, he will use his middle name.

    Who really cares whether Mr. Obama uses his full name or even what his full name is?

    Some will call him whatever they want anyway.

    I get called an atheist everyday in one person's posts. Get's tiresome, but what can one do about it. Maybe it's cause I use Jim when my real name is James.......

    Cheers,

    Jim

    Why does it matter...if his middle name was Smith, Patel, Hussein, McGrath, or Lopez?

    The man's just using his middle name.

    Kind of shame on him if he does and shame on him if he doesn't.

    If he does, some will say he stopped denying his true faith.

    If he doesn't, some will say he is hiding his true faith.

    He didn't pick his name when his parents named him did he? Did I miss something? I certainly didn't choose to be called Bitsy.

    I don't care one way or another, but he will be one of the most powerFUL people in America and I certainly hope he uses the name he prefers during the ceremony.

    I think Obama said it best at the Alfred E. Smith dinner, "whoever gave me my middle name obviously didn't expect me to run for president".

    He also said, “My middle name is actually Steve,” he said. “Barack Steve Obama.”

    Quite true. And if I called him on this site what I often call him on others, the post would be deleted.

    Nope; can't say so. But with separation of church and state-- 'rendering unto Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's'-- who should care? Yes, meaning if that principle is true, why should God care? Or does he want involvement in our politics after all?

    Well, Alcott, at least you are honest and forthright about admitting that you are intentionally sinning. I'll give you that.

    If she understands things so well, why does she keep labelling me as an atheist?

    You thought it was that good and I couldn't even remember what I said. As much as we have opposed each other on mainly political views, I just wanted to thank you for this comment.
    I had to go look for it, is this what you mean?

    donnA=
    I still believe this, even if I couldn't remember the wording.
    There is no part of our lives as christians that is not to have Godly influences. Even voting.
    Otherwise, if we divorce ourselves from scripture in secular voting, then we have given permission to divorce ourselves from anything else secular, and have just created an excuse to do whatever we want, outside of church, and family.
    We deal with the secular world, business, utilities, shopping (we all buy food and clothes), and even voting/ politics. Shouldn't we be influenced by scripture in these areas also? I think so. Which to me means, when I vote, first is the candidate christian, does he vote to represent christians morals, which means I am not voting for a muslim, if he doesn't vote to represent christian morals, i.e. abortion issue, homos*xual union/marriage then I will not vote for him. Things like money and other worldly things are secondary. He must pass the first ones before I can consider him.
    We did not vote for obama, because he only makes the claim of christianity, but doesn't know what christianity is, thinks many roads lead to God, has no understanidng of repentance and salvation (even basic like a child might have), and has not voted with christian morals, actually has shunned christian morals and values. I see him not changing this in the white house, especially since he have said what he wil do as president, and it in no way prepresents christians morals.(abortion, homos*xual union/marriage).
