Come on Obama!!

After seeing 4 people wearing Barack Obama t shirts in Hammersmith and reading so many good things about Obama's chances today, it is still worth remembering what progressive, forward thinking Americans are up against:

From the BBC: The BBC's Philippa Thomas in Columbus, Ohio, says: In the affluent suburb of Grandview, I spoke to two different grandmothers with two different views. The Democrat said she hadn't voted for years, but that this was different - this was a day to make history. Her friend had phoned her up bright and early and told her: "Get down there now, don't even stop to finish your face!" The Republican lady said to me very emphatically: "I'm here to save this country." She wanted to tell me: "Mr Obama is associated with terrorists. He's not for America." Her husband looked somewhat worried at the turn of phrase and moved towards us - she said: "I don't care. It's the truth!" Would he like to make any comment, I asked. He just smiled and said: "I think she's said it all!"

He is associated with terrorists???? No dear, that's George Washington you're thinking about there... He's not for America??? Of course not, he obviously hates America so much he's put his life on the line to take up one of the world's more dangerous occupations: President of the United States (3 assassinations out of 44 Presidents is a fairly high amount [and one of those Presidents was counted twice...])

From FSTDT: Barack Obama will win by a landslide.

America will lose its national soverignty and become part of the North American Union.

The dollar will be phased out and the Amero will be phased in.

Because of the sinking value of the dollar and the stock market collapse (both of which are being engineered on purpose by the banking elite), the population will embrace the above with open arms.

Obama, considering himself a citizen of the world rather than of the US, with all of his "change the world" rhetoric, will make huge strides towards aglobal government, giving the UN the ability to tax and govern.

There will be a global UN tax on carbon emmissions, even though global warming is a proven scam.

Scientists who dissent against the global warming dogma will be censored, just as scientists who dissent against the evolution dogma are.

It will be illegal to preach against sodomy, effectively making it illegal to be a true Christian.

Godless global socialism will rule the world.

Jesus will come back and yell "surprise" and throw everyone into Hell.

It's a mostly sad story but at least we know it has a happy ending.

Aww.... I can't wait for 4 years time when we can all go "LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE". I really, really can't believe the rubbish these fundamentalist Christians spout out of their potty mouths. They obviously ignore the teachings of the Gospels and just go by all the nasty stuff preached before and after Jesus... CHRISTians. Clue in the name there guys, love thy neighbour, turn the other cheek, etc etc... But no they ignore all that because their hearts are filled with hate and fear and they can't bear to bring themselves to practice what they preach.

Another Fundie: To all those who name the name of Christ who plan to willfully disobey Him by voting for Obama, take warning. Not only is our nation in grave danger, according to the Word of God, so are you ... his election is not about race. It's not about the economy. It's about obeying God.


Be forewarned: If you willfully disobey God on life and marriage because of race or false hope for the economy, you will usher in the kind of change that brought the Soviet Union to collapse.

But the warning goes far beyond that. To those who think that God's grace gives them license to willfully disobey Him without consequences – think again:

Not everyone who says to Me, "Lord, Lord," shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, "Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?" And then I will declare to them, "I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!" (Matthew 7:21-23)

That deals with your eternity.

Erm... if the entire chapter 7 is read it clearly shows this is a tirade against false preachers (Hi there Mr Fundie, he's talking about YOU!) and follows on from one of Jesus' most famous teaching:

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

I'm not a Christian, but sometimes Jesus says some rather intelligent things.
