Technically this is old news, but since Obama is one step away from the presidency, it’s not a bad idea to review this guy’s dismissal of and outright disgust and loathing of Christians in America.
He’s clever and insidious enough not to come out and plainly say that he detests and considers Biblical Christians to be the spawn of Satan, but all one has to do is read his books, review his statements and those of his former spiritual Advisor, to get a pretty clear picture of what he really thinks about ardent biblical Christians.
Last year he revealed on Meet The Press that Democrats do not like Christians and that they will need to “talk” with Christians if they wanted to win elections. It’s apparent that what he meant was to jump on the Christian Left bandwagon, where Christian Socialism would be the bridge between his political Marxism and that of religious duty to appeal to biblical followers.
We should not be deceived. Obama surrounds himself with individuals that have clear disdain for both Whites and Evangelical Christians. From the fiery Hate Whitey sermons from his former Pastor of twenty years Jeremiah Wright, the lauding of nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakahn, to his military advisor Merrill McPeak who has no problem equating Evangelicals to Hamas and Hezbollah, it is proper for us to deeply consider Obama’s associations, and the cleverly couched ‘explanations’ of his statements about Christians.
What Christians MUST consider, is that Obama INSISTS and DECLARES that he is a converted Christian, yet continuously supports policies and ideas that are anathema to both the Christian faith, and America itself. Abortion being just one of many, many conflicts that do not square with any Christian tenets.
Obama does not think that one has to go through Christ to get to the Kingdom of Heaven, that one can take any path he chooses to get there. Considering just these facts, can Obama be trusted with the keys to the White House and safeguarding the very liberties that allow you to worship God the Way Jesus leads you?
Or will Obama, once in office, make official policies to declare your biblical faith a hijacker of “True Christianity” and charge you with “Hate crimes” for refusing to bow the knee to any faith but Christ’s?
History is repleat with men like Obama, who telegraphed their real intentions behind all the fancy rhetortic, and led millions to slaughter once secured in office.
Obama: America is ‘no longer Christian’
Democrat says nation also for Muslims, nonbelievers

JERUSALEM – Some have been taking issue with largely unnoticed comments made last year by Sen. Barack Obama declaring the U.S. is “no longer a Christian nation” but is also a nation of others, including Muslims and nonbelievers.
The comments have been recently recirculating on Internet blogs.
“Whatever we once were, we’re no longer a Christian nation. At least not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, and a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers,” Obama said during a June 2007 speech.
At the speech, Obama also seemingly blasted the “Christian Right” for hijacking religion and using it to divide the nation:
“Somehow, somewhere along the way, faith stopped being used to bring us together and started being used to drive us apart. It got hijacked. Part of it’s because of the so-called leaders of the Christian Right, who’ve been all too eager to exploit what divides us,” he said.
Asked last year to clarify his remarks, Obama repeated them to the Christian Broadcast Network:
“I think that the right might worry a bit more about the dangers of sectarianism. Whatever we once were, we’re no longer just a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers,” Obama wrote in an e-mail to CBN News senior national correspondent David Brody.
“We should acknowledge this and realize that when we’re formulating policies from the state house to the Senate floor to the White House, we’ve got to work to translate our reasoning into values that are accessible to every one of our citizens, not just members of our own faith community,” wrote Obama.
Oregon has a large evangelical Christian community.
Obama did clarify his statement about the “Christian Right.”
“My intention was to contrast the heated partisan rhetoric of a distinct minority of Christian leaders with the vast majority of Evangelical Christians – conservatives included – who believe that hate has no place in our politics.
“When you have pastors and television pundits who appear to explicitly coordinate with one political party; when you’re implying that your fellow Americans are traitors, terrorist sympathizers or akin to the devil himself; then I think you’re attempting to hijack the faith of those who follow you for your own personal or political ends,” wrote Obama.
The Illinois senator’s speech declaring the U.S. “no longer Christian” was met with little fanfare. But it has been getting some recent play.
A television commercial that aired in South Dakota by a group calling itself the Coalition Against Anti-Christian Rhetoric juxtaposes the audio of Obama’s “no longer Christian” statement over images of the presidential candidate dressed in Somali garb and a picture of Obama with his hands rested below his waist while other politicians place their hands over their hearts during the Pledge of Allegiance.
“It’s time for people to take a stand against Barack Hussein Obama,” declares the voiceover on the commercial.
The Gateway Pundit blog took notice of Obama’s speech about the U.S. being a nation also for Muslims and non-believers.
“This won’t play well in the Bible Belt,” commented the blog in a recent posting.
Obama’s campaign has long utilized faith as a central theme. The candidate’s Christianity and his former membership in the controversial Trinity United Church of Christ have been much scrutinized.
His comment about the “Christian Right” echoed similar statements made by Merrill A. McPeak, Obama’s military adviser and national campaign co-chairman.
The Oregonian interviewer asked McPeak whether “there’s an element within Hamas, Hezbollah, that doesn’t want Israel to exist at all and always will be there?”
McPeak responded by comparing the two terror groups to “radical” Oregonians.
“There’s an element in Oregon, you know, that’s always going to be radical in some pernicious way, and likely to clothe it in religious garments, so it makes it harder to attack. So there’s craziness all over the place.”
