   Th e junior Senator from Illinois who seems to have captured the hopes and dreams of the Democrat left in the quest for the Oval Office gave a speech in Iowa. His speech was given to the delegates to the United Church of Christs' conference in Iowa.
This Church was formed in 1957 by the union of the Evangelical And Reformed Church and the Congregational Christian Church. Wikapedia reports that the church has 1.2 million members nationwide. Some notable members are Howard Dean, Gov. Jon Corzine and Andrew Young as well as Obama.
In his opening remarks he said: Doing the Lords work is a tread that runs through our politics since the very beginning."
The tread is a start but the fabric of Christianity is based upon the teaching of Jesus Christ, and no where in the Bible can I find references that are positive statements that support political movements that support same sex marriages and many other liberal axioms that Obama includes in his planks for election to the highest office in the land.
The church members he was talking to sent representatives to the General Synod XXV in Atlanta where 80% of the 884 delegates voted to support same gender marriage recognition by civil authorities. This was the first Church group to support same sex marriage!
This Church also voted at their XVth Synod to support the forcing of Israel to tear down the defensive fence they erected between The West Bank and Israel.Since then they have been anti_Israel and pro-Palestinian on numerous occasions.Obamas own Church in Chicago,Illinois is on record as proposing divestiture of all Israeli holdings and the radical pastor has spoken anti-Israel pronouncements from his pulpit on many occasions.
WE all know most politicians in both parties lie and promise anything to get elected, but when you have policies espoused by a Presidential contender that could well have been written by Karl Marx himself. You have to wonder about the sincerity of anything that person says about religion.Especially a politician that is an avowed supporter of abortion!
Try and find that point of view in the Bible or Talmud. And to all you atheists who are at least 1% of the electorate. Even you understand the words decency,righteousness and standards of justice.
It is not right just because you feel it is right, and I am O.K. and your O.K. doesn't really make any sense in a literal world where words means what they say.
