It's his beliefs, not his skin color

Regarding Larry Jarrett's recent letter:

Contrary to his thinking, South Carolina and Georgia have more savvy than he does. It is not because Barack Obama is part black that people oppose him, it's for his really radical record. Not only his Senate record, which is genocidal where newborn babies are concerned, but also because he does not know how to choose his friends.

There is an old saying, that you know the man by the company he keeps. And just who have Obama's friends been? First is Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who preaches hate for whites and America; he was the Obama family pastor for 20 years.

Second, is William Ayers, the unrepentant bomb-throwing anti-capitalist terrorist, who has been an Obama political ally for years. Recently Ayers met with radical left Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez and has worked with Obama for ACORN, an allegedly corrupt nationwide voter registration group that falsifies registrants...

These issues are only the tip of the iceberg. Until he was 7 years old, Obama was instructed in Muslim beliefs. You do not forget teachings of your formative years. Earlier this year on TV Obama made what would seem to be a Freudian slip, talking of "my Muslim faith." The commentator said, "You mean your Christian faith?" and Obama replied, "My Christian faith."

America is a Christian nation, formed by our ancestors. They would turn over in their graves if they could see the likes of Obama. If someone like Gen. Colin Powell, Condoleeza Rice or even Bill Cosby ran for president, we know America would be their first priority. But Obama, quite frankly, could be the downfall of the United States.

We have enough bad politicians in Congress, like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. These people need to be thrown out, for they do not represent America. And people like Larry Jarrett need to start seeing the light.

Obama was also instructed in

Obama was also instructed in the Roman Catholic faith in Indonesia. Research your facts. America was not formed as a Christian nation.

For some reason I was led to

For some reason I was led to this scripture today: 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 - And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Just going to a Catholic school doesn't mean that you had "instruction" in the Catholic faith.

It's his beliefs for the conservative or Republican voter, it's his color for the rest. It has to be. His socialist message is just too stupid to be believed.

Why do these people keep

Why do these people keep saying that America was formed as a Christian nation? Are they honestly that clueless about the history of this country? Never mind, that last question was strictly rhetorical.

I believe that the black

I believe that the black community in general would rather think that white people do not like Hussein Obama because he is black (only in part) than to believe that white people just do not agree with his values. It is time for the black community to get over the "race" issue-not everything is about race!!!!! Just look at his name-why do we even need to ask if he is Muslim....

I just hope that each qualified voter will be well informed about his candidate's platform and agenda. I think one should be required to pass a brief test regarding the candidate of his choice as well as the up/down issues.

This lady gotta lay off the
Unpublished

This lady gotta lay off the sauce. First, let review a unrepentant nation's ability to address it's history of atrocities to people of color. The country has never officially demostrated remorse for it's horrible and violent behavior, so Ayers is a product of our society and not a political figure. Second, some Muslins are Americans as Gen. Powell stated in his endorsement. (Muslims are the largest religion on earth) Some have died fighting for this woman, to have the freedom to hate his religion. Again, this article is oozing with hate and misinformation which appears constant in these biased and poorly written articles.

This election process has

This election process has brought to mind this statement, "never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups". What is Obama's past experience that will help him fix our economy, no experience. What has his close relationship with a known terrorist, muslim leader, criminals, hate pastor, communist, socialist, etc done to mold him into being a Presidential candidate? He is the most unqualified person ever nominated to be President.

I strongly agree with this

I strongly agree with this article, but the race card will be played to make us look delusional like we just can't have a black president. There are plenty of IMPORTANT issues that whites are worred about besides color.......abortion, gay marriage, etc. Hell, if Alan Keyes ran, I would have voted for him instead of John McCain. The sheriff has already received calls that if Obama doesn't wiln then there will be rioting. That tells you the mindset of those that are voting today that have never voted or cared about voting a day in their life.

that statement by you is 100

that statement by you is 100 % wrong.....you are usually more accurate in your statements, but to say america was not founded as a christian nation with all the references that can be researched is an outright incorrect statement.

Posted by Rozzie2003 on Tue Nov 4, 2008 8:18 AM ......................................................................................................................Does anyone care to challange my argument that Obama is a cult leader and an Obama presidency would be a cult presidency. There's the proof.

Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream, not a nightmare. The misled (I'm being charitable here) are putting MLK, Jr. in alliance with Obama. That must have MLK, Jr. turning over in his grave.

That is true Baroness. MLKjr believed he was on a mission from God with the power of the Spirit. He often spoke of Jesus and his influence on his behavior. I've never heard Obama mention the word God or being inspired by God.

Copper, that Freudian slip he made about his "Muslim" faith? No matter. His 20 years of attendance at Wright's church is enough. I really have no problem with that either. Except that I don't think it makes for a good President of all of us.

bo can't mention or call on his god because he would have to call him allah and that would once again give away one of his lies.....he told the truth for once when he said 'his muslim faith' and then had to backpeddle to cover his [filtered word]

Funny, Justus is passing judgement over other articles that dare to criticize Obama, calling them biased and poorly written. That's the original case of the pot calling the kettle black. Oh dear, was that a racist remark? And, Oamessiah, thanks, I needed a good laugh.
