    I wish people would stop saying that about politicians -- hell, about anyone for that matter. There's no way to verify if anyone's saying what they truly believe, since no one knows how to read minds yet. Using this in defense of a candidate is kind of empty.

    Not to mention the fact that I'd be willing to bet that no one in the world of politics tells what they "truly believe," anyway (besides Dr. Ron Paul, of course. :laugh:).

    THANK YOU. That's the point I was actually trying to make in my comparison -- you can call a lot of people "terrorists." The word has almost lost all meaning in the past eight years.

    He's 1/2 African American, not Muslim and do you really think he's got Christ like appeal? If you do, then join Stalkers Anonymous ;)

    Even if you were to believe he is the anti-christ, what are you going to do about it? Vote for McCain and change what has been pre-determined since the beginning of time? There's no reason yet to go running around throwing bibles at people calling obama the beast, at least see if he settles peace between Palestine and Isreal. :D

    I can't tell you how many people I've talked to who still think that Obama is a Muslim. It's a disgusting outright lie that Obama himself has corrected many times and its still out there.

    If Obama's the antichrist, then who's going to lead the army of virgins to fight him? (Revelations 14:4) Where are you going to find that many virgins anymore, anyway?

    ...I say we start with Youtube commenters and work from there.

    as i have said - it shouldn't matter if he is. Religion should be kept out of politics 100%. In the UK the Prime Minister MUST not have any religious background. (that's why Blair became Catholic after he stepped down)

    I mean all this "God save America" crap is just wrong. Why shouldn't they stick just about every other mainly Christian country at the end?


    Religion should be kept out of politics full stop.

    My god relax. I know that. Hell..I HAVE BEEN TO HIS CHURCH MY MAN:laugh: (thread is in GN)
    and have been thrown out of his church by two large men when I tried to take a picture of Rev. Jeremiah Wright's DVD' collection in the lobby. His church seemed like a place of hate, not a place of worship.:ohwell:

    Because to the vast majority of the American public, there are no other Christian countries.

    Hell, to American Baptists (from what I hear), they don't even consider the Vatican to be true Christians, because of the whole Protestant/Catholic thing.

    I agree it's intesting to think of but I don't seriuosly believe hes the Anti Christ. I think his political and racial views are a bit mixed up and I don't agree with him on a bunch of things. Whoever wins this presidential election is gonna go down in hiostory as the worst president anyways because they are already in a zero win situation. You might add to your listed prophecy that the prior leader would be a Christan leader that people lost faith in, sound like someone we know.


    Bob they really threw ya out for taking a picture? sounds like a caring place to me.

    Indeed, protestants consider him to be the antichrist, which is obviously a blatant lie since Im the antichrist, in both meanings tbh:p

    I dont get the simplism that every muslim is a terrorist, or even 'bad' in anyway. If you check the history of christianity trough Europe, I can only have more respect for the Islam if you see what they've done back then.

    The meaning of a terrorist is completely gone. We call soldiers in Iraq fighting VS/Nato terrorists, we call people in Afghanistan fighting VS/Nato terrorists, we call Iran potential terrorists for being a threat vs Israel, we call PLO terrorists because they want their country back, we call people revenging wars by suicide attacks terrorists. And now we've come to the point about any muslim is called a terrorist. If that's the way this is going, I can only welcome terrorists (if the meaning of terrorists is of course as I described above).

    Also, extremist muslims are of course doing nothing good for the muslim picture. But dont forget this is a very big minority. But the ratio of extremists vs religious between muslims and christians, what religion would have the worse ratio? Watch for example 'The Magdalena Sisters'. That will make you go wtf, but it's nothing less than the truth.

    I know it shouldn't matter, but you have to realize that there are many unintelligent people here in the US who see anyone who is a Muslim as a terrorist. It's sad but true. Therefore this matters to me because even though it should hold no sway, the rumor will cost Obama a lot of votes.

    and many black or Muslim people who think all white people are out to get them and harbor racism when none is present. Don't get me wrong there is some of that on both sides but not as much as the Black community would have you believe and they are just as guilty of it aswell. We need to get past that crap and just be people and celebrate how alike we are instead of how different we are.

    What about this stuff? This is popping up every place and is kinda creepy. I don't think B.O would like this. The message is fine it's just a bit much to do this kinda of thing in school with young children. Smacks a bit of indoctrination.

    I know, right?

    Reminded me so much of the documentary "Jesus Camp," where they were teaching kids to pray to a cardboard cutout of George W Bush:

    Nobody said George Bush was running for president. I was merely saying your video reminded me of this one.

    Stop trying to bait others into an argument -- you've been warned before about this.
