My Reasons for Not Supporting Obama…

Have nothing to do with these “facts”:

  • That he is a closet Muslim
  • That he refuses to Pledge Allegiance to the flag
  • That he was educated at a radical Wahabbist madrassa
  • That he took the oath of office on a Koran instead of a Bible
None of the above are “facts”. Obama is not a Muslim. He claims to be a Christian, and he attends a United Church of Christ congregation. UCC churches are normally liberal in their theology. Both his father – a Kenyan – and his step-father – an Indonesian – were raised as Muslims, but there has ever been any evidence that either of them were committed Muslims, much less radical adherents to Islam. While living in Indonesia, from ages 6 -11, Obama did attend a Muslim school. He also attended a Catholic school. I am sure that at his Muslim school that Obama studied the Koran and said Muslim prayers during school hours. I’m also certain that at his Catholic school he studied the catechism and prayed the rosary. Obama does recite the Pledge of Allegiance and he indeed took his oath of office on a Bible; his own personal Bible in fact.

If you are still unconvinced and believe that Obama is just a bald face liar, then you may want to check out the following links:
I don’t support Obama because he is a liberal politician. In 2007 the National Journal ranked Senator Obama as the year’s most liberal senator. I do not support Obama because he supports abortion rights, and would not support the “Born-Alive Infants Protection Act”; a bill to protect the lives of babies who, having survived an attempted abortion, are born alive. I cannot support Obama because the next President may nominate as many as three Supreme Court Justices. During his brief tenure as Senator Obama voted against John Roberts and Samuel Alito; both men are conservative judges. I cannot support Obama because he has made statements like this:

We need somebody who’s got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it’s like to be a young teenage mom, the empathy to understand what it’s like to be poor or African-American or gay or disabled or old–and that’s the criterion by which I’ll be selecting my judges.

That is according to this Weekly Standard article by Edward Whelan. Any person who would select federal judges based on Obama’s stated criteria is foolish. Judges need to understand the law and rule accordingly, anything else is a recipe for judicial activism.

These are the reasons I cannot and will not support Barack Hussein Obama. It grieves me when people, especially Christians, fall for the baseless and moronic “facts” that I listed at the beginning of this post. If you want to provide people with reasons for not supporting Obama (or any candidate for that matter) present substantive, verifiable, well-reasoned objections.

That means delete the chain emails and do some real digging on your own. This is the information age, which means you have to cull through a lot of junk, but it also means that there is zero excuse for not being properly informed.

    Very good post! I’ve become very tired of these crazy forwarded emails about Obama. There are enough substantial policy-related issues to hit him on without having to go all conspiracy-theory. He’s an old-school tax-and-spend liberal who talks pretty.I only hope his “pied piper” routine will end before November…

    Sure, great reasons for not supporting Barack Hussein Obama. Who cares why people don’t vote for him? The important thing is that they don’t vote for him.

    Thanks for the comment Philip, and I’m with you 100%.
