Christians Who Voted for Obama

The words must read don't begin to do this piece by Dan Phillips justice. Here's just a hint, but I urge you to read every word:

A man comes to attack your wife, or your child. You professed Christians who voted for Obama, you had every reason to know what that man was going to do. And your response was to toss him a knife, and tell him "Have at it, sport; I prayed about this, and I feel good about it. I'll just stand over here being deep and conflicted and nuanced, mocking anyone who tries to stop you, and congratulating myself on my new friends who cheer you on."

Your candidate was charismatic and confident. The people you wanted to accept you and think well of you swarmed after him. He was different, and novel, and exciting.

And when he said that his very first act in office would be to remove all legal restrictions against gassing Jews, and would compel taxpayers to pay for the gassing of Jews in foreign countries? Oh, well. It wasn't as if you would be pulling the lever yourself, right? Besides (you triedn to convince yourself), removing all restrictions on Jew-gassing would actually result in fewer Jews being gassed!

This is what you've done. Obama was evasive and inconsistent about a great many things. Not about this. About this, he was emphatic, and crystal-clear: "first act as President."

No...I'm not. And I'm deadly serious.

Come on, wake up. He's no saint, and no savior, but he's not talking about gassing anyone. Be serious. If this is what you are worried out given everything going on in the world today, you have way too much time on your hands

Obama is the Antichrist.

Obviously the post was not meant to be literal. It's hard to argue that Obama has moved the country away from the foundations of Christianity, and most other religions for that matter. The result will be an increase in abortion as a form of birth control, as well as use of public funds to promote the same. It's already happened with the bills he has signed, executive orders, and the appointments in his HHS cabinet.

But then ... it shouldn't be a surprise because it's precisely what he said he'd do.
