> Why I Can ' t Vote For Obama
> By Huntley Brown
> Dear Friends, A few months ago I was asked for my
> perspective on Obama, I sent out an email with a few points.
> With the election just around the corner I decided to
> complete my perspective Those of you on my e-list have seen
> some of this before but it ' s worth repeating...
> First I must say whoever wins the election will have my
> prayer support. Obama needs to be commended for his
> accomplishments but I need to explain why I will not be
> voting for him.
> Many of my friends process their identity through their
> blackness. I process my identity through Christ. Being a
> Christian (a Christ follower) means He leads I follow. I can
> ' t dictate the terms He does because He is the leader.
> I can ' t vote black because I am black; I have to vote
> Christian because that ' s who I am Christian first,
> black second. Neither should anyone from the other ethnic
> groups vote because of ethnicity. 200 years from now I won
> ' t be asked if I was black or white. I will be asked if
> I knew Jesus and accepted Him as Lord and Savior.
> In an election there are many issues to consider but when a
> society gets abortion, same-sex marriage, embryonic
> stem-cell research, human cloning to name a few, wrong
> economic concerns will soon not matter.
> We need to follow Martin Luther King ' s words, don
> ' t judge someone by the color of their skin but by the
> content of their character. I don ' t know Obama so all
> I can go off is his voting record. His voting record earned
> him the title of the most liberal senator in the US Senate
> in 2007.
> NATIONAL JOURNAL: Obama: Most Liberal Senator in 2007
> To beat Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton as the most liberal
> senator, takes some doing. Obama accomplished this feat in 2
> short years. I wonder what would happen to America if he had
> four years to work with.
> There is a reason Planned Parenthood gives him a 100 %
> rating. There is a reason the homosexual community supports
> him. There is a reason Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Castro, Hamas
> etc. love him. There is a reason he said he would nominate
> liberal judges to the Supreme Court. There is a reason he
> voted against the infanticide bill. There is a reason he
> voted No on the constitutional ban of same-sex marriage.
> There is a reason he voted No on banning partial birth
> abortion. There is a reason he voted No on confirming
> Justices Roberts and Alito. These two judges are
> conservatives and they have since overturned partial birth
> abortion. The same practice Obama wanted to continue.
> Let ' s take a look at the practice he wanted to
> The 5 Step Partial Birth Abortion procedures:
> A. Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby
> ' s leg with forceps. (Remember this is a live baby)
> B. The baby ' s leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
> C. The abortionist delivers the baby ' s entire body,
> except for the head.
> D. The abortionist jams scissors into the baby ' s
> skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the hole.
> E. The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is
> inserted. The child ' s brains are sucked out, causing
> the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.
> God help him. There is a reason Obama opposed the parental
> notification law.
> Think about this: You can ' t give a kid an aspirin
> without parental notification but that same kid can have an
> abortion without parental notification. This is insane.
> There is a reason he went to Jeremiah Wright ' s church
> for 20 years.
> Obama tells us he has good judgment but he sat under
> Jeremiah Wright teaching for 20 years. Now he is condemning
> Wright ' s sermons. I wonder why now?
> Obama said Jeremiah Wright led him to the Lord and
> discipled him. A disciple is one in training. Jesus told us
> in Matthew 28:19 - 20 "Go and make disciples of all
> nations." This means reproduce yourself. Teach people
> to think like you, walk like you; talk like you believe what
> you believe etc. The question I have is what did Jeremiah

> Would you support a White President who went to a church

> 2. Commitment to the White Family

> 5. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal

> 6. Pledge allegiance to all White leadership who espouse

> 7. Personal commitment to embracement of the White Value
> Would you support a President who went to a church like

> This kind of church is a racist church. Obama did not wake

> A church can ' t have a value system based on race. The
