I do not trust him or his wife Michelle Obama.
Mr. and Mrs. Obama are unashamedly Christian! They are members of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Illinois...a member-Congregation of The United Church of Christ, of which I am a proud Pastor...a denomination formed in 1957 by the merger of the Congregational-Christian Churches, dating back in our country to the Pilgrims and Puritans who landed at Plymouth Rock, and to the (German) Evangelical and (German) Reformed Church, dating back to the arrival in this country of German and Swiss immigrants, starting in the late 1600's.

Oh, and, like, do you get all your information from "fwd/fwd/fwd" e-mails? Gheesh!!!!!!!!!
..thank yuh...thank yuh verruh much! ;)
Hard to explain where those kids came from otherwise.
this giy says obama scares him what about MCCAIN INSANE he scares me alot more than obama we republicans can relate to obama he speaks from the heart we republicans do not have the answer its time to band with the democrats to get obama elected im am a white guy and i think it would be good to have a black man in the white house color does not matter to me , the bush adm has messed this country up and if mccain gets elected hes is just another bush, we republicans need to stand for change we need to support the democrats and get obama elected in 2008
I agree with everything you're saying, angelo3718, except I myself am not writing a blank check to democrats. As a Republican I'm committed to voting for Obama for many of the reasons you listed. But if he doesn't get the nomination I'm voting Republican.
Whoa! Let’s bring things up a notch.
I think we should be tolerant of the fact that Mr. Scrabble finds Senator Obama’s genitalia interesting. Strange, but to each his own. His comments would make a nice intellectual bumper sticker or t-shirt for the opposition.
But in my experience, people like this have an undying need to display their ignorance whenever possible, and we shouldn’t cater to it. This has been a respectful site up to this point, and I think we would be better served to keep it that way.
Mr. Scrabble, thank you for your obviously well thought out and thoroughly researched positions, very enlightening.
TO start,here's a good beginning reason to be 4 obama.
he gets the job done.
i dont trust... without a legitimate reason why smacks of bigotry.. it always has borne out to be that in any voter conversations i've had before.
sooooooo prove me wrong.
I agree that it smacks of bigotry. Just those few words without any reason or rationalization. Not only Barack, but Michell too. Sheesh!
Oh....maybe scrabble just needs to draw more letters so he/she can write an intelligent paragraph. Yea, that's it..........
Isn't it amazing how you can usually sense whether someone has a well thought out position, or has good intentions and just needs to re-align their thinking a little, or...... is just ignorant and biggoted??
Of course, sometimes we like to have a little fun at the expense of the latter. :)
I've played Scrabble. It's tricky. Someone can slap an "es" on the end of my OMG.I.USED.THE.X word like, jukebox, and land a plethora of points that I did all the work for.
Scrabble cannot be trusted. Uh uh! No way, no how.
See, I made a statement, and backed it up. AWESOME!
Excellent points about scrabble Zoo. I see you have done your homework.
Uhhhhh, if you are making a point about some of my posts today, I plead guilty as charged. I seem to have had a day of standing on my soap box.....lol (And I can back that up, but I'd rather not! :)
HAHA! No, no. That particular line of reasoning is for our friend Scrabble.
I have less patience than the rest of you when it comes to "fear being the motivator" in these well-meaning, though, profoundly uneducated Obama detractors. (And didn't this originally start as another "he's a radical muslim" thread?)
A buddy of mine said it best to one such person:
You honestly think that 35 or 40 some odd years ago Barack Obama received training at a Muslim school in Africa that included terrorist training? That he was somehow selected by a super secret Illuminati style sect of, still to this day, unheard of African Muslim terrorists bent on the destruction of the U.S. of A.? You think that after he takes the oath of office that he'll grab the Bible he was just sworn in on, rip it in half and then grab John Roberts by the throat and throw him off the ledge of the Capitol steps all the while chanting the name of Allah as the secret brigade of Muslim terrorists descend on D.C. in droves of Blackhawks (sold to the terrorists by Cheney of course), laying waste to innocents everywhere? I mean if you don't want to vote for Obama because you like McCain, that's cool. If you don't want to vote for Obama, because you're afraid he'll raise your taxes and spend all your money that's cool. If you don't want to vote for him because you think he's unqualified to hold the office, that's cool. But to not vote for him because you think he's some sort of radical candidate who is secretly lying in wait to help bring about the demise of Western Civilization, then you have issues.
1. We don't appreciate the use of profanity toward your hosts.
2. There's really no need to post your mudslinging more than once.
