    Celeste and Loren are Missionaries in Africa and can shed some firsthand light on one of our Presidential candidates.

    “Thanks for sending out an alert about Obama. We are living and working in Kenya for almost twelve years now and know his family (tribe) well. They are the ones who were behind the recent Presidential election chaos here. Thousands of people have been displaced by election violence (over 350,000) and I don’t know the last count of the dead. Obama, under “friends of Obama” gave almost a million dollars to the opposition campaign who just happened to be his cousin, Raila Odi nga, who is a socialist trained in East Germany . He has been trying to bring Kenya down for years and the last president threw him in prison for trying to subvert this country! December 27th elections brought cries from ODM (Odinga Camp) of rigged election. Obama and Raila speak daily. As we watch Obama rise in th e US we are sure that whatever happens, he will use the same tactic, crying rigged election if he doesn’t win, and possibly cause a race war in America. What we would like you to know is what the American press has been keeping a dirty little secret. Obama IS a muslim and he IS a racist and this is a fullfilllment of the 9-11 threat that was just the beginning. Jihad is the only true muslim way. We have been working with them for 20 years this July! He is not an American as we know it. Please encourage your friends and associates not to be taken in by those that are promoting him. It is world wide jihad. All our friends in Europe are very disturbed by the muslim infiltration into their countries.

    By the way, his true name is Barak Hussein Muhammed Obama. Won’t that sound sweet to our enemies as they swear him in on the Koran!?”

  2. Yes, he is a muslim; and is he even considered to be “black”?
    Because really, I think that is the only reason a lot more blacks are voting. I don’t care if he were PURPLE, Wake up american people.
    Stu, I am also glad that you brought this topic up.
    I don’t think my first comment went through, so let me say it again. I am not praying for a certian president, we need to pray for God’s will to be done in this election. God has allowed things to happen for a reason. America is reminding me of the children of Isreal in the old testament, sooo rebellious. We have christian roots that are being plucked up more and more daily. When prayer was taken out of school, we saw shootings in school. What do you think will happen to schools when Obama pushes for the hate crime. Worse, What will happen to the churches? Do you actually think Martin Luther King Jr. would like the fact that his speech is being used to support homosexuality? I don’t think so. He would be disgusted, just as I am disgusted with this generation. The Lord is coming soon, and I’m afraid many will be left behind because of this countries ignorance and blindness.

    Hello Casey Eakes, welcome. He will be whatever people want him to be, as so long as it helps to get him elected.It’s a politician thing, that’s just how they are, and none of them are worthy of complete trust.It’s rather sad really….but that’s the way it is.

  4. Chris C. said

    You all can keep making up whatever you want.

    Obama has never claimed to be a follower of Islam. He has been a member of a Christian church for two decades. I myself am inclinded to think he is rather un-religious in day-to-day life. But he is certainly not a Muslim. Those of you who keep propogating this fear and xenophobia need to step back into reality for a few moments…breathe the rational air.

  5. Tripp said

    Chris – We can agree to disagree. Time will tell the truth. I believe he is a Muslim and I am hoping and praying that he doesn’t win the nomination.

    Here’s someone to think about: Cindy McCain

    There was an article in the Wall Street Journal on Cindy McCain, John’s wife. All I ever saw was this attractive woman standing beside John. I was surprised how talented and involved with world problems she is. This is a summary of the article.

    She graduated from Southern Cal and was a special-needs teacher.

    After her Dad died she became involved with his beer distributing firm and is now the chairwoman. Sales have doubled since she has taken over from her father.

    They have a marriage prenuptial agreement, her assets remain separate.

    She is involved around the world clearing land mines – travels to these countries on a detonation team and service on their board.

    They have a 19 year old serving in Iraq, another son in the Naval Academy, a daughter recently graduated from Columbia Univ., an adopted daughter in high school, and a son who is the finance guy at the beer firm.

    Raised kids in Phoenix, Az rather than Washington DC.(better atmosphere) He commuted.

    In 1991, Mrs. McCain came across a girl in an orphanage in Bangladesh. Mother Teresa implored Mrs. McCain to take the baby with severe cleft palate. She did so without first telling her husband. The couple adopted the girl who has had a dozen operations to repair her cleft palate and other medical problems.

    They have a Family Foundation for children’s causes.

    She’s active with “Halo Trust” – to clear land mines, provide water and food in war ravaged and developing countries.

    She will join an overseas mission of “Operation Smile”, a charity for corrective surgery on children’s faces.

    She has had two back surgeries and became addicted to pain killers. She talks openly about it which she says is part of the recovery process.

    I’m surprised the media is so quiet about her attributes. She sounds more capable than Hillary or Obama. We would really get two for the price of one. A person with business and international experience. John did work for the firm for awhile when he left the Navy. She, however, has the real business experience. Very interesting.

    Maybe we should stop arguing about whether or not Obama is a muslim and take a look at what he has accomplished and what Hillary has accomplished….then compare that with what the McCain’s have accomplished. Who do YOU want running the country?

  7. Fred said

    Not an aging ex-fighter pilot about to enter senility. Who knows what McCain will do next to prove he still has what it takes? What happened to his first wife?

  8. Tripp said

    Hahahaha!!!! THAT is what you’re worried about??? Gimme a break!

  9. Fred said

    No breaks due. McCain is known as a womanizing, hotheaded personality type. He can’t change. Add his age to that equation and you get someone I wouldn’t want running the local bingo parlor.

    Give yourself a break, sport.

  10. Tripp said

    and what is Billary and Barry known as…..sport?

  11. zerxil said

    Hey Tripp, lay off hillary. She lived through sniper fire & a rocket attack. Barak Hussein Muhammed Obama, not barry, but hey whats in a name? Is it to late to nominate Cindy? Anyway Mccain is getting to old to play around…when did he lose his temper?

  12. Fred said

    You tell me, chief. You asked a question (post #6) and I gave you my answer.

  13. Fred said

    Zerxil, Google “mccain temper” and tell ’em Fred sent you.

  14. zerxil said

    Yes he has a temper, but has he ever lost his mind to it? He harnesses his anger and wins debates and other things. Whats wrong with that?

  15. Fred said

    You want to vote for a senile ex-fighter pilot who loses his temper if he doesn’t get his way; who ditched his disabled wife to marry his rich girlfriend and who more than likely will be unwilling to get us out of Iraq and Afghanistan because to him it is vindication for Vietnam (or whatever) then go ahead and vote for him.

  16. Tripp said

    Are you gonna vote for Hillary or Obama, Fred? I think I saw somewhere in here where you stated that you are a Christian.

  17. Fred said

    I am going to vote for “none of the above”!

  18. F. L. A. said

    Fred has mentioned his theological affiliation on numerous occasions.Tripp, are you implying that a Christian wouldn’t vote for Hilary Clinton? If so, then why not? I am just curious.

  19. zerxil said

    FLA, Hillary is a Christian. She said so herself. So I would think she would vote for herself.

  20. Chris C. said

    Yes, that logic is rock solid, Zerx.

  21. Tripp said

    well, fred….we might be close to agreeing on something

    mrs. mccain certainly has an appealing record, but i too….like you….have some issues with senator mccain….they may not be the same issues as yours, but issues…nonetheless

    i’m certainly not going to vote for either of the other 2 candidates

    FLA – hillary is for same sex marriages, pro-choice and has a very ugly closet full of skeletons….you may find some Christians who will vote for her, but i would question their beliefs

  22. Chris C. said

    Yes, however the liberal and progressive base is concerned with fighting poverty, empowering the poor, fighting disease, and advancing education — things I think Jesus might be in favor of. Something about, “the least of these…” ?

    Christian =/= Republican.

  23. Tripp said

    and they have such a fabulous track record of accomplishing so much in those areas you mentioned, chris

  24. Chris C. said

    What about The New Deal, The Great Society…

    I’m not saying those were perfect programs or platforms, and I’m not suggesting that these problems are solved (or that liberals are the only ones who can solve them). I’m just saying as long as the platform of conservatives in this country is based on fear and terror and war, the ‘least’ among us in society will continue to be ignored.

    After all, we’re you’re already in debt and borrowing money to fight a war on multiple fronts…there’s only so much money to go around.

  25. Tripp said

    I don’t think there’s anyone who can get us out of this war. I think it’s going to go on for a very long time. The democrats talk a big game, but when it comes down to it do you really believe that they’ll pull all the troops out of Iraq? There’s no way. What I do believe is that we need to figure out a way to more effectively defend our own country and do more to ensure that another 9/11 doesn’t happen on our soil. I’m afraid if we pull out of Iraq we’re speeding up that process and another attack will happen sooner.

  26. John said

    “I think it’s going to go on for a very long time.”
    Perhaps or perhaps not.We’ll all just have to wait and be surprised.
    If such an attack on American soil does happen again, I will be very surprised if the attack isn’t much worse in every way.Tragic as 9/11 was, it was pretty much small potatoes.All they did was crash some of our planes into a couple of buildings.They are capable of soooo much more now.
    I have met some [very annoying] “Christians” in the past that thanked God for such tragedies because they have the belief that such things help speed up the arrival of Armageddon[“Oh boy, the world is endinnnnnggggg! eeYayyyyyyyyyy!” Sigh…slap my forehead,rolling of my eyes].These are the same types of people that think of A.D.S. as Gods cure for homosexuality and thought that the Amish children that were gunned down in their school deserved it…for following a “false religion”.
    Ever meet people like this?
    I wonder, is there anyone reading here like this?
    If so, then I have some questions to ask you[I know, you’re wondering “Why not ask the people that you’ve met these questions?” Because then they try and find out were I live and follow me home, and then I have to murder them.And forensic sciences are such a pain in the butt these days[grin]].

  27. John said

    Darn it all, I meant A.I.D.S., not A.D.S.
    I’m so tired.

  28. Chris C. said

    Didn’t you hear, John? AIDS was created by the government…

    *rolls eyes*

    Speaking of controversial (read: ignorant) remarks, John, you should get in touch with Pastor John Hagee of Cornerstone Baptist Church in TX. He’s one who thinks that natural disasters are God’s way of punishing sin and, though I’ve never heard him say so, he’s probably pretty excited about the coming apocalypse too.

  29. John said

    [snicker,snicker]Yes Chris C., I have heard of this theory, from some of my own co-workers in fact.And a teacher I once had in High School, now that I think on it.
    Thank you for the information.We shall check him out.
    Goodnight.

  30. Tripp said

    It will definitely be interesting to see what does actually happen. Personally, I think Hagee is a few sandwiches short of a picnic. I guess every religion has its own extremists. The people who think that 9/11 was a good thing ought to be lined up and shot. Any Christian who predicts or speculates when Jesus will return is committing a sin by doing so. Christians have their walking orders. Spread the gospel and help those in need. Try to live as Christ did.

  31. F. L. A. said

    “The people who think that 9/11 was a good thing ought to be lined up and shot.”
    And don’t forget to sprinkle pig blood on them before you squeeze that trigger.
    Were were you when John and I were debating with people on the “Can God save Osama Bin Laden?” site[HUGE SHARP-TOOTHED GRIN]?

  32. misinformed said

    John Hagee is not Baptist – He is with the assembly of God denomination. Get your facts correct before posting.

    Also, the Tripp guy’s post seems to be an oxymoron. On one breath he says to shoot someone and in the next he tells Christians to live like Christ did.

    Things that make you go hum?

  33. Tripp said

    Hi Misinformed. It’s true that I TRY to live as Christ did. But, nobody can live a life just like Christ. We can try, but that’s all. He is the Son of the Living God. I am human and I am allowed to say things like that if I want. This is America. In the end I am forgiven for my sins, regardless of what I say in this life. It’s true that assuredly Christ does not want those people lined up and shot, but He is Jesus, Christ. I am but a mere human and I can’t help my emotions sometimes. If you feel differently about the extremists then perhaps you should look in the mirror.

  34. misinformed said

    Tripp,

    Sounds like you need to read more of what Jesus had to say concerning issues instead of living out your emotions. Read what Paul had to say concerning those who persecuted him.

    Read books like Foxes book of martyrs or Tortured for Christ or the biography of Jim Elliot.

    We, as Christians don’t live according to our emotions. We live according to the Word of God. Our examples are in the New testament and godly men & women who have sacrificed their very lives just to reach one muslim or unbeliever with the Gospel.

    “The love of Christ constrains us”
    “We cannot help but speak of the things we have seen and heard”
    “Woe is unto me if I preach not the Gospel”
    “Go into all the world and make disciples”
    “Christ who is our life”
    “Bless those that persecute you”

    Your emotional call to “kill em all” is not grounded in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Forget about your American rights. You are a citizen of Heaven, a sojourner here. You are an Ambassador of Jesus Christ, called to reconcile all to Him by proclaiming His gospel.

    I live in America, and thank God for it. Yet, this is not my home. It offends me no more if a muslim destroys the towers, than it does if abortion is legalized. Both are evil acts commited by unregenerate human beings. My calling is not to line them up and shoot them. It is to compassionately proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    You are judging based on someones outward actions, yet God judges the heart. The one who lusts after a woman in his heart is just as guilty before God as the one who commits adultery physically. One who hates someone unBiblically is just as guilty as one who pulls the trigger in cold-blooded murder.

    Sincerely, tryng to inform

  35. Tripp said

    Misinformed – Thank you for your kind words. I appreciate your sincerety. You obviously know your stuff and you have a big heart.

    But…I hope you’re not suggesting that capital punishment is un-Biblical. I see we both agree that in American folks have every right to believe whatever and say whatever they want, even something as completely asinine as saying that they thank God for such tragedies as 9/11 because help speed up the arrival of Armageddon.

    I agree with you on everything you mentioned, but remember that Jesus did get angry. Do you think He overturned the money-changer’s tables in the temple because He was happy? Scholars suggest that there was no way a normal man could have lifted those tables alone. They weighed hundreds of pounds. But, we both know that Jesus could have lifted them with His pinky toe if He wanted do. He was MAD!

    Pastors like Hagee make me MAD! People that say ludicrous things about tragic events killing thousands of people perpetrated by radical muslims make me MAD! Abortion clinics make me MAD! And if it’s OK for Jesus to get mad, then it’s OK for me to get mad too.

    I believe it’s time for Christians to stand up for what they know is right. We’ve got no candidate for President, so what do we do? Personally, I certainly won’t be voting for the muslim.

  36. misinformed said

    Tripp,

    Capital punishment is Biblical, both in O.T. & N.T.

    But lining people up and shooting them just because they have emotional upset you personally is not. There is a difference.

    Getting Biblically angry, as in the case of Christ with the money changers, is not sin. You need to learn the difference.

    Also, our government is sanctioned by God to inforce the law of the land. The Church is sanctioned by God to spread the Gospel of Grace in Jesus Christ our Lord. Again, there is a difference.

    People like Hagee who are in Biblical error need to be rebuked Biblically, not lined up and shot. We are the body of Christ and Paul stated clearly what to do concerning Christians who stray from Biblical truth. And I can’t read anywhere of lining them up and shooting them.

    I hope you will read the books I recommended. It seems you are in love with America too much. Be angry and sin not, that includes hatred in your heart for unbiblical reasons.

    We wrestle NOT against flesh and blood. Our weapons are spiritual.

    And Jesus didn’t get “mad”, that is a term used for one who has lost control of their emotions and temper. Jesus had righteous indignation – zeal for His Fathers house.

  37. zerxil said

    We need more people like misinformed around here, and everywhere else.
    31, No just dip the bullets. They might not be Muslim, so all that work down the tubes.

  38. Tripp said

    misinformed – i humbly agree

    back to the matter at hand

    are you voting for mccain?

  39. misinformed said

    I heard Allen Keys would be on the ballet. If he is, he’s got my vote. If he ain’t, then Huckabee does. If he ain’t, then I’ll write in Dave Ramsey 🙂

    Maybe we should have a Muslim in the white house. Clinton was a Southern Baptist and look at the mess. Bush Jr. is united methodist, he has done a little better. At least he can admit what is considered a sexual relationship, unlike Mr. Clinton.

    Carter, again southern Baptist.
    Bush sr. episcopal

    I know what we need – A reformed 5 point Calvinist. I wonder if RC Sproul is available? 🙂
