Fair enough, but any true Christian voting for Obama is either totally ignorant of the facts or may not be a Christian at all.

But voting for Obama will hasten the rapture. After all, that is what they want.

"Any true Christian... may not be a Christian."

I love ellipsis.

Obama's slated to win more than half of this country's popular vote. Funny thing is, if no true Christian is voting for Obama, then Obama's winning would mean that America is predominantly non-Christian, by your estimation.

And yet you get mad at him for saying this isn't a Christian nation! Can't have it both ways, dude.

What the hell is it about this guy that scares you people so much? I can only assume that you've all taken to telling your kids that if they're not good that Obama will come and get them instead of the Boogeyman.

"any true Christian ... either totally ignorant of the facts ..."

Not really a stretch for you guys.

You say "not a Christian at all" like it's a bad thing.

How dare them Christians think for themselves!! They must not be Christians.

Let me take a stab at this: the only group of real, true Christians are those in your particular subset of a denomination of a schism.

Correct me if I'm wrong here...

I've been to NC. Churches at every corner, KKK, Confederate flags, and so many rednecks you would hardly believe these people have links back to Europe.

And those who are not rednecks (good, kind people whose hospitality and friendship I value) keep their heads well below the religious parapet.

It's the nearest I've seen to Iran.

Evidently you don't get out much.

Or maybe they've, you know, figured out just how bad things can get under the Religious Reich, and decided FREEDOM was the better option.

Not in rural NC I didn't. Nor did I want to. I was disturbed by lawn crosses, the Civil War flags and the tenor of the notices outside the churches. It felt like a society under seige. Even trying to get a bottle of wine for the host of a dinner I had been invited to was like trying to buy something nasty and illegal.

But if you are happy with that kind of lifestyle, then fine.

Of those friends I have there, a not inconsiderable number were planning an eventual move to more northern states.

BTW, being European, I probably travel a lot more than you. Low-fare airlines, excellent road and rail systems make it quite easy. I have copious experience of the richness of cultures from Norway in the north to the Straits of Gibralter, and from Ireland and Britain to the Middle East. I think you could say I get around.

Any true Christian voting for Obama is not a real Christian? Which is it? Make up your mind!

Believing Obama is the AntiChrist despite no Biblical evidence is not ignoring the facts?

The only sources you guys could even come up with is a movie about a comet hitting Earth (Deep Impact).

@Xotan

Get out as you may, you still seem to need a history lesson.

"Churches at every corner, KKK, Confederate flags, and so many rednecks you would hardly believe these people have links back to Europe."

You throw Confederate flags in like you were taught in an American school north of the Mason-Dixon line. Is a pitchfork an evil symbol too? Misuse does not alter original intent.
