Each Wednesday I publish one of my columns from the past that might be helpful. The following was published in 2008 before Obama was elected.
Every person has a right to his own opinions but no one has a right to his own facts. The Obama facts that follow should limit those voting for him to his immediate family, a few friends, and of course all committed racists and socialists.
Like all sane citizens, I want the best candidate to win the office of President. After all, we are all in the same boat and if one end goes down, we all go down. After a thorough examination of the relevant facts, I cannot vote for Obama for the following reasons:
He is the Senate’s most liberal Senator and Joe Biden is the third most liberal. Some people have accused me of not liking liberals so let me set the record straight. I don’t! They have done more harm to our nation than the Communist Party (their first cousins). Liberals march and scream over the slaughter of baby seals in Newfoundland and destruction of the spotted owl but they can’t squeeze out a single tear for the butchered babies who can’t even raise a whimper of protest against their slaughter.
Senator Obama voted for partial birth abortion. He refused to protect born alive aborted babies and whatever your position on abortion, such a decision is barbaric. Furthermore, he voted against informing parents of minor girls who wanted out-of-state abortions. Wonder why he didn’t vote “present” on that vote?
He has not been candid (honest) about his Muslim connection. Even “conservative” media have been Muslim, abortion, snookered on this issue. It is a fact that he has three Muslim names—Barack Hussein Obama. Moreover, his father, stepfather, grandfather and grandmother were/are Muslims. When a Muslim converts to another religion, he or she takes a new name. Same when a “Christian” converts to Islam, they choose a Muslim name. Many U.S. athletes who have done that.
During an ABC interview, Obama spoke of “my Muslim faith” and was corrected by the host! Think! Is it possible that you could ever “misspeak” like that? So how could he?
Obama admitted in his “Dreams From My Father,” that his school was “a Muslim school” and admits in his book that his teacher wrote his mother about him making faces during “Koranic studies.” He also admits that he studied the Koran from age 6 to 10.
He also confessed that the Muslim call to prayer is the “prettiest sound” on earth and he can say it with a first class Arabic accent. That chant is “Allah is supreme! Allah is supreme! Allah is supreme! Allah is supreme! I witness that there is no god but Allah I witness that there is no god but Allah. I witness that Muhammad is his prophet.” Hummm, no god but Allah!
One becomes a Muslim when he declares, before witnesses, that Allah is God and Mohammed is his prophet. While Obama’s web site declares that he “has never been a Muslim,” his campaign told the LA Times that he is not a “practicing” Muslim. He may not be a Muslim now, but he was at one time so why the lying? Furthermore, if he is no longer a Muslim, it means that he is an apostate and any Muslim has a right and duty to kill him.
Americans need to know if their future President will “toe the mark” of the mullahs and try to implement Sharia law in America as they have in other nations. It is not bigotry to demand an answer to this question. It is a major dereliction of duty not to do so. It is also cowardly.
His web site declares that he is a committed Christian, but all informed committed Christians know what that means, so there is no doubt that he is not “committed.” However, his statement about his religious experience is so murky it indicates that he, like many Americans, is only a “Christian” in name only. He affirmed, “I believe there are many paths to the same place.” He is wrong. Acts 4:12 reveals “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Christ declared in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
He is very careless with his associates like the convicted felon Tony Rezko who was a major supporter of his candidacy and helped him get a sweetheart loan. Tony was recently convicted in Illinois for squeezing kickbacks from contractors. Or what about Obama jumping in bed with some homebred U.S. terrorists like Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, and receiving support from other domestic terrorists? It is a fact that Obama’s political career started in Ayers’ living room. Obama has difficulty with the truth.
Moreover, Obama was a member of the cultic Trinity United Church of Christ for 20 years and was very close to Pastor Wright, the radical left wing, cursing, anti-white, Black Liberationist. That is the church that promoted the racist Black Muslim Louis Farrakhan on the front page of their church magazine. It is interesting to note that the church has many Muslims who are members of the church without repudiating their religion! Do you understand what that means? The church is a left wing, anti-white, anti-Christian, anti-free enterprise, socialist/Marxist cult that Obama was a member of for 20 years! What does that say about his character and judgment?
When a person lies down with dogs, he gets up with fleas and since Obama has been in bed with all the above odd balls, Socialists/Marxists, unrepentant terrorists, self-righteous media persons, corrupt politicians, charlatan preachers, and convicted felons it is no surprise that the Senator is crawling with fleas. Makes me scratch to think about it.
Yes, each person has a right to his or her opinion but the above are facts (and a few opinions) that must be addressed by the candidate, yet cowardly media people refuse to question him. Why the free pass? I am not surprised at their prejudice; however, I am surprised at their lack of shame.
Fact, Fraud or Faith?

Only an uninformed fanatic says that evolution or creation can be proved scientifically. Christians believe in creationism because we believe in the veracity of the Bible but we also have scientific evidence to support our position. In every debate I’ve had with evolutionary scientists, the arrogant, asinine accusation is made, “Well, evolution is scientific while creationism is religion.” Evolution is about as scientific as a voodoo rooster plucking ceremony in Haiti. Almost.
