Christians Who Support and Promote Obama Need to Rethink
For those of you who believe that President Obama holds to strong Judeo Christian values please review the following:
Obama does not believe in the Christian view of salvation (Jesus said - "I am the way the truth and the life no man comes to the father but by me") - http://www.godtube.com/view_video.php?viewkey=62e5b7270066e102db11
Bottom line Obama is pro-choice not pro-life:
Abortionists talk about reducing unwanted pregnancies. Pro-Lifers talk about loving the child no matter the circumstance. Christian pro-lifers promote abstinence and sexual relations within the context of marriage, abortionists and pro-choicers promote the free access to contraceptives so that people can have as much sex as they want no matter what situation they are in and not have to "worry" about an "unwanted" pregnancy.
As Christians, we cannot take this stand. God intended sex to be within the context of marriage, and our God is a God of laws and He has consequences for those who break His laws. Like it or not, Bible based Christians should not advocate for methods of allowing sin without consequence.
Barack Obama is undecided on whether life begins at conception and he would expand access to contraception. He is rated 100% by National Abortion Rights Action League on pro-choice votes in 2005, 2006 & 2007, and rated 0% by the National Right to Life.
He thinks moral arguments from pro-lifers are counterproductive. He supports Roe v. Wade and will protect a “woman’s right to choose” whether she kills the unborn child in her womb. Abortionists say, "My body, my choice" but they are not talking about painfully dismembering their own body, they are talking about doing it to another persons body which happens to reside within theirs. Killing a child outside the womb is illegal, killing a child of the same age within the womb is not (in both the US and Canada). But God says "Thou shall not murder", and abortion is murder.

Voted YES on expanding research to more embryonic stem cell lines. (Apr 2007)

Instead of encouraging the promotion of abstinence, Senator Obama:
Voted YES on $100M to reduce teen pregnancy by education & contraceptives. (Mar 2005)
Sponsored bill providing contraceptives for low-income women. (May 2006)
As an Illinois State Senator, Barack Obama opposed the Illinois Born Alive Infants Protection Act. The legislation defined any infant born alive as a "person” who deserves full legal protection.
The Illinois Born Alive Infants Protection Act was modeled after the federal version, with the identical definition of “born alive.” The World Health Organization created this definition in 1950. The United Nations adopted it in 1955.
Obama actively opposed the legislation in the Illinois State Senate. In 2001, he voted no in committee, spoke against it on the Senate floor, and voted present on the floor. In 2002, he voted no in committee, spoke against it on the Senate floor, and voted no on the floor. Obama was the sole senator to ever speak against it on the Senate floor.
The U.S. Senate passed the federal bill unanimously, with Senators Barbara Boxer and Ted Kennedy speaking in support of it.
The pro-abortion group NARAL expressed neutrality on the federal bill. On August 5, 2002, President George W. Bush signed it into law.
For four years Obama has said he would have supported the federal version, but that simply isn’t true. In 2003, as chairman of the Illinois Senate's Health and Human Services Committee, Obama voted yes on an amendment that made the Illinois version identical to the federal one. However, he then voted no on the amended bill.
(Note the first vote under “DP#1” or “Do Pass Amendment #1” was to allow the amendment to be added, making this bill identical to the federal Born Alive bill. The second vote under “DPA” or “Do Pass as Amended” was on the bill as amended. Obama voted to amend the bill and then voted against the amended bill.)

Click here to see a comparison of the final federal version of Born Alive and the 2003 IL version Obama opposed.
It has been speculated that the IL Born Alive bill became unnecessary after passage of the federal bill. This is not true.
The federal legislation was focused on Federal laws only, ensuring that for purposes of federal law, the terms “human being,” “person,” “child,” and “individual” include all born alive infants. The Illinois statute ensures that the same is true for purposes of Illinois law. The two bills are complementary, and the Illinois legislation was necessary to ensure that born alive infants in IL and not at a Federal hospital were fully protected under Illinois law.
Pastor Rick Warren: "At what point does a baby get human rights, in your view?"
Barack Obama "...answering that question with specificity... uh... you know is, is... uh... above my pay grade."

Obama mocked the Bible's value publicly during the election speeches - http://www.godtube.com/view_video.php?viewkey=76822072c0beaf313ad2
All of the point above should clearly demonstrate that Obama does not share God's view on these critical issues of personhood, which are the basic fundamentals of life and liberty. If you like Obama because he is attractive, funny, charasmatic, black, young, energetic, or just because he has a personality you like, wonderful, invite him for a barbeque, but as for promoting him to other sincere Christians, please stop.
