Should be Obama 527 Network.
Never heard of them before, but Obama has the money to buy anything even a so called Christian group for abortion and socialism apparently!
What kind of Christians are these people?
I was listening to our local country station in a 20 minute drive yesterday and I heard no less than 5 Obama ADs, 0 for McCain.
“Jews for Hitler” update.
This group is from the devil. Pro-life, Pro-Obama...I don’t think so.
According to the staff information: Mara Vanderslice “was the Director of Religious Outreach for the Kerry-Edwards 2004 campaign.”
Try again, Mara...
I went to their website and saw that it looks mysteriously just like BHO’s website.
Republicans / Conservatives should face the fact that “religion” is not a wholly owned subsidiary of conservatives.
Black pro-Obama churches.
Presbyterian (gone far Left (GFL)
Large chunks of the Catholic church (trending or GFL)
The list goes on and on of churches on the churches on the Left.
Then there is the “evangelical Left” or borderline which are simply nimrod pacifists who live in a dream world of Utopian peace and trusting brotherly love. They will rue the day they trusted the Marxists, though they won’t realize it until far too late.
Still, the number of Conservatives in “Church” America outweigh those that have gone to the dark side.
Not sure why we should care or focus on it on FR.
Testimonial from Anthony Christiansen in New York, NY
As a Catholic who is deeply familiar both with the doctrinal and the social teachings of the Church, there is no doubt in my mind that of the two main candidates Obama far better represents the spectrum of Catholic teaching. Our country deeply needs a change of heart - a conversion in Christian terms. The kind of change Obama is endorsing is that sort of conversion.(emphasis mine, tbp) Obama is the candidate for those wanting to champion LIFE in all its diversity. In addition to the Matthew 25 Network website, I highly recommend that undecided Catholic voters see the following links....
How's that for some scary stuff?
Folks, contact your local Christian station via fax or email and direct them to the Lifenews site. If we don't expose their lies now, they will in turn deceive many Christians who will take this fakery as truth.
Obama opposes late term abortions, with a clear exception for the mother's life and health:
"I have repeatedly said that I think it's entirely appropriate for states to restrict or even prohibit late-term abortions as long as there is a strict, well-defined exception for the health of the mother. Now, I don't think that 'mental distress' qualifies as the health of the mother. I think it has to be a serious physical issue that arises in pregnancy, where there are real, significant problems to the mother carrying that child to term."
Wow, 5 seconds on me.
This isn't good...not at all.
Yes, the Lord does believe in helping those with the least...and that's why charitable organizations, and not the Federal Government, are best suited to handle these matters.
Accidentally, they share the same iconography!
Funny, Mathew 25 contains the parable of the three servants.
At the end of it, the person who squandered opportunity had everything he had remaining taken from him and given to the servant that used his master’s wealth to attain more wealth (ie, a capitalist).
The kind who cry “God damn America!”
Here you go:
It’s a bunch of emerging church liberals. Beware!
Email, Print, FAX and FREEP! Don't let these lies go unchallenged.
Obama believes in the culture of death --- Roe v Wade and abortion on demand. Nothing in the Constitution about a right to kill the unborn. Nothing Christian about killing the most innocent in our society. NOTHING!
Emergent church is heresy, and that is all I need to know.
His voting record puts the lie to that statement,
as does his support of the FoCA.
Obama supports partial-birth abortions and so does his wife.
This is a bogus attempt to twist Matthew 25’s story of the sheep and the goats into socialism. The idea is that individuals, poor, middle class or wealthy, are to help those less fortunate. It says nothing about forcing people to give to the government who then decides who gets the money. Pure theological hogwash!
Give me a break! This is worrying: Another features former Reagan official Douglas Kmiec: “Can you be pro-life and vote for Sen. Obama?... The answer is unequivocally yes.”
With a hyperlink, too. :)

Whoever Christiansen is—and I don’t have any clue about that—he is not mainstream Catholic.
As a matter of fact, he is straining credibility to cast himself as “deeply familiar both with the doctrinal and social teachings of the church”.
Obviously, if he is actually and factually deeply familar with the doctrinal and social teachings of Catholicism, he has chosen to repudiate it.
He does not speak for anyone but himself.
I wonder if anyone else noticed anything similar.
He's probably a good example of the kind of "christian" that would support something like Obama.
“Mara Vanderslice, for example, went from a staff job working for Jim Wallis to become the religious point person for Kerry. Kate Michelman, former president ...
“Jim Wallis” the socialist self-professed “evangelical” who writes for “Sojourners”, a leftist religious magazine.

“Heres what we know about John Kerrys religious outreach person. Mara Vanderslice was raised without any faith and didnt become an evangelical Christian until she attended Earlham College, a Quaker school known for its adherence to pacifism.
“When in college, Mara was active in the Earlham Socialist Alliance, a group that supports the convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal and openly embraces Marxism-Leninism.
“After graduating, Mara spoke at rallies held by ACT-UP, the anti-Catholic group that disrupted Mass at St. Patricks Cathedral in 1989 by spitting the Eucharist on the floor. In 2000, she practiced civil disobedience when she took to the streets of Seattle in a protest against the World Trade Organization. In 2002, she tried to shut down Washington, D.C. in a protest against the IMF and the World Bank.”
She, Mara, claims to be a self-professed “born again” Christian. When??????????? did that happen??? And, if it did, she appears to have lost her way.
Christian giving and socialism and contradictory concepts.

I have to go out but will do more investigation when I get back home.
Mara Vanderslice - like the avowed Marxist Obama - they must masquerade as what they are not (steal their way) to get into the “mainstream”.
A bunch of Marxists spend years gaining acceptance as “Christians”, or whatever, not to be what such authentic so-identified persons are, but to use the label, as “Christian”, or whatever, for their Marxist political agendas.
NO TRUE CHRISTIAN WOULD SUPPORT THIS INDIVIDUAL!
Do Christian radio stations, or anyone else, have to accept these ads? I would think that any biblically-based Christian stations would refuse them. And if they don’t, they ought to hear about it from their advertisers and financial supporters, pronto. Otherwise the Church has no one to blame but itself. Like someone said, this a “Jews for Hitler” type of operation.
This is taking the Lord’s name in vain.

During church on Sunday, some group (God Bless them) put pamphlets on all the vehicles in the parking lot which basically questioned whether is is "moral" for a candidate to be so radically promoting abortion, as does Obama.
It couched its "debate" in terms of whether (the pamphlet reader) would willingly give a friend a ride to the local bank if you knew that person was going to rob the bank, kill the bank tellers to eliminate witnesses, and then ask for help in the getaway.
The pamphlet, which seemed to be from a Catholic organization, actually framed the same "ride" question three different ways.
Would you give a ride to a friend if you knew that friend was going to simply watch the bank robbery, and afterwards give police a false description of the robber in order to distract them from finding the real robber.
It was a powerful and well-crafted argument, and I am glad that devout Christians are outwardly joining the public debate on political morality and society.
I only hope that anyone in my ethnically diverse church (1700 members) who is thinking of voting Obama would change their minds.
My church is connected to the Assemblies of God, and the pastor delivers a very fundamental Bible-based message each week ... Christ crucified, redemption, Salvation....
But I fear that many of the members are drawn to the same skin factor that attracts so many minorities to Obama.
This is a non sequitir: “Christian” and “Obama” do not fit as synonyms. The fruit isn’t there.
If babies had feathers they’d be a protected species . Are we sure they are really Christians ? Not all Rolex watches are real .
