Christian right intensifies attacks on Obama (APO)
Associated Press ^ | ERIC GORSKI and RACHEL ZOLL

Terrorist strikes on four American cities. Russia rolling into Eastern Europe. Israel hit by a nuclear bomb. Gay marriage in every state. The end of the Boy Scouts.

All are plausible scenarios if Democrat Barack Obama is elected president, according to a new addition to the campaign conversation called "Letter from 2012 in Obama's America," produced by the conservative Christian group Focus on the Family Action.

The imagined look into the future is part of an escalation in rhetoric from Christian right activists who are trying to paint Obama in the worst possible terms as the campaign heads into the final stretch and polls show the Democrat ahead.

Although hard-edge attacks are common late in campaigns, the tenor of the strikes against Obama illustrate just how worried conservative Christian activists are about what should happen to their causes and influence if Democrats seize control of both Congress and the White House.

"It looks like, walks like, talks like and smells like desperation to me," said the Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell of Houston, an Obama supporter who backed President Bush in the past two elections. The Methodist pastor called the 2012 letter "false and ridiculous." He said it showed that some Christian conservative leaders fear that Obama's faith-based appeals to voters are working.

Like other political advocacy groups, Christian right groups often raise worries about an election's consequences to mobilize voters. In the early 1980s, for example, direct mail from the Moral Majority warned that Congress would turn a blind eye to

He'll know what real desperation feels like when Islam's bombs drop on his dimwit head. It's true, the Devil has managed to fool many with promises of peace, even the 'elect.'

Terror strikes in the US, nukes on Israel and Russia invading neighbours is merely making Christian activists worried about their "causes and influence". WTH!? The Assorted Pansies are a bunch of freaks.

I know what you “mean” and am in full agreement. I cannot believe the way some Christians are falling for this. Unless they are “false” Christians, the same way Obama is the “false” Messiah.

That will happen. I think we are also going to see “cells” of 3-4 people in an “underground” similar to Nazi occupied Europe. John Galt is going to be “The man”.

The truth always puts Obama in the worst possible light.

I did a quick search of Rev. Caldwell and he appears to be legit. But in spite of that he appears to have fallen for the baloney that Hussein is a capital C Christian.

http://www.kingdombuilders.com/templates/cuskingdombuilders/details.asp?id=23260&PID=74164

Looks like he may be pushing for Hussein for the same reason Colin Powell is; the color of his complexion. Darn shame, too. Seems to be a good man.

Mat 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Come to think of it, Obama seems to have hornswoggled the whole country on the cheap. No signs, no wonders, just a bunch of meaningless hot air!

Well like FR. For one. But local. Organizations like NAACP. We will be the minority.

As the above video pointed out about abortion/murder... All these 'pastors' 'Episcopal priests' 'United Methodist pastors' and other clergy embracing homosexuality and abortion, many ways to heaven...etc that support Obama ARE NOT Christians. They are wolves in sheep's clothing, teachers of doctrines of demons deceiving even the 'elect'. Obama scoffs at Christians and his own words prove it. I still peg him as a sleeper-cell Muslim and it slipped out to Stephenopopolis and Momar Cadafi confirmed it.

Yes, thank you. I see no opposition to the coming supression from the opponents of such things as the Patriot Act. I’ts all “selective indignation”.
