Skip to comments.Joe the Plumber: Obama ‘came to Christ and he is my brother’-he-is-my-brother

Samuel Wurzelbacher, the conservative activist popularly known as Joe the Plumber, is circulating a letter praising President Barack Obamas life story and crediting Christianity with his miraculous ascent to the presidency.
Wurzelbacher is the Republican congressional candidate challenging longtime Ohio Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur. He gained national fame during the 2008 election after he challenged Obama on tax policy during a campaign stop.
The letter, provided to The Daily Caller, strikes a respectful tone, at one point saying that Obama came to Christ and he is my brother. Fringe Obama opponents often claim that the president is secretly a Muslim.
Its not well, Christian to question Obamas religious faith, wrote Wurzelbacher.
One of the reasons I really dig Christianity is that its so incredibly powerful and amazing, he wrote. The lives of millions of people have been given meaning by their faith in Christ. And what better confirmation of that strength do we have than the life story of President Obama?
Wurzelbacher then provided a brief summary of the presidents biography, implying that Obamas Christian faith played a key role in his lifes successes.
Imagine being the child of a mixed-race marriage especially in the turbulent 60s and free-wheeling 70s, he wrote. And when you throw in that dad was a Muslim and mom an atheist you know it could not have been easy and they were Communists for crying out loud!
At age six, young Barry was shipped off to Indonesia and exposed to Islam for several years. His parents divorced, he returned to the U.S. and Barack was placed with his grandparents. By the time he got to college, he was experimenting with cocaine, marijuana and even thought about using heroin.

I agree completely. Whether or not he genuinely believes that Obama is something that any real Christian would recognize as a Christian, his comments are politically useful in keeping the media from portraying him as a fringe nutcase. Personally, I am skeptical on Obama's claims that he was born in Hawaii, that he is a Christian, and that he is not a socialist. However, if I was running for office, I would at least pretend to believe those claims. I might argue (as Joe's tone does in the letter) that Obama's actions are surprising for someone who is Christian and not communist, but I wouldn't put much time into arguing about what label applies to the thug in our White House. It's far better to focus on issues and on the outcomes of each of Obama's horrendous policies.
I don’t think Joe is really a plumber. Every plumber knows that s##t flows down hill.
What is this drivel from Joe? Yes, God appoints kings and governments, but they are not always to our benefit, Joe! Sometimes, like NOW, they are a judgment upon a nation. Not every man that ascends is a friend and in no way is it an indicator of The One’s spiritual health.
America = Fantasy Nation
I wonder what prompted him to write this letter to The DC and why he is agreeing to have it sent around to churches ahead of the 2008 election. What does he claim this is in response to?
According to the Egyptian ambassador speaking on Arab TV, Obama told him privately that he was and still is a Muslim who supports the Muslim agenda. All of Obama’s actions fit that explanation - given that the Muslim agenda is the destruction of the US and Israel and the institution of worldwide sharia.
This reminds me so much of Missouri’s law enforcement “truth squads” who were out to quash anybody’s claims that Obama would raise taxes and that he is a Muslim. The truth mustn’t be spoken - unless it’s by Obama himself to his fellow Muslims...
Joe the Plumber needs to realize that Christians don’t go to bed with people who threaten both the media and their opponent into silence and show the credibility of their threats through assassinations. Christians don’t force other Christians to perform what they believe to be murder. Christians don’t make sure that fully-born infants can be killed without fear of prosecution. Christians don’t steal from some people to give to other people. Christians don’t bear false witness by committing forgery and fraud. Christians don’t seek to make government God.
I could go down the whole list of the Ten Commandments and show how Obama has not only trampled each one personally but has policies that assault each commandment. Everything he has fought for is anti-Christian.
Actually his response is straight out of the Gospel.
That being said, he still has no shot. Toledo is addicted to the drug of Marcy Kaptur Pork.
When a culture based on Judeo-Christian beliefs doesn’t even know what those beliefs are, how they influence your life, and how they will manifest themselves in your daily living...this is what you get.
I have never heard obama say one thing Christian; I’ve heard him say a lot of psuedo-Christian things that sound really good and really Christian to the uninformed/ill-informed...Aw screw it, I’ll just say it.
obama is an anti-Christ by his words, actions and deeds. He’s not THE anti-Christ, by any stretch of the imagination. He is one, still, none the less.
Your 15 minutes are up, Joe. Go fix a toilet or something!
I can think of a lot of Scriptures that conflict with what Joe the Plumber said.
Jesus called a spade a spade. That’s why the powerful in His day hated Him.
I don't think so, and the responses you see to Joe's comment on this thread are evidence of that.
The smart thing would have been to say, "I don't know about Obama's religion. You'll have to ask him about that.
Inclined to agree.
“Almost seems tongue-in-cheek.”
I hope so. If he needs a sarc tag, I’m sure we can spare one from around here.
Gag me. What a disappointment he turned out to be.
Did this guy just lose any chance that he may have had to win? How lame can you get.
Except for that dog-eating incident.
“Its not well, Christian to question Obamas religious faith, wrote Wurzelbacher. “
And exactly what does Jesus’ statement “Beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing” mean?
It damn sure is Christian to question someone’s faith.
He does not speak like a Christian so he is whatever he is and a chameleon at least.
The problem with that little item is that it proved to be true. Obama raised taxes on users of some tobacco products by as much as 2400% with the very first piece of legislation he signed into law. A 1 pound bag of loose tobacco went from $14 to $40 overnight.
A Communist is a Communist, BO is no Christian (or Muslim or anything else, simply a chameleon Communist).
I would no sooner praise BO than I would Stalin.
