Democrat Sues Sen. Obama Over ‘Fraudulent Candidacy’

Monday, August 25th, 2008

Don’t look for Obama’s eligibility for President to ever make it to the nightly news. The mainstream media’s love affair with the presidential hopeful is so intense that this type of news is buried.
But we really must know…is Obama truly eligible to run for the office of President of the United States?

A prominent Pennsylvania Democrat has sued Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic National Committee and the Federal Election Commission, claiming that Obama is not a natural-born citizen and, therefore, is not eligible to be president of the United States.

Philip J. Berg, a former member of Pennsylvania’s Democratic State Committee and former deputy attorney general of Pennsylvania, filed the lawsuit this week in U.S District Court, asking the court to declare Obama ineligible for the presidency and to prevent him from running for the position.

However, a WND investigation has found that at least part of Berg’s lawsuit relies on discredited claims.

A separate motion was also filed seeking a temporary restraining order on Obama’s presidential campaign until Obama’s eligibility can be verified.

The lawsuit claims Barack Obama’s eligibility is questionable on several grounds, including the allegation that he was born in Kenya to parents unable to automatically grant him American citizenship, that his Hawaii birth certificate is a forgery – a now discredited claim – that he was made a citizen of Indonesia as a child and that he retained foreign citizenship into adulthood without recording an oath of allegiance to regain any theoretical American citizenship.

In short, the suit claims Obama was not born an American citizen; lost any hypothetical American citizenship he had as a child (Editor’s note: This point is not supported by U.S. citizenship law); may not now be an American citizen and even if he is, may hold dual citizenships with other countries. If any, much less all, of these allegations are true, the suit claims, Obama cannot constitutionally serve as president.

Why would a Democrat do this to his party’s own candidate? And why right before the National Convention?

More Americans Question Religion’s Role In Politics

Monday, August 25th, 2008

The atheist would love it if Christians would not take an active role in politics, but as for me, I will be taking my relationship with Christ into the ballot box with me every time.

Some Americans are having a change of heart about mixing religion and politics. A new survey finds a narrow majority of the public saying that churches and other houses of worship should keep out of political matters and not express their views on day-to-day social and political matters. For a decade, majorities of Americans had voiced support for religious institutions speaking out on such issues.

The new national survey by the Pew Research Center reveals that most of the reconsideration of the desirability of religious involvement in politics has occurred among conservatives. Four years ago, just 30% of conservatives believed that churches and other houses of worship should stay out of politics. Today, 50% of conservatives express this view.

FigureAs a result, conservatives’ views on this issue are much more in line with the views of moderates and liberals than was previously the case. Similarly, the sharp divisions between Republicans and Democrats that previously existed on this issue have disappeared.

There are other signs in the new poll about a potential change in the climate of opinion about mixing religion and politics. First, the survey finds a small but significant increase since 2004 in the percentage of respondents saying that they are uncomfortable when they hear politicians talk about how religious they are – from 40% to 46%. Again, the increase in negative sentiment about religion and politics is much more apparent among Republicans than among Democrats.

Second, while the Republican Party is most often seen as the party friendly toward religion, the Democratic Party has made gains in this area. Nearly four-in-ten (38%) now say the Democratic Party is generally friendly toward religion, up from just 26% two years ago. Nevertheless, considerably more people (52%) continue to view the GOP as friendly toward religion.

FigureThe poll by Pew Research Center for the People & the Press and the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life finds increasing numbers of Americans believing that religiously defined ideological groups have too much control over the parties themselves. Nearly half (48%) say religious conservatives have too much influence over the Republican Party, up from 43% in August 2007. At the same time, more people say that liberals who are not religious have too much sway over the Democrats than did so last year (43% today vs. 37% then).

Controversial Pastor Endorses Obama

Monday, August 25th, 2008

Unfortunately, there are people who call themselves “preachers” or “pastors”, but do not actually fit the Biblical descritpion of either. The sad part is that people are taken in by their lies and end up giving money to support their lavish lifestyles. Randy and Paula White have been on our TV’s for years saying if we will just “sow a seed” (ie. give them money) then we will all be healthy and wealthy — prosperous beyond our wildest dreams . They call themselves “pastors”, but they do not live their lives according to God’s Word. Recently, this ‘pastoral’ couple announced they were getting a divorce because their lives were going in different directions. If you dont know what God says about divorce, then please read Matthew 5:32 which says, “But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery”.

Now, Randy White (and apparently his ex-wife also) have decided to support Barack Obama.
Question: How can you be a preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, yet support a candidate that does not at all agree with the teachings of the Gospel?
Answer: You cant.

Some prominent charismatic leaders in Florida are throwing their support behind Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.

The Tampa Tribune reports controversial pastor Randy White of the Without Walls megachurch in Tampa is supporting Barack Obama and believes his estranged wife and former partner in the church, Paula White, does also.

According to Federal Election Commission records, Paula White gave Obama’s campaign $2,300, while her husband donated $2,000 to Obama’s White House bid. She is currently under investigation by the Senate Finance Committee for allegedly using the church’s tax-free status to buy lavish furnishings for her personal use.

Without Walls International Church did not respond to AFN’s request for an interview with Randy White.

DNC Embracing Homosexual Agenda

Monday, August 25th, 2008

This should come as no surprise to anyone.

Pro-family leader Matt Barber says the “radical San Francisco-style social experimentation” promoted by Barack Obama and the Democratic Party is not what is best for the country.

The Denver Post reports 358 openly homosexual delegates are in Denver for the Democratic National Convention, the largest number ever to take part in a major party national convention. A special DNC program called “Pride in the Party” was set up to recruit more homosexual delegates and homosexual delegates of color.

Matt Barber, director for cultural affairs with Liberty Counsel, says radical homosexual activists have permeated the Democratic Party. “Because of that the Democrat Party has moved further and further to the left and has really adopted the homosexual lobby’s wish list in its entirety,” he continues.

On the Republican side, the Log Cabin Republicans claim they will be sending about 100 openly homosexual delegates to the Republican Convention in Minneapolis the first week in September.

Businessman Determined to Cancel Jerusalem Gay Pride

Monday, August 25th, 2008

I have said before and I will say it again ‘gay pride’ is an oxymoron. We blog about this abomination every year. Homosexuals are determined to spit upon the Christian and Jewish religions by holding a gay pride parade in the capital city of Jerusalem each year. I cannot tell you how disgusted I am by the thought of it, much less the actual carrying out of a perverted show being held in the Holy City. It is like the homosexuals want to bring a little Sodom and Gomorrah to Israel to flaunt their perversion in front of God’s people. It is an abomination plain and simple.

Jerusalem mayoral candidate, Israeli-Russian businessman Arcadi Gaydamak, is determined to cancel the annual gay pride parade in the capital.

“When I’m elected mayor, I would die before allowing the pride parade to be held in Jerusalem,” he said Monday during a conference held by the Bikur Holim hospital owned by him.
Jerusalem is a city holy to the three main religions, he explained, and therefore it is unsuitable for a pride parade.

“They want to be proud? They’re allowed to. They want to demonstrate? Fine. But the streets of Jerusalem are a symbol, and parading on them would be an aggressive act against our tradition, against our values and against our morale. I would lie on the ground in order to block the march and would even die before I approve the pride parade in the city.”

Addressing the fact that the pride parade was eventually held in the capital in recent years despite the fact that the current mayor is an ultra-Orthodox man, Gaydamak stated that “(Mayor Uri) Lupolianski) acted like a politician rather than like a human being. His image was more important to him than the city’s tradition.”
