Politico - The furor surrounding Barack Obama's comments about "bitter" small-town voters and their faith clouds an emerging story line that stood to benefit the eventual Democratic nominee at Republican John McCain's expense.
RLCC Comment: I'm not voting for any of them.
The danger, frankly, is that Democrats will be perceived as disingenuous," said Laura Olson, a Clemson University professor who focuses on politics and religion. "What I really would be concerned about there is that Republicans could really spin this and they could say Obama is a Marxist. That's what Marx said [about religion]: It's the opiate of the masses.
Well, let me say that Marx was wrong about God and Jesus. Here's the truth. False religion is the opiate of the masses.
Many people calling themselves Christians are not Christians. They rail about the right to life but then turn around and clamor for war. They are inconsistent about the right to life. They want to protect theirs even when it means innocent lives are taken by the troops they support. That's sheer evil and antichrist through-and-through. They are also mostly in favor of the death penalty even though so many people have been proven lately to have been on death row after having been wrongfully convicted. These people don't ever talk about all the people who were put to death who were innocent while these same so-called Christians were cold-heartedly calling for their executions. The blood is on their hands.
They better turn, repent, and atone. They call themselves value voters.
If those are their values (hypocrisy, death, and war), they can keep them far away from me.
