Never Been Happier to Not Call Myself a Christian

  1. I really want to say that you can’t be a Christian and write an article that says you can’t be a Christian and vote for Obama. But, I don’t want to sink to that level. Ugh. This stuff makes me want to puke.

  2. That makes me Ill. That is such a horrible misrepresentation of God’ heart as it is presented in the scriptures.. What happened to “they will know we are Christian’s by our love one for another”?

  3. – initial reaction –
    that’s it, sorry zach, but that article says i can’t vote for obama and still be a christian. notice it is an order, not a question. must obey. oddly enough, i now feel like i need to watch a mark driscoll sermon, kill something with my bare hands, work on a truck, ban rights to gays and i feel the need to divide everyone in to ‘us’ and them.

    – real reaction –

    ps : how’d you find that link originally zach?


  4. crazy. And what’s crazier is that i remember when used to hold to a nearly identical position to that article, to the point that i feel i understand why it makes sense to the athor, but i’m left wondering why i ever fell for such unapologetic outgrouping and fundamentalism (not to mention anti-intellectualism)

  5. It is articles and opinions like these that cause me to have real fear for Obama’s life. This is one step away from calling a Christian jihad.

    “Obama-Biden are pro-death. McCain-Palin are pro-life.
    Now choose life that you and your children may live.”

    Basically, a vote for Obama and your children may not live.

    “No, this election is not about race. It’s not about the economy. It’s about obeying God.”

    She may be right that this article is not about race, this is about religion. We have seen what happens when people start attacking others in the obedience of “God.”

    “Obama will use your tax dollars to kill innocent children, and then he’ll take your paycheck and use it to “spread the wealth around.”

    I am moved to tears of pain and frustration.

  6. Again, I’ll bring up the death penalty. If you go to McCain’s website and click on issues- under human dignity and life section there is absolutely nothing about him wanting to abolish the death penalty. So by this author’s reasoning, doesn’t that make McCain-Palin pro-death too?

    As I’ve said before, the “pro-life” camp can’t have it both ways. If you are “pro-life” (taking the term literally) then you have to be against the death penalty.
