There are many people I respect on here, so it seems very odd to me when they go so off base with critiques on their own writings.
"You should not have made such a declarative statement in your LTE"
I have no problem with making a declaritive statement about a person's faith when they have made their own declaritive statement about it.
Did the bible tell him to lie about keeping our health care plans and doctors>
That I am a hypocrite. I have statements of Obama declaring his christian faith. He chose to go to christian chruches.
The guy from Belpre tried to go from Obama attending a school with Muslims and make a insane leap from that to Obama lying and saying he got the idea from the Koran.
What am I making up?
You should not have made such a declarative statement in your LTE, that's all I am saying
"you are being hypocritical by criticizing him for making a statement that he had no proof of when you have no proof either."
You are free to make up whatever you want to. But when a person says they are Christian, then a rational person should accept that.
I don't think Obama is a person of any faith whatsoever, as most politicians. Often times, they use religion to pander as we cling to our Gods and Guns.
Sorry for the double posts. The mouse is having issues today.
Obama once referred to his MUSLIM faith until Stephonoplis corrected him. I don't think it was anything but a slip of the tongue but he did say it
@Harry..I agree fully to your statement.
How do I discern what religion a person belongs? If a person says they are christian, I tend to believe them until there is enough evidence to show otherwise.
Obama has said, "I am a Christian. So, I have a deep faith. So I draw from the Christian faith."
To be fair, you are being hypocritical by criticizing him for making a statement that he had no proof of when you have no proof either. You could have addressed his lack of proof, but you blew it when you made a declarative statement that you had no proof of
I have no problem with the government redistributing some of my wealth to the needy.
However, I do have a problem with the government taking my money and redistributing to those who aren't needy, and even to wealthy corporations.
I don't think government takes care of the needy very efficiently. We should do it ourselves instead of leaving it to the government.
Well, to be fair..my comment was responding to the guy from Belpre who implied Obama leans on Islamic beliefs.
But, Obama does refer to his Christian faith before. In the end, there is so muc more evidence that Obama is more christian than muslim. There is no way around that.
So you have yet to tell me how you discern that Obama is a FOLLOWER of JESUS CHRIST
Communism would be a more accurate way of describing what you are talking about, however, when government coercion is involved, I have a huge problem with it
"In our household the Bible, the Koran, and the Bhagavad Gita sat on the shelf alongside books of Greek and Norse and African mythology."
And what of it? I have the Bible, Torah, Greek Mythology, Fantasy, Albert Camus and other various books sharing space on my shelves but I'm a Christian.
It is NOT my definition that is the subject here, for it was not I that called Obama a follower of ANYONE. IT was you.
God may and will do as he pleases we are talking about GOVERMENT.
