Opinion. not fact or really relative to the discusion.

It's as relevant as the topic of abortion itself. If you're going to introduce Obama's stance on abortion as an example why he's not a Christian, then any and all examination of that stance is fair game. Perhaps you'd like to withdraw abortion from the overall topic?

Exactly. It's the Taliban approach to religion: "You either think exactly like us or you are infidels doomed to hell!"

But hey, some people can't get past the Middle Ages...

Slight difference being the Taliban will speed your trip to judgement, most fundamentalists Christians will not.

That's actually better than the fake Christian (i.e. liberals) approach to religion, which treats God's Word like a buffet line: take what you want, ignore the things you don't like.

I wonder if that would remain the case if we labored under a Christian theocracy in this land?

You're absolutely correct Jas. The teachings of the Bible do not leave a margin for error. It's Gods path, or the path of death.

I think Obama would be better served to admit to himself what he is rather than hijacking the Christian religion for his own gains. My opinion, but there it is.


They (politicos) all do it.

The problem is, I bet he actually believes his own garbage. I think he actually has fooled himself into thinking he's a Christian. He's no different from millions of other Americans who claim to be Christian, but whose beliefs and actions clearly say otherwise.

Fine. Then any and all examinations of the reasons underlying Obama's stance on abortion are relevant.
