I think you a rasist preaching the word of god. Please read Matthew 7. You continiously used the word of God to cover your view as beign rasist.

Obama will win and you and your rasist few in your churh cannot stop him because he is a firm beliver in god.

I am ashame of you, a learned man to be thinking so negatively.

The pastor and members need to check their background. All the people in the South have a hint of black blood, because the white master made babies with the Slaves which resukted in many mixed babies those babies grew up married and had babies of their own which just might be you. I love the saying "Sweep around your door before attempting to sweep around 'mine' or others."

Did you know that the band which put on that free concert in Portland where 75000 people showed up and Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s sycophantic minions want us to believe those people were there simply because of him?

Yeah, that band.

Anyway, you’ll be interested to know they frequently use the Soviet Anthem in their concerts.

The Decemberists, the Indie rock band that opened for Barack Obama’s Portland, Ore., rally on Sunday that drew an estimated 75,000, often opens its own shows with the National Anthem of the now-defunct Soviet Union, according to Wikipedia.

In its entry on the Decemberists, Wikipedia further explains:

“The band’s use of the National Anthem of the Soviet Union, as an introduction at many concerts has sparked controversy as it is seen by some as an endorsement of the repressive Soviet system. The name Decembrist refers to an 1825 revolt over the Imperial Russian succession, and is not related to the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917.”

The Decemberists’ front man, Colin Meloy, did a musical endorsement of Obama on YouTube, which includes the lyrics:

…he will shatter the putrescence and complacency of the bourgeoisie…”

“The bourgeoisie” is a standard Marxist term used to describe the middle class.

WHY did Obama attend Rev. Wright's church throughout his WHOLE adulthood and only leave when being there threatened his campaigne? If he was truly honest about himself he would have A- stayed there and defended his right to worship freely, or B-left a long time ago on account of the way Wright and himself "Don't feel the same way."

Is it legal for Judge Tracy Carroll to be married to Lt Billy Flurry who works for the Aiken County Sheriff's Office? LT Flurry has a number of officers who present there case in her courtroom for warrants, arrests, hearings, trials, etc. It's hard to believe that she is able to conduct impartial and independent hearings given that she's sleeping with law enforcement. This just doesn't seem right from an ethical point of view??? Can somebody help Aiken?
