When your a MAOBAMA supporter of course you will
say these things.

Ask who he is voting for and what his background
is and you will have your answer.

He is just another Dumb as c-r-a-p schill operative.

Some African American pastors around the nation do not support either President Barack Obama or Senator Mitt Romney, and with six weeks until the presidential election, some pastors are telling their congregations to stay home on Election Day.

----------

Further proof that religion and politics don't mix.

I don't go to church, but if I did and the pastor told me not to exercise my right to vote, I'd tell him to fu(k off.

Strong minds and religion never mixed too well either.

Churches want to be tax exempt, yet they can't resist sticking their noses into politics. Guess they forgot what Separation of Church and State means.

Genesis 11:1-9

New International Version (NIV)


The Tower of Babel

1 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As people moved eastward,[a] they found a plain in Shinar[b] and settled there.

3 They said to each other,“Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said,“Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”

5 But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6 The Lord said,“If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.

7 Come, let us go down and CONFUSE their language so they will not understand each other.”

8 So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city.

9 That is why it was called Babel[c]—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

----------

When you combine this lovely tale with forbidding Adam and Eve to eat from the Tree of Knowledge, you get a god that wants his people stupid, uncooperative and unable to communicate with one another.

And that's just in Genesis.

That's religion for ya.

When will people realize that churches and organizations do not vote. It is people that vote whether they are religious or not. People are at liberty to vote or not to vote their conscious.It is up to the voters if they want to support a canidate.

I know what Freedom of Speech means, and advocate it strongly. Guess you forgot what Separation of Church and State means, though. Churches have NO business encouraging their congregation NOT to vote or telling them WHO they should vote for. As individuals, Pastors, Priests, Rabbi have the right to vote as they please, but cross the line when they use the House of God to influence the Congregation.

Of course then the government has no business telling churches and people where and when to pray...

The Black Pastor who wrongly admonishes other pastors, ought to beware the Wolf in Sheep clothing who travels in disguise as one of them.

IT IS BARACK WHO FIRST INTRUDED ON CHRISTIAN TERRITORY BY FORCING ABORTION AND GAY MARRIAGE. Re-electing a proven fraud who advocates American genocide is not an option.

When Barack engenders a cult following which actively trods on Christians' beliefs and attempts to do things such as remove Christmas, they have a right to fight back. It is quite apparent that Barack desires to be the New God, and to vote for him is to follow a path to hell. See this article and pass around to all. Ask them to do the same. Americans of any denomination and faith need to see this.

The Obama campaign recently asked its followers to write messages on their right hands and, with their hands pressed over their hearts, pledge their allegiance to Obama by posting these pictures on Twitter or Facebook. A number of celebrities such as Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, and Jessica Alba complied.

Of course, for those who are not part of the Obama cult, such actions, as well as the very request, are CREEPY. The act seems more an expression of quasi-religious adoration of and not just political support for Obama. But for one who has read the New Testament closely, the actions are much more ominous.

I recently taught the book of Revelation to a local church Sunday School. In Revelation 13:16-17, the BEAST requires all to receive A MARK ON THEIR FOREHEADS or THEIR RIGHT HANDS to buy and sell. The mark is the number of the beast, 666, based on the numerical value of the beast's name.

Now, I do not consider Barack Obama to be the Beast of Revelation. Presumably, the Beast as the preternatural earthly embodiment of satanic evil would be more competent than the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. But I do believe that by such a request -- i.e., the demonstration of allegiance to Obama through the temporary and voluntary marking of the right hand, Obama and his administration betray their inner character.

The Obama campaign has launched its “For All” campaign, encouraging supporters to take pictures of themselves with their hands on their hearts and a note explaining why they support President Obama.

Politicians go to black churches, black organiztion to get support, saying vote for me. They go on tv and do not vote for the other person, vote for me. If a pastor say to a congegation do not vote for that person because of his record,he has a right to speak to the same body that politicians are trying to get a vote from. He has freedom of speech and freedom of religion. He is not imposing on government a religion.

The government honors separation of church and state. I object to having any form of religion being taught in Public schools, or religious articles in government buildings. If you want that, then send your children to religious schools, and let's allow ALL religions to put up religious articles in government buildings. I am sure you wouldn't mind the Muslim religion setting up the Quoran on the steps of any building, right?

All religions? So you object to them teaching Islam in schools?

Interesting...and how is that teaching? To completely take out the role of churches and religion which this country is founded on the freedom of religion and one of the reasons for the revolutionary war is to take out a big chunk of history out of this country. Now if you're teaching how to be a muslim or christian...I agree unless you're in a private school government has no business teaching that.

Are you not aware that those who go to churches and Temples and other places of worship tend to believe what they hear by the great talking up on stage called a Preacher, Rabbi, Priest, Pastor and other names?

Pardon me for expressing my personal belief but the flock follows the leader.

Or put another way the sheep vote as they are told or in this case won't vote at all.

If those black pastors don't like Obama tell them to vote for another on the ballot and dump the one they don't like.

But to say do not vote and heaven forbid he wins again what are they going to do, blame those who voted or blame their flock for not voting him out?

WRONG!!! They have EVERY RIGHT to coach their flock as they deem appropriate. Just like their flock has EVERY RIGHT to vote as they please, whether its the same as their pastor or otherwise. That is called freedom of speech and they have a constitutional right to articulate it, regardless of your opinion.

As usual, you ultra-left liberals carry it way too far, and the rationale you use is seriously flawed. Most amusing how you twist reality to fit your agenda, oops, wait, that's what your ilk does!!

Carrying it further than it needs to be, as usual. Its their church, their flock, and if you object or are jealous - too bad! Your whine is about government bldgs, the thread is about
