How can Mennonites support Obama? He is very liberal and supports abortion rights. I thought that Mennonites were 75% Republican and that life was held sacred. I am not Mennonite; just an observer, however young mennonites seem to gravitate to Obama even though their elders were Bush supporters.

Abortion is murder. Obama deserves to lose the election.

Many of us support Obama for 2 main reasons
1. No pro-choice president (even Obama) will get enough support to push abortion farther-just as no pro-life president has been able to get Roe v. Wade overturned. That issue is at deadlock.
2. Advancing peace and ending poverty are 2 of the most important goals of the church. Obama is stronger than McCain is, regarding these 2 issues
