Why I can't vote for Obama
Verified/Quoted on Snopes.com
By Huntley Brown
Dear Friends, A few months ago I was asked for my perspective on Obama, I sent out an email with a few points. With the election just around the corner I decided to complete my perspective. Those of you on my e-list have seen some of this before but it's worth repeating...
First I must say whoever wins the election will have my prayer support. Obama needs to be commended for his accomplishments but I need to explain why I will not be voting for him.
Many of my friends process their identity through their blackness. I process my identity through Christ. Being a Christian (a Christ follower) means He leads I follow. I can't dictate the terms He does because He is the leader.
I can't vote black because I am black; I have to vote Christian because that's who I am. Christian first, black second. Neither should anyone from the other ethnic groups vote because of ethnicity. 200 years from now I won't be asked if I was black or white. I will be asked if I knew Jesus and accepted Him as Lord and Savior.
In an election there are many issues to consider but when a society gets abortion, same-sex marriage, embryonic stem-cell research, human cloning to name a few, wrong economic concerns will soon not matter.
We need to follow Martin Luther King's words, don't judge someone by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I don't know Obama so all I can go off is his voting record. His voting record earned him the title of the most liberal senator in the US Senate in 2007.
NATIONAL JOURNAL: Obama: Most Liberal Senator in 2007 (01/31/2008)
To beat Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton as the most liberal senator, takes some doing. Obama accomplished this feat in 2 short years. I wonder what would happen to America if he had four years to work with.
There is a reason Planned Parenthood gives him a 100 % rating. There is a reason the homosexual community supports him. There is a reason Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Castro, Hamas etc. love him. There is a reason he said he would nominate liberal judges to the Supreme Court. There is a reason he voted against the infanticide bill. There is a reason he voted No on the constitutional ban of same-sex marriage. There is a reason he voted No on banning partial birth abortion. There is a reason he voted No on confirming Justices Roberts and Alito. These two judges are conservatives and they have since overturned partial birth abortion. The same practice Obama wanted to continue.
Let's take a look at the practice he wanted to continue.
The 5 Step Partial Birth Abortion procedures:
A. Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby's leg with forceps. (Remember this is a live baby)
B. The baby's leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
C. The abortionist delivers the baby's entire body, except for the head.
D. The abortionist jams scissors into the baby's skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the hole.
E. The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child's brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.
God help him. There is a reason Obama opposed the parental notification law.
Think about this: You can't give a kid an aspirin without parental notification but that same kid can have an abortion without parental notification. This is insane.
There is a reason he went to Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years.
Obama tells us he has good judgment but he sat under Jeremiah Wright teaching for 20 years. Now he is condemning Wright's sermons. I wonder why now?
Obama said Jeremiah Wright led him to the Lord and discipled him. A disciple is one in training. Jesus told us in Matthew 28:19 - 20 'Go and make disciples of all nations.' This means reproduce yourself. Teach people to think like you, walk like you; talk like you believe what you believe etc. The question I have is what did Jeremiah Wright teach him?
Would you support a White President who went to a church which has tenets that said they have a ...
1. Commitment to the White Community
2. Commitment to the White Family
3. Adherence to the White Work Ethic
4. Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available to the White Community.
5. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting White Institutions
6. Pledge allegiance to all White leadership who espouse and embrace the White Value System
7. Personal commitment to embracement of the White Value System.
Would you support a President who went to a church like that?
Just change the word from white to black and you have the tenets of Obama's former church. If President Bush was a member of a church like this, he would be called a racist. Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton would have been marching outside.
This kind of church is a racist church. Obama did not wake up after 20 years and just discovered he went to a racist church. The church can't be about race. Jesus did not come for any particular race. He came for the whole world.
A church can't have a value system based on race. The churches value system has to be based on biblical mandate. It does not matter if it is a white church or a black church it's still wrong. Anyone from either race that attends a church like this would never get my vote.
Obama's former Pastor Jeremiah Wright is a disciple of liberal theologian James Cone, author of the 1970 book A Black Theology of Liberation. Cone once wrote: 'Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him.
Cone is the man Obama's mentor looks up to. Does Obama believe this?
So what does all this mean for the nation?
In the past when the Lord brought someone with the beliefs of Obama to lead a nation it meant one thing - judgment.
Read 1 Samuel 8 when Israel asked for a king. First God says in 1 Samuel 1:9 'Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will do.'
Then God says
1 Samuel 1:18 ' When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, and the LORD will not answer you in that day.' 19 But the people refused to listen to Samuel. 'No!' they said. 'We want a king over us. 20 Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles.' 21 When Samuel heard all that the people said, he repeated it before the LORD. 22 The LORD answered, 'Listen to them and give them a king.'
Here is what we know for sure.
God is not schizophrenic
He would not tell one person to vote for Obama and one to vote for McCain. As the scripture says, a city divided against itself cannot stand, so obviously many people are not hearing from God.
Maybe I am the one not hearing but I know God does not change and Obama contradicts many things I read in scripture so I doubt it.
For all my friends who are voting for Obama can you really look God in the face and say; Father based on your word, I am voting for Obama even though I know he will continue the genocidal practice of partial birth abortion. He might have to nominate three or four Supreme Court justices, and I am sure he will be nominating liberal judges who will be making laws that are against you. I also know he will continue to push for homosexual rights, even though you destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for this. I know I can look the other way because of the economy.
I could not see Jesus agreeing with many of Obama's positions. Finally I have two questions for all my liberal friends.
Since we know someone's value system has to be placed on the nation,
1. Whose value system should be placed on the nation.
2. Who should determine that this is the right value system for the nation?
Blessings, Huntley Brown
Huntley Brown, a man of true Chistian character.
These words, although not intended to be spread around the world, show that he does truely love and follow Christ.
Regardless if Obama is elected or not, he still prays for our would-be president. Which is soemthing we all should be doing, especially as Christians. We should be ingulfed in our local government, and we should be praying for whomever is in office. After all we put/allowed them there.
The reasons above are why I also will not be voting for Obama, among others. I don't believe that he is worthy, nor equipped to become president. It isn't up to the government to elect Obama or McCain, it is up to us to decide who will be president.
Who will you vote for?
Just as Huntley wrote above... God doesn't do the following:
1) He doesn't lie.
2) He doesn't contradict Himself.
3) He wont tell one person to vote for Obama, and another to vote for McCain.
4) Because He doesn't lie, go against His own Word and He also doesn't tell one person to vote and another to vote for someone else; He can only tell you one of two things pertaining to this election:
Either vote for McCain, or don't vote at all. And I seriously doubt that He has told anyone NOT to vote.
Given McCain may rub you the wrong way, he may have said something you disagree with or you don't agree with his "Maverick" ideals... the choice here is will you go with God's Word and do as He tells you, or will you ignore His Word and do what YOU think is right for our nation, or the economy for that matter?
Which candidate clearly chooses the side of God's Word more clearly than the other? Of course, hands down, McCain.
How can I say that when McCain himself has done what people would consider non-Christian things or things that go against God's Word... we all are sinners and we can't help but to fail at times. No one on earth is perfect, save Christ of course. This doesn't mean that we should vote for someone who is clearly against God and His Word.
So your choice is clear, if you love God and follow Christ, you must vote for McCain. if you still choose to vote for Obama and follow Christ... you are choosing to disobey God and His Word. You are making the choice to ignore Christ and His sacrifice for your sins. In which case if you don't stand up to liberals and vote against God will as stated in the Bible, you are adding another sin to your life in which Christ died for, therefore reconfirming the fact that He did die for you to make sure that you can be forgiven and go to Heaven.
How can I say this? This is due to what the Bible tells us what God wills. He doesn't want babies to die, he doens't want all of this liberal idealogy on Homosexuality, marriage and other ideas to overrun His children and bring them farther from God and closer to Satan.
The Bible, God's Word, is clear:
God sees even an unborn child as a person (Notice that He refers to each as a child or infant):

The price you pay if you deny God:
[bible]1 Corinthians 6:9-10[/bible]
The Bible is clear on its stance of abortion, homosexuality and other issues. Do you honestly believe that God would support, or want to have Christians support a person in a leadership role who would allow things like this to continue, or who condones such things?
Of course He wouldn't!
Make the right choice and vote for God and Christian values, not against God.
Also, if you see Huntley Brown, thank him for his stance in defending God's Word. God bless Huntley Brown, his familyand the Ministry.
