Don't know about you, Gpost, but have you ever heard or seen in print Mr Obama express any such thing as Christ as Lord?
Matthew 7:17 "Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit."
""President Obama has been unwavering in confessing Christ as Lord and has spoken often about the importance of his Christian faith," the leaders wrote. "Many of the signees on this letter have prayed and worshipped with this president.""
The problem these guys have with saying they have "prayed" with Pres. Obama is that this demonstrates they are part of the inner circle of Obama. Obama's inner circle is Liberal - NOT Christian.
2Cor 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols?"
One wonders what people like Bonhoeffer and the apostle Paul would say about the "church" making statements like these. Don't call people down who claim Christ but don't behave as such? Isn't that what we should do? These are scary times.

Operating Procedure of clerical Fascists - suppress dissent or unpleasant questions. Only this time, they take it beyond the organized church to the public sphere. Judge Obama, & other people who claim to be Christians, by their deeds (Jas. 2:18).
And by the fruits Obama appoints you shall know him.
