Feb. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Republican presidential candidate John McCain today publicly thanked two prominent conservative Christian leaders who have rallied to his defense in recent days.
``I was very pleased to see comments made by people like Tony Perkins and Dr. Richard Land,'' McCain told reporters after a rally in Nashville, Tennessee. ``I appreciate the words that they have been using.''
Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, a conservative public policy group, and Land, a leader in the 16- million member Southern Baptist Convention, have criticized McCain in the past. Perkins told the New York Times that he has ``no residual issue with John McCain,'' while Land told the newspaper McCain ``is strongly pro-life.''...
As a lifelong Democrat if Obama gets the Democratic nomination for president and McCain gets the Republican nomination for president then I will be forced for the first time to support the Republican nominee for president because I would rather have a white Republican in the White House over a Black Democrat.
Lisa: Although your concerns are well grounded in questions as to the "Christian" legitimacy of Barack Obama; I would like to tell you that Obama HAS distanced himself from his former pastor's "Nation of [Mohammedanism]" endorsement !
It is basically Obama's former pastor who honored Louis Farrakhan; NOT Senator & Presidential Candidate Barack Obama.
Obama, like any Presidential Candidate, employs Mohammedans, Jews, Roman "Catholics", Buddists, True Born-Again Christians, etc.
So we ought NOT vote for ANY Presidential Candidate who hires people of other religions: if we ARE to follow THIS rule of "No Mohahammedan Employees and/or Volunteers"!
Beware rather of Satanic-Vaticanist covert Roman-"Catholic"-Cultic "Jesuits" who pose themselves as "'Christian' sheep"; when they are indeed & of a truth political-wolves in Vatican-sheep/cheap-"Christian"-clothing !
And, although I must admit that Barack Obama is no Ultra-Conservative Democratic Presidential Candidate or Conservative Church of Christ [Congregationalist] Christian member in Good Standing; his Political Civil-Rights "Religious" involvement equals (or exceeds) that of the "Rev." Jesse Jackson Sr. & Jr.--His Great Political/Religious Sponsors, Supporters, Communicators, Fundraisors & Liberal-Democratic Friends !
Obama is now claiming to be a devout Christian complete with all the right buzz words. BUT, Why did Obama's senior pastor/church give the 2007 Lifetime Achievement award to the leader of the The Nation of Islam via the Trumpet Magazine, which is published by the pastor's daughter with help from church staff!
Of all the people serving the Christian church they honor Louis Farrakhan whose life-purpose is to praise Allah as God? Blasphemy for any Christian! Yet Obama says he's devout.
Obama also knowingly and purposefully employs Nation of Islam members on his staff. A devout Christian would not allow this influence as it violates Scripture.
Beware of wolves in sheep clothing Christian voters.
Here's a link to an article that was written long before his run for president confirming his zeal for abortion and infanticide- yes infanticide. http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=51121

Evangelicals support John McCain that's all well and good.But true Bible-believers should not support him. He is one of those wolves in sheep's clothing. I know that the verse is talking about Pastors and leaders of the church,but true Bible- believers should be able to see through him. I am an un-decided Republican voter and a BIBLE-BELIEVER. Sovreign Grace and King James. I will have to pray very hard for GOD to show me who to vote for. Thank You, Yours in Christ Bruce Lantto
Well, guys, it looks like the presidential race is all over bar the shouting.
We just heard on the news that Barrack Hussein Obama has been declared an Irishman (really...) from the ancient Tipperary O'Bama clan. It is fully expected that the Bishops of Boston will soon declare indulgences for all who vote for him, so youse in Americay will just have to get used to the idea.
There is at least one residual issue with Mr. McCain, I would suggest that you look at the YouTube video, [URL=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7WJeqxuOfQ]]]Immigration Gumballs[/URL] and of course read, [URL=http://www.ianpaisley.org/article.asp?ArtKey=immigration]]]Romanizing America Through Illegal Immigration[/URL]. I wish people say they want to follow in that astrologer guided President Reagan, and instead use Eisenhower as an example. Of course, that won't happen, [URL=http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?currSection=sermonssource&sermonID=11005171618]]]The Believer and Politics[/URL].
