Be careful, God put Pontius in that position and he did what was expected of him. However, Pontius didn't want the job at that moment in time. So if you take the Christian point of view with that button, God might put the choice you don't want in as Pres/V.P.

But, not endorsing Sarah on this, I do believe Governors are better than Senators when it comes to President however you get the good with the bad. Carter, Reagan, Clinton, and Butthead, I mean Bush.

OK, that is hilarious. Now, athat admitted,

Let's let Palin crucify Obama and see if he comes back from the dead to save the world...just a thought since Obama thinks he can walk on water..

Jeremy said...

Obama thinks he can walk on water?! Can you provide me a quote from when he said that?

Susanna said...

Where can someone find this button??!! Seriously... we want to buy a ton of them.

Clever...but wrong.

Jesus was hardly a "community organizer"...He completely turned the world upside down. Jesus didn't host luncheons and organize fund raisers...He exposed sin and provided freedom for all who would receive it...regardless of the cost.

Regarding Pilate, he was so concerned about public opinion, he refused to make a decision one way or another regarding Jesus. Instead of doing what was right, Pilate sought to please the misguided mob by telling them what they wanted to hear.

Obama: "I'm pro-choice but not pro-abortion." Hmmm...sounds more like Pilate than Jesus to me.

d-dawn, to quote Gandhi: ""I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."

As one Christian to another, please step off the soapbox. Fixating on abortion during this election season is like feverishly trying to save your photo albums from the basement while a huge but still (barely) manageable fire is raging in the top story of your house. WAY more is at stake than Roe vs. Wade. This nation as we know it is on the verge of ceasing to exist. Fixating on Roe v. Wade right now is insane. Deal with those kinds of issues AFTER we've made certain that we have stepped off this path we're currently on.

Secure the O2 mask of the person next to you only AFTER you've secured your own. Prioritize.

I like my country. I don't want it to end. It's on the verge of ending. Vote wisely, not on just one issue.

Penny, you completely missed the whole point of my post. It has nothing to do with abortion at all. My point is that Obama, like Pilate, is more concerned about saying what he thinks people want to hear than he is about saying what he actually believes...much less what is right. The abortion quote is simply the example I used to illustrate that fact. He won't even answer simple questions about his beliefs. Like so many politicians (aka - John Kerry) he sidesteps questions and flip flops on issues in his effort to gain votes and favortism.

We don't need a president who wants to "organize" tea parties with terrorists...we need someone who will do the right thing for our nation...even when it's the hard thing to do.

"We don't need a president who wants to "organize" tea parties with terrorists...we need someone who will do the right thing for our nation...even when it's the hard thing to do."

So we totally agree. Thank you for voting Obama. :-)

For a lot of people, not just abortion but reproductive justice in general is the difference between freedom and lack thereof. How dare you call it an issue that can be set aside. All of us have a motivating factor, a driving force, a thing that matters to us in this election. Frankly, a president who is unwilling to step to the plate on the issues that I care about and consider to be fundamental is worrisome to me. It's not that I won't make a balanced decision based on many factors, but I'm not going to ignore it simply because you think it's unimportant.

D-Dawn, I think you may be confusing community organizers with PTA mothers and ladies that lunch.

Community organizers fought to end slavery. They guided escaped slaves along the underground railroad and led women to march in the streets for the right to vote. They rallied labor unions to stop factory's from exploiting the labor of children. In the 1950's and 60's, community organizers led bus boycotts in Brimingham and marches in Selma Alabama.

In the history of this country, community organizers have had dogs set upon them, been doused with fire hoses, and yes, killed by assassins bullets. When you disparage community organizing as organizing "tea parties" you disparage people like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, John Lewis, and Martin Luther King. Its insulting and demeaning.

Do you want to know who organizes tea parties? The mayor of a town with just 6,000 people. I would know - my mother is one.
