Comments on: Colin Powell criticizes fellow Republicans, backs Obama http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2008/10/19/colin-powell-criticizes-fellow-republicans-backs-obama/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: DG http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2008/10/19/colin-powell-criticizes-fellow-republicans-backs-obama/comment-page-1/#comment-382774 Thu, 23 Oct 2008 21:10:57 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/trail08/2008/10/19/colin-powell-criticizes-fellow-republicans-backs-obama/#comment-382774 Obama is no Christian. True Christians don’t hate white or black people. He sat in a white hating church for 20 years. He advocates abortion in every form no matter how gruesome. He calls himself a uniter and he is more devisive than anyone. He never answers his critics he only blame shifts and so do his serrogates. They call the conservative right bigotted and hateful, yet there has been 100 times more hate coming from the left. People like Sandra Bernhard talking about her black brothers gang raping Sarah Pahlin. Hollywood loves Senator Obama because he’s an actor too. We need to remember everyone is entitled to an opinion but with Obama and his followers only if you agree with him. They want to silence any and all opposition. That should scare the heck out of all of us.

As for Drew’s criticism of Christians, he doesn’t have a clue what real Christians do for the poor, naked, hungry, and sick. Over 40 million unborn fetus gone so far. They don’t need shoes, cars,books, school, doctors, lawyers, teachers. Who knows who they may have been or what they may have invented.

You are the kind of so called “Christians” that make the rest of us look stupid and ignorant. Funny thing about you so called Christians is that you care so much about an unborn fetus yet you have no problem turning a blind eye to ones that are born into poverty and the tens of thousands of lives lost in the needless Iraq invasion. After 8 years under one of the worst administrations in US history, I find it absolutely hysterical that you still deem Bush Christian-like.

Powell realizes that his party is sunk and did the only logical thing by jumping ship. The election will be a landslide for Obama and it will be fun watching the religious right crying into their bibles while their ship runs into the proverbial iceberg.

Hussein Obama is not a christian as Colin Powell states. A Christian is a person who is born again, repents or changes his or her life for the better and lives everyday following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. In Ecclesiastes Chapter 12: 13-14 saya” Let uus here the conclusion of the whole matter: FEAR GOD and Obeythe commandments. For God will bring every work into judgement, with EVERY SECRET THING, whether it be good or whether it be evil. How can he be a christian if he is pro-abortion. It’s murder..plain and simple. Hussein Obama believes there is more than one way to get into heaven..Wrong. The only way is through His Son, Jesus Christ!! This world Christian is being used very loosely.
I doubt very much that Hussein Obama has even witnessed to anyone and bring them to the Lord Jesus Christ. So don’t go telling me that Hussein Obama is a Christian. It is an Insult to Christians like myself. But I do pray for him because that’s what christians are supposed to do. And I forgive him for what he stands for. I do not judge him because he will be judged in the end by the Great Judge. Fear God!!

You say that since 9/11 we have had no terrorist attacks what was Antrax? are you simple blind to the fact that all that American money that Suddam had came from some source in America. What are you talking about what about Fla in 2004, was the vote ever correct. How can you support some one who has backed Bush 90% of the time, I can see a few errors but not that many and what makes you think that he has all of sudden changed. Put your thinking caps on. I really think some of you would put anybody in the white house as long as he is not Black. It’s not about Black or White it’s about the truth. All of you who keep writing all this negative stuff how do you sleep at night You should respect Obama because he is a Us Senator whether you vote for him or not. You should respect McCain too, both men have done great things in their lifetime. Mc Cain more than Obama, which is because of the Age difference. Come on you all play fair, this rot gut throat cutting, back stabbing is not good it has brought nations down may the best man Win. Vote for who you think will make the best President for this time. We are tired of the childlishness of you over the age of 18 voters. do what you have to do but shut up will you. Most of you don’t have a clue about McCain or OBama you have not studied either one of them and you have made your decision all on the color of their skins. Or some Superior hogwash, we all bleed red blood and your heart will work just as fine in McCain or Obama body. God is see through and so will you be if, if, if if, if you get to heaven. But remember he is watching you. And you will someday have to bow before him and don’t let it be said that you were not fair to either McCain or Obama. To all of you who profess to be Christian, don’t dig no ditches, if you do you better dig one for yourself.

Thank
you Colin Powell, We needed that confirmation and to all of you who put your trust in Colin Powell, now trust OBama, we are like no other people in the world we will not hold you captive, we will not put on white sheets and come in the still of the night and bomb your children, we will love this nation that we have fought so hard to be apart of. This great nation. Barack Obama will help dispel some of the atrocities that the American people have dealt with. This is the beginning of the drafting in of the gentiles. We are Americans and we are tired of fighting about our color we are the Human Race and we will all be treated fairly with a president who speaks change and brings us all together as one. It has to be done or we will perish. If any of you Believen God you need to stop and pray and fast. God is in charge whether you believe it or not.

Have they moved too far to the right?

Here to answer that question is Minnesota Senator Michelle Bachmann
Senator Michelle Bachmann on Hardball
After viewing her interview, tell me if you think Colin Powell was just being overly sensitive

Is it possible he is wrong again with this endorsement?

If Christians are the backbone of the GOP, their tactics of plain hatred, racism and fear mongering astounds us out here in the real Free World.

If Christ were here to watch their self appointed righteous single-mindedness, I really wonder what he would say. I do not believe He said “to win at any cost, any lie, any hurt you can inflict on your opponent, after all, the ends do justify the means to an end.”

An end to what?

If I were to ponder at this time in my life whether to find a spiritual haven to rest my soul, the frothing hatred spewed from not only the media but from the pulpit, would have me turning away from any group that espouses peace and love and yet, hates their fellow (liberal or independent) man/woman and will burn them and their books because…… only they are right and are the only true patriotic heroes of the new HomeLand USA.

It was written in a Great Holy Book, to turn the other cheek, and for anyone without sin, to cast the first stone. I believe the GOP and far right Christians have re-written the book to read “Stone him first – then pray for his soul” – As long as you believe you are overturning laws that go against your faith, whatever actions you take are justified, in the Name of the Lord

Many people once believed Hitler to be the Lord, and did as he commanded.

And the world has never recovered from the new reality of Man.

“WHEN YOU VOTE REMEMBER 9/11 AND THE MEN, WOMEN, AND CHILDREN WHO WERE KILLED. REMEMBER WHO DID IT AND WHO PLANNED IT AND WHEN THEY PLANNED IT. ALSO REMEMBER THAT UNDER BUSH, WE HAVE NOT BEEN ATTACKED SINCE 9/11 ON OUR SOIL.”

I just needed to say well done to GLR for doing the terrorists work for them.

[TERRORISM]: “acts which are intended to create fear that perpetrated for an ideological goal”
