Re: J. Grant Swank Jr's. Pray for Marxist Muslim Obama

I would just like to opine to Mr. Swank that "Marxist Muslim Barack Hussein Obama and his family" do not need Jesus. The Jesus Barak Obama and his family allegedly found was taught him by another zealous Christian preacher, by the name of Jeremiah Wright.

All President Obama needs is to get his sorry ass voted out of the White House. After that, I don't care where he goes, whether to Heaven or to Hell, so long as he never returns to a second term as President of the United States of America.

However, in case he has forgotten or overlooked them, Mr. Swank is obligated by the laws set out by his "Savior" (not mine, thank you very much), and by his very own overt boast of being a minister of the Christian faith, to accept President Obama's very public testimony that he also is a "follower of Jesus Christ" (to borrow Paul of Tarsus' oft used term). Mr. Swank is aspersing not only a fellow Christian and his entire family (children included), but also the head of state of the United States of America, a country he obviosly feels quite strongly about. To deny President Obama and his entire family (children included) their public confession of a Christian faith is not dissimilar to the racist vitriol used by religious lunatics ranging from Jeremiah Wright all the way back to Martin Luther.

If I understand Christianity in any small measure, it seems to me that Mr. Swank's patriotism is not allowed to intrude upon his reponsibility as a minister of the Christian faith, to show respect to whom it is due. And especially to those who openly confess to following the same "savior Christ" who long ago warned, "Judge not, that ye be not judged."

Mr. Swank should be more concerned, as Christianity also teaches, about his own example before he concerns himself (and his "flock") with the example of others.
