Open Letter To McCain/Palin Supporters

After receiving Smears E-mails in their Inboxes, two Obama supporters responded with the messages below. Those emails were sent to me and I am sharing it with you as another prayer request. We pray that lies be exposed in this election and that the truth prevails.

The first email refers to the so called "One Issue Vote":

I am a Christian Supporter of Senator Obama. I read your smears and self-righteous emails. Please answer me some questions: why is it that the Republican party only talks about abortion and of course gay marriage, during election season? After November 5th those issues disappear and then the party of "morals" resorts into their usual policies. You know social Darwinism, "the survival of the fittest/richest". Why is it that you on the religious right have the nerve to say Barack Obama has no morals , yet you see no problem with John McCain leaving his disabled wife for Cindy McCain. Barack is a family man. He has both of his children in wedlock with one woman. Who gave you the right to sit on high and judge him.? Romans 14 speaks of the dangers of condemning other believers (Rom 14:10). So why do you condemn another believer? Why do you look down on another believers? Remember we will all stand before the judgment seat of God ( verse 12). Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God. So let's stop condemning each other.

On another point, I completely understand and respect the views of those that are pro-life and so does Sen. Obama, to that point. This is the deal, lets pretend McCain-Palin win. Do you realize they will have a majority Democrat congress to deal with? They will not be able to confirm ultra conservative judges even if they wanted to. Furthermore, there is nothing in John McCain's past votes, as far as judges are concerned, that has proven he would appoint ultra conservative judges. I personally think that because of McCain's vindictive nature, which has been well documented, he will probably turn on conservatives once he's elected. Face it, conservatives has been really nasty to him over the years. He has flip-flopped on everything else. Why wouldn't he screw you guys once he doesn't need your votes anymore? I wouldn't blame him. Think about this for a minute, you guys have been pawns for the Republican party for years. They only care about your issues every 4 years. You've had a pro-life president for 8 years, to no avail. This culture war stuff is a tired waste of time. Face it, this country is going to change whether you like it or not. Young people are voting for Obama 3-1 over McCain. You know what that means? These kids will grow up democrats. There will be so few conservatives that you all will become irrelevant. Face it, you all did it to yourselves with your intolerance. Young people have seen the "Right" get into politics and have been turned away from you all. Unfortunately, as a whole, more people are turning away from religion in this country, because of how the right has behaved. The negativity and self-righteousness , the "my way or the highway" attitude, and "if you don't think the way I do, you are my enemy!" People are tired of that. There are more issues Christians should be concerned about like the poor and the sick. I'm not saying God likes it when babies are being killed. I'm just saying no where in my interpretation of the Bible have I gathered it to be our life's mission as Christians, to stop abortions. There's not a verse that even says it emphatically. When I find a verse that says we can't be pro-choice and Christian or vote for some one pro-choice even if we are pro-life, I will let you know. Meanwhile, I am sticking with Barack Obama. You know, the guy that really has family values and has used his entire adult life to help the least of these. Have a nice day!

The second email is entitled "The things I find hypocritical about Palin/McCain supporters":

I'm a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight...

* If you grow up in Hawaii , raised by your grandparents, you're "exotic, different."
* Grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers, a quintessential American story.
* If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.
* Name your kids Willow , Trig and Track, you're a maverick.
* Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.
* Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded.
* If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience.
* If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive.
* If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.
* If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, and have NEVER BEEN BAPTISED, you're a Christian.
* If you teach children about sexual predators, you are irresponsible and eroding the fiber of society.
* If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state's school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're very responsible.
* If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent America 's.
* If you're husband is nicknamed "First Dude", with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn't register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that hates America and advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.

OK, much clearer now.
