For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat,
I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink,
I was a stranger and you invited me in,
I needed clothes and you clothed me,
I was sick and you looked after me,
I was in prison and you came to visit me....
I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.

- Matthew 25:35-40

Obama wrote:“I have repeatedly said that I think it’s entirely appropriate for states to restrict or even prohibit late-term abortions as long as there is a strict, well-defined exception for the health of the mother. Now, I don’t think that “mental distress” qualifies as the health of the mother. I think it has to be a serious physical issue that arises in pregnancy, where there are real, significant problems to the mother carrying that child to term.”

Senator Obama has never supported gay marriage.

Barack Obama told the Chicago Tribune, “I'm a Christian. And so, although I try not to have my religious beliefs dominate or determine my political views on this issue, I do believe that tradition, and my religious beliefs say that marriage is something sanctified between a man and a woman.”

Senator Obama does support civil unions and civil rights for gays and lesbians.

I'm sorry but you don't put your religious beliefs to the side to make everybody happy.

Jesus didnt come to this earth to put what he had to do to the side----and if we are suppose to live like him then we don't need to compromise.

There is to much of that going around to make everybody happy.

Sometimes people may need to hear the truth. Will that make you president? Maybe not but at least the truth was brought to the table.

I agree with your scripture about feeding the poor but God also don't want you to "Sit on the fence" either and stay in the middle.

Your either for or against.

Jesus didnt come and die on the cross for you to not let your religious beliefs to "Dominate" your political views.
