This Kinda Stuff Just Makes Me So Sad

I got this in an email this morning...it's part of a larger letter petitioning Christians to pray against Barak Obama. This fear-mongering, so typical this time of year whether it be from right or left, is just plain sad. Just so disappointing that people call God to be on their side.

Maybe McCain on his own cannot defeat Obama, but our God can and He will if we take to our knees in prayer and raise a mighty cry to the heavens. We have the power to change the course of this election and to keep a man as suspect as Barak Obama from leading our country to who knows where with his message of 'change'; a change which I fear will be away from our Christian ideals, and away from Christ, and further away from one nation under God to one nation under Allah.

Me too. Ignorance at its best.

I can't help but comment on the irony, of course, that God and Allah are the same deity. Both are the God of Abraham. What we ignorantly do not understand is that it is not forced religion that we fear (putting aside the fact that this type of fear-mongering justifies its own political endorsement of religion) but forced change of culture. The same type of thing that causes white flight (as weve discussed before) and nativism. We are confused about the difference between our religion and our culture.

Good Lord. At least they could spell his name properly. It takes a lot of steam out of your cause when you can't correct for poor grammer.
