News of Obama’s 2006 speech, in which he again shows great hostility to evangelical Christians (and sends a sharp jab at Dr. James Dobson), seems to be the hot news today. His statements in that speech (like most of his other statements) are outrageous and dangerous. CitizenLink has clips from the speech, as well as Dr. Dobson’s response to Obama’s attack. I think Dobson may’ve misunderstood Obama’s comment that he was associating him with Al Sharpton, but it was still clearly hostile to Dobson and what he (and most evangelicals) believes in.

World Net Daily has an interesting piece about some comments made by Obama. Obama said:
“Whatever we once were, we’re no longer just a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”
True, America is a diverse nation, now filled with peoples of many different religious backgrounds. But Obama’s comments imply a sense of hostility toward conservative Christians, especially when paired with this comment:
“Somehow, somewhere along the way, faith stopped being used to bring us together and started being used to drive us apart. It got hijacked. Part of it’s because of the so-called leaders of the Christian Right, who’ve been all too eager to exploit what divides us.”
Are there fanatical, hate-filled people who rail against gays, liberals, Muslims, and a lot of other people? Some, of course. But liberals like Obama are very quick to accuse those who (gasp) actually have convictions about morality and absolute truth. The problem (which I was reading about earlier today) is the liberal atheistic mindset that sees acceptable “religion” as some fuzzy God-accepts-everyone-whatever-they-believe unitarianism. But if Jesus was the Way, the Truth, and the Life as He said He was, then that means Muslims who say Allah is the only god and Mormons who say Joseph Smith has brought us a new testament are wrong. If A is true, B must be false. Does that mean we hate each other? Not at all…we simply say what we believe, in the belief that telling others what we believe to be truth is the ultimate display of love. If anyone dares condemn sin or voice a belief in one way to God, liberals are quick to dish out some friendly terms like “hate speech” and “hate monger.” Why are liberals so hateful against those who simply don’t accept other faiths as true, but defend the rights of terrorists who delight in beheading infidels?
Democrats in Congress are trying to censor free speech (again), and it’s time to do something. Enjoy talk radio? Christian radio? Rush Limbaugh? Sean Hannity? James Dobson, and many other great religious broadcasters? I do. Speak up.
America was founded on principles of religious freedom and tolerance. Those who first ventured here did so to gain the right to worship God freely, as they believed was right. They came so their voices could be heard, so they could say what they believed. In the past, you spoke your mind. If somebody disagreed with you, they had the right to speak out and disagree. If someone wants to disagree with Rush or anyone else, let them start their own show, or call in and argue, if they have the guts. The government has no right to mandate broadcaster viewpoints. After all, liberal media sources aren’t fair and balanced. Why can the liberal media spew forth their socialistic agendas, and Hollywood can promote lewdness, gratuitous violence, profanity, etc. under the guise of “free speech” but conservative broadcasters can’t freely speak their minds?

I just got wind of the new Myst Movie project, and I’m really excited (check out the press release). After watching the video submitted to Cyan and seeing the support they’re getting from the pros (much to my joy, even John Howe), I think it looks really promising. I enjoyed the games a lot, but what really moved me was the novels. The tales spun from the minds of Rand and Robyn Miller will always stay with me, and I look forward to watching them move to the big screen.

Zimbabwe has descended into all-out chaos. Inflation is screaming to the stars. Food is nonexistent. People are starving, and if they speak out, they’re butchered for being disloyal to the government. The people have made their voices heard loud and clear, but Mugabe refuses to back down. Pray for the people of Zimbabwe, that God will provide the innocent with food until the government is dealt with. Why the UN or the US doesn’t try to step in and deal with this problem is beyond me. It’s time to quit having “talks” and act.
Update 6/25/08: Word condemnation of Zimbabwe grows (Good article and videos from MSNBC).
Our wonderful government is blaming oil companies for high gas prices, but they don’t want you to know that while we’re supporting our enemies at the pump, we’re sitting on vast oil reserves that could dramatically help our economy. Some in congress seem to be trying to cripple our country—it’s time we spoke up.
American Solutions has a petition that will let our voices be heard. 100,000 are signing daily. Join the effort and tell them you want to drill now and pay less.
Worried about some of the things you’ve heard about Obama, but are still considering voting for him?
Watch this first.
Some of it you’ve no doubt heard before, but these are serious things to consider. From all indications, Obama is an all-out socialist who could seriously harm our country. Consider your vote carefully.
Update, 6/10/08 – And another thing!
Just in case you missed it, Obama obviously ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed, if his non-rehearsed speeches are any indificaterer. I mean indicator.
