So, I received this in an e-mail today from someone I very much love and admire. The title was “Prayer can move mountains, why not Obama?”

Being dismayed recently when a family member of mine said to me with great resignation that Obama will take the presidency. These words came from someone who in the past has been a great prayer warrior.
What is happening was my question???  Why are we Christians settling and not issuing a battle cry and falling to our knees and taking our country back?
We allow ourselves to be stripped of the right to pray at school functions and in school, we have the 10 commandments removed from government places and are told we cannot pray in school, all the while providing public prayer places for Muslims.  What in the world is going on and why are we being apathetic?
Why aren’t we praying?  Our God is a mighty God who is waiting patiently for us to raise our voices to heaven to stop the tide of the anti-Christ actions in our world today.  Now we find we have a charismatic candidate for president who does not respect our flag and refuses to wear one on his lapel except when it becomes politically expedient and whose own wife and pastor that he loves profess to have strong anti-white feelings, and we sit back and say “it is a given, we can do nothing.”

There has never been a time in 2000 years that we can do nothing, never a time that we must sit back and allow the evil in men’s and women’s hearts to take over our world.  We should be very afraid because our apathy is leading us to perdition.  

It is time for all Christian Americans to raise the battle cry and take our nation back.  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 to “Save us O Lord.”  We have the power t o 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.

We are great at passing stories and pictures around the internet, but where are our prayers and prayer warriors praying to stop this tide of Barak Obama?  God parted the red sea, Jesus raised himself from the dead, and we can bring our country back to its Christian roots and stop the move to the rise of Muslims in our country.  We can stop our country from being “under Allah,” but we must begin to pray, to pray as if our country and our lives depended on it, because they do.  We can stop all these atrocities against God’s commands that have taken root in our country through something as simple as sincere prayer, a call to God to deliver us, to forgive us our sins of apathy an d to protect us from the evil that is upon us.

Okay prayer warriors, here is your challenge, start those prayer chains.  Get the spiritual power working on our behalf and stop Barak Obama the proper way, by calling on our God to save us from the deception that charismatic preaching is using to lead us on the wrong path.  Stop  those who would take God out of our country and our government.  Raise up good men to lead us and protect us.

George Bush is being buffeted because he has fought a holy war against the evils that attack us and we should not be surprised because a prophet is not honored in his own country.  But we should not rest on our laurels and allow ourselves to be taken further off the path of Christianity and to have God removed from our presence in our schools, courts, government and businesses.  Invite God into the fray.  Ask that His power rest upon us and give us the victory.  Ask him to raise up a mighty arm y to defend us and to protect our country as he did in days of old.  Let us be victorious beginning NOW.  The battle is His but we must call on Him without ceasing and unite our voices and hearts in prayer and fasting.

Please pass this around to all people of prayer that you know and maybe, just maybe a more eloquent person of prayer will write something better and more inspiring and even the rocks will shout that Jesus is Lord and our Mighty God is with us, bringing the victory for us and ultimately for Him.

At first I thought, you know, you have GOT to be kidding me. But the more I thought about it, the more completely pissed off I got. Aside from being full of untruths, this e-mail is so offensive I just don’t know how to process it. I’m not the most politically correct person in the world, but Jesus. So, naturally, my next reaction was what the FUCK?

I just want to tell the person who forwarded it to me…and the people who forwarded it to her…that if they look beyond their own stupid noses, they’ll see that America is not an entirely white and entirely Christian nation infiltrated by the insidious Muslim. Good grief. We’re a global nation, comprised of people from all different backgrounds. You don’t want to be shoehorned into their religion? Fine. Just don’t expect them to be shoehorned into yours. And please, realize that just because you happen to be Christian (though you’re not really practicing its tenets too well here…), everyone else on earth is not obligated to be the same. I don’t believe that you should have to make so many concessions not to offend someone that you feel guilty celebrating your holiday of choice, but neither should that person be made to feel as though he or she is a freak for not celebrating it. It’s a fine line. But this? This is racist. It doesn’t take into account the separation between church and state, AT ALL. George Bush is fighting a holy war? Give me a motherfucking break.

So, that’s what I wanted to say. What I actually did was acknowledge that we agreed to disagree on this issue, and ask that I be excluded from any future political e-mails, because this one is untrue and so offensive. Yeah, I know. It’s a cop-out. But I’m tired. I’m tired of trying to defend what is, to me, the logical choice to people who believe that God and politics can’t be separated, who are willing to believe twisted facts, and who want to call upon a God who supposedly urged people to “judge not, lest ye be judged” to keep the best presidential candidate of my entire generation out of office because he’s not the whitest of white bread. You know damn well that’s what it boils down to. So I’m done with it. You vote your conscience. I’ll vote mine. And we’ll see who most people agree with come November.
