I don't watch national news. I research things that interest me from several different sources. National news is too biased and opinionated and is more entertainment than news. His (former) pastor is not a friend of God. That is what a Christian is. I have heard excerpts of his sermons, which may or may not portray him accurately, but still give me a very bad feeling and tell me that this man is preaching the good news of America (or is it bad? I believe he was damning America at one point). Obama has not given himself over to the Lord. That's something that was obvious in his campaign. Besides, if he had, all the Christian sites and my Christian leaders would have endorsed him. None did. Therefore I stand by my findings. It doesn't really matter to you though, now does it? I will stand with him as a Christian. The Bible directs us to pray for and edify our leaders, and that I shall do. It matters not who won, I'll pray for either just as fervently. I simply wish that McCain won. And, since you brought up Christianity first: the Lord's will shall be done, and it was His will that Obama won this election. That doesn't mean he'll be an awesome president, but it means that everything is in God's control. Now, last time faith and I came into the picture, a huge argument broke out. So let's just leave it where it is. whoops, gotta go.
