Kim Lehman, an Iowa Republican Committee woman, believes that President Obama is a Muslim. By contrast, she believes that no one would question her Christianity. Well, I do. For anyone who will not accept a person’s professed belief, and then attempts to exacerbate the situation, is no Christian.
While it may not be due to a lack of education for those who disbelieve Obama, it does have something to do with pure, unadulterated hate for anyone to continue to question any person’s professed beliefs.
Here is an example using their illogic: Anyone who professes to be a Christian, but goes out of their way to placate Jews is not a Christian, but actually a closet Jew? That “logic” confounds me.
This is going beyond just the fringe because in an interview with CNN, Franklin Graham applies this same illogic. He apparently does not know Christianity because anyone who willingly accepts the Lord as Savior becomes, by default a Christian. And President Obama has done that.
Ironic, but at first, conservatives attacked him for not being a good Christian by remaining with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, but now they attempt to capitalize on his ”otherness” — he is not an American, he is not a Christian, he is a fascist/communist/socialist — anything other than an American, capitalist.
Where are the moderate conservatives?
