Great post, Sofa Sogood.

This is only a detail - Obama's view of the world and his political beliefs are bad enough - but one sentence of yours I find somewhat problematic -

"It's not questioned whether he [Obama] is a Christian now."

Take into consideration Obama's affiliation, and devoton, for twenty years, regarding his choice of a Black Liberation Theology Church; who's pastor, Rev. Wright, was and is an Islamic glad-handing, Louis Farrakhan congradulating, anti-Israel bigot -

"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors, here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love...." - leading theorist of Black Liberation Theology, James Cone

"I do not in any way dissagree with James Cone. Jim is a personal friend of mine." - 9:15 a.m., Rev. Jeremiah Wright at the National Press Club, 4/28/08.

Louis Farrakhan, who was awarded a "Lifetime Achievement" award by Rev. Wright and the Trinity Church, is recorded as calling Jews "satanic" and attributing to Jews the "mind of Satan".

National Press Club, 4/28/08, 9:53 a.m. -

Question to Rev. Wright - "Jesus said I am the way, the truth, and the light. Is Islam the way to salvation?"

Rev. Wright's response - "Jesus also said, 'other sheep I have, which are not in this fold."

Who provided security for Rev. Wright during this National Press Club? The Nation of Islam.

One has to wonder what exactly the Rev. Wright said to Obama that convinced Obama to "convert" to "Christianity".
