Obama through Christian eyes

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama through Muslim Eyes

Submitted by The More Educated Anne (Virgin Islands, U.s.), Aug 27, 2008 at 05:34

If you are born of a Jewish mother, Jews see you as Jewish, even if you were not raised in Judaism. If you are born of a Moslem father, Moslems see you as Moslem, even if your father did not raise you. (Like the child of Yassir Arafat whose mother is Christian and he has no father.)

If you are born of a Christian mother, Christians see you as Christian, even if your mother converts to atheism. And if you are baptized and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal saviour, which Obama did. If you have Scotch/Irish heritage like Obama (Cheney's cousin), Europeans see you as having European heritage. If you have a Spanish name, Hispanics may think you are Latino. If you have some or any African heritage, African Americans see you as black. If you are born in the Panama like McCain, of American parents, Americans see you as American. If you are born with Native American blood, you have claims to the reservation.

In Barack Obama, everyone in the world sees himself. Having presidents with no Moslem exposure is clearly not working for us now, and is not working for the middle east and Israel. That, among a multitude of other reasons, including his academic brilliance, his judgment with respect to diplomacy before aggression, and his wisdom about the disaster of entering Iraq, is why the time is now for Senator Barack Obama to become president.
