A real Christian would not run for a socialist Democratic party.

in response to reader comment: Obama's Freudian slip: "My Muslim faith

Obama is not a Christian. Socialism is diametrically opposed to all the teachings in the Bible. Teachings such as: "if a man will not work, neither should he eat": "every man must bear his own burden" : "the parable of the workers in the vineyard', taught that Christ believed in 1: private property rights 2. the employment contract was between owner and individual worker and was binding 3. no unions. I could go on, but real Christians believe in smaller government and less government interference in the lives of citizens; an unintrusive government that limits its actions to essentials and leaves its citizens to make their own decisions about their own money taxing only for bare necessities, not a baby sitting agency. Real Christians believe in individual responsibility and compassionate individual assistance to the poor by private funds, not government-extorted funds.

There is a large section of people that calls itself christian but they are not, they are socialist...they are not in any agreement with the Bible at all and can find no justification for their beliefs therein, either in the Old or New Testaments, and therefore they are using the term christian deceitfully. Therefore if Obama claims to be christian he is a false or deceived one.
