Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by Judy (United States), Dec 4, 2008 at 15:10

I was born as a Christian,I chose not to be one any longer because of the untruth and this man made bible...........Bush was a Christian while drinking(?)isn't that like mixing oil and water? what true Christian would un-feelingly order a war?......

Here is what we need to RE:address;

"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent,a new nation,conceived in liberty,and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."

Now we are engaged in a great civil war,testing wether that nation,or any nation so conceived and so dedicated,can long endure.We are met on a great battle-field of that war.We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that,that nation might live.

It is altogether fitting and proper that we do this.........

But,in a larger sense,we can not dedicate--we can not consecrate--we can not hallow--this ground.The brave men and women,living and dead,who struggle here, have consecrated it,far above our power to add or detract.The world will little note,nor long remember what we say here,but it can never forget what they did here.It is for us the living rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far nobly advanced.It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us--that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion--that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain--that this nation under GOD shall have a new birth of freedom--and that government of the people,by the people,for the people shall not perish from the earth............. AMEN
