True African-American Christians will not vote for Barack Obama

Dr. Martin Luther King's speech "I have a Dream"

Martin Luther King have Different Christian Values from Barack Obama

 

On the night of the 45th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famous speech "I Have a Dream" Senator Barack Obama gave his acceptance speech at the Democratic convention in Denver, Colorado. Many Democrats thought about Dr. King's vision was fulfilled on that historic night. However, not all African Americans agree. "Barack Obama is directly contrary to many positions and beliefs of Martin Luther King, Jr.," says black author William Owens, Jr. "Obama is trying to make African-Americans believe he is the reality of the Dream come true, but he's not. It's a nightmare."

A recent Gallup poll reveals 91 percent of African-Americans intend to vote for Obama. Nevertheless, there are dissenting voices trying to reach their community with a warning about the candidate. Dr. Alveda King, daughter of MLK's younger brother, the late slain civil rights activist Rev. A.D. King, says, "Senator Obama's answer to the ills of society, of higher government spending, weaker national defense, continued tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, and support of gay marriage, are diametrically opposed to everything African Americans truly believe and an anathema to the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."

"It is high time for Black America, White America and all America to stop making their ethnicity such a big deal that we become zealous for our color over being zealous for what is right and what is truth," says Owens.

Mr. Owens, founder of Black Americans for Real Change (BARC), makes it known, "I will not remain silent out of fear of repercussions because it is politically incorrect for Blacks to challenge Blacks." He says one aspect of Obama's candidacy is "intimidation because many people are afraid to scrutinize Obama and speak out because of the race issue." Owens believes Obama is manipulative of African Americans because "in reality he is not a Black American. His heritage is Muslim -- not African American" and calls Obama a pretender and panderer. He points out that the candidate's record "does not remotely parallel the values, traditions and struggles of Black America."

Having studied both MLK and Obama, Owens felt compelled to write a book to challenge African Americans "to look deeper at Barack Obama the man, his voting record, and his position on the important issues facing our country." He urges them not to "put your race before your principles," the truth, your family and your own country. His book, "Obama: Why Black America Should Have Doubts" has one chapter comparing the policies of the two men who are poles apart on many issues. Every American should read this eye-opening book. Owens says, "it is obvious Obama is trying to solidify the Black vote", but he reiterates that any candidate needs to be closely examined.

With Obama's voiced support and voting record for partial-birth abortion and every other pro-abortion bill, Alveda King takes issue with the senator over this topic. From firsthand experience she had before she was "born again" in 1983, King knows the problems a woman can suffer because of abortion. She is now a leader in both the pro-life and civil rights movements. "We can talk about poverty; we can talk about the war; we can talk about teen pregnancy; we can talk about incarceration. However, if we're not allowed to live, we'll never encounter those issues." Although Blacks make up only 14 percent of the population, 40 percent of the abortions in the country are preformed on Black women, thus creating a virtual genocide of African Americans.

King recalls her Uncle Martin saying, "The Negro cannot win as long as he is willing to sacrifice the lives of his children for comfort and safety." For Alveda King, abortion is a civil rights issue. "Every aborted baby is like a slave in the womb of his or her mother," she explains. "The mother decides his or her fate."

"In the shadow of the famous ‘I Have a Dream' speech by my uncle in 1963, as Barack Obama makes his speech in 2008, how can the Dream survive if we murder the children?" asks Dr. King concerning the unborn. "Life was very precious to my uncle and life today is precious."

"Our best interests as Black Americans," Owens says, "...lie in a new direction that reflects our core beliefs and values, not merely a resemblance of someone we look like."

Again quoting her uncle, King says, "‘there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.'" She passionately adds, "This is not the time to be silent; this is not the time to give Barack Obama a free pass! There is too much at stake."

Barack Obama's Bad Moral Position on Abortion and Same-Sex Marriage Destroys African-Americans in America

Here are some shocking statistics about African-Americans. Even though they make up roughly 13% of the American population yet 33% of all abortions are performed on African-American women. That is, one out of every three women having an abortion is an African-American. Do these facts not alarm a Christian? It is the devil's plan to eradicate African-Americans in America. Planned Parenthood, the leading provider of abortion services in our nation specifically targets urban areas with a higher percentage of African Americans. This may seem a bit conspiracy theorist, but the following quotes from Planned Parenthood's founder Margaret Sanger reveal what their true purpose was to be.

On blacks, immigrants and indigents: "...human weeds,' 'reckless breeders,' 'spawning... human beings who never should have been born." Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to immigrants and poor people

On the purpose of birth control: The purpose in promoting birth control was "to create a race of thoroughbreds," she wrote in the Birth Control Review, Nov. 1921 (p. 2)

While he was in the Illinois State Senate, Barack Obama toed Planned Parenthood's line and voted according to their strategy on proposed abortion measures.

In a July 17th, 2007 speech to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund (the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America), Sen. Barack Obama said that he would "not yield" on the issue of a woman's right to have an abortion. He "attacked the Supreme Court decision that upheld the federal partial-birth abortion ban and the nomination of Supreme Court justices who favor overturning Roe v. Wade," reports the Catholic News Service.

On the extermination of blacks: "We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population," she said, "if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." Woman's Body, Woman's Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America, by Linda Gordon

Someone might argue that the viewpoints of Planned Parenthood have changed over the years, but their actions say their views remain steadfast and unchanged. What does all of this have to do with Senator Barack Obama as a presidential candidate? Plenty if you look at his voting record.

Voted against banning partial birth abortion. (Oct 2007)

Voted NO on notifying parents of minors who get out-of-state abortions. (Jul 2006)

Voted YES on $100M to reduce teen pregnancy by education & contraceptives. (Mar 2005)

Barack Obama plainly supports abortion, even though it is the leading cause of death among African-Americans more the heart disease more than Aids, more than violent crime. Abortion is a targeted measure to wipe out African-Americans in America. Obama's stance on abortion alone should be enough to discourage any christian from voting for him but let's look at his voting record concerning the marriage amendment, which would define and protect marriage as a union between one man and one woman.

Vote 163: On the Cloture Motion: A Senate cloture vote on the gay marriage amendment failed, effectively killing the amendment. Voted NO

Barack Obama supports the union of same sex marriages, while Christians shouldn't persecute people based on their sexual orientation, homosexuality is a sin, and endorsing gay and lesbian marriages would bring the judgment of that sin from the partakers of that sin to a national level. God deals with and judges nations today just as he has in the past. If we want the blessing of God to pour out into our nation today as it has in times past we need to protect our nation from committing national sin. If you look at violent crimes , pregnancy in 12-14 year olds, illiteracy levels, un-employment and many other factors since 1963 when we first began taking God out of our society they have all increased astronomically, the only way to reverse these trends is to continue making progress in our government in acknowledging our creator. When we eschew evil and turn back to God our nation will return to the prosperity our fore-fathers saw. Continuing with the theme of restoring our christian identity to our nation, we need judges that will be strict constructionists or adhere to the constitution as it is written without putting their own interpretation on it. Mr. Obama supports the "Living Document" judges, the ones that change their interpretation of the constitution based on their personal beliefs instead of what the founding fathers intended to be enforced. His voting record clearly brings out where he stands in regard to judges. President Bush has appointed 2 judges to the supreme court, both of which are strict constructionists, both of whom Mr. Obama has voted against.

1/31/06 Vote 2: On the Nomination: Confirmation of Samuel A. Alito, Jr. to be an Associate Supreme Court Justice. Voted NO

9/29/05 Vote 245: On the Nomination: Confirmation of John G. Roberts, Jr., to be Chief Justice of the United States. Voted NO

In short Barack Obama stands against every biblical guideline we have for voting, as much as you would love to cast your vote for an African-American president, you have to wait until a candidate comes along that truly represents the true Christian belief system, and the betterment of the African-American community.

Fulfill Martin Luther King's dream by not voting for Barack Obama

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today!"

True Christians will not vote for Barack Obama by the color of his skin because it is racism. True Christian will not vote for Barack Obama because he has a bad moral character.

VOTE NO TO BARACK OBAMA

True African-American Christians will not vote for Barack Obama

Sir,

You obviously have much animosity and disrespct toward the black race. That is very unforetunate, especially considering that you are a minority in this country yourself. The comments that you list above are laden with lies and serve no one. I hope you come to the reality that Barak is a good man with great ideas and the the disposition that we need in a very unstable world that our current president has done much to create. Please realize that this instability will be further amplified by a MaCain administration. You have obviously either been misguided in your understanding of the issues of our country or you are a evil tool of the right. I pray that it is the former and wish you luck in seeing the true light.

Good luck,

Jerome

Thank you for writing. I avoid political debates, but I do have something to say about prejudices.

I was given a link to an amazing video by a black man concerning the song “Amazing Grace”. I changed my hub page to include that video.  I have it on two of my hubs; Grace is Amazing and The Cold within. I discuss my position on Stereotyping, prejudices there.  

Thanks again for writing. ~ eddie

Dear Jerome,

Racism is racial prejudice that a person based his or her decision on the color of a person's skin. Racism is what Dr. Martin Luther King was fighting against, and today it is perpetrated by the people whom he was trying to liberate.  Putting Barack Obama, an ungodly politician who approves of abortion and same-sex marriage in the White House does not help America.  It can only make the nation worse. 

The Democrats try to blame the Bush Administration for the Economic Crisis, they are the ones who created it.  ACORN, the same shady institution that F.B.I. is now investigating for Voter Registration Fraud in thirteen States, pushed the idea of letting poor people buy homes that they cannot afford to pay. Acorn worked with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to complete the deal called Sub-Prime Loan. When the poor homeowners could not pay their mortgages their homes were foreclosed. The banks that made the loans were stuck with hundreds of thousands of foreclosed homes. They had to pay other banks that loaned them the money to finance the building of the homes. This triggered the Economic Crisis.  

Democrats covered up the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac Scam that caused our Economic Crisis.  At a 2004 hearing Democrats attacked the regulations to protect Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (their Cash Cows) that are now destroying our economy because the Democrats let them cheat.”

This financial crisis was created by Obama and his party - the Democrats. What do Obama and Barney Frank have in common besides being Democrats. They both were listed in the top 25 recipients of campaign contributions from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and they both are hypocrites. Obama is number 3 on the the list and Barney Frank is 16. Obama, the candidate of change, was in bed with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac yet he criticizes John McCain,who along with George Bush, tried to fix the problem.”

Jerome, you still think Barack Obama who has a big part in the cause of the present Economic Crisis to solve the problems in the future? No Way!

Please know the facts and write the truth before you attack this Hub.

Yesterday, I had a problem with you hub message. I accidently deleted it. Then tried unsuccessfully to bring it back up. I opened my wife's mail and tried to bring her's up, but again was unsuccessful. I'm wondering if one of Obama's followers have put a block on it so it couldn't be displayed. I read where one of Obama's workers called a lady in Texas and asked if she were going to vote for Obama. She said, "No." A few minutes a couple of secret service agents knocked on her door.

Im still not decided between the two presidential candidate. If we are talking about knowledge in politics Mccain got it. If we are talking about knowledge in

education, Obama got it. Right know Im wondering which one is more God Fearing candidate? Since both presume that they go to church, except Obama lately was kick out by his church for 10 years? The objective is not all person go to church are religous.

John 8:3-5 (NRSV) The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery; and making her stand before all of them, they said to him, ‘Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of committing adultery. Now in the law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?’

In the case of this verse, someone had to overlook the John and only address the woman. There is no justice in this. There is no justice to rebuke the servant and leave the evil master alone that has a bullwhip in his hand, taking layers of skin off the servant's back. The scribes and the Pharisees walked in this form of pretentious righteousness. If you want to rebuke black america, show black america that you can walk righteously first. That righteousness will include telling the evil master to put down his whip! (This is why the Lord's name if profaned. Injustice...).

Wow....there is nothing deeper than love my friend.,regardless of how much hate you express in your little piece here. There are facts, and twisted facts which can be served according to what point you are trying to make. If you want to judge the integrity of Barak Obama.,then I suggest you take a look at his track record(same way you would for any other president). He is not only a good man, but a proffesional and well respected......even McCain respects him 'my friend'....so start showing the brother some respect....for His experience.....Intelligence.....Policies.....and Most Definately for Being the FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN PRESIDENT.


Betsy 8 years ago

First of all, Barack is not an African-American. His heritage is from Kenya and the United States and is mixed, not black. He was raised by his white grandmother because his Kenyan father deserted him, so he's actually more white than black, but definitely not African-American......if it makes any difference


Anti-Obama 8 years ago

Like Betsy said Barack Obama is not african-american at all. Its great how the media today is so obsessed with race that they can't wait to dawn him the next Mlk. I also love it how alot of black people claim to be african-american when they were not even born in africa. Thats like me saying I'm european-american just because my ancesters came from europe. Well thats are liberal media for ya. I dont know about you people but I'm still waiting for the first African-American president. Maybe I'll vote for him or her but I can garantee you I didnt vote for this wanna be were gonna have in office now!!!!


Finally Proud 8 years ago

Unfortunately Betsy and Anti-Obama you're both incorrect. Barack Obama is in fact an African American. Have either of you ever looked up the definition of African American? If not here it is:

a black American of African descent.

that sure sounds like Obama even with his mixed heritage. His father is from Africa. He was born in America. That makes him an African American. And as far as would you be considered a European Americam? yes if your ancestors are from Europe that's what you are. look it up


Anti-Obama 8 years ago

Ok good point finally proud. I'll give you that. But I dont agree with everything you said. I do know one thing and that is Obama's mother is white thus making him half white and you can look that up. I did. So if we go with what your saying we could call Barack Obama a White American, "even with his mixed heritage". So I guess this liberal media and his own campaign just picked his "Afican" side to play up just to get more votes. Thats the truth just turn on CNN. I'll call him the first multiracial president but to call him the first "African-American" president is tottally dimissing his other half of ethnicity like you obviously did. And I guess Barack Obama didnt mind doing it either if it meant a spot in the white house. Thats one of many reasons I didnt vote for this snake that were gonna have in office soon.

It s amazing to read some hubs, how many ignorant and dumb, Americans there are, who like the politics of Bush, the worst president, that this country has ever seen, who s managed to flush a great country, right down the toilet, good luck to all of you, who want more of the same, and how disappointed, you shall, be when our Presidents name is now Barack Obama. Maybe a woman cannot feed and care for one more child, are all of you out there, going to help and contribute to that childs upbringing, and welfare, are you helping the mother with the money needed, or is she forced to live on handouts, and forced to stand in line at a foodbank, to get food for her children, are you there for this poor woman, who cannot provide for her children, are you helping her with food and clothes, for her children, the day that you do more than talk, will surely, be new day. But no, the Republicans don t believe in handouts and helping the poor, it s everyone for oneselves politics, isn t it,??? All children deserve to live well, eat well and fare well, especially in a country like the United States of America, and be loved, and have a safe and secure childhood and upbringing.


Anti-Obama 8 years ago

Minnie before you try to call republicans ignorant and dumb maybe you should read this peice By arkwriter and then really think about who to blame for this economic crisis.

"The Democrats try to blame the Bush Administration for the Economic Crisis, they are the ones who created it.

Trust in God. Republicans or Democrats you don't have to be. What all should seek out to be, is what God would have all to be. For men have and will fail, and everyone who chooses to be of one party or another will always paint a bias picture. Therefore, it may be difficult for some to be totally honest.

people who vote or have voted for obama are under the wrath of God, because they are voting for a baby killer. so that makes them just as guilty.

MLK would not approve of BHO. Folks please wake the heck up!! Both parties both colors are so much into corruption. God allows men to be leaders even bad ones. But make no mistake God has always had a leader in mind for us. Ron Paul is a man that has a message and has had one for over 30 years. Real Americans would vote for him no matter the skin color.


Nicole 4 years ago

Ok.. you all are crazy. Obama is of mixed race. And he has never denied that fact. Truth is for so long, if you had a drop of African American blood in you then that is what you were considered as TO THE GOVERNMENT. Though, I do agree that no man should have to choose which culture they want to 'belong to'. Read up on it. Second, how can you hate Obama for being pro-choice and support Bush for sending troops over to different places to kill? Did Jesus say "Thou shall not kill.. (unless you are being attacked.)??" Excuse me, no he did not. Have you 'Christians' forgotten that no sin is over the other? So many of you ' Christians' pick and choose when to use the bible and when to disregard what it says. Tho I hate to admit it, the seperation of Church and the "Laws of the land" will always and forever be in place. If religious values were used to solely choose a candidate, imagine how chaotic the world would be? Christians would be upset if a Catholic was president. Catholics would be upset if a Muslim was president. Muslims would be upset if an Atheist was president. We as a people much choose a candidate by our beliefs in what they can do for us as a people and seperate what they can do for us as a religious being.

That is all. :)
