Obama gives me the creeps

I haven't cared too much about politics because frankly, I believe God rewards or punishes the nations with the leaders He allows us to have. I never could've voted for Romney becuase I can't vote for a man who believes he's going to be a god one day. That's the original lie that Satan told Eve. "Ye shall be as God,". I've met several nice Mormons but so what? The bottom line is what they believe and that aint Christianity.
Now Obama has a positively messianic vibe going on and it gives me the creeps. When I talk to other women about him they act like he's Elvis or as hot as Bear Grylls. It's been said that American women vote for their fantasy man. They either pick the ideal daddy, (Ike, Reagan) or the dream lover, (JFK, Clinton). I guess it's too late to repeal the 19th ammendment----just kidding---maybe. But back to Obama. When I read an Obama quote like this:
We are the hope of the future; the answer to the cynics who tell us our house must stand divided; that we cannot come together; that we cannot remake this world as it should be.Because we know what we have seen and what we believe - that what began as a whisper has now swelled to a chorus that cannot be ignored; that will not be deterred; that will ring out across this land as a hymn that will heal this nation, repair this world, and make this time different than all the rest - Yes. We. Can.
And when I see stuff like this:


I am once again reminded how Hitler came to power in a country full of smart, sophisticated people. I mean, damn, somebody cue the little German boy to start singing "Tommorow belongs to me."

Dymphna, much as I appreciate your blog overall, I think when it comes the subject of "who not to vote for," you come close to being as shallow-minded as the female American voters you deride in this post.

I cerainly won't argue with what you've said about Obama. But you've stated in the past that you won't vote for Guliani because he's been divorced and remarried and thus is living in sin accoring to Catholic doctrine, and here you say you wouldn't have voted for Romney because he's a Mormon. Really, what are you looking for in a president? Does he have to be a Catholic in good standing who prefers the Latin mass and who's led an exemplary life in every way? Is everyone else to be excluded?

To be clear, I'm not criticizing you for being critical of Guliani's personal life, or of Romney's theological beliefs. But I don't think you should care so much what a man running for president has done in the past or whether he thinks he'll be a god in the next life. You should care about what he's going to do AS PRESIDENT. I'd vote in a Mormon, a Hindu, a Baha'i, a pagan, or an atheiest, if I became convince that the heretic or heathen in question was going to put an end to Roe V. Wade.

Andy, I'd love to see a real Catholic be president. We've never actually had one before but that isn't my primary interest. I want a strong man who will fight Roe v. Wade and who will do what is necessary to prevent an American Hiroshima.

I just couldn't vote for Rudy as much as I would've wanted to. That would've been participating in his public sin. I couldn't vote for a Mormon because if he thinks he's going to be god in the next life, he might not be so squemish about being loose with the nukes in this one.

Dymphna: I totally agree with you in this entry. I certianly can not vote for someone who believes he'll become God. And I most definately don't vote for a person with such a cold heart to kill babies that survive an abortion. I also agree that we can't support someone in public sin.

I would love to see a Catholic (no, JFK doesn't count, as was in Public sin, thus informally excomunicated) who will take down Roe v. Wade as well.

I happen to disagree with the Bishops' statement that there are conditions where you can vote for a pro-choice politician.

There are no exceptions, a vote for a pro-abortion politician is a vote for public sin, and a participation in dissent from the Church's teachings, I thus in good conscience if it came down to 2 pro-abortion politicians would leave my ballot blank, or put in a write-in canidate if possible. The Right to Life is the number one issue, not how much money we have :)

HOLY SMOKES! That picture is downright scary! It reminds me of Communist propaganda!!

Andy Nowicki: What lies in a man's heart is going to surface in his leadership. Therefore if we vote a man into office who holds beliefs and practices that go *against* the Law of God we are sowing the seeds of Satan, end of story.

I refuse to vote ANY man (or woman) into the office of President that goes against the Law of God. Am I narrow-minded? You better believe it! The gate to Christ is a *narrow* gate and the path to destruction is open and wide. So you go ahead and have an "open mind" and I'll pray for you.

God bless!

In the last debate, Obama (who also said this in April 2007) said that his biggest mistake was voting to save Terri Schiavo! I guess you can't expect any different from such a pro-abortion politician!

I'm appalled that you can call yourself a Christian and say such horrible things about other religions. It is not the idea of becoming gods that Mormons are focused on, it is the goal of eternal progression. How can you say that members of THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTS are not Christians? His name is in the title of the church. Shame on you for being one of the many people that enable and further bigotry. Perhaps you should do us all a favor and keep your bigoted, shallow thoughts to yourself instead of promoting them further.

Maybe a wee bit unfair to Hitler.

I mean, he is not around while Obama and Putin are basically competing on who has the best gematria for 666.

Well, Prince Harry is also in the competition, it would seem.
