If your a christian, and voted for obama...

how can you explain yourselves? How can your vote for a president that is for abortion, and gay marriage? That is obviously not what God wants for this country. Do you honestly think that God will not judge you for that?

  • Ok, well, not a christian here, but you have some wrong info there. Obama is NOT for abortion or gay marriage. I don't think anyone is "for" abortioin...Obama's stance is in the event of rape, incest, or danger to mother's life, it should be an option for a woman. Up to a certain point. He does NOT support partial birth abortions. On the matter of gay marriage, he is not for redefining the definition of marriage. He is for the gay partners to have the same legal rights that heteros are. Its as simple as that. But, on another topic...why should it matter what belief system you have...separation of church and state should be and will be upheld.

  • i can explain myself pretty easily.
    first, do you realize how little effect the president has on abortion rights? sure, obama is pro-choice but there aren't going to be more abortions because he is president just like there wouldn't be fewer abortions if mccain had been elected. there has been a pro-life president in office for 8 years and nothing changed. furthermore, out of the last 30 years a democrat has only been in office for 8. the republican presidents have appointed supreme court justices and guess what--nothing has changed in terms of abortion being legal. it is not a factor for me when voting.
    second, obama and mccain agree on same sex rights for couples so i don't know what exactly you're getting at here. obama is not for gay marriage but for same sex unions and for same sex relationships to be given the same rights as married couples--he and mccain share this view.

  • Wow...to ask this question and HIDE behind ANON...what are you afraid of? Hummmm???? No God WILL NOT hold us accountable or punish us for this! Although I DO NOT agree with abortion it is not MY business who chooses to do so, as long as they were given other options and then make their choice....Gay people...ummm last I checked they are PEOPLE TOO! No I am not even for gay marriage or even people being gay...because that's WHO I AM and WHAT I BELIEVE....but it's none of my business what or how they choose to live...I will not treat them any different.
