Why I Can’t Vote For Obama
By Huntley Brown
A few months ago I was asked for my perspective on Obama, I sent out
an email with a few points. With the election just around the corner
I decided to complete my perspective. Those of you on my e-list have
seen some of this before but it’s worth repeating…
First I must say whoever wins the election will have my prayer
support. Obama needs to be commended for his accomplishments but I
need to explain why I will not be voting for him.
Many of my friends process their identity through their blackness. I
process my identity through Christ. Being a Christian (a Chris t
follower) means He leads, I follow. I can’t dictate the terms, He
does because He is the leader.
I can’t vote black because I am black; I have to vote Christian
because that’s who I am. Christian first, black second. Neither
should anyone from other ethnic groups vote because of ethnicity. 200
years from now I won’t be asked if I was black or white. I will be
asked if I knew Jesus and accepted Him as Lord and Savior.
In an election there are many issues to consider but when a society
gets abortion, same-sex marriage, embryonic stem-cell research, human
cloning – to name a few, then wrong economic concerns will soon not
We need to follow Martin Luther King’s words, “don’t judge someone by
the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” I
don’t know Obama, so all I can go on is his voting record. His voting
record earned him the title of the most liberal senator in the US
Senate in 2007.

Most Liberal Senator in 2007
To beat Ted Kennedy and Hilary Clinton as the most liberal senator,
takes some doing. Obama accomplished this feat in 2 short years. I
wonder what would happen to America if he had four years to work
There is a reason Planned Parenthood gives him a 100 % rating. There
is a reason the homosexual community supports him. There is a reason
Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Castro, Hamas etc. love him. There is a reason
he said he would nominate liberal judges to the Supreme Court. There
is a reason he voted against the infanticide bill. There is a reason
he voted “No” on the constitutional ban of same-sex marriage.
There is a reason he voted “No” on banning partial birth abortion.
There is a reason he voted “No” on confirming Justices Roberts and
Alito. These two judges are conservatives and they have since
overturned partial birth abortion. The same practice Obama wanted to
Let’s take a look at the practice he wanted to continue. The 5 Step
Partial Birth Abortion procedures:
A. Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby’s leg with
forceps. (Remember this is a live baby)
B. The baby’s leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
C. The abortionist delivers the baby’s entire body, except for the
D. The abortionist jams scissors into the baby’s skull. The scissors
are then opened to enlarge the hole.
E. The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The
child’s brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The
dead baby is then removed.
God help him.
There is a reason Obama opposed the parental notification law.
Think about this: You cannot give a child an aspirin without
parental notification but that same child can have an abortion with out
parental notification. This is insane.
There is a reason Obama went to Jeremiah Wright’s church for 20
Obama tells us he has good judgment, but he sat under Jeremiah
Wright’s teaching for 20 years. Now he is condemning Wright’s
sermons. I wonder why now?
Obama said Jeremiah Wright led him to the Lord and discipled him. A
disciple is one in training. Jesus told us in Matthew 28:19 – 20 “Go
and make disciples of all nations.” This means reproduce yourself.
Teach people to think like you, walk like you; talk like you believe
what you believe etc.
The question I have is what did Jeremiah Wright teach him?
Would you support a White President who went to a church which has
tenets that said they have a
1. Commitment to the White Community
2. Commitment to the White Family
3. Adherence to the White Work Ethic
4. Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills
available to the White Community.
5. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for
Strengthening and Supporting White Institutions
6. Pledge allegiance to all White leadership who espouse and embrace
the White Value System
7. Personal commitment to embracement of the White Value System.
Would you support a President who went to a church like that?
Just change the word from white to black and you have the tenets of
Obama’s former church. If President Bush was a member of a church
like this, he would be called a racist. Jessie Jackson and Al
Sharpton would have been marching outside.
This kind of church is a racist church. Obama did not wake up after
20 years and just discover he’d been going to a racist church. The
TRUE church can’t be about race. Jesus did not come for any
particular race. He came for the whole world.
A church can’t have a value system based on race. The churches value
system has to be based on biblical mandates. It does not matter if
it’s a white church or a black church based on racial values, it’s
still wrong. Anyone from either race that attends a church like this
would never get my vote.
Obama’s former Pastor Jeremiah Wright is a disciple of liberal
theologian James Cone, author of the 1970 book “The Goals of the
Black Community”. “If God is not for us and against white people, t
hen he is a murderer, and we had better kill him.”
Cone is the man Obama’s mentor looks up to. Does Obama believe this?
So what does all this mean for the nation?
In the past when the Lord brought someone with the beliefs of Obama
to lead a nation it meant one thing – judgment.
Read 1 Samuel 8 when Israel asked for a king. First God says in 1
Samuel 1:9 “Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them
know what the king who will reign over them will do.”
Then God says
1 Samuel 1:18 ” When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from
the king you have chosen, and the LORD will not answer you in that
day.” 19 But the people refused to listen to Samuel. “No!” they said.
“We want a king over us. 20 Then we will be like all the other
nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our
battles.” 21 When Samuel heard all that the people said, he repeated
it before the LORD. 22 The LORD answered, “Listen to them and give
them a king.”
Here is what we know for sure.
God is not schizophrenic
He would not tell one person to vote for Obama and one to vote for
McCain. As the scripture says, a city divided against itself cannot
stand, so obviously many people are not hearing from God. Maybe I am
the one not hearing but I know God does not change and Obama
contradicts many things I read in scripture so I doubt it.
For all my friends who are voting for Obama can you really look God
in the face and say; Father ,based on your word, I am voting for
Obama even though I know he will continue the genocidal practice of
partial birth abortion. He might have to nominate three or four
Supreme Court justices, and I am sure he will be nominating liberal
judges who will be making laws that are against you. I also know he
will continue to push for homosexual rights, even though you
destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for this. I know I can look the other
way because of the economy.
I could not see Jesus agreeing with many of Obama’s positions.
Finally I have two questions for all my liberal friends.
Since we know someones value system has to be placed on the nation,
1. Whose value system should be placed on the nation?
2. Who should determine that this is the right value system for the
