Why I Can't Vote for Obama

Tuesday morning, I received an email with a letter purportedly written by Huntley Brown, a renowned, award-winning Christian pianist. With all the garbage floating around, I did some research and contacted Mr. Brown myself to confirm that he did indeed write the letter. I asked for permission to print it here, and he graciously agreed. I also encouraged him to submit it to some local newspapers - his words are filled with a wisdom this country sorely needs to hear.

Warning - there is one portion of this that is EXTREMELY graphic, and will easily make most of us sick to our stomachs. I have put a warning just before it, and a notice afterwards, and made the text a little smaller, so that if you want to avoid it you may do so. Just scroll past it. I felt it important to leave intact, because of the message Mr. Brown is conveying. We do not want to offend anyone, so please be advised.

Why I Can't Vote For Obama
By Huntley Brown

Dear Friends,

A few months ago I was asked for my perspective on Obama, I sent out an e-mail 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 its worth repeating.

First I must say who ever 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 Christ 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 the 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 know 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 wrong economic concerns will soon not matter.

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 off is his voting record.

His voting record earned him the title of the most liberal senator in the US Senate in 2007.

NATIONAL JOURNAL: Obama: Most Liberal Senator in 2007 (01/31/2008)

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 with.

There is a reason planned parenthood gives him a 100 % ratings.
There is a reason the homosexual community supports him.
There is a reason Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Castro, Hamas etc loves 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 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 continue.

Lets take a look at the practice he wanted to continue.


The 5 Step Partial Birth Abortion procedure

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 head.
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 parent notification law.

Think about this you can't give a kid an aspirin without parental notification but that same kid can have an abortion without parental notification. This is insane.

There is a reason he went to Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years.

Obama tells us he has good judgement but he sat under Jeremiah Wright teaching for 20 years. Now he is condemning Wrights 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 v 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 tenants 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 tennants 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 discovered he went to a racist church. The 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 mandate. It does not matter if its a white church or a black church its 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 A Black Theology of Liberation. Cone once wrote: “Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then 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 judgement.

Read 1 Samuel 8. When Israel asked for a king.

First God says 1 Samuel 8 v 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 8 v 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 someone's 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 nation?

Q1: Whose value system should be placed on the nation?

A1: None, for if a value system is imposed we are no longer free.

Q2 Who should determine that this is the right value system for the nation?

Made irrelevant by answer 1.

My question to you:

Why do you feel that your God is morally correct when there are dozen's upon dozen's of unethical acts performed by that very God in the Bible.

I’m not sure what you mean by atrocities committed by God. God cannot commit atrocities – man commits the atrocities. Atrocities like murder, abortion, infantcide, genocide, adultery, homosexuality, abuse. Those are all man-made. God is perfect. God is Love.

God created a perfect world and man chose imperfection - evil and hatred resulted. Eternity with God who is kind and loving cannot contain imperfection of any kind.

Hell was created for the spiritual forces of evil but mankind will go there because they chose to follow the rebellion against good.

But the good news is that God sent a Savior – His name is Jesus Christ. You can call upon Him and you will be saved and spend eternity in Heaven with God. You can also choose not to call upon Him, and spend eternity in hell. Heaven or hell.

It’s that simple, yet that profound. The choice is yours.

Thanks for posting this, Tracy. I had already made up my mind long ago that Obama has no business running for ANY office, but that letter was enlightening.
May God truly bless us for acting on what we know is his will. And may we be in prayer always.

Carole said...

Tracy, thank you for posting this. I must admit I have been waffling. This is good info to know...

This is frightening. so true, what if he had 4 years? Or 8? I am really loving what I am finding on your blog!!

I read this letter a while ago, and sent it on to many. I can't help but believe that if we don't stand up for the voiceless, no one will stand up for us. What will be the next step? Leaving a newborn to die on a delivery table is the first step on a very long and VERY slippery slope.

I got this email, too. It is nice to know it was written by the person said to have written it.

Have you seen the "news" that Obama is being sued for his birth certificate? By a democrate, it is not a "right wing" attempt to discredit him. It looks very much so like he is not legally qualified to run for president, and yet not one news station is mentioning this law suit.

It is all very disturbing.

What really makes me wonder is that Obama is silencing the media, forbiding topics, threatening lawsuits against stations that air ads against him, etc, and yet they want him in office? His first step will be to silence the media, complete control.

Jennifer said...

I have to agree with the letter. I think Obama is an engaging and interesting person. In some ways I wish I could vote for him.

Smellyann said...

I'm here from the BGs. I think the letter and anyone who blindly follows it is misguided about Obama and what he believes about PBAs. Of course he is not pro-abortion. Of course he does not want helpless babies to die on the table. Don't be stupid. No doctor in their right mind would refuse treatment. There was already a law on the books, in one case, and in the other case, he didn't vote for the ban because there were NO PROVISIONS FOR THE MOTHER'S HEALTH. C'mon. Think outside the box.

Vote for Change.

Amy said...

I am voting for McCain, and I enjoyed reading this letter. It takes guts to write something spelling out the facts like this and circulate it. I'm glad you verified the author & shared it here.

Charlotte said...

I don't really like either of the canditates at this point, and a lot of the things mentioned in this letter are what makes me definitely not want to vote for Obama. I think with him, there would be a lot of unknowns. He wants "change," but would those changes help our country? Probably not in a good way...

Julianne said...

I am not crazy about McCain, but I feel like if I vote for one of the lesser knows, it is the same as voting of Obama at this point in the election.

Obama has too many tight racist connections and too many muslim connections. Why the LA Times will not release the tape they admit they have of Obama toasting Khalidi is absurd. They media REFUSE to release the truth to the public.

We have allowed humanists and socialists to control most of our media and schools. I know some are standing up against it, but more of us need to take this seriously.

Thank you for an excellent post. I will be forwarding this to others.

Blessings to you and yours.
