The Wedge Issue

Last night’s debate was definitely better than the other two. I enjoyed seeing a little banter between them. Both are crushing with their negative attack ads. The amount of media dollars being spent right now is staggering.

Concerning the short section concerning Roe v. Wade:
McCain: “I thought it was a bad decision.”
Obama: “I am somebody who believes that Roe versus Wade was rightly decided.”

All the sweet subtleties and eloquent sentences don’t sway me while the dreams of God are being snuffed out in wholesale numbers. I believe the Church will be held accountable for where she stands on November 4th.

It’s not like I really needed it, but Obama’s words last night encouraged me beyond measure that my solemn stand in prayer in front of the Supreme Court is desperately needed now more than ever.
Obama: (concerning the appointment of Supreme Court Justices) “And it is true that this is going to be, I think, one of the most consequential decisions of the next president. It is very likely that one of us will be making at least one and probably more than one appointments and Roe versus Wade probably hangs in the balance.”

Indeed. The outcome of this election falls soley on the American church's shoulders. May God have mercy.

The issue of abortion, I believe is driving a deeper wedge between Christianity and Christianity across our nation. THere are thousands who will vote for a cantidate based on his stand on abortion and ignore the rest of the cantidate's views, and thousands who will vote for a cantidate becuase they feel he is the best for so many things, but ignore his stand on abortion....

And, I believe this issue is driving the anti-christian agenda in our nation even further and making their platform even stronger - becuase we as Christians can't agree....
