That the Arlington Group, or any conservative Evangelical group, is considering endorsing Senator Obama is simply mind boggling. Senator McCain may not be fluent in theological or theosophical language but this is poor reason to bestow blessings on a false messiah.
A staffer reports, “[Obama] speaks our language. He seems more comfortable with his faith. Jesus’ name rolls off his tongue, as do some of the phrases people of faith tend to use in these meetings,” So, yes, words matter. Obama knows the hymnal well, but actions trump words every time. In Matthew 7:16, written in red letters, “Ye shall know them by their fruits: Do men gather grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles?” BHO uses holy language to obscure his true positions. He is for keeping President Bush’s Faith Based Initiatives as long as long as the faith is left on the sidelines. He is for gay marriages — or Michelle is. Also worth consideration, Obama and family attended, for 20 years, a church where hate, not love, was frequently preached. His words are awfully pretty but are they contrary to his action and his very brief voting record. His words are a pretty song used as subterfuge and distraction. In the words of my Yiddish speaking forefathers, “A half truth is a whole lie.”p>As for McCain, he will never be the most eloquent man in the room. He is often a leaden speaker with an ear of tin and a tongue of clay. Not all are given the gift of gab. Moses was a poor speaker who needed his brother Aaron to be his mouthpiece, but history shows that Moses is the one who carried out the Lord’s mission. br> — Ira M.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
