Listen carefully to songwriter Randy Newman’s parody that points out what most bigoted Americans can’t admit. Newman gently prods the tender underbelly of those good Christian, God-loving folk who insist that Barack Obama is the worst president we’ve ever had.
“Newman explains, “No other Western industrialized nation would’ve elected a black president. I’m proud of this country for having elected Obama in 2008. But from the beginning of his term, I noticed a particular heat to conversations that wouldn’t ordinarily generate that kind of passion: The budget, appointments, health care.” He continues, “I think there are a lot of people who find it jarring to have a black man in the White House and they want him out. They just can’t believe that there’s not a more qualified white man. You won’t get anyone, and I do mean anyone, to admit it.”
George Washington was a white man
Adams and Jefferson too
Abe Lincoln was a white man, probably
And William McKinley the whitest of them all
Was shot down by an immigrant in Buffalo
And a star fell out of heaven
I’m dreaming of a white President
Just like the ones we’ve always had
A real live white man
Who knows the score
How to handle money or start a war
Wouldn’t even have to tell me what we were fighting for
He’d be the right man
If he were a
I’m dreaming of a white President
Someone whom we can understand
Someone who knows where we’re coming from
And that the law of the jungle is not the law of this land
In deepest darkest Africa nineteen three
A little boy says, “Daddy, I just discovered relativity.
A big eclipse is coming
And I’ll prove it. Wait and see!”
“You better eclipse yourself outta here, son
And find yourself a tree
There’s a lion in the front yard
And he knows he won’t catch me.”
How many little Albert Einsteins
Cut down in their prime?
How many little Ronald Reagans
Gobbled up before their time?
I don’t believe in evolution
But it does occur to me,
What if little William Howard Taft had to face a lion
Or God forbid, climb a tree?
Where would this country be?
I’m dreaming of a white President
Buh buh buh buh
‘Cause things have never been this bad
So he won’t run the hundred in ten seconds flat
So he won’t have a pretty jump shot
Or be an Olympic acrobat
So he won’t know much about global warming
Is that really where you’re at?
He won’t be the brightest, perhaps
But he’ll be the whitest
And I’ll vote for that
Whiter than this?
Whiter than this?
Whiter than this?
Whiter than this?

The above expresses my frustration and my feelings perfectly. These days, I feel that I can recognize real Christians by how they treat the president of the United States. God has given us explicit instructions about our leaders in government and what is expected out of our behavior, public and private, where they are concerned. Many Christians do not give a hoot what God has said in that bible they allegedly read.
I’m certainly not perfect either in my daily life, but I am continually seeking others wiser than myself in the ways of the Lord to learn from and model myself after as I grow spiritually. People who mistreat our president are not people I want to emulate or learn from.
There are Christians who do not understand why I defend and stand up for President Barack Obama. I could write lengthy posts about various reasons, but the most important reason is because I have always treated the president of the USA with respect; I treat the office with respect and I trust that God has allowed the leader in office to guide our country for whatever His reasons — I don’t question that.
This particular president has affected my life personally, and the life of my daughter. He created a health care policy that saved our booties when her father died and her medicines cost thousands of dollars that we didn’t have. Her health insurance was cancelled because my ex husband had died, but Obamacare picked up our slack, thank God, and right before Christimas too. My child now has an excellent Humana policy that I am paying for and am able to afford thanks to this president! He cared. He really cared about US.
I see this president expressing concern, love, and positivity about moving our country in a more compassionate direction for all. He cares about all of us, not just the one percent or the half that suits him. We all count with President Barack Obama, even the hateful, mean, ugly-acting people.
This president is honorable, ethical, compassionate, and he does what he says he’s going to do. He keeps his promises. No matter the good he does, though, it’s not good enough for half of America. What’s really odd is that at least a quarter of those who hate him struggle financially just like I do. Go figure that they support the side that loves the rich and promotes the rich and could care less about the poor! This just seems illogical to me, unrealistic, and impractical.
It infuriates me when I see people I love and care about picking on this president, when he can do no right no matter what he does. I am sickened by this behavior, especially from alleged Christian people who claim to love the Lord. At any rate, I know I must contain my anger and simply pray for these people because it is up to God to judge them, not I. They are spreading hate, not love. They have bought into the darkness of this world and don’t even know it. It makes me very, very sad to watch their behavior, read their posts, and listen to their lies. Examples:
Obama is a closeted, secret Muslim.
Obama hates America.
Michelle is a man.
Obama is gay.
Obama wants to destroy America.
Obama is the antichrist.
Obama has no plan, no strategy to deal with ISIS ….and other sundry blatant lies.
These people should be ashamed of themselves! They are dishonest. And as for the racist comments?
“Get that niger out of the white house!” (yes, someone I’ve known for years, on my friend’s list, misspelled “nigger,” — that right there should tell you something). It tells you that he is spouting PURE IGNORANCE and is UNEDUCATED and REDNECK. And I don’t mean these adjectives as something to be proud of.
I lost this friend because of his “nigger” comment the other day on my Facebook wall. I don’t think I can be friends with someone who is that racist; it just sickens me too much. What do I have in common that I can share with a person who hates an individual because of the color of his skin?
When I see alleged Christians lying and spreading falsehoods about the president, I know they’ve lost their way. When I confront them about this and they make excuses, defend their actions, or just blithely continue in their despicable behavior, I realize I am powerless to change them. Only God can change their hearts and I surely do hope He does so in this lifetime. I would hate to be in their shoes when they stand before Him.
Anyway, I could go on and on about why I respect and appreciate President Obama, but I think you get the gist of what I’m saying. I respect the office first and foremost, no matter who resides within it. I think this president has done a fine job as president so far and I stand up for him for all of these reasons.

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
–Matthew 11:28-30 the message

Times have been really tough for me since my best friend, Donald, passed away on June 25, 2014. I always knew I would miss Don when his time to go came, but I hadn’t counted on the ugly drama appearing out of nowhere from people who were never part of Don’s life when he was living.
It’s amazing what happens to folks when they think they may benefit from a relative’s death. No matter how distant they were when their relative was living, when he dies, the vultures want to pick those bones bare. People will do quite literally anything for money — even Christians! Dons last wishes weren’t even considered. His “family” has been completely about taking everything of his that has monetary value.
It’s hard to honor the bible and behave like Jesus instructed us when we are mistreated by strangers and falsely accused. Having to search myself nightly to be sure I have behaved appropriately is emotionally exhausting. We have to remember what to do in these situations as Christians.
“Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life” (Proverbs 4:23). We desperately need that reminder when we are under attack. Let’s face it. Unless we guard our own heart, we will soon be down in the gutter with our opponents. We’ll be tempted to answer in kind, to attack them as they have attacked us, to vilify them, to smear their reputation, and in general to do whatever we have to do to get even with them.” (Source)

I would love to completely embrace pacifism as a follower of Jesus Christ; unfortunately we live in a world that is evil to the core and growing more so every day that passes. It is time to put forth a proportionate response to the beheading of James Foley, a U.S. Journalist. ISIS threats to harm another American hostage must not be ignored. No, we cannot afford war right now, but when we are forced into war, we must engage so that America remains a significant force for democracy and freedom.
President Obama must listen to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, who said:
“I don’t know why he used the word ‘justice.’ It’s not appropriate here. This is an attack on our country, we have to react to it,” an upset Chris Matthews reacted to a video excerpt of President Obama’s statement today about the beheading by an ISIS member of American freelance journalist James Foley.
“This is our country versus this group that’s declared war on us. What’s justice mean in this con– I don’t know why the word’s used, like we’re going to go to the World Court with this?!” Matthews sneered to guest Howard Fineman of the Huffington Post Media Group on the August 20 edition of Hardball. Later in the segment, an irate Matthews insisted “no American president can survive if he lets Americans be beheaded on international television with impunity. Impunity! He has to strike back, as an American, it’s in our soul!”
President Obama must tear a page from Fox News commentator, Charles Krauthamer:
“The point here is the only response to this beheading which will be understood by ISIS is a vigorous air campaign against them, supporting the troops on the ground, not American, there are boots on the ground, Iraqis and Kurdish, who just retook the Mosul Dam, who have succeeded in pushing back ISIS from the outskirts of Kurdistan. They have had success, they need U.S. air power, that’s the proper response. It’s not sending a prosecutor over to gather evidence about the beheading.”
President Obama, it is time to put on your combat boots and get ready to stomp some ISIS arse.’ All Americans must unify and support our sitting president in destroying this threat until it is vanquished. Enough is enough; there is a limit and we have now reached it.
We must behead the snake that is ISIS.

Killing, murder, genocide, and the open ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people is not acceptable under the New Covenant signed with the blood of Jesus Christ. This is what the Zionists are not understanding. Christians who support Israel don’t grasp this either — so many Christians seem to want to believe lies rather than the Holy Bible and the words of Jesus Christ! You are living in the times before the blood of Jesus was shed for the sins if the world! There are new instructions and definitions for right and wrong. There is a new Covenant to honor and pattern one’s behavior after.
Brutality and alleged “defending of oneself” when one already has the upper hand cannot be rationalized as a defense of the indefensible, where Israel is concerned. Babbling that Robin Williams is a deluded atheist who insulted and hated Jesus Christ while he was alive, while expressing undying loyalty and support for the atheist, non-believing “Jewish” in Israel is absolute blind hypocrisy. The Jewish people in Israel do not believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah; thus supporting their holocaust of thousands of Palestinians is akin to what was perpetrated by Hitler upon the Jews to begin with! It’s wrong, sick, and ungodly, and God does not support it, nor does His Son, Jesus Christ.
Jesus told each one of us how to treat our enemies.…43″You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR and hate your enemy.’ 44″But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.…” (Matthew 5:43-45)
Unceasing argument and an insistence upon only close minded, limited perspectives an interpretation of the Holy Bible has caused a terrible fracture within the Body of Christ. We are so terribly separated as a body of believers. Our power has been seriously compromised to carry out what God wants us to do together. I don’t believe God will be pleased that the simple and very clear instructions of Jesus were blown off and discarded in favor of Old Testament Law, “an eye for an eye.”
What unbeliever will respect people who murder and kill innocents and actually try to justify what they are doing as backed by God? God is not a ruthless murderer. God settled all past scores when Jesus died on that cross. God will eventually destroy pure evil when all is said and done, but in the interim our instructions are quite clear. We are to be children of the light. We are not to have blood on our hands, especially innocent civilian blood!
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
1 Thessalonians 5:15
Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else.”

This is a rant. Just thought I better forewarn you …
Apparently there are those among us, within “Christianity,” who decided it might be a good idea to judge Robin Williams and declare him in hell for the world to read about on their various Facebook accounts, blogs, Twitter’s, etc.
Basing their thoughts and personal opinions from the Holy Bible, (but of course!), we’ve all been informed that Robin Williams was a lousy person because he laughed at God and Jesus in his comic routines, and that he may have been …(oh not this!) an atheist.
I read one “Christian” blogger who shared a post the very next day after Robin Williams died, who opined that Robin was a despicable person, despite the hundreds upon thousands of people in the world who say and think otherwise. Friends of his wrote about his goodness, kindness, sense of humor, compassion, and love for his fellow human beings and family, yet this Christian blogger insists that Robin was “an enemy of God and a despicable human being.”
As usual, I got a little sick inside, like I do when I read other self-righteous, alleged- Christian posts and blogs, wherein the all seeing eyes of these Christians have already figured out who is going to hell, who is burning in hell that very minute, and who is in league with Satan himself, and Obama too, of course! (eyes rolling).
The absolute disrespect and hatred spewing out of this man’s posts make me so angry, but at the same time I anguish over the writings as well. What if people read his inane babblings and really believe what he’s insisting about God, our beloved Father in Heaven?
How in the world does anyone know for certain where Robin Williams is right now? It’s not like anyone else is God. It’s not like they have concrete-solid proof of what God plans to do with Robin Williams even if he was atheist. How do we know what he did about God minutes before he died? Maybe he actually prayed…. ? Who can know?
For those of you who were not aware, Robin Williams had early-stage Parkinson’s Disease, but he was sober when he died. He had managed to keep his long-term sobriety in tact, according to his loving wife and mother of his kids, who are still deeply grieving his loss. It takes a lot of guts to stay sober despite fighting serious depression and addiction! And we find out that he had Parkinsons Disease looming on the horizon?
Nevertheless, this “good Christian” along with many, many others, has unfortunately played God, judge and jury, and put Robin Williams in hell for his sins, his alleged atheism, his suicide, and whatever else they can dredge up to judge and condemn him for. Well, I have to look at this kind of behavior and try to fight the bile that rises up in my throat that I am actually linked via the title/word “CHRISTIAN” to people such as these.
Yes, I know that they are supposed to be my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, but I have to honestly tell you, readers, I really don’t think they are! How is this actually possible? How could people that behave like this be anywhere close to eventually being with God, Jesus, Heaven, and the Angels? How is it possible? Is this sincerely what we have to look forward to? (a life in Heaven with people like that?)
If that is what Heaven is going to be holding within it, I may have to rethink this whole thing. If God is seriously like these crazy Christian zealots insist He is, I think there is going to be a real problem when He and I talk in person.

Please listen and think about this valid, important message Ed is sharing! Thank you, Ed, for seeing thru to a major problem in Christendom today.
Originally posted on Ed Christian's World:
The Christian Church is a house divided against itself and this division could just tear what is left of the Church apart. Now that I have your attention let’s discuss it.
Christian’s believe that the Bible is God’s word and that Jesus is the only way to eternal life. All Christians believe this, yet because of disagreements over this or that, the Church has divided into denominations. We have the Baptist, Methodist, United Church of Christ, Presbyterian and many, many more. They all believe the basic fundamentals of the Christian Church. The difference is some don’t look at your neighbors as including all neighbors, some look at contraceptives as against the will of God, some think you can baptize with a sprinkling of water, and the list goes on and on.
In the Bible Jesus said love your neighbors as God has loved you, take care of the poor, needy…
