Jesus = ST. Obama
This had to have been written by a DUer, its all DUmmy speak!

Jesus was born Yeshua Ben Yoseph in the town of Bethlehem. Yeshua means salvation or “Lord who is salvation” in Hebrew, while the remainder of his name refers to his lineage from his earthly father.
He was born into a poor Hebrew family from Nazareth, but one that was provided for very well by God through the Wise Men.
Nazareth was near the Gentile cities of Tiberias and Sepphoris on the Sea of Gaililee that lies in southern Israel along the ancient “Via Maris,” which linked Egypt to Mesopotamia. As has been shown by archaeology and linguistic evidence, this region was essentially an eastern extension of Africa due to the interaction of these peoples.
Second, Jesus’ genealogy is stated clearly in the Bible and demonstrates that he was a man of color. First, Matthew 1:2-17 sets out Jesus’ lineage to King David and beyond, which interestingly contains many flawed human beings (sinners like me), but also contains at least four Afro-Asiatic women: Rahab, Tamar, Ruth and Bathsheba. There was also a substantial general Afro-Asiatic influence in Jesus’ DNA as the Hebrew in Jesus genealogy were a subjugated people that spent a hundreds of years in Africa.
Putting aside the sexual exploitation of slaves that we know from the American and Mexican experience, Moses, for example, had a Cushite or Ethiopian wife and Phineas, which in Egyptian means “the Nubian,” was the son of Aaron and the father of a priestly Hebrew line.
Third, Jesus spent his early years in Egypt, where he and his family apparently blended in quite well. Matthew reports the flight of Jesus’ family to Egypt to escape Herod’s infanticide designed to kill Jesus. Thus, Jesus spent his formative years in Africa and was exposed to Egyptian mysticism.
This is confirmed by non-biblical resources, as early Jewish critics of Christianity argued that Jesus learned his magic in Egypt. Matthew also documents that God called his son out of Egypt.
For all these reasons, it is clear that Jesus was a man of color. He was of mixed blood known as Afroasiatic. Like his parents, he was much like the darker Palestinian, Egyptian or Yemenite of today: More chocolate brown than Caucasian in appearance.
What is in a name? Today in America, our names have little meaning other than to identify us. This was and is not so in Middle Eastern cultures.
The name Hussein, which is being used to demagogue Mr. Obama because it was also the shortened name of Saddam Hussein, does not actually have any evil connotation. In Arabic, it means “to be good” or “to be handsome or beautiful.”
So as with most demagoguery, we find that there is no basis in fact for it, nor is there any thing for us Caucasian Americans to fear from the use of this name.

That essay assumes that race is the only thing that those who aren't voting for Obama are judging him on.
I don't like to slam his middle name, because there was a good man in my lifetime with the name Hussein-the late King Hussein of Jordan, who was an ally of the US and a muslim King who was interested in bringing his people into the modern world. Jordan remains our ally, too.

I don't fear Obama 'because he's dark'.
I fear him as POTUS because he's going to destroy the economy of this country.
I fear him as POTUS because he's going to dismantle our defense. He promised to do so.
I fear him as POTUS because he said he'd cancel the space program.
I fear him as POTUS because he doesn't know what the hell he's doing.
I fear him as POTUS because he's a racist, sexist pig.
I fear him as POTUS because of his Chicago mob connections.
I fear him as POTUS because he REFUSES to see common sense and to DRILL for our own oil.
I fear him as POTUS because he has TRI-Citizenship with USA/Indonesia/Kenya.
I fear him as POTUS because he lies and lies and lies, and the media doesn't expose it.
I fear him as POTUS because of his self-serving narcassistic messianic language he uses.
I fear his wife as well. She's a freaky frightening racist witch.

And Jesus also said 'if you have no sword sell your cloak and buy one' and also said that if someone enters your house to do you harm you may kill him w/ no repercusions

Grappling with the ‘God Gap’A faithful mess.
Denver — Just a few minutes into the Democratic National Convention’s opening interfaith worship service, the abortion issue took center stage. Literally.
As a mixed-race choir wearing kente cloth sang a spiritual song, a man rose from the front of the half-full Wells Fargo Theater at the Denver Convention Center and said, repeatedly, “Obama supports the murder of children by abortion.”
After police escorted him out of the venue, another protester rose. Then another. The religiously diverse crowd was not pleased, booing each. The stunt was rude, to be sure, but that wasn’t the only reason it made the attendees uncomfortable: When one of the keynote speakers announced he was pro-life, you could have heard a pin drop.
Bishop Charles E. Blake, presiding prelate of the Church of God in Christ, spoke of “the moral and spiritual pain” felt by pro-life Democrats like himself because of the party’s “disregard for the lives of the unborn.”
“Surely we cannot be pleased with the routine administration of millions of surgically terminated pregnancies,” he preached. “Something in us must be calling for a better way. If we do not resist at this point, at what point do we resist?”
