I was asked (on Facebook) by an atheist I know from high school:
"You never did answer my question about how you reconcile your deep, raw unbridled hatred of Barak Obama with your professed belief in Christianity. How does that work?"
I did answer your question.
My niece did an even better job.
And I will admit, unlike then, that I do hate Obama.
A deep visceral hatred of which I am not proud.
But it is the response of a man to a despot who would subvert the Constitution of the United States after swearing to uphold it.
It is the response to a man who condones the daily death of thousands of innocent babies, even those who have survived the abortion.
Of a man who intentionally weakens the position of the only decent superpower on this earth, a force for good.
Of a man who enslaves our (yes yours also) children with debt having the intent to destroy the America they might have inherited.
I'm not proud of it.
I must ask God to help me overcome it.
And it is a hallmark of Christianity that I do.
That's how that works.
