Janet Porter is intimately acquainted with god. Or so she thinks.
And god has told her, through his "word," that one cannot be a Christian and vote for Senator Barack Obama.
In an October 28th article at Worldnetdaily.com, Ms. Porter, erstwhile defender of the deity, said:
"To all those who name the name of Christ who plan to willfully disobey Him by voting for Obama, take warning. Not only is our nation in grave danger, according to the Word of God, so are you."
Uh, oh! Watch out! God's gonna get ya!
Why would Ms. Porter say this about a fellow Christian believer?
It's all about abortion, naturally. If that bad man, Obama, is elected, he will sign the Freedom of Choice Act and that will signify the end of the world so far as Ms. Porter is concerned! Now this is soooooo serious that Ms. Porter offers up "God's voter guide" which you absolutely must read before you go to the polls. Here it is:
"I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life [her emphasis], that both you and your descendants may live (Deuteronomy 30:19)."
I'm always amused by the way fundy Christians take the Bible and bend it to support their particular viewpoints. The passage she cites has absolutely NOTHING to do with abortion. This kind of biblical manipulation is essentially disrespectful of the book she pretends to hold so dear.
Then she quotes Exodus 20:13 - You shall not murder.
And John 14:15 - If you love me, keep My commandments.
Barack, she says, may claim to be Christian, but it is obvious from reading Isaiah 29:13, that he is not.
So, says Porter: "Obama-Biden are pro-death. McCain-Palin are pro-life.
"Now choose life that you and your children may live."
Oh, yes, "...this election is not about race. It's not about the economy. It's about obeying God."
Jeez, I didn't know that! Wow. Thanks, Janet, for setting me straight. And the liars and character-assassinators, McCain and Palin, are God's favorites! Holy crap!
Ms. Porter isn't done, though. "Obama," she says, "will use your tax dollars to kill innocent children, and then he'll take your paycheck and use it to 'spread the wealth around.' ...
"Be forewarned: If you willfully disobey God on life and marriage because of race or false hope for the economy, you will usher in the kind of change that brought the Soviet Union to collapse."
I didn't know that, either! What kind of change was that? Ms. Porter doesn't say. Perhaps she's not sure. She should check with Ms. Palin who can see Russia from Alaska. Is Ms. Porter saying that Obama's a commie? Sounds kinda that way.
For certain, though, according to Ms. Porter, voting for Obama will bring the nation crashing down!
Her final word:
"If the word of God matters more to you than your perception of personal gain ... "Then obey Him in the voting booth and out of it. If not, do us all a favor and quit calling yourself a Christian."
Nothing like a little godly hate to start or end your day!
