I’m a Christian, and this saddens me. I do believe the End Times are coming; but I’m a pre-tribulation Rapture believer, so I don’t need to store food. I won’t stand and scream in your face about sin; I’ll just share my faith and tell you why I believe what I believe and how that faith has changed me (for the better) from what I was before. ’nuff said about that.
Obama is not the Anti-Christ. I don’t see eye-to-eye with a lot of the things he believes in, but I think it’s because his viewpoint is very narrow-sighted on many things. He has many good ideas; but many of his ideas stop short of going the distance they should. I think he was elected far too soon in his political career. The only other thing that bothers me about him (and it would about any candidate, truthfully) is the fact that a large number of the things he voted on in the Senate held no opinion; he voted ‘present’. That says nothing about your convictions; only that you voted.
There is no room for religion in our government.
I can’t attest to the validity of that, speaking as a Christian, but I am quite certain there is also no room for weak moral character, indecisiveness and a lack of respect for the people you govern. All of these negative attributes (and many, many more) can be attributed to various leaders and elected officials (at all levels) at various times in our history.
What bothers me about all the Obama drama is that, by any measure of intelligence, dignity and credibility, he is light years ahead of his predecessor, who was an embarrassing dufus who has buggered this country with immense debt and hopeless wars. And yet they complain incessantly about the black man. It is hard to rule out racism.

You should be able to agree with it, even as a Christian.
The empirical evidence is abundantly clear—it’s not religion that makes one a good leader, if it were, Carter would have been a better president than Lincoln. Bush (the younger) a better president than Jefferson.
We are a country of very widely differing religious positions, and bringing religion into government can only make things worse, not better. Unless of course, you really only care about your co-religionists, and it happens to be your religion that’s “in”.
