The Obamanation of Desolation

I wouldn't be doing my duty if I didn't point out those extra special letters to the editor in our local paper.
Democrats simply can’t understand that Republicans and independents are not as fascinated with gay marriage and abortion as they are. In the end, the election will be decided in Sen.

To God there are only two kinds of people, unrepented/unbelievers and repented/believers (also called Christians).
Thank you, God, for settling that question. Therefore:
  • It’s fair to question based on Obama’s words and actions whether he has salvation through Jesus.
