Christian Support for Obama
I know there are many of us here that are stong Christians, and have struggled with reconciling some of our beliefs with our support of Barack Obama. Most of us decided that the good Obama will do outweighs the political positions with which we disagree
The fact is, there are many of us across the nation. A few weeks ago, I discovered an on-line orginization and PAC devoted to the principles of Chrisitian values given in Matthew 25 (feed the hungry, etc) I signed up, but waited to post it until I had a better feel of where the organization was going. I didn't want it to be just another version of the far religious right.
I have not been disappointed. Here is a portion of their mission statement:
<Therefore, while no elected official will be without flaw, we come together as individuals to support candidates for public office who share the values of the Matthew 25 Network: promoting life with dignity, caring for the least of these, strengthening and supporting families, stewardship of God’s Creation, working for peace and justice at home and abroad, and promoting the common good.>
This organization speaks to my heart and belief system, and I wanted to share it with any that may be interested.
