NAACP criticizes Franklin Graham
for political, religious stands

News & Observer [Charlotte, NC], by Michael Gordon

For the second time during the presidential campaign, a group of African-American ministers in North Carolina has criticized Franklin Graham for challenging the spiritual beliefs of President Barack Obama, accusing the evangelist Monday of promoting a narrow form of Christianity that supports a politically conservative point of view. Meeting in Charlotte, the group read an open letter to Graham that comes in response to a series of full-page ads that bear a photograph of his father, Billy Graham, and ask voters to elect candidates who support “biblical principles.” In comments to the

Franklin Graham is a really good person. He heads up Samaritan's Purse and Operation Christmas Child charities. These do alot of good work around the world including gift boxes to kids who would probably never get a gift in their life if not from OCC. Last year over 8 million boxes were given out to over 100 nations. Many of the gift boxes go to Africa. I dare say Franklin's charities do more for Africa then the NCAAP. They ought to stop critizing him and start helping.

Any person who supports abortion and homosexual unions is not a Christian. That doesn't mean that you hate them, it just means that they have said the Bible and God are in error. Franklin Graham is correct.

Read the article and look at the photo of the ministers.

Hysterical... under the photo it refers to "a diverse group of statewide religious leaders."

I looked at the photo again. I had no idea before this moment that the word "diverse" meant "all black."

Obama is not a believer in Christ. Therefore he is not a Christian. Period.

Jesus stated in no uncertain terms that the tree is known for the fruit that it bears. Obama is completely self-serving, walks all over other people, is capable of lying with a completely straight face, sees no wrong in killing babies who are seconds from being fully delivered, and seems to be more comfortable and supportive of Islam than Christianity.

Obama can call himself a Christian all he wants. Christianity is not endowed upon someone through merely claiming to be one. Christianity is gifted upon someone who recognizes their absolute inability to please God who is also willing to throw themselves at the feet of the Almighty, with a broken heart, and receive forgiveness.

Obama's life simply does not indicate that he is anything other than arrogant and self-serving. He is not serving others. He is not in any way that I can see, a humble man.

John Bunyan ('Pilgrim's Progress') had a nice way of putting it. There are professors of faith. Then, there are possessors of faith. Obama is a weak professor, at best. He is certainly not a possessor of faith in Christ.

Guess they have not or choose not to read the same Bible we do! God's Word is true and He will stand by it.

Lead US not into temptation!

Deliver US from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory! Amen!

God's Word is enough for me.

When these so-called ministers stand before God on Judgment Day, they will be held accountable to Him, not Obama! What do they want to hear - Welcome, good and faithful servant or depart from Me, for I "never" knew you! This is their choice as well as ours.

God is faithful to His Word, Jesus, who is the Righteouness Of His Father, sent to "deliver" man from from their sins.


By Faith we come, just as we are, receive His gift of Love/Mercy/Grace.

He will stand before Satan for US, for the battle is His, not ours!

America is finally waking up from a nightmare called Obama!

Pray for America and vote for righteousness!

Matthew 7:13-14
Enter you in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads to life, and few there be that find it.

And that, brothers of the NAACP, is what the Bible says. It's a shame that you guys throw a hissy fit at an ad that just says 'vote for the candidates who support Biblical principles.'

Unlike these clueless "minsters," I agree with the man who advocates the narrow way. "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."
Mt.7:13-14

What else would you expect from the NAACP? Ministers cannot change this. Eventually, there will be only one church standing and it will pit the whole world against it. I choose to follow Christ.

I criticize the NAACP for promoting a liberal, narrow form of anti-Christ support of barack hussein obama. I think the big dude in the middle is/was involved in the Wake county school busing fight, and I think he got arrested for acting out at a school board meeting. He is no minister; he's just another race hustler in the order of Sharpton Jackson.

The NAACP is upset that Graham is urging people to vote for someone who shares his values. They know Obama has none. The double standard here is ridiculous. I guess they support abortion and gay marriage as long as a black president supports it. By the way what God do they worship?

Religious theology directed by the Bible is not a 'living document' as the Libs appear to be making it out to be. There is little option for man's opinion on how to interpret or enact scripture, it is quite explicit.

SO this is nothing more than the Libs perverting religion to their own purposes...and that is to abolish all of it.

The poor we have always, and God could feed all the hungry and cure the sick if he wished, as we witnessed with the coming of Jesus Christ. What we cannot change are spiritual truths, such as God made them male and female, in the beginning, and they are joined together as one flesh in marriage. God doesn't even approve of divorce, except for the hardness of our hearts. Even heathens feed the poor and care for the sick. Even demons believe in God. It doesn't make them Christian... only to do the will of God and follow his commandments.

"If a man will not work, neither shall he eat" - Apostle Paul (a.k.a. Rabbi Saul)

"Do not cast your pearls before swine." - Jesus.

The Bible doesn't command donations for all or forgiveness for all. It commands kindness in response to the humble, grateful requests of the truly needy, with charity being purely voluntary.

And it commands that forgiveness be granted only by the harmed party and only when he is convinced that repentence is sincere.

Their motto should be If you're black, we got your back, and be honest about it.

It seems to be ok to say "colored people" and "negro" as long as you are collecting money.

More than 600 teachers have walked out of Wake County Schools since the start of the school year. The school district says people are leaving for many reasons. Some for jobs in other states. Others are getting out of the profession entirely. However, many have a common reason -- not enough pay.Thursday´s announcement came as the debate over teacher pay escalates. North Carolina teachers haven´t had a pay increase in five years. They currently rank among the lowest paid in the country. School leaders say they´re seeing a 41 increase in teacher resignations over the same period last year, and teachers

A new lawsuit alleges that “X-Men” director Bryan Singer sexually abused an underage boy at a lurid California sex party. The bombshell suit claims the director of blockbuster hits like “Superman Returns” used his position in Hollywood to exploit young men by taking part in a sex ring. The lawsuit, filed by attorney Jeff Herman, charges that Singer attended parties at a mansion in Encino, California where adult males did drugs and had sex with teenage boys.The teen mentioned in the suit never consented to sexual relations with Singer and often persisted, it states, according to a press release from Herman’s

An 89-year-old Navajo woman wants the land she´s lived on all her life to be left to her family once she dies. But here´s the catch; she lives inside a national park, and age-old conflicts between the family and the National Parks Service may prevent that from happening. Stella Peshlakai Smith, who barely speaks any English, was born in what is now the Wupatki National Monument north of Flagstaff in 1924, a month before the land became part of a national park. Her daughter, Helen Peshlakai Davis, says it´s home to her. "There´s no other place that I want to call

The TCM (Turner Classic Movies) cable channel celebrated its twentieth anniversary yesterday. It did so in grand style, rebroadcasting movies from its first day on the air (Gone With the Wind and It Happened One Night). After GWTW, TCM broadcast an interesting interview with host-for-life Robert Osborne conducted by Alec Baldwin. I have been a high volume consumer of TCF roughly since day one. I am a little vague on Ted Turner’s acquisition of the rights to just about every worthwhile movie ever made, but with TCM, he is putting them to good — even ingenious — use. The films

Authorities said Monday that a pair of sex offenders suspected of raping and murdering at least four women probably wore their court-ordered GPS devices during the crimes. Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, had been required to wear the devices after serving time in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 14. Police on Monday also said that they are now “confident” that there is a fifth victim -- and perhaps more -- in a string of slayings that has been tied to a pair of registered sex offenders. The men were formally Monday charged

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

The most decadent Beltway publication yet conceived, Washingtonian, has outdone itself with its latest celebration of what life is like inside the city fueled by your forcibly confiscated money. The publication recently ran with a profile of White House Press Sec. Jay Carney‘s wife, ABC News personality and working mom Claire Shipman. Carney’s two beautiful children are also profiled in the piece, but the profile itself is largely irrelevant. What is worthy of dissection are the three featured images that add value to the profile. And by “value,” we mean guffaws galore.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
