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.

Three pictures in the

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.

The chairman of the House Committee on Veterans ­Affairs said Wednesday that dozens of VA hospital patients in Phoenix may have died while awaiting medical care. Rep.

"It appears as though there could be as many as 40 veterans whose deaths could be ­related to delays in care," ­Miller announced to a stunned audience during a committee hearing Wednesday.

A once-prominent socialite was found guilty Tuesday in the 1996 Tucson car bomb killing of her ex-husband after spending years abroad living a lavish lifestyle across Europe. Pamela Phillips, 56, had pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. During the trial that began in February, Phillips´ lawyers told jurors their client had nothing to gain from the death of businessman Gary Triano and that she was the victim of overzealous authorities who failed to follow other leads. They said Phillips was already a successful real estate broker with her own money, and suggested that Triano had

President Obama will host two events on the economy this week as Democrats seek to pivot the political discussion away from the healthcare law. Democrats dispute that that the healthcare law will be a liability for the party in this year’s elections, and celebrated the news last week that ObamaCare enrollments topped 7 million. Still, they argue that jobs and the economy will be the central battleground in November. “That’s the debate that the election will be about, jobs and the budget,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said last week.

Republican megadonors wouldn’t flood elections with private money if federal law forced individuals to immediately disclose their gifts, not only in public records but in advertisements too, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday. “The Chamber of Commerce told us that if their members had to disclose, they wouldn’t give to these secret PACs,” Pelosi said. Pelosi’s comments come as House Democrats plan to aggressively push for campaign finance reforms after the Supreme Court decision on Wednesday to eliminate caps on the total amount of money an individual can give to candidates, party committees and PACs.

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd. But

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and
