Plans to assassinate Obama disrupted

The Associated Press just posted this alert:

The ATF says it has broken up a plot to assassinate Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and shoot or decapitate 102 black people in a Tennessee murder spree. In court records unsealed Monday, agents said they disrupted plans to rob a gun store and target an unnamed but predominantly African-American high school by two neo-Nazi skinheads.


It is a sad world. I am even more sadden by people that call themselves Christians, but they are spreading fear and false information.

James Dobson's disgusting letter about an Obama Presidency is the second major attack against Obama that distorted information and contained false statements.

Gov Palin has been just as disgusting. She incites rage by false statements that Obama pals around with terrorist. Palin lies at every campaign stop about Obama's positions, such as his taxes that would actually benefit most of the attenders.

It is an embarrassment to all Christians.

Dobson and Palin should be speaking out against hate and racism.

Dear God:

While we need thee every hour, now is certainly one of those hours where we must look to You for strength. Thank you for the wisdom, attention and courage of the members of the ATF who conducted their duty to the benefit of us all. Shower your mercy, love and understanding on those who would think of committing such unspeakable and horrendous acts. Help them to see that acts of violence contradict everything that You are and that You want us to be. Help us to feel, heal, seek justice, love kindness and walk humbly with you.

I join and agree with this prayer. Thank you thom.

Domestic Terrorists need to be condemned by all who love the Lord. It is sad that the verbage abounding at McCain rallys spawns this type of behaviour. Senator McCain when will you condemn these domestic terrorists who planned to kill the Presidential candidate that your followers call a Muslim.

He does about as much of that as you can without making
a spectacle of it.

It's unfortunate that we christians condemn the moslems for their acts of terrorism, and yet we get down and do the very thing which we have tagged as abhorrent. Or is it that the act of terrorism is only legal when perpetrated by we Christians and Americans to the exclusion of others?

The attempt on the life of Obama is a clear indication that terrorism is not terrorism simply because it is perpetrated by Taliban, Al Queda, or in Irac or Some other Islamic nation. The greatest terrorist there is, is Ourselves(Racism!).

Thom, i pray also with you. I know God is our strenght. He'll keep protecting us Christians and Americans from ourselves.

It is sad to see that because of the color of one's skin, we rather not see improvement in our educational, health and housing for all citizens as well as prosperity in this Country. However, I stand on the Word of God, and denounce all acts of terrorism against our candidates. I speak that God's will be done concerning our next President, and I quote Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thous shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. No weapon formed against the Candidate of my choice shall prosper. I speak the WORD in faith, God honors his WORD.

The plans of these men, if the report is true, were evil. But as Christians we must not allow rage to dictate our outlook. Jesus said, "Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, pray for them that despitefully use you and persecute you, for in so doing you will heap coals of fire on their heads." We must also remember that we are not to judge the persons, but only their deeds. Are these people truly evil? Only God knows for sure, and He has not yet told me His opinion.

Welcome to REAL life everyday! Those are the ones they caught, but there are without a doubt, others out there hidden at this time! My prayer has always been; that everything and everyone hidden in the dark against all candidates will be revealed!!

I pray to God that the best happens.
I know it's not up to him, it's up to the evil men who inhabit this planet...but I still pray that the best happens.

All we can do is pray.

And if that's all I can do, then I sure will do a lot of it.
