Just a week ago, Jewish organizations stepped up to defend US Sen. Barack Obama against an Internet campaign smearing him as a radical Muslim. Now some Jewish communal leaders feel the Democratic presidential candidate is going too far in touting his Christian bona fides.

The Anti-Defamation League has asked the campaign of the Illinois senator to clarify fliers distributed in South Carolina declaring Obama to be a "committed Christian." The flier features Obama posing in churches - in one instance, in front of a cross - and reassures the reader: "Guided by his Christian faith, Barack Obama is the leader we can trust to challenge the ways of Washington."

Do the christians in this forum consider Obama to be a good christian? And it seems that those who support Obama are idolizing him as their symbol of unity and change. So Obama is replacing Jesus in their lives... thoughts?

I think it is somewhat sad that people are trying to perpetuate that Obama is a Muslim when he has attended a Christian church for a long time and claims to be a Christian. As far as I'm concerned, if he claims it, that is between him and God and I am in no position to comment on it further.

I wouldn't vote for the guy for a lot of reasons, but this one is something I'm simply steering clear of. I won't be voting for McCain or Hillary either for plenty of reasons.

So, apparently you guys aren't going to vote?

Just one question...

If all of the christians who don't like the options don't vote, who will be electing our next president?

People who know how to separate church from state..I remember well the sermons from the preacher on Sunday mornings( about eight years ago )telling us how wonderful it was that we finally had elected a Christian to the white house who would run the government on prayer before he made any major decisions..And the people all said "Amen"After a year or so they talked about him not being a "real" christian
