Hindu here (which according to GOP rhetoric means I'm the enemy) and we don't follow any messiah. We don't have an official hierarchy and dogma so such concepts don't get much traction. A guru can come along but that is a teacher, not a leader in the political sense.
I hope the mods don't move this post to the politics forum because I really want to hear Shanabrown's response.
I've come to respect you Shana, and believe you to be a good and sincere Christian ( although you still have not convinced me about universalism).
I hope your right about Obama. There is alot to be said for a leader who can inspire a country, and history is full of great leaders who have done so.
As your typical middle class white guy, Obama as president makes me nervous. Not because of his race, he is a good man who will no doubt inspire many for good reason. I'm afraid of a fundamental shift in the american way of life.
We'll have a very liberal house and senate leader, and a very liberal President who will no doubt appoint a very liberal court.
The balance of power envisioned by our founders may be at risk. I only wish Obama's views were more moderate.
