Despite Barack Obama's approval of abortion and homosexual activism, new polling by a prestigious Christian research group indicates that the Democratic presidential nominee is making significant inroads among voters who are classified as "born-again" Christians.

Why 'born-again' Christians are backing Obama (OneNewsNow.com) (http://www.onenewsnow.com/Election2008/Default.aspx?id=303730 - broken link)

Obama is popular with young evangelicals who have grown up in a world of contemporary feel-good Christianity. They don't feel morally convicted about a candidate that supports the murdering of children. I am not going to judge them, but no economic prosperity is worth continuing this brutal massacre of America's young. That's not even touching the homosexual issue that provoked the wrath of God on Sodom, but "Christian" Palin also supports civil unions so there really isn't a huge difference there.

I don't see a problem with civil union.

May be they're voting for other reasons then his religion views? I could never understand why religion is a "must" to be a part of political choosing.

As Christians, you always put Christ first even in your voting.

Guilty - I voted for him in the primary to keep Hillary out. Now I've been able to read his voting record on the issues mentioned, and I'm sickened. Living in a red state (Texas), we'll go McCain - but the swing states will verify what we are as a nation.

But I do know this: God will give us what we need, and if it's a corrupt "king" to bring God's judgment, we need it.

1 Samuel 1:18 ' When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, and the LORD will not answer you in that day.' 19 But the people refused to listen to Samuel. 'No!' they said. 'We want a king over us. 20 Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles.' 21 When Samuel heard all that the people said, he repeated it before the LORD. 22 The LORD answered, 'Listen to them and give them a king.'

I voted for the lesser of two evils (McCain) but both of these candidates are far from representing Christ. Huckabee is a righteous man but this country isn't in the position to be led by him.

Every 4 years we vote for the lesser of two evils. Obama would have been no different except for the fact this is a man who would sign F.O.C.A. I mean that is just something we as Christians can not overlook

Then there are Christians with suspect discernment who know this issue is a stumbling block for most Christians so they deliberately lie or twist the truth to help appease the conscience of Christians voting for this man.
