It’s up to the Christians

I was reading an article over at  Politico a few days ago which talked about obama’s appeal to white, church-going Christians. Or, should I say, his lack of appeal to white, church-going Christians.

In spite of all that has been written and talked about the obama outreach effort to evangelical voters, only 28% if this large demographic group is planning to vote for obama. In fact, that number is slightly less than John Kerry received 4 years ago. How significant is this? The evangelical vote is about one third of the electorate. This is good news for John McCain.

Should anyone be surprised? I really don’t think so.

The obama campaign is offensive to Christians on many levels. Certainly the Right to Life is a large part of that. Even more so, I think, is the messiah-like worship that obama’s supporters have given to him. 0bama himself has done nothing at all to discourage them, and actually seems to revel in it.

It is the type of behavior that leaves a large portion of the evangelical right wondering if we are seeing the rise of the antichrist.

I don’t use those words easily, and just seeing them on screen gives me pause.

He can still be defeated.

This year, more than ever, it is up to the Christians.
