Doug Giles challenges Evangelicals who support Obama

Evangelicals for Obama? Not according to Townhall columnist Doug Giles who challenges any evangelical to biblically support their backing of presidential hopeful Barack Obama in his latest column,
The only problem is that according to the Senator’s voting record, it will prove impossible to support his views at least from a Biblical perspective, which to evangelicals is the only one that should truly matter, the Bible being God’s Word and all.
Impossible unless said support is primarily rooted in emotionalism, as I myself have observed. Emotionalism impairs our ability to reason and ultimately our commitment to God.
Giles’ style is a bit abrasive but he competently makes his point. Here’s the last part of the column,
How a true believer in Christ (as defined by Scripture) can say he or she believes in what Jesus, the prophets and apostles said and side with such a liberal politico simply because he is “charismatic and youthful” is beyond me.
I’d love to have an evangelical Christian (as classically defined) who backs Obama wade in here on the comment thread and defend (biblically):
1. Obama’s voting record on life and marriage
2. his allegiance to a clearly anti-white, anti-Semitic, anti-American pastor/congregation
3. why B-HO, if he doesn’t buy into what his minister of mayhem propagates, doesn’t officially leave the congregation and disassociate himself from his mad maharishi and his bigoted beliefs?
C’mon . . . hit me with your best shot.
