I’m not an Obama supporter, BUT…

These emails are getting to me. You know the ones. Obama is an America-hating, unpatriotic Muslim, etcetera, etcetera…And what REALLY irritates me is that there are Christians in on this spamming circus.  Now, I’m probably not voting for this guy. (I’m a Republican obviously, but I do not adore John McCain either, so this is a really tough election for me.) But still, come ON people! These emails are nothing more than pure gossip and slander, peppered with both half-truths and flat-out lies. I mean, seriously, anyone with half an education (or brain) should be able to see through the sensationalism in these emails. I do not direct this soapbox slathering at anyone in particular, I promise. I love you dearly, even if you have indeed forwarded these to me sometime in the past. But please stop it! It’s ridiculous. And for us as Christians to involve ourselves in such slander really deals a hard blow to the credibility, in my opinion. Sorry, but I really had to get that off my chest.

    Sometimes, you are so much like my husband, it weirds me out. I just listened to him saying almost this exact paragraph to me before you posted it. (And I agree by the way.)

    Hum, I’m not sure why it’s obvious that you are a “republican”.

    Amen about the slanderous emails! I was outraged to receive them and I too had this same convo with my husband.
