Christians for Obama

Interesting story at CNN.

I heard a very insightful speaker say that many evangelicals are ripe fruit for exploitation, because of their lack of doctrine: (Ephesians 4:14)
"That we [henceforth] be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, [and] cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive"
Without the teaching of sound doctrine, you are vulnerable to every "new" idea that comes along.

For example (given in the CNN story), the Matthew 25 Network: "I tell you the truth, as you did to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me." Matthew 25:40

That's an interesting choice of verses. The implication is that the proper behavior for Christians is to support a government which takes people's money and gives it to the poor (</sarcasm>).

Of course, it overlooks the most obvious interpretation. Who is less than an unborn baby, and what can you do that is worse than murder them in the womb?
