    Should Christians support Obama?

    Since Obama disagrees with most of the things he believes in like SSM, abortion any time including partial birth should Christians vote for him?

    This is a poorly veiled Scotsman argument.

    Let's spam his poll just to annoy him.

    You're assuming of course all Christians believe the exact same thing.

    This is not true.

    Edit: Bugger I chose the wrong option.

    Hence the poorly veiled no true Scotsman fallacy.

    As a Christian, I will say that, personally, I do not take most social/moral issues into consideration when voting for president. If I were choosing a candidate based on moral/social issues, unless Christ himself, Mother Theresa, or Gandhi returned, sadly.......there really aren't many left in the "field" of candidates who are up to par.

    That being said, there are really only three issues which I take into consideration when deciding whether or not to support a candidate:
    (1) Will his/her policies promote economic growth?
    (2) Will his/her policies promote price stability and strengthen the US dollar?
    (3) Will his/her policies promote higher employment?

    I must score Obama's policies highly UNSATISFACTORY in all three areas; therefore......................no, I will not be voting for Hussein Obama..........but it has little or nothing to do with me being a Christian.

    And you know this how?

    You are applying your views as if the majority of Christians believe them without first confirming that.

    I think this is fairly obvious..........Christians (at least those who actually follow the teachings of Christ and the New Testament), by definition, would be opposed to SSM and abortion. You're acting as if this is not common knowledge.

    I know plenty of Christians who aren't opposed to SSM. I can't say the same for abortion, though.
