Interview With the Rev. Franklin Graham, Birther Espousing Lying Preacher.

Proof of Graham's outright lies concerning Obama's religious faith on top of his lies about Obama's birth certificate.

President Obama published 1/23/2008

"I am a Christian, and I am a devout Christian. I believe in the redemptive death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I believe that that faith gives me a path to be cleansed of sin and have eternal life. But most importantly, I believe in the example that Jesus set by feeding the hungry and healing the sick and always prioritizing the least of these over the powerful. I didn't 'fall out in church' as they say, but there was a very strong awakening in me of the importance of these issues in my life. I didn't want to walk alone on this journey. Accepting Jesus Christ in my life has been a powerful guide for my conduct and my values and my ideals."

None of this discussion about birtherism or Obama's religion have anything to do with his place of birth or his religion.  It is all about his racist.  Evangelical Christianity and anti-black racism have walked together from their beginnings.  The largest evangelical denomination,  the "Southern Baptists" were born out of their break with the northern Baptists who believed American slave system which treated humans as animals, not human beings was incompatible with Christianity.

Evangelicals were the last Christians to accept civil rights for African Americans.  It took the Southern Baptists to 1998 to do this.  The Mormons were even worse.  Racism is embedded in the very core doctrines of their fait.

If people were truly inspired by God would they not have led the way towards justice as Jesus did?  Some thoughts to ponder on the Easter Sunday.
