A house divided by the man who was supposed to bring us all together:
The tension that came over my house with my daughter-in-law’s words was chilling. In my normally peaceful home my wife and her 26-year-old college educated, ethnic studies degree, “Christian” daughter barbed back and forth with each other after her gloating statement, “Well I guess we won and you lost”. Which was followed by the ethnic studies expert’s brag, “Finally America has gotten over our prejudice and elected an African American as president”. I am sure that all over America conversations such as this one are abundant.
You see my wife, who is 100% Asian and her daughter who is 50% Asian and 50% Caucasian, have been talking about the election for the last few weeks. My wife, who is a 100% devout Bible believing Christian, had been trying to convince her daughter, who had been raised as a Bible believing Christian but now has shown that she believes what is convenient in the Bible, that increasing abortions, allowing gay marriages, turning away from Israel, and redistribution of wealth through taxes were all reasons to not vote for Obama. Now finally the true reason her daughter voted for Obama came out; at least partly because of his ethnicity. And I am the one leftist bloggers call a racist, go figure!
I am sure that his riff will subside as time moves forward. We may never see eye to eye on President elect Obama’s policies, and politics, but we will find a way to have peace in our home.
Obama has succeeded in dividing Christians in America:
In California where they passed the the Protect Marriage Act with “nearly 70 percent of black voters and a slight majority of Hispanic voters a majority of those voted for Obama” (Yahoo News). Those same African American voters overwhelmingly voted for Obama. Many of those voters are Christians. Sounds like they were voting for a personality not policy when they voted for Obama. Obviously many Christians had to have voted for Obama which means they must support abortion on a whim, marriage of people of the same sex, turning away from Israel, weakening our military, and redistribution of wealth; which in my book is stealing. By dividing Christians we are weakened;
But He, knowing their thoughts, said to them:
“Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation,
and a house divided against a house falls.
Before all of my detractors out there call me a racist,
Let me tell you that I am just reporting what is fact. The events above actually happened in my living room and in California. My vote went to the person who came closest to my personal beliefs and my beliefs in the inherent word of God, the Bible. If Justice Thomas, Condoleezza Rice or someone of their stature and with their beliefs were to run for president I would be totally on board. For the record my pastor is African American and proud of it; praise God he did not support Obama. I know that I can’t win on this issue, especially with my daughter-in-law and leftists who read my blog, but for the “open-minded” folks out there I know you will understand.
So were do we go from here?
“If you’re not a liberal at twenty you have no heart,
if your not a conservative at forty you have no brain”
In my house I will try to keep the peace;
after all my children and step-children are young and educated in liberal schools and liberal colleges, they will all be over 40 someday. At my work I will try and keep the peace. In my country I will try and keep the peace. We have a new President, he is every American’s President not just those on the left. I will support him as much as I can except for the issues that I believe go against God’s word. At this point his race is of no consequence to me, his politics and world view are everything, how he governs is what is important.
“God guide the hand of our President Barack Obama”. Amen!

Is Obama Ready for this?
Would Russian be so bold if McCain won?
Russia has some change ready for Obama

“Change”, in this case, consists of missile deployments on the frontiers of NATO. Russian president Dmitri Medvedev announced the move yesterday in a speech that never once mentioned the new American President-elect, but caustically criticized the Western approach to Moscow. Medvedev also reversed course on missile disarmament in western Russia: (More on Russian build up)

The Racial Divide Continues
New national anthem: “My president is black”
There is a new national slogan/anthem catching on among America’s youth. It’s a popular rap song, a t-shirt, and a taunting chant.
It is this: “MY PRESIDENT IS BLACK.”
Scenes like this were repeated across the country after Election Day:(more Malkin)
Quote of the day
posted at 10:40 pm on November 6, 2008 by Allahpundit
“Less than fifty years ago, African-Americans were barred from public universities, restaurants, and even drinking fountains in many parts of the country. On Tuesday we came together and transcended that shameful legacy, electing an African-American to the country’s top job — which, in fact, appears to be his first actual job. Certainly, it doesn’t mean that racism has disappeared in America, but it is an undeniable mark of progress that a majority of voters no longer consider skin color nor a dangerously gullible naivete as a barrier to the presidency.”

And Congratulations to President Obama

Every American ought to pray for wisdom and judgment for President-elect Obama, for his safety and the safety of his country, and for the continued prosperity and greatness of America.

My thoughts exactly!
From Southern Appeal:
It will come as no surprise to anyone that I am not happy with the results of the election. I believe my country has made a serious mistake. I believe that it will have long term negative ramifications my children, and probably their children, will have to deal with.
That said, the country has spoken and in January Sen Obama will become my Commander-in-Chief. Consequently, while I expect to disagree with many of Mr. Obama’s policies I will have no tolerance for anything that smacks of Obama derangement syndrome. I am aware that the left did not afford President Bush this courtesy and their Bush=Hitler slur was disgraceful in the extreme. Nevertheless, two wrongs don’t make a right. Furthermore, we are better than that.
