Racists in Christian Clothing

I received this email the other day from a fellow whom I will keep anonymous. He's nice enough, just kind of gullible and a very over-the-edge conservative. Anyway, as I always do when I receive chain emails from this guy, I did a little investigation and found the letter was written by Jim Bramlett, a former vice president of the Christian Broadcasting Network.

Why did this not surprise me? Because I had heard of him before. He has claimed to have recordings of angels singing.


And he has authenticated letters from others who claim they heard the angels, too.


Anyway, I don't know about you, but anyone who claims to be hearing voices should probably have their meds increased.

Below is the text of the letter. Naturally (sadly) the writer shows his racist leanings right off the bat by his use of Barack Obama's middle name. For those who claim what's the big deal about including his middle name, my retort is why use it then if you don't do it regularly with other individuals' middle names.

Dear friends:

Barack Hussein Obama has taken the nation by storm. From obscurity, with zero executive experience, or much of any kind, he has vaulted into the position of Presidential frontrunner. It is stunning. On the surface, it appears attributable only to his eloquent oratory and his race. But an invisible factor may be a strong spiritual force behind him, causing some people to actually swoon in his presence.

I have been very concerned that he has publicly said that he does not believe Jesus is the only way to heaven. This makes both the Bible and Jesus a liar, and it means that Christ has died in vain. A person cannot be a true Christian who believes that there are other ways of forgiveness, salvation, and eternal life with God. Only Jesus has paid the price for that.

Therefore, there is, indeed, another spirit involved. And this spirit has come into our national life like a flood. Last week at Obama's acceptance speech, that spirit exalted itself in front of a Greek temple-like stage, and to a huge audience like in a Roman arena. Omama was portrayed as god-like. His voice thundered as a god's voice.

At the end, Democratic sympathizer Pastor Joel Hunter gave the benediction and shockingly invited everyone to close the prayer to their own (false) gods. This was surely an abomination, but it was compatible with Obama's expressed theology, and Hunter's leftist leanings.

God was not pleased.

And God says, "When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him" (Isaiah 59:19).

Enter Governor Sarah Palin. With incredible timing, the very next day, Sarah Palin also appeared out of nowhere. Her shocking selection as John McCain's running mate stunned the world and suddenly took all the wind out of Obama's sails.

We quickly learned that Sarah is a born-again, Spirit-filled Christian, attends church, and has been a ministry worker.

Sarah is that standard God has raised up to stop the flood. She has the anointing. You can tell by how the dogs are already viciously attacking her. But they will not be

She knows the One she serves and will not be intimidated.

Back in the 1980s, I sensed that Israel's little-known Benjamin Netanyahu was chosen by God for an important end-time role. I still believe that. I now have that same sense about Sarah Palin.

Today I did some checking and discovered that both her first and last names are biblical words, one in Hebrew the other in Greek:

Sarah. Wife of Abraham and mother of Isaac. In Hebrew, Sarah means "noble
woman" (Strong's 8283).

Palin. In Greek, the word means "renewal." (Strong's 3825).

A friend said he believes that Sarah Palin is a Deborah. Of Deborah, Smith's Bible Dictionary says, "A prophetess who judged Israel…. She was not so much a judge as one gifted with prophetic command…. and by virtue of her inspiration 'a mother in

Only God knows the future and how she may be used by Him, but may this noble woman serve to bring renewal in the land, and inspiration.


Apparently God has a vicious sense of humor. Looks like he doesn't suffer liars or fools gladly. I won't go so far to say He's pissed, but McCain's numbers are slipping every day.

Must be an invisible force.

Wow, Tim and I agree on something. This guy definately needs his meds increased. You certainly don't need any supernatural reasons to support McCain/Palin over Obama/Biden.

Other Side said...

lol. Though we disagree about the end result.

Hey thurmlee, got a question for you. I flipped over to your site. It looked interesting and anyway ... years ago I read some books my ex-wife had about Thomas Covenant. They were pretty cool. What does your site have to do with those books?
