Fear of the Unknown

I am a member of several online communities and another member of one of these posted some disturbing quotes that he gathered about people who are "scared" of Barack Obama. See the rest here.

"When I first heard of Barack, a few days ago, the first thing I heard is that he is a guy who came out of nowhere and now many flock to his side. When my wife and I heard this, we both thought the same thing, the anti-christ. Now I am not claiming him to be, just something that triggered that thought in both of us.”
~Brian Raymond, 49 (a commenter on a Facebook Group called "Is Barak Obama The Antichrist?")

The "something that triggered that thought" was your indoctrinated fear of the unknown. Here are some people who also has (or had) fear of the unknown:

1. Conservatives (who think that change is bad and that anything different should be avoided because we don't know where it will lead)
2. Racists (who spread hate messages and teach their children to avoid people who are born different)
3. Bigots (who spread hate and teach their children to avoid people who think different)
4. Hitler (who fear the genes of the non-Aryan population)
5. Isolationists (who fear getting involved with foreign events so that they can feel safe at night)

People who didn't have that fear:

1. Columbus (who discovered the New World and allowed for the exploration of an area that would eventually be the homebase for freedom and equality to blossom and grow into what it is today)
2. Revolutionaries (who fought against the tyranny of England and tested an unknown system of government)
3. Astronauts (who repeatedly risk life and limb to explore space beyond what we can see from the ground)
4. Civil Rights Advocates (who risk their lives fight against racists and bigots to help grant women, gays, blacks, atheists, etc the freedoms to enjoy this life)
5. Medical Researchers (who sometimes spend their entire life searching for unknown cures for diseases that benefit everyone)
6. Explorers (who search the globe for new trade routes, bridge gaps in cultures, and find interesting things to put on the Discovery Channel)
7. Pioneers of the Western US (left the comfort of their homes in the east and spent months moving west in search of what they didn't know was there)
8. Engineers (who test the limits of human creations to impove the world around us)
9. The Military (who continue to battle an unknown enemy in an unknown environment for your beneift)

I suggest to 49-year-old Brian Raymond, stop being such a scared little child and learn about the issues. Please check out:


It may enlighten you and help you make an informed decision instead of one based on the fear of the unknown.

"the Anti-Christ"...LOL.
Well, the arrival of the antichrist is a harbinger of the beginning of the end times and the coming of Christ.

All good mindless, medieval, ignorant Christians want to see the end of civilization as we know it, and thus the promised 1000 yr rule of jebus. So logic says they should FLOCK to the polls to elect Obama.
Send that fucktard an Obama bumper sticker. Meanwhile, I call first dibs on his car and his miserable hovel, which he won't need when he's beamed up to heaven.

I used to think or at least wonder if Obama might be the antichrist. After seeing the last debate, however, I have pretty much decided that there is no way the antichrist could be that ignorant of the effect political decisions have on the general public. After Obama revealed his true, think-on-your-feet kind of intellect (or lack thereof), I actually started to feel a little sorry for him. He can read the heck out a speech someone else wrote for him, but when he has to tackle issues on his own, he falls flat on his face.

Thanks for stopping by F&B

If you are going to continue doing so, please be more specific. Obama has put almost all of his (scripted and non-scripted) speeches online and the MSM has put up the rare appearance that isn't flattering, so you should be able to provide links to whatever you think demonstrates a "lack of intellect" on Obama's part.

Are you seriously saying that you would rather have a completely rehearsed set of responses and a lack of honest comments when thinking about who youare voting for? Would you rather have Old Man McCain, who doesn't even know what his positions are (or were) or what he said yesterday? Would you rather have Hillary Clinton who's being promoted by the likes of Fox Noise because they know the dirt on her for the general election?

Oh yeah. Almost forgot.

"Real Christians" shouldn't be afraid of the anti-christ. Such a mythical being represents the end of this world as we know it. Any Christian who is afraid of the coming judgement should examine their life and figure out why they don't think God approves of their behavior. Unless their "faith" isn't as strong as they claim.
