With his projected win, Obama will become the nation's 44th president and its first African-American leader.

Re: Barack Obama Elected President of United State

I'm happy in a historic sense. I hope brings healing to the nation in that regard. But we are suppose to identify with our christianity above everything.

This is what else bothers me?

Well I think he will not last long, and we will end up with Biden as our President. Which may have been the plan all along.

Some of the people you posted also supported McCain.....would you have posted the same thing if McCain had won????????????? (i.e. Muslims, Gays and Lesbians). This WAS NOT I repeat WAS NOT a Christian or Apostolic Election. This was clearly a secular election. Now its YOUR job to pray for the leaders of our country. Yall kill me with all these assumptions of who would and would not be happy. Let it go. This aint gonna make Obama nor McCain have stammering lips any time soon. Stop making this about Christianity or views. ITS NOT. Never has been. Plain and simple.
