    Not sure what that has to do with anything (as usual), but Obama has said:

    “More than 2,000 years ago, a child was born to two faithful travelers who could find rest only in a stable, among the cattle and the sheep. But this was not just any child. Christ’s birth made the angels rejoice and attracted shepherds and kings from afar. He was a manifestation of God’s love for us.”

    Or, “I wanted to host this breakfast for a simple reason — because as busy as we are, as many tasks as pile up, during this season, we are reminded that there’s something about the resurrection — something about the resurrection of our savior, Jesus Christ, that puts everything else in perspective.”

    Or, “For even after the passage of 2,000 years, we can still picture the moment in our mind’s eye. The young man from Nazareth marched through Jerusalem; object of scorn and derision and abuse and torture by an empire. The agony of crucifixion amid the cries of thieves. The discovery, just three days later, that would forever alter our world — that the Son of Man was not to be found in his tomb and that Jesus Christ had risen.”

    You guys told me he was an Atheist or a Muslim.

    Lincoln’s efforts united the nation, Obama’s efforts divides the nation.

    Lincoln united the country by using the army to crush southerners who chose to secede, rather than face a possible abolition of slavery. Are you saying Obama needs to do the same with the Tea Party?

    Even I think that’s a little extreme.

    Try ~30,000 in October and about 60,000 in the first two weeks of November. And that’s only in California.

    Lincoln also didn’t say “God” in the version of the Gettysburg Address that he read at Gettysburg and that Ken Burns used for his montage. It takes a conservative wing-nut to take that to Obama hatred.

    ^All some need to “take that to Obama hatred”: is a weather report.

    “While Bomboy said it’s impossible to say with certainty whether God really was included in the proclamation, numerous media outlets — the Associated Press, the Chicago Tribune and the Philadelphia Inquirer — reported on the Gettysburg Address at the time and indicated that “under God” was a part of the speech.

    The Boston Advertiser reportedly also noted at the time that the line was used as the address concluded.

    Joseph Ignatius Gilbert and Charles Hale, two reporters who were at the speech, both recounted hearing “under God” in the speech, journalism institute Poynter noted. It is believed that Lincoln also relied on the Associated Press version of the speech when composing later versions."


    Article from “The Blaze”


    That Lincoln included “under God” in his subsequent handwritten copies of the address is significant enough.

    Lincoln, the Republican president who freed the slaves.

    Yeah, he supported rights for minorities & opposed secession, too. 140 years later & the GOP has pretty much renounced everything Lincoln stood for.

    But I don’t think the man has a real understanding or belief in religion. like many he can say the words but he doesn’t live them.

    Hmmm. so you’re not saying he’s an Atheist, he just doesn’t believe? Or he doesn’t believe the way you want him to?

    You’re entitled to your opinions, but I think we’ve moved beyond faith testing for public office.

    SWR: sorry, man, I’m still laughing off that “snoopy fan” considers “the Blaze” a citable reference, ROFL!

    On the 150th Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, this Foreigner seriously asks if President Lincoln (if alive today) would support a nationally mandated healthcare system for all Americans.

    Just like every other country has.

    @dtroutma

    Notice that Abraham Lincoln himself wrote “under God” in his own handwritten copies of the address. If that’s not significant enough, then there is no reasoning with you.

    Those stupids who voted for him got what they deserved, but the rest of us don’t deserve what we are suffering.
