Color versus Character

Obama becomes President.

For many people, their dream is about to become a nightmare.

To elect an African American to be the president of the United States is historic. Too bad the wrong man got the job. Too bad that Martin Luther King's dream didn't come true in this election. Part of his dream was for a day when someone would not be "judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

I remember the rhetoric during the campaign when many people claimed the reason people wouldn’t vote for Obama is because they were racist.

Wasn't it possible that some people were more concerned about character than color?

Sadly, some preferred color over character. Many people ignored their own values to elect the most liberal Senator. People who claimed to be Christian or prolife voted for a man who is their enemy. They ignored his character.

I will continue to pray for Obama. I will pray that God will frustrate his plans to wipe out all protections for the unborn. I will pray that his liberal, socialist agenda will not prevail.

And I will hope for the day when color or race will not be determining factors but that content and character will be.

Here is the I Have a Dream speech.
