Obama’s Christianity doubtful because of abortion stand, Star Parker says

Washington DC, Aug 7, 2008 / 01:49 am (CNA).- Star Parker, a black conservative author and activist, has said presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama’s insistence that he is a Christian should be questioned because of his “disregard and disrespect for human life” as evidenced by his support for abortion.

Speaking in an interview with Cybercast News Service, Parker said “Based on his disregard and disrespect for human life, we should question his insistence that he’s a Christian. It is inconsistent with the biblical world view to think that not only is abortion okay, but he goes so far as to support partial-birth abortion.”

A one-time single mother who was once on welfare herself, Parker further argued that Obama’s support for certain welfare policies “will destroy what’s left of the black family.”

Parker, who heads the CURE think-tank focused on race and poverty issues, also declared she would never support someone “just because of their race.”

    As much as I would like, no, love to so see a person who is at least 50% Black to ascend to the presidency of the United States, Barack Obama comes laden with some of the worst traits of the Democratic far left, e.g. a strong commitment to homosexual "marriage" and disturbing views on abortion and socialized medicine.
    What makes his possible presidency most unsettling is the very good likelihood that the Democrats will increase their control over the Congress. One party rule in Washington is always detrimental to the public as a whole. I am also very concerned about the Supreme Court and the likelihood of one or two vacancies over the next four years. We need at least one more conservative on The Court to ensure that the Constitution, as written, will be respected and will not be toyed with.
