Switch to Forum Live View Obama Waffles, courtesy of the FRC

At the annual Washington gathering of the Christian right sponsored by the political arm of the Family Research Council, (Focus on the Family and others), they were selling
Obama Waffles. While I understand that “waffling” idea, the whole thing was tasteless and bigoted. It perpetuated the idea of Obama being Muslim; the box gave Obama caricature of Aunt Jamima. There was a rap on the box, which was insulting as were the directions to making the waffles.
The FRC, which is always crying about persecution, then pulls as stunt like this and of course, during the election year. Their excuse has yet to be published, which should be interesting being that they’re two faced, imo!
This is what Focus on the Family, the FRC, and the other RR groups are all about. Misinformation, lies, what happened to their 10 commandments? No lying, baring false witness? I guess it only applies when they want it applied.
Truth is totally subjective to them. Their desire is for control and power over the population of this country. They will justify anything to get what they want and this is another wonderful example…deceit. I wonder if Jesus approves of their behavior?
Probably not but then again, Jesus is nothing more than a figurehead to them, giving them the means to acquire what they want.

Yea, I heard about it.
I'm very disappointed with Focus and many other groups who preach love and inclusion and them turn around and spread hate and separation. God will judge them.
