I cannot recall the number of times I have heard my fellow Christian brothers and sisters repeated the phrase: “I want to love as Jesus does”. I have even used this phrase countless times.

We understand your patriotism and love for your country so please understand our love for ours. Obama is a traitor who wants to put your lives in danger to…
