Samuel Wurzelbacher, the conservative activist popularly known as “Joe the Plumber,” is circulating a letter praising President Barack Obama‘s life story and crediting Christianity with his “miraculous” ascent to the presidency.
Wurzelbacher is the Republican candidate challenging longtime Ohio Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur. He gained national fame during the 2008 election after he confronted Obama on tax policy during a campaign stop.
The letter, provided to The Daily Caller, strikes a respectful tone, at one point saying that Obama “came to Christ and he is my brother.” Fringe Obama opponents often claim that the president is secretly a Muslim.
“It’s not … well, Christian” to question Obama’s religious faith, wrote Wurzelbacher.
“One of the reasons I really dig Christianity is that it’s so incredibly powerful and amazing,” he wrote. “The lives of millions of people have been given meaning by their faith in Christ. And what better confirmation of that strength do we have than the life story of President Obama?”
Wurzelbacher then provided a brief summary of the president’s biography, implying that Obama’s Christian faith played a key role in his life’s successes.
“Imagine being the child of a mixed-race marriage – especially in the turbulent 60’s and free-wheeling ’70s,” he wrote. “And when you throw in that dad was a Muslim and mom an atheist – you know it could not have been easy – and they were Communists for crying out loud!
“At age six, young Barry was shipped off to Indonesia and exposed to Islam for several years. His parents divorced, he returned to the U.S. and Barack was placed with his grandparents. By the time he got to college, he was experimenting with cocaine, marijuana and even thought about using heroin.”
“After Barack Hussein Obama suddenly cast-off his Muslim roots, rejected his mother’s disbelief in God, turned tail on the Islam of his early life and converted to Christianity – BLAM – he’s elected President,” wrote Wurzelbacher. “Anyone who believes the two things are not connected is being disingenuous at best. I don’t know how or when it happened, whether when he was partying at college or five minutes before he first decided to run for office, but it doesn’t matter – he came to Christ and he is my brother.”
The letter is being sent to churches ahead of the November election. According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Wurzelbacher told the Christian Broadcast Network that he will share the story of his own conversion to Christianity on an upcoming episode of the “700 Club.”
- Infanticide(killing a baby that survives an abortion).
- Homosexual marriage.
- Accepting donations from a vile and contemptuous atheist such as Bill Maher.
- Attending a church for 20 years where the pastor preaches hate filled Black Liberation Theology.
- Being associated with a rabid anti-American unrepentant domestic terrorist by the name of Bill Ayers.
- Running up more debt on the American people in three years than ALL the other presidents before him(George Washington-George W. Bush)
- Being associated with individuals and organizations that are profoundly anti-Christian
Obama supports all of these plus more and he is offended by Christian symbols, such as when he gave a speech at Georgetown University. He had a Christian symbol covered:
Joe, all I can say is please read about deceivers in the Bible and especially the following verse, which if read it carefully, every aspect of it pertains to Obama
2 Timothy 3:1-7 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
