Church sign: Obama election ‘is sin against the Lord’
CNN’s Rick Sanchez reported on a church marquee that reads “America we have a Muslim president. This is a sin against the Lord.” Mark Holick is pastor of The Spirit One Christian Center in Wichita, Kansas where the sign is being displayed.
Holick told KSNW, “The main point of the marquee is to cause the Christians to understand he is not a Christian, Again, they will call me and they will tell me that he’s not a Muslim because he is a Christian. That’s not the point. The point is he’s not a Christian.”
Sanchez talked to Wayne Slater who is the Sr. political write for the Dallas Morning News. “It’s absolutely not true. He was born in the United States. Barack Obama. He is not a Muslim. Yet, there are people who hold on to this and part of this, i think, is an intent to believe what people want to believe about their environment because their environment is changing,” said Slater.
