Obama should dispel the Rumors about His Citizenship

I don’t want Obama to be our next president, but I also don’t like rumors. If something about him is true (such as his support for homosexual marriage, his support for abortion on demand, and his ties to Black Liberation Theology) then I believe these things should be exposed and talked about.

After reading this article from the Israel Insider, it does seem that there is a question as to whether he is a natural born citizen of the United States. By refusing to answer why his online- posted Birth Certificate seems to be illegitimate, he helps fuel the rumors.

Obama should immediately prove his place of birth by allowing the State of Hawaii to release their records to the public.

I agree that we should talk about Obama's positions on freedom of choice and equal rights for homosexuals. Those are campaign issues and he should be asked to state why he feels the way he does and McCain should as well.

I would also welcome an intelligent discussion of Black Liberation Theology. What we have had so far is fear-mongering, and stereotyping.

For Christians, it is worthwhile and important to understand the underpinnings of liberation theology, the different life experience and cultural history of African-Americans, and the implications of this theology on the political views of those who believe it. This should be a theological discussion, not a "did you hear what he said?" gabfest like most of the Rev. Wright episode. (I would suggest watching the 2 episodes of Bill Moyer's PBS show in which he interviewed Wright and another with theologian James Cone.)
