Speak out against the Hatemongers: I signed the Petition. It was the Least I could do."Mr." Black is selectively quoting Jesus for Black's own ugly, racist, opportunistic ends. Jesus also spoke what came to be known as "The Golden Rule" into the same source that Black is quoting from. . . and "The Golden Rule" is the OPPOSITE of the ". . .measure . . .meted. . .again. . ." he's quoting. "The Golden Rule" says to treat others as you WOULD HAVE (future tense) THEM TREAT you--not as you have been (past tense) treated!--Norma----- Forwarded Message -----

Subject: Hang Obama for treason, because Jesus said what?
Dear Faithful America member,A Republican candidate in Florida is invoking the words of Jesus to argue that President Obama should be hanged for treason.Joshua Black, a candidate for state representative, voiced his agreement that "it's time to arrest and hang him high," then went on to state: "This would be exactly what the President has done to others, and, as Jesus said, 'the measure ye mete, it shall be meted to you again.'"Black's rhetoric is unusually outrageous, but it's just the latest example in a pattern of conservative Republicans exploiting Christianity to advance a hateful agenda and vilify President Obama.A few Republicans in Florida have begun to criticize Joshua Black's comments, but if the Republican Party is serious about putting an end to this kind of offensive rhetoric, they need to publicly denounce Black's candidacy and assure voters that he won't receive any support from the party.Tell the Florida governor and GOP: Denounce candidate who used Jesus' words to incite violence against President Obama.Thanks,Michael and Aaron
