tell me sweet little lies

Every now and then I get an errant email intended for someone else, but ultimately destined to be relegated to the gloomy depths of my bin folder. These are not spam, rather they are the result of being lumbered with a rather common name, and an email address that is easy to mistype.

In the wilds of Eau Claire, Wisconsin (named by America's Promise as one of the 100 Best Communities for Young People in 2007) there are a number of members of a family who keep emailing me asking me to pick up peppers for tonight's stir fry, asking me to pray for 'Billy' who has an exam tomorrow (and the prof is a hard grader), or confirming our booking at Central Wisconsin's most friendly family restaurant. Its a pity that they haven't stopped one evening, perhaps at the aforementioned restaurant, suddenly realised that their 'Dave' hasn't replied back to any of their mails, and maybe check to see if they have the right address for him. I was sure the lack of peppers on his arrival home last week would have been a give away, but apparently not as the mails keep on coming.

Normally these emails don't even get read, very few mails intended for me contain the subject line, "In Jesus' name", but one arrived last night that stopped me dead in my tracks. Sent from the ministry of Celeste and Loren Davis, it was forwarded to members of the church group that my namesake belongs. I've stripped out any identifying names, even though these people really deserve to be named and shamed if this is the type of rubbish they peddle.
Missionaries in Kenya know Obama

Thought you'd find this interesting. Celeste and Loren Davis are Missionaries in Africa and can shed some firsthand light on one of our Presidential candidates.

Thanks for sending out an alert about Obama. We are living and working in Kenya for almost twelve years now and know his family (tribe) well. They are the ones who were behind the recent Presidential election chaos here. Thousands of people have been displaced by election violence (over 350,000) and I don't know the last count of the dead. Obama, under 'friends of Obama' gave almost a million dollars to the opposition campaign who just happened to be his cousin, Raila Odinga, who is a socialist trained in east Germany... He has been trying to bring Kenya down for years and the last president threw him in prison for trying to subvert this country! December 27th elections brought cries from ODM (Odinga Camp) of rigged election. Obama and Raila speak daily. As we watch Obama rise in the US we are sure that whatever happens, he will use the same tactic, crying rigged election if he doesn't win, and possibly cause a race war in America.

What we would like you to know is what the American press has been keeping a dirty little secret. Obama IS a Muslim and he IS a racist and this is a fulfilment of the 9-11 threat that was just the beginning. Jihad is the only true Muslim way. We have been working with them for 20 years this July! He is not an American as we know it. Please encourage your friends and associates not to be taken in by those that are promoting him. It is world wide jihad. All our friends in Europe are very disturbed by the Muslim infiltration into their countries.

By the way, his true name is Barak Hussein Muhammed Obama. Won't that sound sweet to our enemies as they swear him in on the Koran!?

God Bless you.
Pray for us here in Kenya. We are still fighting for our nation to withstand the same kind of assault that every nation, including America, is fighting. Takeover from the outside to fit the new world order. As believers, this means we will be the first targets. Here in Kenya, not one mosque was burned down, but hundreds of churches were burned down, some with people in them, burned alive.

Jesus Christ is our peace, but the new world order of Globalism has infiltrated the church and confused believers into thinking that they can compromise and survive. It won't be so. I will send you a newsletter we sent out in February documenting in a more cohesive manner what I've tried to say in a few paragraphs.

Love, Celeste

I'm sure that this is typical of the hate-spam that has been circulated throughout this campaign, but distance and a lack of really conservative friends has shielded me from experiencing it first-hand thus far.

But with Sarah Palin now accusing Obama of "palling around with terrorists", its clear that smear campaigns aren't limited to the radical fringe of the Republican movement. In fact with Palin on the ticket, moderates in the party now find themselves being the radical fringe.

On Friday morning, just seven days after I sent in my application, my voting papers arrived thanks to the prompt action of Ronald Smith, the good City Clerk of New Haven, Connecticut. Two hours later my vote was speeding its way back in his direction. Never in my life have I felt my vote to matter as much; lets hope there are many more people out there who feel the same.
