"This is why.............."

(Statements in  Mike Curtiss's Post)
In New Delhi, Obama walked the grounds of Humayun's Tomb. "Spectacular," he remarked as he left.

While he didn't stop at any of his childhood haunts in Jakarta, where he lived for four years, Obama said he found it "a little disorienting" to return to a modernized city he remembered for streets crowded with becaks and bemos when he moved there with his mother in 1967.

"I feel
great affection for the people here,” he said at a news conference shortly after arriving. “The sights and the sounds and the memories all feel very familiar."

This is why the founding fathers said to NEVER elect a person to be President who isn't a Native Born, natural citizen, because they have their "affections" to their
homeland or another country of their upbringing..... There is a difference between "affection" and "compassion".... We are to have compassion on others, but our "affections" are...or show our allegiance to some other peoples or places other than our own home country or our own people.  Your "allegiance is to you own people  FIRST. If you are not a "native son" of a country then you will have conflicting biases and attitudes that divide your allegiance.  Especially if you have to go to war with
that country of your origin or upbringing.  Your allegiance is divided.  We have to know that any President of our country is UN-divided in his allegiance.

My allegiance, my great affections is to my NEW birth country... the Kingdom of God.  
We are in the world but no longer "OF" this world if you have accepted Yashua (Jesus) as your LORD AND SAVIOR.

Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
