UPDATE: Pastor takes down Obama/Osama sign, gives pathetic excuse

Regarding Jonesville Church of God in upstate South Carolina that a few days ago caused a furor with it's vile church sign attempting to link presidential candidate Barack Obama to Osama Bin Laden: today it's being reported that Pastor Roger Byrd chickened out and removed the message.

And why did Byrd do this in the first place? In his own words...

"His name is so close to Osama I feeling might be Islamic therefore he doesn't recognize Christ."
Ummmm... saywhu...?

So simply because "Obama" sounded "Islamic" (whatever the hell that means) that this meant he automatically had to be assigned a religion? Isn't that fully counter to everything that Jesus, and then Paul and the other apostles, preached?

Roger Byrd can't get out of this no matter what he tries. It's obvious to everyone that this was a petty blow, motivated by worldly politics, that did nothing but inflict damage to the testimony of sincere believers. There is nothing constructive or beneficial that this preacher and his church did in the least bit.

And if these professed Christians spent as much time living humbly for Christ as they do with obsessing on things of this passing realm, this would indeed be a much happier world.
