With less than a week until the general election, Christians are stepping up their involvement in the race.

There is, a Website that invites Christians to pray for all candidates but singles out Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and her family for extra prayers.

The goal is to blanket the country with prayers for Palin by having someone in every zip code pray for the GOP vice presidential nominee. From the Website:

There is a spiritual battle waging over the United States of America. This website is a call to pray for those who are in authority over us now as well as those who will be elected to become the leaders of our country. Because Sarah Palin has been thrust suddenly into the spotlight, we are calling all Christians to say an extra prayer for Sarah.

The site is paid for by “supporters of McCain-Palin.”

In contrast, over at the unchallenged capital of crackpottery, WorldNetDaily, columnist Janet Porter taps the crazy keg with a grave warning to Christians. In a piece subtly titled, “You cannot be a Christian and vote for Obama,” Porter argues that eternal damnation awaits the souls of any who would commit the most grievous of deadly sins –  voting for the Democratic presidential nominee. Not surprisingly, Porter’s thesis rests on Sen. Barack Obama’s pro-choice position on abortion.

To all those who name the name of Christ who plan to willfully disobey Him by voting for Obama, take warning. Not only is our nation in grave danger, according to the Word of God, so are you.

Repent, ye sinners and Obama supporters!

Army Data Shows Constraints on Troop Increase Potential

If President Obama orders an additional 30,000 to 40,000 troops to Afghanistan, he will be deploying practically every available U.S. Army brigade to war, leaving few units in reserve in case of an unforeseen emergency and further stressing a force that has seen repeated combat deployments since 2002.
