Barack Obama is a blithering imbecile

Here’s a hint to politicians (but one that applies to everybody): don’t talk about something you know too little about, or you will come across as a fool. Even my three year-old niece knows when someone’s full of it…her latest favorite word being “moron”. I think it’s absolutely precious!

So, what cow pile does The Great Black Hope step into this time? The same one Mitt Romney Mormon-at-Large has…the politics of faith. To quote the junior senator of Illinois:

“Somehow, somewhere along the way, faith stopped being used to bring us together and faith started being used to drive us apart,” the Democratic presidential candidate said in a 30-minute speech before the national meeting of the United Church of Christ.

“Faith got hijacked, partly because of the so-called leaders of the Christian Right, all too eager to exploit what divides us,” the Illinois senator said.

“At every opportunity, they’ve told evangelical Christians that Democrats disrespect their values and dislike their church, while suggesting to the rest of the country that religious Americans care only about issues like abortion and gay marriage, school prayer and intelligent design,” according to an advance copy of his speech.

“There was even a time when the Christian Coalition determined that its number one legislative priority was tax cuts for the rich,” Obama said. “I don’t know what Bible they’re reading, but it doesn’t jibe with my version.”

Granted, Senator Obama has a conflicted religious history, capped off with his current attendence of an apostate church. So his ignorance is almost forgivable…but given his own politicization of the issue, I’m willing to rectify his problem. Namely, he’s obviously uneducated concerning the fact that history has born out what Jesus Christ Himself said about the Christian faith…that it is inherently divisive.

The Christian faith is exclusive…i.e., if you believe in Christ, it doesn’t allow you to be a member of another religious faith or to have ecumenical relationships with them. The reason is that the principle need of humanity, salvation from sin, comes from only one Source, Jesus Christ, who requires the convert to turn from old beliefs and wholeheartedly surrender to Him. And these facts are very clearly understood from the Bible. It is because of the fact that it is completely separate, exclusive, and clear is why history has shown it to be a faith constantly at odds with the rest of the world; one that has in every era been under attack. Jesus said to expect persecution for not kowtowing to the rest of the world (John 15:18-25) based on the association with Him. The Bible tells us to remain theologically separate from the world (Leviticus 20:7/1 Peter 1:16, 2 Corinthians 6:14-18).

Now, let’s do some examination of (a.k.a. let’s fisk) Senator Obama’s statements.

“Somehow, somewhere along the way, faith stopped being used to bring us together and faith started being used to drive us apart.”

He’s referring to the American people in a political sense. As stated above, faith never was meant to bring everyone together…it was to bring individuals to God. It wouldn’t be true even if everyone in this country were a Bible-believing Christian.

“Faith got hijacked, partly because of the so-called leaders of the Christian Right, all too eager to exploit what divides us.”

“Hijacked”? This is partially true, inasmuch as the religious right is willing to compromise one faith to collude with another as long as they’re politically conservative. I’m supportive of using the citizen’s voice to make concerns of Christians heard, but I’m not supportive of either getting together with different faiths to do so (various organizations exist as part of the religious right) or allying with the government to accomplish goals involving the stifling of presenting the gospel message (the largely unknown costs of faith-based initiatives).

However, Obama’s talking in the political sense, so what exactly is being hijacked? Nothing…the issue is the conservative values espoused by the movement and the fact that they are grounded in biblical standards that, by its assertion, do not change (Psalm 119:89, Matthew 24:35; Luke 16:17). His problem is with God, not with the religious right, and he should take it up with Him.

“At every opportunity, they’ve told evangelical Christians that Democrats disrespect their values and dislike their church, while suggesting to the rest of the country that religious Americans care only about issues like abortion and gay marriage, school prayer and intelligent design.”

Oh, so Democrats don’t disrespect godly values? Religious Americans do care about other issues aside from those listed, but, boy-howdy, those be some mighty big issues! God certainly does not support unfettered abortion…there are many quotations possible to support this. God also doesn’t support gay marriage, or gay anything, for that matter…again, myriad quotations can be made. School prayer is indisputably a matter of unreasonably restricted free speech, and intelligent design is a matter of full disclosure and totality of education. For Democrats/liberals to rail against conservatives who promote these issues while still claiming to be believers is indicative of a major problem with their understanding of God and true faith based on the Bible.

“There was even a time when the Christian Coalition determined that its number one legislative priority was tax cuts for the rich,” Obama said. “I don’t know what Bible they’re reading, but it doesn’t jibe with my version.”

You should try reading it, to begin with. You’d notice that the Bible says nothing about taxation aside from how the theocratic monarchy of ancient Israel raised money (not applicable in a secular democratic representative republic such as ours) and Jesus’ famous answer to the Pharisaic tax question (Mark 12:17). Then again, one must cut through the Democratic lingo and come to realize that they oppose ANY tax cut, as they invariably go to help small business owners, who supply most jobs in this country and whom Democrats hate for whatever reason. That only underscores what was pointed out earlier that the religious right is a politically conservative movement first and foremost.

Anyway, yeah. The Magic Negro needs to stick to his kum-ba-ya spirituality.
