Even many liberals turning against Obama on his decision to force Catholic institutions to violate their religious tenets in health care coverage
From the Washington comPost:
The White House sought Tuesday to soothe concerns over a controversial birth control rule that has led to Republican attacks and tension among close allies of the administration.
The efforts followed mounting criticism from Catholics and other faith leaders that a new rule requiring certain religious institutions to cover contraception as part of their employee health plans violates their constitutional rights.
And they came as White House officials began hearing complaints from some of their own allies and advisers, who view the rule as a policy mistake that feeds what they see as an unfair charge from Republicans: that President Obama is anti-religion. (Yeah, really! It’s unfair to note that the guy is pro-abortion, thumbs his nose at the church and the Constitution to throw a bone to his moonbat base, etc. … but hey, where would you get the crazy idea that the guy is anti-religion or anything? – CL)
Even Chris Matthews? Dude, when Tingles says his boy’s wrong, that should make the front page of the comPost!
Normally, the Catholic church runs interference for the Democrats. I’m guessing that’s why Chairman Zero shoved this down their throats: he figured they’d stick with him and his party like they always do. Considering they backed ObamaCare in the first place, I’m not sure why they are surprised by this. Unless they thought they could get a waiver just like every other B.O.-friendly organization that also didn’t want to be subject to ObamaCare’s onerous requirements.
You know, I’m getting a sneaky suspicion that maybe Jesse Jackson doesn’t know that much about Jesus and is more interested in political agendas than in the Lord’s agenda. Maybe, that is. Details:
Veteran activist the Rev. Jesse Jackson compared the global anti-capitalist movement to the U.S. civil rights struggle, the battle against apartheid in South Africa and the fight for Indian independence during a visit to an Occupy camp in London on Thursday.
“Jesus was an Occupier, born under a death warrant, a Jew by religion, born in poverty under Roman occupation,” the two-time candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination told a crowd near Saint Paul’s Cathedral. “Gandhi was an Occupier, Martin Luther King was an Occupier, (Nelson) Mandela was an Occupier.”
Look, Jess, Jesus never stayed where he wasn’t welcome. He still doesn’t. The Occupy trash, on the other hand, is defined by their insistence on staying where they aren’t welcome.
Additionally, comparing the Occupy vermin to Jesus, MLK, and Gandhi is appallingly offensive. Jesus died for the sins of the world, while MLK and Gandhi were willing to die (and did so) for their cause. There is not a SINGLE Occupy scumbag who would die for his/her cause…especially since they have NO FRIGGIN’ CLUE what their “cause” is, other than to commit acts of crime in their zealous attempts to avoid responsibility for their own lives and to live off the public teat in perpetuity.
Jess, I say this with all the love that this Christian can muster: You suck.
UPDATED: Op-ed: If Tebow’s Broncos win the Super Bowl, then Christians will attack mosques, gays, and immigrants…or something
You would expect to find such a disjointed absurd contention from a moonbat rag or MSNBC (pardon the redundancy). But this is from a rabbi, of all people, at The Jewish Week:
If Tebow wins the Super Bowl, against all odds, it will buoy his faithful, and emboldened faithful can do insane things, like burning mosques, bashing gays and indiscriminately banishing immigrants. While America has become more inclusive since Jerry Falwell’s first political forays, a Tebow triumph could set those efforts back considerably.
See, Christians didn’t burn mosques, attack gays, or try to force immigrants (legal? illegal? doesn’t say) out of America after 9/11. No, instead the proverbial straw to break the camelhumping jihadist’s back would be…a Super Bowl win? By a team with a QB who espouses the exact opposite behavior of that predicted by the rabbi.
Look, as an FSU guy, I’m not the biggest Tebow fan by anyone’s definition, and the tears he always childishly cried after a loss were rich and delicious. That said, I more than respect the guy for his faith, character, and behavior. Anti-Christian bigotry is one thing. But the rabbi here is really stretching to create some bigotry here.
UPDATED (12/15/2011 – 08:22 AM EST): WOW! The entire column has been scrapped, removed from the rag’s web site. Down the memory hole, as if it never really happened! I’m guessing the online fishwrap got more than its fair share of vocal criticism, and it wanted the mess to go away post haste. Words have consequences, pal! 😆
I’m guessing he learned this in Rev. Wright’s coop, since he hasn’t stepped foot in a church in D.C. since getting elected three years ago. Anywho, the galling quote:
Urging Congress again to pass a portion of his jobs bill, President Obama claimed Wednesday that God is on his side.
Mr. Obama was standing at the D.C. side of the Key Bridge, calling attention to America’s crumbling infrastructure and the need to put more construction workers back on the job. He criticized House Republicans for ignoring his legislation while approving a measure that reaffirms “In God We Trust” as the national motto.
“That’s not putting people back to work,” Mr. Obama said. “I trust in God, but God wants to see us help ourselves by putting people back to work.”
Considering B.O.’s jobs bill doesn’t put anyone back to work and does nothing to promote a job-creating business environment, I don’t see how the Almighty could support Chairman Zero’s plan. But whatevs, pal.
At least his spokestool is on the same page as God. Or not.
A few hours later, an Associated Press reporter questioned Carney at his daily briefing about the president’s choice of words.
“Isn’t it a bit much to bring God into the jobs debate?” the reporter asked.
Carney responded: “I believe that the phrase from the Bible is, ‘The Lord helps those who help themselves.’”
The only problem: Carney had the wrong source.
When the official transcript of the daily briefing arrived in reporters’ inboxes in the late afternoon, it offered this clarification at the top: “This common phrase does not appear in the Bible.”
You’ll have to forgive The One’s minions for not knowing Scripture very well. They think their leader is God.
And no, I’m not saying I think B.O. is a Muslim. I think it’s pretty clear that Barry O worships a deity that he holds to be much higher than God, Allah, or any other deity…and that deity is Barack Hussein Obama.
But here’s what I mean: while the NYT is giving a virtual full cavity search to all GOP candidates about their religious backgrounds, such a vetting of then-candidate Obama’s faith just didn’t happen. Oh, sure, they did the obligatory “Obama went to Rev. Wright’s church” bit, but that was it. But here’s what the head honcho at the Old Gray Hag is saying these days:
This year’s Republican primary season offers us an important opportunity to confront our scruples about the privacy of faith in public life — and to get over them. We have an unusually large number of candidates, including putative front-runners, who belong to churches that are mysterious or suspect to many Americans. Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman are Mormons, a faith that many conservative Christians have been taught is a “cult” and that many others think is just weird. (Huntsman says he is not “overly religious.”) Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum are all affiliated with fervid subsets of evangelical Christianity, which has raised concerns about their respect for the separation of church and state, not to mention the separation of fact and fiction.
Notice that Keller thinks that it is WE Christians who must “get over” our “scruples about the privacy of faith in public life”? Let that sink in. We need to “get over” our scruples? I guess when you’re a liberal and have no scruples (pardon the redundancy), then you think it’s automatic that everyone else is without scruples, too.
Also notice that Keller lets the mask slip: “not to mention the separation of fact and fiction”. Because to liberals like Keller, belief in God is belief in fiction. Funny, because while Keller finds Santorum’s Catholic background to be a “fervid subset of evangelical Christianity”, Keller himself is an alleged Roman Catholic himself! If I didn’t know any better, I’d say that Keller was a bit sloppy on his research here. Yeah, I know, how crazy of me to think the MSM is lazy in doing its job!
Well, at least the NYT is consistent with its contempt for all faiths. Hmm? What’s that? Oh, that’s right…
Among a dreary Republican field, Herman Cain stands out for using religious bigotry to gain political traction for his presidential ambitions.
Mr. Cain, a former pizza executive, started a few months ago by telling a reporter that he would not be comfortable with a Muslim in his cabinet. During a televised debate last month, he said his discomfort was due to the intention of some Muslims “to kill us.”
To recap: Muslims are not crazy and are beyond questioning, but Christians are crazy and need to be thoroughly
scourged questioned. Got it. Thanks for the clarification.
See, when you have conservative candidates that are seemingly genuine in practicing their Christian faith and don’t modify it to fit with politically correct orthodoxy, the NYT and the rest of their MSM ilk find such candidates to be disturbing. But when you have a leftist who supposedly comes from the same religion as these conservatives, yet said leftist bastardizes and mutates that religion to be more politically correct, then the left and the MSM (pardon the redundancy) are absolutely cool with it. It doesn’t matter that the God constructed by Obama and Keller doesn’t exist…just so long as they don’t have to look at people like me who worships the God that does exist. Keller is cool with B.O. worshiping a false God, but he loathes Normal Americans who worship the true God.
Nope…no liberal media bias!
He is risen! God bless, my friends!
The U.S. government under Barack Obama is deeply committed to battling any belittlement, criticism, or questioning of Islam. (“I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States,” he said, “to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”)
At the same time, however, it is OK, in the Obama regime [SEE BELOW FOR AN UPDATE], for the U.S. government to burn Bibles. Yes, that’s right. Bibles were sent to U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. But the U.S. government determined that the presence of Bibles in this “devoutly Muslim country” might inflame the natives. So they burned them. Why did they burn them? Because it is military policy to burn its trash.
So, the Bibles, according to U.S. policy, are trash, garbage, and it’s OK to burn them.
When it comes to the Koran, however, an official Department of Defense memo specifies a rather different procedure. Item 4, “Handling”:
- Clean gloves will be put on in full view of the detainees prior to handling.
- Two hands will be used at all times when handling the Koran in manner signaling respect and reverence. Care should be used so that the right hand is the primary one used to manipulate any part of the Koran due to the cultural association with the left hand. Handle the Koran as if it were a fragile piece of delicate art.
Isn’t that nice? Handle it “as if it were a fragile piece of delicate art.” But burn the Bible because it is just part of your trash.
If jihadism doesn’t kill us, political correctness will.
I’m not worried. Why? Because I’m but a mere nomad on this mudball in this lifetime, biding my time until God calls me to my real and eternal Home. Those of you who aren’t so sure, though? Well, sucks for you.
Perhaps had it been a Cowboy Poem, His Senility may have remembered to include a reference to the Creator of the universe. Instead, it was “one nation, indivisible…”
Thanks again, NV!
Road trip to TN for the holidays. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas, and remember the reason for the season! 🙂
My apologies for making you fine folks wait this long for my coveted opinion on the Gainesville Koran burning thing. I know you have been waiting with bated breath. 😆
First of all, anything that originates in Gainesville is stupid. That goes without saying. 😀
Secondly, the pastor who is doing this cannot be doing this with Christian intentions. While our Bible teaches us that there is only one way to Heaven (and that’s through faith in Jesus) and that we are to be unapologetic and unashamed of Him in every way, it teaches us a lot of other things, too. Intentionally enflaming a lot of people, without regard for anyone who may be adversely affected, is not a Christian trait. This is not being done with love in his heart, at least not in any way that I can see.
Finally, General Petraeus says it’s a horrible idea in terms of the dangers that the burning could bring to our troops. I’ll defer to his superior judgment on that matter, so if he says it endangers the troops, that’s good enough for me to oppose it.
All that said, I find the reaction of the left to be infuriating and hypocritical.
For one, President Training Wheels has opined that the Koran burning is a horrible thing to do. Shouldn’t he be saying something like “I support their First Amendment right to do this. I’m not going to comment on the wisdom of doing it, though.”? I mean, he had no qualms about Muslims building a mosque on Ground Zero, saying that the First Amendment was sacred. Now that a group of maybe 50 people want to exercise their First Amendment rights, suddenly it’s not a good idea? President Kick#ss is voting “Present” on the wisdom of building a Ground Zero mosque but voting “No!” on the wisdom of Koran burning.
Also, part of what this pastor is doing is (he claims) based on his observation that Islam is a violent religion. So how does the Muslim world react to this pastor’s claims of violence in their religion? Why, they react with threats of violence, that’s how! Way to prove your opposition right, Ahmed.
Finally, isn’t it refreshing (or sad, take your pick) to finally find a religion around which the left can rally? After crapping on Christianity since time immemorial, the left finally gets around to fighting for a religion…and it’s a religion that wants them dead. Friggin’ brilliant, leftards. Ace sums it up beautifully (profanity redacted):
Furthermore, we continue to encourage Islamist killers. Every time they kill, what message does the nation and its communicative institutions parrot over and over?
1) Islam is a religion of peace.
2) Islam is one of the world’s “great religions.”
3) The overwhelming majority of Islam’s faithful are good, pious people.
Every time they murder in the name of Allah, then, we all collectively begin shouting how f##king wonderful Allah is.
Is it any surprise they continue to murder us then? They kill us, and we then proselytize on their behalf.
I’m not pulling a Charlie Crist here and waffling on the matter. I think the Gainesville church should drop the idea of burning Korans, for reasons both Christian and strategic in nature. But I don’t need the hypocritical, politically correct left telling us about how bad it is, as their views ring quite hollow.
Boy, is that gonna complicate church services across this country or what?
Here’s Bill Press, trying to define that constitutional separation of “sacred” and “God”, or something:
I guess since liberals have such a tough time wrapping their pointy heads around Christianity, they are able to perform such mind-numbing acts of mental contortion. Otherwise, how in the h3ll do you say, with a straight face, that mentioning God at a “sacred” place is “not appropriate”?
Liberalism really is a mental disorder!
A wise man’s heart directs him toward the right, but the foolish man’s heart directs him toward the left.
Maybe cursing offends you, and maybe it doesn’t. But I think we can all agree that it’s probably not going to rank very highly on the “brilliant ideas” scale to drop an “SOB” at a Kentucky church picnic while trolling for votes, no?
Low-hanging fruit, my friends. But don’t deprive me of the fun of seeing the Speaker of the House, soon after her “the Word made flesh must guide our public policy”, having to tell us exactly when the Word was made flesh. I’m guessing Jesus wouldn’t have been too thrilled at being unceremoniously sucked out of Mary’s virgin womb, but hey, I wasn’t there, now was I? Excerpt from CNS News ( with video clip):
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), a Catholic, publicly stated earlier this year that she had a duty to pursue policies “in keeping with the values” of Jesus Christ, the “Word made Flesh.” But at a press briefing last week, when reminded of this statement, Pelosi declined to say when Jesus got the right to life.
“Whenever it was,” said Pelosi, “we bow our heads when we talk about it in church, and that’s where I’d like to talk about that.”
Didn’t seem to bother her to talk about it outside of church when she was on her “Word made flesh” roll in three months prior to this retreat, did it?
Pelosi: I pray to St. Joseph that he helps us pass this baby-killing legislation as “life-affirming”
Now she’s taunting people of faith. That’s all this (video link) could be. From San Fran Nan’s cakehole attached to that botox-riddled grill of hers:
Today is the feast of St. Joseph the Worker, particularly important to Italian-Americans. It’s a day where we remember and pray to St. Joseph to benefit the workers of America, and that’s exactly what our health-care bill will do. … Every order that you can think of was there [on a list of endorsements], saying they wanted us to pass this life-affirming legislation.
I’m sure God will be pleased, no? For those of you on the left, that was a sarcastic and rhetorical question.
Details (including video) here.
He’s got a point, I guess. I mean, if I had a dollar for every time I beat a woman who wore a revealing burqa, committed public executions, kept women from schools and the workplace, and mutilated female genitalia (all in the name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ), I’d be rich! And by “rich”, I mean “wouldn’t even have a dollar”!
I guess it goes without saying that both of his viewers are agnostic, so there’s no need to worry about offending anyone.
Romans 16:17-18 says thusly:
17 Now I urge you, brethren, keep your eye on those who cause dissensions and hindrances contrary to the teaching which you learned, and turn away from them.
18 For such men are slaves, not of our Lord Christ but of their own appetites; and by their smooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting.
The King James version uses the term “simple” instead of “unsuspecting”, which I think is more appropriate. Still, God’s point is well made.
A Catholic priest in Miami was caught breaking his vow of celibacy. As a result, he promptly apologized, repented, and went back to honoring his vow.
Just kidding. He decided that vows mean nothing and decided to go to a church that would be more accepting of his newly found “lifestyle”. Details:
A popular U.S. Roman Catholic priest photographed frolicking with a woman on a Florida beach announced on Thursday he had joined the Episcopal Church to pursue the priesthood in a faith that allows married clergy.
“I’ve seen with my own eyes how many brothers of mine serve God as married men and with the blessing of having their own families,” said Father Alberto Cutie, whose removal from his Miami Beach parish prompted public debate about the Catholic Church’s celibacy requirement for priests. …
Let me get a couple of things out of the way here.
First of all, there is nothing in the Bible that says God expects clergy to remain unmarried. Why the Catholic church deems otherwise is beyond me. However, it’s no secret that this is indeed the Church’s position. If you think you may want to serve God AND be a husband and a father, then you do not become a Catholic priest. “Yes, but what if you change your mind when you get older?” Then don’t make a vow before God that says you commit your life to remain celibate! We have enough people in this country who profess to be Christian who routinely, without batting an eyelash, break vows before God. We sure as heck don’t need a man of the cloth doing that! “Hey, sorry about breaking that promise to you, God! Them’s the breaks, though, right? Maybe I’ll do better next time…maybe.”
Secondly, why would the Episcopalian church accept a minister who clearly has no regard for vows made before God? Then again, this Church has already demonstrated that it doesn’t always hold God’s word in the highest regard, as evidenced by its ordaining of an openly and practicing homosexual minister.
We all sin. We all stumble. Heck, I do every day, and I ask God’s forgiveness when I do. But when you stumble and sin, you repent…which means you turn from your sin. This “minister” is not turning from his sin of breaking his vow before God…he’s running full speed with zeal into the arms of the sin. May God have mercy on him, as may He have mercy on us all.
Obabykiller appears at Notre Dame, a Catholic school, and says that they need to be more accepting of infanticide. Naturally, the MSM touts his bravery (because wanting babies to die is indicative of raw manly courage, no?). Nope…no liberal media bias!
Not content with being the inspiration for a word that reflects journalistic malfeasance, NYT leftist columnist Maureen Dowd decided to further erode what shreds of credibility she had remaining by plagiarizing a lefty blog. This, of course, qualifies her to be vice-president now.
While Nancy Peliar is going down quicker than Monica Lewinsky in her presidential kneepads over her lies regarding what she knew about torture/waterboarding, she does the predictable: she blames Bush. Alas, Leon Panetta (THAT Leon Panetta?) throws her under the bus on that one, too. So what does the White House have to say on the matter? “Present.”
Dick Cheney says that Obama is a threat to national security. Gore slams Cheney for the comments, saying that he at least waited two years before accusing Bush of “betraying the country” and “playing on our fears.” There’s a problem with the Goreacle’s comments, though: he’s lying through his teeth. “Two years” apparently means “a little less than one year, several times.” His lies were easy to verify via a cursory search on the Internet, which led Adam White to quip: “I’ve turned Al Gore’s own creation against him.” 😆
Bubba recently said that Dick Cheney should avoid criticizing Oprompter, because “I do hope he gets some target practice before he goes out again.” Someone please tell me that a man who had a little “shooting” trouble of his own around a certain blue dress is not critiquing anyone’s aim!
But hey, where would you get the crazy idea that Uhhhh-bama isn’t a devout Christian? Details:
President Obama is distancing himself from the National Day of Prayer by nixing a formal early morning service and not attending a large Catholic prayer breakfast the next morning.
All Mr. Obama will do for the National Day of Prayer, which is Thursday, is sign a proclamation honoring the day, which originated in 1952 when Congress set aside the first Thursday in May for the observance.
For the past eight years, President George W. Bush invited selected Christian and Jewish leaders to the White House East Room, where he typically would give a short speech and several leaders offered prayers.
Obama White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Tuesday that the president is simply reverting back to pre-Bush administration practice.
“Prayer is something the president does every day,” he said. “We’re doing a proclamation, which I know that many administrations in the past have done.”
Pressed by reporters as to the lack of a formal ceremony, Mr. Gibbs said the proclamation was Mr. Obama’s choice.
“That’s the way the president will publicly observe National Prayer Day – privately, he’ll pray as he does every day,” Mr. Gibbs said. …
Luke 9:26 says “For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory, and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.” Good luck with that, Barry.
That noted self-professed pro-abortion, notoriously corrupt, pathological lying “Christian” president of ours has figured out a new way to show his faith (aside from not looking for a church). Details:
Georgetown University says it covered over the monogram “IHS”–symbolizing the name of Jesus Christ—because it was inscribed on a pediment on the stage where President Obama spoke at the university on Tuesday and the White House had asked Georgetown to cover up all signs and symbols there.
As of Wednesday afternoon, the “IHS” monogram that had previously adorned the stage at Georgetown’s Gaston Hall was still covered up–when the pediment where it had appeared was photographed by CNSNews.com. …
Georgetown ought to be ashamed of themselves for compromising their Catholic background to accommodate such a request. Laura Bush spoke at GU three years ago, and she didn’t ask for them to cover up the symbol for “logisitical” purposes. Just sayin’…
Luke 9:26 says “For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory, and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.” Good luck with that, Barry…and Georgetown.
Liberals are growing increasingly nervous – and some just flat-out angry – that President-elect Barack Obama seems to be stiffing them on Cabinet jobs and policy choices.
Obama has reversed pledges to immediately repeal tax cuts for the wealthy and take on Big Oil. He’s hedged his call for a quick drawdown in Iraq. And he’s stocking his White House with anything but stalwarts of the left.
Now some are shedding a reluctance to puncture the liberal euphoria at being rid of President George W. Bush to say, in effect, that the new boss looks like the old boss.
“He has confirmed what our suspicions were by surrounding himself with a centrist to right cabinet. But we do hope that before it’s all over we can get at least one authentic progressive appointment,” said Tim Carpenter, national director of the Progressive Democrats of America.
OpenLeft blogger Chris Bowers went so far as to issue this plaintive plea: “Isn’t there ever a point when we can get an actual Democratic administration?” …
This is what happens when you put your worship and adulation towards a false messiah rather than the real Messiah. When you put your faith in man, you will inevitably be let down. Not so when you put your faith in Christ. Rather than worshiping the gods of electoral outcomes, skin color, party identification, etc., the ‘bats should turn their eyes towards Heaven (no, that is not Washington, D.C.). Here’s what we know about idolatry:
Psalm 16:4: “The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply”
Jeremiah 11:12: “Then the cities of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem will go and cry to the gods to whom they make offerings, but they cannot save them in the time of their trouble.
Jeremiah 1:16: “And I will declare my judgments against them, for all their evil in forsaking me. They have made offerings to other gods and worshiped the works of their own hands.”
And finally, the powerful words from Judges 10:14: “Go and cry out to the gods whom you have chosen; let them save you in the time of your distress.”
Believe it or not, I do have some sympathy for the moonbats. I mean, they racked up big electoral victories in 2006 and 2008. They got themselves the first Democrat president in eight years, and they control both chambers of Congress. Yet they’re still as unhappy as I’ve ever seen them. May they find peace in God instead of in politics. The more I unplug myself from politics (which, as you can tell by the dwindling number of posts lately, is happening right now) and plug into the Word, the happier I am. Give it a try, moonbats…you’ll feel much better! 🙂
Nothing says “we’re just like everyone else” quite like attacking churches, religious people, and normal Americans. From FNC:
In the nearly four weeks since Election Day, gay activists and thousands of their supporters have rallied outside Mormon temples around the country, protesting the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints’ support for California’s Proposition 8, the ballot initiative to make same-sex marriage illegal in the Golden State.
There have been calls to boycott the annual Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah; some activists have called for a boycott of the entire state of Utah. Protesters have defaced some church buildings, and in Arapaho County, Colo., the Sheriff’s Office is investigating a possible hate crime — the torching of the Book of Mormon on a church’s doorstep.
Even the state of California itself has announced that it is investigating the church’s involvement in Proposition 8, which was approved by a vote of 52 percent to 48 percent and, barring a Supreme Court overturn, will ban gay marriage in the state.
There have been no other reports of backlash against other groups that supported Prop 8, notably African-Americans and other churches and religious denominations that turned out in heavy numbers to push through the ban.
Exit polls after the Nov. 4 vote showed that 70 percent of black voters and more than half of Latino voters voted yes on Prop 8. About two-thirds of self-identified Christians supported the ban, and married voters and parents also showed strong support. The Knights of Columbus, the Catholic Church and evangelical groups in the state also urged for a ban on gay marriage.
So why is the Mormon Church the only target?
It’s because of the money, says Evan Wolfe, executive director of Freedom to Marry, a New York-based group that supports same-sex marriage.
“The Mormon Church hierarchy led the way on this attack on gay families and the California constitution,” Wolfe said. “They provided more than half of the funding. They provided the ground troops and were a major political force in a way that no other group was. …”
Let’s cut to the chase and call it like it is: these drama queens are nothing more than lily-livered cowards. I mean, this right here says it all:
Lorri Jean, CEO of the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center, wrote on the organization’s Web site that she doesn’t blame African-Americans or minority groups for the passage of Prop. 8.
Why not “blame them”? Why would you not blame the acutal people who voted on the matter? Why attack a religious organization (Mormons) that has little influence in a gi-normous leftist state like CA? If you really believe that Mormons drive policy decisions in Californiastan, I’ve got some prime beachfront property in Oklahoma I’d like to sell you.
Virtually all groups of people who voted “No” on Prop 8 would fight back (many with force) against the queer lobby’s heavy-handed tactics. Mormons won’t. These sissies know that, so they throw their limp-wristed temper tantrums with impunity. Sad and pathetic. May God have mercy on their depraved souls.
Beyond his unapologetic support for any and all forms of abortion, including infanticide, and beyond his unrepentant lying nature, here is yet another fruit by which we Christians recognize him. Quoth The One:
Obama: There’s the belief, certainly in some quarters (SOME quarters? You mean Christian quarters?- Ed.), that people haven’t embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior that they’re going to hell.
Falsani: You don’t believe that?
Obama: I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. That’s just not part of my religious makeup.
It’s “just not part of my religious makeup”? I guess “God d-amn America” must be part of his “religious makeup”! That whole “God’s Word” thingy must also be above his pay grade.
If ignorance of Jesus were an acceptable defense against damnation, then why would we send missionaries anywhere? Wouldn’t it be better for the lost to remain lost?
Behold Romans 10:13-18:
13 for “(A)WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.”
14 How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him (B)whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without (C)a preacher?
15 How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, “(D)HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO (E)BRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!”
16 However, they (F)did not all heed the good news; for Isaiah says, “(G)LORD, WHO HAS BELIEVED OUR REPORT?”
17 So faith comes from (H)hearing, and hearing by (I)the word of Christ.
18 But I say, surely they have never heard, have they? Indeed they have; “(J)THEIR VOICE HAS GONE OUT INTO ALL THE EARTH, AND THEIR WORDS TO THE ENDS OF THE WORLD.”
Romans chapter 1 explains that God’s laws are written on all men’s hearts in the form of conscience, and thus “they are without excuse” (Romans 1:20). This isn’t good enough for some like the Obamessiah, so they try to “philosophize” God’s grace into what some have called “the wider grace theory”, or the “broad grace” theory. Sorry, but refer to Leviticus 5:17; “Now if a person sins and does any of the things which the LORD has commanded not to be done, though he was unaware, still he is guilty and shall bear his punishment.”
What more is there to be said? Unless one HEARS and BELIEVES the gospel, they shall bear their punishment. That is not my law, but it is God’s law.
God will consign 3/5 or even more of the world to Hell if they ignore His word or otherwise don’t come to Him. We, the creation, do NOT get to question the whims of the Creator, but a man of Obama’s supreme arrogance and ignorance seems to think otherwise. Either he knows God’s word and considers it to be a lie (which will certainly condemn him to Hell) or he is ignorant of it, in which case I just showed where his ignorance will not be a defense.
Glad to see that the incoming “Christian” has his priorities straight. From Politico:
President-elect Barack Obama has yet to attend church services since winning the White House earlier this month, a departure from the example of his two immediate predecessors.
On the three Sundays since his election, Obama has instead used his free time to get in workouts at a Chicago gym.
Both President-elect George W. Bush and President-elect Bill Clinton managed to attend church in the weeks after they were elected.
Dude…even Bubba was in church!
Obama lives not for the Word, but for the flesh…literally. Hey, I work out 5 – 6 days a week, but Sunday morning during services ain’t one of them. Warns Isaiah (13:11): “I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will put an end to the pomp of the arrogant, and lay low the pompous pride of the ruthless.”
Ah, yes…they “only want to be treated like everyone else”, right? Details here. Even the moonbatosphere is starting to think (which is a first for them) that “You know something? This kind of behavior may cause our side to look kinda bad, no?”
Pray for God’s children who are being assaulted by these depraved and lost souls in San Fran-freakshow. Pray for said depraved and lost souls, too.
Good for him. From Breitbart:
A South Carolina Roman Catholic priest has told his parishioners that they should refrain from receiving Holy Communion if they voted for Barack Obama because the Democratic president-elect supports abortion, and supporting him “constitutes material cooperation with intrinsic evil.”
The Rev. Jay Scott Newman said in a letter distributed Sunday to parishioners at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Greenville that they are putting their souls at risk if they take Holy Communion before doing penance for their vote.
“Our nation has chosen for its chief executive the most radical pro-abortion politician ever to serve in the United States Senate or to run for president,” Newman wrote, referring to Obama by his full name, including his middle name of Hussein. (Apparently, referencing a man’s legal birth name is a no-no. Henceforth, please refer to JFK as JK and LBJ as LJ, m’kay? – Ed.)
“Voting for a pro-abortion politician when a plausible pro-life alternative exits constitutes material cooperation with intrinsic evil, and those Catholics who do so place themselves outside of the full communion of Christ’s Church and under the judgment of divine law. Persons in this condition should not receive Holy Communion until and unless they are reconciled to God in the Sacrament of Penance, lest they eat and drink their own condemnation.”
There is nothing in the Bible that tells you that you must vote FOR someone, but there is much guidance in Scripture that you are to vote AGAINST anyone that perverts God’s will. As a matter of fact…:
“It was not an attempt to make a partisan point,” Newman said in a telephone interview Thursday. “In fact, in this election, for the sake of argument, if the Republican candidate had been pro-abortion, and the Democratic candidate had been pro-life, everything that I wrote would have been exactly the same.”
Exactly right. If a pro-life Dem runs against a pro-abortion Republican, then the Christian is to either vote for the Dem or vote for neither one.
Hope you’re sitting down for this one:
“Father Newman is off-base,” said Steve Krueger, national director of Catholic Democrats. “He is acting beyond the authority of a parish priest to say what he did. … Unfortunately, he is doing so in a manner that will be of great cost to those parishioners who did vote for Sens. Obama and Biden. There will be a spiritual cost to them for his words.”
Father Newman’s words impose no spiritual cost whatsoever. Pro-Obama Catholics’ votes and sentiments are what will be of immeasurable spiritual cost! This “Catholic Democrats” group are nothing more than a gaggle of false prophet geese, leading the lost further down the road to perdition.
This parishoner’s words sum the point accurately:
“I don’t understand anyone who would call themselves a Christian, let alone a Catholic, and could vote for someone who’s a pro-abortion candidate,” said Ted Kelly, 64, who volunteers his time as lector for the church. “You’re talking about the murder of innocent beings.”
He’s right, and there is no amount of spinning or denying that changes that truth. People are entitled to their own opinions, but they are not entitled to their own facts!
Bone up on Revelation, my friends, then get your souls right with God. After all, the efforts to launch the One World Government are afoot. But hey, don’t take my word for it.
I would say, “Give consideration to your eternal salvation.” Because to vote for a person who has expressed a fanatical determination to not only support abortion as it exists now but to remove all limitations on it through the Freedom of Choice Act, and to extend it without any recourse, throwing out all of the efforts of citizens over the last 35 years to place reasonable limits on abortion, that voting for a person who has expressed his determination to do this to Planned Parenthood, to NARAL — that you make yourself a participant in the act of abortion. That’s gravely wrong, and you mustn’t do it because your eternal salvation is tied up in that important choice.
Exactly. As G. Craige Lewis notes: “Do we, as Christians, ignore morality and side for money and opportunity?” Although I would argue that under a President Hussein, we would have neither, I would say that if so-called “Christians” were so inclined, may God have mercy on their souls.
