Skip to comments.Obama Outdoes Bush on Jesus
Posted on 06/09/2009 6:18:32 AM PDT by AIM Freeper
President Bush was known for his Christianity but it's President Obama mentioning the Savior of the Christian world in speeches.
From the Politico
Hes done it while talking about abortion and the Middle East, even the economy. The references serve at once as an affirmation of his faith and a rebuke against a rumor that persists for some to this day.
As president, Barack Obama has mentioned Jesus Christ in a number of high-profile public speeches something his predecessor George W. Bush rarely did in such settings, even though Bushs Christian faith was at the core of his political identity.

Because W would be crucified by the media every time he did it.
No, the references serve only as a reminder (as if we needed one) that when Democrat invokes Jesus the MSM hails him/her as "a person of faith" but when a Republican does the same thing he/she is labeled a "Jesus Freak" and someone who is likely to conduct foreign policy by consulting the Book of Revelation.
Obama using Jesus to promote his policies. Wouldn’t that be considered “taking the Lord’s name in vain?”
Men use God. God uses men.
He’s trying to convince us he’s a christian.
A tree that produces fruit doesn’t need to shout about it.
Satan quoted scripture to test Christ....seems consistent to me.
It’s funny Obama can use the name of Jesus, but school children cannot. Graduates cannot ,and Military Chaplains cannot.
Using the name of Jesus is what Obama is doing, exactly what he is doing. He is USING the name of Jesus, it is no proof of his faith.
By the way where did he go to church last Sunday, or the Sunday before that ,or the Sunday before that.Who is administering to his faith and giving him Communion?
Even the demons know that Jesus is the Son Of God but they are not Christian.
“Not everyone who keeps saying to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will get into the kingdom of heaven, but only the person who keeps doing the will of my Father in heaven.” Matt. 7:21
Personally, I am praying that Obama is converted. ;-)
Matthew 15: "8": This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
President Bush's faith is at the core of his identity - period. He didn't politicize the name of Christ.
Perhaps the Boy King can explain why, if he enjoys invoking the Redeemer’s name, he hasn’t been to his House since he became President.
That is one question I cannot answer, but I do know he went to Rev. (?) Wright's God D*** America church for over 20 years. He also said he never heard his sermons demeaning America, so why should I now believe he can use Jesus in a conversation.

Satan uses the Name of the L-rd in order to create deception.
