Skip to comments.Obama live speech:"Jesus would raise taxes on 'the rich'"
Posted on 02/02/2012 6:45:51 AM PST by sickoflibs
Obama just said in a live speech (9:18 AM EST) at a Prayer Breakfast that he wants to raise taxes on the rich because his Christian values tell him to personally give more to those less fortunate by raising his own taxes, just as Jesus would do. Not kidding.... now he just called federal welfare 'charity'... and just accused those of opposing tax increases as 'not having Jesus love of others in their hearts'
Did Jesus really ask the Romans to raise taxes on the Jews and Samaritans to pay for the fish, bread and wine for the early Christians for economic fairness?? I read the Bible a few times but missed that part, "The Book of Krugman" ?
Obama is a total idiot. Thre is NOTHING stopping the rich from giving to the government....except they know it’s the worst “investment” they could make. Better to invest in the people...either by making jobs, charitable contributions or buying goods.
Laugh of the day ping, sort of...
does this make Obama “Ceasar”?
this was asked and answered 2000 or so years ago...LITERALLY!

Jesus made his own fish, bread and wine....IIRC.
Warrent buffet “gets that”. That is why he set up his own charity.
I keep most of the program on low volume.
I only turned it up to hear Jackie Evancho sing..
And I wasn’t disappointed...
keep = kept
You mean they’re ‘heartless’ AAA-hole?
Jesus wouldn’t have elected you for dog catcher.
Obama is a blasphemer. But then I repeat myself. Hussein is a Muslim!
Obama must have taken that “messiah” thing seriously.
Next thing we will hear is that Jesus was an “occupier”.
ROTFL! Obama, re-writing the Bible.
Obama's Church: Gospel of Hate

In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obamas pastor in a heated interview about his Churchs teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...
Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.
Catholics for Marx [Liberation Theology]
By Fr. Robert Sirico
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, June 03, 2004
In the days when the Superpowers were locked in a Cold War, Latin America seethed with revolution, and millions lived behind an iron curtain, a group of theologians concocted a novel idea within the history of Christianity. They proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus with the teachings of Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow the economics of capitalism.
The Gospels were re-rendered not as doctrine impacting on the human soul but rather as windows into the historical dialectic of class struggle. These "liberation theologians" saw every biblical criticism of the rich as a mandate to expropriate the expropriating owners of capital, and every expression of compassion for the poor as a call for an uprising by the proletarian class of peasants and workers.
Are you sure he didn't get the money from the Roman tax collectors like Obama says? Are you calling Obama a liar? :)
Yet when God (Jesus) imposed a census tax on the Jews in the desert he specifically said it would be the exact same for the rich and the poor - one half sheckle. Futher the rate of the tithe was the same for the rich and the poor: 10%. Finally, when discussing the duties of judges he maintained that the poor should not be favored over the rich because of their poverty nor should the rich be favored because of their wealth. Obama just proves he’s never read the bible every time he addresses the subject.
Render unto Solyndra that which is Solyndra’s.
Render unto Government Motors that which is Government Motors’.
Jesus was a flat taxer. Everybody pays ten percent.
"Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that's where it's really at"

"Dig It. First they killed those pigs [ie, rich people], then they ate dinner in the same room with them, they even shoved a fork into a victims stomach! Wild!"

"It was at the Chicago home of [Bill] Ayers and [Bernardine] Dohrn that Obama, then an up-and-coming 'community organizer,' had his political coming out party in 1995. Not content with this rite of passage in Lefty World where unrepentant terrorists are regarded as progressive luminaries, still working 'only to educate' both Obamas tended to the relationship with the Ayers."

Jesus would have been a flat-taxer. God’s OT laws taxed the Israelites 10% for the care of the widows and orphans. Doesn’t mention unwed mothers or slackers. LOL
I’m sure that the Jesus 0bama follows would not only raise taxes on the rich, but would see a baby as punishment, and allow guns to freely get into the hands of Mexican drug lords. Of course 0bama does not follow the Jesus of the Bible, 0bama follows a different Jesus, a Jesus made up out of whole cloth, the Jesus 0bama follows is from the spirit of the Anti-Christ.
The man is a broken record, a blaspheming broken record.
(some key excerpts)
["(Jose) Diaz-Balart is the son of Rafael Diaz-Balart y Guitierrez (a former Cuban politician). He has three bothers, Rafael Diaz-Balart (a banker), Mario Diaz-Balart (a US Congressman) and Lincoln Diaz-Balart (also a US Congressman). His aunt, Mirta Diaz-Balart, was Fidel Castro's first wife."
JOSE DIAZ-BALART, TELEMUNDO NETWORK: "Liberation theology in Nicaragua in the mid-1980's was a pro-Sandinista, pro-Marxist, anti-U.S., anti-Catholic Church movement. That's it. No ifs, ands, or buts. His church apparently supported, in the mid-'80s in Nicaragua, groups that supported the Sandinista dictatorships and that were opposed to the Contras whose reason for being was calling for elections. That's all I know. I was there.
I saw the churches in Nicaragua that he spoke of, and the churches were churches that talked about the need for violent revolution and I remember clearly one of the major churches in Managua where the Jesus Christ on the altar was not Jesus Christ, he was a Sandinista soldier, and the priests talked about the corruption of the West, talked about the need for revolution everywhere, and talked about 'the evil empire' which was the United States of America."
REV. BOB SCHENCK, NATIONAL CLERGY COUNCIL: "it's based in Marxism. At the core of his [Wright's] theology is really an anti-Christian understanding of God, and as part of a long history of individuals who actually advocate using violence in overthrowing those they perceive to be oppressing them, even acts of murder have been defended by followers of liberation theology. That's very, very dangerous."
SCHENCK: "I was actually the only person escorted to Dr. Wright. He asked to see me, and I simply welcomed him to Washington, and then I said Dr. Wright, I want to bring you a warning: your embrace of Marxist liberation theology. It is contrary to the Gospel, and you need, sir, to abandon it. And at that he dropped the handshake and made it clear that he was not in the mood to dialogue on that point."

Meanwhile, on his big butt wife’s birthday recently, the two of these hypocrites were eating $81 steaks in a D.C. restaurant that sells $28 “Obama” hamburgers.
Give your OWN money to “charity,” Hussein.
I don’t remember anythng from the gospels about Jesus advising Caesar on government policy.
I do remember the disciple most obsessed with Social Justice selling him out for 30 pieces of silver.
0bummer’s addiction to lying & continued mockery of Christ and all symbols thereof are sickening. “Leader of the Free World” descent into the corrupt tyrannical debt-enslaved FORMERLY free... What a grifter.
I have to give Hannity credit for this much, at least he was one of the all too few voices in the media trying to warn people about Comrade Zero’s background.
I swear if I was sitting in some of his speeches, I think I would laugh out loud at the absurdity of it all.
I don’t think I know I would
Biblical Jesus: Give your money to the poor.
Obama’s Jesus: Give your neighbors’ money to the poor.
"Render unto Cesar what is Cesar's", Jesus asked the rich to help the poor directly but never by the way of Cesar. The Obozo doesn't know Scripture because he's a Muslim. HISTORY indicates that Mohammad on the other hand would just kill the rich and take their wealth and divvy out the spoils to the rest of his murdering thugs. He used that activity exclusively and successfully to gain followers.
Substitute “Jews” for “Rich” and you can decode the real meaning here. Then by bringing up Jesus you can bring in all the old Jews killed Jesus stuff that has been so popular over the milennnia. This is been the message of “Occupy” (sent down from 0bama) and it’s the message here. It’s basically Hitler/Muslim Brotherhood/Liberation Theology. This is toxic stuff and very deliberate IMHO.
Jesus, in Matthew 20:15 “ Is it not lawful for me to do what I want with my own?”
(20) And He said, That which comes out of the man is what defiles the man.
(21) For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
(22) thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
(23) All these evil things pass out from inside and defile the man.
Here, Jesus says that coveting and theft is EVIL.
(15) And He said to them, Watch and keep yourselves from covetousness. For a man’s life is not in the abundance of the things which he possesses.
(17) And He said to him, Why do you call Me good? There is none good but one, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.
(18) He said to Him, Which? Jesus said, You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not bear false witness,
(19) honor your father and mother, and, you shall love your neighbor as yourself.
Socialism is the ideology that we must all live at the expense of everyone else. In order to do this, the wealth of all is presumed to belong to government so it may distribute as it sees fit. This is institutionalized coveting and theft. It easily violates the Ten Commandments in so many ways. The sad thing is so many Christians think this is “social justice.” But “social justice” is an attempt to bring about a godless Utopia.
Socialism also institutionalizes lies. The first one being that we will be better off through socialism than through the free market.
Previous attempts at bringing Utopia in the 20th century cost over 100 million lives.
(7) Do not be deceived, God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows, that he also will reap.
more like the Book of Keynesians...with a reach back to O.T. days and speaking from the I AM POV...
Show me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it ? They answered and said, Ceasar's.
 And He said to them, Render, therefore, unto Ceasar the things which are Ceasar's, and unto God the things which are God's.
 And they could not take hold of His words before the people; and they marveled at His answer, and held their peace.
sadly, many 'christians' will believe this line and never know that theyve been duped by the muzzcomm...
the rightful 'authority' in the human gov here is the people, not the pharisees...and they will be unable to see the Truth, or act on it, until its too late...
Yep, if you really think about what he is saying it is stupid. However liberals really repeat this stuff and seem to believe it, although you can never tell for sure what people really believe in politics.
Obama hired Reverend Jim Wallace to pitch this progressive Jesus stuff.
Jesse Jackson has a weekly show on ‘The Word’ network and he has recently been preaching that progressive Jesus was for government forced economic justice (loved the poor, hated the rich) and Santa represents Christmas greed. Better yet he recently said that that Republicans opposing tax increases are the ‘money changers’ that Jesus threw out of the Jewish Temple. I am not kidding!
“Those who will not work shall not eat.” —St. Paul
not only that, but He also used those fishes as His own printing press...

Perhaps the Muslim-in-Chief should keep his conversations to something, or someBODY he actually knows. I pray he comes to know Jesus Christ as God, and as his savior and Lord.
Someone should ask Obama what Jesus would say about abortion.
that comparison would more easily be represented by the avg politician and wall street bigwigs...
The Lord didnt kick em out for using the current system to make a buck, rather He kicked em out [and remember Jesus was a 1st century carpenter, so prolly strong as an ox hands/upper body] for defiling the temple...simple blasphemy at its root...
the folks doing the 'buying' of said animals, were sposed to be bringing their own sacrifices, not just generic coins...
PS...thanks for a ‘fun’ thread thats gets everybody thinkin in terms of Gods will for a change...8^}
There’s no depth too low that this assh*le won’t stoop down to.
Worst President in US History. Makes Jimmy Carter look like a genius. And that’s not saying much.
Other than the Marxist liberation theology view of Christianity Obama got from 20 years of listening to Rev. Wright’s racist vitriol, Obama probably is equally familiar with Islams anti-capitalist views.
let me play Devil's (Obama’s) Advocate just to make it fun for you :)
Obama would say :
“ Jesus would be a champion of a woman's ‘right to choose’ to have an abortion because he believed in personal freedom opposing slavery, OH, except with Charity where he said compassion and love was voting for the rich to be forced to pay higher taxes, and he also would want those forced taxes to go pay for a woman's 'right to choose' to kill her (pre)unborn baby if that is what she wants for freedom. ”
How did I do ? I got this liberal-logic down :) I see a video coming on.
You heard Obama’s old car has failed to sell, and I know why.
He didn’t do what Jesus would do.
I applied that principle over here. LOL
Sort of boosts my theory that if The REV. Jackson came within ten feet of a Bible he’d burst into flames.

I have to give you credit! You DO have this "liberal-logic" down!
It is not much consolation, but i am seeing a lot of negatives on him and the petite beautiful Michelle, I mean that classy wife of Barack’s who does push ups on national television.
I mean how classy can you get. At any rate, people are mad about her vacations.
But gee whiz, you know it is a lot of work running around telling people what to eat. Besides, she is probably being watched too closely here and the poor woman might get a chance to eat what she likes when she is out of U.S.
