Skip to comments.Obama: “It’s a Time to Celebrate the Birth of Christ … and Learn From His Example”

In a Christmas message to the nation delivered together with First Lady Michelle Obama, President Barack Obama said that for his family Christmas is a time to celebrate the birth of Christ and learn from His example.
You see, the war in Iraq is over. The transition in Afghanistan is underway. After a decade of war, our heroes are coming home. And all across America, military families are reuniting.
For my family and millions of Americans, its a time to celebrate the birth of Christ. To reflect on His life and learn from His example. Every year, we commit to love one another. To give of ourselves. To be our brothers keeper. To be our sisters keeper. But those ideas are not just part of our faith. Theyre part of all faiths. And they unite us as Americans.
We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a netYet the current POTUS proposes to have the populace so unbridled. Not a message worthy of Christmas, I believe?
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
That’s great Barry. Then you wouldn’t mind if Christ came back and tore up the the treasury.
I love how Obama yet again takes a quote from the murderer Cain and turns it into a Christian Doctrine.
>> You see, the war in Iraq is over.
And the war on the Constitution is well underway.
A Prime candidate for the good Lord to demonstrate His grace and the power of exorcism. Meanwhile, please keep praying for America.
hmm ~ thought that dispute was over the first fruits doctrine ~
And yet Obama’s real brother still lives in a hut in Kenya on $24 a year. Aren’t you HIS keeper, Barry?
Barry is The Son of Lies, a prince of Perdition..
You forgot to mention over taxing the people into oblivion.
a time to celebrate the birth of Christ and learn from His example.
Says the guy whose Party took religion out of their platform!! Who advocates the killing of unborn children! What a phony!
He speaks of Jesus as if he were just an ordinary prophet of peace, no more elevated than say, Mahatma Ghandi, MLK, etc. He further debases his “praise” by equating elements of faith in Jesus equal to other religions.
You have a humanization of Jesus, coupled with an equalization of other religions (I’m sure in his mind Allah and Islam) in which he is only making this perfunctory speech because he’s still not yet ready to proclaim he’s a Muslim.
Starkly, Jesus said he was the Son of God. Not a prophet, not just a human who wanted to good, to be equal with Muslims - the Son of God. If he can’t reserve the celebration of his birth on that day without humanizing and diluting the claim he should have just shut the hell up.
Every year, we commit to love one another. To give of ourselves. To be our brothers keeper. To be our sisters keeper. But those ideas are not just part of our faith. Theyre part of all faiths.
When have I ever heard the word LOVE enter the vernacular of the Muslim.
Muslims kill their sisters if that sister had sex, got raped, or just dated a Christian, I guess that’s being their keeper.
They murder their “brothers” ever day if that ‘brother’ happens not to belong to their particular sect of their cult.
Maybe Obama doesnt consider his Muslim faith to be a faith at all, but certainly this statement is BS when it comes to Muslims.
>>He speaks of Jesus as if he were just an ordinary prophet of peace,
According to the koran, Jesus is the greatest of all prophets (until Mohammed). It says that he is nothing more, but that he will return as a destroyer of those who blasphemed allah by declaring him to be Son of God (and that, folks, is us Christians).
This is obviously what Obama believes too.
0bama must have forgotten that the Christ told His followers to arm themselves.
False, Mr. Obama, please provide a book, chapter and verse telling us to be our brother's keeper, before blaspheming His name.
It also isn't our commitment to love one another, but a command to love our brother as Christ loved His fellow man with a brotherly love. God isn't foolish enough to base His love upon our commitment, nor does He demand our commitment, but He does command us to love our fellow man as He loved us.
Merry Christmas and prayers for Obama’s salvation.
“To give of ourselves. To be our brothers keeper. To be our sisters keeper.”
He’ll try to use this to push more “social” programs. I got news for you Barry. Jesus was NOT a socialist!
