Another FreeRepublic Op-ed For the political season (#4 in a series)
This op-ed addresses the stunning duplicity in Obamas presentation which is being carefully ignored in the media. When a democrat candidate tries to invoke scripture, to deceive We The People, somebody really should call the liars on it! Obamas lack of familiarity with Bible passages glared at us from the seat next to Pastor Rick Warren, yet the media are meticulously avoiding the laser beam in their eye.
From the Saddleback transcript:
From the Saddleback transcript:
Obama: I THINK AMERICA'S GREATEST MORAL FAILURE IN MYLIFETIME HAS BEEN THAT WE STILL DON'T ABIDE BY THAT BASIC RECEPT IN MATTHEW [caption Mathew chapter 25 31-46] THAT WHATEVER YOU DO FOR THE LEAST OF MY BROTHERS, YOU DO FOR ME.
R. Warren: YOU DO FOR ME, YEAH.
Obama: AND NOTION OF -- THAT BASIC PRINCIPLE APPLIES TO POVERTY. IT APPLIES TO RACISM AND SEXISM. IT APPLIES TO, YOU KNOW, NOT HAVING -- NOT THINKING ABOUT PROVIDING LADDERS OF OPPORTUNITY FOR PEOPLE TO GET INTO THE MIDDLE CLASS. I MEAN, THERE IS A PURVASIVE SENSE I THINK THAT THIS COUNTRY IS WEALTHY AND POWERFUL AS WE STILL DON'T SPEND ENOUGH TIME THINKING ABOUT THE LEAST OF THESE --
R. Warren: ABOUT THE COMMON GOOD, THE COMMON GROUND AND COMMON GOOD.
Heres what that passage from Matthew's Gospel actually says, and please note the verse 40 admonition of doing to the least is doing to Jesus if the children surviving an attempted abortion are not the least of Jesus brethren, then there isnt a cow in Illinois and Barack Obama is a great Bible teacher for the democrats!
Matthew 25:31-40 [KJV]
When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
Folks, Barack Hussein Obama worked hard to prevent a bill from passing that would have protected babies who are born alive following an attempt to kill them in their mothers womb!
When Obama stood to oppose the born alive infants protection bill, he argued that to extend protection to the survivors of abortion attempts would convey personhood upon these alive, born children, and thus invoke the Constitutional protection of the fourteenth amendment. And according to Barack Hussein Obama protecting these babies via the Constitution would be anti-abortion in nature so he would not support the bill! In other words, Barack Obama does not want to defend the least among us and wants to define these least as not persons because the Constitution would protect them and Barry doesnt want them protected and in fact wants the murder of these little ones to continue as legal slaughter of the least among us.
And Jesus instructed: Verily I say to you, Inasmuch as ye did to one of these my brethren -- the least -- to me ye did.
I seem to recall something Jesus said about millstones around the necks of those who harm one of these little ones, the least of Jesus brethren.
Now what is Barrys collar size again? Is it too early to fit him for his millstone?
Did you catch that he wants the U.S. to fund "health programs" around the world to prevent orphans from being born (i.e., UN/World Health Organization abortion services). He's the Soros/UNICEF candidate for president. They want him heading the UN after finishing as president. He seems only to half understand the globaloney agenda, reading from cue cards in clumsy answers. It's like a kid in a fifth-grade Social Studies class repeating globalist propaganda from a UN or National Geographic documentary. How can the U.S. fund global "health programs" when many American citizens aren't even insured? It doesn't make any sense. Uninsured Americans are already paying taxes which go to FOREIGN AID???!!! And Obama wants more crackpot global socialism. The Dems just can't kill unborn children fast enough. They want more.
I hope not. Christianity and Jesus's ministry completely aside, first-century Jews did not countenance abortion.
Obama cant spiain his way out of this one...
His misuse of that scripture has already bit him in the butt...
Every Bible reading Christian got the glaring hypocracy ...
If the “least” of us are not the tiny unborn babies that he is guilty of slaughtering, then who are they ????
Poverty ??? Racism ??? Sexism ???
Yes, abortion is all those...
Racism - a black genocide
Sexism - Often girl babies are murdered in the womb
Poverty - a lack of compassion and mercy for the least of us, the unborn babies..
Obama has innocent blood on his hands as if he had held the abortionist’s knife and done the actual murder...
He can say “out damn spot” and misquote Bible verses, but he cannot excuse his condoning the deaths of even babies who have been born...
What is evil, Obama ????
Look in the mirror...Your abortion pushing ways are, Obama...
Only the precious blood of Jesus can defeat evil...
Jesus does not agree with what you are doing to millions of unborn and newly born babies...
But His blood was shed to cleanse you from your sin...
Turn from your evil ways, Obama...
Ask Jesus to forgive you and make you whole...
Who are the least of these, “my brothers” ???
The unborn in the womb.....
Hard to dispute that it is a distinct possibility.
Corsi has done some of that in his book. You would expect National Review, The American Conservative, or a journal like First Things to examine and expose his bizarre ideas and the theology and leftist ideology behind it. Citing Matthew and excluding the unborn from the Lord's injunction is pretty weak theology. He has exposed himself with these gaffes in the civil forum. It's out there. Someone needs to create a site focused just on his gaffes and errors. From the "bitter" comment about people "clinging to guns and religion" to these latest gaffes on abortion and scripture.
It it's "above his pay grade" to know the answer about when children deserve constitutional protection, maybe he's not up to the job.
Obama is trying to put the best face he can to the Evangelicals, and the “social gospel” is the only thing he can offer them. Unfortunately, his past rhetoric on abortion and, what can only be termed infanticide, tells us that the face he is hiding from them is radical in the extreme. To think Republicans want to starve children, or deny minorities access to the middle class is typical of his liberal, racist-baiting campaign. To think Democrats support infanticide doesn’t seem so improbable, given their hard-line position on abortion. It has to be defended at all costs, even up to killing those babies who happen to survive the attempt to kill them.
It has to be defended at all costs, even up to killing those babies who happen to survive the attempt to kill them.
Actually that has to be unConstitutional...
if a criminal is sentenced to death and the attempt to put him to death fails, they stop trying...and his death sentence is commuted..
After a certain number of attempts it becomes torturous psychologically, and cruel and unusual punishment and violates his rights...
If the unborn have personhood, they would at least fall into this catagory...
I THINK AMERICA'S GREATEST MORAL FAILURE IN MYLIFETIME HAS BEEN THAT WE STILL DON'T ABIDE BY THAT BASIC RECEPT IN MATTHEW [caption Mathew chapter 25 31-46] THAT WHATEVER YOU DO FOR THE LEAST OF MY BROTHERS, YOU DO FOR ME.
IMHO Democrats should stop their 'What Would Jesus Do', 'Jesus Would Be A Democrat' and quoting Bible passages, or attempting to, all in order to push their socialist ideas. It's offensive and sacrilegious (grossly irreverent toward what is held to be sacred) - they are mocking God and Jesus with their selective picking and choosing.
But since Barry is so knowledgeable of 'Matthew' I'm sure he knows this part too....
Matthew 25, The Parable of the Ten VirginsJesus would not be a democrat.
At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. 3The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. At midnight the cry rang out: 'Here's the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!'
Lastly, Barry should remember this from Matthew 22: Tribute to Caesar
- Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps.
- The foolish ones said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.'
- 'No,' they replied, 'there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.'
- But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.
- Later the others also came. 'Sir! Sir!' they said. 'Open the door for us!' But he replied, 'I tell you the truth, I don't know you.'
- Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour (wherein the Son of man cometh).Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk. And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men. Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them,Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.
Smack! Great work, MHGinTN!
Obama was making exactly that point. In order to defend abortion rights, he believed that it is necessary to deny these "accidental births" rights. What seems to count in this twisted view is not the "personhood" of the infant, but the intentions of those trying to perform the abortion. They intended to kill it, therefore, it is not a person...
They are slick arent they ????????
And unborn babies don’t count in “the least of these?”
Well worth repeating!
The DemoncRATs either A) don't know know scripture, B) don't care, or C) will vote DemoncRATic though they know AND care.
Obomba has his base and knows it. He's now trying for the swing vote.
Well, it seems we do have two candidates for president—an American and a Kenyan!
These are the very words that apply to the little ones that he has tried to deny human rights:
“naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick... and came unto thee?”
You would think a man who claims enough education to teach Constitutional Law would be able to connect 'fatherhood' and conception, and come up with a truthful answer of when there is a CHILD to be considered in issues of paternity. I mean, a woman can sue over paternity long before birthing a baby because the FATHERHOOD of the sperm donor can be proven by checking the genetic identity of the yet to be born CHILD, so there has to be a point of personhood --MORALLY--long before the birthing day.
If the alive unborn are not the least of our brethren and the least of Jesus' brethren, then Barack Hussein Obama ought to pick a different Bible verse to hang his demonically inspired Marxism upon. But God have mercy on that dolt if he fails to realize Jesus said doing to the least is doing unto Him.
