I personally couldn’t beleive he actually said that and to a religious crowd. Evidently scripture is also above his pay grade?
His handlers fed him that line as a way to woo the congregants. It is unlikely he ever actually read the passage in context since he failed miserably to recognize the judgment he was heaping upon himself by claiming that passage for his impetus!
What does Obamanation think ministers and priests are paid? Definitely below his pay grade.
What a dorky answer!
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.
