CBNNews ^ | 2/4/09

Posted on 02/04/2009 7:27:24 AM PST by pabianice

CBNNews.com - CBN News has learned that President Obama will create a President's Council on Faith.

The council will be announced at Thursday's National Prayer Breakfast in Washington tomorrow.

The President has not been shy talking about his faith.

This new council will be made up of religious leaders across the ideaological spectrum.

Their main task will be to provide public policy input on faith related issues ranging from healthcare to poverty. They will meet regularly and discuss their ideas with the President.

The council will be part of an overall faith-based office.

The President is also expected to lay out his vision for that office at the prayer breakfast.

Which “faith-based” leader will speak for the unborn and newly born babies that this monster wants to be killed if the mother says so . . . which religion is that? What a creep! Any religious leader who breaks bread with him should be ashamed.

Doesn’t this violate the DemocRATS’ “separation of church and state” gig?

Snicker, snicker, guffaw, ROFLOL. "Muslim call to pray is most beautiful sound on earth"? 20 years in a lunatic fringe BLT church spewing hatred? "Bitter clingers".

Might there be a reason why he is "shy"?

After listening to his preacher I can deduce that this "council" will:

Find Jews, Whites and Conservatives guilty for all the Worlds problems.

Reparations will be needed to "heal" the wrongs that Jews, Whites and Conservatives have done to non Jews, non Whites and non Conservatives.

“Obama has not been shy about his faith,” but he has been disingenuous. Obama’s form of Christianity does include a belief in life after death, nor does it believe in the divinity of Christ. So, while Obama’s faith may hold elements of both Christianity and Islam, it is separate from both, and is the reason that Obama believes that he can claim an understanding of both. Oh, I forgot to mention that Obama’s faith is based on Socialism. I capitalized it, because for Obama, it is a religion.

Will he come before the Lord and humble himself, turn from evil and repent of his wicked ways? Otherwise, he might as well be talking to the wall.

I am not afraid of Obama assaulting faith groups, I am afraid of him drugging and seducing them.

[For impaired readers --- not you, FWF---: that was a metaphor.]

It will be interesting to see if Americans United (AU)challenges this aggressively.

Yeh, which faith would he talk about? “God-damn America”? perhaps? Maybe ‘White Folks are from Satan?’ Would it be butts-up and bow towards Mecca? Just checking ...

What NOW about ‘separation of church and state’, Mr. little o?

Will the Council decide what we can believe and what is WRONG?

Obama is not a Christian.

He has never been baptized and strolling down the aisle at Rev. Wright's racist/Marxist “church” and pledging allegiance to the “Black Value System” does not make one a Christian.

This group will consist of a broad selection of religious leaders who will all demand the moral necessity for increased welfare funding on every front; but will think that protecting the unborn is a murky personal issue which is “above their pay grade”. Worthless charlatans the lot of them.

When did healtcare and poverty become faith-related issues? And to the degree they are "faith-related", shouldn't the government ignore the faith-related aspects of them? Certainly establishing poverty programs because religion says we should take care of the poor is precisely the "establishment of religion" we are supposed to oppose.

That was my point, Obama calls himself a Christian because he uses some elements of Christianity, especially the historical elements and the teachings of Paul, but the elements are all twisted to fit a single agenda, Socialism. Socialism is Obama’s religion.

The origins and beliefs of that Gamaliel Foundation, that we were talking about last week, provide an open window into the beliefs of Barack Obama. I think that these are the beliefs that he plans to introduce to the prayer breakfast.

A precursor to something akin to the Chinese Three Self Patriotic Movement (China’s official religion)?

“The TSPM is not a denomination, and denominational distinctions do not exist within the organization. Pastors are trained at one of only thirteen officially sanctioned seminaries[6] which are Marxist-oriented and teach liberal theology[7].”

Exactly. the O-boy wants to establish a ‘state’ religion, and it won’t look like Christianity. What does he mean by ‘faith’? That could be muslim, hindu, black liberation theology, but not Christian, except perhaps some perverted form of it.

Hussein “hasn’t been shy about his faith?” Are you kidding? He threw his “minister” under a double decker bus, denied ever going to his church or hearing any on his sermons, claimed he had never, ever been a Muslim....hasn’t been shy about his faith??? The only things Hussein hasn’t been shy about are giving the finger to various opponents, lying like a dollar watch and holding the American people in abject contempt.

Hmmmm. I suspect he views this as a way for him to use the government to increase the prestige of the religious left. If he plans to do that, then I would find a First Amendment objection to this. The government should not be in the business of establishing a religion.
