Skip to comments.obama: 'We are God's partners in matters of life and death'
Posted on 08/20/2009 9:45:01 AM PDT by RED SOUTH
"We are God's partners in matters of life and death," Obama said, quoting from the Rosh Hashanah prayer that says that in the holiday period, it is decided "who shall live and who shall die." The president ended the call by wishing the rabbis "shanah tovah," or happy new year in reference to the High Holidays a month from now. A reader points out that President Obama's call with the rabbis today as recorded in Rabbi Jack Moline's and other clerics' Twitter feeds freights health care reform with a great deal of religious meaning, and veers into the blend of policy and faith that outraged liberals in the last administration.
I suppose the Deity let him in on that personally.
More jive from out conman president Hussein
He quotes God only when it’s politically expedient
I think he’s gone way over his pay grade if he thinks he partners with God on life and death! “Pride goeth before the fall”...maybe he should be reading the Bible with a sincere heart instead of with a heart of stone...
Excerpt based on the book "Malignant Self Love - Narcissism Revisited" - Sam Vaknin :
God is everything the narcissist ever wants to be: omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, admired, much discussed, and awe inspiring. God is the narcissist's wet dream, his ultimate grandiose fantasy. But God comes handy in other ways as well.
The narcissist alternately idealizes and devalues figures of authority.
In the idealization phase, he strives to emulate them, he admires them, imitate them (often ludicrously), and defends them. They cannot go wrong, or be wrong. The narcissist regards them as bigger than life, infallible, perfect, whole, and brilliant. But as the narcissist's unrealistic and inflated expectations are inevitably frustrated, he begins to devalue his former idols.
Now they are "human" (to the narcissist, a derogatory term). They are small, fragile, error-prone, pusillanimous, mean, dumb, and mediocre. The narcissist goes through the same cycle in his relationship with God, the quintessential authority figure.
But often, even when disillusionment and iconoclastic despair have set in -- the narcissist continues to pretend to love God and follow Him. The narcissist maintains this deception because his continued proximity to God confers on him authority. Priests, leaders of the congregation, preachers, evangelists, cultists, politicians, intellectuals -- all derive authority from their allegedly privileged relationship with God.
Religious authority allows the narcissist to indulge his sadistic urges and to exercise his misogynism freely and openly. Such a narcissist is likely to taunt and torment his followers, hector and chastise them, humiliate and berate them, abuse them spiritually, or even sexually. The narcissist whose source of authority is religious is looking for obedient and unquestioning slaves upon whom to exercise his capricious and wicked mastery. The narcissist transforms even the most innocuous and pure religious sentiments into a cultish ritual and a virulent hierarchy. He prays on the gullible. His flock become his hostages.
Religious authority also secures the narcissist's narcissistic supply. His coreligionists, members of his congregation, his parish, his constituency, his audience -- are transformed into loyal and stable sources of narcissistic supply. They obey his commands, heed his admonitions, follow his creed, admire his personality, applaud his personal traits, satisfy his needs (sometimes even his carnal desires), revere and idolize him.
Moreover, being a part of a "bigger thing" is very gratifying narcissistically. Being a particle of God, being immersed in His grandeur, experiencing His power and blessings first hand, communing with him -- are all sources of unending narcissistic supply. The narcissist becomes God by observing His commandments, following His instructions, loving Him, obeying Him, succumbing to Him, merging with Him, communicating with Him -- or even by defying him (the bigger the narcissist's enemy -- the more grandiosely important the narcissist feels).
Like everything else in the narcissist's life, he mutates God into a kind of Inverted Narcissist. God becomes his dominant source of supply. He forms a personal relationship with this overwhelming and overpowering entity -- in order to overwhelm and overpower others. He becomes God vicariously, by the proxy of his relationship with Him. He idealizes God, then devalues Him, then abuses him. This is the classic narcissistic pattern and even God himself cannot escape it.
Crimmeny, its like Mccains we are all gods children
Very strange thing to say, and arrogant. Especially because he is referring to healthcare, abortions and letting the elderly die. Kevorkian will be proud of him!
I thought this was above his pay grade.
Oh no he didn’t!!!!
Although I choke down vomit when I try this, I do attempt to pray for Barry’s soul. I know that God can do all things and any- thing. Still, that God would shame my doubting faith and turn this man from his arrogance and sin.....
Not that I don’t deserve a good smiting of my own, but for using this phrase and attempting to turn good for evil, may God smite the hell of this foolish jerk, and Forgive me if I enjoy it too much.
If the Democrats want to keep insisting they didn’t have “Death Panels” in mind they’ve gotta’ shut up Goober Fur Shur.
“We are God’s partners in matters of life and death,”
no that’s not a quote from a prayer. that’s just obama.
And which "god" would that be, Mr. Obama? Mighty presumptuous of you, on the one hand, and mighty evocative of some frightening past regimes, on the other.
How stupid could we be? As Catholics do not expect to meet or lobby against abortion in a CHURCH. The laity has plenty of other places to meet to overthrow this idiot and his sin ridden plans.
We do meet and we will get rid of him in our secular settings.
USCBC and other clergy are annoying me with their weak positions on fighting Satan’s abortions.
Stay out of politics.
That’s exactly what God meant by the “Do not use My Name in vain” commandment.
