Perry says he was right to accuse Obama of "War on Religion"
reuters ^ | 2/11/2012 | Jim Forsyth

Posted on 02/11/2012 9:08:49 AM PST by tobyhill

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry said on Thursday that the dispute between President Barack Obama and the Catholic church over contraception shows he was right to accuse Obama of a "War on Religion."

Perry, who quit the presidential campaign last month after a faltering performance, said that he was blasted last September for criticizing Obama as hostile to religion.

Perry ran ads before the Iowa caucuses stressing his Christian religion and saying that he would restore respect for religion if he were elected.

"But last night if you turned on a television or heard talk radio or read a newspaper this morning, that's all people are talking about, is the President's war on religion," Perry said in a telephone interview with San Antonio radio station WOAI after he spoke to a convention of conservatives in Washington.

A war on traditional Christianity. He continues to pander to the Moslems.

Maybe the fickle conservatives can come around and realize what a mistake they made listening to Mitt and the LSM’s attack on Perry. I hope the anti-Perry punks and skanks on FR realize what they helped accomplish.

Obama's "religion" is communist Black Liberation Theology.

The Real Story Behind Rev. Wright's Controversial Black Liberation Theology Doctrine
Monday , May 5, 2008
FoxNews/Hannity's America
[special Friday night edition--original airdate May 2, 2008]

(some key excerpts)

["(Jose) Diaz-Balart is the son of Rafael Diaz-Balart y Guitierrez (a former Cuban politician). He has three bothers, Rafael Diaz-Balart (a banker), Mario Diaz-Balart (a US Congressman) and Lincoln Diaz-Balart (also a US Congressman). His aunt, Mirta Diaz-Balart, was Fidel Castro's first wife."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jose_Diaz-Balart]

JOSE DIAZ-BALART, TELEMUNDO NETWORK: "Liberation theology in Nicaragua in the mid-1980's was a pro-Sandinista, pro-Marxist, anti-U.S., anti-Catholic Church movement. That's it. No ifs, ands, or buts. His church apparently supported, in the mid-'80s in Nicaragua, groups that supported the Sandinista dictatorships and that were opposed to the Contras whose reason for being was calling for elections. That's all I know. I was there.

I saw the churches in Nicaragua that he spoke of, and the churches were churches that talked about the need for violent revolution and I remember clearly one of the major churches in Managua where the Jesus Christ on the altar was not Jesus Christ, he was a Sandinista soldier, and the priests talked about the corruption of the West, talked about the need for revolution everywhere, and talked about 'the evil empire' which was the United States of America."

REV. BOB SCHENCK, NATIONAL CLERGY COUNCIL: "it's based in Marxism. At the core of his [Wright's] theology is really an anti-Christian understanding of God, and as part of a long history of individuals who actually advocate using violence in overthrowing those they perceive to be oppressing them, even acts of murder have been defended by followers of liberation theology. That's very, very dangerous."

SCHENCK: "I was actually the only person escorted to Dr. Wright. He asked to see me, and I simply welcomed him to Washington, and then I said Dr. Wright, I want to bring you a warning: your embrace of Marxist liberation theology. It is contrary to the Gospel, and you need, sir, to abandon it. And at that he dropped the handshake and made it clear that he was not in the mood to dialogue on that point."

Obama's Church: Gospel of Hate
Kathy Shaidle, FrontPageMag.com
Monday, April 07, 2008

In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obama’s pastor in a heated interview about his Church’s teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...

Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.

Catholics for Marx [Liberation Theology]
By Fr. Robert Sirico
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, June 03, 2004

In the days when the Superpowers were locked in a Cold War, Latin America seethed with revolution, and millions lived behind an iron curtain, a group of theologians concocted a novel idea within the history of Christianity. They proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus with the teachings of Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow the economics of capitalism.

The Gospels were re-rendered not as doctrine impacting on the human soul but rather as windows into the historical dialectic of class struggle. These "liberation theologians" saw every biblical criticism of the rich as a mandate to expropriate the expropriating owners of capital, and every expression of compassion for the poor as a call for an uprising by the proletarian class of peasants and workers.

"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal".--James (Jim) Cone,

by Cornel West (Editor), Eddie S. Glaude Jr. (Editor)

SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"

WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.

HANNITY: But I'm a — reverend

WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?

...”He continues to pander to the Moslems.”

_______________________________________________________

You need to do some homework or stop spreading that lie.

This has been debunked repeatedly. Oh, and despite rumors to the contrary, Rick Perry’s daughter Sidney Perry is not married to a “high-ranking Iman” — in fact she isn’t married at all. Such rubbish.

David Stein: This is controversial?

1. Countries of Western Civilization have secular governments, which means great toleration of cultural and religious differences.

2. Countries of Islamic Civilization for the most part either have religiously dominated governments or demands to make them more religious, which mean less toleration of cultural and religious differences.

3. Muslims often lack respect for Western traditions and points of view. The Muslim relationship to the West is colored by the belief that Western beliefs [whether Christian or atheist] are defective and therefore inferior to Islam

http://www.countercontempt.com/archives/1945

Amil Imani: “No matter how I tried, I couldn’t reach the conclusion that this inclusion promotes Islam or is pro-Sharia. It seems that the mere fact that Islam is included in the curriculum represents supporting it. And with regard to the concern that the education curriculum Perry promoted is pro-Arab and against Israel, the evidence is exactly the opposite. …”

http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/09/governor_perrys_islam_connection.html

Alana Goodman: “Could we be heading to a point where Perry is accused of being both an Islamofascist sympathizer and an anti-Muslim bigot? And if so, can we just split the difference and call it a day?”

I supported Perry early in his campaign...he did not bring it off. He not only wasn’t presidential...he seemed dumb.

Sorry...but that’s the way it came aross. With the liberal media pointing out every gaff...and enlarging their importance...he faded in the polls quickly.

This points up that a conservative must run a near perfect campaign...or the elites will crush him. He didn’t, and they did.

Obama’s “religion” is communist Black Liberation Theology.


I would argue that Obama’s primary religion is liberal statism (to borrow from Mark Levin). Black Liberation Theology is a marxist theology based on racism. Liberals celebrate that theology based on skin color and opposition to normal America. We see the same thing with the far left and Islam. The “non-PC” elements of Islam are accepted and protected as a minority counter-culture influence. It helps that Islam hates Christianity too.

Obama’s entire life has been full of influences opposed to the idea of Judeo-Christian values. His mother was a counter-culture radical. His grandparents and mentor (Frank Marshal Davis) were counter-culture communist progressives. His educational influences were Ivy League leftists. His church was radical Black Liberation Theology. His community agitator days were classic hardcore race based liberalism mixed with government solutions. His associates and neighbors were a mix of the same brands. His closest advisors are a mix of the same. He and his wife also suffer from the hollywood/wine country liberalism where they are “down with the revolution” but expect and enjoy the fruits of great wealth as champions of the downtrodden. They are certainly elitists.

In summary, we elected a man who is a complete product, from start to finish, of hard core liberalism with almost every variety of radical left theology present. He is the expected child of the 1960’s radicalism that directly opposes God and sees itself as the alternative.

It still amazes me that he was elected.

It's more Marxist and anti-Capitalist than it is racist. It only uses race as a means of spreading anger and resentment in the black community where they hope many of the revolutionaries will come. Thugs and gang-bangers, etc.

Obama Espoused Radical [communist revolutionary] Views in College
Steve Malzberg - WOR News Talk Radio 710 ^ | February 12, 2010 | Ronald Kessler
Dr. John C. Drew, a grant writing consultant in Laguna Niguel, Calif., tells Newsmax he met Obama in 1980 when Obama was a sophomore at Occidental College in Los Angeles. Drew had just graduated from Occidental and was attending graduate school at Cornell University.

During Christmas break, Drew says he was at Grauman-Boss’ home in Palo Alto when Obama came over with Mohammed Hasan Chandoo, his roommate from Pakistan.

“Barack [Obama] and Hasan showed up at the house in a BMW, and then we went to a restaurant together,” Drew says. “We had a nice meal, and then we came back to the house and smoked cigarettes and drank and argued politics.”

For the next several hours, they discussed Marxism.

He [Obama] was arguing a straightforward Marxist-Leninist class-struggle point of view, which anticipated that there would be a revolution of the working class, led by revolutionaries, who would overthrow the capitalist system and institute a new socialist government that would redistribute the wealth,” says Drew, who says he himself was then a Marxist.

The idea was basically that wealthy people were exploiting others,” Drew says. “That this was the secret of their wealth, that they weren’t paying others enough for their work, and they were using and taking advantage of other people. He was convinced that a revolution would take place, and it would be a good thing.”

Drew concluded that Obama thought of himself as “part of an intelligent, radical vanguard that was leading the way towards this revolution and towards this new society.” ..."

Referring to Obama’s quote from “Dreams of My Father” that he associated with Marxist professors, Drew says, “What he’s not saying is that he was in 100 percent total agreement with those Marxist professors. When you understand that, Obama’s later associations and policies make more sense, including why he was taken in by Rev. Wright’s ideology.”

We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-people’s movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all people’s movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing.

The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in order to continue to deepen and broaden labor and people’s unity.

There are thousands of experiences that we all have had in these momentous days, some large, some small, all of which express the enormity of change in thinking and readiness for involvement that is underway and that steels us for the battles ahead.

The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.

Change is Here, Change is Coming

Sam Webb, National Chair, Communist Party, USA:

Let me begin with a simple observation: If the last 30 years were an era of reaction, then the coming decade could turn into an era of reform, even radical reform. Six months into the Obama presidency, I would say without hesitation that the landscape, atmosphere, conversation, and agenda have strikingly changed compared to the previous eight years.

In this legislative session, we can envision winning a Medicare-like public option and then going further in the years ahead.

We can visualize passing tough regulatory reforms on the financial industry, which brought the economy to ruin.

We can imagine the troops coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan while U.S. representatives participate in a regional process that brings peace and stability to the entire region.

In the current political climate, the expansion of union rights becomes a real possibility.

Much the same can be said about winning a second stimulus bill, and we sure need one, given the still-rising rate, and likely long term persistence, of unemployment.

Isn’t it possible in the Obama era to create millions of green jobs in manufacturing and other sectors of the economy in tandem with an attack on global warming?

Can’t we envision taking new strides in the long journey for racial and gender equality in this new era, marked at its beginning by the election of the first African American to the presidency?

And isn’t the overhaul of the criminal justice and prison system – a system steeped in racism – no longer pie-in-the sky, but something that can be done in the foreseeable future?

All these things are within reach now!

Points taken and I don’t disagree with you. It is an interesting discussion where few would entirely agree on the summary.

Mind you, we only discuss the influences on him that we know and little is known of his college days and travels.... usually the most formative years for any radical.

I believe it would be most accurate to say he is a champion of anything that opposes the ideas and beliefs of our founding fathers (Judeo-Christian values). It is fair to say that he is a man that most Americans will never understand because we are fundamentally different.

We elected a man forged in ideas that are foreign to what you and I see as our core values, but we must also admit that our nation is shifting away from the Judeo-Christian foundation conservatives believe in.

That brings us to the core issue beyond this President. In the 1950’s it was fair to say that 90% of Americans mostly believed in the same ideas. Today, it would be difficult to say that 50% of Americans believe in the same core ideas because all of us have been influenced to some degree by the same ideas that forged the President.

In the long-run, this attack on Christianity will damage Obama. In the short-run, I think that has really hurt Romney and helps to explain the Santorum surge that seems to be spreading across the country.

In a time when traditional Christianity is under attack, a lot of people are not going to feel comfortable with a candidate with bizarre beliefs. How bizarre most people don't completely understand but the part that most people are aware of is damaging (men becoming gods, eternal marriages, sacred underwear, secret temple rites, etc.). Evangelical Christians and Catholics can generally support candidates of those beliefs systems despite theological differences because they have the same social goals. Despite a recent desire to be associated with orthodox Christianity, Mormonism is remembered as the standoffish group that openly criticized and wanted no association with Orthodox Christians.

Being in Texas, I hate Perry’s guts. Even so, he’s nailed this one.

WOAI television news had a three night interview with Ted Nugent last week. He said he thought Perry would have been the best candidate for President, and perhaps the best, most constitution loving President we'd seen since the country's founding.

I agree with The Nuge.

If only Perry had gotten into the race! Then everyone could have seen how great he is...

Oh wait.

Disgusting isn’t it? It still continues and just look at what we now have for choices thanks in large part to bullsh*t like this.

No I haven’t changed my tag in weeks.

You realize Perry ran for the nomination and preformed so badly that he dropped out weeks ago right?

We tried to tell you long before he jumped in the race. No way would a big government,crony capitalist,amnesty supporter with an IQ of 80 ever get the nomination. You wouldn’t listen then and now you live in delusion.

Pity.

Concerned Santorum supporter?

You best be concerned when he gets the mako shark treatment he’s avoided so far.

Humanists in power act with the tolerance of communists. They only lack the collapse of the Bill of Rights and the police state machinery to make it real.

Wonder why humanists hate moral diversity like communists? Let’s see... Hmmm... Bueller, ...anyone?

So how’s that working out for them?

Has this pin-headed, empty-mao-suited moron ever been to Africa?

Slavery was wrong. It was evil. Jim Crow was wrong. It was evil. But African Americans should bless God that they wake up every morning in America and not in Africa.

No. I will vote for whoever has the best chance to beat Romney when my state’s primary rolls around. I will never vote for Romney.
