Obama's Marxist Faith Is Legitimate Campaign Issue
IBD Editorials ^ | February 23, 2012

Posted on 02/23/2012 6:42:17 PM PST by Kaslin

Election 2012: Normally a president's faith is a personal, not political, matter and should be left alone. But Obama's faith dictates his political agenda, and therefore is fair game as a campaign issue.

GOP presidential front-runner Rick Santorum did not go "well over the line," as the White House howled, when he questioned Obama's faith during a recent speech. He didn't go far enough.

Santorum said Obama practices a "phony theology" not based on the Bible. He said it's tied to his agenda and led by "radicals" like the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Both are true statements. But there's more.

What he also could have said, but stopped short of saying, is that Obama's faith — Black Liberation Theology (BLT) — is actually a front for Marxism and communism. That makes it not only a legitimate topic of discussion, but a critical issue worth investigating.

If only the mainstream media would. Thanks to their refusal, Pew recently found 43% of Americans don't know what Obama's religion is. As we said in a series that ran on these pages in the run-up to the 2008 election, it's important they find out.

BLT, in fact, is the Rosetta stone for understanding Obama and his agenda, decoding his rhetoric, and divining where he plans to take this country. Here is a primer:

• The doctrine is an explicitly Marxist interpretation of the Bible whose aim is to stir up class and race hatred.

Black theology is a theology of black liberation. It seeks to plumb the black condition in the light of God’s revelation in Jesus Christ, so that the black community can see that the gospel is commensurate with the achievements of black humanity. Black theology is a theology of ‘blackness.’ The notion of “blackness” is not merely a reference to skin color, but rather is a symbol of oppression that can be applied to all persons of color who have a history of oppression (except whites, of course).

The election of Barack Hussein Obama, an avowed Marxist Communist, closed a significant chapter in American History. Our sixty year Cold War with Communism ended and the Communists won the war.

Obama believes in Black liberation theology.

Which is a Marxist creation. Designed and developed by the Soviets and imported into the black churches of the U.S. for the express purpose of subversion.

Same as the "social justice" theology, imported into the Catholic seminaries -- intended to subvert the priesthood.

Simiilarly, social justice theology was refined in Cuba, then exported into the Latin Catholic priesthood of Central America.

It is time that we all recognized how effective the Soviet attempts at subversion of the USA in the sixties and seventies have been.

The evidence that Barack Obama is NOT a Christian is completely overwhelming, it`s not even a close call.So it really is not judging to come to this conclusion IMHO, yes God is the final judge, but there is simply zero evidence that he is Christian.

I am prepared to declare that here and now, with no fear as I say it.

Now God is the only judge, this much we know...however lets look at the evidence or should I say the lack there of.

Firstly he is pro abortion, that is enough right there...no Christian would argue in any way shape or form for the killing of God`s unborn children.

His charitable giving...he does not give a red cent to any Christian charity like World Vision etc, no interest even in his private life of bringing the message of Christ to a hurting world.

Obama appointed 2 very evil Non Christian women to the Supreme Court.

He is No Christian...case closed...I pray that he asks Jesus in to his life!!!

Most Americans of all ages do not know what Marxism/Communism is or how evil it is. To them it’s just another political view or party.

Obama could proudly proclaim himself a Marxist while on national TV and it would have very little negative affect on him.

I am sure many older Americans know what communism is. After all we did fight a Cold War against it. Many younger people probably do not know.

Well, I guess I'm a follower of the BLT. Hold the lettuce and tomato, though.

Good article though. Satan and his minions have been fighting against the Gospel from the beginning, and will always try to add garbage and flack to distract people from their only hope of Salvation -- the Lord Jesus Christ.

This man James Cone was the conduit.

For those unfamiliar with Mr. Cone, a black theologian "deeply affected by Marxist philosophy", here's a sample:

Hoover Institute fellow Stanley Kurtz, in a political commentary in National Review, wrote that

Cone defines [black liberation theology] as "complete emancipation of black people from white oppression by whatever means black people deem necessary." For Cone, the deeply racist structure of American society leaves blacks with no alternative but radical transformation or social withdrawal. So-called Christianity, as commonly practiced in the United States, is actually the racist Antichrist. "Theologically," Cone affirms, "Malcolm X was not far wrong when he called the white man 'the devil.'" The false Christianity of the white-devil oppressor must be replaced by an authentic Christianity fully identified with the poor and oppressed.

James Cone begat Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the President's "spiritual advisor".

Anyone who remembers Pol Pot, Mao, etc. can not forget. Hell, go to Laos today and walk a block back from the tourist street. North Korea is where we are headed. But everyone thinks, “It is such a good and FAIR system, no one percent, surely WE can get it right.” Of course according to BLT, the leaders must be Black. That right there tells anyone with half a brain where things are going. The KKK in black sheets.

Communism is evil and insidious.

You are right. America is headed to a much lower standard of living.

We are now a Marxist dominated Oligarchy.

The American “nomenclatura” is now pretty much in place.

He is actually Marxist and not Muslim. However, one must realize that in a true Muslim Theocratic State that church and state are one and the same. Such a state is very attractive to a Marxist. Therefore Obama has a natural like for Muslim Theocratic States. There is not much difference between a Muslim Theocratic State and a Marxist State.

The whole Rev. Wright thing and BLT were pretty well vetted in 2008. Bottom line: People didn’t give a crap; they wanted “The One”. We deserve what we get in this nation.

This article is based on something Santorum did not say. Santorum was not talking about Obama's BLT beliefs he was talking about the religion of environmentalism. When I first heard the clip of him saying "it is like a theology to him" I knew he was talking about environmentalism. Something I have taught my children and have said for years. It is gaia worship, earth worship.

I heard Franklin Graham say when he first met with Obama before his election, he asked him if he was a Christian and when he came to the Lord. Obama answered yes he was a Christian and he first started going to church after he was hired by Acorn to be their lawyer. Acorn asked what church he attended and he said none. They then said he needed to attend church to be a fighter/leader of the poor black people. He then joined Wrights church....

The BLT religion is the only exposure he has had to Christianity, after decades with an atheist mother and Marxist/Communists grandparents and mentor(Frank) and a Muslim upbringing and school in Indonesia.
