Obama Has No Faith
Townhall.com ^ | June 11, 2012 | Lurita Doan

Posted on 06/11/2012 5:31:17 AM PDT by Kaslin

Acts of faith are performed each day in this country, and we are all the better for it. But sadly, Barack Obama does not seem to have faith in the American system, nor does he believe in American exceptionalism, nor does he believe that Americans can make it on their own without government handouts.

In short, Obama doesn’t have faith in us.

Faith has become an inflammatory topic in the 2012 election. In policy, speeches and campaign ads, the president has used faith as a means to demagogue his Republican opponent. Faith has been used by the left-wing extremists as a diversionary tactic, to attack Catholics and divert attention from a floundering economy. Faith has been used by Democrats as a political tactic to try to turn women against the Republican party. But, faith plays an even bigger role in the 2012 election than Democrats may realize because every day, the president shows a lack of faith that reveals his distain for America.

For example, Barack Obama does not seem to understand that every small business that opens its door is the result of a profound act of faith. An entrepreneur believes in himself and his idea enough to take the risks, sometime to use his life’s savings, to create a better life.

Each time a business hires a new employee, it is an act of faith shown by both parties—the business believes that it can support the increased staff costs and will grow enough to make the expense worthwhile. The employee shows faith that the business will keep its doors open and offer opportunities for upward mobility.

But each small business also shows its faith when it counts on its government to create a climate with policies that support and encourage that growth.

Obama has shown that he doesn’t have faith in small businesses or the judgment of entrepreneurs. Instead he believes that only the government can make wise investment decisions or hire the unemployed.

Obama has shown that he doesn’t have faith that investors will do the wise things on their own. And so, he urges his Administration to invent even more restrictive mindboggling regulations al l designed to further the government’s ability to manage, direct, and ultimately control private enterprise.

Obama has shown that he doesn’t have faith in his fellow American to provide charitably, despite decades of evidence that Americans are the most generous people, the most philanthropically-inclined people, on the history of the world.

We are a nation of faith. America was first discovered, in a profound act of faith, by an explorer, Columbus, who sailed west at a time when most people believed the world was flat. Columbus’ belief, that the world was not flat, was an act of faith that made our great nation possible.

The colonists who came to America had faith that the new world would be different than the old world. They had faith that with hard work and perseverance, they could build a better life for themselves and their family.

Our founding fathers showed their faith in the principles that founded this great nation—to the point where they were willing to lay down their lives to break from England in a belief that the American system of government that they were creating was worth the sacrifice and would stand the test of time. But, Obama doesn’t seem to have any faith in the founding fathers’ belief in limited government.

Abraham Lincoln had faith in the union of the states and fought harder than any during the civil war to keep the nation together, insisting on pardons for Confederate soldiers and determined to move the nation past the great divide of the civil war.

Our nation showed its faith when we sent men to the moon, in an act of faith, so daring, so breathtaking in its scope that it is heartbreaking that our current, faithless presidential leadership has now cancelled the program.

Faith in the future, faith in our children, faith in a better life, faith that one man can make a difference—these are some of the immeasurable gifts that our country gives to the world each day. Our country, its origins, its innovation and its continued success inspire others to action and offers hope to the oppressed throughout the world. Our country is a beacon that attracts people from countless nations to our shores in the hopes of a better life.

Our great leaders and past presidents understood that America is a nation of faith and called upon that faith to bolster the nation during times of hardship.

On the eve of the D-Day Invasion, knowing that America was involved in a great struggle President Roosevelt prayed not for a quick victory, but for faith:”Oh Lord, give us faith. Give us faith in thee; faith in our sons; faith in each other; faith in our united crusade. Let not the keenness of our spirit ever be dulled."

There is a wide and growing gulf between our current president and the American people, and that chasm is all about faith, for clearly, Obama has little faith in Americans as a people, capable of all things great and good.

Faith is frightening to Obama because with faith comes hope, and with hope comes independence and a belief in the future, a belief that difficult deeds can be done, and frontiers can be conquered. In sharp contrast, Barack Obama believes that Americans should place all of their hope and faith in the government rather than in themselves.

America is a faith-based nation, and whether the president likes it or not, our country is all the better for it.

Let us not forget that an entrepreneur must also have enought faith to not only take risk that relate directly to his business but also to willingly take local government on his back in the form of excessive & arbitrary start up fees that amount to nothing less than extortion.

Those who have not started a business of their own can have no idea how those who do are being robbed.

True. His "Black Liberation Theology" is a communist front, bogus church movement.

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.

Barack Obama does not seem to have faith in the American system

Obama believes in Black Liberation Theology and Critical Race Theory. To him, America is based on a system devised by and for white Europeans and he is against it.

In his mind (and according to BLT and CRT), only Marxism can spread the wealth in a way that is just. Meritocracies tilt the scales in the favor of the high achievers (i.e. Europeans, Indians, Orientals)...and that is unfair in Obama's world.

He has a lot of faith. His faith is strong in the belief that America, capitalism and white people are evil. He believes he will destroy it and so far he’s acted on that faith to great effect.

He believes in everything an American scoffs at.

Most of those at the top of the communist movement aren't really concerned about people. They think they're intellectually superior. They're after personal power and wealth (for themselves).

The only thing I take comfort in knowing is that when he finally is out of office, the long knives will come out. All the Democrats he screwed up and over, all the media who he ‘commanded’...once his power to control them is gone, they are going to turn on him like a starving cat on a mouse.

History will not be kind to him. Again, once his power is gone, all those writing the history books will listen not to him, but to those in the Dem party they still must placate. And those are the very people Obama helped destroy.

Nope, God won’t be mocked. But Obama will. We are seeing them turn on him now. Even the NYT and WaPo are running articles critical of him, IMO to endear themselves to the incoming GOP and Romney (and I do not like Romney but even I admit he will be the next Prez.)

And all the bridges he burned with the libs and dems will leave him totally friendless...because the flat out Communists never did react well to failure.

Perhaps God will give America another chance.

That was our final warning according to the pattern of judgement.

In short, Obama doesn’t have faith in us.

And he said it as clearly as possible with his "In five days we will begin to fundamentally change America". Change it to what? His idea of a social dictatorship with bennies for his buddies and crumbs for the rest of the plebs? He HATES FREE ENTERPRISE. He was raised to hate it and he will die cursing it.

From AsiaTimesOnline
Feb 26, 2008

"Barack Obama received at least some instruction in the Islamic faith of his father and went with him to the mosque, but the importance of this experience is vastly overstated by conservative commentators who seek to portray Obama as a Muslim of sorts. Radical anti-Americanism, rather than Islam, was the reigning faith in the Dunham household. ...

Barack Obama is a clever fellow who imbibed hatred of America with his mother's milk, but worked his way up the elite ladder of education and career. He shares the resentment of Muslims against the encroachment of American culture, although not their religion. He has the empathetic skill set of an anthropologist who lives with his subjects, learns their language, and elicits their hopes and fears while remaining at emotional distance. That is, he is the political equivalent of a sociopath. The difference is that he is practicing not on a primitive tribe but on the population of the United States.

There is nothing mysterious about Obama's methods. "A demagogue tries to sound as stupid as his audience so that they will think they are as clever as he is," wrote Karl Krauss. Americans are the world's biggest suckers, and laugh at this weakness in their popular culture. Listening to Obama speak, Sinclair Lewis' cynical tent-revivalist Elmer Gantry comes to mind, or, even better, Tyrone Power's portrayal of a carnival mentalist in the 1947 film noire Nightmare Alley. The latter is available for instant viewing at Netflix, and highly recommended as an antidote to having felt uplifted by an Obama speech. ..."

Normally I’d agree, but he’s PO’d too many on his side. Their power is wrapped up in his. When he fails, they’ll make him an example. Sure, there will be some ‘love’ but I maintain he’s only ‘worshipped’ for the power he has ATM.

Communists have a long history of scapegoating the fallen.

When Obamacare goes down and several of his policies get reversed, those people have a lot less to lionize him for. And remember, his war BS has really upset his ‘lib’ base as well...and now he’s rattling swords over Syria?

Nope. They’ll hammer him as soon as it’s politically expedient. Remember too, he’s half white, and can be said to not be ‘authentically black’ if they need to, so they have an out on that front. Any excuse in a storm - that’s the MSM credo after all. All IMO of course. And I have been wrong before...once...I was Five at the time ;)

Agree there totally. But when his ‘good works’ get gutted (like union loss of power), that achievement will be harder to sell.

You could be right and your logic is sound. I admit that freely and I totally understand where you’re coming from. I just think that all these ‘out for me’ types will put their self interest over his legacy. They are agendists of the first water, I just think they’ll tire of carrying Barry’s.

Anarcho-syndicalism


A common Anarcho-Syndicalist flag.

In the early 20th century, anarcho-syndicalism arose as a distinct school of thought within anarchism.[78] With greater focus on the labour movement than previous forms of anarchism, syndicalism posits radical trade unions as a potential force for revolutionary social change, replacing capitalism and the state with a new society, democratically self-managed by the workers.

Anarcho-syndicalists seek to abolish the wage system and private ownership of the means of production, which they believe lead to class divisions. Important principles include workers' solidarity, direct action (such as general strikes and workplace recuperations), and workers' self-management. This is compatible with other branches of anarchism, and anarcho-syndicalists often subscribe to anarchist communist or collectivist anarchist economic systems.[79] Its advocates propose labour organization as a means to create the foundations of a non-hierarchical anarchist society within the current system and bring about social revolution.

Obama has no faith in America, or in God. And, he has set out to destroy American's faith in themselves, and their belief and faith in God. His goal has been to tear down Judeo/Christian beliefs, their celebrations and practices, and to make everyone dependent on some form of socialistic/communist government instead of having trust and faith in God.

I believe he wants to institute a new "ism" which is his own and based on principles of Socialism, Communism, Marxism. He knows those failed, so he is not a Socialist, Marxist, Communist, per se. I am sure he studied them all, has been schooled by those who support those "isms," but has never really adopted any one of them specifically.

My opinion is that Obama thinks he can do better - remember he is a narcissist with a huge ability to believe in the fantasy that he is superior to anyone. He doesn't feel he is bound by any of our existing laws, and that he is above them. So why would he follow a governmental policy that stymies his power, or adopt an "ism" that has proven to be unsuccessful? I believe he has formulated his own "ism" (yet to be named)but it is a unique combination of theories of other dictators that he evaluated and wants to incorporate to rule this country...and one which he envisions as a perfect dictatorship to replace our form of government.

I am certain that Obama studied our Constitution as a step in preparation for plans to do away with it. He disrespects the Supreme Court; has installed 40+ czars answerable only to him; he has shown his disrespect for all of our core religious affiliations whose belief in God guides them (Jewish, Catholic, Protestant) yet supports Islamic practices; he has set out to divide the people of this country by exacerbating unrest, anger, and distrust among the races, the rich and less fortunate, women vs men; gays vs straight, and has caused widespread resentment and jealousy in our country rather than promoting respect, cooperation, and pride in individual success. Those are all tactics used to tear apart a country from within. They are steps a person follows who wants to become a dictator and puts in practice in order to cause chaos to the point where the government must take control. (ala...supporting the #Occupier movement and hoping for the chaos to escalate to the point where the military must be called up to ensure safety and protection--"martial law.")

The thing is...all of this has been done in a little over three years.

Obama will complete his plan if allowed to serve another term. During that, he will change our government totally and institute his...and place himself at the head...with no hope for a future "election" and he will remain a dictator for as long as he wants. His plan cannot be allowed to proceed. No who the GOP has who we can install in the White House ...Obama must be defeated.

Re your last paragraph. You got that right and November 6 can not come soon enough. One thing though, we have to unite. If we don’t then that arrogant, lazy pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave will be reelected

“He who lives on a diet of Hope will die Fasting’’.— Ben Franklin. Obama is a Godless Marxist who is afraid of people of real faith(Judeo-Christian faith) because people of faith know there is a higher authority than the laws of men and with faith comes the knowledge that each individual is made in the image of a Loving God, not the all-powerful state.
