Michelle Obama Cites Jesus as Model for Citizenship
ABC News ^ | 6/29/12 | Devin Dwyer

Posted on 06/29/2012 10:06:37 AM PDT by Nachum

First lady Michelle Obama Thursday offered a rare public reflection on her religious faith, telling a conference of the African Methodist Episcopal church that the life of Jesus Christ is a model for democratic organizing. “It’s kind of like church,” Obama said. “Our faith journey isn’t just about showing up on Sunday for a good sermon and good music and a good meal. It’s about what we do Monday through Saturday as well, especially in those quiet moments, when the spotlight’s not on us, and we’re making those daily choices about how

The Obamas appreciate those citizens who are willing to be crucified by tyrannical governments.

“Time and again, history has shown us that there is nothing – nothing – more powerful than ordinary citizens coming together for a just cause,” Obama said.

The "just cause" this time being the repeal of Obamacare/TAX.

Funny, somehow I missed the Scripture where Jesus approved of all kinds of abortion and same sex marriage.

I wonder if Michelle defines “sin” as “being out of alignment with her values.”

Just curious.

"Thou shall not covet thy neighbors goods." How do you feel about this particular commandment, Moochelle? How about the other 9?

The democrats pick out parts of the Bible they like, and try to outlaw all those they don't. That's the democrat form of Christianity.

Seriously! That’s some funny stuff! I don’t tend to be a religious person but I’m under the impression that Jesus was not a man that endorsed homosexuality, perversion or murder by abortion as a way to a good life or community. Just WOW!

One wonders if her, and her husband, cite Jesus’ command to ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you’ when it comes to their sanctioning and legislating the approval of ripping unborn babies apart, limb from limb.

Perhaps their own souls’ journey to God’s promised land may be aborted. Serves ‘em right.

Uhh “moochelle” Jesus was born(around 3 BC) in Bethlehem in Judea during Roman Rule therefore he was NOT a “citizen” He was a DOUBLE “subject”;

Yes, like the righteous TEA Party - The Bible says "If you don't work, you shouldn't eat."

No man should be used as another mans slave. The TEA Party has it right. They truly do work for a noble cause - the total elimination of slavery for one and for all.

Galatians 5:19-21 reflect the Obama’s spiritual journey. I like the New Living Translation of this scripture best. It really expresses in today’s english what they are doing and what will happen to them.

” ..the life of Jesus Christ is a model for democratic organizing.”

****

That famous passage where the disciples finally decide to vote Jesus from mere prophethood into a full fledged Messiahship is particularly instructive.

As is the story where Jesus tells the tax collector to come down from the tree and begin organising the poor in his community to demand Section VIII housing from their Roman oppressors.

And then there is poor Lazarus, whose resurrection would not have been possible without free healthcare.

Ok, I’ll stop now!

Now she is making the rounds of the churches,I don't know why she bothers all the black Church's, people will vote for the losers..

I did hear the amazon woman is off on vacation to London next month..

http://www.whitehousedossier.com/2012/06/22/michelle-headed-london/

Now this is what I call a grand excursion.

First Lady Michelle Obama will be on her way to London next month, leading the U.S. delegation to the Olympic Games, which start July 27 and end August 12.

I assume she will take her daughters. It’s not clear how long they will be staying, but it’s more than likely they will make a vacation out of it.

Michelle and the girls each year take an exorbitant vacation without Barack to some far-flung locale, mostly at taxpayer expense .

In 2009 they went on a luxury trip to the “Spanish Riviera,” staying in what must qualify as a SIX STAR hotel in gorgeous Marbella.

In 2010 they went to southern Africa, this time throwing in some “official” events so that the safari and other exciting activities they engaged in didn’t look quite so tourist-like. Michelle brought her nephews and her mother along to help represent the United States of America.

It’s not clear why the United States needs to send a delegation to the Olympic games, but nevertheless, Michelle has decided she will bear the burden. The trip is also ostensibly an opportunity for her to promote her “Let’s Move” kids’ fat reduction program, though it’s hard to imagine this will take up a lot of her time.

Moochelle using religion as a weapoin reminded me of an old Woody Allen joke:

"Years ago, my mother gave me a bullet...a bullet, and I put it in my breast pocket. Two years after that, I was walking down the street, when a berserk evangelist heaved a Gideon bible out a hotel room window, hitting me in the chest. Bible would have gone through my heart if it wasn't for the bullet." - Woody Allen

Wake up America!

See through the Leftwing media propaganda!

Michelle Obama is not talking about the Jesus Christ of Christians.

She is talking about the "Jesus Christ" of her and Barack's church of "Black Liberation Theology." The founder of "Black Liberation Theology," James Cone, and his most devote follower Reverend Jeremiah Wright - holds that Jesus Christ was a Black Palestinian Revolutionary who violently fought White Romans and Jews.

This "model for citizenship" that the Obamas believe in and ABC dutifully sugarcoats, teaches the following - according to James Cone in his 1970 book “A Black Theology of Liberation” (LINK):

The black Christ is he who threatens the structure of evil as seen in white society, rebelling against it, thereby becoming the embodiment of what the black community knows that it must become." (page 121)

"The black Christ is he who nourishes the rebellious impulse in blacks so that at the appointed time the black community can respond collectively to the white community as a corporate “bad nigger,” lashing out at the enemy of human-kind."(page 121)

"To be a disciple of the black Christ is to become black with him. Looting, burning, or the destruction of white property are not primary concerns. Such matters can only be decided by the oppressed themselves who are seeking to develop their images of the black Christ". (page 123)

According to the article, FLOTUS said, “Jesus didn’t limit his ministry to the four walls of the church.” This is precisely what the Catholic bishops have been saying. She makes a great argument against the HHS mandate being imposed by POTUS and Sebellius. Oh, the irony, if Cardinal Dolan finds a way to use her remarks in defense of the Catholic Church against the mandate.
