Barack Obama 'Savages' Catholic Education
American Thinker ^ | 06/20/2013 | Jeannie DeAngelis

Posted on 06/20/2013 7:50:13 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

It's already been firmly established that if a person, group or ideology disagrees with Barack Obama, he becomes fixated on them and then, any opportunity he gets, he makes provocative comments that could be interpreted as a warning shot. The message? Barack Obama doesn't forget ideological unfaithfulness, and if he can, he'll shut you up by shutting you down.

The president has imposed his bad attitude on, to name but a few: Conservatives, specifically of the tea party brand, right-leaning talk radio, Fox News, and the group the left views as the seat of pro-life advocacy, the Catholic Church.

Catholicism is a prime target because it's an autonomous, self-governing entity that continues to insist on having the freedom to exercise the First Amendment right to freedom of religion, and has defied the administration by refusing to submit to Obamacare contraceptive and abortion directives.

So while in Northern Ireland for the G8 summit, Obama didn't waste the opportunity to taunt Catholics worldwide by saying inflammatory things to schoolchildren. Despite the fact that just days prior, Vatican Prefect Archbishop Gerhard Müller told Scots that Catholic education is "a critical component of the Church," Barack Obama, speaking to an audience of about 2,000 students at Belfast's Waterfront hall, made what was described as "an alarming call for an end to Catholic education," saying:

"If towns remain divided-if Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs, if we can't see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to harden-that too encourages division and discourages cooperation.'

It's hard to recall, but when the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner was in Indonesia, Cairo or Turkey, did he also suggest to Muslims that schooling children in madrassas "encourages division and discourages cooperation?"

That’s what worries me, More Catholics voted for Obama than did not.

Forced secularization of the education system is a hallmark of Marxists.

Witness this little Pierre Trudeau production in Quebec in the 1960’s.

Any Catholics that vote for this anti-Christ are CINOs. Their decision to vote for such a person has nothing to do with their Catholicism, which they conveniently compartmentalize and rationalize.

The Catholic Church is the last vestige standing in the way of Obama’s new world. Tear it down at all costs is what he will try to do. But, he fails to understand he CANNOT defeat GOD.

That chart shoes white Catholics voting for Romney 60-40, they are in the clear as far as I am concerned.

The Hispanic Catholics voted 75% for Obama and these voters made the overall Catholic vote slightly in Obama’s favor

I think Obama-Catholics probably agree with him on Catholic education and Catholic hospitals. They certainly agree with him on economics, abortion and healthcare.

See 29.

If Obama is being obama, then I suppose his latest sniping of Catholics from the Presidential Podium (hmm, would he do that in America?) is a b!tch-slap to 5-7% who wised-up between 2008 and 2012. Just a guess...

Wish someone would ask. Muslims refuse to assimilate. Does he point out how "divisive" that is?

Maybe he could go to one of the countries that teach schoolchildren to be terrorists and lecture them.

He is stupid -- I know that. But he's not that stupid. Therefore he's using rhetoric to agitate and manipulate, which makes him evil in my book.

On this topic, at least, my ignorance is not the cause of our disagreement.

There is a passage in Psalm 109, verse 11. It got famous a few years back:

“Psalm 109

Prayer for Vindication and Vengeance

To the leader. Of David. A Psalm.

1 Do not be silent, O God of my praise.
2 For wicked and deceitful mouths are opened against me,
speaking against me with lying tongues.
3 They beset me with words of hate,
and attack me without cause.
4 In return for my love they accuse me,
even while I make prayer for them.[a]
5 So they reward me evil for good,
and hatred for my love.
6 They say,[b] “Appoint a wicked man against him;
let an accuser stand on his right.
7 When he is tried, let him be found guilty;
let his prayer be counted as sin.
8 May his days be few;
may another seize his position.
9 May his children be orphans,
and his wife a widow.
10 May his children wander about and beg;
may they be driven out of[c] the ruins they inhabit.
11 May the creditor seize all that he has;
may strangers plunder the fruits of his toil.
12 May there be no one to do him a kindness,
nor anyone to pity his orphaned children.
13 May his posterity be cut off;
may his name be blotted out in the second generation.
14 May the iniquity of his father[d] be remembered before the Lord,
and do not let the sin of his mother be blotted out.
15 Let them be before the Lord continually,
and may his[e] memory be cut off from the earth.
16 For he did not remember to show kindness,
but pursued the poor and needy
and the brokenhearted to their death.
17 He loved to curse; let curses come on him.
He did not like blessing; may it be far from him.
18 He clothed himself with cursing as his coat,
may it soak into his body like water,
like oil into his bones.
19 May it be like a garment that he wraps around himself,
like a belt that he wears every day.”
20 May that be the reward of my accusers from the Lord,
of those who speak evil against my life.
21 But you, O Lord my Lord,
act on my behalf for your name’s sake;
because your steadfast love is good, deliver me.
22 For I am poor and needy,
and my heart is pierced within me.
23 I am gone like a shadow at evening;
I am shaken off like a locust.
24 My knees are weak through fasting;
my body has become gaunt.
25 I am an object of scorn to my accusers;
when they see me, they shake their heads.
26 Help me, O Lord my God!
Save me according to your steadfast love.
27 Let them know that this is your hand;
you, O Lord, have done it.
28 Let them curse, but you will bless.
Let my assailants be put to shame;[f] may your servant be glad.
29 May my accusers be clothed with dishonor;
may they be wrapped in their own shame as in a mantle.
30 With my mouth I will give great thanks to the Lord;
I will praise him in the midst of the throng.
31 For he stands at the right hand of the needy,
to save them from those who would condemn them to death.”
