Obama: I Pushed Dodd-Frank And Health Care Reform Because Of Christ
BuzzFeed ^ | Feb 2, 2012 | Zeke Miller

Posted on 02/02/2012 8:11:06 AM PST by LucianOfSamasota

President Barack Obama has been taking lumps from Republicans for years over his support for Wall Street and health care reform, but today at the National Prayer Breakfast he claimed support from on high to defend two of his most controversial legislative achievements.

"And so when I talk about our financial institutions playing by the same rules as folks on Main Street, when I talk about making sure insurance companies aren’t discriminating against those who are already sick, or making sure that unscrupulous lenders aren’t taking advantage of the most vulnerable among us, I do so because I genuinely believe it will make the economy stronger for everybody. But I also do it because I know that far too many neighbors in our country have been hurt and treated unfairly over the last few years, and I believe in God’s command to 'love thy neighbor as thyself.'"

"I know the version of that Golden Rule is found in every major religion and every set of beliefs — from Hinduism to Islam to Judaism to the writings of Plato," Obama added.

The president said he often falls to his knees in prayer, and emphasized the role of his religious values in determining where to lead the country.

Coming from Obama...uh yes. I realize even the devil will quote scripture, however this Pres__ent has been so far very anti Christian. Whenever this man uses Christ in a sentence is blasphemy to me.

Obama the 1%-er should be supporting his aunt and uncle—not us, if he believed the stuff he was shoveling this morning.

And his half brother in the old country.

I watched a little of him this morning before the projectile vomiting kicked in—he lies so smoothly.

But everything he says is a lie—including the “and” and the “the”.

Especially when he said that he has been driven to his knees in prayer of late—I said out loud—yeah—five times a day, facing Mecca, on a rug.

Then I had to look for a bucket.

Just imagine the media coverage if President Bush ever said anything remotely close to this about his policy or legislation.

The uber-critical anti-christian politically correct lefty-libs usually, loosely, and conveniently define "hypocrite" as...

"A religious person, especially a Christian who is weak, --or stumbles and sins against God after their conversion...

*********

The OT Biblical definition is...
..."godless" ..."profane" (in God's sight) ..."mocker" ..."dissembler"...

The NT lexicon tell us ...
...."actor" ..."stage player" ..."pretender"

**********

Draw your own conclusions about who is fooling whom...

Hey, Barry, does the golden rule apply to your own brother over in Kenya?

Or is it pretty selective according to your Liberation Theology, marxist ideology, and Islamic roots?

The “golden rule” or the ethic of reciprocity is not part of the cult of islam. They do not believe anyone but other muslims should treated with any ethical restraint.

How about that love being extended to the millions of unborn children whose lives you callously take through your programs so you can buy the votes of those poor wretched souls who would kill their own babies, or the wretched doctors who take part in it?

Sounds like the message of Christ's love got lost somewhere in the translation, Barry.

You are a fraud, Hussein, on every concievable level except your marxist ideology and fundamental change destruction of America.

Yes, and they`re all in error.

The biggest one being in the book of Acts where they mistakenly believed God would return in their lifetime so they sold most of their possessions and lived communally .

My question to the little messiah and deceivers is, why is 15 Trillion and unfunded mandates of 250 Trillion not enough for your god?

Blasphemy and he is really pushing it. He may get something from God that he is not counting on and it will be unpleasant.

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of those who by their wickedness suppress the truth.

Full agreement there.
II Timothy 3:1-7
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Liberation theology confuses Christianity with Marxism. I can’t recall any time when Jesus instructed his followers to have government plunder more from everyone to play politics, and call it charity. Jesus did instruct the rich man to give all his wealth away, and follow him. Notice Jesus didn’t tell the rich man to give all his goods to the government to distribute for him. Notice also that Jesus never claimed the rich man’s wealth wasn’t the rich man’s property to do with as he pleased. Obama should give all he has to the poor, and follow Jesus Christ, starting with abdicating his throne.

Jesus wants those who are already sick to have insurance? I thought He’d just heal you and be on His way. Seriously, where in the Gospels does it say anything about insurance?

Sadly, there are millions of “christians” who will read this and say “obama IS a Christian! I must vote for Him!”
