Obama Finds Religion

Posted by Steve Markowitz on February 4, 2012

Here are the words of a famous American politician spoke at last week:

  • “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.'”
  • “And I think to myself, if I’m willing to give something up as somebody who’s been extraordinarily blessed, and give up some of the tax breaks that I enjoy, I actually think that’s going to make economic sense.  But for me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus’s teaching that ‘for unto whom much is given, much shall be required.”
  • “But for me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus’ teaching that, for unto whom much is given, much shall be required“.
  • “It’s not just about strengthening alliances or promoting democratic values or projecting American leadership around the world, although it does all those things and it will make us safer and more secure.  It’s also about the biblical call to care for the least of these, for the poor, for those at the margins of our society; to answer the responsibility we’re given in Proverbs to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.”

Who said these words?  A “Right-wing Christian”?  Newt the Salamander?  Sanatorium?  Romneyous?  Billy Graham?  No, it was President Barack Obama at this week’s National Prayer Breakfast.  Seems the President and others from the radical Left have found God and using religion for political gain.

Imagine how the news media would have reacted if it had been one of the Republican presidential candidates who dared mention his religious beliefs?  Given these words were spoken by one of their own, the Atheist Left gave the President yet another pass, an extension of the one given Obama for his 20 year association with the racist Pastor Wright.

The Progressive’s unwillingness to treat those on the Left and Right equally when it comes to the subject of religion once again shows their disingenuous behavior.  Like the women’s movement that only protects women with liberal political leanings, the Atheist Left only complains about religion when it belongs to those who harbor differing political philosophies.
