Obama uses Prayer Breakfast to Promote Political Agenda

While forcing myself to listen to Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast, it was so obvious that Obummer just had to turn it into a political campaign speech. Is nothing sacred anymore?

Bobby Eberle of GOP USA sums it up quite well:

Obama uses Prayer Breakfast to Promote Political Agenda.

Some of what Obama said sounded good (especially when he spoke of Billy Graham)...until he went off the prayer breakfast radar screen and became, once again, the bitter "Criticizer in Chief" in a not so subtle way; which immediately ruined the good parts that he previously spoke within the speech. Obama just cannot control himself! Absolutely EVERYTHING has to end in a fight against his political enemies!!

If President George W. Bush ever did such a thing at a prayer breakfast, the liberal left lunatics of the media of mass deception would have been HOWLING at the moon in anger! But when their "guy" does's OK??

I can't think of a time when Obama has ever said anything remotely nice, encouraging, uplifting, inspiring and most of all INCLUSIVE of conservative Americans...can you?

All he does is play the "race card," the "rich vs. poor card," the "anti-conservative Americans card" (recall the "waving tea bags" and other demeaning statements spoken against the TEA Party while he praised the Occupy Wall Street thugs who have caused deaths, property damage, rapes, crime, squalor in the streets and millions of dollars of police protection and clean up??) the "haves and have-nots card," the "tax the rich card," the "blame the Congress card"...I could go on for pages and pages!

Well, I guess if one loses the support of a top Hollywood liberal like Brad Pitt (supposedly supporting Ron Paul), there is nothing left to do but play every nasty, negative card in the evil liars liberal leftist deck against conservatives.

Mr. Eberle writes:

Hello! There's a difference in talking about the "poor in spirit" and the reference that Obama made. But he didn't stop there. As noted in the Washington Post, Obama added the following:

"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," Obama told the audience. "But for me, as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus's teaching that 'for unto whom much is given, much shall be required.'"

Who funds the government? Who pays the VAST majority of taxes? Much already is required, and for Obama to suggest that Jesus would be on his side in supporting even higher taxes is simply wrong.

The comments particularly riled Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch.

Hatch also references Obama's direct attack on the Catholic church with his mandate to require religious institutions to provide insurance coverage for abortive drugs and other services for their employees that are in clear violation of those institutions' religious beliefs.

Hatch summed up his feelings by saying:

The President's comments this morning share more with political strategy than they do the religious beliefs of most Americans. In 2008, the President declared that his nomination was the world historical moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal. Someone needs to remind the President that there was only one person who walked on water. And he did not occupy the Oval Office.

For someone who is so overtly anti-religious -- remember his 20 years under the guidance of Jeremiah Wright? -- Obama has no business interjecting politics into a prayer breakfast. He should stick to what he knows... dividing the country on race, income, gender, and whatever else that can score him political points.

Hat tips to all links.

The MORON, Obama makes me sick.
Acts like he knows Jesus.
I cant stand this jerk.

Correct, MJ. There is a HUGE difference between genuinely KNOWING Jesus and just attempting to quote Him. Obama can't even correctly present quotes from the Bible! Takes them out of context for his own political purposes. Obama is so pathetic - it's just too painful to watch anymore.

Barack Obama should weigh his words ... especially when God could easily say the following in response to Barack's hypocritical use of His word:

..."unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?

Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee.
(Ps. 50:16-17)

I hope you and your family have a great weekend Christine!

Christinewjc said...

Wow! That is some great Scripture! Too bad Obama never genuinely heeds the Word of God. He only knows how to misinterpret the meaning of the quotes he takes from the Bible and uses them for his own nefarious political purposes. So shameful!

We have a great weekend planned! Hope you and yours enjoy it too!

Minister Joseph Kirk said...

put it in context...
2 Timothy 3:16

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,

Luke 12:48

But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

These words were spoken recently out of context in a speech reported by FNC Fox News Channel………let us clarify them today

But the one who does not know (the wisdom of God through the Holy Spirit) and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much (responsibility), much will be demanded(wisdom and Knowledge for Guidance in true faith); and from the one who has been entrusted with much(the Public “Congregation’s” trust), much more will be asked(the Ox must tread out the grain to provide spiritual wisdom to achieve peace on earth).
