Obama uses Prayer Breakfast to Promote Political Agenda

By Bobby Eberle

I understand that this is the political season. GOP candidates are crisscrossing the country, and Barack Obama is preparing himself to take on the winner. But is nothing sacred any more? And by sacred, I mean SACRED... as in prayers and references to God and Jesus. Apparently the answer is no, because at Thursday's National Prayer Breakfast, Obama used the occasion to basically state that Jesus was on his side.

First, we have Obama's shot at Mitt Romney. In an interview with CNN following his election victory in Florida, this is exactly what Romney said:

By the way, I'm in this race because I care about Americans. I'm not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there. If it needs repair, I'll fix it. I'm not concerned about the very rich, they're doing just fine. I'm concerned about the very heart of the America, the 90, 95 percent of Americans who right now are struggling and I'll continue to take that message across the nation.

Of course, any left wing media operative stopped listening to the quote as soon as Romney hit the word "poor." It's become the "Romney is not concerned about the poor" gaffe. And Obama used the National Prayer Breakfast to take his jab at Romney.

As noted in The Hill, Obama said during the gathering of about 3,000 people that "It's ... about the biblical call to care for the least of these, for the poor, for those at the margins of our society," Obama said on Thursday. "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.'"

When questioned about the statement at Thursday afternoon's White House press briefing, spokesman Jay Carney had one of the lamest responses I've ever heard:

At the White House on Thursday afternoon, spokesman Jay Carney said the "poor" reference was not a direct response to Romney, adding that that would suggest that every conversation about the poor in houses of worship would have a political context. The president "was explaining how his faith guides him. It was not a political event," Carney said.

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.

    Obama self righteously states;
     
    “To much is given, much is required”???????? No wonder his voice dropped and his eyes fell when he said it. What happened to that economy we gave and entrusted to you? What happened to balancing the budget when we entrusted our money to you to spend wisely. What happened to you when we trusted your sworn oath to protect and defend the United States Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic that you crawled into bed with? What happened when we trusted you to be the good Samaritan and good steward of the American wealth entrusted into your care and only found out you were to become the government tax mugger who left us, our jobs, and personal finances beaten and bloody on the road with the good Samaritans thrown into jail by your thought police unable to help, and our children held captive and sent to years of debtors prison to pay off your socialist foolishness, while you and your God government of Self-God men from whom all our blessings must flow continued to demand that we worship you with our votes and our tax dollars.
     
    You were not only given much, you were given the keys to the kingdom which you trashed and soiled faster than a Barney Frank sneeze into your Liberal Progressive Secular American economic and moral handkerchief. You most assuredly learned your Christianity at the feet of the Wrong Reverand Wright, after being deprogrammed from the infancy of a Muslim education and mindset. Can you just once mouth a REAL Christian tenent without the subsequent tarnishing by linking it with politically correct Muslim pandering? You are fooling nobody but the ininformed who you manipulate in an extreme unChristian manner.

      You asked “What happened to balancing the budget when we entrusted our money to you to spend wisely”.
       
      See if you can pay attention long enough to reflect on the following:
      When he took office President Bush took a balanced budget with a surplus (Which, by the way helped to start to bring down the National Debt) and immediately took that money and gave it back in the form of the Bush tax cuts which have cost the country about 800 billion each year for a total of approximately 8 Trillion Dollars and counting (10 Years X 800 Billion).
      Also, if you check the the history of the Debt Limit from the Congressional Research Service report prepared for members of Congress, you will find that on 9/30/01 the debt stood at 5.8 trillion and on 9/30/08 is stool at 10 trillion. That’s an increase of 4.2 trillion or an increase of 172%. If you don’t believe me follow the link

      http://www.treasurydirect.gov/govt/reports/pd/histdebt/histdebt_histo5.htm

      Your living an illusion if you actually think the Republicans are any more responsible with the American taxpayer than the Democrats.
      As long as the Bush Tax Cuts are maintained by our Congress we will continue to have the Debt go up because in spite of and since these massive tax cuts took place the unemployment rate has been the worst since the Great Depression. This means that tax receipts will continue to be low, and thanks for the Bush Tax Cuts will continue to increase the National Debt.
      So if you are a loyal Republican keep your head in the sand and this country will continue to go further in debt.
      My only hope for you and the rest of your friends is that you become LOYAL AMERICANS, and get rid of all these congressmen and put in place people that are not owned by the powers who care more about their own bottom line than the do about the Country.

      brsdiehard, it is YOU who are living an illusion if you think that the Bush deficits were brought on by anything other than the military response to the attack on America on 911. Before the attack the Bush tax cuts were doing just what they were supposed to do which is just what John Kennedy did when he cut taxes and the economy began to grow jobs and wealth. What is Obama’s excuse???
       
      In case you didn’t listen to your Hero Obama in the state of the union address, the one truth in the entire speech was when he said governments should only be doing for people collectively that which they are unable to do for themselves,,,,AND NO MORE. ( He only states this before an election to prepare the voters for the coming benefit cuts and tax increases to cover his failed social experiments)
       
      In your misguided passion to discredit Bush who only did collectively that which is the basic reason people come together to  form government (which is SELF DEFENSE and war) which alone they cannot accomplish as individuals, you would corrupt our citizens collectively in your socialist dependency to weaken them so they can no longer do the basic things individually that basic life 101 demands, such as  feeding youself, housing, taking care of your health and wiping the drool off your leaking orifices.
       
      Since your dark Messiah Obama opened another can of his darkness at the Prayer luncheon, in one more failed attempt to overcome the Christain light that surrounded him, I’ll explain to you a very Christian and Catholic concept called  the “Principle of Subsidiarity” which Obama misquotes and abuses. It  goes like this;
       
      In the secular world the principle of subsidiarity means that local government should do only that which individuals cannot do themselves, state governments should do only those things the local governments cannot do, and the federal government should do only those things the individual state governments cannot do. Our Protestant founding fathers embraced this concept with both fists, in their belief in a structured Constitution that enforced both the concepts of individual freedom and “States Rights”.Those things not enumerated in our Constitution were left to the power of the people and the power of the states. Individual healthcare education and charity are ALL things that individuals can do acting alone or in concert with others and need no federal cash skimming federally democrat infested government of Self-God men involved to corrupt any of the three concepts.

      I agree with your opinion about the Republicans not being any better than the Democrats.  They might have been at one time, but the world is changing and so are the Republicans.  More and more we are losing conservatives and gaining liberals.  The Right has become just as extreme as the Left, and it is an illusion to think differently.

      Fulton Sheen 

      We just need to realize it is the Christian Concepts enumerated in our Constitution which unite us, and the adulteration and politization of those concepts that divide us. The farther we distance ourselves from these uniting concepts the more divided we remain. Enter Obama and his class warfare on those concepts which he supports with his words to get votes, but ignores with his destructive deeds and actions that put the people in peril as night follows day and light overcomes darkness.

      Light eventually overcomes all darkness, but this is the time for chastisement for the multitude of sins, then will light follow and not until.  We must pay for our sins which everyone with even a basic knowledge of the Bible knows to be true.  “Oh, yee of little faith,” has nothing to do with our present and coming tribulations.

      Look about you at the empirical evidence of the price we are NOW paying and look at the Debt our children will have to pay for following the progressive pandering piped pipers of entitlement. Does anyone think we are not NOW reapiing the foolishness we have sown as we speak? Praise be we have a forgiving God who disciplines the ones he loves as the good father always does, who whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our consciences yet indeed shouts at us in our pain. The enabling Liberals would remove the corrective pain, avoid the discipline and choose to live in the pleasures of immediate gratification and thus never learn the lessons to change.These are the 10% poor Christ speaks of who will always be with us, that previously only required the 10% tithe that the Liberals have now driven into the 47% category by playing the foolish God themselves. This is why socialism ALWAYS fails in the end. Those who deny their father to dispise and dispose of their children will continue to suffer the foolishness of God’s Justice, but we have a Savior who has brought us the light of hope in the secular dark. No, I am not talking about the American Ballot Box,,,that gift we can thank our Christian forefathers for.

      A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
      America is just that woman in travail, who will soon give birth to a new spiritual awakening.

      From article,..Obama said on Thursday. “To answer the responsibility we’re given in Proverbs to ‘speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,..
      BUT,..in all fairness, Odunga’s form of ‘Christianity’ does not include the the little ones in the womb that cannot defend or speak for themselves. Exactly like Satan,..to Odunga,..it’s totally acceptable to slaughter them.
      Years ago, the wise Christian realized the nation that accepts the barbaric slaughter of it’s own innocent defenseless unborn as a legal democrat created ‘policy’ would eventually bring God’s judgment. Could that be occurring now?

      Inluminatuo, glad it was just a typo. So many people mispronounce words or use them inappropriately. I should have been a school teacher, as correctness in my childhood home was extremely important. I’m grateful to both my parents for increasing my vocabulary by employing “big” words in conversation. However, in my “old age” I am constantly reaching for the dictionary to be sure I spell words correctly, lest I make a mistake.

      Obama religiously stated he believes his individual salvation depends of the salvation of the collective. This is secular socialism beyond the pale. Not only would he redistribute the hard earned wealth of American citizens, he would redistribute their hard earned salvation in a socialistic attempt to save the unworthy through the deeds of the righteous via his messiah like fiat. How pathetic.
       
      His ilk would appear before St. Peter at the gates of heaven demand not on his own deeds, but the deeds of the collective to save his soul. Not to matter his own corruption, so long as the corruption of the morally disintegrating collective diminishes corruption of his own deeds by comparision. His collective values to be judged upon not his individual values and deeds. Politics is indeed the last refuge of a Scoundral.

      Dear Mr. brsdiehard,
      You must be a democrat. The reason I say that, is when people other than democrats speak the truth, a democrat will immediately place the blame on bush. Time to wake up and smell the coffee sir. it’s now Nobamas game, and face it, he’s got to be THE WORST president, and I don’t capitalize it because he doesn’t deserve the title, nor do the rest of  the idiots in washington, democreat and republicans alike. Face it sir, we have been sold out by the greed and corruption on both sides of the fence. Once we all can get past this democrat or republican BS, and stick together like the idiots in the wh, we can take our country back and make it a great nation once more. God might give us His blessing back, but we are letting this country become another soddom and gomorrah and moralless nation, so I think we may deserve what we get because we let those in the wh do whatever they want.

    Perhaps Obama would do well if he had an understanding of the Old Testament descriptions of charity. It is anonymous, personal giving. It says to leave the corners of your fields un-reaped, so that the poor can avil themselves of it by their own efforts and labor. I rather doubt if you can find, in either the Old or the New Testament, a mandate for governmental redistribution.

      The Old Testament left ample food for those who considered the Lillies of the field and the birds of the air and turned to God, not men,,,a just God who instructed good men to allow the poor to glean from the left overs of the field which were always enough.  Obama would have the good men drop their harvesting and hand serve the Liberal government dependent couch potatoes, who have become our new masters, with the first yield of our crop and the prime cuts of our hard earned labor,,,,,or at least the first 35% in taxes they propose to increase,,,,,,Ohhhhh for the days when we only had to tithe 10% and the poor actually had to go out and pick up their own food in the fields instead of getting it spoon fed to them in socialist Obamnite corruption. Now it is not only food for their open hands, but homes, free lunches, healthcare, retirement, ipods, computors, HD Tvs, drugs and booze. This is what you get when you worship at the secular church of the living Self-God of government. It is time to starve the beast and let God provide for the poor through the hearts of men, not the taxes of mice and rats with the human face of DemocRATS.

      Obama and the reprobate moral values of immediate gratification that he would establish for the American nation reflect more that of Caligula and Nero, than the august Augustus, or the military might of a Juliius.

      Good is bad, bad is good, work avoidance is rewarded, real work is punished, the rich in spirit become the poor in pocket, while the poor in ambition just sit back and laugh at us while their devour the best of our efforts. You cannot call your self Christian and continue to vote these men into power over your souls and your God rewarded wealth. He who earns the stewardship and the blessing always puts it to the best use of society as God speaks to his conscience who the secular liberals would silence at every opportunity so that it is THEY who become our new masters of worship.

      Ant-Communist, anti-Socialist Pope Benedict on Truth and Charity;

      “ I am aware of the ways in which charity has been and continues to be misconstrued and emptied of meaning, with the consequent risk of being misinterpreted, detached from ethical living and, in any event, undervalued.
       
      A Christianity of charity without truth would be more or less interchangeable with a pool of good sentiments, helpful for social cohesion, but of little relevance. In other words, there would no longer be any real place for God in the world. Without truth, charity is confined to a narrow field devoid of relations.
       
      Through this close link with truth, charity can be recognized as an authentic expression of humanity and as an element of fundamental importance in human relations, including those of a public nature. Only in truth does charity shine forth, only in truth can charity be authentically lived. Truth is the light that gives meaning and value to charity. That light is both the light of reason and the light of faith, through which the intellect attains to the natural and supernatural truth of charity: it grasps its meaning as gift, acceptance, and communion. Without truth, charity degenerates into sentimentality. Love becomes an empty shell, to be filled in an arbitrary way. In a culture without truth, this is the fatal risk facing love. It falls prey to contingent subjective emotions and opinions, the word “love” is abused and distorted, to the point where it comes to mean the opposite. Truth frees charity from the constraints of an emotionalism that deprives it of relational and social content, and of a fideism that deprives it of human and universal breathing-space. In the truth, charity reflects the personal yet public dimension of faith in the God of the Bible.
       
      When animated by charity, commitment to the common good has greater worth than a merely secular and political stand would have. Like all commitment to justice, it has a place within the testimony of divine charity that paves the way for eternity through temporal action.
       
      Without truth, without trust and love for what is true, there is no social conscience and responsibility, and social action ends up serving private interests and the logic of power, resulting in social fragmentation, especially in a globalized society at difficult times like the present.
       
      .In reality, institutions by themselves are not enough, because integral human development is primarily a vocation, and therefore it involves a free assumption of responsibility in solidarity on the part of everyone. Moreover, such development requires a transcendent vision of the person, it needs God: without him, development is either denied, or entrusted exclusively to man, who falls into the trap of thinking he can bring about his own salvation, and ends up promoting a dehumanized form of development. Only through an encounter with God are we able to see in the other something more than just another creature to recognize the divine image in the other, thus truly coming to discover him or her and to mature in a love that “becomes concern and care for the other.”

    Now, all of a sudden, President Obama has become an admitted Christian and is a man of God, and is doing God’s work? And he is behaving this way in public while he is attempting to force Catholic hospitals to provide abortions against their fundamental beliefs but doesn’t mention this in any public venue. Another obvious contradiction between what he says and what he does. This President is such a hypocrite and is the most dangerous man elected President in the history of this country.

    Almost all of us on this forum are people of religion, believers in our faith.  Quoting scripture and using the commandments of God are what we should all be doing, but no one is qualified to speak for God and no one knows the mind of God either.  We’d all be wise to understand the difference and beware of those who seek the authority that only God has.

    Isn’t it odd that Obama only quotes the Bible and claims to be a member of the Christian faith when he’s looking for votes.  He has made fun of Christians, refuses to honor Christmas or Easter, something a true Christian would NEVER do.  He misquotes the Bible’s scriptures by taking a few words out of context to try to legitimize his actions.  A Christian would not bow and kiss the hand of a Muslim leader, or invite Muslim leaders who hate America to the White House, while treating our allies like the Queen of England, or the Leader of Israel, with arrogant disdain.  The old saying, “you are known by the company you keep” certainly shows where Obama’s loyalties are … Rev. Wright (20 years), Obama and Michelle honored Louis Farakan, a radical muslim, as a great example to follow (it’s on video taken at Rev. Wright’s church), Obama’s ties to Bill Ayers, Acorn and now the union backed, Socialist promoting,  law-breaking, property destroying protesters.  Obama and Pelosi have praised them.  Why would anyone vote for this man who is well on his way to destroying our country and our freedoms – WAKE UP AMERICA, before we have nothing left.  If no one has a job, other than working for the government, we are slaves to the government – that’s socialism or communism, and we have seen how well that works in the rest of the world – those people try to escape to America and Freedom to live in a Democracy.  Why, if the LIberals want socialism so much, don’t they move to a Socialist/Communist country and leave ours alone.

      Mathew, the man who wrote the book in the Bible that bears his name was a Tax collector. The difference was that he allowed God’s wisdom and Jesus’s truth to change his heart and become an asset to the church and mankind rather than an asset to Caesar and himself. The tax collectors and money changers who did not listen to the truth got whipped and Chorded out of the temple at the impending moment of salvation. Obama had best take note. The impending moment of American salvation will soon come upon you in November. Thus happens to all who ignore the infinite truths of the hand of providence and the laws of nature.

      Perry didn’t promote his politics, he is a Christian and was a speaker to only strengthen other’s faith in Jesus. 

      Obama is forcing Christian churches and other religious organizations to fund the abortion pill and contraceptives….and now Obama states that Jesus would want America to raise taxes.

      I don’t think Jesus is too interested in taxes, but he is very concerned about the killing of babies by the Obama administration….Obama doesn’t know Jesus.

      I was there in Houston, were you?  If you had been, you would know that Gov Perry did not use the event for political purposes.  He just joined fellow Christians in praise and worship of the Lord Jesus Christ.  He was politically incorrect (just as were several Old Testament kings) in praying publicly.

      I have mixed feelings about Perry but what he did in Houston was very, very good.

    “. . .you will find that on 9/30/01 the debt stood at 5.8 trillion and on 9/30/08 is stool at 10 trillion. That’s an increase of 4.2 trillion”

    brsdiehard, as most of the Obama apologists are guilty of doing, you blame Bush for a 4.2 Trillion in the national debt even through we experienced 9/11, and two wars during his administration.  But you neglect to mention that in just 3 years Obama has also added almost 6 trillion to the debt because when he took office it was 10.8 and now it is at 16.2  trillion.  You also neglect to mention that a large part of Obama’s debt increases are a result of failed policies such as the $800 billion stimulus, auto maker bailouts, “cash for clunkers”, and a host of other wasteful projects that produced nothing but more debt.  At the rate Obama is going, he will double the debt before he leaves office.  It was just announced this week that we are looking at a $1 trillion deficit in the annual budget for the 4th consecutive year.

    Really? Then what about those millions of unborn children who have been murdered through abortion due to his policies and decisions?  They truly have no voice, at least the poor have the chance at life and to tell others of their plight.  The hypocrisy is overwhelming.

      Right on! But as we also know, the younger generation is too self-absorbed to pay attention to what their government and Obama is doing to them and their future. I work in a crisis pregnancy center and abortion callers don’t want to hear that an abortion will irreversably destroy their lives. One caller reacted with surprise, “You mean they KILL the baby?” Huh??! Yeah, they’re that dumb. We need to save future generations from the abortion mills, the altar of the devil. God help us!

    Barry’s comments follow the script espoused by Saul Alinsky in his book - Rules for Radicals. Barry is so predictable – he’s a good little radical to the core.
    The basic idea of Alinsky is to use your enemies word and beliefs against him. Lie, cheat, and steal. The end justifies the means. Let the others play by the rules. Make it look like your enemy is at fault, to obfuscate your radical agenda. Use this deception to confuse others to your best advantage. I read the Alinsky book, and I know Barry’s end game. Both he and Hillary Clinton were desciples of Alinsky. One would not expect their basic beliefs and subsequent actions to differ very much from his. These radicals are extremely dangerous, deceptive people, and they must be ejected in 2012, if our nation and way of life are to survive.
    On another note, if Nancy Pelosi does not support the position of the Catholic Church on abortion, she and others should be excommunicated. Only then will Catholics take this rebellion by the Church against government oppression seriously.

    46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
    47 And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
    48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

    “I do not understand what Obama was doing at this prayer breakfast except that it suited his purposes at the moment.”

    The reason Obama was at this prayer breakfast is because he had a captive audience to campaign to.  What this tells me is that EVERYTHING Obama does is for political gain.  One of his speech writers decided it was time for Obama to “relate” to the Christian voters, so he took the Bible and found a passage which he thought could support Obama’s definition of charity. He isn’t concerned that he doesn’t understand the context of the passage, he can just use it to make another appeal to raise taxes on “the rich” to force them to “pay their fair share”.

    Obama has made more references to what he describes as the “Holy Quran” than he has to the Bible because he relates more to Muslims than he does to Christians.  He only claims to be a Christian when it helps him get VOTES.

Disgusting display of the principles of the Qu’ran.  Their goal:  lie, cheat, mislead, etc.  So, we normal and intelligent people do not buy into this charade.  Unfortunately, too many others do and that is scary!  A leopard CANNOT change its spots and right now that is Obama continuing down the same path to ruin America and make us slaves.
