The FBI admits that they have not stopped any terrorist attack or caught any terrorists using the Patriot Act.
While Jeb Bush is campaigning on how Rand Paul is wrong and the Patriot Act is great, the FBI admits that it hasn’t had anything to do with keeping us safe as far as they are concerned. This is (somewhat surprisingly) reported in the Washington Times: “FBI admits no major cases cracked with Patriot Act snooping powers.”
FBI agents can’t point to any major terrorism cases they’ve cracked thanks to the key snooping powers in the Patriot Act, the Justice Department’s inspector general said in a report Thursday that could complicate efforts to keep key parts of the law operating.
Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz said that between 2004 and 2009, the FBI tripled its use of bulk collection under Section 215 of the Patriot Act, which allows government agents to compel businesses to turn over records and documents, and increasingly scooped up records of Americans who had no ties to official terrorism investigations.
The FBI did finally come up with procedures to try to minimize the information it was gathering on nontargets, but it took far too long, Mr. Horowitz said in the 77-page report, which comes just as Congress is trying to decide whether to extend, rewrite or entirely nix Section 215.
Backers say the Patriot Act powers are critical and must be kept intact, particularly with the spread of the threat from terrorists. But opponents have doubted the efficacy of Section 215, particularly when it’s used to justify bulk data collection such as in the case of the National Security Agency’s phone metadata program, revealed in leaks from former government contractor Edward Snowden.
The new report adds ammunition to those opponents, with the inspector general concluding that no major cases have been broken by use of the Patriot Act’s records-snooping provisions.
I think the article is being overly optimistic about the rationality of politics to state that this information will affect the debate in Congress. People who are loyal to the surveillance state are dedicated to the need for the government to spy on the people. If they aren’t deterred by the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution, they are not going to be swayed by mere testimony from the FBI.
It is very difficult to survive 105 years as an organization. Any organization would have difficulty making it that long, but a club for boys? With all the changes that have occurred in our culture since 1910, it is amazing that an organization, founded on Christian virtues and hard work, has made it this far. But, this truth makes it even more painful to see her cave.
Christian News reports:
The president of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) [Robert Gates] called for an end to the organization’s ban on openly homosexual scout leaders on Thursday, stating that the group must either conform to society or risk legal ramifications that could possibly spell the end of the Boy Scouts.
It is indisputable the great value the BSA has been to our country and men in countless generations. Not just for those who were members as boys, but even to their sons and daughters. It has helped to produce men who were able to achieve and succeed. But, is the organization itself more important than what it had stood for from its founding until now?
It seems it has become so.
“We must deal with the world as it is, not as we might wish it to be,” Gates declared during the organization’s annual meeting in Atlanta on Thursday. “The status quo in our movement’s membership standards cannot be sustained.”
Robert Gates, president of BSA, is a distinguished man. Gates served as the Secretary of the State under two presidents. He was the head of the CIA. Gates is a man whom I have respected. Even if I have not always agreed with him, he had seemed to me to be a man of integrity. I do not want to pretend that what he said concerning this issue is incorrect, but do we teach our children, and especially our boys, that it is okay to surrender if you are going to lose?
“We cannot ignore growing internal challenges to our current membership policy from some councils,” he said. “Nor can we ignore the social, political and juridical changes taking place in our country—changes taking place at a pace over this past year no one anticipated.”
Yes, but we cannot ignore 105 years of dogged determination. We cannot ignore the safety of our children in the face of a pedophilia-infested group of sexual deviants. Men who have unnatural sexual proclivities toward members of the same sex will now be given charge over young defenseless boys. They have no restraint on these unnatural proclivities and then, because of money and legal issues, you offer up the sons of America to these perverts to save an organization. This is inexplicable.
This is not an issue of not seeing things the same. It is not an issue of whether I think their behavior outside of BSA activities is immoral or sinful. It is an issue of safety. It is an issue of protecting the defenseless from those who would warp and break them; those that would spitefully use them to fulfill their own warped cravings.
Christian News continues:
“Waiting for the courts is a gamble with huge stakes,” he said. “If we wait for the courts to act, we could end up with a broad ruling that could forbid any kind of membership standard, including our foundational belief in our duty to God and our focus on serving the specific needs of boys.”
Basically, BSA is going to fundamentally change. They will look the same, but they no longer will be an organization that is safe for your sons. They have decided that their existence is more important than the safety of their underage members. It would have been better had the organization died a slow painful financial death, which, after this decision, it likely will.

Well, it sure is good president Obama has Mitch McConnell and the Republicans to bail him out or he would have no chance of reauthorizing the Patriot Act.
And here I thought that everything Obama stood for or has done since he first took office has been bad for the country. That’s one of those fun and absolute facts Republicans seem to be ignoring – as if this time will be different. This time Obama is on the right side. Sure.
Establishment Republicans seem to be all for reauthorization, despite the fact it is an affront to privacy, liberty and, oh – the Constitution. But I guess to be a real Republican, one must appear strong on defense – in favor of keeping the homeland safe.
And isn’t that what the Patriot Act was designed to do? Wasn’t it passed to thwart terrorist plots before they had a chance to strike America? They tell us this is why all our data must be collected – because you never from where the threat may come.
And I suppose it has worked. All that data collection must have stopped hundreds of terrorist strikes. Otherwise, why collect it? Well, if you’re under that illusion – you’d be 100% wrong.
The Washington Times just reported that Inspector General Michael E Horowitz “concluded that no major cases have been broken by use of the Patriot Act’s record-snooping provisions. The agents we interviewed did not identify any major case developments that resulted from the use of records obtained in response to section 215 orders.”
Section 215 “allows government agents to compel businesses to turn over records and documents, and increasingly scooped up records of Americans who had no ties to official terrorism investigations.” But hey – if you have nothing to hide, they say, what are you afraid of?
FBI director James Comey said that maintaining the carte blanche authority to effectively spy on everyone with cause is essential. He said, “If we lose that authority, which I don’t think is controversial with folks, that is a big problem.”
So just how successful has the NSA bulk data collection program been? Well, in 2013, the NSA disclosed that 54 terrorist events had been interrupted – 13 on the U.S. homeland. That’s really good – if only it were true.
The Washington’s blog wrote: “The NSA chief himself admits the numbers are wildly inflated, and there were only one or two terrorist plots foiled. The NSA’s deputy director says that at most – one plot might have been disrupted by the bulk phone records collections alone.” But since that claim, the actual events have “been whittled down to only one that actually relied on the call records program.” It’s no different than what the government does regarding everything – such as the monthly jobs numbers. They make a big announcement that all is well and later quietly revise that number down to the pitiful reality.
In fact, writes the Washington times, “‘Bulk data collection creates false leads, ties up investigative resources and, essentially, undermines national security,’ said Stephen Kohn, an attorney at Kohn, Kohn and Colapinto, LLP. ‘They have a large amount of agents who are working counterterrorism that have no human resources, no leads, no infiltrations, so they have nothing else to do.'”
In other words, FBI agents who used to go out, follow leads, infiltrate potential terrorist cells and use human intelligence are now forced into combing through literally tons of data acquired by the NSA on all of us. It’s a complete waste of manpower, resources and money and is likely to thwart exactly no one.
So, Republicans – scrap the entire Patriot Act and pass something which might actually work. Or instead, do what government always does – just leave everything intact, but simply rename it. Maybe the “Keep America Safe Act” – because who could vote against keeping America safe.

When asked how many homosexuals there are, Americans give inflated answers.
What about you? How many homosexuals do you think there are?
The American public estimates on average that 23% of Americans are gay or lesbian, little changed from Americans’ 25% estimate in 2011, and only slightly higher than separate 2002 estimates of the gay and lesbian population. These estimates are many times higher than the 3.8% of the adult population who identified themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender in Gallup Daily tracking in the first four months of this year.
Just think about that. 23 percent is almost a fourth of the population. Only four years ago people on average did think a fourth of the population was homosexual!
Where would they get the idea that so many people are homosexual?
According to Wikipedia,
White Americans are the racial majority, with a 77.7% share of the U.S. population. Hispanic and Latino Americans amount to 17.1% of the population, making up the largest minority. African Americans are the largest racial minority, amounting to 13.2% of the population.
So Americans think there are more homosexuals than Hispanics and more Homosexuals than African Americans.
That is preposterous, yet that is what Americans commonly believe.
The widely off-the-mark nature of Americans’ estimates is underscored by the finding that in the most recent update, from May 6-10, only 9% of Americans estimate that the gay and lesbian population is less than 5% — where Gallup’s tracking figure would put it — while at the other end of the spectrum, 33% estimate it as more than 25%.
What could account for such inaccurate opinions?
The Gallup report suggests that general unfamiliarity with demographic data is the culprit, but why would such ignorance lead to such highly inflated answers? Why didn’t anyone say they only make up half a percent of the population?
I have three answers to suggest: the media, education, and politics.
In the media, TV dramas constantly feature a cute homosexual or a homosexual couple. News stories constantly feature homosexuals and tell us sympathetic stories about them. One would think they are everywhere based on the media. Even a reputedly conservative magazine would rather publish their propaganda than actually produce conservative essays that conservatives want to read.
In education, misinformation abounds. Even if they don’t directly teach inflated numbers, they spend so much time on the issue that, again, they give the impression that (as they say) “everybody is doing it.”
In politics, these people have seriously upended the way marriage has been defined in most of human history. How could any minority cause such a great political revolution if they were not a sizable minority? Again, one would think that they must be very numerous based on their apparent influence.
Our culture is being driven by a delusion.
The post How Many Homosexuals? Americans Overestimate their Numbers appeared first on Political Outcast.
We live in a time where we have two Antichrists emerge in our time, with one ruling the most powerful western nation, the U.S., and the other ruling the most powerful Muslim nation, Turkey. These two antichrists changed the world claiming that their legacies are to advance world peace when in reality these two caused peace to depart from the earth.
In Turkey, the worst position to be in is to be a free-thinking journalist while when it comes to Obama, the worst thing to be in our time is a Jew, a Christian or an Arab nationalist. Under Obama Arab nationalism is being wiped out for an Islamic utopia where Obama today is anti Al-Sisi of Egypt, anti-Bashar Al-Assad of Syria and pro-Muslim Brotherhood, pro-Turkey and pro-Iran gaining nuclear ability, while at the same time he could care less when it comes to being a Jew living in Israel, the man makes policy that cares less if the Jews suffer a final solution.
In the Atlantic Monthly, Jeffrey Goldberg, a Jew, interviews Antichrist Barack Hussein Obama on Tuesday afternoon, as President Obama was bringing an occasionally contentious but often illuminating hour-long conversation about the Middle East to an end, Goldberg brought up a persistent worry. “A majority of American Jews want to support the Iran deal,” said Goldberg, “but a lot of people are anxiety-ridden about this, as am I.” Being Jewish, Goldberg believed that it was prudent to keep nuclear weapons out of the hands of anti-Semitic regimes. Obama, who earlier in the discussion had explicitly labeled the supreme leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, an anti-Semite, responded with arguments Goldberg never heard Antichrist Obama ever make before.
As to the objection on why an anti-Semitic irrational Iran’s Ayatollah should have nuclear capability Obama answered:
“The fact that you are anti-Semitic, or racist, doesn’t preclude you from being interested in survival. It doesn’t preclude you from being rational about the need to keep your economy afloat; it doesn’t preclude you from making strategic decisions about how you stay in power; and so the fact that the supreme leader is anti-Semitic doesn’t mean that this overrides all of his other considerations.”
Just like a typical antichrist, taking Obama’s argument, Germany during Hitler, although Hitler was an anti-Semite, he deserves to build the Luftwaffe while Iran gains an ability to make all of Israel one whole crematorium. When did any American president ever believe that such vile Muslim leaders like the Ayatollah should gain a right to build anything, would never come out of the mouth of the most powerful man in the West?
Now when it comes to the most powerful man in the Muslim world, known in the Middle East as Sultan-Caliph Recep Erdogan, he is prosecuting free speech like never before during the Kemalist era. The latest example this week, Hürriyet daily, a Turkish newspaper reported that a death sentence was handed down to Morsi in Egypt on Saturday with an article on its website that included the headline, “World in shock: Death sentence to president who won 52 percent of the vote.”
But such a headline was a crime worthy of putting daily Editor-in-Chief Sedat Ergin and his assistants on trial. Why? Hürriyet’s headline, Erdogan argues, was suggestive, given that Erdoğan was also, like Morsi of Egypt, was elected with a 52 percent share of the vote in the August 2014 presidential election, that the headline suggested that he had been “threatened with the death penalty handed down to Morsi.”
Erdogan was suggesting that Hürriyet’s reference to “52%” would send the message that says: ‘Hey, if the man in Egypt was sent to the gallows after winning by 52% margin, so will Erdogan, since he too won by 52% margin in 2014.’
Antichrists, Stalins, Hitlers and all tyrants have one thing in common: Narcissistic Personality Disorder. But these (Obama and Erdogan) are Malignant narcissists since they go into a rage that psychiatrists appropriately call “narcissistic rage.” A Malignant narcissist will always “magnify himself” (Daniel 11:36-37) — to punish the persons or the world who refuse to recognize their superiority and reject their wonderfulness.
So as the Malignant Narcissist Obama hones in on Netanyahu, the other Malignant Narcissist, Erdogan files criminal complaints against editors of the mainstream Hürriyet Daily and its website over a headline that President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has claimed suggests he might share the same fate as Egypt’s ousted President Mohammed Morsi, who was sentenced to death by an Egyptian court over the weekend.
Lawyer Rahmi Kurt asked prosecutors to launch an investigation into Hürriyet daily Editor-in-Chief Sedat Ergin, Managing Director İzzet Doğan and the daily’s Internet editors for “inciting hatred and enmity,” “inciting people to armed rebellion against the government,” “praising the crime and the criminal,” and “spreading propaganda for a terrorist organization.” He also requested their arrest.
“Mr. President, what do you want from us?” the editorial retorted in defense of himself, adding: “Why are you attacking us with blatant injustice and clear distortions? Why are you turning us into a target? What do you want from us? Will you banish us?”
Criminal complaints were also filed against 27 people, including journalists, politicians and artists, for “inciting hatred and animosity in the public” and “inciting people to armed rebellion against the government” just for how these covered the story when during the March 31 hostage crisis that left a public prosecutor dead.
The two antichrists, Erdogan and Obama have everything in common besides narcissism. They both want Bashar Al-Assad gone. They both support that the Muslim Brotherhood should be reinstalled into power in Egypt. They both worked to end Arab nationalism in the Middle East and usher in an oxymoronic idea of Islamic democracy. They both defended Iran’s right to nuclear power. They both turned their backs on Saudi Arabia. They both hated Netanyahu and changed their nation’s policy from being Israel-friendly to turning their backs on Israel. They both communicate in Arabic and speak it fluently. Both of them, whenever the two give a speech, and the Quran is mentioned, both praise it, but whenever biblical issues are mentioned, they both degrade the Scriptures. Both stink to high heaven, and as we say in the Middle East, are a perfect match to being two butt-cheeks in one underwear.

Freedom of expression. It’s not a difficult concept.
Basically, every human being has the right to speak his mind without fear of government punishment or penalty.
Accepted, reasonable restrictions on speech are generally very loose, like no yelling “fire” in a crowded auditorium and no speech that is genuinely disruptive like standing up and reciting the Communist Manifesto while the teacher is trying to conduct class.
Yet somehow, school officials across this land often seem to forget that the right to freedom of speech, particularly religious speech, does not end at the classroom door.
The latest example comes from Somerset Academy near Las Vegas, Nevada, where sixth-grader Mackenzie Fraiser was given an “All About Me” report assignment that was supposed to include an inspirational quote.
When Mackenzie wanted to use John 3:16, however, her teacher said that biblical quotations and quotes from the Book of Mormon were forbidden by the school.
The incident might not have even come to light except that some months later, the same teacher made an assignment about self-esteem, and Mackenzie’s parents suggested using a Bible quote, reasoning that the reason Mackenzie has strong self-esteem is that she is made in God’s image.
At that point, the sixth-grader spilled the beans about her teacher’s prohibition of things scriptural.
Mackenzie’s father, Tim Fraizer, the pastor of Grace Point Church, fired off an email to his girl’s teacher, certain that there must have been a miscommunication.
The reply he received, however, was an email from an assistant principal, Jenyan Martinez, confirming that Mackenzie recalled the incident correctly and that the teacher was, in fact, enforcing school policy.
In her response, Martinez suggested that the reason for banning the biblical quote from the original assignment was because, as an oral report, the assignment would give Mackenzie a, quote-unquote, captive audience for her religious beliefs.
Liberty Institute attorney Jeremy Dys told The Blaze, “When students go to school they do not lose their First Amendment rights. It chilled her speech and, as such, what the school is teaching these kids right now is that it is wrong to reference their faith at school. If they don’t apologize for this mistake … then the lesson that these students will take away is that it is wrong to reference their faith in school.”
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that the academy said in a statement that it values students’ rights and the incident was under review.
The Mackenzies are asking for the school to apologize and allow their daughter to submit her original assignment with the quote for a grade, which seems very reasonable.
Had the situation been inverted, and an atheist student found herself banned by a Christian academy from using, say, a Richard Dawkins quote, the fireworks would be seen far and wide.
So why is it considered acceptable by so many government officials to impose on Christians’ rights while asserting a position of de facto atheism?
The right to freedom of speech should preclude any policy of selective “diversity.”

Brian Kolfage, the most seriously injured airman in US history, has been at the forefront of calling out the corruption of the Obama administration and speaking up for and standing behind our veterans. And he has even faced its opposition against him. Following the loss of three limbs, Kolfage was back charged thousands of dollars by the Veterans Administration. This is a man who served the United States. Yet, when he needed his country to stand behind him, they attacked. Though he was able to straighten things out, it doesn’t stop him from being politically active. The veteran took to his website this week to give voice to how he perceives the coming Memorial Holiday weekend.
Kolfage wrote that he was “extremely disgusted with what Americans have turned Memorial Day into.”
In a similar manner to what Christmas, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving and the plethora of American holidays have become, Memorial Day has also become commercialized.
“It’s now just another ‘holiday’ to profit and sell things,” wrote Kolfage. “It is a day where we should honor the dead who died defending our freedom. Instead, we have turned it into a full-blown shopping bonanza that mimics Black Friday.”
“Is this really how our veterans would have wanted it?” asked the veteran. “TV commercials blasting sales of their products, vaguely and usually never mentioning anything to do with our veterans who died, all to push products and profits up? Are we this greedy?”
Kolfage believes it is an “injustice” and “slap across the face of every veteran who laid down their lives.”
“It’s all to sell crap that doesn’t benefit any Gold Star family, veterans and doesn’t raise awareness for the main problems that these groups face today,” he wrote. “Yeah, it’s all great you saved $ 500 on your big screen TV this weekend, all under the false premise that you’re honoring the dead, right?”
While that may be true of a lot of businesses, there are many that regularly contribute to veterans and their families. The same is true with many individuals who might save money on a particular product on sale during the Memorial Day weekend. However, let’s also understand that businesses are not required to do so and neither are individuals (See Gordan Runyan’s excellent piece on this subject). When they do, it is out of their own generosity to do so and as such deserve to be thanked. But Kolfage is right about the fact that many perceive their “savings” under a false pretense of being patriotic and honoring veterans.
With that in mind, the Air Force veteran does point out that it is the American people, not businesses, who have allowed veterans, their sacrifices, and their struggles to be forgotten. Kolfage, who often speaks on behalf of and aids fellow veterans, says the day should be used to remind people of these things, and I agree.
“Veterans are committing suicides at a rate of 22 deaths per day,” Kolfage wrote. “And there are roughly 5000 children who will go to sleep tonight without their parent because they were killed in war. Let’s tell their struggles and help them.”
Brian admonished people to research and reflect on why we even remember this day. “Help a child who lost a parent and donate a few bucks to a charity who helps them, be a role model for others. If you’re a business owner, I call on you to run commercials that educate the importance of this day and urge your customers to donate to a certain veteran cause. Maybe even give a portion all proceeds to a veteran related charity.”
“Remember those who made this all possible for us,” he exhorted his readers. “Without them, we’d all have nothing.”
He then called on the American people to become active in encouraging others in their community to “help make this day about those who deserve to be honored, as it was intended to be.”
This isn’t Kolfage’s first Memorial Day letter either. Last year, he targeted Barack Obama and blasted him for being “raised to hate America.”
I, too, would like to see the day returned to its intention and above all else, see men honor the original veteran, the Lord Jesus Christ, who laid down His life for His friends so that they might have liberty from sin. I think once Americans honor that spiritual veteran, they will begin to understand and appreciate the sacrifice of the veterans of the natural.

Edward Snowden released new documents that allegedly show the NSA was planning on hijacking app stores in order to get spyware into phones.
Edward Snowden is still releasing information!
In this case, he has shown who the NSA was hoping to infiltrate Android phones.
From The Week: “NSA planned to hijack app stores to spy on users.”
On the heels of Sen. Rand Paul’s 10-hour semi-filibuster to protest the Patriot Act and National Security Agency (NSA) mass surveillance, The Intercept reports that the NSA intended to use the Google and Samsung app stores to infiltrate users’ phones for mass surveillance purposes.
This new revelation comes from a document freshly released by whistleblower Edward Snowden. The hijacking plan was a portion of a program called “Irritant Horn,” and the goal was to enable the agency to install hidden software on smartphones to secretly broadcast data back to the NSA.
Think about how much data you have on your smartphone. Think of all the emails, all the shared data, and all the social media. Spying on your smartphone pretty much means spying on you in your most intimate details.
According to the Intercept:
The document outlines a series of tactics that the NSA and its counterparts in the Five Eyes were working on during workshops held in Australia and Canada between November 2011 and February 2012.
The main purpose of the workshops was to find new ways to exploit smartphone technology for surveillance. The agencies used the Internet spying system XKEYSCORE to identify smartphone traffic flowing across Internet cables and then to track down smartphone connections to app marketplace servers operated by Samsung and Google. (Google declined to comment for this story. Samsung said it would not be commenting “at this time.”)
As part of a pilot project codenamed IRRITANT HORN, the agencies were developing a method to hack and hijack phone users’ connections to app stores so that they would be able to send malicious “implants” to targeted devices. The implants could then be used to collect data from the phones without their users noticing.

Are you being watched by the Federal Bureau of Investigation because of your concerns about an overbearing government?
The answer should be obvious given the nature of America’s budding surveillance state and a new video shows just how far law enforcement officials are willing to go to protect the Homeland from anyone who engages in the dissemination of ideas that are counter to the official narrative.
As you’ll see in the footage below, if you show concern or are outspoken about the upcoming Jade Helm 15 military exercises, then you may be getting a personal home visit from the FBI.
FBI: Basically we’re just following up on a phone call… there’s a lot of news reporting about Jade Helm and that… and I was just wondering if you have a couple minutes to talk about it… you had called in kind of concerned about it… We follow up with anything like that… we follow all that national stuff.
If you’ve ever wondered if there is a main core red list and what it’s like to be visited by agents of the Federal government because you support the individual rights outlined by the U.S. Constitution, then watch the videos below.
According to the federal agents who visited James Casale in Colorado, they are merely trying to gather more information about this Summer’s military operation from citizens who may have come across information not yet available to the FBI.
This reasoning, of course, is ridiculous, as highlighted by Freedom Fighter Reports:
Since when do the people of America know more about a military drill than the FEDS? Almost never, so why in the world are the FEDS questioning Americans about their knowledge in regards to Jade Helm 15?
The FEDS are as seen not taking any notes on what the patriot is describing, which means they already know all that is being said and the only reason for their visit is not for the safety of the citizen it is for the profiling of innocent freedom loving Americans.
The FBI agents were cordial and seemingly confused about the Jade Helm 15 operation.
But make no mistake, they did not visit this American because they needed more information from him so that they could look into the military exercises. Their prerogative was to profile and garner more intelligence about the ‘extremist’ views held by the man who answered the door. They wanted to know what he knew and specifically, who he knew, presumably because they would be paying those folks a visit as well.
The FBI and our nation’s entire homeland security apparatus is now implementing Stalin-esque techniques to keep tabs on dissenters.
Incidentally, the Jade Helm 15 operation is designed to train military operatives how to identify and round up dissidents and subversives (and their children), and then ship them off in shackles to government managed detention facilities.
This is America 2015.

No one is surprised that Barack Obama is ready and willing to tell Evangelicals to be more like him.
I remember back when Barack Obama “changed his mind” about homosexual marriage—that is, he found it politically expedient to admit openly to the agenda he had planned from the beginning. It was amazing to see the reaction from homosexuals. They spoke like Roman Catholics who had just been touched by the Pope. Somehow, Obama’s good opinion of them and their “unions” was a source of life and peace. The entire premise of the good feeling could only be that the President was the representation of the Divine Will.
It wouldn’t surprise me if Barack Obama shares that view. It would explain how he, as President, is so comfortable passing himself off as a teacher in the Christian Church.
Lifesite News reports, “Obama: Churches should stop focusing so much on protecting life and marriage.”
Basing his comments on “my own Christian faith,” President Obama told the Catholic-Evangelical Leadership Summit that churches should spend less time focusing on abortion and same-sex “marriage.”
During a panel discussion on poverty at Georgetown University last Tuesday, Obama criticized churches for how they engage politically, focusing on “divisive issues” such as protecting life and preserving marriage.
The president said, “When it comes to what are you really going to the mat for, what’s the defining issue, when you’re talking in your congregations, what’s the thing that is really going to capture the essence of who we are as Christians, or as Catholics, or what have you, [poverty] is oftentimes viewed as a ‘nice to have’ relative to an issue like abortion.”
In contrast, the president argued last week that churches would gain more followers if they embraced the “powerful” idea of helping those in poverty. “I think it would be powerful for our faith-based organizations to speak out on [poverty] in a more forceful fashion,” he said.
The president also said that advocating the redistribution of wealth is “vital to following what Jesus Christ, our Savior, talked about.”
So abortion and the humanity of preborn infants is “above” President Obama’s “pay grade,” but he has the competence and authority to tell the Christian Church what to believe and what to practice.
The Lifesite article mentions Hillary Clinton’s promise to change religious belief to make abortion acceptable as a context for Barack Obama’s remarks. But we also have Joe Biden recently claiming that “religious condemnation” counts as a violation of homosexual and “transgender” rights.
Obama is also showing the same stupidity that we heard from Howard Dean, saying that Jesus was probably to the left of the Democrat Party.
Finally, Obama’s remarks presume that the Church shows more commitment to abortion and homosexuality than helping the poor. This is a popular belief among Liberals but it is a delusion.
