President Obama Discovers Jesus
President Obama discovers Jesus at the National Prayer Breakfast in D.C.
So much for separation of Church and State, a cardinal principle of the left’s secular humanism.
Republicans quoting Jesus are often pilloried by the Left. Imagine the media outcry if President George W. Bush quoted the Scriptures in support of lowering taxes! Tim Tebow, Broncos quarterback is hammered by the media for his professed belief and thanks to God. Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs, told a Times of London reporter in 2009 that he was a banker "doing God's work." That statement was universally reviled, even by those who do not believe that Goldman Sachs is doing Satan's work.
Having left behind in Chicago during the 2008 campaign the Liberation Theology of Reverend Wright, President Obama then turned to the new Gospel of Buffett and unveiled the 30% Rule. The Old Testament only talks in tithing 10%.
The President should have a teaching moment with his Vice President, a good Catholic. On adjusted gross income of $379,178 Joe and Jill Biden contributed $5,350 to charity in monetary and in-kind contributions. The Bidens’ eleemosynary spirit came to 1.5% whereas the Obamas, to their credit, claimed 14.2% in charitable contributions.
Governor Romney also contributed about 14% of his adjusted gross income to charitable organizations. Warren Buffett had adjusted gross income of $62,855,038, of which he claimed about $23 million in charitable contributions and state and local taxes.
The Disciples of St. Buffett in Berkshire Hathaway are fighting IRS claims for up to a billion dollars in past taxes. Thus the Gospel of Buffett is probably a Gnostic Gospel.
The President also had to back away from his favorite economic prophet, Corzine , formerly of Goldman sachs, who turned out to be a false prophet with MF Securities.
The President is citing Jesus to raise taxes. He quoted the Gospel of Luke “Unto whom much is given, much shall be required.”
When Jesus said “much shall be required,” he didn’t specify that it be to the government. The Romneys, Buffetts and Gates of America are very generous in donating to causes. That is voluntary, the spirit of volunteerism. They will pay in taxes that which the government requires, but no more. They will donate as they wish.
Let us note that while the President is quoting Jesus, his administration wishes to limit the charitable contributions of the affluent. Apparently it is unfair for individuals to decide to whom they wish to contribute since the State has a better idea of the deserving needy.
The Obama Administration is willing to bestow alms on the Solyndras of the world. Solyndra sounds like a name in The Holy Bible, but alas it is a false god of the greens. The President in his State of the Union Address professed his desire to double down on green energy, as if he were worshiping Ra, the ancient Sun God
The President, while citing Jesus as authority for coveting thy neighbor’s wealth, is attempting to force the Catholic Church and its charitable organizations, such as parochial schools, universities, hospitals, and charities, to offer free “all FDA-approved forms of contraception” in its health insurance plans. The Church would thereby be required to pay for contraception. Perhaps the only requirement that would be more abhorrent to the Church would be a requirement to provide free abortions.
The Administration is not speaking through Jesus for this divine inspiration but through The Food and Drug Administration, a human bureaucracy not mentioned in the Old Testament, New Testament or the Quran
Three weeks ago in an unanimous opinion the Supreme Court called the Administrations views on Church and State “extreme” and “remarkable.” The Obama Administration had backed a teacher at a Lutheran School who was fired after trying to return early from a disability leave for narcolepsy. The Court held the government cannot interfere “with an internal church decision that affects the faith and mission of the church itself.”
Clearly God speaks in mysterious ways to this Administration.
