True to form, Democratic presidential candidate, Barack Hussein Obama continues to reveal his disdain –and bleak ignorance– for scripture, the Bible and sexual morality, by telling a college group in Ohio that THE most significant and comprehensive scriptural text condemning homosexuality in both men and women is an “obscure passage”.
“I don’t think it [a same-sex union] should be called marriage, but I think that it is a legal right that they should have that is recognized by the state,” said Obama. “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think is, in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans.” ((Hear audio from WTAP-TV))
In case you don’t understand the depth of this dissing of scripture, here’s the definition of obscure:
1 a: dark, dim b: shrouded in or hidden by darkness c: not clearly seen or easily distinguished : faint <obscure markings>2: not readily understood or clearly expressed; also : mysterious3: relatively unknown:
If Obama can summarily assasinate this scripture as unimportant, then what else will he toss to the side? The larger question is can we call any of the Bible “obscure” and relegate it to unimportance? Not according to 2 Timothy 3:16,17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
Yet, some Christians (more than likely the carnal, spiritually immature types) are pinning their hopes on him with an almost idolatrous fervor. One “gospel artist” sang Obama’s praises as if he were equal to Jesus himself.
Two sources cover the story in depth. Incidentally, the mainstream media’ lack of discussion on the talk, ensures that no one other than “bigoted Christians” will be concerned about Obama’s obamanation.
