The anointed one, Barak Obama (aka Barry Soetero) is at it again. This guy can’t decide whether he wants to be savior in chief or the president.
This time, for his speech at Georgetown University, the White House wanted all symbols covered that might be visible while Obama was speaking. University officials put a black triangle over the insignia IHS, widely seen as a reference to Christ.
Everytime Obama uses scripture, he misuses it to lend some sort of credence for his policies. Dr. Robert Gagnon, a bible scholar based in Pittsburgh warned last year that Obama was using religion (or at least his brand of it) to shape political policies. Personally, yes he’s entitled to his warped view of Christianity, but I take offense at the president misusing scripture to justify his actions. To me, he seems to be throwing bones to the church folk.
According to CNS News, while Obama didn’t want the name of Christ visible, he had no problem using a quote from Christ’s sermon on the mount during his address.
“There is a parable at the end of the Sermon on the Mount that tells a story of two men…‘the rain descended and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house…it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock,’” Obama said.
“We cannot rebuild this economy on the same pile of sand,” he added. “We must build our house upon a rock.”[source]
Thanks for the reminder that sand is deadly oh sagacious one. Too bad Obama doesn’t apply that to his abuse of scripture in regards to homosexuality and abortion in this country. Both are built on the sands of cultural vicissitudes. And maybe if Obama spent some time in a legitimate Christian church, he would know that.
