Obama and American Christians Now Say There Are Many Paths To Salvation

The leftist mantra that “all paths lead to salvation” is an insidious tool that the Secular Left and the Socialists are using as a wedge to separate Americans from their liberty, and Christians from their faith. That separation is necessary in order to conquer a once free people.

The “Judge-Not, See-No-Evil” feel-good doctrine dominating Churchianity in America has manifested itself from grassroots Socialism in the pews to the political platform of Presidential contender Barrack Hussein Obama, who on March 26 at a campaign stump in North Carolina suggested that Jesus Christ is not the only path to heaven.

What is shocking is not that Obama suggested this heresy, but that many so-called Christians in America agree with him.   I suppose this zeitgeist permeating the lukewarm biblically watered-down and politically-charged Churchianity that masquerades as a legitimate religious faith in America is to be expected.  After all, many mainline churches now approve of everything from abortion to Homosexual Marriage in their council rulings and positions.  The Secular Left has seized on this opportunity to create a new Christian faith that is fused with a Socialist ideology and a hard Left political identity.

The fact American Churchianity will not eschew or identify sin explains not only how biblically illiterate American Christians are with the bible, but how void of understanding what Jesus Himself said about what it would mean to be a Disciple.

Americans are notorious inventors and it is clear that a crowning achievement of the American Left is the invention of a whole new Jesus to fit within a Marxist worldview.

 

Americans: My Faith Isn’t the Only Way

Cal Thomas

Syndicated Columnist

June 25, 2008   

I am shocked and appalled over a newly published survey by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. It finds most Americans believe there are many ways to salvation besides their own faith. Most shocking of all is the majority of self-identified evangelical Christians who believe this.

Apparently they must think Jesus was a liar, or mistaken, when he said, “I am the way, the truth and the life; no man comes to the Father but by me.” Look it up.

This is a product of several things. It is surely a product of biblical illiteracy by people who don’t read, or selectively read Scripture. It is also fallout from the political correctness vice that says you are intolerant if you believe anything to be true, because people who have another truth – or no truth – might feel bad and experience rejection.

If they feel rejection now, wait until they hear, “Away from me, I never knew you.”

If there are many paths to heaven, Jesus suffered and died for nothing. He could have stayed in heaven, sent down a book of sayings and avoided crucifixion.  There is only one path to heaven and it is through him and him alone.

Obama Interview About His View of Christianity – 

Cathleen Falsani, the author of The God Factor: Inside the Spiritual Lives of Public People, interviewed Barack Obama about his faith March 27, 2004, a few days after he clinched the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate seat that he eventually won.

Because of the intense interest in Obama’s faith, she has made the entire interview available uncut and in its entirety.

What emerges is a man who is not comfortable discussing spiritual matters, and is a spiritually confused theological eclectic. He is clearly not a Christian by any biblical, historic measure. He repeatedly affirms then denies Christ, says he believes but is filled with doubt.  

Obama’s faith reflects the Universalistic beliefs of his grandparents. The fact that he felt comfortable in Trinity United Church of Christ, one of the most radical churches in one of the most liberal denominations, is entirely understandable.  

When Falsini asks, “What do you believe?” Obama effectively calls himself a Buddhist, agnostic, Muslim, Jewish, Christian. If you read the whole interview you will see a person who seems to be trying very hard to not take a stand on the Christian faith, yet at the same time tries to identify as a Christian.

The fact that Obamanation sees many paths to salvation should not shock anyone over the news that Obama is also a devotee to the Hindu God of luck; Lord Hanuman.

 

Obama to Receive Lord Hanuman Idol

NEW DELHI: With Democrat senator BarackObama busy in the run-up to the US presidential polls, a group of well-wishers in the capital have decided to send him a symbol of his lucky charm, Lord Hanuman, to help him emerge victorious. 

Obama’s representative Carolyn Sauvage-Mar on Tuesday received a gold-plated two-feet-high idol which she will pass it on to the Obama after it is sanctified. 

The idol is being presented to Obama as he is reported to be a Lord Hanuman devotee and carries with him a locket of the monkey god along with other good luck charms. 

An hour-long prayer meeting to sanctify the idol was earlier organised at Sankat Mochan Dham and by Congress leader Brijmohan Bhama, Balmiki Samaj and the temple’s priests. 

“Obama has deep faith in Lord Hanuman and that is why we are presenting an idol of Hanuman to him,” said Bhama. 

Accepting the souvenir, Sauvage-Mar, who is chairperson of Democrats Abroad-India, said, “Obama has extended his thanks for the support.” 

However, questions on Obama’s religious beliefs elicited just a smile from Sauvage-Mar, apparently to avoid controversy back home where the Democrat senator is pitted against the Republican Party’s John McCain in the Presidential polls

The idol will be kept at the temple for 11 more days and then sent to US. 

“We will perform the prayers for 11 days and then hand the idol to Carolyn who will send it to Obama,” said the temple priest.

 

Isn’t it amazing how many foreigners from Castro to Chavez to Ahmadinejad and beyond are pulling for Barrack Hussein Obama to become President?  The All Things To All People Everywhere Messiah?

Obama: America Is No Longer Christian

Technically this is old news, but since Obama is one step away from the presidency, it’s not a bad idea to review this guy’s dismissal of and outright disgust and loathing of Christians in America.

He’s clever and insidious enough not to come out and plainly say that he detests and considers Biblical Christians to be the spawn of Satan, but all one has to do is read his books, review his statements and those of his former spiritual Advisor, to get a pretty clear picture of what he really thinks about ardent biblical Christians.

Last year he revealed on Meet The Press that Democrats do not like Christians and that they will need to “talk” with Christians if they wanted to win elections.  It’s apparent that what he meant was to jump on the Christian Left bandwagon, where Christian Socialism would be the bridge between his political Marxism and that of religious duty to appeal to biblical followers.  

We should not be deceived.  Obama surrounds himself with individuals that have clear disdain for both Whites and Evangelical Christians.  From the fiery Hate Whitey sermons from his former Pastor of twenty years Jeremiah Wright, the lauding of nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakahn, to his military advisor Merrill McPeak who has no problem equating Evangelicals to Hamas and Hezbollah, it is proper for us to deeply consider Obama’s associations, and the cleverly couched ‘explanations’ of his statements about Christians.

What Christians MUST consider, is that Obama INSISTS and DECLARES that he is a converted Christian, yet continuously supports policies and ideas that are anathema to both the Christian faith, and America itself. Abortion being just one of many, many conflicts that do not square with any Christian tenets.

Obama does not think that one has to go through Christ to get to the Kingdom of Heaven, that one can take any path he chooses to get there.  Considering just these facts, can Obama be trusted with the keys to the White House and safeguarding the very liberties that allow you to worship God the Way Jesus leads you?

Or will Obama, once in office, make official policies to declare your biblical faith a hijacker of “True Christianity” and charge you with “Hate crimes” for refusing to bow the knee to any faith but Christ’s?

History is repleat with men like Obama, who telegraphed their real intentions behind all the fancy rhetortic, and led millions to slaughter once secured in office.

 

Obama: America is ‘no longer Christian’ 
Democrat says nation also for Muslims, nonbelievers

By Aaron Klein
© 2008 WorldNetDaily

 

JERUSALEM – Some have been taking issue with largely unnoticed comments made last year by Sen. Barack Obama declaring the U.S. is “no longer a Christian nation” but is also a nation of others, including Muslims and nonbelievers.

The comments have been recently recirculating on Internet blogs.

“Whatever we once were, we’re no longer a Christian nation. At least not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, and a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers,” Obama said during a June 2007 speech.

At the speech, Obama also seemingly blasted the “Christian Right” for hijacking religion and using it to divide the nation:

“Somehow, somewhere along the way, faith stopped being used to bring us together and started being used to drive us apart. It got hijacked. Part of it’s because of the so-called leaders of the Christian Right, who’ve been all too eager to exploit what divides us,” he said.

Asked last year to clarify his remarks, Obama repeated them to the Christian Broadcast Network:

“I think that the right might worry a bit more about the dangers of sectarianism. Whatever we once were, we’re no longer just a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers,” Obama wrote in an e-mail to CBN News senior national correspondent David Brody.

“We should acknowledge this and realize that when we’re formulating policies from the state house to the Senate floor to the White House, we’ve got to work to translate our reasoning into values that are accessible to every one of our citizens, not just members of our own faith community,” wrote Obama.

Oregon has a large evangelical Christian community.

Obama did clarify his statement about the “Christian Right.”

“My intention was to contrast the heated partisan rhetoric of a distinct minority of Christian leaders with the vast majority of Evangelical Christians – conservatives included – who believe that hate has no place in our politics.

“When you have pastors and television pundits who appear to explicitly coordinate with one political party; when you’re implying that your fellow Americans are traitors, terrorist sympathizers or akin to the devil himself; then I think you’re attempting to hijack the faith of those who follow you for your own personal or political ends,” wrote Obama.

The Illinois senator’s speech declaring the U.S. “no longer Christian” was met with little fanfare. But it has been getting some recent play.

television commercial that aired in South Dakota by a group calling itself the Coalition Against Anti-Christian Rhetoric juxtaposes the audio of Obama’s “no longer Christian” statement over images of the presidential candidate dressed in Somali garb and a picture of Obama with his hands rested below his waist while other politicians place their hands over their hearts during the Pledge of Allegiance.

“It’s time for people to take a stand against Barack Hussein Obama,” declares the voiceover on the commercial.

The Gateway Pundit blog took notice of Obama’s speech about the U.S. being a nation also for Muslims and non-believers.

“This won’t play well in the Bible Belt,” commented the blog in a recent posting.

Obama’s campaign has long utilized faith as a central theme. The candidate’s Christianity and his former membership in the controversial Trinity United Church of Christ have been much scrutinized.

His comment about the “Christian Right” echoed similar statements made by Merrill A. McPeak, Obama’s military adviser and national campaign co-chairman.

As WND reported, in a 2003 interview with The Oregonian newspaper, McPeak seemed to compare evangelical Christians to the terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah.

The Oregonian interviewer asked McPeak whether “there’s an element within Hamas, Hezbollah, that doesn’t want Israel to exist at all and always will be there?”

McPeak responded by comparing the two terror groups to “radical” Oregonians.

“There’s an element in Oregon, you know, that’s always going to be radical in some pernicious way, and likely to clothe it in religious garments, so it makes it harder to attack. So there’s craziness all over the place.”

Marxism Now Rules The Democrat Party, and Soon – The Country

Marxists Run The Left

Rocco DiPippo

Ideological descendants of Marx and Rousseau now lead the Democratic Party and they have turned it into a disloyal opposition to an increasingly accommodating GOP.

They have molded the Party into a force working stridently and unashamedly against a Commander in Chief during wartime. They have made it a den of treachery devoted to American defeat in Iraq. They preside over an institution advised and influenced by moneyed, non-governmental groups and individuals with unquestionably anti-U.S. agendas who help make the Party a pseudo-intellectual sinkhole filled with perverse, tried-and-failed ideas repulsive to the majority of Americans. Those ideas are shaped into agendas which are then forced on the public by an activist leftwing judiciary and by a major media and arts consortium shot through with utter disrespect, indeed contempt, for traditional American values, religions and institutions. 

The Democratic Party has devolved into a club for the illegitimately aggrieved, the self-absorbed, the self-hating and the perpetually angry. It is a sanctuary where solipsistic malcontents and their disjointed causes find refuge and support. It has long ceased being an earnest gathering of broad minds where man’s timeless problems are examined against the backdrop of the Constitution and solutions to them proposed based on the actual realities of the human condition…Barack Hussein Obama is in step with that radical element and with that leadership.

A Republic cannot survive such an ideology running the country.

It is plain that the Democrat Party is an official plank of Marxism in the country as the Modern Conservative points out:

 The Democratic Socialist Party of the United States of America

Some people think I’m too strident an anti-leftist. Some people say I’m wrong to place the Democrats on the continuum of the left, with their position on that continuum nothing more than a measure of the distance they are from socialism’s ideological provenance.

Sorry, but the Democrats are proving that belief right more and more each day:

House Democrats call for nationalization of refineries

House Democrats responded to President’s Bush’s call for Congress to lift the moratorium on offshore drilling. This was at an on-camera press conference fed back live.Among other things, the Democrats called for the government to own refineries so it could better control the flow of the oil supply. 

Democrats Skip Right Over Socialism; Land Squarely In The Land Of Karl And Hugo

Waters responded, in part, “And guess what this liberal would be all about. This liberal will be about socializing … uh, um. …”The congresswoman paused to collect her thoughts.”Would be about, basically, taking over, and the government running all of your companies. …”The oil executives responded, according to Fox News, by saying they’ve seen this before, in Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela. 

The Chavistas in our backyard

Here’s what Rep. Hinchey said:“Should the people of the United States own refineries? Maybe so. Frankly, I think that’s a good idea. Then we could control the amount of refined product much more capably that gets out on the market…”“So if there’s any seriousness about what some of our Republican colleagues are saying here in the House and elsewhere about improving the number of refineries, then maybe they’d be willing to have these refineries owned publicly, owned by the people of the United States, so that the people of the United States can determine how much of the product is refined and put out on the market.”“To me, that sounds like a very good idea.” 

On the set of a TV show once, I was sitting with a bunch of other low-level grunts awaiting activation. We were discussing politics and I mentioned something about communism being bad. One of the others muttered sarcastically, “yeah, God forbid the PEOPLE should have any power.”

The left really believes that crap. They really believe that people have power in communist countries. Which is why what Hinchey said is so scary….because people might buy it. Some, at least, might buy the lie that if the government nationalizes the oil industry, THEY would be a part owner.

 

This is the road to socialism. From there, it’s just a jog to totalitarian communism, and we know what that means: millions dead, and millions living in misery and oppression.

The left has taken over the Democrats, and the Democrats are drunk with the prospect of power. The mask is falling, people.

 

For your further edification, here is more news on the oil front:

Dems to Bush: Drop dead on oil drilling

House Democrats responded to President Bush’s proposal to end the moratorium on drilling for oil offshore as well as in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge by telling the president to drop dead, although they used a lot more words to make the same point.

The Democrats’ main argument was that the oil industry is already in possession of 68 million acres of oil leases and that Big Oil should drill away on those before they come around asking the federal government for any more land or ocean floor. 

Obama and The Don’t Drill Democrats To America: Don’t Drive. Just Shut Up and Sweat In Your Dark House.

When Barack Obama told a Pennsylvania audience this past weekend that “We can’t drill our way out of this,” he was repeating the same line that Nancy Pelosi used days earlier and that Harry Reid used on Wednesday.The Big Three Democrats are thus all agreed that their party has given up on bringing down the cost of oil and thus the cost of gas at the pump. 

McCain calls for building 45 new nuclear reactors

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) – Sen. John McCain called Wednesday for the construction of 45 new nuclear reactors by 2030 and pledged $2 billion a year in federal funds “to make clean coal a reality,” measures designed to reduce dependence on foreign oil.In a second straight day of campaigning devoted to the energy issue, the Republican presidential nominee-in-waiting also said the only time Democratic rival Barack Obama voted for a tax cut was for a “break for the oil companies.” 

Obama’s Fantasy Islands

In the course of a single speech Obama asserted that offshore oil exploration would –in the very best scenario– take five years to drive down the cost of gas 3 or 4 cents, but that an investment of 250 billion dollars five years ago would have produced an engine that didn’t require fossil fuels.Obama asserted that we could move to 40 MPG fuel standards for cars, and at another point asserted that the technology existed for 100 MPG cars, even as he asserted that exploration on the outer continental shelf and Alaska would cause permanent environmental damage.
 

One of our two main parties is not particularly an American party. It is an adjunct of the international left. And they’re trying to bring it here to you.

No Free Speech For Those Who Preach

Were you aware that in the United States of America, you are required to obtain a “Verbal Permit” before you are allowed to speak or preach on a public street, sidewalk, or – in front of the LIBERTY BELL?

Now I can understand the need for ‘free speech areas’, or designated locations for large protests that would otherwise disrupt the liberty of other countrymen from conducting their normal course of business or travel – but to restrict a single person from preaching or speaking in public is something we see in socialist and communist tyrannies – not in the United States of America.

But this is becoming commonplace now, in the new normal for a nation that has abandoned liberty for the religion of not offending, and being controlled by the state.

Man fined for preaching near Liberty Bell
Judge finds street evangelist guilty of ‘interfering’

© 2008 WorldNetDaily

 

A man arrested for preaching on a public sidewalk too close to the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia has been declared guilty of violating federal law. He was fined over $400 and put on probation, told not to go in Independence National Historical Park – or on its surrounding sidewalks – for a year.

On October 7, 2007, Michael A. Marcavage, director of the evangelistic organization Repent America, stood on the sidewalk outside the Liberty Bell Center, on the western edge of Independence Historical Park, preaching a message against abortion and declaring that “we need to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ” to a crowd waiting to enter the park.

“This is where we have been on a number of other occasions,” Marcavage told WND. “This time we were ministering to people waiting in line to see the Liberty Bell, speaking on the message written on the Bell, which reads, ‘Proclaim liberty throughout all the land.'”

Marcavage was then confronted by a National Park Service ranger, who demanded he move to a “free speech zone,” some distance from the entrance, where he could continue preaching under the permission of a “verbal permit.”

 

Marcavage refused to move and refused to accept a verbal permit, claiming the 1st Amendment protected his right to speak in public.

He was then arrested, taken away and charged with violating the terms of the permit that he had refused to accept. Marcavage’s arrest, seen afterward on YouTube, can be viewed below.

On Friday, in the case of United States of America vs. Michael A Marcavage, U.S. Magistrate Judge Arnold Rapoport found the preacher guilty of violating the terms of a verbal permit and “interfering with agency functions.”

After the arrest Marcavage posted his thoughts on a free speech blog, stating, “If they shut down our ability to speak to the people, they shut down the Gospel; they shut down any message.”

The blog, however, noted that the Liberty Bell Center’s establishment of a “free speech zone” is routine in cities and college campuses when officials want to maintain a tight control over potentially troublesome events. The blog cited a 2007 study by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, which found 259 of 346 colleges studied maintained such free speech restrictions.

In the aftermath of 9/11 government officials established a free speech zone near the Liberty Bell Center, where, according to government statistics, more than 100,000 protesters demonstrate each year.

In United States vs. Michael A. Marcavage, Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Goldberg stood on the practice of government-created speech zones, stating in court that “nowhere does the law say that the government cannot regulate speech on a sidewalk used by the public.”

Four years ago, Marcavage made headlines for being arrested as a member of the “Philadelphia 11,” a group that preached on sidewalks during a homosexual rally in downtown Philadelphia. The group was charged under Pennsylvania’s hate crime laws, though the charges were later dropped.

 

 

Marcavage’s Repent America responded in a press release that it will appeal this latest arrest and court decision and that it “will be challenging these unconstitutional restrictions by filing for an injunction in federal court.”

Congress: “Do Not Drill for Oil, Mine for Coal, or Build a Pipeline for Natural Gas.

Because when they knew and recognized Him as God, they did not honor and glorify Him as God or give Him thanks. But instead they became futile and godless in their thinking [with vain imaginings, foolish reasoning, and stupid speculations] and their senseless minds were darkened.

Claiming to be wise, they became fools, [professing to be smart, they made morons of themselves].

And by them the glory and majesty and excellence of the immortal God were exchanged for and represented by images, resembling mortal man and birds and beasts and reptiles.

Because they exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, Who is blessed forever! Amen  – Romans 1:21-25

This passage of scripture aptly describes the current cultural nonsense of worshipping the earth among so many Americans and professing Christians, who have had their wisdom replaced with idiocy, and exchanged truth for a lie that now threatens to impoverish and enslave a once mighty economic Superpower to the ash heap of history.

In the mad zeal to “save the creation” from evil Americans who live their lives by driving cars and working in industry that supplies energy, we have sealed our fate to misery.  $4.00 a gallon gasoline and rising is not enough to slow the juggernaut of the eco-marxists and environmentalists from influencing Congress to take even further repressive actions that will make gas prices soar to levels not even being whispered about yet.

The Natural Resources Defense Council thwarted the ConocoPhillips refinery in Roxana, Illinois from expanding.  To put it in the terms Alan Caruba from the Canadian Free Press: “No Drilling. No New Refineries. Get a Horse!”

I keep wondering how long it will take Americans to connect the dots and figure out why the most powerful economy the world has ever seen cannot manage to drill for oil in its own backyard and then get it refined nearby.

The news on June 10, if anyone was paying attention, was about the way the Natural Resources Defense Council and other environmental groups were able to thwart the plans of ConocoPhillips to expand its refinery in Roxana, Illinois. An appeal to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency was upheld because, said the EPA, its air permit, previously granted, just did not meet all the excruciating requirements involved.

For the record, ConocoPhillips was and is prepared to invest an estimated $1 billion to add a second coker, otherwise known as a crude oil processor. The company wants to expand in order to process Canadian tar sands oil. These days it refines approximately 306,000 barrels of oil per day to produce gasoline, jet fuel, diesel, asphalt and other products.”

This explains in part why ExxonMobil has just announced it will sell off its gas stations because the real money is made “upstream” as they say in the oil industry. The profits from the “downstream”, in this case at the pump, are so small as to be a drag on earnings.

All those members of Congress that want to punish the oil companies for making aprofit should check the balance sheet. From 2003 to 2007, ExxonMobil paid taxes (in all forms) in the amount of $64.7 billion. This actually exceeded its U.S. earnings by more than $19 billion! You do the math. Exploration, discovery, and drilling are where the money is. Wisely, this company has diversified into chemicals and a variety of petroleum related products.

Meanwhile, the only thing that the Greens are pumping is more hot air about global warming. According to the Sierra Club, “climate change is decimating many species” and pushing Congress to pass the Global Warming Wildlife Survival Act. Another name for it might as well be the “Do Not Drill for Oil, Mine for Coal, and Build a Pipeline for Natural Gas Act.” The world is not running out of polar bears, but Americans who have to pay $4 plus for a gallon of gasoline are beginning—at last—to run out of patience.

Over at Friends of the Earth, they are very annoyed that America’s high school students studying civics might read a new textbook that raises questions about global warming and/or climate change, based on real science, not the lies they and other Greens have been putting out for decades. FOE is currently flogging something they call “climate equity.” According to them, “The next President must acknowledge that the U.S. has contributed more global warming pollution to our atmosphere than any other nation.”

Oh yeah? What about those coal-fired plants that China can’t build fast enough to provide electricity? Or comparable efforts in India to meet the needs of a growing economy? In the end, the Greens are utterly opposed to any development, i.e., modernization, anywhere and they don’t care how many lies they have to tell.

Actually, they don’t have to worry that much. The next President will either be a Democrat who wants to further destroy what’s left of the oil industry in America or a Republican who believes global warming is real.

The Greens here in America don’t want you to drive your car, your truck, your tractor or that big Harley-Davidson hog. They don’t want any oil company to drill for oil anywhere on or offshore of America. They don’t want any new refineries built.

In short, get a horse!

Marxists and Communists have seized this tool and are using it to strip America of her wealth, common sense and prosperity by imposing false guilt among the people to ‘save the earth’ by selling their heritage and birthrights to an irrational and bogus fear that somehow, America is destroying the planet.

Even Southern Baptists have bought into the heresy of earth worship.  And now Congress is considering the ‘Global Warming Wildlife Survival Act’, which coming on the heels of declaring the polar bear ‘threatened‘ which takes any arctic oil exploration or drilling off the table, should take all oil, coal and natural gas production out of America altogether.  This will place us in absolute dependence upon hostile Middle Eastern nations for energy, and there is no doubt that they  can and will use that as a weapon against us.

The liberal Left would like nothing better than to see no oil, coal or gas being produced in the United States, and for the Federal Government to nationalize the oil and energy industry the way they are talking about taking over healthcare.

This should frighten every liberty-loving and common sense American to their core.  But alas, class envy has wrought it’s poison well throughout the country – and a willingly duped populace is happy to hate the wealthy and the industries that have supplied the nation with cheap energy for decades, because they have bought into the Satanic lie that the planet is dying because Americans live a modern life.

America will be relegated to transport by horse and cart, light by candles and campfires themeselves may be all we have to warm our homes in the coming Winters if the idiocy of these monstrous ideas in Congress are passed into law.

Clearly, the government creates more misery and problems when it interferes and regulates the free market.

Just look at the idiocy of the Congress deciding what kind of lightbulbs we have to have:

This idiocy is all by design of course.  It is much easier to control a dependent people than a free people.  And when a behemoth government senses an angry and restless people because of their misguided and deliberately harmful policies, they will take away their comforts and again cause the populace to roll over and accept whatever parcels of sustenance and liberty it is willing to distribute.

In short, America is comfortable with slavery and accepts idiotic and harmful policies because we are a nation bereft of wisdom.

Having tossed God out of the country – we have traded wisdom for folly, and are too busy worshipping the creation to notice that the tyranny of men has enslaved us.

Biblical message now criminalized – Penalties created for those who criticize homosexuality

It’s amazing that the day that the Supreme Court decides that Jihad Terrorists who hate the United States have Constitutional Rights to use our court system against us, new laws are being enforced to STRIP Americans of their Constitutional Right of both Free Exercise of religion, and the abolition of our right to Free Speech.

All in the name of ‘tolerance’.

Watch as Christians knuckle under this tyrannical oppression against them as they have all the rest of the abominations that plague our land.  After all, according to most – all that matters is that Jesus Loves, regardless whether or not sin is being imposed on His flock.

Biblical message now criminalized
Penalties created for those who criticize homosexuality outside church walls

By Bob Unruh
© 2008 WorldNetDaily

 

A new Colorado law is helping homosexual activists achieve their goal of forcing Christians to teach biblical condemnation of homosexuality only behind the closed doors of their sanctuaries.

The as-yet untested state law promotes sexual identity “perception” to the level of skin color under state discrimination laws.

Some opponents are calling it a “bona fide censorship law,” and top analysts for Focus on the Family, the Christian publishing and broadcast powerhouse, are expressing concern over the “mischief” they expect to follow the signing by Gov. Bill Ritter.

 


Bill Ritter

 

As WND reported, Ritter, a Democrat, struck gender-specific restrooms and locker rooms statewide when he signed the plan into law in May.

The law makes it illegal to deny a person access to public accommodations, including restrooms and locker rooms, based on gender identity or the “perception” of gender identity.

“Who would have believed that the Colorado state legislature and its governor would have made it fully legal for men to enter and use women’s restrooms and locker-room facilities without notice or explanation?” said James Dobson, founder of Focus.

“Henceforth, every woman and little girl will have to fear that a predator, bisexual, cross-dresser or even a homosexual or heterosexual male might walk in and relieve himself in their presence,” Dobson said.

“Homosexuality should be re-criminalized in Colorado,” it states.

But now an analyst for Focus, Bruce Hausknecht, has told WND there are other, significant, potential ramifications hidden in the fine print of the new law.

The law provides an exemption allowing religious groups to continue teaching, inside their doors, the Bible’s condemnation of homosexuality. But the exemption itself is ultimately harmful to the church, Hausknecht contends.

“It tends to marginalize the church,” he said. “They’ll say, ‘It’s just a church.’ It will allow gay activists to continue to marginalize Christians. They’ll say, ‘Keep it within your four walls. That’s all.'”

But there’s further possible mischief that can result from a ban on discrimination based on sexual orientation or “perception” when deciding “full and equal enjoyment of facilities, accommodations” and other factors, he said.

Religious publishers, he acknowledged, could be accused under the law for publishing biblical condemnation of homosexuality. Colorado Springs, where Focus in located, also is home to the huge Christian publishing operations of NavPress and the International Bible Society.

“There are those who simply by publishing Christian materials could find themselves charged with a violation of this statute,” he said.

A spokesman for Ritter did not respond to a WND request for comment.

The actual impact of the new ban on people responsible for “public accommodations” expressing beliefs that do not support homosexuality is unclear at this point, largely because charges haven’t been brought and challenges weighed regarding the law and its potential impact on First Amendment guarantees of freedom exercise of religion.

However, Hausknecht warned there is “danger” in those waters for any church that provides any service to its community.

It is possible the law’s anti-“discrimination” demands could be triggered when outside groups come in to use a church meeting room, auditorium or recreation facility. For the safety of the churches, perhaps outsiders will have to sign a document stating agreement with the church’s religious beliefs before being allowed in, he said.

The targets of complaints likely won’t be churches themselves, but more likely church schools, programs that offer services to communities and the like, critics of the law said.

“The intent of the homosexual activists who put this law in [was to] marginalize the church, keep it inside the sanctuary,” Hausknecht said.

Worse yet is that many small or medium-size churches will have to go out of their way, including halting programs, to avoid a potential conflict, because they don’t have the resources to wage a war over their beliefs, he added.

“It’s a lot easier to avoid the conflict than incur the costs of fighting,” he said.

Dobson earlier had nothing but criticism for Colorado’s elected officials.

“This is your government in action. It represents a payback to Tim Gill and two other billionaires who have essentially ‘bought’ state legislators with enormous campaign contributions. Coloradans deserve better!” Dobson said.

“And by the way, because of the way this bill is written, it is not subject to the initiative process. There is no recourse,” Dobson said.

 

 

Pastor Bob Enyart, a Denver-area activist on Christian issues, agreed with Focus’s concerns over what appears to be a newly minted state discrimination against Christian beliefs. But he went further.

“WND reported on Canada banning opposition to homosexuality; likewise, Colorado’s SB200 has ‘forbidden’ much publishing of Christian teaching on homosexuality, cohabitation, etc.,” he said.

“This censorship aspect of the law has been utterly ignored,” he said.

“The law exempts churches, but that’s not good, that’s an insult. I.E., bigotry is allowed only in churches. Whereas every other place of public accommodation including bookstores, retail & wholesale businesses, etc. cannot sell or even ‘give away’ anything that would advocate discrimination [against] gay adoption, homosexual marriage, etc.,” Enyart said.

He cited one part of the new law:

Section 8. 24-34-701. Publishing of discriminative matter forbidden. No person, being the owner, lessee, proprietor, manager, superintendent, agent, or employee of any place of public accommodation… shall publish, issue, circulate, send, distribute, give away, or display in any way, manner, or shape or by any means or method, except as provided in this section, any communication, paper, poster, folder, manuscript, book, pamphlet, writing, print, letter, notice, or advertisement of any kind, nature, or description THAT is intended or calculated to discriminate or actually discriminates against… SEXUAL ORIENTATION, marital status… in the matter of furnishing or neglecting or refusing to furnish to them or any one of them any lodging, housing, schooling, or tuition or any accommodation, right [marriage], privilege [adoption], advantage, or convenience… on account of… SEXUAL ORIENTATION, marital status… [which] is unwelcome or objectionable or not acceptable, desired, or solicited.”

The Old Testament condemns homosexuality as an “abomination,” Enyart told WND. The New Testament includes a reference in 1st Timothy calling for the use of laws against crimes such as murder and homosexuality.

“There are free speech rights to condemn cohabitation, homosexuality, state that homosexuals should not marry, should not adopt children,” Enyart said. “It’s now illegal in Colorado for anyone involved in a facility or business of public accommodation to give any communication that would advocate discrimination based on marital status or sexual orientation.”

He said many people simply choose not to believe what’s happening.

“I have a hard time believing [it myself],” said Enyart.

He said he expects the law to be only “lightly” enforced until “it just becomes an entrenched part of our legal framework. They’re not going to go out and arrest somebody for selling a Bible at Barnes and Noble.”

But then in a few years, watch out, he said.

Enyart has printed a document he hands out that says, “This Anti-homosexual Flyer is Illegal in Colorado.” It condemns the promotion of homosexuality in no uncertain terms.

Messiah Obama’s Disciples: America is Evil, and Must Be Remade In Marxs’ Image

Obama: ‘our individual salvation depends on our collective salvation. …’ 

The Gospel According to Marxist Revolutionaries:

“Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. It is the opium of the people.” – Karl Marx 

“And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations”. – Barrack Hussein Obama

“We need to take faith seriously not simply to block the religious right but to engage all persons of faith in the larger project of American renewal.” – Barack Obama; The Audacity of Hope; p. 216

Barack Hussein Obama, is a Marxist.   As a Saul Alinsky proselyte – Obama holds to the doctrines of Collectivism, the Marx ideology that preaches ‘From each according to his ability TO each according to their need”, and Black Liberation Theology – a New Testament blend of militant old school Malcolm X racism and feel-good red letter Christianity.  Together combined to create a New Christian Left faith, that has bewitched Americans with pronouncements of miracles that will be achieved with his election as president:

“I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment — this was the time –

Obama envisions a Central Planning Church of all-powerful Politburo Priests to redistribute wealth, life and death.  Messiah Obama began preaching this old doctrine with a modern neoLeft twist in liturgy in what will result is the same kind of Soviet tyranny visited upon the Russian peoples here in America.  And like the Soviet system, there are already ‘dissidents’ like myself, of the wannabe Statists that are being targeted for future action.  Whites in America and those who are independently wealthy might want to start looking for a new country to flee to before the purges begin.

Perhaps Russia will take in Conservative political refugees from America in the future.

Of course, it is not just Obama himself that frightens any true liberty-loving American that has taken a close look at what he says and believes.  The worshipping throngs of anti-American Leftists, Anarchists, Jihadists, Academia, the Mainstream media, the college youth, have set Obama on the Ass and are parading him around the Shining City on a Hill, waving palm fronds in absolute hysterical worship of a Man that preaches God and Morality demand Socialism and that feeding the poor and housing the homeless require retribution against “middleclassness” and Whites.

To speak against Obama’s ideas is blasphemy.  To question or point our anything he says is racism.  His middle name is off limits and cannot be uttered.  The statements of his wife, are forbidden to be analyzed. We may not discuss Obama’s mother, father, his 20 years in Jeremiah Wright’s church, his criminal and terrorist associates, his lack of patriotism, what he wrote in his books, what he said yesterday.  Not even the Pope in Rome is afforded such insulation.  But as Obama becomes the Vicar of Marx, I suppose looking at the histories of Communist and Socialist nations – blasphemy against the State and it’s Annointed is unwise.

While Obama himself is clever enough not to ascribe the role of Savior to himself, he lets the worshipping hordes do that for him, and Obama does not dissuade such efforts, but feeds them with additional empowering words about hope and change.

Men’s news Daily took note of this phenomenon yesterday:

Adoration Of Candidate Borders On The Fanatically Frightening 

 

As the United States edges ever closer to tyranny with freedom dieing a little more each year with the passage of new laws, the handing down of judicial rulings, and the promulgation of executive orders, it is assumed by increasing numbers that it is the role of government to provide for all of our needs and to save us from our own worst tendencies irrespective of whether or not these are matters we want massive bureaucracies poking into our private lives about.  As bad as such intrusions are, the fear such a scenario provokes pales in comparison to the almost messianic mantel being bestowed upon Barack Obama, qualified (we are told) to hold the highest elected government office in the land for no other reason than that he happens to be Barack Obama.

…For example, posted on the April 1, 2008 Guardian is a column titled “Obama Is The Change That America Has Tried To Hide”, arguing that only one candidate offers the radical departure from the normal that the 21st century US needs for its own sake as well as the rest of the world.  In the piece, the reader finds accolades and platitudes as revolutionarily disturbing as anything from the time of the Bolshevik uprising and the Red Menace in terms of the new order this man’s disciples hope to impose upon society.

For example, the piece speaks of “a new country existing alongside the old”.  Few commentators will possess the fortitude to translate this phrase honestly, but what that means is essentially that the holy Barack should have the presidency bestowed upon him for no other reason than that he happens to be half Black.  The sentiment also implies that those daring to vote against him had better watch out when the riots start either after his victory or defeat.

…In other words, “No Whites Need Apply” when it comes to elected office….Whites having grown docile in light of pandering to agitating minorities out of a fear of being classified as “racist” or whatever other labels are invoked these days to keep the handouts flowing will no doubt exhibit the hesitancy to stand up for themselves that has come to categorize most of this ethnic extraction for the last 25 years or so.

it is one thing to believe that prolonged involvement in Iraq may not be in the best strategic interests of the United States.  However, one is advocating something far more subversive entirely when one calls for the abolition of the armed forces all together.

It may not just be the military the devotees of the sacred Barack might be out to abolish.  Walker writes, “Even if Obama becomes president, our country is in such ruin it may be beyond his power to lead us into rehabilitation.”  Such a sentiment is basically calling for the abolition of our constitutional system of government and its replacement with something more socialistic or Communistic in nature administered in the case by the Obama.

“If he is elected, however, we must as citizens of the planet insist on helping him do the best job that can be done; more, we must insist that he demand this of us.”

Such a phrase is an indication that the loyalty the person is invoking is not to the United States of America or even the God of the Bible but rather to the enemies of human liberty as those rallying under the banner of “the Planet” are not going to distinguish themselves from the Red Chinese, Russian Neo-Soviets, or radical Islamists.

Those who love this country might utter a similar invocation of “Lord, protect us from Obama and his followers “ as the movement that has popped up around this mere mortal seeks to imbue both him and the office he hopes to  acquire with power over our lives no human institution was meant to hold.

How is such a radical Leftist a hair’s breadth from the White House?  The American Thinker explains:

…given the political and ideological climate that exists today in America, the ascension of a leftist like Barack Obama into presidential politics makes perfect sense. Beliefs like domestic terrorist William Ayers’s and racist, anti-US preacher Jeremiah Wright’s are no longer met with utter scorn or a trip to behind the woodshed, but are embraced, promoted and defended by many Americans. Think MoveOn, International ANSWER, think hordes of young neo-communists and their indoctrinating, puppet-master Marx-spouting professors. 

Ideological descendants of Marx and Rousseau now lead the Democratic Party and they have turned it into a disloyal opposition to an increasingly accommodating GOP. They have molded the Party into a force working stridently and unashamedly against a Commander in Chief during wartime. They have made it a den of treachery devoted to American defeat in Iraq. They preside over an institution advised and influenced by moneyed, non-governmental groups and individuals with unquestionably anti-US agendas who help make the Party a pseudo-intellectual sinkhole filled with perverse, tried-and-failed ideas repulsive to the majority of Americans. Those ideas are shaped into agendas which are then forced on the public by an activist leftwing judiciary and by a major media and arts consortium shot through with utter disrespect, indeed contempt, for traditional American values, religions and institutions.

…So what does all of that have to do with the propulsion of Barack Obama to within a whisker of the Presidency? Everything. It could not have happened without the existence of a substantial, organized, internal anti-US Left and the approval and guidance of the Democratic leadership

…They tell us that due to Bush and his policies, our nation is an evil one, our nation is hated by the world, our nation is fractured into pieces, our nation is murdering innocents, our nation is the world’s biggest polluter, our nation is a den of racism, our nation is stingy, our citizens are impoverished, our economy has been destroyed.

…America now has serious doubts about itself. Its citizens have been pummeled with those terrible messages for so long now, that many of them believe them to be true. They are vulnerable to [Obama’s] sudden mantra of Hope and Change and Progress.

…a master psychological fisherman, Barack Obama, dangles the bait of salvation. As a highly experienced practitioner of Saul Alinsky’s radical arts, he is perfect for the job. Those who know Obama well, like Mike Kruglik, who helped train him in Alinsky’s methods would agree:
“He [Obama] was a natural, the undisputed master of agitation. . .  As with the panhandler, he could be aggressive and confrontational. With probing, sometimes personal questions, he would pinpoint the source of pain in their lives, tearing down their egos just enough before dangling a carrot of hope that they could make things better.”

 

 

It is truly audacious of the Democrats to entice us with their slick-tongued messiah, one who appears out of nowhere and graciously offers to scrape clean and sanitize the same plate of defeat he, his party and their assistants in the media served to America for nearly eight years in the middle of a war. 
We need to earnestly pray that God blesses us with a president we need, and not the president we deserve, and whom will set himself in opposition to everything we hold dear in Liberty.
