    Obama: I Pushed Dodd-Frank And Health Care Reform Because Of Christ
    At National Prayer Breakfast, Obama grounds his controversial policies in the Bible. Tax hikes for rich “[coincide] with Jesus's teaching.”


    "And so when I talk about our financial institutions playing by the same rules as folks on Main Street, when I talk about making sure insurance companies aren’t discriminating against those who are already sick, or making sure that unscrupulous lenders aren’t taking advantage of the most vulnerable among us, I do so because I genuinely believe it will make the economy stronger for everybody. But I also do it because I know that far too many neighbors in our country have been hurt and treated unfairly over the last few years, and I believe in God’s command to 'love thy neighbor as thyself."
    "And when I decide to stand up for foreign aid, or prevent atrocities in places like Uganda, or take on issues like human trafficking, it’s not just about strengthening alliances, or promoting democratic values, or projecting American leadership around the world, although it does all those things and it will make us safer and more secure. It’s also about the biblical call to care for the least of these — for the poor; for those at the margins of our society.
    To answer the responsibility we’re given in Proverbs to 'Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute."

    Did any of you catch this blasphemy this morning? This man is truly beneath contempt! :mad: :mad: :mad:

    It made me so angry, this time I truly screamed at the TV ... and raised my blood pressure several notches.

    As someone wrote in the comments that followed ...

    God will not be mocked!

    He was in a foul mood because his handlers suggested he not bring his prayer mat.

    How is any of that blasphemy or mocking God?

    You might disagree with his interpretation of "Love thy neighbor as thyself" or feel that Jesus instructions for how we should treat people as individuals should not apply to the government, but nothing in either of the paragraphs posted amounts to blasphemy.

    Because the man intentionally took from the Bible passages that he knows little/nothing about and twisted them to fit his own agenda. He has no divine inspiration or aspiration for his progams and policies. He wants to end this country as it is known and will stoop to new lows to achive his goal...

    How do you know that he knows nothing about the Bible? You don't like the way he applies scripture. That doesn't make his statements blasphemous.


    But I know, only fundamentalists are really christians in a fundamentalist's worldview.

    To mock God is to pretend to love and serve Him when you are not a believer.

    This man is not the least bit sincere and uses scripture to serve his own ends.

    He truly disgusts me!

    FlaGator ...

    I have not studied the Bible, and do believe that you have.

    Would love to hear from you as well on this topic, if at all possible.
