    Some say Bush said God told him to attack Iraq.

    Well that makes as much sense as Obama claiming God told him to tax the rich. Well, if you want to use his own words you could make a claim that Obama says that God, or Jesus specifically, said that we should tax the rich.

    Well, he did.

    During a prayer breakfast the other day he couldn't resist the urge to say exactly that.

    “But for me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus’ teaching that, ‘for unto whom much is given, much shall be required,’” he said.

    That principle, Obama said, also “mirrors the Islamic belief that those who’ve been blessed have an obligation to use those blessings to help others, or the Jewish doctrine of moderation and consideration for others.”

    Funny, even Fox News cut out the last part.

    It seems Allah has more pull on Obama than God because although they are one in the same Obama feels a responsibility, even an obligation, to take care of the poor according to strict Islamic laws.

    Fortunately this country is not ruled by a theocracy. This is not Saudi Arabia. This is America. We have free will in this country. Obama doesn't seem to think so. Any time a leader tries to force his own values upon the people of his country he becomes a dictator, not a leader. And the very fact he's attempting to enforce religious rules on us through government it seems he's leaning toward a theocracy, which goes against our constitution.

    Contrary to what Obama thinks, this is a free country. The only obligation this country has is to provide life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Happiness is not a guarantee. The ability to pursue it is guaranteed. Even the ability to pursue it is being taken away. Obama wants to decide who wins and who loses. These folks will get what those folks worked for.

    The problem with this president is once he gives us something he's going to expect something in return. Once we are dependent on government he can tell us how to live. Then we become Greece.

    And he also forgets the purpose of Jesus' teachings.

    To show that generosity cannot be forced, it must be willing.


    You must do good for the right reasons. You cannot be forced. Once you take free-will out of the equation you have remove compassion and charity, thus the purpose is lost. That is what the Romans expected of the people of Israel. "Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's."

    This is what escapes Obama.

    Unfortunately, Obama wouldn't be the first Christian that misinterpreted the Bible.

    That just proves another one of Jesus' teachings. Those who do not have the Holy Spirit in their hearts will not understand what he was saying.

    I guess Obama has joined the long list of false prophets.

    If I were God, I think I'd get pretty tired of petty politicians putting words in my mouth and/or misquoting me.

    Of course if I were God, I'd smite the shit out of about all of those politicians, so it's probably for the best that I'm not ...

    they mention him taking those passages 'painfully out of context', yet you can see the cuts in the clip, destroying any context there might have been.

    Before I pass judgement, I'd like to see the uncut version. anyone?

    So basically he reads the Bible the same way he reads the Constitution.

    At least he's consistent. :doubt:

    Generosity and helping others cannot be forced?

    How about forcing democracy down the throats of the Afgans and Iarqi?
    And I am sure all the troops were eager to go there and help the Iraqi.
    And all the US taxpayers are eager to pay for the wars.

    Don't tell me.

    Tell Obama.

    He's the one acting like Afghanistan is the good war.

    He's the one bombing Libyan tanks.

    He's the one using drones to assassinate terrorists rather than capturing them.
