Barack Obama Plays Politics at National Prayer Breakfast … Justifies His Taxing the Rich Because that is What Jesus Would Do
WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO OBAMA’S SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE?
Dear Barack Obama, there is only one Messiah, please do not believe your press clippings that you are the Obamamessiah. Trust me, you are hardly the “One” we have been waiting for.
Yesterday at the National Prayer Breakfast, President Barack Obama decided to make the event what all his events are … political. The One took the opportunity to justify his taxes on the rich because that is what Jesus would tax the rich. Really Mr. President. Just curious, what ever happened to separation of Church and State? Oh that’s right, you only use that when its convenient for you. What a shock that Obama would do the unthinkable and use a religious event for his partisan policies.
The rich should pay more not only because “I actually think that is going to make economic sense, but for me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus’s teaching that ‘for unto whom much is given, much shall be required,’” Obama said at the Washington Hilton, delivering remarks at an annual event that every president has attended since Dwight D. Eisenhower.
“We can all benefit from turning to our Creator, listening to him,” Obama said. “Avoiding phony religiosity. … This is especially important right now when we’re facing some big challenges as a nation.”
Obama infused his remarks on spirituality with a populist message of economic fairness, echoing rhetoric he unveiled in December in Osawatomie, Kan., and returned to in his State of the Union address last week. Without countering his Republican presidential opponents head on, Obama offered a contrast to Mitt Romney’s positions on class and wealth.
The Lonely Conservative has the VIDEO so no one can spin that he either did not say it, or that it was not meant to be political.
What else would we expect from a man who learned Christianity at a church whose pastor would rant, “God damn America”. Or as the Gateway Pundit says, “Barack Obama is his Bother’s keeper, except for his own brother George.” A President who at every chance attacks religion, now cloaks himself in it to justify taxing the rich. Really Barack, is that all you got out of the Bible?
Barack Obama talks about everyone else having to pay taxes, yet when it comes to giving of himself with charitable contributions, its a joke. Why all of a sudden has Obama tried to evoke religion into the political discourse? Interestingly enough, no where during his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast did he refer to any Christians he wanted to tax as clinging to their Bibles. Go figure.
As the Bible teaches us, beware of false prophets. The tax comments are shallow words coming from a man who is the most polarizing President ever! What would Jesus say about that.
