Diagnosing Obama’s religious confusion

by
July 15th, 2008

Barack Hussein Obama needs to straighten himself out. Growing up between Islamic teachings and socialist theories apparently has confused his concepts. We are not a Muslim nation, a Jewish nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, or a nation of nonbelievers as he stated in a speech in June 2006 to the liberal Christian group, Call to Renewal. I would classify him as a nonbeliever who pretends to be a Christian, similar to the National Socialist “German Christians” who used the Christian language to promote their Nazi ideology. The theology of liberation uses the same principle namely deceiving those who are weak in practicing a Christian way of life and therefore blind towards reality by hiding the true nature of its program.

Our nation is unique in human history. Based on the Christian faith of her people and leaders, and on the truth of the Holy Bible, Americans made it possible for people of all faiths to come here and practice it in freedom, something they could not do at home. Nobody forced them, neither then or today, to become Christians. It was the welcoming of strangers by warm-hearted Americans that made this nation great; not a government program. The presence of some Muslims or Buddhists and people with other religions in the United States does not change our history or tradition, nor does it transforms us into a Muslim, Buddhist, or any other mixture of nations. It is a ridiculous statement from the senator from Illinois. Not being a Christian, Obama talks nonsense — “a fruitcake interpretation of the Constitution,” as said correctly by Dr. James Dobson.

I must also correct him when he speaks of the “Christian Right,” a concept which logically assumes the existence of a “Christian Left”. There is no right or left in the Christian teachings. There is sin and the cleansing of sin. The Sermon on the Mount is directed at every last person in the world, including Obama. He doesn’t live up to the message. You either are a Christian or you are not; it depends on what you believe in and how you live accordingly. Obama’s “faith” has little to do with the teachings of Jesus and St. Paul. Going to church doesn’t make a person a Christian, especially if the pastor is a Communist and vibrates with hatred just like Obama’s pastor of twenty years does, Jeremiah Wright, who has also a record of being a Muslim.

Christians have not “hijacked faith to drive us apart” as Obama states. It is his immorality and the immorality of his Socialist fellow travelers’ political programs that, if applied, will destroy the rest of the moral infrastructure of this nation which is the principal factor in dividing the American people. Did he overlook the fact that Jesus was crucified because the government and religious establishment of the Jewish Nation did not like his moral teachings, and because the Roman governor was an appeaser whose own comfort came first? Jesus did not try to unite different views; He challenged the morality of the godless and their naïve followers.

Presidential candidate Obama wants to unite. Unity with people, institutions and nations which promote murder of other human beings is not possible. You can’t unite with what is wrong. The unity Obama’s speaks about is Marxist double-talk – unity for them means the prevailing of their own views. Obama uses the tactics typical for the theology of liberation. This “theology” decades ago has developed into a subversive Communist political action program. I have described the process in my recent article “Obama and the Theology of Liberation” (www.voncampe.com) It means in short in this case using the Christian language to fool the church goers and push them into his direction – a Socialist environment ending with a totalitarian United Nations world government financed by the United States and some dumb other Western governments.

He divides the Christians in two groups, the faithful whom he classifies as “radical right wing” and the superficial “peace, comfort, and security seeking” rest which he tries to get into his unity program which includes voting for him.

You can’t be a Christian when your personal and political moral platform includes mass murder. Obama thinks it is the right of a woman to have a defenseless human being inside her body cruelly killed for her own convenience. The Nazis had similar convictions and killed six million Jews and some ten millions of Germans and people of other nations. Islamic jihadists kill innocent men, women and children and delude themselves that it will get them into paradise sex. Obama voted against a bill to protect babies that survive abortion attempts and also believes that the Sermon on the Mount justifies his support for legal recognition of same-sex unions. Whoever votes him and his many brothers in arms into power makes him- or herself an accomplice in murder. Such a person is offending God and hostile to our Constitution. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th circuit defined a person protected by the Constitution in a 7:4 ruling as an “individual living member of the Homo sapiens, including the unborn human being during the entire embryonic and fetal ages from fertilization to full gestation.” It is not for nothing that Marxists, socialists and communists have formed a block to “support their favored presidential candidate,” Obama, and calling for a revolution against “the U.S oppressive regime.” WND broke the news about these stories. Wake up America!

The United States of America was overwhelmingly founded by European Christians. They founded a nation in which God was placed into the center of society. The constitutions and charters of the original 13 states began (and still do) with a reference of God. This reliance on Him was ultimately expressed by all subsequent states joining the Union including the one I currently live in. The Preamble of the state Constitution of Alabama states: “We the people of the state of Alabama invoking the favor and guidance of Almighty God, to ordain and establish the following Constitution.” There was no Allah (not identical with God) or Shiva, no Buddha, no unbeliever. Our Constitution is based on Christian truth as was the Declaration of Independence with the opening statement “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among them are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” This is the firm foundation on which this nation was built.on. Presidential candidate Obama wipes this truth off the table. It represents a denial of God. Furthermore it is not only an insult to our founding fathers but neglects the spirit and the letter of our Constitution, which he is supposed to uphold.

There is no other country in the world, with the exception perhaps of prosperous Switzerland, where the people were free to select their own way of life and to install a legal and social infrastructure which had room for people from every corner of the earth. Obama does not even respect the Christian teachings which made this nation. With it we became the richest nation on earth and look where we are heading for now – to be slaves of our creditors and energy providers who mostly are our enemies. Our soldiers fight and die for the people of two Islamic countries. In spite of it, Christians and Jews are being persecuted in many Islamic states which are guided by their religious and political intolerance.

In addition, America has a mission to make freedom available to all nations. No other nation has such a mission. But freedom without truth cannot last. Absolute truth must be at the heart of a free nation if freedom should prevail. And here today America falls short of the required. We have become a nation where indifference, greed, sex, comfort-seeking, lying and attacks on our Constitution become normal and where power-seeking liars who are out for themselves lead us in the wrong direction. This we cannot wipe off the table either, it has to be addressed and changed. Real change is the result of people changing and becoming different and not because of more money from the vote-seeking government establishment I haven’t heard Obama or McCain speaking about it.

Barack Hussein Obama’s real problems are not of a racial nature. They are only meant to cover up the ideological position. He would lead America into the wrong direction. He is not bringing any real change to our society but more immorality and prescribing un-American Marxist remedies by taking money from some people and giving it to others. This kind of help really is no help because it makes the people who receive it dependent on those who give it to them. It is more of a bribe. The unity Marxists want means “Do as I say.”

The global ideological war is about the role of God in human society. The battle field is morality, the battle line is the choice between truth and lies. There is no neutrality, it is either or. This choice is accessible to everybody everywhere, and for every nation. Liars are the enemies of freedom and of their nation. The call for Americans, citizens and legal residents, is to stop lying, stand up, fight for God’s absolute truth and create a sane nation under God. It must be the second American Revolution.
