Obama nurtures his faith away
from the spotlight

Associated Press, by Josh Lederman

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/19/2013 4:50:11 PM

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama is not an overtly religious man. He and his family rarely attend church, and he almost never elaborates in public about his own relationship to his Christian faith. But away from the public eye, advisers say, the president has carefully nurtured a sense of spirituality that has served as a grounding mechanism during turbulent times, when the obstacles to governing a deeply divided nation seem nearly insurmountable. Every year on Aug. 4, the president´s birthday, Obama convenes a group of pastors by phone to receive their prayers for him for the year to come. During the

I just wonder how many times a day he washes his feet, turns sharply to the east and whips out the old prayer rug.

Does he think the pastors will pray him into heaven? He "receives" prayers - not he prays! I don´t personally think he even knows God - Jesus Christ or the Holy Spirit. If so, we would know it by his actions - God´s fruits would be self-evident.

Obama praises the abortion clinics and then thanks God for them! One day he will find out the difference. God does not bless sin, but he does bless the sinner when he repents!

Food for thought for a President who needs help! Pray for him, that he listens to that inner voice that cries "repentance"!

In a pig’s eye “…his Christian faith.” Obama’s a Muslim. Just ask George Stephanopoulos, who awkwardly tried to unconvincingly convince Obama that Obama´s a Christian. George Stephanopoulos failed miserably.

Any resemblance between Obama and the truth is purely coincidental.

I haven´t forgotten his "My Muslim faith" to George Stephanopoulos, poster #13, nor his "The most beautiful sound in the world is the "morning call to faith." Which he learned as a boy attending a private school as Barry Soetero, the Indonesian son of a Muslim.

To reinforce this, remember when he was asked on the campaign trail, he thought there are 57 (the number of Muslim) states.

#5- you do realize that there is no record of Ronald Reagan ever going to a church service the entire time he was President. The reason he gave when asked why was that too much security would be needed. I´m sure your statement applies to him also, so RR could not be considered a Christian either?

The genuineness of his salvation is between him and the Almighty, but he is portrayed and certainly acts like he considers himself above it all as if he is God.

I´m still waiting for all those lofty predictions he made as a candidate to come to pass.....

I know there´s a God who knows my name, and its NOT BHO, although I´m sure his pals in the business of tampering into our private lives probably has something which he could put his finger on to use against the citizenry to keep them in line

The information provided in this piece, if accurate, indicates that the President relies very much on what others tell him about God and his word, rather than searching the Scriptures to find what God reveals about himself in his word.

All of us need to be like the Bereans and search the Scriptures daily to see whether the things that are told to us about them are so. (Acts 17:11)

I heard this recently. It´s from 2005, but it is as true today as then. It´s entitled "Truth is Fallen in the Streets" taken from Isaiah 59:14,15.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4t3uPHo5_Sk

You may want to move past the singing and prayer, that´s up to you, but the message about what is happening in America is right on target. Truth is indeed fallen in the streets. The speaker uses comments from Moynihan and relates a story about Bear Bryant that was told by John McCain, but don´t let that throw you off the truth of the message.

Sorry for second post, but I was addressed with a question. #28- it was RONALD REAGAN who said he did not go to church because of security, not Obama. I think that was clear in my first post. Reagan never went to church his entire 8 years as President.

If I had a hat on my head, I´d tear it off and throw it on the ground. This hardship is what damn near every president has to go through, which is dealing with the other part in congress. If he´d been more respectful during his first two years, he´d be getting a lot more cooperation now. Heck, if he were more respectful now instead of calling them arsonists, he´d get more cooperation. Nothing like trashing people 24/7 and then going "woe is me." Good grief.

Barack Obama isn´t a Christian. He belongs to a hate cult that openly promotes hatred of white people, capitalism and America. You don´t spend twenty years listening to Jeremiah Wright´s poisonous vitriol without embracing or endorsing those very same ideas.

Christ´s message was never, ever "hate whitey and God DAMN America!"

Pretend all you want that this man is a normal, average, practicing Christian. All available evidence points to the opposite conclusion.

Obama once tried to insert Christ´s words into a political speech but brought up the verse about turning stones into bread. I thought this was absolutely chilling because Satan uttered the words about turning stones into bread. The fact that he could confuse Satan´s words with Christ´s is frightening.

Re #23, Ronald and Nancy Reagan regularly attended the Bel Air Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles.

I knew their minister, Dr. Donn Moomaw (who gave the invocation at President Reagan´s inauguration) and he told me of their regular attendance at the church when they were in California and after he left office. Until she became too frail to do so, Mrs. Reagan continued to attend after President Reagan´s death.

It´s a good idea to get your facts straight before you start firing.

"Has carefully nurtured a sense of spirituality"?...There have been over 56,733,000 abortions in The United States since the wicked Supreme Court Decision of Roe v Wade in January, 1973. So what did Obama have to say to the assembled mass murderers of Planned Parenthood at their National Conference in Washington, D.C. on April 26, 2013?..."Thank you, Planned Parenthood, God bless you."

He was in DC for 8 years as President and never attended church there. Rarely he went to the ranch in CA, but most Sundays was in the White House or at Camp David. He was asked a number of times why he did not attend church while President and always gave the security answer. I know he went to Bel Air Pres when in LA, but was not a churchgoer while President. Those are facts you can look up.

And #23´s, #46´s, point is?

The Obamas make a great point of going to church when it is photo op time. The rest of the time, nada.

What exactly is the point of all this business about Ronald Reagan? Books have been written about his spirituality, dating back to his mother and his childhood.

The only "church history" we have on Obama is Jeremiah Wright´s church, the big predominantly black church in Chicago that his mentors advised him to attend for political credibility and contacts. Is that #23-46´s idea of spirituality?

There are at least a dozen reasons proving Obama is not a Christian and the only people who might think he is Christian, are non-Christians, those who have no clue what Christianity it.

But... the most obvious proofs are his disregard for life. This is seen by his support of unlimited abortion and the legislation he vetoed that would have given doctors and nurses the liberty to treat a child that survived an abortion. He forced healthcare workers to let them die. He even said that he would be willing to have his own grandchildren killed rather than have his daughters saddled with an unwanted pregnancy. That comes from the pits of hell.
The second is his philosophy that government should have ultimate power and the final authority over humans, not God. His view of government is nothing more that man trying to be God (like Satan), making people dependant on government. Government cannot steal freedom and liberty from the individual without being ungodly. It cannot set moral standards different than God´s and be right for the people.
Third is his disrespect for Family. Family is an institution created by God to provide a structured environment with a father and mother to procreate and raise children. Any other form of family is perverse and ungodly. Add to that Obama´s policies that are destroying the family by rewarding broken homes and unwed parents while punishing functioning homes.
Forth is his openly hatred or Christianity claiming Christians are racist bigots, and the cause of hatred between races. Christianity stands for moral standards, social stability and personal responsibility. Obama stands for none of these things. He is a liar, prideful, arrogant, divider, secularist and the only form of "Christianity" he accepts is that of Jeremiah Wright which preached Black Liberation Theology, pitting Blacks against Whites, hoping to produce a "collective salvation". That is not Christian.

Emesis without ipecac.

Zippy might have some type of faith, but it´s not faith in the God of Hebrew or Christian scripture, which would require for him to worship something outside himself, something holy. If he´s not still Islamic (his childhood religion) he´s certainly an Islamophile, judging by everything he´s done or said. And as I said above, reflecting on this hollow man´s alleged faith is sickening. Who but a lockstep toady would even think it?

The souther duffer does have a point. Attendance at church does not necessarily indicate faith or obendience or understanding. Just ask Ted Kennedy, the daily Communicant. Or ask Nancy "the Word" Pelosi. Or Big Bible Bill Clinton.
I´m not questioning Mr. Obama´s spirituality or faith. We will know them by their deeds, or so I´ve been told.

Your problem gagolfer, besides being a site pest is you not telling the entire story (typical liberal)of Reagan and going to church. You are correct, he did say he didn´t want to interrupt others worship with all of his security. The difference between him and the muslim occupier is that he made this known immediately and didn´t make a big show of searching for the "right church".
Further proof liberalism is a mental disease.

Nothing is impossible with God. I think those of us who are Christian should pray for Obama and those around him. He is a child of God whether he believes it or not. He needs Christians to pray for him. I pray that Nancy Pelosi, Kathleen Sevelius, Joe Biden and John Kerry turn away from abortion and back to their Catholic faith.

Before continuing to berate me let me point out that in no way was I comparing the faith of Obama with that of RR. Frankly that is God´s business not mine and I will worry about The Lord and myself and not anyone else´s faith.

I simply was replying to #5 who had posted that to be a Christian one has to regularly attend public religious services and therefore Obama could not be a Christian. I asked since RR did not do so either as President could he be a Christian. I made no judgement that Obama was or was not a Christian or a Muslim or that RR was not a man of faith. Not my business. If I had to answer that question I would say RR was a Christian man of faith and I really have no idea what Obama is (nor does anyone here for that matter). I just gave a fact to one poster and the place goes crazy, obviously not really reading what I said to begin with. I loved RR and voted for him twice, btw, but a fact is a fact.

#62 - you´re a far better man than I to pray for that lot of scum. Moreover, they try to glorify themselves as they fight for the right to murder the most defenseless of all, as well as being wantonly dangerous to the entire inhabitants of the earth. Good thing you pray for them as I wish their demise (I´ll settle for their impotence). And they have no faith - its a charade to garner votes from the ignorant.

Show me your baptismal certificate and I´ll believe you are a Christian.

Franklin Graham asked the president when exactly he had become a Christian and Obama replied that when he moved to Chicago he was advised that he had to join a church if he was going to be part of the black community. That is it. That is how he supposedly became a Christian, but merely attending a titular Christian church does not make you a member of the Body of Christ. When you convert as an adult your public expression of accepting the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ is when you undergo baptism and are formerly welcomed into the Church. So when did Obama ever do that?

Sorry #64, good try but it doesn´t fly. I also do not agree with #5, see Matthew 6:5.

However now you are re-writing history.

If you had made your original reply to #5 and then followed it with what you just posted I might understand. However you attacked RR again in your next post #46, and that is a fact YOU can look up. Man up, you posted it, live with it.

Many great comments.

#52, sad to say, there will be many who CONTINUE to be fooled by this bamboozler. The Lo-fos are still among us.

BO ought to read Psalm 139 while he´s trying to get some spirituality. He might gain some understanding and wisdom, ...and respect for life.

But, above all, he ought to review Exodus 20 and observe, beginning with the First Commandment: YHWH speaking, "I am the LORD your God... you shall have no other gods before Me... you shall make no carved images, or images of any kind..." dump those "HOPE" posters for starters.

He´s a Sunni.
So is the Muslim Brotherhood.
Most (maybe all) the Middle East conflicts are, to some degree, Sunni-Shi´ite conflicts. Not reported and not emphasized in our press, maybe not in any non-Islamic press.
I don´t have enough information to verify this, but I suspect that Obama takes the Sunni side in any Sunni-Shi´ite Middle East conflict. I know Morsi is Sunni and Assad associates with a branch of Shi´ite, for example.

“… turbulent times … a deeply divided nation ...” -- Be still, my aching tuchus!

Lederman must live deep in the pockets of these un-named “advisers” he cites – or else he’s simply dumber than dirt. Either way, the AP’s effrontery in publishing this piece of ordure is quite simply breathtaking.

Is there a single sapient being anywhere in our land who doesn’t know that the turbulence of our times is largely of the Current Occupant’s own making, and that the deepness of our national divide owes more to him than to anyone or anything else?

In a less cynical age, little Barry Soetoro would be standing in the well of the court, his parents’ blood on his hands, with his lawyers pleading for mercy for the poor orphaned boy.

It´s interesting that no mention was made of Obama´s "God bless Planned Parenthood" remarks earlier this year.

"As long as we´ve got to fight to make sure women have access to quality, affordable health care, and as long as we´ve got to fight to protect a woman´s right to make her own choices about her own health, I want you to know that you´ve also got a president who´s going to be right there with you, fighting every step of the way," said Obama. "Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you." The Weekly Standard, April 26, 2013

Or his disregard for religious beliefs re the HHS mandates.

The Obama administration said Friday that it will not provide broad exceptions to the contraception mandate in its signature healthcare law.

The Health and Human Services Department rejected calls to let any employer opt out of the mandate based on religious objections to contraception. But the department took new steps to remove religiously affiliated employers from the process of paying for their employees´ contraception coverage. The Hill, February 1, 2013


Or - denying Catholic priests access during the shutdown.

The U.S. military has furloughed as many as 50 Catholic chaplains due to the partial suspension of government services, banning them from celebrating weekend Mass. At least one chaplain was told that if he engaged in any ministry activity, he would be subjected to disciplinary action. Fox News, October 44, 2013

Or - reports of DOD classifying Christians as terrorists.

The Department of Defense classified Catholics and Evangelical Christians as religious extremists similar to Al-Qaeda, according to training materials obtained by the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty. Fox News, August 28, 2013

Sure he nurtures his faith right after he vacuums his prayer rug, puts his soup kettle shaped macramé hat on his pointed head, gets on his knees and then points his tail like a rocket for the moon and bangs his forehead on the ground. It was Zippy himself who tearfully told us the "the most beautiful sound in the world is the muslim call (screaming) to prayer at sundown.

What is this strident push all of a sudden to convince us this muslim pig and his muslim pig family are Christians? Why now?

And then reading on: "Every year on Aug. 4, the president´s birthday, Obama convenes a group of pastors by phone to receive their prayers for him for the year to come leaves me breathless. Almost as breathless as the rest of the article in which Zip includes Maya Angelou among religious leaders like—remember Maya, she became a poetess who jumped to rhyming words when being a whorehouse madam didn´t work. Zippy and Mooch think she´s so good that she wrote a poem—and to her everlasting shame she had the nerve to read it out loud at Zip´s first inauguration. If the word "awful" has degrees, Maya won first place for a piece of trash there isn´t one person in a billion who could tell you what it was all about.

But... the good news is that the liar in chief is nurturing his faith "away from the spotlight." If anyone believes that...

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration?

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

In 2009, in the earliest weeks of President Barack Obama‘s administration, the White House made the controversial decision to take the unprecedented step of moving the Census Bureau from control of the commerce secretary over to the White House ahead of the decennial 2010 census. Conservatives sounded alarm bells. “It takes something that is supposedly apolitical like the census, and gives it to a guy who is infamously political,” said Rep.

Three percent said their federal taxes are "too low." Gallup says the percentage who say their taxes are "too high" has hovered around 50 percent since 2003, although the current 52 percent is up from the 46 percent who said "too high" two years ago.

He’s not “unknown”, and he didn’t just pop up on the horizon. The alleged killer of three at the Overland Park (Kansas) Jewish Community Center and a nearby Jewish retirement home didn’t just “appear out of nowhere”; he’s a man who has been in the public eye before, right here in the Kansas City area and elsewhere, along with his foaming-at-the-mouth anti-Jewish and white supremacist views. The suspect, identified as Frazier Glenn Cross of Aurora, Missouri, is also known as Frazier Glenn Miller or simply Glenn Miller. As Glenn Miller, he ran for the U.S. Senate from Missouri in 2010.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
