Theologian Paul Begley of Indiana does a ten minute sermon on Michelle’s Jesus reference of April 17, 2012. He is NOT pleased!
Personally, I think Begley is being way too generous to Michelle in passing this off as a faux pas by her speech writers. This Obama-as-Jesus meme has been going on for years and the Obamas have both actively participated in it.
I’ve been collecting stuff about the Left’s elevation of Obama to some kind of divinity. [Brace yourself. There is some serious sacrilege here.]
After Michelle’s speech, there was an uproar from Christians, who conveniently do not put out fatwas on heretics like the Obamas (which is no doubt why they are NOT comparing Obama to Mohammed). Still … while there were no calls for stoning or beheading, there was enough outrage from Christians that the White House talking head tried to spin it that Michelle had not been referencing Jesus and the Bible, but Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz.
Yeah, right. Maybe in some all-gay neighborhood, the audience would think “Oz”, but Michelle Obama was speaking in the Bible Belt, for crying out loud!
Besides that, exactly one skinny week after Michelle’s speech, the Christian uproar and Jay Carney’s spin cycle, Barack Obama himself put on this “Can I have an Amen on that” for students at UNC.
We’ve seen how Obama treated the Catholic bishops’ protest over the HHS mandate.
March 6, 2012: Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic bishops, has released a public letter today detailing a stunning conversation he and other bishops had with top White House officials about the controversial Obama HHS mandate. The bishops were asked to come to the White House to “work out the wrinkles” of the mandate, but when they got there, were just told that, as far as Obama et al. are concerned, the mandate is carved in stone.
The White House Press Secretary sneered at the bishops, saying they had always opposed Health Care anyway, which is just flat out wrong. Most of them have supported it for decades, ignoring the warning bells tolled by the minority about exactly what has come about. Dolan said, “The White House seems to think we bishops simply do not know or understand Catholic teaching.”
How blatant and in our faces do they have to get before people of faith embrace the FACT that this administration HATES US?
