Barack Obama: 20 Quotes on Islam; 20 quotes on Christianity–So Which is He?

Barack Obama on Islam:

1. “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam”

2. “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”

3. “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world – including in my own country.”

4. “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”

5. “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”

6. “Islam has always been part of America”

7. “we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”

8. “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”

9. “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”

10. “I made clear that America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam.”

11. “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”

12. “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”

13. “In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.”

14. “throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”

15. “Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality”

16. “The Holy Koran tells us, ‘O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.’”

17. “I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.”

18. “We’ve seen those results in generations of Muslim immigrants – farmers and factory workers, helping to lay the railroads and build our cities, the Muslim innovators who helped build some of our highest skyscrapers and who helped unlock the secrets of our universe.”

19. “That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

20. “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”

Barack Obama on Christianity:

1. “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”

2. “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”

3. “Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?”

4. “Even those who claim the Bible’s inerrancy make distinctions between Scriptural edicts, sensing that some passages – the Ten Commandments, say, or a belief in Christ’s divinity – are central to Christian faith, while others are more culturally specific and may be modified to accommodate modern life.”

5. “The American people intuitively understand this, which is why the majority of Catholics practice birth control and some of those opposed to gay marriage nevertheless are opposed to a Constitutional amendment to ban it. Religious leadership need not accept such wisdom in counseling their flocks, but they should recognize this wisdom in their politics.”

6. From Obama’s book, The Audacity of Hope: “I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex-nor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount.”

7. Obama’s response when asked what his definition of sin is: “Being out of alignment with my values.”

8. “If all it took was someone proclaiming I believe Jesus Christ and that he died for my sins, and that was all there was to it, people wouldn’t have to keep coming to church, would they.”

9. “This is something that I’m sure I’d have serious debates with my fellow Christians about. I think that the difficult thing about any religion, including Christianity, is that at some level there is a call to evangelize and proselytize. There’s the belief, certainly in some quarters, that people haven’t embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior that they’re going to hell.”

10. “I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. That’s just not part of my religious makeup.”

11. “I don’t presume to have knowledge of what happens after I die. But I feel very strongly that whether the reward is in the here and now or in the hereafter, the aligning myself to my faith and my values is a good thing.”

12. “I’ve said this before, and I know this raises questions in the minds of some evangelicals. I do not believe that my mother, who never formally embraced Christianity as far as I know … I do not believe she went to hell.”

13. “Those opposed to abortion cannot simply invoke God’s will-they have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths.”

14. On his support for civil unions for gay couples: “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount.”

15. “You got into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

16. “In our household, the Bible, the Koran and the Bhagavad Gita sat on the shelf alongside books of Greek and Norse and African mythology”

17. “On Easter or Christmas Day, my mother might drag me to church, just as she dragged me to the Buddhist temple, the Chinese New Year celebration, the Shinto shrine, and ancient Hawaiian burial sites.”

18. “We have Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, and their own path to grace is one that we have to revere and respect as much as our own”

19. “All of us have a responsibility to work for the day when the mothers of Israelis and Palestinians can see their children grow up without fear; when the Holy Land of the three great faiths is the place of peace that God intended it to be; when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra – (applause) – as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed, peace be upon them, joined in prayer. (Applause.)”

20. “I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”

    Obama Gets Back To Work… Fundraising For 2016 Elections…

    The midterm elections may be over, but for President Barack Obama, the fundraising hasn’t stopped.

    Obama is headlining a fundraiser at a ritzy hotel near the White House to benefit the Democratic National Committee. The DNC says roughly 30 donors paid up to $32,400 each to attend.

    It’s Obama’s first fundraiser since Democrats took a drubbing on Nov. 4, losing House seats and control of the Senate. Many Democrats blamed Obama.

      Well, they control the audience for these things and his poor ego needs the stroking. Besides, it’s the only thing he kinda good at. If only keeping him out of DC would stop the Left’s rampages, but as long as Jarrett’s in the White Hut, grrrr.

    WH Can’t Explain Why Soap Opera Producer Just Became Ambassador to Hungary
    White House spokesman Josh Earnest was unable to provide a cogent explanation for why Colleen Bell, a former soap opera producer, just became the U.S. ambassador to Hungary:
    (hint:she raised a lot of money for Teh Won)

    McCain Rips Obama Ambassador: I’m Sure Television Viewing Is Important in Hungary, But This Nominee Is Totally Unqualified For This Position

    “Her only significant qualification is that she bundled $2.1M for president Obama’s reelection efforts”
    She has no experience in foreign policy or national security, no familiarity with the language, country or the region, has never been there and lacks meaningful knowledge of history or economics”

    Jeh Johnson: Legalized Illegals Don’t Need to Comply With Obamacare

    Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said in congressional testimony today that the Affordable Care Act–also known as Obamacare–will not apply to illegal aliens who are allowed to stay and work in the United States as a result of President Obama’s executive action

      So hubby is subject to a tax because he can’t afford health insurance premiums, but an illegal legal is not? Yep. The world is upside down and Obama’s evil handlers are all laughing themselves sick. Good to know God wins in the end, isn’t it?

    Sessions: House GOP Is Already Close To Breaking Their 2014 Election Promises…

    Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) suggested that House Republicans are on the verge of breaking their campaign promise to fight President Obama’s administrative amnesty, as evidenced by the legislative text currently being circulated.

    Sessions said that the proposed language “fails to meet [the] test” established by Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus, who promised earlier this year that the GOP would do everything possible to thwart Obama’s executive orders.

    You didn’t really think these sorry asses would actually keep their promises,did you?

    Planned Parenthood: We’ll have to close our clinics if Gov. Walker investigates us for Medicaid fraud
    It’s not even under investigation, but Planned Parenthood is worried it is coming to the end of the line in Scott Walker’s Wisconsin.

    Investigators with the state’s Department of Health Office of Inspector General (OIG) say that two family planning facilities alone have charged the Medicaid program more than twice their allowable cost for birth control, overbilling taxpayers by millions of dollars a year. A spokesperson for Planned Parenthood Wisconsin admitted, if the state will demand that they follow the law as written, it would have to shut down its locations across the state.

    White House: Obama Was ‘Speaking Colloquially’ When He Said He Changed Immigration Law
    colloquially:accidentally telling the truth

    Did the president misspeak in a moment of passion to try to calm the crowd? Or do you fundamentally believe that he has taken action to change the law?” asked CBS reporter Major Garrett during the White House Press Briefing.

    White House press secretary Josh Earnest explained that Obama was “speaking colloquially” when he made his remarks.

    Sheriff David Clarke: Holder Has Every Police Officer Painted as a Racist & I Reject That (Video)
    Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke gained notoriety after releasing a series of radio advertisements encouraging people to arm themselves for self defense purposes. Clarke just won re-election in Wisconsin.

    Today, Clarke called out Attorney General Eric Holder for painting all police officers as racist.

    “You know it really bothers me. That he won’t pinpoint this thing. He has every officer in America painted as a racist. Again, I reject that and I’m going to continue to push back on this guy.”

    GOP Senators Silent as Senate Dems Reduce Troops’ Pay, Housing Allowance

    To pay for President Obama’s adventures in Iraq and Syria.
    Hewitt invited Inhofe on to discuss the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that quietly passed the Senate yesterday with no real objection from Republicans. According to Military Times, the act will increase spending $64 billion more for “overseas contingency funds, including about $5 billion for the current fight in Iraq and Syria.” To pay for President Obama’s adventures in Iraq and Syria, the NDAA will reduce pay to our troops:

    In addition, lawmakers approved trimming back the housing allowances paid to troops who live off base. The Pentagon initially sought to reduce the tax-free housing benefit by 5 percent by reducing the 100 percent of troops’ estimated housing costs that are covered now down to an average of 95 percent — in effect making troops pay 5 percent of their housing with out-of-pocket cash. The new deal allowing only a 1 percent reduction for one year pushes off future decisions for now.

    Mary Landrieu Continues Struggling to Defend Campaign Charter Flights on Taxpayer Dime


    • chrissythehyphenated

      But you ONLY paid back when you got caught, So what else have you stolen that we haven’t found out about? And what’s with the “my opponent is taking no responsibility” slander? Really? Did he cheat and get caught and have to pay what he owed too? No? Ohhhhhhhhhhhh. So maybe he’s taking no responsibility, because he hasn’t done anything wrong.

    Sec. Clinton went right from a fundraiser for pro-KXL Mary Landrieu to event for anti-KXL enviro group. Heh

    First, Clinton appeared at a private fundraiser for Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), an embattled incumbent who favors construction of the massive Keystone XL oil pipeline opposed by environmentalists.

    Just two hours later, Clinton appeared on a different stage to deliver a speech to the League of Conservation Voters — a mainstream environmental group that strenuously opposes Keystone.

    Dem Staffer Who Drugged And Raped Woman While She Was Unconscious Gets No Jail Time…

    Remember when Elizabeth Lauten criticized the jaded offspring of the emperor and the media got the vapors?Try finding anything about this anywhere
    — A former Democratic congressional aide has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing two women who were under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

    The Washington Post reports that 37-year-old Donny Ray Williams pleaded guilty Tuesday in D.C. Superior Court. Williams had served as a staff director for the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs subcommittee.

    Both of the assaults occurred in 2010. Prosecutors say Williams invited a colleague to his apartment, where he spiked her drink with a sleep aid and raped the woman while she was asleep.

    A month later, prosecutors say Williams gave a woman alcoholic beverages and had sexual contact with her when she was too drunk to consent.

    Prosecutors plan to seek a suspended prison term and five years of supervised probation.

    Big Bucks Obama Backer Bones Boys

    The sleazy story the mainstream media is ignoring.

    Dem fundraiser charged with child sex abuse met Obama often, flew on Air Force One

    A prominent gay rights activist charged last week with sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy is a strong supporter of President Obama who has visited the White House more than a half-dozen times in the past two years, visitor logs show.

    Terrence P. Bean, 66, who raised more than a half-million dollars for Mr. Obama’s re-election campaign in 2012, last visited the White House on May 30 when he met with the president, first lady Michelle Obama and political adviser David Simas.

    White House visitor logs show that Mr. Bean, co-founder of the Human Rights Campaign, a leading gay rights group, also has visited the White House on at least six other occasions since June 2012. On one visit in 2013, Mr. Bean brought along Kiah Lawson, described in news reports as his ex-boyfriend, who is also charged with sexually assaulting the juvenile.

    Are you noticing a pattern here?

    Homeless guy steals ambulance to go to strip club: cites lack of public transportation

    A homeless man with a need for speed – among other things – stole an ambulance late Sunday because he wanted to go to a strip club – and there weren’t any buses running!
    Well, there are worse reasons to steal a hideously expensive piece of life-saving machinery, stocked to the gills with drugs that can bring a whole lot of cash on the street.
