Bitter Barack Obama and Religion

The publicizing of Rev. Wright's "greatest hits" on America and white people raised serious questions as to what kind of "Christian" Obama himself is and a recently released tape strongly suggests that Obama is a sly politician with contempt for both religion and religious people.

We knew that the Obamas were bitter about their student loans having to be actually paid and those of us who read Michelle Obama's Princeton senior thesis knew that she was bitter to "have found that at Princeton no matter how liberal and open-minded some of my White professors and classmates try to be toward [her}, [she] sometimes fel[lt] like a visitor on campus" and "that the path [she] ha[d] chosen to follow by attending Princeton will likely...only allow [her] to remain on the periphery of society; never becoming a full participant."

But we did not know how bitter Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. is about religion.

Mit Romney's fabulous Faith in America speech must have horrified him.

Since announcing his presidential candidacy early last year, Obama has been presenting himself as a savior in whom Americans should put their hope as well as assuring us that he never was a Muslim (like his father), he had stopped being an atheist and he had become a Christian who prays to Christ every night (politically wise, if not necessary, since America has never had an avowed atheist president).

Like Obama's parents, Karl Marx denied God's existence.

The cunning presidential hopeful wrote that Rev. Jeremiah A. "God damn America" Wright, Jr. brought him to Christ, but the publicizing of Rev. Wright's "greatest hits" on America and white people raised serious questions as to what kind of "Christian" Obama himself is and a recently released tape strongly suggests that Obama is a sly politician with contempt for both religion and religious people.

Karl Marx

"Religion is...the self-consciousness and self-esteem of man who has either not yet won through to himself, or has already lost himself again. But man is no abstract being squatting outside the world. Man is the world of man—state, society. This state and this society produce religion, which is an inverted consciousness of the world, because they are an inverted world. Religion is the general theory of this world, its encyclopedic compendium, its logic in popular form, its spiritual point d'honneur, its enthusiasm, its moral sanction, its solemn complement, and its universal basis of consolation and justification. It is the fantastic realization of the human essence since the human essence has not acquired any true reality. The struggle against religion is, therefore, indirectly the struggle against that world whose spiritual aroma is religion.

"Religious suffering is, at one and the same time, the expression of real suffering and a protest against real suffering. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people. The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is the demand for their real happiness. To call on them to give up their illusions about their condition is to call on them to give up a condition that requires illusions. The criticism of religion is, therefore, in embryo, the criticism of that vale of tears of which religion is the halo."

Obama exposer Andy Martin: ""Fundamentally, Barack is the first Anti-American candidate for president of the United States. He has been running down America in secret séances with wealthy liberals. Now we know why Obama and his wife hold closed-to-the-media fund raising sessions with wealthy contributors. They want secrecy so they can spew out their message of hate and contempt for the American people. They want secrecy so they can run a public campaign of piety and concern for American values, and a private campaign of elitism and condescension and contempt for the United States. The Secret Campaign has now been exposed for what it is by the ‘San Francisco Tape.’

That tape captured Obama suggesting that small-town America is “bitter” about America and that Americans “cling” to “religion” (as well as "guns") as an outlet for their bitterness.

Barack is a product of secular extremism and extreme political correctness with apparently no more genuine respect for religion that he really has for the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Hardball's Chris Matthews, an NBC Obama shill who routinely says that people should blithely accept that Obama is a Christian simply because he says so is, at best, a fool.

Mr. Martin: "“For Obama to suggest that people turn to Christ and attend church out of bitterness devalues every Christian around the world. Obviously...after twenty years of the distorted racist theology of Reverend Wright, Obama still has no conception of Christian theology. People do not seek Christ out of bitterness; they seek His church out of grace. Obama may be a ‘Christian’ out of political expediency, but his remarks in California reflect contempt for the Christian message."

In 1999, former Minnesota Governor (and professional wrestler) Jesse "The Body" Ventura said in an interview with Playboy, "Organized religion is a sham and a crutch for weak-minded people who need strength in numbers."

Mr. Ventura has not been elected since.

So don't expect Obama to run as an obnoxious atheist!

Next week Pope Benedict XVI will visit America, bringing the message of hope in Christ.

That's a message on which America was founded, has prospered and can continue to prosper.
