Obama to rabbis on health care: “We are God’s partners in matters of life and death”

posted at 6:10 pm on August 19, 2009 by Allahpundit

Mmmmmm, that’s some tasty religious pandering. Just what Dr. AP ordered!

President Barack Obama needs some outside help pushing health care reform, and he’s turning to rabbis to get it.

In a morning conference call with about 1000 rabbis from across the nation, Obama asked for aid: “I am going to need your help in accomplishing necessary reform,” the President told the group, according to Rabbi Jack Moline, who tweeted his way through the phoner.

“We are God’s partners in matters of life and death,” Obama went on to say, according to Moline’s real-time stream.

I don’t think I’ve ever heard a believer be so presumptuous as to say we’re “partners” with God on the ultimate question, let alone one who’s pushing a government program that’s got people worried about “death panels,” but oh well. Water off an atheist’s back, baby. In fact, partnership’s actually a nice conceptual framework for The One’s position on abortion: God’s the junior partner and we’re the senior partners, and sometimes the senior partner has to exercise his/her veto.

Theological question: If God’s onboard with ObamaCare, what sort of terrible wrath is America risking by tanking the Democrats’ numbers ever since they started talking about it? New from Pew:

The One’s approval rating in the same poll: Just above the water line at 51 percent, which is exactly where it is in Gallup and Rasmussen today, too. That’s 10 points below where he was just two months ago. Exit question: Second look at faith-based politics for the left? (Yes!)

God’s partners? Presumptuous much?

God’s servants, sure (for those from a faith-based perspective). Partners implies a relationship much too close to an equal relationship between mortals and divinity. Whatever Obama learned under Rev. Wright, it sure wasn’t Christianity.

“We are God’s partners in matters of life and death,” Obama went on to say, according to Moline’s real-time stream.

So we’ve got to determine when to let people die because they’re too expensive… by our partnership with God.

See, God puts people on this earth, then Obama decides they’ve been here long enough and don’t get medical treatment and die.

God’s partner… oh, and we can even stop that life before birth through free Government paid abortions. Just like God would want. He knew that child shouldn’t be born, so we can stop that mistake from happening.

IF you’re confused, just think:
Who would Jesus rob and/or underpay to fund an abortion?

Nazi Euthanasia

In October of 1939 amid the turmoil of the outbreak of war Hitler ordered widespread “mercy killing” of the sick and disabled.

Code named “Aktion T 4,” the Nazi euthanasia program to eliminate “life unworthy of life” at first focused on newborns and very young children. Midwives and doctors were required to register children up to age three who showed symptoms of mental retardation, physical deformity, or other symptoms included on a questionnaire from the Reich Health Ministry.

A decision on whether to allow the child to live was then made by three medical experts solely on the basis of the questionnaire, without any examination and without reading any medical records.

Each expert placed a + mark in red pencil or – mark in blue pencil under the term “treatment” on a special form. A red plus mark meant a decision to kill the child. A blue minus sign meant a decision against killing. Three plus symbols resulted in a euthanasia warrant being issued and the transfer of the child to a ‘Children’s Specialty Department’ for death by injection or gradual starvation.

The decision had to be unanimous. In cases where the decision was not unanimous the child was kept under observation and another attempt would be made to get a unanimous decision.

The Nazi euthanasia program quickly expanded to include older disabled children and adults. Hitler’s decree of October, 1939, typed on his personal stationary, enlarged “the authority of certain physicians to be designated by name in such manner that persons who, according to human judgment, are incurable can, upon a most careful diagnosis of their condition of sickness, be accorded a mercy death.”

Questionnaires were then distributed to mental institutions, hospitals and other institutions caring for the chronically ill.

Patients had to be reported if they suffered from schizophrenia, epilepsy, senile disorders, therapy resistant paralysis and syphilitic diseases, retardation, encephalitis, Huntington’s chorea and other neurological conditions, also those who had been continuously in institutions for at least 5 years, or were criminally insane, or did not posses German citizenship or were not of German or related blood, including Jews, Negroes, and Gypsies.

A total of six killing centers were established including the well known psychiatric clinic at Hadamar. The euthanasia program was eventually headed by an SS man named Christian Wirth, a notorious brute with the nickname ‘the savage Christian.’

At Brandenburg, a former prison was converted into a killing center where the first Nazi experimental gassings took place. The gas chambers were disguised as shower rooms, but were actually hermetically sealed chambers connected by pipes to cylinders of carbon monoxide. Patients were generally drugged before being led naked into the gas chamber. Each killing center included a crematorium where the bodies were taken for disposal. Families were then falsely told the cause of death was medical such as heart failure or pneumonia.

But the huge increase in the death rate for the disabled combined with the very obvious plumes of odorous smoke over the killing centers aroused suspicion and fear. At Hadamar, for example, local children even taunted arriving busloads of patients by saying “here comes some more to be gassed.”

On August 3, 1941, a Catholic Bishop, Clemens von Galen, delivered a sermon in Münster Cathedral attacking the Nazi euthanasia program calling it “plain murder.” The sermon sent a shockwave through the Nazi leadership by publicly condemning the program and urged German Catholics to “withdraw ourselves and our faithful from their (Nazi) influence so that we may not be contaminated by their thinking and their ungodly behavior.”

As a result, on August 23, Hitler suspended Aktion T4, which had accounted for nearly a hundred thousand deaths by this time.

The Nazis retaliated against the Bishop by beheading three parish priests who had distributed his sermon, but left the Bishop unharmed to avoid making him into a martyr.

However, the Nazi euthanasia program quietly continued, but without the widespread gassings. Drugs and starvation were used instead and doctors were encouraged to decide in favor of death whenever euthanasia was being considered.

The use of gas chambers at the euthanasia killing centers ultimately served as training centers for the SS. They used the technical knowledge and experience gained during the euthanasia program to construct huge killing centers at Auschwitz, Treblinka and other concentration camps in an attempt to exterminate the entire Jewish population of Europe. SS personnel from the euthanasia killing centers, notably Wirth, Franz Reichleitner and Franz Stangl later commanded extermination camps.

The health-care crisis began when the public was sold on the deception that health-care is a right. It is not. Rights are defined as things that our government can not take away from us. Among these are the rights to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness. The government has no obligation to provide you with these things, but we are protected from the government taking them away. Of course there are exceptions like taxes, prisons, capitol punishment and eminent domain, but I will not discuss them here. The point that I am making is that rights are not entitlements.

Life, Liberty, Property and the Persuit of Health Care

garyganu on August 19, 2009 at 6:25 PM

God doesn’t have partners when it comes to making these decisions.

If Bama had any real religious background, he would know this.

Black Liberation Theology is Marxism cloaked in religious words, the godless camoflaged in the godly…but at its core has nothing to do with God and everything to do with grievance politics and the Marxist worldview, which does not honor God but competes with and replaces Him to deny the masses their opiate.

This manure-filled concept of being “partners” is consistent with what he may have learned from his buddy Wright, but is utterly false if you take even a cursory look through the Bible.

Maybe the mullahs would buy this, which raises another question, but I can’t see an educated Christian or Jew going down this path. Atheists have to reject it as their is no God to partner with.

Who’s left to stand with Barry on this?

Barry, old son…you just stepped into it again…twit. Maybe there’s a dogcatcher job waiting for you back in Chi Town.

Eyebrows were also raised by the choice of hold music that played to rabbis before the call began.

“First mistake,” Moline tweeted, as he waited for the call to begin. “Music on hold is ‘Deutschland uber Alles,’ ” a classical German anthem, the lyrics to which in part say, “Preserve and protect our Kaiser, our land.”

(The music was chosen by the company carrying the conference call, not the White House or the RAC.)

I think God may be trying to send them a subliminal message not to trust his new “partner”.

ALINSKY RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

The “hitler” meme has worked.

Now Obama can really sound like Hitler, and we have self-silenced.

Most Jewish people in America are somehow connected to Israel one way or the other

liberal4eva on August 19, 2009 at 6:25 PM

Yeah, most Israelis are Jewish and most Jewish people are Jewish. Ta da! Connection.

Congratulations on your generalization of about 6.5 million people.

Liberal Jews hate Israel and are hoping that it will disappear soon, so they don’t have to keep apologizing for it at their cocktail parties and hip-hop political events.

No self-respecting rabbi should ever participate in such a call with this Jew-hating President.

“Glorious Things of Thee are Spoken.”

Music by Franz Josef Haydn…originally “Gott, Erhalte den kaiser.” (God save the Emperor)

Hmmm…the Hand of Providence at work?

Emperor Obama (Obama the Unclothed) has just locked horns with someOne way way above Obama’s pay grade.

God just did a better face-palm than Picard…

“We are God’s partners in matters of life and death”

No amount of study of Obama’s past actions would permit us to infer any partnership with God.

Gets the post count up.

huh?

I’m not the same as liberal343. I only logged in after I found out he was banned.

liberal4eva on August 19, 2009 at 6:24 PM

Why?

bridgetown on August 19, 2009 at 6:25 PM

Because liberal343, aka liberal4eva, is hard to train?

Loxodonta on August 19, 2009 at 6:31 PM

I don’t think I’ve ever heard a believer be so presumptuous as to say we’re “partners” with God on the ultimate question

You still haven’t.
