Obama: Biblical principles prompted me to push for Dodd-Frank and Obamacare

posted at 1:20 pm on February 2, 2012 by Tina Korbe

This morning, at the National Prayer Breakfast, Barack Obama cited Scripture as justification for his policy agenda — from reforming health care to ensuring that financial institutions play by fair rules to taxing the rich. BuzzFeed’s Zeke Miller reports:

The president said he often falls to his knees in prayer, and emphasized the role of his religious values in determining where to lead the country.

“I’d be remiss if I stopped there; if my values were limited to personal moments of prayer or private conversations with pastors or friends. So instead, I must try — imperfectly, but I must try — to make sure those values motivate me as one leader of this great nation.”

Obama maintained that his call for the wealthiest to give up their tax breaks, he’s doing so out of economic necessity, but also in line with biblical teachings.

“And I think to myself, if I’m willing to give something up as somebody who’s been extraordinarily blessed, and give up some of the tax breaks that I enjoy, I actually think that’s going to make economic sense. But for me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus’s teaching that ‘for unto whom much is given, much shall be required,’” Obama said, noting Jewish and Islamic teachings say much the same thing.

It surprises me to encounter the president using this tactic. In the first place, the specific example he cites above is misapplied. When the president establishes a policy direction — and Congress follows it — his decisions don’t just affect him. When he promotes increased taxation of “the rich,” he’s not merely giving up his own tax breaks as he implies — he’s also suggesting the government should be able to force others to pay more in taxes, as well. That’s just obvious — and to say otherwise actually makes the president look more confused than anything. Here, we seem to have an out-of-water Obama who wants very desperately to pander but doesn’t quite know how.

It’s always a bit tricky to apply Scripture to political problems. After all, Jesus made it very clear to his apostles, who expected the Messiah to win a worldly victory against their oppressors, that His kingdom is not of this world. When he directly addresses the issue of taxation, He says simply to give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to give to God what is God’s. Yes, Jesus is acutely concerned with issues of authority and also with issues of wealth and poverty — but it all proceeds from the basic assumptions that authority comes from His Father and that the spiritual, in general, has primacy over the material. That is, Jesus’ injunctions to His followers to give everything they have to the poor proceed from the idea that whatever stands in the way of loving Him has got to go. It’s about His glory, not about the creation of some utopian society. Those who make Jesus’ teachings about the latter and not the former miss the major point His life, death and resurrection make.

The Bible also says “you will know them by their fruit”. The devil was brash enough to quote scripture to Christ. Obama knows there were enough idiots to vote him into office. He’s hoping they’re still stupid enough to vote for him again.

Satan quoted the Bible when tempting Jesus too. But Jesus knew the whole thing.

Obama’s hypocrisy, his cynical blatant manipulation of the US electorate, of those who do genuinely believe in god, of those who are honest in their beliefs – is outrageous and insulting.

There’s more: “I know the version of that Golden Rule is found in every major religion and every set of beliefs — from Hinduism to Islam to Judaism to the writings of Plato,” Obama added.

This shows how, in addition to his contemptuous manipulation of the religious among us, he is also utterly ignorant. Plato doesn’t follow ‘the Golden Rule’. Plato’s society, as outlined in his Republic, is made up of rigid classes, ruled by a totalitarian elite and the ‘Golden Rule’ is most certainly non-existent.

So Jesus says it is okay for me to be the slave of government? And, that I came after Government so I should be enslaved to my Government Master?

I realize that Jesus said render to Ceasar that which is Ceasar’s, but last time I checked Ceaser is dead and the Republic is based on my individual sovereignty. That means I am not a slave to government nor am I my fellow citizen’s slave.

Healthcare Reform has made me a slave to Government. And, Jesus is okay with this change? Really???

I have equal protection and rights under the law, but if I fail or go bankrupt the government won’t help me. Yet, the Banks fail and my individual sovereignty is diminished by forced taxation to bail these suckers out.

No Obama you have not heard from God, at least not the God I believe in.

liberals claim to be anti-war “war is not the answer”…
…….Obama launches a war without Congressional approval and has not only maintained Bush’s War on Terror policies…he has expanded them.

liberals go on and on about how corrupt Wall St. is…..
Obama is Wall St.’s number one man and has taken more money from the “fat cats” than any other President.

liberals go on and on about how terrible lobbyist are and the evils of K-St.
…….Obama hires lobbyist left and right…they write his Health Care Bill…and K-St. has made records amounts of money under him.

liberals go on and on about “those crazy Christain Conservatives” and how stupid we are for “being led by some unknown being we call God” and how dangerous we are for allowing Religion to influence decision making on Capital Hill….
……….once again Obama is up their talking about how much he communicates with God and makes his decisions based in part on God’s will.

Such hypocrisy and pretzel logic could only be followed and defended by the idiocy that is known as liberalism.

Take it away Dan:

BobScuba on February 2, 2012 at 1:35 PM

Obama is continuing the “social justice” doctrine of Rev. Wright’s “Black Liberation Theology”. He completely misses the point of the joy of freely giving to others from a glad heart. It’s as if he wants the government to replace the role of religion as the focal point of your spiritual life. Also, money is so far removed from anything spiritual. I think Obama is so far off on this, so wrong, that I have trouble finding a correlate to it in history. There’s the glorification of the “State” in communism and socialism. I can’t go there with Obama. It’s more that he’s making a fundamental error in logic. A really bad argument. I don’t want to say he’s a commie.

Get used to it. The alphabets will have him as Mother Teresa and the baby Jesus rolled into one by the election

kunegetikos on February 2, 2012 at 1:41 PM

You can definitely tell President Obama does not actually bother to read his Bible. “To whom much is given, much is required” is only part of the verse (Luke 12:48) “But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.”

In context Jesus was answering Peter who asked if Jesus was telling a parable only to his disciples or to everyone. Jesus basically told him, that Peter and the disciples had the duty of passing on what they had learned and were responsible for those who had not been given the opportunity to learn directly from Jesus.

So, first, this has absolutely NOTHING to do with financial wealth!

But, second, if we do decide to try to apply it to the government, then what it means is that those people RECEIVING government assistance should be prepared to GIVE a great deal back to that government!

This is a WARNING to those on the dole, not a DEMAND that those who have earned wealth need to turn more of it over to the government.

joejmz on February 2, 2012 at 1:41 PM

For somebody who claims to pray on his knees and read scripture daily, why don’t we hear more about faith from the jug-eared hypocrite?

How does a Christian spend 20 years in a church that preaches racial hatred? There is nothing of God in a congregation that believes in a “Black Values System.”

The Obama has been to church six times since coming to DC. They have essentially been C & E Christians. That is fine for Obama and his spouse but how do you raise your children to be good Christians when the only time they darken a church’s doorstep is when it is a media event?

——

These are not judgemental statements but serious questions because the kind of Christianity I know has nothing to do with attending the occasional worship service, misquoting Scripture, and waving a Bible around in front of the media every now and then.
