Obama campaign releases ad citing moral, Biblical background for administration policies
Fox News ^ | November 3, 2012 | Kimberly Schwandt

Posted on 11/04/2012 1:47:36 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

The Obama campaign on Saturday quietly released a web video featuring President Obama talking about his faith. The video includes various faith leaders describing how there is moral, even Biblical, backing for his policies on issues ranging from higher taxes for top earners to health care to the auto bailout.

The video opens with the president at the National Prayer Breakfast where he says, “In my moments of prayer, I’m reminded that faith and values play an enormous role in motivating us to solve some of our most urgent problems.”

Woven throughout the video are statements by persons of faith including, Bishop Vashti McKenzie, Professor Catholic Studies Stephen Schneck, and Rabbi Samuel Gordon.

They open by describing Obama’s faith.

“President Barack Obama is leading with faith values,” McKenzie says. “It comes from this basic core belief that when one part suffers, every part every part suffers, it’s deeply religious belief, it comes out of the scriptures,” said Pastor Kerr.

Obama then follows up with a line from the campaign trail, “I believe in country that rewards hard work and responsibility, a country where we look after one another, a country where I say I’m my brother’s keeper, I’m my sister’s keeper.”

Rabbi Gordon brings up health care saying, “His commitment to making sure young people are able to have health care, those with pre-existing conditions able to have health care, being protected is so important.”

Obama made the connection of health care to religion, saying “When I talk about making sure insurance aren’t discriminating against those who are already sick, I do so because genuinely believe it will make the economy stronger for everybody, I also do it because I believe in God’s command to love thy neighbor as thyself,” a statement that also is included in the video...

Every time I see these absolutely shameless appeals to religion by Obama (who I believe to be an atheist at best and a Muslim at worst), I think God must have a big sense of humor because otherwise a huge lightning strike should vaporize this guy on the spot.

They’ve got polling telling them evangelicals are voting in much larger numbers this year than in 2008. Apparently, this is a voting block that Axelrod forgot about until 3 days prior to the election.

If he genuinely believed love thy neighbor as thyself, we would not have gotten Obamacare, we would have gotten Congressional healthcare. But we didn’t and they made sure they were not on what they gave us.

He must be suffering a lot to have purchased a $40M mansion in Hawaii.

Oh, and don’t forget the “biblical” values of sodomy, prenatal infanticide, covetousness, and idolatry.

Methinks the good Bishop is confusing the Book of Marx for the Bible.

Of course, 0bama’s favorite line is about “laying down one’s life.” After all, so damn many have lain theirs down to protect him: Secret Service “suicide” to CIA, SEALs, to US military, Breitbarting various men and women, former lovers. business contacts, even an occasional Ambassador.

All
Fall
Down

And there he is, ‘pure’ as his heart demonstrates to us.

Obama campaign releases ad citing moral, Biblical background for administration policies:

MORAL, BIBLICAL? Oh, I get it now:

"Hello, my name is Satan. I am mentioned numerous times in the Bible. I am known as; the Prince of darkness, Abaddon, the destroyer, the Prince of the power of the air and the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience, the Father of lies, the "god" of this world, Beelzebul, Beelzebub.

I support the reelection of Barak Hussein Obama, He is my kind of guy and my candidate for President of the United States.

So if you like what my man has done, in my behalf, to you, your family, and America over the last four years be sure and vote for him on election day."

Hi, I am Barak Hussein Obama and I approve this message.

Nice try HaxelOdd—— too bad the DNC tried to kick God out of the Convention in August. Now you cite religious faith values to exploit when the reelection outcome for Bam is dire? Shameless hacks-—despicable too.

He’s had the gullible voting bloc in his camp all along. Those are the feeble minded, the druggies, the criminals and people who can’t find their butts with both hands.

It was an attempt to stave off the inundation of preachers, pastors and church personnel who were preaching against this administration and it's anti-faith based policies.

There is a hidden evangelical vote no one talked much about this year...that stayed home in 08, that is coming out in mass this year. not specifically against Obama, but the entire administration.

But did obamanation say "I believe Jesus Christ is my personal savior" or did he say "there is no god by allah, and moohamhead is is prophet." ?

this is merely his futile attempt to counter the wonderful video the Catholic church put out about voting this November.That video inspires Catholics and evangelical Protestants to vote their faith and stick to Biblical principles that Obama has totally fought against while he has been in office.

Obama’s well-known stance on same sex marriage and abortion doesn’t fool any of us. The “religious leaders” who are in the newest video are not adhering to their religions’ tenets if they support him. No good Catholic, no good Christian, no good Jew can possibly support Obama with a clear conscience and be willing to support that to God at the day of reckoning.

If that is so, why are you wearing a “Mohammedan wedding ring”? The script on it says, “There is no god but allah”.

“President Barack Obama is leading with faith values,”McKenzie says.

This is all just trash talk, these folks know damn well King Barry isn't, a "goot Christian man".

Race doesn't matter to Christians, but things like the systematic mass murder of black infants through abortion, queers being married to one another, and teaching children that being a queer is just another "lifestyle choice", do matter to Christians.

Unfortunately, it looks like Bishop McKenzie is in that 97% of black folks who claim to be Christian but in reality believe that their race is far more important than following Christ. No matter what sort of religious costume they wear, any blacks who stand up and shill for the democrat plantation party is a Judas goat leading the sheep to the slaughter.

So, after 4 whole years of usurpation, sedition, denigration, and destruction of Judeo-Christian values, teachings, and sensibilities, now he’s noticed we Americans are still out here? Guess what, BHusseinO, we are not as stupid as you think we are! We may not be here to judge our fellow man, but we CAN discern an honest tree from a rotten one.
And we certainly can tell when a blatantly Satanic wolf suddenly runs for the cover of sheep’s clothing just two days before re-election. (Matthew 7:15). Sorry, Barack, you’ve done us all too much damage already. Start packing for whatever retirement villa your Saudi Muslim dictator pals have arranged for you: Kenya, Indonesia, Arabia, Iran, Cuba, Russia, Venezuela, ??? We know you’ll be happy there, since you tried so hard to pull America down to that level. Oh yes, and do please drop us a card when you get there, so we will know when to start the party here in America.

Obama has told us the U.S. is no longer a Christian nation. So why is he talking about his non-Christian faith? Oh, yes, to get all the votes he can.
