President George W. Bush has terribly misspoken about the true word of God and is likely to experience consequences in response to his errant remarks and beliefs that were pronounced publicly at the fifth annual Ramadan Banquet held in the State Dining Room at the White House.
Some quotes of note: We must also firmly oppose all who commit evil in God's name. I have great confidence in the future of this nation, and in the future of the Muslim world. As we celebrate this special Iftaar, we renew the ties of friendship that bind all those who trace their faith back to God's call on Abraham. Ramadan is the holiest time of the Muslim year. According to Islamic teaching, this month commemorates the revelation of God's word to the Prophet Muhammad in the form of the Koran. For more than a billion Muslims, Ramadan is a time of heartfelt prayer and togetherness. It is a time of fasting and personal sacrifice. It's a time to give thanks for God's blessings through works of charity.
These were not the words of an Islamic cleric, but rather the words of the President of the United States as he welcomed Muslim leaders to the White House for his fifth annual Ramadan Banquet in the State Dining Room. The President initiated the Iftaar to foster better relations between Americans and Islam after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. It has become a tradition at the White House.
To the poltically correct this is a wonderful ecumenical, inter-faith outreach, but, Biblically it is a form of abomination in the very least, if not blasphemy. The President has made extraordinarily false claims equating the god of Islam with the one true God as he receives Islam rather than being salt and light to it.
The President has terribly misspoken. Allah and Jehovah are not the same. Muhammad, did not receive a revelation of Gods word, as was so aptly put by the President. Muhammads so-called revelation came thousands of years after Gods Biblical revelations and hundreds of years after Christ. Muhammad made up Allah and wrote a book designed not to foster friendship, but rather to continue enmity between Jews and Arabs. Muhmmad has perpetrated the creulist hoax upon millions of peoplethey believe in a non-existant god that will only result in the eternity of hell. That any Christian, let alone a Christian President dare claim Muhammad received a revelation from God is bordering heresey.
There is no other God than Jehovah. In Exodus 20:3, God commanded, Thou shalt have no other gods before me. And in Ezekiel 3:18, God says, When I say unto the wicked, You shall surely die; and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at your hand.
The President is ignoring the word of God to patronize a false religion when he professes to know the truth, and the blood shall be on his hand. These are very dangerous proclamations made by the President because they not only reflect upon him, but also upon the nation he leads.
Well, the President of the United States is the President of ALL the citizens of this country, including the 5 million or so Muslims who are citizens here.
The POTUS is not a minister. He is not a theologian. He is a President.
Muslims believe that the Judeo-Christian deity and Allah are the same entity. President Bush is addressing their beliefs, not yours.
If he addressed a Jewish group at one of the Jewish holidays, he would not mention Jesus in his remarks. If he addressed a Buddhist group, he would mention no deities at all.
Do not confuse his remarks as reflecting HIS beliefs. They reflect the beliefs of the audience he is addressing.
The President, being president of all Americans, is still accountable to the God he says he believes in, and he claims to be a Christian.
His statements prove he does NOT believe the God of the Bible is God.
And he has a personal requirement to act like he believes, and at the very least, his statements should reflect it.
To place ANY equivalency of the false pagan god Allah with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is just another reason to expect Hurrican Wilma to strike Florida with great devestation.
That's good enough for me. Let's impeach him then burn him at the stake.
President Roosevelt didn't initiate Shinto ceremonies with the Japanese, or conduct book-burning rituals with Nazis. Why does this President pander to our enemies and leave our economy open for plunder by foreign labor? Unacceptable!
ALL of the Bushes are Arab lovers and Moslem lovers. No surprise since Bush 41 is Anglecan(sp?) and Bush 43 is "United Methodist".
Kagoggie, that's what's for dinner tonight.
I always vote for the president who will tell which is the true God. You need to get over it and go to church and pray quietly.
So many names for God, you'd think this was the Tibetan highlands or something. Gimme a prayer wheel eh!
Hmmm? President Roosevelt was involved extensively in the planning for the initiation of Shinto rites on the Tidal Basin.
"To place ANY equivalency of the false pagan god Allah with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is just another reason to expect Hurrican Wilma to strike Florida with great devestation."
Ah, jeez, not that nonsense again, OK? Hurricanes are not your deity's punishment for anything. They are a natural weather phenomenon.
Do Buddhists believe that Buddha is a god? I don't think so.
As I understand it, Allah is the God of Abraham just as Jehovah is. One God, many names.
Bush has made Wotan angry! Beware the consequences.
HEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHE I think I know that place! About 10 clicks south of Camp Red Cloud.
*Man, it would suck if that one religion was right and I came back as a dog or cat in some third world county :-).
Hey, look at the bright side, you may come back as a rabbit in Austraila.
