And why do I spend my Sunday thinking about this stuff when I should be nursing a bourbon and two sore shoulders from picking away at all this ice that Man Made Global Warming caked 3″ deep in my driveway.
For some, it’s a default thing to do. Your parents were this religion and you never questioned it. Christianity was the default by geography and there was nothing else around. You picked it by going along with whatever your spouse was.
Words I never thought I’d utter: Darrel Waltrip’s speech really got me thinking.
That link is to Waltrip’s speech at the same National Prayer Breakfast where Obama attacked Christians, his own alleged religious affiliation, for The Crusades. In it, Waltrip gives his sincere and moving testimony. If you haven’t seen it in full, it’s a great speech. He talks about “getting off his high horse and getting on his knees”. Later on, Obama talks about how Americans and Christians in particular need to get off their high horse about Islamic Terrorism because of the Crusades or something. And because he just can’t let any perceived slight against Islam go.
Ayatollah Obama’s non-sequitur notwithstanding, I have never heard him give an explanation as to why he converted from Islam to Christianity. He has spoken about his Muslim faith on many occasions. Hearing the calls from the minarets being the most beautiful sound in the world, etc. It’s a big decision that people of faith would not take lightly.
If a Democrat Party operative, pretending to be a reporter, is that interested in plumbing the depths of Obama’s plainly obvious faith – then why not go straight to the source? Personally, I would be intrigued to hear about Obama’s conversion from the Islamo-death cult, getting the knees of his freshly pressed slacks dirty to ask for forgiveness and humbling himself before a Jew even though he was already perfect.
What event could have triggered such a conversion? There have been several, wildly different versions that Obama has offered himself of how he became some type of Christian. But, and it may just be the cynic in me, it appears that he “converted” to Christianity when he moved to Chicago, lost an election to Bobby Rush for not being black enough, ran up a crap ton of campaign debt, and enrolled in Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s hugely influential church solely to get his endorsement and help to get elected.
Wright himself has previously said that he made it easy for Buh-rock to not have to renounce his Islamic faith.
Klein says Obama originally sought out Wright to discuss community activism.
“Quickly the conversations turned from picking up garbage on the street and getting streetlights put up on street corners to political matters and religious matters,” Klein says. “And the Rev. Wright turned into really a substitute father figure, who guided Obama in the two major areas of his life.”
The first area was Obama’s identity — just who was he?
“Obama was steeped in Islam but knew nothing about Christianity,” Klein says.
Klein asked Wright if he converted Obama from being a Muslim into a Christian.
“He said, I don’t know about that. but I can tell you that I made it easy for him to come to an understanding of who Jesus Christ is and not feel that he was turning his back on his Islamic friends and his Islamic traditions and his understanding of Islam,” Klein says.
That is coming from the Reverend who allegedly converted him. Understanding who Christ is or was is not an acceptance of him as your God. Perhaps all of these inquisitive reporters might consult Reverend Wright as to his opinion? They’ve already gone back to Scott Walker’s college teacher from 25 years ago to tell him to “man up” about answering questions on evolution. Obama only left Wright’s church in 2008. If my Common Core calculations are correct, that was only a potato ago.
As a lifelong atheist, it would be tremendously beneficial for my soul and to save me from eternal damnation to hear how Obama was reborn in the blood of Jesus Christ and saw that he was the light and the only true path to Heaven. What Christian leader would disagree with getting that kind of message out there?
For crying out loud Barack, Reverend Wright saved your goddamned soul from worshiping the false god Allah and his child molesting prophet Muhammad. Why won’t you try to save mine? It’s your obligation as a Christian!
