For a group of people who claim to dislike religion, the Democrats have no problem playing God.
They threw Him out at their convention. Why not? He is just competition they don’t need. That’s what they always do with an opponent: isolate him, make fun of him and make him the object of scorn. It’s the Alinsky way.
Once you’ve done that, the way is open to making yourself a religion with your own chosen God.
Doubt it? Just Sunday actor Jamie Foxx appeared at the Soul Train Music Awards. During it he referred to Obama saying, “First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama.” Then there’s this:
Todd Starnes of Fox News reports that the “painting that features President Obama posed as Jesus Christ crucified on is on display at a community college art gallery in Boston.
“The painting by Michael D’Antuono is part of a larger exhibit called “Artists on the Stump – the Road to the White House 2012.” It’s on display at the Bunker Hill Community College Art Gallery until Dec. 15th.
“The painting is called “Truth” – and shows the president with his arms outstretched. A crown of thorns rests on his head.”
This kind of hubris bodes ill for the country. It’s a sin that goes back to Adam and Eve and that didn’t end well.
There’s hypocrisy, too. The liberal Democrats under Obama want to set up their own religion so to speak. Obama is God, the Senators are cardinals and we are the congregation. Only this religion is a lot harsher than God’s. God gives us free will, but the Democrats don’t.
In our Judeo Christian world we can know something is wrong, but God lets us do it anyway. Not so much with the liberals who want to force us to do their will increasingly and in every part of our lives. They preach to us constantly. Nothing is too small for them to overlook.
Take the light bulb. God said let there be light; the Dems say let there be CFL light. He told us to go forth and multiply. The Dems say go forth, have all the sex you want and you don’t have to multiply. As for going forth, they say don’t. Don’t go anywhere in fact. Stay where you are and conserve energy. If you must, drive a Prius. Only the evil use an SUV.
God gave us the land and told us to make it fruitful. The government says the land belongs to it (remember eminent domain?) and since Roosevelt has been telling farmers what they can and can’t grow. God makes us stewards of our world, but the EPA doubts we can keep clean air and water.
Republicans have been accused of being religious zealots, crazy Bible thumpers and intolerant evangelicals. Who’s the real zealot? The Democrat party admits no heresy and no one can stray from its teachings. Together they will shape the world into their own image. And it’s an ugly one.
