From the TimesOnline, U.K., this tenderly misleadingly-worded article:
“Barack Obama sets up internet ‘war room’ to fight slurs – Internet ‘war room’ will rebuff false rumours”
This quote (emphasis added for purposes of discussion, here):
…The “war room” comes as the Obama campaign prepares a series of biographical speeches, television advertisements and campaign appearances to tell his life story, an attempt to make voters more familiar with him. Despite his long nomination fight against Mrs Clinton, his campaign aides concede that millions of Americans still feel that they do not really know him.
Mr Obama’s Kenyan father, who left the family when he was 2, was a Muslim, but not particularly religious. The Illinois senator lived in Indonesia from the age of 6 until 10 with his white, American mother and Indonesian stepfather, who was a Muslim.
Mr Obama has never been a Muslim, or worshiped at a mosque. He moved from being agnostic to finding Christ in his 20s, with the help of his former Chicago pastor: the Rev Jeremiah Wright, a figure whose incendiary sermons now haunt his candidacy and has increased suspicions among some voters about his patriotism.
A poll in mid-March found that 13 per cent of Americans think that Mr Obama is a Muslim — a 5 per cent increase since December 2007. Another found that 23 per cent of Democrats who hold negative views of him believe that he is a Muslim. The same survey showed that 61 per cent of voters view him as patriotic, compared with 76 per cent for Mrs Clinton and 90 per cent for Mr McCain.
Barack Obama attended a Muslim school in his youth. By sheer fact that his father — whether enthusiastically Muslim or not, still Muslim — was Muslim, renders his son, also, a Muslim in the perspective of Islam.
The operative, significant aspect here — Obama wants the Presidency of the U.S.A., he either knows these primary points or he’s lying about being impervious to them (and in that, by calling others who raise these points, liars) — is that he is a Muslim in the fullest sense of the theology of Islam. Thus, he’s Muslim to a great many people on the globe and it’s not complicated to understand how that conclusion is made.
Moreover, Barack Obama’s intentional selection of Jeremiah Wright to “learn” “Christianity” from is telling because what he’s been indoctrinated with is a false message that does it’s most concerted to defame Christ, Christianity and Judeo-Christian theology. If Barack was “agnostic” (so he’s said to claim in this article) “before” he exposed himself for twenty-plus years to Wright’s antithesis messaging, he certainly remains unredeemed if not continually blasphemous in claiming he’s “Christian,” as Wright does, also.
It’s not the greater humanity who is “lying” about Barack Obama and his beliefs (and probable intents as also motivations, based upon, if anything at all, his proven associations and their identified intents, motivations and beliefs, most of which are contrary to Christianity, Judeo-Christian theology and the United States as a place of “free men” functioning in a democracy), it’s not the observations of Obama that are somehow false or “unfair,” it’s not individuals who question what Obama is actually about — beyond the hype and showmanship — but what Obama is actually about that is the issue.
That he needs to silence individual opinion (nationwide or globally, because the internet on which he’s seeking to suppress opinion carries global opinion, is not limited to opinion by and from only U.S. residents, much less citizens and voters), calls into question what Obama is about, and grants greater credibility to those who have raised these issues about him: who is he, what are his (actual) beliefs, what theology influences him, what are this man’s political intents, what are his morals, his beliefs, who is the guy?
We can easily, readily view stage presentations and affable, mostly celebrity, performances from and by Obama. That tells us little other than he’s a somewhat talented performer with a booming enough voice that many people stop and listen to what he’s saying. The same was said about Adolf Hitler. But, many people today realize, as they did about Adolf, that Barack isn’t saying much they can support but he sure does speak well: the best, then, so far, that can be said about Barack Obama is that he’s a talented performer, and most of us by now know what Adolf’s grand performances amounted to.
Based upon what I’ve read and heard on the internet and in media from those enthusiastic about Barack Obama, they find him appealing not because they are Christians or believe in Judeo-Christian theology, but, rather, they deem Obama appealing because he does not challenge anyone from a Judeo-Christian theological perspective, that he avoids doing so. That same persona renders many people “popular” in a celebrity sense, but it does prove, if anything, that they are messaging an antithesis. Antithesis is appealing to some, but it does not represent Christianity and a Christian, and I refer to a Christian because that’s the pretense Obama attempts to apply to himself, yet is in the opposing process of the antithesis of that.
Same can be readily said about Jeremiah Wright, the misguided, lost “Rev. Pfleger” — both of whom represent as “good works” while defaming the body of Christ, just as candy offered to the vulnerable is the vehicle of leading them astray — and several other if not all the “advisors” Obama claims he has, what his influences, past and present actually are. They’re political influences and associations, they’re not “Christian” or those of Christianity.
Whatever Obama’s “religion” is, I’d say it’s somewhere around persistent Marxist-Political Operative. That he’s now having to scope the internet to attempt to suppress opinions is an indication that he’s not functioning with faith, hope and good intentions for the hopes and wishes of the “free man.”
Perhaps what Obama is actually busy about is establishing the Global Church of Creepy.
HamNation: Obama On Your Shoulder
Pope Benedict XVI, in a speech to European politicians in 2006, offered some instruction for the Catholic conscience: “As far as the Catholic Church is concerned, the principal focus of her interventions in the public arena is the protection and promotion of the dignity of the person, and she is thereby consciously drawing particular attention to principles which are not negotiable. Among these the following emerge clearly today: the protection of life in all its stages… recognition and promotion of the natural structure of the family… and the protection of the rights of parents to educate their children.”
Christian theology as it is identified by the Catholic Church advises against voting Catholics to support pro-abortion candidates and more, and, the Democratic Party is an active proponent by party platform alone of abortion on demand — including Obama and his dubious religious views, influences and associations but not limited to Obama, but extending and applying to all Democrats, by sheer party association (party association represents “membership” in that party platform — shared, accepted positions). Persons presenting as “Catholic” and yet involved in advocating for very primary principles that defy Christian theology as it is identified by the Catholic Church are the misleaders if not liars among our humanity.
Today, some of these can be seen in all walks of life and associated with just about all denominations who use the Christian, Jewish and Muslim theologies (and, several others) for and as socio-political tools, yet who defame if not utterly denigrate the theologies they assume to associate with.
Obama’s not going to silence opinions nor beliefs, regardless of how feverishly and elaborately he and his usefully misled work to try to do so.
