ALBUQUERQUE — President Obama expounded Tuesday on the reasons he became a Christian as an adult, telling a group of residents here that he was a “Christian by choice” and that “the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead – being my brother and sister’s keeper.”

Mr. Obama, who has been criticized by conservative pundits who have questioned his Christian faith, gave a lengthy discourse on it in response to a woman who said she had three “hot topic questions” for him. The first was: “Why are you a Christian?” The second was on abortion — the president said it should be “safe, legal and rare” — and her third was whether Mr. Obama would accept her husband’s chili pepper. He said he would.

Wow! Obama professing to be a Christian while violating some of the biggest tenants of Christianity. Simply incredible. I guess the liberals and the MSM will stop attacking Christians now. If the Dear Leader is a Christian then it must be Ok then. What Bullsh*t.

“I’m a Christian by choice,” the president said. “My family, frankly, they weren’t folks who went to church every week. My mother was one of the most spiritual people I knew but she didn’t raise me in the church, so I came to my Christian faith later in life and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead. Being my brothers and sisters’ keeper, treating others as they would treat me, and I think also understanding that Jesus Christ dying for my sins spoke to the humility we all have to have as human beings, that we’re sinful and we’re flawed and we make mistakes and we achieve salvation through the grace of God.” LINK

So Obama openly professes to be a Christian “by choice.” My question then is what was he BEFORE he saw the light or the um… polling data. He claims the “Precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to him in terms of the kind of life he wanted to lead.” Well where did he have this epiphany, in Rev. Wright’s church? A church he attended regularly, yet stated he didn’t have much knowledge of the teachings found there. I get it now. And just remember how George Bush was constantly mocked for his Christian beliefs.

Look- Obama’s poll numbers are about as low as they can get. He is trying to bump up his standings with more conservative and independent voters and he is willing to say anything, even fabricate his religious background to do so. This is a guy who has skipped more religious services as President than he has attended. Strange that he’s trying to now claim to be a card-carrying Christian.

I don’t know what this guy really believes and I really don’t much care. But he lies constantly and usually for no reason. So I don’t believe a word of this. If you attend a church people will identify you as a congregant so you don’t have to run around telling people what faith you are. This guy is trying to do just that. He was a member of Rev. Wright’s church because of its black liberation theology, not for its Christian beliefs. He is notoriously pro-abortion, pro-gay rights and just about everything else that is ANTI-CHRISTIAN, so again violating major tenants of the faith makes me doubt anything he says. It’s pretty disgusting if you think about it. I just think it’s funny how the liberal intelligentsia will now give him a pass for being a Bible-thumping Christian while ridiculing real Christians on a daily basis.

    He’s a “Christian” like Nancy Pelosi is a “Christian.” Feel free to abort that child when you see its head crowning, right Barry? Tool.

  2. Randal Graves says:

    Do unto others as you would have them do unto you….unless you’re gay.

  3. Mrs. Crankipants says:

    “Christian by choice.”
    Is there another kind? Is someone tying people up somewhere and forcing them by gunpoint to be Christians?

  4. ajdshootist says:

    Thats not going to please his Muslim Friends,oh wait the
    Koran says its OK to lie about your faith if its to your advantage!

  5. Bob G. says:

    Maybe he’s CHRISTIAN BY PROXY?

    Or perhaps he gets his christianity by OSMOSIS.

    Either way…it won’t wash.
    Not here…not at the Pearly Gates.
    (someone needs to clue him in on that)

    Good post.
    Stay safe.

  6. Ferrell Gummitt says:

    The man not only supports the killing of unborn children he supports partial birth abortion. Now tell me where in the bible or in any Christian Tenet does that say that makes one a Christian.

  7. Rick says:

    What part of “Thou Shall Not Kill.” does Obama not understand? He supports partial birth murder

  8. C/A says:

    Randall- You really are a typical liberal. You take and distort what others say so it fits into your perception or illusion of what they actually say. I never, EVER said that gay people are anything less than human. That’s absurd. I do however, as do MILLIONS of other Americans and MILLIONS of people of faith around the world have a problem with their chosen lifestyle.

    YOUR President claims to be a follower of said Christian faith. Yet he openly violates its fundamental beliefs at every turn. You have a problem with me but not him. That makes you a sterotypical liberal. You’ll excuse the messiah but me? I’m a hater.

    I subscribe to fundamental Christian teachings and beliefs. I don’t march in lockstep with every one of them but then again who does?

    By the way where does it say in Christianity to treat everyone equally? In fact I would say Christian teachings are the direct opposite. As homosexuality is clearly a violation of Christian (and just about every other religions) beliefs it is therefore sinful. Sinners are not treated “equally” in any respect unless they repent of their sin.
    If you don’t agree then you can find another religion or start your own like L. Ron Hubbard. He’s right up your alley.

    • Randal Graves says:

      First off, homosexuality is not a choice, but you typical holier-than-thou Republicans think it is.

      “I subscribe to fundamental Christian teachings and beliefs.” Look at me, I’m so righteous. Your Lord, Jesus Christ, walked in the footsteps of the most undesirable people of his time; you tread on those same people and treat them as lesser beings by not giving them the same rights. Why are you so afraid of homosexuals? Are you afraid if you treat them as equals and give them the same rights that their homosexuality will rub off on you? If so, go back to the Middle Ages; we don’t need your kind around here.

      Stop trying to convince yourself that you such a Christian; you’re a hypocritical “Christian” who uses his faith when it suits him. Why don’t you act like a Christian and try to bring people together instead of the polarizing factor that you always seem to be?

      And I don’t excuse Obama but I don’t really get a chance to converse with him. If I did, I’d let him knows exactly how I feel.

      • Mrs. Crankipants says:

        Usually I shy away from controversy and just go for the cheap laughs, but I have to say I agree with Randal, homosexuality is not a choice. Who in their right mind would choose a lifestyle that is not accepted by a large part of our society?

        My father-in-law built and painted sets for the theater teacher in his high school, and they became friends. It was no secret that she was gay, this was in the late 1930s. When she found out he was getting married, she gave him the keys to her cabin in the Poconos for his honeymoon.

        Maybe it was a simpler time, but I doubt my father-in-law (a devout Catholic) gave much thought to his teacher being gay or that she may be violating any Christian beliefs because she lived with another woman. People were more civil and respectful of others back then, something I for one, would love to see make a comeback. Just my double pennies.

      • C/A says:

        PS- To liberals “bring people together” means that conservatives and Christians give up their beliefs and adopt liberal ideology. It is never liberals who accept others point of view and come together. What horsesh*t. Why don’t you liberals go sell that sh*t to Muslims? Ask them to “Come together” by not building a victory Mosque near Ground Zero?
        Oh no, can’t do that. We can’t stand up to the Muslims, they may get violent. Once again it’s the Christians who must compromise and be sensitive to Muslim demands.

        We can come together. All you have to do is accept MY values and beliefs just like you do for homosexuals, Muslims, socialists, wack-o environmentalists, 911 truthers, black liberation theology believers and every other fringe belief system that liberals embrace and accomodate.
        But that will never happen because liberals need a scape goat. Christians and conservatives are the only group that it is safe to bash. Pretty sad. Blame Bush. Blame FOX news. How’s that working for you?

      • Randal Graves says:

        “homosexuals….and every other fringe belief system”

        This is why you’re a bigot.

  9. Old NFO says:

    Proxy Christian is right… And ADJ is right…

  10. C/A says:

    Randall- Ok so loving another is not a choice? Then I guess hating someone isn’t either. If you can say that some people were born with a pre-disposition to LOVE someone then the opposite is true that some people were born with a pre-disposition to HATE other people. So avowed racists shoul be given a pass because they were born to hate certain other people.

    It doesn’t work that way. We are socialized not programmed to love or hate. There is no “Gay” gene as you may hope.

    Your hatred for religion would be easier to understand if it wasn’t so anti-Christian. Like I said I don’t care what people do in private but don’t ask me to condone it. If you have a problem with that that puts you squarely in the minority.

    I don’t accept the homosexual agenda like millions of other people. That’s my right to disagree with them. I don’t go out of my way to treat them any differently than anyone else. In fact I treat them with more respect than you treat me. You hate me because of my beliefs. That’s pretty sad. The fact that anyone dare believe something you don’t approve or believes drives you batshit. Your pseudo-intellectual arguments have no credibility as you are wrong on just about every issue.

    I don’t hate anyone except child predators and murderers and rapists. I have never discriminated against anyone in my life. I am a Christian and I don’t have to prove it to you or anyone else. You slander and ridicule my beliefs at every turn. Yet these are the same beliefs espoused by the majority of faiths in this world. It must be tough not fitting in. You are representative of the lunatic left that can’t win because of the strength of your beliefs.

    The fact that your belief system, on full display right now is being soundly rejected by people forces you into personal attacks just like the politicians who are about to lose their seats in Nov. Pathetic.

    • Randal Graves says:

      I don’t hate you; you’re just a bigot; and it’s not name calling when it’s true. You want to treat gays differently in society; that’s called discrimination, dummy.

      “I have never discriminated against anyone in my life.” Keep trying to convince yourself. It’s not a lie if you believe it.

      “forces you into personal attacks” – but I’m the lunatic left.

      You’re a fraud dude, total fraud.

      • C/A says:

        If I’m a bigot what does that make you? Your open hatred of Christians AND your attitude toward those who don’t see things your way surely puts you squarely in that category as well. Ooops! So I hate gays and you hate Christians. Talking to you is like clapping with one hand.
        You find it so easy to name call those who don’t believe what you do while castigating ME as intolerant. Pretty funny. For the record I’ve never called a homosexual person a name unless they cut me off in traffic.
        I’m a bigot for following my beliefs, beliefs common to MILLIONS in MULTIPLE faiths. I’ll just have to live with it. Your passionate defense of the homosexual lifestyle is duly noted.

      • Randal Graves says:

        But the problem is I’ve never said I wasn’t a bigot; I’ve never said that I didn’t agree with some of the teachings of the Catholic faith. I’m not afraid of what I am. I’m not afraid to have some of my beliefs labeled as “liberal” or unconservative.

        I can’t stand the fact that the Catholic church is intolerant of homosexuality, especially when they have so many of homosexuals “leading” their faithful. Here’s the kicker: I’ll bet I attend and openly participate in Sunday Mass much more than you do and have a better grasp on the Christian (Catholic, if you’re Catholic) faith than you do. But I don’t feel the need to tell the blogosphere “Hey, look at me, I’m a Christian and must do what my religion has taught for 2,000 years” all over the internet. I just don’t agree with everything they “preach” to me. Of the 52 Sundays in a year, how many of those do you attend church and actively participate? We don’t even have to include the holy days that don’t fall on a Sunday.

        And just because MILLIONS of people share the same beliefs, it doesn’t make them right. There were millions of Nazi’s, weren’t there?

  11. Wyatt Earp says:

    I occasionally stare at a hot guy’s ass. Does that make me ghey?

  12. C/A says:

    “I’ve never said that I didn’t agree with some of the teachings of the Catholic faith”.

    I have.
    I have strong disagreements with the Church on a variety of issues, for example the death penalty hence my choice to abstain from Mass.

    “I can’t stand the fact that the Catholic church is intolerant of homosexuality, especially when they have so many of homosexuals “leading” their faithful”.

    So take it up with them not me. Your issues man, not mine.

    “I’ll bet I attend and openly participate in Sunday Mass much more than you do and have a better grasp on the Christian (Catholic, if you’re Catholic) faith than you do”.

    So your a hypocrite. I am Catholic. But unlike you I don’t go to Mass regularly because I have strong disagreements with many of the teachings. I identify myself more as a Christian any more than a Catholic in large part because of their handling of the abuse and other scandals.

    “But I don’t feel the need to tell the blogosphere “Hey, look at me, I’m a Christian and must do what my religion has taught for 2,000 years” all over the internet”

    Really? What was that? Your just a “Cafeteria Catholic”. You pick and choose what you WANT to believe. And you have the gall to criticize anyone else’s beliefs.

    Since you are such an expert on being Catholic then you understand the need for Confession. You also understand the stipulations on receiving the Eucharist. After all you spend so much time at Mass.

    • Randal Graves says:

      Finally, you admit it. you’re almost EXACTLY LIKE ME; except I don’t hide behind my religion like you do.

      Actually, I’m not a hypocrite. I don’t throw out my “Christian Faith” every time I have to defend one of my beliefs (the way you do with your anti homosexual equality).

  13. C/A says:

    Lest we forget the “Christians as Nazis” line. The height of liberal hate speech. Saw that one coming. Shameful.
    Those who stand for nothing will fall for anything.

    • Randal Graves says:

      Why are you such a douchebag? I never called Christians Nazis. I compared Nazis to your “MILLIONS of people share the same beliefs” statement.
