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.
