"Mr. President? Really?"

Fr. Z, "Mr. President? Really?" (WDTPRS, February 6, 2014):
This morning The First Gay President addressed the National Prayer Breakfast. [UPDATE: Text HERE.]

Two take away lines:

“[T]he killing of innocents is never fulfilling God’s will.”

“[F]reedom of religion matters to our national security.”


To paraphrase Mary McCarthy, but only slightly:

Every word he says is a lie, including “and” and “the”.

"...I’m grateful not only because I was broke and the church fed me, but because it led to everything else. It led me to embrace Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. It led me to Michelle -- the love of my life -- and it blessed us with two extraordinary daughters. It led me to public service. And the longer I serve, especially in moments of trial or doubt, the more thankful I am of God’s guiding hand."

I guess I need to read Obama's autobio, since I am surprised he was broke.

But what struck me is this: "Christianity" as such has been redefined. And the Evangelically-originating National Prayer Breakfast is helping in that. Now it is Christian to be pro-abortion, pro-homsexuality, pro-universalism. And to not be is obviously unChristian.

Separatism used to seem freakish. More and more it is appearing to be a likely non-optional.

If you believe anything from the gaping mouth of that liar from the pit of hell, you've got to be a spawn of Satan.
