Rev. Barry’s less-than-truthful sermon from the gov’t-sponsored Church of Obama

Rev. Barry’s less-than-truthful sermon from the gov’t-sponsored Church of Obama

I’ll come right out and say it — Barack Obama is more of a phony than all the collective surgically enhanced bust lines in all of Hollywood.

During the most recent National Prayer Breakfast (via WhiteHouse.gov), Obama took it upon himself not only to advocate the existence of God, but also preached specific instructions on our collective relationship with The Almighty.

Along the way, the Reverend Barack also managed to completely and utterly smash the Eight Commandment with his questionable retelling of his early days in Chicago.

While stating Sacred Writ from Christianity and Judaism, Obama ensured that the followers of Mohammed were given equal time, often quoting from the Islamic Koran, a curious mixture of the Bible, Torah and Arabic pagan belief, specifically the divination of the mythological al-Djinni (Genies).

The Chief Executive of the United States publicly and officially stating such memorable lines such as:

  • Remember the admonition from the Book of Romans, which is especially fitting for those of us in Washington:  ‘Do not claim to be wiser than you are.’
  • Recall what we are first: All children of a loving God; brothers and sisters called to make His work our own.
  • Today, we profess the principles we know to be true.  We believe that each of us is ‘wonderfully made’ in the image of God.

Oddly enough, there has yet to be one single complaint from the likes of the Atheist Alliance of America, nor has there been a single lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Interesting, huh?

But I digress, the South-Side Sermonizer made a point of stating:

And here we give thanks for His guidance in our own individual faith journeys. In my life, He directed my path to Chicago and my work with churches who were intent on breaking the cycle of poverty in hard-hit communities there. I’m grateful not only because I was broke and the church fed me, but because it led to everything else.

Wow.

As a singular tear rolls down my cheek — he was broke and the church fed him.

As I now sniffle and wipe away that singular tear, I’m somewhat confused by The Washington Examiner exposé of September of 2012:

When leftist activist Jerry Kellman interviewed Obama for a community organizing job in Chicago, he asked Obama how he felt about living and working in the black community for the first time in his life.

Obama accepted the job but chose not to live among those he would be organizing.

Instead, he commuted 90 minutes each way daily from his apartment in Chicago’s famous [and affluent] Hyde Park to the Altgeld Gardens housing project where he worked.

In a separate article in the exposé series, the Examiner also cites that while in Chicago, Obama was also in the employment of the law firm of Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland for a solid decade.

But wait, there’s more …

While in the employ of Davis et. al., Barack Obama, Esq. was assigned as the lead attorney defending a millionaire Chicago slumlord.

Through Obama’s legal prowess, his client essentially won in court (ordered to pay a mere $50 fine), while 15 poor families were literally thrown out of their unheated apartments during a freezing winter.

Obama defended a Chicago slumlord and powerful political ally who was charged with a long list of offenses against poor residents. The defendant was the Woodlawn Preservation & Investment Corp. [WPIC], controlled by Bishop Arthur Brazier, a South Side Chicago preacher and political operator.

Brazier’s burgeoning real estate empire included a low-income housing project at 6223 South University. Today, MapQuest describes the Woodlawn neighborhood as “quaint and sedate.” But in the winter of 1994, it was a frigid hell.

Brazier was closely allied with Obama and his firm, not least because Davis was on WPIC’s Board of Directors. Davis was also the corporation’s registered agent, and he received the court summons when the city filed suit on the South University apartments.

Brazier’s WPIC had failed for nearly a month to supply heat and running water for the complex’s 15 crumbling apartments. On Jan. 18, 1994, the day the heat went off, Chicago’s official high temperature was 11 below zero, the day after it was 19 below.

Even worse, the residents were then ordered to leave the WPIC complex in the winter chill without the due process they would have been afforded by an eviction procedure.

In court documents reviewed by the Examiner, Daniel W. Weil, commissioner of Chicago’s Buildings Department, “slammed WPIC for multiple municipal code violations, including ‘failure to maintain adequate heat,’ failure ‘to provide every family unit with approved heating facilities,’ and ‘failure to provide adequate’ supplies of either hot or cold running water.”

Can he get an Amen!?

During the course of his National Prayer Breakfast speech, Obama did mention in passing the Catholic lay missionary Kenneth Bae (being held by the Communist regime of North Korea) and the Evangelical Protestant Minister Saeed Abedini (held by the Islamic Republic of Iran).

Both are in prison for evangelizing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

So what’s the take of the American Preacher-in-Chief regarding those who brutally repress the religious rights of others?

Even though to harm anyone in the name of faith is to diminish our own relationship with God.

Much like his logic of working for a living is actually a bad thing foisted on us by evil people, somehow Obama equates the oppression of others on the Faithful actually lessens our relationship with God.

Oh well, at least he didn’t blame Bush.
