Does Obama Distort the Bible?

Posted by thebosun on June 24, 2008

Obama has said a lot of things about Christians, gun owners, and middle Americans.  He claims that America in not a Christian country, and now James Dobson points out that Barry Millhouse Obamanation is distorting the Bible and pushing a “fruitcake interpretation” of the Constitution. 

The criticism, to be aired Tuesday on Dobson’s Focus on the Family radio program, comes shortly after an Obama aide suggested a meeting at the organization’s headquarters here, said Tom Minnery, senior vice president for government and public policy at Focus on the Family.

The conservative Christian group provided The Associated Press with an advance copy of the pre-taped radio segment, which runs 18 minutes and highlights excerpts of a speech Obama gave in June 2006 to the liberal Christian group Call to Renewal. Obama mentions Dobson in the speech.

“Even if we did have only Christians in our midst, if we expelled every non-Christian from the United States of America, whose Christianity would we teach in the schools?” Obama said. “Would we go with James Dobson’s or Al Sharpton’s?” referring to the civil rights leader.

Dobson took aim at examples Obama cited in asking which Biblical passages should guide public policy – chapters like Leviticus, which Obama said suggests slavery is OK and eating shellfish is an abomination, or Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, “a passage that is so radical that it’s doubtful that our own Defense Department would survive its application.”  Source: Dobson accuses Obama of ‘distorting’ Bible

It certainly appears to me that Barry has a screw loose.  But, that is my opinion and mine alone.  I’ll let you arrive at your own conclusions.  Does he or doesn’t he distort the bible?  Does he or doesn’t he push a “fruitcake intepretation” of the Constitution?

Why do I call Obama “Barry Millhouse Obama?”  Mark Levin coined that name.  I support Mark and take the lead from our other liberal presidential candidate, John McCain, to change the name to protect the innocent and the guilty.

Senator John McCain apologized profusely today for comments made by radio host Bill Cunningham who was introducing him at an event in Cincinnati.  Cunningham referred to the Illinois Senator three times as “Barack Hussein Obama.”  (Don’t want to piss off John Sidney McCain III)  Source: McCain apologizes

    Obama: Dobson Is ‘Making Stuff Up’

    Quote:
    Candidate Obamanation is accusing James Dobson of division ‘for his own purposes’ after he said Obama ‘distorted’ the Bible….Speaking to reporters on his campaign plane before landing in Los Angeles, Obama said the speech made the argument that people of faith, like himself, “try to translate some of our concerns in a universal language so that we can have an open and vigorous debate rather than having religion divide us.”

    Obama added, “I think you’ll see that he was just making stuff up, maybe for his own purposes.”
