Who Obama Is, and Why He Is a Threat To Your Freedom

In public, Obama just seems to say all the right things. The news media, Democrat Party, and left-leaning Liberals just love him. Conservatives, on the other hand, disagree, of course, and claim that his outward message and calculated public image is a concentrated effort to hide his true identity and goals for America. So, what's this all about?


Who Obama associates with:

To understand Obama, we must first understand who Obama associates with. William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn should especially be noted:

Ayers and Dorhn are extremist radicals from the 1960's anti-war terrorist group the Weather Underground, and they are unrepentant in the bombings they were a part of. They disappeared in 1970 after a bomb designed to kill army officers in New Jersey accidentally destroyed a Greenwich Village townhouse. They turned themselves over to authorities in 1980. While the Weather Underground claimed 25 bombings, these characters were never prosecuted. Charges were dropped due to improper FBI surviellance...
Obama does some nice double talk and condemns the actions of the Weather Underground, however he remains good friends with two of them that remain unrepentant for their actions. They helped launch his political career. (Will the Media Report Obama's Terrorist Connection?, Newsbusters.org, 2/23/08)



Obama says, basically, "Oh, goshdarn those guys! They'll do the darnedest things!" As though radicalism is something to simply be shrugged off. Obama doesn't really care, of course, because he is also a radical. Consider the following.

What he has studied: Saul D. Alinsky

Recently, Barack's wife, Michelle, quoted from Alinsky's book, Rules for Radicals, which is infamous if for no other reason than that the dedication includes the following display of respect for a surprising character:

an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical . . . who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.



Yes, the Obama's chose to study, and quote from, a man who felt he owed at least some acknowledgement to the Devil for founding the practice of radicalism! And this from a couple who claim to be Christians?! Y'know, it's an interesting twist. Communists violently deny the existence of God, but apparently Socialists embrace the teachings, and follow the example of, Satan.


What he espouses: Socialism

Obama is a Socialist, by virtue of his political views and statements. One area where his Socialism is obvious, which should be truly repulsive -not to mention shocking- to Americans, were they not being brainwashed by the Liberal "news" media, is in his push for mandatory Preschool. The most effective programs that the Nazis, and Communists alike, ever instituted has been that of propagandizing the children. In a violent revolution, you would kill the adults and indoctrinate the children. In non-violent Communism (aka Socialism), you indoctrinate the children as soon as you get the chance, and wait for the parents to either die, or be put down by the radical youth that you have created. "Then," said Karl Marx:

I shall stride through the wreckage a creator!



In Conclusion

Friedrich Engels, the man who created Communism along with Karl Marx, said:

We do not promise any freedom, nor any democracy.



Socialism IS Communism! It is Communism won without bloodshed! It is socially engineered by creating artificial social strife (read: High gas prices due to Liberal Democrats disallowing drilling, etc), and then promising change; causing problems and then miraculously solving them because you were behind them!


Take a look at the world. How much of it is Communist? Large portions. Were those countries always that way? Of course not. Marx and Engels (and Lucifer, of course) created Communism in the early-mid 1800's, un-coincidentally at the same time that the Lord was establishing The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints here in America! So, how did Communist countries get that way? Through violent revolutions! Millions upon millions were murdered to pave the way for their anti-freedom, anti-God movement. Now, how much of the world is Socialist? An even greater portion. Do these people fare much better than those in Communist countries? Not much. They are still slaves to the whims of the government that claims to know what is best for its people. They do not have the freedoms that allow us to be Americans, those freedoms that are guaranteed us via the Constitution. And the worst part is that once you have lost your freedoms, whether to bloodshed or social engineering, you are a slave and cannot become free again except through the methods that were necessary to obtain our freedom in the first place: bloodshed! If we let it go now, it will be very, very difficult to get it back.


Just like Karl Marx, Obama believes that HE knows what is best for YOU. His ilk (Liberals/Democrats) are behind everything that is destroying our country at this moment: gay marriage, activist judges, oppression of churches and religion, and the radical indoctrination of our youth.


IS THIS THE KIND OF CHANGE YOU WANT?

Apparently, Telling the Truth is Hate Speech

A website called "Recovering from Mormonism" has taken it upon themselves to re-post, for some reason, all the manure that was originally spread across exmormon.org. My favorite post, so far, is the one entitled, "Why I consider the mormon church *a hate group.*"

You are invited to read my comments in response to that post, here:


Be sure to leave your own form of *hate speech*

Get Your Facts Straight

The following two articles may be the most important things you will read concerning the gay "marriage" debate. They contain the facts needed to understand, and explain, why homosexual marriage is detrimental to our society, our culture, and religion in general.


Born That Way? Facts and Fiction about Homosexuality


The Divine Institution of Marriage





You may also wish to watch the following video that discusses Proposition 8. It is almost 30 minutes long, so if you can only watch for a few minutes, please skip to the 20 minute mark. You will find that the gay agenda's promise that "no one will be forced to perform gay marriages if they choose not to" is a lie, and that this has ALREADY HAPPENED!!! I believe that if the so-called news media didn't have their heads so far up Obama's backside, this would have been front page news!


Watch Prop 8 Video




We need to wake up and realize that the gay agenda does not want equality, as they suggest. They want superiority! They want to force social acceptance and full integration with mainstream culture despite the fact that every major religion has declared it a sin for thousands of years, despite the fact that 97-98% of America is not gay and that most Americans do not want it promoted as an acceptable practice in our culture! If this is allowed, the gay activists will have all they need to completely overhaul our society to their own desires. IT IS ALREADY HAPPENING! Instead of stating an honest case and allowing an honest vote, they have already forced the practice of gay marriages on the people of California against their will, they have already successfully sued the Methodist church in New Jersey for "discrimination," and it will not stop there!


Allowing Prop 8 to fail means that homosexuality will be taught as acceptable in public schools, as it is no doubt in many schools already. Even though no science supports the theory that gays are "born that way," it is being taught as such to our children in the name of "social justice." The intention being that it is okay to push this agenda based on a lie because in the end it will supposedly end discrimination against gays. IF YOU HAVE TO RESORT TO LIES TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS, THEN YOUR GOALS CANNOT BE BENEFICIAL TO SOCIETY!!!


Let's stop the madness, people! Read the documents above and find out how you are being swindled by the gay movement, and how much our society will suffer if we allow Prop 8 to fail!

Gays Speak Out, Spout Intolerance, Misunderstanding

I came across this article on a gay website called the Lavender Newswire. The following is the response I submitted to the comments on this article. They were submitted, but "awaiting moderation," so who knows if they will actually appear on the page. I just thought I would post them here so that at least SOMEONE would see them :)




RE: Comments by the Editors:


1. "It’s too bad they don’t believe in the Bible. If they did, they would have to follow the admonishment, “Judge not that ye be not judged.”


Mormons DO believe in the Bible, which is why they believe in the declarations of God that define homosexuality as a sin, as well as the other passages you guys forget to quote, that say that we should "judge righteous judgment (John 7:24)."



2. "I really do not understand why some people, and now the Mormon Church officially, want to impose their perception of civil marriage onto all of society. I understood the history of this country was based on..."


Well, if you actually ever read a history book, you will find that this country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, which for thousands of years have considered homosexuality a sin. It is GAYS that are seeking to "impose their perception of civil marriage onto all of society" by virtue of activist judges, since clearly the voice of the people was against it from the beginning.



3. "The court is not directing any faith to change or amend its practice or belief in marriage."


No, but it IS seeking to redefine an institution that has been in existence for thousands of years.




RE: Miscellaneous commenters:


1. "Bigots."


The Wikipedia entry for bigotry says:
"A bigot is a prejudiced person who is intolerant of opinions, lifestyles, or identities differing from his or her own." That also makes YOU a bigot, smart guy. I have said elsewhere that intolerance is shouting "Diversity!" in a crowded theater, but denying entrance to Christians and heterosexuals.



2. "Whatever you folks want to do in Zion (Utah) is your business. California is off limits."


Yeah, like the activists that would have forced this on California would think it prudent to stop there.



3. "terrorists in our own backyard that want to take away our freedoms"


No, gays DO NOT HAVE the freedom to marry, so nothing would be taken away.



4. "the LDS (Mormons)... are NOT non-profit"


Well, since no one in the leadership gets paid, who exactly profits? It couldn't be the millions of people the church helps with humanitarian efforts each year. (http://newsroom.lds.org/ldsnewsroom/eng/news-releases-stories/what-moves-mormons-during-emergencies), (http://lds.org/conference/talk/display/0,5232,23-1-851-18,00.html)



5. "Institutionalized racism until 1978."


Y'know, there is just as much mistrust and misinformation about Mormons from you folks as you tend to believe exists about gays amongst Mormons. You might want to read up on the issue of Blacks and the LDS Priesthood before you go spouting off. Here is a good place to start: http://fairlds.org/apol/ai080.html



6. "They are always alarmed when it comes to being criticized about their “cult like ways” "


Yeah, probably because we ARE a cult. Be sure to visit http://mormoncult.org to find out more!



7. "Most people do not trust the Mormons."


Nothing like a little bit of "virtual fact" (ie, opinion) to prove a point! Sure, we're human. But, I also know several organizations that are not owned by Mormons that PREFER Mormon employees because they know they CAN trust them.



8. "the greatest hipocrisy is thier interests in Las Vegas."


Right, because a city is either ALL evil, or not at all, right? No good people can exist in a city that has so much bad in it.



9. "marrying their 13 year girls to a 50 year old man is ok even without her consent in certain sects."


Those "certain sects" are not affiliated with the Mormon church in any way. Please see http://www.mormonsandpolygamy.org/



10. "The descendants of Brigham Young’s 55 wives will now lecture on the subject of marriage morality."


Because all 13 million-plus Mormons on the earth today are descendants of Brigham Young.



11. "Religious organizations have no right to foist their dogma onto others or into law. Period. This is not a theocracy."


Counter-point: NON-Religious organizations have no right to foist their dogma onto to others or into law. Period. This is not a Godless political system. Our country was FOUNDED on principles of Judeo-Christianity.



12. "Jefferson had things right centuries ago when he penned a religious freedom statute that kept church and state separate."


The separation of church and state was intended to keep Americans free from compulsory church attendance, such as that which the former-Brits-turned-Americans had been subjected to under the Church of England. It had nothing to do with voters being denied the right to vote according to their religious belief.



13. "I remember the strong and organized opposition the Mormon church had in the ’70s to the equal rights amendment to the US Constitution. Their arguments against it were reactionary and unfounded, e.g., “if it passes, people will be forced to use unisex public restrooms.” (The horror!) That amendment did not pass, and historians usually site the Mormon church’s highly organized efforts as a large factor in its defeat"


To begin with, the church has always strongly been in favor of women's rights. Utah was the FIRST state to allow women to vote, long before the ERA was proposed. Your "unisex bathroom" accusation is simply ungrounded. If you want to know what the church's stance was on the ERA, visit this webpage: (http://library.lds.org/nxt/gateway.dll/Magazines/Ensign/1980.htm/ensign%20march%201980.htm/frequently%20asked%20questions%20about%20the%20proposed%20equal%20rights%20amendment%20a%20closer%20look.htm?fn=document-frame.htm&f=templates&2.0)

Gay Marriage, Part 2

In my recent post, I addressed the issue of gay "marriage." Today, I was surprised to find this post by a fellow Mormon, who feels very strongly about this issue, too. Please read her post, and then proceed to my responses below:


  1. Homosexuality is NOT a civil rights issue!

    To begin with, the very issue of whether or not gay people are "born that way" is debatable. I can say this with certainty because I have lived in California for the past 18 years, and had a great many gay friends. I have had people try to convince me to "experiment" with it, and I have known people who have experimented with homosexual acts due to the pressure put on them by our mutual gay friends, who would otherwise not have done so. Regardless, there are obviously those who have felt homosexual attractions for as long as they can remember. Either way, let this one thing ring clear: Having a feeling does not validate the committal of any subsequent act! Many convicted criminals, particularly lifetime offenders, such as kleptomaniacs and pedophiles, also contend that they are only acting on feelings that they have had for as long as they can remember. What makes homosexuality any different? Because it's between two mutually consenting adults? Then, on those grounds, how can you justify the conviction of Armin Meiwes, the German cannibal who killed and ate a willing victim? We all have feelings, but there are some that should, and others that should not, be acted upon. The scriptures, and modern prophets, have made the distinction abundantly clear.


  2. Our Christian duty is to love the "despised... rejected... and vulnerable...

    ...But this does not require us to allow or promote actions which are contrary to the Gospel. Sure, the Savior loved the prostitute, but He also told her to "go [her] way and sin no more" (John 8:11).


  3. Yes, many gays will be offended by Proposition 8.

    Nephi says it best:
    And it came to pass that I said unto them that I knew that I had spoken hard things against the wicked, according to the truth; and the righteous have I justified, and testified that they should be lifted up at the last day; wherefore, the guilty taketh the truth to be hard, for it cutteth them to the very center. (1 Nephi 16:2)


    What is at the "very center" of the matter is
    that in the last days... men shall be lovers of their own selves... Without natural affection... lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God (2 Timothy 3:1-4)


    How can you argue with that? A homosexual in the LDS church has the following options: 1) Be chaste, or 2) Live a double life, or 3) Leave the church. The test, as described in scripture above, is: Which do you love more - pleasure or God?

    How does it come down to "pleasure or God?" Because our sexuality was given to us by God for two purposes: First and foremost, to create bodies for our Father's spirit children to inhabit; and second, for a pleasurable bonding experience for man and wife following marriage. Inasmuch as homosexual acts CANNOT perform the first and foremost purpose of sexuality, it exists solely as an act of pleasure.



  4. On "violated spirits" and censoring the pulpit.

    If you are attending church and feel that your spirit has been "violated," then I think you should do a check of your personal attitudes. Sure, our leaders sometimes make mistakes, but (pay attention here:) this particular issue has been addressed by the First Presidency, in no uncertain terms! Are you suggesting that our local leaders refrain from relaying to us messages from those individuals that we sustain as being called from God, simply because there might be a "significant minority" in the congregation who don't want to hear it? I believe there is a quote somewhere about how to recognize when you are on the road to apostasy...


  5. "The United Church of Christ... opens its arms to gay people.

    Yes, but they don't have a living prophet. But then, it sounds like that doesn't mean much to you anyway.

    And, for the record: the LDS church opens it's arms to gays, as well.
