I realize that is a strong statement, but I really don’t mean it as hyperbole. As I’ve been reading a biography on Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the impact of the Nazis on the German churches I see so many similarities with the Leftist shills in the U.S. today. The “German Christians” were the sanctioned “church” in Germany but obviously led by non-believers, just as the Leftist “churches” deny the essentials of the faith while reflexively propping up the current administration.
It is fascinating how quickly false teachers like Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie come out with the Democratic talking points. Obama’s mishandling of the Syria situation has been so severe that people have seriously wondered if he was doing it on purpose to reduce our standing in the world. Yet until Russia bailed him out, this is what we got from false teachers like Chuck:
There is a legitimate moral imperative for the international community to take limited military action that disrupts Syria’s ability to use weapons of mass destruction against civilian targets.
But after Putin “solved” the problem (assuming you are naive enough to trust Putin . . .and Assad . . .and that even if Assad gave up all of his WMDs that he couldn’t re-arm in 15 minutes . . . and that they couldn’t kill countless civilians with traditional means . . . and so on) we immediately get an about face from false teacher Chuck that just happens to have all the Democratic talking points.
President Obama addressed the nation regarding the on-going crisis in Syria tonight. He spoke in deeply moral terms about the world’s responsibility to protect civilians from the use of chemical weapons and other WMD. Barack Obama is no George W. Bush.
So as long as Assad kills the children with knives, as Obama and Chuck support via unrestricted, taxpayer-funded abortions, things are fine. Or guns. Or nearly anything else. Just don’t use chemicals!
And it wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t blame Bush — several times!
The current president has argued that a military response is needed to deter Syria from further attacks against civilians using chemical weapons but at the same time we now know the president and Secretary of State John Kerry have been negotiating with the Russians on a proposal to place all of Syria’s WMD under international control so they can be destroyed – a long sought goal.
Oh, it was totally a long sought goal — provided that you consider Russia’s several days old offer “long sought.” It was so long sought that Chuck forgot to mention it when calling for war less than two weeks ago and it was never mentioned by Obama until after Russia made the offer.
President Obama is seeking with intention to avoid military conflict as a first resort whereas President Bush used the pretext of 9/11 to invade Iraq, a nation that had nothing to do with those terrible terrorist attacks.
More Bush-blaming. Hey, champ, Obama has been in office almost 5 years now. Time to take responsibility. Oh, and Bush has been proved right on all his reasons on Iraq, and he had the support of the UN, and dozens of countries and loads of Democrats like Hillary on record denouncing Hussein.
At the same time, President Obama is honoring the democratic institutions of our nation by calling on Congress to debate the path forward in Syria. Balance is being restored between the three co-equal branches of government – balance under assault since the start of the imperial presidency.
Yes, once he realized that even most people on the Left (except fake Christian leaders like Chuck) opposed him he punted over to Congress.
And what hypocrisy to pretend that Obama hasn’t run roughshod over the balance of powers! Once again, it is Bush’s fault.
The worldwide Christian community has been nearly unanimous in arguing against military action in Syria.
Uh, except for Chuck, in his editorial above.
There are many good arguments not to engage in this conflict but I believe very seriously that the world does have a responsibility protect those who cannot protect themselves.
Unless they are in their mother’s wombs or even 10% left in side the mother (i.e., “partial-birth abortion,” aka infanticide), in which case Obama and Chuck want the government to fund the destruction of the unwanted human beings.
And it would be fascinating for Obama and his “German Christians” to explain why we need to arm Syrians (not to mention Al Qaeda, but that’s a different issue) with assault weapons to protect them from their own government but they want to impose gun restrictions here in the U.S. Presumably the answer is that we can totally trust our government and they would never turn on us with the power of the IRS, or eavesdropping, or more . . .
Don’t be fooled by the politics-disguised-as-religion fake churches led by people like Chuck. Study the Bible all you can and follow the real Jesus, and stand up for the truth.
Side note: A great analysis of Obama’s speech: As confused as his policy. Too bad he isn’t as eager to get to the truth on Benghazi.
And then almost in the same breath, Obama then acknowledged that a diplomatic solution had arisen, despite two weeks of beating the drums for war. Just after arguing that only the US military could solve the problem, Obama said that he was turning to Russia for a potential solution. Not only that, but he also announced that he had asked Congress to hold off on a vote to authorize military action until the Russia and UN track played itself out. This change was necessitated by the fumbling of his Secretary of State, even though Obama himself had just called the UN “hocus pocus.”
So what was Obama asking of the American people? Nothing. What new and convincing information did Obama bring to the American people? None. What new argument did Obama make to shift the strong momentum against military action? He had none. There was nothing new in this speech from Obama that hadn’t been argued at length in his six broadcast-network interviews the day before, or that his White House and State Department hadn’t offered in the previous week before the speech.
And most oddly, despite having the attention of the nation on the eve of 9/11, Obama never bothered to mention either the devastating terrorist attacks from twelve years ago or the sacking of the Benghazi consulate on the previous anniversary, which took place on Obama’s watch.
