Saint Patrick may have been recognized for driving the snakes out of Ireland, but this past week one of them slithered back in. Obama is the personification of an elapid that is now without the appendages some believe the serpent that beguiled Eve in the Garden had possessed before it was made to slither upon the ground. That said, he has not shed the character of the personage incarnate in that first serpent.
Obama took time out from his attendance at the G8 Summit in Enniskillen to attack the Catholic Church and to deliberately attempt to undermine the authority of Archbishop Gerhard Muller, prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith.
Ian Dunn, writing for the Scottish Catholic Observer said, “During Mass at St. Andrew’s Cathedral, Glasgow, on Friday night [Archbishop Muller] said that ‘the Catholic school is vitally important … a critical component of the Church,’ adding that Catholic education provides young people with a wonderful opportunity to ‘grow up with Jesus.’” (“U.S. President Undermines Catholic Schools After Vatican Prefect Praised Them,” June 17, 2013)
But Obama sees Catholic schools as the bane to social stability and antagonistic toward his worldview and social order. He said, “If towns remain divided – if Catholics have their schools and Protestants have theirs, if we can’t see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to harden – that too encourages division and discourages cooperation.”
I am convinced that his words were carefully chosen and intended to undermine the authority of the Catholic Church while providing him a thin veneer of deniability.
Obama is deeply resentful of the stand the Catholic Church has taken against his health-care legislation. And true to his petulant, narcissistic sociopathy, he chose to lash out at the Catholic Church before the audience he did.
Obama had his educational purview shaped by the Marxist pedophile Frank Marshall Davis, Saul Alinsky and Jeremiah Wright. That does not mean we should allow his views to corrupt ours.
Catholic-school education remains one of the finest educations children can receive. I applaud the verbiage of the archbishop when he said, “Catholic education provides young people with a wonderful opportunity to grow up with Jesus.” Obama would rather have children from grades K through 5 to grow up with instruction about homosexuality. He would rather have children grow up as his daughters (according to the words from his mouth), learning about abortion and birth control devices. He wants children to grow up in failing schools with poorly educated teachers providing even less instruction than they themselves had received.
But for those of us who believe that the Word of God is final and that Christ-centered education is critical, the words of the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:33 are undeniable truth. Paul wrote, “Be not deceived: evil company corrupts good morals.” Having children brainwashed into believing they’re homosexuals and lesbians, emulating street thugs and graduating from high school with minimal reading, math and comprehension skills is not what we want for our progeny.
When it comes to education, more than ever the Word of God as written by the Apostle Paul is not an option – it is a mandate for Godly living. “Wherefore, come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord. …” (2 Corinthians 6:17).
There is something else troubling about Obama. He has made great pretense pursuant to his Irish ancestry. “The Trinity heritage company Eneclann … [claims] that Obama’s Irish heritage is better documented than that of other U.S. presidents including Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and even John F. Kennedy.” (“Michelle Obama and daughters trace their Irish roots at Trinity College during stay,” irishcentral.com, June 18, 2013)
It’s interesting that the Obamas would boast such heritage when – as I wrote in a recent column – he believes, “If [black] nationalism could create a strong and effective insularity, deliver on its promise of self respect, then the hurt it might cause well-meaning whites, of the inner turmoil it caused people like me, would be of little consequence.” (“Dreams From My Father: A Story of Race And Inheritance,” page 284) For those who miss the exact point he was making, he was saying that he would sacrifice his white mother and white grandparents on the altar of Black Nationalism.
I also wrote in the same article, “There resides within Obama a hatred of white people that explains in part why he is so conflicted. In his book ‘Dreams,’ he opines that, as was the case with Malcolm X, if he were able ‘he would purge the white blood from my veins’” (ppg. 101-102 paperback edition). Obama by his own admission, referred to blacks who dated whites and blacks who spoke without slang as ‘Uncle Toms.’ He by his own admission called black students who associated with white students ‘half-breeds.’”
Two observations remain. If blacks associating with whites make them “half-breeds” what does his ancestry make him? And if he, again by his own admission, abhors his “white blood,” why does he feel the need to boast about his Irish ancestry?
I must note that the Irish papers refused to call him the president, opting instead to refer to him as “the American politician.” Touché.
