Two prominent Americans — an Eminent Social Scientist and the President of the United States — decided to answer the question: How have America’s churches failed the poor? Americans give to Religion 82.5 Billion Dollars Annually.

Their answer was one deeply congenial to the progressive mind:

 

 “They’ve been too obsessed with the culture war.”

 

“Over the last 30 years,” Harvard’s Robert Putnam told The Washington Post, “most organized religion has focused on issues regarding sexual morality, such as abortion, gay marriage, all of those. I’m not saying if that’s good or bad, but that’s what they’ve been using all their resources for … It’s been entirely focused on issues of homosexuality and contraception and not at all focused on issues of poverty.”

 

President Obama’s version, delivered when he shared a stage with Putnam at Georgetown University, was nuanced but similar in thrust: “Despite great caring and concern,” the president remarked, when churches pick “the defining issue” that’s “really going to capture the essence of who we are as Christians,” fighting poverty is often seen as merely “nice to have” compared to “an issue like abortion.”

 

It would be too kind to call these comments wrong; they were ridiculous. Not only because (as Putnam acknowledged) believers personally give abundantly to charity, but because institutionally the churches of America use “all their resources” in ways that completely belie the idea that they’re obsessed with culture war.

 

As Mark Hemingway of The Weekly Standard pointed out, “Even the most generous estimates of the resources devoted to pro-life causes and organizations defending traditional marriage are just a few hundred million dollars.” Whereas the budgets of American religious charities and schools and hospitals and other nonprofits are tabulated in the tens of billions. (Indeed, as Bloomberg View’s Megan McArdle noted, some of that money — from Catholic sources — paid Obama’s first community-organizer salary.)

While Israel Terrorize Christians Republicans, Fox News And Evangelicals Accuse President Obama of Persecuting Christ!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 23, 2015 by sheriffali

There are a few things Americans have learned over the past couple of years about the evangelical right. Among their many claims is that they are under heavy assault and face persecution because they are not allowed to rule by theocratic edict. They also persist in accusing President Obama, a Christian, of leading a ferocious assault on not only Christianity, but the religion’s namesake Jesus Christ.

 

They have also demonstrated their primary loyalty is to Israel, a nation they claim President Obama hates and throws under the proverbial bus because Benjamin Netanyahu is not allowed to dictate America’s foreign policy. If one believed everything Christian extremists claimed, they are being viciously slaughtered at home and abroad for their religion as well as their devotion to Israel because it is opposed to their shared religious enemy Islam.

 

What the evangelical right never, never ever, talks about is the persecution, barbarism, and hatred targeting Christians at the hands of Israeli Jews in the Holy Land and it leads one to wonder if America’s neo-Christians are using President Obama as a surrogate for the Israelis targeting Christians for persecution.

 

Recently, the evangelical right’s claim that President Obama persecutes them was due to his historically accurate claim that Christians should temper their hatred and war-rage against the Muslim religion because throughout greatest human atrocities in throughout world history was done in the name of Christ.

 

Specifically President Obama said that as Christians, “We have no right to get on our high horse and think persecution is unique someplace else,” and that “we should remember that people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.” The President’s remarks were not well-received by the evangelical right and he incited more rage when he said he was “concerned about less than loving” Christians during the White House Easter breakfast. That was twice in a very brief period of time that the President violated an unspoken American law prohibiting anyone, pundit or politician, from uttering a negative word about American neo-Christianity; even if it is truthful and historically verifiable.

 

The Christian right attacked the President for “throwing Christ under the bus” and inciting a war against Christians with the same intensity they accuse him of attacking and throwing Israeli Jews under the bus. Their twisted religious logic is that Obama attacks Christians and Israel to prop up the Islamic religion Islam because both groups consider all Muslims a deadly enemy.

 

It is curious then, that a coalition of Muslims and Christians have called on the United Nations and the World Court to intervene and prosecute Israeli Jews for religious hate crimes, persecution, and terrorist attacks on both Christians and Muslims while the evangelical right condemns Obama for not supporting Israel.

IS GOD REAL? What I saw while in a Coma!

“You may ask me how I know my God is real

You may doubt the things I say and doubt the way I feel,

But I know my God is real today and will always be

I can feel His Hand in mine, and that’s enough for me!”

Megyn Kelly and Fox News, Republicans and their Trolls spend their night and day, casting blame on President Obama for the world that was turned upside down by Bush and Cheney.

George W Bush and Dick Cheney capsized the stability of the world and it is going to take a decade or two before the world is again, right side up!

 

Megyn Kelly, Fox News and Republicans Preaching Jesus and claiming to be Patriots while being bankrupt of both! Spending their night and day, yes, night and day, blaming President Obama for all that ails America, while claiming that they are not racists, they just seem to have a different standard for a 50% Black President.

 

Obama by no means is a perfect man, but then again, we are all fallible and imperfect, however, as a person who is the CEO of an International Company that operates in over a dozen countries, I can attest to the fact that we in America are a long way from the doom and gloom we were tossed into by the previous Administration.

 

The American people on the other hand are justified in their majority reluctance to be involved with any war, but then at the same time they too blame Obama for the instability of the World. We must not fail to forget that a great majority of the American people are just plain uninformed, brainwashed or are divided by Political Party, Ideology and frankly, just plain ignorant. 83% didn’t have a clue where Ukraine is located, many thought it was within one of the States inside of America, imagine that for a moment.

 

We are the only country in the world where Six [6] major Corporations own the 1,500 News Papers; 1,100 Magazines; 9,000 Radio Stations; 1,500 Television Stations and the 2,400 Publishers.

 

News Anchors and News Hosts no longer have a mind of their own, they bow to their Corporate Masters, some bend all the way and others bend a little less. Nevertheless, the News, be it Television, Print or Radio they are about creating commotion, pitting one against the other to increase viewership that enhances their advertising and their Corporate Bosses laugh all the way to the Bank, while 98% of Americans are killing each other verbally out of just plain stupidity.

GUNS & GOD: “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you, I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” [John 14:27]

My words to you – “Take up thy cross and follow Me,” but you have taken up Guns and now you have taken Guns into My Church. Do you still follow Moses Law “an eye for an eye,” or My words, “If thou spike thee on the right cheek turn to him the left?”

 

“Do not take the name of the Lord Thy God in vain, for those that live by the sword shall die by the sword. You cannot be with Me if you do not give heed to My words.”

 

It seems a total contradiction on your way to Church to be carrying the Bible in one hand and a Gun in the other. God, Christ, Bible, Guns, Christian are only words, what matters “are your deeds.”

 

Do your security, faith and eternity lie in the Jesus Christ or in the barrel of a Gun? The Jihadists protect the Quran as an endangered species; they read it; they wrap it in fine linen; they tuck it away safely and in the name of Allah [God] they kill innocent children, women and men.

 

Do we do the same? Read the Bible; put it in a clean place; take it to church; kneel down and pray, all the while carrying one or more Guns, ready to kill your fellow human being, made by the same God you profess to believe in? We are high and mighty proclaiming God in Christ; calling ourselves Christians; and at the same time overloaded with prejudice; hate; discrimination; always invoking the Constitution and being Patriots.

 

God, Christ and Love is indivisible! If you are willing to kill, hate, allow yourself to be prejudice, discriminate, then, you are most certainly bankrupt of Christ and Patriotism.

 

The more intertwined and entwined you are with Religion, the farther away you are from God, because, God has never been and will never be a Religion!

GETHSEMANE TEARS!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 17, 2014 by sheriffali

“To a more peaceful and loving world”

The hour had come and the tears begun
He stood His ground and did not run,
God in the flesh facing death
The Almighty had no regret

With blood of sweat for our expiation
He chose to save us from damnation,
What did Jesus see through His tear filled eyes?
With pangs that made Him cry

He did no wrong, His heart had no avarice
Do we comprehend His penitential sacrifice?
His miracles so great on water He peregrinate
This He did to save us from hell and Hades gate

A crown of thorns and leather striking His back
He carried the cross to save us from the dark,
On the cross God’s precious and loving Son
Eloi, Eloi, the price is paid and now it is done…

JESUS CHRIST APRIL 17 2014
“No greater love is there than to lay down one’s life for another.” [JESUS CHRIST] Labor to help others and strive to encourage them!  The Lord laid down His life so we can rise again. If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. Those that are truly forgiven are anxious not to offend again – this is possession of “Justification.”

 

Let us this 25th Day of December 2013, spiritually go down to Bethlehem, and;

In the company with the wondering shepherds and adoring Magi, let us see Him who was born King of Kings, for we by faith can claim an interest in Him.

 

Jesus is Jehovah incarnate, our Lord and our God, and yet our brother and friend; let us adore and admire, Immanuel, God with us in our nature, in our sorrow, in our life work, in our punishment, in our grave, and now with us, or rather we with Him, in resurrection, ascension, triumph, and Second Advent splendor.
