Much has been made of Rick Santorum’s recent comments about Obama’s bad theology. The media has tried to turn it into Santorum questioning Obama’s Christianity. This is odd since the media at the same time is attacking Santorum for his Christianity. Apparently Democrat brand Christianity is fine.
But this got me thinking, isn’t Obama a theocrat? Obama definitely believes in the religion of Global Warming. How can we forget Obama’s speech that generations from now people will look back and see his Presidency as the moment that the oceans would stop rising and the planet would begin to heal? And Obama has accomplished his religious purpose by stifling American energy production, funneling billions of dollars to “green” energy, and engineering a takeover of a large portion of the US auto industry. No where is federal ownership of private companies or green energy subsidies in the constitution. These are things that Obama has done under the loose legislative framework of the stimulus package and TARP.
What about Obama’s belief in social justice? Obama’s presidency is a prime example of liberation theology in action and the search for the religious concept of social justice. Obama has taken Christ’s commands to give to the poor, help the afflicted and needy, and he has turned those things into federal responsibilities mandated by law. No longer must someone tithe or give in order to be charitable. Obama, like the Presidents before him, has turned the federal government into the largest charitable organization on the planet.
Obama invoked God when it came to his housing bill. He indicated that God wants the federal government to provide jobs to people. Obama unwittingly danced around a conservative idea of self-sufficiency while promoting his bill as God’s will.
Unlike Bush, who used faith based organizations to defray costs of social programs, Obama has leveraged the government’s relationship with faith based organizations to infiltrate them with his own social justice theology. Obama now holds these institutions hostage by threatening them with fines and forcing closures of charities who don’t obey the radical liberal theology. The unholy infiltration of religious institutions by the religious left has led to things like closures of Catholic orphanages. This is all part of the Obama religion.
When it comes to taxes, Obama famously misquoted Jesus, saying that to those whom much is given, much will be required. Of course, Jesus may have had spiritual things in mind. But Obama’s interpretation is that people who have a lot (because if you have wealth it must have been given to you) should pay more in taxes according to Scripture.
Early on in Obama’s Presidency, CBS noted that Obama invoked Jesus Christ far more often than evangelical Christian President George W. Bush did. Obama invoked God several times in his prayer breakfast speech, crediting God for his inspiration on everything from Obamacare, which forces Christians to pay for abortion, to Dodd-Frank.
Obama is a global warming believing social justice Christian, and he has tailored his governmental policies around that. Included in Obama’s religious view of social justice is a brand of social equality for women that demands that contraception and abortion be provided by employers, even if the employers are religious institutions. Access to abortion at no cost to the mother is a less advertised plank of mainstream liberation theology. Don’t be fooled by his lack of explicit rhetoric on the issue, Obama’s theology inspires his determination on providing free federal abortion more than it does any piece of Wall Street regulation.
So why are we scared of Rick Santorum? Don’t be fooled into thinking that it is because Santorum is the theocrat. It is because Santorum is not a liberation theocrat. Santorum does not believe that the government should redefine marriage. Santorum does not believe that the federal government should provide equality of circumstances and end the perceived societal oppression of blacks and women. Santorum is much closer to the brand of Christianity that authored the first amendment, not Obama’s brand that seeks to overturn it. He believes that baby murder should be illegal, not free and equally distributed.
Once upon a time, the GOP agreed with Santorum. Today we are too afraid of Obama’s faithful followers and their witch hunts. GOP candidates are refusing to speak up for personal freedom, responsibility, and the lives of the unborn because they see Santorum burning at the stake. In fact, some establishment GOP’ers are standing along side the liberation faithful, tossing sticks on the fire to prove their own loyalty to the social liberal faith.
Make no mistake, 2012 is all about religion. Will we continue to have freedom of religion and self determination? Or will we all be forced to become worshipers of Obama’s God, even more so than we are already.
