Dennis Prager spent much of the first hour of his today’s radio show explaining about and interviewing callers regarding Mr. Obama’s religion. Apparently in an article in Time magazine, the writer had claimed that 25% of the Americans thought the president a Muslim, and 23% could not identify the president’s religious orientation.
Mr. Obama could hardly be called a Christian by his behavior as president. He could hardly be considered Christian for spending 22 years attending Jeremiah “Goddamn America” Wright’s parish in Chicago.
He can call himself a member of any religion. Leftwing politicians have long claimed some kind of affiliation with some Christian group…….usually something innocuous such as Episcopalian. How one expresses himself in his daily work….conversations, preachments, expressions of values, political action, sense of humor, anecdote telling, lecturing is much more telling.
We are told Obama has a religious advisor. Yet, he has many advisors. Most likely the majority tell the president what they think the president wants to hear.
How does he work his Christianity into his expression? He doesn’t.
He tells us this and that quaint thing about Islam. Child’s tales…..Sweet talk……He has no sense of humor anywhere, and does not talk much in anecdotes by style. He preaches when he speaks, and usually in a downward direction toward “his people”.
America is not his city lighting the top of any hill. Obama projects negativity when referring to the country he leads, even though, admittedly he reads off soothing words about it from time to time, but never utters any emotion to give example, except to carp about the Cambridge police department, the T-party, or the opponents of building a mosque adjacent to Ground Zero to celebrate Muslimism.
Which college or university should Obama have attended where he might have learned some respect for the American struggle? Are there any?
Obama simply blabs…..He blabs monotonely for certain issues, or he blabs against certain issues in kind. …….usually in a near monotone amid a collection of words. There is no natural humor is his being……or if there is, it is deeply suppressed. There is nothing religious that arises in his conversation which indicates passion, except for his didactic explanations of Muslim rituals and traditions.
Obama is as distant to things American as he is to things Christian. I suppose he could argue that “familiarity breeds contempt”, but then, if that is all one hears from his lips and his writings, he proves my point.
The president carries at least a romance about Islam……totally absent in anything about Christianity.
Barack went to university and law school. There one learns to rise above such antedeluvian American traditions so primitive as Christianity. Mr. Obama is, after all, a Leftist.
