WASHINGTON - Seeking to revive a dispirited nation, President Obama, last week, told Americans to get religion - civil religion.
"We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things," Obama said, quoting St. Paul's first letter to the Corinthians in one of the few explicitly Christian references in his address.
America's civil religion has been a fixture at inaugural ceremonies since George Washington's, when the peaceful transfer of power at the high altar of American politics takes on an almost sacred air. Obama drew on Washington and other American icons as exemplars of banding together for the common good, a key tenet of civil religion....
There are two "kingdoms," the spiritual and the temporal. What Obama tried to do was what popes of the past have tried to do...being a spiritual and temporal ruler, applying spiritual principles to civil things and secular or temporal and vice versa. Not the best way to do things. What the US needs to do is repent and believe the only true Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
"We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things," Obama said, quoting St. Paul's first letter to the Corinthians in one of the few explicitly Christian references in his address."
Childish things. You mean like seeing government as Mommy?
We have a civil responsibility, not a civil religion --

Let's see, Obama has been in office for about three weeks now and those who blindly voted for him are now beginning to see that he is the very worst of the same old hellish same old that has been going on in Washington for years on end !!!
Obama doesn't know his head from a hole in the ground, he's just like all the other self-centered degenerates in DC, overeducated blunderers, full of themselves and they have no concept of the "TRUE DIRECTION" FOR AMERICA.
Andrew Jackson said it best back in 1832 when confronted by greedy bankers looking for a hand out --- "Gentlemen, I have had men watching you ... When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out, and by the eternal God, I will rout you out." - SUCH WISDOM !!!
Our government is filled with vipers and thieves and yes, theyâ€™re in bed with the crooked bankers and the Wall Street thugs.
