Hark! The arrival of the cultus of Personality
Published on March 7, 2009 By lulapilgrim In Politics

You know what? Ever since Obama made all kinds of outrageous promises of hope, really hype, the Liberals are in adoration and his flock of sheople have been blind with delight.

Obama is a god in the cult of Personality! A friend recently sent me an article from the Remnant newspaper that has something I'd like to share with you for your consideration.  

The new ten commandments of Obamanation are:

1  I am Barack thy Obama, thou shalt not cling bitterly to the Lord thy God.

2  Thou shalt not take the name of Barack in vain.

3  Remember keep holy the Inauguration Day.

4  Honor thy mother and her partner and honor thy father and his partner.

5  Thou shalt kill (the unborn).

6  Thou shalt not commit chastity.

7  Thou shalt steal from the rich.

8  Thou shalt not bear firearms against the wildlife.

9  Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's quota.

10  Thy shalt covet thy neighbor's wealth.

Yep, for the most part the residuals of Christianity in America have all but disappeared. And since man always has a religion of one sort or another, the vacuum is being filled under the advent of Obama.....Obamanation.

Some of those I agree with and some I don't.

How about you list specific things that Obama, the Obama administration, or liberals have said to back up your commandments?

Okay.

1 I am Barack thy Obama, thou shalt not cling bitterly to the Lord thy God.

Obama claims he's Christian, yet instead of Almighty God, he relies on Government to bring hope, consolation and peace of mind...and expects us to do the same. Hope can only come from the Word Incarnate, that is, from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.    

Let's take

2 Thou shalt not take the name of Barack in vain.

We learned early on from the mainstream media that it was practically a crime or should I say heresy to say Obama's full name...Barack Hussein Obama? Why was that?

So anyone who tries to bring hope to people through any other method is anti-God? What a depressing outlook to have - I'd be grateful to have people providing hope to others (assuming it's not a false hope). Why not just go with the clinging to guns+religion comment to back up point 1? It wouldn't apply fully, but it wouldn't be as negative a point/argument.

Because normally you don't mention someone by full name, and many of the people who did chose to emphasis the Hussein part of his name, no doubt in a bid to stir up a bit of racism and general negativism (since for example hussein was a name that happened to be shared with a dictator who we recently overthrew+had killed). Also did Obama himself actually condemn people using his full name, or are you just associating with Obama any comment or attitude made by anyone that might support him to some extent?

 

Given the above explanations, I'm curious to hear if anything similar was used to justify points such as 3 and 6

I disagree with this 100%.  Now that doesn't mean that I buy into Obama's version of "Hope" as a catchphrase but I have hope for the future and I don't need god or Jesus Christ to give it to me.  Hope is NOT a religious concept.

Some of those I agree with and some I don't.

Excellent comment.  I too agree with some of the items, but definitely not all of them.  I prefer the term Obamamania for what has been happening.  Obama talks a great game (when scripted) and that motivated a lot of people to vote for him, but I have a feeling his vague slogans are going to start coming back to bite him very soon.  Once people realize that his version of "change" is not the same as what they had thought I see his popularity plummiting.  I certainly don't see Obama getting re-elected in 2012.

The key to understanding my point is that I prefaced my statement by saying that Obama claims he's Christian, yet instead of relying upon Almighty God....

Hope is a virtue by which we firmly trust in God and that He will give us the means to obtain happiness. The enemies of hope are the vices of despair and presumption.

So anyone who tries to bring hope to people through any other method is anti-God? What a depressing outlook to have - I'd be grateful to have people providing hope to others (assuming it's not a false hope).

That's just it, Obama is giving false hope because Government isn't the solution to people's needs and happiness. Christ is.

In other words, Obama is presumptuously saying that hope is the end and Government is the means to that end.

Just curious. Then where does the hope that you have in your heart come from then, if not from Almighty God?

Oh, c'mon? You know as well as I that when it comes to our Presidents, we know their middle names and certainly their middle initials. Right off the top of my head, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, William Jefferson Clinton, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Richard M. Nixon, John Quincy Adams, etc.

To my knowledge, every presidential candidate has been thoroughly vetted up until Obama came on the scene. Not so with Obama. We all knew very early on after Obama made his bid for the Whitle House, that saying his middle name was off limits otherwise for doing so one was accused of being racist or hateful, etc. Saying Obama's middle name has nothing to do with racism or being negative and the inference that it is is well, just plain stupid.

The mainstream media was so enamored with him that they didn't want certain things about his past life, his association with radicals and his Muslim family vetted. Instead of doing their job properly, they coddled, protected and treated him with "kid gloves".

My hope comes from my knowledge that humans are a resilient species.  We have faced many trials and tribulations through our time on this earth and I have hope that we will be able to conquer anything that is thrown our way.  Some need faith in a diety to have that hope, my faith, if you want to call it that, is in humanity.

Hope comes from *my* brain. And then it's up to me to get to getting what I can done to make that hope a reality.

Anyone can have hope.  And they may or may not believe in a Christian god . . or any god.

 

#6 is the one that really made me go WTF.  I'd love to hear more on that one.

But how many of those presidents were referred to by their middle names when they preferred to be addressed by their first names?  During the run up to the election last year many on the right referred to Obama as B. Hussein Obama not Barack H. Obama.  How often was Kennedy referred to as J. Fitzgerald Kennedy or Clinto called W. Jefferson Clinton?

I'm certainly no fan of Obama's but that always bothered me.  If the guy wanted to be called Barack Obama that should have been respected.

To my knowledge, every presidential candidate has been thoroughly vetted up until Obama came on the scene. Not so with Obama.

I agree with you here, but it has nothing to do with his middle name.

The mainstream media was so enamored with him that they didn't want certain things about his past life, his association with radicals and his Muslim family vetted. Instead of doing their job properly, they coddled, protected and treated him with "kid gloves".

Again I agree with you 100% here.

OBAMANATION, the new Democrat religion....The new ten commandments of Obamanation are:


6 Thou shalt not commit chastity.

ZUBAZ POSTS:

#6 is the one that really made me go WTF. I'd love to hear more on that one.

First and foremost whatever God made is good and in itself, knowledge of it is good and co exists with God's perfect Justice. The Sixth Commandment of ALmighty God has reference to man's instinct for self or race propagation, an instinct which has been implanted in man by God.

According to the Church, the Sixth Commandment of Almighty God is "Thou shalt not commit adultery" specifically forbids those sins of impurity committed with another's wife or husband. In general the Sixth Commandment forbids all sins of impurity including adultery, fornication, birth control, homosexuality, masturbation and beastility.

Our sexual drive is a precious power given to us by God and the use of sexual activity in marriage is God's plan. So, obviously this sexual pleasure is not so much for the individual as for procreation of the human race, and hence to use it simply and solely for the purpose of self indulgence and self-gratification is contrary to the Holy Will and designs of Almighty God and stulifies His purpose. It makes for the ruin and destruction of society.

The virtue which checks, controls and chastens the sexual instinct is called Chastity.

Obama is the Democrat Party's newly "anointed one" and he was elected becasue he firmly believes these new commandments and has promised to base his policies upon them.

Take public education for example...and specifically permissive, explicit sex ed instruction to children from kindergarten through 12th grades which teaches our children: Sex....just do it---as long as you are ready, it's consensual and "safe" by use of a condom or birth control.   When Obama was talking on the subject of sex ed, he quipped that should one of his daughters become pregnant, he wouldn't want her punished for her mistake....His solution to the problem was for her to kill his grandbaby by abortion and not prevent the preganancy in the first place by teaching youngsters to practice chastity.

After all, no one can contract a venereal disease or become pregnant by practicing chastity, right?

I'm sorry . . I missed the part when he said he would encourage her to have an abortion.  If my daughters got pregnant without a civil union () I would be very disappointed in them.  But I wouldn't punish them *OR* have them abort the child. I would do my best to help her be as good a parent as I could.

And while I agree that many liberals have views I disagree with when it comes to life, I wouldn't say that they encourage abortions; they present it as an option.  There is a difference.

In general the Sixth Commandment forbids all sins of impurity including adultery, fornication, birth control, homosexuality, masturbation and beastility.
How odd.  I thought that commandment wsa pretty clear as it was and didnt' have any unwritten riders.

I was gonna ask you to define fornication, but I changed my mind.

But how many of those presidents were referred to by their middle names

A lot of people referred to our last president as "W."

But I agree the name thing is a bit silly and childish. There are a lot of real things to dislike about Obama, and his middle name (for me) isn't on that list.
