Barack Obama is no disciple

ElectionsBarack Obama

Last election, Barack Obama presented himself to the people as the reincarnation ofMartin Luther King Jr.. This election, he seems to have re-invented himself as an apostle of Christ, claiming at the National Prayer Breakfast last week that his economic policies are in line with Jesus' teachings. He has thus gone from the laughable to the blasphemous.

Not only does President Obama pale in comparison to King, but does he really think that Jesus sanctions his anti-life policies of contraception, homosexuality and abortion? Does he really believe that the murder of innocent children through abortion is good for the economy? Whose economy? On top of that, he has the twisted audacity to suggest those who oppose his anti-life policies are chattels to a "phony religiosity." Citizens, don't be fooled again!
