There Can Only Be One, ONE: Obama Forces Georgetown to Cover Jesus During Speech
Posted on 16 April 2009 by admin (14)Amidst all of the American flags and presidential seals, there was something missing when President Barack Obama gave an economic speech at Georgetown University this week — Jesus.
The White House asked Georgetown to cover a monogram symbolizing Jesus’ name in Gaston Hall, which Obama used for his speech.
Roman Catholics traditionally use “IHS” as an abbreviation for Jesus’ name. Note the before and after photos and the pediment with “IHS” and a cross.
The gold “IHS” monogram inscribed on a pediment in the hall was covered over by a piece of black-painted plywood, and remained covered over the next day, CNSNews.com reported.
On Wednesday, CNSNews.com inspected the pediment embedded in the wall at the back of the stage in Gaston Hall, where Obama delivered his speech. The letters “IHS” were not to be found. They appeared to be shrouded with a triangle of black-painted plywood.
Catholic University spokesman Victor Nakas, who felt a bit more strongly on the subject:
“I can’t imagine, as the bishops’ university and the national university of the Catholic Church, that we would ever cover up our religious art or signage for any reason,” (REMEMBER BRAVEHEART – “FREEDOM”!!!) Mr. Nakas wrote. “Our Catholic faith is integral to our identity as an institution of higher education..
Some people have argued that Obama does not want to use religion to further a political ideology. However, Obama did evoke the Sermon on the Mount, at this Georgetown appearance, to further his economic agenda—Although Obama did not mention Jesus Christ by name for the Sermon on the Mount.
“There is a parable at the end of the Sermon on the Mount that tells a story of two men…‘the rain descended and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house…it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock,’” Obama said. “We cannot rebuild this economy on the same pile of sand,” he added. “We must build our house upon a rock.” (ILLUMINATI’S – CFR’S – TRI-LATERAL COMMISSION’S own “ROCK”…efellers !!!) The last statement is particularly ironic since building your house upon a ‘ROCK‘ means to build your house with Christ as the foundation. Dear Mr. President, the Rock you refer too is Jesus Christ. Please tell us why you decided to blot out the real author of the timeless parable. Perhaps you do not want the Messiah looking over your shoulder.
Obama’s recent statements to the Muslim world that “the United States is not, and never will be, at war with Islam” and that “we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation” are at odds with the cultural history of our great nation. Obama is wrong. We are a nation of great promise because of Jesus Christ, not despite. It is sad to see our leader so ungrateful for the countless bessing we have enjoyed as a Christian nation.
Don Feder gives an excellent summary of our heritage,
Patrick Henry remarked: “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religions, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
The Constitution is dated “in the year of our Lord, 1787,” in reference not to Allah, Krishna or Buddha, but to Jesus. Supreme Court Associate Justice Joseph Story, in his 1833 treatise on the Constitution, observed that the Founding Fathers believed “that Christianity ought to receive encouragement from the state.”
In the 1931 case of U.S. v Macintosh (decided before the federal judiciary began to deconstruct the First Amendment), the Supreme Court declared, “We are a Christian people.”
Every President of the United States, including B. Hussein Obama, took an oath to uphold the Constitution on a Bible. In every case save one, it was the King James Version.
Speaking of Obama’s predecessors – clearly less enlightened and worldly than the Messiah-in-Chief and probably in thrall to the religious right – their opinion is unanimous:
George Washington: “It is impossible to govern rightly without God and the Bible.” By the Bible, the Father of our Country was not referring to the Koran or the Bhagavad Gita.
John Adams: “The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were…the general principle of Christianity.”
John Quincy Adams: “The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: It connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.”
Andrew Jackson: “The Bible is the rock upon which our Republic rests” – again, in reference to the Christian Bible, not the Lotus Sutra.
Abraham Lincoln: “Intelligence, patriotism, Christianity, and a firm reliance on Him who has never yet forsaken this favored land are still competent to adjust, in the best way, all our present difficulty.” The “present difficulty” that Lincoln believed Christianity would resolve favorably was a civil war in which more than 600,000 Americans died.
Before the McGovernite takeover of the Democratic Party (now under the direction of George Soros), the presidents of Obama’s party also sang in the Christian-America choir.
Woodrow Wilson: “America was born a Christian nation. America was born to exemplify the devotion to the elements of righteousness which are derived from the revelation of Holy Scripture.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt, speaking of World War II: “Today, the whole world is divided, divided between human slavery and human freedom – between pagan brutality and the Christian ideal.”
Harry S. Truman, writing to Pope Pius XII: “This is a Christian nation. … It is not without significance that the valiant pioneers who left Europe to establish settlements here, at the very beginning of their colonial enterprise, declared their faith in the Christian religion and made ample provision for its practice and support.”
John F. Kennedy, in the midst of the Cold War: “And yet the same revolutionary belief for which our forbearers fought is still at issue around the globe, the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.”
Thomas Jefferson said something strikingly similar: “Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we remove their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God.”
Still, the Great Community Organizer can blithely proclaim that America – which is 75% to 80% Christian – is no more a Christian nation than it is a Moslem nation.
In a 2007 speech, Obama qualified this opinion –”Whatever we once were, we’re no longer a Christian nation.”
The president thereby allowed for the possibility that America once was a Christian nation, but is no longer. But when did Christianity’s dominance over American life end – with the Supreme Court’s 1962 school-prayer decision, its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision or Bill Clinton staining an intern’s dress with his bodily fluids circa 1995?
While insisting that “we” do not consider America a Christian nation, Obama praised the religion of peace. “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over so many centuries to shape the world for the better, including my own country.”
Besides being loopy, Obama’s declaration was conveniently vague.
Shape the world for the better? How? By spreading its creed by the sword? By establishing the concept of dhimmitude – that unbelievers must either convert to Islam or submit to Islamic rule? By turning women into chattel? By subjugating the Balkans, Greece, most of Spain and parts of Eastern Europe for hundreds of years? By the destruction of Constantinople and Byzantium, the Eastern Roman empire, expunging the glories of a millennium? By fostering the bloody fanaticism of Shiitism and Wahabism, and monopolizing international terrorism since at least the 1970s?
Islam has shaped America for the better? At least Obama didn’t say “had a profound impact” – like an airliner colliding with a tall building.
Jesus Christ is the ONE and he is the surest foundation we can build our lives on. Christ warned us not to be ashamed of Him. I am not ashamed of His power and the fact he is my Savior.
