The man who has succeeded in placing himself one November election away from the White House in the most powerful position in our country is at it again.
Despite a 20-year history as a member of a church of controversey, despite associations with those who are a little more than just friendly to the terrorist cause, and despite an autobiography that clearly states his thoughts and feelings about things, Barack Obama continues to wiggle his way out of the media's spotlight whenever it threatens to shine a light on the truth that is at his core and at the heart of his convictions.
How the American public (and the world) can continue to turn a blind eye to his true faith and its potential impact on an Obama presidency (i.e. U.S. and World Politics) continues to baffle me. Then again, we are in the last days, which is a time that's described as being dominated by deception at every turn.
Plus, on second thought, I guess it's not entirely his fault. I mean, our own mainstream media are giving him a free pass and failing in their duty to serve the public's best interests. Don't believe me? How else do you explain this Freudian slip and the lack of attention given to it today in the news?
In what should be one of the most astonishing gaffes and self-inflicted wounds in American political history, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama referred to "my Muslim faith" in a nationally televised interview with ABC's "This Week" commentator George Stephanopoulus.
The "Freudian slip" confirmed what many researchers and political opponents have been claiming, and what the mainstream media has allowed him to deny - until now.
While Stephanopoulus several seconds later tried to correct him, helpfully interjecting "Christian faith," it was too late. The damage was done. Obama clearly did not mean his Christian faith, which would have made no sense in that context...
OBAMA: "And what was the first thing the McCain’s campaign went out and did? They said, look, these liberal blogs that support Obama are out there attacking Governor Palin. Let’s not play games. What I was suggesting — you’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith. And you’re absolutely right that that has not come…"
Fortunately, there are those news organizations like Raiders News Network (RNN) who will report all the news that is fit to print even if we might not like what we read.
Case in point, one headline today that read, "In Stunning Slip On National TV, Obama Refers To His 'Muslim Faith'" and it's the source article for this post. I encourage everyone to take a few minutes to read it in its entirity.
And for those of you who will be quick to defend him, here's a valid thought to consider from RNN on this subject:
"Obama defenders were quick to claim he meant to say 'his Christian faith.' But if you are a Christian, ask yourself how many times you...or members of your church...or your pastor from the pulpit...has slipped and referred to their 'Muslim faith'."
What We're Praying/Talking About
Our faith in action, or our small contribution in trying to apply what we're taught in Hebrews 5-6 and James 2:17-26 for the benefit of our dear brothers and sisters within the Body of Christ...
