Where is the speech anti-Christian? He makes a point of which Christianity is to be taught. Should it be Catholicism since it is the largest
I am a Pagan, so I guess I don't belong in Christian America. We are NOT a Christian nation.
The size of a denomination does not "ever" make it Christian. I can say the same thing about Paganism. The size of the denomination does not make it
I will however make one thing clear ..not only by watching this video ...but by watching the body politic itself.
Politics is a religion here in this country and also in others. IT is obvious by the Zeal and Devoutness by which so many are wont to carry it out. IT
takes a lot of Faith to believe in any politician. Thus marketing ..by scientific principles is used to bridge the gap in levels of Faith. Which also
brings Science into the religion.
This religion is also referred in certain circles as "Humanism". Humanism is obviously that to which Obama and other politicians refer.
It is obvious to me that Obama here in this video is referring to "Humanism" under the priesthood of the body politic ...for votes to gain and
remain in power.
While I believe very much in the doctrine of Separation of Church and state and that history clearly justifies this doctrine...I also know that
politicians ..in selling the souls of the public for votes...will blurr the lines without many of us being aware of this tactic. It is done by
appealing to our baser emotions. To put us on a feel good emotional string.
I become very wary and cautious when I see a politician blurring the lines as Obama is doing here. Not just Obama but others before him.
It is very easy among the uninformed to not be able to see how it is possible to overlay privily, one religion upon another, and have the new
synthesis ...pass off as the new religion..the new paradigm...the new template. In this case it "appears" to be the new moral high ground.
I am also aware historically of the footprint of such humanistic doctrines like the prisca theologica and Hermes Trismegistus...and how they extend to
today's religions and politics...the politics of logic and reason...of Humanism.
Be very careful of what passes for humanistic doctrines ...they are often in speeches attempting to pass off politics and the body politic as a new
priesthood. It will be a continuation of the old religions with what "appears" to be new window dressing.
One of the telltale signs is when a candidate or political party/priesthood attempts to put you on an emotional string ...an emotional roller coaster.
A string or coaster that they control..not you. The olde good cop/bad cop routine.
In our haste to justify our emotions...or someone elses transplanted emotions... it never seems to occur to most of us ...that they are both bad
