Barack Obama Lied About Religions

by Bob Johnson

 

In Barack Obama’s weekly address he spread lies about religions. He said, “But there is never any justification for violence. There is no religion that condones the targeting of innocent men and women.” This is a lie.

Obama was speaking about the Islamic attacks in Libya which killed the US ambassador and three others working for the US embassy. It seems very probable that Obama is familiar with the contents of the Quran and the contents of the Bible. If this is correct, then he had to be lying when he made that false statement.

The Quran has many passages which instruct Muslims to kill unbelievers. For example, Surah 9:5 openly instructs Muslims to “slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush.” This is exactly what the Muslims who attacked the US consulate in Libya did. They were following their “holy” scriptures to the letter.

Islam also teaches that men are superior to women and women need to obey men and that men need to beat women who do not obey. Surah 4:34 teaches, “Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great.”

There are many other examples from the Quran which show it promotes violence contrary to what Obama says. Why he would like about this needs to be answered. However, I don’t expect any reporters from the established media to ask him why he lied about this important issue.

Obama says he’s a Christian. As a Christian he must have read the “holy” book of his religion, the Bible. His lie in his weekly address is made evident when we read the Bible, too. For example, Numbers 31:17-18 says that Moses was upset with the Israeli army for not killing all of the women and children of a vanquished enemy, the Midianite people. Verses 17 and 18 tell us that he ordered the Israeli army: “Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.” Verse 35 informs us that the number of  “women children” the Israelis kept for themselves was 32,000! Based on these Bible passages Moses was a war criminal and Obama is a liar.

When we look at “the king of peace,” Jesus, we see he wasn’t such a promoter of peace as some people would have you believe. For example, Matthew 10:34 says that Jesus said, “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.” It’s true that killing all nonbelievers as the Quran teaches, or killing and raping all people and children who don’t belong to your people as the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament teaches was not taught by Jesus. However, by saying such things as coming “not to send peace, but a sword” is violence promoting. Perhaps this teaching attributed to Jesus played a part in Christianity’s violent past during the Inquisition and Reformation and could play a part if Christianity ever gets the power to once again inflict violence on the world? And the cult like teachings in verses 35-37 of going against your family and whoever loves their parents or children more than they love Jesus is not worthy of Jesus remind me of the teachings of Charlie Manson and Jim Jones.

For Obama to lie about the violent nature of the “revealed”/hearsay religions is wrong. How can we remove religious violence if we don’t even have a realistic knowledge of the violence promoting and producing religions? As the first principle of philosophy states, we MUST see things as they REALLY are. The “revealed”/hearsay religions really are violence promoting. In order to get rid of religious violence we must get rid of the religions that promote violence. The best way to do that is through God-given reason and Deism. As the American founder and Deist Thomas Paine wrote in his landmark book on God, Deism and religion, The Age of Reason, The Complete Edition (for Kindle version click here), we need a revolution in religion based on our God-given reason and Deism. I think the war and violence creating “revealed”/hearsay religions are proving him right!

    So Tyrone, friend,
    Should we worship the sun?

  2. Gary Walker  September 26, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    Tyrone my friend,

    I actually agree with you here. It’s a miracle. Taos somewhat haughty word is, well, haughty.

    Praise Chemosh,
    Infidel

    Seems like a few “bad aliens” are posting here. We all need to practice putting our hearts and heads together so we can make sense of what we think, intend, read, say, and do. This may take a life time for some so alot of unecessary chatter goes on in the meantime. Find the Jew, the Christian, the Deist, the Taoist, the Muslim, the Hindu, and the Buddhist in your self before you judge, generalize or condemn any of these human beings. These organized religions have less dogmatic pull on you if you have made meaningful, non-violent, compassionate contact with the “other”.

    Right on Bob!

    It is interesting to note that the Midianites that Moses butchered and enslaved were his relatives. His first wife, Ziphorah, was a Midianite, that makes his son, Gershom, a Midianite. They saved Moses’ ass when he was a fugitive from Egypt, because he murdered an Egyptian. Moses was a murderer, but of course he didn’t have the Ten C. back then so how could he know it was wrong to murder!

    And as for Koran 9:5 it says when the sacred days are over slay the idolaters. That’s a nice touch. Wait for your supercillious sacred daze to end before you start slitting throats. You gotta love religion. You gotta, or they will kill you.

    And you are right about Jesus. He warnt no peacenik. What is he going to do when he comes back, kill everyone who isn’t a superstitious idiot. And I have mentioned to many Bible thumpers that Jim Jones, and Koresh, and Applewaith (heaven’s gate) etc. must have loved that quote from Luke 14 saying you must hate your own family. As that famous philosopher J.D. Clampett would say, “pityful, jez pitiful.”

    Imagine no religion,
    Infidel

    Agreed. I wanted to edit that in (i.e contradiction) but there is no such feature on here.

  7. Bob Johnson  September 21, 2012 at 9:02 am

    Thanks for your input ricohands. The Koran, like all of the books promoted as the word of God, contradicts itself. That does not change the fact that Surah 9:5, and other passages, openly instructs Muslims to kill non-Muslims.

    Which “God’s word?” The Christians say God’s word is the Old and New Testaments, the Jews say it’s the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and the Muslims say it’s the Quran. I’m a Deist and don’t believe any of them are the word of God. To me, the only possible word of God is the Creation itself. As the American founder and Deist Thomas Paine wrote in his outstanding book on God, Deism and religion, The Age of Reason, The Complete Edition, “I believe it is only in the CREATION that all our ideas and conceptions of a Word of God can unite. The Creation speaks a universal language, independently of human speech or human language, multiplied and various as they may be. It is an ever existing original, which every man can read. It cannot be forged; it cannot be counterfeited; it cannot be lost; it cannot be altered; it cannot be suppressed. It does not depend upon the will of man whether it shall be published or not; it publishes itself from one end of the earth to the other. It preaches to all nations and to all worlds; and this Word of God reveals to man all that is necessary for man to know of God.”

    If Obama was truly against violence he would not lie about what the various books claiming to be the word of God say. He would instead point out these violence promoting teachings and openly say they are wrong and damaging.

    Satan is a fictitious character the clergy made-up in order to use to better control people through fear.

    Remember, God gave us reason and not religion.

    So those who killed the American ambassador were merely following orders from the Koran? Have you proof of that? Seems like you have been taken in by fraudulent propagandists and “jihadwatch”.

    Alex Kane did a marvelous piece on Mondoweiss yesterday entitled: “Fraudsters: New report highlights how Islamophobes have no expertise in the religion they claim to know”.

    Also from the Koran:
    You will find the most violent in enmity to the believers are the Jews and the pagans (pagan Arabs); and nearest in affection to the believers are those who say: “We are Christians.” That is because among them there are men that are priests and monks, who do not behave arrogantly

    And:
    “The ink of the scholar is greater than the blood of the martyr” – Prophet Mohammed

    And:
    Prophet Muhammad once said, “Beware! Whoever is cruel and hard on a non-Muslim minority, or curtails their rights, or burdens them with more than they can bear, or takes anything from them against their free will; I will complain against this person on the Day of Judgment.”

    You should learn about Gods word, before you wrote this page. Obama is against violance, and tries to prevent it. He understands that as times change, so should the way we treat oneanother. We are not @ war with oneanother, but the enemy(Satan). We war as if it is against us, and religions, but we know we must defeat the true enemy. That is what Jesus was talking about. We need to all be @ peace, and spread words of love, for God is love.

    Why do you focus on Obama and religion when Obama’s actions are based on blackmail due to his hidden stunning personal life, exploited by AIPAC.

    From Israel Shamir:

    Israelis are notorious for their “kiss and tell” indiscretion (“larutz lesaper lehevre”, in Hebrew). A confidante of Netanyahu, Ari Shavit, has told us that “the Israeli leader applied hidden pressure to the American leader,” which made him fall on his knees and beg for mercy. The name of the “hidden pressure” is a Jewish billionaire from Chicago Lester Crown, who “made Obama” and supposedly retains full control over his creature, or alternatively, another Jewish Chicagoan Marty Nesbitt. However, even if the US President was forced by his Jewish benefactors to do a volte-face, he certainly bore a grudge for this humiliating turn.

    Shamir doesn’t realize the hidden pressure comes from videos of Obama’s secret personal life. Explain why Michelle Obama took a vacation two years ago away from her husband on his birthday. Perhaps she learned about his stunning personal life. AIPAC looks for presidential candidates vulnerable to blackmail.
