Pres. Obama, the First Gay President, has demonstrated time and time again that he will say anything to anyone for the sake of political expediency.
Here is story from the Daily Caller with my emphases and comments:
Obama, the born-again Catholic
Amid polls showing that his efforts to regulate religious institutions have hurt his image among Catholics, President Barack Obama has begun touting his early ties to the church.
“My first job as a community [Saul Alinsky-ite] organizer was with Catholic churches who taught me the power of kindness and commitment to others in neighborhoods,” he declared at a Hollywood fundraiser May 23.
“When I was a young [Saul Alinksy dedicated Rules for Radicals to Satan…] community organizer, I was working with Catholic churches and they taught me that no government program can make as much of a difference as kindness and commitment on the part of neighbors and friends,” [Notice that he doesn’t say “church-based organizations”. That’s because, for him, religion should be isolated in churches and in homes, only.] he said at a Colorado fundraiser earlier that day. [Which is obviously why he pushes for bigger and bigger government and why his Administration seems to be trying to shove the Church out of providing certain services so that only the government is left. Right?]
This new [hypocritical] emphasis on his ties to the Catholic Church is a change from Obama’s previous speeches and fundraisers, where he did not mention that, early in his career, he was funded and supported by liberal Catholic officials in Chicago. [I think he did tout his ties with the late Card. Bernardin.]
His Chicago supporters included a radical Catholic priest, Father Michael Pfleger, who has since been admonished by senior church officials for political advocacy. [Is that why he was admonished?]
Obama’s use of his Catholic ties came April 3 at a lunch of media professionals arranged by the Associated Press.
“Some of you know my first job in Chicago [hey! he left out “community organizer”!] was working with a group of Catholic churches that often did more good for the people in their communities than any government program could,” he said. [Okay… so he is pivoting.]
He cited those ties on April 10, May 5, April 10 and May 10, when he told donors in Seattle that “as a young man, I worked [as a Saul Alinsky-ite community organizer] with a group of Catholic churches who taught me that no poverty program can make as much of a difference as the kindness and commitment of a caring soul.” [So let’s attack the Church!]
However, he has not mentioned his Catholic past in numerous other fundraisers, including several given after his May 9 endorsement of same-sex marriage.
