Faith In Action?

It looks more like “religious showboating” in action, to me.

I am not a Democrat or a Republican, and this is not a political blog. I will, however, speak out when faith collides with politics – primarily because TRUE faith is often the victim in such a collision, and the shameless promotion of politicians prevails.

Unless you live under a rock, you know that this is the week of the Democratic National Convention in Denver. Of course, it’s better known as the ascension and formal anointing of Barack Obama – the redeeming “messiah” (and his “new heaven”) who will endow the world with “change we can all believe in”.

Anyway, the Dem’s have decided to trot out all manner of “religious leader” to prove that they believe in God too. The Dem’s sponsored a (first ever) “Intefaith Gathering” on the eve of the start of their convention this week.

Take a look at a slide show of some of the highlights.

You’ve got the usual props for such an event (ecumenical choir, religious prayers from “Christians” who won’t mention the name of Jesus, and talk about how God loves all of us despite our aversion to following His way). And believe me, the Republicans will trot out the same gimmicks to show “hey, the Dem’s don’t really believe in God – we’re the party chosen by the Almighty Himself!”.

So you’ll see the usual “stuff” in the slideshow. What caught my attention, however, was that some folks interrupted the “show” to voice their displeasure with the Democrats embrace of abortion (i.e. “a woman’s right to choose”) – as well as the words of a prominent Bishop:

We know that our party will understand and acknowledge the moral and spiritual pain that so many of us feel because of this disregard for the lives of the unborn. Those of us who support the Democratic Party, despite our disagreement on this issue, support it because the Democratic Party articulates and pursues more of the positions that are relevant to the lives and circumstances of our people.

That “prominent Bishop” is Charles Blake, the Presiding Bishop of the Church of God in Christ (the largest black pentecostal denomination in the world). Not content with trying to keep COGIC’s skeletons in the closet, Blake decided that although the Dem’s clearly embrace the murder of innocent babies in the womb, at least they’re not as bad as those darn Republican devil worshippers (my interpretation, of course).

Yet another example of what you get when you beg the Lord to give you a king “just like everybody else has” :

1 Samuel 8:10-20 (New American Standard Bible)

10 So Samuel spoke all the words of the LORD to (A)the people who had asked of him a king.

 11 He said, “(B)This will be the procedure of the king who will reign over you: (C)he will take your sons and place them for himself in his chariots and among his horsemen and (D)they will run before his chariots.

 12 (E)He will appoint for himself commanders of thousands and of fifties, and some to do his plowing and to reap his harvest and to make his weapons of war and equipment for his chariots.

 13 “He will also take your daughters for perfumers and cooks and bakers.

 14 (F)He will take the best of your fields and your vineyards and your olive groves and give them to his servants.

 15 “He will take a tenth of your seed and of your vineyards and give to his officers and to his servants.

 16 “He will also take your male servants and your female servants and your best young men and your donkeys and use them for his work.

 17 “He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his servants.

 18 “Then (G)you will cry out in that day because of your king whom you have chosen for yourselves, but (H)the LORD will not answer you in that day.”

 19 Nevertheless, the people (I)refused to listen to the voice of Samuel, and they said, “No, but there shall be a king over us,

20(J)that we also may be like all the nations, that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles.”

Sure, Barack Obama:

  • Claims that Jesus isn’t the only path to God the Father
  • Believes that women should be able to murder babies on demand
  • Believes that the bible is obscure as it relates to homosexual sin
  • Believes that government is the magic potion to all the world’s ills

But so what – he’s black, right? Plus he’s photogenic and speaks well, and we’ll never see another viable black candidate so we better “get on board” now.

Right?

Yeah, that’s it. 🙄
