Trump to Cruz: You’re not a natural born citizen!

Trump knows and explains it to the people. Rafael (Ted) Cruz is not a eligible to hold the Office of the President of the United States

H/T CDR Kerchner

Natural Born Citizen per the United States Congress in 1866

“Every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen.” (Cong. Globe, 39th, 1st Sess., 1291 (1866))

 

Rafael (Ted) Cruz disqualifies himself

In a campaign interview during his freshman senate race, a GOP Texas State Committee member sat down with the young candidate to ask a few poignant vetting questions, and here are the questions and answers from that interview… (Redacted information is to protect the witness at this moment, but the witness is willing to offer sworn testimony)

Interviewer: “Hello Mr. Cruz, it’s a pleasure to meet you. My name is (redacted). I am a (redacted) County GOP Precinct Chair and you have my support and vote. I have one question for you if I may?”
Cruz: “Sure, go ahead.”
Interviewer: “What is your understanding of how one becomes a natural born Citizen?”
Cruz: “Two citizen parents and born on the soil.”
Interviewer: “Not exactly, but as I don’t have enough time to fully explain how one does become an natural born Citizen, based on your understanding, would you agree that Barack Obama is ineligible to be POTUS?”
Cruz: “I would agree.”
Interviewer: “So when we get you elected, will you expose him for the usurping fraud he is?”
Cruz: “No, my main focus will be on repealing Obamacare.”
Interviewer: “But Mr. Cruz, if he is exposed as the usurping fraud he is, everything he has done will become null and void. Everything!”
Interviewer: “At that point, Cruz reiterated his main concern, so it was obvious the conversation was over as far as Cruz was concerned. I thanked him for his time and wished him success in the runoff.”

That senate race was highly unusual. Redistricting had caused setbacks delaying the elections and election results. Cruz was running to replace Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison who had just retired and vacated her seat. At the originally scheduled time for the primary, Republican Cruz opponent Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst was well ahead in the polls. But by the time the election took place, Cruz had had enough time to slip ahead with more name recognition, in the end defeating his opponent and going on to defeat Democrat Paul Sadler in the general election, becoming only one of three Latino’s in the U.S. Senate.

TedCruzDisqualifiesHimself

Rafael (Ted) Cruz was not born in the United States to US Citizen parents. Rafael (Ted) Cruz is not a ‘Natural Born Citizen’ and is ineligible to seek the Ofice of the President of the United States.

Ted Cruz and the GOP’s new game

Ted Cruz and the GOP are smaching the pedal to the metal and hoping that you don’t catch on. The latest move by Rafael Cruz aka Ted Cruz is to fast and lose with his mommy’s citizenship.

WONDERFUL!

Why? Cause it shows just how deceptive and out of touch with reality that not only the GOP is, but that they (the GOP) and their lapdog media will push any candidate they want regardless of the law.

First off, let’s post mommy Cruz’s birth certificate. Here it is,

mommy cruz's BC

mommy cruz’s BC

What does it prove?

It proves that mommy Cruz was in fact born in the US. OK, we are good with that. That still is about mommy and not Rafael (Ted) Cruz, who was born in Canada.

Here again is Rafael (Ted) Cruz’s birth certificate

Rafael (Ted Cruz) BC

Rafael (Ted Cruz) BC

So what we have is Rafael (Ted) Cruz born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada to a foreign father, Rafael Bienvenido Cruz (a Cuban national), and a Elanoe Elizabeth Wilson (a US Citizen).

Now, let’s do the math Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz born in a foreign country (Canada) to a foreign father (Cuban) and a US Citizen mother (US Citizen)

(Foreign born) (Foreign father) (US Mother) correct? How does this eqaul the following?

“Every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen.” (Cong. Globe, 39th, 1st Sess., 1291 (1866))

Natural Born Citizen per the United States Congress in 1866

(Born in the United States) (US Citizen Parents, meaning BOTH Dad and Mom)

again, in 1875 The United States Supreme Court

The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first.
-Chief Justice Waite in Minor v. Happersett (1875)

again (Born in the United States) (US Citizen Parents, meaning BOTH Dad and Mom)

Are they equal?

1866; (Born in the United States) (US Citizen Parents, meaning BOTH Dad and Mom)

1875; (Born in the United States) (US Citizen Parents, meaning BOTH Dad and Mom)

Rafael (Ted) Cruz (Foreign born) (Foreign father) (US Mother)

No they are not equal. Not even close.

But, let’s look at the United States Constitution.

What are the requirements for being a Representitive or Senator?

Representitive, COTUS

Article 1 sec 2

No Person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in which he shall be chosen.

Please make note: a citizen

Now a Senator, COTUS

No Person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen.

Again make note: a citizen

Now, what does the Constitution say about the ‘requirements’ of the President?

President, COTUS

Art 2 sec 1

No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

Note the difference: a natural born citizen  A higher standatrd.  The Founding Fathers understood the importance of keeping foreign influence out of the highest office and that was only accomplished by a higher standard of qualification. John Jay’s letter to George Washington is point and to the fact.

Permit me to hint, whether it would not be wise & seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government; and to declare expresly that the Command in chief of the american army shall not be given to, nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen.

Rafael (Ted) Cruz does not meet the higher standard of being a ‘natural born citizen’ as required per the United States Constitution to hold the office of the President of the United States. 

Rafael (Ted) Cruz, does meet the requirement of holding either the office of a Representive or Senator, but not the Presidency, and no amount of warping or twisting ‘mommy’s birth certificate’ will make him one.

So Rafael (Ted) Cruz’s mommy birth certificate proves Rafael (Ted) Cruz is a United States Citizen, but not a United States Natural Born Citizen.

Hannity gets it wrong – US Code does not supersede the Constitution

Sean Hannity the Cruz-bot, and GOP shill. Out right lied and was being deceptive when discussing Trump’s questioning of Ted Cruz’s eligibility to hold the Office of the President.

Watch the first 10 min of this and see just how bad Sean Hannity attempts to legitimize a foreign born, foreign fathered Teddy Cruz. Sean might have well just stated ‘least out foreigner likes America!’.

the original YouTube video has been deleted.  (see below)

Sean’s biggest lie to not only Geraldo, the audience, and the viewing public is the flat out lie that US Code supersedes the United States Constitution, which it does not.

FACT: US Code does not supersede the United States Constitution

The USC (US Code or United States Code) is not Constitutional law. (Which is different from saying that something is unconstitutional) Most of the USC is established by Congress using their constitutionally granted powers. The Constitution overrules any laws that are in conflict with it, as decided by the Supreme Court (SCOTUS). Treaties also supercede the USC. The heirarchy goes like this: COTUS (Constitution of The United States) , Treaties, USC (US Code), CFR (Code of Federal Regulations)

That being the case, The United States Constitution requires that the President be No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

Therefore US Code that Sean Hannity was touting as legalizing Ted Cruz’s eligibility was a outright lie and deception. Plain and simple and that being said why I wrote to Sean Hannity blasting him for his unPatriotic sellout. Sean Hannity is a GOP media lapdog and mouthpiece.

From Congress in 1839

Journal of the House of Representatives of the United States, 1838-1839
MONDAY, January 28, 1839.
Mr. Heman Allen submitted the following resolution; which was read, and debate arising, it was laid over, under the rule, viz:
Resolved, That the Committee on the Judiciary be instructed to inquire into the expediency of so amending the law on the subject of naturalization, as to exclude those from the privileges of natural–born citizens who are or shall be born of parents who have been removed, or shall remove, from the United States, and have taken or shall take the oath of allegiance to the Government in which they so reside, until such person shall become naturalized like other foreigners, agreeably to the laws that now do or hereafter may exist on that subject.
In plain simple english ‘natural–born citizens who are or shall be born of parents‘ from the United States.

Here is how Rep. John Bingham (Father of the 14th Amendment)  explained “natural born citizenship” on the floor of the House on March 9, 1866:

“I find no fault with the introductory clause [S 61 Bill], which is simply declaratory of what is written in the Constitution, that every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen….”

More from John Bingham

John Bingham, aka “father of the 14th Amendment”, was an abolitionist congressman from Ohio who prosecuted Lincoln’s assassins.  Ten years earlier, he stated on the House floor:

“All from other lands, who by the terms of [congressional] laws and a compliance with their provisions become naturalized, are adopted citizens of the United States; all other persons born within the Republic, of parents owing allegiance to no other sovereignty, are natural born citizens. Gentleman can find no exception to this statement touching natural-born citizens except what is said in the Constitution relating to Indians.” (Cong. Globe, 37th, 2nd Sess., 1639 (1862))

again from John Bingham;

During a debate (see pg. 2791) regarding a certain Dr. Houard, who had been incarcerated in Spain, the issue was raised on the floor of the House of Representatives as to whether the man was a US citizen.  Representative Bingham (of Ohio), stated on the floor:

“As to the question of citizenship I am willing to resolve all doubts in favor of a citizen of the United States.  That Dr. Houard is a natural-born citizen of the United States there is not room for the shadow of a doubt.  He was born of naturalized parents within the jurisdiction of the United States, and by the express words of the Constitution, as amended to-day, he is declared to all the world to be a citizen of the United States by birth.” (The term “to-day”, as used by Bingham, means “to date”.  Obviously, the Constitution had not been amended on April 25, 1872.)

Notice that Bingham declares Houard to be a “natural-born citizen” by citing two factors – born of citizen parents in the US.

Then in 1866, Bingham also stated on the House floor:

“Every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen.” (Cong. Globe, 39th, 1st Sess., 1291 (1866))

From The United States Supreme Court 1875

The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first.
-Chief Justice Waite in Minor v. Happersett (1875)

Was Ted Cruz’s PARENTS, United States Citizens?  NO! Was Ted Cruz’s father a United States Citizen? NO!

How does a Natural Born Citizen of the United States have a foreign Birth Certificate? 

Ted Cruz Birth Certificate

March 31, 2012 – Sheriff Arpaio: Obama’s Records Are Forgeries

The Obama records which have not been released include; Passport records, Obama kindergarten records, Punahou School records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, University of Chicago scholarly articles, Illinois State Bar Association records, Illinois State Senate records/schedules (said to be lost), Medical records, Obama/Dunham marriage license, Obama/Dunham divorce documents, Soetoro/Dunham marriage license, Adoption records and of course the long-form Certificate of Live Birth.
State Representative Carl Seel, who introduced the bill, was joined by Sheriff Joe Arpaio, State Senator Lori Klein, and others in support of the bill. Important new information was revealed during the news conference including a request by Sheriff Joe Arpaio to the current head of the Selective Service Board to investigate the criminal forgery committed in the case of Barack Obama’s Selective Service registration. In addtion, Carl Seel reveals some of the resistance that other Republicans are creating to stop the bill from even heading to a vote.
The bill will require Barack Obama, or any candidate seeking to be on the Arizona ballot, to certify eligibility for the office they are seeking. This will essentially require Barack Obama to certify his eligibility if he wants to be on the ballot this year in Arizona. This could potentially be a game-changing piece of legislation.

 

Ted Cruz the ineligible and the 2016 Democrat end Game

Barack Obama’s illegitimate and fabled background has done more to awaken the citizenry to a Constitutional crisis then the global elitist’s would have ever imagined. Why start with Barry Obama? That is where Congress and the Courts have disregarded the not only the ongoing questions, but Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas even stated “We are avoiding that issue”.

Why is this important?

For the past several years, since 2007, Barack Obama has claimed that he was born in Hawaii. Claimed but never proven. There is no hospital that has ever stated Barack Obama was born there. The COLB, Long Form Birth Certificate and even Barack Obama’s selective service registration have been proven to be fraudulent and counterfeit documents. Not to mention that it wasn’t till 2007 that Obama’s fabricated and fairy tale past even began to mention being born in Hawaii. Even video of Michelle Obama calling him a Kenyan and that Kenya is his home country is out on the internet. Numerous court cases all not heard on the merits, cause citizens don’t have standing. But that is going to change.

The Democrat endgame is to ensure that Hillary Clinton is the Democrat nominee and with the almost guarantee that Ted Cruz is the Republican candidate of choice. The Democrats are going to pull the ‘birther’ game on Cruz. Remember it was Hillary’s campaign that initially questioned Barack Obama.

Hillary had the goods on Barack Obama, but Obama had the all the Clinton skeletons from the closet. Hillary was out smarted and owned.

If Ted Cruz actually wins the nomination and election, the Democrats will use the ‘birther’ option to disqualify Ted Cruz. Fact.

Why do you think that Barack Obama is not worried about his illegal and unconstitutional power grabs? Because he knows the fix is in and will be protected. The Democrats have sold out their party and nation to the globalists, the republicans are also complicit in treason against the United States and its citizens.  John Boehner as speaker of the house did nothing to stop Barack Obama and will go down as a complete failure.  The Courts have outright lied to the American people and the uneducated and dumb down populace is getting what they deserve. The United States Supreme Court does not have the power to legislate morality, however they demand that you recognize same sex marriage, so sodomy is legal, homosexuality has to be tolerated. Morality is whatever the courts say. Bull. They will be going to hell. GOD has stated so, that’s a fact and GOD outweighs their immoral and wicked sinful ways.

Franklin D Roosevelt also packed the courts. Just because the courts say it’s legal, does not make it moral.

Chief Justice John Marshall did when delivering the opinion of the U.S. Supreme Court in Cohen v. Virginia. There he explained:

It is most true that this Court will not take jurisdiction if it should not; but it is equally true that it must take jurisdiction if it should. The judiciary cannot, as the legislature may, avoid a measure because it approaches the confines of the Constitution. We cannot pass it by because it is doubtful. With whatever doubts, with whatever difficulties, a case may be attended, we must decide it if it be brought before us. We have no more right to decline the exercise of jurisdiction which is given than to usurp that which is not given. The one or the other would be treason to the Constitution. Questions may occur which we would gladly avoid, but we cannot avoid them. All we can do is to exercise our best judgment and conscientiously to perform our duty.

Sounds more like the Supreme Court is derelict in their oath of office for avoiding Obama’s eligibility and allowing the controversy

Chief Justice Marshall further explained in Cohen:

That the United States form, for many and for most important purposes, a single nation has not yet been denied. In war, we are one people. In making peace, we are one people. In all commercial regulations, we are one and the same people. In many other respects, the American people are one, and the government, which is alone capable of controlling and managing their interests in all these respects, is the government of the Union. It is their government, and in that character they have no other. America has chosen to be, in many respects, and to many purposes, a nation, and for all these purposes, her government is complete; to all these objects, it is competent. The people have declared that, in the exercise of all powers given for these objects, it is supreme. It can, then, in effecting these objects, legitimately control all individuals or governments within the American territory. The Constitution and laws of a State, so far as they are repugnant to the Constitution and laws of the United States, are absolutely void. These States are constituent parts of the United States. They are members of one great empire — for some purposes sovereign, for some purposes subordinate.

As one of the Cruz distracters stated;

“Cruz’s mother was a US citizen by birth, that means that Ted did not need to go thru the naturalization process. He was a natural born citizen, again needing no naturalization process being born to a US citizen. Natural born has nothing to do with birth location, it’s citizenship status of at least one parent and that was his mom.”

Really?  So Ted Cruz was born in a foreign country to a foreign father (Cruz’s father was a Cuban citizen) and the Naturalization Act of 1790 clearly states the following

In 1790, the Congress answered the question about Natural Born Citizens with the Naturalization Act.  The Act reads in part:

 And the children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond Sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born Citizens:  Provided, that the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States.

 

There is the definition right there.  Children born abroad whose PARENTS are United States citizens and whose fathers have been resident (meaning a CITIZEN) in the United States are considered natural born citizens. Where does it state anywhere that it’s the citizenship of either parent? It doesn’t.

 

Was Ted Cruz’s PARENTS, United States Citizens?  NO! Was Ted Cruz’s father a United States Citizen? NO!

Here is how Rep. John Bingham (Father of the 14th Amendment)  explained “natural born citizenship” on the floor of the House on March 9, 1866:

 “I find no fault with the introductory clause [S 61 Bill], which is simply declaratory of what is written in the Constitution, that every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen….”

 

More from John Bingham;

During a debate (see pg. 2791) regarding a certain Dr. Houard, who had been incarcerated in Spain, the issue was raised on the floor of the House of Representatives as to whether the man was a US citizen.  Representative Bingham (of Ohio), stated on the floor:

“As to the question of citizenship I am willing to resolve all doubts in favor of a citizen of the United States.  That Dr. Houard is a natural-born citizen of the United States there is not room for the shadow of a doubt.  He was born of naturalized parents within the jurisdiction of the United States, and by the express words of the Constitution, as amended to-day, he is declared to all the world to be a citizen of the United States by birth.” (The term “to-day”, as used by Bingham, means “to date”.  Obviously, the Constitution had not been amended on April 25, 1872.)

Notice that Bingham declares Houard to be a “natural-born citizen” by citing two factors – born of citizen parents in the US.

John Bingham, aka “father of the 14th Amendment”, was an abolitionist congressman from Ohio who prosecuted Lincoln’s assassins.  Ten years earlier, he stated on the House floor:

“Every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen.” (Cong. Globe, 39th, 1st Sess., 1291 (1866))

The Unites States Constitution states the following;

Article. II.

Section. 1.

No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

So Ted Cruz fails the Constitutional requirement.

Ted Cruz’s supporters better think twice, they have been forewarned.

Past articles on Ted Cruz’s ineligibility.

Ted Cruz to Launch 2016 Presidential Campaign

Tea Party Nation gets it wrong

 

Obama praises Islam

Obama is not a Christian. Period.

Matthew 7:16

You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?

Matthew 7:15

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.

Obama’s quotes on Islam:

1. “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”

2. “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”

3. “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”

4. “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”

5. “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”

6. “Islam has always been part of America”

7. “we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”

8. “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”

9. “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”

10. “I made it clear that America is not – and will never be – at war with Islam.”

11. “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”

12. “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”

13. “In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.”

14. “Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”

15. “Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality”

16. “The Holy Koran tells us, ‘O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.’”

17. “I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.”

18. “We’ve seen those results in generations of Muslim immigrants – farmers and factory workers, helping to lay the railroads and build our cities, the Muslim innovators who helped build some of our highest skyscrapers and who helped unlock the secrets of our universe.”

19. “That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

20. “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”

Now, let’s compare those quotes to what he has said about Christianity:

1. “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”

2. “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”

3. “Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy?  Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination?  Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?”

4. “Even those who claim the Bible’s inerrancy make distinctions between Scriptural edicts, sensing that some passages – the Ten Commandments, say, or a belief in Christ’s divinity – are central to Christian faith, while others are more culturally specific and may be modified to accommodate modern life.”

5. “The American people intuitively understand this, which is why the majority of Catholics practice birth control and some of those opposed to gay marriage nevertheless are opposed to a Constitutional amendment to ban it. Religious leadership need not accept such wisdom in counseling their flocks, but they should recognize this wisdom in their politics.”

6. From Obama’s book, The Audacity of Hope: “I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex—nor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount.”

7. Obama’s response when asked what his definition of sin is: “Being out of alignment with my values.”

8. “If all it took was someone proclaiming I believe Jesus Christ and that he died for my sins, and that was all there was to it, people wouldn’t have to keep coming to church, would they.”

9. “This is something that I’m sure I’d have serious debates with my fellow Christians about. I think that the difficult thing about any religion, including Christianity, is that at some level there is a call to evangelize and prostelytize. There’s the belief, certainly in some quarters, that people haven’t embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior that they’re going to hell.”

10. “I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell.  I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity.  That’s just not part of my religious makeup.”

11. “I don’t presume to have knowledge of what happens after I die. But I feel very strongly that whether the reward is in the here and now or in the hereafter, the aligning myself to my faith and my values is a good thing.”

12. “I’ve said this before, and I know this raises questions in the minds of some evangelicals. I do not believe that my mother, who never formally embraced Christianity as far as I know … I do not believe she went to hell.”

13. “Those opposed to abortion cannot simply invoke God’s will–they have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths.”

14. On his support for civil unions for gay couples: “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount.”

15. “You got into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

16. “In our household, the Bible, the Koran and the Bhagavad Gita sat on the shelf alongside books of Greek and Norse and African mythology”

17. “On Easter or Christmas Day, my mother might drag me to church, just as she dragged me to the Buddhist temple, the Chinese New Year celebration, the Shinto shrine, and ancient Hawaiian burial sites.”

18. “We have Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, and their own path to grace is one that we have to revere and respect as much as our own”

19. “All of us have a responsibility to work for the day when the mothers of Israelis and Palestinians can see their children grow up without fear; when the Holy Land of the three great faiths is the place of peace that God intended it to be; when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra— (applause) — as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed, peace be upon them, joined in prayer.  (Applause.)”

20. “I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”

We don’t think that Obama is a closet Muslim.  He simply espouses theological universalism, or the idea that all religions have truth in them and somehow all end up in the same place when it comes to eternity.

The problem is that truth, by its very nature, is exclusive.  All religions make exclusive claims – that’s not something that’s unique to Christianity.  As Tim Keller put it, “All claims are exclusive. The Gospel is an exclusive truth but it’s the most inclusive exclusive truth in the world.”

Obama’s idea of pluralism is an interesting one.  He praises Islam for being so “tolerant” and criticizes Christianity for not being accommodating enough to Muslims.  He also says that we must not “slander the prophet of Islam.”  Yet there is no mention of violent, oppressive shariah law, nor is there any mention of the slaughter of Christians in the Middle East at the hands of Muslims.

Obama lauds Islam’s great history yet goes after conservative Christians who want to practice their faith in the public square.  Whether it’s Hobby Lobby or Catholic organizations and charities being discriminated against by Obamacare, Obama has shown little tolerance for those groups when it comes to their free exercise of religion.  This isn’t true pluralism, it’s pluralism on his terms, and it’s disgusting and hypocritical.

Please share this article on Facebook and Twitter so your friends can see just how hypocritical Obama is when it comes to Islam and Christianity.
