Obama prevaricates on abortion

When asked about his stance on abortion, Obama is often caught on film prevaricating. What does Obama mean, we could look at abortion with theological and scientific methods, and both are beyond him? Perhaps he really is that stupid and everything moral really IS beyond HIM. But it is not difficult to see that (1) God does not want us to murder babies and (2) our babies are scientifically classified as human while in the womb.

Obama claims to be aware of the "moral difficulty" entailed in abortion. If he knows this, why is he taking an immoral stance? He says he can argue with us if we believe that life begins at conception. That means he admits we're right, because genetically, babies have human DNA and they are certainly alive: they move, kick, and even make noises while in the womb. But he skates right past this issue, pretending we have common ground. What common ground can there be when it comes to saving babies rather than killing them?

Obama then claims we can work together to reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies by convincing people to adopt their babies out. What the heck is he talking about? The moral code that prevents pregnancy is chastity, not adoption. He's just trying to use a smoke and mirrors dance to keep people from asking him why a President of the United States is pro-abortion -- for terminating the lives of the next generation of Americans before they can be born.

I for one am tired of his masquerade. We need a President who is for preserving American lives, not for terminating them.

Education in America

I recently saw a video of Obama talking to kids about education. I have to say that there was nothing substantial in anything Obama said. A few empty "God bless Americas" at the end of his speech don't alter that. Obama promised to get textbooks and computers that the students need to learn from, but did he say anything about looking to God, the ultimate source of intelligence, for guidance? He talked about working hard, but did he talk about the source of our strength being the Rock of our salvation? He talked about how students should never quit, but did he tell us that Jesus never sleeps and never slumbers, but gives power to those who are faint? Moreover, Obama talked about students who "made" the country 75 years ago, but did he talk about the founding fathers of this Christian nation? Then Obama brought in the creators of "twitter" as if they were as important to the country as those who fought in World War II. I don't see it that way, do you?

Lastly, Obama urged students to "make us all proud." How are they going to do that -- by learning about evolution and practicing abortion? That's the kind of America today's Bible-less schools are building. Education America is never going to be on track until it is solidly based on what God taught us rather than what men have to say about things.
