Favorite Son: Obama Suddenly Discovers Jesus, Says Jesus Strongly Recommended Dodd-Frank; Jesus Also Helped Draft ObamaCare

People knock the electoral process.

They say it's ugly. They say it reduces people to their basest, most selfish behavior.

Well let me tell you that sometimes it results in wonderful things, too.

Sometimes, for example, a difficult campaign actually causes a man to find religion, to convert to Christianity, and not a quiet, humble form of Christianity, but a Testify From The Rooftops form of it.

Isn't that a good thing?

"And so when I talk about our financial institutions playing by the same rules as folks on Main Street, when I talk about making sure insurance companies arenít discriminating against those who are already sick, or making sure that unscrupulous lenders arenít taking advantage of the most vulnerable among us, I do so because I genuinely believe it will make the economy stronger for everybody. But I also do it because I know that far too many neighbors in our country have been hurt and treated unfairly over the last few years, and I believe in Godís command to 'love thy neighbor as thyself.'"

"I know the version of that Golden Rule is found in every major religion and every set of beliefs ó from Hinduism to Islam to Judaism to the writings of Plato," Obama added.

The president said he often falls to his knees in prayer, and emphasized the role of his religious values in determining where to lead the country.

"Iíd be remiss if I stopped there; if my values were limited to personal moments of prayer or private conversations with pastors or friends. So instead, I must try ó imperfectly, but I must try ó to make sure those values motivate me as one leader of this great nation."

Obama maintained that his call for the wealthiest to give up their tax breaks, he's doing so out of economic necessity, but also in line with biblical teachings.
"And I think to myself, if Iím willing to give something up as somebody whoís been extraordinarily blessed, and give up some of the tax breaks that I enjoy, I actually think thatís going to make economic sense. But for me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesusís teaching that 'for unto whom much is given, much shall be required,'" Obama said, noting Jewish and Islamic teachings say much the same thing.

In related news, you know who just won a dinner with Michele and Barack Obama? Jesus did, that's who.


The Absolute Separation of Church and State and Elimination of Religious Impulse from Government Policy

The Constitution demands no less.
