What Chairman Zero Really Believes

The White House was so taken aback by polls suggesting that a significant minority suspect that BHO is a Muslim that they went out of their way to protest (too much, methinks) that he’s a Christian; almost like they think there’s something wrong with being a Muslim.

Deputy White House Communications Director Jen Psaki told CNN. “He prays every day, he seeks a small circle of Christian pastors to give him spiritual advice and counseling, he even receives a daily devotional that he uses each morning.

That kind of thing pings my bullshit detector. I don’t think narcissistic egomaniacal sociopaths like BHO worship anyone other than themselves. (That goes for Pelosi and Reid, too.)  But Nice Deb has some interesting background on Obama’s “spiritual advisor.”

Obama’s latest spiritual adviser is another hyper-political liberation theology adherent.

Jim Wallis, according to Discover the Networks:

  • Activist preacher and editor of the leftwing Christian magazine Sojourners
  • Democratic Party operative
  • Apologist for communist atrocities in Cambodia and Vietnam
  • Dedicated foe of capitalism
  • Contends that Biblical scripture calls for large central government to aid the poor

Following the 1979 refugee crisis in Vietnam, Wallis lashed out at the desperate masses fleeing North Vietnam’s communist forces by boat. These refugees, as Wallis saw it, had been “inoculated” by capitalist influences during the war and were absconding “to support their consumer habit in other lands.” Wallis then admonished critics against pointing to the boat people to “discredit” the righteousness of Vietnam’s newly victorious Communist regime.

Also…

Wallis also smeared the Tea Party Movement with the charge of racism: “There is something wrong with a political movement like the Tea Party which is almost all white. Does that mean every member of the Tea Party is racist? Likely not. But is an undercurrent of white resentment part of the Tea Party ethos, and would there even be a Tea Party if the president of the United States weren’t the first black man to occupy that office?”

You can see why Obama loves this guy, and why the Democrat Party looks to him for spiritual guidance.

    The Wallis appointment highlights that while Obama is not a Muslim, he’s not a Christian either. His other current “spiritual advisor” is the Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell, the real estate speculator/megachurch preacher/wealth redistributionist guy who convinced Bush that first-time low-income homebuyers need zero downpayment mortgages so they can have just as nice a house as anybody else. It’s been two years since Obama had to leave Trinity United, after the general public beagan to get an idea of what Rev. Wright’s church was really like. (James Edwards called it a Black Muslim church in Christian drag), and he’s yet to find a new church. He was raised by his atheist mother in a liberal tradition that despises religion. Any religious expression is merely a prop to this man. You are right, it is natural that Obama would pick a guy like Wallis whose religious pronouncements are nothing but cover for leftist politcs.
