Obama: “Sound Science” and Faith Not In Conflict

Here is Obama’s explanation as to why he is overturning the ban on federal funding of embryonic stem cell research.  Pay attention to his words.

This should come as no surprise to us because he has always supported murdering unborn babies.  What is shocking is how he places science above faith.  He has always claimed to be a person of faith but I don’t know what faith he refers to.  It certainly is not Christianity.  I think his faith is in his political ideals, not the God who created all that is.

Obama said,

In recent years, when it comes to stem cell research, rather than furthering discovery, our government has forced what I believe is a false choice between sound science and moral values. In this case, I believe the two are not inconsistent. As a person of faith, I believe we are called to care for each other and work to ease human suffering.

It all sounds good so far, right?  Well, I have a question for you.  Where do you think these new embryonic stem cells are going to come from?  That’s right…from embryos.  Our government, at the direction of our president, has just said that it is okay to create human beings for the sole purpose of using them as research material.  And our president says that there is no conflict between this “sound science” and a persons faith.  Once again, I must wonder what “faith” is he meaning.

In summary, Obama is basically saying that the ends justify the means.  He is saying that it is okay to create and destroy these “clumps of cells” for the greater good that can come out of it.  These humans beings are expendable in order to achieve his desired results.

Is this what we, as Christians, should believe?  If you are a Christian who supported/supports Obama, is this what you voted for?  Are you having second thoughts now?    YOU SHOULD BE!!

Last-minute Bush Abortion Ruling Causes Furor

A last-minute Bush administration plan to grant sweeping new protections to health care providers who oppose abortion and other procedures on religious or moral grounds has provoked a torrent of objections, including a strenuous protest from the government agency that enforces job-discrimination laws.

The proposed rule would prohibit recipients of federal money from discriminating against doctors, nurses and other health care workers who refuse to perform or to assist in the performance of abortions or sterilization procedures because of their “religious beliefs or moral convictions.”

It would also prevent hospitals, clinics, doctors’ offices and drugstores from requiring employees with religious or moral objections to “assist in the performance of any part of a health service program or research activity” financed by the Department of Health and Human Services.  (click here to read the full International Herald Tribune article)

And this is bad how?  Many of the people quoted in the article seem to say that this is an unnecessary regulation.  I can remember hearing stories of pharmacists being fired for not filling prescriptions for the “morning after pill”.  Click here and here to read about a couple such incidences.  So, it seems that this regulation may indeed be necessary. Sadly, Obama’s aides have already said they will try to rescind the regulation.  I hope they will be unsuccessful in that effort but I fear they will succeed.

You can make the argument that the pharmacists, doctors, etc. should have chosen another profession or discussed their beliefs on such issues with their employers prior to accepting the job and I would not dispute that as a valid point.  At the same time, we already have many protections in our country for various religious beliefs.  This regulation, on the face of it, seems to be basic commen sense.  Read the article and give me your opinion.

Is that question above his pay-grade also?

‘Twas The Night Before The Elections

I received this in an email today.  It is very good so thought I would share.  I don’t know who wrote this or where it came from originally so I can’t give proper attribution.  Let me know what you think.

‘Twas the night before elections

And all through the town

Tempers were flaring

Emotions all up and down!

I, in my bathrobe

With a cat in my lap

Had cut off the TV

Tired of political crap.

When all of a sudden

There arose such a noise

I peered out of my window

Saw Obama and his boys

They had come for my wallet

They wanted my pay

To give to the others

Who had not worked a day!

He snatched up my money

And quick as a wink

Jumped back on his bandwagon

As I gagged from the stink

He then rallied his henchmen

Who were pulling his cart

I could tell they were out

To tear my country apart!

” On Fannie, on Freddie,

On Biden and Ayers!

On Acorn, On Pelosi”

He screamed at the pairs!

They took off for his cause

And as he flew out of sight

I heard him laugh at the nation

Who wouldn’t stand up and fight!

So I leave you to think

On this one final note-

IF YOU DONT WANT SOCIALISM

GET OUT AND VOTE!!!!

Obama’s Tax Plan Explained So Everyone Can Understand It

If you have ever wondered exactly what happens when taxes are increased on the businesses in our country this video will explain it.  Business pay NO taxes.  Let me say that again so you can grasp it.  Business pay NO taxes.  Now you are probably saying “of course they do, they file tax returns don’t they”.  Yes, they do but businesses only collect taxes and remit them.  Taxes are simply a cost of doing business.  When they go up a business has a couple choices, 1) it can absorb the increased cost and survive on less profit, 2) it can cut costs somewhere else to offset the increase in the taxes, or 3) it has to increase the price it charges on the goods or services it produces.  

Most business are not able to absorb the increased cost so they have to pass the cost along to others.  They do this by cutting costs in another area or by increasing their prices (or both).  If they choose to cut costs, their are two areas where this will fall – employees or suppliers.  The business will negotiate a cheaper price from its suppliers, thus passing the increased taxes on to the suppliers (where they cycle continues and is compounded), or the business will cut labor costs (meaning layoffs or salary cuts), thus passing the increased taxes on to their employees.  

ALL TAXES ARE ULTIMATELY PAID BY INDIVIDUALS.  This is basic economics.  When Obama says that he is going to increase taxes on businesses and wealthy people he either does not understand basic economics or he is hoping  that we don’t.  Either way, he is not someone we need as President.  Watch the short video, it explains this well.

Did Obama Really Say This?

I got another one of those chain emails that I normally delete without reading but I read this one.  It has quotes from Obama’s books.  Most are stuff I have heard before but one caught my attention.

From Audacity of Hope:”I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

No page citation was given and I don’t have the book.  No context is given in which the comment was made.  I am curious if this is really in his book or is this a hoax.  Do you know?  I can believe he would have said this but I can also believe people would make this up or take it out of context.
