Recent attacks on Sarah Palin, because she is a practicing Christian, have directed the argument in that matter - if a Conservative is a Christian, they must be some Radical Crusader hell bent on converting Americans by the thousands.
The Obamedia has been reporting on half-truths and outright lies regarding Sarah Palin claiming that the war in Iraq is a mission from God - even ABC's Charlie Gibson attempted a hack job attack on Sarah Palin regarding a half-quote from a speech she gave.
The truth of the quote, however, was that Sarah Palin was suggesting that all things we do in the US, be it in war and peace, we should pray that they are being done out of God's Will, not our own - and that prayer should help us determine what is the right course of actions. It was a paraphrase of Abraham Lincoln's belief that what he was doing in maintaining the Union was the will of God, lest the north should not win.
Sarah Palin prays, and is demonized because of it. Because the Liberals want to strike fear in the heart of their fellow man that love of God is wrong? Because Liberals want to start a panic that Christians are hell-bent on bringing the inquisition to the United States? Yes. But it is all lies.
Where Conservatives are hated for their faith, Liberals are embraced for their bravery in standing up for liberal ideals under the tyranny of Christian Values... or it is ignored all together, as if discussing a Liberal's faith is off limits.
In January, Barack Obama gave an interview with Beliefnet.com, in which he CLAIMED HE HEARS THE VOICE OF GOD:
The prayer that I tell myself every night is a fairly simple one: I ask in the name of Jesus Christ that my sins are forgiven, that my family is protected and that I am an instrument of God's will. I'm constantly trying to align myself to what I think he calls on me to do. And sometimes you hear it strongly and sometimes that voice is more muted.Why is it that Charlie Gibson does not berate Obama over the claims that he hears the voice of God? Why doesn't Saturday Night Live do a skit suggesting that because Obama is a Christian that he thinks dinosaurs are a failed animal which lived 4000 years ago?
The answer is simple. The left use religion as a tool to attack the right - claiming that religion is for the fools and ignorant to "cling to". The left have pushed themselves so far from religion or spirituality that to pin someone as religious is to slander them as a radical idiot.
The left embrace the religion of secularism, not of the state but of the self. They embrace the religion of Atheism, forcing the perception that there is no God but the government.
So what problem comes when Barack Obama claims to hear the voice of God? From the left, there is none. They won't acknowledge the claim.
