In his website he states "I support the complete repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA)." He adds that "As your President, I will use the bully pulpit to urge states to treat same-sex couples with full equality in their family and adoption laws . . . I also believe that the federal government should not stand in the way of states that want to decide on their own how best to pursue equality for gay and lesbian couples — whether that means a domestic partnership, a civil union, or a civil marriage." Emphasis added.
In a July 17th, 2007 speech before the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Barack said "there will always be people, many of goodwill, who do not share my view on the issue of choice. On this fundamental issue, I will not yield and Planned Parenthood will not yield."
What is at the heart of this self-professed Christian? How can he claim Christian compassion on the downtrodden while troddening down on the most vulnerable and innocent? His Christian theology is skewed and it is because he will not accept the founding Christian tenets of belief.
Obama is a Protestant. This is simply one of the many errors espoused by Protestantism. The movement is a Protest against the Catholic Church beginning not with Christ or the Apostles, but rather, with Martin Luther and John Calvin more than 1500 years after Christ entrusted His teachings and His Church to the Apostles. Christ founded one Church (Matthew 16:18) and promised to be with Her "until the end of time" (2 Cor 1:20; 3:16-4:6). Christ also guaranteed the original Church's authenticity (the Catholic Church) by promising the Paraclete (Holy Spirit) to teach the Church "in all things"(Jn 14:17, 26; 16:13; 2 Tim. 1:13-14).
Our Lord giving the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven to the Apostle St. Peter. Depiction of Matthew Chapter 16: "And I say to thee, thou art Peter and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever thou shalt loose on earth will be loosed also in Heaven."
Barack's participation in the Protest Movement joins the idea claiming Christ is a liar and a promise breaker. The claim is that after Christ promised to be with the Church "until the end of time", somewhere between then and the invention of Protestantism, Christ changed His mind and broke His promise by leaving the very Church that He Himself established and promised to never abandon. This absurd claim is just as hurtful to God as the Israelites murmuring against God in the desert before Moses struck the rock for water. It can further be compared to the same people, after crossing the Red Sea and seeing God's promise to them made good time and time again, creating a new religion in the golden calf. The'Protest', over the centuries, has diluted Christ's teachings so much that there is nearly no shred of its original Calvin/Luther teachings including Martin Luther's belief in the Perpetual Virginity of Mary. The movement, in essence, is a protest marching in time against and diluting everything Christ taught and still continues to teach through the Church, including all of Christianity's original moral teachings against euthanasia, abortion, divorce, homosexual marriage, and about salvation. This protest appears in various forms - now over 33,000 different forms including Barack's cult.
Based on Barack's claims that he can support homosexuality and abortion, he obviously believes that he is already 'saved', and can subsequently justify claiming abortion is fine as long as you've declared Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. This error does not square with Christ's treatment of the adulteress. Jesus did not tell Mary Magdalene "you are not a bad person, go and try to ignore people who tell you adultery is wrong." On the contrary, Christ told the adulteress: "go and SIN NO MORE." The notion that we're saved by faith alone does not square either with the teachings of the Early Church Fathers.
We shouldn't be shocked by what Obama suggests as Christian belief. He comes from a long line of 'revisionist' Protestants who deny the authority of the Pope as Christ's Vicar. Obama, Protestant Revisionists, and Modernist Catholics will continue to fulfill 19th c. author Hilaire Belloc's predictions:
"the decay of a religion involves the decay of the culture corresponding to it--we see that most clearly in the breakdown of Christendom today. The bad work begun at the Reformation is bearing its final fruit in the dissolution of our ancestral doctrines--the very structure of our society is dissolving."
On Modernism Belloc observes and further predicts:
". . . a Church of the future within which there will be intensity of devotion, indeed, but that devotion practiced by one small body, isolated and forgotten in the midst of its fellowmen" [and left on one side in the general current of the new Paganism].
"Those nations which had retained the Catholic culture are now in the third generation of anti-Catholic social education. Their institutions may tolerate the Church, but are never in active alliance with it and often in acute hostility."
