Barack Obama rocks XIX: Mugabe has killed his thousands, but Obama his millions...

Mugabe385_354955a (Tim) Here's what I want to ask all the Christian profs fawning over the Christian faith of Senator Barack Obama as well as the Submergent types in lockstep with them: What possible criteria could you use to justify your claim that Senator Obama is a Christian that wouldn't also force you to affirm that Zimbabwe's thug leader, Robert Mugabe, is also a true Christian? Mugabe has killed his thousands, but Obama his millions.

Obama_3 If Obama wins the presidency, the slaughter he will preside over and promote is incomprehensibly larger than even the worst estimates of Mugabe's murderous regime--unless, of course, you are unconcerned about the murder of the newborn, feeble, and unborn children.

But if you are concerned, Mugabe has the innocence of  a child playing in a sandbox compared to the obsccenely wicked slaughter at the center of Senator Obama's campaign platform.

I'm betting most profs who assert that Senator Obama is a true Christian would deny Mugabe's Christian faith. So why the double standard? Why the universal condemnation of Mugabe by the same people given over to the adulation of Barack Obama? Isn't it amazing how Christians regain our moral compass and discernment as soon as the evil being evaluated and condemned is committed by people far away? Particularly Africans.

Last night, I read a profile of Robert Mugabe, the brutal dictator who's plunged his nation of Zimbabwe into death and destruction. He'd be up there near the top of heads of state around the world viewed as pariahs by other nation's leaders. Maybe the very top.

The New Yorker's profile written by Jon Lee Anderson is titled: "Letter from Zimbabwe, The Destroyer: A founding father lays waste to his country." Near the beginning, Anderson informs us Zim's inflation rate is now two hundred and thirty million percent, the unemployment rate is eighty percent, two million Zimbabweans are entirely dependent on aid from NGOs for their daily bread, another two million have fled Zim for refuge in South Africa, twenty percent of the population is infected with H.I.V./AIDS, life expectancy for men and women is about 44 years, starvation is rampant, leaders of political opposition groups are routinely imprisoned, beaten, and murdered, and the list goes on.

Meanwhile, wreathed in jewelry and forty years younger than her husband, Mugabe's second wife, Grace, says because of her narrow feet she can "only wear Ferragamo" shoes...

Known for her Imelda Marcos shopping splurges, she and her husband live in an elite suburb of Harare in a new twenty-five bedroom mansion. The entire nation has been swallowed up whole by Mugabe's violent, rapacious, and entirely corrupt rule in which his cronies and family members swallow the blood Mugabe sucks from his people.

But guess what? Mugabe confesses Jesus Christ. He claims to be a Christian. He's received Trinitarian baptism and regularly takes the Lord's Supper.

Protected by the patronage of his uncle, Mugabe's nephew, Leo, leads a cushioned life. Anderson spent quite a bit of time with Leo, and in the middle of Zim's present crisis, Anderson reports Leo saying:

No one is starving--they are driving nice cars! As a Christian, though, I think it is a challenge by God, and the attention being drawn to Zimbabwe is maybe to highlight that we are the new people of Israel, and that we have our own Moses (Robert Mugabe).

At this, Leo's voluptuous secretary sitting in on the interview "greeted the analogy with an exclamation of delight."

Unlike Christian profs and Submergent religious leaders in this country fawning over bloody Obama, Zim's top Roman Catholic prelate, Archbishop Pius Ncube, speaks firmly and with great courage against his own bloody leader:

I believe government has reached a dangerous stage where it will do anything to cling to power, even at the expense of the people. The president, himself--I do not mind saying this--has lost his mind. How can he be so cruel to his people in the winter season? They have stolen the goods of the people... (T)his is absolutely evil; it shows that the government will stop at nothing to get and keep power.

These people in government worship power. This thing is demonic. Why did the Devil revolt against God? It is because of greed and love of power. The hearts of those in government have been taken over by the devil. ...for the sake of power he was prepared to sacrifice the lives of the people.

Externally, these people [in the Mugabe regime] pretend to be Christian, but dishonor God's teaching of loving another and look out for one another, especially the poor and the weak. ...The country's leadership has shown their total heartlessness. ...They are cruel and heartless and will sacrifice the people.

He [Mugabe] does not apply his faith to his political governance of the country. He totally ignores it. He is hypocritical when it comes to that. Here is a man who goes to Mass, receives Holy Communion, and speaks at church meetings but yet he does not respect basic human rights. He goes to justify himself.

As far as I am concerned he (Mugabe has) shown himself to be untruthful. He has been killing innocent people... He is a murderer.

If the Christian profs and Submergent publicity hounds had one one-hundredth of the Biblical knowledge, spiritual courage, and faith of Archbishop Ncube, every word the good Archbishop said above would be on their lips day after day, hour by hour, as they warned our nation and the rest of the world against wicked Barack Hussein Obama.

Instead, they're shilling for him. It's always been that way:

They are fat, they are sleek, they also excel in deeds of wickedness; they do not plead the cause, the cause of the orphan, that they may prosper; and they do not defend the rights of the poor. "Shall I not punish these people?" declares the Lord, "On a nation such as this shall I not avenge Myself?"

An appalling and horrible thing has happened in the land: the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule on their own authority; and My people love it so! But what will you do at the end of it? (Jeremiah 5:28-31)

Searching for that lost savor of salt

Most Christians say that it's the Devil to blame

But I know, its our own damn fault.

Perhaps Barack and Robert have learned from Joe that life is cheap.

"One death is a tragedy, but a million deaths are a statistic." - Joseph Stalin

Dear Tim:

As you know, Zambia lies just to the north of Zimbabwe. Recently our president died, Levy Patrick Mwanawasa, and Mr. Mugabe attended his funeral.

Several years before his death, President Mwanawasa embraced the Christian faith and my friends tell me it seems to have been very genuine. He attended a small Baptist church, basically in the Southern Baptist (USA) tradition. So the pastor who preached at Mwanawasa's funeral was warmly evangelical and the gospel message and implications were clear.

Of course, the funeral service, including the gospel message was televised. Whenever the camera came across Mr. Mugabe, his head was bent, because of shame, I want to believe.

That remains a key difference. Mr. Mugabe knew he could not raise his head in that type of a setting, while that type of a message was being proclaimed. What would Mr. Obama have done?

I think we all know. His head would have been raised, not bent, his eyes clear and focused, without a hint of doubt, his smile ever-present and calm, no guilt here.

God have mercy.

Dear David,

Yes, and if they stood next to him during such a sermon, Obama's Christian prof sychophants and Submergent shills would be heads high, eyes straight ahead, cheerful smiles, too.

With deep affection,

But David and Tim,

Don't you know that there are "other important Christian issues" like universal health care, the environment, and wages? I heard so myself from that important "Christian law professor" Doug Kmiec on NPR yesterday!

Perhaps when the Obama truth squad comes after preachers for "hate speech," they will wonder if some of the millions slain would have stood up to defend them.

Dear Brothers,

Actually, I have some sorrow for Senator Obama, but great terror for his past and present pastors who have lied to him about Scripture and Christian faith.

Fred,

I think Abp Chaput, here in Denver, has had a word or two to say about Prof Kmiec.

As for Mr. Mugabe and Mr Obama, well the crimes of the former get more publicity because he no longer pretends to be anything but a thug, really. The latter? Methinks a hissssss is in the air.

And on what basis do you justify the "true" christian faith of John McCain? Do you not think he has "murdered" as well? In his wars, lack of care for those dying in poverty, etc. In any case do not look to Washington for a savior.

>Do you not think he has "murdered" as well? In his wars, lack of care for those dying in poverty, etc.

Never encountered a dictionary before?

Exactly, David Gray.

Rob,

I'm, not looking to Washington for a savior. I'd just rather not have one who delights in bring judgment down on me.

But the thing that the Obama camp don't want to think about, in their advocacy of abortion, is that about a third of the abortions in the USA are to black women - compared with their 12 percent of the population. The rate is three times as high as for white women.

There is a reason for that. What is now Planned Parenthood started out to reduce and eliminate undesirables in society. Those who were " colored " were undesirable. Along with " poor white trash ".

Nothing has changed with this group. I cannot understand how anyone in the black community can vote for man who supports a group who wants to wipe out a whole race of people, which he is part of by his father.

This is really something to think about.

For those that claim to believe that human life begins at conception, what is their argument for the distinction between a mass murderer such as Mugabe, Hitler, or Stalin, and a politician that advocates for legal abortion?

I want to think that those on the side of legalized infanticide just don't understand the position, but in reality, I just can't fathom an intelligent person not understanding the reality.

I guess we don't see this as sinister as they aren't coming after us. This is truly disturbing.

And on what basis do you justify the "true" christian faith of John McCain?

No one has done any such thing. On what basis do make the suggestion?

Rob, I don't know about McCain's faith; he's attending a church of similar faith to my own, though not nearly theologically as conservative, but he's not yet obeyed the Lord in baptism, as far as I can tell.

And regarding the "murders" via war; well, how many people was Saddam Hussein allowing to die each year for lack of food and medicine while he was building his palaces? Unless you believe the Lancet study, the past five years in Iraq have not been nearly as lethal as the five years before them. Just wars save lives, friend.

And people dying of poverty? Sorry, friend, the chief things killing the poor in this country are not starvation and lack of medical care, but rather excess of food and crime. Unless you call a vote for cheese distribution "murder," you're going to have a tough time pinning that one on McCain.

Particularly Africans.

There are some who believe that Obama is African -- Kenyan to be exact, and not legally qualified to be President (or Senator). The lack of verification of his citizenship and the withheld documents looks too much like a cover-up. Too many questionable, murky things about his history.

Interesting the media is trying to dig up any little thing it can about Palin, but are not concerned about Obama's actual citizenship.

Supposedly, his own paternal grandmother says she was there when he was born in Kenya.

>I don't know about McCain's faith; ... but he's not yet obeyed the Lord in baptism, as far as I can tell.

Regarding Senator McCain’s baptism or lack thereof:

Senator McCain was raised in the Episcopal Church where undoubtedly he was baptized as an infant. Gene Edward Veith’s article at the link below throws some light on this issue.

Wow - this is like stumbling into an alternate universe. If you really believe that presiding over a government policy of legal abortion is equal to presiding over a government policy of destroying the lives of opponents and innocents on a mass scale, then frankly you are, in my view, the quintessence of modern ideological thinking - the kind of thinking that previous ages of humanity would not have understood, and which represents the triumph of the rationalist logic of Western philosophy (and not of the Christian sort) over any kind of ordinary human emotion or judgment. If life = from conception on, ergo, abortion = murder. If you think anyone but someone born after, say, 1850 could make sense of that kind of reasoning, you're ignorant. You claim to be against modernity but you are its quintessence in your ruthlessness, your captivation by ideology, and your need to dominate emotion by (supposedly) rational calculations.

The "New Yorker" reports McCain has not been baptized. I trust their fact-checkers.

Wow - this is like stumbling into an alternate universe.

Yeah, it's called Christianity, the type not steeped in antinomianism. You'll find it between Genesis and Revelation with layovers in Exodus 20 and Matthew 5.

the kind of thinking that previous ages of humanity would not have understood,

Who are you and what do you know about those things? It is God Himself that chose the Greek language for the New Testament and the brilliant and logical mind of one like Paul through which we have a substantial portion of it. Hello? You're not going to bore us with the old narrative vs propositions are you? If you intend to make that point then drop your attempts at making a logically developed polemic and tell us a little story.

and which represents the triumph of the rationalist logic of Western philosophy.......If you think anyone but someone born after, say, 1850 could make sense of that kind of reasoning, you're ignorant.

More difficult, little Ricky, is accepting the obvious fact that the products of todays state schools are ignorant of the disciplines of logic and rhetoric. It's depressing.

Being incapable of connecting the propagation and support of laws that legitimize and legalize infanticide with the infanticide itself is incredible enough for someone claiming the name of Christ. But here you've added your ignorance of God's law to it. I suggest you take the advice Paul gives in 2Cor 13:5.

But, Mark, Anonymous Ricky used the word "quintessence" twice. We are probably out of our league. Thank God.

Ah yes ether. One wonders whether it is being looked at or inhaled.

;)

Wow...reading Ricky's comment caused more brain damage than huffing the assorted buffet of chemicals in one's kitchen cupboard.

I don't mean that in a quintessentially Western way ;)

Ricky, exactly what do you call the slaughter of innocents? Yes, NARAL and PP may have convinced you that they're "not really human." In the same way, a hero of Margaret Sanger (founder of Planned Parenthood) convinced his country that certain groups of people weren't human, either.

Your pro-Obama Christian profs have been strangely silent around here lately, Tim.
