Calvinism blasphemes the Living God

From here:

A kind lady writes of Romans 9:
"it then goes on to say that they are “prepared for destruction” and then contrasts them with “vessels of mercy, which he has prepared beforehand for glory”. If the contrast was not there, I think it could certainly be describing us all who at some point were objects of wrath, but the analogy fails for me if it’s not talking about two distinct groups of people."
In that particular verse there is a distinction being made, but it is not between those created for life and those predestined to hell. I bring up "objects of wrath" to point out that all of us are by nature in that category. Would the Calvinist say, "God created all of us for destruction, but then created some of us again for life"?

In our wisdom we assume sometimes that which God does not say, which is why He warns us to speak only His words.

What does God say? Does He have mercy on some as the Calvinists teach, or does He have mercy on all?
"For God has consigned all to disobedience, that he may have mercy on all" (Romans 11:32).
The author observes also,
"You say that Calvinism denies God’s kindness, forbearance, and patience to many. I think a Calvinist would say that it is God who does that."
The God of the Bible has had mercy on all but, as you state correctly, "a Calvinist would say it is God who does that."

Clearly, it is not God Who refuses His mercy to some, it is the Calvinist, by which he blasphemes the Living God.

Let him be president of Kenya. Or Indonesia.

But not America.

Despite his serious flaws, at least Bill Clinton was an American. (the Annenberg Political Fact Check, part of the Annenberg Public Policy Center and tied to the Chicago Annenberg Project for which Obama worked and from which Obama directed millions of dollars to terrorist William Ayers, his murderer wife Bernardine Dorhn, Irreverend Jeremiah Wright, ACORN, and other anti-American radicals -- admits that Obama possessed Kenyan citizenship until the age of 21. (That might help to explain Obama's aiding Raila Odinga, Kenya's murderous Thug-in-Chief who promised Muslims there to institute Sharia.)

What of Indonesia? According to the registration card released by the Fransiskus Assisi school in Indonesia, B. Hussein Obama was a citizen of Indonesia.

Is he still?

Barack Hussein Obama, the next American/Kenyan/Indonesian president!

Muslim monster and Obama benefactor Khalid al-Mansour incites coreligionists to dismember whites

You get the one, you get those other ones.

Voting for Obama? This is whom you support:

So, Allah wants white people butchered? Imagine if one of McCain's allies and benefactors made such a statement about any group of people. Conservatives are eviscerated over sincere, orthodox Christianity, where is the MSM over this?

How is it that Obama's mentors, advisers, and friends are racist, anti-Semitic, (mostly) Muslim terrorists?

This is more than a double standard. This is treason. A "person" like this has no place in a decent and free society.

Thomas Sowell nails the essential distinction between Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin

Which is the essential distinction between Left and Right.

From here:
. . . The issue that is raised most often is [Sarah Palin's] relative lack of experience and the fact that she would be "a heartbeat away from the presidency" if Senator John McCain were elected. But Barack Obama has even less experiencenone in an executive capacity — and his would itself be the heartbeat of the presidency if he were elected.

Sarah Palin's record is on the record, while whole years of Barack Obama's life are engulfed in fog, and he has had to explain away one after another of the astounding and vile people he has not merely "associated" with but has had political alliances with, and to whom he has directed the taxpayers' money and other money.

Sarah Palin has had executive experience — and the White House is the executive branch of government. We don't have to judge her by her rhetoric because she has a record.

We don't know what Barack Obama will actually do because he has actually done very little for which he was personally accountable. Even as a state legislator, he voted "present" innumerable times instead of taking a stand one way or the other on tough issues.

"Clean up the mess in Washington"? He was part of the mess in Chicago and lined up with the Daley machine against reformers.

He is also part of the mess in Washington, not only with numerous earmarks, but also as the Senate's second largest recipient of money from Fannie Mae, and someone whose campaign has this year sought the advice of disgraced former Fannie Mae CEO Franklin Raines, who was at the heart of the subprime crisis.

[. . .]

Sarah Palin is the one real outsider among the four candidates for the presidency and vice-presidency on the Republican and Democratic tickets. Her whole career has been spent outside the Washington Beltway.

More than that, her whole life has been outside the realm familiar to the intelligentsia of the media. She didn't go to the big-name colleges and imbibe the heady atmosphere that leaves so many feeling that they are special folks. She doesn't talk the way they talk or think the way they think.

Worse yet, from the media's perspective, Sarah Palin does not seek their Good Housekeeping seal of approval.

Much is made of Senator Joe Biden's "experience." But Frederick the Great said that experience matters only when valid conclusions are drawn from it.

Senator Biden's "experience" has been a long history of being on the wrong side of issue after issue in foreign policy. He was one of those Senators who voted to pull the plug on financial aid to South Vietnam, which was still defending itself from Communist invaders after the pullout of American troops.

Biden opposed Ronald Reagan's military buildup that helped win the Cold War. He opposed the surge in Iraq last year.

Sarah Palin will not be ready to become President of the United States on the first day that she and John McCain take office. Nobody is.

But being Vice President is a job that can allow a lot of time for studying, and everything about Governor Palin's career says that she is a bright gal with her head on straight. The country needs that far more than it needs people with glib answers to media "gotcha" questions.

Whatever the shortcomings of John McCain and Sarah Palin, they are people whose values are the values of this nation, whose loyalty and dedication to this country's fundamental institutions are beyond question because they have not spent decades working with people who hate America. Nor are they people whose judgments have been proved wrong consistently during decades of Beltway "experience."

It takes one to know one

So, does this make Gadhafi an Islamophobe?

And if Obama's got nothing to hide, why all the lies and obfuscation?

Here's the video:

An enemy of America exposes B. Hussein Obama.

Add Qaddafi to a list of supporters that includes Iran, Raila Odinga, Rashid Khalidi, and Bill Ayers, an adviser to a Saudi prince, a CAIR trial lawyer, and two members of his own campaign with ties to Muslim terrorist groups (not to mention "people from the Islamic world").

Apparently, they were all "just people from Obama's neighborhood."

When all your neighbors are terrorists, it's time to move.

From here:
Sen. Barack Obama is a Muslim of Kenyan origins who studied in Islamic schools and whose campaign may have been financed by people in the Islamic and African worlds, Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi said during a recent televised national rally.

"There are elections in America now. Along came a black citizen of Kenyan African origins, a Muslim, who had studied in an Islamic school in Indonesia. His name is Obama," said Gadhafi in little-noticed remarks he made at a rally marking the anniversary of the 1986 U.S. air raid on his country.

The remarks, translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute, MEMRI, were aired on Al Jazeera in June.

"All the people in the Arab and Islamic world and in Africa applauded this man," continued Gadhafi. "They welcomed him and prayed for him and for his success, and they may have even been involved in legitimate contribution campaigns to enable him to win the American presidency. "We are hoping that this black man will take pride in his African and Islamic identity, and in his faith, and that [he will know] that he has rights in America, and that he will change America from evil to good, and that America will establish relations that will serve it well with other peoples, especially the Arabs [sic]," Gadhafi said.

Gadhafi went on to lament statements Obama made at a June 4 address to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in which the presidential candidate stated if he is elected president, "Jerusalem would remain the capital of Israel and it must remain undivided." But it seems Gadhafi was not aware that the next day, during a CNN appearance, Obama explained he meant Jerusalem shouldn't be physically divided with a partition and was not referring to the city remaining in exclusively Jewish hands.

Stated Gadhafi: "But we were taken by surprise when our African Kenyan brother [Obama], who is an American national, made statements (about Jerusalem) that shocked all his supporters in the Arab world, in Africa, and in the Islamic world.

"We hope that this is merely an elections 'clearance sale,' as they say in Egypt - in other words, merely an elections lie. As you know, this is the farce of elections - a person lies and lies to people, just so that they will vote for him, and afterwards, when they say to him, 'You promised this and that,' he says: 'No, this was just elections propaganda.' This is the farce of democracy for you. He says: 'This was propaganda, and you thought I was being serious. I was fooling you to get your votes.'

[. . .]

Gadhafi went on to express his hope if elected Obama will implement a "one state solution" to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, meaning Israel would be flooded with millions of Palestinian Arabs who would terminate the country's Jewish nationality.
Sure sounds like he knows Obama.

Here's more details from people who were actually from Mr. Obama's neighborhood:
Obama repeatedly has denied he is a Muslim. His campaign site states: "Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised as a Muslim, and is a committed Christian."

But as WND has reported, public records in Indonesia listed Obama as a Muslim during his early years, and a number of childhood friends claimed to the media Obama was once a mosque-attending Muslim.

Obama's campaign several times has wavered in response to reporters queries regarding the senator's childhood faith.

Commenting on a recent Los Angeles Times report quoting a childhood friend stating Obama prayed in a mosque "something the presidential candidate said he never did," Obama's campaign released a statement explaining the senator "has never been a practicing Muslim."

Widely distributed reports have noted that in January 1968, Obama was registered as a Muslim at Jakarta's Roman Catholic Franciscus Assisi Primary School under the name Barry Soetoro. He was listed as an Indonesian citizen whose stepfather, listed on school documents as "L Soetoro Ma," worked for the topography department of the Indonesian Army.

Catholic schools in Indonesia routinely accept non-Catholic students but exempt them from studying religion. Obama's school documents, though, wrongly list him as being Indonesian.

After attending the Assisi Primary School, Obama was enrolled "also as a Muslim, according to documents" in the Besuki Primary School, a public school in Jakarta.

Laotze blog, run by an American expatriate in Southeast Asia who visited the Besuki school, noted: "All Indonesian students are required to study religion at school, and a young 'Barry Soetoro,' being a Muslim, would have been required to study Islam daily in school. He would have been taught to read and write Arabic, to recite his prayers properly, to read and recite from the Quran and to study the laws of Islam."

Indeed, in Obama's autobiography, "Dreams From My Father," he acknowledged studying the Quran and describes the public school as "a Muslim school."

"In the Muslim school, the teacher wrote to tell mother I made faces during Quranic studies," wrote Obama.

The Indonesian media have been flooded with accounts of Obama's childhood Islamic studies, some describing him as a religious Muslim.

Speaking to the country's Kaltim Post, Tine Hahiyary, who was principal of Obama's school while he was enrolled there, said she recalls he studied the Quran in Arabic.

"At that time, I was not Barry's teacher, but he is still in my memory" claimed Tine, who is 80 years old.

The Kaltim Post said Obama's teacher, named Hendri, died.

"I remember that he studied 'mengaji (recitation of the Quran)," Tine said, according to an English translation by Loatze.

Mengaji, or the act of reading the Quran with its correct Arabic punctuation, is usually taught to more religious pupils and is not known as a secular study.

Also, Loatze documented the Indonesian daily Banjarmasin Post interviewed Rony Amir, an Obama classmate and Muslim, who described Obama as "previously quite religious in Islam."

"We previously often asked him to the prayer room close to the house. If he was wearing a sarong (waist fabric worn for religious or casual occasions) he looked funny," Amir said.

The Los Angeles Times, which sent a reporter to Jakarta, quoted Zulfin Adi, who identified himself as among Obama's closest childhood friends, stating the presidential candidate prayed in a mosque, something Obama's campaign claimed he never did.

[. . .]

Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum, notes the Tribune article "cited by liberal blogs as refuting claims Obama is Muslim" actually implies Obama was an irregularly practicing Muslim and twice confirms Obama attended mosque services.

In a free-ranging interview with the New York Times, Obama described the Muslim call to prayer as "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset."
As is the Black Speech of Mordor to an orc, or raging, spittle-laced German to a Nazi.
The Times' Nicholos Kristof wrote Obama recited, "with a first-class [Arabic] accent," the opening lines of the Muslim call to prayer.

The first few lines of the call to prayer state:
Allah is Supreme!
Allah is Supreme!
Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that Muhammad is his prophet ...

By their fruit you will know him

You can tell a lot about a person by his friends.

William Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Michael Pfleger, Tony Rezko, Saul Alinsky, Rashid Khalidi, Khalid al-Mansour, Mazen Asbahi, James Johnson, Franklin Raines, and CAIR lawyer Joe Sandler. And don't forget socialist New Party and vote-stealing, Republic-undermining ACORN, fed by our own tax dollars.

Obama's benefactors, advisers, best friends, and mentors are terrorists, racists, radicals, thieves, and Muslims (a sort of "all the above"). Following is a summary of a report exposing the depth of Obama's ties to a Kenyan butcher who caters to Muslim terrorists.

If McCain and Palin don't expose this -- and you can be sure the Obama Media won't -- they will have failed America.

From WND, Obama's ties to ally of Muslims:
Obama and Odinga have been in direct contact since the senator's visit to Kenya in 2006.

Obama remained in active phone contact with Odinga through the New Hampshire Democratic Party primary in January. The Illinois senator continued to support Odinga, turning a blind eye to an agreement signed with Muslims and the post-election violence instigated as part of the campaign strategy.

Obama has advised Odinga on campaign strategy and helped the Kenyan politician raise money in the U.S. for his presidential campaign in the East African nation.

The memorandum of understanding signed Aug. 27, 2007, by Odinga, representing the Orange Democratic Movement, and Sheik Abdullahi Abdi, the chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum, has been confirmed as a genuine document.

An eight-page document drafted for Odinga as an executive summary of his campaign strategy, entitled "Positioning and Marketing of the Orange Democratic Movement and the People's President – Hon. Raila A. Odinga," that was allegedly prepared by the party's core strategy team has also been verified as a valid document.

Odinga's 2007 presidential campaign strategy called for exploiting anti-Kikuyu tribal sentiments, claiming victory and charging voter fraud even if the campaign knew the election had been legitimately lost. Odinga also was willing to fan the flames of ethnic tribal tensions and use violence as a last resort by calling for mass action that led to the destruction of properties, injuries, loss of life and the displacement of over 500,000 Kenyans. The purpose was to compel the Electoral Commission of Kenya to declare him the winner or enable him to declare himself the winner by force.

Odinga has not completely fulfilled his campaign promises to the Muslims who voted for him, and he continues to cause concern among Kenyans, since he has not declared his position on the Islamic law in the country.
Alinsky would be proud. So would Mohammed.

Hail Barack Hussein Obama, Muslim-in-Chief!
