A LAMB BORN IN BETHLEHEM: Who were the shepherds of Bethlehem that greeted Jesus at the time of his birth? What were the lambs born in Bethlehem used for? When was the Lamb of God really born? The full article below provides astonishing background information of these things.Continue reading
This past year of 2012 has been a strange and troublesome one for many.
Even the usual merriment scheduled for the Christmas season was blighted by grief (Sandy Hook) and disaster (repeated flooding and gales in Europe and tornadoes and snow in the States ).
Not many months before, there was another “sandy” tragedy when that Hurricane devastated portions of the Caribbean and the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern United States during late October 2012.
Add to that the unusual weather all year – droughts, then floods – plus failing crops, continuing violence in the Middle East including the death of four Americans in Benghazi, and this year’s spike in annual epidemics…
Remarks by the President
Washington Hilton Hotel
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. (Applause.) Good evening, everybody. Good evening. I could not be more thrilled to be here tonight — (laughter) — at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. This is a great crowd. They’re already laughing. It’s terrific.
Now, if I do win a second term as President, let me just say something to all the — (applause) — let me just say something to all my conspiracy-oriented friends on the right who think I’m planning to unleash some secret agenda: You’re absolutely right. (Laughter.) So allow me to close with a quick preview of the secret agenda you can expect in a second Obama administration.
In my first term, I sang Al Green; in my second term, I’m going with Young Jeezy. (Laughter.)
MRS. OBAMA: Yeah.
THE PRESIDENT: Michelle said, yeah. (Laughter.) I sing that to her sometimes. (Laughter.)
He sings THAT to her??? Read the lyrics if you can stand to – they are very explicit – but find them here:
THE PRESIDENT: In my first term, we ended the war in Iraq; in my second term, I will win the war on Christmas. (Laughter.)
HUH? Win the WAR ON CHRISTMAS? Did you know there was such a thing? Well, it’s becoming more and more apparent that Christmas is detested by almost everyone for its supposed Christian overtones, and they have been de-christianising it for years. It’s not politically correct to have a religious festival that is so blatantly Christian. So it’s becoming a “winter festival” instead.
“In the past, Christmas-related controversy was mainly restricted to concerns of a public focus on secular Christmas themes such as Santa Claus and gift-giving, rather than what is sometimes expressed by Christians as the real “reason for the season” – the birth of Jesus.
Modern-day controversy occurs mainly in western countries such as the United States, Canada, and to a lesser extent the United Kingdom and Ireland, and usually stems from a contrast between the holiday’s significant social and economic role in these countries and its strong association with Christianity in an increasingly multiculturally sensitive and religiously diversifying society.
In recent decades, public, corporate, and government mention of the term “Christmas” during the Christmas and holiday season has declined and been replaced with a generic term, usually “holiday(s)”, to avoid referring to Christmas by name.
Also, many retailers are asked to greet their customers with “Happy Holidays” or “Season’s Greetings” than with the traditional “Merry Christmas”.
It has also been further argued that as western society continues to diversify culturally and religiously, public recognition of a potentially sectarian holiday, such as Christmas, may be seen as non-inclusive or offensive to non-Christians or non-celebrants in general.”
However, do you want to vote for a man who openly (even in jest) aims to “win the war against Christmas”? – presumably, to completely overturn any religious connection to that time of the year. It’s disturbing to say the least that these are the principles of a man whose words and actions affect many if not most of the nations round the world.
THE PRESIDENT: In my first term, we repealed the policy known as “don’t ask, don’t tell” — (applause) — wait, though; in my second term, we will replace it with a policy known as, it’s raining men. (Laughter.)
July 22, 2011 President Obama formally certified on Friday that the American military is ready for the repeal of the don’t ask, don’t tell policy as Pentagon officials said that nearly two million service members had been trained in preparation for gay men and women serving openly in their ranks. Enactment of the repeal will come in 60 days, on Sept. 20. The two-month waiting period is called for in the legislation passed late last year that ended don’t ask, don’t tell, the 17-year-old law that banned openly gay men, lesbians and bisexuals from military service. As of Sept. 20, service members will no longer be forced to hide who they are in order to serve our country, Mr. Obama said in a statement. Pentagon officials said they would be looking in the next two months at gray areas that might allow them to extend some benefits to same-sex married couples in the military. (Source)
IT’S RAINING MEN
What’s Obama referring to? He’s aiming to push the gay agenda even further!
There’s an ongoing conspiracy theory that says Obama is gay, and was even “married” during his college years and is seen in photographs wearing a wedding ring on his ring finger at that time. A spoof profile that he wrote for college lists one of his accomplishments as “deflecting persistent questions about the ring on my left hand.”
Be that as it may, it’s certain that Obama today does support gay marriage. In addition, his choice of song “Raining Men” is now hailed as a GAY ANTHEM, like “YMCA” by The Village People, and the gay community helped popularize it.
The song was written by Paul Jabara and Paul Shaffer in 1979 originally for Dave Balfour’s album ‘Stars’ (it was eventually discarded),and originally recorded by The Weather Girls in 1982. It was covered by Martha Wash (of The Weather Girls) as a duet with RuPaul in 1997, Geri Halliwell in 2001 and by Young Divas in 2006. The song is hailed as a camp classic and more recently as a dance anthem, gay anthem, and as a classic feminist anthem.
There is a gay blog called “It’s Raining Men” to which I won’t give the link but if you are that interested you can find it yourself on Google, and the strap line reads: “Breaking barriers and giving expression to the gay community” – therefore we have to ask ourselves why, of all songs, Obama would choose this one as his theme and anthem for his second term!
THE PRESIDENT: In my first term, we passed health care reform; in my second term, I guess I’ll pass it again. (Applause.)
I’m not qualified to comment on the Health Care Reforms, but I know they are hotly debated in the States – nonetheless, Obama chose to throw this comment in as another part of his supposed conspiracy agenda. Draw whatever conclusion you like from that!
