More Gospel According To BarackTopics: Political News and commentaries
Not that we need yet another reason to want to see this man delegated to the trash heap of "once ran for president" history, however, Scott at Powerline has some commentary on Obama's disgusting views offered at Sunday's Night's Compassion Forum during which Barack Obama responded to questions posed by Campbell Brown, Newsweek editor Jon Meacham, and members of a religious audience at Messiah College in Grantham, Pennsylvania. Apparently the evening was framed as one "with the Democratic presidential candidates to focus on the issues of faith and compassion and how a president's faith can affect us":
At one point Meacham asked Obama to explain his abortion-related comments to the effect that he would not want one of his daughters to be "punished with a baby" if she got pregnant as a child. Exanding on his earlier remarks, Obama explained that he was referring to the case "if, at the age of 12 or 13, they made what I would consider to be a mistake, in having sex or unprotected sex, and ended up getting pregnant."Given that BO is the consummate liberal, I couldn't imagine him responding any less disgustingly. He wouldn't even consider whether a behavior could be good or bad, right or wrong. Yet, it gets worse. As Scott notes, "Expanding on his support for legal abortion because he would not want one of his daughters to be "punished with a baby," Obama further explicated his own text":
Listening to the remarks, I was most struck by Obama's reluctance to describe the hypothetical conduct as simply wrong. It is, rather, "what I would consider to be a mistake." Someone else, of course, might think it fine, and Obama doesn't want to be, well, judgmental.
But he hesitates even at describing what he "would consider to be a mistake." Having sex at age 12 may not be "a mistake," in the gospel according to Barack, unless perhaps it is "unprotected sex." The applicable commandment in the gospel according to Barack is, if a child is to have sex, for goodness' sake use a condom!
And so all I meant was we want to prevent teen pregnancies. And what we don't want to do is to be blind to the possibility that kids will screw up, just like, surprisingly enough, we as adults screw up sometimes.Ugh! Of course why should I be surprised, after all, this man has no feeling or comprehension whatsoever about the value of human life. However, I am sure that this is the first time in my life that I've ever heard anyone refer to having a baby as punishment. Clearly, it is wrong for children to have sex, and just as clearly, the miracle of human life should never be viewed as punishment. Only some one of the very far left could envision a life as punishment.
And, you know, we should factor in the possibility that they make mistakes in our approach to dealing with STDs, which is what I was being asked about at the time.
And we want to make sure that, even as we are teaching responsible sexuality and we are teaching abstinence to children, that we are also making sure that they've got, you know, enough understanding about contraception that they don't end up having much more severe problems because of a dumb mistake.
On the other hand, Democratic presidential candidates discussing "faith and compassion" is just not something I can envision as anything of substance; apparently this is the case at this event, and especially with Obama.
