Cafeteria Christianity; Cafeteria Catholicism
Barack Obama is the epitome of cafeteria Christianity while his partner and the Administration’s thought-leader (Joe Biden, not Michelle Obama) is the face of cafeteria Catholicism.
And just as you can pick and choose at a cafeteria, Barry and Joe have picked and chosen.
Traditional Christian and Catholic stances on homosexual marriage, abortion, black-liberation theology, illegitimacy, right and wrong absolutes, and a guilt-free hook-up culture (pre-marital sex, homosexual sex, and extra-marital sex)? On such topics the Administration has de-selected traditional guidance.
On topics like the state stepping in to provide “free” food stamps, Obamaphones, public housing, healthcare, contraception, cash benefits, and high-speed internet, beating our swords into plowshares, turning the other cheek as Americans are murdered in Benghazi, and rendering unto Caesar what is Caesar’s? With these, Christian and Catholic guidance is claimed.
If you harbor politically incorrect ideas, you’re guilty of one or more self-selected hate/thought crimes. If you want to abort a child, it’s a state-sanctioned issue of personal choice. If you prefer Dr. Pepper over Coke, it’s an issue of personal taste (so long as neither are super-sized). If you prefer homosexual relationships over heterosexual relationships, you were born that way.
Finally, does Mr. Obama think his mother was “punished with a baby”? (Based on his record, America has certainly been so punished…)
P.S.—if a man in a homosexual marriage (or is the term actually an oxymoron?) cheats on his partner, is that adultery? So much to litigate, so little time. And on a related note, is homosexual marriage an invention of the legal community?
