Christianity in Action – the Obama PresidencyBy
Ever wondered what Christianity looks like in practice? Look no further than… President Obama!
I saw this today at a demonstration at UT-Austin in front of Gregory Gym and the library. Of all the ridiculous things I’ve seen in the past year, I think this takes the cake.
I asked the gentleman how Obama could be “Christianity in action” if it requires aggression against a neighbor to act. His response, I kid you not, was that back in the first century they had despots as leaders, and now we have representative government. After laughing hysterically, I then proceeded to ask how he justifies his task of blowing up the Middle East, I mean, they’re still his representatives of Christ, right? On the contrary: “Love for neighbor cannot be delegated” said Pope Benedict XVI.
I just can’t wait for Obama to go back to DC so he can put more Christianity into action!
I’ll post more about the protest later. Lots of stuff happened…
Thanks to Heather from LP-Texas for taking the picture. Heroic!
