a glimpse into the real Obama on that video

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama and Islam: An Ongoing Saga

Submitted by jennifer solis (United States), Jan 25, 2009 at 21:54

As cool and composed as Obama is, when he starts in on "Which version of the Bible would we teach in our schools?", he becomes uncharacteristically, visibly agitated. It would seem to reveal a seething hatred for the Bible, should one have no view of him to compare.

I wonder - was he citing two seemingly ridiculous examples of Biblical instruction as a way to subliminally show that Islam should be given a fare shake, despite it's scriptural instruction to kill Jews, unbelievers, etc. Poor argument, that. His use of the Sermon on the Mount as a possible application for the depletion of our military is just ridiculous.

Albeit short, I believe the video provides a rare glimps into the Obama psyche - Marxist relativism, contempt for religion, disdain towards our military, empathy towards the Muslim and absolute confidence of the credulity of the American people.
