Obama and his friends

Reader comment on item: How Barack Obama Sees the United States

Submitted by Moshe A (United States), Sep 4, 2012 at 10:48

I wrote a lengthy article on Obama and his Muslim friends several years ago at www.ministryreportcard.com Look for the Obamas friends tab.

It may not have been written in "journalistic style," nevertheless, the research is there and the citations. I pointed out Obama's friends long ago and I thank God people with a soap box can reach the ears of those I could not. So the question is; should my motives matter or is what I have to say what matters?

It is true that birds of a feather, flock together. The Bible says we may know a person from their fruit. As it says in Matthew 7: "You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?" This is a great way to examine people. If you have socialist roots then you will also have socialist fruits. A persons fruit will break through in time because they WANT the world to know what they believe.

This happens in both religion and politics. People are generally very crafty. We will hide our beliefs for a time in order for the dust to settle or to gain a reputation, but after that, we always seek out converts over to our positions/convictions.

We always need to be inspecting peoples fruit. Many may not like the research of Dinesh or the others like him who are outspoken. Who cares if this is about publicity or it is done for some other gain. This topic is not about Dinesh. This topic is about fruits of Obama. What of the substance of the argument; does it have validity? Is the research done by Dinesh from primary sources or is it second hand?

MANY are beating this same drum, saying "warning, warning, danger, danger." I wear a shirt that says "No Sharia Law" You can look at me and say "what a creep" or you can ask yourself "what is Sharia Law-is it dangerous to America?" The focus should not be on the personality of the writer. It should be about the content.

What fruit do you hear and what actions do you see coming from Obama and his friends? That is what we need to concentrate on. It is not "by their reputation or their motives you shall know them. It is "by their fruits we shall know them."
