Twilight Zone

Last election, President Barack Obama presented himself to the people as the reincarnation of Martin Luther King Jr. This election he seems to have re-invented himself as an Apostle of Christ claiming, at the National Prayer Breakfast last week, that his economic policies are in line with Jesus’ teachings. He has thus gone from the laughable to the blasphemous.

Obama pales in comparison to King — does he really think that Jesus sanctions his anti-life policies of contraception, homosexuality and abortion? Does he really believe that the murdering of innocent children through abortion is good for the economy? Whose economy? On top of that he has the twisted audacity to suggest those who oppose his anti-life policies are chattels to a “phoney religiosity.” Citizens, don’t be fooled again!

Should we give Obama another term? If so, recall that “You are about to enter another dimension. A dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination. That’s the signpost up ahead — your next stop, the Twilight Zone!”
