The President speaking in those terms and references has nothing to to with your quote, which lists specific laws congress can not make. That does not imply the President can not make reference to religious standards of values.
Notice I mention the "Exclusionary Rule" here as well......which in the manner it is enforced puts limits on the people...contrary to Amendment 1 to the Constitution... and frees government to Talmudic like..work around Amendment 1.
Your country is not void of religious reference from your money to the court houses, and symbols everywhere in the goverenment.
Religious symbols yes..but Christian ..no. What we have here is the president mentioning from the Bible and the Lord Jesus Christ...and using/misusing this line of thought to push his program of tax the rich. I don't buy into it and think it is just another divide and conquer program...and this administration is willing to misquote and deceive the public on it to get support.
It is politics from the pulpit... in very bad taste and method. It is also not the Exclusionary Rule nor Separation of Church and State.
Concerning our monies...when we have switched to phony fiat monies and away from a system of just weights and measures...no amount of preaching from the Pulpit can hide this phony system from those who know what it is. No amount of symbols on the monies can hide the switch from Just weights and measures. Just balances and Just scales...to unjust weights and measures.
Such an unjust system of Weights and Measures comes from the one the Bible describes as the Liar and Deceiver. The Counterfeiter.
Any such description of symbols on the monies is bogus when the money itself is a unjust system of weights and measures.
And further more ..if you go back and look at some of the olde notes...which stated on them just above the dollar amount..."Will Pay to the Bearer on Demand."
If you flip these notes over on the back ..you will see that "In God We Trust" is not on them. For these notes in the day were redeemable at any bank or Treasury for the real stuff ..in Silver. You did not need " In God We Trust " when you could get hard money for the notes. A just weight and Measure to the dollar weight in silver. In the gold days..you could likewise get the gold to the dollar weight.
Here is a link to an olde $5.00 silver certificate and on the green side above the Lincoln memorial ..the "In God We Trust" is not there. http://www.dollardealwholesale.com/5-Si ... _p_69.html
Most of us no longer know this about the notes or the silver or gold now that we have gone to public school.
I have several of these olde notes.
We are a country of religious freedom, yet we expect our President to not relate or invoke a single religious overtone, while we look to see if He has a regular church on sunday.
I agree with what some of the other posters here state..about a double standard. Which is why I began this thread.
I also know that when they get done taxing the "Rich" they will be coming for the rest of us ..what ever is left of the middle class.
I also know that they are no longer talking about "Balancing a Budget." I have not heard this term for a long time now in the face of increasing government deficits. How soon we forget.
What the president is looking for here is public support for a blank check. I don't have to be educated to know this. He is using/misusing and parasiting off peoples easily lead emotions now that they have a public school and television/movie education in emotions. This sell...the Rich..is easily put over on an unthinking and undisciplined heavily emoting people.
And to me the president has the very bad taste to carry this on in a church...from the pulpit.
This is to me mixing church and state....politics and religion.
Now if the president wants to be good with God...and do right by God and the people..he should be talking on the subject of Unjust weights and measures and how the government is counterfeiting the money of this land with phony fiat money issuance on the deficit. Now he would be Scripturally Correct and Just..in speaking from the pulpit because this is in fact in the Bible.
The president would also be teaching the flock..not catering to their emotions as does a politician...ie..seducing them.
I am not just picking on the President here.nor his party...because almost none of the current crop of Presidential Republican Candidates want to talk on this issue as well. Thus meaning to me that they are a huge part of the problem as well and I put no confidence in them.
I know of only one candidate well versed in a system of Just Weights and Measures and he seldom speaks on it ..and for good reason....he wants to live.
We elect a leader with high moral standards, hopefully, and elect someone who has a declared religion and who is a regular worshiper.
I am going to disagree with you here...greatly disagree here.
It is obvious by the choices we as Americans have been making in the past and the choices offered by the political parties that only the "Appearance" of Moral standards is required for office. Only the "Appearance" of religious beliefs is required. The media/MSM is here to take care of the rest. This should be obvious to thinking Americans.
The actual working beliefs and standards for the office of President of the United States are not that high. The conduct of several of recent presidents clears this up greatly. How soon Americans forget if they were in fact even aware of this simplicity.The requirements/standards for President of the United States is not as high as we are misled to believe.
