Sen. James Inhofe: “Obama praising Islam, suppressing Judeo-Christian Values”


James Inhofe Opines On How Obama ‘Suppresses Our Judeo-Christian Values’

(Huffington Post)

WASHINGTON — Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) all but accused President Barack Obama Wednesday of promoting Islam while “suppressing our Judeo-Christian values.”

The senior senator from Oklahoma held forth on the Senate floor on the greatness of George Washington, marking the 225th anniversary of the first president’s inaugural address.

Inhofe argued that Washington made clear the Christian God was responsible for the creation of the United States.

“We’re here because of the hand of God,” Inhofe said. “Washington’s leadership was grounded in God, and his leadership was God’s gift.”

He then suggested that Obama is betraying that holy gift, attributing the implication to his constituents.

“Oklahomans regularly ask me — and I don’t really think this is unique just to Oklahoma, I think it can be in almost any state — but how they regularly ask me why we have an administration that suppresses our Judeo-Christian values while praising Islam,” Inhofe said.

He also seemed to say that he agrees with that take on the Obama administration.

“I find it sad that our nation does not have the same belief today that we had back when Washington was president,” Inhofe said. “We’ve become arrogant, inward-focused individuals. Rather than submit to God’s authority, we define truth, justice and morality by what feels good at the time. Today instead of having leaders that protect the church from government, we have leaders that believe it’s government’s job to impose on churches what should be universally upheld as truth.”

      Funny thing is Muslims, Jews and Christians actually share a lot of values.

      It’s not that hard to tell what are the loons up to. After Baroness Cox tells Israeli audience that Islam is using ‘freedoms of democracy to destroy it’, it should be crystal clear; they want to take away Muslims rights

      Ironically, initially it was coined to lessen discrimination and otherizing of Jews but in the past two decades it has been used to exclude other faith traditions, specifically of course Muslims quite often.

      One often hears Islamophobes in the “counterjihad” movement claiming to be defenders of the “Judeo-Christian” West against the spread of Islam and the enfranchisement of Muslims in Western democracies. The term Judeo-Christiangained currency in the middle of the 20th century,

      “promoted by groups which evolved into the National Conference of Christians and Jews, to fight antisemitism by expressing a more inclusive idea of American values rather than just Christian or Protestant.”

      Ironically, in the past several decades and especially since 9/11, Judeo-Christian has most often been used by the rightwing to exclude differing religions and cultures from staking their own claim to Americanness, specifically, to amplify the so-called “Islamic threat.”

      Police: Minnesota teen planned school massacre

      (CNN) — A teenage boy had a plan.

      According to authorities in Waseca, Minnesota, John David LaDue, 17, was going to kill his family, start a diversionary fire, set off bombs at an area school, kill the resource officer there and then shoot students.

      CNN does not usually publish the names of minors charged with crimes but is naming him in this case because his name has been widely reported in his community.

      Frighteningly, police say, LaDue had the resources to carry out such an attack.

      But because of watchful eyes, he is now behind bars.

      “This case is a classic example of citizens doing the right thing and calling the police when things seem out of place. By doing the right thing, unimaginable tragedy has been prevented,” the Waseca Police Department said in a Thursday statement.

      Police were tipped off to the case two days earlier. Chelsie Shellhas called them about someone acting suspiciously at a storage facility.

      “He shut the door, and I thought it looked funny,” she told CNN affiliate WCCO. “Because, normally, we see people come here, and it doesn’t take them 10 minutes to open a storage shed, so that’s why I called it in.”

      When officers arrived, they saw what looked like bomb-making materials in a locker: a pressure cooker, pyrotechnic chemicals, steel ball bearings and gunpowder.

      LaDue went with officers to the police station for an interview.

      Republican extremists made up the word “Judeo Christians” to exclude us Muslims. Judaism and Christianity are different religions; The biggest difference being one believes in Jesus as divine and the other doesn’t . We have similar values yet we’re not included. It’s amazing that in this day and age we have such prejudice people in our gov’t. and we pay their salaries! It’s a big deal, as it should be, when you say something racist but attacking a whole group of people of faith is okay! UNBELIEVABLE! He should be kicked out!
