“And that's how Ted Kennedy became the greatest legislator of our time. He did it by hewing to principle, but also by seeking compromise and common cause — not through deal-making and horse-trading alone, but through friendship, and kindness, and humor." --- statement by President Obama in the eulogy he presented at the memorial service for Senator Teddy Kennedy
It had to be the icing on the cake after all the words of praise and tribute when President B. Hussein Obama took to the podium and declared before the whole world that Teddy Kennedy was truly the “greatest legislator of our time!”
A majority are probably already convinced that this is so – others may have been wavering a bit, but the eloquence and rhetorical skills of the president would convince them rather quickly and the doubts would vanish as rapidly as the morning fog when it is hit by the hot August sun!
But there is a minority that is not only skeptical but have solid grounds for challenging such a statement as to T. Kennedy being the “greatest legislator of our time.”
As noted in a previous post, T. Kennedy supported and pressed for legislation which when held up against God’s clear revelation is found to be weighed in the balances and shown to be very much wanting! His zeal in supporting all that had to do with the deceptive “right” to destroy unborn children and to sanction the “right” to engage in immoral sexual conduct which God in no uncertain terms condemns is an indicator that this man demonstrated an attitude which is the equivalent of spitting in the face of Almighty God. It is this same God Who claims the authority to establish clear standards for human behavior and relationships.
Now the big challenge that remains is this: for Barack Hussein Obama to convince God that T. Kennedy was right on all issues, especially the intentional destruction of unborn children and that it is OK for persons who identify as practicing sodomites or lesbians to engage in sexual activity and to even be “married!”
Throughout history there have been national leaders who have had egos that would make Mt. Everest seem like a tiny mole hill by comparison, who were persuaded that they knew better than the citizens they governed what was best for them, who in their arrogance got extremely upset with anyone who would question their policies, and who, more often than not, embarked on a course of action that eventually caused the nations they were supposed to be leading to experience disaster and eventual collapse! Obama has shown that he fits this mold perfectly!
Even as President Obama takes on more and more the image of Captain Smith surveying the bow of the Titanic sinking beneath the waves of a very frigid Atlantic, it is a given that his supposed gift of oratory and persuasive rhetoric will not cause the Creator of this mighty universe to so much as blink for a split second of time!
Rather it will simply be another leader of a nation doing what all the others who have preceded him have done – when it comes to standing before God, whether leader or common citizen, we won’t do the talking, but rather we will do the listening:
Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. --- Romans 3:19
It will be a drastic change of pace, will it not? A powerful world leader who is used to telling and people listening to whatever it is that he tells, now in the position of having his mouth shut with tongue very still and he is doing the listening while Someone of far greater authority than a puny world leader could ever dream of possessing is now doing the talking – what a sight that will be to behold!
Yes, Virginia, Teddy was dead wrong on some of the most critical moral issues taking place in human history and no one will convince the Creator of this universe otherwise!
For the leaders of this people cause them to err, and those who are led by them are destroyed. --- Isaiah 9:16
