Via Instapundit (peace be upon him), Michael Barone notes that President Obama believes that material success is a gift, rather than a result of our own efforts.
Interestingly enough, a lot of evangelical Christians think the same way. We pray for God’s blessings and acknowledge that every good thing we have comes from Him.
And I’m sure Obama hit some similar points during his talk. Right? No? He was just talking more about how all prosperity flows from government programs? Hey, big surprise.
But notice, in this instance and others, how Obama’s comments about government are similar to Christians’ comments about God. His unshakable faith in the wisdom and power of government is that of a sold-out, to-the-bone, religious true believer.
And as we Bible-thumpers like to say, “Out of the fullness of the heart, the mouth speaks.” So don’t be surprised to hear more like this from our Religious Fanatic in Chief.
