PALM BEACH, Fla. â€“ Is President Obama, who once demeaned Jesus' Sermon on the Mount as "radical," actively trying to socialize Jesus and corrupt Christianity?
The answer is yes, according to conservative radio giant Rush Limbaugh, who is claiming the commander in chief is not only trying to socialize America, but also the Christian religion by twisting Scripture.
The top-rated host made the allegation today during discussion of Obama's profession of faith yesterday in Albuquerque, N.M.
Limbaugh focused in on Obama's statement of "being my brother's and sister's keeper, treating others as they would treat me."
"The reason why this is important is there's an effort by the left to say that Jesus was a socialist," said Limbaugh, "and they are using this to turn many evangelical people into global-warming people. We are the stewards of the planet and so forth. There's an ongoing effort here to corrupt Christianity."
During yesterday's backyard town-hall meeting in Albuquerque, Obama had explained:
I'm a Christian, uh, by choice. Um, you know, my family didn't â€“ frankly, they weren't, uh, folks who went to church every â€“ every week. Um, my mother was one of the most spiritual people I knew, but she didn't, uh, raise me in the church. Uh, so I came to, to, uh, my Christian faith later in life, uh, and it was because the, the, the, precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead â€“ being my brother's and sister's keeper, treating others as they would treat me ... also understanding that Jesus Christ dying for my sins spoke to the humility we all have to have as human beings, that we're sinful, and we're flawed, and we make mistakes, and that we achieve salvation through the grace of God. But what we can do, as flawed as we are, is still see God in other people and do our best to help them find their own grace. So that's what I strive to do, that's what I pray to do every day. I think my public service is a part of that effort to express my Christian faith.
