About That Georgetown Speech

Let me let you in on a secret: Big Guy loves American Catholics, which his why he speaks so often at Catholic places, like he did at Georgetown today and will later this year at Notre Dame. He like Catholics because so many of them like it both ways. They are politically liberal, supporting things like abortion and stem cell research and gay marriage, when their faith does not, but they expect to be able participate in everything the Church offers, like communion and donut Sunday, without any repercussions whatsoever.

Big Guy thinks like this too. He wants to impose as much of our agenda as he can, like health care for all, citizenship for all, jobs for all, all for all, even though most of the country opposes this, but he doesn't want any of the blame if things don't work out. That's why we had George W. Bush.


  1. I'm really glad you expanded on the part about Catholics "...like it both ways."
    One kinky Big Guy in the white house was quite enough.

  2. I was shocked the first time I went to my fiance's Catholic church and saw an Obama bumper sticker.

    But, apparently, Catholics who don't, ya know, actually give a damn about anything their faith teaches aren't so uncommon.

    Right to life? Not supporting a candidate who advocates infanticide?

    Meh. Who cares?

    Standing up for Judeo-Christian values, even when you're supposed to be espousing them, is so last century or two.

    Just a further symptom of the disease: the collapse of Western civilization's confidence in itself, and in everything that made it great.

    Go to Europe and see all the beautiful, empty state funded Catholic churches.

    Then notice all the rabid, angry "youths" who torch cars, murder Theo Van Gogh, threaten Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Danish cartoonists, and just happen to attend a mosque. (No connection at all with the religion to the violence. Oh no.)

    And finally, watch all the capitulation to anything Muslims demand, all in the name of "tolerance" and "multiculturalism."

    A Western world that won't breed and stand up for its values, will, in but a few generations, cease to stand at all. You can't stand when you don't exist anymore.

    The agents of Islam, however, are excelling both at having babies and pushing their beliefs. Europeans are being outbred four to one. Those purely Islamic neighborhoods that police are afraid to go into didn't get there by accident.

    I love Mark Steyn, but he sure keeps me up at night.

    "America Alone." Brilliant book.

    Cheers, TOTUS. This post came out as much more of a long winded rant than I first intended. I know you like to keep things light-hearted around here.

  3. TOTUS,

    You were really laying it on at Georgetown today! Wow, thanks so much of your openess about the Big Guy's thoughts.

    John's Space

  4. Hey Totus....can you tell the White House Kitchen to hold off on the morning Coffee.... I think there will be PLENTY of TEA at the White House tomorrow!

    Signed, Just a Catholic who DOESN'T like it both ways.

  5. "all for all".... I'd laugh, but I'm too busy crying...

  6. TOTUS,
    would you mind "accidentally" flubbing Big Guy's speech at Notre Dame to... ya know... agree with the Church as opposed to the university. Just a few strategically placed "not's" should do the trick...

  7. So true! Hey, I can't wait to hear what you and the Big Guy will be up to tomorrow on Tax Day. Any speeches in store about the Tea Parties?

  8. You act like Catholics are the only hypocrites when it comes to religion. Do you turn the other cheek or eye for eye? Spiteful God or Loving God?

  9. Well, TOTUS, as an evangelical Christian I have to say (with sadness) that there are hypocrits in every church. Except for Jeremiah Wright's church, where they said one thing - "God d*** America" - and meant it. You could never accuse them of not practicing what they preached!

  10. Totus:
    Very impressive the way you brought these points across today - bravo for you. What a marvel you are, and humble as well, but I digress. You may become immortalized in flim.

    I tried to imagine how Will Smith might bring The One's very 'beaujolais' nuance to an flim starring Hisself - neatly religious, even as he rakes in the buckaroos on an biography featuring a kidnapping by aliens and temptation on a mount to become king of the world...oops. Did I digress again?

    Sorry, it's late. Good night, dear Totus.

  11. Totus:
    You are over-used. It is becoming too evident. Obama is unable to even praise the military and their efforts against the pirates without being fed lines by you. This comes across as stale and insincere. But then, that is the nature of change - democrats have never really been for military, business, or the little man anyway. The rich democrats talk the talk but drive the same giant vehicles, burn gigantic amounts of fuel in private jets, overlook the true needs by supplying welfare in every form and fashion imaginable. Meanwhile, global warming is espoused as truth, school education is down the tubes (which is good for democrats because it produces more dependent blue collars and non-entrepreneurial types), taxes go up and businesses fail, debt rises and general American Moral is squashed. And to pour salt on the wound, you have Obama "dis-ing" America on foreign soil. Sorry I don't drink your Kool-aid. I will stick with the republic (NOT Republican, as in party affiliation) mindset of George Washington. I will keep with Federalism and small government.
    I’d say I’d look you up at the Tea Party tomorrow…but, your band-o-brothers are trying to ignore the movement and even label these fellow Americans as “terrorists.” Wow, now that’s rich....

  12. Rick Perry for president - of Texas!


  13. Yeah, it's too bad that for so many Catholics (and hypocrites in all religions/denominations) their faith is "Words. Just Words." [B. Hussein O. fits right in.]

    Perhaps, Catholicism and other religions that have required rituals (e.g., baptism is not merely a voluntary testimonial act, but necessary for salvation) are a bit more vulnerable to promoting insincere followers. "If I just jump through the all the hoops, I'll go to Heaven. Who cares about the rest of it?"

    Yes, there are hypocrites in every faith [except amongst the "God __ America" bunch -- good point, Spring Chicken -- only a "true believer" could stomach such filth]. The reason you find so many more in Catholicism is that they keep on attending church while in the other denominations the potential hypocrites mostly just stay home and watch football or go to the mall.

    Whether they are Catholic hypocrites or Protestant and Jewish apostates, they all need to do some serious soul searching and ask: "What does it say in God's Word about this?"

    Hey, Hawkins 1701, and you, too, Capt. America, preach it! Amen!


  14. Good job on the speech yesterday. You made the Big Guy look good. Way to go TOTUS

  15. after yesterday's speech, barack will recieve this letter:


    it's going in the mail today.

  16. Some people have argued that Obama does not want to use religion to further a political ideology. However, Obama did
    evoke the Sermon on the Mount, at this Georgetown appearance, to further his economic agenda. Although Obama failed to mention Jesus Christ by name for the Sermon on the Mount.

    “There is a parable at the end of the Sermon on the Mount that tells a story of two men…‘the rain descended and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house…it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock,’” Obama said.

    “We cannot rebuild this economy on the same pile of sand,” he added. “We must build our house upon a rock.”

    The last statement is particularly ironic since building your house upon a ‘ROCK‘ means to build your house with Christ as the foundation. Obama decided to blot out the real foundation from the timeless parable.

    See the hi-res pictures:

  17. Hear, hear, Rockweb Media. Jesus is the Rock of our salvation. Boy, that B. Hussein sure is creepy.

    I heard Sean Hannity this evening say that B.O. demanded that at Georgetown a statue (picture?) of the Messiah be covered up. Didn't want the competition, obviously.
