You’ll often find Barack Obama using the Bible when convenient to provide a “Christian” reason for some of his policy decisions, along with using it to support his spending priorities. Of course, being a true globalist, he will also quote the writings of Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, humanists and many others when it’s politically expedient, but I digress.
Apparently, he has found biblical evidence that sexual abstinence doesn’t work, and as a result, he will cease federal funding of teaching it in America’s public schools. Yep, it’s right there in scripture (Luke 1: 26-38) that a woman can indeed get pregnant without having sexual relations with a man:
In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”
Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.”
“How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”
The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. For nothing is impossible with God.”
“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May it be to me as you have said.” Then the angel left her.
There you have it – proof positive that abstinence-only living is no guarantee against becoming pregnant. Obama’s actions regarding this funding now make perfect sense.
After receiving this revelation, Obama went on to say that he would replace abstinence-only funding with a new teen pregnancy prevention initiative that supports “evidence-based” and “promising” models. This of course is code for condoms and abortion counselling. As we all know, the “evidence” proves that condoms NEVER fail, and for those poor souls who have been taught that sexual activity is unavoidable, but didn’t practice “evidence-based” pregnancy prevention, there’s nothing a quick trip down to the abortion clinic won’t solve. Just ask our new Health and Human Resources Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, or her old friend Dr. George Tiller, affectionately known as “Tiller the baby killer,” due to the multiple third trimester abortions he performs on a regular basis.
As we have known ever since he told us, Obama knows all things and can do all things. If his interpretation of the Holy Scriptures gives him the evidence he needs to ignore the reality that no sex = no babies, then who are we to question him?
