This is the perfect example of why Samuel Adams said, “The public cannot be too curious concerning the character of public men.”

I wouldn’t recommend purchasing his books, but checking them out from the public library and verifying the quotes. This is a dangerous individual that has not been truthful evidently, with very much he has uttered in public. Particularly the last quote! Shame on the media for their silence.

This guy wants to be our President and control our government. Pay close attention to the last comment!! Below are a few lines from Obama’s books … his words:

From Dreams of My Father: “I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.”

From Dreams of My Father: “I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race.”

From Dreams of My Father: “It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.”

From Dreams of My Father: “I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my own. It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa, that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself, the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, Dubois and Mandela.”

From Audacity of Hope: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

Let’s remember, Adolph Hitler was a charismatic speaker.

“When a church goes too long without seeing conversions, it turns on itself. If a church does not taste the nourishment of seeing souls saved, it will cannibalize itself as people turn on each other, trying to recapture a sense of purpose. People get worked up about their musical preferences, or frustrated by the church’s organizational weaknesses, or irate about financial decisions and personnel problems. These issues often yield disagreement, division, and strife.

Seeing the transformation of a new convert’s life brings unity. When people are converted, the church pulls together. It is not that these other things are unimportant. They do matter; but they are not central. This was the point of Jesus’ parables of the lost sheep, lost coin and lost son. When church members see dissension among themselves, they should always ask, ‘When was the last time we saw the conversion of a lost soul?'”
