Obama & Blair: False Messiahs?

Tom McFeely

[COMMENT:  Obama is an almost unmitigated tragedy for America and the world.  But Christians are waking up.  It may take several decades, but, under God, we (or those after us...) will turn this mess around. 

Sadly, commentators talk of him as though he were president, when he has not legitimately met the requirements for being so, showing himself to be a natural-born citizen.  We are not sure that he is even a citizen at all.   He is an usurper and pretender to the throne.    E. Fox]

> Obama & Blair: False Messiahs?
> BY Tom McFeely
> Tuesday, May 12, 2009
> Msgr. Michel Schooyans, an international human-rights expert, says
> President Barack Obama has a flawed, totalitarian vision of human
> existence.
> In his May 1 address at the Vatican to the plenary assembly of the
> Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, posted here at the Chiesa.com
> website, Msgr. Schooyans warned that Obama is motivated by a “messianic”
> desire to reorder the world in keeping with the president’s political
> pro-abortion philosophy.
> One of the significant aspects of the talk given by Msgr. Schooyans, who
> is professor emeritus of the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium as
> well as a member of three different pontifical academies, is that it
> indicates many in the Vatican don’t share the pro-Obama perspectives
> expressed in a recent commentary published by the Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore
> Romano.
> Msgr. Schooyans said Obama supports the creation of new international
> “rights” to facilitate access to abortion. And as a corollary, Obama also
> rejects the right to life of the unborn and the conscience rights of
> pro-life medical personnel to refuse to participate in anti-life
> procedures.
> Stated Msgr. Schooyans,
> The new president is thus dragging the law into a process of regression
> that is altering the democratic nature of the society that elected him. In
> fact, a society that calls itself democratic but whose leaders, invoking
> subjective “new rights,” permit the elimination of some categories of
> human beings, is a society that has already set out on the road of
> totalitarianism. According to the World Health Organization, 46 million
> abortions are performed worldwide each year. By revoking the legal
> provisions protecting life, Obama is expanding the gruesome list of the
> victims of criminal laws. The way has been opened for abortion to become a
> legal demand. The law itself can be thrown into disrepute whenever it is
> exploited and twisted to legalize anything whatsoever, and is put, for
> example, at the service of a plan to eliminate the innocent. From this
> point on, the reality of the human being no longer has any importance.
> The evident result of the change determined by Obama is that the number of
> abortions in the world will increase. President Bush had cut funding for
> programs that involve abortion, particularly outside of the United States.
> The reversal of this measure by the new administration limits the right of
> medical personnel to conscientious objection, and allows Obama to increase
> funding for public and private organizations, both national and
> international, that develop programs of birth control, of “maternity
> without risk,” of “reproductive health” that include and promote abortion
> among their methods of contraception…
> Now, since the influence of the United States is what matters most in
> international relations, bilateral and multilateral, and especially at the
> UN, it can be predicted that sooner or later abortion will be presented at
> the UN as a “new human right,” a right that permits demanding abortion.
> The result will be that there will no longer be any room in the law for
> conscientious objection. This same process will allow the president to
> express his desire to put other subjective “new rights” on the list, like
> euthanasia, homosexuality, unilateral divorce, drug use, etc.
> Msgr. Schooyans added that Obama’s messianic revision of human rights is
> shared by recent Catholic convert Tony Blair and his wife Cherie. In fact,
> according to Msgr. Schooyans, the Blairs are seeking to refashion all
> religions, including Catholicism, in conformance with this revision:
> President Obama can count on support for these programs from Tony Blair
> and his wife Cherie Booth. One of the aims of the Tony Blair Faith
> Foundation, the think tank founded by the former British prime minister,
> will be that of remaking the major religions, just as his colleague Barack
> Obama will remake global society. With this purpose, the foundation in
> question will try to expand the “new rights,” using the world religions
> for this end and adapting these for their new duties. The religions will
> have to be reduced to the same common denominator, which means stripping
> them of their identity. This cannot be done without establishing
> international law as inspired by Hans Kelsen (1881-1973), and charged with
> approving all of the laws of sovereign nations. This system of law will
> also have to be imposed on the world religions in such a way that the new
> “faith” may be the unifying principle of global society. This new “faith,”
> this unifying principle, must allow the advancement of the Millennium
> Development Goals. These goals include “Promote gender equality and
> empower women” (number 3) and “Improve maternal health” (number 5). We
> know very well what these expressions cover and imply. The launching of
> the Foundation’s program has been announced with a campaign against
> malaria. This is part of goal number 6: “Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and
> other diseases.” The announcement was made in such a way that subscribing
> to this campaign will mean subscribing to the Millennium Development Goals
> as a whole.
> In fact, Tony Blair’s project extends and amplifies the United Religions
> Initiative, which appeared several years ago. It also extends the Global
> Ethic Declaration, one of the main proponents of which is Hans Küng. This
> plan cannot be realized except at the price of the sacrifice of religious
> freedom, of the imposition of a “politically correct” interpretation of
> the Sacred Scriptures, and of the sabotage of the natural foundations of
> law. Machiavelli had recommended that religion be used for political
> purposes…
> The former British prime minister’s highly propagandized “conversion” to
> Christianity, as well as his interview with the gay magazine “Attitude” in
> April of 2009, make Tony Blair’s intentions concerning religion even more
> clear, beginning with the Catholic religion. The Holy Father’s statements,
> especially about condoms, belong to another generation. The fresh
>  “convert” does not hesitate to explain to the Pope not only what he must
> do, but also what he must believe! Is he Catholic? Blair does not believe
> in the authority of the Pope.
