Hypocrite – Thy Name is Barack Obama – Says One Thing. Does Another on Religious Based SCHOOLS – BTW, DC Public Schools Are The Pits

Obama Compares Catholic School With Racial Segregation

While in Ireland, President Obama said this:

“Because issues like segregated schools and housing, lack of jobs and opportunity—symbols of history that are a source of pride for some and pain for others–these are not tangential to peace; they’re essential to it. If towns remain divided—if Catholics have their schools and buildings, and Protestants have theirs—if we can’t see ourselves in one another, if fear or resentment are allowed to harden, that encourages division. It discourages cooperation.”

Barack Obama is quite adept at saying one thing, while meaning another. Taken at face value, the essence of what the President said is accurate: fear and resentment may harden us to others; and it discourages cooperation. So, if one were to take out of context what the President said, it might make for a delightful sound bite; making Obama seem as wise and urbane as the media makes him out to be.

About the Religious Society of Friends
The Religious Society of Friends was originated by George Fox (1624-1691) during a period of political upheaval and social change in England. The established churches, Catholic and Anglican, were at a low ebb at this time, caught up in conflicts and preoccupied with forms and power struggles rather than religious witness. Neither provided much help to the victims of upheaval in a violent century, and so there were thousands of “seekers” who were looking for something that they could believe in and that would give meaning to their lives.

One such seeker, George Fox, after years of spiritual questioning, had a revelation on Pendle Hill in east Lancashire. This revelation led to the birth of the Religious Society of Friends and has been at the heart of its life and witness ever since. From this revelation, George Fox derived his essential insight, which was that there is “that of God” in everyone, and that one can gain access to the God within through stillness and the practice of silence.

The belief that there is that of God in every person led as well to the Quaker practices of careful listening, compassion, non-violence, full equality of women, and social action in pursuit of social justice. Fox also believed that decisions in the religious community should be made by the “sense of the meeting,” a spiritual step that seeks truth and is distinctive from consensus and voting, which seeks compromise or majority rule.

Quakers came to America very early in their history — the first Quakers came on preaching missions in 1656 to Maryland. Also, as a result of the persecution of Quakers in England, many friends emigrated to the American colonies. William Penn arrived in America in 1681 and founded Pennsylvania as the Holy Experiment, a colony governed on the ideals of the Religious Society of Friends.

Quakers first established schools in England to provide their children with a “guarded” education, one that protected the children from the influences of the larger society. When Friends arrived in America, they immediately founded schools to educate both boys and girls. Friends schools were founded in Philadelphia in the late 1600s. Believing that spiritual, social, and intellectual growth are closely linked, Friends have always stressed the importance of an education that supports the overall development of the child.

  1. Since President Obama feels so strongly about the evils of religious education that he actually interjected his opinion on the matter–in a foreign country, for pity sake–he must now demonstrate his willingness to walk the walk–not merely talk the talk. He must show the world he his a man of honor and remove his daughters from the religious Quaker school and place them in a DC public school.

    Mr. Obama’s failure to do so will show the world what an elitist hypocrite he is.

  2. It’s easy to find hypocrisy in President Obama because he is, in fact, a hypocrite. More, for a President who is supposed to be such a great speaker, he doesn’t choose his words very carefully: he winds up setting himself up for this kind of grief because he too-often engages his mouth before his brain.

    More, I find it laughable that a politician who has made his electoral success by segregating out demographic groups is complaining about segregation.

  3. I read a comment on an email about this subject and one of the responders suggested that BO is a wimp and suffers from dhimmitude. Dhimmitude is a non-muslim bowing to muslims and doing what he’s told. Given his actions lately, and bowing to the Saudi King makes sense now.

  4. Those who have developed an irrational contempt and hatred for someone, like toward our President, these people can hardly be counted upon to draw reasonable conclusions about the behavior of their chosen enemy. It’s either black or white, either all bad or all good.

    … if we can’t see ourselves in one another, if fear or resentment are allowed to harden, that encourages division. It discourages cooperation.”

    My take from Obama’s words as quoted above, given in the context of a less troubled/divisive Ireland, is that we are a diverse conglomeration of people, a mixture of people of different religions, ethnic origins, racial backgrounds. But we can take our differences to extremes, thus encouraging divisions. The history of mankind is replete with these divisions, thus the root causes of the wars which have occurred throughout the ages up to this very moment.

    Regarding hypocrisy, of course Obama is a hypocrite, as are we all, if we are to be blatantly honest with ourselves. The remedy is to constantly strive to walk the walk as we talk the talk, the effect being to reduce our divisions and encourage cooperation.

    Let us be reasonable with one another, folks.

    Yeah, I remember VIVIDLY the Left acted in such good faith and fairness when GWB was President - NOT

    Note to the LEFT (all factions) You Reap What You Sow. You have sown a hatred of all things GWB, and now you complain when anyone dares to criticize “your tin god”.

  6. So, Perry, what about a rational contempt for frauds, like you? How about the reasonable conclusion that your behavior on this site has been repeatedly so unacceptable that the Editor was compelled to ban you. Yet, here you are, masquerading as someone else, using another screen name and IP address, but parroting the same stale old claptrap.

    Our Editor and most of the regular commenters here countenance your deception, I don’t, but it’s not my site or my call. However, I won’t pretend you aren’t the very hypocrite you have the unmitigated chutzpah to claim we all are and then arrogantly compound your self-serving slander by describing it as blatantly honest.

    Perry, I’ve never met you in person, but you’re the most dishonest, smug, two-faced, and reprehensible individual I’ve ever encountered, and I’ve met some doozies.

    Maybe he didn’t have his precious TelePrompTer with him …

  8. Maybe he didn’t have his precious TelePrompTer with him….

    He did, but poor widdle BO had the sun, which he couldn’t command to move, or turn itself off, blot out the usefulness of TOTUS, so he had to read from the speech in written form. And since poor widdle BO can’t read a paper and speak at the same time, his speech was a FLOP, or maybe PLOP. And Super Apologist Chris, Thill Up My Leg, Matthews made excuses for the speech reader. If poor widdle BO was such a great orator, he could have recited it from memory, but he can’t. So, he’s not a soaring orator, he’s just a speech reader, a normal or subnormal person, not a tin god as his suck ups want you to believe.

  9. Ropelight stated: “Our Editor and most of the regular commenters here countenance your deception”

    It is not that I don’t believe Rebus is Perry per se, but I have no proof. Besides ropelight, I talk with a lot of leftists and I can’t tell one from the other because they all have the same exact talking points all the time. They all talk about voter suppression while the government suppresses the opposition. They talk of killing innocent civilians while moslem terrorists kill our innocent civilians. They talk of reducing energy costs while thwarting energy development. They opine over AGW and never consider that it is we as a nation who develops and uses energy the most efficiently.

    They are all broken records repeating the same tired crap over and over. They never met a tax they didn’t like. They cry about the 1% but never hold their leftists who are in the 1% to the fire. You can be a 1%er if you’re a celebrity, politician, sports legend or “approved” businessman but woe to you if your 1% comes from investing or banking or you own Chic-fil-a, then you’re evil. Just like you’re a radical partisan if you’re conservative but if you’re liberal you are a noble altruist.

    They have the emotional stability of a two year old and like two year olds they all cry the same.

  10. Hoagie, I’ve identified Rebus as Perry here several times, once I even offered to put a few bucks on it, no takers. I’ve also ID’ed Perry as Gramps2 on Patterico’s site.

    Back on 6/12/13 @ 9:36 am on the Editor’s post The Internal Revenue Service Seizes Medical Records JD from Patterico’s site asked, Is Rebus actually Perry?

    The Editor didn’t answer the question as far as I know, as least not in the comments, but York did and he wrote that Rebus wasn’t Perry – different IP addresses. JD then offered to confirm IP addresses by comparing Rebus with Gramps2 and noted Same style, Same nonsense. Same silly questions. Same playing or being stupid. Same person.

    I was waiting for some resolution but when the topic went stale, I asked the Editor if he got back to JD, but again, no response. If the Editor allows Perry back (as himself, or Wagon Wheel, or Rebus, or Gramps2, or in some other disguise) that’s entirely his call. When Perry was banned traffic here did fall off precipitously and there’s no doubt Perry does generate lively debate, not all of it valuable but usually there’s some good along with the bad, but not always, and anyway policy is above my pay grade.

    I wasn’t active here when Perry was banned “permanently,” but I was around for his initial suspension and even welcomed him back, if I recall correctly. Additionally, I’m not calling for Rebus to be banned now, only that I object to the deception, and if our Editor isn’t too busy defending amnesty for illegal aliens he might consider the virtues of honesty and forthrightness as guides to policy here.

    So, Hoagie, you know I’m a fan, and I’ll willingly repeat that I’m not double-dog 100% sure Perry is Rebus, he hasn’t confessed, but it’s Perry alright, and I’m sure enough to put good whiskey on it. You already owe me a shot of Knob Creek, how about double on nothing?

    Could be worse, the NZ Troll could return.

  12. Ropelight, the similarities between Rebus and Perry are blatant so I won’t double down our bet. ( and Gramps2 at Patterico )

    Maybe I was out of practice, but the first few posts were very un-Perry like, then the documentation comment. :-)

  14. It’s like I said Yorkshire, all the leftists sound the same like they’re programed or something. But there is a style similarity between Rebus, Perry, and Gramps2. So, no bet.
