President Obama filled with plenty of 'Communist influences'

Editor, Ceres Courier,

Communism and those countries that embrace Socialism and Communism have tried many times in history to proclaim there is no God. They believed faith in God is a deceptive illusion and wanted to remove Christianity from their society.

Christianity is a religion of freedom and democracy while Communism has always viewed Christianity as weak and as a threat to the Communist movement of government control of the people. Karl Marx, the communist leader who introduced the Marxist philosophy, also opposed religion. According to Marx, religion prevents the fulfillment of his Communist ideas - that Communism is the only answer for all the world's problems. Marx believed religion created illusory fantasies for the poor. Therefore, removal of religion was necessary for people to become dependent on government rather than trust religion.

Communist introduced 45 goals in their Communist Manifesto to remove capitalism and God from America. On Jan. 10, 1963, Rep. Albert S Herlong read and listed the Communist goals - from a book titled "The Naked Communist" by Cleon Skousen - into the Congressional Record Some of the goals within the Communist Manifesto include using the American Civil Liberties Union, (ACLU) which was founded by admitted Communist Roger Baldwin who stated "We are for Socialism, disarmament, and ultimately for abolishing the state itself" and "Communism is the goal." They wanted to "eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state" Replacing belief in the creator with belief in the earthly man-controlled State." The phase "separation of church and state" is not even in the U.S. Constitution. The phase was first written by President Thomas Jefferson in a letter to the Baptist Association of Danbury in Connecticut. The founding fathers did not want a government run by religion as in the "Church of England", where people could not worship freely. Therefore a separation was intended to protect government from control by religion and to protect religion from control by government, not to build a confrontational wall to keep government and religion separated. However, the ACLU had their team of Communist lawyers repeat the big lie about "Separation of Church and State" and it was first used in 1947 to deny some specific religious expression - contrary to Jefferson's intent of the phrase. Today, many people believe this lie to be true. Their goal is to control religion and remove the founding principles of Christianity from our country. Their plan was to "infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch." This has been largely accomplished through the communist infiltration of the National Council of Churches.

This can explain the church attended by President Obama for 20 years, where his racist pastor and "mentor" spewed American hatred, blaming America for 9/11, and calling America the U.S."KKK"A. Obama goes on to state in June 2009 "Whatever we once were, we're no longer a Christian nation." Obama clearly does not know history. America's roots and establishment of government are based on Christianity.

It is understandable how President Obama could develop these feelings since from his youth, he has been filled with radical Communist influences. John Perzzo, in "The Communists Behind Obama's Health Care Goals" notes "Barack Obama did not conceive of socialized medicine on his own. His acceptance of such a system was cultivated and nurtured by the same types of Marxist revolutionaries with whom he has surrounded himself throughout his entire adult life - and who are now shaping the major policy agendas of his administration." Obama had an admitted close relationship of "social conferences" with Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), who mentored Obama at the beginning of his political career. The CPUSA have developed leaders within the Democrat Party to adopt their goals listed in the Communist Manifesto, which support policies to silent Christianity and destroy moral standards and influence through getting "control of the schools," "infiltrate the press," "gain control of key positions in radio, TV and motion pictures," "eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press," "breakdown cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and TV" and "present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural and healthy."

These policies are well established within the Democratic Party, which can explain the Democratic Party platform for supporting homosexual marriages and indoctrinating our children with teaching homosexuality. Kevin Jennings, who is the Safe School Czar has wrote the forward to a book called Queering Elementary Education, which promotes homosexual doctrine to be taught in elementary school, even to children in first grade. Jennings has already stated he will promote his "homosexual agenda" into our public school curriculum.

The Democratic Party passed hate-crimes legislation providing protection for gays and lesbians, bisexuals, and transsexuals by making them a protected class, which would make negative statements concerning homosexuality, such as calling it a sin from the pulpit, a "hate crime" punishable by law.

Many Democrats attempting to use the "Fairness Doctrine" as a means to silence Christian and conservative views by forcing conservative and Christian radio talk stations to give air time to opposing views. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in Washington, D.C., could ultimately use its power to pave the way to stop conservative speech or the reading of the gospel of our Lord and Savior on the airwaves of America.

There are also attempts to remove all references to God including the removal of "In God We Trust" from our currency and "one nation under God" in our Pledge of Allegiance. There is even movement to remove Christmas as a national holiday due to its ties to Christianity. This is not impossible since many of those appointed to our justice system have used the Communist Manifesto goal to "discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs" as they reference International law in their decisions.

Step by step, the goals and plans of the Communist Manifesto is being established to silence Christianity and the moral standards of America. While many may denounce the true plan of the Communist Manifesto, they did not hide their goals and plans. In fact, it is also outlined in the Soviet slogan "Let us drive out the capitalist from earth and God from Heaven".

During World War II, there was a Nazi concentration camp in Dachau, Germany with the misleading words welded to an iron gate "Arbeit Macht Frei" meaning "Work Makes You Free." This was just a false hope to those who entered this place of death. The new false hope of today is to transfer faith and hope from religion to the government. The communist's ulimate goal is to replace "In God We Trust" with "In Government We Trust." Those words would be both frightening and most deceptive.
