Obama says, “I am my brother’s keeper.” His brother begs to differ. Literally. He begs.

Praise the Lord. The President slipped into his religious disguise yesterday and appealed to faith-based groups to save ObamaCare.

Twenty years in the front pew at Jeremiah Wright’s church paid off when Obama dredged up a vaguely appropriate biblical reference and said, “There are some folks out there who are, frankly, bearing false witness.”

But Land O’ Goshen, child, this was our favorite line:

“These are all fabrications that have been put out there in order to discourage people from meeting what I consider to be a core ethical and moral obligation: that is, that we look out for one another; that is, I am my brother’s keeper, I am my sister’s keeper. And in the wealthiest nation in the world right now we are neglecting to live up to that call.”

Please bear in mind, however, that the same man who wants you to be your brother’s keeper allows his brother to exist on $20 a year in a filthy little shack in Nairobi, Kenya’s worst slum.

Fact is, the only place the Hypocrite-In-Chief wants to keep his brother is out of sight.

Seems like most of you missed the point. The bible verse suggests that we are all responsible for the welfare of our siblings. We can all do more to help out our family and fellow citizens. Ducking the responsibility (like Cain did) makes you an unworthy citizen of the world. You are casting stones and I doubt you are without sin.

Please… Don’t insert what is not there.

“8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.

9And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper?

10And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground. ”

Genesis 4 (KJV)

G-d doesn’t even answers the silly little question because that is not the point. It was a rhetoric question and it was made from an evil stand point. The verse DOES NOT SUGGEST what you think it does. Cain murdered his righteous brother. Perhaps in an attempt to elicit repentance or confession from Cain’s part (not to appear altogether “judgemental” or whatever reason) G-d asked where is Abel. Had Cain been repentant he would have immeditely confessed and asked G-d for forgiveness. He didn’t and therefore G-d’s judgement and punishment upon Cain is right and acceptable (even if Cain didn’t think so) and EVEN THEN G-d placed protection upon Cain so he wouldn’t be killed in turn by someone else. The first murderer didnt want to be murdered… go figure.

Cain said that he didn know where his brother was. He was a murderer, a liar and an idiot to boot to assume that his act may have not been noticed by G-d or else believe that he can release himself from any responsibility on what happened. He doesn’t ask that question in seriousness. He is being evilly facetious. He is being childish, he is being malignant. G-d didn’t even make the case about filial responsibility, He just made the case that righteous blood has touched the Earth and it requests justice, but He even allowed for Cain to come to repentance and he didn’t. That statement has been corrupted which is a shame. It didn’t come from a good place at all. So I think it is you that missed the point.

It is true that we can all do more to help one another and be charitable and so on, hwoever that is not stemmed from that verse nor chapter. This is about justice upon the murder of a righteous human being AND the opportunity G-d gives for people to come into repentance and even though just, still allowed for protection over the murderer until it was time for him to pay for what he did in the end.

Cain’s responsibility was not to kill his brother… it wasn’t to take care of his brother. His brother could take care of himself just fine. He was a shepard and he was able to do what he wanted to do with his life, if he was allowed to have his life, he wouldn’t need Cain for any sort of sustenance. So again I dont know where you get that from. What Cain failed to do after the murder was to repent from the murder, it wasnt about taking care of his brother it was about respect human life.

“You are casting stones and I doubt you are without sin.” Uhm… right back at you.

Well if we are all looking out for our own families and BHO has aunts, brothers and family are suffering w/o help. My only suggestion is that his family has no political clout to benefit him and his agenda and are therefore an embarrassment to him

Obama is his brother’s keeper — does that mean that half of Kenya will be moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?

The fact is, when you believe that people should rely on the government to meet their needs, you remove all personal responsibility and moral obligation.
