    Obama and the pope defend 'religious liberty' – but where and for whom?

    Guardian (UK)

    Pope Francis made an impassioned defence of religious freedom at the White House on Wednesday in remarks that were swiftly interpreted as a warning shot over demands for exemptions from the law on the grounds of faith.

    The issue of “religious liberty” has become a flashpoint between the Obama administration and faith campaigners, focused on rejections of same-sex marriage and contraception provision.

    The pontiff said that American Catholics were committed to “safeguarding the rights of individuals and communities, and to rejecting every form of unjust discrimination”.

    Efforts to build a just society should “respect their deepest concerns and their right to religious liberty. That freedom remains one of America’s most precious possessions,” he added. “All are called … to preserve and defend that freedom from everything that would threaten or compromise it.”

    Moments before the pope spoke, President Obama also highlighted the issue of religious freedom, saying: “Here in the United States, we cherish religious liberty. Yet around the world at this very moment, children of God, including Christians, are targeted and even killed because of their faith.”

    The US, Obama said, “stand[s] with you in defense of religious freedom and interfaith dialogue, knowing that people everywhere must be able to live out their faith free from fear and intimidation”.

    What will Obama's legacy be regarding 'religious liberty'?

    Don't be deceived. True liberty with love is what we all need. Only Christ can give us true liberty.

    What do you mean 'new'? It's already 1600 odd years old. And at 1 billion plus RC, it's just a bit bigger than facebook.

    I know that certain posters wil tear this website apart.
    But focus on what was said by the pope, please, and how.

    -The other thing to notice is that Pope Francis says some amazing things, but he rarely says them in an amazing way. He speaks with a low, weak voice, mostly in Italian, and can be hard to follow even through the interpreter. So many did not latch onto to the explosive thing he said in his opening remarks of his speech at the United Nations. From a prophecy perspective, which is the only angle we really are concerned with, his words are literally off the charts.

    While surfing around on the official UN site of the Holy See, you will find an article called Address Of His Holiness Pope Francis To The General Assembly Of The United Nations. This is the official Vatican transcript, prepared and approved by the Vatican, of the remarks Francis made in his UN speech over the weekend. When you read the first few lines you may think you are dreaming, and that there is no way he actually said what he said. But, there it is, officially transcribed and approved at the highest level of Vatican authority.

    Jesus in the fifth chapter of John, is talking about the difference between the true representative of God on Earth, Himself, and the Satanically-produced counterfeit of the Antichrist and the False Prophet. In verse 43, Jesus utters these astounding, prophecy-packed words:

    “I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.” John 5:43 (KJV)

    He is ultimately referring to a time, far in the future, when someone would come claiming to represent God, but actually coming in his own name, with his own unGodly agenda. Now, listen to what Pope Francis said as he said these words on Rosh Hashanah, in front of a gathering together of nations of the world:

    “Thank you for your kind words. Once again, following a tradition by which I feel honored, the Secretary General of the United Nations has invited the Pope to address this distinguished assembly of nations. In my own name, and that of the entire Catholic community, I wish to express to you, Mr Ban Ki-moon, my heartfelt gratitude. I greet the Heads of State and Heads of Government present, as well as the ambassadors, diplomats and political and technical officials accompanying them, the personnel of the United Nations engaged in this 70th Session of the General Assembly, the personnel of the various programs and agencies of the United Nations family, and all those who, in one way or another, take part in this meeting. Through you, I also greet the citizens of all the nations represented in this hall. I thank you, each and all, for your efforts in the service of mankind.”

    Pope Francis said that “I come in my own name” and that of the “entire Catholic community”. Not as a representative of Jesus Christ, not as an ambassador of the Gospel, but Francis stated that he came in his own name, his own power, and that of his Roman church. Rome the place and people that killed Jesus on the cross. The same cross that Francis said “ended in failure.” The Name of Jesus Christ, of whom Francis claims to be the “vicar” of, was never mentioned one time in any way, shape or form. What on Earth could possibly possess him to say that he “comes in his own name”? Then you read the end of the transcript, and it all clicked in.

    Francis ended his speech with these words:

    “Upon all of you, and the peoples you represent, I invoke the blessing of the Most High, and all peace and prosperity.”

    Which “most high” was the Pope referring to? When you read your Bible, you see another “most high” lurking in the pages of Scripture:

    “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.” Isaiah 14:14 (KJV)

    Is he true, or is he leading the world up the garden path?
