Mmm mmm mmm
By now we've all heard the creepy song the New Jersey schoolchildren have been programmed to sing about our president. I paid closer attention to the words today, and found something even creepier in them:
"Red and yellow, black and white,
All are equal in his sight"
That, as most baby boomers know, is a song about Jesus, who
". . . loves the little children,
All the children of the world,
Red and yellow, black and white
they are precious in his sight"
A generation ago I would not have had to point this out, since virtually everyone knew the source of those words. But today? Certainly those children can hardly be expected to know.
So we have yet another blatant attempt to make Obama into Jesus in the minds of little children. The bare words of that chant now have the children thinking that all these different people are considered in Obama's sight.
And to boot this new savior does not count everyone as "precious" as the original lyrics would have it, but "equal," as in the equalizing mind of Karl Marx, "From each according to their ability to each according to their need."
I'm telling you, this is getting on beyond politics. This is not-so-subtle attack on the Christian faith. There is a new savior, and there is a new religion.
Or am I overreacting? Mmm, mmm, mmm . . .
