You Won’t Believe How Badly Obama Botches His Attempt at Quoting Scripture!


Speaking at an immigration town hall event on Tuesday, Obama once again tried to use Scripture to further his case. It ended badly. In a typically long-winded response to a question about civility, Obama concluded with this head-scratcher:

“And I think — the good book says, don’t throw stones in glass houses, or make sure we’re looking at the log in our eye before we’re pulling out the mote in other folks’ eyes. And I think that’s as true in politics as it is in life.”

“Don’t throw stones in glass houses”??? This seems to be a bad mix of the proverb, “People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones,” (which is NOT found in the Bible) and possibly John 8:7, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her” (New International Version (NIV)). How do you screw up that badly?

Then again, what do you expect from a man who has been known to mock passages of the Bible to make his point?

To be fair, he does come much closer to correctly quoting Matthew 7:3 which, in the New International Version (NIV), says, “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?”

The president would do well to study all those sayings and verses more closely and take them to heart in his own role as leader of our country.

  • The first thing I would sy is that anyone that tells as many lies as he does should never quote scripture on anything;

  • Love how Obama tries to use the Bible (however inaccurately) when it suits him, but the rest of the time he's trying to erase every trace of Christianity from our nation and world.

  • Just what 'good' book' was he quoting from? Maybe the Quran,,,certainly not the Bible. But, then again judging from his knowledge of things,,and also not reading a teleprompter,,what do you expect??

  • I am sure that without his paid handlers and Teleprompters this man is a totally moronic klutz.
    Unfortunately he has empowered himself with the aid of 'Traitor' Boehner to totally destroy what is left of the U.S.A. within the next two years unless he is promptly removed from office as an incompetent.

  • The Matthew 7:3 quote, taken in context, is really about judging somebody based on appearances. A lot of people get this wrong and I don't think anybody could get this more wrong than obama.

  • The Bible is a front for all of the Illuminati puppets, democrats or republicans. Lucifer is their leader and it is him that they worship to their own demise. The sad part is the citizens who continue to support them, no matter what they say and do, and thereby are turning their backs on the creator all the while going to church and believe that they are serving God.

  • This should not surprise anyone. After all he has
    said he relies on his muslim faith. Would have to read The Holy Bible to know what it says and quote it. Bet he can correctly quote the koran/quaran though.

  • So now our Democratic Presidents have to be Bible scholars? Since when? Have you all been listening when the Repubs constantly misquote the Bible? No right? Like Bachman said, "He who shall not work, shall not eat" when referring to those on disability, she didn't realize that those people "cannot work" there is a difference, it's not like they have a choice. She was trying to demean people on disability, and she pulled a fast one on everyone, I bet you never even noticed that. I don't care if my President knows the Bible inside and out, as a matter of fact I'm glad he doesn't, I don't want no religious freak as my President, I want a guy who knows what's right for the country, and President Obama knows what's right, that's why the Repubs have to block everything he tries to do, they know it will make this country stronger and they can't have that. You all look like a bunch of fools grasping at straws, LOL

  • That's it!!! The holy grail!! You got him. LOL It's been so amusing watching you make fools of yourself trying so desperately to find any little thing to criticize this President for. I have to say, I'm looking forward to the next 2 years, I'm grabbing my popcorn. You know how stupid you all sound? If we're going to criticize for a President not getting something exactly right, even though he got the message across, then let's compare him to Bush, shall we? Now he was the all time champion of saying stupid stuff, by far. Keep it up people, I love when you lower yourselves ever more and more as this Presidency goes on. LMAO
