Barack Obama, Biblical Scholar

Speaking on the subject of immigration, Barack Obama once again turned to his translation of the Bible for inspiration. He last abused God’s Word by paraphrasing Exodus in his speech announcing his amnesty executive action. This time, he quoted a verse that doesn’t exist: “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 are pointing out the moat in other folks’ eyes.” Unfortunately, the Bible never says anything about glass houses, and he’s also a bit muddled with logs and moats. Undeterred, Obama continued the Sunday school lesson, saying, “If we’re serious about the Christmas season, now is the time to reflect on those who are strangers in our midst and remember what it was like to be a stranger.” If he’s referring to Mary and Joseph as strangers in Bethlehem, well, that was Joseph’s ancestral home – which might not be the best analogy to today’s illegal immigration.
