Matt Barber: ‘President Obama has called Jesus a Liar’

It has come as no surprise that the Religious Right has been up in arms over President Obama’s recent announcement in support of marriage equality, but what seems to have really upset them was his citation of the Bible’s “do unto others” teaching in explaining his views.

Today, on Liberty Counsel’s “Faith and Freedom” radio program, Matt Barber blasted Obama for daring to cite the Golden Rule in support of gay marriage, saying that in doing so “President Obama has called Jesus a liar” and engaged in heresy:

  9. Who is this retard? Maybe I live in a cave but I have no idea who this loser is. Religion has been responsible for so many wars and deaths that I don’t even believe in organized religion anymore. Too many damn freaks who interpret the Bible as they want and hurt others.

  12. Wow These people amaze me. 1) That they actually have enough time to waste obssessing about gay people and 2) That they Really and truly consider themselves “Christians”.

  13. It seems to me that this Matt Barber has it wrong. Obama isn’t in the wrong because he now “supports” gay marriage; Obama is in the wrong because he actually believes America thinks he is sincere with this “evolution” of ideals. What has he really accomplished for the LGBT community since his bid for presidency in 2008, when he was so adamant about marriage being between a man and a woman?

  14. No buddy it looks like you are the liar and also u accused Obama of Heresy who was the one who just did it…uh you with your using the bible to fit YOUR viewpoint when the passage selected was clearly talking about something totally different..DIVORCE which is the result of 50% of heterosexual marriage!

  15. @Theresa Please don’t insult the mentally disabled by comparing them to this Neanderthal.

  16. op op op. Jesus came about in the New Testament, homosexuality is ‘discussed’ mainly in the old testament. And as a Christian, whatever happens in the N.T SHOULD precede anything in the O.T. So technically speaking, Obama did not call Jesus a liar, because he never said one word of the topic, other than spreading the message of building the Kingdom of God by loving in serving others. Which, I’m sure is like, the only basis of ‘getting into heaven’. Not who was a homosexual or who wasn’t -_- there ya have it, sincerely, least that’s what they teach me in school. djghsdg

  17. Heterosexual men and wemon can have children at any time of the day with out any thought. If you are a heterosexual man or woman you can get marride as many times as you want.

  18. Oh wait! Jesus never said a damn thing about homosexuality OR gay marriage! This is what we call an Opinion Fail, Mr. Barber.

  21. @hayley Pres. Obama and his administration have made over 70 policy changes/bills/laws in favor of the GLBT community. Maybe next time you should at least google it before you speak of something of which you know nothing about. Here’s a link for you:

    That makes him the most gay friendly president of all time!

  32. *eye roll*

  33. Jesus as we read in the Bible never spoke about LGBT issues. He said we should live up to the 10 Commendments and the most important one is to ‘love ur neighbour as urself’. Another one is: ‘Do not tell lies’.
