OBAMA TO RABBIS: 'WE ARE GOD'S PARTNERS IN MATTERS OF LIFE AND DEATH

Politico - President Obama's call with the rabbis today - as recorded in Rabbi Jack Moline's and other clerics' Twitter feeds - freights health care reform with a great deal of religious meaning, and veers into the blend of policy and faith that outraged liberals in the last administration. "We are God's partners in matters of life and death," Obama said, according to Moline, quoting from the Rosh Hashanah prayer that says that in the holiday period, it is decided "who shall live and who shall die."

So, now Obama is a partner with G-d in who lives and dies?! This is disgusting! To quote from the Holy day prayer book to try to,and sadly to some misguided of those "rabbis", say that we determine life and death. Does this mean that a murderer should be let go, and not face a jury? After all, he decides who lives and dies. Albeit that he is stealing the other persons life and insulting G-d in the process, he is none-the-less deciding who lives and who dies. Obama wants the Rabbis whoever they may be to sign onto his Government plan, and lay death on their shoulders. If they help, I will be embarrassed to call myself a Jew. We are suppose to go out of our way to SAVE a life, not end it.

Woe! Who denies Christ denies God.Woe to you , Blind guides, who consider good as evil and evil as the good.
Woe to people who rely on their own understanding instead of relying on God'understanding trough his holy spirit(word) through Christ.
Bless Israel and protect them from Wolves dressed up in Lambs !!! with their sweet "words" coming from bleached sepultures...
