In his evocation of healing powers and dominion over the waters, Obama summons up echoes of the Gospels and Genesis. His comment a week earlier at Wesleyan, that “our individual salvation depends on collective salvation,” I might add, would seem at odds with much of Christian teaching.
I don’t know how to say this, but … Extra ecclesiam nulla salus? (That isn’t just a Catholic doctrine; all the Reformers held it. That’s why ecclesiology was such a hot topic; if the Church was essential to salvation, then it mattered a lot what the Church was and how it was to be run.)
If you’re going to spend all your time sucking up to rich goyim, maybe you ought to learn something about their religion. Or maybe if you knew something about your own religion, you’d be less surprised at the notion that an offshoot of Judaism holds that righteousness, no less than justice, is a communal and not merely an individual activity.
Leo Strauss would not be proud of you.
