512-523 – • Newsbusters (6/5/09) Newsweek's Evan Thomas: Obama Is 'Sort of God'.  From the story, "Newsweek editor Evan Thomas brought adulation over President Obama's Cairo speech to a whole new level on Friday, declaring on MSNBC: "I mean in a way Obama's standing above the country, above – above the world, he's sort of God."
(:33) Evan Thomas on Hardball with Chris Matthews (6/5/09).  EVAN THOMAS:  Well, we were the good guys in 1984, it felt that way. It hasn't felt that way in recent years. So Obama's had, really, a different task. We're seen too often as the bad guys. And he – he has a very different job from – Reagan was all about America, and you talked about it. Obama is 'we are above that now.' We're not just parochial, we're not just chauvinistic, we're not just provincial. We stand for something – I mean in a way Obama's standing above the country, above – above the world, he's sort of God. He's… MATTHEWS: Yeah.  THOMAS: He's going to bring all different sides together.
(:21) Evan Thomas on Inside Washington (6/6/09).  THOMAS:  "We're understanding what Obama is, he's the Great Teacher.  He's this guy that stands above everybody, there's some kind of ascension to it, but he stands above everybody and says, 'Now listen, you people have to stop blaming each other unreasonably, you have to get along here, and I'm going to show you the way.'  It is a pretty brave role, in many ways.
(:42) Newt Gingrich at the Republican fundraiser last night.  NEWT:  "Let's be clear.  This is not something that President Obama inherited from George W. Bush. He got his stimulus, on his schedule, for his amount, delivered by his robots in Congress, who did exactly what they were told without reading the bill.  So he can't turn around now and say, 'Oh darn, George Bush made me have a stimulus plan.'  This is his plan, and what happened?  They promised that we would peak at 8% unemployment and on Friday we were at 9.4% which is not in their budget, which means their budget is already wrecked because we're going to have higher unemployment, greater government expenses, and less revenue than they projected because their plan has already failed."
528-538Andrew Marin is president and founder The Marin Foundation (themarinfoundation.org), a nonprofit that seeks to build bridges between the GLBT community and the religious community.  His latest is entitled Love Is An Orientation: Elevating The Conversation With The Gay Community.
(From the website) MISSION STATEMENT – The Marin Foundation's mission is to build a bridge between the religious and GLBT communities through scientific research, and Biblical and social education.
In all that The Marin Foundation encompasses, we will always have a dual-realm existence firmly planted in both the religious and GLBT communities.
Therefore, our two-pronged process works to educate, equip and provide both the religious and GLBT communities with tangible experiences and relevant teaching that brings each group to have a better, and more clearly defined understanding of the other. At a base level, our challenge to the religious community is to step outside of anything they have ever heard of or known regarding the GLBT community and journey to the threshold of their own individual understanding of what it means to live a life attempting to find meaning in one's sexuality and faith. The Marin Foundation's work is comprised of what we call the New Christian Paradigm.
The Marin Foundation's New Christian Paradigm challenges the broader Christian community to look inside themselves first; examining their own life-long presuppositions of what it truly means to build a bridge with the GLBT community. Our goal is not to change the GLBT individual first, but rather change our own hearts, minds and souls by distinctly refreshing, renewing and refocusing our intent, approach and applications in how to productively build a God-centered bridge within the broader social context of today's society.
Just the same, we seek to assist the GLBT community in fully knowing and discovering what an unconditional and trustworthy one-on-one relationship with the Creator tangibly looks like. The past is truthful; the pain is real; the experiences are genuine; and in validating the existence of those in the GLBT community we always supply a transparent environment that continually opens a safe space to be who you are in learning how to discover what eternal love from God feels like. Too often people look for validation in the wrong places; earthly places. Whether that validation comes from us, your church, your family or your friends – it all will not matter as the only True validation comes from our Father; and should be sought after as such. These topics are thoroughly covered throughout our Track #1 Classes and Programs – Acculturating Oneness.
