Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize? Give me a break!


OSLO — President Obama won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday in a stunning decision designed to encourage his initiatives to reduce nuclear arms, ease tensions with the Muslim world and stress diplomacy and cooperation rather than unilateralism. [full story]

If the Nobel Committee had anything left to lose, they just lost it. There have been zero concrete results from anything Obama has done that merit a “peace” prize. The world is upside down.

Do you know how many living saints there are in this world that are out doing amazing real work for peace that could and should be recognized and promoted with an award like this?

The Nobel prize is far too often just a popularity contest for liberal ideologues. It’s a political tool, not an honest award.  And it’s the ultimate act of worship by the liberal world elite of their golden children.  What a joke and a sadness that something once so respected has lost any real meaning.  Congratulations, Barack, a small committee of secular, elitist “progressives” somewhere in the world really love you.

Just remember the third temptation of Christ when he went into the desert.

“Again the devil took him up into a very high mountain, and shewed him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them, and said to him: All these will I give thee, if falling down thou wilt adore me. Then Jesus saith to him: Begone, Satan: for it is written, The Lord thy God shalt thou adore, and him only shalt thou serve.” (Matthew 4: 8-10; Douay-Rheims Bible)

Apparently the president so much wants to be a part of the “world,” (Notice he always calls himself a ‘citizen of the world’) that he forgets his most important obligation which is glorify the Lord. But he likes the world better.

President Obama has done more for world peace in 10 months than his predecessor George Bush ever did. Recall that George Bush led us (by deception) into an unjust war according to the Catechism and both Holy Fathers. Even if the prize was premature how can that be bad for any American? Like John McCain said, all it does is raises the expectations the world has on Obama. Maybe now he’ll be more aggressive in pursuing world peace (not the Bush (non-Christian) form of aggression).

What does him being (arguably) more peaceful than Bush have anything, at all, to do with him winning a completely undeserved and frankly ludicrous nobel peace prize?
