• Ray Comfort and The Obama Trillion Dollar Bill

    I went to a public restroom the other day and saw an obviously phony Obama bill on the ground. Thinking that it was a Tea Party tract, I picked it up and put it in my pocket because I always like to know what the crazies are saying. To my surprise it wasn’t a Tea Party tract. It was even better – A Ray Comfort tract!!!!

    Here is what the front side of the bill looks like:

    As you can see, the questionably racist drawing of Obama was the first thing I saw. It looks like something some wacky Tea Party group would put out. Plus, it is a trillion dollar bill which plays in to their fallacious argument that Obama is responsible for our large national debt. It wasn’t until I turned it over and read the reverse side of the bill, that I realized that it wasn’t the Tea Party. The wordy script is Ray Comfort’s signature argument from his “Way of the Master” series. He also uses it in all of his direct to DVD movies (which I reviewed HERE, HERE, and HERE).

    In small print, on the side of the bill you can see Comfort’s website, LivingWaters.com. I couldn’t find the Obama bill for sale on the website, but I did see it in the background of his video for the Sampler Set of tracts. So I assume it comes with that. Here is that video:

    I want to draw your attention to the Wallet Tract. This is pretty much an amplification of this bill tract gag. The goal is to trick people and Comfort makes that very clear.

    Their arguments suck and they know it, so they need to find new ways to trick unsuspecting people – and he has the audacity to preach that lying is sin while he is actively engaging is deception. His whole ministry is about lying in some form or another. Oh the irony.

    In an attempt to point out the lying that Comfort does during his interviews, I interviewed him last year. It seems he knows what he is doing is wrong and doesn’t want to be treated how he treats others. Imagine that.

      1. Just abut every political cartoon extenuates certain features of people to shed a negative light on that person. The fact the President Obama is black does not give him a pass. And there so much cartoon going on here, hehe.

    1. Yeah you lost all credibility when you said “as you can see a questionably racist…” No I can’t see! The only person who could see or even claim such a thing is an obvious racist themself.
