The religion of Barack (Saul) Hussein (David) Obama (Alinsky)

Catholic researcher and writer Stephanie Block has put together a dossier on the followers and sympathizers of Lucifer-loving leftist community organizer Saul David Alinsky (1909–1972), whose philosophies and tactics heavily influenced our current president and a number of other liberals, both inside and outside the church.

Ms. Block writes:
    The four-volume book, Change Agents: Alinskyian Organizing among Religious Bodies, was written to discuss the growing phenomena of Alinskyian organizing, particularly as observed among religious institutions. This material became particularly relevant with the election of Barack Obama, a trained Alinskyian organizer working within faith-based institutions for progressive 'systemic reform' to president of the United States.

    Of particular concern is the manner in which religious institutions are 're-educated' or 're-evangelized' to support progressive political policy. To explain this complicated situation, Change Agents is divided into four volumes. The first, 'A Brief History,' examines the background of Alinskyian organizing, emphasizing Saul Alinsky's relationship to various influential clergymen. During these early years, organizers experimented with several organizational models and discovered that faith-based organizing brought support at the highest levels of organized religion, enabling the construction of extensive networks, based on Saul Alinsky's principles.

    Volume II discusses the mammoth systemic reforms these networks have championed around the country. For example, the movement to establish education 'reform' as envisioned by the Alinskyian networks is less about academics and more about social planning. It is connected to massive economic stimulus programs, large-scale housing projects, universal health care, and comprehensive immigration restructuring.

    This leads to the third volume, which is an exploration of the ideology driving these systemic 'reforms.' There is a chameleonic and manipulative nature to the Alinskyian networks, both as they operate within member institutions and through their skilled use of media. Change Agents looks at the concerted effort not only to change United States governance, but to prepare its churched citizens to accept and support that new form of governance.

    Obviously, the political ramifications to this type of organizing are substantial. The fourth volume of Change Agents describes the influence of Alinskyian organizing on public policy and its expansion from a United States to an international phenomenon. The final chapter details some of the more salient objections to Alinskyian community organizing, among them the abuse and politicizing of religious institutions.
