America’s Most Biblically-Hostile U. S. President

David Barton, founder and President of Wallbuilders, a pro-family organization that also documents America’s forgotten history, wrote the following fact-filled article on President Obama’s  very evident anti-Biblical actions.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Wallbuilders

When one observes President Obama’s unwillingness to accommodate America’s four-century long religious conscience protection through his attempts to require Catholics to go against their own doctrines and beliefs, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Catholic. But that characterization would not be correct. Although he has recently singled out Catholics, he has equally targeted traditional Protestant beliefs over the past four years. So since he has attacked Catholics and Protestants, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Christian. But that, too, would be inaccurate. He has been equally disrespectful in his appalling treatment of religious Jews in general and Israel in particular. So perhaps the most accurate description of his antipathy toward Catholics, Protestants, religious Jews, and the Jewish nation would be to characterize him as anti-Biblical. And then when his hostility toward Biblical people of faith is contrasted with his preferential treatment of Muslims and Muslim nations, it further strengthens the accuracy of the anti-Biblical descriptor. In fact, there have been numerous clearly documented times when his pro-Islam positions have been the cause of his anti-Biblical actions.

Listed below in chronological order are (1) numerous records of his attacks on Biblical persons or organizations; (2) examples of the hostility toward Biblical faith that have become evident in the past three years in the Obama-led military; (3) a listing of his open attacks on Biblical values; and finally (4) a listing of numerous incidents of his preferential deference for Islam’s activities and positions, including letting his Islamic advisors guide and influence his hostility toward people of Biblical faith.

1. Acts of hostility toward people of Biblical faith:

  • April 2008 – Obama speaks disrespectfully of Christians, saying they “cling to guns or religion” and have an “antipathy to people who aren’t like them” 6
  • February 2009 – Obama announces plans to revoke conscience protection for health workers who refuse to participate in medical activities that go against their beliefs, and fully implements the plan in February 2011. 2
  • April 2009 – When speaking at Georgetown University, Obama orders that a monogram symbolizing Jesus’ name be covered when he is making his speech. 3
  • May 2009 – Obama declines to host services for the National Prayer Day (a day established by federal law) at the White House. 4
  • April 2009 – In a deliberate act of disrespect, Obama nominated three pro-abortion ambassadors to the Vatican; of course, the pro-life Vatican rejected all three. 5
  • October 19, 2010 – Obama begins deliberately omitting the phrase about “the Creator” when quoting the Declaration of Independence – an omission he has made on no less than seven occasions. 6
  • November 2010 – Obama misquotes the National Motto, saying it is “E pluribus unum” rather than “In God We Trust” as established by federal law. 7
  • January 2011 – After a federal law was passed to transfer a WWI Memorial in the Mojave Desert to private ownership, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that the cross in the memorial could continue to stand, but the Obama administration refused to allow the land to be transferred as required by law, and refused to allow the cross to be re-erected as ordered by the Court. 8
  • February 2011 – Although he filled posts in the State Department, for more than two years Obama did not fill the post of religious freedom ambassador, an official that works against religious persecution across the world; he filled it only after heavy pressure from the public and from Congress. 9
  • April 2011 – For the first time in American history, Obama urges passage of a non-discrimination law that does not contain hiring protections for religious groups, forcing religious organizations to hire according to federal mandates without regard to the dictates of their own faith, thus eliminating conscience protection in hiring. 10
  • August 2011 – The Obama administration releases its new health care rules that override religious conscience protections for medical workers in the areas of abortion and contraception. 11
  • November 2011 – Obama opposes inclusion of President Franklin Roosevelt’s famous D-Day Prayer in the WWII Memorial. 12 November 2011 – Unlike previous presidents, Obama studiously avoids any religious references in his Thanksgiving message. 13
  • December 2011 – The Obama administration denigrates other countries’ religious beliefs as an obstacle to radical homosexual rights. 14
  • January 2012 – The Obama administration argues that the First Amendment provides no protection for churches and synagogues in hiring their pastors and rabbis. 15
  • February 2012 – The Obama administration forgives student loans in exchange for public service, but announces it will no longer forgive student loans if the public service is related to religion. 16

Obama Admin Spends $750K on Soccer Field for Gitmo Detainees

Obama wants to cut the military’s health benefits. Obama gives Gitmo detainees a soccer field. Are we perfectly aware of what Obama is doing to this country now?

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

 

Big Peace

President Obama pledged to shut down Guantanamo Bay at the very outset of his administration; within two days of his inauguration, he issued an executive order to close the facility within a year. We are now three years into the Obama Administration, and Gitmo is still open.

 

But not only is Gitmo still open, it’s getting an upgrade: a new soccer field costing $750,000 for detainee use. Not only did the Obama Administration spend that cash, they organized a media tour to show that Camp Gitmo is now Club Med. This isn’t the first recreation facility at Gitmo; it’s actually number three. And now the detainees – yes, these are terrorists and terrorist supporters – can now spend up to 20 hours a day in the park.

Why, it’s enough to drive you to quit your job and join Al Qaeda, just for the benefits America will provide you. As Fox News notes, “Detainees like Usama bin Laden’s personal cook and his driver are spending less time in prison than American citizens prosecuted in federal courts on lesser charges.”

President Obama’s new midnight basketball plan for stopping terrorism is bound to fail. But it’s all for PR anyway – it’s designed to show our enemies how much we care about them, and to buy European support for our anti-terrorism policy. Otherwise, why spend $750,000 on a facility that was supposed to be abandoned years ago?

Dick Morris: ‘Dont’ listen to all this gloom and doom stuff’ Obama Will Lose

Expose Obama

It seems with the negative approval ratings and his dismal performance,Obama is unlikely to overcome in November;he will be gone and will take his Senate majority with him. A safe bet would be to look for moving vans to appear at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in mid January of next year.

Outrage After HuffPo Contributor Calls Catholics ‘Jesus Eaters’

communion

 

 

 

The Blaze

Can you mock a religion in public and slough it off as “just a joke?” Writer Larry Doyle thinks so.

On February 24th, the Huffington Post published a piece on its Comedy page entitled “The Jesus-Eating Cult of Rick Santorum.” The author of the post is Larry Doyle, a writer with credits on such serious TV dramas as The Simpsons, Beavis & Butt-Head, and Looney Tunes.

Mr. Doyle initially promoted the post on his Twitter feed this way.

Huffington Post Contributor Larry Doyle Calls Catholics Jesus Eaters

I’m guessing that tweet did not drive enough traffic to the site, so Doyle followed up with another tweet, using a more offensive and incendiary headline.

Huffington Post Contributor Larry Doyle Calls Catholics Jesus Eaters

That tweet lit a fire and traffic has been buzzing to HuffPo and his story.

I have read the post (and Doyle’s non-apology apology). My initial response was one of non-surprise. We so often see people trashing/mocking someone or something after they have broken away from that person or thing, do not understand it, or are afraid that it is gaining influence in their world. Perhaps all three conditions exist here.

So what’s so offensive?

The headline for starters.

Bill Would Allow Non-doctors to Perform Abortions in California

Los Angeles Times

A state senator is proposing to significantly expand access to abortion in California by allowing licensed nurse practitioners, physician assistants and nurse midwives to perform nonsurgical versions of the procedure in the first trimester of pregnancy.

Sen. Christine Kehoe (D-San Diego) late last week introduced SB1501, which would allow medical professionals who are not doctors to perform aspiration abortions, which is the procedure most often used to terminate a pregnancy in the first trimester.

Kehoe said she introduced the bill because half of California’s counties do not have an abortion provider. The proposal is cosponsored by the leaders of each house of the Legislature, a sign it has significant support in the Democrat-dominated body.

“We believe it will give many California women access to earlier, safer procedures in the first trimester of their pregnancy,” Kehoe said at a news conference in Sacramento on Tuesday.

Obama At UAW: ‘Would Have Been Another Great Depression’ Without Auto Bailout

Our silver-tongued President doesn’t understand that there still is a “Great Depression.” The American public is greatly depressed because he is our President.

Journal Editor Defends Pro-infanticide Piece: Killing Newborns is Already Legal in Holland

When did we come to the point that we no longer put any value on life?  When did we lose our conscience?
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

The editor of an ethics journal that recently published an article advocating infanticide (what the authors call “post-birth abortion”), has responded to widespread criticism by pointing out that promoting the killing of newborns is nothing new: in fact, in the Netherlands infant euthanasia is already legal and practiced.

Editor Julian Savulescu also criticizes what he calls the “hate speech” directed at the authors of the article, arguing that the public’s response to the piece shows that “proper academic discussion and freedom are under threat from fanatics opposed to the very values of a liberal society.”

In the journal article Alberto Giubilin, a philosopher from the University of Milan, and Francesca Minerva, an ethicist from the University of Melbourne, made the case that “after-birth abortion” should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is perfectly healthy. They base their argument on the premise that the unborn baby and the newborn do not have the moral status of actual persons and are consequently “morally irrelevant.”

In response to the backlash, Savulescu wrote that the arguments in the article “are largely not new and have been presented repeatedly in the academic literature and public fora by the most eminent philosophers and bioethicists in the world, including Peter Singer, Michael Tooley and John Harris.”

He also observes that the paper “draws attention to the fact that infanticide is practised in the Netherlands.”

The fact that The Netherlands already permits the killing of disabled newborns is not widely known, even by many in the pro-life movement. The practice is permitted under the so-called Groningen Protocol, which outlines the circumstances under which a physician may deliver a lethal injection to a newborn who suffers from a disability, at the request of the child’s parents.

Obama Cuts to Military Health Care Spark Outrage

AP Images

 

 

The Washington Free Beacon

The WFB’s recent report on an Obama administration proposal to slash health care benefits for active duty and retired military has sparked a fierce reaction against the White House from friends of the American military.

The American Action Network, meanwhile, has started a Facebook petition to tell “the president that our men and women in uniform should come before his union cronies.”

Here is a taste of what some of our readers had to say about the article:

… Not only does the military have another disincentive for new recruits, but active duty personnel and retirees become a pawn again for the administration’s socio-economic “makeover.”  Yet another thing chaplains will be discussing with folks on drill weekends, I think….

Fr. Charles H. Nalls

Washington, D.C.

I am a 20 -ear navy veteran and none of what these people are doing to our military men and women, both active duty and retired, surprises me in the least bit.  All of this is pure politics in the sense that Obama’s coveted unionized government workforce will not have to feel the same pain that we will.  Let’s hope that Congress does not pass any legislation on this and God willing, we’ll be rid of Obama soon!

I would like to point out that retirees are just coming off of a 3-year pay freeze. Civilians and Active Duty had Cola increases.

Also, the recent requirement of ObamaCare that kids remain on parents’ insurance DID NOT include Tricare, so retirees that were helping their children had to purchase separate insurance for them.

It seems the Military is already doing more than there fair share.

Roswell, NM

I am an active duty wife of 16 years strong, also grew up in a retired military household.  My husband retires from active duty this year, dedicating his life, family, and livelihood to the military. We don’t live the glorious life people think we do. We must live on a budget, whether both of us work or not. Active or retired, we were promised a certain plan. We live day by day on that plan. Obama is not keeping the promise that the government agreed to every time my husband reenlisted. I am very sad to think my husband served all these years for a president to do this. I as a mother and wife do hope and pray that
this is stopped. We have given up so much just to have and give that feeling to our country. Thank you for your article, it is very informative.

Great article and thanks for the insight. When I was in the Army (1988-2008) I found it odd that when cuts came, the civilian support personnel seemed to skate through the cuts unscathed. … The hypocrisy from within … telling military personnel to tighten their belts, while the civilian contractors and their corporate sponsors get rich, makes me lose faith in a system I supported for so many years.

Occupy Wall Street Proposes a List of Demands

Perpetual Adolescents

 

Glenn Beck

Occupy Wall Street has long been criticized for not having any cohesion or any plan to speak of. It’s been a collection of leftist radicals who want some crazy change or another, but never has there been one unified message. Until now – it’s taken them a while, but finally their brilliant plan has been revealed.

Read some of their demands one supporter presented on their website:

Repeal the Taft-Hartley Act. Unionize ALL workers immediately.

Raise the minimum wage immediately to $18/hr. Create a maximum wage of $90/hr to eliminate inequality.

Institute a 6 hour workday, and 6 weeks of paid vacation.

Institute a moratorium on all foreclosures and layoffs immediately.

Repeal racist and xenophobic English-only laws.

Open the borders to all immigrants, legal or illegal. Offer immediate, unconditional amnesty, to all undocumented residents of the US.

Create a single-payer, universal health care system.

Pass stricter campaign finance reform laws. Ban all private donations. All campaigns will receive equal funding, provided by the taxpayers.

Institute a negative income tax, and tax the very rich at rates up to 90%.

Pass far stricter environmental protection and animal rights laws.

Allow workers to elect their supervisors.

Lower the retirement age to 55. Increase Social Security benefits.

Create a 5% annual wealth tax for the very rich.

Ban the private ownership of land.

Make homeschooling illegal. Religious fanatics use it to feed their children propaganda.

Reduce the age of majority to 16.

Abolish the death penalty and life in prison. We call for the immediate release of all death row inmates from death row and transferred to regular prisons.

Release all political prisoners immediately.

Immediate withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Abolish the debt limit.

Ban private gun ownership.

Strengthen the separation of church and state.

Immediate debt forgiveness for all.

End the ‘War on Drugs’.
