Skip to comments.Obama’s dangerous mistake: attacking religious freedoms
Posted on 05/22/2012 8:23:07 AM PDT by jmaroneps37
Americas religious communities are fighting back against Barack Obamas attack on our religious liberties. The first dozens lawsuits have been brought by Catholic entities against Obamacares regulation requiring them to provide contraception services in their employee health care coverage. This is just the beginning.
Since Obama started his war on religious freedoms he has driven faith guided voters from the Democrat Party to the Republican Party. The politically lethal contraception mandate destroyed the Democrats in 2010 even before its violence to religious teachings was widely known.
Given the bumbling disjointed nature of the Republican Party it would be hard to credit the large shift of voter allegiance to the GOP to steps John Boehner and Mitch McConnell have taken. That leaves only one other possibility: Barack Obama himself.
A 2011 Pew survey using 15,644 respondents with a 1% margin of error documents the dramatic rightward march among all voters and categorized its findings by religious affiliation.
Pew found that since 2008 White Evangelical Protestants under 30 have made a 15 point move to the Republican Party leaving them 82/13 Republican. Evangelicals over 30 have made a 4 point move to the Right and are now 69/25 Republican.
Compared to 2008 White Catholics under 30 have made a virtual 180 degree turn in their Party allegiance and are now Republican by a rate of 54/40.
Overall Obamas war on those who hold religion as a most important element of their lives has driven former Democrat voting Catholics to favor the GOP by a rate of 52/41.

findings among Catholic voters. In 2008 weekly Mass attending Catholics where evenly split between Democrats and Republicans and in fact Obama won the Catholic vote 54/46;

To the article’s author: it isn’t a mistake.
It is politically unwise...but it is not a “mistake”.
Obama can not do otherwise. It’s a key part of his Marxist dogma.
Think of it as crafting a sharp spear point by chipping away the extraneous material.
Campaign ad by the Catholic Church. Sound up and enjoy:
Obama and his Regime should love this one as well as his cohorts in Congress.
obama cares not a white for religion except as it helps him achieve his agenda
His followers see him as a new-age black JC
But, kinda hard to be the messiah turning over money changer tables in the temples when this faux messiah is only sitting in the WH because of money changers like Soros and Buffet
That, more than anything else, is going to get him out of there.
It is time to oppose the same sorry mistakes that McCain and the RINO Party made in 2008.
It is also time for us as Conservatives to recognize and avoid making the same sorry mistakes that WE made in 2008.
One mistake that we made in 2008 was to revert back to the old days when we were known as The Silent Majority. We grumbled, held our noses, and Caved-In as all good RINO sheep are expected to do.
Our Silent Caving-In in 2008 created the problem that MANY Conservatives refused to vote for McCain.
IF we behave in 2012 as RINO Sheep and Cave-In to whoever the RINOs endorse, nominate and support, then we Conservatives are no better than our RINO U.S. Representatives and Senators who always Cave-In.
This election is for ALL of the marbles! We cannot afford to play the old RINO game that caused the defeat of McCain to Marxist Obama in 2008.
Obama is much stronger politically now than he was against McCain in 2008, but the RINO Party refuses to consider that reality.
It is time to DUMP ROMNEY who is obviously to weak of a candidate to beat Obama.
The Delegates need to choose in an OPEN Convention a strong NON-RINO Nominee who can soundly defeat Obama, and coat-tail U.S. Senators and Representatives into Congress.
Romney is not that man: DUMP ROMNEY!
We must learn from the mistakes made by the McCain Campaign and rub the collective noses of the RINOs in it!
Romney is counting on the old Classical Conservative Cave-In.
I can hear Romney now: You have no choice but to vote for me. Ill be even more severely Conservative than I was when I rammed through Romneycare. Trust me, I know how The Economy works. Etc, etc., etc.
The battle to win back a CONSERVATIVE White House is starting to break wide open!
I hope you are right.
Like I said his war on religion isn’t a mistake, he’s doing it on purpose. He can’t help himself and it will be his undoing. Same happened with his supposed GOP war on women crap.
The secular left will be back in 10 to 15 years to see if socialists have the numbers to put Christians where they want us.
Obama has thrown his chips in now though. If he wins in November after pulling this, he can move the timetable up by 10 or 15 years.
