DURHAM, New Hampshire, June 26, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - President Obama touted his support for funding Planned Parenthood, forcing religious employers to pay for birth control and abortifacient drugs, and ending the militarys Dont Ask, Dont Tell policy on homosexuality at a campaign event before high school seniors in New Hampshire on Monday.
Obama told the students that, by voting for him over GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney, You can decide that instead of restricting access to birth control or defunding Planned Parenthood, we should make sure that in this country, women control their own health care choices, CNSNews.com reported.
Obama was referencing his showdown with GOP House leaders over funding to the abortion giant last year, and his high-profile war with Catholic Church leaders over the birth control insurance mandate, the target of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) ongoing Fortnight for Freedom national prayer campaign this month.
CLICK LIKE IF YOU ARE PRO-LIFE! The president also said voters will decide whether or not we go back to the days when you could be kicked out of the United States military just because of who you are and who you love.
He also appeared to hint at his recent support for gay marriage, saying: If youre willing to meet your responsibilities, you should be able to take care of your family, and own a home, maybe start a business, give your kids a better chance than you had - no matter who you are, no matter where you come from, no matter what you look like, no matter who you love. Thats what America is about.
Obama also included a phrase referencing his past work involving Catholic churches on social justice issues: As a young man, I worked with a group of Catholic churches who taught me that no poverty program can make as much of a difference as the kindness and commitment and involvement of caring neighbors and friends and fellow parishioners.
The sentence is a relatively new talking point that has been repeated in several speeches nearly verbatim since Obamas campaign kicked off this spring.
The Daily Callers Neil Munro wrote last month that Obamas new emphasis on his ties to the Catholic Church is a change from Obamas previous speeches and fundraisers, where he did not mention that, early in his career, he was funded and supported by liberal Catholic officials in Chicago.
The Obama campaigns most vocal Catholic supporter in Chicago was Fr. Michael Pfleger, a left-wing priest sanctioned by Cardinal Francis George for praising the candidate in 2007 as the best thing to come across the political scene since Bobby Kennedy. After he was reassigned to a Catholic high school last year, Pfleger balked, saying he was determined to continue preaching the Gospel in or out of the [Catholic] church.
Obama is a snake who is pushing his evil ideas on the next generation...that way they grow up and think that this is "normal" and we end up with a million or more little Obamas running around this nation.
It would, as the Holy Bible states, be better that a millstone be tied around his neck and he be cast into the sea than to lead the innocent astray...May God have mercy on him.
Well, at least he mentions the military now. It is the connotation that is agravating.
If this menace is not removed from the oval office, hopefully he refuses to go after the election and has to be removed by the marshals, it is the end of the republic.
Yeah... I'm in the new Gay Armed Forces... I'm so f'ing proud.
The line in the sand has been crossed.
Never get between a mother bear and her cubs.
This is not the military in which I served and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone There's going to be much needed undoing to restore our military to a sane position.
