Posted on 09/21/2012 4:50:24 AM PDT by IbJensen
Is President Barack Obama Americas most Biblically-hostile U.S. president? This is the label that conservative historian David Barton has given Obama, as the nation continues its debate over the presidents controversial contraceptive mandate.
But for Barton, the situation transcends the current discussion about religious freedom and the Catholic Church, as the frequent guest on Glenn Becks radio and television shows develops his provocative argument in detail. He writes:
When one observes President Obamas unwillingness to accommodate Americas 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.
Barton then goes on to list, in chronological order, the presidents purported attacks in the following sections:
(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 Islams activities and positions, including letting his Islamic advisors guide and influence his hostility toward people of Biblical faith.
Parts One and Two can be read, below:
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 arent like them.
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.
April 2009 When speaking at Georgetown University, Obama orders that a monogram symbolizing Jesus name be covered when he is making his speech.
May 2009 Obama declines to host services for the National Prayer Day (a day established by federal law) at the White House.
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.
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.
November 2010 Obama misquotes the National Motto, saying it is E pluribus unum rather than In God We Trust as established by federal law.
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.
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.
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.
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.
November 2011 Obama opposes inclusion of President Franklin Roosevelts famous D-Day Prayer in the WWII Memorial.
November 2011 Unlike previous presidents, Obama studiously avoids any religious references in his Thanksgiving speech.
December 2011 The Obama administration denigrates other countries religious beliefs as an obstacle to radical homosexual rights.
January 2012 The Obama administration argues that the First Amendment provides no protection for churches and synagogues in hiring their pastors and rabbis.
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.
2. Acts of hostility from the Obama-led military toward people of Biblical faith:
June 2011 The Department of Veterans Affairs forbids references to God and Jesus during burial ceremonies at Houston National Cemetery.
August 2011 The Air Force stops teaching the Just War theory to officers in California because the course is taught by chaplains and is based on a philosophy introduced by St. Augustine in the third century AD a theory long taught by civilized nations across the world (except America).
September 2011 Air Force Chief of Staff prohibits commanders from notifying airmen of programs and services available to them from chaplains.
September 2011 The Army issues guidelines for Walter Reed Medical Center stipulating that No religious items (i.e. Bibles, reading materials and/or facts) are allowed to be given away or used during a visit.
November 2011 The Air Force Academy rescinds support for Operation Christmas Child, a program to send holiday gifts to impoverished children across the world, because the program is run by a Christian charity.
November 2011 The Air Force Academy pays $80,000 to add a Stonehenge-like worship center for pagans, druids, witches and Wiccans.
February 2012 The U. S. Military Academy at West Point disinvites three star Army general and decorated war hero Lieutenant General William G. (Jerry) Boykin (retired) from speaking at an event because he is an outspoken Christian.
February 2012 The Air Force removes God from the patch of Rapid Capabilities Office (the word on the patch was in Latin: Dei).
February 2012 The Army orders Catholic chaplains not to read a letter to parishioners that their archbishop asked them to read.
Hussein’s already doubled down....
The Weather Channel kept telling me this morning about John Boehner and the evil Republicans wanting to hurt farmers and starve all the (food) Stampers.
He left out that obama has at least twice stated that America is no longer a Christian Nation and that indeed, we are one of the largest MUSLIM nations in the world.
Obama’s a “Black Liberation Theology” communist. BLT is a bogus religion concocted by communists decades ago. See my FR Home page for all you’d want to know about it.
The Bible doesn't command that we only pray for the good rulers. And the command to pray for Obama is not a command that we vote for him or hope he wins the election.
And with all that list, Obama offends the atheistic element because he attends the National Prayer Breakfast and says he's a Christian.
Satan is called the Father of All Liars and this Spawn of Satan POTUS and his people are the biggest liars I have ever seen in my lifetime by a mile. Goebbels seems like Honest Abe in comparison.
In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obamas pastor in a heated interview about his Churchs teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...
Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.
Catholics for Marx [Liberation Theology]
By Fr. Robert Sirico
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, June 03, 2004
In the days when the Superpowers were locked in a Cold War, Latin America seethed with revolution, and millions lived behind an iron curtain, a group of theologians concocted a novel idea within the history of Christianity. They proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus with the teachings of Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow the economics of capitalism.
The Gospels were re-rendered not as doctrine impacting on the human soul but rather as windows into the historical dialectic of class struggle. These "liberation theologians" saw every biblical criticism of the rich as a mandate to expropriate the expropriating owners of capital, and every expression of compassion for the poor as a call for an uprising by the proletarian class of peasants and workers.
Andrea Shea King has said that David Barton is a birther. I wish he would go public with it.
LOVE David!!! Great American and a good man. Mr. Barton could write a dinner menu and I guarantee I would buy it!
Satan is called the Father of All Liars and this Spawn of Satan POTUS and his people are the biggest liars I have ever seen in my lifetime by a mile.
So, while we're at it, should we pray for Satan too?
Obama is a man, not Satan. The Bible doesn’t command us to pray for Satan.
And I thought my disgust with the Kenyan Clown and his circus could go no lower. Truly, this is among the most vile acts by any Western government that I can recall: forbidding a family religious solace at a funeral is beyond the pale.
This nation cannot bear another four years of the Kenyan Clown.
I realize that Governor Romney has done things in the past that I didn't like, and he certainly will do things that I won't like when he is President. But this nation cannot bear another four years of the Kenyan Clown. Even President Carter wasn't this bad. Even FDR wasn't this bad. Neither of them literally hated this country; Obama does hate and despise these United Statres.
The Kenyan Clown has fully earned his title as the worst occupant of the Oval Office in our history, and he must be turned out in November's elections.
Hmmm...nobody seems to be able to prove it:
No college transcripts
Fake SS number
Fake selective service app
No employment history
No voting record
No law license
If he's a man, then he's the witness protection president.
