Obama says ‘freedom of religion is under threat’ as Catholics sue administration
The Daily ^ | February 6, 2014 | Christopher Bedford

In a speech during Thursday morning’s National Prayer Breakfast, President Barack Obama acknowledged, “It’s also clear that around the world, freedom of religion is under threat.”

“No society can truly succeed unless it guarantees the rights of all its people, including religious minorities,” he added later.

The Obama administration has been harshly criticized by the Catholic church and civil liberties organizations concerned that Obamacare mandates that organizations provide their employees free access to contraceptives through their health care plans, even if their religious faith calls contraception a sin.

The Little Sisters of the Poor, an organization run by Catholic nuns that provides assistance to the elderly poor, doesn’t qualify for the Obama administration’s exemption of “religious organizations” because they hire people of all religions.

Fighting for his failed Obamacare, the man makes absurd remarks. Would Obama like to explain why Islam gets a pass with his "freedom of religion is under threat" remark....Obama and Obamacare destroy the American right to make their on determination about medical help...actually Obama has given many of his cronies Obamacare passes and have our elected not been excluded from Obamacare? The emperor indeed, has no clothes.

Of course, as soon as Islam would become the majority religion, Obama would no longer defend minority religions.

The moron in chief talks about religion being under attack, when he is the chief attacker.

Should read ‘Obama says freedom to Jihad is under threat as non muslim nations finally begin to react’.

"No society can truly succeed unless it guarantees the rights of all its people, including religious minorities,"
- Obama

What Obama left out: "No society can truly succeed unless it guarantees the rights of all its people, including religious majorities." Obama has no interest in protecting the majority; he sees them as oppressors and loves to infringe on their human rights.

Now, the Obama administration — led by Holder — has decided that Islam is a “race,” [4] and therefore to examine or even to adduce a Muslim’s Islamic beliefs about jihad [5], beheading [6], violence against kuffar [7] (“infidels”), or re-establishing a caliphate [8] is tantamount to racism.”

He deifinitely believes what he’s saying, but he is a muzzie and is referring to freedom of terrorists to kill people. Precursor to an executive order to observe the hajj in the US!

Uh, - - - - Obama - - - .

Yeah - - - .

This will come as a shock to you, but, well - - , the Federal Government is not a Religion.

The Catholics are part of the Christian Religion, and their Freedom of Religion is being threatened by you in the Federal Government.

Its the Limbaugh Theorem on display. Or as it is sometimes called, “The Sgt. Schultz” anomaly...”I didn’t see nothing...I don’t know nothing.”

I was surprised that he ws speaking at the prayer breakfast today. As I understand it, he did not go to church on Christmas Eve or on Christmas Day. I didn’t think he would be interested in a prayer breakfast.

The only thing not a lie about Bath House's life are his two kids, as far as I can tell.

He lives, swims, breathes, and golfs lie after lie after lie....

Lies roll from his purple lips as easily as a bird flies.
