Obama's anti-religious implosion
Renew America ^ | 2-12-2012 | J. Matt Barber

Barack Obama may have just lost the election. He has foolishly gone to war in an election year with tens of millions of Catholics, Protestants and Jews — Democrat, Republican and independent alike. He has thrown down a radical feminist gauntlet and dared the Church to pick it up.

They've picked it up.

From running up trillions in debt and deficit, to the vast expansion of the size and scope of federal bureaucracy, Mr. Obama has done more in three years to supplant our 236 year-old Constitutional Republic with a Euro-style socialist autocracy — than a lesser Marxist could have accomplished in a lifetime.

But controlling the purse strings is not nearly enough. A central element of full-blown secular-socialism is the suppression of religious liberty — principally, freedom of conscience.

Karl Marx once said: "The first requisite for the happiness of the people is the abolition of religion."

When Karl Marx speaks, Barack Obama listens.

In what is perhaps the most egregious executive overreach in our lifetime, the president's Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, has unconstitutionally decreed that both Catholic and Protestant organizations must violate fundamental tenets of the Christian faith by providing ObamaCare coverage that includes birth control, sterilization and various forms of abortion. This is as blatant a violation of the First Amendment's guarantee to religious "free exercise" as we've ever seen.

Obama is a puppet. Radical leftists such as David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett (among others) are pulling the strings.

The title misses the mark a little. To be more precise
it could have been “Obama’s anti-infidel implosion”

It’s one of the biggest bone-headed things Obama could have done. But being a diehard socialist in liege to the throngs of nutty feminist radicals, he had to do it. I’m sure his equally socialist radical wife nudged him in that direction. I don’t think she had to twist his arm though.

I disagree. It one of the greatest things he could do...further exposing his destructive ideology to the masses of uninformed. nobama hates children and wants them killed. Remember...he strongly supported the so-called partial abortion in which the breaching baby has their brains sucked out while alive. What a leader...

Some people used to think he was smart,because he knew how to read.

In fact that is his only qualification.

Which if you look at it is better than half the Senate who cannot read and passes bill they never read.

Omoslem is such a scheming moslem.

I hope this latest communist stunt awakens the drones still under the spell of the dirty Marxist.

He’s just testing his power thru incrementalism. A little here, a little there and soon you have it all. The real problem will be in November when Catholics go to the polls and, again, pull the lever for Obama. Some people never learn. For the life of me (and the unborn) I cannot see how any person of faith can vote for this Socialist.

So he REALLY is ‘unlike all those presidents on the US dollars’. Let’s hope we change him out in Nov.

Don’t overlook Obama’s first Executive Order (23 Jan. 09) and clash with the Vatican....

“The Mexico City Policy”

Obama (the evil one) reversed a rule that prohibited the US funding of abortions in Mexico. Obama is one sick person and cannot be trusted.
