Barack Obama 'Savages' Catholic Education
American Thinker ^ | 06/20/2013 | Jeannie DeAngelis

Posted on 06/20/2013 7:50:13 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

It's already been firmly established that if a person, group or ideology disagrees with Barack Obama, he becomes fixated on them and then, any opportunity he gets, he makes provocative comments that could be interpreted as a warning shot. The message? Barack Obama doesn't forget ideological unfaithfulness, and if he can, he'll shut you up by shutting you down.

The president has imposed his bad attitude on, to name but a few: Conservatives, specifically of the tea party brand, right-leaning talk radio, Fox News, and the group the left views as the seat of pro-life advocacy, the Catholic Church.

Catholicism is a prime target because it's an autonomous, self-governing entity that continues to insist on having the freedom to exercise the First Amendment right to freedom of religion, and has defied the administration by refusing to submit to Obamacare contraceptive and abortion directives.

So while in Northern Ireland for the G8 summit, Obama didn't waste the opportunity to taunt Catholics worldwide by saying inflammatory things to schoolchildren. Despite the fact that just days prior, Vatican Prefect Archbishop Gerhard Müller told Scots that Catholic education is "a critical component of the Church," Barack Obama, speaking to an audience of about 2,000 students at Belfast's Waterfront hall, made what was described as "an alarming call for an end to Catholic education," saying:

"If towns remain divided-if Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs, if we can't see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to harden-that too encourages division and discourages cooperation.'

It's hard to recall, but when the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner was in Indonesia, Cairo or Turkey, did he also suggest to Muslims that schooling children in madrassas "encourages division and discourages cooperation?"

Yet, the “Sweetest Sound He’d Ever Heard is the Muslim Call to Prayer” Enough said for this towel head.

It's a me, me,me world now. Throw in instant gratification & some freebies and there ya have it.

Why work for something when you're always told you're a victim and get stuff for free?

RE: Only Obama-Catholics.

That’s what worries me, More Catholics voted for Obama than did not.

Forced secularization of the education system is a hallmark of Marxists.

Witness this little Pierre Trudeau production in Quebec in the 1960’s.

Any Catholics that vote for this anti-Christ are CINOs. Their decision to vote for such a person has nothing to do with their Catholicism, which they conveniently compartmentalize and rationalize.

Of course not....”

A great article by Rand Paul. Thanks for posting it.

Yes indeed, but OTO embracing every other left wing initiative that comes along from gun control to the right to a vacation, to wealth redistribution. Thus proving that unless you kiss emperor 0bama's communist backside on EVERY issue, he considers you an enemy.

The Catholic Church is the last vestige standing in the way of Obama’s new world. Tear it down at all costs is what he will try to do. But, he fails to understand he CANNOT defeat GOD.

Nancy Pelosi is a CINO. She should be publicly excommunicated.
