Obama’s Contempt for Christianity

Barack Obama has shown contempt for Christians for many years.  Obama has accused Christians as being intolerant and narrow-minded when their Christian values opposed his Socialist agenda.

A 1995 story that appeared in the Chicago Reader is of interest and should be read in full.  In the story Obama was quoted as saying,

"The right wing, the Christian right, has done a good job of building these organizations of accountability, much better than the left or progressive forces have. But it's always easier to organize around intolerance, narrow-mindedness, and false nostalgia. And they also have hijacked the higher moral ground with this language of family values and moral responsibility.”

Barack Obama told Muslims and the World on April 06, 2009, “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”  Most Americans do not agree with Obama and resent what he said.

President Barack Obama did not release a proclamation in 2011 regarding Easter or Good Friday.  In addition, neither Easter nor Good Friday was mentioned in Obama’s weekend radio address.

When a reporter asked about the absence of an Easter proclamation, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney laughed at the reporter and then proceeded to mock the reporter and another reporter who continued the same line of questioning.

President Obama did release an eight paragraph long statement regarding the 2011 Earth Day.  Earth Day, according to The Washington Times is “a celebration observed by tens of thousands of pagan worshippers of the earth goddess Gaia.”

The Obama White House has made statements in the past regarding major Muslim holidays.

During a Newsmax interview at CPAC last Friday, Newt Gingrich described Obama as “Relentlessly Hostile” to religion.  The Newsmax article on this interview stated,

Newt Gingrich said, “I don’t believe President Obama cares anything about what Catholics think,” pointing out that as an Illinois state senator Obama opposed a bill that would have banned partial-birth abortion.

“He has been relentlessly hostile to traditional religions,” charged Gingrich, who is a convert to Catholicism. “I think that his administration doesn’t share any of the values, and they proved that.

“They might temporarily maneuver for the purpose of getting through an election, but I think everybody ought to look at that and say to yourself, ‘What do you think he’ll do the week after the election?’” he added.

When we evaluate the actions of Barack Obama, we must always hearken back to the words of fellow Marxist Josef Stalin,

"America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life.  If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within."

@May....Religion

May, here is a simple question for you. Does our Constitution not provide for freedom of religion in this country? Yet, you demonize Obama for standing up to that very principle.

Bush II legitimized the Evangelicals, and if Romney were elected, it would legitimize the Mormons. Do you think that Evangelicals will vote for Romney?

This is after all the 21st Century, and there are multiple religions in our great country, which do not meet your prejudiced standards.

Yesterday, you left a multitude of unanswered questions by other posters and myself. Your premise yesterday was: "Obama’s Revised Birth Control and Abortion Insurance Mandate Still Violates the First Amendment." And yet today, you suggest violating that very Constitution by denying others to worship in the manner they choose. When Obama supports that freedom, you cry foul.

You are part of the extreme conservatives who want to yell "The Constitution" when it supports what you believe, and ignore it when you do not agree.

Our Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, period. And President, Obama, who is a Christian, is supporting all religions, regardless of their beliefs and his personal beliefs.

Vote for Rick Santorum, to ensure that Obama wins in 2012!

The Right Shows Their True Colors

The Right does not care what women think.

The Right does not care what blacks think.

The Right does not care what Hispanics think.

The Right does not care what teachers think.

The Right does not care what union workers think.

The Right does not care what homosexuals think.

The Right does not care what the poor think.

The Right does not care what Catholics think (most support the use of birth control).

The Right does not care.........................

P.S. Wow, Dr. May, a little obsessed with President Obama, aren't we? My, my, how the Extreme Conservatives use any issue they can to drum up hatred. America has become a better nation through Progressive movements (civil rights, women's equality) than anything the Conservative movement could ever hope to achieve. That includes our Founding Fathers, a progressive group if there ever was one. Thank God they didn't listen to the Conservatives of the time- they were called Tories.

"Loyalists were typically older, less willing to break with old loyalties, often connected to the Church of England, and included many established merchants with business connections across the Empire..."

Obviousman,

The Left keeps asking the same questions fully expecting that those of us on the Right are somehow going to change our minds and think like Socialists.

I recall that Albert Einstein described as insane those who repetitively do the same things and expect different results.

Obama also expresses serious contempt for Israel.

It is of interest that both Iran and Barack Obama dislike Israel and the United States of America.

@May Questions?

May, if the Right keeps asking the same questions, then why don't you have the answers?

Specific questions were asked to you today, and you simply come back with this lame answer. Enlighten us with specific answers to specific questions. Of course, we know you won't because you don't have those answers.

Here is one for you: Why are you afraid to address the current race for the Republican nomination? Every candidate you have supported has ended up in the dust. Of course, that excludes, the soon to go Rick Santorum. In reality, I hope he makes it to the Texas ballot. Since my vote for Obama will not change the election results for Texas, I want to ensure that the Republican nomination is the weakest candidate. Based on current polling none of the Republican field can beat Obama.

Is that why you are so frustrated? When you bother to respond, your frustrations are exposed.

Democrats oppose Obama’s attack on Christians

Hot Air commented on the latest Rasmussen Report poll. I suggest reviewing the poll and reading the entire article. http://hotair.com/archives/2012/02/08/rasmussen-majority-opposes-obama-contraception-mandate-on-religious-organizations/

“In the political demos, Obama gets more bad news. Democrats support his mandate 60/27, which is not exactly a ringing endorsement. Republicans oppose it 16/75, and a plurality of independents do as well, 43/49. Every income demographic except the lowest of under-$20K and $75-100K opposes it by majorities. Only those who never attend religious services or attend less than once a month support the mandate; all other categories oppose it by large majorities. Even the “political class,” usually reliably liberal, opposes the mandate on religious organizations by 25/63. John Boehner gave a rare speech on the House floor today pledging to fight this new mandate.”

Republican race,

The Republicans are having a great Primary. The Democrats are having a fit because all the Republicans would beat Obama.

I recall that Hillary and Barack put on a great fight through June of 2008. The Democrats were not troubled by this battle.

I am not addressing the Republican Primary at present

I am not addressing the Republican Primary at present because the actions of Obama are far more important to discuss. It is a long way to Tampa, and there is plenty of time to discuss Republicans.

Never before has a sitting President attacked religious beliefs and tried to forcibly extinguish these beliefs with threats of massive fines for non-compliance. This is Marxism in action at a level that even Joe Biden and the other Democrats did not expect.

Even the Democrats are wondering how far Obama would go with his tyranny should he be reelected.

May, you are getting desperate.....

you see the weakness of the Republican candidates and this is the best you can do?

President Obama is a Marxist!! Most far right folks don't believe that crap!

There are things about his policy with which anyone can differ.. However your attacks are of a desperate individual.

May, if you really believe what you post, you might need to seek professional help from a doctor who can look into your head.

To the Right,

To the Right, moderate=liberalism=socialism=communism=fascism.

When it's a Democrat.

These have been on the books since 2000. It is law. Now, the Republicans want us to violate the law? It's actually against the Constitution- based on discrimination against women. Don't believe me? Go look it up.

The same old diatribe

To the Right, moderate=liberalism=socialism=communism=fascism. Not much has changed since the 60s and 70s. Today, May charges the above. In the 60s and 70s those against the Vietnam war were called commie-pinko-fascists. It's all hot air name calling in a desperate effort to strengthen a feeble and apparently Alzheimer-bound extreme conservative right.

A Suggestion, May

With your narrow, bigoted focus on smearing Mr Obama taking so much of your time and energy, how will you find time to effectively perform your duties on the health department committee? Perhaps it's time to step down, from your committee, your blog, your practice and run for office yourself!

@swcowan3

The other day I said that I found it incredible that he had the time to work a full time job with responsibilities and write an article for this blog everyday, besides answer comments made. I said that he must be the figurehead for some extreme right group that wants to go unnamed. Do you think he commented on that? Nothing. Zilch. To many, omission is compliance.

@May RE: Democrats oppose Obama’s attack on Christians

May, you just might want to note that the Rasmussen poll was taken before Obama compromised on the issue.

As to Democrats not liking some of Obama's policies, it won't matter because they will not vote for a Republican candidate.

Doing a little desperate distorting aren't you.

Since you love Rasmussen, you might want to review the polling results on Obama vs the clowns. Rasmussen shows Obama 7 points ahead over Santorum as well as Romney. That is from two days ago.

I seem to recall you touting Rasmussen's accuracy in the past.

Just the facts, please

"The Democrats are having a fit because all the Republicans would beat Obama."

As is so often the case, the facts dispute your hyperbole. Statements such as the one made above show you to be uninformed and willfully ignorant of reality.

In plain non-diplomatic English, you're a liar. Fox News says so, too.

"Barack Obama bests each of the Republican presidential candidates in hypothetical matchups. In addition, the president’s job approval rating hits its highest point in over six months -- despite a decline in optimism on the economy."

@Angela

As President of the United States, with the separation of Church and State, we have in his personal life a Christian, while as President he has promised to uphold the Constitution of the United States. Most, if not all, of the men who signed the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, were raised in Christian homes. Their upbringing was Christian. That, of course, will reflect in how the President leads his administration.

To challenge his Christianity is based inherently on the fact his father was a Muslim (and probably his half-brother). That this President acknowledges other religions as part of this nation seems to bring out prejudice and discrimination against those who do not take the Holy Bible as their religious text by unwavering people who have little world experience, and world experience is not measured in years of life on this planet. This country must not be run by people with static minds, but those with progressive ideas that move people forward.

Anger Management

From Dana Milbank's column in today's A-J:

“How many of you,” Scott Rasmussen asked the crowd at last week’s Conservative Political Action Conference, “have ever mocked or made fun of the president’s call for hope and change? Raise your hands.”

Most in the Marriott Wardman Park ballroom raised their hands. There were cheers and whoops.

“With all due respect,” the conservative pollster told them, “I’d like to say that’s really stupid.”

This time, there was uncomfortable laughter. “Voters are looking for hope and change as much today as they were in 2008,” Rasmussen explained, and “you ought to be encouraging Republican candidates, people you support, to offer that positive step forward.”

May, you could learn something by reading Milbank's entire column. The message is clear, hate doesn't work.

No, what I base his *Christianity* on is his choice of a church and pastor for 20 years by his own admission (Reverend Jeremiah GODAMN AMERICA Wright) and the fact that by reports he has not attended any Church since quitting that one. That, to me, is not Christianity to follow a man who condemns all America calling them the KKK states of America.

Angela, he distanced himself immediately when he saw what kind of man the pastor really was. That speaks volumes about his Christianity. Unlike some people, he at least tries to right a wrong. As for his church attendance, what business is that of yours?

From an article in our own

From an article in our own LAJ:

"He claimed that the goal was now accomplished in a secondary way, after a favorable ruling this past week from a federal court in which the Archdiocese of Milwaukee had filed bankruptcy. He said he was given 30,000 pages of new documents that show how Vatican officials were indifferent to reports of clergy sex abuse."

I think the Church leaders show more contempt for Christianity through their actions than Obama could ever dream of.

Face it, Ob, Angela will find any news story, any items whatsoever to make her case against Obama. She will ignore any positive stories, any facts that support his cause. This is what manipulators do. And the Republican party will have a whole bunch coming out of the woodwork this year- get ready for it.

Where has the outrage been up

Where has the outrage been up until now???? Bunch of hypocrites and manipulators- all of them. Stuff this in your pipe and smoke it, conservatives:

"President Barack Obama's decision to require most employers to cover birth control and insurers to offer it at no cost has created a firestorm of controversy. But the central mandate—that most employers have to cover preventative care for women—has been law for over a decade. This point has been completely lost in the current controversy, as Republican presidential candidates and social conservatives claim that Obama has launched a war on religious liberty and the Catholic Church.

Despite the longstanding precedent, "no one screamed" until now, said Sara Rosenbaum, a health law expert at George Washington University.

In December 2000, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ruled that companies that provided prescription drugs to their employees but didn't provide birth control were in violation of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which prevents discrimination on the basis of sex. That opinion, which the George W. Bush administration did nothing to alter or withdraw when it took office the next month, is still in effect today—and because it relies on Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, it applies to all employers with 15 or more employees. Employers that don't offer prescription coverage or don't offer insurance at all are exempt, because they treat men and women equally—but under the EEOC's interpretation of the law, you can't offer other preventative care coverage without offering birth control coverage, too.

"It was, we thought at the time, a fairly straightforward application of Title VII principles," a top former EEOC official who was involved in the decision told Mother Jones. "All of these plans covered Viagra immediately, without thinking, and they were still declining to cover prescription contraceptives. It's a little bit jaw-dropping to see what is going on now…There was some press at the time but we issued guidances that were far, far more controversial."

After the EEOC opinion was approved in 2000, reproductive rights groups and employees who wanted birth control access sued employers that refused to comply. The next year, in Erickson v. Bartell Drug Co., a federal court agreed with the EEOC's reasoning. Reproductive rights groups and others used that decision as leverage to force other companies to settle lawsuits and agree to change their insurance plans to include birth control. Some subsequent court decisions echoed Erickson, and some went the other way, but the rule (absent a Supreme Court decision) remained, and over the following decade, the percentage of employer-based plans offering contraceptive coverage tripled to 90 percent.

"We have used [the EEOC ruling] many times in negotiating with various employers," says Judy Waxman, the vice president for health and reproductive rights at the National Women's Law Center. "It has been in active use all this time. [President Obama's] policy is only new in the sense that it covers employers with less than 15 employees and with no copay for the individual. The basic rule has been in place since 2000."

Not even religious employers were exempt from the impact of the EEOC decision. Although Title VII allows religious institutions to discriminate on religious grounds, it doesn't allow them to discriminate on the basis of sex—the kind of discrimination at issue in the EEOC ruling. DePaul University, the largest Roman Catholic university in America, added birth control coverage to its plans after receiving an EEOC complaint several years ago. (DePaul officials did not respond to a request for comment.)

As recently as last year, the EEOC was moderating a dispute between the administrators of Belmont Abbey, a Catholic institution in North Carolina, and several of its employees who had their birth control coverage withdrawn after administrators realized it was being offered. The Weekly Standard opined on the issue in 2009—more proof that religious employers were being asked to cover contraception far before the Obama administration issued its new rule on January 20 of this year.

"The current freakout," Judy Waxman says, is largely occurring because the EEOC policy "isn't as widely known…and it hasn't been uniformly enforced." But it's still unclear whether Obama's Health and Human Services department will enforce the new rule any more harshly than the old one. The administration has already given organizations a year-long grace period to comply. Asked to explain how the agency would make employers do what it wanted, an HHS official said that it would "enforce this the same way we enforce everything else in the law."
