U.S. Infanticide Just as Ungodly as Syrian Genocide

THE HEART OF GOD IS GRIEVED NOT ONLY BY THE SUFFERINGS OF SYRIAN CHILDREN, BUT ALSO FOR THE MASS MURDER OF UNBORN AMERICAN CHILDREN.

THE HEART OF GOD IS GRIEVED NOT ONLY BY THE SUFFERINGS OF SYRIAN CHILDREN, BUT ALSO FOR THE MASS MURDER OF UNBORN AMERICAN CHILDREN.

“Well over 1,000 people were murdered; several hundred were children,” said President Barack Obama.

“These appalling violations against children must stop and those carrying them out held accountable,” read a report from Save the Children.

 “The great tragedy of this century; a disgraceful humanitarian calamity,” declared Antonio Gutteres, UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

How ironic the outpouring of outrage over the mass murder of children at the hands of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime when there is barely a peep about the mass murder of unborn children here in the United States.

The killing of several hundred children in Syria’s civil war has President Obama ready to unleash hell on Damascus. Yet, America’s hypocrite-in-chief is perfectly sanguine that more than one million pre-born babies in this country are victims of abortion each and year.

That’s because Mr. Obama has sold his soul to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion provider. “Thank you, Planned Parenthood,” the president publicly declared this past spring, adding, blasphemously, “God bless you.”

No less hypocritical is Save the Children, the non-governmental organization, whose motto claims: “We save children’s lives. We fight for their rights. We help them fulfill their potential.”

Well, they sure didn’t save the lives of the more than one million unborn children killed last year by Planned Parenthood and other of America’s abortionists. They haven’t fought for the unborn’s right to life. They haven’t helped babies developing in the womb fulfill their potential.

As to Mr. Gutteres, head of the UN’s refugee office, his pronouncement that the civil war in Syria, and resultant carnage, is “the  great tragedy” of this century couldn’t be more absurd.

It is indeed a great tragedy that Syria’s civil war has claimed the lives of nearly 6,000 innocent children, including more than 400 that reportedly were victims of chemical weapons.

Yet, the death toll for Syria’s children is not a tenth, not a hundredth, not even a thousandth that of unborn children aborted this century here in the United States. This slaughter of innocents is America’s shame. It is nothing less than a latter day holocaust.

That Mr. Gutteres, the UN apparatchik, thinks the mass murder of roughly 14 million unborn American babies since the start of the new century is less tragic, less disgraceful than far fewer Syrian deaths over the same the span reveals his myopic world view.

That Save the Children, which claims to save children’s lives, has been absolutely mute in the face of U.S. infanticide reveals the fecklessness of the selectively outraged NGO.

And that Barack Obama his given his presidential imprimatur to America’s unGodly abortion-industrial complex  reveals that he is on moral par with Assad, the Syrian devil.

US Aid Subsidizes Persecution of Christians

U.S. FOREIGN AID SHOULD NOT GO TO COUNTRIES, LIKE EGYPT, WHERE CHRISTIANS ARE PERSECUTED.

U.S. FOREIGN AID SHOULD NOT GO TO COUNTRIES, LIKE EGYPT, WHERE CHRISTIANS ARE PERSECUTED.

Much has been made – and rightly so – of recent news reports that President Obama somehow managed to find a spare $250 million to send to Egypt while warning American taxpayers about “immediate, painful, arbitrary budget cuts” to come as a result of the so-called sequester.

The president’s dishonesty offends. But what particularly outrages is that he gifted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi with U.S. foreign aid even as his Islamist regime continues to persecute the country’s Coptic Christians, who make up 10 percent of Egypt’s population.

CNN recently reported, “Threats by Muslim extremists against Coptic Christians in the past year have forced scores of Christian families to flee their homes in Dahshur and the Egyptian border town of Rafah.”

For Egypt’s Copts, memories remain fresh of Islamist terror attacks upon their churches two years ago, as well as violence suffered at the hands of Egyptian military and security forces by Christian protestors demanding protection of their places of worship.

The reason Mr. Obama has no compunction whatsoever about cutting a quarter-billion dollar check to Cairo – a mere down payment on more than $1.5 billion Morsi’s government  will receive in 2013 – is that the more than three-quarters of Americans who count themselves Christian haven’t uttered a peep in protest.

Well, we should be silent no more. We should raise voices until they are heard all the way to Washington. We should demand that Congress withhold foreign aid to countries, like Morsi’s Egypt, in which our brothers and sisters in Christ are being persecuted.

The initial targets should be the ten countries that are, both, among those for which Mr. Obama has proposed the most foreign aid in 2013, according to the State Department’s foreign assistance dashboard, and those that rank among the 50 countries where persecution of Christians is most severe, according to the 2013 watch list compiled by Open Doors, an international faith-based organization.

Here, then, is The Christian Diarist list of the Worst of the Worst U.S. Foreign Aid Beneficiaries:

Afghanistan. The president proposes to send $2.5 billion this year to Kabul (not including U.S. funding of continuing military operations). According to Open Doors, Christians cannot meet in public and even gatherings in private houses require extreme caution. No church buildings exist, even for expatriates. Both local and foreign Christians are subject to kidnapping, abduction, killing, often having to flee the country.

Pakistan. Mr. Obama’s foreign aid budget includes $2.2 billion for the ally – supposedly – that harbored Osama Bin Laden. Many of Pakistan’s persecuted Christians are uneducated manual workers, says Open Doors, who suffer unfair treatment from employers. Muslim men continue to sexually assault underage Christian girls. Opening a new church building is virtually impossible and emigration of Christians continues.

Iraq. The government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki looks forward to $2 billion from Washington. Christians in Iraq are on the verge of extinction, Open Doors warns. Large numbers of persecuted Christians have fled abroad or to the (until recently) safer Kurdish region. The church faces many challenges, not the least, members being killed or abducted.

Egypt. For the reasons previously stated.

Jordan. King Abdullah II is expecting $671 million from U.S. taxpayers. Public evangelization of Muslims is against government policy. There is no official recognition of those that leave Islam for Christianity. Converts can find their marriages annulled and children taken from them.

Nigeria. Lagos has a $600 million payday coming from Washington. The government of President Goodluck Jonathan has done little to reign in the Nigerian terror group, Boko Haram, whose attacks upon Christian churches have claimed the lives of at least 800 Christ followers.

Tanzania. President Obama has earmarked $571 million for this Christian majority African nation. On the Zanzibar archipelago, Islamic militants are bent on wiping out all Christians. They have burnt and looted churches and threatened persecuted Christians with death.

Kenya. The birthplace of the president’s father looks forward to $460 million in U.S. largesse. Like Tanzania, Kenya is a Christian majority country. However, according to Open Doors, in the Muslim-majority areas there are high levels of intolerance and hostility towards Christians. Al-Shabaab and similar Islamist terror groups were responsible last year for a high level of violence against Christians, according to Open Doors, with 22 killed and more than 10 churches were burnt, looted or destroyed.

Uganda. Mr. Obama proposes $438 million for Kampala. Muslims are spread over the whole country. They live in pockets, and in those areas Islamist extremists present a serious threat to the Christian church. Meanwhile, local authorities controlling those Muslim areas discriminate against  Christians, barring them from public office or denying them promotion.

Ethiopia. The government of Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn is in line for $351.3. Converts to Christianity, as well as “underground believers,” have to be exceedingly cautious to avoid being traced by Islamist extremists, like the terror group, Kewarjah, which is blamed for repeated attacks against Christians in the country’s southwest.

The Devil Works in Insidious Ways

RON WHITE HEADLINES UPCOMING CMT COMEDY SPECIAL IN WHICH HE JOKES ABOUT BEING BANNED BY CHRISTIANMINGLE.

RON WHITE HEADLINES UPCOMING CMT COMEDY SPECIAL IN WHICH HE JOKES ABOUT BEING BANNED BY CHRISTIANMINGLE.

CMT just issued a press release promoting “an evening full of laughs” featuring comedian Ron White. “The cigar-smoking, scotch-drinking White headlines the 90-minute special,” said CMT, “giving his thoughts on being banned from the popular dating site ChristianMingle,” among other hilarious topics.

I find it interesting that CMT, which is owned by Viacom (which also owns MTV and VH1), would so prominently mention White’s riff on ChristianMingle. Especially in the wake of the recent arrest of a Del Mar, Calif. man charged with raping a woman he met on the online dating site.

Police suspect that Sean Patrick Banks used different aliases to prey upon unsuspecting women on the Christian site as he traveled frequently across the country for his job. Investigators are currently trying to identify other of Banks’ pitiable victims.

I don’t know whether CMT thinks it funny that ChristianMingle has been infiltrated by an online sexual predator. But there should be nothing funny about it to Christ followers, including those of us who usually find “Tater Salad” – as White is known – amusing.

Because what we are witnessing with ChristianMingle is spiritual warfare. And I say that not just because I published a Valentine’s Day post praising the site, an online destination place for hundreds of thousands of Christian singles looking for love with someone with whom they can share their faith life.

The Bible warns us that our adversary, the devil, walks about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. And I am convinced that nothing so appeals to his appetite than devouring – corrupting – the pure, the innocent, the holy, the Godly.

It began in the Garden of Eden, when the evil one corrupted Eve, who then corrupted her husband Adam. And such corruption has continued down through the ages, to this very day, manifesting itself in ways most sordid.

Indeed, is there anyone who doubts the devil successfully infiltrated the Catholic Church? How else do my Catholic friends explain the more than 10,000 child sexual abuse claims against more than 4,000 Catholic priests here in this country?

Or what about the unholy partnership between the Girl Scouts of the USA – founded by Daisy Gordon Low to promote the spiritual development (along with the physical and mental) – with Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortionist?

Is not the entertainment industry under demonic influence, most obviously the adult film business, which devours young females barely older than Girl Scout Ambassadors (16 to 18 years of age), subjecting them to the most profane sexual degradation.

And who does not imagine that the evil one did not whisper in the ear of the president of the United States when he justified his endorsement of homosexual marriage by invoking the Golden Rule? When he blasphemously insisted that to “Treat others the way you would want to be treated” is to blithely accept a lifestyle the Bible declares “an abomination”?

Those of us who are Christ followers must be always on our guard against our adversary, the devil. And we must pray without ceasing for God’s divine protection, that neither we nor our loved ones fall prey to that roaring lion.

Has President Obama Suddenly Gotten Religion?

THE FIRST FAMILY MADE A RARE CHURCH APPEARANCE ON INAUGURATION DAY.

THE FIRST FAMILY MADE A RARE CHURCH APPEARANCE ON INAUGURATION DAY.

President Obama began his Inauguration Day by attending worship services at St. John’s Episcopal Church in the Nation’s Capital along with his wife Michelle and their daughters Sasha and Malia.

It was a rare church appearance for the First Family. During, during their first four years residing in the White House, they found time for the Lord not even half as many times as they managed to get away for family vacays.

After services yesterday at St. Johns, during which the president stood to receive a blessing from Bishop Vashti McKenzie, the First Family’s next stop was the U.S. Capitol, where Mr. Obama delivered his second Inaugural Address.

What amazed was the number of religious references the president made as he spoke to the hundreds of thousands assembled on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., and the millions more of us watching around the country.

It was so unlike Mr. Obama to speak of “the tenets of our faith.” To agree with the nation’s founders that we are all, everyone, “endowed by our Creator” with certain unalienable rights.

To declare “freedom is a gift from God.” To mention “the eyes of God.” To profess that the planet is “commanded to our care by God.” To advocate the freedom of “every soul on Earth.” To affirm his “oath to God and country.”

Then, to wrap up his remarks not only with the perfunctory “God bless you,” but also by beseeching the Almighty to “forever bless the United States of America.”

I’d like to believe that the President recently experienced some sort of religious transformation, like Saul of Tarsus blinded by the light of the Savior on the road to Damascus.

I’d like to believe that his recent church attendance and religion-infused Inaugural Address are tell-tale signs that he will govern in his second term according to Godly principles.

But, alas, I am unconvinced.

Not the least because of Mr. Obama’s reiteration of his presidential support for homosexual marriage.

“Our journey is not complete,” he said yesterday, “until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. For if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.”

I also found it noteworthy that Mr. Obama neglected to mention abortion, purposely ignoring the fact that the day after his inauguration is the 40th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s unholy decision in Roe v. Wade.

It would have been wonderful if the president had noted the anniversary and stood up for the right to life of the unborn the way he stood up for the supposed right of homosexuals to marry each other.

But the president was silent, signaling his continued support for the nation’s abortionists.

Jesus warned, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.”

President Obama said “Lord, Lord” in his Inaugural Address. But he most certainly is not doing the will of the Father.

PSY’s Lyrics Spit on the Graves of America’s War Dead

KOREAN POP STAR’S APOLOGY FOR ANTI-AMERICAN LYRICS RINGS HOLLOW.

KOREAN POP STAR’S APOLOGY FOR ANTI-AMERICAN LYRICS RINGS HOLLOW.

My son has been deployed overseas the past two years. My wife and I pray every day for his safety and for the safety of all of America’s sons and daughters serving in the nation’s military.

That’s why I find offensive the music video in which Korean pop star PSY appeared in which he wished death upon our men and women in uniform. Like my 23-year-old son, the only child with which my wife and I have been blessed.

It’s also why I am angry that PSY has not been disinvited to an upcoming Christmas concert for President Obama, whom, I have repeatedly reminded my son, must be respected – notwithstanding his policies – because he is the nation’s duly-elected commander-in-chief.

I understand that PSY has apologized for adding his voice to a supposed “protest” song, “Dear American,” which included lyrics urging: “Kill those f***ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives…  Kill their daughters, mother, daughters-in-law and brothers. Kill them all painfully and slowly.”

But I believe the Korean truly meant what he sang. For the Bible advises, “out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” Or, in the case of Mr. Gangnam Style, the mouth sings.

Meanwhile, President Obama has uttered not a word in condemnation of Psy’s anti-America rant, which sounded very much like the kind of chilling declarations heard from the late Osama bin Laden. The White House did, however, issue a statement saying that its not up to them who performs for the president and his family.

Such a cop out is a profound insult to America’s military families. Especially to the families of the more than 6,000 service men and women who died in honorable service to this country since 2004, when PSY was on a Korean stage urging that U.S. military personnel be killed.

PSY cannot walk back his remarks. He said it. He meant it. And not until the emergence of video of the Korean singing for death to the f***ing Yankees – gangnam style – did Mr. 700 million YouTube hits finally repudiate those hateful remarks.

If President Obama appears at a concert at which PSY performs, he will confirm his contempt for the men and women who every day put their lives on the line in defense of their country.

I will no longer be able to tell my military son that the nation’s commander-in-chief deserves his respect.

How Christians Should Respond to Obama’s Re-Election

LET US PRAY THAT THE PRESIDENT, WHO PROFESSES HIMSELF CHRISTIAN, TRULY GOVERNS LIKE ONE.

As I join my fellow Christ followers in lamenting the re-election of a president whose policies have been decidedly unGodly, I am reminded of the words of the Apostle Paul.

“Let every soul,” he instructed, “be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.”

What that means is that sovereign God, in His divine wisdom, has permitted Barack Obama to rule our troubled land another four years.

Just as He allowed Pharoah to rule Egypt during the time of Moses; Ahab to rule Israel during the time of Elijah; and Belshazzar to rule Babylon during the time of Daniel.

That God allowed those wicked men to govern in no way meant He overlooked their unrepentant sinfulness.

Indeed, He brought ten plagues upon Pharoah’s Egypt, the last of which took the life of the ruler’s first-born son.

Ahab was mortally wounded by a random arrow and died ignominiously as dogs lapped up his blood.

And Belshazarr was slain, and his kingdom lost to his enemies, after God passed judgment on him – the proverbial writing on the wall.

The point is that God remains on the throne. That he rules over all the kingdoms and the nations. That in His hand there is power and might. And that no one, not even the putative “leader of the free world,” is able to withstand Him.

So, much as it pains this evangelical Christian, I accept that Barack Obama is our nation’s duly re-elected president. And I do not challenge his governing authority over me and my house.

However, just because the mass of voters returned Obama to the White House for another four years doesn’t mean that same-sex marriage is no longer an abomination; that abortion is no longer murder; that God no longer has a place in public life.

And no matter the outcome of the presidential election, I believe it the duty of Christ followers to “speak truth to power.” To raise our voices in dissent when our elected leaders pass laws and pursue policies which clearly are contrary to God’s supreme law.

I count myself among the more than half of Americans who, according to Election Day exit polls, believe that our nation is “on the wrong track.” I also attribute the social and economic morass in which our country currently finds itself to our governing authorities, who have turned away from God.

That is why it is up to the Christian faithful to stand in the gap for America the next four years. To pray, unceasingly, that our president, who professes himself Christian, will actually govern like a true Christian.

For God has promised, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

Why Christians Should Not Vote For Obama

‘BELSHAZZAR’S FEAST,’ BY REMBRANDT. ‘YOU HAVE BEEN WEIGHED IN THE BALANCES, AND FOUND WANTING.’

The Bible tells the story of Belshazzar, the very last king of Babylon, who held a great feast for a thousand of his lords during which he commanded his servants to bring the sacred vessels which had been pillaged from God’s holy temple in Jerusalem, so that the king and his lords could drink from them.

In the midst of the unholy revelry, a disembodied hand materialized and wrote upon a wall: MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.

It was a message to Belshazzar.

“God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it. You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting; Your kingdom has been divided…”

America is today ruled by a president who defies God, much as Belshazzar did. And for faithful Christ followers who remain undecided how they will vote on Election Day, let us offer ten reasons why they absolutely should not cast their ballots for Barack Obama:

I. The president refuses to acknowledge America’s Christian origins. During a state visit to Turkey, Mr. Obama told his Muslim hosts, “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.” That amounted to a repudiation of the nation’s founders, almost all of whom were devoted Christ followers.

II. The president has undermined the institution of marriage – which heretofore was known as “holy matrimony” – by embracing same-sex marriage. His position defies the Word of God, which unequivocally states, “If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination.”

III. The president is complicit in the slaughter of more than 4.5 million unborn children during his watch, having sold his soul to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion provider. The president even supports late-term abortion and, worst still, the withholding of physician care for babies that actually survive attempted abortion.

IV. The president has said nothing, and done nothing, about the religious oppression, the violent attacks, upon Christian minorities in Muslim-majority countries in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia. The attacks have increased more than 300 percent over the past 10 years.

V. The president only pretends to be a friend of Israel, the birthplace of Christianity. During last year’s G-20 Summit in Canne, French President Nicolas Sarkozy told Mr. Obama that he couldn’t bear Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whom Sarkozy called “a liar.” The president concurred. “You’re fed up?” he said. “I have to deal with him everyday.”

VI. The president gave his imprimatur to a decision to remove any reference to “God” in the Democratic Party Platform, and any declaration of Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel (a designation disputed by Islamists who refuse to accept Israel’s right to exist). He reversed course only after a great public outcry.

VII. The president is hostile to religious freedom as evidence by the argument his  administration made before the Supreme Court that church employees can claim workplace discrimination when their beliefs or conduct are contrary to the tenets of their faith-based employers.

VIII. The president’s health care reform mandates the insurers provide contraceptives on demand for single women – like Sandra Fluke – which amounts to tacit approval of sexual promiscuity.

IX. The president takes spiritual counsel from radical pastors like Jeremiah Wright and Joseph Lowery. Rev. Wright, who married Barack and Michelle Obama, infamously stated that, instead of singing “God Bless America,” blacks should sing “God Damn America.” Rev. Lowry, who spoke at Obama’s inauguration, just recently said, when he was a young civil rights activist, he would say “all white folks are going to hell.” Then he mellowed “and just said most of them are.” Now, he said, he is back to where he was.

X. The president professes himself a man of faith but has managed to attend Sunday church services not even a tenth as many times as he has stolen away from the White House to play golf.

Obama’s Ungodly Policies Risk Black Christian Votes

‘PRESIDENT OBAMA IS LEADING THE COUNTRY DOWN AN IMMORAL PATH,’ SAID REV. WILLIAM OWENS.

Once upon a time, I wrote a newspaper column while onsite at a Democratic National Convention.

I opined that, “It really doesn’t matter who the Democrats nominate as their party standard-bearer – Bill Clinton, David Duke or a loaf of bread – black voters will blindly support him (or it).”

Indeed, blacks have gone overwhelming Democrat since the 1932 presidential election, when Franklin Roosevelt captured 71 percent of the black vote.

Given that history, most political observers expect the same outcome when black voters go to the polls this upcoming November. Especially since one of their own is running for a second term in the White House.

Well, I have a different view. While I expect that the majority of blacks will indeed cast their ballots for Barack Obama, I seriously doubt he will capture 95 percent of the black vote this time around.

That’s because a certain segment of the black population – socially conservative, church-going Christians – are none too pleased with the ungodly positions the president has taken on such issues as same-sex marriage and abortion.

Indeed, the 1,300-member Coalition of African-American Pastors is currently circulating a petition among their church congregations encouraging Obama to reconsider his election-year support for same-sex couplings.

“By embracing gay marriage,” said Rev. William Owens, the Coalition’s president, “President Obama is leading the country down an immoral path. Some things are bigger than the next election.”

Then there’s the National Black ProLife Coalition, a network of pro-life and pro-family organizations. It points out that abortion is the leading cause of death for blacks.

And that Democrat-aligned Planned Parenthood, whose president got podium time at the Democrat convention in Charlotte, is most responsible for the yearly slaughter of pre-born black babies.

“We’re calling out black leaders,” the Coalition declares, “who align themselves with the destructive eugenic force of Planned Parenthood.” That includes Obama, who has sold his soul to the abortion-industrial complex.

So, while a majority of black voters almost certainly will line up behind Obama again – despite the immoral path down which he has led this nation, as Rev. Owens lamented, those that place God above political party, above racial hegemony, will vote not to return him to the White House.

No More Denying Attacks on Religious Freedom

AUTHORITATIVE NEW REPORT PRODUCED BY LIBERTY INSTITUTE AND FAMILY RESEARCH COUNCIL.

“I don’t think, generally, Christians are being persecuted in this country.” So said Barack Obama, during his first run for the White House.

The president won’t be able to make that claim this time around. Not after the release this week of the “Survey on Religious Hostility in America,” jointly produced by Liberty Institute and the Family Research Council (the recent target of such religious hostility).

Liberty and FRC declare, “Hostility to religious liberty has reached an all-time high, and the attacks are increasing at an unprecedented rate.” Their well-researched survey documents more than 600 cases of bigotry against people of faith.

Among the more egregious examples:

– The faithful Christian nurse ordered to assist a late-term abortion at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York or lose both her job and her nursing license.

– The federal judge who threatened a high school valedictorian in Castroville, Texas with “incarceration” unless the young Christ follower removed references to Jesus in her graduation speech.

– The institution of a new policy by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs secularizing funerals for vets at national cemeteries, with no references to God or the veteran’s faith, overriding the wishes of the vet’s family for a religious funeral.

– The Christian couple that managed an apartment complex in Lake City, Florida that was fired by their supervisor for being “too religious” because they displayed a piece of artwork that had pictures of lilies and a quotation from the Book of Matthew, “Consider the lilies of the field…”

– The New Mexico Civil Rights Commission’s finding that Christian-owned Elane Photography Company was guilty of “sexual orientation” discrimination because it refused to photograph same-sex weddings.

If these were but isolated cases, it would be hard for Liberty Institute and FRC to persuade much of the public that religious liberty is under assault throughout America. But their jointly-produced survey has provided example after example after example – more than 600 in all.

One would have to be an atheist, or a recalcitrant Obama supporter, not to see the obvious pattern of hostility toward people of faith; Christians in particular.

LA Times Deceives About Evangelical Leaders

TIMES RELIGION REPORTER MITCHELL LANDSBERG CLAIMS THAT OBAMA AND EVANGELICAL LEADERS ARE ‘ALLIES.’

“Evangelical leaders echo Obama, say U.S. is not a Christian nation.” So read the headline accompanying a putative “news” story published yesterday in the exceptionally liberal, exceedingly biased Los Angeles Times.

Times religion reporter Mitchell Landsberg misleadingly claimed that evangelicals agree with a statement the current president made in 2006 when he was still a member of the U.S. Senate:

“Whatever we once were,” said Obama, “we are no longer a Christian nation. At least, not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of unbelievers.”

What the future president was saying at the time was the various faiths (and non-faiths) were morally equivalent in his world view.  And, in advancing that view, he was effectively repudiating America’s  Christian heritage.

For the United States was founded not by Jews (although Christians worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob). Nor by Muslims or Buddhists or Hindus. And certainly not by unbelievers (notwithstanding the fiction promulgated by atheists that the nation’s founders were “deists” rather than Christians).

Evangelical leaders certainly do not “echo” Obama, as the Times suggested yesterday. They certainly do not agree with the view he expressed back in 2006.

What 68 percent conveyed in a just-released survey released by the National Association of Evangelicals is that they do not consider the United States a truly Christian nation, abiding by the teachings of Christ the Lord.

And most of us who are Bible-believing Christ followers would agree.

For a truly Christian nation would not allow more than a million unborn children to be slaughtered each year by abortionists. It would not defile the institution of marriage by allowing gays, lesbians, transgenders, et al to be lawfully wed.

It would not mandate that health insurers provide contraceptives to single women so that they can be sexually promiscuous without fear of pregnancy. It would not bow to the demands of “nonbelievers” to tear down crosses that honor this nation’s war dead, which have stood on public ground for decades.

That’s the post-Christian America to which Obama referred back in 2006. The nation that has moved further away from the faith of its founders during his presidential watch. Further away from God.

The Times is dead wrong to suggest there is any area of agreement between Obama and evangelical leaders. Including whether he deserves to be returned to the White House.
