President Obama proclaims himself a Christian. But two-thirds of Americans either don’t know it or don’t believe it, according to a new Gallup poll.
I count myself among those who don’t believe it. And not just because the president 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.
The Scripture warns us to beware of those “who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.You will know them by their fruits.”
I believe, as do many evangelical Christians, that Obama is such a ravenous wolf. And the fruits of his presidency bear witness.
On Obama’s watch, more than three and a half million abortions have been performed in this country. Yet, the professed Christian has done absolutely nothing to stop – or even reduce – the ungodly slaughter of the unborn.
That’s because Obama has cast his lot with the nation’s abortionists. “I am pro-choice,” he has declared. He also has stated, “I believe in Roe v. Wade,” the 39-year-old Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion on demand, that denied the humanity of the unborn.
Meanwhile, Obama has so ingratiated himself to the homosexual community that Newsweek magazine admiringly proclaimed him America’s “first gay president.”
He earned that dubious title by repealing the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, ordering his Justice Department not to defend in court the federal “Defense of Marriage” law, and, most recently, coming out in favor of same-sex marriage.
What particularly offended about Obama’s endorsement of same sex marriage is that he dared to suggest that Christ would bless such unholy unions, even though Scripture declares it nothing less than “an abomination” for man to lie with man.
Then there was the Obama administration’s argument before the Supreme Court that church employees can claim workplace discrimination when they are fired because their beliefs or conduct are contrary to tenets of their faith-based employer.
Even Obama’s appointees to the High Court, Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, agreed that the administration’s position amounted to an attack upon religious freedom. That’s why they joined their fellow justices in a unanimous ruling against Obama’s imps.
Finally, there’s the provision of the Obamacare law that requires churches and faith-based employers to not only provide, but also pay for contraceptive for their workers – no matter whether they were married or single.
The controversy went supernova when the president’s Democrat allies in Congress held a hearing at which Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, who turned out to be a radical feminist activist, made the case for why religious institutions should not be exempt from the contraceptive mandate.
When Fluke was taken to task by radio host Rush Limbaugh, who wondered why a single woman like Fluke would need birth control unless she was sleeping around, Obama came to her defense.
That’s because she was doing the president’s bidding, furthering his secularist agenda to force religious institutions to be conformed to this morally fallen world, which bombards young women and men with the message that there’s nothing wrong with sexual promiscuity as long as they use “protection.”
Such are the fruits of the Obama presidency. Little wonder that two-thirds of Americans do not identify him as Christian.
