America's Most Biblically-Hostile President? (REPRINT)

Feed(s): 

 

I received the following from my friend Steve, which was originally compiled and researched by David Barton of Wallbuilders. Please read carefully. There are many links in this piece that will describe each item in more depth.  There are also a host of footnotes to reference each item.         Steve Clark 

 When one observes President Obama’s  unwillingness to accommodate America’s  four-century long religious conscience  protection through his attempts to require  Catholics to go against their own doctrines and  beliefs, one is tempted to say that he is  anti-Catholic. But that characterization would  not be correct. Although he has recently singled  out Catholics, he has equally targeted  traditional Protestant beliefs over the past  four years. So since he has attacked Catholics  and Protestants, one is tempted to say that he  is anti-Christian. But that, too, would be  inaccurate. He has been equally disrespectful in  his appalling treatment of religious Jews in  general and Israel in particular. So perhaps the  most accurate description of his antipathy  toward Catholics, Protestants, religious Jews,  and the Jewish nation would be to characterize  him as anti-Biblical. And then when his  hostility toward Biblical people of faith is  contrasted with his preferential treatment of  Muslims and Muslim nations, it further  strengthens the accuracy of the anti-Biblical  descriptor. In fact, there have been numerous  clearly documented times when his pro-Islam  positions have been the cause of his  anti-Biblical actions.
  Listed below in chronological order are (1)  numerous records of his attacks on Biblical  persons or organizations; (2) examples of the  hostility toward Biblical faith that have become  evident in the past three years in the Obama-led  military; (3) a listing of his open attacks on  Biblical values; and finally (4) a listing of  numerous incidents of his preferential deference  for Islam’s activities and positions, including  letting his Islamic advisors guide and influence  his hostility toward people of Biblical  faith.
  1. Acts of hostility toward people of  Biblical faith:

 

 2. Acts of hostility from the  Obama-led military toward people of Biblical  faith:

 

 3. Acts of hostility toward Biblical  values:

 

  • January 2009 –  Obama lifts restrictions on U.S.      government  funding for groups that provide abortion  services      or counseling abroad, forcing taxpayers  to fund pro-abortion groups      that either promote  or perform abortions in other nations. 26 <http://www.wallbuilders.com/LIBprinterfriendly.asp?id=106938#FN26>        

 4. Acts of preferentialism for  Islam:

 

 Many of these actions are literally  unprecedented – this is the first time they have  happened in four centuries of American history.  The hostility of President Obama toward Biblical  faith and values is without equal from any  previous American president.
