‘Shadow of Darkness’ Passed Because Darkness Descended

Tony Perkins: “If words are what matters, then President Obama used plenty of them in his second-to-last State of the Union Address. But for all 59 minutes, the President seemed to spend his speech – not communicating, but convincing. In this latest installment of presidential priority-setting, ‘legacy’ seemed to take precedence over ‘leading’ a divided government. … Amazingly, on a day that saw an Islamist attack on Yemen, an American ally in the fight against al-Qaeda, the President had the audacity to proclaim, ‘The shadow of crisis has passed.’ If the shadows have passed, it’s only because true darkness has descended. An administration that ignores these threats and leaves Christians to suffer persecution at the hands of radical freedom-crushers here and abroad doesn’t know the meaning of the word ‘crisis.’ If the President got anything right, it’s this: we are turning the page. In fact, most Americans already did – in November, when they sent Washington a message of real change. Not the kind of change offered in veiled agendas or clever turns of phrase. But the kind of change it took to make America, ‘the greatest nation the world has ever known.’”
