'Religion Is Under Threat'

Feb. 7, 2014

As the saying goes, if it weren’t for double standards, the Left wouldn’t have any. Barack Obama demonstrated this point to perfection at the annual National Prayer Breakfast where he warned that “freedom of religion is under threat … around the world.” He neglected to mention, however, that organizations like Little Sisters of the Poor and Hobby Lobby are suing his administration because they object to contraceptives mandated under ObamaCare in violation of their religious views. Even more astoundingly, Obama claimed, “We … believe in the inherent dignity of every human being,” and “the killing of the innocent is never fulfilling God’s will; in fact, it’s the ultimate betrayal of God’s will.” Remember, this is a man who supports abortion under any and all circumstances, even in its most appalling partial-birth form, and who once told Planned Parenthood “God bless you.” The seemingly total lack of self-awareness is beyond shocking.
