Part 9: Obama’s Religious Agenda for America by Mike Scruggs
Publishers note: Mike Scruggs wrote this piece prior to the 2012 Presidential Election. It is even more appropriate now than it was then. In his second term, President Obama has appointed an alleged convert to Islam as head of the CIA and his administration continues to show favor to Islamic terrorists, including the handling of the surviving Boston Marathon terrorist and the Islamist Ft. Hood Mass Killer.
During the White House Correspondents Dinner last Saturday night, President Obama and Conan O’Brian joked about the President being born outside the United States and growing up as a Muslim. It was a great psychological trick. Mushy-headed media morons in the audience cheered and applauded. “How cute,” they must have thought. He had them mesmerized.
Mike Scruggs deals in facts. Quotes from his article are not a joke. He quotes Obama from his U. N. speech and from his book, The Audacity of Hope.
In his recent address to the UN, President Obama said:
”The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam.”
This is a far more serious statement than many people realize. Any criticism of Muhammad or Islam is considered blasphemy in Islamic doctrine and Sharia Law, even punishable by death. One of the major tenets of Biblically-based Christianity is that salvation is through Christ alone. John 14: 6 states, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Christianity and Islam thus stand in direct contradiction, and this is only one of many. Quoting any Bible verse or stating any doctrine touching salvation through Jesus is thus “slander” against Islam. In fact, any failure to acknowledge and submit to Muhammad as Allah’s Prophet is considered slander.
Obama then went on smoozing the UN and the U.S. press about tolerance and free speech. However, if you are familiar with Obama’s attempts to take Christ out of military hospitals, restrict military chaplains from praying in Christ’s name, and other actions marginalizing Christianity and its symbols, you know this is pure hypocrisy. Since last December, on Obama’s behalf, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been working with the 56-member nation Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on ways to enforce a United Nations resolution against “Islamophobia” (proven by any criticism of Islam) in the United States and other Western nations. Under this resolution, “Islamophobia” would be a hate crime. So while Obama is smoozing everybody about free speech and tolerance, behind the curtains, he is working on marginalizing Christianity by making Christian speech a hate crime against Islam.
This should come as no surprise. In his 2008 book, The Audacity of Hope, page 261, he states:
”I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
Yet in the body of his speech, Obama refers to himself as a Christian: “Like me, the majority of Americans are Christian.” On this, I can only quote Matthew 7:16: “You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes or figs from thistles?”
In a March 2012 article, David Barton lists 25 instances of Obama hostility toward Biblical faith since 2008, of which 9 involve suppressing Christianity in the military. He lists 17 Obama acts of hostility toward Biblical values and 8 acts favoring Islam over Christianity since 2009.
Well surprise, surprise. This was the guy who disrespectfully described Christians in 2008 as “clinging to guns or religion.” And then there was the National Democrat Party Convention a few weeks ago. Not only did the delegates boo at the thought of putting God back into their platform, they rejected the welcome gifts of approximately 100 Charlotte area churches because they were pro-life.
In the Welsh patriotic anthem, “Men of Hartech,” there is a verse that is appropriate here:
”Men of Harlech quit your dreaming. Can’t you see their spear points gleaming?”
