As a Christian, these things trouble me…
• President Obama voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act when it was brought to the Illinois senate while he was a senator. The Born Alive Infant Protection Act is a bill that would grant legal rights to babies who survived a failed abortion and therefore would be given medical care instead of being left for dead. Who in their right mind could vote that a baby born alive could be left for dead?
• The president dodged the question about when life begins, at the Saddleback Church Forum during the primaries by saying the creation of life is above his pay grade. With all the advances in medical technology and the ability to hear and see a baby at virtually all stages of development in the mother’s womb, how could he say that? Isn’t Obama obligated to protect as many lives as possible?
• President Barack Obama said in Turkey: "We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideas and a set of values."
• On May 7th, the annual National Day of Prayer was held, but the president attended no events for it.
• When President Obama spoke at Georgetown University, a religious symbol behind him was covered by some plywood. Also after worshiping in the Rev. Wright’s church for 20 years, the president is no longer affiliated with a specific church.
• For more than 40 years, the Air Force has flown over the “God and Country Festival,” in Idaho, but not this year. The Pentagon says it cannot provide planes because the festival endorses religion. Again the Air Force cooperated with the festival 42 years in a row but will not this year.
Did I leave anything out? Let me know if I did or what YOUR comments are on all of this.
I won’t even get started on my concerns about how Obama is handling the economy…at least not right now…
