At the national prayer breakfast speech on the growing threat to religious liberty around tee world, the message was odds with his commitment to the issue: “we believe that each of us is “wonderfully made” in the image of God. We therefore, believe in the inherent dignity of every human being—dignity that no earthly power can take away—for the killing of the innocent is never fulfilling God’s will; in fact, it’s the ultimate betrayal of God will”. THIS FROM A GUY WHO BACKS ABORITONS AND LETTING THOSE WHO SURVIVE THE ABORTION LEFT TO DIE)
These words were uttered by a man who twice voted against the Infants Born Alive Act, capped off a speech to Planned Parenthood with the “GOD bells you”, and it currently bringing the full force of the federal government down on religious employers who don’t think abortion should be covered by the company health plan.
The main focus of obama speech—religious persecution abroad—was also at odds with his adm commitment to the issue. It’s nice know that the leader of the free world thinks religious persecution is a problem, but what has he done about it??
Maybe we should ask the Rev Suzsan Johnson Cook, until she resigned last fall; Cook was the ambassador –at- large for the office of International religious freedom in the state dept. obama was so unconcerned about religious freedom that he didn’t even bother nominating anyone to head the IRFO before appointing Cook in 2010.
“Dr. Sujay’s resume with no discernible international policy experience, her close ties to the Cinton adm and several ill-defined business ventures, suggest that obama cares little about supporting religious freedom around the world”.
When she stepped down, she did so “amid criticisms that she failed to stand up for some of the worlds most prosecuted victims of religious oppression. According to Religious News Service, while Christians in Egypt, Syria, AFG, and Nigeria were being massacred the ambassador at large was nowhere to be found. Nina Shea a lawyer with Hudson Institute, told RNS she was shocked Cook “would be utterly silent and not speak about the largest, single persecution of the largest single religious minority in the Near East in 1.300 years”, the Egypt’s Copts.
