Letter to the Editor

Vanishing freedom

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Dear Editor,

The Faith and Freedom Coalition's goal since its inception in 2009 is to expose the Obama Administration's all-out assault against Christianity, the family and the moral values that built America.

Legal experts say Obamacare will require pro-life doctors and hospitals to perform abortions if they want to remain licensed. When Barack Obama was a state senator from Illinois, he voted twice to prohibit doctors from administrating life-saving medical care to babies accidentally born alive in botched abortions.

As a friend pointed out, the government complains that there are not enough tax payers to pay the bills. But, if we weren't killing millions and millions of the unborn, wouldn't that alleviate some of this problem?

Barack Obama has made his disdain for America's Christian heritage clear throughout his presidency.

For example, he gave a speech in Indonesia in which he falsely claimed the U.S. motto was "e pluribus unum" when, in fact, it is "In God We Trust."

He mocked Congress for reaffirming America's trust in God through a congressional resolution and argued it was a waste of time.

President Obama has dropped any reference to God as "creator" at least five times when quoting America's Declaration of Independence. Servicemen in Afghanistan are being asked to relinquish their Bibles.

As we speak, the Obama administration and other powerful liberal entities are trying to shut down Fox news, silence conservative and Christian radio and combat conservative groups like the Tea Party and the Billy Graham Ministries.

President Obama forced cap-and-trade on industry by "executive privilege" and is now endeavoring to force an energy tax on traditional sourcess of energy without congressional legislation.

This is illegal and unconstitutional. It will cost us many American jobs and our energy bills will go up.

We all have heard this on TV and radio. But here's one stealthy executive action that underscores recent evidence that President Obama thinks he is above the law.

The Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that a historic giant cross, built by the Veterans of Foreign Wars, which is on private property in the Mojave Desert that honors America's fallen warriors could stay where it is and in no way violated anyone's constitutional rights.

But the Obama Justice Department sent the U.S. Park Police onto this private property in SWAT team fashion and confiscated this beautiful historic cross.

Take heart. The Faith and Freedom Coalition reported that in the sixth year of a presidency, the president's party almost always suffers massive defeats at the ballot box.

Perhaps our Entertainer-In-Chief, whose intentions are hidden from view by the executive branch and whitewashed by the liberal press isn't very funny and will find that the scrutiny of watchdog groups like Judicial Watch and the examination of congressional communities on behalf of the American people will leave him unable to think of a punch line.

A book on the best seller list, The Harbinger, expresses a warning from God that is parallel to an ancient biblical revelation that a nation that turns its back on God will not long endure.

  • This lady is always sort of interesting. In a creepy kind of way. About 80% of Christians believe that abortion is permissible. Either because that choice is the sole prerogative of the mother - or because it's a more modern or enlightened position to take on that sort of thing. The percentage of Christians who agree that gay relationships are ok is about the same. A solid reading of Jesus would lead one to believe that the quest for wealth, power, prestige, etc. were improper pursuits. Yet, I don't know of any Christians at all that aren't knee deep in such goals. Not one. Do Christians love the poor or downtrodden? No, they don't. Do they love their neighbors? Maybe, but only when they are like them. Look at her last sentence. What she should be saying here is that the Christian religion is dying because the Christians have distanced them from the bible. And , also, as a result of their distancing themselves from the bible, they are loosing their country as well. What she is missing here is the direct role of the Christians. She wants to blame someone or something else. This is totally ridiculous. It should also be noted that Jesus did not regard the relation of people to government or people to countries as any great concern. He did, though, believe that people's relationships to each other were paramount - that it matters above all else.

  • Yawn, some more of the Right Wing Tea Party/GOP keeping their word to obstruct the government, cause the voters didn't elect them into office.

    5 years and this bunch of obstructors are still at work. Beware what you are told and read from this bunch. They like to make you think that the

    news media is liberal also.

  • I'm still trying to figure out where Obama forced cap and trade.

  • I'm also wondering if this isn't the cross she is talking about. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mojave_Memorial_Cross

  • Half facts don't make the truth, Paul Harvey gained a following because he told the rest of the story unlike many in the media today.

    I predict that while the president's party usually loses seats in the House and Senate in the 6th year of their presidency that 2014 will be an exception to the norm.

    When your stated "facts" are inaccurate, your entire position becomes questionable and appears agenda driven...

    I hate to tell ya, but the bible burning you mention was during the Bush era.
