Obama’s Ongoing Anti-Christian Agenda

No administration in modern times has been more hostile to the public expression of religious faith than Obama’s. Consider these facts:

Obama declined to hold public services in the White House commemorating the National Day of Prayer, which had been the practice of his predecessors.

In September 2011, his Department of Health and Human Services terminated funding to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops for its extensive program to assist victims of human trafficking and modern-day slavery. The reason? Objections to Catholic teaching on abortion and contraception.

In 2013 Obama’s inaugural committee forced pastor Louie Giglio, whose Atlanta church was nationally known for its efforts to combat sex trafficking, to withdraw from delivering a prayer at the inaugural ceremony after an audio recording surfaced of a sermon Giglio delivered in the mid-1990s referencing biblical teaching on homosexuality. When it came to praying at Obama’s second inaugural, no pastor holding to an orthodox view of Scripture had need to apply.

His Justice Department canceled a $30,000 grant to a program for at-risk youth because it allowed voluntary, student-led prayer, and the oath recited by its young charges mentioned God.

He advocated passage of a version of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act prohibiting private employers from declining to hire gays and lesbians that granted no genuine exemption for religious ministries and charities. 

The Defense Department canceled an appearance by Franklin Graham of Samaritan’s Purse at a National Day of Prayer observance because of Graham’s alleged anti- Muslim bigotry. 

Obama’s campaign removed a reference to God from the Democratic Party platform and only moved to reinsert it after news outlets reported the exclusion and controversy erupted. 

Each of these acts of bias against public expressions of faith may have an explanation, but taken together they reveal a pattern of hostility directed at the right of religious people to fully participate in civic life. They also reveal the lie of Obama’s posturing prior to the 2008 election and his comforting assurances that he deplored the Democratic Party’s past insensitivity toward religious belief. Obama’s God-talk, like all his other talk, bore no resemblance to what he actually did as president or the policy agenda he pursued.
