Religious, Moral Issues Are Above Obama's
President Barack Obama delivered a speech yesterday during the Notre
Dame Graduation commencement ceremony that was rife with heretical
views of Christianity.
"It is obvious from Obama's speech that matters pertaining to religion
and moral issues are still above his pay grade," said Operation Rescue
President Troy Newman. "As an ordained elder in the Presbyterian Church
in America, I can say with conviction that Obama holds apostate views
on the roll of Christianity in the world and the moral issues that
spring from those teachings such as, abortion, stem cell research, and
Obama told the 2009 graduating class of Notre Dame that of the problems
facing the world today, "no one person, or religion, or nation can meet
these challenges alone."
This statement is in direct contradiction to orthodox Christianity
which teaches that Christians are the "light on the hilltop" that
illuminates society with the wisdom of God, apart which there can be no
answers to the world's problems.
Obama urged those who disagree on abortion to "work together to reduce
the number of women seeking abortions by reducing unintended
pregnancies, and making adoption more available, and providing care and
support for women who do carry their child to term."
Yet, Obama's policies of providing tax-funding for abortion here in
this nation and abroad only work to encourage and increase abortion. In
fact, the ones who are currently working to do the things recommended
by Obama are almost exclusively Christian pro-life groups.
Obama further stated, "Let's honor the conscience of those who disagree
with abortion, and draft a sensible conscience clause..." But Obama has
threatened to eliminate the conscience clause that would allow doctors
and hospitals to refuse to commit abortions based on religious
Obama referred to "Open Hearts. Open minds. Fair-minded words."
"Obama would have Americans open their hearts and minds to the shedding
of innocent blood, and would cloak the slaughter of innocent children
in 'fair-minded' words," said Newman. "Yet the Bible teaches us that we
should rescue those who are being led to the slaughter and give
practical assistance to those who are in need. Obama attempts to
deceive the people into thinking that we should, for the sake of unity,
turn a blind eye to greater evil of abortion to focus on social
programs that do not solve the root problem of decriminalized
child-killing in our nation."
"If there was one phrase to describe Obama's presentation at Notre Dame
it would be 'apostate hypocrisy,'" said Newman. "Obama should refrain
from making comments on religious and moral matters and should confine
his remarks to subjects with which he has more familiarity."
