When asked about President Obama’s faith on an MSNBC interview, Franklin Graham responded, “You have to look at what a person does with his life. Anybody can say they’re a Christian.” According to Pew Research, only about one-third of adults (34%) think Obama is a Christian, down sharply from 48% in 2009. About 20% believe he’s Muslim. Fully 43% say they do not know what Obama’s religion is.
The president claims the Christian faith, and this confuses some folks, particularly the less informed. For this reason and because we have a pivotal Presidential Election today, it is vital we address the issue and measure his actions against the Bible. If just five percent more Christian conservatives vote in this election instead of staying home, it’s over for Mr. Obama.
Some believe Obamacare is the most important 2012 election issue; and according to polls, the majority of Americans oppose it. Catholic hospitals, universities, and churches are being ordered to provide coverage for abortion-inducing drugs violating their religious beliefs. As Ann Coulter stated, “The reason we have Obamacare is not because the public was clamoring for the federal government to take over health care. It’s because the Democrats had 60 senators.”
America has never been as divided and polarized as it is today under a president who promised to reach across the aisle, unite people, and heal the world.
In 2008, American citizens, many Christians included, refused to use common sense and wisdom and judge Barack Obama by his own words; his anti-biblical stances; and his questionable Chicago associations, history, and liberal activism. Why do people of faith continue blindly supporting him and the current Democratic Party platform?
Jesus Christ taught believers to analyze and evaluate a person’s life by looking at what they do and how they live. You will know them by their fruit. If we listen to what President Obama says regarding Christianity and then observe what he does, it can be confusing; things don’t add up.
For example, most Americans – I’m not even talking about just Christians here – believe abortion is wrong and a sin. The president holds the most extreme views on abortion, including refusing to give aid to a baby born alive during a failed abortion procedure. Many consider this infanticide. Obama voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act as an Illinois Senator.
It’s no surprise that in the 2012 campaign and election cycle, Planned Parenthood (who receives federal funding) has spent $13 million in attack ads against Mitt Romney in efforts to re-elect Obama. Some may argue Planned Parenthood provides counseling services. It’s true. They are an abortion business that counsels women to have abortions. The ratio of abortions to adoption referrals is a shocking 340 to 1. But I digress.
Let’s look at just a few of the Obama administration’s actions and policies in the last four years. President Obama was the first president in America’s history to mention non-believers in an inaugural address when he said “We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus, and non-believers.” In his first year in office, Obama ended National Prayer Day services at the White House. President Truman signed the first National Prayer Day proclamation, and President Reagan made it permanent. For years, it was a staple on the White House calendar.
