“Today, we profess the principles we know to be true. 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. And central to that dignity is freedom of religion — the right of every person to practice their faith how they choose, to change their faith if they choose, or to practice on faith at all, and to do this free from persecution and fear.”
It’s difficult to believe that these are the words spoken by President Obama earlier this week at the National Prayer Breakfast. He can’t possibly mean what he said! How does the “inherent dignity of every human being — dignity that no earthly power can take away” jive with the actions of the most pr0-abortion President ever, a President who is joined at the hip with Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider?
“And central to that dignity is the freedom of religion…..” What? Words from an individual whose administration argued vehemently in Court just a few weeks ago that the Little Sisters of the Poor have no right to define what their own religious beliefs are, let alone be allowed to practice them.
I would truly like to respect our President as the leader of our nation. It is speeches like this with deceptive words that do not match devastating actions that cause profound cynicism and distrust.
