Well, in the course of his term Obama has attempted to play various roles of others, rather than simply play the role of the president – or even to play that role appropriately. So now he talks, rather lectures about the duties of Christians. Remember that we really don’t know Obama’s religious doctrine but all we know is the time he spent under a black liberation theology scholar.
What has happened in the past week brings me to these deductions.
First, we hear that the Catholics will be forced by Obamacare to dispense contraceptives and birth control. So much for the religious freedom of Catholics and Christians. He demands that they must ignore a central tenant of their faith, thus following a tenant more directly tied to Secular Humanism – the current default religion of the state.
Then second, Obama goes to the prayer breakfast to lecture Christians and clergy declaring that his twisted socialistic view of government is actually upholding Christian doctrine doing the Church’s duties.(It should be thanking him) Anybody see the wide hypocrisy within those two? First he opposes doctrine, and then posits that he is fulfilling Christian doctrine. So, either the church of Obama cannot work its kinks out, or it is actually the church of politics we all presume it is. The sheep (or Christians) better start paying closer attention to who they are putting first – And whom they are putting in the driver seat of government, and why.

With the so-called Obama healthcare “reform” law and the horses out of the barn, Catholic leaders are now complaining with a fevered pitch that the administration’s definition of a “religious employer” is going to force Catholic and other pro-life healthcare providers to choose between violating their consciences or curtailing access to care. Catholic educational institutions will also be forced to provide employees with healthcare plans that are inconsistent with the Church’s moral teachings.

Catholic Churches Distribute Letter Opposing Obama Healthcare Rule
Catholic parishioners around the country were read letters this morning written by church leadership railing against an Obama administration ruling that requires employers to provide health insurance plans that include contraceptive coverage.
Churches and other houses of worship are exempt from the guidelines but Catholic hospitals, colleges, and social services fall under the umbrella of institutions covered by the decision.
At prayer breakfast and with birth-control decision, Obama riles religious conservatives

President Obama drew on the Bible and his interpretation of the Christian faith Thursday to deliver a sharp, if tacit, critique of his chief Republican rival’s economic program, speaking at a forum that in the past has been largely free of electoral politics.
Speaking to about 3,000 people at the annual National Prayer Breakfast, Obama emphasized the importance of his Christian beliefs in his politics and personal life, arguing that his efforts to raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans, promote health insurance reform, help families with college tuition and send troops to prevent human rights abuses in Uganda were grounded in his faith.
