Exerpted from comments by Chuck Norris.
Among the 50 actions Obama has taken are:
May 2009 – Obama declines to host services for the National Prayer Day (a day established by federal law) at the White House.
Oct. 19, 2010 – Obama begins deliberately omitting the phrase about “the Creator” when quoting the Declaration of Independence – an omission he has made on no less than seven occasions.
April 2011 – For the first time in American history, Obama urges passage of a non-discrimination law that does not contain hiring protections for religious groups, forcing religious organizations to hire according to federal mandates without regard to the dictates of their own faith, thus eliminating conscience protection in hiring.
January 2011 – After a federal law was passed to transfer a World War I memorial in the Mojave Desert to private ownership, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that the cross in the memorial could continue to stand. But the Obama administration refused to allow the land to be transferred as required by law and refused to allow the cross to be re-erected as ordered by the Court.
June 2011 – The Department of Veterans Affairs forbids references to God and Jesus during burial ceremonies at Houston National Cemetery.
September 2011 – The Army issues guidelines for Walter Reed Medical Center stipulating, “No religious items (i.e. Bibles, reading materials and/or facts) are allowed to be given away or used during a visit.”
February 2012 – The Air Force removes “God” from the patch of Rapid Capabilities Office (the word on the patch was in Latin: Dei).
February 2011 – Obama directs the Justice Department to stop defending the federal Defense of Marriage Act.
May 2009 – While Obama does not host any National Day of Prayer event at the White House, he does host White House Iftar dinners in honor of Ramadan.
2010 – While every White House traditionally issues hundreds of official proclamations and statements on numerous occasions, this White House avoids traditional biblical holidays and events but regularly recognizes major Muslim holidays, as evidenced by its 2010 statements on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj and Eid-ul-Adha.
“Many of these actions are literally unprecedented – this is the first time they have happened in four centuries of American history,” Barton concludes following the full list. “The hostility of President Obama toward biblical faith and values is without equal from any previous American president.”
Movie and television star and WND columnist Chuck Norris suggested no matter what Obama calls himself, he should be judged by his actions.
In a series of commentaries, he explained how Obama is using U.S. Special Envoy Rashad Hussain, his own presidential position and others in his administration to deepen and expand the partnerships between the United States and the religion of Islam.
He also detailed Obama’s real spiritual beliefs based upon a rare, in-depth 2004 interview by a religious reporter for a major newspaper, including his beliefs about prayer, sin, heaven, the Bible and the person of Jesus.
Norris wondered why Obama does not “consider it his responsibility to ‘fight against negative stereotypes’ of Christianity.”
“As president, why doesn’t he defend the rights of Christians too, especially those whose voice and freedoms have been suppressed because of opposition?” Norris wrote.
“In just the last few months, why didn’t the president step forward and stand up publicly for any of the following Christians who had their First Amendment rights trampled upon by others, just as he had done for Muslims who are attempting to build the Ground Zero mosque?”
“Why doesn’t the president stand up for the rights of Christian organizations, whose rights to hire same faith or mission-minded employees are protected under the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the First Amendment, but are right now having to urge Congress to reject legislation that would prohibit them from hiring only fellow believers?
“Why didn’t the president stand up for the rights of the North Carolina pastor who was fired from his duties as an honorary chaplain of the state house of representatives after he closed a prayer “in the name of Jesus”?
“Why didn’t the president stand up for the children from the Christian private school who were “abruptly” ordered by a court police officer to stop praying outside the U.S. Supreme Court building?
“Why didn’t the president stand up for the rights of those in Utah who erected 14 memorial crosses on highways for state troopers killed in the line of duty, but were told by federal judges they are to come down because they are unconstitutional?
“Why didn’t the president himself stand up for the human rights of the Christian missionaries and medical team in Afghanistan, including six Americans, to practice medicine and their faith, even after they were murdered by Islamic extremists? Wouldn’t other medical missionaries in Afghanistan appreciate Obama’s defense more now than ever?
“Why didn’t the president stand up for the four missionaries arrested at an Arab festival in Dearborn, Mich., just for exercising their freedom of speech and religion?
“Why didn’t the president stand up for the rights of the Rev. Franklin Graham, the son of the Rev. Billy Graham, who was disinvited from a Pentagon prayer service on the National Day of Prayer because of his “extremist” Christian views and values?
“Why didn’t the president stand up for the rights of the Christian student who was booted from her graduate counseling program at a public university over her belief and conviction that homosexuality is morally wrong?
“Why didn’t the president stand up for the three Christian evangelists who were arrested for sharing the gospel and singing hymns on a public sidewalk outside an Islamic mosque in Philadelphia?
“And, mostly, why didn’t the president stand up for the rights of the Greek Orthodox Church, the only church that was actually destroyed in the Sept. 11 attacks, as church leaders have been frustrated and fouled by New York officials who have virtually turned their backs on the reconstruction of the church near Ground Zero?”
“In countless speeches and actions since taking office, Obama has sympathized and supported pro-Islamic ideologies and practice. That is why the New York Times even recently published a multiple-page report on how the “White House quietly courts Muslims in the U.S.,” Norris wrote
