Obama, Hypocrite in Chief, Holds Prayer Breakfast

This morning, at the annual National Prayer Breakfast, President Obama, whose signature healthcare law restricts freedom of religion, claimed the banner of religious liberty. And as the most pro-abortion president in American history, Obama said he believes "in the inherent dignity of every human." In addition, although the president has taken virtually no action with Iranian leaders concerning their imprisonment of a pastor for behaving as a Christian in their country, Obama told those attending his breakfast that the pastor should be released, and he offered prayers.
“. . . I’ve made the case that no society can truly succeed unless it guarantees the rights of all of its peoples . . .”
-- President Barack Hussein Obama

Speaking at the annual National Prayer Breakfast, Obama cast his message as an international call for human rights, singling out countries that he said have fallen short, particularly when it comes to extending protections and freedoms to all faiths.

Obama also offered prayers for Kenneth Bae, a U.S. missionary being held in North Korea, and Saeed Abedini, an Idaho pastor who is in custody in Iran. Bae was arrested in November 2012 in North Korea while leading a tour group and sentenced to 15 years of hard labor for unspecified anti-government activity. Supporters say he did nothing wrong. Abedini, who is of Iranian origin, has been held since September 2012 and is serving an eight-year sentence after being convicted of trying to establish a network of Christian churches in private homes.

From "Obama: ‘Freedom of Religion Is Under Threat’" by Jared A. Favole, Wall Street Journal 2/6/14

In his address to the National Prayer Breakfast, an annual gathering of lawmakers and numerous faith leaders, Mr. Obama  said it’s clear that “around the world freedom of religion is under threat.”

. . . Mr. Obama also mentioned Pastor Saeed Abedini, who was arrested in Iran for his efforts to spread Christianity and sentenced to eight years in prison on national security charges. “As we continue to work for his freedom, today, again, we call on the Iranian government to release Pastor Abedini, so he can return to the loving arms of his wife and children in Idaho,” the president said.

Mr. Obama, a Christian, told the gathering that God’s teachings led him to do community service in Chicago and to his wife, Michelle. His faith, he said, “led me to public service, and the longer I serve, especially in moments of trial or doubt, the more thankful I am of God’s guiding hand.”

From "Freedom of Religion Is Central to Human Dignity, Obama Says at National Prayer Breakfast" by Napp Nazworth, Christian Post Reporter 2/6/14

"Today we profess the principles we know to be true," he said. "We know 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 no faith at all, and to do this free from persecution and fear."

The United States leads the world in promoting religious freedom, which is one of the main foreign policy goals of the United States, Obama declared.

"Promoting religious freedom is a key objective of U.S. foreign policy, and I'm proud that no nation on Earth does more to stand up for the freedom of religion around the world than the United States of America."

“Our concern should not be whether God is on our side, but whether we are on God’s side,” he said.
