Report confirms government hostility to Christianity spiked under Obama

When Obama was elected POTUS, he promised to “fundamentally transform” America.

And transform he sure did — to the worse.

A new report confirms what many of us suspect — that the 8 years of Obama in the White House were hostile to Christianity, which spurred and encouraged anti-Christian forces in America, as seen in a whopping 76% increase in religious freedom violations since 2014.  (Read the report in PDF format here.)

Although the 66-page Family Research Council report is entitled Hostility to Religion: The Growing Threat to Religious Liberty in America, the title really is a misnomer because it is not hostility to any and all religions. The surge in government hostility is directed not at Islam or Judaism or Buddhism or Satanism, but at one particular religion — Christianity. By logical inference and implication, that makes Barack Hussein Obama an anti-Christ.

That the 76% increase since 2014 in hostility to religion is specifically against Christians and Christianity is made clear in Todd Starnes’ Fox News report of June 29, 2017, in which he provides the following examples of government hostility to “religion”:

  • An 11-year-old student in Hattiesburg, Mississippi was penalized for mentioning Jesus in a Christmas poetry assignment.
  • A Christian acapella group at James Madison University was told they could not perform “Mary Did You Know” because it was religious. They were directed to only sing secular songs.
  • An Ohio library banned a Christian group from meeting to discuss natural marriage unless the group also included supports of same-sex marriage.
  • An Oklahoma bank was forced to remove religious Christmas decorations under orders from the Federal Reserve.
  • Allstate Insurance Company fired a Christian staffer for allegedly using a company laptop to write a column against homosexuality. The company said the column violated its diversity standards.
  • In 2011, the class president at Hampton High School in Tennessee wanted to deliver a prayer at graduation. The principal issued an edict that any child who attempted to pray would be stopped, escorted from the building by police and arrested.
  • Principal Frank Lay and Athletic Director Robert Freedom were charged with criminal contempt because they prayed over a meal. The pair was later found not guilty of violating an injunction banning the promotion of religious events at school.
  • San Diego firefighters were threatened with disciplinary action if they refused to participate in a gay pride parade. The firefighters were subjected to verbal abuse and sexual gestures during the parade.
  • A woman who rented out rooms in her home was sued after she refused to rent to a same-sex couple.

Family Research Council (FRC) president Tony Perkins said:

“The recent spike in government driven religious hostility is sad, but not surprising, especially considering the Obama administration’s antagonism toward biblical Christianity. This report is designed to quantify the threat to our First freedom and to challenge Americans to use their God-given freedoms to protect these freedoms we enjoy as Americans.”

Travis Weber, FRC’s director of the Center for Religious Liberty, said he hopes the report will be a wakeup call for all people of faith:

“In a society like ours, we must be the guardians of our own freedom. Anyone who desires freedom in the future must take note of what these trends tell us about our freedom right now – relative to where we have come from – in order to protect freedom from going forward.”

Perkins said the hostility to religion Christianity report underscores the legitimacy of the actions taken by President Trump to end polices in federal agencies that “fan the flames of this religious intolerance.” Perkins points out that despite the increase in hostility, there is some good news in “the growing courage of Christians, especially young Christians, to defend both their faith and their freedoms.”

    Obama was like a duck. On the surface the duck seems to be moving along serenely, peacefully. But what is unseen is below the surface. That duck’s feet are paddling furiously all the time. Obama would speak peacefully, assuringly, while at the same time constantly sending out operatives to carry out his real intentions. Black activists were sent out to every major city to stir up race hatred and violence. People like Mikey Weinstein were sent into the US military to drive out the Christians. Others were sent in to destroy morale. The Muslim Brotherhood had an open door to the white house during Obama’s 8 years. I could spend hours compiling a list, but there is no need. We know Obama is an antichrist.

  5. Once again, the reason for standing up now, fixing what’s broken.
    Take back America. Make America Great Again. With morals…

    “Without God, democracy cannot and will not long endure”
    (Ronald Reagan)

    “It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible”
    (George Washington)

    “America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great. (Alexis de Tocqueville)

    We’ve seen these great quotes most of our lives, yet I see that now, the anarchist/leftist/atheist (“ala”) nutjobs have been trying to deny them online.
    But there are simply too many such quotes, all with similar bases, recorded in far too many places to try and deny them or the sentiments they represent.

    This country was built upon a Christian foundation; if Christ be removed, there is no longer a foundation, and it will collapse. (My own paraphrase.)

    • That’s the first thing I thought too. Wow, could anybody think any differently? Between his Muslim buddies and the Jews, it was getting dangerous to be Christian. Ultimately, they’re all Satanists.

    • ….and THAT sounds like an excellent reason for Trump to do a “house cleaning”;see what all these people are about,what they were involved in BEFORE O-boy brought ’em in. Anyone who isn’t 100% pro-America-send ’em packing. (Better yet-just send ’em-their replacements can pack their stuff and have it delivered.) There’s plenty of GOOD people who’d jump at a chance to work in the best Administration since Reagan.

  9. As a Christian, I have seen the changes taking place over the last decades, and am saddened by them. What saddens me even more is that much of this change has happened not under the nose of the church but with it’s help. The church has failed in so many ways, but mostly in following her commission. Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

    How can we as the body of Christ expect the people to be drawn to Him, if we ourselves are not doing the things that we should do? I don’t mean everybody, but the church as a whole has become so lukewarm that it is hard to tell many of them on a Sunday morning from a party on a Saturday night. I hope that you understand what I am saying.

    God has not given us suggestions in His Word, He has given us commands and promises. He forgives sin, of that there can be no doubt. But that doesn’t mean then that we should stop calling it sin, when we see it. By doing that, what we are actually doing is allowing people to condemn themselves to hell. 2 Corinthians 5:11a Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men;

    Perhaps we should look to history, and seek to find how Christians of 60 years ago or so, would approach the kinds of sinful behavior taking place today, and try to emulate them. We could do a lot worse, and are at times doing so. I do know this one thing, and that is that we must seek God’s face, in prayer, and humbly beg His forgiveness for this nation’s sinful direction, and ask for a healing and for Him to once again reign. If that does not happen, then nothing that we do will make a bit of difference.

    • When I was a younger man, with a better memory, I memorized a lot of Scripture. I did the entire book of 1 John, with a former pastor of mine. It is surprising how much it helps you in your daily walk, but then, I guess it should not surprise me that much. Psalm 119:11Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. I wish I could retain as much as when I was younger, but I know that it is simply a matter of determination. It is time for me to get my head on straighter and seek to do His work more, as we all can see that the time is short.

    This article is true as all of you know and we must turn this around. I have preached for eight years under Obama because it was so evident Thank God for President Trump.

  17. Obama was exactly what modern liberals and atheists were waiting for. A way to openly hate religion. He promoted it while trying to convinced us he was Christian. You don’t sit in the “church” he sat in for 20 years, marry the thing he did, promote Islam at every turn and to allow so many Islamic groups into the people’s White House and promote and support all the Muslims he possibly could while bowing to a Saudi King. He rarely attended church. Why? We’re the rumors true he had his own little mosque in OUR White House and prayed there instead? He had a Mao decoration bulb on a WH Christmas tree.
    He demanded Christian colleges to cover religious icons to be covered before his arrival. He told us this was no longer a Christian nation, but an Islamic nation. He surrounded himself with like minded people and they grew in strength.
    He created the perfect storm for people all over the world to deny Christ.
    He was exactly what many had been wanting for years.
    Christianity was already in a decline and the last 8 years was no help.
