WND – Dobson Calls Obama the “Anti-Religious Freedom President”

Selected Article Excerpt:

James Dobson, one of America’s most-loved Christian personalities, founder of Family Talk Radio, a courtroom opponent of Obamacare and, most recently, the National Day of Prayer speaker who called Barack Obama the “abortion president,” is doubling down.

Obama is “the anti-religious freedom president,” Dobson writes in a letter to constituents that is being released online.

Although he starts off citing atheist activist Mikey Weinstein, founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and all his public condemnations and court challenges to Christianity, Dobson says Weinstein isn’t the biggest danger to the faithful in America.

“Weinstein, for all his bluster, is not the primary threat to the free expression of religion. Despite the pandering he receives from the mainstream media, the greater danger is posed by our federal government,” Dobson warns.

“It seeks to limit or weaken religious liberty and to ‘fundamentally transform’ this great nation. That was an oft-quoted campaign slogan by candidate Barack Obama during his presidential bid in 2008. We now know what he meant by it,” he said.

“Among other things, he was targeting religious freedom and set about accomplishing that from the beginning. That was the activity to which I objected strenuously during my comments in Washington. I offer no apologies for expressing those views now. The effort to force Christians to violate their consciences must be opposed with all vigor, regardless of the consequences – primarily because it is unconstitutional. Christians are being chastised, dismissed, harangued and sued for daring to practice their deeply held convictions in the public square. Family Talk is among those who have been pressed against a wall,” he writes.

    “The effort to force Christians to violate their consciences must be opposed”? Absolutely! We can do this Dr. Dobson by defending a child’s fundamental right to be moral, to possess, keep and maintain a biblical, Christian informed conscience. In addition, a child has a basic right to inhabit safe moral public and private spaces. The conscience, is essential in the American experiment of self government. Before a people, any people can have self government…”of the people, by the people, for the people…” they must be individually self governing. How, can you be self governing without a conscience? What is a conscience without morals? Every culture and nation has a moral code. In America, our founding fathers and mothers were Christian biblicists. This is the code that invented America and Christian virtue is the true spirit of America. Those who attack the biblical code that informs the conscience of a child, are attacking the essence of self government and America itself. Defend a child’s right to be moral and you will defend America.
