Bruce Hodges’ letter to the editor published Aug. 20 titled “President has compassion” is, if not blasphemous, then hypocritical at best.
Hodges erroneously cited biblical principles to back up his premise.
When one observes President Barack Obama’s unwillingness to accommodate America’s four-century long religious conscience protection through his attempts to require Catholics to go against their own doctrines and beliefs, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Catholic. But that characterization would not be correct. Although he has recently singled out Catholics, he has equally targeted traditional Protestant beliefs during the past six years.
So, since he has attacked Catholics and Protestants, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Christian.
But that, too, would be inaccurate. He has been equally disrespectful in his appalling treatment of religious Jews in general and Israel in particular. So perhaps the most accurate description of his antipathy toward Catholics, Protestants, religious Jews, and the Jewish nation would be to characterize him as anti-biblical.
And then when his hostility toward biblical people of faith is contrasted with his preferential treatment of Muslims and Muslim nations, it further strengthens the accuracy of describing Obama as anti-biblical. In fact, there have been numerous clearly documented times when his pro-Islam positions have been the cause of his anti-biblical actions.
Don’t just take my word for it. To obtain the numerous recorded factual accounts research biblical expert David Barton’s article “America’s Most Biblically-Hostile U.S. President.”
