World Net Daily has an interesting piece about some comments made by Obama. Obama said:
“Whatever we once were, we’re no longer just a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”
True, America is a diverse nation, now filled with peoples of many different religious backgrounds. But Obama’s comments imply a sense of hostility toward conservative Christians, especially when paired with this comment:
“Somehow, somewhere along the way, faith stopped being used to bring us together and started being used to drive us apart. It got hijacked. Part of it’s because of the so-called leaders of the Christian Right, who’ve been all too eager to exploit what divides us.”
Are there fanatical, hate-filled people who rail against gays, liberals, Muslims, and a lot of other people? Some, of course. But liberals like Obama are very quick to accuse those who (gasp) actually have convictions about morality and absolute truth. The problem (which I was reading about earlier today) is the liberal atheistic mindset that sees acceptable “religion” as some fuzzy God-accepts-everyone-whatever-they-believe unitarianism. But if Jesus was the Way, the Truth, and the Life as He said He was, then that means Muslims who say Allah is the only god and Mormons who say Joseph Smith has brought us a new testament are wrong. If A is true, B must be false. Does that mean we hate each other? Not at all…we simply say what we believe, in the belief that telling others what we believe to be truth is the ultimate display of love. If anyone dares condemn sin or voice a belief in one way to God, liberals are quick to dish out some friendly terms like “hate speech” and “hate monger.” Why are liberals so hateful against those who simply don’t accept other faiths as true, but defend the rights of terrorists who delight in beheading infidels?
