Barack Obama claims to be a Christian.
But millions of Americans have always doubted this claim.
And his recent actions may be a hint he will finally reveal his true religious beliefs.
Whenever anyone questions Obama’s Christianity, the media has rushed to his defense.
But so much of Obama’s agenda conflicts with Christian belief, that it’s almost impossible to reconcile the two.
And Obama himself has provided this ammunition with his constant attacks on Christianity.
He mocked Christians by telling them to “get off their high horse” over Islamic extremism because of their crusades which took place hundreds of years ago.
Writing for The Resurgent, Erick Erickson notes that so much of Obama’s final days in office revolve around him finally pulling off the mask and revealing himself to be the radical leftist conservatives have always claimed him to be.
Since he is finally admitting his true political beliefs, Erickson wonders if this means Obama will finally admit he isn’t really a Christian at all.
Citing the litany of anti-Christian policies and bigotry Obama has pushed, Erickson writes:
“Can we finally acknowledge also that he is not the Christian he has pretended, for politics’ sake, to be. Being a person of faith is still a thing in the United States even if the left is currently struggling against it. It would have been a bridge too far for many people to vote for an atheist President so Barack Obama played the role of Christian.
He told Democrats, who four years later would boo God at the Democratic convention, that the GOP did not have a monopoly on faith. He hired a faith coordinator to do outreach. Then he and his administration systematically set out to persecute Christians in the United States and ignore them around the world.
- His administration argued before the Supreme Court that the freedom of religion was really only a right to worship.
- They insisted that faith based organizations pay for abortions.
- They allowed the gay community to sue Christian organizations trying to adhere to their believes. The latest is a gay man suing a Catholic school in North Carolina that dismissed him after he decided to marry a man.
- The President went to great pains to play down Christianity when it conflicted with Islam.
- The President and much of his administration refused for years to acknowledge violence against Christians around the world.
For eight years, President Obama has talked a good game on faith while being at war with it. He has allowed those in his employ to harass Christian businesses, Christian schools, and Christian non-profits. He has presided over a Democratic Party that has increasingly and proudly displayed bigotry and intolerance toward people of faith.
After eight years, perhaps the Democrats will finally acknowledge what has been increasingly apparent in the past several years — Barack Obama used Christianity as a political tool when it suited him, but was never the Christian he claimed to be. He can, as he leaves office, finally admit the only god he believes in is himself. That might mean that others who’ve hidden behind Barack Obama’s claims to make their own will now be exposed as frauds, but so be it. Even Judas had to eventually be exposed. It’s all part of the plan.”
Under Obama, the Democratic Party has become increasingly secular and hostile to the Christian faith.
While Obama and liberals bend over backwards to defend Muslims, Christians are the targets of scorn and government persecution.
Christians and Christian businesses are being targeted because they don’t support abortion, homosexual marriage, or allowing mentally ill men in the girl’s bathroom just because they decide to identify as a woman.
No Obama action, speech, nor policy is consistent with his claim to be a Christian.
Millions of Americans have rejected Obama’s claim to be a Christian.
And if Erick Erickson is correct, Obama just may be about to prove them right.
