Obama has consistently replaced Christian Holy Days with Muslim ones, continuing his own personal war on Christianity.
For anyone who is paying attention, this rant is not news, but it is a good reminder for us that the Dictator-In-Chief is not who he ever claimed to be. His fruits and actions showcase he is something entirely alien and foreign to the leadership of this country. Christianity is ignored, while Islam is promoted, proclamated, and honored in Obama’s White House.
Usually around Christmas time we can count on a variety of stories
where bizarre leftist worshipping of political correctness imposes itself
on civilization with obsessive efforts to eradicate the word “Christmas”
itself, and public displays of faith.
You know the drill: it’s “Holiday Trees” and “Holiday Season”, or
“Winter Celebration”. The left is thrilled we are a nation right now
where Occupy Wall Street’s nihilistic thugs command the public square,
while the nativity scene and baby Jesus remain banned as “offensive” to
one miserable group or another.
This, of course, has nothing to do with fairness, and everything to
do with the atheistic and narcissistic left trying to impose its
hopeless, godless view of the world on everyone else.
It’s one thing for the usual liberal Gestapos or the odd atheist to
pull that craven cart through society, but now even more disturbingly it
appears President Barack Obama himself isn’t even remotely trying to hide
his contempt for Christianity and its importance to our great nation.
Just a few days ago, Obama and the White House went out of its way to
issue a special proclamation for Eid al-Adha, the Muslim “festival of
In an official White House statement, the president and first lady
gushed about Eid and congratulated Muslims involved in the Hajj
All of that is well and good, but what struck me about this special
message was the reminder that this very same president deliberately
ignored Easter this year, the most holy of Christian holidays, by
snubbing Christians here and around the world.
In April there was disbelief that the White House issued no
proclamation about Easter, let alone a personal statement by the
president and his wife.
By comparison, the White House has released statements recognizing
the observance of major Muslim holidays and released statements in 2010
on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha. On top of neglecting
Easter, the president also failed to release a statement marking Good
Friday. The White House did, however, release an eight-paragraph
statement heralding Earth Day, which fell on Good Friday.
Most of us recognized a problem with a man whose spiritual leader and
father figure ran a church where pleading to God to “damn” America was
standard, but it now seems Obama’s contempt for this nation is personal
and isn’t even something he bothers to mask.
In addition to gestures by this president indicating a personal
contempt for the Christian foundation of this country, in the past 72
hours Americans were dumbfounded by the announcement of a “Christmas Tree
Tax” by Obama’s Department of Agriculture. Only after significant
outrage was directed at the president and federal government for such an
astounding proposal, was a “delay” in the implementation of the tax
Really, imagine if the federal government even contemplated, let
alone announced, a tax on Muslim prayer rugs. For some reason, however,
taxing a popular symbol of Christianity used during a significant holiday
was thought to be perfectly fine by this administration.
Oh sure, the Fed is saying it was a marketing fee for the Christmas
tree “industry”, to supposedly improve the image of the apparently much
hated and dreaded tree. The fact is it was a tax meant to fund a board
appointed by a federal agency targeting one religion and one religion
only — Christianity.
There is a precedent for this. In the Muslim world it’s called the
“Jizya”, a tax levied on non-Muslim citizens in the Islamic world,
allowing them to practice their religion while being “protected” by the
In our case, it seems more like an atheistic federal government
looking for tribute by those pesky Christians who dare to think there is
a higher authority than the permanent political class.
While I believe our main problem is the fact that our president is
simply narcissistic with a chip on his shoulder, I also believe his
narcissism keeps him from being able to embrace faith of any sort,
contributing to the mess of a president that he is. You see, when
everything revolves around you or is about you, that leaves no room for
anything higher and beyond yourself.
Obama’s pandering to Muslims is just that, pandering, while his
rather apparent hostility toward Christianity, Israel, and Jews is a
natural reaction for anyone who has contempt for the United States in
We can point to a multitude of mistakes and incompetence, overall
corruption of our political class, and downright criminality when it
comes to the reasons why our nation is in such dire straits right now,
economically and culturally.
But all of that actually comes down to one simple issue — whether or
not the politicians we entrust with this nation genuinely believe in a
power higher than themselves, believe there are repercussions to their
actions, and that as Americans our rights are given to us by God, not by
The Founding Fathers understood this and created a nation rooted in
that divine principle. The American left and Obama, their community
organizer-in-chief, are determined to chip away at that fundamental
value. It’s up to us to not let that happen.
