Phyllis Schlafly delivers another of her usual hysterical screeds, this time about how President Obama, who speaks constantly about his own religious faith, is trying to destroy all public expressions of faith in the United States.
When Barack Obama promised to “fundamentally transform the United States” we could not have anticipated the extreme transformations he would seek. The evidence is rolling in that he is determined to transform America into a totally secular land where religion is permitted only within the walls of a church, but is banned in every public place, public gathering and public school…
Barack Obama is trying to morph our traditional religious liberty to the lesser scope of freedom of worship. That means worship only inside a church, or maybe a synagogue, but not any public affirmation of belief in God.
And now, a word from reality. In February Obama spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast, talking about how his faith informed his politics. Only a few weeks later, he hosted a prayer breakfast to celebrate Easter at the White House. And one month after that, he issued a declaration of the National Day of Prayer, as he has done every year in office. Funny, he seems not to have noticed his own alleged campaign to destroy all public affirmations of belief in God.
But those are “facts,” which must never get in the way of a good paranoid rant. Not to worry, though, Schlafly’s ignorant followers are allergic to facts.
