President Barack Obama dared to say he is committed to protecting religious liberty after crushing it with his HHS mandate that forces Catholic and other religious institutions to pay for contraception, abortion and sterilization.
He stated this in a campaign video published on September 17, 2012
What President Barack Obama said in his video:
“… my commitment to protecting religious liberty is and always will be unwavering.”
“… my commitment to destroying religious liberty is and always will be unwavering.”
What Biblical example shows President Obama’s false witness?
Isaiah 5:20 “Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness: that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.”
Why does President Obama’s false witness apply to Isaiah 5:20?
We know President Obama is forcing us to pay for these mandated so-called services. We know his use of the word “protecting” (protecting something is “good”) is deliberate false witness. We know his actions against the Church and religious institutions are “destroying” (destroying something is “evil”) their religious freedom. Therefore, by his actions, we know he means destroying when saying protecting. That is in fact, calling evil… good.
See the video below at minutes 1:00 to 1:10 to hear him say it for yourself:
Now, what would a Pope other than Benedict XVI (click) say about men like President Obama?
“For, indeed, although the socialists, stealing the very Gospel itself with a view to deceive more easily the unwary, have been accustomed to distort it so as to suit their own purposes, nevertheless so great is the difference between their depraved teachings and the most pure doctrine of Christ that none greater could exist: “for what participation bath justice with injustice or what fellowship bath light with darkness?”

O Holy Spirit, strengthen us to defend all that is holy.
