Should Obama Show the Same Respect and Tolerance Toward the Christian Faith that he has for his muslim brothers
WASHINGTON, —Today White House Spokesperson Jay Carney talked about religious tolerance and respecting all religious beliefs in regard to the anti-American violence spreading around the Muslim world.
However, President Obama has shown a profound lack of respect and tolerance toward the Christian faith by forcing Christians to abandon their deeply held religious beliefs in dictating compliance with the HHS mandate.
This mandate would force people of faith and conscience to violate their core beliefs by having to purchase abortion-inducing drugs and sterilization in their health care plans in direct violation of their religious values and teachings of their Church.
Mr. President religious tolerance and respect should apply to all faith traditions. Not just Islamic extremists.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states,
“In today’s news conference, the White House talked about religious freedom and religious tolerance. If that is true, Christians are asking that President Obama show the same respect and tolerance to the Christian community that he is showing to Islamic extremists and terrorists.
“President Obama has shown a profound lack of respect and tolerance to the Christian community by forcing people of faith to purchase abortion-inducing drugs and sterilization through their health care plans.
“Sadly, this forces Christians to violate their deeply held core values, religious beliefs and historic teachings of the Church.
“It is difficult to believe that President Obama would crush religious freedom and liberty through this HHS mandate and yet turn around and talk about religious respect and tolerance regarding the making of this anti-Islamic film.
“One could only imagine the violence and uproar around the Islamic world if President Obama forced Muslims to violate their deeply held religious views.”
