President Obama has made an alarming call for Ireland to abandon both Catholic and Protestant schools. It should come as no surprise. This is in complete alignment with Obama’s actions in the United States. Obama is leading the government fight for the hearts and minds of the American people. The government wants to decide the rules and the morals Americans will abide by. Secularists like Obama believe everything is relative and morals are determined by the empathy felt by the ruling class. Religious people or people who are philosophically guided by Christian-Judeo values believe in absolutes and the rule of law.
While our president was luxuriating himself in Northern Ireland, he had the audacity to declare Ireland’s Christian schools divisive. Is Ireland’s business his business now?
For people who doubted that the HHS mandate was about the destruction of Christian schools, hospitals and charities – doubt no more.
Oddly, Obama said nothing against Madrases in this speech and never has.
President Obama made his statements while attending the G8 Summit in Ireland.
Obama wants both Protestants and Catholics in Ireland to abandon their Catholic and Protestant schools so they can all come together as secularists.
He said nothing about Islamic schools while there.
Obama wants the government to be our god because he believes in that. What he is saying to you through his HHS mandate is what he said to the Irish in essence – government, not god and the ruling class, not the Constitution are the ruling body over your mind and soul.
The HHS mandate is not about free birth control and abortifacients. Those can already be gotten for free through Planned Parenthood, clinics, and so on. The HHS mandate is about control and limiting the 1st Amendment.
The HHS mandate will bankrupt religious charities, schools, hospitals, clinics and other social welfare agencies beginning August 1st. Obama doesn’t care about the poor this will harm.
The mandate is about eliminating the government’s chief opponent in its striving for total control – Christians and Orthodox Jews. Currently, Christians are their biggest enemy in the fight for the souls of the American people.
Obama wants you to abandon your bible and your guns for the god of big government under the rule of benevolent despots like himself.
This is tyranny!
Obama prepared this speech in Ireland, this was no slip of the tongue. This was well-thought-out as were his recent attacks on Catholics, his biggest opponents in limiting religious liberty. Obama cleverly succeeded in dividing liberal religious Catholics from conservative Catholics over the HHS mandate. He turned others away from Catholics by demonizing them, painting them all with the same brush.
He will dismantle all churches if he can as he made clear in Ireland.
Obama will isolate religion from any public interaction or demonstration of faith in direct violation of the 1st Amendment. He will fine religious facilities out of existence and eventually remove their tax-exempt status if they don’t marry gay people or for some other trumped up cause. Then if gays get in his way, he will dispatch them. If Atheists get in his way, they will be dispatched too. Everyone will lose their 1st Amendment rights if he is able to begin whittling away at this unalienable right.!

US president undermines Catholic schools after Vatican Prefect praised them
The US President has made an alarming call for an end to Catholic education in Northern Ireland in spite of the fact that Archbishop Gerhard Müller told Scots that Catholic education was ‘a critical component of the Church.’
President Barack Obama (above), repeated the oft disproved claim that Catholic education increases division in front of an audience of 2000 young people, including many Catholics, at Belfast’s Waterfront hall when he arrived in the country this morning.
“If towns remain divided—if Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs, if we can’t see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to harden—that too encourages division and discourages cooperation,” the US president said. [And this is his business… how? Trick question. It isn’t. It is part of an agenda he has for the public square in the USA. He is trying to destroy conservative institutions.]
The US politician made the unfounded claim despite a top Vatican official spelling out the undeniable good done by Catholic education in a speech in Glasgow on Saturday and in his homily at Mass on Friday.
Archbishop Gerhard Müller , prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, told an audience in Scotland that Catholic education provided a rare place where ‘intellectual training, moral discipline and religious commitment would come together’ while giving the presitigous Cardinal Winning Lecture on Saturday to officially launch the St Andrews Foundation for Catholic teacher education at Glasgow University. [Did Müller manage to give his talk without a teleprompter?] During Mass at St Andrew’s Cathedral, Glasgow, on Friday night he said that ‘the Catholic school is vitally important … a critical component of the Church,’ adding that Catholic education provides young people with a wonderful opportunity to ‘grow up with Jesus.’
Mr Obama is in Northern Ireland to take part in the two day G8 Summit at the Lough Erne resort in Enneskillen.
Did he ever visit an Islamic nation and tell them religion was negatively impacting their lives?
Obama’s Audacity of Hope includes secularizing the world.
