In a snub to the Judeo-Christian values held by America for centuries, the messiah has declared that he will not honor the traditional National Day Of Prayer with any official White House activities, as has been the custom of his predecessors. What could possibly be the motivation behind such a decision by a man who “prays to Jesus every night,” as he claimed during the campaign?
Perhaps he doesn’t like the competition Jesus provides. After all, Obama is “The One” and sharing the stage with “The Son” might confuse the media about who is really important. Maybe he doesn’t think praying for America will do any good, since it’s his belief that everything happening in this country is our own fault, as he proudly proclaims every time he speaks to foreign leaders.
Most likely however, is the reality that he might “offend” those who hold to different religious beliefs.
It’s no mystery to the casual observer that Obama is a big believer in one-world globalism. For instance, during the “Obama World Tour – 2008,” the chosen one made the declaration that he was a “citizen of the world” before thousands of cheering German socialists, and later pledged to “rejoin the world community.” He’s on record as being in favor of a diminished leadership role for America in exchange for greater United Nations influence on social, political and religious issues. However, his global mindset is only part of the reason he made this decision.
One of the fastest growing religions in the world is the Muslim faith, clear evidence of which can already be seen in Europe. It is also no mystery that some of the world’s greatest international challenges can be traced to nations where the Muslim religion is predominant. And during the campaign, it became know that Obama had very close connections to the Muslim faith, possibly even being Muslim himself. In fact, his election led one Muslim publication to declare, “It’s Our Time.”
Now, let’s add Obama’s weaknesses in the area of foreign policy. He bows to the King of Saudi Arabia. He hobnobs with communist dictators. He insults the Prime Minister of our closest ally. He agrees to meet unconditionally with the leader of Iran – the sworn enemy of the United States and Israel. He offers to disarm defense systems to appease Russia. Well, you get the idea….
Lastly, we need to consider Obama’s theology – or lack thereof. In an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times, Obama made this claim concerning his “deep faith.”
I’m rooted in the Christian tradition. I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.
His theological position is totally opposed by those who place their faith squarely at the feet of Jesus, saying essentially that all people of faith — Christians, Jews, Muslims, animists, everyone — know the same God.
When we consider the increase in the number of Muslims around the world, the inexperience of how to deal with other nations, the almost compulsive need of Obama to please others, his global outlook and his New Age theology, we can conclude that his decision concerning the National Day of Prayer is nothing more than a move to demonstrate that he doesn’t want America’s Judeo-Christian beliefs to offend others.
Congress established the National Day of Prayer in 1952, so Obama has little choice in issuing the proclamation, but his actions clearly demonstrate he doesn’t support it. Now we know why.
