Is Obama America's Most Biblically Hostile President?

When observing President Obama’s unwillingness to accommodate America’s four-century-long religious conscience protection through his attempts to require Catholics to go against their own doctrines and beliefs, it is tempting to say that he is anti-Catholic. But that characterization would not be correct.

Although Obama has recently singled out Catholics, he has equally targeted traditional Protestant beliefs over the past four years. So since he has attacked Catholics and Protestants, it is tempting to say that he is anti-Christian. But that, too, would be inaccurate.

The president has been equally disrespectful in his appalling treatment of religious Jews in general and Israel in particular. So perhaps the most accurate description of his antipathy toward Catholics, Protestants, religious Jews and the Jewish nation would be to characterize him as anti-biblical. And then when his hostility toward biblical people of faith is contrasted with his preferential treatment of Muslims and Muslim nations, it further strengthens the accuracy of the anti-biblical descriptor. In fact, there have been numerous clearly documented times when Obama's pro-Islam positions have been the cause of his anti-biblical actions.
