Obama’s Culture of Death Part 1 of 2
The relentless pursuit of the truth – www.cinopsbegone.com – Saturday, December 10, 2011
This is a classic and the stark truth. Jeffrey T. Kuhner is a columnist at “The Washington Times” and president of the “Edmund Burke Institute”. The editorial first appeared in the “The Washington Times.” [It was posted in The Wanderer – www.thewandererpress.com – August 4, 2011]
“President Obama is on the verge of achieving his liberal revolution. His goal is to destroy our Judeo-Christian culture and replace it with European-style radical secularism.
“The administration is now contemplating forcing health insurance companies to provide free birth control – including the “morning-after” pill – as part of Obamacare. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is seriously considering adding contraception to the list of services that must be fully covered by insurers without charging copayments. [As of today Obama has done this.]
“Obamacare is predicated upon massive tax increases to finance universal coverage. It is more than an unsustainable multi-trillion dollar entitlement program – it is an assault upon traditional America. This proposal panders to the feminist lobby, especially Planned Parenthood – the nation’s largest provider of “family planning” and abortion services. Free birth control has nothing to do with “protecting women’s health.” Rather it is about consolidating the sexual revolution. The post-1960s left has been at war with Christianity. Its aim is to erect a utopian socialist state – one built upon the rubble of Judeo-Christian civilization.
“In short, liberals want to create a world without God and sexual permissiveness is their battering ram. Promoting widespread contraception is essential to forging a pagan society based on consequences-free sex.
“The proposal is profoundly immoral. Contraception violates the natural moral order. It decouples sexual intercourse from its main purpose: procreation. It entrenches the hedonistic ethic that sex is about recreation and individual gratification… This is why practically every major religion and most cultures have rightly believed that birth control, pornography, homosexuality, and adultery are wrong.
“They threaten the basic institution of society: the traditional family. The family existed before the state; its importance transcends the state. Hence, our ancestors understood that moral standards must be upheld, not demolished. The breakdown of the family inevitably leads to social collapse.
“Moreover, subsidizing free birth control violates the conscience rights of devout Christian, Orthodox Jews, and Muslims. It compels them to have their hard-earned taxpayer dollars towards go funding behavior that their religious faith condemns as sinful and an abomination – especially, the “morning –after” pill, whose us is a possible form of abortion since it may terminate a conceived child. By adopting the proposal, Obamacare would not only assault the fundamental freedoms of religious Americans, it would make them complicit in Mr. Obama’s cultural liberalism…”
